Egypt English - LoveTrips the Tribe - Loveologist Artist Poet Model - Weight loss

What’s your secret? Diet? Exercise? Lipo? …eh Baggage Claim…^_^

Every old face I encounter asks me in some form or fashion where and how I abandoned 80 pounds and slowly counting over a course of a year. I have no fancy regiment to deplore—no magic wand to wave, no distasteful diets or strenuous workout plans to hand out…my apologies, but so not sorry. No, I simply left all of my worries, stresses and extra weight at baggage claim—marked it carry at your own risk and replaced it with my light.

Following the Wrong Illuminated Rabbit

Many of us find ourselves in the most perplexing of situations—racing the person or persons next to us toward success. Others, like myself, have found themselves running full speed into a corner racing the infallible time—self. Both destinations lead nowhere near our true destinies, but very far down a rabbit hole never meant for us to journey. See, I could never beat you in a race to success, because your final destination will never look anything like mine, and vice versa. And no matter how many times I set and reset my clock for daylight saving time, the Sun will never rise or set any sooner or later than the Great Hand wills it to do so. At the end of this grand ‘ole race to judgment day, I am only concerned with which version of myself makes it across the finishline—I who feared running with the bull inside of me or I who took her by the horns and leaped far over those black and white checkered squares into the great beyond. #checkmate

Egypt English - Loveologist, Artist, Poet - Baltimore, MD - Piscataway Country : Re-Drowning

Re-Drowning Myself

Mirrors are fluid and dark. Beneath the liquid reflecting glass is a dark basin. Far below this surface is where I found all that is truly I: you will find all that is truly you—waiting. At the lowest depth of the sea—the place where no sunlight strives to reach there is earth …and there is also life. In this darkness there is no light; and yet, life is created daily, and it thrives for years and years and years with no ceasing—some life far beyond antiquity.

Running Bases From the Light

Have you ever stood in the mirror and tried to convince yourself you are no longer who you were—and that you are who you are now? If no…well, I encourage you to try it at least one time. If yes…then you know how difficult it is to abandon all of the pre-established misconceptions, beliefs, and fears that you have so inconveniently harbored—especially when you’re standing face to face with the first person you owe unconditional accountability…running from home only to return home.

Dead horses, the unconventional…& diamonds cut from blood | #BrokeandBougie

Okay, so back to “How to live a fun & lavish life on a low-low budget?”

My intention is to always look my best and always be an unapologetic reflection—representation of my own light. Thus, I get to pick and choose at my own free will the trends and fades I indulge in, the places I go, the events I attend, and the spoils I spend my hard-earned coins on. Despite the fancy high-end price tags for generic sweatshop manufactured pieces and the glitz and glam of flashy lights, I choose my lavish.

LoveTrips - Nightmare Before Christmas - Sew It Up

You’re So Worth the Stitches and Duck Tape

You’re a fighter
Weapons from somewhere higher
They light up when you’re closer
If God says it’s not over… 

—”Over” – Kirk Franklin

Yes, I know—
your life might look pretty fxcked up right now,
but it is your beautifully crafted screwed-up life—and you’re still alive to live it…so get up, off your bum and on to strutting with your head held high: makeshift bandages,
dusty stitches
and whatever else it takes my Loves! Continue reading “You’re So Worth the Stitches and Duck Tape”

LoveTrips BLOG - Forget about God

Forget about God…

…for a moment, and look at yourself in the mirror as that which you truly are: god-in-body—being-in-flesh.

Think of your Provider as your individualized higher self. I mean seriously, how else would the Almighty be able to keep tabs on all of us unless She/He/They left a bit of peculiar divinity in each of us…You and I—one-half Human, one-half God-being…woke or slumbering—eh, still God. Continue reading “Forget about God…”

Live light, travel light, spread the light, be the light.

freeing Egypt

Everything is so heavy these days—food, baggage, rain, relationships, crime. corruption, burdens, thoughts, pressure for change…the potential of this list. Yet, much of what is heavy is neither filling nor even necessary. Most of the time I dare say we simply get so used to the heaviness, and we force ourselves to pretend it is okay and that we are indeed content with this heaviness.

#Teaspiration Thursday | The Art of Pricking One’s Distal Phalanx

He who wants a rose must respect the thorn. —Persian Proverb

Egypt plucks with no tea in Her cup to sip.

It is pure naiveté or neglect of truth that would lead one to believe living a good life is to live a life without unfortunate events, Without dark clouds and rainfall how can you truly say you love the sunshine. And without blinding sand storms how might another take delight in the majestic vastness of a seemingly endless sea of golden crystals.
