It Can Cost You, But You Probably Don't Care

Severing ties because a person won't let you use them could possibly cost you one day. We've all heard the multiple sayings that exist which tell you how to treat people. You know, the ones that say the same people you pass going up you'll surely pass on the way down. Treat people how you want to be treated. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I have heard them all. More importantly, some of the people I've dealt with over the course of my life, probably have as well. However, some folk will continue to treat you any kind of way.

People are products of their environment which means what they see and hear may become them. If th...

Even in the mist of tradition you must reinvent yourself. You must reinvent your thinking and behavior not just for survival reasons, but for growth and relevance.

Happy Sunday!!

I could not decide what I wanted to write in a letter this morning. I decided to write about not being able to decide. Some days my thoughts are overflowing uncontrollably. And, attempting to take control of those days is like trying to shutoff a broken facet, with all the wrong tools.

A morning like today, my head is calm and still awakening in this moment. What then do I do? I embrace the calm not knowing how long it will last. I make the best of it with coffee and the most relax decorum possible.   

Peace and blessings,

A Snowy Letter For The Living

Yes baby, it's simply cold outside. As I watch the snow come down in Virginia and take a leap of courage to step out on my balcony, yes it is cold outside. The first snowfall of the winter , for me, is always exciting. I can never contain my enthusiasm.

Today, it's about movies, hot toddies and soup. Yes baby, it's cold outside.

Wishing you warmth,

2017 Letters For The Living

3/362 days is in the 2017 book. 362 days are remaining. Though three days are only a few pages, waste and procrastination can quickly become an accustom norm. The days will slip past you and the look back is haunting and depressing if not used wisely.
Don't let 3/362 become 362/3 and you have untold stories or incomplete pages in your 2017 experience of this thing called life.  

The Best,

Christmas Letters For The Living🎄

Three days until Christmas Day and I always feel like a kid again as we move closer to Christmas Day. The biggest difference as an adult is, you feel the exhaust of preparing all month to ensure your home exemplifies the feel and look of the season. I never understood, how much work my mother put into ensuring this time of the year was magical for me and my siblings, until I became an adult. I still can't fathom it on her level because her and my father prepped  the Christmas experience  for five kids.

I wish all families much needed rest and relaxation this Holiday Season. You will need it on December 26.

Merry Christmas,

Oh It's The Holiday Season

My favorite time of the year is upon us. I mean once November comes into play, it's the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is around the corner. And well, New Years is built on possibilities, promises and hopes.

I know for some, this time of the year is challenging and depressing.  I believe when the right people show up in your life or you take a positive approach in a new day,  happiness has it place.  I like to believe that people who are more challenging every other time of the year, finds something external or internal to guide them to a happy place, a jolly place.

You have to believe in something greater in order to renew your thinking. Beli...

Life Lessons For The Living

It is time to discover
It is time to uncover
It is time to rely
It is time to deny
It is time to share
It is time to dare
It is time to give
It is time to live
It is time to withhold
It is time to scold
It is time travel
It is time to dabble

We are all at some place at some point in life!

Participating in life,

Mel

Life Lessons for the Living

We intensely start our days with hopes of getting task accomplish left over from yesterday or starting new endeavors, leading us in tomorrow. Our direction each day brings us face to face with unbeknownst encounters which benefit us. Yet it is difficult to process at the moment.

Pablo Picasso once wrote,  "I don't believe in accidents. There are only encounters in history. There are no accidents." Therefore, I take my encounters with a grain of salt and never personally. It is then that I'm able to survive in the days of my life.

Xoxo,

Life Lessons for 2016

September has swallowed me whole.

The work
The requirements
The needs
The wants
The demands
The struggles
The relationships
The yes and no to situations
When will October drag me from the clasp of September's dark and demanding demeanor?

Forever,

I am life.
I am love.
I am warm good mornings.
I am sweet good nights.
I am fun times with family and friends.
I am cold ice cream and hot soup.
I am the late trains and early flights.
I am tattoos and mini skirts.
I am life diaries😍.

Chronicles of July

In the middle of a heated summer
In  the middle of a July celebration
In the middle of a late night slumber
In the middle of a delectable meal
In the middle of a heated discussion
In the middle of a dysfunctional moment
We realized that we are living life.

Life Lessons for the Living - My Past

I feel more disconnected from the people from my youth and hometown more than ever. The more I try to hold on to my past the more it slips through my grip. I've decided to loosen my grip and let the past fall into its rightful place.  I've decided to enjoy and embrace my current pattern in my life. No regrets with looking forward  without always looking back.

Forever today,

Life Lessons  for the Living

In affairs of the heart💗and mind, I write to say that one must be courageous. There  will always be an epic battle between the heart and mind. When you make a choice or choices using logic, the heart does not embrace it fast. It is my belief that is why sorrow lingers and heartbreak. Once the heart catches up to your logic of making a choice, then you can burst out of those lingering emotions.

Forever Life,

Mel👑

My heart is broken💔, but I'm not broken. Why does a broken heart 💔 hurt worst than physical trauma? It lingers pass seven weeks. It exist pass eleven weeks, which is way more time than it takes some physical surgeries to heal. You can't take a pill for it or physically stitch it up. All you can do is fight against the pain and not let it consume you. All you can do is stand on it with hopes of getting back to a more whole you.
