Getting Out Of Your Own Way and Embracing Success

Author – Sekinah Brodie Success is a subjective multi-layered concept which, to the average person holds an unattainable standard.

With this in mind, here’s some ways to get out of your own way and embrace your success. Removing toxic people One of the hardest things…

New Music Alert: Toni Braxton has released the stunning visuals for her new single “Long As I Live”.  She is giving so much life, yes ma’am.

Love looks real good on her. Since taking…

Beyonce` and Jay-Z love to play with our emotions. First, we have not seen the twins in ages and paparazzi pictures don’t count!

Now we are getting blessed with an On The Run Tour II. I can’t with them darn Carter’s.  My mind can’t…

Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time : A Movie That’s Right On Time

<<NO SPOILERS>> This was the first movie that I  have ever jotted down notes while watching – seriously. Well, they were more like nuggets. My granddaughter and I watched “A Wrinkle in Time” over weekend and despite the reviews coming in, I actually enjoyed it.  Was it perfect, no; but what movie is?    A Wrinkle in Time, is right on time. Especially as it relates to how young black girls and women view themselves in  society. I asked my granddaughter which character did she like the best and she…

Empowerment: A Word That Will Never Be Cliche For Me

The word empowerment will never be cliche for me because it embodies sooo much.   My week ended so beautifully. I must work on my timing though. I started a 7 seven day cleanse and two of those seven days I had speaking engagements. Note to self, don’t do that ish again! Trying to speak through the bubble guts ain’t the business. Any who, I had a very busy, but productive week. My highlights include the I Am Royalty Teen Summit, Women’s Empowerment Brunch, and a nice family get together…

Eric Benet and Faith Evans Announce Duets Tour, plus Musiq Soulchild and Marsha Ambrosius release duet “For Better For Worse”

The ever busy Faith Evans, and never aging Eric Benet, are set to go on tour beginning June 2018. The pair will embark on their “Duets Tour:  “A Lifetime of Music in One Night.”  I remember seeing Faith on the “Puff Daddy and the Family Bad Boys Reunion Tour”, and her voice was flawless as ever.  Her “King and I” album was actually pretty dope! I believe both will put on  a solid performance and produce a show watching. R&B could definitely use this at the moment. Okay so the song…

Will You Watch? Furlough: Starring Tessa Thompson, Whoopi Goldberg and La La Anthony

Movies that explore mother daughter relationships always get me.  “Furlough”, starring Tessa Thompson as a  guard charged with transporting a prisoner on a “deathbed visit” .  The format seems to flow a little like a Tyler film, funny, but with good lessons woven into the story. Whoopi Goldberg (Tessa’s mom)  I’m sure will give us much  to laugh about. I miss seeing Whoopi on the big screen.   LaLa Anthony also stars in the film as well.  She can’t be doing to much though, because I need her in tip top…
