Blogging is so much FUN!!!

This week marks the 2nd anniversary of my blog!! 🎉I had so much fun this year, even with everything that has happened in the last 6 months…I have been able to still have my writing be so positive. I wanted to start out by thanking Fashion Potluck for recognizing my writing and creating a free platform for women to write, inspire and promote their work.

In the past year, I traveled, met new people and was able to tell peoples stories.

In October 2019,  I had the opportunity to visit one of the places on my bucket list which was Puerto Rico.  I went with 8 wonderful women who are from a group I talk alot about because of the sisterhood they represent. Click here to read all about my trip:My Trip to Puerto Rico

In October 2019, I also wrote a blog post raising awareness for Breast Cancer and I was able to tell my friends mom story. It was a great honor to do it. Click here to read: The Heart of a Dancer

In May 2020, the group celebrated 2 years with over 4,000  women members and unlike last year, we had a celebration virtually. I wrote a post to commenarate the occasion. Click here to check it out:Queen On

In June 2020, I had the pleasure of being featured in a great blog I follow called Lauras Books and Blogs! Click here to check out my interview:Lauras Books and Blogs

During quarantine, I have been reading more and I have read several books and decided to start a Book Review section for author titles.

First author I read was Rachel Hollis and I read completely”Girl Wash Your Face” and working on “Girl, Stop Apologizing” Click here to read my review:Rachel Hollis Book Review

The next author is a friend of mine Trisha Williams and she has written over 17 titles. She is also in editing and consulting helping other writers get their story out. These are the books I have read so far from her and going to keep it going! Click here to read my review:Ireesky Fiction Book Review

Right Now, I am working on a 52-week Blog Challenge and I am in week 30. I have a new blog post up every Wednesday on My Blog.

I am so looking forward to what is in store for the next year!!☺

52 Week Blog Challenge- Week 30

A Life Lesson learned

free-images-people[1]

Family, Friends and Business Don’t Mix

Let me clarify. When I say family, friends and business don’t mix, I don’t mean owning a business and working together, I mean telling your business. Oil and water don’t mix.

Let me tell you a story….

I am 42 years old and I am a wife and mother and in another life I worked retail for almost 30 years. Even when I was younger, for some reason, I was never the type of person to make friends easily. There are just those people that either are too intimidating to be friended or people just don’t like them. I have always thought that I was too intimidating to people. People say I have a great heart and care alot about people. This is true. For some reason, I tend to care too much and it sometimes works for me but more often times it works against me. People who are caring, hurt on the inside and tend to overlook those who try to take advantage of them. I think I am fun person but it just seems like when people friend me they are looking for what they can get from me.

I am very proud of what I have accomplished in my life including my family and I tend to overshare out of fear that I will be found dis-interesting. Let me tell you…it has worked against me time and time again.

Even when you are talking to your family, be careful who you speak to about your business-everyone knows that your life is an open book when you are not around. I learned the hard way this past year and I had to stop talking and generalize everything. I’m on a path to talking about positive things in my life instead of negatives and keep my opinions to myself. I learn alot about people when I just listen to them and talk less. I found that women like to talk with one another and share with everyone male or female while men stay quiet about their life with women and only express their feelings among other men….men do gossip. Don’t talk about your marriage problems or how rotten your children are unless it is your counselor. Everyone has problems at home, this is no secret and the person you are telling them to, unless they are living that same situation, can’t give you advice or tell you what is best for you. So, I would suggest keeping these things to yourself, otherwise it came come back to bite you in the ass. It has been done on Reality Tv Shows…just saying.

If you do not want someone else to know your business, don’t tell it. If you have to have talk, focus the conversation on positive things in your life. Don’t speak of things you’re going to do, speak of what is already in motion and done. People like to talk about what you said you were going to do, so, if isn’t done and hasn’t started yet, don’t talk about it.

Plans are merely Procrastination while Actions are Goals set to be Completed. LS

So my life lesson learned is to listen more and talk less. The world needs more positive than negative in it. Gossip and talking about one another doesn’t solve any problems, all it does is divide us. I f you want to share your life, do it in such a way that involves inclusion like a project or a mission you would like to complete. Empower not bring down. We all have to exist in this world and if we spent less time with misery loves company and more on love driving hate away, the world would be a level less stressful.

That’s it!

