NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE

NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE. When I was you ger and heard that, of course my response was “yes it is”. I was a kid and had no responsibilities. I am a young adult now and I feel the full affects of the saying.

I have not come across anything that is absolutely free. No strings attached- no signature, no email, no phone number, or any amount of money.

I do wish to really create a program that is 100% free. All I would be asking for is support to trust in my program.

Life is not a cake walk

As a child, you can not comprehend that those days were precious and that they would not be as so forever. It is not until you are really adulting that you can look back on those days and wish you cherished them more. From now on, we have to make it a habbit to always be appreciative, cherish every moment, and be happy for life itself.

Building My Brand

These days I have been contemplating what I want to do in lofe. I want to build a brand for myself. Well, about me. Everntually my social media will be up to par and will reflect who I am and what I am interested in. It will take a lot more work. I have to start by not being camera shy. Build confidence and always be ready for a camera to snap. Any tips on how to achieve this?

New job

I know it has been a while, I am sorry. I recently have started a new job and it has taken a lot more of my time. Not complaining, I am super excited. It reminds me of when I was in school, the only difference is I do not catch on so easily these days. Good thing I mastered studying before I finished school. New beginnings are always great.

Change isn’t bad

I need to make a change in my attitude. It can be really horrible sometimes. I allow it to determine how my day goes. One small thing can trigger it and it is a deterrence. My mom used to tell me my attitude was bad and I needed to change it. It is difficult but I am making it happen. I no longer want it to determine anything for me. I have to take control and not allow an attitude to ruin me.

It’s Thursday so let us throw it back.

I have had issues with my weight. I still have issues with it. I remeber coming home after spending a summer with my dad and my mom saying to me “boy did you get fat”.

Which then followed with my siblings taunting me about it. Of course it hurt my feelings. Surprisingly it was not a struggle to get rid of the extra weight I had picked up. We were always active with dance lessons, drill team, cheer leading, and outside play time.

I finally have got into the habbit of working out. When I first started it was a thrill. I had gained a substanial amount of weight (from this good ol southern hospitality) and I did not notice it right away. I noticed a few articles of clothing did not fit 100% comfortable but I could still get into┬áthem so I did not stress it. It wasn’t until I saw a picture taken of me that it hit me and I instantly felt disgusted.

I could not believe I left myself go and allowed myself to get to that weight AND was blind to it. I then decided it was time to get into the gym and get serious.

I do have hypothyroidism and with it my weight does fluctuate but I, knowing this, have to make sure I stay aware of my weight. I can not get besides myself.

My boy friend and I made the first step by getting a gym membership. We were on top of working out and eating regularly. I instantly started seeing results and fell in love with myself all over again.

I fell off, I will admit. I would go and get the hng of it and find an excuse to not stick with it. It’s 2017 and my year is going fantastic so it is time for me to knuckle down and get back to it. Healthy lifestyle makes everything else a breaze. Get better sleep, stress less, have more energy, and ultimately better moods.

We have been back in for three days and I am feeling the burn but it is one well worth it. I know what my body is capable of sculpting into. It is time to have the complete package. Here is to throw back Thursday remonding me of where I have come from.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hair and Its Importance

All I know is lengthy hair. My hair has always been long and it has been very comfortable. I have been struggling with it lately. I decided to go heat free for a year and a half and I did not realize how damaged it was until I took that break. My hair had been trained, meaning that no matter what it would be straight. When I straightened my hair, it wouls allow it to last longer.

I have a curl pattern now and I am so impatient when it comes to growing it out fully. If I cut my damaged ends, my curls will really thrive and reach their full potential. But, I also will lose my length. Of course it will grow back, very healthy, it is the waiting that I am not thrilled about. I am stuck in my comfortability and what I am used to.

For some people, they have no attachment to their hair. They can do anything to it and it not phase them at all. Color, cut, shave anything. Me I think about it more than five times. I decided to semi dye my hair and it took me one year to get it done. I am trying not to be so attached to my hair and I would love to say that it does not take part in making me who I am, but that would not be true.

Hopefully I get over it and do what needs to be done. I can continue without cutting my hair and just trim until all the dead ends are gone. It is just that my hair would be easier to manage after the cut.
