Introducing...

I've had the pleasure of participating in some wonderful tweet chats in 2016.  However, I cannot even write this post without sending some love to Selina Weekes, founder of Manik Mag and #HautiesTalk (which happened long before 2016).  Ok, let me get back to it! 

There have been some wonderful tweet chats I've had the pleasure of joining.  Many of them are across the pond in the UK, but that has just helped me to grow my blogging community.  In fact, I have so many chats I participate in that I must keep them in my calendar so I don't miss a single one! Because I've had so much fun and I'm looking for more ways to grow this blog, I've decided to start my own chat!  Let me introduce to you #TPDchat!!!  



Now, this is going to be so much more than a just a chat that happens twice a month.  This is going to be a way for me to get a better connection with other bloggers.  Bloggers have helped me so much by retweeting and liking my blog posts.  They have also been instrumental in leaving comments and giving advice.  Therefore, this will be my official hashtag for you to use when you want a blog post retweeted (after I have read it, or course) and this will be what we will use while participating in my tweet chats.  Just like many of the others I participate in, these are open to anyone who wish to participate.  Just because you don't blog doesn't mean you are not blogging now and it doesn't mean you are not reading blogs. 

#TPDchat will be launching in January and I am so excited!  I know this is happening really
quick, but the first chat will be happening January 4 at 6:00pm EST.  I'm pretty sure that is 11:00pm UK, but I hope some of my friends over the pond will be willing to have a late night and participate.  The second chat of the month will take place on January 21 at 2:00pm EST.  I know it's midday Saturday, but I really hope many of you will be able to join me.


I've told you about the upcoming chat dates and times, the hashtag, and how I plan on using this platform to help the blogging community.  With all things, we, the participants, make things good or bad.  I know I'm going to put in the work, but I hope you are also willing to put in the work to join in.  I'm not just talking about joining in with the blog, I'm talking about you diving into the blog.  This next part is probably the most exciting thing I wanted to share with all of you today.  

I want you to host some of these chats!  Yes, you!!!  It's so simple to find out how!!!  Once you contact me, we will find out what topic you want to discuss and when you can host.  Once we have those and some other details ironed out, you will be ready to host!  

I'm absolutely thrilled about this new adventure and I am really hoping you are too!  I look forward to making #TPDchat great and another place for people to connect, grow, and learn from each other.

Many Years of Thursdays

Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault

I had a blog post ready to type.  I was going to tell you about my birthday month and all the fun I had during March celebrating with family and friends.  And then, Thursday, March 28 happened and Grey's Anatomy hit me with Episode 19 of Season 15 titled Silent All These Years.  As hard as it was for me to admit my story, when I posted tweets about being triggered and the experience, I finally typed WE instead of simply saying you.  

I along with many people were triggered by that episode that night.  Quite frankly, it's hard for me to write this post, but I'm going to push through.  

My typical Thursday looks like this - work, workout, do a devotion/bible study, eat, shower.  At 8pm EST, I am only communicating via Twitter because I'm going all the way in with the live tweets and enjoying my time with the Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 viewers.  It's part of my boundary that I am strongly holding on to this year.  However, that part…

POWER

Disclaimer: I will be mentioning my Christianity.  It's not the full topic of conversation, but it will be in here in a few spots.  Proceed with caution.  

"He has kids because God knew when you met him, you wouldn't act right."
This isn't the first time this has been said to me.  Well, not in these words.  It's always something and then you wouldn't act right.  Now the first time this was said to me, I got a bit spicy.  As it has been a continued phrase in my life, I honestly haven't paid it that much attention.  Why?  I know my relationship with myself and I know my relationship with Christ.  So, I did tell you that religion was not going to be a big thing in here, so I won't drop scripture on you.  However, we are going to have a little chat about energy. 

I've been extremely in tune with myself lately.  I've accepted a few things about myself...

I'm an empath I'm healing I'm on a path of discovery
Did you noticed how I took…

Painful

Ayesha Curry has been the talk of all the innanets for about two weeks now.  I'm not going to dwell on this because I have other things to discuss.  However, I will say that I wished she would have kept that in a private family conversation.  Just because you are in the light doesn't mean it all has to be in the light.  Also, I get it.  We all want to feel wanted.  Even the people clowning on her want to be wanted.  But go on ahead and continue to go off about her living a lavish life when you cannot figure out how to live your best one.  Moving on...

I didn't do my first Wednesday post this month.  Yall are just going to be hearing from me once in May.  But, I try to be as transparent as I am comfy with.  So, without telling too much, let's just say the end of April and the first 12 days of May have been a horrible hell that I didn't even know could exist.  However, I'm moving along and still standing. Let's be real - anxiety is a real piece of work!
