Healthy Lifestyle Reboot

UNITED STATES—The New Year seems like ions ago, but it only has been 2 months to be exact. Like you, my resolutions that started off the New Year are done and over. I went pretty strong for about a month and then everything started to fall apart. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to stay committed; it’s the fact that...

The Gucci Debacle

UNITED STATES—I wanted to marinate a bit on this issue before bringing it to the public forum because it’s much bigger than a designer name. I’m referring to the issue involving Gucci, and that sweater which many considered to be racist as it resembled blackface. Yes, I’ve seen the sweater and how it slipped the cracks, I have no...

Oscar Outrage

UNITED STATES—Hearing that the Academy Awards would not have a host for the 2019 ceremony did not stun me to say the least. However, after news broke this week about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences broadcasting awards for 4 categories: film editing, cinematography, makeup and hairstyling and live-action short via commercials are was speechless. The notion...

Pure Frustration

UNITED STATES—I know I’m not the only person who has experienced this, where you have a day or a week that you are absolutely frustrated to the core. Now, let me be crystal clear: I said frustrated, not anger. Anger and frustration are two different things. Anger is an inability to control how you feel; there is a level...

Are You Prepared For Retirement?

UNITED STATES—This weekend I was forced to have a tough conversation with myself. I’m in my 30s and it came to a realization that I’m not preparing for the future. I mean my parents are near the verge of retirement and I have members in my family who have reached retirement age, and it lead me to question if...

What About The Workers?

UNITED STATES—The federal government shutdown has now surpassed a record at 26 days as of Wednesday, January 14. As an American, I could care less about President Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Lindsay Graham, Mitch McConnell, Republicans or the Democrats. Do you know who I care about? I care about all of the furloughed federal workers who did...

Endless Thoughts

UNITED STATES—I recently had an interesting conversation with someone about rather it is fully possible to control your thoughts. I’m a firm believer of positive thoughts, but you’re not going to sit here and tell me that someone can be positive 24/7; I just don’t believe it and I know it’s not possible. It’s like comparing yourself to Ned...

Finance Preparation For 2019

UNITED STATES—Christmas is over, the New Year has ushered itself in and for many Americans it will be time to tackle a load of debt. For some it might be way larger than others. However, do not panic, take a deep breath. The biggest mistake so many people make is not trying to come up with a plan; you...

The Government Shut Down Will It End?

UNITED STATES—Well it has been close to two weeks since the federal government has gone into a partial shutdown. I note partial because the government has not completely shut down, but there are plenty of Americans who are impacted by the closure. It looks like state and national parks are feeling the brunt of the closure first, but my...
