The One Way to a Healthy Lifestyle

African American Art
“DO I Have Too?”

 

 

Doing what you don’t want to do is usually the best thing that you should do..

This is how life goes.

All the pleasurable things cause tummy aches, unnecessary loses, lies, betrayal and hardships…

I have been talking about simplification for weeks now,

and I guess this will be the theme for the duration.

It is so important that you discipline yourself.

Discipline is such a cuss word these days,

for we see how living in excess seems to be more rewarding than withholding.

But the future will come for all of us.

And what we do today will make the futures days gentle and relaxed or chaotic and regretful…

 

So to be healthy in mind, body and soul… Eat your veggies…..

To Know You Is To Control you!

“I Wanna Know You” Written by Salkis Re 

I want to know

if YOU MEAN what you say,

if YOU ACT like you say,

if YOU DO what you say…

This is the goal of anyone who wants to get to know you.

And they will find out, just as YOU WILL for them,

that they don’t entirely mean what they say or do what they say.

We call it being cordial or having manners, or establishing rapport.

The goal in any courtship, in any “I want to get to know you”

session is to simply to establish that you are EQUALLY YOKED

The, (I’m just like you, and that’s why you should like me) thing.

It’s all a feast of selling yourself until one of you is no longer

afraid of how you are perceived by the other.

When he is no longer afraid of LOSING you, then he

will start to show you who he really is…

Single Mothers Be AWARE!

you cannot afford to believe in any fairytales, or allow your positive thinking to make decision on your behalf when the majority of men you reveal your “situation” to will have pseudo psycho analyzed you as a woman with little to NO OPTIONS…

Dating Outside Your Race Black Women?

I could join you picket line…but I won’t because part of the blame, well most of it was my doing,
for I chose to give men who I knew were not interest in me a chance.
I knew that the guys I LIKED didn’t really like me,
but I hadn’t any concrete “evidence” to substantiate my suspicions, yet and still, the situations
that by the grace of God revealed the truth, I dismissed the truth anyway.
I didn’t want to admit the truth because that would mean that in my mind,
I was acknowledging that I wasn’t good enough.

And what’s the best way to relieve the mind of anxiety and depression: distraction!
Men pretended with me and I pretended right along with them, hoping that “proving value” by “selling myself” to an
*unmotivated buyer to begin with would somehow turn things around for me…
This what you do too.
You pretend.
You pretend you don’t see what you see.
You even pretend to be confused, but you know.
You ALWAYS know, the problem is that you do not trust in what you know because you
cannot differentiate your true self from the pretense you’ve created to get along with others.
 
Most of the time it was just a “feeling” though. In the mist of a conversation,
his mind does not seem fully engaged, and if a woman walked by that he liked,
he took the liberty to take a long and quite substantial look,
not feeling instinctively compelled to respectfully conceal his arousal from you.
 
There were other times when dates would be cancelled at the last minute
but then he’d show up at midnight to my door claiming to “miss me”,
I knew that he lied but I let him in because I wanted to feel wanted: truth be damned!
Then there were those times when holidays came around and gifts didn’t come neither the presence of his body,
probably because he was too busy stocking stuffing at “homes” of women who’s company he valued more.
And it was no buggy in my mind because
I bought my daughter all the gifts on her list which allowed me to a distraction from my feelings of inadequacy from being unwanted…

So now here you are, running from your acute ability to make poor decisions
by seeking refuge in the arms of men who do not share your genetic makeup.
You are fascinated with the “novelty” of it all. You get to even be “blacker” with him than you are
with your own brothers as you show and tell stories about what means to be a black woman in America.
And all well until you notice that he likes you a bit too much,
almost like you are trinket or an object of a fetish he has for black fresh.
And here you were thinking he is crazy about you…
Yeah he is krazy* about you…
You dismiss it though, still on somewhat of a high that a
man from another race considers you as beautiful.
 
But the truth is that you are that same woman who made agreements with men whom,
you knew were not to be trusted, not to be fucced, not to be husband or a father to your children.
Moving to another race doesn’t remove how your process and filter out your world and more importantly what you think of yourself.
You cannot run from you.
The respect and love that you desire comes when you become intimate with YOU.
It will come from black men when you have a love for your wellbeing that cannot be bought or bargained with.

“Realistic Thinking or Positive Thinking”

Written by Salkis Re

It’s more beneficial to think realistically than it is to think positively.

