7 Days of Me: Day 6: Stepping Back

Image
Today has been one eventful day today.  Apparently some people think I'm fake, because they heard me tell someone the truth.  Anyway, in order to really see what the issue is and why certain individuals are behaving a certain way, I've began to step back.
  It's very necessary.  In these 7 day so much has transpired.  I see something about to explode and I refuse to be apart of it.  That's why I'm stepping back.  It's funny though, every since some of my associates have discovered that I'm moving to DC its been attitudes thrown and its been an issue.  No one will really come out and say it.  Its obvious in there actions, what they say, how they act, even in this situation today.  Its obvious. However, I've talked to them.
  I guess they don't think I'm actually going to do it. I AM.  I'm just gonna sit back and let God do His Thing.  Sometimes stepping is crucial, so you can see what's really going on.  It may be somethings undercov…

GOOD NIGHT!!!

7 Days of Me: Day 5: Relaxing, ITS FRIDAY!!!

Image
ITS FRIDAY!!!!. I made it through the week successfully.
  Well it is day 5 of the 7 Days of Me.  I must admit that this week has been different for me.  I haven't been complaining or bitching about my uncle or about my life.  I've just been mellow.  I haven't really had a bad week. Its been challenging at work, but I made it.
  Tonight is Friday and I'm home alone.  I'm not complaining. It could bitch and moan about it, but I refuse to do that.  My life is too precious.  So what I'm single. Its a reason why I'm single and I have to understand it. I have to accept it.
   I know that I'm being prepared for the mate that will compliment and add to my life. That will accept me flaws and all femininity, my career, and the God in me.   I know he's on the way.  I just have to learn what to do in those "lonely" times. Right now I'm not lonely I'm glad to be in me time. I'm at home in all my glory and I'm relaxed. I'm cooki…

7 Days of Me: Day 4: Insecurities and Joe Biden

Image
Well, today has been a quite a day.  It is almost the end of my work week and for that I am happy!!!  As I blog, I am watching the Vice-Presidential debates.  Right now Joe Biden is hitting it and putting up a fight. However, Paul Ryan, or is it Paula? Is putting up a fight as well.  Now back to me...
  Since, this week has come in, I have been praying concerning the areas of insecurity that I am dealing with.  For some reason, things that were done and said to me during my childhood have come to make me second guess myself and make me insecure.  Even the experience that I went through with a church that I used to be apart of and that I thankfully left.
  Whenever you're used to people telling you that you are wrong for dressing this way, liking this type of music, for dancing this way, or for just being you and always being reprimanded and lied to concerning what God says, then you'd have the issues that I do.
  One incident in particular that stays in my mind was one time,…

7 Days of Me: Day 3 Its Hump Day and I've Been Pushed

Image
Today is Hump Day!!! It's that one day of the week that let's you know you've made it to the middle and still have a couple more days to the freaking weekend.  It may have challenges, ups and downs, but all shall be well.
  Today as apart of the 7 Days of Me plan, I've been getting in tune with myself. Today I really I had to catch myself because I was agitated at a simple mistake that I had made at work. Everything was corrected, but I was ill because My day had started out so perfect, but then this happened and that one particular co-worker worked my dangum nerves today.  However, I did like I've done most of this week, I remained prayerful.  It was difficult in all the chaos, but just as long as I was able to say "Lord, Help," or a "Thank you, Jesus," or just call on Jesus, I was okay.  I knew that if I could just make it through this shift, I would be okay.
  Today has been a day that I have been pushed to get what I need and want.  I had…

@younglegend3 @nateg10451 Robert + Nathanael: A Gay Kappa Wedding

Image
This is simply beautiful. Two Souls being married. Robert Brown and Nathaneal Gay tied the not last month at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort in Lexington, Kentucky.  They shared their fairy tale wedding with the world via Youtube this week.
  The video is very beautiful indeed.  In the traditional colors, crimson and creme, representative of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity in which groom, Nathanael is apart of can be seen presumably throwing up the hand sign indicative of the historically Black Fraternity.
  People have made homophobic statements and have tried to Bible thump all over this video, but it does not diminish the beauty and the happiness that this beautiful wedding sends through the air.   The video, set to Jennifer Hudson's "If This Isn't Love" the video chronicles the horse drawn carriage, a lovely bridal party with beautiful groomsmen and bridesmaids.  The fashion and food are also included.
 I must say congrats to the Happy Couple. I am very happy …

7 Days of Me: Day 2 Trusting Again

Image
Today has been a new test for me.  It is the "trusting God" phase.  Here lately I've been standing back and catching myself from trying to figure everything out on my own.  I realize that over the last couple weeks that I have not been trusting God with my whole heart.  I have been trying to work out things on my own, instead of letting Him work things out on my behalf.
  Last night I had to repent for being that way. The Bible tells us to trust God with our whole heart and He will direct our paths if we acknowledge Him in all of our ways.  I had to admit that I had not been acknowledging God like I thought I had been.  I had been feeling like I had it all under control, when I really don't.
  I guess its time for me to stand still and see the Salvation of the Lord and let Him work things out for me. It's a process, but I'm willing to let go and let God.

7 Days of Me: Day 1: Getting Back to Me 2: Prayer

Image
As I sit and write this blog post I am getting ready to wash dishes and getting ready to settle down for the evening.  As I look back on today, I realize that it wasn't all that bad.  Today was different. It was great, but it had its frustrations just like any other day.
  However, for starters, today was a day of prayer.  For those of you who know me, I value prayer greatly and I take it seriously as with anything I do that betters my life.  Whatever religion you are, Muslim, Buddhist, It doesn't matter, you know that prayer is a part of your everyday life.  It energizes you and it gives you strength. Today I felt strengthened.
  There were quite a few times in which I had to pray and be strengthened.  Pesky co-workers, crazy customers, and just annoying instances that you really can't control.  However, Prayer worked for me and it is still working.  I am thankful for prayer because it gives me an area of safety in God in which the enemy cannot find me.  I'm not t…

7 Days of Me: Day 1: Getting Back to Me

Image
Well guys, I must do this.  It's time for me to take a week to myself. I was on vacation last week, but I have so much other stuff going on.  Although I'm working this week, I'm just stepping back from hanging out this week and focusing on me.  I'm burnt out and I'm just stressed.
  I have so many issues concerning finances till it isn't funny.  However, I am taking some time out to really meditate and seek God concerning some issues.  This is all a part of getting back to me.  I really need this.  I need some things revived in me and some things restored.
  In recent months I've seemed to have grown accustomed to the negativity that is coming from the relative and discouragement that I've received concerning my life.  I've made up in my mind that it's time for me to take care of me for a change.  It's time for me to get out of debt.  I have a big move to prepare for come next year.  I've got to make sure that my finances and my spi…
