Make your way in the world they said. I can not live life for you. I know that! Your destination is closer than you thought, open your eyes and look beyond the end of your nose. Say you’ll change so I can have something to smile about again. Tell me that you will stand on your own and survive in this world of chaos with a happy ending.
Stand up, change from the path you have taken because smiles and hugs await you away from the crowd. Peace craves for you.
“Everyone is doing it!”
I know. But your footsteps are different from the thousands, it only takes one step in the right way, but say you’ll change.
Its never too late to learn and grow. Last year was for the most part rough and am sure some of you share my sentiments as well. I struggled with life, with surviving, with keeping my sanity all with a smile. Some I know thought I was either crazy or on the highway to it. In it all, I smiled because I had to be strong. I had to be BOLD and COURAGEOUS to make moves I never thought would be possible, at least at that time and in my mental state. I wanted to get back to my blog so much because I wanted to keep your interest in my words fresh… life happened.
I persevered through it all and BOOM am proud of me! Proud of my struggles and tears. I turned 32 this month, with so much excitement, new goals that are undoubtedly achievable to be challenged.
Challenge yourself to do new things, push down every obstacle that seems to be saying you CAN NOT DO IT. But most importantly, be proud of your journey and accomplishments. You’ve come a long way.

Learning to exhale, I hold my breathe still, holding on to the ” what ifs” of life
thinking of the ” should haves” of my expectations. Holding on to the clouds
Am guilty, guilty for not letting go of empty dreams and promises of a happy ending. Gripping for straws at my wits’ end.
Let go of things, persons that no longer brings you peace. Many times we hold on to the thoughts of a happy ending in whatever it may be. We Hold on to friendships that is clearly not encouraging and building us up all in the name of ” I’ve known him/her for many years” so what? Sometimes, those who we have only known for months are the rare gems we need in our lives.
Do not get carried away by the shininess of damaging situations/friendships/relationships. Inner peace is greater than short lived smiles.
I sang today.
I sang to myself when the doors were closed.
My heart shouted the lines of that song, you know that one that brings a smile to your face when it comes on the radio?
…. Baby don’t worry… about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright….
I moved my body and tapped my heels until I made myself believe its lyrics.
Reality sank into me and I knew that everything will be alright.
Its 9 am and the customers started pouring in, yet that silly grin remained on my face because my heart was happy and I knew it would be a beautiful June 18.
Fighting for words yet my lips are sealed. As I screamed through the silence of the night. It’s So hard to have so much to say, but unable to say them.
It’s morning again and am still here lost in the multitude of unspoken lyrics. Games of the mind populates. Pressured to ease the sounds of my slient thought…. I write and that was all she wrote.
Colored canvas, restless hands moving swiftly as it tattooed pictures of the mind. Why does the shadow dance in the twilight? Oh it’s hard to believe that the mind colors life brightly while many suffer in silence but smiles at the dawning of a new day.
Minds opened, doors closes yet we strive to barge into the unknown of life with salient laughter and glossy eyes.

Hi Guys, I have never really said thank you for following me and for reading my writings. I’d like to be more committed than I am now you know, to keep your interest popping 🙂 I enjoy reading from you all as well.
I’ve been thinking of friendships lately. We all have friends, but do we really understand what it means to be a friend? it is difficult for me to believe that one person can have 20 (twenty) committed friends. Not fair weather or sunny day friends, but ones that are genuinely concerned and cares about your well-being. My circle has always and will always be small because it is very important to be accountable to those you let into your life to share your space and attention with.
Just a thought guys.
Have a blessed Sunday y’all
