What’s up Ya’ll!

Hope everything is going well….

You know how you start thinking of different things that you’ve been through, through out your life? Well that was me the other day. I mean I always think of the different things I’ve been through. Thing is I just don’t understand how I kept my cool through out so many different times. I remember I was working out at the gym I had a person I thought was a friend. She was with a friend of hers. I said ‘Hi” and they proceeded to walk past me. Next thing you know I feel something wet on my back.

I was pissed but didn’t do anything about it because I was so concerned with others seeing me act out of character. Ask me why, I still don’t know till this day. Or the time I got used repeatedly by the same guy. At the time I thought that was the way it was. He would leave come back, leave come back. And I would be there to receive him every time. It was my warped perception of what I thought love was.

At the time I didn’t know what Love looked like between a man and woman, so I want by the examples around me. The sad part was every example there was always heartache and pain. There was never any couple that was happy more then 50% of the time. There were always problems coming about.

But to make a long story short, I’ve realized there is much that I have to talk about. I thought there was nothing I had to offer. But when I begin to think about it, there’s plenty. My only problem is I don’t let many people into my most intimate circle. It’s hard for me to let others see me in the raw. I’m so used to putting up a vail that many times I put up one on myself.

It wasn’t until I spoke to my potential “Dom” that I realized I don’t let that may people see the person I truly am. He pointed it out to me the other day. I just thought it was crazy he knew me on a way deeper level then most people know me.

It’s something about trust someone sexual that will allow you to bare all your layers. I say that because many of my ex’s know me way better than most of my family and friends. I’ve gotten a little better with opening up, but I still have a ways to go. As I’ve said before I do this because I don’t want to taint the image most people have of me. But when it gets down to the meat and potatoes of who I am; I’m a very complex being. Hell, I’ll still figuring my own self out.

One thing’s for sure, with every blog it helps me take a step in the right direction.

The Unknown

What’s up ya’ll?!

 

Back again with another post. Never know what I’m gonna talk about until I start writing about it. I guess I really just want it to be genuine. I understand other people would say that means I’m unprepared. but I think my realness is a plus never a negative.

The other thing, I don’t like to write a blog unless it’s something I feel strongly about or interested in. For example; recently I started having interest in astrology and numerology. Mind you, I never really cared about that type of stuff before. But for what ever reason it’s peaking my interest now. Well to make a long story short, I found out a lot of interesting things about myself. It was crazy because it was spot on!

I found out things like my Moon Sign, Ascending Sign, Life Path, and I’m still learning about other things like the houses and about Indigos, Star Seeds, Blue Rays and I believe the last one is Crystal Children. I for the most part believe things like these can be real. I just don’t have the solid proof to know it for sure and that is why I’m on the fence about it.

When you dive deep these things start to make sense. The only way I see this as not making sense to someone is if that person believed only in this physical world we can see smell and touch everything. Your consciousness begins to open and except these ideals when you realize there are other things out there you do not know anything about.

Think about this; there is a whole 65% of the world we know nothing about; 65%!!!  For all we know there could be other civilizations out there. There could be millions of species we’ve never  laid eyes on, people or animals with abilities we could never imagine.

This is a strong reason why I tell people to keep an open mind; because things aren’t always the way you think. I hate to be the wierdo, but I believe there are things the government and other officials know of they don’t want the general public to know anything about. So they make sure to give us just enough for us not to question what’s really going on.

That may be another reason why I don’t like the News. I don’t believe half of what they’re saying. I just think they tell you what they want to tell you; and it’s never objective. Many times if you listen carefully you can hear the judgement in they way the story is delivered.

I’ve always heard growing up; “Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.” That statement is very accurate. You have to keep in mind, they really do this!!! People in the Media have been trained on how to flip a story and spin it in the way they want it to be perceived. 

I could keep going but I am going to end it here.

For those of you just a little curious, these are my signs and Life Path.

  • Sun Sign: Virgo
  • Moon Sign: Cancer
  • Ascending Sign: Virgo

Life Path:

Celebs who are on Life Path 5 

  • Stephan Spielberg
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Beyoncé Knowles
  • Angelina Jolie
  • Uma Thurman
  • Sir Isaac Newton
  • Malcom X
  • Tina Turner
  • Michael J. Fox
  • Ryan Gosling
  • Mick Jagger
  • Vincent Van Gogh

Also if you’re interested in learning how to find out your life path number, all you have to do is add your birthday numbers together.

Example: 10/20/1967= 1+0+2+0+1+9+6+7=26 

                                                                     2+6=8

The Life Path # is: 8

Well that is going to be all for today. But I’m going to continue to learn about numerology and astrology because I believe it helps me to figure out the true person I am. Just to add to that, there are people who have known me for years and still don’t really know me because I’m still not sure who I am. I guess you could say I’m on a path of self discovery. One thing’s for sure, I’m gonna have a damn good time getting to know me!

