Carpe Diem: How To Use All 24 Hours In Your Day

There just aren’t enough hours in a day. How many times have you had this thought? If you’re anything like me, you’ve had it several hundred times in the past week! Okay, maybe not that much, but you’ve certainly thought of it. I bet you never considered seizing every single minute of your 24-day, have you? Honestly, until just recently, neither had I. Working from home and being a single mom can be challenging without proper self-management, staying organized, and excellent time management. The reason I often feel like there aren’t enough hours in a day is because I’m usually only focused […]

Time Is Money: Investing Your Time Wisely

Time is money. That’s the word. I was watching T.D. Jakes and he said something that made me think a great deal. “How you handle your money and how you spend you time tells someone a lot about you. Be careful where you spend your time and money.” Where do you spend the majority of your time and money? Really think about that. I don’t think we normally think about what we’re saying with the things we find most valuable, which is what I’d consider something your investing the majority of your time and money into. I advise everyone to […]

PODCAST: The Best Life Advice I’ve Ever Received

What was the best life advice you’ve ever received?  Seriously, take a minute to ponder that question for me. As I prepared to bring in a new year that would change my life in ways I couldn’t yet imagine, I asked myself this exact question. I was thinking about my baby girl who would soon be entering the world and I wondered what might be the best life advice I could ever give her. First, I had to really dig deep inside to answer this question for myself. With me being a person who loves seeking life advice (especially from people who […]

5 Signs That Prove You’re A Grown Woman 2

Yes, ladies. On Monday’s I write for the men and on Thursday’s I’ll be writing for us. I didn’t want to spearhead setting goals in the New Year or talk about New Years’ Resolutions for our first article of 2016. Instead, I want to embrace the growth that we’ve overcome since being together over the past two years. I am sure that you have grown a lot since finding The Goddess Column (or since 2013, if you’re new) and I’d like to talk about a few things we, grown women, should absolutely know how to do by now. You do realize […]

GoddessColumnTV: A Lesson In Self-Worth

This GoddessColumnTV entry was inspired by a question someone asked me that made me think a lot about my answer. Recently I was asked, “If you could bottle up one thing about you and sell it in stores, what would it be?” Here is my answer… Continue reading

Peace with the Past: How Accepting Your Past Helps You to Embrace Your Future

What I hope you know for certain since reading with me, is that I have a very colorful past. This is why I do my best to create such a judgment-free safe zone for anything anyone might be going through out there. I offer my advice and a listening ear to everyone who asks for one, but I never want anyone to feel like I think I know everything or that my opinion is really anything more than just that–an opinion. We all come from different walks of life and we’ve all made mistakes. To me, there is no one […]

How to Avoid Having A Bad First Date

Have you ever felt like Mindy? I’m sure we all have. The truth is, what gets me the most about being single is that I love going on dates! Don’t you? I do all that I can to make sure my date has a great time, yes, even if that means paying. I think the only bad thing about going on dates is that just because you enjoyed it doesn’t mean that your date did. Over the weekend, I ate out a couple times and observed some really, really bad dates happening which led me to write about how to avoid […]
