Wounds Present Opportunity

Wounds present opportunity. But we more than often look upon them as an incurable disease. I am (like all of us) a perpetrator of hurt and a victim of hurt. There are areas of my divine being that still hurt today, and my being human predisposes me to being hurt tomorrow. All because wounds present opportunity.

If you take credit for your growth then you must also assume accountability for your weakening. A life lived in absence of pain is a life absent of the need to become stronger.
Contrary to common belief, Continue reading Wounds Present Opportunity

Her Beauty Not Her Looks

From the transitory stages of physical appearance to abstract modern art, beauty has become one of the most versatile nouns bestowed upon the human tongue. All become acquiescent in it’s presence, and that in itself is why the word takes precedence over all the dictionary has to offer.

It’s as though beauty exists an entity that illuminates the life force that resides in all things. But what happens when the beauty that exist within does not appear on the surface? Continue reading Her Beauty Not Her Looks

His & Hers: The Orgasm Rant

  • Today’s attitude toward gender equality in contrast to the 19th & 20th century shows promise for what’s to come.
  • Many men still believe in gender allocations, and there are women that believe it’s a man’s job to make her orgasm.
  • He embraced her waist from the rear and positioned her in close proximity to his libidinous intentions.
  • An orgasm isn’t just a physical experience. And at times, we have to be in the condition to receive it.

Post Industrial Economy: Reclaiming your creative mind

“Creativity is the birthright of every human being” – Chairmain Kato

The industrial economy for most is very much the only reality that exists. These people perceive their working life as intended by those that shaped the educational institutions they were reformed from. The industrial economy refers to a historic method of working whereby companies created machines that required people to operate them. At the time, people were considered invaluable cogs to the results of ideas that ameliorated the state of the economy. Fast forward to today, the consumer is being familiarised with a robotic era in which you’re greeted by an automated entity in customer services, self-service checkouts and delivery drones. People in the workplace are becoming obsolete. But I can no longer see this as a bad thing. In fact, it is necessary. Continue reading Post Industrial Economy: Reclaiming your creative mind

Filtering The Natural Back Into Beauty

“Filtering The Natural Back Into Beauty” is a project that aims to speaks substance to every man and woman that has been conditioned to believe beauty only exists through the use of makeup.
The project aims to inspire all hidden beauty to surface from the shadows of makeup.
Makeup has its purpose as an enhancer of natural beauty, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but the first step to destroying beauty is by hiding it.

The Misinterpretation of Loneliness

Like many others, man is a social creature. But we spend vast amounts of our time observing other people from the sidelines while they engage in an activity we were designed to participate in. Observing from the sidelines has become an activity in itself! Just moments ago, I was scrolling aimlessly through my Facebook timeline (as you do), having lost interest in the timelines that of Instagram and Twitter. Once I grew weary of Facebook, I closed the app and moved on to the next. In less then 2 seconds of closing the app, I had instinctively reopened Facebook again. This was no accident, and it wasn’t the first occurrence either. This behavior was not indicative of poor use of time but more so a deficit in something integral to our daily active lives: social activity. Continue reading The Misinterpretation of Loneliness

The Identity of an Insecure Man (Part 1)

image

You know him well, don’t you?
To say only a handful of women have met him would underestimate an insecure man’s ability to infect his host.
Playing host to his desires is a modern day synonym for catering to his insecurities.
You fell for his potential while he observed your potential as a new home where his insecurities could run wild, like how a young teenager treats responsibility; he’s been running from himself for far too long.

When one becomes familiar with their flaws, change can feel uncomfortable.
So as he observes how you’re blinded by a NEED to be with someone, because your loneliness is a world you no longer want to live in, the human tendency to succumb to lust paints a perfect path.

His insecurities breech your unguarded wits, the backdoor to your soul can be felt through your hips.
You were left wide open.
In hindsight, one should have known better but since that moment felt like the limelight, nothing feels better.
Is it rhetorical to ask whether you deserved better than having your flame blown out so that his diminishing flicker can appear bright?
Hm…
The truth is your confidence is the foundation of your beauty.
If you allow someone to take it from you then you’ll forever be looking for who you are in someone else.

A Kiss Laced With Purpose

image

On purpose and with purpose, not each to his own.
A man knows why he places his lips upon a woman’s own.
And although his intentions may be unknown to her,
A kiss is evidence that his intentions are far from a blur.

The Fault In Our Unconditional Love

You see, I’m a believer in a leopard changing it’s spots. In fact, to put the correctly, I’m a believer in reading that the spots that some people wear are momentary existences within an even bigger existence I refer to as their life. If you don’t believe in growth, change and looking upon people with present and not past eyes, then I pity you. I pity you because I now see how you look at yourself. And what a lonely world it must be to be a slave to your own past.

Everyone has an old wardrobe. Clothes that tell stories of where they have been, what they have done and even what they used to like. Some of us are embarrassed of our old wardrobe. We look at the clothes that still linger like… “daaamn” I can’t believe I used to wear clothes like that. But we laugh it off. Why? Because we live for the clothes we wear today.

Change the way you view yourself and you’ll change the way you view others. Change the way you view others and you’ll change the way you view yourself. But always begin with the former. That’s where the true challenge and change lies. And then maybe, just maybe, you’ll catch a slight glimmer of what it would be like to truly love unconditionally.
