Sailing Strategically



Peace & Grace my lovely and beautiful ones…

“Your inner circle maybe tight but the threads that make the stitches strong are the quality of the thread and how each needlepoint is carefully made is the importance of how it stays in place just as an intricately woven tapestry.”  ~1MOpoeticSOUL

With that morsel being shared, I am aware now that my circle continues to become smaller, but the quality vs. the quantity of those in it, pour soooooooooooooooooooooo much into me. I have one sister-friend whose words alone in one conversation, challenge me to tighten up and analyze and be a better me, the instant we hang up the phone.  Then there’s this brother of mine that each time we speak, he has no idea that he reminds me, that my dreams and aspirations can be more than thoughts but I can breathe life into what births within and my visions can come true.

Soooooooooooo, what direction you wonder doth I aim to on this little trip to GROWNville.  Well, my lovely ones, here it is.  As you continue to grow physically, your mind and spirit also evolve as you will and do with life experiences and applications of wisdom.  Although you may have intended some to join the caravan with you, sometimes, you simply outgrow some of those that you hold tight onto.  Letting go is not a simple task but often very necessary as you progress and begin to truly see the clarity in your life and how you choose to mold your ways of thinking.  True, your distance and slight sweet tug away may cause a little bruise to them, but if they truly honor your friendship and relationship and where you are determined to go in your life and within yourself, the acceptance should be worthy of simply respecting the “you” that you have become and grown to be in this stage.  If paths merge down the road in the Divine’s plan, so be it, but if not, you must continue to structure self and soar self’s spirit to fly the flight of the destinations and altitudes you feel within the “inner-you”.

Shugas, no matter the connection or who they are, never allow anyone to weigh you down from the light that beams directing you to your path(s) of purpose AND never allow them to fault or place guilt on you for choosing to LIVE instead of existing and being bombarded by their doubts of ambition or mindsets.

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


Psalm of the Oracles


Peace & Grace my precious and beautiful Shugas…..

It is simply ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhmazing how the spirit of the humble elders exude such a dynamic yet meek aura.  The spirit that lives within your inner most being most definitely speaks volumes and not one word has to be uttered.  I had the opportunity to assist and sit with an elder mother this past weekend.  With all the ruckus and confusion in the midst with heightened emotions all in the mix, just being in the company of a sacred and sweet soul, cooled me as cucumbers and with the right amount of sweetness as a glass of southern wine as I call it, known to most as sweet iced tea.  In my mind I had to immediately give thanks and utter an internal thanks to my Maker because it was her sweet delicate yet wise spirit that brought a peaceful calmness upon me and I knew it was Divine in all its ways.  Give thanks for consciousness and awareness to recognize when to obey and flow in the realm of the Almighty ingesting the Divine lessons.  Endless mounds of blessings I pray among our elders that still share these realms of living with us on these earth lands and for instilling a wealth and richness into our very sense of being, thinking and flowing.

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

Sweet Sincerity Bites


Peace & Grace my lovely, blessed and beautiful  Shugas…

We experience such a multitude of moments when we interact with other beings that sometimes the spirit is abruptly overwhelmed and has an urgency to explode, but knowing when to assess thyself and allow wisdom and SOUND mind to overtake your feelings is the greatest lesson and application, one can practice.   That power-clacking instruments that lives in our mouth is sumthin that can either harm or heal.  Your reaction decided that fate… Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you…

When You Must, Gotta & Betta Replenish YaSOUL


Peace & Grace to each of you my lovely and precious Shugas….

Alright my lovely and precious blessed Shuga, here’s a morsel of momentum for you.. Sometimes you have to willingly and freely dip yourself into a pool positivism and pure purpose to saturate yourself with truth and wash off the foul funks of those people, situations and or realms that attempt to infiltrate your flow in gracious and most needed land of forwarDOM.. Yes, I said, “forwarDOM.   The land of moving ahead and never treading back.  Remember my Shugas you can never flow in the future with your foot stuck in quick sand sinking deep into the past.  It’s mid-week and “hump” day as some say and ‘m sharing serving up some Wednesday Wisdom.

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

Evolving Eminently



Peace & Grace to each of you my lovely and precious Shugas…

We all maturate at different paces in these life stages.  NO book can predict when you will experience true love when you will finally do every day what give you pure joy, swallow the gist of what has been told to you for yearrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.  One must not fail to fall into the traps of planning life and attempt to sketch the life itinerary, because most times, you are lead down alternate routes and must travel some unfamiliar conditions that are all a part of your spirit structure and test of faith and fortitude.  So take a moment to reflect on some wise words that were shared with you and lessons that were offered.  Always be willing to sit at the feet of your elders and those that have experienced these life’s pages as you flip from chapter to chapter of -The Journey providing you with “gleaning nuggets.  Never become drunkenness with knowing it all, you must be willing to listen and learn as a student and allow the teachers that the Most High places you in your life.

Growing and acknowledging your quirks and how to manage balance and too, applying correction to behaviors and mindsets and too routines that need tweaking. Continually check yourself Shugas,, take a personal inventory and assessment of yourself.  Continually strive to be conscious and aware of your state of mind and spirit that drives you.  No matter how much you evolve, always give thanks for those that can sincerely challenge you to be better.  Sit at the feet of your elders and let the wisdom shower upon you and soak up the gracious goodness as wise ones speak.  Walk deeper into your purpose and the eminent embrace of being the “you” you truly are to be.

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

Slipping Into YOU


Peace & Grace to you my lovely and precious Shugas….

With endless gratefulness, I spread mounds of love and blessings upon each of you, this first day of a brand new year.  We all have experienced our share of roller coasters and turbulence in the midst of the year, along with some high notes that warm you and soothe you with pure joy.  But the important factor is to be reminded of the lessons that were learned and the growth that you matriculated within your inner self from one level to the next in this Journey of ~ Life.

With this new year beginning on a Monday its all the more to start it with balance, focus and with truth and realDOM.  Remaining true and I cannot stress enough of living in your truth and keeping it at a 100 percentage boulevard of the real real.  NO need to sugar coat and uniform the core, let greatest grandest YOU be revealed and be the one that you are truly to be.  Shakespeare quoted, “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

So my precious beings here is a thought I am leaving with you to nibble on this 1st of the 2018… Ever think about uniforms, bodysuits, and form-fitting gear? So my inquiry for you is when will you and how shall you prepare to garment yourself with your true skin”?  We are all woven from different fabrics yet woven together with a special quality of uniqueness that makes us who we are.  We foreshadow different hues, some of the rainbow, some of the earth’s grounds, some of the seasons, then you have those eclectic souls life myself who have morsels of all of those shades.  No matter the fabric or the shade, wear your skin comfortably and do it unapologetically.  Auntie Mame told her guest to “LIVE, LIVE, LIVE” and to you I remind you that no matter what occurs, we must do just that- LIVE.  Be flawless and fearless.

Mount your spirit with positivity and perseverance and ride 2018 with favor and fortitude.  ~1MOpoeticSOUL

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

Here’s a lil tune to jumpstart the year and message for you resonate on… Be you and let the world see the blessed and unique being that you…
