Permission To Fly

I was born to a pastor and a warden. Fine, I’m kidding about the warden part, but best believe my mom would crush that job.

So yh, that’s why no one takes you seriously…

If you just have a bunch of big talk and can’t ever back it up then all you are is a waste of time gum bumper.

“They Need Help. FaReal!”

Many times in life people will do underhanded, devious and just straight up malicious things to you, and you know what? We should feel sorry for them.

THE FATAL DISCONNECT

By Jonathan ‘Semaj’ James The true task of a Christian Is to take what is gained from worship and apply it to everyday life. Christians speak their own vernacular, their own language – so is it any wonder we’re misunderstood by the world? The sad thing is, we ourselves have fallen prey to this disconnect…

Life in HD

So, for anyone who has been reading my blogs or following me for some time, I’m pretty sure there’s one word that definitely comes to mind when you think of me – inconsistent. No, I’m not being too hard on myself. I can trace my life and highlight the moments when I got inspired and…

Learning to live with BM Syndrome

For years I have struggled, questioned and just plain out resented what I thought was an abnormality. Why couldn’t I be like everyone else? Why was I being picked on and treated differently. Sure, I have my good days when everything feels great and I feel loved and accepted but then I have another flare…

Why So Edgy?

My friend and I usually have a good laugh when we see people being unnecessarily “edgy”. In fact, I can practically hear him saying, “That’s  pretty edgy, man” and I already wanna crack up. Now don’t get me wrong. We aren’t the kinds of people who shy away from heavy topics or themes that make…

When The Lie is Rewarded 

I recently alluded to some changes in my life, one of which involved my teaching career and for the most part, I have been very diplomatic about it, but now I have decided to fight. Corruption is an issue that I have extreme intolerance for because of how I was raised. Sure, it may be…

The Willingness to Change (The Transition Series Pt. 1)

Never before has one word made such frequent occurrences in my life the way the word ‘Transition’ has recently. It’s a bit worrisome actually, like it’s captioning the stage I’m at. I know I had promised to update more regularly but there has been so, so much going on. Currently, I feel like I am…

Flip The Script

For the past few weeks I have been struggling with a number of conflicting thoughts and as such I  have felt quite stuck. Now, without going into too many details, I have been meeting more and more opposition. On one hand, this opposition seems to be speaking with a voice that I have listened to…

THE MOMENT

So, yeah. 2016 was supposed to be a more disciplined, determined, get-things-done sorta year but… I know. I’m disgusted by myself too but, you see for a while I was missing something – a spark, if you will. Finally, last night after days of feeling it smoldering, it came back to life. The last few…

Chasing the Sun – Hello 2016

Now I know that almost everyone has an Old Years’/ New Years’ Eve tradition. For me it’s usually church followed by food (Hey I’m a foodie, what can  say?). This year turned out to be very different. How? Well, my crazy group of friends decided that we would get some food and then head to a…
