The last couple of months have been such a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I have spent a lot of time on introspection. I’ve asked myself WHY a lot. The more I asked, the more I tried to dig deep, the worse I felt. Turns out I’d been doing it wrong. Asking myself Why wasn’t going to make me more aware of myself and it wasn’t going to give me the answers on someone else’s behavior. In fact, it negatively affected my relationship with people I care for and made me a less effective employee. What I should have been doing is treating myself like a business, I should have been asking WHAT and not WHY. Continue reading “Switching Gears”
We’re all right, there’s nobody wrong- Vinny
I was sitting at the bar having dinner and drinks with a friend when Vinny and his buddy came in. There was no room available so in true Bee form, I scooted over and signaled them to take a seat next to me. They were grateful, shot me a smile and took a seat. I was immediately intrigued by the two. Continue reading “We’re all right, there’s nobody wrong- Vinny”
“Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it” – light up the darkness.
I’m currently reading La Magia or The Magic by Rhonda Byrne and I came across the quote above. This book is about the power of gratitude, but the quote spoke to a different aspect in me. It spoke to my dark side. Continue reading ““Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it” – light up the darkness.”
Talking Yourself Off the Ledge
There is nothing wrong with feeling deeply, but as we navigate through adulthood we have to learn that not everything deserves intense reactions.
For those of us that wear our hearts on our sleeves, its almost like teaching yourself not to care. Not because you are heartless but as a form of guarding your heart. Your sanity. Continue reading “Talking Yourself Off the Ledge”
I often use the hashtag pasito tun tun on Instagram. Like blogging, Instagram is another platform of inspiration and self reflection for me. I was inspired to use the pasito tun tun hashtag from an old song by the same name, interpreted by the Billo’s Caracas Boys. Continue reading “#pasitotuntun”
Q: Why is she sharing such personal issues? Why are her posts all about her and her pain?
A: I write for self-reflection, I write for self- healing. I write as a way of acknowledging certain situations and thus making it easier to confront them and let them go. I write because I want to help others; and how can you help heal something you, yourself have never experienced? I am not a martyr. I am not a victim. I no longer live in my past. I am a woman of strength who wants to help others create their own flame when they cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Feeling is stronger than knowing.
Think about it.
Now for those that’d like to argue with me:
I know this burger is no good for me but I’ve been craving it all day. Eats burger, fries, the extra-large coke and the apple pie, self-induces lethargic food coma.
I know this guy is no good for me but I love him. Stays with guy, justifies all hurt.
I know I should be going to bed early but this sitcom gives me the feels. Binge watches show, hates the world in the morning.
Exactly. Continue reading “DADDY ISSUES”
