To all my Fellow Bloggers who participated in Blogmas, WELL DONE!!!! It is not easy coming up with 25 Blog Posts and to be clear I had only planned out some of these posts. For most of them, I was just winging it, and I did not stick to only holiday themed posts. It’s especially hard to meet such a challenge, if you have lots of other things on your plate of life. I almost quit a few days back LOL!! I attempted Blogmas last year and I failed. But this year I completed the challenge, and what an awesome challenge it was! I’m proud of myself and you should be proud of yourself!!! If you took the time out to read my Blog, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I hope you enjoyed my creativity, expressions and thoughts. My hope as with any of my Blog Posts, is that you leave here inspired, motivated, that your thoughts are provoked, and maybe you’re a little hot and bothered LOL! I thoroughly enjoyed this, and now I will be taking a break from this Blog!!

Now, it’s time for me to enjoy Christmas and spend time with my family!❤️

Do you have a Fake Friend in your circle?

We’ve all had a fake friend or two or three. You really have to pay close attention to the company that you keep. Fake friends tend to slip right underneath your nose without detection most of the time. It’s easy to miss because they usually appear and pretend to be something they’re not. They do it so well because they have perfected their fraudulent craft. The million dollar questions are, How can you tell if your friend is fake and is showing you fake love? Well it’s simple kind of.

  • Have they ever given you several backhanded compliments? For example they may say to you, “I love your outfit today. You look so much better with your makeup on.” For the record, there is a difference between telling your friend the truth and being shady. You get my drift!
  • Do they act totally different towards you around other people?
  • Do they treat you differently around other people?
  • Do they constantly try to compete with you?
  • Does it seem as if they judge every single thing that you do?
  • Have they ever betrayed you?
  • Have they ever lied to you?

 

If you’ve answered yes to some or all of these questions, you probably have a “fake friend” in your circle. The thing is, most fake friends are also disloyal, shady, jealous, envious, and they were never really fond of you to begin with. It’s twisted actually which is why you must pay close attention. People will always show you who they are. Though it isn’t always evident right away. But the signs are there. This kind of friend can be dangerous. Jealousy mixed in with envy can equal trouble for you. Make sure you reevaluate your circle of friends and readjust if necessary.

Soul Mate

My eyes latched onto to yours, and I got a glimpse of your soul. Our souls connected and created one. The energy we share is electric. I can feel when your vibe is off and you can feel when my vibe is off. When our minds meet, the dialogue is eclectic. I get lost in your company when we’re together. The outside world doesn’t exist when I’m in your sensual midst. It’s just me and you. When we make love, my soul moans, and becomes detached for a moment. You make me climb into my feelings in unfamiliar places. I don’t recognize this kind of love. My soul yearns for you when we part ways. You’re the one. You’re my only one. My soul mate. 

 

Have you met your Soul mate yet? 

Merry Cookies Part 1

C2884E95-FDB8-4A32-8337-6F1F996FB2AF.jpeg

 

