Things that can probably drive a person crazy but I try to hide about myself….let’s get started

  1. I grind my teeth all the time.  I believe it is a nervous tick I have, as a result my jaw is always hurting.
  2. I like to sleep on my stomach because I don’t like looking at the ceiling.  For some reason, the ceiling creeps me out.
  3. I like to keep the closet door closed because I think there is something living in my closet.
  4. I do not like my food cold at all.  My meal has to be steaming and the cold stuff has to be the right temperature.
  5. I walk through my house in the dark and hate to turn on lights.  I figure if there is a power outage, I am prepared.
  6. If I have a light on, it stays on and my family goes behind me and turns them off.

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning all about me…wait till next month when I dig just a little deeper!!

  What makes me feel better and has never failed?

                                 MUSIC

music-note-clip-art-21

   I love the sound of music. I love all different genres.  I am a fan of how music can soothe the soul.  If I want to escape within myself it is my way to solitude.  Music lowers my blood pressure, it balances my mood and it is very therapeutic for my disabilities and it also eases my anxiety. 

That’s all I got!!

I love music…any kind of music!! The world has changed as far as music is concerned.  Now, being old-fashioned, I will say that music has really gone south since the 80’s.  Now all I hear all about sex, drugs, getting high, disrespecting women and men and shooting each other.  I am so tired of it…I need it to go back to when music was about feeling good and being in love.  I hear these songs that I just can’t figure out why or how they were able to be produced.  Teens these days..this is all they know.  All we can do is teach them right from wrong and hope they know the difference.  Now that I have said that…let’s get down to my favorite songs of all time!!

  1. Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears 

2. Whatever it Takes by Anita Baker

3. Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is by Chicago

4. Another Brick in the Wall 2 by Pink Floyd  (I love all 3 parts)

5. Foxy Lady by Jimi Hendrix

6. Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder

7. Soul Makossa by Manu Dibango

8. Heartbreaker by Justin Beiber

9. Reasons by Earth Wind and Fire

10. What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye

Enjoy all the videos…until tomorrow for Day 22

Day 21…hmmm…something I miss. This I had to think about a bit because there are a lot of things I miss but If I were to look at the last 25 years, I’ m looking at my childhood and how things were when I was a teenager. I can remember the words…”Pounding the Pavement”

  1. Job Market has changed dramatically. Newspaper and flyer ads on bulletin boards. It used to be that you walk from employer to employer to fill out job applications and meet face to face with people who were your boss…now…fill out an application online and wait for talent acquisition to email, then first interviewer to contact for interview then you interview with someone else who may or may not be your boss…keep your application on file. This application process is convenient if you have a computer or cell phone but for others it creates a lot of eliminated candidates. My daughter is 16 now and she is doing it the old-fashioned way and she has had 2 interviews so far. Personal connection is lost between employer and candidate online.

2. Being able to get The News only on television. It seems like every time I turn around, I am unable to shield myself from all the bad news and anxieties of this world. I really believe that as the world gets worse with global warming, bombings and lack of respect for the people who want to wake up every morning and live their life, we will never see the light of day. I really don’t care for politics, I don’t like hearing about how much worse the people who run our government are doing. I am so tired of people not being able to leave their homes because they are afraid and with this happening…the rise in mental health issues and sicknesses allows for government and drug companies to make more money. It sucks!! Can we just go back to having 6pm and 11 pm news only and cartoons with great movies in between?

3. Last but not least…Courtships. Why is it every time I turn the television on I see teen pregnancy shows or couples divorcing after 1 year. I have been married 20 years and I have seen it all. These days it seems like it is harder to get a mate and people are just settling with the first person that looks their way. While they are looking, it seems there is the rush to procreate and have no commitments. What has happened to asking a girl out, taking her on many dates, getting know each other and then talking about plans to get married then have a family….everything is all backwards and twisted now!! Maybe I am old-fashioned but I think there wouldn’t be confusion if we were made to only be attracted to who we are supposed to be with and everyone else look like aliens…lol.

That’s all I got for you until next time….stay tuned for tomorrow for Day 21.

  Okay so for this challenge, I asked my loving family who knows my comings and goings and how I operate.  I told them to give me one thing that they find is one of my worst habits.  Here we go:

      My husband Brian said:

    “You do not close the lids or put lids on things tightly.”

20190808_205336[1]

     Okay, so, in my defense, I do this and it is not a good habit.  Sometimes I spill stuff but other times I get lucky and don’t.  As to closing the lids on jars, I can’t do it that tightly because of carpal tunnel and I can open lids that great so I use a can opener or ask someone to do it for me…lol

My oldest son Brian said:

“You put things in the shopping cart at the grocery store that are not on the list.”

