Music Monday - March Edition!

You know I love me some music.  March was a great music month for me!  I made a few discoveries and fell back in love with some music from the not so distant past.  In the essence of not wanting to bore you, I'll just give you a quick glance into my music library.  

1 - "Neon Lights" by Natasha Bedingfield
This song makes me want to get up and dance.  I know this song is a few years old, but I heard it for the first time last month on Amazon Music.  I put on a random playlist and this was on it.  OMG, it was on repeat the rest of the night! 

2 - "Scars to Your Beautiful" by Alessia Cara
This song is absolutely beautiful.  I love the message and I hope everyone takes a little something from it.  Music is supposed to be emotional and make you feel something.  This song does that for me.  

3 - "It Ain't Me" by Kygo ft. Selena Gomez
This is a new song that has really had to grow on me.  When I first heard it, I was not feeling it at all.  However, for some reason, about a week ago, it came on when I was in the car and I just started jamming.  I guess it has officially passed Shayla's music car test!

4 - "Anything Can Happen" by Ellie Goulding
I don't have a reason for really loving this song, I just know that I do.  I actually brings back a great memory for me while I was at work and when it came on, I just starting dancing.  I think that is when my coworkers saw the less serious side of me and I realized I could really be me at work!

5 - "Stop and Stare" by One Republic
This song right here!!!  This song actually hurt because as I've gotten older and really understand the lyrics, I know exactly what it is about.  Let me just stop right here so I can listen to the song and get lost in the lyrics.  

6 - "Say You Won't Let Go" by James Arthur
I feel like it took me forever to know who performs this song, but I'm really glad I know now.  The lyrics are beautiful, the video is simple, and it is by far one of the best songs I've heard this year.  I love lyrics and this one definitely shows the love this guy has for the woman.

7 - "Wide Awake" by Katy Perry
I love this song.  I mean, I really love this song.  When this song came out, I was in a dark place and I felt like I understood everything Katy was saying in the song.  For the past couple of weeks, I've had the song on repeat.

Well, this is the music junkie in me and I just love it!  I think it was a great month for music and I cannot wait to see what I get my ears to this 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…
