Time Don’t Chill On Layaway

Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones…

This is not quite a repeat of an earlier blog post but for some reason, the word “time” just kept ringing in my ears in constant repetition after an earl y conversation with a friend. The truth of the matter, is “time” waits for no one and not only when I awake in the mornings, but more so when I walk into work, I am reminded blatantly —- that time goes on with or without you. It doesn’t matter what you do, don’t do, think about doing, want to do, act like you gonna do, talk about doing, Well, you get the point, it waits for nothing… It will and shall continue to tic on…. So, you ask, “Monique”, what are you speaking of, well what I want to plant in your mind, spirit and very being is this… If there is something that you feel you should be doing, need to do, must do, DO IT. If it’s been placed within your spirit and well-being to do it, well then Shuga, be proactive and move.  The last song you wanna be singing as your personal hymn is the Should Coulda Woulda  selection. In the words of Rafiki on Lion King, “it is time”.  There’s so much that we must be and should be urgent to do, rather it be for you or for the simple purpose of bettering mankind and your surroundings.  If you need to write the book-write it… If you got a song- write it and sing it and share it… If you got a word to share and specific folks come to mind-tell em. If you want to bless someone, just because-do it. Now don’t get it twisted, this is not a post about good deeds, it’s simply about staying aligned in your purpose and all in the Divine’s time and will. With that being said, that art creation of Salvador Dali with the clocks comes to mind… But I challenge you to not being guilty of those constant tics and tocs to tic away precious time of LIVING and not EXISTING with your “time” on this journey… So Shugas, let that simmer in ya soul a bit and I dare you to have a good ole day with ya blessed self… Love GOD and tell someone you love them…Smile at a stranger and radiate some joy along the way..

 

Love & Blessings

Steeping In YOUR Truth

Peace & Grace to you Beautiful Beings**

I know it has been quite some time since my last bloggISODE. But trust me as we all do, sometimes you gotta take some time and be one with self. Down time, “Me time”, you know quiet time. I must say slipping into some sweet solitude from time to time brings clarity and oh my gosh the peace that just lingers in your midst leaves such an aroma of AHHHHHHHHHHH.. Simplistic splendor, I tell ya. Now with this being a brand new year, ooooooh, my its not the only time to start fresh and begin new things, because we need to honestly conduct some self-service on ourselves ever so often just to fine tune yaself. If you got time and make it a priority to get your oil changed, well, Shugas “never” forget to continually fine tune oneself. You know, such things as, what do I need to tweak, change, eliminate and maintain doing for and with myself and my life… I can’t stress enough you must always keep your garden pruned, not your literal garden, but your individual garden of life, your circle of friends, your inner circle, your atmosphere, your routine, your mindset. If it favors a weed, two words Shuga, PLUCK IT and throw it out. Only enrich your inner-self and life itself with the fine fertilizers of life and the vitality of watering it, metaphorically speaking, life and continue growth on this journey we call life.

So, I had the opportunity to attend and participate in a life class recently and oh my, in the midst of hearing mounds of momentum that just had me on the edge of my seat, a few thoughts came to me and I felt it necessary to share this one. “Steep in your Truth”. For those that are true tea drinkers, you know there is an art to making tea and the unique authenticity of indulging the tea is to feel that soothing blend of herbs and warmth that lubricates from the tip of your tongue to the base of your belly that just comforts you. But the important part is that your water is hot and that you dip your tea bags in a specific method which henceforth is the steeping process.  You don’t just drop your tea bag in the blazing water, you dip it initially after you pour your water in. Immerse it in the water and pull it back. That initial contact with the heat and the herbs releases all those essential flavors. Repeat this twice and then slowly stir in your additives, honey, cream or sugar… At this time you can sip slowly. What are you saying Monique, well dear beautiful one, here’s the concept I want to enlighten you on. We reach a point in our lives where we must be true with ourselves and strip ourselves down and look in the mirror and see the being we are. Embrace all the ingredients that make up your personal recipe. You must be honest and even in your quirks and sometime not so cute aspects, but these are the flaws that we all have, because Shuga, no one is perfect. Look at your scars to remember from what a ways you been and how it shaped and molded you to be the better you, that you have become. Smile at yourself and love on yaself because you are a seed of the Divine and he don’t make no mess. J But what I want you to know is that the moment you begin to not only live in your truth, be real with yourself, BUT when you steep in your truth, that’s the moment you sit back and really allow oneself to commune with the most high and to be one and truthful with yourself, and I’m telling you, life becomes this compass that has clear direction on where to tread.  Truth begins with you and acceptance of yourself.  Don’t drown in the lies and fantasies that others, media and even some time you paint for yourself, it’s just an illusion. Slip into the truth and allow it to maturate you on an entirely new level of growth in another arena of LIVING and understanding. Steep in ya truth shugas!!!!!!!!!

Until next time, love God and tell someone you love them. Bless someone with a random act of kindness and create an infectious spread of positivity and kindness.
