Serving the betterment of Society! — Inspiration HERE (Repost)

This post ties in well with the theme for this week “Patience“ Understanding the difference between a want and a need will make it easier to decide what things are worth chasing vs waiting for in life. If the mind and mouth belong to the body, what belongs to the soul? We speak of infinite tales of mankind and its growth. We speak boldly of integrity and justice. We assert our views and want to see developments likewise. Here is the problem, All of these end up becoming our wants… Read more Serving the betterment of Society! — Inspiration HERE (Repost)

Words Hurt as Well as Sticks and Stones (Part I)

Have you ever wondered why certain words are spelt or pronounced the way they are even though it doesn’t seem logical? I was often confused as well until I stumbled on a lecture about etymology. Etymology is the study of the origin of words and how their meanings have changed throughout history. I found this fascinating as it was revealed to me that English is a mix of other languages with “English pronunciations” and these words are rooted in primarily Greek and Latin words, and these Greek and Latin words… Read more Words Hurt as Well as Sticks and Stones (Part I)

Generational Curses 102: Parenting Styles

This post was inspired by a video I saw on Instagram which talks about “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome.” It gives a brief explanation about why parents (descendants of slaves) behave the way they do. I found it quite insightful and helped me understand why I experienced certain things growing up as a child. It’s no secret that how we behave stems from interactions with family, friends etc. What if these people were unaware of the traumas experienced by ancestors and classed their traits and mannerisms as cultural? What if they… Read more Generational Curses 102: Parenting Styles

The SAD Months

I have been MIA for a week, and I couldn’t be bothered. For those who know me; I am positive, productive, passionate and organised. I feel lethargic and want to sleep all the time. I usually feel this way around winter; when there is less daylight, and it’s cold. I thought I was going crazy, but other people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I didn’t think this was a thing for I always had warm temperatures in Grenada (over 23 degrees). When I first moved to NY, it was… Read more The SAD Months

Generation Curses 101

During my introspection, the term ‘generational curse’ appeared a lot in my feed. It seemed like an entirely new concept as I couldn’t recall anyone speaking about it growing up. I did my research, but it was quite hard to find a proper definition. Based on what I read, I came up with this explanation. Generational curses are misfortunes experienced based on negative traits inherited. I heard the concept growing up. It was used to explain “why a person had a mental defect”, “experienced multiple miscarriages”, “involved in voodoo”, “poverty”… Read more Generation Curses 101
