More Like Mrs. Michelle Obama

There are people in this world who we admire, make us better, who we gain inspiration from. For me, my mother is definitely number one on my list. Not because she is my mother, or the woman who gave birth to me but because she offers me so much wisdom and she is the person who taught me how to LOVE. It is because of her, I can show that LOVE to others. I wanna talk about another woman who the nation has grown to love over the past 8 years: Mrs. Michelle Obama.


This incredibly amazing woman has exemplified what beauty, intelligence and grace truly means. She is not just the wife of President Obama, she created her own lane.

She launched “Let’s Move!”, bringing together community leaders, educators, medical professionals, parents, and others in a nationwide effort to address the challenge of childhood obesity.This initiative has changed the lives of our youth nationwide giving families the resources to make better decisions about their child’s nutrition. She has made having a healthy lifestyle a necessity.


She has been coined the most stylish First Lady in history. When Mrs. Michelle Obama comes through, you better make room! She demands attention upon entry and she keeps her mane “on fleek”. Her diction, her poise and confidence is what all women should emulate.


I am truly blessed to have witnessed a woman who looks like me become the first Lady of theUnited States. What she has done for our nation will carry on for generations to come. It is our duty as women to inspire and plant seeds of wisdom and continue the legacy that has been set forth by Mrs. Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama. We shall uplift other woman as well as our young girls of the world. Be more like Michelle and you will move more into LOVE.❤

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.❤️

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.

Always remember, “Until we know what it is to love ourselves we won’t know what it is to LOVE one another”. ❤️

To Be Married? or To Be In Love?

A topic I was asked to speak about is being married vs. being in LOVE.

First off let me start off with saying my family is West Indian. This may not be applicable to all West Indian homes but I believe there is some validity in what I’m about to speak about.

With that being said, there are high expectations for their children. Education, Career and Marriage are at the top of the list and in that order. But what about the LOVE? That’s an element that’s not really pushed. You see a man, you guys are dating, shortly after he is expected to put a ring on it. But what if he is not the one? And God forbid you and this gentlemen get real busy on night which leads to an unexpected pregnancy. Telling your West Indian parent will be one of the hardest things you will have to do. Questions of marriage will surely arise and the pressure will be on to tie the knot.

Will the relationship have a chance to last? When do we begin to find LOVE in this relationship? Have we become just a business arrangement? Is it easier for your West Indian parents explain to your other family members and friends there is now a union that exists? But then we are missing the whole point of what it is to Love and be in LOVE.

I don’t want to be rushed into marriage nor into LOVE. I want a LOVE that is natural and pure that grows over time. Society has made it so hard for us to even see marriage in an honest light. The marriage becomes terminated before it even begins and now you’re left with dealing with lawyers, paperwork and filing for divorce. You and your once “husband” are no longer on speaking terms and you have to explain to your child why “daddy” is no longer living at home.

Marriage should be treated the same way as LOVE: It’s Forever. Do not go into a situation trying to appease your family or friends. For you will always end up last and will spend countless years full of regret, resentment and heartbreak. Choose your LOVE carefully and it will yield a fruitful Marriage one day. ❤️
