Dance Challenge‼️Bravery

#DanceChallenge‼️💃🕺Accepted💃‼️

I don’t know how It started but I was pulled into this challenge by some friends over in the LinkedIn platform. Miriam Ben Salem and Ramona Patterson! Thank you both!

My dear friends…cover your eyes…lol

If anyone would have told me a year ago I’d be posting myself dancing on #Linkedin, or any #socialmedia, I would have said 🗣Noooooo 🗣Waaaaay‼️

Well these two ladies put it out there and pushed me to do it too💃🕺

This is so out of my comfort zone, but since I did it and I’m posting it…It’s done‼️

I’m a different person today & will be another version of me tomorrow. Stepping out of my zone & doing my thing, living the best way I can.

Life is full of surprises, but once you start surprising life, you will be granted a full access pass to some outstanding adventures! Keep pushing yourself, allow encouragement in…don’t worry what others think…it’s none of your business. Take a walk on the wild side!

Keep scrolling or watch

Regardless..

Have a Happy Sunday Beautiful People‼️

‼️REAL‼️

‼️Real‼️

So here’s a thought🤔
Asked of me🗣
What it’d be like
If we all could see👁

Not with our eyes👀
Or in our homes🏘
Not in the car 🚗
Or office of clones🏢

What I was asked
Was to write🖋
A simple poem
And this I like🤓

So after tasks
I did complete
Here I am on
Linkedin street🚦

It is amazing
And obvious
So many people👥
All of us🧍‍♀️🧍🏿‍♂️👩🏽‍🦽

We are here
At different times⏰
Some just read📚
Others write lines📝

What makes it real
And so compelling
Are all the words
And so much selling💲

What we write🖌
And how we feel🤪
What we think🤔
Is it all real?🤫

Are we here
Most of all
To make a friend🧍‍♀️🧍
And that is all

All People here🙋‍♀️🙋🏾
In human nature👩‍💻
We really do just
Need each other❤️

The question now ❓
Before I close
Is are you real
Or pitch proposed⁉️

What I like
And I’m not crass
A place where misfits
Show real class🆔

The only sign⭕️
We have to see 👁
Are the words📝
And pictures free👩‍💻

Face to face🎭
We seldom hear👂🏻
And physically
We disappear👣

But in this land
Of digital📱
Words right here
Are visible📲

So while you’re here
And yet so far
What is your wish
Upon a star⭐️

As we reach
The end ahead🔚
Across the page 🔜
That you have read👁‍🗨

What was the point☑️
I tried to make🔙
Are you just here🔝
By some mistake?🤷‍♀️🤔😃

The Fake..

Be aware for they don’t care

In their fangs is where jealousy reigns

They want to pounce and attack too

Report, block and get rid of you

But we the real are here to stay

Writing truths every day

Warning, helping, reaching out

We do with peace and never shout

We like to add a dose of love

For it is the best to speak of

‼️CANADA’S BACKYARD‼️

‼️‼️Happy Canada Day‼️‼️

🇨🇦CANADA’S BACKYARD🇨🇦

It started in July, 

1867

A British North American Act

Self governing dominion 

Here’s a little story

Of how we came to be

When European explorers 

Thought the Indies they did see

They met the native peoples

And called them Indian

There were no maps to show them

New territory they were in

They lived a way of life

Some were nomadic

Others farmed the land

They valued and respected

Missionaries and explorers 

Interacted in a way

That changed them all forever

And took their land away

Populations changed

As interactions mingled

Prosperity for some

Discrepancy commingled 

The British sent Cabot

Who found us by mishap

The French they had Cartier

Who put “Kanata” on the map

A word from the people,

Meaning settlement of village

A community together

And some did suffer pillage 

The competitions grew

Of who would own the land

Nothing has changed here

The world and it’s commands

Eventually some truce

Was put on papers true

Signatures together

Accommodated too

Migrations and expansions

North America did split

1776

Set North the Loyalist

The first to Prohibit

1883

Upper Canada’s Gen. Simcoe

Abolished slavery 

The North Star was followed

The empire was inviting

Underground Railroad

Anti slavery was in writing

This is just a glimpse

A bit about our nation

We are a country with

Abundant diversification

This is my village home

I share some history

Oh Canada, North Star

I highlight humanity

We’ve always been inviting

And we will stand on guard

All people here together

In Canada’s backyard

“When you love 

Where you’re livin

It’s pretty cool

Being Canadian”

‼️SUPERSTAR SCARS‼️

‼️SUPERSTAR SCARS‼️

Life handed you a task
Or should I say a few
Every single day
Was one to just get through

