My brain has no heart. And my heart has no brain.

Your brain whispers, “You’ll be fine.”
And your heart whispers, “Don’t lie.”


It’s a constant battle between your brain and your heart. Aren’t we suppose to be on the same team?? Yet, they tell us two different things. Different opinions on all our life choices. Love, friends, career, and even family members sometimes! Should this really be a battle?
I’ve contemplated this issue in my head over and over again. I can practically drive myself insane in my own head. I think we all think about the same things, regardless of who we are, our personal preferences, or sexual orientation… WE ARE ALL HUMANS! That’s the wonderful, yet scary thing about love, it is not prejudice.

I am more infatuated with the mind games. And you ALL know exactly what I’m talking about. All those flirty emoji filled text messages, fav tweets and “liked” Instagram photos. No matter how we word it, or how we see it… It is all a form of some sort of mind game. My question is, why? Why do we put ourselves through that. Yes, granted.. As a woman, we need to play a little hard to get. If the challenge becomes too easy, what’s the point of trying right? My mama always told me “A girl worth kissing, shouldn’t be easily kissed.” And I have held that dear to my heart when it comes to a guy I am interested in. Let him take you on a date, enjoy a nice dinner, a movie, or whatever he has planned for you… But what I’ve learned is no matter how great of a girl you could possibly be, you’ll never be good enough for a man who isn’t ready. And that’s where we tend to get caught up and tangled in our emotions. We tend to fall for the ones who aren’t interested in us, and refuse the ones who are. You’ll end up disappointing yourself if you continue to grow up thinking everyone has the same heart as you do. But if you do find someone good enough for you, please hold on to them. And in return, be the best possible person you can be for him/ or her.
As far as I know, the only person I can control is myself. It has taken me a long time to realize that, but better late than never right? I’m focusing on being a good, humble person. Beauty on the inside, shines bright. People tend to notice those things, I promise… Remember that. Give this world good energy, there is enough bad people in this world.
Fill yourself with happiness, fun, laughter, love, friends, friendly strangers and most importantly is family. That’s my little piece of advice to you kids, but please remember… I’m learning too :)

Good things come for those who wait.

Til we meet again

Hello to my all lovely readers,

Hope you are all enjoying your wonderful Wednesday so far, it’s hump day! Half way through our week!! Last night I was thinking about poetry, and I quickly jumped on my laptop and started reading through sooooo many different types of poetry. I also have a book by Ernest Hemingway (for those of you who don’t know, HE IS MY FAVORITE AUTHOR OF ALL TIME. AND I MEAN OF ALL TIME. PURE GENIUS!) which I like to consider my little 20140709-160401-57841484.jpgtreasure because it is very dear to me. The book is all of his short stories written through out his life time! Wonderful book, please go pick it up if you’re into that sort of literature. But anyways, back to poetry… I really love listening and reading different types of poetry because I feel like it holds a different perception to someone’s mind, body, and soul The words are so beautiful written and arranged in every sentence perfectly.

I have such a strong respect, and desire for poetry because as a kid I was constantly writing stories, fictional of course, and poems. I wasn’t very good at the time, let me tell you. But I’ve come a long way! I want to share a poem that I wrote a few weeks ago… And it took me WEEKS to write. I’m such a perfectionist when it comes to my writing so I will write drafts, after drafts until I am completely satisfied with it. So please enjoy!! :)

“I’m not the girl your mother warns you about.
I won’t kiss your best friend, or break your heart.
I won’t make you choose what you love to do & me.
I’m not cold. I’m not reckless.
Because I’m the girl your father mentions when your mother’s not around.
I’m the girl that gets away.
I will love you more than anything,
I will kiss you when you cry.
I will stand by your side until you cry.
I will stand by your side until you decide otherwise,
And you’re just like your father, so you will.
You’ll let me go and I won’t look back,
But you will.
I promise you, you will.
I’m that girl.” – s.w.

I have a few other poems that I’ve written through the years that I will continue to share with you guys! Have a great day :)

til we meet again

Inside the mind of a woman

Hello lovies!

Okay, so lately I’ve been hearing so much complaining from all the men in my life about how difficult and confusing the mind of a woman is. That got me to thinking, are we really as confusing as men make us out to be? Are women truly that difficult to understand and please? Am I considered to be one of these “typical women” who can’t be figured out by a man because I’m from venus? So here is what I came up with…

I believe that every woman on this planet is uniquely made. We are NOT all alike, and if you believe that every woman is exactly the same.. You have other issues, my friend. But that doesn’t ignore the fact that I do strongly believe that many women share common similarities involving our actions, words, or sensitivity. All these characteristics may vary, but I will take you to the inside of the mind of a woman. It’s a scary place… You have been warned.

Every guy seems to think that all girls are all about the bigger, the better! Whether it’s a car, a ring, or a house. Don’t get me wrong here, we love a big car, big ring, and a big beautiful house… But what guys don’t seem to understand is that sometimes the simple, teeny-tiny things that you do for us, makes up for all the other big things that we could care less about. Ever heard the saying, “It’s the thought that lionroarsmall_grandecounts” well… It is true! A woman would rather you put a lot of thought into a special gift, than walk into a jewelry store and pick out a piece that’s the largest and most expensive. ¬†Of course, I can’t speak for ALL women.. but I’m pretty sure I can speak for most of us (at least the ones with our heads screwed on right!).

I can’t emphasize enough on how truly important it is for a man to show his affection towards a woman he truly loves and cares about. Of course, this works vice versa as well because I know how important it is for a man to receive affection from his woman. This should be a key component in any relationship, but in this new generation of technology advancements and the ability to show affection in different ways because it’s not just physical now. Not exactly sure what I’m talking about? Think about it… Every woman loves to be mentioned in his Facebook status, his tweet, even his Instagram for #WCW (woman crush Wednesday). Social networking has really improved the ability for someone to show affection, who may not be so comfortable showing it physically. And guys, take notes here. Every woman loves this. No woman will admit this, but we love when you show us off and make us feel as if we are your “entire world” it makes us feel good about ourselves. Treat your woman like a queen, and she will treat you like a king.

Til next time,

xo Sarah
