What if I told you that today, I spent the bulk of the afternoon crying in my car in a park? Like boo hoo. Snot running. Struggling to breathe bawling.
Initially I didn't want to read this book.
Not because it's not one of thee most magical books I've ever read.
Not because it was 525 pages.
Not because of its name.
None of us saw it coming.
I'd just driven half way across the country to start my new journey in Texas.
Happy as hell to be working 2 jobs.
On the brink of my 30th birthday.
Finally adjusting to the hustle and bustle of Austin tolls and traffic.
Enjoying all the soldier eye candy at Walmart.
Happy New Year to me! 30 is supposedly that pivotal age where you’re supposed to have it all figured out. I always thought that I’d be approaching 30 as a young woman thriving in the career of her dreams. With the love of my life. In a loving home. With a few rugrats running around said home. Man. Let me […]
It’s happening again. You texted him. You looked at the text thread. Bubbles. He’s responding. Or so you thought. And now, here it is five hours later. Still no response. Your mind’s wandering. What happened? You go back to reread the last message sent. Was it something you said? Grammatical error? Too long? Corny? What was it? Why hasn’t he […]
“You know I’m working on my self-care” “I took today off for a self-care day” “I haven’t had a self-care day in a minute” Self-care is the new trending buzzword and for once we have something that is actually beneficial. As with anything that becomes “popular” via social media, many folks are oblivious to what it entails or how to […]
Y’all. 2019 whooped my ass. Like I’m legit still trying to figure out why it was so rough for me. And then I realize that I have to hold myself accountable for a majority of the things that happened. Unfortunately I’m THAT friend that’s hard headed. When I’m told that fire burns, my response is “oh yeah, lemme see for myself.” I put my hand on the stove despite the warnings, get burned and simply run cool water over the newly forming blister. I took hella losses. Everything from finances to business opportunities to my physical, mental and spiritual health. These losses were all used to teach me lessons that I’ve been needing to grow. Growth (n): a stage in the process of growing the process of growing progressive development expansion BUT. Instead of listing all of the hard headed ass lessons I learned, I’ve decided to simply sum up my biggest take aways from 2019. Moderation is Key Thats with everything. Eating. Drinking wine. Working out. Anything done in excess took away from the goal that I was trying to accomplish. I’ve spent the bulk of the year hyper fixating on crafting that I’d forget to eat. There was a period when I was obsessed with notebooks and spent quite a bit of my finances ordering them online. There were periods where I would obsess about how much I was spending on gas and food. The key was remembering […]
