More Than Just a Release

More Than Just a Release...

That moment when my dreams became my reality,
When I see my vision come to light and can say, "that's all me!"
Crying tears of joy, overwhelmed with excitement,
Because, finally I did it!
Some talk about all the things they want to do, but once I made up my mind I was determined to get it done,
And, I've completed every task I set out for and then some. 
Success doesn't happen over night and I didn't always see this moment, this day, or time,
But, I told myself to be patient, it'll work out, everything will come together just fine. 
So, I kept writing, kept blogging, kept posting on social media,
I needed others to see my passion, to see my perseverance, to keep believing in and supporting me. 
I even made some business cards, with no business, 
But, trust me it's coming...blogger, speaker, entrepreneur and authoress.
This is just the beginning. 
That moment I saw this cover, the reaction was so unreal, 
Like, I'm finally here, that's MY NAME on that book, this is definitely for real.
I vowed to continue to believe in myself even if no one else did, 
I wouldn't, couldn't dare give up because I was destined to win. 
This moment is everything I ever dreamed of, wished and prayed for, everything that was once just an idea is now a my masterpiece, 
So, for me this is my life, my heart, my sweat and tears put into it and this for me is more than just a book release. 

This poetry book was written to show people that heartbreak shouldn't define you. Just because you haven't been lucky in love doesn't mean your luck has ran out. There's still someone out there for you. It's okay to still believe in love. You can take all the broken pieces that failed relationships shattered into and put them back together to focus on the relationships that mean something to you like the one with your kids. Your friends. Your family. Your God and most importantly the one with Yourself. 
E-book available tomorrow on Amazon 3.20.18. 

Thank you for all your continuous love and support! You all are bomb! 

Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts."
- Winston Churchill
Until next time, 
Xoxoxo, 😘

Stepping Stones

"If you don't build your dreams, someone will hire you to build theirs." 

  • Unknown 

Stepping Stones...


I need a clear indicator...

That things will get greater.

Because, waking up on a daily,

For something I'm not in love with is becoming hard to tolerate. 

It's draining all of my energy,

Taking over me mentally,

And barely covering me financially. 

I'm no quitter, but I couldn't quit even if I wanted to, 

And that's what hurts the most, needing something that doesn't stimulate you. 

Or please you. 

Or make you happy.


It's the reality of many just like me,

Stuck where they don't want to be,

Just to have income to make ends meet. 

But, it's not their passion,

Not the life or career that they imagined,

And no matter how hard they work to escape, it takes forever for things to happen. 

When will it end? 

When will I smile again?

When will I enjoy work instead of work destroying who I am?

Physically taking me down. 

Lord, I just need a sign.

That I'm on the path You designed for me,

If I continue to be patient, You will reveal it just when I need it.

That I'm exactly where you planted me to be. 

For this very reason, 

To seek your advice and guidance,

So, that you'll give me the desires. 

Of my heart. 

I just want a new start. 

To do what I love and love what I do.

It isn't really work when you're putting your own skills to use.

For the money to be a bonus, because the work alone is satisfying.

The passion, the drive, 

Keeps me flying high. 

These are just stepping stones, 

To get me to the place where I really belong, 

Where my heart and mind will feel at home. 

When waking up and starting the work day will no longer be a dreadful thing to do,

Because I am confident that one day my dreams will come true, 

Trust the process Kiara. 

God, got you! 

"You will get there, but only if you keep going!"

I wrote this poem on last week. I realized how unhappy I am becoming working for someone else, when it was never my dream or passion. But, I realize now that it's just a stepping stone. Entrepreneurship doesn't happen over night and I need my full-time employment to help finance my self-employment until I get exactly where I should be.

I know so many people that has been where I am. That's has been at a job that's draining physically, mentally and emotionally; but, you keep going because bills keep going. 

Then, one day you decide that enough is enough, but you have to be patient, remember the end result and keep working towards it. 

A friend told me the other day, "You can't allow a job to steal your joy. You have to remember what you're working towards, because at the end of the day a job is just a job; not a lifetime of happiness. It's a stepping stone until you get to where you truly want to be in life." 

I agree. That job isn't worth it. So, I'm telling you today, it's a difference between having just a job and a career. Until you are fulfilled and you're creating the life you want, doing the work you enjoy, do not let it take away your smile or eat at your health. 

Once I decided that I was determined to get there, I started researching, enrolled into a informative 6 day course, revamped my social media, asked my mentor for advice and expertise, even put some money into my brand. Because, very soon I will be an author, I will be a freelance writer and blogger, and I will be self employed!

I'm turning the bitter from this short term situation, into better for my lifetime dream.

"The best way to treat obstacles is to use them as stepping stones. Laugh at them, tread on them, and let them lead you to something better."

Until next time,
