WITH MY PEN AND PAPER I WRITE

YOUR WORDS ARE WHAT PEOPLE REMEMBER YOU BY
With my pen and paper .I speak to you.
I speak the unspeakable.
I give voice to the silenced those ,that are never recognized.
I shed light on the darkness and release the trapped.

With my pen and paper  .
I write to free my soul, so that my voice will be heard.
I use my words as a tool. A weapon to heal , to restore and to awaken.

With my pen and paper .
I write my dreams and hopes .
 As i release the pain of past wounds, and find hope in my new found love through my daughters eyes.

With my pen and paper.
I escape into a different time, space and world.
Here love is all we know, and  the world is less cruel, and give us the urgency of change.

With my pen and paper.
I live through words brought by feelings of those I  relate with and become one with those  that inspire me and those that I hope to inspire.

With my pen and paper .
I give  love and hope. I give realness and not fiction.
I create awareness and hope that my words create a positive impact in our  society.

With my pen and paper.
I pay homage to those who wrote on tissue in their jail cells as a way to let the people into their minds while they were in isolation.
For some of literature's finest that where sentenced because their freedom of expression  cost them their freedom.

With my pen and paper
I create .I live. I aspire.
For there is power in words and i want my words to be a reflection of who i am and what i stand  for.
My words will be my legacy and will live on even when i am no more.

WHEN BURDENS BECOME TO HEAVY

WHEN WE GO THROUGH DARK EXPERIENCES IN LIFE THERE IS STILL TREASURE TO BE FOUND. TREASURE THAT CANNOT BE FOUND IN THE LIGHT



BOOK TO READ: HIDDEN TREASURES BY SELWYN HUGHES

A Christian woman woke up one morning in the dead of winter with the words ringing in her mind,” Next summer’s apples are already on the tree.” How strange she thought as she looked out her window and saw nothing but snow and ice. Then she heard the spirit say,“ You may not see the apples yet but they are there never the less.

That story is very inspiring. Life’s medleys tend to make us forget that ,whatever is meant to happen tomorrow has already been written. We don’t have control over tomorrow .All we are in control of is, how we choose to act now .(not react).
 As humans .Whenever we hit rock bottom ,we automatically turn to God because, deep down we know he has been with us along our journey. He is there and always will be. If he actually turned his back on us, We would definitely know. 

Goethe said, ‘Difficulties prove men’.  We have to learn that we can do more with our problems than just go through them. In order for learning to occur. We have to either experience something or be taught something. 

When we feel alone and our burdens seem to be too heavy .To the point that we feel forsaken.Remember that even Christ felt that way in his darkest hour. Sometimes It has to hurt real good for it to be able to impact your life. 
If life was smooth sailing .We wouldn’t know the value of what we have nor would we be able to appreciate it.

When you find yourself in the darkness, look for the meaning that lies within it. Because when we go through dark experiences in life there is still treasure to be found, Treasure that cannot be found in the light.  
 Don’t allow yourself to give up on yourself. There is always a way out and just like next summer’s fruit is already being prepared away from the naked eye so is God’s plan, for your life. 
Don’t look at  the lives of others and imagine, how lovely it would be to walk in their shoes. Everyone is on a different journey and with a given purpose .The best way to live your life is to make sure you fulfill your destiny and maximize on all that you are given both the negative and the positive.
 .

Live, Learn, Love, Laugh and Never stop Dreaming.

IMPORTANCE OF BEING INVOLVED IN YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION

A PARENTS JOB IS TO HELP EASE A CHILD INTO LIFE . WE RAISE ADULTS!
SOURCES;




As a parents ,sometimes our daily schedules  prevent us from being fully engaged in our children’s lives. One important thing that we tend to forget is that, everything we do and what drives us .Is the need to provide a comfortable lifestyle that enables our children to thrive.
Sometimes we may think, as long as we give our kids what they need they will be okay, or since we pay for their education. We do not need to be involved because that is what we pay the school to do. 

Being involved ,doesn’t mean knowing every detail and tightening the belt when it comes to our kids. Being involved means that you know your kids strengths and weaknesses .Then using them as a guideline to help them succeed in life . We all know that being harsh doesn’t always work based on our own experiences . What works is when your child knows that they can confide in you and trust that you will be there for them when they need you.



Children whose parents are involved are more likely to have higher self-esteem, be disciplined, have more self-motivation and tend to achieve better grades, regardless of their ethnic, social or racial background

Research indicates that two thirds of teachers believe parental involvement in education results in better performance in school. As mentioned earlier, children tend to achieve better grades and tend to be more motivated when parents are involved. 

Parental involvement helps give children attention and praise which, in turn, helps them recognize their education is worthy of adult interest. As children tend to model adult behaviors, when parents are actively involved with their schooling, children will learn the importance of education and try to emulate those behaviors from their parents. It also helps children understand that their schooling isn't just about them.  It's a collaborative approach between pupils, teachers and their parents. This team approach can further motivate them to work hard and produce positive results. Children who have help from their parents are also more likely to feel competent, and school attendance becomes more important to them.

Being involved also boosts the mental health of children. It encourages communication between children and parents, which can foster higher self-esteem and confidence. It can also help children interact better with their peers and advance their social skills.

Parental involvement is known to be linked with improved behavior, regular attendance and positive attitudes.  In addition, being involved shows your child you care about his or her education and schooling. That in itself can make children appreciate the importance of education and help them to understand that what they are doing has a purpose.

Parental involvement provides a support network for children, which is particularly important when they face academic hurdles or other challenges with friendships or extra-curricular activities. It also means you know where your child's education journey is going and are able to be part of the highs and lows along the way Parental involvement creates ties and strengthens bonds with children and can boost your confidence in parenting and any decision-making when it comes to your child's education. 

As well as boosting motivation and providing discipline for children, By walking alongside their son or daughter's journey, parents are more likely to be sensitive to their child's emotional and social needs.

It also leads to the building of stronger relationships leading to clearer communication between teachers, parents and children. This can give you more confidence in the school's approach to education and learning. Schools that have high levels of engagement with parents tend to experience better community support and positive reputations. Also, when children see a unified approach to their education between their parents and the school, they are more likely to understand the importance of their studies.

As parents our actions always have a direct impact on our kids and it is important that it is  positive. After all we are not raising children . As parents we are raising the adults of the future.
