NO WHITE FLAGS!

“It’s okay to fall down sometimes, just don’t stay there”! ~Deetra La’Rue People are so quick to throw in the “white towel”, because it’s so much easier to just quit.  However, what they fail to realize is, the moment they give up, they forfeit their hopes and dreams.  Hope nowadays, seem to be the veryContinue reading “NO WHITE FLAGS!”

“This is a stick-up”!

So many people are getting “robbed” everyday, and they have no idea that “comparison” is the reason for the stick-up!  I am sad quite often, and sometimes wonder if my happiness will ever return.  Getting dolled up, putting on my favorite red lipstick and highest pair of heels used to cure the “blues”, but notContinue reading ““This is a stick-up”!”

Let’s TALK!

A lot of times we keep quiet and reserve our opinions, because we don’t want to offend anyone, especially those we love.

Social Media: Death by visualization

Everybody knows that comparison is the thief of joy.  We’re so busy watching and lusting over what others have, that we miss out on our own opportunity for happiness.   ~Deetra La’Rue Sometimes I’m a little hesitant to hit “Log In”, when accessing my social media account. I’m almost always met with images of women displayingContinue reading “Social Media: Death by visualization”

Dear Family

When I think of family, unity, love and support are the characteristics that quickly come to mind. When I was younger, I starved for those things, but as I’ve evolved and gotten older, I no longer feel the need for them…especially from people who aren’t genuine, willing or ready to give them to me. I knowContinue reading “Dear Family”
