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.❤️



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. ❤️
