Sunday – Let’s Talk Food With Lady K.

Goddess morning Royals 👑. First, give praise and worship to the all High.

This is for thought not for eating. The consumption is to put a lot of thinking into this food for thought.

If you’ve been eating off someone else’s plate for a while or all your life, you can’t get upset when they don’t allow it anymore. This just mean that they can no longer starve trying to feed the both of you based on your consumption. That’s right you eat more than your share and it is weighing on them, mentally, financially, emotionally and spiritually.

They don’t want to cut you off but you leave them no other choice. You don’t have a fall back, you’re rude like it isn’t a blessing, but like it is mandatory. You don’t have a thank you bone in your body. When there’s no money 🤑, no couch 🛋 to lay on, no free meal 🍜 or no free ride 🛀🏎️✈️, you feel as though the love 💔 is gone. It’s not! It’s just that the person you’ve been using had finally seen or had their eyes opened to the truth.

Question is what the hell do you, as a user, do now? Get off your lazy ass and start to fend for yourself! Do you not feel less than when someone else does everything for you? Of course not, you feel privileged, like it’s owed to you. Even children grow up into their own and independence. They go from crawling, to waking, to running. When they fall they expect Mommy and Daddy to pick them up a few times, then after while they get up and try again, but not you. When a child is first learning separation they cry, well some and some can’t wait to get away from their parents at an early age, see independence; still not you. If a 5 years old certainly make change and accept it so can you.

No one was promised to take care of you your whole life, just in the beginning and at the end. Don’t make anyone regret their choice by exploiting them with guilt, just man up or woman up and take one for yourself! The team will be happy you did.

Don’t take people kindness for granted because that just pushes then away and when you need them most they won’t be there. Where will your reality be when it happens?

Sending you all love and kisses. #GoodessLove

Saturday, Sit Down With Lady K.

Goddess morning Royals 👑. First, give praise and worship to the all High.

Ladies, ladies, ladies! Is it time to clean out the closet… literally and figuratively? Emotionally, we like to attach ourself to things we believe we can’t let go because of sentimental reasons but in reality we can’t let go of the person whether they hurt us or not. If we let go we let go; of what we think was a great memory, in fact turns if to be just a bag of lies. For some of us I will give it to you, when it’s over, baby girl it’s over. You don’t look back you don’t shed a tear. You don’t reminisce over it. You act like it didn’t even happen. After talking to you about somethings I see the pain, hurt and empty void, that is now your defense mechanism. You remind yourself never to trust, love, or lower your defense every again.

I get it and if that’s how it have to be then, I’m all for it, but in the same sense you are depriving yourself happiness, joy, love and peace. Your health isn’t right and you can’t understand why, it’s because you honest that bad energy in your closet of emotions. You rather chew live wire than to give yourself a second to think about what happened in that relationship. Clean it out, throw away that anger, hostility, misery and reclaim your ability to love, trust, and your health. It’s your closet only you can clean it out! No one else can get in there and clean out what you need to throw away. You can do it, I can see the pile of unnecessary, intoxicating, unessential things in the trash already.

Fellas, fellas, fellas! Did you all really think I was only talking to the ladies? You know if I have love for one I have love for all. You know your closet is just as dirty as the ladies and you need to clean it as well. It’s a different for you all because while you are a pile of mess, you still want to stay face around people. I wish it was only the fellas, but it’s the ladies as well. Fellas some women love a man who is able to express his emotions, feelings, and wants. We don’t have time to be guessing. Tell us like you want us to tell you. Don’t say men aren’t emotional because that’s a lie, reason most kill, hurt, punish, and fight others in a rage. Sometimes it’s not even jealousy it’s just a emotional state and they aren’t able to express themselves properly so they take it out on others. Instead of confronting the person in their life, who caused them hurt, pain, and mental anguish, with calm and rational thoughts.

Grab the broom, dust pan and trash can, because it is time to get rid of all the mistrust, infidelity, hostility, and pain. It is time to love, trust, compromise, and live again. If you are always angry, but at the wrong person, then you’re not living; you’re existing and that’s not healthy. Take it one step at a time so that you can be in a fidelity accountable relationship wherein you can honestly be happy, loved, and stable. Dead or in jail is no place to be when all you want is to be loved.

I know we can all do it… there’s hope for us all.

Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove

Freaky Friday – Happy Valentine’s Day

Goddess morning Royals 👑. First, praise and worship to the all High.

This is a special time of the year for a lot of people. Their hearts are filled with joy and excitement, not sure what their sweethearts are bringing home. Their anticipation is intoxicating and they are drunk with love. Women I hope that he isn’t the only one going out to get his love a gift. Ladies show your man you can be just as romantic as he can. Go out and buy him something that will light a smile in his face and joy in his heart. No a nice piece is lingerie isn’t what I’m talking about. That’s for you and for him to look at and take off. Would you like it if he came with a nice clothing item for him, for you to take off and admire? No, so do something nice for him like you expect him to do something nice for you.

How about this year you take him out for dinner? You buy him a nice time piece (watch), a pinky ring, necklace, hat, shoes, suit, sweatsuit, a coat or jacket since it is getting warm, something. Men want to feel appreciated as well. They want to know that you care for them like they care for you. It’s not hard to show your appreciation like you expect them to show you theirs. Ladies you got this, don’t let him down.

Fellas, do I really need to tell you that those tired ass flowers and chocolate isn’t going to cut it this year. Come on isn’t that quick stop at the corner getting to routine. The guy knows you by name. Put thought into it and mean it from the bottom of your heart. Now some ladies don’t mind money but it just says I don’t know you enough to know what you would like. Give her plane tickets to somewhere you two haven’t been. Make reservation at her favorite hotel and give her a weekend she’ll never forget. Jewelry is a great gift but if that’s what you always do then switch it up. Don’t let her think she knows you and that you are predictable.

Kings should sacrifice the kingdom for their Queens. Queens should move the castle for their Kings. Not only in Valentine’s day but everyday to ensure that they are appreciated, loved, wanted, and desired. No if’s ands or buts!

Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove
