The Unique Experience : Listen!!


I often wonder what runs through the minds of the new generation of children today? Have we taken the time out of our busy schedule as parents to listen to them? Its time to slide your parent seat back and get comfortable enough to listen to what your children are trying to tell you. You are not present in your child’s life twenty four hours. often times children face childhood trauma which result in fear and insecurities. We tend to make time for everything else.

I pray for my children daily . It seems like every time I pray for them, it seems as if it gets worse. I never intend to give up on them.


Realistically, parents and children are inseparable when we are doing everything the child wants . But things change when discipline takes place. Some of the disagreements turn for the worse and some times both the parent and the child need a break from each other. Some responses that transfers between the two, are misunderstood because neither person want to listen.


The most hurtful, gut-wrenching, heartbreaking thing to hear is your child tell you how you gave them the “death- ear” when they were crying out for help. The only way to heal is to heal internally which is where all the pain lies. This warfare that is amongst us is here to distract and detour our children.

Not all children get a listening ear. Very few live in a two parent household. Being a child is hard because they are unable to make some decisions. Where do a child go when there isn’t anyone available to listen? Most children struggle because that is what they are around. Children hurt from mother wounds and father wounds. These are the thoughts that ponder the minds of our youth. So the Question to us as parents is are we ready to LISTEN?


Children know their worth. There are strongholds that they are holding on to. Those strongholds are not always physical. Sometimes they come in mental and psychological form. They hold on to so much and they fear change. The biggest communication problem is we DO NOT listen to understand. We listen to Reply. Dreams shatter daily. Sometimes the only way to reach them and give them peace is if they had someone to JUST LISTEN! We are born with two ears and one mouth on purpose!

The Unique Experience: Breaking the Cycle


BREAK THE CYCLE: I’ve been labeled as the “Black Sheep” in my family for as far as I can remember. Not only did I hold that title, but so did my mother and father in their family. Living by that label for so long put me in a dark place in my life. Most of my dreams and goals were shattered when I opened my mouth to the wrong people.

These people were family and friends. They instantly planted their seeds of doubt, their insecurities, and fears within me. These were the circle of people I looked to and thought would be the perfect people to share with. I looked forward to them giving me sound advice. Of course, mission failed.


So when strangers approached me who were genuine people, I didn’t have room to receive what they were giving. I was filled with doubt, fear and insecurities. Ones that were not my own, but took them as though they were.

While not receptive to anything the strangers had to say. I already had the mindset I wasn’t good enough to reach my full potential. I was being pulled down by people who were afraid to fail and didn’t mind being “Normal.”

When I allowed them to have that much power over me, I caused myself to unconsciously turn down and run away from so many life-changing opportunities. All because I shared my dreams them. Not only that, I shared MY OPPORTUNITIES with them.


My life lesson going forth now is this… Just because you are connected by blood and have history with people, it doesn’t mean those same people see your potential. They’re not rooting for you to make it. Everyone that’s your relative by blood isn’t considered your family.

Your enemies could very well be the friend’s you’ve shared your dreams with. It’s important to have a different circle of people who are on the same level you are striving to reach. You don’t have to stay where you are to make people you grew up with happy and comfortable to be around you. Gain new relationships and break the cycle! It’s never about what you are called but what you answer to!

Tracey Michelle Talks With DJ Pressure About Healthy Dating

Tracey Michelle

Meet Tracey Michelle

Tracey Michelle is from Bolton, MS and now lives in Clinton, MS. Her goal is to create a place to encourage safe and healthy dating here in Jackson, MS. She has an event on May 20th at @7pm located at 5738 HWY 80 W Jackson, MS 39209 for singles to come out to mix and mingle with the prepose of moving towards a healthy long term relationship. Tracey and I both had been in unhealthy marriages that lead to being single parents but neither did she nor I stop there. It created an opportunity and space for self-reflection and understanding of our purpose which allowed this conversation to take place.

Are you single or are you dating? If you are single, could it be because of the challenges of actually finding someone who is compatible with your personality and beliefs? Do you find yourself losing faith in believing that you could possibly be in a healthy and happy relationship with an opposite or same-sex individual? I am here to tell you that there is someone out there for you and not to lose hope. During this interview, we uncovered so many tips on dating and red flags to look for to avoid an unhealthy relationship. The discussion covered healthy dating activities, how healthy dating affects your health, what unhealthy dating leads to, and signs to look for when dating.

