Time is Yours Though

Her favorite rapper and yours too sent her this song before 9am

She understood every word

She still chucked him the deuce 

Because not enough time wasn’t a real excuse 

She blessed his dreams and prayed for his team

She could not live on the outskirts of his time no matter his intention 

So in love she let him go 

Those were his seeds to sow

Only in the present could love grow

Maybe in due time they would realign 

Maybe 

She understood every word

 

Gratitude might fix that Attitude

”You can kick rocks wit’ all them negative thots/thoughts.”

Say the above sentence like an old southern lady.

*Laughs

Gratitude is everything.

What are you grateful for today?

Since the beginning of the year I have been writing seven things that I am grateful for each day. Being grateful is a part of my self-care routine and helps me to maintain a positive attitude.

Below is my gratitude list for today and a link to Auntie O’s thoughts on gratitude.

  1. the ladies in my Barre class
  2. camo leggings
  3. My homie who jammed with me to The Carters – Nice this morning from his car (I like it loud sometimes.)
  4. Baby oil
  5. the ability to hear
  6. Vultures (the underrated clean up crew of nature)
  7. another chance to be here on Earth in this form

Selfish

Attempting to shelf me, only interested in my selfie

Selfish selfish 

Your surface level attraction not enough for my satisfaction

“You a selfish ass woman”

You damn right

Not built to make you a believer

I am no Mrs. Clever and this ain’t Leave it to Beaver

Mister – fix it your damn self

My energy is heaven sent and better spent on these babies

I’m teaching them to be selfish 

To say no

To never let a lame impede their flow

To know their truth and not let genetics or kinetics get in the way of their destiny

Infinite evolution in motion

Energetic billionaire with millions of minutes 

Are you just mad cause I won’t spend them on you?

“You a selfish ass woman”

Yup and you can catch these hands just like that fear

Self-defense 


Writer’s Note: Been boppin’ to Selfish by Little Simz all am. *laughs like Regine from Living Single  Hit the link and bop with me -selfishly. *sings Cleo Sol’s parts extra loud and dances like a pageant mom “My best friend is I… I’m so selfish.”


Self Portrait #499

I take many self-portraits. My favorite photographer asked me what I was trying to capture here.

What was I trying to capture?

What did I capture?

In this particular moment I had no where to be, no emails to response to, no disputes to settle, no brainstorming sessions- nothing.

I’m thankful for the responsibilities that I have chosen to take on but damn, it feels good to put it on pause for a moment.

I was remembering to just be. The sunshine was out and the breeze was blowing. Freshly washed and styled hair and my makeup free face amplified deep feelings of clear headedness or the clarity of mind I felt… feel.

Clarity – my favorite kind of charity. *Laughs

The abstract pattern the shadows casted on the wall made me think of my own journey. I am identifying and breaking my own patterns of darkness in efforts to make space and further open my heart to the light, creating my own abstracted pattern of varying hues of internal illumination. They need each other, the rays of light and darkness, for contrast and interest.

It’s my responsibility to manage my inner light and I do, with the help of earthly and heavenly guidance. ( Thank y’all kindly. *smiles wide)

What was I trying to capture here?

What did I capture here?

I captured my wholeness in every sense of the verb.

Writer’s Note: I wrote example sentences to each meaning of the word capture- it felt divine and maybe I’ll circle back and share another time. O and yes- Happy Valentine’s Day mothacluckas.
