Just a Few Gems I Keep Close.

There is no shame in needing.

Sometimes, you have to cry for no reason to find peace.

Sometimes, life is hard. Life hurts. And it can suck. But it gets better with time.

Time truly does heal all things; let time consume your pain.

You have to dig deep for happiness; it’s ok to admit that you’re not always in a great mood.

Don’t entertain foolishness and don’t let negative energy in your space.

You. Are. Lit. Don’t forget that shit.

Queens never stop fighting.

Take 5 deep breaths and handle that shit.

Live in peace.

Be aggressive in your ambition.

My October Affirmation List

For the month of October, roughly one month before my birthday, I took on a task of creating affirmations everyday that I use to motivate and keep myself positive.

So far, I’ve made 24 affirmations (2 per morning) and it feels really good. I have an app that I use to take words from, and from those words I create my own affirmations to keep with me throughout the day. I may write it down, put it on my lock screen or just go back to my notepad during the day. So far, it’s been helping; I can tell my attitude is slowly turning around. At the end of the month, I may reveal my list of affirmations, so hopefully someone will be inspired to utilize an affirmation, or take on the challenge for themselves.

I hope we all continue to push through this month and soak in as many positive vibes as possible! Find an affirmation you love and hold on to it for peace, love, strength, happiness, or whatever you may need that day!

#50Days50Questions: A Lesson Learned 

What are some important things I have learned in life?

Everyday, I learn something new; whether it be good or bad.  The best thing I can do is take everything in stride and take the experiences as they come to me as they are.  Lessons are just that, and they come into our lives to teach and make us better human beings.  So, here are a few things I have learned thus far in this crazy thing I call, life:

  • You can’t spend your entire life pleasing everyone; you will end up spinning your wheels.
  • Worry about what’s going on in your own life, instead of worrying about others; entertaining foolishness is only a recipe for insanity.
  • When you’re at your worst and your best, you will know who your real family and friends are.
  • Being you is the best person to be in this life.  If people can’t accept you for who you are, they don’t deserve you.

#50Days50Questions: Blessed

Do I feel blessed? How and why or why not?

Definitely.

This question seems so simple, yet I know it can be a difficult thing to keep in perspective at times.  Even on the days when I seem to feel like nothing is going my way, I try to remember why I’ve been blessed to have everything I have up to this point.

As humans, we tend to complain about the things we do not have, but forget about how much we’ve been blessed with otherwise.  I am guilty of not always counting my blessings;  there have been times when my thoughts have been very narrow-minded and selfish.  Whenever I’m not in the right space, I try to thing of at least five things I’m blessed to have in life right at that moment, and it helps to keep my mindset in perspective.

“It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap.”
