I have seen things in a whole new light I got to see the earth from above and it is beautiful.
I got to fly in an airplane for the first time, I was sooo nervous but the experience was worth it. Its funny because on the way back home they put me on an 30 passenger plane and I FREAKED out the cool thing was the way everyone reacted, the attendant and other passengers helped keep me calm so I would like to Thank Them ALL, I give myself so much credit for being so brave I looked out of the window often and I realized that fear is a mindset. I share this experience with you because it is a reminder to believe in yourself, and a reminder that no matter how old you are, you will have moments that call for courage and if you "Suck It Up" and make it through the situation you only make yourself stronger.
This past weekend I learned how important it is to take time for yourself.
Here are some ways to enjoy your alone time:
1. Take a long hot bubble bath
2. Take a long nice nap
3. Have a Margarita (maybe 2...lol)
4. Watch a "Good" Movie
5. Listen to your favorite songs
6. Read a "Good" Book
7. Eat Ice-Cream
8. Go Shopping
9. Treat yourself to a Meal (your favorite foods)
Sitting here thinking about all my blessings, over the past few months I have found a strength within myself that I didn't even know I had. I have been doing things I only dreamed about over the years but never had the courage to pursue. I have learned how to be proud of myself and that is a great feeling it is also my motivation to keep pressing on. I am going to continue to work my hardest because my vision is to encourage others to go after their dreams too. "Can a Girl Get a Break" is my dream and it can come true!
“October 29, 2011 we were scheduled to get hit with a bullshit
snow storm; my alarm went off at 7am I laid there staring out the window for a
moment before I got out of bed. I liked to take in the fresh air of the early
morning that is the only time of the day that seems perfect to me. The sun was
popping up from behind the trees, but just enough to add a beautiful pinkish
purple tint to the sky; the birds were chirping and the only other sound was
that of a newspaper hitting the sidewalk; I rolled over and grabbed my robe
then headed to the shower. The phone rung as I was getting out I race to pick
it up when I looked at the screen it was this guy named Jason that I have been
messing around with. He is 6’2, physically fit, and fine! Most of all he knew
how to work my “girl” I didn’t pick up because I knew he wanted to come over
for a little “breakfast” if you know what I mean, he is a sweetie but I can’t
let him get too close so soon it has only been 2 months”.
Michael, I love all you guys and although you guys may
piss me off sometimes my love for you all will never change. You guys have to
live your lives for yourselves, just remember that all the choices you make
come with consequences. You just have to determine whether you want to live
with the consequences or not. I do my best to give y’all advice but it’s up to
y’all to take it.
“Damn, Ma you went in deep got me teary eyed. I know I
don’t tell you much Ma but I love you and appreciate all you have done and
sacrificed for us. I know it is hard trying to keep up with everything that is
going on while working all the time I think you are doing a great job and
sometimes I ask myself how you do it”.
