Be True To You

The Power of NO

When was the last time you said NO?

NO, as short and as simple as the word is, is one of the most powerful words to use. At a young age, we are taught to say “YES” when we agree with something and “NO” when we don’t. Yet, we often put ourselves in situations we don’t want to be in just because we do not want to say no.

pacing up and down
then I begin to pick dirt
from my nails with my thumbnail

maybe I didn’t understand you
maybe I didn’t care enough
maybe I didn’t put you first

Blogiversary: Two Years A Blogger, You Can Do It Too

Guess who’s been blogging for two years? Me! I still can’t believe a whole two years have gone by just like that. It was all a dream when I signed up on WordPress on the 7th of March, 2017 and published my first post. I had no idea what I wanted to do exactly.
