Twenty Fine.

Have you even just looked up and BOOM you're a whole year older?  That's what happened to me last Friday.  I am now 25 years of age.  Which is weird because I remember the time when I thought 25 was old...now here I am. There are certain things that I've always considered myself not old… Continue reading Twenty Fine.

Got Balance?

Balance. I never understood the importance of this word, until I lost it.  Around July 2017, I lost my balance and in October of 2017, I totally gave up on trying to get it back.  How did I get thrown off balance?  There were a lot of moving parts.  I moved, I started school, I… Continue reading Got Balance?

What is food to you?

Recently, I have been evaluating my relationship with food and exactly what it means to me.  For most of my life, I've had a very unhealthy relationship with food.  It was a coping mechanism.  I would eat to celebrate something, eat when I'm bored, eat when I'm actually hungry (and even when I'm not), eat… Continue reading What is food to you?

Hello, Again.

Its been awhile.  I've been absent for almost 2 months (a long time, I know).  But I've been busy!

Beware of the Pitty Pit

Don't fall into the pit.  What is the pit?  You know that place your mind goes when you're in a negative mood or in a funk?  You know when something goes wrong then you feel like everything else during the day will be terrible?  That's the pit.  Don't fall into the pit. I am notorious… Continue reading Beware of the Pitty Pit

A Lesson from my Brother

  We are human.  We have human experiences.  We experience heartache.  Sometimes we don’t reach our goals exactly when we want them.  Sometimes, we have to adjust our goals because they end up not being what we want.  We stumble. We fall. This past weekend, my family and I went to Nashville to watch my… Continue reading A Lesson from my Brother

Honestly, I want a family.  I want a wonderful, intelligent, caring, funny, and handsome man of God.  I want… Continue reading Insert clever relationship title…

Peace and Happiness.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know I'm almost 2 months too late.  I've been slacking, but I'm here and that;s what counts...right?  Anyway, I was taking some time to reflect on my previous year and actually write down lessons that I've learned in 2016.  I can honestly say that I have learned so much, and one… Continue reading Peace and Happiness.

Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice

NEW RECIPE ALERT! I LOVE Chinese and Japanese food.  So when I had to give up rice, lets just say I had a big problem.  I've been looking for alternatives for my addiction and I feel like I'm finally having a breakthrough.  First, I tried the quinoa and it was okay, but it tasted funny.  Cauliflower tastes… Continue reading Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice

Body Shaming?

Lately, I've seen multiple IG posts, Facebook posts, and random blog posts about body shaming.  However, once I started reading these articles, I discovered that they weren't what I thought they were.  I've always been used to smaller girls/guys making fun of me because I was bigger.  So when I thought of body shaming, I… Continue reading Body Shaming?