Every year, Merry Nicole cooks the best batch of chocolate chip cookies for the Annual Holiday office party. This year, I just knew it would be no different. Her cookies were quite popular. She could bake her butt off! Merry Nicole didn’t have much of a personality, she was odd, shy, and her wardrobe was hard to stomach. She was always fully covered head to toe. She wore dark colors, glasses, and flat shoes. Her hair was always in a messy bun. She was pretty though. She had naturally beautiful skin, and beautiful dark brown eyes. Her behavior was awkward at times. I mean…there’s always one or two at each workplace lol. But she more than made up for it with those cookies. So, I’m at the party and the place is getting packed. Not too packed because there’s not many of us at all. The party was always held at a small hall which was perfect for us. Merry Nicole is nowhere to be found which is strange because she always shows up extra early to set up her cookie spread. Two hours passed by, and she still hadn’t arrived. The party started at six. It was now eight, and still no sign of her. I asked around to see if anyone had called her. Daren from our Claims Department tried, but she didn’t answer. I decided to have a few glasses of white wine, and started dancing the night away with my other co workers. Things were getting wild! Sharon from our IT Department was on top of one of the tables, doing a mild striptease number lol. What else was new lol? Mike from our Call Center was having a dance off against Jay from Maintenance. Jay was killing it! The strobe lights were going. GOGO music was playing in the background from a stereo. It was a great time!! Everybody was free and enjoying one another. It was the one time we all could let loose. I was about five glasses in and in comes GUESS WHO? The music stopped playing, and I almost didn’t recognize her. It was Merry Nicole. She had on this little black fitted dress with black heels. Her hair was let down and filled with spiral curls. She had these perky c cups, a firm bottom, a very nice body. She was slim thick. I wanted to form words, but I couldn’t. We all were in a state of shock, and couldn’t believe our eyes. I’ve worked with this woman for eight years, and I never really saw her. That night we all saw her. Not only did she come in looking stunning, she was pulling a cart with 2 medium sized containers of cookies piled on! After we finished gawking at her, we all finally conjured up some words. We all greeted her, and told her how beautiful she looked, and how we couldn’t wait to indulge in her delicious cookies. She wasn’t a woman of many words. Needless to say, she didn’t say much. She pulled her cart up to the table, and began to place the cookies on the table, still in the containers of course. When she was finished, we all bum rushed the cookies. Daren, Jay, and Mike bogarted their way to the front which was rude! I expected nothing less from them! They all grabbed a handful each of cookies. Oh and did I mention these fools are the only men in our office, and they are all equally handsome? Yes indeed! So back to the party. Finally, it was my turn to get some cookies, and I couldn’t contain myself. Only there were no chocolate chip cookies left. She made the same cookies faithfully every single year, and they were all gone. However, there were what looked to be sugar cookies left. I asked her what happened to all the chocolate chip cookies, and she said the men took them all. The men AKA the fools aforementioned. I was annoyed mostly because I was a creature of habit. You know how it is when you have your mouth watered, and set for something? Yes that was me. Anyways, I decided to try the sugar cookies even though I preferred the other ones. In all honesty, they were so delicious. They were VERY delicious, actually. I ate about three…four…ok I ate six!! At this point, I was full and everyone was winding on down. Merry Nicole was across the room talking to Jay, Daren, and Mike. I was heading over to be nosey because she didn’t talk much, and I wanted to hear what she was saying. Then, all of a sudden hot flashes came over me, my stomach was turning, and I just didn’t feel well. I needed to go take a bathroom break. I ran down the hallway, and ran into the bathroom. Thank goodness the bathroom was empty. I rushed into the stall, and threw up, and I felt so much better. I collected myself, splashed water all over my face, washed my hands, and took a deep breath. I made my way back to the party. I turned the corner and I saw Jay on the floor. He was…

Dear Young Black Kings,

You should know that you are a threat to society. A strong threat because they fear your mind and its capabilities. If used properly and to it’s highest potential, it can surpass the likes of MLK, Malcolm X, Matthew Henson, Dr. Charles Drew, and other great Kings who came before you. Use your resources wisely, Young King. You should know that using your resources in conjunction with your mind equals an intelligent cocktail, that will prove to be explosive, and they know this. They know that once you discover your power, you can awaken the masses, and they will move to your beat. They will listen to you and rise up, and hang on to your words of wisdom. You will be unstoppable. Young King, the streets have not a care nor an ounce of love for you. You have a target on your back, so you must move different. You must move smart. I love you! We love you! Your daughters need you and your sons need you. Your Queens need you!

 

With Love,

Twenty Four!

We all get the same twenty-four hours a day. The difference is what we choose to do with those hours. Come take this journey with me as I layout my twenty four hours…

45F26F50-DF25-44B0-AA8E-9746CB2B6D7C

MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

5:00 AM-6:15 AM– Around this time, I am just waking up, wiping the crust out of my eyes LOL, and watching the news. I love watching WBFF Fox 45 news (I love me some Patrice and Tom) mostly to see the weather, TRUMP IMPEACHMENT NEWS, and local news. I turn on my phone to scroll through Instagram to see what’s popping, check dms, and respond to comments from my loves. I head on over to my personal, and business emails to check messages and respond. I usually form a list of people that I’d like to reach out to for my Podcast and or my Blog. I send out and respond to about 15-20 emails a day. Yup! This is how I start off my day.

