The #bujo and me!

Well, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I'm enjoying a new adventure by having a bullet journal.  Many people use this journal as a great way to organize their daily, weekly, or monthly routine.  I think that is pretty cool and I've enjoyed looking at some of the layouts.  For you to get an idea of what my bullet journal looks like and what I'm using it for, just click here.  

I didn't buy my journal until the first week of July.  In other words, I missed all of the adventures I had that first week.  They may even be forgotten sometime in the future, but from here on out, I'll be able to have reminders.  Seeing as how things evolve, I know my journal will evolve too.  Maybe it will turn into a weekly format.  I don't know, I might get so fancy that it turns into a monthly format.  We'll just have to see how that goes.  For right now, I'm cool with the disorganized mess that is my bullet journal (#bujo for short).  

For the end of July, I decided to focus on one thing each day that made me happy.  Well, that is how I decided to end my first month in the bullet journal.  If you take a look at the photo, you will see that I decided to go with a partial sun design and even used bright colors to get my message across - happiness.  For each day I did my version of the bullet journal in July (which is all but that first week), I picked the best thing I did or best event from that day.  When I have one of my down days, and believe me one will always come, I will have something to hold in my hand to look back on and see happiness!

I know this type of bullet journal is absolutely weird to some of my fellow #bujo peeps, but it is working for me right now.  Like I said, I'm sure it will evolve and get more creative as time goes on.  But for right now, I'm just going to enjoy this style and continue to do a positive page each month.

Here is my question - how do you #bujo?

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…
