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

Sisterhood Challenges

By Capt SistaGurl

Women are perfectly imperfect. Our splendors stretch beyond sight and if banded together, we could undoubtedly change the world. In order for this to occur, we need to unify.

I believe that the core contention of female division is based on the following five components:

Girls vs. girls: The sandbox beef
Mother vs. Daughter
Workplace Competition
Color-ism Issues
The Boy is Mine

A couple of general themes will most likely arise during the series.
Do we ever stop to think or question if we have to be each other's adversary?
I am not doing this series to blow smoke or pander.
I chose it because I believe in the power of sisterhood, and have struggled and continue to
struggle with my relationships with women just like everyone else.
Not everyday is a great day for the sisterhood, but self reflection and healing is key to ensure,
that even when we think things that aren't "sister-like" about another woman,
we understand where it came from.

So.. like any healing process.. let's start from the beginning.

Stay tuned for part one!
