Share the Power

“Women, we are known to hold it down in all facets of life. But if you really want to know a man’s strength, share the power and allow him to Lead all the time. This is not regarding your input, this is showing your character. And if for some reason he falls short, lift him back up without batting an eyelash. Tick-Tock, time is not always there for you to make warm memories.” -Vanessa #MsTeardropsSpeaks #mochacitycafeandbooks #mochalattesipsnreadsbooksnscripts #unapologeticallyMe!

Making Memories

“In your journey, in this thing called life…may start out as a dirt road with rocks and gravel, but when you look back over those chapters, all you see is a paved road. Some spots polished and others with visible gravel. That may mean you had company of different shades and character that helped you out along the way.” -Vanessa That’s All… Ms. Teardrops Speaks! 🦋💜 #MsTeardropsSpeaks #mochacitycafeandbooks #mochalattesipsnreadsbooksnscripts #unapologeticallyMe

Your journey will create the story!

“What are the unintended consequences if you asked to get out of a relationship you wanted to stay in? Do things have to dismantle in order to rebuild with a better foundation? Trust your instincts in love and the journey will create the story for you!” -Vanessa That’s All… Ms. Teardrops Speaks! 🦋💜 #MsTeardropsSpeaks #mochacitycafeandbooks #mochalattesipsnreadsbooksnscripts #unapologeticallyMe!


“Ladies, when a man is polite to you in a way that you’re not used to, such as, opening the door for you, praying over your food, or make sure you make it home safe, does that offend you or make you blush? It’s okay sometimes to surrender your vulnerability and be soft and know that you are a queen and should be treated as such. Now this may not work for everyone, but the option should always be available to you!” -Vanessa That’s All… Ms. Teardrops Speaks! 🦋💜 #MsTeardropsSpeaks #mochalattesipsnreadsbooksnscripts #unapologeticallyMe! #mochacitycafeandbooks

A Moment of Insanity!

“I’ve been thinking about planting veggies in my backyard, but I stopped thinking when I come to realize that I will also have to keep it up. I’m not there yet in the confidence in being accountable also for my hobbies. So much for that thought bubble. Now that was a Martha Stewart quick moment.” Carry On! -Vanessa That’s All… Ms. Teardrops Speaks! 🦋💜

How Is Gravity Pulling You

Wait What Wednesday “If you find yourself so high up that you become detached from reality, is gravity your only go to? If so, try coming back down on your own. This way, the journey could be so personally gratifying and that you get to teach as you descend, and re-learn the experience as you are ascending back up in a better way. Go on, and Jeff Bezos your experience above the clouds and back.” -Vanessa That’s All… Ms. Teardrops Speaks! 🦋💜

Tough Thoughts!

“Will you ever forgive the letting go? If so, can you also understand the WHY? There’s always the lingering WHY in every break up. Are you pausing to think about this right now? If so, is the pause a time to reflect and listen or deflect and avoid… Either way, do it with purpose. Just a little thought 💭 bubble I wanted to share.” -Vanessa That’s All… Ms. Teardrops Speaks! 🦋💜 #MsTeardropsSpeaks




It’s Just Faith!

“I had a conversation about Faith with a friend, and my ask is, at what point do you realize that that’s the bottom line? HE gives us the Tools, the Knowledge, and the Understanding of what we need to make that judgment. So, at some point people, it’s up to us to stop talking and asking others to decode it, and just step out on faith, something that’s so often unused and underestimated. So no need to Faith Evans this, it’s just Faith.” – Vanessa #msteardropsspeaks

It’s All In The HOOK To The UP!

“It’s tough when you’ve chosen someone that will never choose you. Well let me say it this way, they may never choose you the way you should be chosen or want to be chose. In some people’s minds, it’s all about the Hook Up! In others, it’s about settling down with the want to start that forever relationship. All you have to do is pick your side and the rest should be crystal clear. Go on and make it a WHO’s ZOOMIN WHO, Aretha Franklin Style Likes.” – Vanessa
