Soulful Strut ~~ Pitkin Avenue

29 Nov

Brooklyn, New York ~~ Today’s Soulful Strut took me from Rockaway Avenue where I made a right turn onto Pitkin Avenue. I walked along Pitkin Avenue all the way to Howard Avenue. The photos of the little guy in the flower pot and the cookie message were taken 11/28/2015 along Ralph Avenue.

Accountability for a Soulless Classroom

29 Nov

Points to Ponder. Food for Thought. Are we just raising automatons/robots fit only for the 9-5 grind? When will individuality be valued?

When theatre has no place in schools, outcomes will decline

A dream plays second fiddle to the “rounding” of a child

Kid’s worth, is in a value, yet dreams don’t make their file

A boy is deemed as gifted, assumptions from a score

Yet, care is void for content prescribed in Common Core

His train of thought is never taught, so why would he engage

He yearns for ovations while standing center stage

Since birth the boy was dancing, while being bottle-fed

His tippy toes, were tapping shows before, he’d found his tread

Music brought a smile, when screams were all he knew

Daddy finds his mother’s face, and paints it black and blue

Headphones in, he danced from grim, fleeing homely hell

A grieving face is what’s embraced, without savior from…

Self-Hate: Criticising God’s Work

8 Nov

Loving Yourself is a good thing for you are God’s Masterpiece!!

Elena & Gal

This post was inspired by a recent conversation with a friend. We both went through something, that got us thinking about the practice of self-hate and self-criticism, and how disrespectful it is to God. So, let me begin.

Although, I used to really struggle with self esteem and body image issues, I grew out of that and became more confident with age. I learned to appreciate the imperfections and recognise the beautiful parts of myself. It might sound like a paradox to some, but I do not think that loving yourself is selfish. When you love yourself, including your body and your personality, you love God’s design and you respect His decision to make you a certain way. However, from time to time, I still find myself practising severe self-criticism. It’s like I can hear the enemy’s whisper in my ear things like: ‘You are not worthy of love!’, ‘Why would…
