Giving Thanks: Why Being Grateful is Necessary All Year Long, Not Only on Thanksgiving

Until recently, I knew the holiday was important, but despite being acquainted with the codes and cues surrounding the festivities, I never fully understood its true significance and implications (even after moving to New York, being invited to a few “parties” and organizing my own “Friendsgiving”). For me, it came down to hanging with family and people you like, and of course: food.

If This Was Up To Me

Subscribe to my newsletter: http://bit.ly/gn If this was up to me, I’d spend my life in school. When I say “if this was up to me” I mean if I had the financial means to do so. I have been “visualizing it” and “calling it into existence” – probably not hard enough or too many peopleContinue reading “If This Was Up To Me”

On Doing What’s Right

Subscribe to my newsletter: http://bit.ly/gn Two people can do or react similarly for different reasons. Two people can do and react differently for the same reason. Read that again. It’s hard to tell which is which for many reasons. One: we project – we tend to empathize more with those who look like us or weContinue reading “On Doing What’s Right”

Even tho I may project My own fears and biases I am #blessed and fulfilled Regardless of how I feel Into my sometimes blurry lenses I Get pushed and pulled back Before my own eyes All I need is a shift A bit of perspective For my hopes and my dreams To ever become clearContinue reading “#Blessed”

#Momentum

Shit’s complicated- but here we are: making the best of it. Beating the odds Breaking records we never knew existed Yet, too often living with restraint Tipi toeing around fragile egos. Their subconsciously know that the Power sipping through our pores must meticulously get washed away by judgement & ever so slightly policed, err’day WithContinue reading “#Momentum”

#OnGrowing

Did we grew apart Or never were aligned? Were we ever asking the right questions? Attempting to ascertain causes For future references. I can’t afford emotionally taxing relationships no more and won’t subject myself to unnecessary burden I now value my time, health and soul too much to stretch anymore of it I regret IContinue reading “#OnGrowing”

#SmallTalk

In any capacity, the type of bonding(s) we are able to generate makes all the difference. From atoms to people, it undoubtedly dictates its architecture, in terms of aesthetics and functionality, hence the strength and length of any relationships. About #SmallTalk… I recently realized that I really- really – really despise it. I do tolerateContinue reading “#SmallTalk”

#AtTime

#AtTime, there is a definite disconnect between the person I know I am, and the way I feel about myself. Let me reiterate: I get insecure. #AtTime. But I am not completely sure why. Pragmatically, I have nothing to complain about, I guess… Of course there will always be a Better-Looking-Smarter-Tighter-Booty-More-Accomplished-Talented-Perfect-Skin-Perfect-Teeth-Perfect-Fro-Perfect-Diet-Goes-To-The-Gym-On-A-Regular-Basis-Drinks-One-Gallon-Of-Water-A-Day-Has-That-Flawless-Fashion-Sense-Eloquent-Just-Got-Her-PHD-Chick, ya know… you feelContinue reading “#AtTime”

#MergingIntoMyself

I long to be Free. Free from my fears. Free from the imaginary boundaries I inflicted mySelf. I long to be mySelf. The woman I’ve always meant to be. Phenomenal woman, that’s Me. The one who will own her flaws and recognize them as the most enticing part of who she is. The one whoContinue reading “#MergingIntoMyself”

#AboutStraightForwardness

I left room for warmth. Your Warmth. But you took too long to say what you meant, beat around the bush like a wild man, so randomness settled in… and settled down. Back to square one. The spot, (cozy, I might add), is taken for now and you will have to entertain… entertain my soul,Continue reading “#AboutStraightForwardness”

#LifeBitsFallingIntoPlace

Isn’t it interesting how life can change so drastically in the space of a few months? How one year you are planning for future tense with someone and the next year you are just here, starting *fresh* cause there is literally nothing left but old pictures and fading memories. You wonder what’s next cause youContinue reading “#LifeBitsFallingIntoPlace”

#OnLustAndLoveAndEverythingInBetween (part3)

In logic and probability theory, two propositions (or events) are mutually exclusive or disjoint if they cannot both be true (occur). Shall we treat Lust and Love as two distinct functions evolving in two separate systems? How both those states relate to Happiness? It sounds concurrently simple and complicated, hence the trickiness. In a nutshell,Continue reading “#OnLustAndLoveAndEverythingInBetween (part3)”

#InLimbo

The way you talked to me makes it hard. It makes it hard to get involved with someone. What used to be easy became complicated. You declared you did not expect a thing, but would give me the world… #IfILetYou. You affirmed someone will always love me. #Unconditionally. That it’s written all over me. YouContinue reading “#InLimbo”

#IfUAskMeTo

I’m oversharing ‘cause, In reality who knows if We’ll ever meet again? From Now on Anything can happen… Your next move is inconsequential For what matters is mine Your next move is relevant Only if it includes my heart Handled with dignity Care for reciprocity I’m over sharing ‘cause In reality who knows if We’ll ever speak again?Continue reading “#IfUAskMeTo”

#FYI

Amazingly enough, life happens again in the most interesting way possible. I matter; yet, I feel so insignificant sometimes. I matter; yet, I feel like silence carries its weight so heavily on my shoulder it makes me bend over. Uneasiness rips my soul into pieces and make me reconsider how things should be handled… orContinue reading “#FYI”
