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. It is the only form of motivation that will last a lifetime. It’s is the only form I accept in my life because it is the purest.

I’m feeling myself

It would only make sense start this blog entry “correctly”, because we have never met before and you’ve decided that THIS entry is your first impression of me. Hello Reader! My name is Dai’Jona and I’m the girl who is slowly taking more and more time away from her blog. “I’m being super irresponsible/ unreliable.” Continue reading “I’m feeling myself”

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.

To the ladies who became business women, scientist and inventors, 

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.

I Exposed Myself.

Week Ending: March 19,  2017. 

“Life isn’t always easy, but the journey you take allows you to become who you are meant to be. Life is also far too short to not appreciate every single aspect of it. The best and happiest moments of your life often occur when you realize that even the smallest things matter. They sometimes hold the most value.”

 Grow with me.

Her Man Took Me out for Lunch

Week Ending: March 11, 2017

Sunday was an interesting day because at the last moments of my Saturday night, I realized that I would be waking up early to come in for a shift I never realized I had. Life’s great! You think you may need rest, but you may be in the need of your next project in life.

Doubt

Doubt.

~the feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction. fear; to be afraid of.

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?
