Rate “Me” – Healthcare

Written by  Life Coach Carioca Da Gema   As far as service goes I do not anticipate much from a doctor’s office visit. I figured “no expectations no disappointments”. But to have a doctor with no personality ask me for a review, floored me. Many doctors are miserable.  They are either struggling financially to […]

Late Night (after Li Po)

The moon smiles upon my bed. I consider frost and ice, and raising my head, the bright sky. Lying back, I think of home.   Once again, I’ve attempted to shiver myself into a timeless piece. I can only hope that my version does not offend.   The transliteration from Chinese-Poetry.com follows: Bed before […]

🌹🕊HAPPY EXISTENCE TY-TY🕊🌹

A year ago today, I lost my best friend, William “Tyrone” Murphy. Family called him Ty, I called him Ty-Ty.
This man had my back ALWAYS. He was my best cheering section, and always encouraged me in my endeavors. When I needed financial backing to start my business, he was there. Even when I wasn’t making money, and even family laughed at me, telling me I wasted my Stimulus money, Tyrone had faith in me & was always a voice of positivity & encouragement. He was the first person to encourage me to write my first book of Poetry. He loved me dearly and treasured his family. I will never forget him. Rest In Love Tyrone, til we meet again Shawtay (his nickname for me).

*Special thanks to Denise Murray (Tyrone’s Sister)for providing pictures. Tyrone always said how much he loved you ever so much, even when he did silly things. We often laughed, how our sister’s had the same name. Love you Ressie🌹❤🌹

🌹✒YOU DIG DEEP✒🌹

“NO MATTER WHAT THE OBSTACLES ARE? YOU KEEP GOING.”

Have you ever had obstacles in your way? Lol! Of course, who hasn’t? So, I had a pipe burst, that took 2 weeks to fix. Of course the fixing came, the 2nd day, after I hurt my knee & couldn’t walk for 2 days. So Thursday I was immobile, and Friday, I had construction going on in my home – in my bedroom closet, and this weekend, my Sister has been caring for me, like a newborn babe – I LOVE YOU DENISE!!! Did I mention the physical pain I’m in? I’ll be missing my Niece’s graduation tomorrow, because I can’t physically be there, but thank goodness for live feed 😍. Lol! Maxwanette how can you laugh? Lol!!! How can’t I? Crying, screaming, and yelling will only make things worse.

I’m limping, and at times, the pain can be excruciating. I can’t bend my knee, and I’ll be in the doctor’s office soon enough for an X-ray or MRI, this week. How, I’m  going to get in a vehicle? Lol, a whole other story. I may need an ambulance. So, I’m working from my bed (I blocked the book I’m working on publishing this month – It’s a surprise, lol!) Am I some kind of super human? Lol!!! Nope! Simply focused on my purpose.

I don’t want anyone feeling sorry for me. My reason for sharing this? See, life happens and things occur, preventable or not. You can do everything right, and the rug gets pulled out from under you. You can be in a situation,  not of your own making. You may even feel trapped. Pain, losses, unexpected events…My point? The negative outcomes are what they are. But you have the power to still find positivity. DON’T GIVE-UP OR GIVE-IN. You dig deep within, remain focused, and stay on your path. Heck my loves…YOU GET CREATIVE!😉

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! And as I always say…

🌹🌍”We’re All In This Thing Called Life, TOGETHER…Remember?”🌏🌹

“Namastè & One Love”☀️❤💛💚☀️

YOU’RE THE SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

You are my loving mother
And the mistress of simplicity
You are the treasure of love
You are dreaming
Beyond my imagination
I want your love
If I born at the next birth
I’ll be your son again
You are the achiever
Who carried and brought me up
You work both day and night
Without expecting any Rewards
I always pray that the God
Showers his grace for you
And keep you with good health and wealth
Pardon me o mother
If I have made a mistake
You are the only one
Who forgotten your boredom
And comforted me when I was anguish
And found happiness in my smile
You are my source of inspiration
And source of every victory
Words are not enough to describe
And this birth is not enough
To pay off your debt
I’ll born again, I’ll born again.
