• Loyalty… Loyalty… Loyalty

    With relationships, there are always some things we try to hide—as if they don’t exist—in what I like to call our ‘emotional closets’. We do this while telling ourselves how things will get better and hoping for the situation to change. I am here to tell you that this is a bold face lie. Every incident and emotion you have swept into the closet only stays there and rots....and with all things that decay, the stink will come out.

  • You Rock

    Why is it so hard to say good job, I am proud of you, you inspire me, keep up the good work or shouting “you rock”? It appears that the human mind has given up on it’s ability to encourage others and show genuine empathy. The simple joy of encouraging one another and helping the next person appears to be lost. Yes you will hear the few “congrats” but that normally comes with a fake smile and sly remarks behind the person’s back (sometimes to their face) Can’t we take a true moment to actually empathize with another human being and acknowledge the hard work, mental, physical and many times…

  • A Moment

    A moment where the moon does not need you to make it’s habitual destined movement around the earth. A moment when the flowers do not need to feel the warmth of your smile instead of opening their petals to the morning rays. A moment where humans do not depend on your lungs to inhale and exhale for their daily breath. Just A Moment Just One Moment A moment of invisibility. A moment of peace. A moment where the sea will continue to gently caress the golden sands, without the need to break down its shores. A moment where silence and whispers fold and turn the lines of pain and stress into…

  • The Universe has a sense of humor

    If I’ve never said it before, I am saying it now. The Universe has a sense of humor, and not a simple childlike humor. The Universe has an Eddie Murphy Raw or Queens of Comedy level of humor (oh my, I just aged myself with that reference). So last night while having a semi peaceful ice-cream moment; yes I am starting to replace alcohol and a few other things with ice-cream. It is a process that allows me to indulge no matter the time of day or activity. For example eating ice-cream while helping your child with their school project is way more acceptable than drinking wine. Yet both are…

  • Juggling Life's Choices

    If you are not willing to take risks, should you reap the rewards? My brain is not allowing me to put my thoughts together. There seems to be an internal battle within my mind and to agitate resources more a separate battle between heart and mind. One can easily say that my focus is all over the place. This is one of the reasons I have elected to limit my writing lately, as there seems to be just too much to say, feel and write. Cycles of determination to move forward with my life are having a heck of a time combatting self-doubt. And as the universe has shown, there…

  • A Letter to the Ladies/Queens

    February 5, 2015 Dear Ladies/Queens, (To Whom It May Concern, just wasn’t personal enough) Last week I wrote a short entry on this blog about a conversation I had with my daughter, when she asked me “Am I Pretty Mommy”. I actually thought that this was all I would have to say on this matter. But life doesn’t always go as planned. Recent encounters with some wonderful women (in person and via social media) showed me that a few of us, are still carrying some emotional scars that are blurring our vision. Lady, you need to break open your eyes. I have seen your tears, I have heard your whimpers.…

  • POST-ITS

    Literally at the end of 2013, I experienced a rainbow of emotions, all at once. The reservoir of tears in my body was depleted within days. Closely followed by the streams of venom, that ended up flowing from my lips, in defense of my breaking heart and loss. This was just one of those moments when you couldn’t fathom anyway of lifting yourself up again. Family and friends “tried” their best to help me up, but the loss was more than simple hurt and pain. It had in actuality cracked the wall that caged all of my previous pains. Which left the ghosts free to seep back into my pores…

  • Energy

    I promised myself that i would not dwell for too long in the dark corners of the past, at any given time. If you stay in the dark for too long, you start to forget the beauty of the sun’s rays. Today I am going to look into that light and wrap myself up in its rays. I started this blog a few days ago. For my own reasons, I have chosen to keep my name and my pictures far away. There is gonna be some personal stuff discussed here and until I am fully comfortable, I will keep it that way. Who knows one day soon, I may just…
