Speak Up

Silence isn’t always golden. This is a phrase I shared in 2011 on my Facebook page.

Silence- complete absence of sound (noun) google definition.

I was never one who always spoke up for myself for failure to get on someone’s bad side. All this changed after I’ve realized Silence isn’t always golden. Speaking up allows the other person to know how you’re feeling, whether you’re in agreement or not. It’s important to share your feelings without fear of the outcome.

I’ve been reading books, listening to podcasts talking to people who are very unapologetic about who they are and what they bring to the table. If you’re at a job and you have all the ideas that would make a process work and you don’t say anything, that is to your detriment. How many times have you missed an opportunity to share ideas and even get ahead in life? What has your silence done for you?

After reading the book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F$@k – Mark Manson it has further cemented me to speak up or focus more directly on what makes me happy. Putting yourself first allows you to strive, to grow and achieve things that you’ve always wanted to achieve.

Whatever you do or say always focus on the bottom line YOU. Ensure that all your encounters leaves you satisfied with your response to any situation. It doesn’t happen over night it takes practice and drive. Never miss another opportunity to shine because you remained silent.

Silence isn’t always golden.

Behind Her Eyes – Netflix Movie Review

Overview: A single mother enters a world of twisted mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss while secretly befriending his mysterious wife.

If you have been searching for a movie to watch – “Behind Her Eyes” should be on your next watch list; especially for all my mystery and thriller readers. This movie will have you guessing and also challenge you into thinking that you have the movie all figured out when in fact your left surprised.

The Characters:

Adele : Very wealthy girl who lost her parents in a mysterious fire and was saved by her now husband David. She met another character Rob while undergoing treatment at a mental facility. Adele had a close relationship with Rob sharing similar complaints to that of night tremors. Rob was her only friend.

Rob: The bestfriend of Adele who was there with her while staying at a mental facility. Rob visited Adele one day and mysteriously goes missing.

David: Adele’s husband who would do anything possible to keep Adele happy. They had finally relocated  due to David’s new job and wanting to leave the past behind.

Loiuse : Single mother of a seven year old son Adam who is also recently divorced.

My Thoughts:

(Spoilers Included)

Netflix out did themselves with this limited series. I loved it thoroughly had me cursing like the true sailor. This movie will have you on the edge of your seat and its not one of those movies that you can multitask with , it needs your undivided attention for failure to miss major and crucial parts. If I were to sum up a theme for this movie “Minding Your Own Business” would do. Loiuse met David in a bar after being stood up by her friend Sophia. They hit it off from the start and enjoyed a good evening exchanging jokes and drinking. The chemistry was there and evidently for both something sparked between them and they shared a kiss which was very brief. Loiuse shows up at work the next day and discovers that the hot guy from last night would be her new boss.

Home girl was royally embarrassed and hid in the restroom. They eventually met officially and not before long they give into when feelings they had and slept together.

Things got out of hand when she met the wife ‘Adele’,they had coffee and soon become Bffs, Adele didn’t want Loise to disclose that they knew each other and Loise didn’t reveal she was the other woman.

Adele is a strange woman, you have to watch it to find out just how strange she is to go at length to be with her husband.

Rating 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Your “I Am” is your Super Power -Affiirming yourself in 2021

A few years ago, I went to a woman’s conference.This was my first time attending and it was hosting its second staging. A very good friend of mine went to the first and told me how awesome, it was and no matter what I just couldn’t miss the second.

I was excited I wanted to experience this conference my friend made it seem as if it transformed her life. There were speakers from various backgrounds, judges, entrepreneurs, bankers very powerful and esteemed women of society. I thought to myself how could these women relate to me? I listened to them took notes until this Marketing executive came on the stage. Her topic “I AM”.

Two words, that I’ve never thought so much about resonated with me and the audience who was moved by her story.

Your I AM is very powerful, those two words can either make you or break you. 2020 was rough, many people did not make it thankfully you’re here. I AM two words that can shape your reality, based on what words you place after it. If you want to achieve anything in life you have to affirm yourself. You are the most important factor in the equation. For you to get up out of bed, you first have to decide whether or not you want to get out of bed. So too, with anything else that you want to achieve this year. You have to decide.

When you get up in the morning, after you’ve had your devotions if you’re a religious person, yoga whatever you do to relax and be at peace with yourself you need to affirm yourself. Record yourself if that’s easier for you to work with and play it while you’re preparing breakfast. What’s your I AM?

I AM strong

I Am loved

I Am Important

I Am Handsome

I Am Beautiful

I Am an overcomer

I AM….

Affirming yourself every day allows you to build your self-esteem as well as build your character. You will be more confident which will make you feel like you can take on any task that is given to you. Affirming yourself is good for your mental health. Your I Am is your superpower. Try it!
