Oscar Wilde said “she lives the poetry that she cannot write.” I guess I write the poetry that I cannot live.
you believe in follow your dreams and the logistics will fall in place and if they dont oh well. I say handle the logistics and the dreams can be created and maintained. Neither one is right or wrong…..its just perception but in each lies some truth.
hard as steel yet soft as magnolias
Mannnn EVERYTIME! lol
the woman that bashed stay at home moms and housewives now only envies them and wishes she could have their seat. I have been overworked and overstressed so much that at this point yes, I will quit my job and allow a God-fearing man to take care of me. All I wana stress over is which recipe to pick, do these drapes match, and which shoes go with this purse or how should I get my hair this week………………..now to just get to that point lol. Does this make me a hypocrite or learner with a change of heart. And besides who knows, maybe once I’m taken care of for a while….I’ll go back to work….i’m sure I will though.
On August 1st, I took on a new responsibility. When signing my name on the dotted line for the responsibility I was terrified and honestly wasnt sure if the plan I had in my brain would work. I knew it would be hard and I knew I would experience struggle but I also knew I served a Creator that would make me go through to get to (I still dont know what the final destination is though lol) Anywho this entire semester I have worked three jobs and attended school fulltime. Three is my lucky number so I just used that as rationalization for my exhausting hustle. I missed my homecoming. My friends have to visit me at one of my three jobs to see me. And I broke my promise to my besties to visit them. Not to mention I havent seen my scottie sisters either. I also havent been home and I’m not sure when I will go home. I have no regrets so by all means dont see this as a complaint. “I’m working towards living a better life and for that I will serve a life sentence” All im saying here is………………..MAMA HAS WORKED HARD!!! And all I want is to buy myself a nice dress, some heels to die for, slap on some bold make up and blow my fro alllllll the waaaay out and be a Diva for ONE NIGHT! It shall happen. NOTE: I am not sure why I chose this song…it just popped in my head and fit the post lol
I don’t know what you’re doing right now, but you gotta hear Carvens Lissaint’s “Love Poem.” I seriously can’t even find the words to describe how beautiful this is.
(If you wanna skip the interview , go to the 3:30 mark)
Goodness.Gracious.Immediate tear release listening to this.
a STEEL MAGNOLIA…..Strong and weak. High and Low. Hot and Cold. Hard and soft. White and Black. Left and Right. Push and Pull. Action and Reaction. I run away only to turn and run straight into mountains that will move at the sight of my motivation and persistence. I am a woman! Giver of life. Life’s Sacrifice. And its only a man’s world because I allow them to believe so! Hmph!!!
