Because I Love Me

Because I love me so much I want to make this clear

Keeping you there while I stay here is what I find necessary

Making sure that my world remains absolute

The problems that appear are the ones that I create

No manipulation took place

Because I love me

I know that forgiveness needs to take place

Not for you but for me so I can persuade peace to come back in my life

Living stress-free and not allowing you to mess with my anxiety

Blowing the whistle and sounding the alarm

Because I Love Me

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.

Am I What You Had In Mind

Am I what you had in mind when you were looking for love

Wanting somebody to hold you when you feel alone

Loving you when you are right and wrong

When your flaws are being shown

Exposing your weaknesses that you tried to camouflage

Am I what you had in mind when you think of strength

Wanting someone that refuses to go with the flow

Creator of my own lane and staying in my zone

Not that I would change who I am but just curious to know

Am I what you had in mind

You could have chosen any blog to read but you chose mine and I’m honored.

Don’t Feed Me After 7:45

When the sky darkens, and the clock strikes 10, the beast within comes out. My hair stands up on the back of my head, my nails grow and get as sharp as nails. My eyes turn bright yellow, and loud shrieks are coming out of me as I run on all four legs down my stairs. I rip open my pantry door and search for the sweetest treat I can find, but then I remembered that I don’t by sweet treats. Read More

My Stress Is On Vacation

Let me share with you my current situation in the hope that it will help you have a better day. Okay, so my day started with me in a mood of all moods. I swear there were horns on my head when I looked in the mirror this morning.

Have you ever woke up that angry? Read More

The Mortgage Is Due On The First

No matter how you slice and dice it, we all know that the mortgage is due on the first. You can buy whatever you need or want, but you better put aside enough for the mortgage. I know we all want to have fun and live a little. Which, to some, may mean to stop worrying about the bills that are due and focus on the now. Living in the moment!

I’m guilty of living in the now, and then I have buyers’ remorse and return everything. I literally have expenses written out to the penny, and I leave a little room for the kids must-haves that they tell me about at the last minute. I keep that little cushion because I refuse to put my hand in our savings account.

I treat my body like I do my mortgage. If you are good with bills, then you will nail this too.

If I were to ask you how long do you want to live?

I doubt that I will get an overwhelming amount of folks to say, “Oh, I’m ready to go now, I’m totally ready to check out.” But instead, I assume we all want to live a long healthy, happy, and productive life.

So if this is true for you, then this is what I have to say.

Make healthy deposits into your life every day. Think twice about what you are putting into your body and make it a habit to read the labels on every food item you purchase. I urge you to be cautious about the time of day or night that you are eating. I know that night time is the most challenging because we tend to get a little snacky while we are up watching our favorite programs. I know the feeling, and I encourage you to eat. But make wise decisions and make sure you engaged in physical activity for a minimum of 30 minutes each day. Your body deserves that self-care and attention or in the end, you may suffer.

Suffer from all of the bad choices stacked on top of each other and leaving you with poor health in the end. Simply put, your body is just like your mortgage, at some point in the near future your bill will come due. So don’t spend all of your money on unnecessary things and now because of those items you’re homeless.

Why gamble with your mortgage money? When you know that the odds are not in your favor to win.

Why gamble with your health? When you know the odds are not in your favor to avoid high medical bills or early death.

Start

treating your body like you do your mortgage. If you don’t,

your mortgage may not be the only bill due on the first.

My Workout My Plan NO DIETING

I hate the word diet. I cringe when I hear someone say that they have a big event coming up and they need to start a new diet. I’m always thinking NOOOOOO, and if I know you well enough, then I will tell you to hear me out for a few minutes, and please allow me to ask you what your goals are? Read More

Our Love Trickles

It’s dark outside

the air is cold

I can feel the Christmas weather freezing my nose

My hands are so stiff that I can barely feel them

When someone touches them it shocks pain into my entire existence

But when I close my eyes all I feel is warmth

I smell fruit and lavender and my toes feel like they’re in sand

everything about the earth feels like a comforting day in July

My stress is on vacation and I am celebrating life

With you by my side I’m left with pride

Your love is what I hold dear

even though it’s what I used to fear

Now I see thier smiles

the bond they share

When we are both gone

Our love will live on

You could have chosen to read any blog but you chose mine and I’m honored.

The Day I Stopped All The Bullshit

The Day I Fell In Love “Part 2”

Let’s talk about that day.

I was 22 with a chip on my shoulder and mad at the world because I felt like the world was mad at me. I had a temper and a right and left hook that refused to back down to anyone. I was out looking for trouble, which wasn’t hard to find because I knew where to look.

The truth of the matter is I only joined the military because I wanted to be taught how to defend myself if I were to be attacked by 2 or more persons at once. I wanted to be able to shoot a target in any location I desired on the first shot. My sergeants’ had to pull me off the shooting range. Read More

Sometimes I Forget To Breathe

I love the life I have, and I am very fortunate to live it. However, sometimes I just have to move fast so that I’m able to keep up.

You know what I mean? I have one kid going this way another going that way and more headed in another direction. They all have their own extracurricular activities to get to it and sporting events that I refuse to miss. I must be front row and ready to cheer and film the plays from time to time. Read More
