Drifting off Tonight

I just wanted to take a minute and say I am so glad I made the decision to begin a blog. As I reconstructed my design, not only did I grow tremendously proud of my dedication, but also, eagerly excited to read that from all of you. I can’t believe how much I’ve learned, simply by wishing to share valuable but unique content, and to better know fellow bloggers. This journey has been so adventurous thus far. I’m really looking forward to growing as a blogger and sharing “just another human” in this trip we call life!

Have a blessed night!

“Bee” No one but Yourself

Bees really are some cool little dude… And Queen. I didn’t realize how much they impact food production. I didn’t realize the value of honey, and the work required to make it. This morning, while enjoying my cup of coffee, I did alittle studying. Here’s a cute YouTube video about then, and some info graphs.

#9. Helpful Tips

I’m so thankful when I come across tips that make life more pleasurable by reducing anxiety =) This list below has started my Tuesday with such positivity and encouragement 🌸

ENJOY=)

We live in a quick-fix kind of world, complete with one-minute meals and instant ab workouts. It’s nearly impossible to find the time to sit down and contemplate permanent ways to be happier. We’re in luck, then, because there are lots of little tric…

One Day a Year

Every year, on THE day, we turn a year older. It’s a blessing, a gift, to open our eyes and see another day… Every day! As busy as we get, wrapped up in deadlines, meetings, obligations, and stuff… I hope you remember to stop your clock… And just be.. It’s my Birthday Wish🎂🍰!

This Picture

I had lost thirteen pounds in two weeks. I was rudely awakened by the general consensus regarding others and my need to talk (they didn’t hear me!). I was isolated from a support system, most friends, professional help, and usually the general public. My anxiety astronomically skyrocketed because there was too much unknown. Not only that but there was absolutely NO consistency! I had terrible stomach pains, didn’t sleep much, drank entirely too much coffee…. and made myself feel crazy while “waiting”. The one ray of hope I THOUGHT I had, …. turned out to be a wolf in sheeps clothing. This was the life I had chosen for myself, a life most would’ve abandoned way sooner.

I’m not in that particular “time” any longer, though the aftermath lingers. Being single feels super lonely. I just invested 14 months submitting to a dominant… Now, if you’re not familiar with this lifestyle, please Google it. Needless to say, the submission is completely voluntary because in return, her needs (both in and outside the bedroom) are met. That’s how it’s “suppose” to happen.

Being single means alone… Sleeping, out to eat, nights, weekends, Netflix and Chill, every minute. Sure it’s healthy to be content with being alone. It’s necessary for such time, as well. Trust me, I understand that. There were too many instances over this time when I felt I should’ve had my boyfriend and I didn’t. He wasn’t there to hold me when I didn’t feel good. He wasn’t there to give me a hug when life felt too overwhelming. He wasn’t there to talk and work out our confrontations. He just wasn’t present.

With all of that being said, this was and is the man who’s had the greatest place in my heart. I looked for hope with us. I looked for change, for improvement. I felt that if I saw growth, we were headed in the right direction.

What direction was that?… And this is the error in this whole mess… The direction towards future tense picture of us. He and I were always talking about what we can do now to get to where we want to be. Now, that sounds like what a serious couple should be doing right? That’s something most couples do, and it should be a good sign… But, here’s the problem… Our current life wasn’t how we wanted it, so our goals were rather short term… We were working on this together… Hell, I thought we were even good as to being on the same page! This picture of us was constantly front and center! It’s how we always did it.

The beginning of this year, all that I knew life to be for him and I stopped… Abruptly…

And I wasn’t ready.

#6… (harder to do) I need your Help

Keeping kids “schooled”

itunes.apple.com/us/story/id1396850379

Summer is all about fun time, ice cream and lots of water play… But, keeping kids’ minds stimulated helps transition them back into the routine for the next school year! My local libraries have a reading program called Summer Lit Club. There’s prizes that will be available for the participants who have read the most books! One morning, like 2 am, I  signed me and my girls up! (Haha probably shouldn’t do anything at 2 am… Bc it leads to momma doing stuff like this😂😂).Anyway, here’s a list of apps in the Apple store that will keep your kids on top with imagination, word vocabulary growth, and entertainment. The most AWESOME part: 😍😍😍😍IT’S ALL FREE😍😍😍😍

#1 Songs match my moods

When I can’t find the right words, music never fails. Two days ago, I was listening to Linkin Park. The song, Numb, played and I couldn’t believe how it spoke to me. I’d heard it so many times before; but, this was as if I’d heard it for the first time. Does that ever happen to you? Do you listen to the song but don’t actually understand it until it relates to your life? I’m happy that there will always be moments like this… Music therapy is essential food for my soul.

Numb: Linkin Park

“Live Your Dreams”- Reflection

 

 

Live your Dreams!

 

What dreams do I have? Have I ever really thought about this? No, I don’t think often, if much at all. Sure, I’ve made goals… but, are those dreams? They’ve been short-term. New Years resolutions is probably a more accurate description. The long-term goals, any of those? Not many of those until recently, as a matter of fact. Is this sad? I don’t know. So, I guess I don’t quite understand the feeling of “living my dream”.

I do know I hadn’t been raised with such a virtue. Often times, I thought about life after “The Merryman House”… and gasped at how utterly fucked-up and irresponsibility unprepared I was going to be. There were many concepts and nightmares I know I didn’t want to continue. I knew I had a great deal of fear of failure… so much so that I simply didn’t try. Disappointing my parents, myself, and trying to breathe through the aftermath wasn’t my cup of tea… and that aura feasted on that house.

So, what is it to “dream”, really? Is this the ideal life you’d want in a certain amount of time? Is it a career or position in a job you absolutely love? The perfect family? A big house with wrap-around porch, spiral staircase, country atmosphere, southern welcome, white picket fence aligned with gorgeous Hydrangea bushes, Daffodils, Azaleas, and moonlight blooms? Does one live rather than sit in hesitation, losing time, opportunities, and experiences?

When you live your dreams, no one can tell you you’re wrong or right because they’re yours. As early in life as possible, you are allowed to decide what your dreams are, how you wish and/or if you wish to fulfill them. In my beliefs, the biggest importance, though, is to remain respectful of others. Our dreams are as differently beautiful as we are from one another. Who are we to ever criticize and condemn what one wishes for his/her life. Will life turn out as according to plan? Will we all stumble and fall? Will we fail and hurt our confidence? We sure will… but, aren’t we all worth a third, fourth, twenty-second try? Won’t we all be in a similar position at some point in time, if not we have been already.

It’s never too early to begin dreaming, planning how you’d like your life to be. It’s never out of your reach, that life. You’re never unworthy of your heart’s desires. You’re also perfectly capable of achieving them. Along your journey, I hope to have encouraged you, to lift up another… because we simply can’t live without one another.

Effective Communication is an art in modern day society. We hear tons of “talk” ;but, what do we hear? Do we hear anything? I have always wanted to teach a class in communication so others learned what I have , thus bettering all of us. I feel this article to be incredibly insightful! It talks about the different Subareas and describes them in detail. To be a leader, we must first be students… to be a leader, we must know how to actively communicate 💕
