The Callback!

So, I am going to try to write this post while keeping something a secret.  I still am trying to figure out some things and that is the only reason I am keeping something under wraps, for now.  

Today I had the opportunity to meet with someone concerning an endeavor that I wanted to pursue.  What I thought was a door closing could quite possibly be a few doors (yes, plural) opening.  I listened to her and she gave me some advice about how to go about some things.  She even let me know an event that she was in charge of and encouraged me to check out the site and put my writing skills to good use.  Like I said, I don't want to say exactly what it is right now, but I feel like I am going to be able to in just a few short weeks.

This is the point of this post tonight, Don't Give Up!  When it seems like a door is being slammed in your face, it's probably not.  It's just one closing so that you don't go down a path that you are not supposed to go down.  Pay attention to what people tell you.  You never know when they are going to say something that lights a fire in you.  When I write, my inspiration not only comes from my own experiences, but also from conversations I've had with people and things that I have observed other people doing.  

If we live in our own bubble, we will never truly get the chance to enjoy all that life has to offer us.  Take chances.  Make mistakes.  New take opportunities for granted.  You never know what is going to happen.  Make your life worth living.

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.



1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire month...as usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
