The Moment I said, “I Do”

No, I’m not speaking of marriage, I’m speaking of self-acceptance. The moment I said, “I Do” (to MYSELF… to ME) I set myself free from the ghosts of the past. I said goodbye to those people, places, and things that no longer brought happiness, joy or added value to my life. The moment I said, “I Do,” I allowed myself the freedom to fly … my wings no longer clipped or damaged from hell’s calamitous storm. The moment I said, ‘I Do,” I released those inner feelings and emotions of guilt, shame, defeat, and hurt.

Ahh! It feels so damn good to be FREE … Ahh!

I want to scream right now … shout from the top and the bottom of my rattling lungs. I want the world to hear my freedom. I want the universe to feel my thunderous stomp … feel my heels hit the pavement as I celebrate the moment I finally stated, “I Do” to ME! I finally accept the woman I have become and the woman I am destined to be.

Release your fears! Part your lips and say with much virgor, “I Do!”



Happy 1 Month Bloggerversay to Me!

IMG_1449.JPGI accomplished a goal this year … I wrote it down and made it happen. Regardless of where I may stand in the blogging world (being that I am new and an unknown blogger), I am ecstatic and full of joy. During my “one woman show” here on WordPress, I unearthed a stream of wisdom (experiences from past relationships and encounters) and created a few real-life sagas (displaying a slight comedic flair). I am most proud of one of my biggest accomplishments … Blogging from the heart.

You can do anything you desire to do! You can fly with the eagles … You can travel around the globe … You can love without fear! Carpe Diem!

I would like to sincerely thank those who have taken time out of their lives to visit my little community. It is still a work in progress. It’s a sense of relief for me … it’s like therapy.

Exciting things to come for 2015! I shall take this divine gift to unknown heights. This is only the beginning with no room for the end. Feel free to join the Dateless in Carolina family!  Like! Follow! Subscribe! Comment! Send a Sista on a Blind Date!


Give Back

There are billions upon billions of people and other living things that reside in this place we call … HOME. The world is composed of women, men, infants, toddlers, teenagers, canines, felines, insects, primates, and so much more. We all saunter the fields of floral beauty … eat from the garden of eternal youth … inhale the scent of the earth (lumber from the eldering trees, rain from the Cumulonimbus clouds, smoke from a chimney, a sweet and supple scent from a youthful and colorful cluster of pansies). We all tend to give and take from the earth … the one place we all call our safe haven.

We must learn to share our plentiful supply of every day necessities (tangible or intangible) to those less fortunate. Once (or twice) a week I encourage you to GIVE BACK. Give from the heart and ask another supporter to do the same. If you know of someone having a challenging day, send an email, write a short and sweet note (Your day will get brighter, You’re Awesome, Be Encouraged, Smile, You’re Blessed), or give them a call. If you know of someone needing a hug, HUG THEM. If you know of someone needing advice (that doesn’t require professional guidance), SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE. If you know of someone who just needs to talk, LISTEN WITHOUT JUDGEMENT. If you have a love for animals, visit or volunteer at a local animal shelter. If you see an elderly lady or gentleman needing a helping hand, reach out to assist them. If you see someone struggling to open a door, OPEN IT! There’s truly no limit to what you can offer the world. You are giving back to the earth what it has been missing for centuries … LOVE, PEACE, HAPPINESS, HARMONY, and GOODWILL.

You never know when you may need that one thing you offered someone else. Lend a helping hand to someone less fortunate. GIVE BACK! BE A HERO/SHERO!
