My Heart Breaks For This Generation

I have come to realize that there is no more innocence in the world.

I know some people will read that line and roll their eyes saying "Here we go again", but for the sake of this generation, we have to keep saying it.

The vulgarity, violence and sex that our children are exposed to has become simply ridiculous. Have you tried watching a movie with your kids recently? Even the so called ‘family movies’ still have some sort of hidden sexual connotations, and this generation of kids are smarter than we think so don’t sit there thinking “they don’t know what that means”.
Now, don’t even get me started with ‘Kids TV stations and music’ these days! They have lost their innocence, all of a sudden its acceptable to show kids shows making out?

I found an old episode of my diaries (Stella Damasus Diaries) on YouTube and I have decided to share it with you because I am hoping that it will inspire someone to start filtering what their kids are exposed to and take them back to a time were music, movies and TV shows for kids were more innocent.

THINGS I WILL NEVER DO AGAIN

Sometimes in life we experience two extremes of different situations.

We do things with good intentions but those deeds produce bad outcomes.
We want to succeed but it doesn't go our way.
We think we are older and wiser but we make silly choices.
We feel that we have learnt enough but life throws curve balls at us.
We believe we know the people around us but we end up ticking them off.

I AM NOT A HOUSEWIFE

I was looking through my YouTube channel at the beginning of  the week, just to see what changes I can make and how I can improve the content on my channel. Doing this once in a while really helps me know how far I have come and where I want to be. 



As I was scrolling through, I found one of my favorite episodes of STELLA DAMASUS DIARIES. This particular episode resonates with so many women especially wives who have similar stories.
There are a lot of women out there who are struggling with their decisions, identity, responsibilities and purpose.

Meet Simone Myrie (Author of Life of An Illegal Immigrant)


Simone (my Jamaican sister) as I like to call her, is a good friend and a woman I respect and hold in very high regard, not just because of her accomplishments but also because of all the humanitarian work she is doing.

She is the first BLACK IMMIGRANT to grace the cover of THE INDIE ARTISTS Magazine and is also about to receive a ton of awards in NEW YORK for all the amazing work that she does.

WHO IS THIS WOMAN?

If someone walks up to you and asks you, "what is the meaning of the word WOMAN?", what will your immediate answer be?
It is easy to define the word Banker, Aunty, Girlfriend, Husband, Cup, but how easy is it to define WOMAN?

People have tried to describe her, label her, understand her, put her in a box, handle her, fix her, measure her, define her and some have even tried to recreate her?
 

As simple as the word WOMAN is, everyone has a different definition.
