Day 22:

How have you changed in the past 2 years?

 

I feel that I answered this question on day 18…. Except it was one year…

I work harder now.

I am calm but still will pop off.

I am HAPPY. Wholeheartedly Happy.

I love me more.

I am looking at Ph.D programs.

I am not as materialistic.

I don’t shop all of my emotions away.

I get shy at times.

I don’t care as much about what people think.

I still have a love hate relationship with the gym.. LoL (no change there) but I have made healthier lifestyle changes

 

What about you?

Day 20:

How important you think education is:

I think it is very important, I was raised knowing that no one could take my education away from me. I was required to read year round and provide book reports and I was always in tutoring.  I was born addicted to crack and to be told that I was not going to amount to anything by adults and school counselors I find it liberating that those statements are furthest from the truth. I am a testament that no matter  what you have gone through in your life, you can overcome anything you set your mind to.  My God does not make any mistakes and he knows exactly the steps he wants me and will have me take.  I feel that I will always be a student of learning, and that makes me happy and giddy.

 

What about you? How do you feel about education?

Day 19:

Disrespecting your parents:

I have a thing for people who are disrespectful because I didn’t have my parents growing up. My mother and father had mental illness that prevented them from being able to raise me.  Of course I had my spell of disrespecting my grandmother..and I have and felt bad for this and I’ve apologized for it… I think and feel that disrespect should be nonexistent because our parents sacrifice so much for us and they deserve nothing but respect.

 

What about you? What is your take on disrespecting parents.

Day 18:

A picture of you last year and now, and how you have changed since then?

August 2011….

End of July/August 2012

Physically, I have not changed, I have lost a couple of inches but not much has changed.

Mentally, I am stronger and I am learning that if someone wants to talk to me, be in my life, be a friend whatever they have to accept me for who I am and if they don’t want to they can keep it moving.  I have also gotten stronger is learning that everything happens for  reason, I thought it before but I did not BELIEVE it. God places people and situations in your life for a reason and you have to sit still to listen to figure out said reason.

Hair, it fell out because of the color, and now the color is gone, back to growing thick and healthy. I did start locs, but my commitment issues won.

Emotionally, I was a wreck because I was still sad and lonely over my ex now that relationship is the furthest thing from my mind and now I am dating someone who is amazing… 🙂
