So stressed. So pressured. So confused. So frustrated. So so so tired.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Birthday Surprise!

My friends gave me a surprise for my 22nd birthday!! :)

I wasn’t really expecting it, since we all talked about how I could cook for them so they could taste my “expertise”. And since we were meeting a couple of days before my birthday, I thought that maybe I could throw in dessert — like ice cream with toppings. Haha. Little did I know that they were talking behind my back.

We got to Jaimee and Zarene’s place and went up to their room and when we opened the door they started singing the Birthday song and Tin was holding a Chocolate cake plussss there were balloons lying around. Take note, it was blue and purple balloons, my favorite colors. Haha.

So anyway it was fun and happy and i really was surprised. haha i love my friends <3

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.

Discipline Is Not a Dirty Word
by Joyce Meyer

All of us have some sort of dream or vision—areas of our lives where we want to better ourselves or achieve more.

Maybe it’s to get in shape or have better physical health. Maybe you want greater financial stability or greater success in your business. Some of you may be believing for greater ministry opportunities.

Whatever your goals are, there’s one thing for certain—it will be almost impossible to get there without discipline and self-control.

There was a time in my life when I would think, If I eat one of those chocolate chip cookies, I’ll have to eat a dozen. Why? Because I had no self-control…and I had absolutely no faith in myself ever changing.

But here’s the truth: We can change. By the grace of God, we can begin making right choices and developing new habits that will bring us the life we desire.

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.

Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living.

June 8, 2014 - Sunday car rides with my brothas and sistahs


I haven’t been blogging lately because:

1. I was busy working

2. I didn’t want to blog my negative thoughts which was what I was feeling lately

3. I’d rather not blog about my experience and remember how i was feeling during those days

4. Whenever I had free time, I was talking to either friends or family about how sad and lonely i felt

So anyway enough about my reasons.I’d rather not dwell on that.

I’m back and free and happy!!! :)

I ended my last day with a bang since I was able to go out for dinner with some friends! Today is a new beginning for me. I’m believing that The BEST is yet to come.

Plus, today is my momma’s birthday! I’m actually preparing dinner for tonight and I hope my brother will be able to pass by a bakery somewhere and buy me the cake I requested.
