6 Surprising Things That I’ve Experienced In 2020!!

2020 has been a total shock for some of us and things happened that caught us off guard. Perhaps since the era of the year changed, that was a bomb that landed on our heads. ๐Ÿ˜‚ This pandemic and the longest election ever has made this year one of the strangest years drizzled in what the hell moments lol but I still had an overall good year. The year isn’t over yet though. Here are some of the BIG things that caught me off guard ๐Ÿ˜‚

  1. So my dog howls when I mention the name of his dog buddies. ๐Ÿ• I’ve never heard him howl before! I thought it was only a wild wolf thing. ๐Ÿค” I took him to visit one of his pals from the old neighborhood and he was pleased.
  2. My best friend and I flirt A LOT now โ€ฆnearly a decade later and  BOOM where are all these weird feelings coming from that we don’t understand?โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ’.. lol ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Notโ€ฆhim. phew TOTALLY UNEXPECTANT. We both had to stop each other from flirting yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I needed to go to my safe place and meditate ๐Ÿ˜Š Gosh, him?  lmao ๐Ÿ˜‚ now my heart is beating. phew
  3. I gave up coffee months ago. I know, I don’t see how I did it but consuming coffee so much slacks up your routine. I had to let that habit go because I was totally dependent on it.. ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ (refer to a previous blog discussing this dilemma lol.)
  4. One of my dead plants from the summer started back blooming. I thought it was dead from all that heat this summer..I left it alone for months, but just like Lazarus, it rose from the dead.  ๐Ÿ˜‚  ๐Ÿฅ€๐ŸŒน It’s blooming yellow and I take it as a sign of renewal. I’ll rename it Lazarus lol
  5. I got a blood transfusion over the summer while in the hospital.. bc I’m anemic ๐Ÿง›โ€โ™€๏ธlol wasn’t as creepy as I thoughtโ€ฆit increased my intuition. Maybe I’m a vampire because I do work part time as a psychic and I stay up late and love gloomy weather lol
  6. I finally got a Camaro in January after dreaming of it as a child..Dreams really do come true ๐Ÿ˜. ……………So there you have it. I am thankful that my surprises weren’t anything negative; if they were, it’s best to turn negatives into positives. What were some things that took you by surprise in this ROLLERCOASTER of a year? lol Oh yes and we had a full moon on Halloween, how unpredictable was that? lol

20200816_125851I just finished my 2 miles and I almost wanted to stop, but I kept pushing through to get to the end. I was always told if you want something hard enough you have to put in effort and make it happen. You can’t just sit around and wait for things to happen without kicking and pushing forward.

You must learn to kick through the walls and push away the negative. This concept is applied sometimes in Karate and even with skateboarding. (All thanks to Lupe Fiasco’s hip hop hit Kick Push.) When you see karate you see the martial artists going against the oppentant he pushes him and kicks him, blocking him from trying to win his victory.

In skateboarding, the skateboarders have a technique with their foot where they push to get some good motion and kick to glide through. I find it interesting that we must use the same techniques in life, but mentally. Are you kicking and pushing through all the BS in order to win your victory? Are you gliding through?

Is Your Bae’s Actions Loud Or Muted?

img_0008 I get so many emails from people I do tarot readings for asking me, Why is he doing this?Why is he doing that? Is he still into me? Honestly you don’t need a psychic to answer that question. The proof is right there. If someone is making you question them and you’re not getting clarity then just save yourself time, heal, keep to yourself. and inhale. exhale. move on. Step away.

It may seem hard to do but it’s all you can do for your sanity. If they want you then they will be there when you leave; if not then you have a clear answer. Some answers don’t need verbalism. Words can mean more if action is put behind them.

As an author, I believe actions and words should both go hand in hand. I am not my best at expressing myself with verbal words as I am with written words and my action. ACTIONS ARE IMPORTANT THOUGH! Even if a woman plays hard to get her actions of interest and being flirty is still there.

I think the longest it ever took me to move on from someone was probably 9 months.ย  I remember I wasted time and tears trying to figure them out and questioning myself. I can remember holding back on my dating life because I was still being hopeful for someone who portrayed little action for me. It was torture and pain and time wasted, which is why I think the smartest thing a confused person should do is move on or just take some space.. (before it gets worse and ruins your esteem.)ย  You’re in a confused rut trying to match someone’s actions with their words and it isn’t on the same wave length lol So hopefully you won’t torture yourself and blame yourself.

You deserve the same amount of energy in return as you put out. You will see how much easier it will be. You will find these 2 answers; either they’ll express their actions or they give you words to hang on to..like a puppet’s string..controlling you.

Each day is a new chapter and a new page to write. You’ll never know who you may meet or how better it could be. Don’t hold on to just figuring out. What are the actions saying?

 

 

I’m A Flower Still Waiting To Be Given Flowers…

be83338327115740a5dd7d306d2377bf-2

๐Ÿ’Okay so I can imagine all the weird facial expressions that people would give me when I told them Iโ€™ve never received flowers from a man before. Iโ€™ve had people tell me, โ€œYeah right. You lying!โ€ but honestly Iโ€™m not. sips tea โ˜•๐Ÿ˜‚ By the way, tulips are my favorite flowers. ๐Ÿ˜Š So I guess Iโ€™m just a bit old fashioned, huh? I love nice things, but the little gestures means so much. Receiving a text that says โ€œGood morning baby, good morning queen.โ€ย  is the closest thing to receiving flowers sometimes.

