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?

Many Years of Thursdays

Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault

I had a blog post ready to type.  I was going to tell you about my birthday month and all the fun I had during March celebrating with family and friends.  And then, Thursday, March 28 happened and Grey's Anatomy hit me with Episode 19 of Season 15 titled Silent All These Years.  As hard as it was for me to admit my story, when I posted tweets about being triggered and the experience, I finally typed WE instead of simply saying you.  

I along with many people were triggered by that episode that night.  Quite frankly, it's hard for me to write this post, but I'm going to push through.  

My typical Thursday looks like this - work, workout, do a devotion/bible study, eat, shower.  At 8pm EST, I am only communicating via Twitter because I'm going all the way in with the live tweets and enjoying my time with the Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 viewers.  It's part of my boundary that I am strongly holding on to this year.  However, that part…


Disclaimer: I will be mentioning my Christianity.  It's not the full topic of conversation, but it will be in here in a few spots.  Proceed with caution.  

"He has kids because God knew when you met him, you wouldn't act right."
This isn't the first time this has been said to me.  Well, not in these words.  It's always something and then you wouldn't act right.  Now the first time this was said to me, I got a bit spicy.  As it has been a continued phrase in my life, I honestly haven't paid it that much attention.  Why?  I know my relationship with myself and I know my relationship with Christ.  So, I did tell you that religion was not going to be a big thing in here, so I won't drop scripture on you.  However, we are going to have a little chat about energy. 

I've been extremely in tune with myself lately.  I've accepted a few things about myself...

I'm an empath I'm healing I'm on a path of discovery
Did you noticed how I took…


Ayesha Curry has been the talk of all the innanets for about two weeks now.  I'm not going to dwell on this because I have other things to discuss.  However, I will say that I wished she would have kept that in a private family conversation.  Just because you are in the light doesn't mean it all has to be in the light.  Also, I get it.  We all want to feel wanted.  Even the people clowning on her want to be wanted.  But go on ahead and continue to go off about her living a lavish life when you cannot figure out how to live your best one.  Moving on...

I didn't do my first Wednesday post this month.  Yall are just going to be hearing from me once in May.  But, I try to be as transparent as I am comfy with.  So, without telling too much, let's just say the end of April and the first 12 days of May have been a horrible hell that I didn't even know could exist.  However, I'm moving along and still standing. Let's be real - anxiety is a real piece of work!
