Senseless Society

Oblivious to the pain they cause because their hearts are guarded like a cemented wall...

Instead of selfless actions, we are left with less of self because inside they are bitter , confused, & alone ;although outwardly they appear to be big, bad , & strong.

I wish that cowards could put down the guns..
Instead another Mother is left without a son...

To the drunks.... I wish you’d think before you get behind that wheel...

We know your intentions are “never to kill”
;yet with your wayward thinking & drunken cloudy thoughts ,
In just one instance your actions have caused one dreams & ambitions to stop...

To those of you in an abusive relationship; know that abuse comes both physically & mentally.
Know that what you are enduring is far from the norm & there is never nothing right about someone causing you harm.

Hands up,don’t shoot...
Me being the mother of an African American young man....
Me having brothers,a dad, & other friends..
I refuse, I won’t & I can’t be mute..

Blue lives matters... Black lives matters...
Truth of the matter , All lives matters..
But we have got to be real & open our eyes to the unfairness, the injustices  & unnecessary deaths....

To those experiencing thoughts & feelings out of the norm....
Please know that you are loved & needed.
Seeking  help & counsel is here for you....
So please, do not do harm....

This world is cold & fast & will make you feel worthless....
But I pray that my memo gives you strength & let’s you know that someone cares & I’m praying for you to be your best!

The many Me's of iMe™ “MOM”

 As I relate to iMe™  and look back over my life. I am amazed to find that at different times of my life, iMe™  has a similiar yet different meaning and/or connation.
Of course, it will and will forever mean I'm Me as my brand. However, iMe™  as a teen looks different as iMe™  as a mother.... .
Today as a mother , I'm Me still holds its role as being that authentic individual I express with the iMe™  brand.. However, sometimes as  mother, we need to be reminded that we too can place on ourselves the role of being that imperfectly perfect mother... We take on so many roles and most of the time those roles are inadvertently taken on because no one else steps up to the role or no one gets it done like us.
Today as a mother, I am tired & realize that I can't do it all. I won't do it all, and most importantly,
I don’t have to do it all.
Even though me doing it all or at least most of it makes me feel more accomplished, cause let’s be honest , can’t no one do it how we do it how we do it .🀷🏾‍♀️πŸ™ŒπŸΎ
     One of the must haves that I’ve added to my calendar over the past years is a “Me Day.”
“Me Day” is a day where I do nothing. No work.. no chores... no cooking... no cleaning.... Nothing.
I sit , relax , and mostly just lounge and catch up on one of my shows.
It’s not much but it’s just enough for me.
I’ve slacked off on my  me days in the latter months but I have done better with getting them added back to my calendar . πŸ—“
This month my girlfriends and I are catching a movie for my me day.....

So, Mom’s, what I am saying is , don’t forget about you in the midst of everything else!

Be blessed ladies!

My Beauty is Deeper Than What You See

My Beauty Is Deeper Than What You See 

You will never amount to anything!! 
It’s about time something bad happened to her!! 
Oh, it’s all over now!! 

Your words have cleaved to my mind & have elevated my ambition to climb…. 
Your doubts gave me the utmost determination to prove to you that your 
words repel me like an invalid conversation.  

Through the good & the bad, the ups & the downs, 
I refuse to give up & drown… 
I refuse to be who or what you say I am!! 
My God has never left me. 
It is he who has given me the strength to excel 
& with him, I can never fail… 

All of my life’s lessons have molded me for today… 
And it is now & today that I stand up & say that 
I am not who you say I am…. 

I am wonderfully & fearfully made… 
My purpose is not your purpose.. 
Because my purpose is to uplift & uphold,  
In spite of how you treat me… 

My purpose is to motivate & help alleviate other’s struggles  
& to remind them that through God all things are possible.. 

The possibilities and the limits that you have placed on me, 
Obviously never offended, nor distracted me.. 
The pot holes that were placed in my life, 
the obstacles, 
 the valleys, 
 the back stabbing with the knives… 

You might want to rethink me & get your mind right 
Because I can & I will do all things with Christ…. 
This beauty of mine is much deeper than you can see…. 
It’s a total reflection of where God has brought me…

If I Could.....

If I could take back the pain that their words and remarks caused..I would...
If I could pierce their souls with hurtful words like they pierced yours....I would...
If I could protect you from the world & all the evil it entails....please know that I would....
Instead..I'll remind you of your beauty...both inside & out...
I'll remind you to stay confident & never have a doubt.....
Some people are sad,lonely, & depressed & the only thing they know is how to suppress....
So I'll teach you how to win mentally & how to fight back purposeful & successfully.....
I'll teach you how to be a winner within because if you're strong & sound inside & within ,then that is something that not everyone can contend...

