“Vulnerability sets you free
Ignoring this fact, sets you back”


I can say 
And can see
What works for me
Is when I’m free

If I am chained
To secret sorrow
The pain today
Affects tomorrow 

What from my past
Has taught to me
Is to embrace 

To be bound
And not address
Weight is gained
I can’t digest

To raise my head
And gulp the air
Speak my truth
To me is fair

In the moment
Words I say
There is release
No other way

I did inhale
And closed my eyes
Opened them
And realized 

Adds more depth
No matter how
You look at it

It’s ok 
If not accepted
For self to know
I’m not rejected

In this you see
And will find
Open hearts
Sooth the mind

To be bold
Is often straight
Said in haste
It might seem fake

Adding candour
Respect sincere
Being frank
Makes it clear

Strip away
Years of layers
Work from your raw
Not the naysayers 

Holding weight
Does get heavy
Shed the pounds
Your truth is ready

Strength Is real
And always steady
At your service
In vulnerability 


Beautiful People 🌷🙏

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
