I met Stephanie (Melanie Crane) in a hotel lobby in Ghana. I was about to get into the elevator when she walked up to me, said she recognized me and loved my work. I was very humbled not only because it’s always amazing to know that what I do inspires others but also because I was a bit shocked that a beautiful young lady would bother herself to walk up to me to and tell me how much she admires my work.

We can all agree that there is a very wrong notion people have of beautiful, classy women which is that they are arrogant, stuck up or cocky. So unconsciously, that is exactly how I felt when she walked up to me and i admit that it was wrong of me to feel that way. And much to my surprise, she was very nice, very friendly, very humble and we ended up exchanging numbers.
Even after I left Ghana, we continued to talk over the phone and we became very close, almost like sisters. We were so comfortable sharing our emotions with each other as well as encouraging each other.

I watched an old movie called “AMISTAD” some days ago and even though I had seen the movie before, it all seemed fresh and very emotional to me. Honestly, I was not even sure if it was the kind of movie that should be shown at a time where it seems like slavery never left America.
Regardless of what was declared or what was agreed, slavery is still an essential part of the issues we are facing today. One might think that I am referring to physical slavery alone but the truth is that mental slavery is even more prevalent.

My Heart Breaks For This Generation

I have come to realize that there is no more innocence in the world.

I know some people will read that line and roll their eyes saying "Here we go again", but for the sake of this generation, we have to keep saying it.

The vulgarity, violence and sex that our children are exposed to has become simply ridiculous. Have you tried watching a movie with your kids recently? Even the so called ‘family movies’ still have some sort of hidden sexual connotations, and this generation of kids are smarter than we think so don’t sit there thinking “they don’t know what that means”.
Now, don’t even get me started with ‘Kids TV stations and music’ these days! They have lost their innocence, all of a sudden its acceptable to show kids shows making out?

I found an old episode of my diaries (Stella Damasus Diaries) on YouTube and I have decided to share it with you because I am hoping that it will inspire someone to start filtering what their kids are exposed to and take them back to a time were music, movies and TV shows for kids were more innocent.

Sometimes in life we experience two extremes of different situations.

We do things with good intentions but those deeds produce bad outcomes.
We want to succeed but it doesn't go our way.
We think we are older and wiser but we make silly choices.
We feel that we have learnt enough but life throws curve balls at us.
We believe we know the people around us but we end up ticking them off.

I was looking through my YouTube channel at the beginning of  the week, just to see what changes I can make and how I can improve the content on my channel. Doing this once in a while really helps me know how far I have come and where I want to be. 

As I was scrolling through, I found one of my favorite episodes of STELLA DAMASUS DIARIES. This particular episode resonates with so many women especially wives who have similar stories.
There are a lot of women out there who are struggling with their decisions, identity, responsibilities and purpose.
