Are You Truly Living?

I awoke one morning around 4 am as I often do. My body has somehow programmed itself to hate me thus making me open my eyes way before sunlight hits my window. But whatever. As I was awake at the middle of the night, I decided to begin scrolling through social media in search of […]

Him.

You were the first man I ever called beautiful. Years later, I still see you as such but my perspective has changed. I see you as so much more. A fighter, a warrior with so much strength yet the sensitivity and humility to love me beyond what most would say I deserve. You have never stopped […]

You were never a thought. Well, maybe a distant one. One I figured would surface when I was ready. When I was finished establishing my career and having fun with my husband. and then you came. out of nowhere. unexpected but not prevented so I get it. I wasn’t happy. I was disappointed and afraid […]

Love: Choosing To Embrace

Ifie Natasha June 13, 2016 No Comments

Love. The more I learn about it, the more often I question whether we truly love each other. Whether we love ourselves. I realize I’ve been truly ignorant to what it truly means to love someone. Acknowledging someone’s differences and loving them for those differences, are two different things. We often say we love each […]

Watching Life Die…

Ifie Natasha June 9, 2016 7 Comments

Living. The pursuit of life. We’ve become too obsessed with the concept that we’ve failed to actually live. We’ve stood by admiring others putting envy to their freedom. Putting curiosity to their methods. We’ve wandered so deep in thought; farther than we’ve ever let our thoughts go before yet our body stayed stagnant. Laid dormant […]

The Mountain Is Not Your Enemy.

We often hear from inspirational speakers that your challenges and obstacles are not your competition; you are. When going up against something scary or challenging we often consider this thing as our opponent that needs to be beaten and conquered. I’d dare to argue that those obstacles are not our competition, what if we are our […]

Perfection is a Myth My Dear.

This blog was birthed from a very real place. A place of hurt, disappointment, feelings of inadequacy and eventually a place of anger. For the past 9 months, my marriage has been on one of the worst roller coasters ever. A roller coaster similar to the Goliath at Six Flags Over Georgia. As soon as […]

For the past few years, my birthday has been a dreaded and miserable day for me. Disappointment in my life often led me down a road of resentment and feelings of failure. My career  hasn’t taken off the way I’d hoped. My thoughts and desires concerning life sequence and money have not been fulfilled ;and […]

Power of Perfect Timing

ifienatasha May 16, 2016 4 Comments

Maturity is a strange thing. Defined as “perfect condition” or “full development”, we rarely consider maturation (or the lack thereof) as a reason for why we don’t have what we desire, when we desire it. I believe maturity is something we continue to strive towards. It’s fulfillment changes just as we change. For example, I […]

Then There Were Four.

  Let me just be honest with you for a moment. I never imagined that I would be a wife and mother. I wasn’t one of those girls who dreamt of white weddings and long evenings in the kitchen. I never planned family vacations in my head or thought of baby names while still learning […]
