This weekend was an eye opener for me on so many levels. I feel as if I’m at a fork in the road and there is a brick wall on each path. Whichever path I choose I have a wall to break through.


I was blessed to be part of an event this past weekend, where my daddy’s legacy was remembered. James E. Potts was a pioneer in the 60’s, he was the first African American male student to attend Louisiana Tech University. He paved the way for other black students to have a quality education. He took a stand for racial equality. He overcame racism. He overcame fear. He kept moving forward. He made his dent in history.


I cried this weekend because I missed my daddy. I cried this weekend because I saw myself not living up to my full potential. I cried because I was given and opportunity to step back, assess where I am and make some adjustments.

Its time to stop playing.

Its time to put up or shut up.

Its my time, its your time, its time.


Its way overdue and I have nothing to prove to anyone but myself. When you get to a point where change must come……CHANGE!!!

Do what you must and live.

Much love,

Beautiful Black Cat

I absolutely love putting it in writing! When I write I release a part of me that was hidden from the world. For years I would only write to help me navigate through this thing called life, however, writing has become my closest friend. I am a self-published author with a desire to help people know there is always HOPE. Hope for a better tomorrow, hope to live another day, and HOPE TO KNOW LIFE DOES GET BETTER. To my readers, I say "Live FREE and Die WELL" (Quote from the Rock in the movie Scorpion King~lol). Hope is always found in letting go.
