No Blogtober this month; the days got away from me. Nevertheless, you will find a revolving autumnal theme with my forthcoming posts. Many of them will be reflective quotes and a bit of commentary. Happy Fall, y'all.
This post is inspired by a very moving and honest post on In My Sunday Best, where blogger Sade openly discusses her experience with relationship rejection. Read it and reflect; I appreciated her candor and discussing the inspiring lessons she learned about herself. As I read it, it reminded me so much of my own …
“when you gonna make up your mind?”
Confession: I lost a bit of myself in 2017. I think it happens to every woman. Here and there, pieces of who we are, good pieces, at that, begin to crumble at our feet.
