Self Care, Obedience, and KP

Moment of Transparency: I love Jesus, I really do. But I’m a type A personality, so I’m not always obedient. I thrive off of lists, sticky notes, goals and “push through.” For the past few months, I have slowed down considerably. My slow down though, has been because of decreased desire. I THINK about doing…

KPs Wellness Journey, Pre Summer Update

So….. I had a doc appointment today. I haven’t been doing the best as far as my meds and water, so I knew my numbers would be WAY out of wack. I made up in my mind even before my appointment that I would give myself 90 days to get myself together. My PA Nat…

It’s OK Not To Be OK

Hey friends, colleagues, teachers, mamas, executives, sisters, aunties, and the list goes on….. It’s ok not to be ok….. At this point in my life, I am not ok…. When did I realize something was amiss? To be totally honest, I cannot put my finger on an exact time. I can only tell you that…

Letting Go and Letting Be….

I’m practicing “letting go” and “letting be”…Let me explain….. Aaron started walking with me a few weeks ago. Then the weather got colder, I took some time off from walking, and I didn’t ask Aaron to continue. Yes, he’s autistic, but he’s also 26 years old. I decided I wouldn’t pressure him about walking and…

Hello. My Name is Keischa. I Am A Therapist. I Have COVID Brain.

Late last summer, my husband, Paul, and I contracted COVID-19. Those days were quite the experience, to say the least. There were periods of time where we felt so bad, we knew would surely die. Thankfully, we recovered and went about our lives as normally as we could, with limitations. Before COVID, I had developed…

Mindfulness is The Beginning of Change

After my “blah and tired” feelings the other day, y’all KNOW I started reflecting. First, though, I prayed to my Creator. I talked to Him about my feelings and asked for help, for insight and guidance. Last, I asked for an obedient spirit to do His will. These pics represent why I feel tired. I…

Tuesday Convo With My Creator

Oftentimes, when we think of success or promotion, we think of the positive aspects of our lives that contributed to our elevation. The truth (at least in my case) was made clear as I was praying the other morning. My Creator reminded me that trials, obstacles, and not so pleasant times can often be the…

Winter Season and Marigolds

So I wanted to offer some encouragement to those of us in a “winter” period of our lives: plans, hopes, dreams, health - nothing seems to be going as planned. We may be feeling tired, hopeless, and unsure what to do next. But you know what? We’ve been here before, just like these marigold seeds.…