Okay, again, in my defense, I forget to put things on the list.  Every time we go to the store, it seems there are things we need and I forget..lol

My daughter Briana said:

“You yell too much.”

Guilty as charged on all three so far….yelling is my way of getting my point across after I have already said it numerous times.  I think most people do this when they feel ignored, I am trying not to do it all the time now so I don’t raise my blood pressure.

My youngest son Devon said:

“You leave lights on too much.”

20190808_205315[1]

    Okay, so this is my light in my office…I tend to leave it on every time I leave my office but I am coming right back.  He goes behind me and turns every light off..lol

As for me, I think my worst habit is: 

“I warm up to people to quickly without getting to know them from the background.”

Image result for free images of friendships

    What I mean by this is, I have met a lot of people in my life and because I want to assume the best in them, they become a part of my life without me really seeing who they are in many different situations.  I am one of a few women who do not have many close friendships with people due to the fact that many have shown their true cards on the table after they see that I am a nice person.  I am a positive person and do not like drama, so for me to become friends with you, I expect that you show me who you are before I find out.  Communication is a strength f mine and most people who know me, know I mean what I say and do.  I am not transparent and what you see is what you get.  

communication

That’s all I got for you today…stay tuned for Day 20 tomorrow.  Don’t forget to

What I am afraid of? Most people are afraid of heights, spiders or being hurt by people. For me, it’s gets a little deeper for me. I have watched a lot of my friends and family members get sick and die so if I had to be afraid of something…it would be losing my ability live my life. I have so much fun interacting with the world and seeing what it has to offer, so for me to not be able to do that anymore, it would sadden me. I know I have a purpose in life and I am not going to waste it feeling sorry for myself and the limitations I may have.

For those of you who don’t know me personally, I have to endure many things as far as my health has been concerned in the last 4 years and I am finally getting to the point where I am comfortable talking about it in an open forum. Support from others who love you is important and taking it one day at a time is key.

In my daily life I struggle with:

Image result for free images of herniated discs

Image result for free images of carpal tunnel

Image result for free images of mental health

Image result for free images of headaches

Image result for free images of high blood pressure

Image result for free images of fibromyalgia

Osteoarthritis throughout my whole body along with Fibromyalgia. I have 3 herniated discs in my back along with degenerative disease so my range of motion is very limited to walking and stretching. I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to a work-related injury. I suffer from high anxiety along with ups and downs. I have to keep my blood pressure regulated along with dealing with headaches on and off. All of these things seem very major right now but for me, I am able to live my life accordingly and when that is not an option…I am scared when it isn’t.

Live your best life now, don’t waste it.

That’s all I got for you today…I know this one was a tear- jerker but I promise tomorrow you will laugh…lol

Stay tuned for Day 19…..

   Going back to my childhood, I can remember a lot of books but my all-time favorite was…wait for it…

20190808_190707[1]

  I still read this book to this day.  This isn’t the original one I had as a child because it got lost. I love the story line about a puppy who doesn’t listen to his mother and goes exploring when he shouldn’t and learns valuable lessons.

  As the saying goes: “If mama ain’t happy, no one is happy”

  I used to have a wind up doggy that I used to play with with my book.  Needless to say, the book and dog didn’t survive I’m sad to say…but now I have a real dog, his name is Sage.

   My favorite quote comes from one of the most beautiful, smart and talented educator and poets of all time.  Maya Angelou believed in being true to yourself and seeing others the same way.  She said that people tend to hide behind failures and things that are displeasing but in life she believed success came with growth and learning from what you didn’t succeed in. 

Text_Over_Photo1565291848068[1]

   “If you don’t like something, change it.  If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”  -Maya Angelou

I love this quote because it sets the foundation on how people need to live their lives in order to be satisfied with themselves.  Most people don’t realize that most of the complaining they do is a waste of fresh air and can be solved by just focusing on something different and changing the circumstances for which they are unhappy with.  I think of this quote everyday as a mom and wife who is looking for growth within myself.  I know that my happiness is no one’s job, for I am in charge of my own destiny and path along with God and if there is something I do not like I have the power to change it. You also have this ability too.  Have you ever wondered why people can solve one problem but not others.  Most people are used to being comfortable with what their circumstance is and they are afraid of the unknown or being a different person.  Maya Angelou promoted self-growth, change and progress…life goes on.  

That’s all I have for today…don’t forget…

   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….
