What a time to be Haitian!
In this episode, I talk about how what time it is to be a Haitian. If yall ain't know, there was a viral mess between #JessieWoo and #KarenCivil. When I say it was a mess, chilllleeee! It was disappointing to see it unfold but there were one too many people who were coming out left & right saying they were bamboozled by Karen. At one point, I felt bad for her, frfr. Just a little bit. It wasn't Stockholm Syndrome, it was more like she could redeem herself, however, she's being defensive. A simple 'I'm sorry' would have done it. Then the beginning of the week, there were tons of Haitians at the border of #Texas, who were seeking refuge and the Texan patrols were whipping Haitian people and telling them to go back to where they came from. History repeating itself. What a time to be Haitian.

Family & Friends Won't Always Support You.
Hey everyone! It's Thursday... which means it's a brand new episode! In this episode, I talk about how we all shouldn't expect our family & friends to support us the way we want them to. They will only support us in a way that they want to support us. Makes sense? I've noticed that a lot of people on social talk about this A LOT! Every motivational speaker, every entrepreneur, etc. And it's true. If you have a dream or goal you want to accomplish and you're looking for support, it's best to keep it to yourself and move forward and complete. THEN talk about it after it's done! I appreciate y'all listening! Share this episode if it resonated with you. See you next episode!

How social media made common sense not so common...
I don't know if y'all haven't noticed but where did the common sense go!? I already know social media isn't the place for it most days, however, it needs a comeback! I dive into how I get trapped in a rabbit hole on YouTube to people telling people that they will die if they do not take the vaccine to social media lacking common sense to letting know where you can donate to the people of Haiti on social. If you want to help those in Haiti, here are some profiles on Instagram that you can look for places to donate or send resources to: @haitianswhoblog @ch_hlu @atl4haiti @lunionsuite Thank y'all for listening and helping those in Haiti as well!

How I manifest the things that I want!
As you all know, I created this podcast for y'all because I believe it can help someone out there. This podcast showcases my personal journey into who I am becoming and the things I have experienced. Lately, I've been noticing myself manifesting the things that I want in my life at a very rapid rate. I mean it has been RAPID! Once I say it, it comes to fruition. I mentioned in this episode I'm not an expert or a guru. I never want to be nor be labeled as one. How did I do it? I poured into me what I wanted out of life. I'm sure most of you know this. I'm sure your favorite motivational speaker or influencer tells you this all the time. I'm wondering if they talked about the feeling you experience when you know you're about to reach what you manifested. I did. I talked about the feeling you will experience when you are about to reach what you manifest! Take a listen. Again, I'm not a manifesting guru or expert. I'm me - a regular woman from Chicago who is unapologetically her. I am the unapologetic nonconformist.

Love Jones: Say what you want & mean what you say.
I watched Love Jones this past weekend. The entire time, I was SMH. I was over the movie because I didn’t understand why Nia & Larenz couldn’t just say they were interested in each other from jump ‼️ maybe it’s me 🤷🏾♀️ however, I talked about what I thought about it and how people should say what they want & mean what they say when it comes to relationships these days. Let me know what you think - whether you agree or disagree. Always opened to feedback!

Haitian v. African American Culture: Is there a difference?
Growing up Haitian - let me tell you - it wasn’t easy. There are beautiful parts to my culture and then there are the not so beautiful parts to it. Dealing with the duality of being Haitian American - I learned a lot, discovered a lot and still understanding where it is I stand in both. How about you listen and see for yourself man

Sunday was 6 years since I’ve been single. I’ve learned A LOT in those six years about myself & what it is I want. Most people don’t spend that time alone before starting something new. However, I needed to. I had to. This new me expected it and definitely needed it. Just press play!

Think for yourself & Question Everything!
I didn’t add music to this because I wanted you to hear me & feel what I am saying. Growing up, I always questioned why I had to do things. Adults would respond, "Because I said so", with no explanation. In this episode, I want talk about questioning your superiors respectfully and know that it is ok to think outside of the box and not do what society deems as "normal". Believe me - I'm ready for the pushback that may come with this episode but I truly believe that we should never take what is told or taught to us for face value. Always question everything you hear and what people say. Most times, they don't even know what they are talking about!
