L.O.S.E

Sometimes it's hard to put goals into motion. There are a lot of variables out there that contribute to why we have a hard time trying to find motivation or a reason to wake up in the morning.



Sometimes it may feel like you lose out on experiences or things other people may have. Or you see yourself being left out on trips or invites. The first thing you do is blame yourself, or consider yourself a "loser."



Like what is it about YOU? That repels everyone from you. Why do people choose not to text YOU back? Why do family and friends continually ignore you?



When is the last someone checked on you? Like your well-being.



We are a whole, are the quickest to be cliche and tell others, we are always here if they need someone. But then we find we are too emotionally invested in other peoples problems and are tired of them having problems because we face our own.



So we force, that friend, who we said they could count on us for, to seek help elsewhere, whether it be in the likes of a professional, drugs or some other form of "therapy."



Everyone feels like they will lose sometimes. And guess what? It's okay to feel that way.



Sometimes we can't be so reliant on other people all of the time. We have to push ourselves.



To lose oneself can mean that we can become so focused when doing something our sense of self is non-existent. We become so focused on our jobs, or our schooling or our duties, to distract ourselves from facing our feelings or our pain.



I've been gone for a month because I've been losing myself, but you know what I found? I found that if I was going to fixate on my objectives, it was vital that I remembered to Lose myself correctly. (L)love (O)ne (S)elf (E)veryday.  No matter what you are going through, that is essential.



I did a 5k the other day that turned into an 8k by accident(fault on the host). It was so easy to give up. But every mile or so, I saw eye candy pass by that made me want to switch directions and run with them lol. I noticed every time I wanted to stop walking forward, something beautiful and created by Jesus himself, was running towards me and into the opposite direction. I realized that is how life is sometimes. Whenever we are getting closer to our blessing, we start getting tired and frustrated, and then we find a reason to turn back or stop altogether.



The enemy will make you start to feel cold, alone, unloved, and make you isolate yourself even further from those who do love you. So remember, when you start to lose yourself, make sure you L.O.S.E(acronym explained above).



Life is hard, but you are important. Sometimes, people close to you will let you down. No one is perfect, but keep moving forward and being the best that YOU can be. And know that I am HERE through this blog, to motivate you and hopefully speak to you.

The 7 Reasons Why Black People Always Die First In Scary Movies


I believe that we have all watched our fair share of scary movies.

We’ve all seen the opening of a movie, with a woman in the shower. She hears a noise and says, “hello?” And the audience sighs because she gave her location away to the killer. Now imagine a black woman in the shower. She will have her shower cap on and will hear ALL. If she understands anything, it won’t be a hello. It’ll be a goodbye, she will either fight or flight.


Imagine your top ten picks and then try to recall the black character in each those films. Did they die off first? Were they killed towards the beginning or middle of the movie? Yeah, let me clue you in as to why.




We do not play by any of the rules: 
You know those typical ghost stories? Where there is running water, or the doors are slammed or closed behind you while you're brushing your teeth? Yeah, WE don't play that. We would confront it.


"Look here ghost, if you're goin…

Rings of The Lord

I grew up in a household, where Harry Potter was forbidden or anything that resembled "witchcraft." *sigh* True Harry Potter fans know that is not what the movie is like.

Even to this day, my mother cant stand that i watch fantasy movies like that.

We were all gathered around at my house, I cooked pancakes, eggs, bacon etc for my brothers and their wives and my mom and I. We were all watching Lord of the rings together as a family.

My mom took one glance at it, and said is this Harry Potter, we all replied NO. like how dare you get this confused? She said, wait, I know what this is as she sat down. This is The Rings of the Lord. I seen it on Tv the other day.

Mama: Which part of the bible is this from?

Me: Revelations * I side eye my family, as they snicker while they eat*

So she sits down and watches the movies with us thinking this is a Movie about Jesus.


God be with us lol

The way you feel

I remember when I was dating someone, and I sought out the advice of my closest friends. They would tell me I was too "nice", and that I should never give and do all of what I was doing in my relationship. But yet those same people would seek someone who could love them endlessly.

People will always tell you what you are doing wrong, rather than what you are doing right. They will make you feel stupid for being who you are and giving your all. What is so wrong with loving someone on a higher level. Loving someone the same way that you would want to be loved.

You know who you are, and what you can offer. There are people out there who will appreciate you, and even the weirdest parts of you.

Its weird, I have had a few guys get into my inbox on facebook asking for photographs of my foot. One even went so far as to offer me money for poses. I'm so confused on exactly how one would pose with their FEET. Like do I take a picture with the sock half off? Throw up gang signs wit…
