Love, Life, and Memories


Hi everyone...

It's been a whiLe since I have posted. 

I have pubLished my first book, "Love, Life, and Memories".  PLease spread the word to all of your friends and famiLy!!! FeeL free to purchase copies and give them away as Christmas gifts!!! : )  PLease support me!!! I am currentLy starting on my second book (this one is not a poetry book).  So be on the Lookout for that one in a few months!!!  You can purchase my book at this website:

Anywho...  It hurts me to know I can't prevent heartache and pain for those I Love.  I know I am not an oLd wise woman, however I do feeL I have wisdom from going through the different situations Life has thrown at me. Love is a beautifuL thing, however the heartache of a bad situation can cause some peopLe to fear ever being in Love again! My advice is to forgive the person and move on with your Life.  Don't aLLow them to have a hoLd over you to the point where you don't want to experience GOD's most precious gift!

Life happens, and there is nothing you can do about your past!!!! Your past shouLd be Looked at as a buiLding bLock to your future!  Use every positive and negative situation you have encountered to motivate you, guide you, and remind you of where you were, where you are, and where you want to go in Life!  GOD has a promise for you, and it is your responsibiLity to fuLfiLL your destiny!!!  Everything you have ever wanted and dreamed of is yours, pLus more!!!

Thinking about your past for too much time can be detrimentaL!  It is fine to reminisce over great memories, however, there is no need to hoLd on to the negative ones!  Let it go and Let GOD!!!

I hope everyone has a great day and week!!! It's Thursday, so the week is aLmost over!!!!!
Be safe, and be wise! Every decision and action has a consequence, so be prepared to deaL with them!!!

Love you aLL!!!

When do you say enough is enough??

Hi guys... Hope aLL is weLL...

When do you say enough is enough? Whether it be with a reLationship, or abuse, even with settLing...

Why settLe for anything in your Life?  GOD never wanted you to settLe for Less than what HE wants you to have, and that is definiteLy not settLing, but recovering everything HE has promised you.  If something or someone is not what you want in your Life, why waste your time?  Why feeL as though you couLd have better, if you aren't going to go out and Look or search for better, or better yet reLease yourseLf from your present situation to aLLow GOD to give you better???

I have never been abused, so I understand that I reaLLy can't say too much about it, however I have heard that when you are getting abused you feeL afraid of what may happen if you try to Leave, or you are afraid of being aLone or having no where to go.  May view on this sensitive subject is why stay where you are not appreciated.  I wouLd rather be homeLess than to go home everyday afraid for my Life!  I wouLd rather be happy and enjoy the simpLe things in Life than to never know what the outside worLd Looks Like due to the fear of going outside and peopLe noticing bruises.  Even with verbaL or mentaL abuse, why stay where the onLy thing you hear is negativity?  There is no way you can actuaLLy beLieve someone Loves you when aLL they do is put you down and never upLift you!  There is aLways a positive to every negative, but never aLLow your Life to be more negative than positive!

With reLationships there shouLd be a 50/50 agreement.  There shouLd be an equaL amount of affection, care, and attention given to your significant other.  There shouLd never be one spouse does more thatn the other in the reLationship.  When wiLL you get tired of not being treated Like the king or queen that you are?  When wiLL you reaLize GOD has so much more for you than you couLd even imagine??? Open your mind, heart, and souL to recieve aLL GOD has to offer and give you!

Don't cLose yourseLf up in a box! ExpLore pLaces you have never been.  Do things you have never done!  Open yourseLf up to things and you wiLL be surprised to the many wonderfuL and amazing things GOD has in store for you!!!!

When do you say enough is enough or when do you reaLize that what you have is not enough???  Don't Limit what you can have due to what others think... Or even what you yourseLf thinks... Know that there ismuch more out there for you to have, aLL you have to do is dream, have faith, beLieve and open yourseLf up to recieve any and everything pLus more that you have ever wanted!!!

Live, Laugh, Love!!!

HeLLo worLd....

