Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young. But some younger people reading may think 40 is nearly ancient. But I'm writing this post for those who like me, thought their career and personal dreams would come true much early in life.

Either you swirl (which means date interracially) or you don’t. But Christelyn  and her "Swirling" co-author Janice Littlejohn aren't trying to sway readers to try "something new". This book is a guide for those black women who are ready to jump into the interracial dating pool or have already found their Marco Polo-Chung-Pakowski. 

 Listen here or below to my interview/girly-girl chat with Christelyn about her book, how she met her husband (who is white) and dating. I really hope you listen since I sacrificed watching one of my favorite TV shows to do this interview.
