No greater love

Looking at the faces of your dreams and imagining them coming to life.

That’s what I learned to do as my children grew up.

I learned to put away those dark places in me that were evil and ugly. Along the way I still made mistakes. I’m deeply sorry for those things today.

I love my children more than they will ever truly know because I don’t have the know how to show my emotions appropriately. I’m still working on my journey to the best version of myself.

This life keeps teaching that I can still learn and be better. Giving me chance after chance. I’m grateful for that.

Today I set my intentions on a hug from my daughter. I love her with all my heart. Her brothers and extended siblings too.

Today I say get out of your own way Kandee and take this opportunity to grow.

Wishing you all growth and love on this Wednesday in November.

Can you fight for us?

Sally tried one more time. Tired and frustrated she aligned her whole body’s energy and forced a chi ball with her hands.

On command she threw it against the brick and iron strong wall with a one, two, three punch.

Instantly all the pieces exploded in the air, as the bust cleared. Visual proof was now shown.

Sally had known all along that she could do it. Her frustration was that she was hand picked by the elite group and then repeatedly pushed to see what see would and could do.

If the point was to make them believe she had already made them believers.

The head of the program came behind the glass and put out his hand. Well done ma’am. I didn’t think you had it in you and now I see. If you’re ready I’d think that we’re ready to fight for us.

Sally shook her head is belief. No disrespect but who the fuck is gonna fight for me.

I’m wrong but it’s alright with me

I’m extremely focused on my betterment. 
Everyday I see a quote,or a person, or an ideal that is opposite of my dreams my views and my vision for my life. 
I’m sure that we all do. 

I’m sure that everyone has something to mentally tell us that we’re wrong. Here’s the thing. You may be wrong. 

According to that person or that information you are definitely wrong. 

So what. Be wrong then. 

If it’s right for you who cares if it’s wrong for someone else. I’ve said this time and time again. 

Nobody has to live your life but you. Live it. If you covered what you could handle today then you did enough. 

  
Everyone has a different mentality. What’s not enough for someone else is just enough for me. 

I got some good advice on how to move forward with meeting other authors and people on social media. It worked. The man said do a little until it meant a lot. 

I’m not chasing fame. I’m chasing my dreams. If they include fame… well hot dayum! Bonus!!

I’m chasing meaningful relationships and friendships that last. I’m chasing peaceful vibes and beautiful thoughts. If I die today I want to know that I went on happy. At peace with myself. 

Nothing in the world is worth my thoughts being at war with themselves. Ten months ago I chased enlightenment. Meaning I went after finding myself. Finding out what life meant to me. Finding out what my beliefs were and what was really important to my soul. 

  
It wasn’t easy. I almost lost someone I hold very high in my life. Trying to become more I almost broke down. Then one day like a light bulb it came to me to go backwards. Figure out what was important to me and then move forward with my life. I’m doing that daily. 

It’s why I can be grateful. 

I’m owning my life. I’m responsible for what I feel. I’m strong in my weaknesses. 

I refuse to go at any other pace than my own. The people who love me really love me. They have zero desire to change me. I have zero desire to change them. We just grow and flow together. That doesn’t always look good but it’s reality. I love my life. 

I’m blessed for the people who I have meet along the way. I’m even more blessed for the people who have stayed. 

  
Be thankful for the journey you’re on. That’s the only advice that I can give. Because if you’re thankful in the small oh how wonderful life will be when your world becomes bigger.

Keep ya head up. Hold on to your truth and don’t let nothing stop your growth.

Happy Friday y’all do it YOUR way!

This week

Grateful for another week. 

Trying times a week can be. 

  
When hearts are heavy and drama tends to prevail. I can sometimes fail to be the best version of myself. 

 Finding gratitude is a way of life. 

I push myself into the realm of gratefulness even though I have ups and downs. I push myself to be thankful for others. I’m choosing to change my ways. 

  
The choice has been made to be better. My gratitude doesn’t end at the end of this month. This was a preview to the life that I would like to lead going forward. 

Moments that I’ve been grateful for this week include laughter. They include loved ones. That include a special someone that means the world to me. 

  
Day 25 what moments this week made me grateful.

I’m grateful for today.

Rooted Flow 

Sometimes in life things do not go my way. 

I have often tried to force situations. Pray for situations. Lie to make a situation go the way I wanted it to. 

Finally I’m at a place in my life where my ability to go with the flow has brought me through some tuff times. It has opened my eyes to different points of view. It has been a pain in my rear end but it has also been a gift from above. 

  
I’m grateful that by allowing myself the room to breakdown my barriers and climb over my on doubts. I have been able to see the world in a with a renewed state of mind. 

I’m more flexible with life. I’m more open to the beauty around me and I have become incredibly thankful for this gift. I probably wouldn’t have tried a lot of the things that I’ve tried. I would have closed myself off to the world and climbed into a mindless consciousness.

  
I can handle myself better now. I owe a lot of that to my ability to flow. To move freely,to move forward. To bounce back from fear and mistakes. To enjoy the highs and the lows. I’m still figuring out life. As I do I feel blessed and less stressed. There were days were I spent time just speaking negative thoughts to myself. Days where I couldn’t see myself being anything to anyone. Let alone a blogger to an online community. 

I didn’t know I had a voice. I didn’t know that I would matter to anyone else. I’m thankful for the opportunity, the path and the peace of mind. I’m grateful for all of you. For your comments ,for the likes and for just allowing me to have a voice on this earth.

Day 13 of grateful January and the question is: What abilities are you grateful for? I’m grateful for the ability to change, to grow and to be my most authentic self reflection.

