Alien Invasion?

Alien Invasion?

Relax; it’s not an alien invasion.  What’s your first thought when you look at the image?  Many see an alien hiding in a human’s body; others see an alien removing skin.  I see neither. I see what many of us are going through every day. We are living a life that is totally different from the one we envisage ourselves in.  We show one side of ourselves to the world, the persona we created and perfected just so we can fit in with everyone else, not knowing it is okay to be different, be an alien.  We eventually become a person that we don’t even recognize when we look in the mirror. We get mentally, physically, and emotionally distorted, confused, and uncomfortable. It’s sad because it is true; many people not only in Jamaica, but across the world are forced to hide in plain sight or chan...
Break Up Process

Break Up Process

All good things must come to an end ~ Geoffrey Chaucer People believe that a break up is simple; you cry for a week then move on.  Is that the case for everyone?  Do you run to another guy/girl after exiting a relationship?  Do you take another drink or eat yourself to death? When the relationship comes to an end, what should I do? Many will agree that the breakup process is just like the grieving process, it involves: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.  Time heals all wounds, I must agree, but my length of time will not be yours, as such, you and I shouldn't rush another person when they are going through this phase. There is so much on your mind when you go through a break-up.  After doing my research I came to the conclusion that the length o...

Budgeting

The dreaded B word haunts us again as each payday approaches us; it is quite hard for us to budget especially because every month after you’ve paid your bills, it is hard to save the $10 that is left to bring us back to work.  I most recently purchased something quite expensive and I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how I was able to purchase this at such a tender age of twenty (20) years old as well as going on vacations and so much more. The truth is I do a lot of planning, budgeting, and sacrificing; my methods are extreme and to give you a hit of how extreme I get, I’ll bring with me exactly $230 every day and that only includes fare to and from my house, yes, I do bring lunch and breakfast and water so I do not need to spend any other money apart from my fare. ...

Step out of your comfort zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” It’s sad when someone gives up on their dreams and more often than not, many of us throw in the towel for good way too early. Many times we end up in situations and we begin to bicker and get miserable forgetting one important point, we are the only ones that are holding ourselves back. There are many people right now that are intimidated by you because they know your potential, they see what you can become. Instead of discovering and capitalizing on our talent, we keep it in reserve until we lose it. After conducting my research I found that one in every five respondents stated that situations change and their dream of becoming the next big thing gets placed on the top of the bookshelf. “My child comes first.” “I'm getting ...
