Music Monday - February Edition

February was a good music month for me.  I have put together my favorite seven songs that I listened to this past month.  They are not in any particular order, so here goes...

1 - Can You Stand the Rain
My absolute favorite song by New Edition.  So, I'm guessing after I kept watching that particular scene, it just made me want to hear that song over and over again.  For the rest of February, that was my jam  Even my mom mentioned about how much she enjoyed it!

2 - Broken Vessels
This is one of my favorite Christian songs by Hillsong.  Each time I used to hear it at church, it would just do something to me.  Now when I listen to it at home, it has the same effect.  I'm sure I'll listen to it again soon!

3 - Fly Away From Here
I'm not sure when I first heard this song from Aerosmith, but it's been on my iPod for years.  Last week, it randomly popped up while I was driving and I did one of my classic concerts in the car.  It was the perfect drive home.

4 - When I'm Gone
For those of you who don't know, I love me some Eminem!!!  Not a fan of his early stuff, but Curtain Call did it for me!  This song is why I purchased this album and I'm glad I did! 

5 - Every Time I Close My Eyes
I was driving out of the parking deck last week and this song popped in my head.  I hadn't head it in forever.  This song is somewhere at my parents' house on a cassette.  You know, back when we had to wait for the song to play on the radio for us to record it.  Omg, it's so beautiful.  One of the most perfect songs I've ever heard.  

6 - Night Train
You all know there is a little country in me!  I remember when I first heard this song.  It was a few years ago and we were riding to a job site.  I had no clue who sang the song, so I asked my coworker.  That night, I added the song to my library.  Now, when it randomly pops up on my iPod during a trip, I have to turn my volume up!  

7 - Mercy
I have not been shy about not being able to stand a particular song by Shawn Mendes, but this song right here is simply amazing.  He's singing from the bottom of his heart and there is nothing wrong with that!  To me, this truly showed Mendes as an artist.  I wish this would have been his first single, but this was worth the wait.

Well, now you know what I was listening to last month!  I hope you enjoyed this post.  I think Music Monday might me something I start doing the first Monday of the month.  What do you think?

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…
