I’m Actually Learning to Love It!

As a nurse, you know there are days I ask God if nursing is what I’m really supposed to be doing. And each time he shows me the answer. I get my “yes,” as well as my “why.” See, it’s not about me, and usually, when I question Him, it’s because of emotions. Someone hurtContinue reading “I’m Actually Learning to Love It!”

Black Women

There is something special about Black mothers. Looking back at slavery, we have had our bodies taken by the white slave masters while forcing our Black men to stand by helplessly and watch. We have mothered our children and that of our oppressors. We have taken care of everyone’s children, literally. We nurture, we careContinue reading “Black Women”

Black Lives Matter

I was trying to figure out what exactly I wanted to say. Because quite honestly, Black Lives DON’T matter or else we wouldn’t be facing the constant injustices and murders of our Black and Brown sisters and brothers. When the life and well-being of animals supersede that of a human being. Well, Houston, we haveContinue reading “Black Lives Matter”

What If God Needed Me

What if God needed me to be the vessel, I could not see myself being with the natural eye? What if my feelings of hopelessness weren’t meant for me to feel defeated but to be enlightened? I often question God as to my purpose and always welcome Him to use me as a vessel. But,Continue reading “What If God Needed Me”

With A Heavy Heart

I am writing this evening with a heavy heart. I should be sleep by now because my intention was to work on my business then hit the sheets. Well, I did work on my business and so that you know you can find my “ShesThatRN” podcast on Anchor and Spotify under that name. It’s myContinue reading “With A Heavy Heart”

The Importance of “Presence and Touch”

I thought I’d take a moment to stop and talk about how important it is to have a “presence and touch.” Many times we go about our day, and we take for granted our interactions with others. It’s just another day, another hug, another kiss, another look into someone’s eyes until it isn’t. I amContinue reading “The Importance of “Presence and Touch””

What Happens When You Psych Yourself Out?

I’m glad you asked that question because I have firsthand knowledge of the answer. I spend a great deal of time making myself physically sick by psyching myself out of things that haven’t even taken place yet. On the day of my launch, I was ready to call it quits. I told myself every reasonContinue reading “What Happens When You Psych Yourself Out?”

Today I Launch

I’ve been working tirelessly for the past 2 years, trying to reach so many goals. I’ve been silently working on many projects. Many in the process but not completed. In the meantime, I’m having a Virtual Launch tonight with custom products I’ve designed to show appreciation to nurses. It’s for nurses who want to treatContinue reading “Today I Launch”

Real Quick

I thought I’d come on to speak on how life’s been for me since this pandemic. Let me start off by saying, “I am safe, thank God.” Not all clinical workers, laymen, and others on the frontlines can say that. Everywhere now has a real risk for exposure, but at my healthcare center, we’ve managedContinue reading “Real Quick”
