The Focus

We've reached the second half of 2017 and I couldn't be more excited.  My spiritual life is getting better, my work life is still great, this blog is still a place of refuge, and I'm going to try to tackle something so that I can add it to my list of things Shayla has accomplished.  As always, I am not ready to tell you just yet, but I'm a bit excited.  Also, I don't know if I told you or not, but I'm in the process of getting my Etsy shop back up and running.  The site isn't ready just yet, but you can check out the Instagram page that goes along with it at Divanomics13.  And if I have told you, go check it out again.  LOL!!!  

So, what do I want to work on accomplishing for this second half of 2017.  There are really two things I'm focused the most on - officially working with a brand and actually doing Blogmas this year.  Working with a brand is something that is going to be consistent, but Blogmas will be a first for me!  I have these ideas floating around about Blogmas, but I'm not ready to share them just yet.  However, fellow bloggers, if you have any suggestions that have worked for you in the past, please give me some.  

There are some other 2017 goals and I am really excited about them all.  I need to get another photo shoot under my belt.  That is a must!  I'm still very interesting in the duo podcast, and I need to start focusing on making this blog a little bit brighter (you'll know what I mean when you see the changes).  

I apologize for not posting Sunday.  I honestly just couldn't do it.  I've been having a horrible time getting back focused because of some things going on in other areas of my life, but like I said in my Friday post, my tippy toes are just getting back on the ground.  I cannot wait until both of my feet are finally flat and I feel a bit more grounded.  

So what else can I tell you?  As for right now, this is it.  However, you know I don't mind answering questions.  In other words, if there is anything you want to know, please comment!

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…
