Adulting: Jesus Take The Wheel


I'm more spiritual, but I do pray. I pray often, and life continues to keep me humble. I know it seems cliche and dated, but sometimes you really have to let go and let God. Or give it to any Spirit, or even Mother Nature. Adulting can be hard, and we're not always going to get it right. For some reason in my 30's it seems there is some imaginary boundary that floats around me, screaming at me not to screw things up. There is some imaginary code that says our margin of error has diminished into almost nothing. Remember when there was less consequences when you were in your 20's? You could mess up big time, but you could always bounce back. The best part? You could almost bounce back at your own pace. Now? It feels like if I realize the screw up, I need to fix it right then and there, or even sometimes catch it before it even happens.

You really do have to make silent moves, or those around will mess everything up. Even family. Even close family. With the news I have, I should be happy. I am happy, but I am also filled with so much dread. I'm both anxious and excited, but I don't want to make the wrong decision. I have looked to BOTH of my parents for guidance, and it's been crickets. I'm all alone in this new beginning chapter. But that's OK, because I got this.

You may be going through it, might even feel like there is no end to the suffering. There is. It's coming. You just have to remain steadfast and keep pushing. Everything is but a season.

It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
