#WCW — One Can Chase a Thousand

#WCW — One Can Chase a Thousand

Note: I wrote this in 2015 and stored it in my drafts. However, it’s Wednesday, and maybe someone needs this. Anyone who knows me knows how much I care about my family. They come second only to God in my heart. I leave my comfort zone for them, push limits and break barriers to help … Continue reading

I Am LaMonique.

I Am LaMonique.

I did something today, and I couldn’t wait to tell you about it. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and for that I apologize. I’ve had a lot to say. I’ve actually been overflowing with words, thoughts and crazy feelings. There’s so much going on, Sweetie Pies. I honestly didn’t know … Continue reading

The Beyonce Blessing

The Beyonce Blessing

Disclaimer: I don’t claim to be Beyoncé, and my boyfriend is definitely not the guy in the picture. I wasn’t trying to send him a message. Please don’t inbox either of us. This is a closed relationship, and we like it that way. We’re good. I came across this meme last night, laughed and said, “Thank … Continue reading

You Gotta Be…

A few weeks ago, I got an urge to record a song that my friend suggested I cover on Facebook. My crew, ever eager to create a project, came over within two hours of sending out a text and got to work. We finished it that evening, and it’s been sitting on my desktop ever since. … Continue reading

The Battle for My Voice

The Battle for My Voice

Sweetie Pies, for the past year or so I have been engaged in a nasty spiritual battle. I have mentioned it to those closest to me in passing, but this is the first time I have thoroughly discussed it with anyone, although my pastor (who is truly connected to God) picked up on it several months … Continue reading
