Step To the Mic

I don't know about you, but as long as I can remember, the elders in my family have always said you have to speak things into existence.  What I've learned in my adult life is that you can also speak negative things into existence.  

You want a happy life?  Speak a happy life into existence.  I don't know what you have to do when you get up first thing in the morning, but do something that gets you motivated for the day.  I'm not stupid, I know there is a possibility that something or some things might derail that positive spirit, but you MUST stay strong during the day.  Find you a mantra that you repeat in order to keep your sanity.  
You want a great relationship?  Ask for what you want and speak it into existence.  Want a different job?  Do the work to get noticed and speak it into existence.  You want a new place to live?  Get on that savings plan and speak it into existence.  

However, there is one small thing you have to do in order to properly speak things into ex…

Feel the music

Music.  It crosses countries, races, nationalities - oh I just love how it brings people together.  I just can't get enough of it.  If you check out my iPod and Amazon accounts, you will find anything on there except hard rock.  I just can't handle it because it's too loud for me.  But for those of you who love it, rock on!!!  

So, one of my fav artists has a new album out.  If you didn't know, I'm a huge Kelly Clarkson fan.  She will always be the American Idol.  Well, one of her new songs is called Move You.  If you haven't heard it, click on the link to get to her YouTube page and have a listen...but come right back to finish this.  

Someone left a simple comment how did I feel the Holy Spirit?  In the comments that followed, someone said something about always bringing God into things and then someone else said something that made a lot of sense...

Seriously, if you don't feel something from the music you are listenin…

Here we go...again...

It's no big secret that I took a break from blogging.  It was a great break, but during that break, I was more observant to my social media, especially Twitter.  I'm still hostile with Instagram because that out of order madness is really getting on my nerves.  Back to the tweets though.  I NEVER realized how much wannabe drama there is in the blogging community.  

There are a few things I noticed that I would really like to bring to your attention.  If you are a blogger reading my blog, you will probably already know about this madness.  If you are just a cool person reading my blog, I'm about to probably open up a can of worms.  

1 - Money makes the world go round.
There are wonderful bloggers out there.  Some make money off their blogs, some don't.  Truth be told, I've made money off this blog.  I haven't made $100 bucks, but I have made some money.  I'm not in it for the money.  I do this blog simply because I love to write.  But there are some bloggers ou…

Let's Grow!

People grow.  Sometimes, that means distance comes with growth.  It's not the fault of either person, it's just something that happens in life.  What gets really messed up is when someone is trying to hold on instead of letting life just take its course.  

Life is a crazy thing.  I've been experiencing changes in the past months and that has really put a lot of stuff in perspective.  So, let me give you the surface of some things that has happened in the past three months.  

One of my relatives basically told me on Facebook exactly what she thought about me.  Like, she went off on me for something I said that I thought was funny.  In fact, I put smiley faces at the end of the post.  Guess some people don't have a sense of humor.  

Well, this one is a bit hard for me because thinking about it upsets me.  One of my friends has been arrested.  Ugh, it just makes me angry and when I saw her mugshot, it really hurt because that is not the person I know.  That is not the person…


I know it's been a while.  I apologize, but you know I'm a firm believer in taking breaks.  What I didn't expect was for this break to take so long.  I've been on the rest of my social media sites, but I just couldn't bring myself to write.  It was hard.  Truth be told, I would sit at my laptop and have no interest in blogging.  Not because I didn't want to, but because I couldn't.  

Although you know I'm on medication for it, my anxiety has been truly taking me on an adventure right now.  I'm calm and I am really happy about that, but my nerves have been out of control.  I'm nervous about studying for a test to get my full engineering license.  I've been nervous about my relationship (which apparently all I had to do was talk to my love and that got handled), I've been wary of a few friendships, and since I just started a new job, I just want to do a good job.  But, there has been some good...

If you have known me for any length of time, …
