Random Musings: I am NOT my Skin!!

Standard

This was on my heart Today and I felt compelled to share: It may trigger some and perhaps inspire others but it is my TRUTH! I Am NOT My Skin….

My Human experience is not limited to or defined by the color of my skin. As gloriously beautiful as my sun-kissed melanin-rich brown skin may be it alone does not inherently decide my path.

My exquisite brown skin, while divinely designed, determines not my Value, my Character, my Future, my Creativity, my Intelligence, my Beauty, my Strength, my Ability, my Courage, my Contribution, the expansiveness of my Spirit, the depth of my Love, nor the Capacity of my Mind to manifest. It is not the sum total of My Worth! To think otherwise diminishes the potentiality of the Powerful(l) spirit that is Me.

While those things may be influenced by the multitude of circumstances and experiences that I have been exposed to, many beyond the scope of my control, and may shape my journey; they have absolutely NO POWER to decide my ultimate fate. That decision and choice reside only with ME!

I will not perpetuate a spirit of hate or fear, nor support instilling a complex of inferiority or victim mindset. I will not villainize or condemn all of the other beautiful shades of the rainbow due to the crimes against humanity inflicted by some beings colored in that shade.

 
Nor do I subscribe to inspiring an over-inflated stance of superiority or sense of entitlement based solely on skin tone into the hearts and minds of those whose skin is painted a brilliant shade of brown or any other shade for that matter.

Yes, You Matter, and You Matter, & You Matter simply because you “ARE” & you “EXIST” because you woke up this morning and YOU ARE HERE!! Because you are a Divine Being finding your way through this Human Experience ….Not because of your color, your system of belief, your race, your religion, your sexuality, your economic class, your education, your size, your history, your culture, your relationship status, how you live, how you love, what you eat, how you speak, where you were born, your challenges, your maltreatment, your triumphs, successes, or failures…but for no other reason than You being YOU!!!

I will NEVER give my POWER to BE Any and Everything that I dream and desire over to some preconceived notion or stereotype of who I Am or ought to be. Nobody that has come, is here now, or will ever Be gets to determine my Journey but the GOD in ME!

Outside factors may provide a palette of colorful experience but I and I alone get to paint my world and I choose to paint mine POWERFULLY BEAUTIFUL while proudly donning skin in a Beautiful shade of Chocolate Brown!!

Random Musings: Just like that…..

Standard

I saw You

The other day we were talking…business or maybe something mundane. Honestly, I do not remember the topic of discussion.

All I know is that something washed over me and, like magic, in that instant I saw you. Like really saw you for the very first time. The sadness in your eyes and the beauty in your heart. The essence of you spilled out and beckoned to me. It stirred my spirit and now…..

What now????

to be continued…..

Random Musings: Marriage is a Business

Standard

marriage

MARRIAGE (be it traditional, open, common law, alternative etc.) IS A BUSINESS…(I know that doesn’t sound romantic and people don’t like to admit or acknowledge this..but it is a fact.)

So many people seem to have missed that part and we often do not rear our children to view it as such!

The partner you choose, can make or break the outcome of your Life…Your health…wealth…DNA…spiritual, physical, emotional, & mental well being are all impacted by whom we choose to partner, reproduce, or parent with.

LOVE is an important component of marriage and if nurtured it grows with time… but it is not the only ingredient required to have a successful marriage or long term relationship!

I want to create wealth, raise strong and intelligent children, manifest my dreams, grow spiritually, and build a strong and stable connection as well as an empire with my life partner…There is indeed a BUSINESS Aspect and Mindset required to achieve this.

You must align yourself with a person that desires these things as well…not doing so can and often does create a rift (an opening made by splitting or a pulling in opposite directions) and oftentimes holds us back from living our best life.

Should you love each one another? Yes of course… And that love & trust should continue to grow stronger and stronger. But ultimately Marriage is a Partnership…The teamwork aspect is Pivotal. Sharing Common Goals, Mindsets, & Outlooks is paramount to success!! A strong friendship and mutual respect is the best foundation to build a solid relationship upon.

Marriage is BOTH Business and Love, but LOVE is not the only or sometimes even the most important aspect to focus on when selecting the right LIFE PARTNER.

You can LOVE someone and they still may not be the most wise or healthy choice for you as a Life Partner aka “Team Mate”. It all depends on what your desired long term outcome is.

Love is part of what you need to make it work but in no way is it ONLY what you need.

Random Musings: A Moment of Transparency…

Standard

paradox

Moment of Transparency: There is truly only 1 man I have ever been in Love with. I have liked fondly, cared for, craved, and had love for others but only one has crawled into the deep recesses of my heart, soul, & mind and stayed there.

I still love him to this day and if I am honest am still “in-love” with him too. I will always love him, at his best and at his worst. I think it’s because I see him clearly for who and what he is….not just an ideal or a representation of what I wish him to be. He is amazing and awful at the same damn time…lol.

He has made me smile, laugh, & blush and he has also made me cry. He has made me feel beautiful and like I don’t matter. He is all that I wish a man to be and many of the things I can’t stand. He is free like the wind and often an island unto himself. He is giving and selfish, kind and cruel, open and secretive, honest and a liar.

He is a paradox but if I am honest I wouldn’t want him to be any other way.

It’s easy to believe that if only “they” would be just what you want them to be that life would be perfect and so simple but the truth is that loving him just the way he is has forced me to explore and understand Me. Pushed me outside of my comfort zone and made me accept that at the end of the day I, and I alone, hold the key to my happiness. (not another being, not a relationship status, & not who loves me in return.)

He is my Soulmate and I love him with all that is in me but he is not my man. I do not belong to him and he does not belong to me. Our connection is not always rainbows and butterflies but it is honest and it is real…and it is Beautiful ~ Twin Spirit