The feeling of importance and being on someoneโ€™s thoughts is just like virtually handing me flowers. I get all giggly and roll around in bed whenever I’d receive a morning text. I can only imagine what it will be like when I am gifted flowers ๐Ÿ˜‚. Sigh. When dating, I never ask a man because I wait to see if he will so I am waiting ๐Ÿ˜‚ (or hinting. Lol)

Not sure if men still think flowers are a sweet gesture because times have changed. I love flowers because I enjoy gardening and growing flowers. Flowers remind me of a beautiful woman thatโ€™s rare to find. They should be cared for and nurtured, theyโ€™re delicate and they attract bees and butterflies (just like women attract men and are pursued.)

The sight and smell of flowers always uplifts my mood and they are so naturally beautiful within and out. Itโ€™s amazing how something created from God can grow from the earth and just be a simple expression to save a relationship at times. Not many women care about flowers as much as I do, Iโ€™m told. I was told that some men donโ€™t believe in giving flowers anymore because they think all women want material things.ย 

ย What I am saying is, while I don’t mind being spoiled, a bouquet of flowers makes me happy. ๐Ÿ˜Š I know I could have just asked guys and had them given to me, but I donโ€™t want to to ask for special moments like that. I want whom ever Iโ€™m with to just surprise me and catch me off guard. I love surprises!! ๐Ÿ˜Š I used to feel like a misfit because so many girls and women have already experienced that moment and here I am at age 34 still awaiting like a 15 year old at a sleepover ; giggling about what her first kiss will be like lol

The good thing about it is that who ever gives me my flowers will be the first, making him someone to stand out than anyone from my past. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Iโ€™ve had guys tell me they would have given me flowers but it was usually the ones I wasnโ€™t interested in lol (topsy turvy, huh?) lol My best friend told me that his girlfriend is 35 and that he was the first to give her flowers. Everyone has their season or flower season. Everyone has their once in a life time moment that happens on itโ€™s own without force.

I remember thinking, how is it that they call me Iโ€™m beautiful but I havenโ€™t received flowers yet? I’d be thinking, ‘Is there something wrong with me?’ Hahaha but no, there is nothing wrong with me and I donโ€™t want any other woman to feel that way either. I see it as God holding off on that moment so the man meant for me will show off. God saves things that are meant to be special for you for the special person and at the special time. Just as when you have to wait until Christmas to open your amazing gifts, it will feel more special. I have a bucket list of things I am still waiting to do that I havenโ€™t experienced yet with a man and I know itโ€™s a sign from God that those moments will be shared with the one I may marry …making it the best!!!!๐Ÿ˜‰

So raise your glasses and make a toast ๐Ÿฅ‚ for knowing that your inexperience is a gift awaiting to be unwrapped. ..

For the moment, see yourself as a flower awaiting to be sniffed by a handsome and rare bee. ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ

To Be Envied Or Inspire..

To be envied or to inspire??..that is the question. I had a girl told me she used to be jealous of me and I was a bit surprised.. Honestly I’d rather inspire people than to be envied. If people are envious then you have no friends and I only have a few…. always wanted a big group of positive girlfriends. I feel if we inspire others then there will be no room for envy because people will be motivated to become their best self. Your energy will light theirs up just from yours being bright.ย  Ever been around certain people that just made you feel an energy boost just from being around them? That’s what you should feel and who you should be around.

If not, be the one to help them feel positive by first working on yourself and becoming your greatest version.

When I’d find out someone felt that way I’d be like “There is no need to be if you knew all the sad things I overcame.” I am thankful I can use that to motivate others. God kept me and I am still here.ย  Be thankful. Smile. Love. Focus on what’s best for you in this life you have. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐ŸŒž Life is too short. Great memories last longer. Make them.

Inhale. Exhale. Just Stop. Just Breathe. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ

This is sooo me!

Yoga was great this morning. One of my favorite things to do. When I do yoga I don’t worry about anything else. It’s my happy place. I always feel like I’m in a spa; especially when I tap in my favorite chakra. Yoga gets me high (naturally lol) and it is just as good as coffee. *sips Starbucks โ˜•

The most important thing to do is to breatheeee. I see each breath as a gift. It’s amazing how we have been breathing since the day we were born and that our heart has been beating non stop since we were in the wombs of our mothers.

It’s ashame that people take life for granted. Today I encourage you to be thankful for air. Be thankful for life. Be thankful to have a mind that you can balance and relax.

Namaste ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ

Be Thankful For The Little Things, Especially Your Family.

It’s the Sunday the week of Thanksgiving and I am listening to my family members laugh and tell jokes. (Although it isn’t Thanksgiving yet, it feels that way with the family atmosphere ๐Ÿ™‚ Every time we are all together it feels like a holiday gathering. ) Sometimes people get annoyed with family or have arguments with family; which is normal, but you should still be thankful you have them with you. I am not saying ALL family members are there for you or good to you, but the ones you have a bond with that you sometimes run into little quarrels with. You should always remember to never take them for granted. Don’t take little arguments and grudges so seriously.

Things that could have been handled can lead to forgiveness and forgiveness leads to recovery. Recovery paves the way to turn over a new page and start over anew. So many people are dying and they never got a chance to end on good terms because of minor problems. When you are thankful for little things (such as hearing the laughter of family in the living room, being able to have senses, being thankful to see how far you’ve come etc) then you’ve mastered power for motivation. When you are thankful, you become motivated and when you become motivated you are able to put a super hero cape on.

I am thankful for life, family, shelter, food and looking back on how far I’ve come. If you are not thankful for what you have, always remember that there are people who probably wish they had the things you care less about. Count your little blessings and be thankful. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hold on to them.

Grab them.
