Retired Crutch

For so long I took pride in being the glue that kept my family together. I took pride in being everyone else’s crutch. Took pride in being the one that was always there for everyone. But just like every intensive spot, over time there will be damage. Ligament tears, shoulder replacements, knee replacements. Being so…

It’s Okay to cry..

The older I get the more I realize just how much of a sensitive person I am. I use to think I was so “hard“. Never allowing myself the time or opportunity to ever get a good cry out. To this day I think of crying as of sign of weakness sometimes, even though I…

Exit Left

Sometimes I can see myself completely removing myself from society. Not for a very long time. Just long enough to actually miss it. Society is draining and I’m just not sure how cut-out I am for it sometimes. I cringe at the thought of the smallest human interactions. I would miss my train stop to…

Monday, April 2nd

This Monday I choose to STOP. Just stop for a minute, a minute to just breath. Stop when I get overwhelmed with my students. Stop when I get overwhelmed with the adults at my job . Stop when I get forget the BIGGER PICTURE, and let the temporary situations and stresses get to me. Stop…

Trial and Error

Wouldn’t it be nice if someone¬† would just tell us the way. The decisions to make. So we wouldn’t have to go through the trial and error periods. Periods of uncertainty and fear. But there is Greatness that lies in those moments of uncertainty, right? The Greatness that comes from it. The Greatness that forms…

Where you at Love?!

I am ready for a new love, A love that is ready for all the love I have to give. And ready to give me all the love I deserve.  

Embracing the “Difficult” Days

This transitional phase that I am in, that I am going through, has required much of me. And some days I embrace the transition and openly welcome the changes, the changes to come. Other days, the difficult days, its a little harder, and my pep talks get a little stronger. I just tell myself, remind…

Loosing my “Save-Away” Husband.

In high school, I met Reynaldo (a black boy…it doesn’t matter.). Reynaldo fell in love with me from the day he laid his eyes on me, either in a math class I was already failing or maybe on the cafeteria line as I appeared disheveled and flustered. My normal everyday look¬†throughout high-school. Either way, in…

I said it Before. I’ll say it Again

I say this all the time but! Ohhhhh how people settle Tisk Tisk Tisk Society should begin putting a stigma on those who settle! You leper you! If you settle…You can’t sit with us. So Stop settling for bullshit jobs Stop settling for bullshit relationships. Stop settling for bullshit anything.

Patience.

There is more to come. I am Frustrated because I want it NOW. But, Patience is a Virtue. And nothing good (amazing) comes out of something rushed. So, while I am frustrated with the daily bullshits of work, or if it’s my living arrangements or wondering if I need to switch over to the other…

The truth

My students are beginning to catch on that I hate being their teacher….lol…it’s the truth! Spawns of Satan

This Week I plan to….

This week I plan to take a step back, and really evaluate the situation: Stop assuming the world is against you. Start assuming the best. Be ready to defend yourself, but lets not always be ready for a fight. If you feel as if you said too much on a subject, and you’re still going….