Kicking off Women's History Month with Mrs. iMe™

        As I drove home from work this morning, I was inspired to share this blog.
I listened to 97.9 The Beat radio host Veda Loca share her experience of dealing with depression in regards to not being there for a family member. I listened to her pour her heart out and share her pain.
My heart immediately went out to her as I too can relate. If you listen to Veda Loca, then you would know that she is always in an upbeat spirit. You would never in a million years guess or think that she was dealing with some of the feelings that she discussed. Sadly, as women, we do tend take on a lot of things and never really truly express our innermost feelings or struggles because it may just be that we are looked upon or expected to be there for so many people. For me ,my truth is that I am dealing with everyone else, helping everyone else, being there for everyone else, that I sometimes forget that I can't do it all in my own strength that I sometimes attempt to do.
     As  mothers, sisters, aunties, ...WOMEN... I feel that we deal with so much and we do suppress our true feelings and put on our "happy face." We take on so much and honestly people may never know what and how we are feeling internally. I myself have been there and can relate. Me being the outgoing, motivated,overachiever that I am have always desired to seek out new things &  new opportunities ; rather it be in my career or in my personal life. I am not one to to remain complacent and not seek change. I look forward to seeing and learning new things. I look forward to helping others. I look forward to wanting more..  I look forward to growth......
        However, while achieving these goals of wanting more, I have felt torn in being there for my family.Working overnight, I recall getting off at 7 am, making an hour drive home from Dallas to Lewisville, taking my son to mother's day out for 4 hours so I can try getting sleep for the next shift that night, only to wake up to find I have slept past my alarm and my kid is the last kid getting picked up AGAIN because his sleep deprived mother slept past her alarm. I remember how horrible of a mother I felt. However, my husband and I chose to move here with no family & we were determined to do what we had to do for our kids. I have had career decisions that would definitely affect my time and my interaction with my family and it is for sure a hard decision to risk not being there yet also knowing that the sacrifice will be for the better.
    As the years have passed, I have definitely seen an increase in alpha females and women taking more leadership roles,and I agree that it can be a challenge at time.... So today I want to give a huge kudos and a pat on the back to WOMEN!!

   don't forget to take care of you in the midst of taking care of everyone else.....
   don't forget that you too are human and you can't do it all......
    don't feel bad if you need help.... we were not meant to do it's ok to ask for help.....
    recognize when you are burnt out.....

I am looking forward to the celebration of Women!! Be Blessed!

Such a simple word.... but such a hard action for some....
You would think that as you age, then automatically you would "grow.."
Yes, physically we do grow; however, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually some of us do not grow.
Growth is so much more than the physical.
It really amazes me how some people remain "stuck"
The harder thing is that we sometimes allow that person to keep us stuck as well.
We patiently wait for them to grow....yet as we wait for them... we become.....stuck as well.

It is so hard to let go of something or someone who has been there with you while you have grown;however, we have to wake up and realize if this person or thing is allowing us to grow or causing us to remain "stuck." Secondly we have to let go of the blame that we are leaving this person behind. Nooo...that's not true. You are not leaving the person behind. That person is leaving and has left themselves behind. To some this may sound cruel, but please know that I am not saying you get where you need to be and leave them high and dry. No, but what I am saying is that you can love someone from afar. You can pray for them to grow, but you don't have to hinder your growth because someone else doesn't recognize your worth, his worth, or her worth.
I've learned to say I love you but I love me more. If  I am not where I need to be mentally and spiritually, then I can't perform at my best. I can't be who or what God has called me to be.
I can't be there for someone else if I am not there for me........

It really saddens me to see someone with great potential and not perform at their best.
It really saddens me to see someone with so many talents not use them....
It really saddens me to see and know that some of us are so afraid to grow.....

Pieces of iMe™

Just wanted to elaborate on the different pieces of iMe. To be exact, I want to elaborate on how the most important pieces of my life relates to iMe.

iMe in reference to my son.....
Well , there are so many things I can say about this , but to keep it sweet and simple, I will chat about the two most important to me. The face that my son is a young, african american male should say enough. Some challenges I have seen is that he is not expected to be as articulate as he is.
What the what??? YES... I said it. Just because my son actually enunciates his words and expresses himself in an articulate manner does not mean he is "weird" nor "acting white" so he  has been call. I actually wish society would teach more of our young men to be articulate. The other issue/challenge he has is that he is never expected to be as mannerable as he is. The thing that I always get is "oh my gosh, he has such great manners" or  " you all did a great job with him"... THANKS.... I guess. I never knew if this was a compliment or not . Is anything less expected??
 Anyhow, I let me my son know that he is imperfectly perfect the way he is...not that he has ever doubted himself, but society can make you  or break you ,and I wanted to be sure that he was not broken. I want to teach him to be confident in himself.... in spite of  what others may think of him.
He's a pretty Dope young man and he is totally secure with who he is.
