On days you don’t feel like going, just go.
Never be too quick to judge a book by it‘s cover.
Wow, happy Saturday, the week moved by so quickly, not to mention the month is flying.
My good thoughts today have been inspired by Chronixx and Kabaka Pyramid song entitled SAME PRAYER…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzhqxnWlqgo
It reminds me that no matter what, I should keep praying to my God, whoever that is, we have a soul connection which to me is more important than any other connection. it also reminded me that God won’t get tired of listening to the same prayer, he will never leave.
” Jah carry me through everything, I have no fear for anything, Jah give me all the strength I need to make it through this world I was born in, Rastafari is my peace of mind , Jah thank you for your love and kindness, for every drop of air I breathe and for waking me up this morning”
Kabaka Pyramid sings:
“In me going out and me coming in please watch over I, protect mi family when I nuh localize, we a trod through these streets keep mi focus right, nuh oversight”
“But with you as my guide and shield any pain I man feel, time will heal.”
Powerful, positive and inspirational words coming from these two, I am very proud and happy with their art which shows their heart.
Remember it isn’t selfish to take some time for yourself. A healthy body, mind and soul requires rest and self-love.Tweet
The elderly should be treated with kindness and respect no matter how ‘not nice’ they might be (they have been around longer than US, they probably have a reason to be bitter, who knows, they have been around longer and knows more than us. Also remember for all the ‘not so nice’ ones there will be the sweetest, kindest, loving elderly will follow, that will fill your heart with so much joy and your brain with historic stories
Let us protect our elderly. Always.
Remember once a man, twice a child.
Be kind to everyone you encounter today, they might be facing challenges that are weighing them down, so even if they are not kind to you be kind to them.
March 22, 2020
Wah Gwan Readers!
I decided to crawl out of the hole where I was hiding for me not to get to blogging but… At last…
Here I am…I crawled out.
Quick summary on 2020. (I mean, it is only March)
This year has been a roller-coaster ride and currently, this roller-coaster got stuck and now has the entire world upside-down, we are all patiently waiting for this ride to continue rolling and of course, you all probably know exactly why I am here.
Yup, the city I currently live in is slowly closing down because of COVID-19.
You know the big bad virus the World Health Organization (WHO) classified as a Pandemic on March 11, 2020. #Pandemic
Nobody at all:
The Entire World (especially Jamaicans) :
DEN A WAH DIS???
Presidents and Prime Ministers Everywhere :
SHUT IT DOWN!!!
Never in my life have I experience such ‘drama’ such as the one that is happening now. Honestly, the blessing behind this, is that it is not just one country’s problem it is a worldwide problem and we are all facing this together. And for that reason, it makes it LESS hard to deal with and a little bit more comforting to know that the entire world can relate to each other from behind our screens.
You know, because social distancing is a thing now.
Many citizens across the world (including myself) are unable to go home to their motherland even if they wanted to. Borders have been closed, flights and sea travels have been restricted. Basically, the world has come to a halt and all travelling have ceased.
What does that mean for the dreamers who want to be travellers? Should they give up on their dreams?
NO, we are not giving up- we will overcome. The World is facing an obstacle that will make us stronger and better than before.
I know I am not the only one thinking about the days, weeks and months ahead. We are all thinking and wondering if life will be the same after this…
I am here to tell you, life will not be the same after we have recovered from this Pandemic. There has to be a change for us NOT to experience this roller-coaster ride again and I have already accepted that.
My advice is that we should accept the pandemic, it is already here, it is already happening, just accept it. Secondly, the preparation of our mindset for the adaptation of the changes that are about to happen. Thirdly, if you are not working just be productive, be productive, find something to do. JUST TRY!
Remember all those times you wished you had more time to do more things to better yourself…
Most importantly… it is really the ability to adapt to the circumstances is what will keep us afloat. We should not be fearful even though it is in our human nature…
So hear what you do, just say…
“Hello fear, how are you doing today?”
It is scary, we are all scared but having that little faith and optimism as small as a mustard seed will take us far.
I am probably not the only one that is looking into themselves and realizing that they have surpassed the number of times they ever washed and hand sanitize their hands for any given year and as I said… it is only March of 2020.
That is my reality.
The Lord is my light and my salvation. I shall not be afraid of this pandemic.
Have a blessed day.
Thanks for reading.
Yes, I know I have been at a distance for a very long time… However I got inspired to write a blog.
So here I am..
I was waiting for this moment and it finally arrived.
I have been trying to figure out life and all this adult-ing shit that comes with it and I oftentimes feel very overwhelmed with what’s going on…
…Like overwhelmed, overwhelmed to the point where I wonder if I am doing too much, doing too little, doing the wrong things or I just don’t know how to say no?
