Happy New Year

May this year bring you happiness, success, and blessings. Today is a great start to work towards achieving your goals, following dreams and overcoming obstacles. Surround yourself with people who share the same desires as you, who are just as ambitious as you, who wants to see you grow, who shares the same conversation as you and people who will not hesitate to tell you are slacking.

Stop hanging around people who cannot lift you up when you are down and people who do not have aspiration in life because their energy will rub off on you. Understanding that, you are the driver of your own life. You are the only one who can steer the wheel to take you where you need to be and want to be in life, no one else. No one will believe in you more than the way you believe in yourself. Once you figure that out, the goals you set to accomplish will become endless. This year is a powerful year for those who are up and coming. This is your year to prosper!!! It’s your time to shine.

70’s theme Birthday Event


    My friend Lyn decided for her birthday, she wanted all of her friends to dress up in 70’s attire and go skating! At first, we all sucked our teeth and complained.  However, we all managed to pull the theme off and had a great time doing it. We went to Hot Skates rink in Long Island, I felt like I was in the movie roll bounce lol 

Here’s a mini recap of Lyn’s 70’s theme birthday event!

In order to BLOSSOM

In order to Blossom,  you have to be willing to step outside your comfort zone. You have to be willing to take accountability for your actions and learn from them; you have to be willing to change your way of living, the people you surround yourself with, the way you handle situations but most importantly you have to change the way you think. Your mind controls everything, it’s creates your aura, it creates your energy, and it processes your thoughts and creates your mood. I hear people say “positive vibes only”, but in order to attract positive vibes, positive energy and receive an abundance of blessings, you have to manifest “positivity” into your mind!

Being able to blossom, isn’t  something that happens overnight, it comes with the growth process, it takes years to become the person you are destined to be, some people blossom quicker than others, and others take longer because they do not know where to start or know how to change bad habits. Your current or past circumstances can either make you or break you!

Everyone is not built the same, so you can not compare yourself to someone who’s the same age as you, and who’s probably further than you in life. Many times we will think….

” what is she or he doing, that I am not doing?”

“We are the same age, but she or he is doing better than me?”

“What am I not doing?”

“Oh I am so sick of working here, why am I not in my career?”

Other 20, 25, 30 years old my age are doing this and that!”

We are constantly comparing ourselves to others, comparing & questioning our growth process, wondering why we haven’t Blossomed yet. We never think, oh maybe Their circumstances shaped them to go harder, maybe we are on two different paths, we are on two different journeys. For instance: when he or she was 21 years of age, he or she was working their business plan, planning their futures, while you were being lazy, too busy having fun, out shaking your ass, turning up, chasing men/women, just living in the moment or indecisive about career opportunities. Who knows!!! But Everyone has different motives, intentions, and purposes.

Understanding, your time to Blossom starts the first day you decide to make a change in your life, from that moment you will begin to Blossom on to the person you were born to be!

In order to grow, you have to make a change!

Daily Prompt:Blossom

Be better, Not Bitter


Bitterness gets you nowhere; once you turn in to a bitter person, you’ll slowly start to self-destruct, killing yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. Bitterness turns in to misery and what person you know want to associate themselves with a Miserable person? That’s just toxic energy floating around your aura and who wants to be around a toxic person? Understanding that, who you are around, is who you will become. No one has time to dwell on negativity. When you focus on the negativity; you stop seeing the positive message from the lessons. The situations you’ve been in or is currently in is teaching you a lesson. One, who grows from being bitter lives a better life.

Heal yourself, work on bettering yourself and be a better you!!!

There are people alive who are dead on the inside from being bitter. You are not fully living if you are stuck on negativity. Everything we face daily is a part of life, the beauty of life is facing every rough, tough, bad, good, easy, hard, happiness, sad, painful, hurtful, joy experiences and being able to look back those moments and say ‘wow I didn’t think I would have ever made it through this moment in life’ or look back and being proud of every obstacle you over came, just simply Realizing that you are stronger than you thought you were. By being bitter, you are only hurting yourself and stopping your growth.


Daily Prompt :Bitter

Today’s Message, Too many broken people 

There are too many broken people in this world you see it all over social media, people are talking about disloyal people, they are saying fuck friends, family, hater, enemies. It’s like too many of you are walking around with this resentment towards whoever and you are wondering why things are not working for you because you are walking around with this hatred, walking around with this pain, walking around with this hurt, that you feel as if you need to carry.  

    Why do feel as if you have to carry someone else’s baggage?

When someone does something to you that’s their baggage.

Why do you have to hold on to it? Why must you let them rent space in your mind, to think about all the negative things he/she has caused.

No one is perfect, we all make mistakes and we all have to start somewhere. You are only defeating yourself when you let fear hinder your full potential. Recognize your fears, Mark them and then CONQUER them. Nothing happens overnight, everything takes time. All it takes is a first step!!

Murmuration Of Birds: Two Biggest Fears!


Whenever I am underneath a MURMURATION of Birds, I become very nervous, Hoping that none of them poop on me.

Whenever I am underneath  a MURMURATION of Birds with open food, I become a little scared, Thinking one bird would notice the food in my hand from a far, Turn around and aim towards me while the rest follows.

The thought of being chewed up, Attacked or Surrounded by Birds gives me the creeps, Especially in New York City , The birds are very tough and not friendly, They do not care, They are not afraid and They are aggressive, A MURMURATION of Birds in NYC has no problem flying so low almost knocking you upside your head,  Try to take your food, NO NO NO…..I do not want any problems with them!!

I do not like to see, Be underneath or Around a MURMURATION of Birds it really freaks me out!

 Breaking life “Patterns”

Breaking PATTERNS are very difficult, As you get older, You have to learn how to change the way you think, The way you present yourself and the way you handle situations. In order to do so, It requires you to break current life PATTERNS that you are 1)Comfortable with, 2) Use to and 3) live for.

PATTERNS are habits people adapt to over time, We are not born with them, We learn them, It could be learned from Society, Environments, Lifestyle, People you associate yourself with, The places you hang out at, The person you date, Family, School, past life experiences or situations etc. These PATTERNS you create are very easy to transition into but so hard to transition out of. But all PATTERNS of life are changeable, You just have to be willing to take the effort.

Anything is possible to change, When it comes to Self-Elevation.
