I got it...

Hello Gals and Pals,

These past couple of weeks have been what I thought very trying. I got sick at work and have been off for a few days (again, but I'm still employed) AND I received some crazy news from my doctor.. (I'm healthy no worries) ..

I found myself wondering what the hayle is going on???? BUT... I realized that I can't go on wondering what is going on, when I have the ability to create and make things happen.

I have got to use the talents that I have in my hand. Talents are things that are given. They can be ideas and opportunities or they can be problems and situations. Either way, I cannot give up.  Then it was brought to my remembrance that God uses your problems to make you grow. So I am allowing him to use them. I have to be obedient to the faith and my belief in the finished works of Jesus.

So with that being said, I began to revamp this blog. I am in the process of creating an actual website (coming SOON) and I will transition my blog to my website. I have a lot of things in the works. I am going to stay on this path and hopefully you guys will continue this walk with me.

While we are walking together let's make sure we are still fly! Below see how I keep my feet soft and supple and soooo cute while I am walking on this pathway

I get a mani/pedi every week. When I get my nails done I feel so pretty and recharged. I know some may say that a weekly mani is necessary but a weekly pedi may be too much. However I have really thick and long cuticles.  Chile it feels sooooooo good to get my cuticles cut and cut out.. So with a weekly polish change and new color it tends to dry my nails and I get those white spots sometimes on my nails. So thanks to my nail tech Angie, she suggested I do a nailtique routine. So every couple of months I do a week of color and a week of nailtique. My toes are sooo amazing now.

They are soo clear and healthy now. What do you think??

My mom taught me how to keep my skin firm, soft, and looking so great. The secret is OIL.. OIL.. Moisture and OIL.. So another way to keep my feet looking so cute and healthy is keeping them moisturized. I keep socks on my feet whenever I am in the house. ALL THE TIME!!!

Right after a shower or oil bath, I lather my feet with cocoa butter and put on a clean pair of socks. (I prefer white ankle socks) My heels are NEVER cracked and the bottom of my feet are really smooth. I stay summer ready, ALL YEAR LONG.


So as I walk this journey out, my hope is that you will continue with me and together we will see some amazing discoveries and be super duper fly!!

Um yea.. HELLO GALS and PALS!!

It has been over 3 years since I last posted.. Shame on me. But life happens and it takes you places and BAM.. you are right where you started. So here I am and guess what.. I didnt forget about you!!

I have quit a job, moved to another state, I graduated with my Bachelors, I am in the midst of my Masters program, and my journey continues. So since I am here again, what lesson(s) did I learn? One that sticks out the most is I learned that life is too short to contemplate on living to the fullest. Dont let anything stop you from living. NOTHING!!

My mom died suddenly in early 2016. I watched her take her last breath. It was sooo beautiful. (I will expound on this later) As I watched her lay in that bed for 90 days and stare at me, I could hear her say.. LIVE!!! Dont let anything stop you from living. Dont have the same regrets I had. Dont stop to worry and fret. Keep it moving. Dont wait until the last minute to live.

I know she was screaming this as loud as she could. I heard her. I listened. I am living!!!!!!

Yes, a lot has changed since I last blogged. One that remains the same is that I am moving forward. My plan is to continue this blog and maybe vlog some. I hope that you dont forget about me. Let 's continue this journey together.

Hey Gals and Pals...

I know I know.. Its been such a long time. TWO whole years. I wanted to RELAUNCH my blog and see if I can get my mojo back. Believe me I have been trying.

Im not going to fill you with "OMGs so much has changed" and all that mumbo jumbo, but lets start from my new beginning.

On June 5, 2014 at approx. 4pm I had a feeling come over me. It was a peace that I had longed for but didnt know if it was possible to achieve. I prayed for a sign, a tangible outlet, even an excuse to walk out of my old life to begin anew. WELP, that feeling came and I was called into my managers office. I really cant remember what exaclty she said all I know is that I found myself walking so confidently down the aisle back to my desk and gathering my things and walking out. Once I got outside a fresh breeze blew across my face. The sun seemed brighter. It just wasn't as hot as it was earlier in the day. When I reached my car and sat in it, it hit me.... I had just walked out on my job. (SIIIIIIGH)

They say a quitter never wins, however at this time I just felt like I had won the battle to the long drawn out war. I didnt have a back up plan, I didnt know where I was going to get an income from, nor did I feel bad about my decision. On the way home I stopped at McDonalds and got a plain sundae with 3 chocolate chip cookies. I knew I had made the right decision when I got home the cookies were still warm and soft. I took off my shoes and laid across my bed and throughly enjoyed my cookies and ice cream.

I want to take this next journey on my blog to express my honest thoughts and experiences as I walk this new life out. As of today November 2, 2014 I still do not have a job, I have no income, I have no one to fall back on in case of an emergency. However I do believe in a higher power and over these last 5 months he has truly kept me going. I hope that I can inspire someone to take that step to freedom and allow themselves to be led to something much more powerful than ourselves. I have to admit, sometimes I do get a little anxious and a little sad but I do not regret my decision to leave my job. I am much happier and much more optimistic about my future.

I do have some upcoming events that I look forward to. I will have a birthday in a couple of weeks and I will FINALLY graduate with my bachelors on Dec. 13, 2014. Life has been great so far and I look forward to standing firm in my word that I will not settle for anything less than peace and joy.

Over the next few posts I want to show what I have been doing over the last 5 months , besides looking for another position. I have traveled, I got a few tattoos, I have made a decision to leave the city I am in, despite owning a home. I have eaten at some great restaurants, I have visited some really cool museums, and done some
things that I would not have ever done had I still been working in the dead end job I had. Talk about a vacation....!!!!

So come back to my blog and allow yourself to be free and gain some insight on quitting and winning at the same time.
