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.

Parental Controls

I have a 64-year-old mother who isn't tech savvy. Surprise Surprise.

 I really wish that they could simplify technology for the older folks out there. The remote control is way too advanced for them. 79 different buttons for them to try and read and then they call you multiple times while you're at work trying to figure out how to "turn the damn tv on."

So I pitched an Idea to a cable company on how they should simplify the guide for our older generation so they could no longer be weary and have some type of independence when it was time for them to find "Family Feud."


Whenever my mother learns technology, she gets super excited. My dad used to be the same way. Once you taught them something over a hundred times, they would finally remember how to do it. And as long as you wrote it down, highlighted it and circled it six times they could never really forget how to do the steps on their own. Then you would save it in your notes, where you put that notebook b…

Dicks Sporting Goods

Cycling is a great way to get into shape. Whether it is indoor or outdoor, it is a fantastic way to know right off the bat, that your fat ass shouldn't have had Olive Garden's unlimited Pasta bowl the day before.

A friend of mine suggested that we cycle together a few days out of the week. I was all for it because I needed a gym partner that could hold me accountable and make sure I was showing up to the classes. I was super excited and decided to go to Dicks Sporting Goods to shop around and get some of the clothing I would need for the class. They recommend moisture-wicking clothing or cycling clothes.

I made my way to the cycling section and noticed that they had cycling shoes for sale along with their bike shorts. I quickly found my size, and something told me to just go ahead and try them on before I made that purchase. Bike shorts are an excellent choice for cycling because they have a cushion in the crotch area made to sit on top of the bike. Unfortunately, when I put t…