But to think realistically can offer up as much delusions as bright-side thinking too.
Positive thinking feels good, but it does not contain a *sense of urgency and the FIRE of discomfort that is the 👉blood supply of transformation.

And realistic thinking at times makes it difficult for you to perceive the potential you posses to be more than what you are at this moment.

I see so many of you who are professional complainers, you cry yourselves down obsessing over the “flaws” of their bodies.

“Just Like Me” Original Art by Salkis Re for iLoveherArt.com

And those flaws might very well be “real”, but the potential to be better through diet and exercise,

going out and touching your feet to earth, prayer or mediation all are tactics to improve but are negated to wallow in pity.

All practical things to change your reality are thwarted and exchanged for excuses which give you a painless “OUT”.

This is really what positive thinking amounts to for many women: a stall!

Do diligence is needed here.
Do not think that things are worse than what they are(realistic) and do not think things are just fine(positive)
Accept what you SEE as real and then start the active task of self improving.

In others words: just be honest with yourself and stop making up delusions of grandeur or defeat!!

“Woman to Woman” Written by Salkis Re

Dorothy and the Wicked Witch
“The Maiden and The Crone”

Older women are seen as the bitter, jealous,expired enemies of younger women. This is done deliberately to keep us out of the “catacombs” where we can,exchange secrets and confer “degrees” amongst each other. There isn’t a “new” that you’ll experience heartbreak so nothing that any woman knows could ever be “antiquated”….

The narrative of competition is heavily perpetuated within our society, and as a result younger women throw away and totally disregard the wisdom right within their reach. Older women were young once and if you are young now, old age is walking by your side too.

The appropriate way to view your world as a woman is with insatiable curiosity and respect for knowledge wherever it may reside. You are no better than any other woman, not really. You have the same fears and desires as all of us no matter what your station in life may be at this moment.

Talk to you mothers, your grandmothers, women you meet bump into in the fitting room or while standing at the check out isle.
Every woman you meet can potentially solve a problem you are facing, any woman you talk to could change your life in a few words..
Your “sisters” are everywhere…

God’s Child

“God’s Child”
Written by Salkis Re

Perfection is something none of us possess but we all criticize others for not being…

And the more critical you are of others,

the more it exposes of the secret hell you live in as you surround yourself with persistent, private condemnation.

When you release your desires for perfectionism, you can AND will enjoy your life a whole lot more…

Colorism in the Black Community
“Blacky” Art by Salkis Re

You will give yourself permission to make mistakes, to take chances, to explore the unknown.
You will become intriguing and exciting to be around.

You will give every inhale and exhale of your lungs a purpose outside of causing others pain…

And then your soul will begin to create your mission, a reason for living,

and a good reason for living is what your life will become when you inspire others,

when you uplift the weak, when you encourage the fearful instead

of the being the one fueling discouragement in others…..

This is what God’s children do…
Who’s child are you?

You’ve Got to Be Evil!

 

Pencil Portait
House of Black and White Collection: “I Wonder Why” Original Art by Salkis Re

I want to hammer that point home today.
Why?
Because you and many MANY others are under some impression that in this life,

all you have to do is be good and your actions will be reciprocated by the other you are being selfless with.
Nothing can be further form he truth.

The truth is that BAD people often win in this world, and that reality for freakin unfair
YET it is entirely true.
_Open your eyes._.

Look who is winning in your circle, in the world.

Is it the bruised knuckle man **working 3 jobs** to keep up payments on his trailer home?
Is it the virtuous housewife who is in love with a husband,

**the only man she’s ever slept with** whom she hardly sees because he’s at his other
woman’s house to get a peaceful sleep and a break
from the constant racket of his screaming kids?

How many women you know who sacrifice their entire

Pencil Portrait Painting

lives and sadly get people who feel the need to muster up a
“thank you” for her selflessness and sacrifice?

You know people like this everywhere.
You may be one of them yourself!

To be GOOD is something you do to feel self esteem, to feel good about yourself. I get it. I AM it.
But there is another side that is necessary to bring forth when you want

to accomplish things, and unfortunately VIRTUE DOES NOT GET THE JOB DONE.

Virtue will have you excusing mistreatment.
Virtue will have you passing up opportunities to
further yourself because it may cause inconvenience for another person.
Selflessness will have you depleted and and drained and badly in need of self replenishment and self care.

Bad people give themselves what they need, no matter who gets hurt or disrupted in the process.
And the BiGGEST of all secrets is that you will have to adopt selfishness to accomplish your goals.