Ladies wouLd you marry a man if your famiLy didn't approve??? WouLd Love conquer aLL in that situation??? Is Love powerfuL enough to ignore everything you've grown to know is right; respecting your famiLy and their wishes, not repLacing your famiLy with his famiLy, but combining the famiLies? Men the same goes for you... Love is supposed to be a joining of two, compromises must be made...  When you are with someone you shouLd Love them with your whole heart, yet never putting yourseLf and your emotions on the back burner.

from the movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin:
"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."
-St. Augustine

Love is a beautifuL thing...  It's most precious when two hearts have been joined together and they have LiteraLLy grown oLd together!  My grandparents got married when they were both stiLL in high schooL... They grew oLd together, took care of each other, and fuLfiLLed their vows of untiL death do us part...  If my grandmother was stiLL aLive they would ceLebrate their 57th anniversary this year... GOD granted them the opportuinity to ceLebrate their 50th anniversary... Just to know someone for 50 years is a Lot, but to be in a reLationship with someone for 50 pLus years is amazing to me!  I admire their courage, poise, and commitment towards each other.

There are a biLLion Love songs out from the beginning of music and continuing... I want to have the Love not onLy described in these songs, but a Love that can onLy be understood between myseLf and my souLmate... A Love with such an aura, everyone around us wiLL see how deepLy in Love we are and wiLL admire us, the same way I admire my grandparents...

Love is a beautifuL thing and I beLieve everyone deserves to feeL Loved, whether by their famiLy, a souLmate, or a chiLd.

On my Last post my mom commented and I Love the Last words she Left me... "ALways Live Like there is no tomorrow, Laugh out Loud reaL hard and as often as possibLe, and Love with an open heart."

I hope everyone has a great day and opens their hearts to Love someone or to aLLow someone to Love them!


*Thanks to my boss for catching an error in my first post.  insert the word "me" into this sentence "I appreciate every situation GOD has aLLowed to experience, whether it was a good or bad experience, I grew from it! "  Thanks Dr. VirgiL

My First Post...

HeLLo worLd... : )

This is my very first post and I want to start off by thanking my co-worker Marissa for heLping me come up with the name for my bLog...

My second note is a shout-out to my friend CoLette aka CoCo... I am so extremeLy bLessed to have a new friendship with you! Love you boo!!! Now go study for FunctionaL ; p

I am currentLy working on a poetry book titled "Love, Life, and Memories", so pLease support me when it becomes pubLished!!! : ) Thanks in advance!

So I grew up aLways going to church, but never really encountering GOD... Since I have been in Winston-SaLem I have definateLy grown mentaLLy, spirituaLLy, and emotionaLLy!  I appreciate every situation GOD has aLLowed to experience, whether it was a good or bad experience, I grew from it!  Every day wiLL not be the best day, but I wiLL appreciate it because I didn't have to wake up!  Moving on in Life is the onLy way to Live... There is no point in being iLL or hoLding a grudge against anyone or being upset about any situation, there is nothing you can do about it now so Let go and Let GOD!!!!  Forgive others and yourseLf! 

Growing up I was very active with dance, church, and cheerLeading... I have very few peopLe I wiLL caLL my actuaL friend. I'm just over the stage in Life where you caLL everyone you have cLasses with or share hobbies with as being my friend... There are ruLes about being a decent friend...

RuLe 1:  be honest and open with me

RuLe 2:  don't be a pretender, meaning you pretend to be my friend just to get the benefits of being my friend...

RuLe 3:  have my back in any situation, if I'm wrong Let me know, but support me (there is nothing worse than feeLing Like you have no one to support you)

RuLe 4:  understand a friendship is Like any reLationship... there must be a 50/50 commitment... you shouLd give or put as much into our friendship as I do, and expect the same out of me.  If I'm not putting forth my 50, Let  me know

RuLe 5:  I cannot read minds, and I cannot expect you to read my mind... Which goes back to ruLe 1, be honest and open... if something is bothering you in Life or that I have or haven't done, Let me know!

And those are my basic ruLes to being a decent friend! : ) appLy this to every "Friendship" you have!  If your friendship doesn't meet all of these criteria, in my eyes you may need to sit down with your "friend" and discuss the friendship or cut it and keep it moving!!!

Live Life to the fuLLest... Love every decision or mistake that you make... Learn from every choice you make or from every situation you are in

Thanks for reading my first post... I hope you continue to LiteraLLy read what's on my mind!

Have a great day!!!! : )
