Weekly Thanks!

So this past week I will say was a chill week everything went pretty well, I don't think anything overly exciting really happened.  I would say my thanks from this past week, is just being able to have a peaceful and chill week.  I am thankful for being able to see the entire week,  and come around to see the next.  Also thankful for my fireball toddler, we went to a party on Saturday, as wack as the party was she was just having the greatest time. Dancing, running around and just enjoying life. I think seeing life through her eyes keeps me sane, and being able to appreciate the little things in life that 90% of the time miss.

A little goes a long way

The other day I took a trip to Walmart to get a few things, and like always I ended up sending a few extra minutes honestly browsing the store and picking up ish that were not even on my initial list (funny how that works out huh) Anyway after my "browsing" I was heading out of the store, and this lady stops me to ask if she could have some change. First thought that crossed my mind was, wow this lady doesn't even look like someone that would be asking for change. Next thought was she don't even look like a crackhead either so why is she outside walmart begging though. Granted my initial thoughts were very much just judging a book by it's cover, I didn't know this woman from anywhere and so I sure as heck didn't know her story. So I automatically said "oh I am sorry, I don't have any cash on me" such a bold face lie knowing good and well I did have some change I could spare. As I walked to my car, did it eat away at my heart. I got to my car, and I immediately dug in my purse, pulled out the little bit of change I did have and went back and handed it to this lady. In that moment walking backing to my car, it made me realize giving that lady that money did nothing to harm me. If anything I had a moment of fulfillment. I realized there are so many homeless people I drive by each day, with some type of sign explaining their situation and honestly 8 out of 10 times I read those signs and throw my face the other way because we live in a society where people who resort to begging are thought of as lazy and have brought that upon themselves. But the reality is we don't know the reason why they ended up in that situation, and honestly if my little dollar bill will do something in their life then I have done my little part. And honestly if these people are being dishonest, my thought process is am I the one to judge or try to figure it out. All I can do, is my little.

Weekly thanks!

So I have just accepted that I will be a delay on posting theses weekly thanks lol so please forgive me in advance. Last week was a pretty laid back week, I love the stress free weeks because it means smooth sailing week. Anyway lik usual, I think there are so many things to be thankful for in life but I would say the thing I most thankful from last week is just amazing support system. I had such a wonderful and enlightened conversation with my fiancé (still so crazy to say that), in regard to my future and just how to move forward with life and plans for both of our futures. He had the most supportive and just amazing thing to say "if your heart is not in what you are doing, you will never be happy" I mean clearly this something I already knew, but I think it's especially a blessing knowing the person you will be spending the rest of your life supports your happiness and wants you to not just do something for the money, but for the joy and happiness it will bring out in you. I think at the end of day, the people in your circle will be part of making or breaking you......

Reflecting on 25.....

6:09 PM

As my 25th year starts to come to a half way point, I have been reflecting majorly and just trying to realign things in my life. I am a big believer in reflecting, and taking time every once in awhile to bring everything to perspective. Look at where things have been, where they are now and where they are going. When I say 25 has been a revealing year, oh lord has it been. It's crazy to think how much has changed, how much I have learnt and just how much I have been through. You know when I first heard the word quarter life crisis, I thought it was so hilarious but I am a true testament to that word man it's too real in my life. But in my opinion and my reflection, I believe the quarter life crisis is only that big hill before the real purpose in my life arrives. You know just over a year ago I moved to Dallas, and even though I only was there for 9months before I ran away I believe that was just the ulitimate set up for taking me into my 25th year. And even though I am only half way through 25, I know that with everything that has come and gone its for the bigger thing to come. So if I had to sum up 25 so far, it's been about growth, learning, building, and most importantly just being a better me.

Weekly thanks!

So I am a bit late on posting last weeks thanks, but it's better late than never right. Last week went so fast literally felt like I blinked my eyes and the week was over, but i sure  as hell am not complaining though. All in all I think it was a good week, I would say two major things I was especially thankful for were one having a smooth sailing work week. I had as little hiccups and not as much calls complaining about something, so that in itself was an extreme blessing. Second thing I was thankfulfor, is I think I am getting closer to finding a reception hall for my wedding. Was able to see a location I completely loved, and it fits perfectly the look I have always envisioned in my head, just gotta lock that bad boy up and that is one major step for wedding planing. I am so excited for what this week has in store, what were you all thankful for last week?

Social Media activist

So first off I want to say I am so proud of my generation,  people are using the resources they have as an outlet to promote change,  be about change and being a part of the difference we need so I very much love that. That's not who this post is about.
This post is about the ish starters, the folks that have done no kind of research and know nothing about what they post on social media. This post is for those folks that instead of either just passing on something and keeping it moving,  or simply just hitting the share button they choose to comment on things they know absolutely nothing about.  And by commenting and sharing false info lik this on the Web, they are further promoting some false properganda and educating people on the wrong thing.
it's annoying to see such things because we have enough problems in the world, so to see added fuel promoting wrong information it's not giving us any resolve on the real issues we face.  Like I said earlier,  I am all for using social media to bring issues to the front and create positive, resolving dialogs.  But honestly let's not use social media as another amunitiom and ways to cause more trouble, than fixing the present issues.

Weekly Thanks!

So last year I moved to Dallas for a lil bit, and honestly I will say that was one of the roughest patches in my life thus far. But during that time I started doing these daily thanks, and ways to keep myself uplifted. So I have decided to bring that onto the blog, I think the best way to keep yourself from being envious and not being carried away by this world and all the social media hype is remembering your own blessings, and all the greatness we get blind to. So stay tuned, and hopefully I can inspire someone out there!
