I stand in front of the mirror weeping. Weeping because what I see I don’t like. Weeping because I finally understood that I had the power to change yet I didn’t. In life I allowed the hurt and pain others caused to limit me in so many ways. I allowed the fears of others to make me doubt the power God gave me to be who HE created me to be. Today I take a deep breath and have the courage to change some things.

What you see isn’t what I see.

The smile on my face is sometimes just a cover so you can’t see the struggle, the fear, the pain that I face every day. I chose to release so many years of disappointing myself and begin to forgive myself. I did my best with what I had and knew. I can’t go back and change anything. I forgive myself.

I close my eyes and find peace.

As I sit on the edge of my bed, I close my eyes and let the tears rolling gently down my face. I allow the pains of the past go. I release everyone who mishandled me in any way. I forgive. I found my peace.

Let’s move forward together.

Time to allow love to find us. New love. Vibrant love. Our love. Learn to embrace yourself. Your whole self. We will journey through this thing called life together. We will love each other and be the light that God has called us to be. We will move forward!

Much love,

Black Mama


I absolutely love putting it in writing! When I write I release a part of me that was hidden from the world. For years I would only write to help me navigate through this thing called life, however, writing has become my closest friend. I am a self-published author with a desire to help people know there is always HOPE. Hope for a better tomorrow, hope to live another day, and HOPE TO KNOW LIFE DOES GET BETTER. To my readers, I say "Live FREE and Die WELL" (Quote from the Rock in the movie Scorpion King~lol). Hope is always found in letting go.
