Making A Major Lifestyle Change

UNITED STATES—In life, sometimes you have to take a moment and re-examine what is going on in your life. A lot of the time when people discuss lifestyle changes they assume it is geared mainly to eating and dieting. While I think that is one aspect of life that is important it is not the only one. A diet...

Social Media Fiasco

UNITED STATES—I wish I could understand so many people’s obsession with social media. However, I just don’t get it. For some reason, it seems like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr and so many other platforms to showcase their life or express their public opinion. We all know the news of the week, were the remarks that President Donald Trump...

Open Your Eyes

UNITED STATES—Have you ever been in a position where you know something is wrong, but for reasons you cannot fathom you refuse to open your eyes to see what is staring you directly in the face? I know I’m not the only person. We all have those ‘moments’ where the light is shined on you. You see or realize...

Life Is Too Unpredictable!

UNITED STATES—I always say life will test you in ways sometimes that you never expect. Things are thrown in your direction that you never expected. I don’t know what to say about the past few weeks, with work (not one job, but two), school, family, death and so much more, I can’t believe I’m still standing. I pride myself...

Family Matters Most In Distressing Times

UNITED STATES—It seems like it always takes a tragedy to bring people together. I just literally had to go to a funeral for my uncle who passed away unexpectedly. Well to be honest, he was sick, but not many people knew because my mother’s side of the family has been estranged. It seems that people get into tiffs over...

Career Change Dynamics

UNITED STATES—Something extremely interesting has happened to me in the last week. I have literally had 3 to 4 people tell me that a career change is on the horizon for me. At first I seriously wanted to laugh it off, but then I opened a fortune cookie that said, “You will soon experience a career change.” At first...

Death Looms In Crazy Ways

UNITED STATES—There is one thing in life that we are all promised: death. A tragedy recently transpired in my personal life where a close family member passed away. It was all the more tragic because it was a sudden death that was unexpected. I have been to more funerals in my life than I can count and to be...

Good Customer Service Matters!

UNITED STATES—We have talked countless times in the past about how bad customer service tends to transpire at many of our favorite retailers, companies that provide services and so much more. When you have a bad experience it totally frustrates you in a way that makes you want to never visit that establishment or utilize that service ever again....

Racial Profiling Still Exists People

UNITED STATES—I felt the need to talk about this column because of the recent incident involving musician Sza at a visit to the Sephora store in Calabasas, California. This column is a difficult one to say the least, but it’s a conversation that we must have. It seems still in the year 2019, race is still a major issue...

Mental Labor Vs. Physical Labor

UNITED STATES—It has been a question that I’ve debated for years and I get plenty of blow back from people that I know all the time. Is a job that requires mental strength more exhaustive than a job that requires physical strength? It is a very loaded question and to be honest there is no clear-cut right or wrong...
