Even the strongest have extremely weak moments. Don’t let the external appearance fool you.
A Manifestation of Dreams
We must believe in the power of our dreams. If our desires are but a small thought with underdeveloped ideas and plans, keep the fire burning and feed your desires. Turn those desires into passions and keep working at them. Be positively consistent. If you fall off, don’t stay off. Embed it in your brain and engrave it on your heart like you would some other surface. Live a purposeful life and it is almost guaranteed that you will see your dreams come true.
Interview With A Vampire
If you think about it, that’s how most of us are. We like to have control over the things we want to control and we all have parts of ourselves and our world that triggers the insecure character traits. Nothing is wrong with that.
A Wild Thing Doesn’t Feel Sorry For Itself
“I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.” So, why should humans, the lesser known ‘wild things ever muster up the audacious entitlement to ever feel sorry for ourselves?
Why Time Travel?
There’s no time like now for me to live and experience what life has to offer. Why travel back in time to experience the injustices of life and the unfair treatment meted out in human-to-human disputes? There’s enough of that happening now.
No matter what image you have of yourself, others will see something else. It may be similar, but it won’t be identical. Why? Well, people’s perception of you differs. Don’t get your panties up in a knot wondering what people see when they look at you. Yeah, it’s true, you will only see a reflection of yourself because that’s how we were made…to only see our own reflection. However, the view others have of you from images that capture will always be a sight to behold. Make it worth your while and their while.

Do away with victim shaming and blaming. A victim never asks to be assaulted, attacked or killed. Check your perpetrators and hold them accountable. Stop channelling your energies in the wrong direction.
Reading Maketh A Jamaican Suburban Girl 📚
Because I want to improve myself as an individual and also as a professional, I have set a goal of 20 books for the calendar year. That’s manageable, right? I think so. I know as well that the more I read, the greater the chances of improved vocabulary, writing style and imaginative creativity.
Sixth sense to the umpteenth power
I’d love to be able to tap more into my sixth sense and actually know what’s coming so that I may prepare and know how to handle it. I’d also love to prepare and brace for it to happen. That’s all I want.
Inclusivity: The Disabled/Special Needs Community
The language we use is important. However, we must delve deeper into the nitty-gritty of it all. Action and ‘not a bag a mout’ is how we truly effect inclusivity for the special needs community.
Lessons to learn and relearn
At the end of the day, nothing is really owed to you and you don’t really owe anything to anyone.
Writing: Facing and overcoming challenges
If life was easy to navigate then the joy of winning at life wouldn’t feel as fulfilling as when you fight and work diligently to achieve what you want.
Ideally: A Good Date
After writing all of that, I feel like I described a series of potential date ideas for a potential suitor. So, instead of ideal day, I inadvertently changed it to an ideal date. Ha! Take notes, gentlemen. 😂. Don’t be boring or predictable.
Synchronicity: My voice, facial expressions and the emojis I use
I will end here to say that though the use of emojis is part of the everyday “texter’s” life, we cannot depend solely on emojis to depict true emotions and feelings or even to carry a conversation. We need our voices. In some cases, we need body language, facial expressions, and we also need comprehension of intended meanings.
The Bold Jamaican Suburban Girl: Celebrating My Blackness
Since my conscious effort to live boldly in my Blackness, despite all other negatively perceived factors, I have felt more like myself. I have been comfortable. I live boldly and I don’t apologise for it.
For these, I give thanks
I’m grateful for the negative, badmine and grudgeful people out in the world. It is because of them that I know how NOT to live my life. It is because of them that I know how I should live and treat others. If these people didn’t exist, I would’ve been much more lost than I am. They’ve taught me lessons that bring my gratitude list together. It is through my experience with these people that I recognise the importance of being grateful, practicing great discernment and loving on my friends and family. It is because of the negative, badmine and grudgeful that I burnt some bridges and repaired others. I’m pretty sure it was an experience with these people that prompted my ability to laugh and laugh heartily according to situations. I have to tell them thanks!
Making an ass of “u” and “me”
We fail to forget that people carry the weight of their world on their backs without people knowing. Right? There’s a meme I see quite often that says something like: “people carry their load and baggage well – well enough for you to not know what’s really going on.”
Letters to the World from a Jamaican Suburban Girl
I love the fact that you get to benefit, in general terms, from my misdeeds and misfortunes through my writing. Why do I say this? Well, you know those life lessons you get taught? Those lessons come from real life situations that have happened to me or in my life. It’s the fact that I can use my sense of humor in the silly things to teach simple but life changing lessons.
It’s the silly things
Though my laughter isn’t always loud, it gets the message across. You know how facial expressions and body language depicts a message? Well, my laughter and its variations have their own language and its easily understood. I say this because the laughter, facial expressions and body language work together in unison. Its a sight to behold, actually.
I used to seek inspiration from other people and then I stopped
I used to have a list of people who inspired me. However, little by little, I noticed characteristics that I didn’t like. Little by little, I would’ve gotten into disagreements with them and based on how they handled the situations, my mindset towards them changed.
