"Is it really worth it?" How many times have you asked yourself that question? That question usually comes up when it involves doing something for or to some capacity involves another person. It basically tries to foresee what may happen. Even though we cannot predict the future, at least we want to have an idea of the possible scenarios. It is similar to making an investment. You don't know for sure what the outcome will be, but you hope that it will be in your favor...
I recently read an article about the difference between a soulmate and a life partner.
The article was fascinating because most of us have been sold this over-romanticized idea of having to find a soulmate to be forever in love and happy with. But how many of us know the true definition of a soulmate?
Love is the most fundamental part of our existence. Love is complex and multifaceted, yet so simple and easy at the same time. It is the beginning, the end, and the center all at once. It is the reason why some have gone to war and the reason why others have ended them. It is the melody, the notes, and the words to a song. It is the silence and noise in a moment of bliss. The sunshine after the rain. The warm embrace on a cold winter morning.

A few days ago, my husband and I traveled to the "city of love", Paris. And I was super-excited not for the sake of the destination but because of the occasion. And the occasion was not an anniversary or birthday, the occasion was simply: Remembering us! Let me explain...
I recently read an interview with the music artist Kelis that was published on HuffPost Black Voices. In the interview, she talked about her previous relationship with the rapper Nas. Spoiler alert! This article might touch on some things that may be difficult to understand for people who don't listen to hip-hop music and are not familiar with the culture surrounding it, that is why I encourage you, even more, to continue reading.
This blog post is dedicated to the special love and bond between sisters: the sisterhood! In this case, I am not referring to the sisterhood that only applies to blood-related siblings, I mean the love and appreciation of women who have celebrated, laughed, grown and overcome together and have understood the importance of uplifting one another.
"Relationships are complicated!" that has been the common headline used to explain why we have become a society that encourages moving on, rather than staying to make things work. A tagline that is now the convenient excuse to explain why a relationship didn't work out. Especially in direct conflict with that significant other, we exhibit just how good we have become in using that excuse.
I consider Christmas the best time of the year. Apart from the beautiful Christmas decorations and the sudden peace and calmness that seems to fill the air, it is a reminder that the old is passing away and something new is ahead. Many people share my excitement, yet there are others that dread this time of the year. Many have developed the habit of saying "Oh dear, I can't wait for this year to be over. This year was one of the worst!"
