Wednesday Writings

Hmmm… I think I like “Wednesday Writings” better than plain old “Wednesday.” What do y’all think? Guess I’ll try it for the next few Wednesdays and see if it sticks.

So, I’m feeling pretty lazy today, and today I have so much to do. Last week I was sick, like really sick. Had sinus problems on top of a summer cold. I was pretty miserable but could not sit still. I was sick for a few days and I kept moving like I had a million things to do– and didn’t! Now here I am today, feeling all great with so many things to do, and all I want to do is lounge around. Life.

Oh… today is my 7 year Twitterversary for one of my Twitter accounts- my main account- my fun account- my happy account- the one that keeps me smiling account. Yes, I’m smiling. Lol.

A few weeks ago, I celebrated my 8 year Twitterversary on my first account. The day I signed on to officially resign the account was the day of my anniversary. I had no idea. I guess that account had fulfilled its purpose. Hadn’t tweeted from it in years but was holding on to it because it was my first. Decided not to deactivate it because, just like my journals, it holds so many memories. Now I’m down to 3-4 accounts but only two are personal.

Anyhoo… as you can see this was very random. I just felt like writing. By the way, I’ll be 48 in 8 days and I have absolutely no idea what I want to do. I know my kids will make it exciting. They always do! That’s one of the perks of having adult children, you no longer have to plan your own celebrations. Yep… life is good.

Well, let me get up and get going. I’ll rest this weekend. Y’all enjoy your day!

Hello Sunday

Today’s blog is composed of two Facebook posts from June 6, 2019. When I first began sharing my Facebook memories and excerpts from journal entries, I felt like a lazy blogger. Then it finally dawned on me that I’ve already put in the work on the backend so why not share them.

The first post is Be Ready, and the second, Forever A Princess.

Be Ready

If you’re like me, you ask God for things praying they come to pass. However, after facing numerous setbacks you begin doubting things will ever work out in your favor. But in the back of your mind you know God is ALWAYS working behind the scenes. You’ve actually witnessed His work through others’ blessings. You don’t hate. You rejoice with them and tell yourself, “One day that will be me.” Well, while you’re watching and waiting, are you preparing? If not, you better be because when God starts moving, He moves fast! #BeReady

Forever A Princess

Happy Thursday! Here’s today’s social media find. As I celebrate my 46th birthday month, I’m still trying to figure out what I truly want to do in life. I just can’t see myself doing the same exact thing for the rest of my life.

Although my life is forever evolving, the kind of woman I’ve always wanted to be hasn’t changed. I am the woman I envisioned as a little girl– strong, loving, compassionate, empathetic, passionate, spontaneous yet cautious, adventurous, love challenges… The list goes on and on. Honestly, I love who I am. I know 5 year old Shaun would be proud of her 45 year old self. Yeah, she would love me!

Oh, and I’m still a princess even though everyone around me believes I should refer to myself as a queen.🙄 No… I’m a princess.

Hope you enjoyed my memories. They always make me smile. Wishing you a wonderful week. Stay safe and be blessed.

Wednesday

Positive vibes only!

So today I decided to share another Facebook memory. I’m not sure what was going on at the time but it seems as if I was fed up with negativity. I’ll just say this, once I started distancing myself from negative people and situations, my life became so much more peaceful. Today, when negativity rears its ugly head, positivity rushes in like a superhero and Knocks It Out! No lie! I’m smiling as I write because I couldn’t say this five years ago, which is when I wrote this post. Listen, when I tell you God has put in some work over the years, believe me. I’m sooo loving my new life!

Just thinking about life.

Trying to get people to see things differently is very difficult. If a person had a negative experience with a person, place or thing, it’s almost impossible to get them to see anything positive about any of those things. So do you continue to encourage them to be positive or just leave it alone? Negative people (myself included) and situations are exhausting! Whenever I feel myself becoming negative I try to remove myself from whatever is causing the negativity. Those vibes are contagious!

So to answer my question- Do you continue to encourage people to be positive or leave the situation alone?. Well, I’m learning to let people be. Whatever that person feels is on them. If they enjoy negativity, they enjoy it. I’ve learned to accept who they are, which has made my life so much easier. My opinions are mine and theirs are theirs. Life is too short to be stressed over things and situations only God can change. But ALWAYS keep praying for them! Be blessed~

Listen, keep those negative vibes away from you. As I said, they’re contagious! I pray you have more positive experiences than negative ones. Whenever you feel yourself becoming negative, please find a way to distance yourself from whatever is causing the negativity. You deserve a positive life.

Have a blessed day!
