A Woman’s Work



You know a woman’s value is unmatched. Her purpose in this world couldn’t even be put into words. She is a child bearer: a creator of life. She is a nurturer that provides care to her children. She is intuitive, creating a bond that has been sealed in LOVE and strength.



She holds the weight of the world on her shoulders serving as the backbone for her family. No matter how heavy the load for her delicate back she is expected to stand up right showing no signs of weakness.



She is expected to look her best, wearing clothing that contour to her body showing off her voluptuous curves. Her lipstick traces the shape of her lips which hold the sweet words she uses to encourage her man in tough times. 



How different life would be without the presence of a woman? Before you spit out words of disrespect and slander against this precious jewel, think about the role she plays in your life. Before you decide to step out and have an affair and destroy the foundation you have built remember she is responsible for breathing life into your children. Before you think of putting a hand on her and inflicting her with pain, know that she is a reflection of your mother, aunts, sister and any woman you hold with stature. 



So take a moment  to honor, respect, cherish and appreciate  a woman’s work. For without her LOVE could never exist.❤️

6 months and over 2,000 views later so much had changed.

My vision has sharpened. My expectations for life have heightened. Turning 30 feels and looks great. I found my voice through words and I have fallen more in LOVE with myself.

This blog was developed in August, 2014 when I was in a great deal of frustration, embarrassment and disbelief. Instead of dealing with my issues in a different way, I decided to create this platform thanks to the encouragement of a dear friend.

I must say this has been one of my best accomplishments to date. To think that I have the ability to create all these pieces and have the courage to share what’s in my heart is pretty amazing. I thank everyone and anyone who has decided to follow me on my journey, who leaves comments on my posts and who are just inspired overall. Writing is a form of self expression that captures raw and pure emotion and I am happy to be apart of this community that celebrates “soul writing”.

Through my blog, I will continue to give all my readers only quality level pieces that will connect to what it means to LOVE and LOVE unconditionally. I hope my words lead you to compassion, patience and understanding.

“Beauty” Is Her Name

LOVE me not only for what you can see but LOVE me for what you can feel, for there is where my true beauty lies..

What is beauty? What makes someone beautiful? I hear the word thrown around a lot these days yet I wonder if people know the true definition of what it is to be beautiful.

Beauty is not in the concealer and foundation you apply to your face. It is not the designer brand lipstick that enhances the plumpness of your lips. It is not the 24 inch Brazilian textured extensions that you order from overseas that leave you with hair reminiscent of your favorite celebrity. It is not the miraculous bra that has given way to your cleavage that is easily noticed in your v-neck shirt. It is not the “Valencia” filter you use to brighten up your #selfie that will now appear on Instagram. (Hashtag no filter).

Let me tell you what beauty is ..

Beauty is in your walk. It’s in the warmth of your words. It’s the passion that lies behind your eyes. It’s the depth and width of your heart. Beauty is in the way you LOVE. Beauty are those intangibles that you possess. It’s long-lasting, endless, smudge-proof and water-resistant. It’s something you just can’t leave home without. Beauty is radiant, shining it’s light on everything it touches. LOVE is my kind of beauty.❤️
