    Why I decided to love me by Nancy Fleuridor

    When my blogging friend @faithnturtles and I decided to write a blog on self- love my mind began to wonder. I started to think about the era when I was very insecure and the times I did not delight in my features like my legs, arms, shoulders and other aspects of my body. I grew up hearing questions like “Why are you so skinny?” a dozen hour in the day. If I had a dollar for every person that mentioned those words to me, I would be a millionaire. Eventually, the Lord freed me from caring about what people thought of me and their outlook of who I was. I…

    I am in love with Poetry- Featuring Al Flemming

    Serenity   Familiar. The wind commands the attention of not only my body, But my soul, As my very being is lifted gently by the salty surprise that each breath provides. A feeling all too familiar. My eyelids collapse for a mere moment as I feel truly at peace. Alas, This is when she catches me off-guard. Her waves creep up on me softly. Disguised by the spell which the wind has cast. Her touch is gentle. Her waves brush my feet as the sand massages my sole. But she is a shy one. When I turn to greet her, She retreats from my grasp. Yet the white carpet that…

    Let me start by saying that I am extremely grateful that I am able to write yet another blog post. My blog has somehow become my outlet and has been helping me greatly.

    Gratitude will Change Your Life.

    We all know gratitude to be an emotion in which we express appreciation for the things we have. When you are showing or expressing gratitude you ignore the ‘i wish I had’ thoughts and thank god for what you do have. But, how many of us practice gratitude on a daily basis? The sad truth is, not many people give thanks for what they have without thinking of what they do not have. This practice has also been enhanced with the social media era which often causes people to be in constant comparison. (I wish I had a house like that. I wish I looked like him/her). I wish, I…

    Running with 'Motivation'.

    A lot of times, we as humans need to see others excelling in order to get a little push for ourselves. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being inspired by someone and wanting to be successful yourself. For me, I look up to people who I see every day, working hard and achieving their goals. At this point in my life, I am most inspired by my parents, siblings, the majority of my friends, my spouse, other bloggers and a few people on social media (Whom I will not name at this time) One great friend that I am inspired by is my Best Friend Eleka Hughes Joseph. Eleka and…

    The Importance of Self Celebration.

    Do you ever say to yourself ‘hey! you did well today. I am proud of you and I am going to take you to dinner?” If you have, how did that feel? Did it feel better than when that same sentence was said to you by a loved one? If you have never said that to yourself then I must say you are missing out on the opportunity; to be your own inspiration, to be enough for yourself, to show yourself true self-love, to take charge of your own happiness. But, there is good news. ALL that STOPS today. Henceforth, you will celebrate yourself. The art of knowing yourself  A…
