Jamahl Joyner: Hindsight is 2020

Jamahl Joyner: Hindsight is 2020

January 6, 2020

Happy New Year! There’s a saying, “Hindsight is 20/20”. Hindsight is defined as: perception of the nature of an event after it has happened. In this first episode of 2020, I shared how my hindsight is becoming my foresight. I’m allowing myself to let the past teach me something; hence, hindsight in the year of 2020. I have the ability to learn and grow from my mistakes and the power to course correct my life to get back on track to confidence, peace, and clarity! Jamahl, joined me in this fun, transparent, and encouraging episode to discuss:

  • 3 things that we learned in 2019 that we’re bringing into 2020
  • How letting go of people and mindsets that didn’t serve us brought more peace into our lives and marriage
  • How to have difficult and honest conversations in a committed relationship
  • How to keep the spice in your relationship (planning a Sexcation)

THROWBACK: When Should Divorce be an Option?

December 29, 2019

This is the last episode of 2019 ya'll! Thank you so much for rockin with me this year. I truly appreciate and adore all of you. In today's episode, I took it back to an earlier show this year when I answered the question, "When should divorce be an option?" I dived into the 3 A's in this episode although since the episode I've added another "A" for Abandonment. I explained why I added it in this episode. This will be a difficult yet enlightening talk to end the year off with. Love you all and take care of yourselves!
