Rolling with the punches

Good Morning!!!

It’s Friday!!!! Yayyy!!! We’re finally at the end of the work week!! I’m thankful this week went by a heck of a lot faster than last week.

Today’s topic as you’ve seen is “Rolling with the punches”. I feel like that’s what I’m doing and I’m sure a lot of you are also doing this at the current moment. Many times as I’ve stated before, I don’t believe it’s fair. But then again, life isn’t fair. The only thing you can do is live life the best way you know how.

Over the past few weeks there have been a few people around me who have passed away. I just have to say 2020 has been a f***** up year for a lot of us. I just thank God that my family is doing fine and I still have breath in my body ( a chance to turn my health around).

This past week I was hit with even more negative information about myself. At first it broke me down because I wasn’t sure how I was going to fix this problem. But eventually I came up with a solution.

In other posts you’ve seen that I’ve been talking about my health and the sun. Also mentioning how weak and terrible I felt. I have to say that was my own fault, because I know and have known what I have to do to be healthy. My problem is, I let my feelings guide me when most times I’m supposed to us logic.

I have to say though; I’m not going to like the way I have to eat now. But the great thing about it is….. it’s going to prolong my life, and give me a better quality of it.

At first I didn’t realize how big of a role food plays in the way you think and feel. It even is a factor in how successful you become. That’s crazy! It makes sense, but it’s still crazy. Once I learned that, I started to realize why some children were going through school like it was nothing. The answer is their health habits and a few other factors. Of course you have some kids who are going to excel regardless. But for others health is a very major step.

If you feel differently or agree, I would love to hear about how good or bad health has affected your life. I know it has affected mine.

Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful

Good Morning!!

There was something I was thinking on heavy. That was attractiveness and how much we depend on being attractive. There are so many doors that’ll open for you if you are extremely attractive. At times it can be debilitating  to think that someone can become more known and successful than you because they are what others want to look at or look like.

Beautiful Black Women - Posts | FacebookI say be your own kind of beautiful; it’ll pay off in the end. Eventually people will be looking for something more than how attractive the next person is. If you’re content  or what you’re about is appealing people will gravitate to you, it just takes time.

I’m currently going through this predicament now. I have been going back and forth trying to figure out if I really want to be a YouTuber or just write. The more lucrative decision would be to do both, but lean more on the YouTube side. The only thing about that is; I’m not the kind of woman most would find intriguing. So I’m sure that getting Subs is going to be a struggle. I just have to determine whether I’m ready for it or not.

The struggle is real - Passed out dog | Meme GeneratorDon’t get me wrong, just because I’m not what most would want to look at or look like doesn’t mean I’m not going to take my shot and make something out of my Channel; because I definitely am…. The same should go for you. If you’re someone who wants to do something and hasn’t because you’re afraid people won’t approve because of whatever; think about you and how it’ll make you feel. If it’s going to bring you closer to happiness or make you happy, go for it. Damn everyone else! 

That’s why the higher power a.k.a God made us different, because we all have something  to bring to any and ever situation. So never be afraid or unwilling to show other people what you’re capable of, live your truth. You’ll feel more complete when you do.
