Gentle reminders…

When children are gently reminded that childhood is a time of magic, dreams and discovering who they are, they are more apt to embrace it.

….I don’t like to see children trying to be adults too soon…there will be time for that. Not everyone has a magical childhood, sometimes, the magic comes later…in discovering your power and loving your inner child the way he/she needed to be loved when you were a child. There is still time to explore your world and be happy.

Never ever forget the magic of discovery, the essence of a flower smelled for the first time, the sound of laughing way too hard and the purity of your spirit.

 

 

Feeling the Sun…

So today’s post is about the weather, which I can’t tell what direction it is turning in…I do miss the beach, the sand between my toes, palm trees and coconut water straight from the coconut…yeah, I’m always gonna be an island girl, nothing will ever change that. Michigan has shown me how to be more patient and I’m not gonna lie, it is HARD. Hard because I miss gardening and sunshine; mangoes and sugar cane juice from the Swap Shop. This winter had me reflecting big time on so much, like how far I’ve come and where I will go…Never does a day go by without thinking…about my family, my friends my roots, my past. But a bright future is ahead…there’s been days where the sun would be beaming but I couldn’t truly allow myself to enjoy it…now I do. I relish it, crave it and feel so energized when it’s visible…April showers will bring flowers, May will be full of sunny days and I will swoon in June…
