The Success of Others

While most of us would love to say that we are generous, loving and selfless enough to celebrate the success of those around us, this is not always the case. To be able to truthfully say that you are happy at EVERY great thing that happen to others while you are stuck in the same [...]

Flawed & (Still) Worthy.

Dear Brown Girl, It's been a struggle lately to even get up in the morning. Doubts have been clouding my mind and I know that no one has been more doubtful of me than well... me. You see, it's been a while since I came to this place of darkness and because it was unexpected, [...]