 

There is no way to climb the ladder of success without a few bruises, self inflicted and administers to others.

I don’t care what they say.

Now you can opt for virtue and sleep in your car, or bum food off your family and friends because you are anti “the System” or anti government.

You could certainly say you’ve had it with the world system and move to a hut in some remote island and live off potatoes and water while laying in the sun all day.

 

BUT YOU ARE IN THE SYSTEM!!!

GET OVER IT!

You have a cell phone?

Great. You are a customer of enterprise, of slave labor and unfair pay.

You like designer clothes?

PERFECT you are participant in an economy that creates caste systems and greed , low class and high class, welcome home!

You like movies? Then you support and industry that perpetuates unbalance and propaganda to control the masses.

NOW, you’ve got to make a decision here in what part you want to play in it and how much control you want to have over your own life.

I know, I know, listen you are probably not as religious as I am or as I have been.

I have been radical about sin in my past and I still hold some virtues in pocket to keep me from going over the edge.

But what I am talking about is simply this: There is good, and there is bad within you.

There is hate and there is love within you.

If you think you are going to make it through life without displaying and actively

participation in ALL the emotions between love and hate, good and bad YOU ARE FOOLING YOURSELF!

Not if you want to be excellent!

Excellence take pain my darling, pain in the form of sacrifice and discipline

Are You A CHEAP Date?

 

 

Beautiful Black Women
Artist/Life Coach/Medicine Woman”~Salkis Re

 

I had a session with a client yesterday and she was explaining
to me how the conversation went on her pseudo date for the evening.

She told me that it basically tuned into a **therapy session**
for him to complain about all the money he was expected to spend in **his previous relationship**
and how he felt it was unfair that he was required to
give her so much of his money among other things…

Uh……

SO let me tell all of you ladies something that I did want to accept for a long time.
**YOUR APPEARANCE MATTERS!!**

 

Why do I say this?

Because she saw him for a “quick” informal date,

she wore a new pair of jeans(but they were jeans) and a cute casual looking blouse= **Minimal Effort**

 

Now she assured me that she looked very **VERY cute.**
But the message she sent to him was that of *convenience and *less requirements because she

was ok with riding around with him in his car with no plan and no money spent for her time.

And to top it off, he is all of 60 years old man with 4 baby mama’s

to divvy out child support too.
A 60 year old man has to pay to TALK far yes pay for an actual date.

Sound sluttish?
==========

**Get over it!**
Why?
Because HE assumed from the gate that this sister
WASN’T WORTH doing as much for like the previous woman was,
cause what? HE SAID HE GAVE THE OTHER WOMAN THE MONEY SHE ASKED FOR…..
SO his complaints are really a mute point AFTER the fact…

“Never Again” Art by Salkis Re

Do not ever take that take as some sort of compliment to your **”good girl”** archetype.
Being GOOD serves a purpose, and if that purpose isn’t being met,
then you should walk alone with the virtue you are so proud of.

Bottom line is that he didn’t think my client was on
the level of the previous woman he was complaining about.

You think if he thought she was ‘high maintenance’
AND deserved to be take care of, that he’d suffer her
through the entire date complaining about how much
money he didn’t want to spend on a mother woman????

NOOOOOOOOOOO!

Men know who they will low ball from the gate.

And they will spend on what they think is worth the effort and the price.

You being a Good Woman, a woman of fairness and honesty is beneficial only if the man has no alter agenda, and what man doesn’t???

A relationship with you becomes something of quality based on how YOU respond to offers and insinuations and sexual advances etc..

You make it ‘something more” than a one night bang” by not banging?

His morals are based on what you require.. PERIOD!!

Do not compromise on your requirements at all! You won’t get a no crown for suffering or not getting your basic needs met!!

Why You Want to Please People So Damn Badly!

Why is it so hard for you to consider how you feel FIRST??
I will tell you why.

Because a long time ago, when you were just a little girl, someone you loved and depended on told you it was wrong not to want to share.

These people were giants to you and you looked up to them literally and figuratively. They told you that you have to listen to what you are told regardless of what your desires were. They told you that it was wrong and disrespectful to be or show anger.

So you learned to hide your emotions.

You learned that for people to love you, you could not disagree with them in anyway lest you become a disappointment to them and yourself.

And so, here we are today…
And the same reasonings, the same thinking process you had as a little still prevails.

So what is the truth here?

The truth is that this all proves how “conditional” love actually is.
It also proves that what you thought you had to be was never the TRUTH, for it was merely
