Video: Why I left…pt. 2

Hey peeps! I miss you already! So, as promised, here’s a video about my thoughts, feelings or shall I say the story behind this new repatriation back to the U.S.

Oh, you didn’t get the memo? Shocked!



I’ve posted it all across social media and umm…well you all were the first to know. In case you didn’t see that initial post, you can catch that right here.

I didn’t want to write out a long response to the reasons behind why I left. Some things are better received when spoken and this was one of those instances.

No, this is not an explanation to prove a point to anyone. Please believe… People simply want to know. Hey, I’ve lived abroad for sometime now and to just up and move is some news!

I’m truly humbled that I can share my story, testimony and experiences with you and that I’ve been able to do so over the years.

This is a long video…so make sure you put me on your blue tooth, home speakers or car, for that matter. Just listen. Reflect…and of course, tell me what you think.

Don’t worry, my blogging experiences will continue. I will speak on my current repatriation experience from an honest and transparent standpoint. I’m still growing and going through the process of life one day at a time and if I can offer any guidance, so be it.

For a more up to date inquiry on my daily happenings, Instagram has been my go to social media source. It’s more accessible when I’m out and about.

Getting back in the swing and appreciation of blogging will require consistent dedication. I plan on doing that but as you and I both know, life happens.

Watch the video. Let me know what you think.


Blessings to you!

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! (Mouth agape) 😮😮😮😮! Haven’t seen the video yet, but I am about to. To be honest, from the previous article you were featured in, it was a wonder you didn’t move to the states any sooner. You went through a lot. So much so that I was even questioning my motives to even travel to Africa. But I’m about to watch this half hour YouTube video and come back with my commentary. I’m a ms black expat supporter NO MATTER WHAT!

    Thanks again for sharing your journey with us and for giving us more input about why you decided to move. I hope everything is going well for you as you continue to transition. I know moving is a process and it can take time getting adjusted again.

    I personally would love to hear about your repatriation experience once you get settled. I have often wondered how it will be moving back to the states after being out of the country for so many years. My husband and kids were in the states a few months back and he explained to me how different it was being back. But he was coming from the perspective of being a “visitor” so his ultimate objective was seeing family/friends and taking care of “business”.

    I would like to read about/hear the things that you enjoy about being back “home” and what you miss about life abroad. Also, I want to hear more about your family’s perspective about your expatriate experiences.

    Many blessings sister!

    Sorry to hear about the medical complications of your child. Happy to see that you’re back in the states. Everything will work itself out in the long run. You followed your inner compass, something most people refuse to do.
