Writers Needed Survivor Series.png

Tell Your Story!

The Sum of Many Things will dedicate the month of October to stories of Survival in honor of Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer Awareness Month! I am looking for women of color who want to share their stories of survival, healing and transformation. It does not have to be about Domestic Violence or Cancer. This is about celebrating our incredible strength and resilience through anything that tried to break you, change you or destroy you. If you are interested in sharing your story, please email me at sumofmanythings@gmail.com.
Tell your story and help another woman heal!


Love Is....

I don’t claim to know the in’s and outs of the Akil’s real life but their show definitely made me think about the way we define love and what loving one another really means. Maybe I’m unrealistic but I don’t want a love story rooted in pain, trauma and heartache. I want to be a supportive, loving and encouraging mate to my potential partner but I don’t want to be required to endure trauma, suffering and heartache in the process. Things happen in relationships and dating but how much do black women have to endure in order to be loved by our men?

About D. Sanders

My logo, a woman blooming from a Lotus, represents everything that I am and everything I hope to be; a woman blooming from wounds, hurt and pain. One petal at a time, I am blooming into my purpose. In spite of being surrounded by the muddy waters of life, I flourish. The Sum of Many Things is a Lifestyle and Personal Development Blog a for women of color who do it all in spite of “life’s mud”. It is my hope that I speak for women who refuse to be confined or imprisoned by their circumstances but instead bloom from wounded spaces.” This blog is a piece of my heart that I share in the hopes that we heal, grow thru it, survive and thrive. This is a “safe space”, without judgement or preconceived notions of womanhood, motherhood, sexuality, and femininity. We define who we are and who we want to be. We are the Sum of Many Things but in all things we remain beautiful and blooming into our purpose and destiny. Thank you for visiting my website and I hope to connect with you soon!- D Sanders
