I Need Another Vacation 😫

Man this has been a great 8 days, but I need another week😂 I just don’t feel like getting up this Monday morning. Days of drinking, eating, sleeping like we want, was pure heaven. I haven’t had that much fun in a long time and I’m so grateful for my hubby for making it possible. Now…🙄 I’m struggling today to get moving, not to mention it’s cold outside 😬 So bloggers have great new week, chat soon!!!

30 Days of Gratitude Day: 9-13

Wow I’ve been a busy little bee 🐝 these past couple of days. I’m waking up on this Monday morning feeling so thankful and blessed. All I can do is cry, cry tears of joy! Life last year this time and before, was dark, blue, and cloudy. I had no where to turn, suicide was constantly on my mind, I just felt life gave up on me. I was in a bad place in my mind and soul. My body was hurting, could barely move out the bed. Constant anxiety attacks, hair falling out, and I didn’t care to eat. I hated myself, my life, and God. I couldn’t believe he was allowing this to happen to be me. But God…and only God can change things.🙌🏾 Today I’m thankful for those struggles and past hurts! I’m thankful for friends that continually support through my ups and downs. I can’t express to you all how incredibly thankful I am..hope this Monday finds you all well. Chat soon…

Monday Just Wouldn’t let Me be Great….😩

 Well Monday was not having it…I spent half the day in bed, because I apparently had some virus. Puking and pooping was not cute this Monday, I feel like 💩🤕! After an amazing weekend, but then Monday comes and ruin it!!!! I went dress shopping and found the ‘perfect’ dress for my fashion show, and hubby was a big help. We had an awesome lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon cuddling. It’s been a long time since we did that! ❤️ Then today….😩it’s ok, I’m going to try and get up and salvage the rest of this Monday. The weather is nice and cold outside, which makes me feel so good. I was ready for it to get cold. Hope Monday was better to you all….chat soon!

Let’s See What Monday and the Week Brings!🤔

Happy Monday…man it really comes fast doesn’t it? I guess a lot of you all are off today and kids out of school. I hate leaving my house on Monday’s 😒but have to take dad out and got a therapy appointment today. I’m kind of excited to see her, need to get some things off my chest. I have to tell her about the news of my son, I will discuss this without crying. Anywho, I’m cleaning houses all this week so that gets me out the house, plus I’m making some money. Also I’m going to be releasing my new website and my new Self Improvement Ebook. I’ve been procrastinating and being lazy, got all this material just lying around on my computer. So I’m getting my butt motivated so I can make some cash for the holidays, plus it makes me feel good when I help others. Well off to get this Monday started! Wishing you all a great week….chat soon!

What Else Can You Go!

This morning I was all set to give you all a long story and recap of my weekend, but to wake up to another heartbreaking news story just took over my mind. What is going on in this world? How can these attacks keep happening? I feel so sorry for everyone who had to endure this horrific event. Soon there isn’t going to be any place we can go. How do you have so much hatred in your heart, to afflict so much pain on others you don’t even know. I pray God comforts those who are grieving their love ones today. We have to find a way to heal our nation. This saddens me to my core, but not going to dwell too much on it. I know God will comfort us all. Chat soon….

A week in Review and a Lesson Learned for this Monday!

Good morning all, it’s been a couple of days since I posted. Last week started off super, than by Wednesday I was in complete meltdown. (also was out of meds) Things were being thrown at me from left to right, and I just didn’t have the strength to fight back. I was weak and I let life totally get the best of me last week, I’m still in place in my life that makes me sick. I cried, laid in the bed, didn’t fix my hair, and of course I avoided everyone. I even called my therapist and informed her that I was no longer going to be seeing her. Yes, it got that damn bad! I was sick to my stomach, and didn’t eat anything at all. Little did I know two days without my meds was not a good thing. No one informed me of the side effects that came along with not taking them. So the last part of the week was complete HOT MESS! I didn’t get anything done as usual, all I did was keep asking God to take this illness away from me. I forgot every coping skill I learned in therapy, I was just a damn mess. Then it hit me on Saturday, that I needed to ‘man up’, I needed to get out of bed and stop letting depression win all the time. Every time things don’t go the way I have plan, I crawl back into my shell and stay stuck there. I looked around my office and saw all the progress I have made, and decided that I have to fucking do better. I mean I have my second e-book sitting here ready for publish and I haven’t even released it yet. I have a new life certificate that I earned last week, new items in my store and my grand baby is turning three months old tomorrow. See, there are so many good things I have going on. I just can’t for the life me get my shit together! Oh well I wasted a whole 4 days being depressed, and withdrawn, accomplishing not one damn thing. I’m so mad I could scream. I feel like the world isn’t going to be waiting much longer for me to come around. Lately I’ve been so afraid to step out of my shell, I mean my anxiety is at an all time high right now. I that someone out there can relate to what I’m going through, but please don’t get stuck. Being stuck isn’t fun and it is crippling me. I just feel so helpless sometimes, and very embarrassed by this. Here I am a 40-year-old granny, who can’t get her shit together. This also bothers me, than back in my shell I go. LIfe shouldn’t be this hard, hell it probably isn’t, I just over think the whole damn thing. Well you live and learn, so I better get my ass up and get to adulting. Have a great week, and don’t get stuck. Chat soon…..

Monday Ended Well😊👍🏽

Super happy this Monday ended well, I remember dreading Monday’s and couldn’t get out of bed. I have been really busy on all my new projects, so that keeps my mind from drifting off. I’m so proud of how far I have come, I still have a ways to go, but glad I’m heading on the right track. I’m going to bed tonight happy and satisfied with my accomplishments. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’ll get there. Before I go, I read today that a local police officer committed suicide in his patrol car with his service weapon today. For some reason this hit me really hard, although I didn’t know the officer I just felt it was so close to home. With that being said, people suicide is real and it can happen to the best of us. I’m not sure what this young man was going through, but I know how those thoughts can over power your brain. My prayers are with his family and all families that are grieving over their love ones tonight. Wishing you all a good night..chat soon!!

New week…New..goals!!😊

Happy Monday…😊can you believe I’m up and happy about it being Monday. Remember a few months ago I dreaded this day, but not anymore. I can no longer let one day ruin my life or week. Don’t have much plan for the week, got some houses to clean which means extra cash in my pocket! 🤑I also see by therapist this week, I’m starting to like going and the Meds really seem to be working. Therapy has really been helpful thus far. The weather is going to be really hot, so I have to be careful out there in the heat. Well I’m going to drag my butt out of bed and make today happen. Hoping you all have the best Monday….chat soon!💕
