Love.. What?

Who reading this can raise their hand (don’t worry, I can’t see if you do 🙂 )and say that they automatically knew how to love OR truly knew what love was..

I am in my 20’s and I thought I knew what love was, thought I was madly in love more than once, but in reality I think I was in like and lust…

Which leaves me scratching my head confused as heck..

When asking friends and talking to family about love, the most common response I get is “stop looking and thinking about it and it will come” …

Which in my opinion is harder to say than do when you see it all over and in your face daily… I will say that I am a little envious of my close friends that have love because that is something I want…..But to be honest I really don’t know if I would know if love slapped me in my face because it usually does not come wrapped up in a pretty little bow like we are programmed to think while growing up…

So like my family and friend say, I am going to stop thinking about it…It being love…

Self-Control

Picture Source

What does this word mean to you?

For me, ‘self-control’ has to do with my health… I have been ‘trying’ to loose weight since I gained it the summer after I graduated from High School…

annnnd after I gained the Freshman 60 NOT 30…..

But in reality I haven’t been trying hard enough…

I love food, but I LOVEEEEE sweets..

This is essentially why I cannot or have not lost any weight.. My self-esteem is quite high….until I try on a dress or jeans that used to fit correctly…. 🙁 I know that for me to truly be satisfied with my weight and the way my clothes fit I have to be toned and in a healthy way.  I am now in a process where I am starting to think about how I live and I know that for me to be truly healthy I MUST make a lifestyle change, not just choose to go on a diet where I will loose 5-20 pounds but then gain it right backkk.

What about you? What does self-control me to you?


Graduation !!!!

I just graduated with my Master of Arts from Lindenwood University and I cannot be more happier.  Yes, I have my Bachelors degree but I played through that degree, I worked but didn’t really work, this degree came with long nights and tears.  There were many nights where I sat at my computer crying because I didn’t know if wanted to give up or continue on with getting this degree. Life is what you make it, even though I thought about giving up many times I am grateful that I didn’t and that I have people in my corner that helped me through those hard times. This degree came with stress, depression, uncertainty if I was doing the right thing, and sooooo on….. I thank GOD that I didn’t give up. I am a living testimony in more ways than one on doing the best to stay on the right path and not in confusion. Confusion will not leave but it’s what you do with it that makes a difference.

My sista Alesia graduated with her Masters degree as well!

Who has a testimony that they would like to share about a hard time in their life and they were able to get through it still smiling?
