Who Am I ?

DivaLationsFull2

Who am I?  I go by the name of Miss Lady.  I am a singer, lyricist, poet, spoken word artist, yet to be discovered author, college graduate, entrepreneur, and yes…Diva! Join me for self discoveries, earth shattering revelations (well, maybe not all of them) and just a general journey toward Piece of Mind Isle! 

I am many things but perfect is something I am not.
I struggle through the day to day routines
…and schedules
And I sometimes fumble the ball
When it’s passed to me.
I screw up from time to time
Frequently forfeit my ability to win.
But even the Good Book says
That what makes a man righteous
Is the fact
That even after he falls he knows enough to
Get
Back
Up
Again.  

I don’t claim to be righteous but I do my best to get back up again!

I Started My Blog Because…

Really, there are many reasons as to why I began my blog.  Several of my friends encouraged me to blog about my experiences, to which I responded with haughty disdain.  Blog?  Ha!  I am a private person.  Putting my thoughts and feelings out into the world is the polar OPPOSITE of my DNA.  But then I thought about it.  What is the difference between writing a book and writing a blog.  Obviously, there are some mechanical differences as well as the “immediacy” of publishing and making it available to the public.  However, the intent is the same:  to share experiences either real or fictional in nature with the masses.  As I have begun the wonderful journey of writing my upcoming book, blogging about these more immediate struggles began to seem natural.

I started my blog because I’m hoping that at least ONE person will read this and understand the following:

  • You can come back from bad relationships and survive
  • Being a Christian does not mean you do not struggle (oh and struggling does not mean that you are not a good Christian)
  • There is NO excuse for domestic abuse
  • Being the black sheep of your family does not spell doom for you in your own life
  • People WILL let you down, but you can have your OWN back
  • As a survivor of rape you do not only have two choices (either to be promiscuous or hate men altogether) you can choose to invent a middle ground
  • People do not dictate who you are — only YOU have the power to do that
  • Mortals fall.  It’s what we do.  But if you fall — get back up again! 

I write when motivated to do so and that means I will NOT be promising daily posts — but what I will strive to do is post relevant and meaningful material that acknowledges some important points as well as identification with my past and present struggle!
