Each heart


As well as our own.

Knowledge brings

Truth to our existence

Having faith in our thoughts

Resonates in our actions

Occasionally we can be

Utterly unjustified in our actions, but

Gaining wisdom from them with accountability

Have tremendous effects on our realities. 

     Being able to cipher through the muddled airwaves of today’s perceived tragedies and grievances is exhausting and pretty depressing at the same time. Which is probably its sole purpose.


     When we are being bombarded with images of hate, death, sorry, pain, uncertainty, doubt, and separation, we need a way to decompress. For me, I’ve found that living my day-to-day life with a purpose to make my country, my world, and my life better. What does that involve? Well, the better question could our should be who. It involves my three children. They are the future and it is imperative that they realize that life is a game. You must be able to know the difference.


     My first breakthrough, sort of speak, was when I was in high school. There was this girl in school. I had no true issues with this girl, however, my friends (clique) did. They had an extreme dislike of her, over a guy, of course. Aren’t most fights in high school over some girl or guy?


Well, her locker was next to mine and one day she flat-out asked me,


“Celeste, do you like me?” I quickly responded, “No.”

I wish I’d have thought before I spoke. But, whatever now, it’s done.


I went back to my crew and explained to them what happened because they saw us talking. I told them what was said and to my utter shock their response was the following; “You says that?” “We don’t hate her, we just don’t like how she acts.”


I was like, Sigh, really, you guys always have something to say about her DAILY?


So, I go home after school and think on my actions of the day. I drew a line in the sand with someone I had no beef with. I was completely and utterly, in the wrong here.


What I learned is that too live Free is to live on my own terms. I allowed the beliefs of others sway my decisions and I wasn’t raised to be that way. So, I had a choice to make, continue on This path, or strive to be better. Needless to say, I chose the latter. It was too late to make amends with the girl, but it’s cool. It was a lesson for me to learn. My breakthrough.


This is why we must do everything we can to live free and love each other on purpose.


If you have seen tv lately or have scrolled down yourFBb timeline you’ll see many instances where love or God is missing. We get what we give out of this life. I knew that one day I’d have to pay for that high school remark. I did, and I understood why it was happening to me.


Learning that nothing happens without reason was and is my breakthrough. For every action there is a reaction and we have no way to control the reactions of others. So, it may be a better solution to control our actions that will enable positive reactions.


Thanks for reading.


  1. I don’t have the ability to be blunt with people. I don’t handle confrontation well so I avoid it. I often find myself worrying shout other people’s opinions of me though.

  2. I love the post and learned from it. I am going through rough path nowadays. It may be a better solution to control our actions that will enable positive reactions. I like this one. Very well said.

  3. have always been known to be outspoken and I say what I feel when I feel it. I have a strong personality which other people tag as being “arrogant.” I am not! I am not one who would hide my persona just to fit into the “norm.” I respect others’ opinion of me, but that does not dissuade me from living the life that was written for me. God has a plan for each one of us and we must work to surrender to His Will and trust in His Wisdom.

  4. find these problems are especially magnified when social media is a part of the mix. For myself .. I see how easy it is to get sucked in and start to worry about the opinions of others and what everybody else is doing. When it happens I stay offline for a few days until I’ve re-found my center
