Looking for love?! Look No further..


We must learn to love ourselves before we can love another.
This is a well known fact now.
Knowing our self worth is so important.

So many times in our life we search for a partner, someone to love us, someone to make us happy. We walk into relationships searching for someone to complete us.

We come with our baggage, we come with our expectations and with all these needs. We come and unsurprisingly we eventually have to leave.

Should we not be going into a relationship already happy, already whole. Should a partner not bring additional joy to your life, not the only joy.

At times we get into relationships, two broken beings feeding of each other’s soul. Two stagnant souls you’ll be, stuck in a rut trying to fix each other.

Instead we should focus on being happy whilst single. When alone; this is the time to learn to love yourself, learn to respect yourself, find out what makes you happy, be happy, motivate yourself, dream big, get out of the bed in the morning for yourself. Focus on being the best you.

If you do this, you will not worry about being single, you will not worry about finding a suitable partner. You will understand there is no need to worry.

When you both do unite, you will help elevate each other to the next levels in your lives. You will enhance each other’s happiness. You will build together, you will inspire each other.

Does this mean we have to be perfect before we enter a relationship? No not at all. We just need to love ourselves.

It sounds so basic, but sometimes we don’t realise we don’t love ourselves, until we start loving ourselves.

An open letter to my Brothers & Sisters.. 


A system set up to fail you
Trapped by the cage they built
Man made, institutionalised lies filtering through the generations
Pigeon holed but you can not see
Believing what you’re told 
Not seeking for yourself
Conforming to your stereotype 
Stereotypically blind
That’s what they hope 
We make it so easy
We must learn our history as to understand the power we hold
A powerful people not weak as portrayed
Educated folk not senseless as they report
Self taught. My brother and sisters.
Our history did not begin at slavery. 
A Rich land. We were more
Can you not see, you are more, be more.
Rosa parks, Selma to Montgomery, black power, I have a dream
Black lives matter, panthers, emancipation proclamation 
Is it all not the same thing?
How many fought before 
Injustice, equality, freedom
It can not be in vain
How many live free? Subconsciously mentally enslaved. 
Barely living but barely surviving 
Enslaved by failing systems, falling right into the trap
Rise up, wake up we are a powerful people

Control Without Control


Last night I wrote what i considered to be quite a good post, that’s not to say it actually was though. What I usually find is the pieces I put effort into and really think about no one usually cares about, most people prefer the raw uncut stuff which just naturally flows from within. So after pressing the wrong button and deleting the whole post without a backup I decided it was probably for the best. Don’t get me wrong immediately after I was fuming because who knows what the heck I wrote?! Trust me there are times I read back something I wrote and I’m amazed because I literally don’t remember writing it. Most of the time when I write I’m literally just relaying one of the many trail of thoughts I’m having at that time. Once I have them they are usually gone forever unless I’ve written it down.  

Anyway so last nights post was me talking about control, basically how we always want to feel like we are in control. No one wants to be seen as weak. I think we’ve some how developed a some what primitive almost arrogant I must be in control way of thinking. I’ve realised this need to always be in control can have a negative impact on our life. We have to be able to recognise when we need to let go of some of that control. 

Giving up control at the right time to the right people or situations can ultimately help us gain control. Having the humility to recognise this is what separates us. 

Control is just an illusion. Think about it we are never really in total control of anything. It’s this thinking that we are or can be what is usually our undoing.

You can still be in control without being in control. Control is just an illusion.

Rose Tints or Dark Shades?!


Is it the way we look at things
Straight line linear thinking
Open box, out the box or no box thinking
Rose tints or dark shades
Glazed eyes tear stained
Mouth wide open eyes shut closed
Speaking before we see
No lights stumbling in the dark
Is it the way we look at things?

Let’s not underestimate the power of momentum. Sometimes we have to just run with it. 

At times we think everything has to make perfect sense and we need to know exactly what’s going on, where, why and how, micromanaging trying to plan out our every step of our lives to a t. Life doesn’t work like this, it doesn’t always go to plan, sometimes we need to spend less time on devising a plan or understanding why and just act. 

Me personally I’m someone who is forever in my thoughts, the scientist in me is always looking for an explanation, always trying to grasp some sort of concept and make it make sense when in reality some things need no explanation, not everything’s has to be picked apart looking for an answer. Living in your head being in your feelings constantly doesn’t bring us any closer to our goals. The deepest thinker who doesn’t act is simply just that, a deep thinker. Thinking is all good and dandy but a time comes when we have to use our momentum to keep acting. 

Run with it. Whilst you have this momentum keep going. Along the way there will be a few potholes in the road to try and make us loose momentum but we don’t have to take the bait, jump over those holes as if they wasn’t even there and keep going. 

Momentum. Full steam ahead.