Book Review: IreeSky Fiction

Isn’t It Time You Wrote That Book? T.E. Williams

In this blog post, I have the pleasure of introducing a lady named Trisha Williams. She has an established and successful Editing and Consulting Services business to help writers get their ideas out of their heads and on paper. She is also a very talented author and writer of now over 10+ books that she has self published. Below are some of the works she has edited or consulted on by authors.

I have been taking up reading in the last couple months and I have purchased 3 of her many classics…

1. You’re Not The Boss Of Me-

This book was about a women who loved to please everyone and in the process developed feelings that were not healthy and had to learn some hard lessons and look to higher calling for help. I loved this book because it was relatable and it reminded me of myself at one point in my life. Like her, I wanted to please everyone and found out later that most people you try to please want to keep you that way and want you to never say “no” to them. My health and well-being became more important and saying “No” didnt turn out to be that bad. Women are always working harder then they should, Trisha Williams lets you know that it is not your duty to do it all and stand up for yourself. Please yourself first then everything else comes second. This book took me 2 hours to read and was a definite page turner.

I give this book 5 Crowns!!  👑👑👑👑👑

2. Heart Condition-

This book reminded of a lifetime movie which is great because it is very deep and gets into the roots of how much family can impact the way you live your life. This story was set with 2 sisters who grew up together and had to practically look out for each other. They were lucky enough to have a strong influence in their lives but they grew up finding out the hard truth about the cost of being responsible for one another. When I was reading this, I found some parts harder for me to deal with because the sister relationship hit home for me. I read this book in 2 days but it is definately a page-turner as is the first one.

I gave this book 4 Hearts!! ❤❤❤❤

3. Side Effect-

I just finished this book yesterday and I really liked how the story didnt single anyone out. This story is about a married couple who was to celebrate their 20 year wedding anniversary and leading up to it there were alot of tests given to them and through it they learned many lessons about how the body and mind can be weak. Higher love is the key to overcome all. I have been married 22 years and have seen lots of marriages including my own put the test and some have lasted others unfornately haven’t. I read this book within a week in between everything else and it is a quick read.

I gave this book 5 Diamonds!! 💍💍💍💍💍

I look forward to reading more of her work since we are quarantine right now and traveling is just not an option. If you would like to purchase these books or any of her other creative works, visit her website and click here: Ireesky

As I mentioned earlier, Trisha Williams is not only a self-published author but is an editor and consultant and can help you with writing your story.

“Isn’t It Time You Wrote That Book?” T.E.Williams

Dream job….hmmm…

Image result for free images of psychologist

Helping people with their problems…I know it sounds like a big headache but for me it sounds fun and you get paid for it.

Welcome to the World of Psychology:

Image result for free images of psychology

Definition: The study of behaviors and mental processes in living things that inhabit the world and how they adapt to their environment.

  This is actually my dream job.  I wanted to either be a Psychologist or counselor because I am a great listener and am very fascinated with how the brain works.  I am always analyzing everything to death and because people feel comfortable around me…it sounds like a great fit for me.  

  Unfortunately,  most Psychologist have to go to school forever and school loans are up in the 100k, so I had to come up with a more achievable goal and cost effective way to make a living.

31 Day Challenge-Day 12

People are always saying, ” If I won the lottery, I would quit my job, buy myself a mansion, boat and anything I have ever wanted.” I hear this and I keep looking at the people that are millionaires according to the television and I wonder why is it they are so unhappy with having so much money and time on their hands. Why are they killing themselves or going bankrupt after working so hard…I figured it out…it’s not money that will set you free, it is the love you have for yourself and others not the coins you have in the bank and life you live. I took Psychology in school and it is a known fact that most people want to be able to never have to worry about anything in their life, but it will never happen. Having money in the bank helps one problem but what about health and everyday feeling and emotions…you can’t buy that. The more you have, the more you want, it never is satisfied.

For me, the lottery is another way for the world to create one more problem for people who have addictions, those that dream of winning and never do, or taking hard working people’s money away that they probably needed to pay their rent with. I am okay with people every once in awhile having a little fun together buying a ticket or betting on games but when it disturbs the economic structure of us putting food on the table, it is a problem.

Don’t get me wrong, I have played before but I don’t take food out of my kids mouths or declare myself homeless just to get to misery. If you think about it, everyone you know is going to know you won it and that is when the problems beginning. I would rather have a smile on my face everyday and live my life then have to worry about people coming after me. I think if we are going to continue to play, let’s play for a better cause like free health care for everyone or allowing everyone a free college education.

