The Gamble

Know that it is possible to see both present and future

Acknowledge your perception and feel what is meant to be

The present is here for a moment it will hurt you but that’s what it takes 

Leave it behind and never look back move forward despite what’s at stake

Cancerous Coffee, OMG Orlando and Child Benefits?

It’s been a full week of my new schedule which includes some major stories that have happened over the past week. Among highlights was in the video below:

As an update, I received details about the recent increase on the Canada Child Benefit effective as of July 2016.

What is the Canada Child Benefit?

The Canada Child Benefit (CCB) is a monthly tax-free payment for families with children under the age of 18.  It will replace the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB), National Child Benefit Supplement (NCBS), and the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) that families currently receive.

Who can receive CCB?

Families with children under 18 are generally eligible to receive the CCB.

How much CCB will I get?

There are two main factors that determine how much you will receive:

  • the number of children in your care; and
  • your family net income

You can get up to:

  • $6,400 per year ($533 per month) for each child under the age of 6
  • $5,400 per year ($450 per month) for each child aged 6 to 17
  • an additional $2,730 per year if your child qualifies for the disability amount

Families with less than $30,000 in family net income will receive the maximum benefit.

As adjusted family net income increases, the benefit is reduced until it reaches zero.

To find out details go to the  Canada Revenue Agency for your benefits calculator.

I will be resuming the Non-Morning People News on YouTube Live from Monday to Friday at 10am EST along with some great new videos.

If you have a story you want me to discuss let me know!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Wheels are in motion…

After much reflection of the past 2015, I cannot ignore the fact that I have met the most talented and the most down to earth people in the world, thus far.  My curiosity with the internet and the entertainment world has not only turned into a passion but has turned into a mission.  During my time on the internet I have had the honour of meeting producers, writers, artists and promoters.  I must say, being a woman in the world of entertainment is not an easy journey, but along the way, I have earned the respect of many who also believe in my goal.

Independent artists, in any capacity, have the extra challenge of getting heard or being seen without a lot of help and it has always been my mission to assist these artists.  The internet has so many avenues to explore and it can be a daunting and frustrating time.  In my previous interviews, the artists have always said the same thing, “Time has changed, most companies only look at my followers, not my talent…”  I can’t tell you how taken aback I was when I realized the same thought was shared with so many talented people.  YES, the social media game is fierce, but when the artists are left discouraged because of their followings, it makes it clear why people do outlandish things for internet attention.  Producing good work has somehow fallen to the wayside with a focus on the quick seller.  My hope is that time will change, yet again, so talent is the focus and priority.

In this new year, my major projects will be to hold a large event for indie artists only and more radio entertainment.  I will continue to share and entertain with my shenanigans through my Live video streaming, videos and all my social medias.  I can’t express how happy and fulfilled I am having found my niche in the world.  I am both grateful and oh so pumped for the upcoming projects and I can’t wait to share this portion of my journey with all my amazing supporters.

Thank you all so much for being my homies! (yes I am “homie” years old, lol)

Much love to all my Sweets, I’ll keep y’all posted! 😉

A Quiet Plea

You are worth more than I diamond ring
You are my blessing as well as my sin
Please protect my heart and my mind
These are the rarest of all tender finds
When things are foggy and simply unclear
Please be my light and shoo all my fears
The happiness I see when I look in your eyes
I see that it’s you… You are my prize

A Captured Mind

It happens so fast
You cannot help who you love
It may have been one
Or all those above

Something so strong
It could tear out your heart
It cuts through you like butter
And you fall apart

Beyond the strings
Of distance and time
You’re drawn like a magnet
They’ve captured your mind

You wear your armour
Made of your smiles
The attraction you feel
Is more than just “mild”

You long to hold them
And be by their side
They’re just out of your reach
So your emotions you hide

Slumber

I’ll retreat into my slumber
While thoughts run through my mind
Some things I’m bound to forget
Some things I’ll leave behind

The darkness destroys all light
As the quiet loudly grows
My eyes and ears deceive me
Making life a glorious show

Looking forward may be a mystery
Causing me to stop and wonder
Many things still go unanswered
So I’ll retreat into my slumber

The Test

When you are away and
I feel all alone

I carry you with me
Where ever I go

I’ll wait for you
Through all sleepless nights

The sadness hidden
and emptiness I fight

You’re out of my hands and
Far from my grasp

I cling to the moments
We shared in our past

Until we unite and
We finally embrace

I’ll keep living life
With a smile on my face

There is no guarantee and
My trust issue is tested

I think of your promise
My heart is invested

I don’t have to wonder
What my future will be

I just drift off to dream and
It’s you who I see
