Time for Self Reflection.

Time, Money, and Air. They all have something in common and is what everybody wants. More Time, More Money, More Air. If you had more time, what would you do? If you had more money, what would you do? And if you know your air supply would never run low and you can live forever, what would you do??? Time for self reflection. #MyTruth, nothing.

Nothing because if I’m unable to accomplish my goals with the time money, and air available to me now, what is a little extra going to do? Well, with a little more time I may not find myself procrastinating. More money….Well you think about that, and with more air I can out live my kids kids kids!!! And see there kids have kids.ย 

So maybe every once in a while, ย  ย 

Allow yourself to โ€ฆโ€ฆโ€ฆโ€ฆSelf Reflect.

So I tell myself what more in this life do you want to accomplish with your Time, Money and the Air you breathe. We all want something. but if you allow TIME MONEY and AIR determine your GOALS, then just like all three will soon decease, you will too. What do you need to self reflect on? #MyTruthย

Back in my zone. #DoU

When you are trying to do you, and your a wife, mother, sister, friend and maybe even a CEO. Shit can get tough. Just about everyone around you needs your attention. Trust me I know. As the older sister, but not the eldest sibling as a female and having nurturing ways, I want to help everyone around me do them, but am I doing me? Mytruth no, and not for a very long time. So I told myself for 2019 I would do things differently.

At least when it comes down to what I want to do for self. This year I plan on travelling to a state or city that I have never been, start a kick boxing class because this is something I always wanted to do, and finally use my birthday gift certificate from 2018 for a full body massage. Just to name a few. Back in my zone is just what it is. Focus on self and do more for self. Don’t get lost in what everyone else needs to do before you check YOU. You only get one life. #MyTruth

You have something in your teeth!

Name a time when you was with someone, your sister or your close friend, and you was eating out, and afterwards you notice something was in their teeth. Do you tell them or let it ride?

Mytruth telling someone something is in there teeth, is just as hard as telling someone some real personal information. you know your truth. But why is that? For me if something is in your teeth, nose, or even on your face it will take me a minute or two before I say something. I don’t know why, but it’s like a feeling of hesitation. I would feel more bad not saying something and someone else mentions it.

That’s how most people should be with there personal truth. Everybody on social media does not need to know everything. Once people see that view of you, unless its for a money bag they automatically judge you. This world is a mean place, and tough skin will get you through, but when you self inflict pain to your self that is even worse.

I know things get hard. To be 33 years old, I have seen a lot for my age growing up. It surely was not a white picket fence, but some things I choose to keep between myself and the ones who know. Of course your story can be a life lesson for someone, but make sure it is at the right place and the right time to disclose. Make sure the message you are trying to spread is somehow going to help the next. That’s what life is to me. I don’t expect the same view for you, but I believe in that each one teach one. Live your life people. #Mytruthย 

You did what? #Changes

Morehead Trip Grandma Mary Funeral 2017 018

How is that when you decide to do something different in your life, and you may have shared the possible change with your mom, dad, or even your closest friend there reaction is not what you was expecting. The response most people give off can be a negative response, and for someone going through a life changing situation that is the last thing they want to hear or see.

 

Mytruth, the only reason most people give off a negative response is because they are deep down jealous or want to make changes in there own life but don’t know where to start, so they will do everything in there power to stop your joy. Yea it can also be that they may not think your choice is a good one, but at any given time someone comes to you with a positive change they feel will come to there life, should be embraced. You should give them some type of positive light, not bring them down. Family is the worst at being negative. Mainly because they are around when your UP and when your DOWN. They saw how it was when you was down, now you have a plan of success, and to them you have to do it there way, and whatever you was thinking is wrong. Can they truly feel what you feel? No! I tell my kids all the time. No one else can live your life. You have to stand tall and alone sometime.

There is always somebody waiting on you to fall. No matter what. At the same time technically we all have to live this way. Even in relationships. When I say relationships that can be your job, relationships with friends and also when conducting business. You have to make sure you have your own back 1st, before you place trust in someone else to have over your energy. Your power. You have to make sure you can handle whatever may be thrown at you. A lot of things believe it or not can break a person.

I make sure that when in any relationship, I try to be there for that person, and cheer them on. I have very few people that I can call a friend, because trust for me is a powerful energy source. When my parents passed in 2010, so many things came out about family, and people my parents called friends. I don’t allow any situation to block me out, or shut me down, but best believe I got all eyes on you :0) I say that with a smile. I keep moving forward. Don’t put energy somewhere that will draw negative energy.

