Strut Your Stuff

Her heart was broken, after all he called off the Wedding Proposal. She thought they were fine. That they were Foreverโค๏ธ. “Why not?” She thought, reflecting back. They had dated over three years and he finally proposed three months ago and know called things off one week before the Wedding. What else could she have done? Besides attending to him like they were already married. She was totally devoted to him. Giving him every part of her being. Despite the rumors of his unfaithfulness, there was an emptiness, she ignored.

She even loved him more then herself. Did she even love herself? The excuses he made and lies didn’t alarm her or raise a question in her mind. Somehow she trained her mind, her emotions not to feel or react, but tune everything out. Her sweet Prince could do no wrong.

Wake up out of your sleep, snap out of the daze. He had you in a haze. It is as if you have be tranquilized.

You hear him in the other room making plans to meet up with someone else. Just because he is handsome and often gets mistaken for a Hollywood Star doesn’t give him a pass. Yet you have lowered your expectations.

Stand Up…

You are a Lady, a Beautiful Queen, you know what I mean. I know you feel hurt right now. Remember God, Still loves you and heard those whispered prayers.

Stand up dry your eyes and grab your dignity, your much stronger, then you think. No more rehearsing the past. Forgive him, free your mind, move on at last.

He may have ended the proposal, but you are “Strutting In The Grand Finale.”

God’s Grace and Mercy has seen you through, which allowed you to “Forgive,” releasing strongholds and soul ties.

Tend to yourself, you are worth more, embrace your singleness at last.

    What You Should Know About โ€˜We Will Not Be Silencedโ€™

    Brave & Reckless

    We Will Not Be Silenced: The Lived Experience of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Told Powerfully Through Poetry, Prose, Essay, and Art is the brainchild of Kindra M. Austin, Candice Louisa Daquin, Rachel Finch, and Christine E. Ray.ย  The four indie writers and survivors felt compelled to do something after the strongly triggering Kavanaugh Hearings.ย  We decided that we would advocate, educate, and resist through our art.

    We opened submissions for only two weeks to women and men around the world.ย  The response from writers and artists was overwhelming: the final anthology will include 166 pieces of writing and art from 94 contributors around the globe.ย  It also led to the birth of Sisters of Indigo Light, dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual harassment and sexual abuse survivors through creative expression and community.

    The four editors decided early on that this was a project about passion andโ€ฆ

    _______________________________

    Question:

    What is your preferred mode of transportation?

    My preferred mode of transportation is actually flying, if traveling long distance otherwise I enjoy road trips and sightseeing. A chauffeur service around the city would be quite exciting.

    Why didย youย startย blogging?

    I started journaling, writing, card making to my family and friends, when I was eight years old. My actual blogging started as a result of a response to a question on Twitter. I was touched about a story about a couch. The woman was so kind, she liked my comment and encouraged me to go WordPress. I setup initially and used it for my own personal journal until one day I accidentally pressed publish. Lol ๐Ÿ˜†

    Do your friends and family support you inย blogging ( or any other passion of yourโ€™s)?

    My biggest fan is my youngest daughter Maya, myDimples, who is a brilliant writer and storyteller. My best friend Z, reads everything. There are few who love getting them by email and we enjoy Spoken Word at the Library and WRAP.

    Which is your favoriteย flavor, in ice cream?

    My favorite ice cream is Buttered Pecan, a Texas favorite. That cold French Vanilla Churned rich homemade taste with pecans in every spoonful. Just delicious, Bluebell IceCream ๐Ÿฆ straight from the factory in Bluebell, Texas.

    What would be your dreamย job?

    The ideal Dream Job for me would be to actually

    Who is your favorite actor, or author ( if you donโ€™t watch movies)?

    Now, this question I found really hard since, I don’t watch television often. I would have to say Taraji P. Henson. The top movies “Karate Kid, Hidden Figures, Proud Mary, Acrimony, Ice Age (Ethel), and No Good Deed.

    Taraji P. Henson is homegrown from Washington, DC area. She is well educated, Graduate of Howard University, putting herself through college as a Single Mom. Taraji is an outstanding actress, writer and has host of other gifting.

    What do youย do first thing after waking up ( and not what you do in your bathroom, please)?

    After waking up I shout Good Morning to the Lord! I set my day with prayer, reading and meditation.

    Are you a morning person?

    Yes, I am a morning person. I enjoying singing and making up random songs.

    Whatย are your ambitions for the coming year?

    This coming year, there is much in store. I hope complete various writing projects. I will be Advocating in Richmond, Virginia in January.

    How do you thinkย the world is going to cope with environmental challenges?

    Environmental challenges are happening in the world everyday from one extreme to another. When we look at Global Warming in our climate and the unusual weather catastrophes that have happened which claimed lives, separating families. It called people to put their differences aside and unify for a common cause of Help.

    It is heart wrenching to read, watch and see the fire in Thousand Oaks, then to know that he land and the environment and it’s inhabitants are going up in smoke. People have lost homes, crops, clothing, their lifesavings of investment. Insurance is in place to offset it, if you were fortunate to have it. What happens when FEMA goes bankrupt, the Home and Rental insurance go belly up. Food ๐Ÿฅ˜ and water ๐Ÿ’ฆ become a scarce.

    The evacuations themselves then cause overpopulation to happen suddenly. Our highways, roads, schools, stores, are over crowded because the infrastructures were not apart or in place to host the sudden increase in people. This makes unemployment numbers jump. The cost of living sky rockets, making it less affordable for those who lower income to rent or buy which increases homelessness.

    What would be yourย ideal holiday vacation?ย 

    The ideal holiday vacation would definitely be to get out of this chilly cold weather and my first cruise ever to a beautiful Tropical ๐ŸŒด Paradise Island Resort with my girls. Whether it is the Caribbean, Bahamas, we would have a fabulous time during our seven day adventure.

    How many of Harry Potter movies you have watched and which one is your favoriteย ( or books, if you havenโ€™t seen any of the movies) ?

    I’m not the biggest Harry Potter Movie fan, so I’ve only seen one movie;drum role please “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”
