Next Chapter: February 


Chapter 2

January was filled with craziness that is slowly spilling into February. It’s the first day, the country in celebrating Black History Month, Beyoncé carrying twins, the super bowl, & Valentine’s Day plans. 

This month is already filled with greatness. We get to honor and respect the legacy that African Americans have l left behind. We get to understand all that we have blessed with by their strength to endure all that they went through so that we can now have a better life. We still have a long way to go. I’m happy that I can learn more that what they teach in schools to really understand what was left behind. 

Let’s get this next chapter started. 

Hello 2017….


Yay!!!! We made it. Hello 2017. Still here. Still learning. Still growing. Forever grateful for all that I’ve learned so far. I’m grateful for the opportunity that I’ve been giving to still grow.

I’m focusing on my growth, passions, & dreams. Learning to let go of the things I can’t control and embrace the things that I can. This is going to be an amazing journey the good, the bad, & the ugly. I can’t wait.

Day 1 of 365. Lets make this a great story!!!!

And the Winner is…

Not who I thought was going to win. Its really interesting to see that outcome of this election. I’ve seen people in shock, angry, & confused on the decision that was mad this morning. 11/9/2016 will be a day that I don’t think a lot of people will ever forget.

I hope everyone is enjoying their hump day. I hope these next four years this country can come together and live in peace. I really hope that the people that came out and agreed with some of the hateful comments that were stated during this election realize that those comments aren’t going to help this country. Its just going to divide us even further.

This election is showing that there is still a lot of change that needs to be made. With all the things that people have said and shown its just getting scarier. 2016 is a year I will never forget. I just hope these four years go by fast and we don’t have a repeat in 2020. I guess its time to keep hope alive and pray for the best.

 

 

 

 

 

Election Day….

election-2016

Election day is finally here I’m glad. I’m can honestly say that I’m happy this day is finally here. Now we can focus on other things like the rest of 2016. Whatever the outcome will be will be very interesting to see. The polls are closed in my state so the party is about to start.

Tonight could end up with many people crying for joy or sorrow. I hope everyone took the opportunity to let their voices be heard. Even if your choice was not on the ballot I hope everyone let their voices be heard. The next four years will be very interesting time to live in.

So after tonight will we all focus on what’s next to come. Thanksgiving dinner, Black Friday Sales, Christmas trees, lights, The Jackson 5 Christmas Album (I’ve already started listening to Christmas songs…no judgements). The world being as normal as possible.

Until Tomorrow…May the odds be ever in your favor. #election2016

Hello 30’s: A New Journey Awaits 

So everyone says 30 is the new 20. So I guess for me that means a do over. 

I turned 30 in August not really sure of my place in the world. Still wondering what was my purpose. Trying to compare my life to other people. 

Fast forward to October. Still wondering about my purpose, narrow down my passion, and unemployed. Life is funny sometimes. 

I have a lot of different dreams that I would love to accomplish and I never took the step because I was comfortable. Afraid to try anything new. Never able to step out of my comfort zone. Never having enough faith that I would succeed. 

Well as a turn of events I am no longer employed. No longer have my comfort zone to protect me. It’s now time to step it up and finally follow up on these dreams of mine. Even if none pan out. I can say that I tried and didn’t give up. 

So dirty 30 is a brand new beginning. A fresh start on life. It’s time to put on my big girl panties and get to work. It’s time to make some changes. I need to learn how to live in the moment and keep the faith and move forward. 

Finally Friday

So today was another day at this place that I call work. So it started off with me being almost late for work and with there new thing being docked 15 minutes for being one minute late. Then a meeting that didn’t seem to end. The powers flicked on and off. I was hoping it would stay off the whole day so I could leave early. It didn’t last very long. Then before going to lunch I lost my bank card. Luckily it was found and everything in life fell back into place. Picked up my check made it to the bank before it closed and realized all that needs to be paid so I’m basically broke all over again. But that’s nothing new though.

My new situation is I’m getting bored with my hair I want to dye it but it needs to be something that won’t make me look crazy at the work place. I want to be daring but I don’t want to be unemployed. So this is where my dilemma begins. I could braid it but ill get tried of with within two weeks. It’ll be a waste of time and money. I want to go red again but I don’t want it to be to crazy that it wouldn’t work in the workplace. Don’t want to cut it I want it to be long that I do know. That’s the only thing that I’m positive about when it comes to my hair. The struggles (not really) of being born female.

Well whatever I decide I have the weekend to make something happen. If not the come madness Mondays I’ll be struggling with a hair style that I actually would like. If anyone has any ideas what to do or how to style natural hair please let me know. Leave a comment of things that you’ve tried. Even if you didn’t like the outcome. I’ll just be glad to know I’m not alone in this crazy hair madness. Until next time.
