Springing Forth Fortitude


Peace & Grace to you My Lovely & Beautiful Shugas,

With spring quickly approaching, the tradition of spring cleaning came to mind.  During my childhood, it was a ritual that when spring made its opening act, spring cleaning commenced.  With the new season of warmth, cool breeze, new blooms and blossoms of the newness that once was dormant and in hibernation now springs forth, the actual New Year truly begins.  With that concept being ingested, I am noticing the fall of pollen and signs of a new season peeking through each day as the calendar strolls along.  With this very idea in mind, it’s time to clean the cupboards, closets and corners and realms of life as well.  Anything that resides in your life, be it people, old skeletons, outdated mindsets and/or expired rituals that did and do no help to your progression, pull it out, pack it up and let it go. The cob webs that chill in the corner that con you to cling upon your old ways and mindset of settling and just dealing with the acceptance of it all, dust it away.  Fear and procrastination may continuously call you like unwanted telemarketers, but Shuga, when you identify it, block it and proceed with your cleaning.  Take inventory of people, habits, routines and the aura that is your halo.  If those variables, don’t fit, interrupt and/or cause interruption in who you are working on becoming and stunts the growth that you are seeking, shed it, let it go, wipe it or them away and start fresh, new cycle, new day, new season.  Let the spring fever began and may new blossoms bloom with greatness manifesting an awakening of a better and brighter you!!!

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you, Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.




Winding Route of Wisdom, Yielding To Awareness


Peace & Grace to each of you my Beautiful Shugas,

Ever feel as if you’re in the race of your very life and so much traffic is clouding your view from the finish line, your clear view of seeing, the road ahead to you destination…Oh the turbulence and tumultuous winds and various speeds can cause your flow to slow quickly hault or in fact  force you to yield. But sometimes it’s necessary to pause and regroup… Overdrive provides no rules and no safety… Drive cautiously and beware of weather conditions and traffic flow of the obstacles and test thrown in your route.  Be aware of the speed too, as you cross various lines…. Lines being different realms of atmosphere and folkx surrounding you… Always proceed with caution… One may not receive a manual on overcoming strife and struggle and dealing effectively but lean into the median of wisdom and Divine guidance.

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.



Draft of Devotion, The Definitive Fine Line



Peace & Grace My Beautiful Shugas,

Self-gratification is but a mere act of braggadocios boastfulness.  Sincerity is sweet in its sacred silence and in the application of its acts some that are random at times.   We are not granted gold stars, plaques and trophies for performing tasks for others as if it were a race.  In fact those with true love and genuine concern do not “perform”, but rather willingly aid and bless others with the intangible as well as tangible.  The good in heart truly does for others “just because” and for the love.  Pride and purpose drafts a fine line between the spirit of one’s acts and character.

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

Tapping Into Your Warrior Worth


Peace & Grace Beautiful Shugas…


We all have a variety of giants in our lives.  Giants being those people, those obstacles or those situations/circumstances that attempt to hold precedence over your hopes, dreams and aspirations.  Those blessing blockers, dream crushers, and hater stompers, but there comes a time when you activate the power within and utilize those gifts, your resilience and valor and don’t forget fearless mound of determination you swing with a mighty force and slay those giants… Swing until they fall Shuga.  With every fiber within you, swing with all strength that has been placed within you.  Don’t resist and never waver to fear and/or doubt…Unleash your persistence full force.

Love  & Blessings to you, you and you Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

Life’s The Lesson: Live It, Learn It, Apply It


Peace & Blessings Beautiful Shugas….

One can never and will never reach the state of knowing all and everything.  No one is perfect and although we stroll this earth in wonder of how to constantly perfect this life of living, growing and searching the when’s whys and hows of this life, we must ingest one simple concept. Just as the sun continuously revolves around the planet so does the learning one shall do every day.  Never be so boastful and egotistical that you know absolutely everything thing.  Reach to your elders even when you feel you sort of kind of know something.  Age and wisdom and not to mention experience can teach one far more than books. But the common denominator is knowing when to sit back and allow one to school you and you be the student of life and soak up the smallest lessons that mound up to a worth of wisdom.  You are never too old to learn nor too young to teach.  We are all teachers and students in our own rights if only we humble ourselves and let the lesson flow and know when to “begin” the class and when to “attend” the class.  Humility can carry one a long way. I choose to have perfect attendance in the homeroom of humility, what about you????????

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.classroom
