Time Capsule: Somebody Save Me…

Guinevere and Sir LancelotHa… this is an interesting one. Now that I think back, it was a pretty big step in my growth as an adult. I am the sweetest person ever, but I am not very nice when I am angry.  I used to have a lot of difficulty controlling my words and actions when under the influence of my emotions and didn’t likeb being a slave to my them, so I made a conscious effort to change that.  Now, I control my emotions; they do not control me.  Since then, I have been able to assess things more logically and go beyond hurt, anger or pain to a place where I can move forward without emotional anchors. Not that I don’t deal with it from time to time, I am only human. I’m not a slave to them is all. Continue reading

Is Homosexuality a communicable disease??

So sorry to disappoint you, Im "strictly-dickly"

Of course, it isn’t!  I just wanted to prove a point.  First off, it’s not a disease.  Secondly, you don’t become “gay” by association. Yet, some people (on both sides of the team) would have you believe so.

I would have thought that as a community that has experienced so much discrimination and hate, they would be a little more sensitive and open-minded.  As a dark-skinned, Latin American, woman, I hit the gene pool lottery when it comes to the types of discrimination I could possibly experience, and LORD KNOWS, I’ve experienced them ALL…. except, I’m not gay.  Even so, I’m still very sensitive to the GLBT community and embrace them with open arms.

Throughout my life, I’ve met a few people affected with Lupus and you’d never know these brilliant, joyous, exuberant people are battling this condition. I am blessed to know the beautiful, young lady mentioned in this post. I would be personally indebted if you took a moment to find out more about Lupus and made a donation to help her reach her goal.

Thank you in advance for your support and donation to finding a cure.
Much Love and Many Blessings, D~*

Rough Day? Week? Inspiration from my homeboy PC!

Paulo Coelho… Enjoy!<3

The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.

“We warriors of light must be prepared to have patience in difficult times and to know the Universe is conspiring in our favor, even though we may not understand how.”

You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it. Continue reading

I’m not proud, but I have to confess… I’m still an active member of MySpace. **cringe** I rarely go on there, but I used to blog quite a bit back in the olden days of MySpace. I have hesitated to delete my account mostly because of these blogs. I don’t believe there is a way to export them. In the meantime, I had a brilliant idea. 😀  REPOST!!! Some are actually quite entertaining. Reading them again, years later…. well, makes for  interesting  self-reflection. Continue reading