A piece of MyTruth #BeInspired

Sometimes when you put your mind to do something that you really want to do, a part of you always wants to hold you back. Why is that? Mytruth (pause n think) is it more than just fear? Why do the average person put so much pressure on there self? Every day you are faced with new trials, situations. Yet we still get upset by the outcome or how it may turn out if it does not go in our favor. At least the first time around.ย Carowinds Fun 7and8th grade band Chorus Orchestra 025

Stress is a beast, and knows how to destroy if one allows. So why stress out during a certain situation? Only because it is in our human DNA to impress and always look good in the eye of the next. I have to catch myself at times, especially with being a mother.

Sometimes I feel as if I am not doing enough when it comes to my kids. Of course as parents you always want to give your kids more than what you had growing up, so yes parenting is and can be stressful. They are priority #1. So making sure all there needs are met will put a lot of pressure on you. Keep in mind that we are not robots, and we will and I say this as softly as possible (excuse my french) Fuck up some things along the way and that is fine, because we are learning and teaching each other.

Lets go

 

That is what life is all about. Each one teach one. So I try not to stress out (It still happens) but I know that I am human and shit will happen along the way. I just have to suck it up, and move on. Situations will occur, if they don’t, then what are we doing? Why are we living? Even the riches man has issues, but he sure ain’t gonna let that stop the next move. His next step is always a way to make the situation work in his favor. Take a bow and just keep living life. Make choices that will bring a bounty of gold for generations to come. Remember you can control the outcome, with how you put your energy out in the universe. #My Truthย 

My Black IS…Beautiful

While on my come up, I never saw myself to be a beautiful black girl. I did not think MY BLACK was beautiful. Now do not get it twisted,ย  I loved being black, but not so much a dark skinned black girl.

For some reason back in my youngin days, Mytruth I felt as if, if you was not light skinned and or had some hair on your head (couple of inches close to the shoulder) you was not seen. To me your hair is like your crown. Answer this? When you get a fresh hair do, what is the first thing you want to do after your hair is done regardless sometimes what you have on? :0) take a PICTURE.

Me feeling beautiful 003

Now I knew I was a beautiful girl. I just did not understand why I felt as if I was not beautiful with the skin, hair, beauty I was in. Now before you think I was just a bitterย  girl,ย  please continue reading. ย  I do not want you to feel no sadness, just hear Mytruth ๐Ÿ™‚ My dad would take me to his lady friends and or family members to do my hair. I had it all from singles, cornrow like black girl (inside joke, My Von would understand ๐Ÿ˜‰ and of course my favorite, that HOT HOT press out. Hot comb I should say. Until that one day I told my dad I wanted a relaxer. OMG why did I do that to myself. Now the relaxer, wasย  like the suga back in the day.

Everybody was going straight ๐Ÿ™‚ You could find a relaxer like Motions, and or Just for me (in my singing voice, y’all member that song ๐Ÿ™‚ ), in the hair salons, your momma kitchen or living room. That’s when boxed perms was the suga. Well my 1st relaxer was completed in a kitchen. Now me as a little girl assumed she knew what the ham she was doing but ahh no. I was wrong. At some point after she puts the relaxer in my hair, she puts me under a hair dryer. She told me I would sit for 5 min and then she would wash you my hair. It all sounded right. Well long story short it burned most of my hair out my head. No one really knows this story except close family and of course my husband. As I got older I always struggled with my hair. I remember one time while I was in middle school, I put so much grease in my hair, that everyone thought it was a jerry curl. I thank God for my Von. That day she did my hair for the 1st time changed my whole world of hair. I felt gorgeous. She was in hair school that year, so I was lucky to be her hair style tester. Till this day, My Von still does my hair.ย

So look, regardless of complexion, hair, tall, short, dark, light. We have to know we are beautiful. As a little girl growing up in the late 80 into the 90’s, there was no internet, and or cell phones. So with the way this internet generation is set up, we have to love on all our little black girls. Tell them they are beautiful in there natural short kinky curly hair. Dark skinned, Coco brown, Caramel skin. All little girls of all complexions should know there worth and beauty at an early age, so as they age, they age to be beautiful inside and out, and know there worth regardless of how they look. BBB is what my sister, Von and I would end in our text message or phone conversation. Blessed, Black, Beautiful #Mytruthย
