Regret

Misty Copeland by Unknown artist Regret /r ɪˈɡ r ɛ t/ Definition ; feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over (something that one has done or failed to do). Why does this word of an action drill such deep guilt in our minds. No matter how much we learn to live with it, why does the anxiety of the event live in our minds rent free.  We all have regrets. No matter how perfect you may believe your life is, sometimes    memories aka over exaggerated flash backs caused mostly by overthinking, lead us to believe that feeling of I shouldda, wouldda or couldda done things a lot differently. Ok maybe we could, but we didnt! So lets move along.  Shout out to Beverley Knight for that banger  🙌🏾 We usually have regrets of things we wished we did better. Decisions we wished we took with more thought and advice. We look back and think how different our lives could be if maybe we took a different route but thats not how life works. Unfortunately we cant edit out the stuff we aren't proud of like

Carolivia Herron - I Love My Hair  A dedication to my Mum.  I know I say it everyday, but mum I love you and no matter how much I say it, I will always love you more than that.  As of late, I have become more reflective and grateful of the time my mum and I are spending together. I’ve found that our bond gets stronger everytime tragedy or adversity comes to us in life. I will always remember my final year at university. Having the death of your mother, my nan, to contend with aswell my year final submissions of subject assignments and dissertations. You never left my side. You came with me to my Uni tutorials and personal advisor one to ones. Coming to think of it I some how I smuggled you onto campus and you patiently waited and encourgaged me to carry on through the stress of it all. Looking back I dont remember asking how you were. Knowing you, it was probably because you are and were evidently selfless and you thought more about me rather than yourself during t

Black is Beautiful!

' Black is Beautiful'   So I am back with an unapologetic post and nothing that I am about to say is up for debate. I've really struggled in the last few weeks to be inspired to write about something that really touches my heart and that I feel needs to be heard but today it came to me.  On Monday 11th May 2020, I was racially abused for the first time in my 28 years of existence. Shocking? A little. Surprised? Not really. It's 2020 anything goes. Both my boyfriend and I were exercising (literally, no pun intended) our human right to cycle free within the guidelines of the government during this restrictive time of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Let me paint the picture for you.. So we were cycling through a known area to us, on to traffic. So we were on the pavement on the right hand side and the cars were driving up the left. We were coming down the hill where it happened not fast but quite quick and then all of a sudden I heard a deep male voice

First of all, I need to give props to Alicia Keys for making these three words touch me in ways I never knew words could. She’s recently released her own autobiography called More Myself. I downloaded the audiobook and honestly it’s amazing. She is a force! Check it out!  Its been a while since I last blogged but at least I left you with the abundance of positivity that Kizzy gave to us all.  Leading up to and before that blog I don’t know why but I just entered this writers block. Yes its real guys. I had it. I just couldn’t think of anything to write. Well its not that I couldn't think of anything to write but i just couldn’t articulate anything that I was feeling. It’s been a really weird time I'm sure some of you have felt the same way too. How can something I we cant see cause so much hurt and pain. You know who I’m talking about. Covid-19 aka Coronavirus.    Oh and guys can we just acknowledge how the weather has been flirting with us since we've
