never can say good bye
even after a year it still seems foreign to try
I remember being awakened from my sleep
to cries that you were now resting in peace
for a second I lost touch with reality
Could this really be true
but I soon gained more proof
the world had truly lost you
it’s hard living life with no more talks
no more shared books read
or inside jokes
I just knew we’d grow to be old folks
You were my sister, my friend and a spiritual sharpener
when your soul left
time seemed to stand still
it felt surreal
I was bereft
left fumbling to rationalize within my mind,
to accept this loss as a truth
There are days I’m great
and there’s days when simply I’m not
I know life is for living so I keep pushing I dare not stop
There is so much more I needed to share
so much more wisdom and encouragement I needed to hear
You were a sister-friend so near and dear to my heart.
I carry your memories forever with me may they never depart.
Continue to rest in power Sis💙

Don’t allow yourself to self-sabotage future relationships. You deserve the very best that life and love has to offer. You just have to be willing to see the blessings in the lesson.
Sometimes we have to kiss a few frogs in order to fully appreciate when we find our “One”. The frog isn’t a punishment, it’s a teachable moment. Sometimes they teach us patience and sometimes they teach us exactly what we don’t want in a mate.
Either way use the experience as a catalyst for growth. Experience is the best teacher, but sometimes it takes a whole lot of trial and error to come up with the winning combination.
Sometimes it’s hard to inspire when you feel as if you’re floundering at life and your pockets are not filling fast enough.
But then again, those moments of uncertainty that turn out alright are what leads to inspiring moments and testimonies.
It’s easy to give up. To say, well it must not be my time since dreams aren’t aligning with finances.
Finances, or shall I say, the lack thereof, is a major stressor. Businesses and marriages have come to destruction over it.
But we can’t lose sight that sometimes riches aren’t monetary and sometimes blessings can’t be measured.
Peace of mind and joy of heart are priceless. Doing something that fulfills you is invaluable to your self-worth, and shouldn’t be quantified on the basis of a dollar.
That budget is meant to discipline you not confine or define your limits.
Sometimes you have to acknowledge that what you want is surpassing what you need.
We have to place things in perspective and understand that sometimes the only thing standing in your way of pursuing your dreams is being greedy for gain and forgetting to be thankful for more than enough.
Sometimes we have to be reminded that your dreams may be the life saving force someone else has been waiting for.
That book, that business, that apparel line may be the boost someone needs to be reminded that they too can realize their dreams.
That it’s never too late to pursue your purpose.
Don’t give up, you’re richer than you realize and more powerful than you know!
What happens when you are lovers and friends
When the loveship must come to an abrupt end
Sometimes you never get to expound on the relationship
due to extraneous life induced situationships
It’s so hard to remove a true love from your head and heart
When that’s where all the loving memories start
When you’ve been in each other lives so long there is a connection
and intertwining of families
Soul connections made when in each others hearts and arms we laid
But life brings about change and to the heart change isn’t always fair
And so away from one another we must now tear
in order to build upon foundations laid with others
and pray that one day we can love someone else
with the same soulful passion with which we loved one another.
You ever had someone speak to your very soul,
they looked into your eyes and your very thoughts they’d know?
With just a mention of their name they send your heart a flutter,
and they make you feel inspired but at the same time so nervous you stutter?
Someone who stimulates your mind,
taking intelligent and sexy to a whole different level and time,
but the sad part about it, it’s not the right time
For me to be yours and for you to be mine
and inherently you know
No matter how perfectly the stars seemed to align
you have to put off this soul connection
until the next lifetime.
