The Grown Up - Part 2

Ok, let's continue from Part 1.  If you are just joining me, here is a quick recap...I'm growing up, I found an article that interested me because it fit what is happening in my life right now, and life is just taking me on some interesting twist and turns.  Alright, back to it!  

4. It's hard for you to trust people
YUP!!!  I start everyone off on a trust level.  If you do something to me, it drops and as you continue to do stupidity around me, it will continue to drive me away.  I've been burned by so many people and I know everyone is not like them, but once it happens, it's hard to forget.  Even my friends, I trust them, but I'm also very watchful.  Unfortunately, this has cost some people along the way (notice I didn't say friends), but I am for the better.  

5. You always feel that your life is boring
I think this about my life.  But I'm ok.  This is the year I've been more focused on me and that has made it boring, especially to those around me.  You don't go out.  You don't do anything.  You're constantly working.  Yes to all of those.  But I don't need to be out all the time in order to be seen.  I have this blog.  I have my instagrams (yes, I'm announcing my new one in a few weeks)!  I am working on making this blog better.  I'm working on my crafts.  I'm working on growing my new business (yes, announcement coming in a few weeks as well).  If on the outside looking in that makes me boring, then boring I shall be! 

6. You are too familiar with the feeling of sadness
The article mentions about being at the lowest point in your life, but it also mentions something really great - you acknowledge that life is not always about being happy.  Life comes with ups and downs and I have learned to be grateful for those.  Life is hard.  If it were easy, it wouldn't be so much fun.  You learn from those down moments.  You learn from those rejections.  But in those low times, you learn that you can handle so much more than you ever thought you could ever hold.  

7. You always feel like you're running out of time
Some days, I truly amaze myself that I can sleep, go to work, get things ready for my blog, have a personal life, have a social life, and be a friend in 24 hours.  I feel like I'm running out of time to get married.  I feel like I'm running out of time to have a child.  I feel like I'm running out of time because everyone around me seems to be moving at the speed of light and I'm moving at a snail pace.  But I'm fine where I am...if I can just get my heart to figure that out.  I have as much time as I am allowed.  I don't know how much time that is, but I hope that I use what time I have left to make an important mark on this world. 

That's it for now.  We'll finish this up on Sunday at 9am EST!  What has these two post caused you think about?

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…
