The Dr in DC

FullSizeRender-4IMG_6507-1I don’t always have an opportunity to travel but I love it when I do.  When I go somewhere I really like to act like a local, go to their local eateries, hang at the best bars, all of that townie stuff.  My trip to DC wasn’t much different but I did hit up some touristy areas, don’t judge me.

Then my dear friend Charita and I organized an amazing group of motivated and dynamic entrepreneurs for Sunday brunch at Lincoln.  We supported each other, shared with each other, and had some seriously amazing girl boss time.

Then I took a very personally meaningful trip to the National Museum of African American History and was given a tour by my dear friend Timothy.  She’s not just a phenomenal friend but also an amazing curator.  African history is American history and as someone that always seeks knowledge, I was constantly surprised and frequently moved to tears.  I recommend everyone go.

It was sugar, not cotton that brought my ancestors here.

9-year-old Rose was sold to a different plantation from her mother and on the auction block, her mother gave her this bag filled with a dress, walnuts, and a lock of her hair.  she never wanted Rose to forget who she was.  What were you doing when you were 9?  I know I wasn’t doing this.

Nat Turner’s Bible.  It’s amazing to me how religion comes to soothe the fears of people in the direst situations.  Faith is a beautiful thing.

Advice September 20, 2011

I’m coming back from a most joyous occasion, one of my fav cousins DC weddings.  Nuptials always get us ladies obsessing with our futures and such and worried about finding the “right” one.  I have patients come in all the time looking for a good relationship and lamenting their dating woes.  Well let me help you get what or who you want.  The key to getting what you want is to describe what you want in specific terms.  When I say specific I mean specific, does he play golf, read Tolstoy, love kittens, work on Capital Hill?  When we are presented with a specific problem our brains, naturally, begin to problem solve.  The more specific you are the easier it will be for your frontal lobe to solve your problem.  It leads you to start behaving in a way that will get you what you want.  For example if you want a significant other who plays golf you may find yourself on a golf course where you are more likely to bump into him.  If you have any questions let me know, I can get more specific if you need.
