The World We Live In, We Must Stay Strong 

We live in a world filled with confusion and hurt. Love and happiness. Pain and suffering. Light and healing. Though, with all the positive things we should give energy and passion to, the darkness has a way of rearing its ugly head, and steal the most precious things we hold near and dear to our hearts. It wants to grab onto the things that makes us human, turned them into a struggle just to live, and leave us feeling destitute.

We must remain strong and not get sucked into what is in the darkness. Love and light are there for us. And a life filled with blessings, abundance, joy, peace, comfort and safety.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend! ❤


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”

Much Thanks On Reaching 1,000!!! #Achievement 

First off, how has everyone’s Thanksgiving been? Mines went well. I spent it with my mom, daughter, and brothers. I love how we can be ourselves with each other and just laugh and talk about any and everything.

Now, about you all, I would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom for everything that you do. Thank you so so much!

When I first started this blog, K. Phoenix, I was totally lost and confused; yet, I have gotten through the five years of managing it with hard work, breaks, determination, etc.

Though, I wasn’t alone. You guys have supported me and listened to my struggles, the good and the bad, and read my stories. It means so much to me to have wonderful people out there who are there for you. (Sniff, sniff.)

A little secret of mines: I haven’t been consistent with my blogging over the years. I took too long of time away from it due to: frustration, family issues, and to find myself outside of it. I wanted to know who I really am and the direction I wanted K. Phoenix to go.

Wow! I have lost some followers and gained more. Getting my content out there and reaching out inspiring others (and helping others) was and still is my main goal- not a number of followers I hope to have.
A few things to remember:

  • Be yourself. (Everyone does their own thing differently. We all are unique.)
  • Find your voice.
  • Be humble.
  • Don’t give up. (I know it is hard, but imagine how far you’ll go if you just keep the momentum.)
  • And, always support others. (We’re all in together.)

    Again, thank you all for following me! It has been a pleasure following you and reading your blog posts. Several more years to go with you guys. Woot woot! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

    Much love,

    Pamela 🌹XO


    Don’t Break Yourself Just To Build Up Someone Else

    There comes a time in your life when you tried all that you could, yet, you come to realize that you have to put YOU first. That’s one idea.

    Don’t break yourself, taking pieces from yourself just to use those same “pieces” to fix someone else. Don’t, I tell you.

    Cause, some people don’t want to be fix and that’s okay. No matter what it is, or how much  you want to:

    You can NOT help someone before you can help yourself, or unless the two of you can help build each other up together. That’s another idea.

    Take care of  yourself:

    • Mentally
    • Physically
    • Spiritually
    • Emotionally
    • And also, financially. First.

    Enjoy the rest of your day!

    The Next Chapter

    During the month of September, I’m going to try something new with YOU on Fridays.

    If it works, great. If it doesn’t, we’ll move on and pretend like it never happened, okay? 🙂

    You know how much I like music and fiction, right?

    Instead of posting music #MusicMondays or old fiction on #FictionFridays, for the Fridays in September, I will be posting a song lyric as a writing prompt fr YOU. If you don’t like the lyric I post, you can simply use another you hear or just write according to the essence of the song.

    If you take the challenge, I’ll ask you to pingback to the post or drop a your link post in the comment box.  

    Flash fiction, regular fiction, poem…it will be up to you! I’d love to see what beautiful creations you come…
