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 people are doing the same and I just have to be patient… I dream about money coming out of “nowhere”, meeting a generous billionaire who wants to facilitate someone else’s life: mine! All I want is a house, my own house – two stories with a … Continue 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 we relate to. We automatically side their way – the one we feel safest. Two: conditioning. In order to survive, humans instinctively form groups and rely on patterns to know what’s safe or not; we follow the rules so we keep within the group. Unfortunately, these … Continue reading On Doing What’s Right

#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 With diligence – to prevent Impetus to propels us so Fast & Furiously As our brightness will challenge Black Holes – And more. #Momentum ©️ Daphne Mia Essiet, 2018 Continue 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 I dragged us that long Pretended I was ok Pretending we were ok But in some twisted ways I thought we’d come around. Wait. Who am I fooling? I stuck around cause it was easier than to face the collateral damages Wasted our time out of … Continue 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 tolerate a 20-80 ratio, but too much rambling usually bruises my aura and hurts my soul… Interestingly enough, for a long time, I was unable to pinpoint the reasons why I’d find some people so enticing and others bland. For a long time, I was incapable … Continue 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 feel kinda inadequate around, #AtTime – you know… But, aren’t flaws what makes us who we are, what differentiates ourselves, what makes us interestingly unique? Right? right… So how come, if I’m aware of all those blessings, my Blessings, do I feel that way, #AtTime? I … Continue 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 who will appreciate them the way they deserve to be. I long to be aware. Aware of Reality Fully aware of the Love I’ve been the recipient all along. That Love that has been kept away from my heart by the fear of being rejected. Everyday, … Continue 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, spirit and senses, again, for their attention span is inversely proportional to your alertness. Nudge… #StraighForwardNess is Always the best policy in the matter of the heart. Of course the delivery must be Impeccable as it is what sets the tone (usually) for what’s to … 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 you are stuck, in a sense… not physically, but spiritually, which is never a good thing. It’s certainly temporary (at least let’s hope), and you need to make some adjustments. That’s also when *Friends* start moving differently around you cause your status changed. Some disappear cause … Continue 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, there is the Lust and there is the Love… and for majority of my adult life I somehow misconceived their respective meanings as well as mishandled their applications. As these two ever-overlapping “concepts” wildly encompass a range of compelling feelings, and because they (may) relate … 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. You whispered *that someone* will kiss the ground I walk on, hold my hand and rub my feet. #Gladly. You raised the bar so high I’m afraid to look up. You raised the bar so high, I’m afraid to look down. What was easy became complicated; … Continue 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? From Now On… Anything can happen… Although it takes the back seat I’m eager to know more For what matter is To let it out – to let it known – to let it lived It’s hard to eloquently share my inner thoughts, Even if many times Simplicity … 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… or rather left alone. I smile but I catch the subtleties of life more efficiently than you’d ever know. But you’d never know. Well I guess, now you know… #FYI ©️ Daphne Mia Essiet, 2015 Continue reading #FYI

#FromNowOn

It’s interesting how one simple action can have phenomenal traction; how one silly little thing can affect one’s heart(s). #FromNowOn: Let’s not underestimate our power and how Well (or not so well) we fit into our surroundings: how fast the planet turns and how its moon revolution pulls and pushes the seas and all water-based bodies. Let’s not underestimate how small entities such as hormones regent our behaviors and our functionality. Let’s not underestimate the strength of our thoughts and the potential of our soul to connect with one another, even in great distances. Ironically, today – I feel so … Continue reading #FromNowOn

#TheMessenger

“The Universe does not make any mistakes; She has been doing this ish* for a while now and it does not matter what you think you really want; I know you really, really want it, and it seems like this is IT – but you are confused; what you want is irrelevant because as the caring and loving entity she is, she will only give you what you need.” I did say that… and although I sometimes have my doubts, mainly driven by my insecurities, I BELIEVE in it. I BELIEVE in HER. The summer is not over, yet I … Continue reading #TheMessenger
