A Masterpiece

masterpiece

A divine masterpiece is what I consider myself to be. A fine piece of art that’s getting designed and fine tuned for the world to see.

I’m an original creation so of course I come with blemishes and flaws. The imperfections add to my beauty so my audience should not be appalled.

A whirl wind of colors and unique characteristics that helps me stand out. The beauty you see on the outside is only a small portion of what this masterpiece is about.

My brush of life makes many errors and the eraser comes in hand. You’ll have to be the creator of this canvas to fully understand.

Big strokes and little strokes represent all of the chances I take. The different variations shows this is original art and not fake.

I play around with different elements until I find what works best for me. Trial and error is the best method for this colorful yet interesting journey.

A masterpiece is in the works this is not just unfinished art on the easel. Beautiful things take time just think of the Mona Lisa.

My love for words

words-letters-scrabble-text-722694.jpegI have always been infatuated by poetry. A fun way to express your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Poetry is like a stress reliever in the form of a pen and pad. You can take yourself wherever you would like to go with poetry. Just you, your words, your thoughts, your pen, and pad on a journey to whatever heights you want to take yourself!!!

No Drama

Sometimes the most gut wrenching things that happen in your life are caused by an outside source. You can be in your own world trying to walk a straight line and build a positive life for yourself and your future and drama can fall right in your lap. In the past I have addressed the drama. I fussed, I fought. Whatever you can think of I did it.

Quite recently I found myself in battle of words with someone I hold very dear to my heart. The tone, the words that were said left me in an ocean of tears. How could this person harbor so much anger towards me and I think the world of them? That’s when I realized some of the people closest to you sometimes have the most negative things to say about you. Some things may be true but a lot of things are that person searching high and low for negatives to make you feel bad and bring you down to their hurting soul. Besides if a person who cares wants to provide criticism to you, a personal, un hostile setting would be ideal for such a situation. Some people appreciate the fact of magnifying your flaws with an attempt to humiliate you in front of others.

Those battle of words I had with a loved one recently left me physically and mentally drained. I had to step back to get away from it all and focus on me. I can’t deal with the negativity and drama so I had to ask myself why do you let people push you to stoop to their level? I’m on a different path and silly things that don’t impact myself or the world positively are beneath me. I will learn to turn the cheek more and realize there may always be just as much negative being thrown at me as positive. I cannot control others but I can most definitely control me.

A friend of mine recently offered me some advice saying, “don’t fight every battle that comes your way.” I’ve found that not everyone thinks I’m a great person. Not everyone understands and appreciate who I am. Truth is I would be one tired woman trying to battle it out with everyone who speaks or feels poorly of me. I’m confident enough to know I am an awesome, imperfect soul. I cannot argue and convince a person to see the positive in me when all they want to see is negative. Why even waste all my energy to do so when I am surrounded by others who see the greatness in me? Walking away is more satisfying than indulging myself in battles and petty drama. I try to treat everyone with kindness because that’s how I would like to be treated in return. I can control my words and thought process but I can’t control those of others. Turning a cheek to mess is the best thing ever for me. Xoxo Soulfully True

Live for you!!!

Sometimes you just have to live for you and do you! Some people won’t like you for it but what I learned in my 25+ years is the one’s who matter in your life will roll with you however you bring it! People can be with you or against you but no matter what you gotta be you…. I may have a smart mouth sometimes, a little anti at times, talk too much at times, and a gang of other things. But I have a heart ❤ of gold and if I mess with you I mess with you for real and I have so many who can vouch for this. I have always did me without giving an explanation and stayed out the way of mess and drama. I like to associate myself with people who are on the same!! I’ve never had to force friendships or relationships!! I have people who accept me for me and want me in their life and they get the same from me. We may be different, and make different choices, and decisions but we still respect ourselves and others at all times!! If we don’t understand we gain some type of understanding. We don’t claim to be perfect just living life and doing us!!  If you don’t surround yourself with people who accept you for you, you’re losing!!!

