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…

This Week Will Be Amazing!

I’m heading into the new week with a positive mind frame and goals set for myself. Last week did not turn out exactly how I’d have wanted! My pessimistic perspective in unfavorable situations does not help me to feel good. Since I know this to be true, I have to put fourth more of an…

Work, Work, Work, Work, Work…..

  Today begins my second week of work. I left the two jobs I had over a year ago. I made the decision because I knew I just couldn’t do it anymore. I knew I needed to put my life in order. In addition to that I had a legal situation going on. Nonetheless, I’m…

Searching for BalanceĀ 

We all have opinions of what a strong woman looks like. I don’t mean strong as in trying to be masculinely strong, but strong in a feminine way. I, in no way shape or form want to be strong in the same way as man if you know what I mean. I do however want…

Adventures in Cooking

This past Friday I made an attempt to prepare a whole turkey. To my surprise it turned out bomb! I mean….of course I had to get a few tips from my granny, which is why it turned out great. Lol! Now, I’ll know how to get it just right on my own possibly. This was…

Sometimes We Need A Guide

As the first day of January 2017 comes to a close, I feel much better than I did earlier today. I feel confident in ending the day on a positive note, though I’d prefer to have a pleasant day over all. I realize this just isn’t possible for me some days. I sometimes have catastrophic…

Youthful Memories

  As teenagers the possibilities in life seem endless. Nothing can stop you, nothing can get in your way. I was raised somewhat sheltered than most of my peers. I wasn’t allowed to go around corners to play with other kids, no matter how much I begged, b****ed, and moaned. It wasn’t happening! In retrospect,…

Mediation Struggles

For the past several days I have attempted meditating as well as saying positive affirmations. I have tried mediating in the past, only to fall asleep. I’m like ok….maybe I shouldn’t lay down if I am mediating. So, the last several days I have been sitting up in a crossed leg position. The whole entire…

December Already….

It’s December already! We’ve almost made it through another full year. When I observe my life from this December to last December…….well there are situations I would have approached in a more mature way. Time has a way of teaching us to learn from our inaccurate choices and decisions. On occasion, it is a difficult…