So, with saying all that, if I won the lottery, I am retired so I don’t have to quit my job. Probably make sure my kids education was fully paid, & the house is paid in full. All the debt we have is taken care of. I always wanted an RV so I would get one to enjoy family road trips. The rest of the money would be used as needed. I don’t believe in asking for more than I have because I am happy just the same. We as people have to realize that what we have is a blessing and it was meant for us to have, what we do with it is up to us….it sets the tone for whether we are happy or miserable for our one life to live.

   Okay so…day 11, what is my most proudest moment?  Now most would say that a mother of three kids would say that is my most proudest moment or going back to school and getting a degree was.  Although it was a wonderful gift and my greatest accomplishment all four times..I am going to tell you about a personal moment I had with myself.

Image result for free images of retailImage result for free images of pepsi

   So, my story started 25 years ago when I entered into the the workforce as a Retail and Sales Associate.  I have worked for Boston Market, Marc’s Deeper Discount, Revco aka CVS Pharmacy part-time.  My first full-time position was with Pepsi Beverages Company.  After working so many part-time jobs for over 20 years, it was very hard for me to transition to 40 hours a week.  I had to make this transition from being a part-time worker/full-time housewife and mother to a full-time working gal to support my family.  My husband became disabled 8 years ago and was forced to stop working.  I stepped up. 

working momscropped-cropped-cropped-20180617_1425492.jpg

   So I worked 40, 50, 60 and sometimes 70 hours a week to keep a roof over our heads, the lights on, food in our belly and still be able to save money on the side for emergency.  I did this for 4 years straight all while going to school to get my business degree. One day we decided it was time to take that next step……

20190808_133708[1]

I bought us a home!!

   When we received the keys to our very own home after renting for so long…I cried..it was my proudest moment!! Most people wait a life time to own their very own home long ago but to know that I was able to get this house after so much time, I couldn’t believe it.  I was 38 years old and indeed very proud of taking care of my family. We have now been in Lakeland Florida for 4 years, I am now retired and am loving every minute of it!!

That’s all I have for you today until tomorrow guys, don’t forget to…

   First Celebrity crush….really has changed over the years with all the new actors making their way to television and radio. I didn’t have any celebrity crushes as a child…I know that sounds weird but for some reason no one person gave me that spark. I got older and then that is when I started watching movies and I got my list.

And here it is…..

IMG_20190804_020222[1]

Oohh…lala…My list starts from left to right with Johnny Depp, I fell in love with him in Pirates in the Caribbean.  Next up, Terrence Howard, I fell for his spunk in Best Man.  Mr. Ray Liotta an Irishmen, Italian and gangster in of my favorite movies GoodFellas, he was gorgeous.  Last but not least, Superman himself, Dean Cain, I loved him as Clark/Superman and also in the movie Out of Time with Denzel Washington.

As much as I loved all these guys then, right now I’ve got my eye on only one crush

Robert Downey Jr.

IMG_20190804_020234[1]

Fell for him while he was doing Iron-man and then he kept going with the Avengers.  

  Next up is Celebrity girl crushes…

IMG_20190804_020249[1]

Jillian Michaels – I idolize her for her strength and courage.  She represents a women who has proven through it all that women can overcome how they feel about themselves and how the world judges them based on their looks and sexuality.  

Michelle Rodriguez I have admired her since the Fast and Furious.  She is a bad ass on screen and a soft feminine energy off-screen with a caring spirit.

Both ladies are beautiful and sexy in their own unique way.

Sorry, I didn’t have any singer celebrity crushes……the 90’s were a very confusing time..lol.

Well that’s all I got for now….

     I only have two piercings, one in each year.  These are very significant because I got these when I was 40 years old.  I couldn’t get my ears pierced at a younger age before 18 years old so I kind of got used to not having it so I didn’t get it done.  My mom and I were at a jewelry counter last year and we were looking at earrings and she said “Why don’t you get your ears pierced?” So I did it, it hurt for like 60 secs each ear but I am glad I did it!! My mom was so proud of me. I love wearing all kinds of earrings now especially hoops…it goes with personality.

Right now , I have 5 piercings to date. Each one of my tattoos has a significant meaning behind them.  Most of my tattoos have my kids names on them.  The Phoenix is representative of the University I attended and got my college degree.  The butterfly and long tiger represents my freedom to live life and being able to go after what I wanted.  I am waiting to get my 6th and final tattoo…..
