Self-Motivation

Self-Motivation is defined as,”finding a reason and strength to complete a task, even when challenging, without giving up or needing another to encourage them.”

Not only should an individual require motivation from others, but from themselves. Self-motivation increases confidence and knowledge. Self-motivation should keep you going from day-to-day.

Carry gold

You are created, and then recreated.

A woman, who was made by a rib.

She was founded by the support of the man.

The moment she took her first breath, she was special.

God favored her, shaped her in his image.

She bore children, and raised her family.

She taught her daughter to be fierce.

She was the true backbone of her family.

She redefined strength when her hips cracked, she tore and she birthed a child.

She names her son after the father, but she is his first bond.

She remained hungry many nights, but her children knew a good childhood.

She worked while the city was at rest.

She never complained and always thanked God.

She had a daughter, and then another.

She taught them how to love.

Her ancestors picked cotton and shared land.

Her grandfather moved his family North for better life in 1973.

He started his “new life” with two children, a wife and $20.

She was raised in the North and 26 years later, gave birth to me.

I carry her strength.

Everything she touches becomes gold.

You Matter To Me.

Thank you for teaching me this is a woman’s world.

To the African Americans who were beaten, whipped and even killed, 

Thank you for fighting for my future & inspiring me to make my life worth it.

To the protestors who stopped traffic and simply held their signs,

Thank you for teaching me violence isn’t the only solution to injustice.

You Matter To Me.

Renamed, Official look

It swallows you whole, spits you out and leaves you confused.

Was I consumed, used or just playing naive? 

Do you believe in love at first sight? 

How long does it take two people to fall in-love?

Where are the rules to this part of my life?

Growing 🌱

There are several signs that will indicate the process of mental growth. As you mature, you realize you no longer react to certain situations the way you may have in the past. You also desire to share your energy with activities that will only give you the best outcomes. Certain things that once interested you no longer matter. You begin to take better care of yourself physically and mentally. Life is abundant; lavish and plentiful. The most beautiful thing one must know is that your mindset is a strong force. It tugs with the strings of your brain and heart. Having control of your own mindset allows you look at despair and find the beauty within it.

Is your glass half empty? Or is it half full?
