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. I'm here to tell you not to give up.

Sensual Saturday: Floetry and Say Yes...to Pleasure








For the entire month of November I'm bringing you my Black Women &  Sexual Empowerment series. Follow at #BlackWomenSexuality.

I think this idea of saying can be applied to sexuality as well. How many things have we wanted or wanted to do, but said no in fear of being judged? Say yes to that short skirt you've been wanting to wear. Say yes to that sexy, new hairstyle you wanted to try. Say yes to showing to cleavage if you're in the mood. Say yes to those fishnet stockings. Say yes to the idea of trying something different in bed with your partner. Say yes to yourself about suggesting a fantasy to your man or your lady. Say yes to what your is purring for. I think vaginas talk to us. And sometimes the kitty is purring for love, air, water, rough play or a gentle romp.

Life is too short. Say yes to your pleasure and desires.
