Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!

If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time. And two little babies in an incubator, their hearts will beat at the same time. Love that. So if you have somebody in your life that is prone to anxiety, like myself, and if you happen to be a calm person, you could come up and hug me heart to heart and my heart hopefully would slow to yours. And I just love that idea. Or maybe yours would speed up to mine. But either way, we’ll be there together.

I received a text from my mom the other day, saying how proud she is of me for following my dreams, and how far I’m gonna go with my art. It’s funny how life goes, sometimes you don’t realize where you are in life. 

Tonight, I’m sitting here listening to “Promises” by Jhene Aiko featuring her daughter and it hit me. It’s a really beautiful song. It’s amazing how music can make you realize and feel so much. I’m so blessed. My parents believe in me, they trust me up here in a big city, alone on my own, to follow my heart. Thank you Mommy and Daddy. I love you so much.

" I’m gonna make you so proud. You don’t ever have to worry ‘bout me. No, you don’t ever have to worry ‘bout me. Promise I’ll be alright, promise I’ll be alright. Wish that you were here now. I’m missing you right here but, Promise I’ll be alright."

Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think.

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.

I have a desire for every inch of you. The smell of your breath on my needing lips, the taste of you under the covers, and your voice rummaging through every vein in my body.


At forty-four minutes to four
An angel walked up to my door
Opened the windows to my soul
Told me he thinks that I should know
That there’s no slowing down
As the globe spins ‘round and ‘round
You gotta keep going, gotta keep going
Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
You gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
You gotta keep going.

If there’s one thing that I learned
While in those county lines
It’s that everything takes time
You have gotta lose your pride
You have gotta lose your mind
Just to find your peace of mind
You have got to trust the signs
Everything will turn out fine

So why aren’t you smiling?
