Breaking News: Simple Words

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

 

Breaking News!

Love is on the rise as it searches out broken, lonely, wounded, scared, discouraged, angry and bitter hearts to pour itself in. We’re asking if you or someone you know is in need of love, let us know immediately! No-one should be without love.

Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie

Lonely People

It’s said that some of the loneliest people are in a room full of people but no-one can see their emptiness inside. They feel like they are on a road with no-one and no help in sight.

They smile and laugh but inside they’re crying out for help. Maybe the obstacles they are facing require more strength then they have or, the burden is too heavy for them to bear.

When discouragement and depression comes they can become vulnerable to suicide. Not because they want to die but because they can’t see any other options.

The tunnel becomes real as it offers a light of hope that they can escape the pain and torment. The light promises a new beginning someplace else or at least the end of suffering.

Lonely people can be anyone at any time in any stage of life. Reach out to those you see in need. Take the time to listen to their heart because you may not ever get another chance. Don’t brush aside their concerns because it seems insignificant to you.

Remember, we are all unique. What you can handle, I may not be able to. What you easily brush off may feel like a heavy weight to me. What may seem like no big deal to you is everything to me!

Love is real and powerful. Show more love in your words and actions to those around you starting today. Listen to someone ramblings; you just might help to save their life.

Hugs and Love from me to you! Valarie

 

Nobody’s Child!

Nobody’s Child Nobody’s child is who I be. Nobody cares or even wants me. Alone I sit in this room, Feeling sad, hopeless, and full of gloom, Waiting and hating the end of the day, When no one will come and take me away. Silently I’ll cry deep inside. All my disappointments I’ve learn to […]

Good Morning

Good morning everyone! I would ask, ‘What do you see?’ but instead, I’ll tell you what I see. A reason to be thankful for all that I have.

These young mothers and children snuggled close together would be a beautiful site if it wasn’t for their situation and surroundings. It doesn’t matter if it was bad choices on her part or unfortunate circumstance. Too many people today would see this pic and start posting cruel, racist and heartless words. Is this a sign of how society is becoming self-absorbed? Has the heart and love of man indeed grown cold?

Regardless, poverty has faces and affects all races.

All I want to do is reach out and hold them both and help them to make everything ok. I understand not everyone can be or wants to be helped but that doesn’t mean I can’t try!

I would rather they tell me no them assume and never try.

Hugs and Love from me to you! Valarie

 

Love from your heart, not from your head!

Let Love Rise From The Depth of Your Soul!

The Treasure Within

9a7585f8575f6639a2182355e04b7e70 shades of black_women

Black women regardless of skin color desire to be accepted for who we are inside and out. Unfortunately, in our desire to been seen, we have gone too far to fit in with others that we have lost ourselves within all the changes we’ve assimilated through the passages of time. From our hair, appearance, body type, dress, looks etc. we are constantly adapting to someone else’s perception of what’s acceptable and trying to live up to those standards and ideals of who we are and what’s best for us .

The reality is this, until we know who we are and how valuable, precious and beautiful we are, we will always feel the need to define ourselves in someone else’s eyes and live up to their perception of us. In the end we will continue to gravitate to cultural trends and video ideology, rap music and Hollywood for our identity.

We must learn to celebrate the uniqueness of our hair, skin color, and body type, etc. and not allow the pressure of negative stereotypes or type casting to dictate our actions and self-worth. Understand that our desire for attention plays out in our provocative dress as a means for getting it. However, there are far less self-devaluing and self-destructive ways to be seen and heard. Instead using our body, we have to learn to use our mind. We must find another way.

We are not ‘baby mamas, ho’s, hood rats, project chicks, BITCH’s, someone’s jump off, or something to do! We’re more than welfare recipient, lazy and trifling. Our darker pigmentation doesn’t make us ugly or undesirable. We don’t have to settle for being a chick on the side or one among many and…ALL BLACK MEN DON’T HATE US!!!

We’re strong, nurturing, inventive, openly accepting and creative. We rise to any occasion and do what needs to be done for your family and those we care about. We love deeply and wound easily. When recognized, we have natural grace and appeal. We must learn to walk with our heads held high with regal and queenly ease.

We must take the time to find ourselves again although for some it will be for the first time, but it is a journey worth taking. Remember, others will never see the true beauty in us until we do!

*Although I’m addressing Black Women, this can apply to all women!

 

Love in action – Loving yourself will make it easier for others to love you as well.

 

This was inspired by some young ladies who desire to see themselves in a positive light in a world full of negatives.

 

Reminders

-DICHO~1

Occasionally we need to remind others that they’re not alone! We never know what someone is going through because they always wear a smile. Perhaps things are chaotic and they’re barely able to stay afloat but still they smile through it all. Maybe they’re always mindful of others but no-one is mindful of them.

There really doesn’t need to be a reason to let someone know that you are thinking about them. Do it just because! Let me know that you’re here, you care and you miss them. Do it because you love them! Valarie

Love needs to be seen, heard and felt!

On The Edge

268159

When the trials of life takes you to the edge and you feel like you’re barely holding on, don’t give up!

When you’re barely holding on and another storm hit, don’t give up!

Just when you think you’re about to topple over, don’t give up!

Although the winds of life toss you to and fro, take comfort in the fact that you’ll bend but never break.

You may be on the edge, but if you don’t give up, you’ll see that you are deeply rooted and are able to survive it all.

Then again, you might be on the edge of your past looking out at your future but too scared to let go!

Hugs & Love Valarie

Enjoy Life!

Make time to enjoy life. It may never be more than what it is but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it! Small changes can make a big difference starting with perception. Instead of saying I can’t, believe that you can.

Love yourself enough to change your situation including the people around you. Be strong enough to say enough! Bold enough to press you way through. Confident enough to know you’re worth it!

Love in action – Show yourself love! Valarie
