I really wanted to do this post last week, but I was not in the right space to do it.  I was thinking negatively about the situation, even though I had handled it well.  I had a few people tell me their response would have been totally different, but I did well.  Honestly, during my response, I just kept thinking I'm trying to build a brand.  I can't do that while going off on people at the same time.  Who is going to want to support someone like that?  I wouldn't!  I don't (at least not knowingly)!  Well, let me tell you this madness.  

Last Sunday, I posted something on my twitter about a sermon at my church.  All of a sudden, this lady jumps on my feed and basically took my tweet completely out of context.  I even told her she took it out of context.  I responded and thought that was the end of the situation.  She came back at me.  Something told me to start looking at her feed.  In my opinion, it was full of her being cruel to people because of their opinions.  Every single person has an opinion and just because you do not agree, doesn't mean that it is any of your business.  I digress...

I, still being polite, came back to her.  She finally left me alone.  I won't even post the feed because honestly, her name is not going to be anywhere on my blog to get any attention.  She's not worth that amount of time.  So, why am I even telling you about it?  I thought you would never ask.  

I write about what I know.  What I know is that I am a plus size diva.  What I know is what I see going on in my church.  What I know is my routine to put on makeup.  What I know is what products I use on my body.  What I know is where I like to shop.  What I know is how to design roadways.  What I know is how to mind my own business!  

Each day, I see a tweet on here that tears up my nerves - I don't respond (unless it is a cool hashtag I want to be involved with).  I don't understand why people feel a need to jump out of their lane and stir up something that is not any of their business and especially has nothing to do with them.  She had been on various feeds all day responding to something she knows nothing about!  Quite frankly, it was annoying and so was she.  She is a blogger and typically I'm supportive of blogs and bloggers, but I cannot support her.  Not because of the content, but because of how she treats people on social media.  If you are mean on your feed, I just think you're mean in real life...even though the person is typically nice and using the mask of a screen to hide.   

I wish people would use social media for good instead of constantly trolling or tearing people down.  It's annoying and stupid!  There are no other words for it.  As for the lady that attempted to come at me, I hope she decides to never grace my page again.  I didn't block her.  Oh no!  That would have been too good for her.  I want her to see me.  Then I want her to think long and hard before coming at me again.  But if she does, kind words will be waiting and so will another post.

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 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…
