Karma and the people who deserve her!

Some of us are so worried about karma or the universe paying us back that we allow people to beat us down to the ground and do nothing. We fail to realize, that sometimes, by defending ourselves, we could very well be the karma they're supposed to get. This doesn't mean you have to answer the phone every time a fight calls, but sometimes...

Sometimes it's okay to fight back. I'd advise you to pick your battles wisely, but do not become anyone's doormat. Fight back. Fight for your right to be seen and treated as human. Sometimes, I treat people exactly the way they treat me. You do know it's possible to fight fire with fire right? Like that is a legit thing. Firefighters will light a larger fire to keep the smaller fire contained within. Sometimes you just have to show your ass to get people to leave you alone. 

I don't advise starting a fight, but by God, sometimes you need to finish that motherfucker and do so in style. STOP allowing people to bully you. STOP allowing toxic people to make you feel like shit for defending yourself after months, and sometimes even years, of their abuse. I made a post about a month ago on this very thing. I am no longer in the business of erasing me to accommodate you. 



I will no longer allow people to say whatever they feel to me because they think I won't, for a lack of better words, clap back. I've had to put loads of people in their places this year alone. I won't bully people, but I will no longer be bullied either.  For me, I used to be so worried that the way I responded to being hurt would cause bad karma if I reacted in a way that some considered negatively. However, I'm over that now. In no way do I think the universe wants us to sit back and be taken advantage of. I do believe the universe wants us to take care of ourselves. Self-love is so very important. 

With that being said, sometimes doing unto others as you would have them do unto you only works when both people have mutual respect for one another. Other times, you have to put a mofo on their behinds.

  1. Your words resonate with and have touched me. I too have taken on the philosophy of treating people as unkindly as they've treated me.

    Though, as you stated, we must pick our fights carefully, I'm done being treated as though I do not matter and bullied as if I were not going to retaliate.

    I will no longer apologize for being a good man nor for happily embracing the new being I've transformed into. No more will I allow others belittle me without expecting from me the proper reaction.

    Thank you,once more,for being my muse.

Meredith Wild's Hacker Series & Bridge Series Giveaway!

Hello, my page turners and bookends! A few weeks ago, I entered a mega giveaway that Meredith Wild, New York Times Bestseller and author of  the wildly popular Hacker Series, was hosting. Out of over 14,000 who entered, I was one of the 300 chosen winners. Imagine how excited I was to get the email that lil' ole me  had been chosen as winner. Now imagine that excitement a hundred times over when I actually opened the door to see my postman delivering boxes of books! The Hacker Series  has a total of four books. I won ten of each. I also won ten copies of book one to her Bridge Series. So after I took my cut (LOL), I'm now left with nine books of each story from the Hacker Series and nine copies of book one from the Bridge Series. So because Meredith was generous to me, I'm going to return the favor. I won't ask you to jump through hurdles win these books either. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll randomly select winners. I'll also

Naughtier Than Nice: A Review

This is another stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon.   Next up, Naughtier Than Nice by Eric Jerome Dickey . I should note that this book is NOT on Kindle Unlimited. As a reader, I'm a fan of Kindle Unlimited. If you're a reader looking to test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to Naughtier Than Nice. Man, whew. I've waited so long for EJD to get back to this style of writing. Now don't get me wrong I love Gideon and  the chick from A Wanted Woman, but I longed for the day EJD would get back to the Cheaters and Liar's Game style of writing. Once I read One Night earlier this year, I knew I was going to get Naughtier Than Nice. First off, let me say it did my heart some good to get an

Coming soon: Tell Me No More

“He’s getting married!” “What?” “Jamie… he’s getting married,” I repeated frantically. There was a wild look of panic in my eyes, I was sure. My whole world seemed to be crashing down around me. Nothing prepared me for the news that the man I still loved was about to walk down the aisle and make another woman his wife. Kay had to catch me in her arms before my legs gave out on me. For four years I’d been trying to come to grips with the fact that I’d let a good man get away. Jamie and I had been together for almost two years before I’d cheated on him with my son’s father’s best friend. I’d met Jamie while I was head over heels in love with Aric. Even after finding out Aric was married, I held on to hope that he and I could be together. That was until his wife, Stephanie, tried to kill me and my son while I was pregnant with him. Even then, it took a while for me to see that Aric and I just weren’t meant to be together. I finally saw that Jamie was the man I
