May Goals

You already know from the title what this post is going to be about.  Typically, I don't share my personal goals because they don't have anything to do with the blog.  But that's just it - they do!  When I'm working hard and enjoying life, my writing is so much better.  When I'm down, I think you can tell.  So, here are some things I want to accomplish in May!  

1 - Lose 5 pounds
I hit the dreaded plateau at the end of March and the first half of April.  I know this because when I went to the doctor and got on the scale, I had maintained the weight from the birthday celebration.  I weigh myself again on May first, but I hope June first tells a greater story.

2 - Buy wedding shoes
So, I guess I have put this off long enough.  Nope, not getting married, but I'm in one in the middle of June.  Time is running out and if it like the last time I was in a wedding, I had to order them.  Yep, I'm that girl with the weird feet.

3 - Finish 1 chapter in my book
This book doesn't want to be written.  I do a little and then I put it down, but I guess that is the process.  If I work hard in May to get one chapter completed, I will feel so much better.

4 - Treat myself to a date
Nope, my love and I have not broken up.  However, my mom (getting ready to be 39 years married) always told me to treat myself - whether it is going out to eat, taking a daycation, or buying that one thing you really want.  In May, I'm having a date day!  

5 - Attend my church 3 times this month
This one is tricky because it implies I'm not going to church.  That's not it.  I've been searching for a new church and I finally have found one that I enjoy, it's just that I like to visit others or stay home and watch mine from home online.  However, in May, I really want to attend the church I'm probably going join a little bit more.  

What are some things you want to accomplish next month?

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…
