Inner Voice

Your strength is remarkable
Your beauty uncanning on the inside out
Your heart is big
You love hard, give freely and laugh often
You inspire
You encourage
You listen
You learn
You are a true warrior in times of adversity
Your light shines
Your confidents glows
You somehow dismiss worry with your faith
You dream big and live free
Despite my self-consciousness
You are ME...

The Jokes On US

The current presidential race is completely insulting my intelligence. I just feel at any moment, someone is going to pinch me and awake me from this dream. First, I am to believe that a man from the same political party as the current failure of a President, a man who voted with this President over 90% of the time, a man who fails to acknowledge that the current economic crisis is a direct effect of the poor leadership for the last 8 years is suppose to be the next best leader. Yes, I'm suppose to believe this man will provide some ounce of change to this country? Secondly, I am made to believe that an unknown women with less than adequate experience, unfamiliar with foreign polices, Energy possessed, mother of 5 1/2, and articulates her messages on an elementary level quoting Starbucks cups and using slang and southern jargin is going to run the country God forbid something happens to her running mate. Really?! Seriously?! I am insulted when I hear her speak, if I wanted to hear a "homegirl" regurgitate facts about the one subject she knows and completely ignore the other questions and issues, I would call one of my own girlfriends and even then, they are all more articulate than her on any given day. When I watch a debate, I am watching to be informed and enlightened on subjects that matter to the American people, I expect to hear facts, actions plans and I expect it to be delivered in a professional manner not as if I'm at a school PTA meeting. Speak to me as if you are qualified to. It is our duties as citizens to educate ourselves on the issues so when they are asked serious questions, I expect serious, educated and professional answers and not to be insulted as if I didn't realized Energy wasn't even relevant to what was just asked! If people would just put politics aside and look at the character facts of each candidate race and gender aside, we will be able to see that this has got to be a joke. For all I'm concerned the elections should be held on April 1st instead of November because then this would all make sense!

Do As You Will.....

When two people meet and decide that they want to pursue a friendship or a relationship they both know that it will take getting to know one another well before it will even go any where. It is true that we'll all bring some type of baggage to the next stop, whether used for guarding our past broken heart or sharing some experiences that helped in the past as well. The thing I hate the most is when a person says or does something and then tells you that they don't usually do that. OK, it could just be an announcment giving you a little more inside info on them but if said continuously then its simply irritating because what you did or didn't do in the past is irrelevant to me right now in the present. My thoughts are that people do what they want to do and most of time there is some type of the self-fulfilment out of it anyway. So if you have never did something in the past and now do it for me, thanks because I would like to think you are doing it because you want to and that should be the end of the story. No one comes with a rule book so we should do or don't do what we feel based on that individual and not what we are use to or have always done in the past. What you don't do might just be something that I'm use to or vs. versa so it should all depend on the person and timing. As for me, my actions will always come from a place of self-love first and not self-sacrifice for someone else's selfish desire.
