2018 Manifest

 

2018 the Year of Manifest

Each year we each embark on is always a year or something…either you fill in the blank, or you don’t, eh. Truth is often we do not fill in the blank, and we end our year with little to show because we neglected to establish a clear vision of all that we desired to see come to fruition. How much we neglected our past year will reveal its no or low hanging fruit come the dawn of the new year—our current year. Let this be the year you move and maneuver in such a way that you blink once and 2019 slows down to roll out a red carpet embroidered in golds and lined with silvers for You.

All that you do and neglect to do will matter, yet, not all that is done will transmute to matter, and still, nothing is ever truly wasted.

Yours in Love Truly Always Continue reading “2018 Manifest”

This Ain't No Thursday Tea - #TeaspirationThursday

This ain’t no Thursday Tea, but it’s a #BrokeandBougie Saturday brew full of Teaspiration for my Weekenders | #PickYourPotion

Taurus: Motto—I have.


 

Your wealth is always abundant now, in all that you currently have—not in that which you seek to obtain.

Love, E²

The latter…the thoughts of a wife attempting to find places for all of her artsy high-end fashion purses, pocketbooks, totes, handbags and all of the other lavishly bougie thrift store finds from all of those lovely days when King was like…”Wanna go thrifting today?” *hands over cash* “Knock yourself out Queen.”

The Art of Slowing Down in the Fast Lane—without breaks…

There have been many days we’ve been in the house together all day, immersed in our colliding worlds and it barely feels if we see each other. Then there are days He kisses me for what seems like every half hour or so, and yet still, I feel as though it’d never be enough. We don’t always agree on Netflix picks, and we rarely agree on the degree of cayenne pepper I should put in the tomato soup, but we can concur that it takes hard work, some sleepless and some restless nights, and countless seconds spent staring through our reality at the concrete we once laid today.

“Love has no fear and no vengeance.”
—Egypt sipping tea with the snifflies.

LOVE YOUR LIFE! I swear to you I cannot stress this enough. Love your greatness, and do not fear your mighty potential.

I do not care that you feel inadequate. I do not care that you fail to see that you have what it takes to receive all of your heart’s desires. And I damn sure don’t have a flying fxck to give about how many people told you that you would never make it, you’re chasing pipe dreams, you’re weird, you’re not the ideal candidate, you’re better off doing something normal, your dreams won’t come true, you’ll never amount to anything, you’ll change your mind when you’re older…

…and I still don’t give a… >>    PLEASE INSERT YOUR FXCKS HERE, ‘CAUSE I HAVE NONE TO GIVE     <<… about another Human Being attempts to block your light rays. Only you can dim your light. It is when you decide to turn out your own light that you find yourself in complete darkness.

Light penetrates all darkness. Love is light. Therefore, when your love is beaming oh so effortlessly and effervescently take some time to rest and bask in it, and do share it with all who desire to look upon it and/or follow it. Moreover, when those same old Once-Naysayers start to drift back into your space, do not seek revenge on them for their malicious and out-of-character attempts to derail your train; instead, beam a wee bit of your light toward them. Give them a beacon of hope, one that says “I made out of my darkness, and into the marvelous light of love and so can you.”


 


Maiiandostéka my LOVES!¡ — You all are awesomesauce, and I really appreciate all of the Loveology 101 love ♥  You all fill my heart with an abundance of sunshine, and I cannot thank you enough.

Tongue Ring Tricks

Tongue Ring Tricks

I like your tongue ring” —the five infamous first words spoken by Frank to me at a table surrounded by our peers;      the unlikely first impression that captured my intrigue and flung us both 5 years deep into a love we somehow managed, but could never have dreamt. Eh,          and now half a decade in, over a splurge of a dinner and some so-so drinks, I realized I was hoodwinked and bamboozled by the clever-tongued snake I call my forever-lover. Oh! but how so E? you may ask… well, my Loves I can change my tongue ring a million and one times in a day …a million different colors, patterns or shapes mind you…I could lose it and fail to replace it for two weeks or two months—#beentheredonethat—and would you believe this Man will never notice. . .

#Teaspiration Thursday | Call me Dumbo with the Ears

“Develop the power of listening”

—Egypt plucks: one shoe on digging in the teaspiration jar, 30 minutes late for the 9-5.


That little voice keeps bleating in my ear, “Wake up. You’re going to be late . . . your phone is still not charging . . . have you picked out your clothes yet? Frank’s already left, why are you reaching for him :-/?    That alarm clock does not work        c’mon E, we went through this yesterday . . . you’re killing me up here…”

When you focus on the power of listening, you don’t just stop at listening to other human beings. Pause on that.         No, we must develop the power of listening to other people, our own individual consciousnesses or higher selves, and our shared environment, the surrounding Universe.

Love, Life and the Pursuit of Happiness

LoveTrip to Sappony | Farewells, Best Wishes & Time Out with the Tribe

Think of it like this—two country bumpkins packing up life and love, tossing it all in suitcases and moving trucks, then traveling 10.5 hours from a world primarily composed of tobacco fields, farmland, and cow pies, to a world of big city skyscrapers and never ending traffic jams!