I am understanding that I work off my energy, my energy tells me what I see myself doing or what I NEED to be doing, of course, my energy comes from the guidance of God……or at least that is my belief 🙂
Am I doing enough to give myself the successful life I dream of?
I oftentimes ask myself that because of who I am as a person…
My energy vibrates on a much higher wavelength than any other. I know because I have spent enough time with myself to be confident enough to say what I just said…
Yet I still question myself …
“Am I enough? ”
“Am I going to be better?”
“Are my enough?”
In asking myself these negative questions I fall into the trap of actually thinking and feeling as if I am not enough and that I am not doing enough. I then think about all the things that need to be accomplished and the weight becomes so unbearable and I eventually crash, then I stumble.
The mental burden is real…
Your thoughts are so important to your happiness and your well-being.
The thought I want to leave with you my loves, my supporters, my readers is the fact that once again.. I am learning acceptance.
Accepting where I am in life at this very moment is very important, wishing for things to be different is a waste of my energy…
Acceptance is a more efficient use of my energy, by simply accepting what is happening… right now… in my life.
I am having the honey bee mentality which is always a win…
All I do each day is accept my life and allow myself to see the positivity in every situation..where I see my growth and if I can see a little light that simply means there is hope and there are more opportunities out there for me in this life, so I need to do what it takes and KEEP GOING.
USING ALL THE ENERGY IT TAKES FOR ME TO KEEP GOING in order for me to see the light at the end of the tunnel because I already know it is there.
For me this means there is a way out, no matter how a day might look dark, there are going to be sunny days ahead of me.
I MUST BE GRATEFUL!
I MUST GIVE THANKS!
NO MATTER WHAT.
Current song: Can’t hold we down by Kano (Ft. Popcaan)
I love it because I just saw Popcaan’s growth, I remember him in his video ‘Dream’ to now seeing him in this video with Kano wearing his Moncler puffer jacket.
I see that.
That came with not giving up on yourself and I am happy that I was reminded of that.
If I should look at all the negatives in my life it would lead me astray. Yeah, we all have those negative thoughts as humans but that is where we should remember to always overcome and allow the day to happpen and MOVE ON.
I am learning not to overthink and not to worry. I oftentimes find myself worrying about a moment that has not even arrived…what helps me is having faith, hope and belief in my life.
I will reinforce that… just simply have faith, hope, and belief that your future will be better and better with each stage in life…
& ACCEPTING that there are going to be some real shit days because trust me love there are more character-building days ahead of us!
Keep going my love.
Thank you for reading.

What a blessing to see the sunrise on July 1, 2019.
I am thankful.
I know I have been totally MIA and I like being honest with you guys it was due to the fact that I did not have anything to say, i was not inspired and it was a really struggle to blog. But I said to myself
“Kris, sometimes you just have to start typing and everything falls in place.”
So here I am.
I want to claim happiness, success and growth in July. This month is really a big deal for me, many changes are happening and as the time gets closer I get scared and fearful but I also have a strong voice in my head that says “FUCK YOU FEAR” and I try not to discuss my decisions with anyone, even though having a second opinion from someone who has experience is good it can be challenging and confusing due to the fact that no one is the same and we all think differently. Along with being reminded that your path will be different from others, we all have a path that is special and unique to us, even on the outside it might look the same. In all this excitement and changes that is happening in my life I want to remember to have faith in God, he carried me THIS FAR! I am where I am because of GOD protecting me and covering me under his blood, no doubt about that. I have seen and experience his work and I am patiently waiting to see what he has in store for me.
Cheers to July!

Thanks For Reading
I appreciate you🙏🏿
One of the best decision to date was the fact I left my home country the third largest Caribbean ISLAND to LIVE, in the worlds second largest country. Anyone who told your that their transition from living in one country to the next is easy and fabulous probably lied and I said probably 😂🤷🏿♀️
We the North! 🇨🇦
“No no, I will pay for it”
Yesterday I was reflecting on my life and telling someone how I am pretty Canadianized, lol. 100% Jamaican and I absolutely love my country but I have really adapted to the Canadian culture in a number of way, I have my favourite Canadian meals and bevearages, I find a sunny 11 degrees Celsius the perfect kind of weather, I enjoy the easiest of meals, still love to cook though… so many other things. 😂
True gratitude was when I realized how necessary Canada was for my growth both physically and mentally, developing my disciplinary skills allowed me to practice faith and patience at a deeper level which allowed me to be closer to God. I am still learning that you can’t stay one place for too long, you have to to go find yourself in the world 🌎, you have to take scary jumps, these jumps are not easy but I needed Canada so I could have matured in the beautiful young lady I am today.
I will always be thankful for my journey and opportunities that I have received and I say thank you in advance for opportunities that are on its way and are already mine, thank you. 🥰
