Finding God Within Me

This isn’t the life I envisioned for myself. 34, still not married, with a relationship that is, at best, in limbo. Renting an apartment. No kids of my own.  Unemployed, and not sure where to turn next. Really questioning what I’m actually supposed...

16 years ago I got on stage for Star Search at my high school and sang Part of Your World -- you know, that famous song that Ariel sings in The Little Mermaid.

I slapped together a mermaid costume, and sang my little heart out.

I went to an almost 100% white high school...

Day 1: 2019 Financial Goals

This is the 3rd edition of my favorite series -- and it's not just my favorite because I write it. (Let's be real. Politics is my favorite thing to write about 😜).

It's my favorite because I'm passionate about financial freedom. Why? Because...

In less than 2 weeks, your taxes are due to the Internal Revenue Service.

As of February 3rd, 2018, my taxes were filed. I got a nice big refund from Uncle Sam, because for whatever reason, I still let the government borrow my money from me interest free. But, I did use...

I'm naturally a people-pleaser.

I've got a big heart, and I love people, even to the point where it's hurt me. It's taken me a long time to set healthy boundaries in my life so that I don't feel taken advantage of by others. But it's made me become a pretty good advocat...

These scars are very real to me. They are one of the few physical reminders that I have been living with an “invisible disease." It’s a task I wouldn’t assign to anyone. It’s frustrating as it is painful – but it sure does build character.🙃 💪

As endometriosis is fi...

Third time's a charm. Or so they say. And as I sit here at 6:30 a.m. in the waiting room, I can't help but think of what a whirlwind my life has been in the past 3.5 years - the last time I had surgery.

Why are you having surgery, MJ? Well, because I have a awful, albei...

I’ve done a lot of writing this past year. Most of it, I’ll probably never share with anyone, because it would probably implicate any chance of me running for office in the future. 😂 

But this was one piece that’s raw, real, and relatable to anyone who has been throug...
