Investing in Y.O.U.
April is the time of year where everyone is doing their taxes
Some are looking for those tax breaks and looking for investments.
My question that I always ask is what about you?
Have you invested in getting your annual exam to make sure your health is on track?
Have you planned your spa days to unplug and unwind?
What about date nights with your love?
Are you exercising?
What I mean by the questions is that when we select to invest in stocks and bonds and don't invest in
ourselves who will reap the harvest if we're gone because we're not taking care of ourselves?
Not to be negative but to enlighten and get others to think
I stopped going out to dinner daily and started cooking at home
Pulling out my mother's china that she left to me and enjoying each chew of the food I prepared .
Reminiscing looking at the plates thinking about how she only brought the china out for special occasions.
Now I am reaping her harvest.
You heard the saying if I can go back in time with the knowledge I have now?
If that's what I could do I would laugh more, travel more, dance more.
I would match my investment in myself with rewarding myself with every time I did it with looking in the
mirror with a smile.
People would wonder why when they see me that I am always smiling.
I challenge you to try it.
I will be looking for that smile

Beating the clock before I go . Letting the words flow to the paper from my mind. People reading my work say " I couldn't put it down" " I read your book in one day" and " It was like you were writing my life story". The poems touch on subjects of love, death, incest, testing faith, and more. There is tributes to MLK, 9/11 and Oscar Grant.
