Black Friday

The Craziest Day Of The Year


Hello World 

Ok so why on earth do people make today the craziest day of the year?? I participated in Black Friday sales one time and I swore I’d never do it again and I haven’t!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฑ

The first thing I saw online when I woke up this morning were articles about people getting trampled on, arrested and sent to the hospital because of a certain item on sale in Walmart and I was like REALLY????? 

Is anything on earth really worth getting hurt or hurting another to get??? Hmmmmm???๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

The holidays are supposed to be a happy time, a time of giving, a time of sharing and a time of showing gratitude to and for those we love… 

Yet the media and stores make it a day of competition and that too me is totally the opposite of what the holiday is supposed to be about!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”..

For all of you that participate in this crazy negative pumped up day.. More power to you… 

Yet please try to remember what the holiday season is supposed to be about and be careful cause no gift is so important that you have to fight tooth and nail to get…. 

Today is just another day of the year so breath for goodness sake!!!

Have a calm and beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Setting Boundaries Is Healthy

Saying NO Is Too


Hello World, 

Setting boundaries isn’t always easy especially when it comes to family and people you’ve known for a really long time… 

It requires you to say NO NO NO without guilt filling your mind…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

I’ve always been a giver, it’s just who I am.. Yet learning to say no without feeling guilty was one of the hardest things for me to do… ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ.

NO truly is a complete sentence and yet for some reason we tend to want to explain our reasons for saying NO… 

They say we don’t owe anyone an explanation when we say NO… Yet why does it feel so yucky or mean when we don’t give an explanation???

hmmmmm ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Setting boundaries and saying NO shows that you know your limits of what you will and will not do… and your boundaries will be different towards different people too.. 

So don’t get mad or judge when people say NO to you… Cause setting boundaries is healthy and important for your peace of mind too!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—

It’s Your Journey

It’s YOUR Life


Hello World

Have you ever been so shocked by someone else’s behavior that it truly made you feel like you weren’t sure if it was you or if it was them????? ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

Well that’s exactly what I’ve been going through for the past week.. So much so that I had to take a break from social media to get my head back on straight and take a good look at the situation and process it fully… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”…

I’ve always been a people person as well as being very spontaneous yet had always worried about what others thought about what I was doing and about myself in general ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฉ..

It took me a loooonnnnggg time to not worry about what others thought about me, especially when it came to my doing what I needed to do for me and my peace of mind yet as we all look for a little validation, it totally threw me for a huge loop when someone I know (or should I say I thought I knew) stopped talking to me because I haven’t begun my journey in the bus yet! ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜’… 

Yes I went there… 

Not being sure if it was them or me because I don’t like disappointing people in general ๐Ÿ˜–

I have never been one that’s afraid of change and I don’t have any problem with being spontaneous .. Yet this is HUGE and being that I am embarking on this journey alone (something else I’ve never ever done) “I” need to know that all my ducks are in a row with the bus and with myself especially emotionally ๐Ÿ˜

The journey in the bus is a huge huge huge life change for me and for the first time in my life I actually want to do it right in every manner.. 

Although it is taking me longer than even I anticipated.. I’m taking my time.. So that when I drive away I’ll know that everything with the bus is mechanically sound and that I am truly emotionally ready to begin my journey to heal from the loss of my son and begin MY new life ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

What others may feel isn’t really relevant because this is my journey and however long it takes me to begin is OK.. 

It’s my journey to take when and only when…. 

I AM READY!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

People Will Be People

No Matter What You Say or Do


Hello World

“Sometimes it’s not the people that change… It’s their mask that falls off!” ~Unknown Author 

I’m not sure why it always amazes me when people act out of sorts… I’m always me and I’ve been the same all my life! Yet when people do a total 360ยฐ I tend to get shocked, surprised or totally thrown for a loop.. ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฑ

This morning as I was doing my morning reading, I came across the above quote and it hit me hard because I’m actually going through that with a couple people that live where I do.. I do believe that people come and go into our lives for a reason.. 

Whether it be for a lesson or for life yet I don’t understand how people can be one way one minute and flip like a coin the next… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

My biggest pet peeve is a two-faced person.. Maybe it’s because I’m so up front.. Maybe it’s because I’m too trusting and see the best in everyone.. Maybe it’s because I have a huge heart and am a giver… Maybe it’s because I’m an adult and don’t sugar coat shit.. I’m NOT Willy Wonka… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ …

I use to have no problem confronting someone and was never afraid of confrontation yet throughout the years I’ve learned that it’s not worth my peace of mind or energy to engage in high school he said she said nah nah nah nah nah games..Yet it still at times gets to me ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Moral of this story: People will be people no matter what we say or do… Just be yourself and walk away don’t let others negativity get to you!!!!

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Sometimes setting boundaries aren’t very
easy to do… Especially when someone we care about is stuck not knowing what to do…

Setting Boundaries

Means You Know Your Limits


Hello World,

Saying no and setting boundaries is very healthy for your own well being… Yet we tend to feel guilty when we say no…

It means you know your limits, and that you care enough about yourself and the other person to be upright and honest.. It’s shows that you are real…

Learn to set boundaries, learn to say no without feeling guilty… Learn to do what’s right for you!!!
