8:48 a.m.

I woke up to another peaceful morning of stillness. It is amazing to me that despite the Covid-19 statistics and the constant 24 hours updates on the dead tolls from this deadly virus, peace still has a way of showing up every day for me.

I don’t know what it is but it is good to see the world slowing down even if it is by force. I’m one of the many people who still go out to the grocery store and to workout like nothing is going on. I know, I know…. I need to keep my butt in the house especially when I’m not at work. I could feel your energy as I wrote that admission of slight disobedience to the instructions given only by the CDC, WHO and your president. I promise I will do better starting today.

So back to my original thought for writing this blog post. While you are out and about buying the essential items needed for your household like food, paper towels and toilet tissue please remember to be generous. Please leave something on the shelf for your neighbor. It makes no sense to have a whole room full of toilet tissue if you don’t need it all right now. If you’re going buy it all at least drop off some to a senior citizen that can’t get out the house, or a single father or mother who may not have the time to stop by a grocery store after work. We can’t forget to be a blessing to others despite our fears.

If you can’t find any toilet tissue right now make sure to check with your local Family Dollar and Dollar General. These stores will have plenty in stock due to there limit restriction per household. I was able to pick up a few first thing this morning not only for me but also for my co worker’s family.

If you are blessed to still have a job, a roof over your head and food in the fridge be thankful but don’t be greedy.

Stay safe, wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and don’t touch your face.

With lots of love and a big hug,

{Living Truthfully} Fear..Thanks for keeping me safe

Journey Day 4: Being molested not only changed my life but the way I would think from that day forward.

Which explains why I think so much. ALL THE TIMES!! It’s a blessing when it’s ideas but a curse followed by assumptions.

One of my most consistent conversing sessions during that time with myself sounded a lot like this:

“Kell, you gave him PERMISSION to hurt you by letting him into the core of you. From this day forward, you keep your dreams, desires and happiness to yourself.”  Signed….FEAR

Fast forward 2o something years….

This is why I have become so comfortable not living up to my potential.

This is why I am so comfortable with living in my ideas and scared to implement.


From the moment I learned to read, I always loved learning.  I loved to read self-help and business books.  I developed wisdom very early in my life but I was still afraid.

As a teenager, the Small Business Magazine is where I dreamed the most.img_20170126_104338

I struggle everyday with telling fear I am ready to be a little uncomfortable to find out what fulfillment looks like for me in the business arena.

Which has been and still is ….One of my BIGGEST DESIRES!!

“So while I appreciate you protecting me as a child from never being molestated again. I think it’s time for us to part for a minute.

I think it’s time for me to grow.”
