I wrote this one for anyone feeling a little dull or down because sometimes we forget our own power. The momentum that our thoughts can give us, the benefits of a few minutes of mindfulness. Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and let it all flow.
Nothing you require is outside of yourself
The energy spent seeking approval from others
Pour it inward
Your body: Move it
Dance for no reason
Your mind: Nourish it
Read, focus on good thoughts
Your spirit :
Elevate it. Pray. Meditate. Manifest. Love
The eternal effervescence ripples through your body
You are everything
The world teaches you to forget
Put together the broken pieces
Play with the demons make them work for you
Being happy and radiating love is your divine responsibility
Cultivate an unshakeable vibe
Believe everything is always right on time
Be the light. Find your fire. Vibe bright

Here we are in February or the month of love as it is typically called. Single or taken there will always be one individual that you can always rely on and that is yourself. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in fulfilling the needs of others that we forget ourselves. When was the last time you did something nice for yourself, you know just because? Do you take time to go within and celebrate your beauty and all that you have to offer this world? Today and every day I urge you to focus on yourself. Know that you are worthy, special and loved. Here are five simple mantras that serve as a reminder of your divine greatness.
I Am Enough
One of the simplest affirmations and one of the most effective .Self acceptance is the key to happiness. Know this; you lack nothing. You are were not created to be mediocre. Embrace all of your quirks and imperfections know that they make you the unique and wonderful soul that you are.
I am Strong, I am Capable, I Got This Covered
Don’t view obstacles, setbacks, and rejection as negative. They were all designed to make you better, stronger and more versatile. Nothing affirms your fierceness quite like achieving a dream or getting over something that you once viewed as insurmountable. It may take a day, a year or even ten . You are capable of achieving it all. Make goals, manifest and most importantly take action. Nothing ventured. Nothing gained. The only failure is in playing it safe all the time and not trying anything new.
I Am Worthy Of All The Good Things Life Has To Offer
Love, happiness, and joy exist for all of us. Don’t buy into the notion that only a certain type of individual deserves abundance or fulfillment. No matter how you look, your net worth, your beliefs; we are all special. We all deserve to live how we want to. Opinions as always are irrelevant. Your life, your rules. Fear and doubt should never hold you back from manifesting the reality you crave.
I Love Myself Unconditionally
I love you. How often do you say this to yourself? Flatter yourself. Write yourself a love letter. Look in the mirror smile and say I love you. Make a list of all the things you appreciate about yourself. Pin it to your mirror. Keep it in your journal. Commit it to memory. Read it often. You are fabulous. Don’t you ever forget it .
I Trust My Intuition And My Journey
How often we get caught up in the comparison game. It leaves you feeling left behind and like you are less than. You are exactly where you need to be. Make peace with your past so it does not ruin your present. Don’t watch what others are doing it will only distract you from achieving what you want to. Think about it do you really want to be like everyone else? How boring would that be? Put it all into to perspective Look at how far you have come. Work on making yourself better than you were yesterday.
On the bad days, it is difficult to see the rainbow in the dark skies. Just remember to find ways to inject positivity into your life every day. Small consistent efforts often lead to big gains.

What are some of your favorite self-care tips and how do you practice self-love? Share in the comments below and let’s spread the love.
Resentment, regret they build up
Layers and years of disappointments are parasites that feed on your core
You can only hold on to it for so long before it wears you down
Steals your inner peace
The anger bubbles and it’s hard to control the beast
Bitter, when did life become such a bitter pill
You look in the mirror and you wonder where did the happy smiling version of you go
Everything is dark and it all feels like hell
You just don’t want to exist anymore
Your burdens are crushing, your mind is a minefield
There is no safe haven, no hand to hold
Experiences, people have changed you until you become someone you used to know
You have lost your sparkle, let them dull your shine until you have nothing left to show
Depleted and drained
It hurts too much to feel
The very thing you are are holding on to is the thing you need to let go
A cavity, an empty space, feeling hollow.
Written By Tachira Wiltshire
Sticking with the romance or as one of my readers said Fifty shades theme. I never finished the books. Anna annoyed me. I think maybe we all want someone to accept us as we are. Completely.
Quiet and unassuming
The unexpected stallion rode her rugged
Dominant, dark and intense she felt him to her core
Tied up, stripped down
He was her master
She whispered ”Yes sir ” I want to fulfill your every desire ”
He possessed her mind, body, and soul.

I was always a fan of trashy romance novels. I suppose all women need that little bit of imaginative spice in their lives; that heart pounding, bliss-inducing electricity these stories always describe. One part fiction, one part real life. My attempt at that dabbling with that romance novel vibe.
” What’s life without a little risk”? he whispered
She begged him to go but as he drew nearer her heart slammed against her chest
I hate everything about you she taunted
He drew her nearer and she quivered as if she was haunted
She lost all her reasoning as he gently sampled her lips
Heat flooded her body as his kisses grew more intense
Piercing and electric
His touch was her kryptonite
He persisted, she resisted
He not only ravished her body but he lay claim to part of soulful essence that night.

List 2 things you have to be happy about?
I live in a winter free zone.
I have a safe and comfortable home. I am grateful that there are no wars being fought here.

I used to collect rocks I found on the beach all of the time when I was younger. Now the only rocks I own are my crystals. They were specially chosen for my Sun Sign which is a Libra.
Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
I don’t think I am much of a hugger; then again I am an introvert we tend to want to run from human interaction 🙂
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
My inspiration was simple. As I heard the news of my next door neighbor’s passing; I was reminded that I should enjoy each moment. We are well aware that we must die; however, we never get used to hearing the news of someone’s passing. Don’t spend your moments being miserable. Appreciate every single second you are given.

In pursuit of the perfect life?
Don’t hold your breath
At the end of it, all the years seems like seconds a ripple in time
Do you really want to waste your essence steeped in despair?
Most days it feels as if you merely blink and like magic the hours disappear
Don’t be on your deathbed and lament that you never really experienced life
Seize the moments, make the best of it
Ditch the bitchin and celebrate the fact that you are alive.
