Take Care Of Yourself

Water Self

 

If you take care of yourself, then everyone(thing) you worry about taking care of is already taken care of. It starts with YOU. ✌️❤️

Happy Calendar Number Change 😘
If indeed this is a new season for you: wear your bravado and let it be all shades of beautiful ❤️👑🎉

You are destined for more than just greatness, Moor child!
You are the seed of kings & gods.
The heir to the throne of the Kingdom Of Melanin(Life).
You might be shaken or slightly moved;
But the conquering is yours to do. Ungasabi😘🔥

Take care of yourself and the greatest part of the battle is won!

McFenda ft Miss Concept & DK – Rise Again Lyrics

Rise Again Lyrics - TheCharleenMaheryNarratice

Lyrics to McFenda/DK/MissConcept “Rise Again”, compiled on House Afrika Sessions 5

This is the moment that we rise again.
This is the moment we live again.
Forget all your worries.
Forget all your fears.
Forget all your troubles
And live your dream
 
This is the moment that we rise again.
This is the moment we live again
Forget all your worries.
Forget all your fears.
Forget all your troubles.
And live your dream
Live your dream…
Live your dream…
Live your dream…
 
Peace and blessings
Love and all the other things;
So mistifying
They justify why-oh-why you should be happy
Open your arms. Embrace the gift of life.
Take it in your hands And cast the rubbish to the side
You owe it to yourself. You owe it to yourself…
To Yourself
 
This is the moment that we rise again.
This is the moment we live again
Forget all your worries.
Forget all your fears.
Forget all your troubles
And live your dream
 
Forget all your worries.
Forget all your fears.
Forget all your troubles
And live your dream
Forget all your worries.
Forget all your fears.
Forget all your troubles
And live your dream
 
The road may get a lil’ rough right now.
It’s time we get a lil’ tough right now
Just fight it.
We gon’ survive it
The road may get a lil’ rough right now
It’s time we get a lil’ tough right now
Just fight it
We gon’ survive it
 
Yeah, struggles pass; quick and fast.
I just wanna make now last.
We’ll fight it
We gon’ survive it
Struggles pass, quick and fast.
I just wanna make now last.
We’ll fight it.
We gon’ survive it.
 
 
(Bass Guitar Solo – DK)
 
 
Where did you put your smile?
Where did you leave your jive?
Why don’t you live your life?
Why don’t you live your life?
And Rise Again…
 
Where did you put your smile?
Why don’t you live your life?
Why don’t you live your life?
And Rise Again…
And Rise Again…
And Rise Again…
Rise again…

#MCM: KHALID – BREATH OF FRESH SOUL

CyeTALaUQAAN7O3.jpg

Recently came across this young, Texan, grizzly bear; with a remarkable voice – might I spice – when an acquaintance of mine played a song of his “Location” on our drive to our herbalist.

I was taken aback by his laid-back, casual and effortless sound. Soft, subtle, somewhat spiritual singing. The kind that VVVIP-tag passes through your ears; right through your mind, heart & soul and settles in your being.

I wanted more!!!

Now, apparently this Khaled has been making the waves… Me not being aware of this is pretty normal, I never know what’s trending and I don’t really care to seek it out of daily living. I’ve always been the trendsetter anyway. (Yes, of cause.)

I got home later that evening and checked him out. The greatest thing I did for myself at that point – I fell in love.

Khalid Robinson (born February 11, 1998), known mononymously as Khalid (pronounced ‘KUH-LeeD’), is an American singer and songwriter from El Paso, Texas. He is signed to Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records. He is best known for his debut single, “Location“, which has peaked at number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 which is currently his highest-charting single and has gone platinum – (Wikipedia)

I got his album, American Teen and listened to it all night and all day. I could not believe all that soul seeped out of a 19 year old (At first I couldn’t believe he’s 19 but abelungu bathi ‘Don’t judge a book blaze-blah-woopti-woo’.) I thought they don’t make them like this anymore,

From the first track – which is also the title of his debut album – American Teen, I got Goosebumps!!!

“American Teen is the debut studio album by American R&B recording artist Khalid. It was released on March 3, 2017, by Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records. The album was supported by the singlesLocation“, and “Young Dumb & Broke””

The album begins with 2 vibey tracks – American Teen and Young, Dumb & Broke (A personal favourite) – and switches right on to hit single, Location. From there, all the soul is spilled into your ears with mellow and soulful songs that you will want to listen to over-and-over again.

I love every song on the album; I however have a few real favourites like:

  • Young, Dumb & Broke
  • Location
  • Coaster
  • Cold Blooded
  • Winter
  • Therapy
  • Shot Down
  • Angels
  • Hopeless

Once you check it out, you’ll realise that list of favourites is basically the whole album.

As new as this is, I can’t wat for another offering from him. I get the sense that this is just the tip of the iceberg; maturity and experience will breed a beast out of this Texan Grizzly Bear (Who I find so Yum-Yum-And-Dope). I look forward to whatever else he has to offer in the future.

He’s my man crush every day! I’m such a fan!!!

ReTake

It’s been a while since I’ve interacted through this page – forgot my password and frankly, my fire for blogging was amiss – but I’m trying to change that and use it like before – probably a little better even.

I’ll still share my poetry and also share other writing I do and my music.

I’ll share bits and pieces of my self too; my mood, my motivation, the music I like, books, holiday destinations, and basically everything I find interesting and worth allowing to linger in my mind.

I’m a lover of all things beautiful and I am open to interactions with like-minded individuals. Lets connect!

Enjoy the Sunday and have a glorious week!

The Woman And Her Struggles

Charleen Mahery

Charleen aka Miss Concept

 

Very often I understand when a woman is moody because I take things like hormones and general life into consideration.

Even though men know the biological reason for a woman’s mood swings, I often feel that they don’t understand in depth why women are a lil moody more often than hardly.

Lemme explain it to you like this:
(This is not something I was taught in a class somewhere. This is based on my experience and other females around me)

• There a 4weeks in a month.

• In those 4weeks, a woman has only one “normal” week.

• The week before her period, her body is changing. Tender breasts, an uncomfortable feeling in her abdomen, etc.

• Then comes the period. 4-7days of pain that you can’t really do much about. How can a person bleed for so many days and not be in pain?

• Then the week after the period. The recovery. The mood swings kick in proper during this time hence the term PMS (Post Menstrual Sydrome)

During all 3 weeks, she has to keep a normal pace in life and still drag a smile around.

• Then there are those normal 7-10days that you just see her glowing all the time.

Would you not be moody if you went through all that? I actually think we handle it well. We could be monsters.

That’s just something I’d like you to take into consideration when you come up with these “Women are this & that” theories.

Bless
