“My support system is simple – people and time. The miracle of other people in your life.”
– Kiki Smith
We all need support at times. Even if we cannot be there physically to offer support we can still give encouraging words, thoughts, prayers, just let that person know you are with them in their time of need or to support them in their efforts as they strive for their goals and reach for their dreams. Technology has made it possible to communicate in many forms.
Sincere support is solid support and it can go a long way into making someone’s day.
Stay inspired and keep rising.
Isn’t it an amazing feeling to know you have people in your life that have your back? They stand with you through thick and thin and are not afraid to show you some tough love when needed.
It could be a family member or members, friends, co-workers or just that special someone in your life who delivers a daily dose of feel good to let you know they are there for you. Let’s face it, we are living in some very harsh times. We have all experienced our fair share of days when it feels like the life has been sucked out of you, or stress and pressure are relentlessly squeezing you mentally and spiritually. Health issues reminding you of your mortality. We have all been there.
On these occasion, hasn’t there been someone who has either said or did something that has given us the lift we needed to stay hopeful (no matter how feint). That unconditional support that spoke volumes in saying “I’m going to help you get through this and you will get through this.” No one is an island unless they choose to float alone.
Isn’t it wonderful to know that someone has got your back?
Stay inspired and keep rising.

I thought You could use a hug
Right here in this very moment
Outside of space and time
Take a deep breath and release
Locked this firmly in your heart
I will always be here
And wherever I must be
Embracing You fully

It will get cloudy
It will get dark
But never to cloudy or dark for me
To hold up a light and have it shine as bright as can be
In your direction
Never turning my back, only having your back
Life can be good and we know it can take one of those hard turns
Be assured that my head will never be up my ass thinking everything is rosey
Always, for you

For every scrape or cut
Seen and unseen
For every nick and scratch
Seen and unseen
For every pain that tears at your heart
And stretches your soul
You only need to open my heart and find what you need

Did you notice?
Did you know?
It’s all good though
Most people don’t
The ones that really matter do
They don’t even need clues
God put them there for a reason
They are not fair weather or seasonal
They are simply present, always
As is God, always

Women you were encouraged to stand up
Men take a seat
Show some respect because respect is due
You know women are too, human beings
Do not degrade them
Devalue their essence
Treat them as a dish to be served
But reverence their presence
Women stay inspired
Keep striving for equality
Keep your voices raised
Despite the degree of difficulty
#MeToo, #Time’sUp, #PressForProgress
All empowering hashtags
Don’t allow these to become flashbacks, throwbacks
Or just things of the past
Just one day a year
We have got to do better than that
You should be respected and appreciated daily
A solid truth and a solid fact

Every time I found myself going through an underpass, total darkness
Whenever the moment placed a sudden heaviness upon my soul
I always knew it was only temporary and light was just around the bend
She didn’t realize just how much her presence was daylight to me, pure daylight
