My Story

Like many of women in my late 20's I found myself telling others that I preferred to be friends with men rather than women.  Unfortunately, I had already experienced a lot of disappointment at the hands of women (sisters).  From high school disagreements and disappoints, I had the stories.  Now, I am not wiggling out of taking some responsibility, but I am convinced that I would have prefered to come to an agreeable solution rather than feel the pain that was I left to deal with.  Some of the situations involved girlfriends cheating with my boyfriend, being told I was to fat to be in a close friend's wedding to just being disliked for being honest with a friend.  Adulthood was no different, I had girlfriends that always wanted to compete in fashion and in various arenas, but I never saw the need.  Eventually, this wore me down and I found myself being used more than anything!

As a result, for many years I only had males friends because it was easier.  Males friends didn't care about what I wore or who I was dating.  It was not until 2006, I met a female that I have been able to maintain a close bound and friendship with, but it has not been without episodes of misinterpretations or differences of opinions.  But, with determination and commitment we have allowed each other to be used to bring healing and restoration.  As a result, I created this blog in hopes of keeping SISTERS positive and uplifted regarding each other.  I felt a need to provide a place where we can share our feelings and look for advice without the outcome of reality TV woman.

Real Friendships are Balancing and Relaxing

Given the fact that birthdays are very special to me, this past weekend was very exciting! It was time to celebrate one of my dear friends (Patrice Harrell) birthday.  During this time of her life's celebration, I witnessed friendships that are balancing and relaxing to say the least. I know you are wondering what I mean about balancing and relaxing.  Let me elaborate if you will. Experiencing balance within friendships consist of opportunities of being transparent,  unmasking, competition free, and growth developing moments.  As it relates to the term relaxing, simply put, opportunities to be less tense or anxious.

Therefore, as expected her birthday began with an evening of family, friends, food and music at her newly purchased home. Toasting, cheers, and bliss filled the atmosphere. The ambience was full of unconditional love and a strong presence of God's un-measuring favor in several areas including marriage and friendship.  As a result, the festivities called for a seco…

I Think I Have A Good One

It's been quite a while since my last post; needless to say I have missed you all.  However, there have been various things that have changed in my life's arena some great and some have been challenging.  Nevertheless, I hope and pray that all is well in your life and here's to the start of a series of many great posts from Sister's Expressions.

As you may or may not remember my last post was about "How to Meet the Man of Dreams", in which I discussed a conversation with two ladies who both met their dream guys by way of personal friends.  This method of meeting a great guy intrigued me to the point I was willing to give it a try once my previous relationship became bleak and sizzled out.  I began by sharing with those I most trusted that I was once again single and was simply looking for someone to go out to dinner with on occasion without any commitments.  An old friend once advised me that it's best to spend time with one's self right after a brea…

How to Find You

Okay let’s be honest….no one will ever know, have you ever wished you had features and/or qualities like someone else.I have, several times.My first experience with this desire was around six or seven years old.At such an early age, I found myself wanting to be more like my mother.I am from a single family home in which my mother was the sole bread winner and I knew early on that my quality of life depended on her.As a result, I always paid close attention to my mother’s work ethics, personal drives and ambitions.Witnessing my mother handle her responsibilities so well in the 70’s made her my hero; therefore I wanted so much to echo her in various areas.I wanted to look like her; she is what we define as light-skinned, and physically framed very well.She was able to speak her mind freely with eloquence and never allowed people to run over her.She was awesome in my opinion.But I soon realized that I didn’t look like her.I am dark-skinned, full-figured, and beautiful I might add.Therefo…
