we’ve fist bumped
screamed at each other
held on tight through the night
cuddled me to sleep, speaking sweet words of comfort in my ears
when i fall, hands stretched out, to pick me up
we’ve danced like crazy
arms flaying in the air, with abandon
shared jokes only we understand, hollering with laughter that comes from deep within
my worst, always there, just sitting and listening to me as I scream obscenities, sometimes, screaming with me too
held me as i wept
my good, right there too, cheering me on, prancing up and down with excitement, shouting so loud with pride
whatever name i call him/her/who/whom
he, she, man, woman, lover, friend, papa, mama, brother, sister, air, fire, water, nothing
filling me up
in the stillness, in the chaos
“The more you talk about it, rehash it, rethink it, cross analyze it, debate it, respond to it, get paranoid about it, compete with it, complain about it, immortalize it, cry over it, kick it, defame it, stalk it, gossip about it, pray over it, put it down or dissect its motives it continues to rot in your brain. It is dead. It is over. It is gone. It is done. It is time to bury it because it is smelling up your life and no one wants to be near your rotted corpse of memories and decaying attitude. Be the funeral director of your life and bury that thing!”
― Shannon L. Alder
“The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.”
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF SO STRONGLY THAT THE WORLD CAN’T HELP BUT BELIEVE IN YOU!
walk into any room and OWN THAT SPACE!
that’s not arrogance baby, that is CONFIDENCE!

Dreaming is never enough! You have to take the first step even if it means stepping out of your comfort zone.
Procrastination kills more dreams than failure ever will. Trust me! I know! I’m still dealing with that evil habit! Deal with fear!
Fear is the BIGGEST obstacle to pursuing your dreams. It is crippling and will steal your dreams from under you- you won’t even know when it’s gone. Fear makes you tell yourself that you’ll go after your dreams when you have acquired more skills, or more money, or more time, but the truth is, that will never happen. Only when you can finally move on from your fears and recognise how it is holding you back, then can you begin to move forward.
Ask yourself this question,
“What Would You Attempt to Do If You Knew You Could Not Fail?”
So what are you waiting for? Take that first step today!
