Happy Valentine’s Day! #happyvalentinesday #love

Today is the day of love, romance, and exchanging gifts. Although, for the latter, this special day means more than exchanging gifts. Valentine’s Day is the day to come together in peace and harmony, doing something special for someone, and for yourself. Don’t forget to do what takes to make you happy. Practice #selflove .
The day to share love and to celebrate it. And an act of kindness, if I might add. All of the above should be everyday.

I pray that everyone have a wonderful, loving, bless day. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!


Don’t Be Afraid To Make A Change To Be A Better You

I told myself over a year ago that in order for me to move forward in life, I must make a change. To come out of whatever shell I’m in and away from the naysayers who felt like I would be doing something wrong if I make a change that I haven’t tried before. Or to just do something with my life other than allowing those who don’t care about me no way or another to dictate to me believing that I should remain where I am.
Because, being in a situation that no longer serving you, especially when you’ve done all that you could do and you’re not where you want to be, literally and figuratively, shouldn’t have to remain the same. I never could get the saying, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” I feel like if one way isn’t working, you should try something else. You have that right to do so.
That what life is all about- reinventing yourself, to be a better version of yourself.
We have one life and we have to live it on our own terms, not anyone else’s.

A song that had inspired me over the years but it took going through a lot to know that enough is enough, is a song by Kelly Clarkson called, Breakaway.

The lyrics can explain it better than I can.

Here’s part of the lyrics:

“I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway”

#SongLyricSunday: Fantasia- Truth Is #music #love

Today’s prompt, “truth” comes from Helen Vahdati.

Sometimes, people like to withhold the truth about how they feel or anything else out of fear or ego. It’s okay to express how you feel in whatever way you feel comfortable with. Like that saying goes, “the truth will set you free.”



[Verse 1]
Ran into an old friend yesterday
Caught me by surprise when he called my name
He was a familiar face
From a chapter in my past

Talked for a while
Asked him how it’s been
Said that he was seeing somebody and
Told me this was gonna last
Showing me her photograph

And all the feelings that I thought were gone
Came rushing back to me at once
Tried to smile and hide the way I felt
But I was thinking to myself

(Truth is)
I never got over you
(Truth is)
Wish I was standing in her shoes
(Truth is)
And when it’s all said and done
Guess I’m still in love with you

(Truth is)
I never should have let you go
(Truth is)
And it’s killing me cuz now I know
(Truth is)
And when it’s all said and done
Guess I’m still in love with you

[Verse 2]
We reminisce on the way things used to be
Shared a couple laughs, shared some memories
Talked about the things that changed
Some for good and some for bad

Then he said good-bye
And he paid for lunch
Promised that we’d always keep in touch
Grabbed my bags and grabbed my thoughts
Walked away and that was that

[Repeat Hook]

[Repeat Chorus]

Now the truth is it hurts
But I know that the fault is mine
‘Cuz I let him go
Tried to get over it
But it’s messin’ with my mind
(Because I know)

[Repeat Chorus (2x)]

I just gotta be honest
I guess
I-I guess, I’m still in love, in love, in love