Nice Guys Finish Last

Sometimes or they act like they don't understand and you're the bad guy when you treat them like they treated you all along. It was no big deal while they were doing it (because "that's just how they are" or "they were just trying to make so and so happy"), but you're just mean when give them they same treatment that they have given you the entire time you've known them!

Good Afternoon !

Have you ever just wondered why, “Nice guys finish last”?

That is something I was just speaking about with my Dad. Never understood why the people who treat you wrong get the upmost respect and then those who actually value you get treated like something on the bottom of your shoe.

Just something I’ve always thought  of that never really made any sense to me… That is until I realized we treat those we want approval from with more care than the ones we know we already have their love and approval. It’s like I already know you’re gonna love me regardless, so I don’t have to put to much effort into pleasing you. It’s something many of us do unconsciously. Many of us don’t want to make anyone feel not appreciated, but sometimes you do. It’s a common human flaw.

If you believe this to be true, please make sure to like follow and leave a comment whether you believe it is or isn’t true and Why?

Hi Possibilities! I’m here for it!

Good Morning Everyone!

I’m feeling pretty good today. There are so many things that are right with the world as there are so many things that are wrong with it. It all depends on your perception of the things around you. It’s so easy to see the negative when the positive is staring you straight in the face. I really never understood why that is. For that positive thing to stand out it has to be more positive than the negative is negative; if you understand where I’m coming from.

But other than positives and negatives, today is going to be the last day I’m going to be at my current residence. I have until the end of the month to move but I figured I would give the last week of peace to my roommate. For you who don’t know we started off in a relationship then the act he had been putting on the first couple of years became too much for him and that’s when he started showing his true colors. For a long time I thought I was over reacting when I had feelings of isolation and being smothered by his controlling ways. Then I got conformation from those around me that I was not crazy for thinking and feeling the way I did. They say what I so desperately did not want to admit; that he was controlling and not the right fit for me…..

I was going to say, ” I wish they would have said something sooner” but I understand why they did not; because they knew I wasn’t ready to hear it and as a result of that I would have possibly cut them out of my life. Then that act would have had me deeper entangled into his web of misery and control.

For the longest time I thought he was so controlling and judgmental because he wanted the best for me and because of the love he had toward me. Later I realized it was for his own peace of mind. See; he had been cheated on serval times and as a result he became paranoid and believed I would do the same. So going in I didn’t realize his foundation was tainted by all those past experiences he had with other women. See it didn’t matter how transparent I was through out, because in the end he accused me of cheating anyway.

So inconclusion I just want to say to the women and men in relationships you have to constantly prove your loyalty; you might as well quit while you’re ahead. I may be wrong but once a person comes into any kind of relationship not trusting the other person, people or thing they’ll never learn to let down their guard and let you in. It’s going to take a hard lesson to open their eyes. So don’t waste your time or energy repeatedly proving yourself to that person when you’ve done nothing wrong to begin with.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed this blog. As always I enjoy creating them for you. Please do me the favor of sharing this blog in hopes of helping it to grow. 

On Another note: Come try a soap that caters to you and your skins needs! Try LuLu’s Lavish Lathers a soap that not only cleans but provides your skin with the hydration and moisture it needs to remain or for some of you become smooth and silky to the touch.

As Always

A Bigger Purpose

Good Morning!!!!

Hope everyone is doing well.

I have to say; “I love the excitement opening an online store is giving me!” You never know when you’re going to get a sell, but it’s a lovely surprise when it happens. Yesterday I did my first hundred dollar sale! I’ve sold that much before, but this was the first time I sold that much at once in my shop. I packed that order so fast!

Then I had a friend of mine tell me how much my products have helped her with her skin condition. I initially started making soap because I wanted to increase the health and look of my skin; had no idea that it was going to be some peoples medicine! I looove it though! Love knowing I’m creating something that not only feels good but also helps with skin irritations.

I feel so blessed that my products serve a bigger purpose than just smelling good. I can remember being in my early teens, asking those around me about my skin and how it looked or felt. I’ve always taken pride in that, because I know that your skin is one of the biggest factors of your attractiveness. Without healthy skin you don’t appear as attractive and healthy to others as you could with healthy glowing skin. When your skin is poppin’ so is your confidence and health. Many times you can tell how healthy someone is just by looking at their skin.

Also many of these skin conditions can be rectified through topical applications and herbs. That’s why so many people are extremely pleased with my product; because it not only leaves your skin feeling smooth and smelling amazing, it also gives your skin those nutrients other soaps and detergents fail to.

