Who do you think you are:

Who am I you ask? I’m an amazing woman. I have flaws and I’m not perfect. My mouth can be slick sometimes. But please don’t take it personal. My goofy and I love to laugh. I can have an attitude but that’s life. But I’m loyal to a fault. I’m the friend who will stick by you until you cross the line. I love my family and life. So that’s who I am. Don’t ever stop being you and loving you. So when people say who do you think you are. Let them know.

About yesterday:

Yesterday was pretty amazing. It was my husband birthday. I can’t thank him enough for his love and commitment to me. How do you thank and celebrate someone who has been there for you? I love birthdays and celebrating with others. It’s amazing how many birthdays I have celebrated with him. And every year it gets better. I have seen social media post that bash men. I have seen women getting spoiled by men but not doing the same in return. I’m going to celebrate my husband and spoil him every birthday and every day. If you have someone amazing and if you knew our story then you know that this love is solid. So ladies please go out of your way to spoil and love on your man. We need men to know how important they are in our lives. We can celebrate them without it being there birthday. But let’s celebrate them more. They spoil us so let’s do the same.

Taking me back:

I have never felt like I should concentrate solely on myself because I felt like that was selfish. But let me tell you it’s not selfish at all. And maybe I should get more selfish with myself honestly. But I’m learning to love the hell out of myself. I feel like I have more pep in my step. This girl is beautiful, bold, and full of life. I haven’t felt this way since I was a junior in high school. It took me a long time to get here and I refuse to go back. I’m not about to let anyone take me back to doubting myself ever again. So world watch out this lady is making moves and holding her head high. I have dreams and goals that I’m wanting to accomplish. I have been everything to everyone else but myself and now it’s my turn. Love yourself and never let anyone take that away from you. You are worth more than you think.

Husband Appreciation Day

Today is husband appreciation day. Well I don’t need a day to appreciate my husband. I appreciate him everyday. My husband is my protector, my best friend, my secret keeper and so much more. Wives I know that marriage can get rough and we may feel like it’s all about us. But take a minute and think about all the things you’re husband deals with daily. They do things for us that are seen and unseen. My husband doesn’t ask for much but if I could I would give him the world and more. So ladies let’s take more time out to truly appreciate the men in your lives.

As I’m sitting here listening to the rain and drinking my coffee. I have to admit how thankful I am. So many times I take things and people for granted. No matter what goes on in my day I want people to know that I appreciate them. Last weekend is no different. My husband took off Friday and we hung out all day. He could have done the things that he needed to do but he made the day about us-me. It felt nice to be able to do some of the things that I enjoy. But I do admit I don’t always say thank you enough. I don’t always say sorry enough. And most important I don’t always listen to hear what he has to say. I hear but if it’s something that I don’t like my attitude kicks back in. But I’m working on that. We all need to hear how we can do better and be better without getting our feelings hurt. He doesn’t say things to hurt me but I take it that way. I’m a firm believer in it’s not what you say but how you say it. But when it’s done in love I should receive it in love. I’m working on being more thankful to those around me and those who are not. So let me just say I’m thankful to have you reading my blog and going on this journey called life with me. You all are amazing and make what I do more meaningful. Thank you for just being you. Have a great day.

Challenge:

I believe it was two weeks ago I read a blog post that someone had written and it blew me away. This guy wrote about unrealistic expectations in his marriage. And the points that he made were amazing. But one of the main points that he made that stuck with me was that when you have high expectations there is no way that someone could reach these goals. I had to think if my expectations of my husband were too high? But he also pointed out that how often do you need these expectations met? How much or too little is enough? It had me thinking maybe I’m putting undue pressure on my husband. But the guy of the blog wrote that when his wife had no expectations of her husband how their marriage grew and how the things that she needed from him were meet more often. Okay, I’m like how is that possible because if he wasn’t doing it then what changes? So I made a challenge for myself to have no expectations of my husband and see how that will work. Well, let me tell you that since I’ve been doing this challenge how things have changed. And they have changed for the better. Since I have no expectations I’m not easily offended if something doesn’t get done. But the crazy part is that he is doing the things that I need and more. Why is that you ask? I’m not sure, to be honest. I told him about this last week and he was like really. I can’t explain it but if you don’t put pressure on yourself or your spouse it’s easier to relax and just enjoy one another. Crazy I know but it works.

Just wanted you to know:

I’ve read blogs where people have expressed feeling alone. They have said that no one cares about them. But I want you all to know that I care about you. You’re blogs have made a difference in my life. We are in strange times and I know some of you are use to begin around people and always going out on the weekends. I know this is hard but just know you will get through this. You are cared about. If you feel alone reach out to someone. Your not alone we are all struggling. People do care about you. You will make it through.