6:15 AM-7:45 AM– I’m up and out of the bed. The entire house is up and out of bed. I gather the kids, and get them moving and ready for school. My kids are older, so they can get their own breakfast, shower, and dress themselves. I just have to make sure everyone is matching LOL, coordination is key. My youngest doesn’t quite get it yet, so I always have to pick out another outfit for him lol. At last, I prepare myself for my regular 9-5 day job and off I go!

7:45 AM-6:30 PM– Now, here it gets SUPER busy. I’m still settling into my new Managerial role at my job which requires more of my time, more effort, more patience, and I don’t mind at all. Moving up is what it’s all about. During my down time, and on my lunch break, I check emails, edit Podcast episodes, conjure up more ideas for episodes, and write for Blogmas. Oh yes…I decided to re enter Blogmas this year. I failed last year, horribly. But I love a great challenge, I love writing, and I don’t quit. For those who don’t know what Blogmas is, it is a creative writing and fun challenge for Bloggers all over. We produce/create 25 BLOG posts starting Dec 1st through Dec 25th. I think initially it was meant to be Holiday/Christmas themed posts. However, you can blog about whatever you want. Personally, I don’t stick to just Holiday themes. I make up my own rules LOL! I’m feisty and spicy.

6:30 PM-9:00 PM– WORK REALLY STARTS NOW! As soon as I get home, I cook dinner for my family. I cook dinner for my family every single day EXCEPT for Fridays and Saturdays. While dinner is on, the kids are doing their homework. Here’s where I put my multitasking abilities into overdrive. I tend to the kids who always need something or they just like to call me because they love the word “Mommy” LOL. Daddy is usually standing right there in the kitchen, but they’ll bypass him to get to me. After tending to them, I like to spend a little time in my SANCTUARY AKA THE BATHROOM LOL. There I can sit in peace and tranquility. Then, I prepare to record my Podcast episodes and edit. First of all, editing is very time consuming! Whenever I’m doing interviews, (FUN FACT) I usually don’t have my questions fully prepared. I wing it a lot of the time because I already know what questions I want to ask. Then, there are those few times where I do prepare, but I end up changing the questions up as I’m conducting the interview. Sometimes, something else pops up in mind, a question I really want to ask. Soon after I’m done recording, I’m thinking about new episodes.

9:00 PM-12:00 MIDNIGHT– YESSSSS!!! -The kids are in bed. I’m just getting around to eating my dinner. I work on my book for about an hour which I hope to release in 2020. I check emails once more, Instagram, and watch a show/movie. This is my ME time and sometimes I might indulge in some grown up activities LOL!

A N D REPEAT THE NEXT DAY!

 

Here’s the thing…I have worked hard all of my life and I will not stop now. Every job I ever had, I went above and beyond. I always do my absolute best and I will not stop now. I have so much that I want to accomplish, so many dreams, and goals. As long as God keeps allowing me to see new days, I will keep working. I want to live and work long enough to see a million dollars. I want to give my kids everything and I want the very best for them. I want a house, I want to create merchandise to sell, and so much more! I want to get fancy Podcast equipment and upgrade my show. I want to do so much! I can and I will. Nobody owes me anything and I will keep grinding. I’ll keep putting in the work. I’m trying to build my own empire from ground zero. Just to keep it real with you all, I get overwhelmed and discouraged at times because I feel it’s not happening fast enough for me. Then, self doubt starts creeping up on me and I question why I’m even doing all of this. I’m not perfect. But, I have to quickly remind myself that I’m a BADASS, CREATIVE, GIFTED, TALENTED, INTELLIGENT QUEEN, AND I GOT THIS! ANNDDD YOU! YES YOU! YOU GOT THIS!!!

You have twenty four hours to make anything happen. How are you going to spend yours?
