What My World's Like

life’s lessons…

I’ve been listening to myself lately — honoring my own wisdom, listening to its whispers, feeling its tugs and trying to heed its advice. This is what I’m learning…

  • On music: It’s amazing. It’s awesome. It’s super powerful. It’s healing… It’s distracting. Sometimes. When I disconnect and listen to vocal-less music, I’m connected to myself and insights on life. It relaxes me and makes life a bit more otherworldly. Ambrose Akinmusire‘s When the Heart Emerges Glistening and Robert Glasper‘s Double Booked are soothing my spirit right now.
  • On desire: We’re not supposed to have everything we think we want. Or when we want it.
  • On life: Talents are our gifts — to us and to others. Burying them only shortchanges us and minimizes our contribution. Follow your bliss.
  • Practice love. Be loving. Don’t let pain, and subsequent anger, blind you to your love. You love because you are love and expressing it is the highest joy. So express it. Live it. Be love in motion.

  1. Love this post. I have been learning a few of things over the past few months. It’s been a long road and I’ve made some mistakes on the way but, I’m learning.

  2. We all make mistakes; it’s a part of the process. We just have to learn to not criticize and condemn ourselves because we make mistakes; we have to. It’s how we learn. We won’t always get it right, but it’s all about our will to correct ourselves.

  3. I came across this on Curly Nikki’s website. I appreciate you so much for the “Practice love” advice. I needed to see this more than ever right at this moment. Thank you.

  4. You’re so welcome! 🙂 It takes a lot of practice to perfect, and I haven’t mastered it yet, but I’m constantly checking myself. Perhaps that’s all we can ask of ourselves.
