A New Years Poem

 

Redemption by Wanda Jefferson

I want you to want me
As much as I want you
I want to be given great rewards
Because of what I went through

In our past ….I lost a lot of people
A lot of family
A lot of friends
Money
Respect
And sanity….. to no end

I know all things are possible
And that you can be different
If you allow your ingenuity
to revive us again

With what I know now
I can do better
I can beat the weather
I can ride….. any storm

I will meet new people
Find lost family
New friends
And reform

I will gain wealth
Keep bad thoughts stealth
With a mix of wisdom & meds
To improve my mental health

For your only 17 once….2000
So listen clearly and hear the truth
Let this… your birthday be your redemption
And mine…..of course too.

With so many memories that will last
At some moments I have smiled
Sometimes I was sad and toiled
O new year bring me a new beginning

5 Habits I will KEEP for the New Year…And so Should You — ordinarilyextraordinarymom

If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE a resolution. However, with the onset of the new year, I thought I would instead take a moment to acknowledge the habits I will keep. I have done enough transitioning, end-of-the-year resolutioning, and adjusting. I peeled away layer after layer and found a core […]

The Best Under-$20 Deep Conditioners for Dry, Curly Hair — StyleCaster

Curly hair is like a needy, fussy house plant. It requires constant moisture, a temperate climate, and some sweet words of encouragement, and then even after your most diligent upkeep, it will almost always turn into a shriveled piece of garbage without warning and for no reason. And that’s curly hair on a normal day.…
