Being Enough

Whether you choose to be a light breeze or a tsunami, you are enough

Being Enough

Everyone should be told they’re more than enough

They should be told that they can be a storm if they want to

That they can be a downpour of greatness if they desire


That they can flood the streets and tear houses down

That they are capable of mass destruction


Everyone should be told they can do this with their words

Maybe then people would watch what they say

Maybe then people would speak up more


Knowing your words can impact someone or something so heavily

That would make everyone think twice


How they greet someone

How they express their love

How they talk about themselves

How they talk about others


But we don’t tell our kids how powerful they are

How their words can bring down buildings

How they’re capable of much more than the jobs their 9th grade teacher said they’d be good at


Tell them to stop thinking practically and realistically

Show them what it means to really think outside the box

To have crazy ideas and to try and achieve them

Not just dream about them


Teach them they are bigger than their names

Teach them they are storms


Teach them that they can be hurricanes

Teach them that love is homemade and

They deserve all the love in the world


Show them it’s easy to smile and

Happiness can last more than just a while


Show them they can achieve the things they didn’t think possible

That whatever they choose to do is enough


Whether they want to be a drizzle and a breeze

Or lightening and hail

They are enough

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