Memories that remind me to be happy 

When I was about 14 years old I went to Kansas City to stay with my great grandmother. I wasn’t being safe with my life and needed to be removed from my friends at the time. I was evolving myself in activities that were dangerous to myself and others. I needed a change of environment.

My parents sent me there to keep me out of trouble for the summer. I spent those months trying to figure out things about myself. During my time there I visited my grandfather and my great aunt Zista. I remember being afraid of that big ol worn down house. The creeks and the sounds from the old wood. I jumped in her bed for safe keeping. I knew if I stayed in her room just long enough for the sun to come up that I would be alright to sleep. I needed the sunlight to shine through and show me the things the darkness couldn’t show me. 

  
That’s the beauty of the light. 

Nature’s natural light showed all the things that regular light couldn’t. Once the sun came up I could see everything that was once hidden by shadows. Hidden by darkness.

Today I woke up with some tummy issues and with some soul issues. I let myself be guided through some yoga postures and then I let my thoughts be guided through some healing. 

The beauty of memories are that they can be seen from different angles. The beauty of life is that out of the darkness comes light. 

What memories are you grateful for? I’m grateful for them all, but definitely this one in particular.

Healing my soul and embracing my truth

A place of change

In a place where change can grow the view is different. Mindset is better and hope resonates throughout your soul. 

Old pains are yet to be healed, but instead of running from the pain I walk through it. 

I do not have my life together.

I don’t know if I ever will.

What I do have is hope.

Each day new things arise and new information is available to me. The ability to receive them with grace and kindness is the new zen in my life. 

I speak up for change. I’m learning how to speak life into it also. I want to illuminate light. I’ve been given the gift to love myself including my flaws and weaknesses. I’m grateful for the life that I have been given. 

Sometimes I can’t always find the positives. That’s when I know it is time to sit in stillness and allow life’s journey to evolve. 

  

I don’t know what 2018 will bring. I’m thankful to be alive to see it. There was a time when death seemed like a comfort zone. Now life seems like the present and the universe is the blessing. 

I’m growing up in mind,body,soul, and spirit. 

Getting older has its benefits.

When laughter isn’t the best medicine 

Imagine dying of starvation. Bringing yourself to a point of begging for donations to live and nobody hearing your call. Now imagine your voice is mute and you can’t find paper to write a sign to even ask for help as you slowly die. 

Is this image funny?

No. It isn’t. 

I give out of my own pocket anytime I can. As I watch people constantly judge the homeless ,the underpaid ,the underprivileged, and the unfortunate. I’ve witnessed those in need laughed at. Used as an example instead of being helpful we are a culture who would rather watch others suffer instead of helping. We laugh at our fellow humans pain as if the shoe could never be on the other foot. 

Today I encourage you to find someone in help. Go look for them and dig in your pocket and help. Buy someone a sandwich. Donate to a homeless shelter. Give someone something other than your prayers and best wishes today. Let’s make an actual difference in a real person’s life this holiday season. 

  Everyone is not mentally strong. Not everyone has somewhere to go. 

They don’t need your judgement and they damn sure do not need your laughter. They need your help. $1.50 can order a sandwich 50c can buy a bottle of water. Be of service.

I’m not laughing because it’s not funny.

Sending you all peace and blessings

My forward attitude

Tuesday. Second day of the week. The day before humday. For those who get to do some humping. Unfortunately I’m not one of those….meh.

I’m sitting around thinking what the lesson for today was. Self reflection is as important as self esteem. The need to build up others also includes yourself. As I do that I know that I need to be careful not to constantly feed my ego. Some days are harder than others. My flaws don’t determine my worth. I ask that the universe continues to remind me to embrace, replace, and rebuild my spirit to fulfill my plan for life. 

  
The picture in my head may not be the same as someone’s else’s. That’s okay differences makes the world go around. The energy pull from negatives and positives still pulls the universe. But to where? Is the final destination the same?

Work work work. Do it, if it fully makes you happy. When the check marks are checked off, do you sleep peacefully at night. 

Anger. Have it, if it fully comes with happiness and hope for a better way of living. When the check marks are made, do you sleep peacefully at night. 

Forgive. Find it, if it fully comes with your actual soul finding it’s comfort. 

The point I’m making is be honest with who you are. As I have to be honest with who I am. I’m changing my world around me bit by bit. When I extend my love and light to others there’s a shift of attitude to myself and anyone who feels where I’m coming from. I’m grateful to use my voice, resources and gifts to contribute. It mends the broken pieces. 

I guess I’m ready for us all to be meanders in real life. I’m an person who tries to be a better human. I don’t always do that.

 So on the days I can’t be a healer I’ve learned to remain inside my lane. I’m not here to change folks. I’m here to express how I’m changing, but that takes action. Words aren’t enough. Work isn’t enough when the worker is sick, unhealthy, depressed and crazy. That builds chaos. The world has enough of that.

Today I’m reminding myself and you to let go of the pain. Unless you like pain. 

For every action there’s a little hope for grace and mercy. When I can’t be nice I know it’s time to be attentive to my own issues. It becomes time to go a different route. If I feel depressed it becomes time to think in a higher mindset. If I feel unhappy it’s time to let go of the need for something outside and heal the things inside of myself.  So that I can continue to be the light that shines for others. 

  
Simplicity is beautiful. One small change can lead to bigger results and the world becomes a better place just by living in my truths. When I’m writing I want to bring hope to the hopeless. Bring acceptance to those who don’t feel accepted and blessings to the planet. This may be a hippy mindset. A little too soft in a hard world, but that’s me. I’m a lover not a warrior but I stand in my gentleness and it’s as powerful as any sword. 

Today turned out fine. My heart is intact and my mind is at ease. Gratitude turned my attitude into my peaceful Tuesday night.
