As I elevate my mind pass the past wrongdoings of my inner recollections I feel as if I’m floating freely.
I’ve learned that I use certain things to remove pain but then I caused another kind in its place.
Being lost in the mind is like a wilderness with out light. It’s cold and lonely. As I push away those thoughts I’m finding that I can be the light that I need.
I want to get high on a cultivated culture. Which shows myself and others how to remove unhealthy thoughts and turns them into powerful gifts.
The gift of love, the gift of growing, the gift of succeeding, and the gift of inner beauty. For me to except myself I needed to uncover my flaws. I’ve forced myself to see the damage. It hasn’t been easy to face myself in the mirror. I have to say it’s definitely been worth it.
Today I want to encourage healing. Uncovering the truth shall set me free if I allow myself to cross old barriers and find new beginnings. I hope I encourage others to join me.
With gratitude I send you peace and blessings
Sitting on my couch listening to the late night response to daybreak.
A bird chirping outside my door.
Giving life to the ghetto. Singing songs of praises for making it through another day.
Perched on the tree of life reminding me even though nothing stays the same.
That some things never change.

Teeny tiny story of a world unperceived. Underneath the glory of the light inside all human beings. Filled up with spirit deep down into souls. Giving divine comfort for all who waywardly flow.
Sending unspoken knowledge. Attention to the truth no one knows.
Letting the galaxies collide and still searching for a map that even the most skillful of explorers cannot find. Trying not to get caught in time warps. Run hurry before it’s the end of mankind.
Settled back down in her comfy chair. The book has closed and the story hasn’t ended in despair. A goodnight fable interesting indeed. Everyone can take the wave all they have to do is read. ✨
Have a safe night everyone

Day has turned into night and Wednesday is about to be a wrap.
Spent the day putting together my latest book. A small novella based on a fictional story that I started from right here on this blog. Some good old fashioned fiction with a twist of mystery.
I told myself I’d have one done by December and by George I mean what I say. Being an indie author has a special place in my heart. I do it for me and that’s enough. My stories all have a piece of my soul my written babies.
After a long day of writing and editing I needed a nice way to unwind. Yoga is my go to form of stress relief. I’m super thankful that my totally awesome sister got me a new yoga mat from BalanceFrom Goyoga through Amazon. She picked out a grey mat with lots of comfort when I do floor stretches. Which is very important when I’m bending and kneeling this way and that way.
Yoga is a great way to start easing the stresses in your life. It brings together mind, body and soul through breathing and allowing the movements free you.
Feeling refreshed and offically sleepy I’m ready to eat some dinner and hit the cloud of dreams awaiting me.
Have a good evening and peaceful slumber everyone.💋

Like a neon sigh in the night I brightened up my thoughts and brought laughter to my soul. I embrace those close to me and celebrate their achievements. We shine together in this life. I’m grateful for family,friends and beauty from inside.✨
The universe starts to bring me opportunities when the intention is real. I’m focusing on my forward momentum. I’m not always sure of where these things will lead me. I’m just making sure that I’m at least open to the ideas of others.
In the past year I have been up and down with my thoughts. Like everyone else I fall short of knowing where I want my life to be. I seen a quote that said to rest as long as you don’t quit. That’s the best anyone can do. Circumstances are tough. Sometimes it’s important to shut out the world and even your own negative thoughts and let your mind be at ease.
I find myself trying to connect to life. In all of its glory. I’m not trying to look for anything that doesn’t fit in my box. It really only has to look good for me. It’s my life. If I don’t enjoy it then I’m living the wrong life for me. I embrace all my highs and lows. That’s life right?
It’s Friday y’all. Enjoy the T.G. I and the F 🦋💋

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.

Sitting around on a Thursday chillin mo chillin. Thinking about the comedy show on Netflix that I just finished watching. Laughing to myself about one of the punchlines.
The night was young and my mind was racing. I had a huge fight with the ex and things were getting interesting and painful. I needed something to calm my soul. I put on a little music. I’m in mid dance when my IG notification lit up. I kept dancing. It pinged again. Oh brother. Who is it! I grab my phone and open the app. My DM was lit up red. Two messages. Hmmm.
I open and low and behold it’s Mr. Big Shot. Now I should have been excited but I wasn’t. I asked him to call. Why in the hell is he in my DM. Thinking that the DM is relationship purgatory I read the messages. First one read ” wanna do something fun”. Second one read “you know you do”. Cocky.
I answered back “nope a dope”. I put the phone down and continued to dance. Ping. I opened the message. It was a corny dude in his underwear. He had on nice one though. Thumbs up to him. I was just about to put the phone down when I received another ping. This time it was Him again. “Wtf is nope a dope?” I laughed out loud. I replied “it’s a no weirdo.” He must have been shocked because I got nothing back. Oh well. ✨
3:33 am. Ping,ping,ping. “I want to take you somewhere. Now do you wanna do something?” Hmmm. I text back “You got my attention.” Ping. “I’m outside.” What the what?!!!! I look out the hotel window and sure as sh*t there his big ass is. Looking like the dude from Say Anything without the radio. I get dressed. Splash my face with water,throw on a dress and heels. Put on my fancy wig and bring my make up bag. I come outside and he takes one look at me and says ” where are you going like that?” Mannnnnnnn if this dude didn’t look good I’d give him a right straight in the throat. Instead I replied “with you”. He smiles and winks. Opens the door and says ” get in.” So I did.
We’re riding and talking having a grand ol time when he pulls up to a rather creepy building. I looked at him looked back at the building. Looked back at him. Duuuuuuude. I’m trying not to act scary but this ain’t Halloween mutha fucka. He must have felt my energy change so he says “don’t worry it will be fun I’ll protect you.” Hmmm Okay I’m thinking well you wanted to come girly it’s now or never.
We walk in and it looks like American Horror Story is filming. Weird folks doing weird things. I’m uncomfortable and itchy. The music is blaring and drinks are flowing. I take a shot of Remy and sit down. I spot another woman. She looks just as confused as me. The room has familiar faces but only because I’ve seen them on a screen. Everyone is chill and it seems like a fun little party.
Suddenly the music stops and a man enters the stage. He’s smiling and he waves to the crowd. The crowd goes wild. Everyone but six of us. Six of us are wondering why these folks are so hyped. Obviously we’re new to the scene. I look over at him and he smirks. I whisper what’s going on? He points and says “just wait for it.” So I wait . The announcer speaks ” are you ready to play?”
Play? Play what? The lights go out and the spot lights shine. Six of them. One on me and five more on the rest of us newbies. Uh. What’s going on? Bewildered I look for him. He’s gone. Surprise surprise.
Let the game begin.
