The forbidden word?

Are you ready? It’s celibacy!

In this over-sexualized and easy access culture, celibacy is a HIGHLY forbidden word.

My journey with this word has been on-going for quite some time now, unfortunately, with many restarts. I include this to say that it’s never, ever too late to jump back on the horse, or not– if you catch my drift.

I read this scripture in Proverbs “And the complacency of fools will destroy them,” and in a matter of minutes a friend sent me a link to an article about being active for 2017.

Coincidence? I think not.

You ever have a million thoughts running through your mind all at once?

That was me this morning.

I have a few creative projects up my sleeve, this time for Gold, The Label. My time lately has been divided between school (of course),¬†, as well as other projects I’m involved in. This is all fantastic and I really do count it all joy. The only problem is, I haven’t had a moment to express my creativity for my own projects. This feeling sometimes can be so suffocating because you have the ability as well as the resources but truly no time to create.

2016 so far has proven to be the Year of the Baby!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve personally lost count of how many people I know, or know of that are with child!


Before I go any further I would like to first say, that I think children are a beautiful blessing and can bring about purpose as well as countless joy. I don’t believe that they are punishment of any sort but a GIFT from our Most High God.


Back in 2008 I moved to Toronto to ¬†further my education. Toronto is a melting pot of races and cultures as many have migrated here. Almost 70% of the people you encounter are a blend of two races resulting in a biracial individual. Some have more complex mixes with both parents being biracial. Due to the high level of multiracial people in such a small proximity, naturally, when meeting someone who doesn’t visually reflect a certain ethnicity it’s typical to ask, “Whats your background?”