It wasn’t very easy
It’s not meant to be this way
Sometimes we are allotted
And there’s a price to pay

We see the world in beauty
And look for all the good
Even in the face
Of evil and it’s hood

You never see it coming
But hope for all the best
We sooth the dying soul
Avoiding this life’s test

In the fear of darkness
There is a light that’s dim
Everything you cherish
Is attacked with evil sin

The repeated torture stays
You battle every day
Until the time you see
Your love has gone away

Not only for the other
Who hovered over you
Your mind had many scars
And love has left you too

The courage you held onto
This love was your dear hope
The power in its hold
Was gifted in this choke

Physical is seen
But more is in your head
The scars they cannot see
Increase with what is said

Reactions they decrease
For punishment is huge
Weaker is the fist
When mighty words are used

The greatest gift you have
To survive is a surprise
When courage swept you up
And helped you to arise

At first you can’t decipher
And try to figure out
How it all became
And why you had a doubt

The master and the servant
Are compromising myths
No one should own another
Not everyone gets this

There is no shame to see
Why you were in this cage
The fact that you are out
You paid the highest wage

The purity of love
Leaves a bigger scar
It is your badge of courage
You are a superstar

#PaulaG

Life and it’s scars

Makes a lot of superstars

Release the chains of misery
Grasp freedom from love’s history

If someone or something hurts you
That’s their choice not yours
It’s your choice to refuse to be a part of their bad choice

There is suffering
There is pain

Release the chains of misery⛓
Grasp freedom from love’s history❤️

Whatever the reason
It could be worse

There is healing
There is joy
It does get better

Whatever negative reason you are thinking
You have the power of choice of what to believe in

In life.. the only ‼️LEADER‼️ that matters…
Is the one in you‼️Honour YOU as you would a leader‼️

‼️AFTER THIS IS OVER‼️

‼️𝘼𝙁𝙏𝙀𝙍 𝙏𝙃𝙄𝙎 𝙄𝙎 𝙊𝙑𝙀𝙍‼️

To every single human

I share with all my heart

For every single thought

There has to be a start

What makes us think beyond

The world that we live in

All the love and joy

And every single sin

We all have a view

And only some will share

It happens every second

Conversations are out there

Every word that’s uttered

Is valued by the speaker

Some are most profound

While others are the weaker

In our minds we are alone

We search and look around

Looking hard to find

We seek a common ground

Something to hold onto

Something to believe

Something to give reason

Something to achieve

We need a solid base

A foundation where to stand

Some are afraid to lose

And fear change to understand

What works for other beings

May not work well with you

Everyone is different

Your life is needed too

Sometimes we need a rest

From leading in ourselves

A time to take a break

And let others lead as well

The thing that makes it smart

Is knowing you have will

Not everyone is climbing

Up the same big hill

The cracks along the way

Will allow you to slow down

As long as you keep going

It’s not over when you frown

Everyone’s a climber

Not everyone can climb

In humanity together

We have to stand in line

There is a time to process

And understand it all

Accepting there are moments

From this climb that we will fall

Expect to lose your grip

Anticipate the fall

This is where you learn

And find you most of all

Everyone is climbing

Some are in a rush

Just let them be

They too will learn from this

After this is over

What will happen next

Does it make a difference

If no lesson here did fix

So if I were to say

And address Humanity

After this is over

Did I become a better me?

‼️JUST WALK‼️

‼️JUST WALK‼️

What is the pace

We need to keep

If all around us

Is asleep

What is the race

You are running

If you keep chasing

After nothing

Better days

And some cheer

It’s not to get

But all right here

To always roam

And be prepared

Perpetuates

The feelings scared

To live in searching

Always looking

It makes sense

To stop lurking

The fear of what

Or what if

Sometimes it helps

To just give

Always wanting

Much for self

Is too much

For mental health

We cannot stay

In desire’s mist

There is a point

We must resist

Satisfaction

A heavy word

Never complete

In this world

Gravity

Loses grip

When your mind

Is not fit

The heavy shroud

On naked skin

Happiness

Can’t get in

Ruling you

Is the force

Right and wrong

Mind’s divorce

There is hope

From our birth

Remember child

You are first

Each growing day

You encounter

Guaranteed

It will hurt ya

Knowing now

What’s in store

Just believe

There is more

Free in mind

You have to wander

Allow all thoughts

But don’t go under

All perceptions

Without love

Kill the brain

And life thereof

When it’s hard

It is easy

To hand it over

And lose the key

As it falls

In this dimension

Give your heart

Some attention

It commands

Electric shock

Take back the key

And just walk
