We, women, often give our hearts unintentionally.
So we have to INTENTIONALLY not give it away.
There are things a woman does that cause her to unconsciously give her heart to someone, I won’t go elaborate it because deep in our hearts we know what these are.
And remember, he cannot break your heart if he does not have it.
I never ventured toward this side of town for two reasons.
1. I fear for my safety
I take my stereotypes very seriously. A friend once told me that wanderers should stick to Manhattan (Harlem excluded) due to safety concerns. Urban legends also suggest people being chopped and placed in bottles in this side of town, so I never really gave it a second thought. Also, I’m an asian and definitely smaller than most of the people here. They always seem to think I’m 16 years old which doesn’t in any way help my “I’m tough poker face”. One look at me and the big ones will think it’s a piece of cake. Gulp. And it totally doesn’t help that I can’t run to save my life. So, I try to obey them and steer clear.
2. I honestly never knew it was nice Plainly put, I never knew what Brooklyn had in store for me until I finally took to the L train with a few friends to Bedford ave.
Now that I have seen it, I have found myself raving about it.
And this is why.
Seeing streets plastered with manic displays get you hyped!
Even corners get interesting! one of my favorites.
You get a glimpse of what people stand for.
A pretty face,doesn’t mean a pretty heart.

I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That’s how it often is. God’s voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.
—Nicholas Sparks (The Last Song)
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….The chain reaction of evil—hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars—must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.
—Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.
“People who are obsessed with Jesus give freely & openly, without censure. Obsessed people love those who hate them & who can never love them back”-Francis Chan, Crazy Love
There are no words to describe yesterday. It just was. But I’m okay with that. God has, without a shadow of a doubt, put it in my heart to just let things go. To let things be whether I find fault or not. The energy used to rebuttal is not worth it. It’s better to just have peace. Although from here on out I’ve made the decision to be positive about things. God has showed me this, through the actions & words of people I absolutely adore, life lessons, & the little things. Each day is brand new. It’s overwhelming, for sure. But I find joy in it all.It’s what I needed. To just be anchored in the wonders of life, in blessings, adventures & trials. I intended for it to be straight to the point. If you have health, you are blessed. We tend to worry about our problems. It’s only natural to do so. But it could be worse. I try to hold on to that. So regardless if there’s times when how I feel about things can get the best of me, I’m reminded that there are worse things. It’s best to just face it & move forward.
God, thank you for giving me a heart to love hard & to appreciate that I do. Friends, thank you for your company & affirmation. I love you.
