When you’re struggling within yourself…
It’s like being trapped in a tall glass.
You scream, hoping you’ll be heard .
You stand there with your arms up… waiting for someone to pull you out
……but no one comes, you are trapped.
Stuck standing there; mouth wide open, arms up, screaming at the top of your lungs “HELP!!!“
Just you and yourself.
Now, you’re tired and your energy is gone. You slowly rot.
……because no one came???
But all the while… you, you were there.
When you lose yourself…
When you become unsure of yourself… When you become unsure of the company you keep…
It’s time… it’s time for solitude. Recapture yourself. You have to disconnect from the external noises… and PLUG YOURSELF INTO YOURSELF!!
That means it’s time to step away from the drugs, it’s time to step away from social media… and sometimes that includes family… sometimes that includes friends.
We have to nourish our mind, body, and soul… mind you the saying isn’t just “body”… it’s “MIND, BODY, AND SOUL”…
no one says it’ll be easy because it’s not… especially in our black community. We need better, we deserve better, the change starts from within yourself…
I am tired of seeing us run this cycle where we exclude our mental/emotional well being…
As a woman, you’re expected to carry everyone’s shit and not complain… God forbid if you cry about.
Why is that okay? Who says it’s okay?
Ladies, you are invincible. You are wonderful. Your looks do not define you. Your job does not define you. Your marital status does not define. Your kids do not define you. Your wealth does not define you. Your lack of does not define you.
YOU DEFINE YOU. You have the power to choose who you are. You can’t choose how a person views you. But you can choose who you are and what you represent…
So that leaves the question who are you? And who aren’t you? Who will you become… who won’t you become? ❤
Sometimes you have to step away from the things you think you need/want, in order to receive the blessing you actually need.
Nature tells no lies. Clear skies making way for sun rays.
But oh how I miss the clouds.
Curious squirrels and nesting birds.
Trees that stretch, with leaves that glow.
Today, I just want to tell self-doubt to kiss my @#*…
…So, wait am I telling myse…. NEVERMIND, jajajajajaja..
LOL, thoughts that keep telling me I can’t do something before I even try!
Thoughts that tell me why I shouldn’t try out my ideas.
The fear that lives inside of my own mind…
Today you can kiss my @#*!
I’m putting my best foot foward and rocking all the way.
I am going to try these ideas in my head. I’m gonna put them forth and risk it.
Either I will succed or either I will fail… but either way I have so much to gain ❤
Who would have guessed…
It almost feels like I’m watching a movie, and as I stop and replay I can’t help but be curious.
Was this your intention?
To clothe yourself in sweet nectar…
To tempt me like a wild, honey bee?
Did you intend to deceive me?….
How long have you been writing these lies? They taste so sweet on your tongue.
I bet it was like stealing candy from a baby.
