My Bleeding Heart.

Valentines-Day

 

Dear Readers,                                                                                                                                                    Valentine’s Day the day, some women hold men hostage for “A RING,” and a few women will receive roses that will dry up and die. Some women get excited on Valentine’s Day because this is the only day out of an entire year when their partners make an extra effort to express love. Women need to discover their worth and stop determining their worthiness by other people’s opinions. Women must understand the value of self-love rather than waiting for a man to show them love. We are more precious than any DIAMOND RING, and our inner and outer beauty surpasses the life of any ROSE. Many women believe Valentine’s Day is that one special day to express love. Actually, it is another commercialized day to encourage people to part with their money all in the name of “Love.” On this day of “Love” women, have unrealistic expectations that they think will last a lifetime. They are not solely to blame for their behavior. There are women in  society who have not received the proper guidance from their mothers because they lacked knowledge and guidance about self-love. Hence, the cycle of women participating in dysfunctional relationships continues because no one has taught them how to break the “generational curse. “Read “The Waiting Game.”

One woman’s journey of heartache and brokenness to healing and redemption.

Is your partner asking you for Space?

relationship-myths-busted-1021x500

Dear Readers,

In today’s society when people mention the word SPACE while engaged in a relationship, they tend to have a negative view about the meaning of your partner wanting space. I interrupt space as a need for a time out or a mental break. This time out or a mental break doesn’t have to have a negative impact on the relationship.

Watch my video and tell me what you think about space in the relationship.

Relationship 101

Dear Readers,

How often have you asked yourself this question, What happened to my RELATIONSHIP/PARTNERSHIP?

what happened after the first encounter, hook up, attraction etc. How long has it been since you thought about the attraction between you and your partner?  When was the last time you sat down with your partner and walked down memory lane to discover how the emotional disconnect became complacent…….I  have observed an increasing number of couples, who seem to exist in a relationship that is centered around raising children, paying bills, careers and acquiring an education resulting in the death of the relationship due to neglect and emotional disconnect. So the partnership dies. And the individuals except this death of  intimacy of the partnership as fate.

On Being Mom

myboy

Dear Readers,

Last night changed today. Let me explain. Yesterday, I created a to do list for today. One of my goals for the New Year ( 2019) is to plan and stick to a daily agenda so that my tasks do not pile up and overwhelm me. I received a call from my daughter in law telling me that my son (my only child) at the age of 37 had a heart attack. I eased myself to the floor while I listened to her relay the events of the day that resulted in her calling for emergency assistance. My immediate concern is for her and my three grandchildren because my son is the rock of that family, and their three children is the center of his life. Mothers are never prepared for these type of phone calls. Making this situation more complicated they live in North Carolina, and I live thousands of miles away in New York City. My first instinct is to pack and get moving, but my daughter in law communicated that my son said for me to stay put until they have information from the doctors. She continued to assure me that he is receiving good service and that she would not leave his side. So, I must stop pacing and wrenching my hands and make good use of my time by sticking to today’s schedule. My son is my biggest fan and supporter of my journey  of becoming a writer. Through all of life’s trials’ and errors my son has been the best miracle that’s ever happened to me. I make myself better so that he has a mom that he can be proud of. So, today with a lot of prayers, tears and positive thinking, I push on…….

The Sins of a Woman

Dear Readers,

This video is in response to a podcast I listened to on You Tube-titled: Why?  Distracted women Discourage men. The speakers did not answer this question. instead, they place blame on women for broken relationships and for men leaving their homes. I was insulted by the old school think that women have stepped out of their roles and are in direct competition with men. The male speakers also concluded that women who declare themselves independent by acquiring a college education,  high paying job, purchase their own home, and raise children without the assistance of a man,  they find fault in what many women are choosing to do. I challenge you to listen to the podcast and come to your own conclusion.  Thank you for watching.
