I don’t believe none of this maaya. If this is supposed to be real life stick a fork in me because I’m done.
At least for today.
There’s not enough pep in my step to make today’s mood turn Sunny. So I’m gonna sit in the clouds of my mind.
Time doesn’t heal everything but maybe it can heal me.
I keep trying on days when jokes aren’t enough to make me laugh and peace isn’t inside of my soul. Yet I push on through the fog and smile anyway.
Honestly speaking about my wants needs and fears. Trying to make my self talk kind. And maybe just maybe drinking more wine than this small body should handle.
Looking for the truth just uncovers more lies so I give it a rest. Sherlock stayed unhappy and ain’t nobody got time for that. At least not right now.
It feels like Monday but I guess it’s Tuesday so that proves that looks and feelings can be deceiving.
I can’t muster up the energy to make a positive post so instead of saying have a good day. I’ll just say….have a day.
Wishing you all a day🌼

When dealing with people I find myself analyzing the best approach. Everyone has their own set of guidelines that they process and respond to. I want to reach out to others in a way that works for them but also for myself so that we have meaningful conversations.
Conversations that are helpful, and a blessing to each other’s lives.
It took me what feels like forever to reach this understanding.
To embrace the positive things about everything. Every interaction. Every thought, feeling and emotion. It was as if a light switch went on and I was no longer a victim because I was no longer allowing myself to be victimized.
I’m not fighting. I’m training my mind to handle itself. By learning how to respond to life with a mindset that reduces the impact of negative noise.
I’ve been in darkness and I danced my way out. I enjoyed family and friends. I studied the ways of peace. I leaned on others for positive understanding and I welcomed changes. I grew up in a sense.
This is why I feel amazing. My circumstances didn’t change drastically but my thoughts have gotten better. My mood has gotten better. I’m seeing better results in my business. My social media is looking better. My health is evolving and I’m actually thankful that I’m alive. I went from wanting to die to wanting to live.
It feels so good to have a little piece of peace daily.
It’s Wednesday night and the weather is calm. I’m in agreement with the universe. I’m happy and in a good spirit and I am sending peace and blessings your way.

Have an amazing night and hopefully peaceful dreams. 🌛

Oh how wonderful it is to find my center. I just did a cool mediation. I started it months ago and forgot about it.
I had a moment of questioning and trying to figure out how things keep getting twisted and turned. Especially when all I want to do is press forward. I just couldn’t understand how and why. After I decided that there where things that I really want to see and I’m not I had to stop myself.
There was one question I hadn’t asked. Why am I looking outwardly for something that I have inside? My version of my life is always going to look different than anything that someone else can see. They can’t understand my version because they don’t live with my emotions or feelings. What looks like one thing to the naked eye looks like a different one on the inside of the person going through it.
My perception of another persons pain means nothing to the person going through it. At that point all I can do is what I think is right according to my life, my thoughts, my ego, and my heart.
Well,what a concept.
Today I’m going to do things that are helpful. Change my speech to uplifting and encouraging. To myself and others.
I took the time to recharge my energy. Find a positive outlook and heal my soul. It’s a great day to have a great day.
Have a happy Sunday and a beautiful life.
And if nobody has told you today I will
You are perfect and everway because there’s nobody else like you 💋

Watching the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Laughing at all the punch lines. Cracking jokes makes life a little more easier for an Ethel like me. (That’s a lil inside joke) . Some things you just hold inside because the explanation is too long.
Chilling mo chilling is the mood. I’ve already had enough drama for one night. Thank goodness it’s a new morning. Well at least in this central time zone it is.
Wonderful. For things to be laughed off and taken lightly. Hardy har har.
Music plays and the holiday is in full swing. Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so excited. Waiting for the Macy’s parade and eating family soul cuisine. Food made from the soul. With a little love in it.
Thankful for days like this. Happy times with friends and family. Coworkers and our own network of social friends. It’s a time to let things go and the flow of positive energy in.
Feels good to always have a little peace in the world. Today I’ll try to be a little quieter with my spirit and a little more gentle with my approach.
Sending you love and kindness 🌞🍁✨
Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

1 am-ish. I’m sitting here listening to a mediating music channel on pandora. It’s relaxing me as I write. My son is bobbing his head to his YouTube with his headphones on and the television is playing simultaneously in the background. Good enough of a night to feel the calm that is around me.
Blessed in the spirit in this moment. Crazy are the days when thoughts override your mind. Little pieces of negative news or thoughts hell even reasons tend to take over. Don’t let them, I say to myself as a reminder.
Yesterday almost got the best of me off it’s keister. Almost knocked me off my feet on accident of someone else’s thoughts.
Thankful that I was able to regain consciousness. Thankful for the moments with my family that give me peace and a clear mind. Thankful for friends that check up on me for unselfish reasons.
Funny how something other than yourself can mean the world to you. Something so real that you’d risk parts of your vision for it. Crazy how life and love intertwine so effortlessly but so chaotically it can drive one insane. Don’t let it , I say to myself as a reminder.
Live today for today because it really does matter who you are and how you came to be that way. Every step,every journey, every reason matters.
You matter. I matter.

Living today for today because that’s all I can do.
Wishing you Peace and blessings

Aye listen up very closely universal watch dogs of the planetary orbital system. Fuck you, fuck this, and fuck that.
Let me clarify.
I’m sitting around minding my business like I said I would and boom. Houston we have a problem.
I start to notice that my hard earned work is becoming the center stage to some negative energy. Uh. What? Who goes there? And why in the hell are there reasons to bother me? I’m chilling mo chilling on a Monday. Enjoying my family and friends with a smile on my face and a techno beat in my heart.
Arrogance tends to be a weapon for those who prey on the weak. Funny how it’s unwanted when the weak are having fun and pushing forward through the storm. Coming from a heritage of the beat down, let down, and stole from I welcome life to send my reparations. Won’t get them though. Nevertheless I strive for greatness on my own back, I didn’t ask for the favors I’m writing for my piece of the universal pie. And I’m happy to do because I’m good at it. It’s my gift from above and I’m blessed to have it.
Can’t stop won’t stop like Charlie Murphy on Dave Chappelle’s comedy show. Enjoying a laugh along the way. Embracing challenges as they come. You get what you get and don’t throw a fit. I’m sure that applies to everyone. Including those with power beyond what is necessary. If getting hit below the belt is a talent then I’m talented asf.
Live life as unexpectedly as long as you fall in line. Hmmmmmmmmm. I’m gonna let someone else be a cadet because I’m a writer and that requires no filter.
It’s starting to look a lot like hypocrisy at it’s best and ain’t nobody got time for that. (Let the church say amen) Amen.
I’m thankful for laughs instead of tears. Fun instead of fake mess and happiness that keeps me going on this journey of life.
Do you because ain’t nobody gonna do it for you.
Have a good night y’all and shine on!✨ (twinkle twinkle)
