Monday Motivation: Expect the Extraordinary!

I used to be afraid to ask for everything I wanted because I was always told in words or actions that I wasn’t worthy. Now I intentionally surround myself with people who believe in me and push me to dream bigger and expect the extraordinary to happen. This season in my life is an exciting and reflective time for me. I see things I thought were impossible happening and miracles are manifesting. I am claiming what’s mine, I believe dreams do come true and I am worthy!

Don’t settle for less than you desire. Remove those negative thoughts from your head and if the people closest to you are placing those thoughts on your mind you may want to seek a new support system. 💜

Finally Over_Original Poetry 1/9/1985

Finally Over

When I lost you

I found myself

and I hurt

I pained

for too long

thinking of how foolish I had been to believe in you

But my hurt turned into poetry and dance

and I wrote

and danced

until I filled up the emptiness inside of me

The void that set inside my soul

when you were no longer there

Poetry about you and for myself  poured from my fingertips

like golden rum at Carnival time in Trinidad

I loved until I stopped hurting

and I found not only myself


someone to love me for real

And oh yes

there were times when I wished he were you

until constant caresses and truthful sighs

showed me that true love takes me for what I am


it is finally over.

Real love has rescued my weary soul

and you are just a faded memory

because I am no longer afraid to return

the love that I have been given
