Hey loves! Welcome back. Thank you for showing love on my last article.
I will be here every other Wednesday to give you some awesome reads
(figuratively and literally 😀) about whatever pops into my mind and affects my feelings. Ooh Lord, all the feels. 🤣 But, on a serious note, I think it’s dope that we can share a platform such as this to express ourselves and converse about life, the beauty and intricacy of it all. So, let’s get into it
Say, once upon a time. There was a beautiful twenty-something melanin

I like to tell a little story for the visual. Stay with me. Now, as I was saying. Bam! 🎆 Her vision could no longer be contained. The passion was activated, blood now pulsating through her veins. Exhilarating her eagerness for life, creating an aura around her that she hadn’t recognized herself, yet. It contained a translucent hue of purple, orange, blue, yellow and red. Appeared like spirits dancing around her. Nobody in the flesh knew what to call it. Although, the spirit called it passion. So, her assignment began.

Life isn’t a Disney fairytale. Or even the one I wrote. It sounds cute for the movies and on your IG memes. However, the reality is your fairytale is your OWN fairytale. It will never be perfect and yet that’s what makes it so perfect. See, it’s truly about continuing to walk and trust God throughout your life. It’s accepting the good and the bad of your story.

so, yes sista’s… you CAN have it all.
The unexpected package and acceptance of change doesn’t mean you’re settling. It just means you’re one bad ass woman who is confident enough to know she deserves it ALL yet understands the ALL isn’t just her own to decide. A lesson I’ve been learning in my twenties.

So happy to have Morgan back with us twice a month on #WCW. She here on a Thursday this time but we are still working our flow out here on Herstun FM Readio. Regardless, so excited to have her back and continuing to grace us with the Poetic Saga of a Southern Girl in LA. This time tackling another issue we have had on the site before, can we have it all? These are things that plague minds around the world apparently. Can the modern woman balance it all? What is the fairy tale? What are your fairy tales? Do men ask themselves the same question? I’ll share my fairytale in the comments. Join me there.
