Lust, Lessons, Love and Life
LUST The things I sometimes succumb to mentally and physically. Is it fantasy or the freedom from commitment I truly seek. Sometimes, the feelings confuse me because its similar to love, only temporary attachment. The false connection clouds my ability to withdraw from participating even though I’m aware that its momentary fulfillment. There are often times when my weaker self…wins.
LIFE Chose to live daily instead of once as the cliché’ proclaims. Merely existing allows others and situations to decide if you win or lose, the privilege to be happy or sad and it relinquishes your power to follow those you designated through indecisiveness instead of leading the life you were meant to control. Live it or it is lived for you. Either way you are a participant.
LOVE That feeling of its meant to be and I’m going to accept you being free, with me. The willingness to embrace flaws, disagree, to make up and inhale while your significant only exhales for you. Eyes filled with awe and anger. Kissing honest but sometimes lying lips. Feeling pleasure and pain. It’s better to have loved and not lost.
LESSONS Moments that humble, help or hinder you. To be better because you know better. The best administrator of choices and consequences. Growth and wisdom determines pass or fail. Class is always in session. The student never becomes the teacher.
About STONE (Columbia County, Georgia Author)
Augusta, Georgia, native Angela STONE Marshall, positive words powerhouse, puts personal life experiences of struggle, strength and success to work for captive audiences and readers abroad. She speaks and writes with positive purpose and passion to motivate others while encouraging them through challenging times. Life has taken her on a journey which took three major turns; Reality, Rags and Riches, each leading to a road of exploration and discovery; each crafting her into the person who would become skillful at using life’s compass in navigating new directions and living vicariously through herself.
In March 2016, Angela resigned from twenty years in the corporate world to embrace the purpose that has pursued her throughout life - to be unmasked, unchained and untamed. Having struggled through a lavish but sorely lacking lifestyle as a former NFL wife, that chapter in her life proved pivotal to her "wise words woman" nickname. It also produced the transparency in her inspiring, inquiring minds want to know, auto-biography, 'Reality to Rags to Riches; The Story and Life of an Ex-NFL Wife."
Her first book, "Lust, Lessons, Love and Life" was published in November, 2016. It chronicles her choices, the consequences and her personal growth. Angela has chosen the platform, Reality to Rags to Riches (The Story and Life of an Ex-NFL Wife) to speak and write about the scores that didn't count, converting downs in life to wins and making positive plays every day.
