Hi, there lovelies Happy and Blessed Sunday to all of you beautiful souls.
Something about Sundays reverberates quiet reflection for me. For some it is a day of worship, for others, it just screams fun in the sun. If you are lucky you have the day off from work. I remember two years of working Sundays, for me that was just so disrespectful lol but hey one must pay the bills, feed the family and also my mild shopping addiction. Whatever your Sunday entails; how about you ask yourself today, What can I do to make life better for me? Be totally selfish. You deserve it. Somehow our souls always have the answers, we know what needs to be done but yet we often times feel guilty about saying no or maybe just disappearing for a few hours for a recharge. Take a few minutes today to do something that brings you joy. Absolutely no excuses. Even if it is just buying yourself an ice cream cone and pretending that you are a toddler again with not a care in this world. Simply reflect on this past week and what made it great, even if it wasn’t so great to use your imagination it can lead you to some wonderful places. As usual, I leave you with one of my poems. Hopefully, it inspires you, sparks some food for thought or simply let it be a few seconds to escape from it all.
Life can be messy
You have to choose your battles wisely
Are you going to walk around with a weight on your shoulders?
No wonder you are tired
Worry does make the air so thick and heavy
It can become stifling, crippling, gripping you so tightly that your forget t breathe
In any situation you have three options :
Stress about it, Accept it or if you just can’t deal then carry on smartly
No need for revenge, resentment or regret
We have no space to encourage and foster that bad energy
Work on your own shit
Don’t watch others are doing
Work on where you place your focus
Sometimes you trip, you most definitely will fall
No shame in faltering as long as you get back up again
Be brave enough to choose yourself
Pick your battles, Keep your glow up
In this life you need to choose your battles wisely
If it does not bring you peace then it isn’t for you
Put one foot in front of the other, let it go, move on from the darkness
Sometimes you just need to say to hell with it and walk away
Pick your battles, know your worth and carry on smartly

How do you deal with life’s messes? What brings you joy?
When I was younger, I always saw endings as a tragedy They induced panic, caused tears.
So dramatic I was I always thought they were the end of me As I grew older and mastered the skill of letting things go I realised that faith would guide me The things that fall away were only meant to be there for a moment The disappointments, the rejections they do not define me The pain , the upset the messy moments They all come together to help you grow So what if it is over? It was fun for the while
The time has come to let it go Endings don’t have to be sad It may have been good but better will come Have faith, take that leap Welcome all possibilities with open arms Let go and let it flow.
Sometimes, we all have our weak moments. You guys can relate I am sure, You know the ones where you get down on yourself because you think maybe, just maybe you are falling behind or your life is not going according to your best-laid plans. I came up with this one after a meditation. I totally love when inspiration hits me from nowhere. This is a reminder for myself as well as anyone who needs it. You are a precious gift to this world. Never forget to .. Cherish yourself, take care of your inner needs and take exquisite care of yourself.
You do not have to be defined by your experiences You do not have to be tethered to your past Take things one day at a time Work on enjoying this moment Take a deep breath Feel your body fill with calm and contentment Smile and believe, any moment, this very moment can be your fresh start.
Start as many times as you need to Be patient with yourself Love yourself relentlessly Your energy, your vibe your soul that is your wealth Take time to unplug, decompress, chuck it all to just be and spend some time with yourself You have the power to be whatever you want to be and not be defined externals Focus on you , fill your own damn cup for once It is never selfish, only foolish not to pour all of the love you have into yourself

How do you show yourself, Love? What is your favourite self-care activity?
It was fun for a while , those playful days in the sun She thought he would be the one to always make her smile Sand flowed through her fingers She wanted to build something everlasting Put her heart and soul into it An unexpected wave came in and washed it all away Tried her hardest to salvage the ruins In the end he wouldn’t stay Grains of love remained , stuck to heart and stinging her eyes The remnants of their time together Memories replaying in her mind Some people are like sandcastles They aren’t meant to stay You have fun , you cherish the moments You build a masterpiece only to have it washed away This is the story of love and life You play with the fire and get burned 1000 times Feelings cut you like a knife This is the story of love and life Everything is temporary Not everything is meant to stay You build a beautiful sandcastle only to have it washed away
On March 8th we celebrate International Women’ s Day. This years’ theme is #pressforprogress . I look forward to the day when all women can be afforded the opportunity to live up to their true potential. The day when we will not be judged or labelled for how we chose to live our lives. We all wonder women . We are all beautiful in our own right; with our unique stories and gifts. We are women, a source of unlimited resilience. Love and the utmost respect due to every female on the planet. Never let anything dull your sparkle and remember whatever you are going through. You got this boo. There is nothing that a woman can not handle. Channel your inner goddess. Equality is a right. Let no one ever make you feel unworthy because you are the giver of life. To be feminine is to be divine.
We are the mothers, the creators, the lovers The backbone of society Built to endure any strenuous task Nothing is ever impossible Never a tough ask Underestimated, abused, threatened, perceived as the weaker sex We break down all the barriers and cry out against the injustices You can not rule our bodies, our souls, our spirits, our minds By your misguided standards of beauty and intelligence, we will never be defined Empowered, We are more intense, complex and beautiful than you will ever know It’s 2018, fuck your outdated standards believes and judgments We will not be suppressed and objectified We are women. the catalysts for change A force to be reckoned with, together we stand Fueled by the fire and passion for equal rights
Rise goddesses,, unshakeable divine and full of light.
Beautiful and Blessed Too dope to be stressed These ”problems ” do not define you Tension Anxiety Frustration These are not yours to carry Those who think you are unworthy, that is all at them Don’t let them determine your levels of happy It may feel off-balance, out of whack Shit may feel heavy It is just a temporary test A lesson learned What you have lost cannot compare the bounty that is forthcoming Better days are ahead Just trust and believe.

Weighed down by burdens left unseen They were never hers to carry why couldn’t she keep the slate clean Trying to do it all like Supergirl She could never win Feeling like she was failing at life ready to throw the towel in Giving away precious energy until it eroded her soul It was all so heavy, it got too heavy holding on to the old familiar faces the things that brought her comfort but stabbed at her psyche Dull and aching She longed for a taste of a new life Feeling trapped, caged, a prisoner in her own skin When did she become tethered The lioness wanted to growl but all she could muster was a whimper It was time to start over Allow, accept, and release Face it head on She had forgotten her strength Her inner goddess unamused Clawing to break free from the mental chains Somehow she conjured the strength to rediscover the magic buried deep inside She dug deep, no more suffering, no more doubts she would no longer hide Rediscovering her purpose Redefining her goals, basking in the dysfunctional beauty of the moment she was in She would grow to love herself again
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 Ignore it 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 Written By Tachira Wiltshire
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.
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 Relentless passion He was her master She whispered ”Yes sir ” I want to fulfill your every desire ” He possessed her mind, body, and soul.
