Waiting to Be Told

Our time together wasn’t ideal And I know most people in my shoes Will not feel the way that I do Above all the pain Above the confusion I still love you. And I don’t mean the warm Fuzzy feelings that go away When the seasons change. When I say love, I mean that even…

Congratulations!

Congratulations! How far along are you? Is it a boy or a girl? Wait, are you pregnant!? I’m not a tiny woman by any stretch of the imagination. I am well over 150lbs, and I am not ashamed of my body. More than weight, I care about my health. I put nutritious food in my…

I’m over it.

I don’t want people to think that I’m all lollipops and rainbows. I do not always look on the bright side, and I’m not always sweet. Do I strive to be positive and optimistic everyday? Yes, I do! But I am not perfect. I have my good days and I have my bad days. I’ve…

I HAVE Changed…

I’ve started this blog over and over because I felt like I wasn’t using the right words. This is attempt number 7, and I’ve  decided that I’m going to type whatever is on my mind. Hopefully, it comes out right. In the last year, I found that I have distanced myself from quite a few people….

Share your joy! ✨

It’s funny how we continue to make plans end though life has a way of coming in and shaking everything up. It has a funny way of coming in and rearranging everything we thought we’d organized. And though I thrive on knowing when, how, where, and why things happen or are going to happen, I’m…

Getting There…

There was a point in time where I used to apologize for not being okay. I felt like I owed the world for not being upbeat, not feeling happy, not engaging. I realized today that I don’t. I accepted it today, that it’s okay to not be okay sometimes.  I went to sleep early last…

Tomorrow/Today

“What are you going to do today that you would’ve normally put off until tomorow?” A friend asked me that question on Wednesday and it’s been replaying in my head since then. I jokingly said to him chocolate, but after a few days of thinking I’ve come up with a few things I would like…

Happy New Year! 💕

New Year’s resolutions scare me, because some of us use that as a crutch to delay change. I have a message for you, my wonderful friends. We wait for another year and prolong the things that we can do today. Please don’t wait for the calendar year to change before you decide to chase the…

Yes I’m single, No I’m not looking for you.

I hope this doesn’t sound like another “bitter black woman” post, because I am far from that.  A bitter black woman. I’m quite the jolly soul. In fact, I probably could’ve been one of Santa’s elves with all the joy I have inside paired  with my affinity for chocolate, cookies, and all things sweet. Oh…

Shadows of The “Cross-eyed Girl”

This one goes out to all the people in my past. The ones that I grew up with that made me cry and had me wishing that I would die. To the people that I went to school with. I don’t think you understand how much you hurt me. I don’t think you understand how…

Put in work

I’m about to lecture, are you listening? I’m not a “devout” follower of any religion, but I do believe in God and or a higher being. My religious beliefs or lack there of are not what’s important here. I wanted to talk you all about prayers. Sometimes we pray and look to the sky for…
