Better>Bitter

The past few weeks, I’ve observed negativity amongst people. I wasn’t involved but if I were, I’d tell the individuals to be BETTER not BITTER.

I’ve come to a realization that getting Bitter or getting “even” with folks requires so much energy. If I’m going to use any energy aka spoons (spoonies standup!), it needs to be serving a real purpose not for meaningless drama. Life is short, we all KNOW this but still continue to waste time.

If there is anything that I can leave with you all today it is to : BE BETTER because we all KNOW better.

How do We See Ourselves?

Hi Friends!

I was reading from the Bible app and this was a screenshot of one of the devotionals. This is a struggle for myself and I’m sure for many of you reading. The issue of How we see ourselves vs how God(or your spiritual self) sees us.

I’ve created this tape of negative thoughts and it is hard to erase. No one in particular put it there but it does exist. I believe in order for us gain Peace in our lives, we have to change our cognitions and behaviors.

We can achieve this goal by performing daily affirmations, prayer, and meditation. Will it be easy? No. However, anything worth having will require hard work and dedication.

Why not experience The joys of life besides the unfortunate struggle? Why should we only indulge in self pity and the “woe it’s me” attitude? Instead, make a Decision to want more and SERVE more. Things will get better for us friends, we just need the time to believe it. 😊

Thanks for reading and sharing!

My little earthly Angel SVJ

Hi friends! How’s it going? Things on my end are ok. Ups and downs just like everyone else. I’m still a work in progress so bare with me 💁🏾‍♀️

Today, I’m home with my little guy because he’s on winter recess from school. I just had one of my many moments and he smiles and hand me one of my journals with a pen.

I sat there in amazement. I felt, at that moment, SVJ was delivering a message from God. He saw me weeping about life after tragedy. He knows my heart and what’s been weighing heavy on my mind, and soul.

Life after tragedy has been difficult. A part of me left when my loved ones went to be with the Lord. However, I know they would want me to live. In fact, as a child, my father always said, “Baby, when I go, you have to go on because Life goes on”. I hated those conversations then and still have a tough time handling it now.

Thank you SVJ for being my earthly Angel to deliver this message. I can promise God, my family, friends and myself that I won’t give up or give in. This will take time, but Living in search for Peace is what I’m going to do!

Thanks for reading friends!!

Just take a moment

We have to take a moment to just breathe and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. As I stare out the window and see the leaves fall from the trees, I suddenly had a peaceful moment. 

I hope everyone enjoyed their thanksgiving day and time spent with those who matter. Just remember that there are many who wish to have half of what you have.

I know it’s Ugly but I can still find beauty

Every day, we are given daily reminders of how cruel and ugly things of this world are. When I was a child, my parents shielded from some things and let me be a child. Now, with the advancement of our youth, it’s hard to NOT explain to them the cruelness that awaits them. I’m saddened that I have to express to my son that to some people he will be considered a menace, some may be jealous, friends will stab you in the back, employment will expect you to work extra hard against your counterparts, and I can go on. However, I can’t focus only on the ugliness. There IS beauty.

Beauty is in the eye of a baby, who is precious and pure. The laughter of children on a playground that gives so much joy to an adult heart. The genuine love and support from your loved ones. The butterfly feeling you get from your significant other. The feeling of inner peace when you pray or meditate in your calm place. That feeling of goodness after helping those who are less fortunate. 
The world isn’t perfect, especially the people living in it. We have to decide how we choose to live. Do we want to concentrate only on the ugly? Or could we make things less tainted and paint a better picture? Something to seriously think about, especially now.
Thanks for reading!

Be selective 


For some, having the last word is important and for others, having the last laugh is the best. 

Like most things in life, it’s important to choose your battles to fight. Just because some may not be agreeable to you doesn’t mean you have to open your mouth. I also believe that having peace in your life is good for your well being. 

Hang in there friends. Stay strong. Relief is on the way.
