Tik to the toc

The one thing about life is that it is constantly changing.  Seasons change.  Jobs change.  Cost of living changes.  Your circle changes.  Relationships change.  Change is just an part of life that is always going to be around.  

Let me tell you what else is also changing - this blog!  Even though I have been blogging for almost 5 years, I still consider this blog in its baby stages.  When I first started, I didn't really blog a lot.  I basically just blogged when I felt like it and that meant I would go for months without posting a single thing.  Then as time went along, I started to get more involved in social media and there were (still is) some great bloggers (well, a lot of authors) on there that were so motivating and wonderful.  That helped me find my stride in this blog.  Then I'm not sure what happened last year, but I think it was sometime in October that I had written my 100th post of 2016.  I had a dream of doing that again this year, but I also realized that same intensity from last year might not survive all of 2017.  That is when I took a look at some bloggers I admire and I discovered this one thing - they had a schedule.  I've been on a schedule since April of this year and I have been really happy with the days I posted and not feeling as torn up when I take breaks.  



There were some things I wanted to do in my blog this year and as we approach September, I realize that I'm ok with not getting everything done.  Why?  Well, I would rather have this thing evolve than for me to stay constant and you getting tired of what I am doing.  
With that being said - something new is coming!!!  I haven't finalized this yet, but I'm really looking forward to collaborating with a really great person for this new task.  Of course, I'll let you know by keeping you updated on social media.  All I know is that change is coming and I'm hoping that it is going to be really great!

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

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…
