Breaking News: Simple Words

life-love-quote-quotes-textography-Favim_com-339393

As a writer, I love words but I’ve found that simple words convey the most powerful meanings. ‘I love you’, ‘I hate you’, ‘you’re wonderful’ ‘you’re stupid’, ‘pretty’, ‘ugly’ etc. Choose your words carefully. Say what you mean and mean what you say and don’t say it, if you didn’t mean it….keep it simple!

Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie

 

This is not what Rosa Parks fought for.

fair and lovely, lovely and fair
a magical elixir
selling itself as a boon
to hardfaced queens of misfortune
killing the dark skin
nurturing a whole new white
which is celebrated by men and women alike
no one questions the plight
of little girls, born with a color as dark
as that of the black clouds
pouring rain from their eyes
when they see themselves in mirror
discriminated, neglected by
the society which creates and nourishes
skin whitening brands in its womb
spreading threat to all those
who fail to follow the rule
that is if you’re pale and white
then only you can charm and entice
the men who are blindfolded
and brainwashed into believing
that white is good, black is evil
so all these darkfaced queens,
fueled by the world, go onto hating
the god given gift of beauty that have.

[Fair and lovely is a cream…

Books are uniquely portable magic  
                                                                  – Stephen King 

Traveling is awesome and exhilarating experience. Going to great places and seeing the vastness and wealth of nature never fail to amaze me. Well long distance travel is often boring especially if you do it alone. Travelling alone can be challenging. Spending time with oneself will teach you a lot about yourself. 

I hate sitting idle and while travelling there is ample time to do nothing. Reading is the best option that I love. I generally buy new books before a journey and read them though out the journey. 

Books are my best friend and the best part, reading the book again always reminds me of the trip I read the…

Words!

thCA0RURDK

Never underestimated words! They have the power to take a life or save a life.

Never underestimated the power of imagination, it’s what gives hope to dreams! It’s the basis for a foundation to be built. Our imagination encourages us to go further and reach higher. A word written or spoken makes it all tangible and achievable.

Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie

Breaking News: Patience Needed

patience-quotes-2

Hurry up and wait! We’ve all heard that before but what does it mean. There are things in life that we anxiously await. Relationships, a big event, a new car or home something that gets us all riled up.

However, patience is a virtue to be learned through practice. We want people to be patient with us while at the same time we’re impatient with someone else.

Waiting can be tiresome and tedious but if we learn this virtue the time invested will forever be invaluable.  So, exercise patience when the opportunity presents itself. One might consider patience to be a sibling to self-control. You know self-control, the ability to control yourself and your actions.

Instead of rushing into things, slow down and take a step back. You might just realize there’s really no need to rush you’ll get eventually! You just might be better prepared for it when you do.

Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie
