Here's why I've been missing.
I wish i could say it were due to my busy schedule, but it's not. I wish I could say I lack the inspiration, but I don't. I wish I could say I've lost interest, but I haven't.
I have been missing because my message has changed significantly. I have been missing because I can no longer be true to my blog and write about the things that spark my creative flow without rubbing people the wrong way. I have been missing because my life has been on a constant shift and God has given me a new set of eyes and the way I view the world is very different. The rose colored glasses are long gone and the world just seems like a different place.
As I'm sure you've seen from the countless photos I post.. I am a black woman. Usually, I don't walk around with that in the forefront of my mind but lately it's been the only thing I can think about. At times I feel hopeless. I feel afraid. I am infuriated. I am disheartened. I am worried that whenever one of my family members leaves the house they may not return due to an encounter with the wrong authority figure. That in itself is another blog post waiting to be written but it's the reason I've been quiet.
After countless debates on Facebook and trying to enlighten people on a world outside of their own if gets a bit draining.
My world has been shaken and my truth is uncomfortable for many. Yet.. I know I've been called to spread the word, my knowledge and use my platform for good. So... I'm back. Better than ever. Woke. (Yes, woke. Woke - Being Woke means being aware.. Knowing whats going on in the community. Urban dictionary) Unapologetic.
I hope that you all enjoy the transition that will occur but don't fret... I'm still Desarée at the end of the day and you will be receiving the same content as before.. Now you just have a little more content to explore. 😘✌🏽️

So. I filmed this video November 4, 2015. I've finally mustered up enough guts to post and patience to wait for my computer to convert the file. I was very anxious filming the video and posting it is just the same.
The key to life is to share your gift. To give back. I know that people can benefit from my story.. so here I am to tell it. You know God has funny ways. He'll take you through the father to help others weather the storm. Enjoy.