Tracey Michelle With DJ Pressure

Healthy Dating Activities

There are so many things we can do to help get connected with our partners but seems to run out of ideas. The activities include:

  • Dancing
  • Rock Climbing
  • Hiking
  • Yoga
  • Staying Home (dinner, Netflix, game night)
  • Talking over Wine and Chocolate (home, lake, park)
  • Weekend getaways
  • Bowling
  • Horseback riding
  • Going on Couples Retreats

Dating Affecting Your Health

Dating healthy and helping lead to a healthier and long life. Have you noticed that when you were in a happy space in your previous relationship it helped you handle things a lot differently because you were more calm in your responses? Dating gives you something to look forward to and to be happy about seeing that person or being around that person so your mind is always on “cloud nine” as they say. There is no room for negativity because you are in your happy space. When you are in this space it helps lower the blood pressure and stress hormones that would result in anxiety, anger, or other unhealthy issues in relation to your body and mind. On the positive side, releasing those stress hormones can be done by holding hands, hugging, and having a healthy but active sexual relationship with your partner. You don’t want to end up a Madea, do you? LOL

What Unhealthy Dating Leads To

  • Depression
  • Financial Issues
  • Abusive Relationships
  • Also Failed or Broken Close Family and Friends Relationships

It is important to acknowledge the signs of this type of behavior sooner than later. The later you wait to address it and move on is actually the worse the situation will get. You will find yourself in situations that are very difficult to get out of or maybe even life-threatening. Never allow a person the control to take you away from those who make you who you are and play a huge part in your life. This is a method used to isolate you resulting in manipulation, control, and neglect of your emotional well-being.

Top 10 Signs To Look For When Dating

  • a person who is condescending
  • jealous/ always dependent on you
  • neglectful of your emotional/ physical needs
  • abusive
  • cheater/ unfaithful
  • moody most of the time
  • inconsiderate
  • selfish/self-absorbed
  • sexual attractions to others/ a person who sexualizes others
  • someone who withholds sex as a punishment or to control you

All of these are very important signs to acknowledging a “GET OUT” warning. I encourage anyone in relationships or dating someone with these signs to self-reflect and know your worth. It’s never worth the trouble in the end. The person that deserves to be in your life will be the opposite of every sign listed above. That person will love everything about you and will even encourage you to be the best person you desire to be in this life.

Felicia’s Madcap Podcast: Troop talks about their new single “Lady In My Life”


On March 30th at 7 pm CST, I had the pleasure to interview TROOP. The legendary R&B group which consisted of five black young American all male singing group from Pasadena, California. Troop had earned three #1 singles and ten singles that were top 10 for weeks on Billboard. Their achievements have earned them five albums that included three certified gold and one certified platinum album.


TROOP stood for something more than just a group but actual meaning. Total Respect Of Other People. The group is most well known and respected for its record-breaking number of R&B hits including the cover versions of the songs “All I Do Is Think of You” and “Sweet November”, originally performed by all-time singers The Jackson 5 and The Deele, respectively.

The original song “Spread My Wings” also took off as a number-one hit in during their career.


Starting in the 1980s, after winning on a televised lip singing talent show called “Puttin’ on the Hits,” the group had begun to earn interest from record labels.

Troop was a group created by Rodney Benford with childhood friends Steve Russell, Allen McNeil, John Harreld, and Reggie Warren, whom all eventually signed with Atlantic Records. Troop released their single “Mamacita” from the groups album in 1988. “Mamacita” had gone as high as Number 2 on the Billboard’s R&B Chart.


“Spread My Wings” and “All I Do Is Think of You” (a Jackson 5 cover) were all singles from the album Attitude. Hitting number one charts and remained in the top 10 for several weeks.  Attitude went platinum in 1990.

In 1992 Deepa was released, resulting in the single “Sweet November” hitting number one on Billboard. The group doubled back from Deepa with two more albums, A Lil’ Sumpin’ Sumpin’ (1994) and Mayday (1998).

After releasing Mayday in 98, Troop took a break to rebuild, redirect, and refocus on other work behind
the scenes. From writing and producing projects, collaborations and other endeavors it helped to shape the men they are today.

In 2004, Troop reconnected and begun touring the country while finishing up their sixth album. Since returning, they’ve headlined several shows and also shared performances with other artists they toured with in the past. Artists like Boyz II Men, Brian McKnight, Keith Sweat, Silk, Mario and Jon B.


Troop was showcased on The Late Show with David Letterman, Train and It’s Showtime at the Apollo. Troop made an appearance on the feature film New Jack City, singing a cappella while participating in a soundtrack with Queen Latifah and Gerald Levert. Producing remarkable covers of The O’Jays’ “For the Love of Money” and Stevie Wonder’s “Living for the City”.

In October 2006 “Troop” collaborated with “The Mixx” radio station, becoming the root the group and its growth. Russell is the singing voices of several characters, among them doo-wop singer Little Albert and the five brothers who make up the Jackson 5 pastiche (The Campbell Connection) in the 2006 film version of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls.

Steve Russell also wrote “Take You Down” for Chris Brown, “No Air” for Jordin Sparks, and the Grammy Award-winning “Invisible” for Jennifer Hudson. In February 2010 he released his solo CD titled So Random which became the first release from his label Motel Music Media in January 2010.

Allen McNeil released his sophomore solo album Send for Me in November 2011 . Allen has also stepped into the role of an activist. In 2014, John “Jon Jon” Harreld announced that he was dedicating his time to working on a solo project and later released a single covering Luther Vandross “Never Too Much“, which is also in connection with this new project. Unfortunately, Reggie Warren passed away on March 14, 2021, after an illness that he fought over time, He was 52 at the time.
