That’s the only word that really fits my state of mind and body lately. For the last few weeks I’ve had bronchitis and reoccurring headaches. No worries, I’m still lippy and intense at times but for the most part I’m getting by. It could be so much worse.
On a positive note I managed to get through the book signing/reading in Atlanta for Daddy Believe it or not I didn’t vomit or pass out. Sometimes we have to face our fears head on and I’m so happy that I did face this fear. When I wrote my personal story about my relationship with my Dad I never imagined I would be reading a piece of it in front of people in a book store nor signing my name in a book for someone. I met so many incredible souls at the event as well. To think that people took time out of their day to listen to us read an excerpt from our chapters was so special to us. The surprise of that evening was the questions and comments after the reading from the audience. Most of the comments were people stating they couldn’t wait to call their father’s and thank them for their love and support. This entire experience for me was healing and enduring. To mention that I am thankful to K E Garland is an absolute understatement. I will be forever grateful for her including me.
I have been working on the beginnings of a biography. The biography is about someone that I believe could help others by sharing their story. This could take years or decades for me to complete. For now, I’ll keep working at it.
Hoping that all of you are doing well this Sunday morning.
Often we wonder how people see us.
A few words people have used in describing me…Intense, Strong, Outgoing, Passionate, Defiant, Amusing, Bitchy and Hostile.
The above words are describing my work personality I believe. I tend to think I’m a completely different person at work. At home I’m somewhat a recluse. I like the solitaire. When we’re in a social setting I feel anxious an overwhelmed worrying about what to talk about and how to answer questions that might come up.
Unusual right? I wonder if getting paid to be something or to do something is the reason why I’m a completely different person at work with all of those overwhelming descriptions people have used to describe me?
So, do you ever wonder how people see you? Do you agree with what they think or say about you?
Happy Sunday Loves!
Yes, this phrase has been used for quite some time. I’m not the first female to wish she had a penis. I don’t wish for one because I’m a lesbian. Nope. I wish I had one for other reasons.
1.) At work it seems like when I speak, the men never listen. They DO listen to each other. They are coming up with ideas on how to solve a problem when meanwhile I’ve already solved it and taken care of it. I’m speaking and explaining it but the deep voices are still loud AF and booming while ignoring me. If I had a penis, it would be 15″ long and I would just pull it out and lay it on the conference table and demand their attention. Bet they would listen to me then.
2.) I would use it to knock things over. I think instead of being angry and using my words, I would just whip it out and just knock things off of the desk on purpose to put a dramatic effect on a situation.
3.) If someone pissed me off, I would hit them in the forehead with it.
4.) I would wear a cup outside of my leggings/pants, etc. to accentuate the bulge so that everyone would know who they’re dealing with. I would be the “Big Dick” for a change.
5.) I could tell people to suck my cock and be legit. Of course, I’ve been known to say that before a few times but didn’t have the cock to back up that statement.
Well, that’s all the reasons I can think of for now on why I would like to have one. I would just need a detachable one since I am quite fond of my lady parts. A girl can dream right?
Good Morning Loves,
Been a while hasn’t it? Just thought I would drop by on this rainy Sunday morning with some amazing covers…. I’m in a mood to hear some relaxing stuff compared to my usual rap music 🙂 So, here’s some cover songs that I love!
I can’t tell you how happy I was to see 2019 arrive. 2018 was basically a personal shit show for me. But, looking forward to new and exciting changes in my life. Not sure what those will be but I welcome anything positive. I’m allowing the light in. No more clouds, darkness or negative feelings.
This leads me to the book “Daddy” that I contributed to by the request of Dr. K E Garland in 2018. This is an anthology chronicling the impact of dysfunctional father-daughter relationships. After reading each memoir I couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride for all fourteen of us. I can only speak for myself but writing personal despairing moments about my father were quite overwhelmingly exhausting. I’ve always felt it’s brave for anyone to write about something that has caused emotional pain.
My coping routine is to bury my emotions deep inside and not to speak of it. I like to rise above my problems and pretend they never happened. I’ve always felt that if I spoke of the deep hurt that it would show weakness. But, now after writing my chapter “The Uprising” I realize it was therapeutic to release all of the emotions and wounds into something other than the burial ground in my mind. Writing this was invigorating and beneficial to me in so many positive ways.
This leads me to encourage you to order the “Daddy” Anthology on line to follow the stories of how a father’s deficiencies can cause destruction internally for their daughter’s. If you’re wondering if this is a depressing book? I don’t think it is at all. I believe that K E Garland says it best “Don’t worry. The person next to you is flawed too.” Because of K E Garland I rose above my flaws and am a “healing in process”.
If you would like to order the book it’s available on Amazon. Click the link below. Thank you for reading XO
In the last few months you’ve probably seen my posts on the interviews with K E Garland AKA Kathy for her book “Daddy”. Since it is Father’s Day I thought I would share this with all of you.
This book is memoirs of several women (including myself) of failed relationships between daughter’s and father’s. Before you assume it’s a depressing read, it’s really not. In these stories you’ll see that most of us all have some positive learning experiences going through these series of events.
I would love for you to purchase this book and read it. No matter who you are, I believe everyone could learn something from the experiences we share in this book. Also, a portion of the proceeds will be contributed to each of our favorite charities. Mine being The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
Below is my interview with Dr. K E Garland. Thank you for stopping by and reading a piece of my life as always.
One more thing, I’m happy to say I will be spending some time with my Daddy today.
Daddy Contributor Lennon Carlyle
I call Sandra my Bestie here on WP. Granted I’ve not been around much lately but she is my ride or die girl. She’s a bitchnificent kind of chic, she’s my people. I absolutely adore her. I say it all of the time and I know she thinks I’m crazy because we’ve never actually met in person but I swear we’re going to one of these days. Know what I love so much about her? She’s real. She doesn’t sugar coat jack shit. When she’s down, she’s really down and she shares her low moments on her blog. When she writes…..Fuck. She writes. Her fiction is incredible. She doesn’t think so but I do and it that says a lot because I’m actually not a big fan of fiction. But, she lures me in every single time. I read one and then I can’t stop, it’s comparable to me eating chips I suppose. I can’t eat just one, I mean who can really?
Today I want to celebrate her because she’s such an amazing friend to me. She gets me and whether she wants to believe it or not, she inspires me, makes me laugh, understands when I’m down and what I need. She’s truly an exceptional friend to me. If you have time, please pay her a visit and wish her a Happy Birthday. If you’ve got five bucks or you’re possibly filthy rich, buy her a cup of coffee? You can do this on her blog where you see the little coffee mug with the heart on it. I’m planning on buying her a few myself. What Sandra Thinks
This song makes me think of our friendship….I have my heart set that you feel the love today……..

Good Sunday Morning Loves,
Lately I’ve been sharing with you the interviews with Dr. K E Garland and the women that contributed to her anthology. This book has eye opening cases of how significant a father and daughter relationship impacts our lives.
I was elated when my entry to this book was chosen to be among so many amazing contributors. Yes, it’s immensely personal but was very healing for me. Soon I’ll be interviewed and will share it here on my blog as well.
This book is to give father’s an awareness of how their love, time, and life examples effect their daughter’s lives for their futures. It’s also a book to liberate any daughter’s that do have Daddy Issues.
I highly recommend this read for anyone. It’s profound, moving, genuine and restorative. Also, a portion of the book’s proceeds will be contributed to an organization important to each participant.
The eBook version of Daddy is available now for pre-order!
The paperback version of Daddy is forthcoming, June 2, 2018.