I’m Taking It Back

On my way to work this morning I was thinking about a lot of things that I have going on in my life.  Some of these things I deal with everyday. These thoughts do include negative situations that affect many areas of my life. These situations are not necessarily major but they’re things that I deal with daily. Honestly I try my best not to focus on these negative things because I know my time to move on from them is quickly approaching. I do get tired though and want to break down and want to wish certain circumstances away because they sometimes make me become a person I do not like. I find myself more irritated and caught in the middle of a lot of not exactly happy people. I have to put on a smile and keep myself positive but of course I have my moments.

I am blessed with friends and family who are good listeners to help me get through the tough situations. Thing is I don’t want to continue bringing my negative situations to people and I no longer want it brought to me. I’ve found that giving it too much of your energy takes a toll on your mind. I told myself I need more help spiritually. I need God to put things in perspective for me with the things I’m dealing with. He can and he will I just have to give him the wheel and receive the peace, wisdom, and strength that he has for me.I need him to work on my attitude and the way I deal with things.

I am for the most part a very positive person but I still have room for growth. I have a lot of things and people who I need to let go of to enable me to live a more peaceful and genuine life. In the midst of my thoughts I changed the radio station and a song called “I’m Taking it Back” by Shirley Caesar came on and I absolutely had a spiritual breakdown. She was saying that she is taking back her mind from all of the negative things. I broke down in tears because I truly needed to hear those words of encouragement.

We all have our own battle in this world be it small or large. We have to be very careful not to feed too much into them though because like everything in this world, IT TOO SHALL PASS. We cannot lose our peaceful mindset or strength when dealing with these battles. All I could do is thank God because I know I need to take it back (my mind). I can’t continue feeding into things and talking about things because it absolutely does not make it better. It actually causes more problems. I have goals I am working on. I’m a step closer to being in my chosen career field, I thrive to be a better mom,to become more spiritually in touch, a better example to others, a better friend and a host of other things. I have to keep looking ahead and not let negative situations take over my mind!! I’m taking it back! Soulfully True

Time is Precious

time

Time is such a precious thing. You can either use time to your greatest advantage or you can waste it. It’s up to you to decide which road you will take when dealing with time. Sometimes we remain fixated on things or people who waste our time.

Not meaning to sound selfish but time is money. You have to be very selective of who and what you allocate your time to. In exchange for your time it is beneficial to gain something positive from the person or thing you give it to. Why would you involve yourself in something draining and invaluable to you? Your time could have been spent gaining something that will promote the betterment of you.

At some point of your life you should realize the downside of committing yourself to less than desirable situations. Why invest your precious time and energy into a dead-end job or relationship. At some point you realize if that job or relationship is for you. Why drag it out when you know it doesn’t satisfy you. The time spent trying to convince or force yourself to feel good about the undesirable situation is the time and energy that could have been used towards something or someone that is truly desirable to you.

Do not sacrifice your time for the sake of pleasing others or for the fear of the what ifs. Of course things happen and you may find yourself in a situation where you wasted a lot of time. The thing with that is when you know better you do better. There is always room to grow but be sure you learn your lesson from wasted time and don’t continue to make the same mistakes repetitively.

Time waits for no one and the time you put out you can never get back so be certain to make the situations you involve yourself in are absolutely worth your time.

Let it Go

growing apart

I know it hurts for you to let go because it’s hurts for me too

But to be honest, lately it’s also been hurting to hold on for me and you

The love is there but the pain, the stress, the complication is getting the best of us

You’re not doing all you can to help save us

This has been an experience, my patience has grown so thick

I remember past situations in my life that I’ve taken the exit door quick

Me staying here waiting for you is cheating me from what I deserve and that’s not what I wanna do

On a positive note I wanna stick it out and have more faith in us but the optimistic gets tired too!!

As a woman I’ve sacrificed what my soul is yearning on your promise to deliver

It’s like I wanna sail along but our boat is stuck in the middle of the river

One ultimate goal in my love life is growing together with someone and not apart

I know all good things don’t come easy but I don’t think it should be this hard

Yes we have great times, our existence is not misery

Right now it’s bigger than that I can’t live in the moment I live for long term growth actually

In other words, I’m positive but I have to look at the big picture

I’m all about improving the grey areas in life that’s actually how we differ

If you’re losing hope on life how can I stay strong and keep the hope for us

I need people around who help strengthen me like I do for them right now that is a must!!!

I know it hurts for us to let go but is it worth staying if we won’t/can’t grow?
