The World We Live In, We Must Stay Strong 

We live in a world filled with confusion and hurt. Love and happiness. Pain and suffering. Light and healing. Though, with all the positive things we should give energy and passion to, the darkness has a way of rearing its ugly head, and steal the most precious things we hold near and dear to our hearts. It wants to grab onto the things that makes us human, turned them into a struggle just to live, and leave us feeling destitute.

We must remain strong and not get sucked into what is in the darkness. Love and light are there for us. And a life filled with blessings, abundance, joy, peace, comfort and safety.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend! ❤


Don’t Be Afraid To Make A Change To Be A Better You

I told myself over a year ago that in order for me to move forward in life, I must make a change. To come out of whatever shell I’m in and away from the naysayers who felt like I would be doing something wrong if I make a change that I haven’t tried before. Or to just do something with my life other than allowing those who don’t care about me no way or another to dictate to me believing that I should remain where I am.
Because, being in a situation that no longer serving you, especially when you’ve done all that you could do and you’re not where you want to be, literally and figuratively, shouldn’t have to remain the same. I never could get the saying, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” I feel like if one way isn’t working, you should try something else. You have that right to do so.
That what life is all about- reinventing yourself, to be a better version of yourself.
We have one life and we have to live it on our own terms, not anyone else’s.

A song that had inspired me over the years but it took going through a lot to know that enough is enough, is a song by Kelly Clarkson called, Breakaway.

The lyrics can explain it better than I can.

Here’s part of the lyrics:

“I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway”

Take Care Of Yourself First #Quote

(Late post. Unedited.)

Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone! I hope you all are doing well.

The above quote is a problem I used to have, and still do just not as bad as before. I’m getting better.

No matter how bad you want to help or do something for a person, you have to first make sure you have taken care of yourself first.

Please do take care of your mental and physical health. I’ve learned the hard way. Now I’m dealing with my doctor (gyno) won’t give my health insurance a prior authorization needed to get a mammogram since I’m under age. There’s nothing she can do, she told me.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, I’ve been experiencing severe pelvic pain for awhile that I knew better not to ignore. When she had done an ultrasound, she found small fibroids. Again, nothing she can do about it, because they are small and I just have to hope they don’t get worse.

Long story short, I’m trying to go back to the doctor I had when I was pregnant with my daughter. I’m told that my last doctor will have to send them a referral since given my type of insurance, I have to since I’m not pregnant now. They got me going back and forth between the two.

Also, I lost weight, not much but it’s something so far. I’m still eating right and exercising. I can’t stay away from my sweets though.

I believe I have jump off topic, but I just wanted to share with you all that it’s okay to help others in any way you can, BUT, take care of yourself first and foremost.

Take care,


What do you do to take care of yourself, mentally, physically, etc?

Time Isn’t Promise To Us

Hi everyone! I hope you all are doing well and enjoying the holidays.

I apologize for being away from you all. The last few weeks have been…well… I can’t seem to find the exact words to describe how the last two weeks went.

For one, my internet has been down, still is, and I have to buy a new phone since the other one is beyond repair. It’s not easy, you know, to have a lot of work that needs to be done and you don’t have the necessary tools to do the work.

Now, I can get back to those things. Again, I apologize for being away from you all on here and on the other social media sites.

With that being said, three weeks ago, I was told that the woman who helped raised me from an adolescent was in hospice care not too far from me. I had no idea she was sick and didn’t had long to live, and my family told me that at the very last minute.

I haven’t been around my family in years and we don’t keep in touch. Well, thinking I had time on my side, the day I decided to visit her, a few days later, I got the news she had already passed away.

Again, I found out late. No one bothered to call or text me either. My internet was down so it’s not like I could have found out that way. My mom told me who was told by my sister.

I was devastated and cried until I couldn’t anymore. The woman, my cousin, she was an old woman. Died in her early eighties. I haven’t seen her in several years.

I don’t want to take time for granted again. Time isn’t promise to us. I’m glad I said my final goodbyes to her at the funeral home.

Life isn’t to be taken for granted. Love each other always and be there for one another while we’re still alive.

Take care y’all!
