About a year ago I started designing posts with quotes on them that I called “Be You” posts. Above are a few of the quotes. The rest will be featured in my Portfolio page.

Washed Away

*THIS POST WAS STARTED ON WEDNESDAY MARCH 23, 2011*

As the rain, sleet, hale and snowflakes hit my windshield, I begin to think about all the different experiences I’ve been through, about all of the friendships  I’ve made and lost, about my experiences and my recent revelations. The main thought I had that evening was CHANGE….

We tend to want to hold on to people, friendships, relationships, material things, jobs……. We know they arent the best for us but because we dont have the courage to let go and move on we would remain quiet about it and be unhappy, knowing that we’re just making things worse.

A few people have told me that I’ve changed, some said for the good, some said otherwise, but I say for the Good,  I’m sorry but my mentality of life should not be the same from 10 years before. I will be 30 on my next birthday, i should not have the same thoughts and goals from when I was 19.

So while I drove around having one of my “thinking sessions” I’ve come to the realization that all of my doubts about changing my old ways of thinking, living, and loving, were being washed away. The people and places I used to associate myself  with were being washed away.

And GUESS WHAT…….. I dont miss any of it! <huge smile 🙂 >

That storm washed away everything I DIDNT need in my life and made way for a new season…….. WHAT ARE SOME THINGS IN YOUR LIFE THAT NEED TO BE WASHED AWAY?

Gotta Get Next To You

Love at first sight, nah I guess it was really lust
Too many eyes and ears to voice my feelings, not knowing who to trust
You were so fine, and smelled so good, huge plus
I gotta get next to you, oh yes, I must
I’m gonna make my move, no turning back from this,
All I really wish, is to be laced by those lips, With a juicy kiss…..
…….just what I expected, like dots we connected,
That kiss was bliss, forgot about our lives being so hectic
Hopefully we can turn this into more than just a side thing
A kiss turning into love, no longer a fling
But until then, I’ll just reminisce about our little time together
A short moment of passion, will remain in my mind forever…

This Race…..

Not up to par, hate this feeling of depression,
Constant thoughts repeat in my mind like an obsession.
WHAT SHOULD I DO? Decisions that need to be made,
Things that shouldn’t be a priority overload and explode my time like a grenade.
Gotta get to the “prize” at the end of this race,
But im letting obstacles I face, take place and slow down my chase.
I’ll make it to the finish line but I gotta stay focused on what really matters right now.
This side mess will only spread, ”stay focused B”, I tell myself, but then I think “How?”
But nevertheless I won’t stress and do what I gotta do,
Because I’ll be the one with the “prize” once this race is through…

Man In The Mirror

On Thursday I was driving home in my car listening to Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror”. While singing along with the chorus, I began thinking about a conversation I had with a friend earlier in the day and also a conversation with another friend last week. To sum up both of the discussions, they were about making changes and moving on to better themselves. I was proud to see that both of my friends were deciding to take control of the situations in their lives and pressing forward to do better.
I definitely can relate to their situations and was honored that they wanted my advice and encouragement. I shared my story of the past 12 months of my life and was able to give ensight on what happened when I began to take control of situations in my life. I spoke to them about how I didn’t give power to my fears but I had my faith overpower my fears.

With that being said, we can live our lives blaming everyone else for things that happen to us, but when will we stop and look at ourselves and say “what is it that I’m doing on my end  that just isnt right?” Though I’m not where I want to be in life right now and there are still some things that aren’t right but I do thank God that I’m not where I was mentally, spiritually, financially or emotionally 12 months ago. So if you want to make YOUR world a better place, take a look at YOURSELF and make YOUR change.

…………RIP Michael Jackson……

“I”m Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change”

My Music, My Life

Music has always been a part of my life. Growing up in a church where my grandfather was the founder and pastor, my aunts, cousins and sister were singers and my late father who played the organ, I had no choice but to embrace music.My father taught a lot of people how to play the keys like my older sisters and brothers. Unfortunately, he passed when I was five months old so never got to hear him play growing up. But how ironic is it that two of my good friends learned how to sing and play the keys from their late mentor, who was taught by my father, Small world, right?

I remember the first time I knew I had some singing skills…I was like nine, ten years old. I would run this same cassette tape – Voices “Yeah Yeah Yeah”. I knew I drove my brothers and sisters crazy! Lol, I even wrote a song called, “No,No,No”. That was the 1st of many songs, poetry and short stories that were to come.

It wasn’t until about 2 years later that I let my friends hear my skills. I was roller-skating with two of my good friends Tamika & Ta-Sheeba and we started singing “Weak” by SWV (Sisters With Voices). Ever since then it was has been nothing but music, music and music.

All throughout Junior High School and High School, I was a part of choirs,  singing groups, and plays. You name it, I’ve done it, including an audition video for Apollo Amateur Night with my friends in the 5th grade. (Real Love – Mary J.)

I was also in a gospel group that just recently disbanded. One of the songs we had (my fav- Total Praise), is attached to this entry. (I’m leading the chorus….) . Even though things didn’t go the way we wanted them to go in the group, it was still a part of my life and I actually still have a connection to the songs….

Though I don’t write songs like I used to, I still sing with my church’s choir, and 2 community choirs.  Music will always be a part of my life and when I have children I will definitely share my love for music with them and hopefully it will be a part of their lives too.

Bin Of Memories (Part 1)

While looking through my bin full of my old writing notebooks, I started looking though one of the books. I remember this book the most because it was 2001 and I just moved back from Virginia. I wasn’t quite sure what my next move would be, so I began writing my thoughts and other random things in this book.  I came across a poem I wrote about someone I was dating. To this day this person is a very close friend of mines. I don’t know why this poem stuck out the most when I was looking through the book but I’ve always liked it and so did most of my friends…..I think I got skills lol. So enjoy because this is one of many…..

Sweet Sensation

The way you look at me

The way you hold me

The way you whisper in my ear

The way you tell me how much you love me

The way you show me how much you care

The way we talk on the phone

The way we cuddle when you and I are alone

The way you make me feel

The way our love seems so unreal

The way you wrap your arms around my shoulders

The way I put my head on yours

The way you rub my body

The way I yearn for more

The way you invade my thoughts

The way I want for you to invade me

The way my inner thighs tingle

The way I want you physically

The way I dream about

The way it will be

The touch, the feel, the Sweet Sensation of you inside of me

The smell of your scent

The smell of mine

The smell of our scents together as they intertwine

Our moaning, our panting, our love making, so tender

Passion too good to be true

A dream I want to remember

I can’t wait for the day

That I get to experience you

The way I want to make it known

That I want this dream to come true
