The message of year 2020 to me.

Maybe easy isn’t always the right route, maybe we should consider the hard route, hard route may make the journey hard and long, but harder may help us get the full details of things, help us grasp the meaning of life and heighten our understanding of things, the reasons and appreciations of it effect, hard way might be the easy way.

Year 2020 might have come with wallop of occurrences, so overwhelming we are left to make choices of our lives, but this time nobody is at the advantage point to make a choice better choice, a choice they’re certain that its 100% perfect, nobody can boast of being sure, not even star gazers, fortune readers, tarot actors are certain of their predictions, year 2020 left us all to doubting our strength and abilities.

But if there is one thing am certain of that i learn from this year of war without guns, bombs is, “VALUE” we are all so lost that we so obnoxiously oblivious of good things around us, good things that is within our reach, but we choose to give attentions that which doesn’t need our attention, we waste our strength to things that doesn’t need it, lifting things that doesn’t need to be lifted, but 2020 has been an eye opener.

The message is;

Nobody is ugly

The saying “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,” goes to say that defining beauty can be tough. However, God’s words can lead us to discover what our individual meaning of beauty truly is and should be; that is deter from looking at physical appearance for God looks at the heart in all people and things. Use these Bible verses to find the real beauty in yourself, others, and what surrounds us.….Unknown.

The problem starts when people only define beauty by physicality and there is more to that than they fail to realize or rather too obnoxious to see and admit it. for mostly the saying is all influenced by culture, religion, class, races/color.

Listen.

She’s crying, everybody wants to cheer her up, in all attempt but proves abortive. She’s overwhelmed by whatever is troubling her, sometimes I feel people trying to stop her from crying aren’t just listening to her, they’re not understanding the message she’s sending, they all just want to talk.

On privilege and disadvantage : some personal reflections

Sometimes we’ve got to go in deep, deep at that place in our heart where we feel safe to be able speak out and share things to get that certainty that we’re in control of our lives.

Emerging From The Dark Night

Some times I look at all I own materially and consider how lucky I am to live in a town free of fear, stealing and violence and feel so privileged.. its hit home in past weeks with all the brutality and violence as well as calls against oppression in American and even here in Australia, how lucky I am to be able to walk out of my front door not fearing for my life. That said I have also known moments of the deepest despair and lonelieness in my life, times when internally I was in a dark place thousands of miles from home with no loved ones close, wondering what I was doing going on that search to separate and find myself..

Let's Talk Love

I have been struggling for a copy of weeks on what to blog about. With the recent events that have been occurring; I have been numb and completely mentally drained. As a African American woman, I have encountered racism and sexism in every form and on every level imaginable. To be constantly view just by the color of your skin is the must degrading feeling. If your not black; you have no idea of that feeling or the turmoil. As much as I would like to overlook the fact that there are still people in this world that can hate you merely by the color of your skin; there are constant reminders that these people still and do exist.

The killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, rocked the Black community. I remember refusing to watch the video that was circulating throughout social media of a white officer putting…
