Sunday Quotes!

Today’s quotes are from Ntozake Shange

“Where there is a woman there is magic. If there is a moon falling from her mouth, she is a woman who knows her magic, who can share or not share her powers. A woman with a moon falling from her mouth, roses between her legs and tiaras of Spanish moss, this woman is a consort of the spirits.”
― Ntozake Shange

“let her be born / let her be born / & handled warmly.”
― Ntozake Shange, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf

Life and Value

Hello all, how’s your weekend going? I have a writing prompt tonight. I wanted to share my thoughts about my values.

What do you value most in your life?

The things I value most in my life are:

Number 1- I value God. Without him nothing is possible and without his guidance don’t know who I will be or where I would be. Having faith always.

Number 2- I value my children and my family. I feel like my children saved my life in a way. Also changed my way of thinking and living, they made me grow up. Quick (LOL). They keep me on my toes and focused at all times. And I feel sometimes without them I would have given up on life a long time ago. I love them so much. Grateful and thankful for my children and my family as well.

Number 3- I value my patience, how far I have come, my passions. Also, me accomplishing my goals and dreams.

Number 4- I value my determination, my drive, my strength. Always pushing through no matter what. I value myself always going after what I want in life.

Number 5- I value life overall, things that I have, I value life even with the struggles that I have faced in life. I am still here fighting,

I value all those and more. I am grateful for all that I have especially the little things, and what I don’t have.

So, question my blog peeps.

What do you value most in your life? Care to share? Do you like writing prompts?

Blessings and Love 🖤🤎💛🧡💚💓💗

I know who I am and what I want in life

No

I will no longer accept anything less than what I deserve

I know how I love and what I can offer

No

I will not give in and be someone I am not

I will not be treated like trash

I know who I am and what I want

Standing tall and facing all

I will be a better me

Yes

I will be better than my past, the old, me

Grown woman here, who goes for what she wants

I know who I am and what I want

Its me its who I am!

Jungle

Awaken in this

Jungle

Too much going on

Not sure as to what I am seeing

Pinching, slapping myself

Is this a

Dream

Maybe reality

In this jungle

I feel free

Moving around, being me

Accepted

Is this life

I ask myself

Talking and chilling with

The animals

Friends or foes

I do not know

This jungle

Feel right, Safe

Yet scary

Am I a human?

Maybe a lion

Again, is this a

 Dream, a reality

The jungle

Wild and free

 No surprise

The jungle

Is just like

Me.

Chilling

Me and my new peps

No cares in

This jungle          

I am wild and

Doing me

I get along with

This Jungle!!!

-Blessings and Love-

Thank you for reading.

T.O.L- 2P’s

Patient, Positive

Learning day by day to think and to be more positive and patient. I used to think that if I had an idea and start working on it that things will happen fast or what some will say happen overnight. I have to take my time with things to make sure it is done right. No rushing it, but my patience is not good. Lol, I get so anxious and then get angry. Instead of understanding that some things take time and patience is a virtue.

Glad that I grew up and now fully understand how patience and understanding can go a long way. Same with being positive at times I used to think the worse instead of having faith the situations will work out. To make it in life you have to grow and learn as you age.

Taking the necessary steps to learn new things and at the same time learning more about myself I say is making progress. So proud of myself I have come a long way. Though still an overthinker I am working on that next. One step at a time. One day at a time. You can overcome your past and certain situations. Think positive, have faith, have patience.

I am just thinking aloud. Thinking about how I used to be compared to now. I love the results and am happy to share even though I am kind of rambling lol. Progress, and still learning and growing. Love to all who support.

Love, Peace, Happiness, and Blessings
