Internet had issues this weekend (although I could still catch Wi-Fi on my phone) but I barely come on or stay on. Anyway, my niece and nephew stayed over as usual, I had to show them so many fun things that can be done without the internet and I also wanted to show them how to not feel like they need it all the time because they didn’t know what else to do lol. We painted, walked, played games, told stories and wrote stories, listened to my niece sing songs, I caught up on my spring/summer book reading and we watched SpongeBob lol
If you have kids, try to show them that it’s a difference. If you or your kid can’t live it without it (besides work or school) then it’s an issue. I have always been close to my niece and nephew, I always spend time with them without using the internet, but we had to disconnect to really really connect. They had no Wi-Fi and needed me for more entertainment. Sometimes this is what is needed in today’s society. So many people are wired to their devices and missing out on closer bonding. Our generation didn’t really have such an obsession for the internet, but I don’t want this generation to use it as a crutch at a young age. Show our babies how to have fun in other ways. ❤❤❤ Here is a photo below of my nephew’s amazing art work lol They were bored sick of my internet, but we had the best of time and we escaped to the 80s for the moment.
With Valentine’s Day approaching sometimes Cupid starts to point his arrow at some of the most surprising targets. Some of us will spend this day saying it’s no big deal (bc it isn’t) some of us will enjoy it with a bucket of ice cream and a LMN movie while others will go all out celebrating it with someone we love (rather it be a loving partner, a date, family or our girlfriends) …
Well, after a month of dropping hints, I finally told my best friend of nearly 10 years that I wanted him to be my Valentine and he agreed… Things seem old fashioned and that’s what I like about him. He has always been there for me and this will be my 2nd ever Valentine’s EVER. So I would be more than honored to celebrate it with no one other than one of the closest friends in my life that I trust.. lol
He always gives me and my mom the best advice😊 What’s funny is that we’re born 1 month and 1 day apart..same life path numbers. .twin flames.. lol As soon as he said “sure babe.” I got nervous 😩 not sure why when he’s HIM… He’s been through so many things with me and so I have with him.
Lol kinda wanna change my mind bc I am still in relax mode after my final iron transfusion last week lol So I dont wanna get cute or do much right now 😂
but he says “I’m sure you’re gorgeous, babe”… lol 🤦♀️🥰 Now I can’t back out lol We’ll just enjoy pizza and laugh at things as usual. 😂 Virtual amidst covid perhaps. He’s my best friend and that’s all that matters.
I overheard a woman saying that Godly people can’t envy lol I wanted to remind her the story I remembered from my bible study group days of how a God fearing king named King Saul had such envy for a sheppard boy named David who praised him and admired him..
David did so much to assist him in the palace while admiring…yet King Saul was jealous of him..envied him for being closer to God and tried to kill him lol People can sometimes envy your relationship with God.
I was shocked when I found that out as a teenager..my aunt used to explain that to us. They can have everything in life- lots of money, fancy cars, a happy marriage, a family, an education, talent- and yet STILL envy others…even envy those that are inspired by them. Don’t be blinded.
Remain faithful to doing good on earth and doing the right thing. Your light will shine to God as long as you are focused and balanced with self.
I know I am late, but I finally watched two of the Fifty Shades series (Fifty Shades Freed and Fifty Shades Darker) …..but I ended up going backwards though…I still have to see Part 1. 🤦♀️😂 Backwards binger, no? However, I think I was more into Anastacia’s lip stick she wore so I had to google what kind she was wearing because sis’s lips were POPPING!!! I found out she wore a set from MAC so remind me to get it for my birthday lol
Other than that it was an okay movie bc I love classy professional men with a bit of a wild side to them 😂 The actor that played as Christian didn’t seem as masculine enough to me maybe if he had more facial hair…his features looked so innocent to be the dominant role as Mr. Grey lol
I believe he may have had some mental issues so I will have to view part 1. I think he was drawn to Ana because she didn’t fully give him all of her control unlike those desperate crazy Liah. 😂 She was like “What do you have that I don’t?” 🙄 Ummm for one she had to have had some standards and…great sex and sweet side to her that made Christian so comfortable with her. As for Elena (Kim Bassinger the cougar) she was hating too… lol
So early this morning.. my dog and I just left the park..we didnt stay there long lol..a couple was there…hugging and making up..the guy was skinny and tall with skin as dark as the universe, the girl was short and thick…they argued..she got in the car…dammit…he raised his voice..then said words to make her melt of how he loved coming home to his baby and his girl… Aww they must have been a family..once….I smiled…his effort was truth…I walked around the park (only halfway around.)…respected them..got in my own car..as the autumn wind kissed me…I smiled…didnt want to disturb. .their groove…hoping they reconciled…. wordz….from my sight.. ❤
Ahh facebook…the book that is an open book where people don’t say things to your face. (Insert thumbs up emoji here ____ 👍) During the year 2020, I had a total wake up call of re-evaluating myself.
When I say re-evaluate, I had to sit back and observe. So over the year, I have learned what this creepy website has taught me over the years whilst I reflect. Here are the top 8 lessons I have learned in numerical order
People Put Too Much Of Their Life Out There. Yes, by all means share what you want, it’s a free country but sometimes I’ll see posts where people are giving a whole reality TV series of their life. Every rant, everything about their sex life and everything about everything. I used to be a victim of this as well, but I stopped. I stopped when I realized strangers knew more about me than people that knew me. It can be scary and sometimes dangerous.
HATERS Things that make you go hmmm. This taught me that haters will be on to you like a hawk… old enemies from high school and people who will try to throw shade in your posts or DMs lol NEXT!
DRAMA Of course, when facebook asks what’s on your mind it’s an entrance for trouble. When you share your opinions that others don’t agree with this stirs up a whole lot of chaos hence why I never go that route. Phew. Ever notice if you share some bad news you get more reactions than you do with good news? People who barely interact with you suddenly come out of nowhere. Where you been hiding? 😂
Unfriended For No Reason What’s confusing is that I have had classmates I grew up with, friends and family I thought I were cool with suddenly unfriend me. I didn’t understand why because I never post anything negative etc. I think sometimes people have to unfriend you due to jealousy and that can be sad.
Copycats I admit, I am flattered a lot but there are people that will study you just to take your ideas. Hence, I don’t tell my plans anymore.
They Won’t Hit That Like Button Or Show Support I get a lot of support on my books, blogs and business from strangers than I do from people I know, believe it or not. It’s weird, I’ll get up to 1000 story views, but under 20 likes…makes me wonder if some of the people on my page are really there because they like me or just to get details to talk about me and not to me.
Some Married Men/ Unsingle Men Stay In Your Inbox Yeah, I don’t have to explain this one, but I’m like WHY?!!! 🙅♀️
Just To Brag and Show Off….. When I found out that some people will actually use facebook to brag for an ego boost my eyes widened. I admit, sometimes I share my good news but some good news I like to keep to myself. There are people who use it just to brag for relief and validation. When it gets to that point you have to ask yourself are you depending on others for your happiness?
So there you have it. I don’t use facebook deeply for some of the things I used to. Instagram seems to make it easier with privacy, but Facebook is good for keeping up with some things and sharing the positive aspects of my life.
Use it with caution!!! It’s like the tree of good and evil 😂
