Surviving Distractions: How to identify them and how to stop them

By Felicia Clark 
I sit down to do a write-up with my deadline for completion in two days. After showering, I change into my pajama bottoms and an oversized shirt. I grab a glass of wine, chips, and my laptop. My blanket and pillow are on the sofa. My rain sounds are going. I decided that everything's in place. I plop onto my sofa and proceed to write. All of sudden, PANDEMONIUM. “Ma! Can you please bring me a towel?! I forgot to grab one!” One of my sons yelled from the bathroom.
After grabbing a towel and handing it to an awaiting hand sticking out the slit of the bathroom door, I sat back down upon the sofa and proceeded to write. 
Ring! Ring! Unh unh, not answering. The phone stops ringing. Ring! Ring! Same number. Not answering. Then it rings AGAIN! Same number, belonging to my bestie. She’s called 3 times in a row. She never does that. Something must be wrong. I decided to call her back and try to make it short; no more than 10 minutes, tops

Thirty minutes later, she’s just get…

Can We Be Your Sistas?

My mom  has a best friend, that she has had my whole life and most of hers (I think the count is, over 50 years now). Every week, they share their stories with each other either on the phone or in person. They can talk on the phone every day, and yet, each time, it would seem like, they hadn't spoken in years.

You could even feel the love in their voice messages, "Hey Ging, it's me G!", or " Hey Sista Gurl, it's me!" The love that they share for each other runs DEEP. They're soul mates. They're Sistas. The kind that are not blood related, the type of sister that is chosen. They lean on each other when times are rough, they celebrate in each others joy, it is the most perfect love.

Studies have proven that women live longer, and one of those reasons is because we allow ourselves the opportunity to vent, and share our frustrations to our friends. By doing so, the slums of every day life don't kill us (Look it up, it's a fact)!

Some of you may not have a SistaGurl in your life right now, I'm humbly asking, will you allow myself and my friends to be your Sistas? We will write with you in mind to help you, and ourselves, reconnect with our fabulous, wonderful, healthy, and spiritual selves. As a special bonus, we also have some BROTHAS to add input as well!

We will be blogging about Love and Relationships, Health and Beauty, News and Politics, Arts and Entertainment, and Black Excellence; you know, the typical sista-type conversation. So try us with your morning coffee, or on your ride to work, cause we have your back, and we're thinking about you!

Sending Love Your Way,

Capt SistaGurl.
