Nobody Ever Said That Being A Mother Was Easy

When I became a mother almost six months ago, my life had remarkably changed for the better. I was a stay at home mama for the very first time in my life and I was exclusively breastfeeding. My days were demanding to be a new mother and there were so many nights of nursing, diaper changing, and postpartum night sweats. Between having help from my husband and pushing through sleep-deprived nights, things started getting easier with time and patience of course.

Blood Isn't Always Thicker Than Water | Diary Pages

Over the past year, I have grown to become out of touch with almost everyone in my immediate family. I was raise by my mother who is a very shallow and one of the most introverted people that I have ever known. My mother is very superstitious and small minded. She raised her three children to be a sheer image of her in many ways.

My Inner Peace Is Expensive

I used to waste unnecessary energy trying to explain my motives to people and even for them to see things my way whenever an argument may have arisen. During these times in my life I always felt like I had to speak up and when I did little did I knew I spoke to those who took what I said with a grain of salt.

Keep Praying. God's Listening.

I have been taking time out to build my brands and to focus on my direction in this life. I have learned that I need to take everything that I place my time into seriously. For the past couple of years, I have only taken doing my product reviews and just videos in general as a hobby.

Roll With The Punches When The Going Gets Tough

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the meaning of roll with the punches is for one to be able to deal with a series of difficult situations. The meaning also does means via Google, (of a boxer) move one's body away from an opponent's blows to lessen the impact. 

For me, I have found that life often has a way of hitting you where it hurts. If life knocks you into a fetal position, what will be your comeback?

It's Okay To Turn The Other Cheek

Have you ever had to learn to just have to feed some people with a long-handled spoon? I use to be that girl who always had to get down to the root of someone's anger or frustrations with me. I didn't care too much for how people felt towards me especially if they were family or someone that I considered a close friend.

The Truth Doesn't Have To Hurt

Tell The Truth was one of my favorite tracks from the Empire 2015 season by Jussie Smollett inspired this blog post. I wanted to dig deep into me and share another part of my life story with you. Here is a photo of me when I was four years old and Lord, may I say that every time I look at this photo I break down into tears.

I felt urged to doing some necessary shopping at Walmart a couple of days ago. Before heading out the door I decided not to check my bank account on my phone. In my heart, I was convinced that I had the money in my checking account to at least shop under a $40-dollar spending limit.
