Twenty “Sweet” Sixteen


We are two days into the new year and let me tell you, it feels GREAT!
I really can’t describe this feeling but it is like I have a rush of butterflies fluttering around in my heart. Something just feels different. Maybe I am different. I think I have such a better understanding of who I am and what my purpose is on this earth. I have a strong core of friends and family that I love dearly. I have done a good job at screening what needs to stay and what needs to go out of my life. So my theme for this year is: Investment. Consider yourself the ultimate investment. If you do this, you will be careful to choose who and what you give you’re time to.

Make sure that you are becoming richer as a result of of the investment. You are growing in your friendships, personal and professional relationships and even in conversations. Yes, a conversation is the sharing of ideas and thoughts and words that takes place with at least one person. What we hear and listen to has an impact on how we feel. Our mental and personal health is also vital and should be strengthened, conditioned and restored on a daily basis. It is vital that we look to receiving the best product of ourselves. This all happens by what we invest in.

This year I want you to make smarter decisions in what you invest in.

 

If it does not make you grow, Let It Go.

 

Take more chances, make better financial choices, see another part of the world, eliminate fear from your heart and trust in the Father up above.

Believe in LOVE and know that your special someone is coming.

Cheers to Love, Life and the continued pursuit of happiness! ❤️

I’m Not A Secret


So I find myself scrolling through the wonderful world of Instagram and stumble upon a former high school mate’s page. I decided to look at her pervious posts since we recently connected. From the pictures it appears she’s doing well, likes to travel and enjoys living her life. I then see her cuddled up with someone who looks like her mate.

Her smile brightens when she is photographed with him. The captions are followed by the in love emoji:😍. Making references to him being her “other half”. As you all know I’m a true lover of love so I get excited seeing these photos. She’s giving her followers a glimpse of her love life and might I add her guy is very handsome. So I find one photo where she tags his name and me being rather inquisitive, I clicked on his name. I was expecting to see remnants of him being in a relationship showing off my former high school mate. Surprisingly, I saw nothing. Not one photo. I mean not even a fingernail, no hands being held, no nada. It was as if he was a single man. Oh, but I did see a photo, of one woman. It was Kim Kardashian-West wearing a scantily clad white bathing suit which happened to “break the Internet” about a year ago.

I’m sorry, this is a problem. Am I not good enough to show off to your followers? Are you hiding that part of you giving the world the idea you are “not in a relationship”? I am not sure what pact my former classmate and her boyfriend made but as long as you have a Facebook or Instagram account, there better be a picture of me on your timeline. It doesn’t matter how I private of a person you are, you will find a way to show off the person you LOVE. I am not a secret nor did I sign up to be one when we decided to take our relationship further. I should be acknowledged on and off line.

There should be pictures filling up your camera roll as they do mine. It’s bigger than social media. It is about one taking pride in their relationship and showcasing all facets of their happiness. I deserve to feel and see the LOVE.❤️

Friendship Set On Fire

Have you ever had that one person that you couldn’t shake no matter how far the distance was between y’all ? You ever have that person who occupied such a huge part of your life?  That person who gets you inside and out? That person you can be your complete self with? No judgements, no secrets and no filters? In this journey I have felt many things, heartache, confusion, sadness and disbelief to name of few. But one feeling that trumps it all is that thing called LOVE. For better or worst I still will choose it first. 
There’s this special guy who makes my heart smile. I never knew how much I loved him until now. I know you’re all thinking, “Ok, if he makes your heart smile and makes you feel so good why aren’t you with him?” Well, because life is not that simple. If things always matched up they way we wanted we would never have an opportunity to grow. There would be no room for improvement. People are put in your life as either a blessing or a lesson and this guy is a little of both. 

When our paths crossed it was like an immediate connection. The strongest I have ever felt thus far. Sure I am attracted to his physical but this thing we have goes way beyond the surface. It is as if our souls communicated with one another making a pact that would keep us binded forever. Seven years later and this guy gives me the same feeling. 

Every meetup, interaction. Every embrace is more special than the last. The way he looks at me and his touch makes me feel like I’m the only woman in the room. His smile brightens up the darkest of rooms.  He gives me a feeling that’s indescribable. He’s so in tuned with me. Picks up on my energy good or bad and just leaves me with a smile that has been tattooed on my heart. He doesn’t hold back and keeps it all the way real with me. 

And maybe his presence in my life is to serve as a reminder of what it is to feel LOVE. To be reminded of the goodness and the sweetness of LOVE. The way it feels when it covers and caresses you. This LOVE is far from sexual but sensual, soul shaking and breathtaking. Among all these things he is also my friend. Which is what is important when looking for a mate. We have that kind of friendship that has been set on fire which is where real LOVE lies.

I don’t know what the future holds for us but whatever it is, I fully accept and welcome it with open arms. ❤️

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.❤️



Feelings Going Up

I can’t begin to put into words the feeling you give me.

It’s captivating, motivating, thirst quenching, soul shaking and never ending.

You have awakened in me what I thought was dead, deserted, and gone. But should I get comfortable? I mean should I start to get familiar with this feeling? You opened me up to a new world that I don’t ever want to come out of. So are you here to stay?

The walls I have built are slowly coming down..

Brick by Brick..

Layer by Layer..

I think I’m ready to make this feeling last forever. It excites me, moves me and has gotten the best of me. I want to thank you for bringing this new light into my life.

Now seal this feeling with one of your warm kisses on this cold Tuesday night so I can go to sleep and quickly wake up to this feeling again. ❤️

Travel. Explore. Make love to the world.

Wake up to the sun shining on your face. Be filled with the sounds of the ocean. Take in the sounds of the accents spoken by the natives. We often spend most of our time waking up in the same city and same state. We need to step out the comfort of our time zones and into foreign territory.

How can we expect to connect, LOVE and grow if we don’t have an appreciation for other cultures? It is imperative that we experience how other people live and what makes them unique.

Traveling renews our spirit, feeds our soul and clears your mind. Do yourself a favor: pick a country, book a ticket and make LOVE to the world. 🌏❤️

Soul Ties

You will never have to question what’s for you. You’ll never have to think twice about your soulmate. He will be waiting for you. His arms outstretched, his heart open wide, waiting to be engulfed by yours. Your souls will unite creating an everlasting bond. A bond so strong sealed with God’s LOVE. He will make you realize why it never worked with anyone else. He will never let you go and he will profess it to the world. There will come a day he will kneel down before you asking you to spend the rest of your life with him. Be patient. Trust God. Your soulmate is near.❤️
