Always Be True

To You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

I’ve never been one to sugar coat anything and have actually been told I can be brutally honest sometimes yet for me I’d rather have someone tell me the outright truth even if I may not want to hear it then to sugar coat or patronize me πŸ™„

Well…

Yesterday I got a tad hard on the mom of the little boy I babysit…

ok not a tad… I did let her have it…

And afterwards I thought oops maybe that was a little harsh… And just as I went to apologize to her for being so harsh.. She came up to me, gave me a big hug and thanked me for basically calling her on her shit… Then proceeded to tell me that’s why she loves me so much 😱

It made me take a look at myself and actually made me smile because looking back I realized I’ve always been this way… It’s just who I am πŸ˜‰

We always tend to be harder on ourselves and although I’ve made bad choices throughout my life, have been hurt and have hurt, have trusted the wrong people, have given, been taken from and have made lots of mistakes…

The bottom line is….

I’m me…

And honestly I wouldn’t change a thing…πŸ™„

It’s taken me a long time to like…No to love who I am and to embrace my good and bad sides…To accept who I am and make changes when necessary… And I’m ok with who I am today 😁

I guess my point is…

Learn to love who you are and to embrace all that you are…

If there’s something you don’t like within yourself…

Change it…

Just remember YOU ARE YOU and don’t change for anyone.. except you..

Just always be true to YOU πŸ’—

Wake Up World

Stop The Nonsense

Hello World, 

This morning when I woke up I was going to post a different poem I wrote and right before I posted it I saw a post my beautiful friend Christi posted on instagram about children and how we are taught hate and racism and it hit me hard… 😒 cause it’s so true 😒😒…

Growing up in NYC I was surrounded by diversity and different cultures from all over the world and was raised to accept everyone for WHO they are.. not WHAT they did for a living, not WHERE they were from, not what RELIGION they practiced or BELIEVED in and not what COLOR their skin was! 

I was raised to BE ME & BE KIND TO ALL..To EMBRACE and LEARN from other cultures, not to FEAR them or DISLIKE them for being different and I raised my children the same way!!! Yet I truly feel our world is going backwards not forwards and it truly saddens my heart!  πŸ˜’πŸ’”πŸ˜’

Does it really matter where someone is from???… NO…. Does it really matter what someone does for a living as long as they aren’t stealing or harming another human being???… NO…. Does it really matter what color a person is???… NO… because if you strip our skin we would all look alike!! And does it really matter what you believe in, whether it be God, Allah, The Universe or none???… NO NO NO!!!! 😑😑😑

Come on people snap out of it… Stop talking smack about others just because they aren’t like you or don’t believe in what you believe…. Stop telling lies because you are jealous or don’t understand or just don’t know… Stop putting people in categories… We all bleed the same color and If you don’t know ask… Learn… Research whatever but STOP all this hate and violence just because others don’t believe as you do.. that’s what makes our world special…… that’s what makes our world unique πŸŒπŸ’—πŸŒπŸ’—πŸŒŽπŸ’—

Moral of this story.. BE KIND.. BE HUMAN.. BE REAL & STOP THE NONSENSE…Hate breeds violence and if we continue at the rate we’re going our world will cease to be! Wake up world!!! BEFORE there is no world to wake up too! πŸ’—πŸŒπŸ’—πŸŒπŸ’—πŸŒŽπŸ’—

WE ARE ONE!! EMBRACE NOT HATE!!!

So don’t be afraid to show your emotions and how you truly feel… Love your life and be who you really are cause that’s showing that you are real!

Self-Doubt Is Killer Of Dreams

Losing Self-Confidence Is Too

Hello World,

It’s said that our worst enemy is ourselves.. That is very true… The only one that prevents you from reaching all goals and dreams is you.

Losing your self-confidence and doubting what you can do… Will stop you dead in your tracks and stop your dreams from coming true.

Throw away your doubts and fears they are only in your head… Do whatever it takes to believe yourself and then keep forging ahead!!!

Strength Comes From Within

Not From What You Can Do


Hello World,

We all face challenges every day that’s a part of life… Yet we can’t give up just because we hit a wall, we have to step back and figure a way to get over it.

Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from believing you can and knowing with all of you that you will surpass any challenge or problem you may face.

Don’t give up cause if you do you’ll never know what’s on the other side of that wall…

Be strong from within and believe that you can and your strength from within will knock down any wall you hit! Have a beautiful day my friends and don’t ever give up!!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ˜Š
