What’s a Girl to do?!

Within the Black community I feel that fathers are constantly attacked and said to not be there for their family and children. I personally know some great men that take initiative to be in there children’s lives and even help father children that are not biologically related to them. We can speak about fathers constantly,…

Growth!

Well, I’m back and much better than I’ve been within the past few years. I’ve done much thinking and growing in somewhat of a short period of time. I feel happier, less anxious, more confident in myself and my ability to interact as well as communicate with others. There is still work to be done…

Rainbowish Blanket

I’ve avoided projects with numerous color changes! I dreaded sewing in the ends even though I love how they looked once completed. I have been crocheting for a while now. At the most I’ve done 3 changes of color for any given project. I didn’t have a specific pattern color wise. I just went with…

Pass the bottle please!

“It’s Friday and I’m ready to play, pick up my girls and hit the party scene tonight” LOL, but seriously Unwinding for me is long over due. I have some personal, relationship (non existent now), living situation, and mental s*** I’m enduring at the moment. I’m in desperate need of alcohol, ASAP to tranquilize the…

Random Thoughts…..

Happy Monday!!! Not really that happy, but I gotta make it work. Time is steadily passing by. I can no longer sit dwelling in my afflictions. I have to consistently consciously put fourth more effort than I have been. At the end of the day it’s on me and its only me. NO one cares…

Just a Different Perspective

I recently deactivated my Facebook. It’s not the first time and may not be the last. I initially did this due to various reasons. Mostly recently I deactivated it because I have no friends on there that are talking about anything I’m interested in. Instagram, however is different. I follow people and things that interest…

Morning Again

When I got up today it was a struggle. I mean it was going downhill so quickly that I’m not sure what I slipped on. I just was heading down. So, I did what I’ve done many times before. I put on some feel good music. I just discovered this artist last week…..she kept popping…

Awkward Co-Workers

I’ve managed to hold down a part time gig for 5 whole months! So, koodos to ‘myself’ for that. However, there have been mountains, hills, and tree stumps to jump over. There has been struggle and growth…spiritual growth that is. My view on the World  is changing day by day. When I started it wasn’t…

Auntie Status….?

I’ve definitely been super busy with life and other random events. It feels like I’ve been off wordpress forever. Anywho….I wanted to pop on here real quick this morning. I have a 2 year old nephew. My first and only nephew. He’s a real character as most 2 year olds are. However, I’m receiving pressure…

Teenage Reflections

As of late, reflect so much on what I was like 10 years ago. 10 years ago I was 18….and knew nothing about the World or how it all worked. Now, as I reflect I see how much I’ve grown. It’s not at the pace or speed I would necessarily like…but it’s my path. It’s…

Current Situation

Well, I made it through several weeks of work without having to call off. Yesterday was too overwhelming that I could not go in and be social and deal with people. I hope that does not look too bad, with it being my first month of work and all. This is why it was a…

Falling Into Place

When I take a step back…..reflecting on my life the last several years, I see things slowly falling into place. Maybe not as quickly or as perfectly as I desire. Patience also is not my strong suit right now. It has become apparent to me that the path I’m in is not necessarily one that…
