The birthday post

I don't know if you have been able to tell from my posts this week, but I've been doing some thinking.  I go through this twice a year - once for new year's eve and the next is for my birthday.  Well, we are a bit into the year now, so that must mean my birthday has arrived.  

There is a birthday series I would like to accomplish and I figured I should just start it off with my responses.  So, here goes....

💛       💛       💛

1 - What has been your favorite birthday gift?
I don't have a particular favorite gift, but instead it was a series of gifts.  For my 21st birthday, my mom bought me 21 different things.  I thought that was pretty neat.   

2 - What age did you have your favorite birthday party?
I can't remember, maybe it was 10.  However, I do remember that the theme was Lion King.  Yep, it was pretty awesome.  

3 - What is your favorite birthday memory?
This one happened in more recent years.  My dad surprised me in my new city and showed up with the exact ride I had told him I was planning on purchasing.  

4 - What was your "birthday breakdown" year?
I had no desire to turn 29.  Not really sure why it was that year that hurt so much, but I absolutely hated the thought of turning 29.  Even when we took the family photo during our outing, I didn't even crack a smile.  

5 - What is your favorite birthday meal?
Both of my parents are extremely great cooks.  Now since I've moved away, when I do go visit them to celebrate my birthday, whatever they cook me is perfectly fine.
6 - What is your favorite birthday dessert?  
It's no secret that I have a sweet tooth.  However, I love my aunt's homemade pound cake and my mom's chocolate delight.  Don't worry, I only have one for my birthday.  

7 - How long do you celebrate your birthday?
I celebrate my birthday for a month.  My mom takes blame for that because she says when I was younger, she and my dad would celebrate my birthday for a week.  As I got older, the celebration got longer.

Well, there you have it.  If you are interested in being part of this series, send me a DM on twitter or send me an email.  I'll be happy to add you to the list!!!

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…
