    Insanity's definition:

    Repetition of routine

    With new expectations

    How about a divergence

    A whole new provision

    Not a routine revision

    But a total departure

    From your usual M.O.

    Break out of the mold

    Swim against the current

    And dare to be one of a kind

    An original genuine masterpiece

    Follow the beat of your own drum

    Your own unique rhythm found within

    For you can only truly start succeeding

    Until you start living up to the true you

    The you that God purposed for you to be

    Is it just a coincidence that your words form the shape of a female's body? I'm really feeling this joint. Yes! when each one of our lives was crafted Jah had a plan and purpose for us. Unfortunately life steps in and what was once promised is forgotten.We begin thinking that we are in control of what the out come will be, when in reality WE need to get out of our own way! Be Blessed!
    and Thank You :)

    living up to the true you...

    something some of us are afraid to do. afraid to step outside the box. afraid to step out on that limb. afraid to go beyond the comfortable of everyday living when given the opportunity to live life to the full. still, we claim to be in control.:) when we can't even control our fears.

    THANK YOU.
