hate is a strong emotion too

I read a tweet recently that got me pondering... I really mean thinking deeper than I love to.
I started asking myself questions. I am still wondering if I have not read it well and should ask someone else to interpret the tweet, I may be wrong.

Does a person simply hate another person because of what other person looks like, hair colour, nose shape...?

What is the cost of living in peace with someone versus the cost of living in the opposite of peace with a person?

Why have we grown to hate other people for being born as they are?

Do you also think many of the problems we have on earth is as a result of simply just hating other people?

Is hate an emotion as strong as love?

What makes us decide to hate a thing or a person?

Is it even ok to just 'hate'?

(this is how i see it ---> everything starts as a seed, a tiny seed, a tiny seed of jealousy, bitterness or superiority and then becomes a tree of hate with many fruits and even more seeds)

Do we hate because we can love?

is …

Sometimes...

Sometimes I’m not socially awkward,
Sometimes I am
Sometimes I just want my body to be in place
and my mind far from the place
Sometimes I don’t want to be standing,
Sometimes I don’t want to be lying down
Sometimes I am afraid of the unknown,
Sometimes I don’t want to talk to the people
that matter so much to me
To them who geniunely ask “ how are you doing?”
Sometimes I don’t want morning to come
and the brightness, that brightness
Sometimes I know it’s just for a moment
then brightness will be beautiful again

of surf boards and good people

This past week has been a week of reading about people who took their own lives...this is always a sad thing for the families because death is never a happy thing.

But this past week has also been a 'something else' for me... I started the week a bit shaken but good always triumphs ✊😊
The first important lesson I learnt is, I have to cut of Lyft. Nope! no more!
The second important lesson I learnt is - Be grateful for the good people that surround you
I learned other lessons to like with the roads here are not black or dark...

I just fully understood my Mom's prayer - Lord choose the right friends for my children.

Thank you Jesus for family, friemily, friends and amazing company.

We were welcomed to two lovely homes today, we were fed, we played games and we laughed alot. To someone else that's like yea whatever, but to me it sure did count.

I think i should pick up swimming lessons, so i can pick up surfing lessons. Out looking at the ocean today reminded me how much…

of volunteering and sunlight

**sips lemon flavoured green tea**

this isn't going to be a long post, if it gets too long i'd break it into two

I spent my weekend volunteering and it was different. By the way, I am drinking green tea for the first time, as I type. I honestly don't know why I even bought it. It is also raining in my part of the sunshine state but that is cool.

Saturday morning was a little cold regardless I went out to start my Day 1 volunteering at a local art fest. It was different, well things are different here sigh, sometimes it gets to me and I have the why-am-I-doing-this or why-am-I-even-here moments. Day 2 was shorter
Anyway, I went and it didn't hurt to speak with other people. I also noticed all sorts of people

a lady was pleasantly surprised at the-black-girl, her eyes just had the 'wondering look'
some people just walk away
another lady was old and clearly wanted to pass time watching younger guys
the funny ones,
-the lady who wanted to make known that people'…

living in peace

On Sunday, I struggled. In the early hours of the day, before the Sun rose I struggled with having to do something out of my comfort zone
Before I talk about that I will tell you where the struggle came from I had worked till 3am on a kitchen asset model in Maya I had strained my eyes, tired my hands and exhausted my thinking abilities And then my mind played games, so I struggled
By evening time, after having being privileged to listen to a great man expound a part of the 2nd chapter of Mark's gospel I had calmed down from my struggle The fight was all in my mind The struggle came from unseen scenes I was playing in my head
Before the Moon shined bright, it dawned on me "I am living my blessed life" Funny thing my bank card got lost, but God's peace enveloped me

of procrastination, of tightropes, of vibranium and being twenty again

of procrastination, its been weeks since i left a post here... I have been busy sometimes, playful sometimes, and procrastinated typing most times

of tightropes, I loved loved the soundtrack of The Greatest Showman, sigh, totally loved and i still sing the songs - my best being Tightrope

some people long for a life that is simple and planned... but is all an adventure that comes with a breathtaking view...

I think i am at a point in my life that I can relate to the lyrics of the song, living in a new place and working on my life goal. The story was the weakest link tho

I didn't feel January was long like everyone kept saying on twitter but... I had so much to deal with at various times that the days flew by, some other days were a bit slow tho...

In the last 6 weeks I have learned the Maya strings and I have been modeling, I have met amazing people, I have been cold and wondered why, I have been stopped and told i had a beautiful smile and the best - I have learned even more than …

When I look back at 2017, I will think of the year of a whole of different and new.
I will remember the year I started on the path of my animator dream and the sunshine state move.
I will remember the year I was carless for a few months and learned a new way to 'walk'
I will remember the year I dragged a mattress from Ikea, omg
I will remember the start of the RISE model and the work-play-fit-push schedule
I will remember the year I got to work with my bestest cousin (please don't tell'im)
I will remember the year I bought cheap toilet paper and well learnt a lesson
I will remember the year I learned to play cornholes
I will remember the year I listened to Funbi's Hallelujah, Simi's Smile for me, Luis Fonsi's Despacito
I will remember the year Falz just evol…
