Not All That Glitters Is Gold

I am not a fan of expensive jewelries or anything that glitters. Maybe because….I don’t like attention. I ‘d rather blend in with the crowd, not stood out or be loud or demand attention. I like everything plain and simple. Such is my life… Who wants all the glitters if it’s not real gold? We…

{Of Self Love & Grieving}

Experts say that we should let ourselves grieve. And that the best way to help others that are hurting or grieving is to acknowledge their pains and sadness. No need for exchange of words, but just to be there even in silence helps someone who is hurting or grieving more than telling them to “get…

The Journey Changes You

I started this post July 6 of this year. Then I started two more and quit. So now, I have three drafts that are waiting to get done. Some days, I would sit and try to write but then I would end up staring at the screen and feel like…dead inside – well not really, …

It’s All In The Details

We have had the privilege of visiting the Library of Congress last Saturday and the details from the outside of the building, all the way to the interior design, is just outstanding! Can you imagine how much work went into completing such meticulous designs? Which makes me wonder, how much work does God set aside…

Riding Through Life

Nothing is ever too late. I never learned how to bike. My brothers didn’t get their first bike until they were in high school. I tried learning. But then, I was told that biking can take away a girl’s virginity and you know how important that was back then? So I quit. That.. and my…

True Connections

Back when I first joined Facebook nine years ago (I think), I thought it was the best thing that ever happened since the internet. Imagine being able to connect to hundreds, even thousands of people and friends that you haven’t talked to or seen for years. Imagine being able to share photos with family within…

Women Empowering Women

“Us women, need to see our worth without the approval of anyone. Our worth is not measurable by the clothes we wear, the shape of our body, how beautiful we are or what others think of us. Know your worth and the rest of the world will.” If I asked you right now, how much…

Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

Be your own kind of beautiful… When I was younger, I worried a lot about what others thought of me. I got upset easily on their opinions, more so if it’s something that is not true, and yes something that I don’t agree with. It took me a whole forty-eight years to change that outlook…

Of Rains, Blooms and Sun{Rises}

“When it rains, it pours. Then comes the blooms. And the best part about it, after every storm, the sun rises. And so are you.” It’s been a soaking – rainy days here in the Carolinas the past few days. To say that it’s a welcome sight to see the sun shining again is an…

Forty Plus Eight

“Each birthday, I count not the years but the blessings given, lessons learned, tears and laughter in between and people who stayed within.” Eight days ago, I celebrated my birthday in solitude. It’s been two years now, I think, since I had my birthday set in private on a social media platform. This year, I…
