Your word is your Bond

If it’s one thing that irks me, it’s someone that doesn’t live up to their word. People say things in the heat of the moment, make promises that they know they will not keep, and just talk to talk. So, how do we handle this?

First off, we have to lead by example. You can’t complain about others if you don’t apply the same principles. Many people want so much but don’t put in half of the work. If you know you can’t do something, do not commit to it. Be honest within yourself and to others.

Second, try not to have high expectations, but remain hopeful. I realized that the more expectations that I have with someone, sometimes, I was highly disappointed. I believed every word and promise. I guess it was naive of me to do that because I know that no one is perfect. I always kept that sense of hope that if I did my best to uphold my word that others would do the same for me. Selected individuals DID indeed live up to their word which in return forced me to do better also.

Friends, do you experience this also? Have expectations of others and get let down? Or have you made broken promises? If so, what did you do to handle it better? Let me know below!

Thanks for reading!

Ain’t I a Lady?

Let me start by writing: this is NOT a man bashing post or a holier than Thou Sermon but simply a reality.

I’m a proud black woman. I consider myself Feminine and classy. Over the years, I notice that many generations have this idea of what a lady should be and her roles. We have come far from the beginning of time. Even though, I consider myself “traditional with an old soul”, I still can’t get with the Nonsense that continues to happen to women.

In the news, it’s so many sexual attacks or harassment scandals that are coming to the light. There are so many hashtags of “me too”, which I was included in. Its 2017, and I have to constantly worry about my clothing because people are rude or can’t keep their hands to themselves. Women are still in physical, emotional and verbal abusive relationships with the “no way out” mentality. Many are treated as a possession only.

So tell me Friends… if we are suppose to be soft-spoken, nurturing, forgiving , open-minded, etc., who is fighting for us? Many can answer: significant others, family members, male friends but not all have that. Some of the same people that want us to conduct ourselves like ladies at all the times, are the same ones degrading and abusing. Those people include fellow Women as well.

What are your thoughts friends?

Slow like the turtle

Sometimes we have our heart set on Tasks that we want to happen quickly… so what usually is the end result? Disappointment, Frustration, and Doubt just to name a few.

The saying also goes: “anything worth having is worth fighting for”. Friends we have to continue to fight. No giving up, no giving in! Stay on track, you will cross that finish line! Have Faith, you can do it!

It’s another chapter 

Hi, great people,
 Trust me, I know all about pain, heartache, disappointment and feeling low. The truth is, it can get better. Try your best to not stay in the whole that life has thrown you in. Even if you dig yourself into that whole, you can definitely dig yourself out. 
Ways to get out of the hole

  1. Bring positivity into your life.
  2.  Join a support group. 
  3. Keep a journal.
  4. Get counseling. 
  5. Last but not least, prayer and meditation.

The things listed above can help. I hope and pray that what you are dealing with can be seen as just another chapter not as the final chapter. You got this!!

Love,
Nicole Cherise ❤️
