by Tonya D Floyd

Uh, who the heck is Tonya D. Floyd, and who cares what she thinks about anything? Well, you do. Because what I have to say was written for or about you; you just don’t know it yet. Go ahead and skim through a few of the thoughts here and see for yourself. Watch how often you nod in agreement. Consider it a try-before-you-buy kinda deal. You’ll find that this is well worth the read, and will make a good reference book—and gifts. Let’s not forget about the copies you’ll buy for your loved ones.

I’m no different from you really. Yeah, I sit around thinking a lot, and I’ve written a few other books already—pretty profound stuff if I say so myself. But the thing that binds you and me is life—the good, the bad, the relatives; we all have stuff. Regardless of where you’re from, or what you do in your spare time, neither you nor I can run from good ole life, and all that comes with it. So I write books to find the people out there who don’t mind comparing notes.
But before long, I had something like my own editorial column going, and my small circle of readers grew into a big one, and spread out into my readers’ circles, and then I found out I was a hit. Somebody recently told me, “Only you say the things so many people are thinking, but would never have the nerve to say.” Actually, a few somebody’s have told me that over the years, and I’m cool with that.

I actually started a blog last year because of this thought for the day concept. People really wanted to hear from me. I even tried quitting, but apparently I make sense on most days. I had no idea all this stuff in my head would come in handy on this level. Now I couldn’t stop if I tried. Each new day brings new challenges, new people, and so much to write about. I love it. Thank you all for allowing my thoughts and me to speak to and for you. I’m humbled. TDF


If it makes me feel, it makes me write. Over the years I’ve sent out thousands of thoughts day by day, offering tidbits on everything from how to have fun to how to turn things around, pick yourself up, hold it together, different ways of looking at things, and on and on, but I never said it would be easy to do any of the above. It really is a process, and I’m deep in mine. See, what I learned was that in my need to de-clutter my own brain, I was helping people do all the above. You could ask yourself (or me) who I think I am to be counseling folks on anything, but I’m just a girl. I’m a human being just like you.

I have noticed a new trend though. I remember when I started sending out my thought for the day, my list was kinda short and people were like “what is she talking about now,” but lately I seem to get more than a few during my day from different people—they’re on social media outlets, in both my in-boxes, and I get the occasional text message too. Apparently people recognize that people need something, and some people are willing to share what they’ve been finding. Can you hear me now? Do you get it now? People are hurting, angry, confused, sad, struggling, lonely, and so many other things that can leave anybody feeling deflated and pessimistic about life in general. So I write.

Now, I know you won’t be easily swayed simply by what I’m saying, but if you pick up Volume 1 and scan through it quickly, you’re either gonna laugh, or you’re gonna nod in agreement. I guarantee it. So give this little reference book a chance. Maybe you’ll find something you really need in here. What have you got to lose?
