MAISY Kelly closed the book, One Last Chance, pressed it to her chest, and sighed. Jake Sinclair, the perfect man—why did he reside only in the pages of a book? It wasn’t fair.

FROM GOODREADS:

A romance bookstore owner finds her own happily ever after with a single dad in a new romance series from the New York Times bestselling author of Every Dog Has His Day.

Ryder Copeland is an accomplished architect and one heck of a father…not to mention tall and sexy. He’s everything a hero should be, and Lord knows, Maisy Kelly has read enough of her great-aunt Eloise’s romance novels to recognize one when she sees one. But like all fairy tales, Maisy can’t help but wonder if this Prince Charming is too…

FRIENDS………………………………………………………..

theutopiauniverse

When we think of friends what is the first thing that come’s into your mind ? Is it the person that you have known all your life,the person you met a few years ago,but has a special bond, the person that understands you better than anyone else or maybe the person who is always there for you no matter what…..

Friendship is something that is found between two people, it is not always something that has to be worked at, it is a magical thing that bond’s those people together, no matter what, through single days,between marriage,break ups,children, death’s and births, up and down everyday problems and at times some pretty serious obstacles that life just love’s popping in there. This could be an illness,financial disaster a total of the rails experience, and if that special person your friend is still there through all of what it may be, you…

18 Ways to Get Over a Breakup

RAFA FARIHAH

We’ve all been through bad breakups, and by the third time around, you think you’d be better at handling them. But the truth is, it’s just as hard each time. Either the spark disappears or you grow apart and want different things, or even worse, someone cheats. Whatever the case is, healing from breakups is hard and I have some tried and tested tips to help you cope.

Cry (a lot) and this will last a few days

Pent up emotions have a way of coming out in the most random places. To avoid a break down in the cereal aisle of the grocery store or in your office break room, let yourself cry if you need to. Once you let it all out, you’ll feel emotionally cleansed.

Buy a tub of ice cream and binge-watch Netflix

It’s completely okay to let yourself bum out and feel sad. Watch shows…

Why should I use DuckDuckGo instead of Google? Gabriel Weinberg, CEO & Founder at DuckDuckGo (2008-present)

juantetcts

#1 — Google tracks you. We don’t.

You share your most intimate secrets with your search engine without even thinking: medical, financial and personal issues, along with all the day to day things that make you, well, you. All of that personal information should be private, but on Google it’s not. On Google, your searches are tracked, mined, and packaged up into a data profile for advertisers to follow you around the Internet through those intrusive and annoying ever-present banner ads, using Google’s massive ad networks, embedded across millions of sites and apps.

In fact, it’s a myth that you need to track people to make money in web search. When you search ‘car’ we can show you a car ad without knowing anything about you. That’s how we make money and it doesn’t involve tracking because it is based on the keyword and not the person…

Endings and Beginnings

Aria-Bella Rises

Sept27.jpg

Let the endings end. Let the beginnings begin.

We get stuck so much on holding on tight to everyone and everything in our lives – that we either become stuck and stagnant or we end up pushing things away due to strangling the hell out of them with our grip.

Let’s let go, even if just for today. Lets let the things that are meant to drift away, do so.

And lets choose to see the doors opening up with wondrous excitement of what lays ahead. We are never meant to be stagnant.

To reach a plateau and just stay camped out there forever. We are meant to evolve, and make our way through the different experiences this lifetime has to offer.

So why hold on so tight? You are going against your natural flow, that is why it feels so hard. Yes it can be a little scary stepping…

Life sometimes is cruel

and hearts can suffer
May fate one day bless us
bringing our souls again closer
I don’t mind loneliness
if we can be alone together
Side by side, my hand in yours
sharing the afterlife forever!

YOU CAN DO IT.

The Angels and all the magicness of the universe truly believe that you can do anything you possibly put your mind too. So bravely step forward into unknown territory. Into feeling amazing every day. Into being boldly you.

You have the power and strength at your disposal – so use it!

Choose to no longer be afraid of what is coming – instead open your arms wide and embrace every experience of this human life. Soak it up like a parched plant.

“I bravely step forward in all areas of my life, knowing I am fully supported and I will rock it no matter what comes my way”

We are all behind you, cheering you on with pom poms a bouncing and whistles a blowing.

Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx

Here and Now (not a “feel good” show) and the scenes to Focus on in Episode 1 if you are adoptive parents.

Lifting Taboos

family-1466262_960_720

This new show  on HBO called Here and Now has received pretty bad reviews. As a Haitian, Black adoptee, I can give you my thoughts on why the reviews have been so bad. But that is not what I would like to focus on here. I want to focus on why it should actually be receiving raving reviews not just from the US, but from all around the world.

Adoption concepts, complexities, and a myriad of issues pervadesthis show like I have never seen before. It deals with VERY real issues adoptees face in general; and adoptees of color who are living in predominantly white homes will really be able to relate to how the adopted children in this show grapple, handle and deal with their pain, frustration, and very “loving” but ignorant white parents.

This is not a “feel good” show. After every episode, I found myself feeling very…
