About Us

TMCY Motto: Fear little. Love big. Give more. Expect less.

Inspirational Words:

“Planning to write is not writing. Outlining, researching, talking to people about what you’re doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.” ~ E.L. Doctorow

But some one will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith. ~ James 2:18

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in love. ~ 1 John 4:18

  1. i didnt get a chance to read the whole article, but I noticed that you don’t like white, creamy things like me!!! I dont know if you remember that about me or not. Interesting.

  2. I don’t think you ever told me that. lol. But it’s definitely something that I hate with a passion. I make a face anytime someone so much as says mayo ….

    • Yeah so I’m just now reading this…No mayo?? I love mayo, it might be my favorite condiment. Must be my dad’s side coming out of me. HAHA

  3. wow . . .are you like my soul’s best friend or something? Everything on your list of likes and dislikes was on point with my likes and dislikes. esp re: miseducation of lauryn hill. I go through some emotional changes listening to that CD. Dang . . .I miss that woman.

  4. I like this blog. I will continue to lurk, but I wanted to shout you out first.

  5. This is a great blog…very inspirational. I love the open letter format. I’ll definitely continue reading. I’ve joined your group on Facebook and I’m following you on Twitter. Keep doing what you’re doing!

  6. @shawnta: thanks for your words. I’ll keep it up, just keep reading, and spread the word. lol. it’s all about grassroots.

  7. I don’t even feel original anymore , every body above me said what i was gonna say .. you already know u have talent …I so glad u are using it …what hit me the hardest here was the quote :

    “Planning to write is not writing. Outlining, researching, talking to people about what you’re doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.” ~ E.L. Doctorow

    I needed that …

    I read your profile and some of your entries and I am completely blown away. Honestly, I could not have found your page on a better day.

    I’ve had a few different blogs over the years and I started this one with the ambition of actually making something of it, but I’ve let if fall flat. Needless to say I planned to write and I failed. Like your quote says “Writing is writing,” and that is what I am going to do.

    Thank you for the inspiration, and keep up the good work 🙂

  12. “any condiment that is white and creamy (sour cream, ranch dressing, miracle whip, etc.)”

    …Dame you and I are so –>here<— right now! Mayonnaise is to Yolanda as razors are to my legs.

  13. Have you heard about the Maafa 21 documentary that has just been released? It goes into great detail about the who, what and how racist attitudes are being perpetuated today and what the ultimate goal of it is. the shocking thing is that it has been going on for years under the guise of “helping” the black community. You can see a preview at maafa21.com