Hope you enjoyed finding out why I started and why I continue to do what I do. Many will say medicine is the only way to go for a lot of these skin aliments; but I don’t believe that. I believe the earth provides us with everything we need. I’m not saying I’m a 100% naturalist; I’m only saying your medicine is your food.

Try a bar of LuLu’s Lavish Lathers. Your skin will thank you for it!

Control Your Future…

Good Afternoon!!

There are so many things that are changing around me. There are also so many trials I have and am going through. With in the next two to three weeks I have to get my stuff together and prepare to move. The life I’ve grown accustom to will have to be shifted a little, because I’m doing what most entrepreneurs do when they’re trying to get their selves off the ground; moving in with my parent.

You have to be a little uncomfortable during the process. I knew it was gonna be hard work. I can’t say that I would want it any other way. As most know, I never wanted to work for someone else’s company. I would always say that I’m gonna have my own business. Even then I knew I did not like taking orders.

As I got older I started to find myself. It took me a lot longer than most, but I’m happy the process has finally took place. I knew I wanted to provide something to the public, but for the longest time I couldn’t figure out what that was. I new I wanted it to be either smell or for skin.

I thought for a long time about making a perfume. Then I thought who is going to buy this? No one knows me! Then also about the money that would have to go into the process of making it. Then I thought about creating paid webinars. That only came to mind because other bloggers said that is one of the only ways to make money.

One thing’s for certain, I become physically debilitated some days when having to work with others. See I have extremely bad anxiety; I’m always letting my thoughts run away from me. In my case that isn’t a good thing, because I have the tendency to over think and take offence when there’s no reason too.

But now I have finally figured out what type of business I would like to have. As you may have seen, I chose skin care. What I’ve started with are all natural soaps. Since I’ve started using my own soap my skin has become extremely smooth and my skin tone has evened out a whole lot!

Side note: I remember being at work with my pre-k babies and they would always rub my arms. I thought it was weird. I had no idea why they always did that. That wasn’t the only thing, they also loved to smell my skin. As we all know, children do not lie. I later on realized they did this because they liked the way I smelled and because I have extremely smooth skin; and I owe that to my natural artisan soaps.

I have always been obsessed with having smooth, even toned, healthy skin. I think I found my calling. I love what I do. Now the test is getting others to believe in me too.

These blogs are for me, but they’re also for you. I never want to stop motivating you to reach for your dreams. If it’s something you want to do, all you have to do is put in the effort.

Looking for ways to stay healthy through this health scare?

 

Healthy Eating

Image result for vegetarian

There are things you can do to make your immune system stronger. Exercise, and keeping your hands clean have been two main things I’ve been hearing over and over again. But there are other things you could do in this time of stillness. What you should do is take time to read about different herbs, fruits, and veggies that have the ability to potentially save your life.

Image result for herbsSome of us know this, but many of us have not taken the time to realize just how powerful our immune system could be once given the right sustenance. People who are real vegetarians understand they have to do way more then eat healthy some times or most of the time; they have to do it all the time.

To be honest I know living a lifestyle like this is a stretch for a lot of us, myself included. But it is something we should strive for. Just thinking about all the benefits of eating healthy makes me happy and motivated to do better. There are so many things that come with eating better.

Below are some of the benefits I know of first hand.

  • Energy all day long
  • Healthy more stable mental state
  • Weight lose
  • frequent bowel movements
  • Positive emotional state

 

Aside from the things I’ve listed, I’ve also heard eating this way 100% of the time has the ability to cure life threating illness’. I believe this to be true. The only thing about this is so many of us are food addicts that it would be extremely difficult to eat only what has grown from the ground for the rest of our lives. I’m not saying it isn’t possible, I’m only saying it would taking a lot of determination to put down everything manufactured and grow your own food.


Environmental Changes

 

This one is simple in theory, but is not so simple for those of use who do not have the means to have a choice.

A lot of use know that it would be better for the planet if we did away with all unnatural substances like plastic; This is one material that is causing the deterioration of the Earth. Many of us don’t think about it, because we feel like what we’re doing isn’t on a catastrophic level. Just imagine how much damage is being done when there’s over 5 billion people doing the same thing. It’s kind of scary when you think about it.

They say we have a few years before we really start to see the affects of our carelessness. I believe that it’ll start showing its self long before we begin to expect it.

But to avoid that from happening, wouldn’t you like to take a step in the right direction today?

Remember everything you do affects everyone and everything. You are never alone, no matter how much you feel you are. We are all one.

Also if you need soap or a great book to read  I have both. They are listed below
