    The Untethered Soul Book Review

    I had to write a book review for The Untethered Soul! I came across this book written by Michael Singer on Pinterest (yes, Pinterest might just be the next best place for book suggestions). The excerpt sold me because I resonated with it so deeply. People say things like, “You know we don’t talk about that subject around your father.” There are all these rules about things that are not supposed to happen outside because they could cause disturbance inside. Living like this allows for very little spontaneous joy, enthusiasm, and excitement for life. Most people just go from day to day protecting themselves and making sure nothing goes too…

    Are Creatives Really Creative?

    creativity/ˌkriːeɪˈtɪvɪti The use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness. Most creative make creating content look easy. Creating content is difficult. Working in a creative environment has illuminated so many light bulbs. There are so many things that have come to light and one that sparkles with so much light is: your creativity is suppressed. How do you put a creative person in a box? How do you place restrictions in creativity? How do you stop me from using blue and rather, only stick to orange and green? A conversation that my co-workers and I were having about children really brought light to this topic, children are not…

    Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

    There’s something about the freedom of listening to what you want to at the time that suits you. Podcasts are treated as the new kid on the block when in fact, they’ve been around for some time. It’s amazing that we can hold conversations about a wide array of topics that would oftentimes be deemed too taboo to touch on on national radio. Podcasts give you the power to be unashamedly you and bring out content that is not filtered for your audience. Get on board!

    WE’RE GOING TO NEED MORE WINE – GABRIELLE UNION

    The first time I was introduced to Gabrielle Union was when I was a teenager and renting movies was still the in thing. I remember watching Bring it On and being fascinated by this Isis character. Wow, I thought. She’s so fearless! Continue reading for the book review.  I’m not sure what compelled me to read her memoir, We’re Going to Need More Wine. I found myself digging into the book, unable to stop reading and boy am I glad that I couldn’t stop! This book is raw. It’s Union showing us her life so vividly it’s easy to envision what you’re reading. Things that you would think too personal…

    THERE’S THAT WORD AGAIN – SUBSERVIENCE

    There’s something about power, isn’t there? I’m not quite sure where to begin. There’s power surrounding me all of the time except, perhaps when I am back at home. To go outside is to face “order” from a bunch of people who possibly wouldn’t even care once I am laid to rest.   See, I have a problem with power – with putting people on pedestals. It’s also rather funny because I only recognised this in my last year of high school. I was like, f**k it, why am I even here listening to all of this and obeying all of these rules? I should be at home on the…
