Your Life Is A Reflection Of Your Choices

“We Live & Die With Our Choices”

Everything we have and don’t have in life is a reflection of our choices. Everything we are, Everywhere we go…Things we do and people we attract and habits we repeat are CHOICES. They are a reflection of the choices we make. I’ve realized when things don’t go as smoothly as I’d like I can get down on myself, upset or nonchalantly say “yeah that’s life” but Life gives us back what we put in. I cannot play the blame game. Neither can you.

So it is my mission to give more than I take, to love more than hate, to learn more than teach, to practice what I preach and sew seeds that I want to reap by building good habits.
To listen more than I talk, to walk that walk and be about my business and my family’s business because I am my Sistars and brothas keeper.
We all have a role to play so what new habits will you be building?
What old habits will we be destroying?
What talents and skills will we be feeding?
That is the life we will be leading, once the work is done we can ease on down the yellow brick road!
But Will we do the work?

Your habits become you,
You become your habits.

“Under Investigation” ??!?!!?

image

I rarely use the word *hate*….
Unless you hating
But as of late
Call me a hater
Cause there’s a term that causes me frustration
Been hearing it used loosely in every situation
So can you help me understand
What’s “under investigation”?
Who investigates the individuals doing the investigating?
Counter production if its internal station to station
How many guilty verdicts are the people still awaiting? Not even counting the low profile situations.
Not even counting the Trayvons and Emmit Till.s
I’m talking bout the ones getting gunned down eating a meal.
I’m talking bout traffic stops getting murdered at the wheel
I’m talking bout ya friend that was just walking down the hill
I’m talking bout ya hands is up and gettin murked still
So I’m really starting to hate the term
“Under investigation”
It seems as if instead of *under
They getting *over on the nation
It’s a massive disrespect slap in the face to all creation
But when it come to throwing niggas in jail, over trivial details,
seems as if they always come to quick deliberation
giving  20 year verdicts without any hesitation
Unbothered by broken homes and broken hearts and ruined lives behind these bars from the time these “niggers” facing
Where the proof at? Little dibble dabbles on discoveries
But on a video red handed these devils reap the luxuries
Of being
“Under investigation”
Under the umbrella of protection
What a disgusting reflection
of history repeating itself
Gang members doing time for drug & murder crimes
So all badges & guns should be on the shelf
How does a criminal investigate oneself?
How many verdicts are the people still awaiting?
How many conclusions came through regarding them boys in blue that got they wrist slapped and on paid vacations?
Distracted by entertainment and other non important situations
Hoping people forget by dragging it out and disrupting the demonstrations
Using militia force on people protesting for peace
Protesting for justice
2 things the law supposed to be
But unless I got it twisted look like opposition to me
Who is really
“Under investigation”?
Red rum in these streets from city to city
Red rum Red rum
We see who the killers are
Sticking out by they red thumbs
But I guess
We spose to believe and accept the okey doke
Like we dumb son.
Y’all ” under investigation”

The Coldest Winter Ever!

“One thing about Storms….. they may wreak havoc…but they come & they go”

Many of us are good with keeping up appearances. In a day and age of perfection, beauty, status, social media, advanced technology etc. The ability to fake the funk is easier than ever. Everything can be photo shopped, leased, nipped & tucked! Forget keeping up with the Jones’ everybody trying to keep up with the Kardashians! Ha!
Aaahhh…. the Luxury life.. Those who have it flaunt it, those who don’t, want it.
When are we going to get real? Really keep it 100. And respect when people do keep it 100.
No matter what is going on in your life just know you’re not alone. It is OK to fall off your high horse sometimes…..just saddle back up!
Its OK to be REAL and have flaws. Singers like Beyonce’ make songs about ” I woke up like this #flawless” is unrealistic. Yeah it sounds good but we all have flaws. Some of us just pay lots of money to correct the physical ones! But flaws are what makes each and every one of us unique.
It saddens me when some people experience a life altering event and they get so down on themselves and depressed, some even committing suicide because life is not going in their favor at the moment. That saddens me and is unfortunate because life is like weather. You have good days….. The sun is shining, it’s feeling good and you’re doing great feeling wonderful and those days may last a while. But just like you have those good days here comes the rain, the storm clouds, snow, hail, tornados, floods & earthquakes and those days may last a little while. No one likes to be in the midst of the storm, it’s unpleasant but as long as you can endure it, it will pass!
It’s always darkest before the dawn. But hang in there! This may be your coldest winter ever but stay hopeful and persevere because you will be ever grateful for your warmest summer ever!

There’s nothing wrong with expressing yourself and being real. We sometimes tend to share the great news with family, friends & social media and when things are sour we may keep a facade of being ok  when in actuality we may be going through something. Not everything is for social media. Some things may need privacy or professional help, but just keep going! Do not give up! Storms don’t last forever.

Love & Incarceration

We’re literally in this together!

When you have a significant other who is “locked up” it is not just a trial for them….. It’s also a trial for you.

It has been about two years and counting since my husband has been absent from home, and it hasn’t been a cake walk!
