Today’s Topic/Question: Create a Meme And Begin with, “One day I’ll meet a guy/girl. And Ultimately, he’s/she’s going to find out,…and End With…”He’s/She’s STILL Going to Love Me.”
Disclaimer: DO NOT comment on any grammar issues during these 30 days…I don’t grammar check when I write in my physical journal and I won’t do it here. It’s RAW here ok! Thank you.
This one is kinda fun! Confused about what to do…He’s mine:
One Day I’ll Meet a guy. And Ultimately, he’s going to find out, how I eat, how I smell after coming from the gym. How my face looks under makeup. How much I love watching Youtube videos over regular TV. How much I love building things and being creative. How I love Seafood. How I can be clingy at times. How Rita’s makes me really happy. How cranky I get when that time of the month is coming, and how horny I am once it’s here. How I think every picture I take I think you can see my “lazy” eye. He’ll know I need then to take a candid photo here and there for me to post on my Instagram. He’ll understand sometimes I might not be able to be on the phone all day because I am focused on work, and need to focus. How I sometimes like my alone time, even if we are in the same space. How I sometimes just like to be in their presence & not need to talk. How I wake up every morning and meditate and zone out even the sound of their voice. He’s going to know EVERYTHING about me. And you know what? He’s STILL going to love me.
If your BOLD ENOUGH…Now post it in your stories on Instagram and/or Facebook!
I’m not bold enough YET!! But when I am I will…
Day 13 Down!!!
Today’s Topic/Question: What is one thing you want to approve about yourself? Why?
You know the deal!! DO NOT comment on any grammar issues during these 30 days…I don’t grammar check when I write in my physical journal and I won’t do it here. I am keeping everything RAW here! Thank you!
To start, I would like to improve on my financial independence. I’m not awful with money. But I feel like I can always be better at managing my money better. My goal is to have less financial stress. I feel like everytime I reach a certain level of some sort of financial comfort, something in my life just goes in disarray, so my goal is the become financially prepared for the “disarray.”
I like talking to different people & just listening how not only how they spend money, also how they pay bills, how they save, investments they are in. It gives me in sight and just teaches me. Especially when listening to someone who is in a different working class as me. It is quite inspiring and motivates me.
Today’s Topic/Question: What do I need more of in my life?
So going into day one, I am going to write this as if I would my actual private journal. I want this to be as raw as possible. So don’t grammar check me in the comments section! I said I was going to be as open as I can (while still maintaining some sense of privacy, depending on the context of the question). But overall, I am an open book and lucky for you guys it helps that I am single so I really don’t have to worry about protecting a “partner’s” privacy as well.
But today’s question is something I’ve actually thought about over the past 2-3 years in general, which ultimately once I understood what exactly I needed, the answer to this question aided me in ending my previous relationship.
What do I need more in life?
Love, Money, Support, Spontaneity!! (And in that order)
Simple answer right? Oh y’all wanted an explanation? LOL I got you…
Love, So let me be more specific. I have Love in my life, friends, family & you guys! But what I mean by love I mean a romantic love. Now, I have been enjoying being single, but I’ll never sit here and say I don’t enjoy relationships and who I am in them. I also understand if/when that happens for me again, It’ll be the last time I’ll commit. I got one more good relationship in me…After that…Who knows. But I think I’ve reached a place of Self-Love, Self-Worth and spent the last 2 years Self-Reflecting, where I know I am ready for that when the opportunity presence itself again. We are always working on ourselves and meeting new people can show you more of what you want out of life, so I understand that I may not just FALL right into another relationship, but I am open to learning and growing with someone.
Money, I mean does this really need an explanation? More Money TO ME means, one less stressor. And that’s on that. Granted having more money will bring on a different stressor, but I think I’ve out grown the latter, like ok, I get it I know what it like to live paycheck to paycheck, what’s next?
Support, I mean now I have a GREAT support system right now. Thank GOODNESS for my mother! My Nia is spending the next year in St. Croix and that is amazing!! And I am beyond thankful & grateful!! She getting the RED JELLO for real (inside joke amongst my parents!) Support with my business someone who understands what I need to get done and who will push me and encourage me, obviously I can encourage myself, and my friends as well, but it’s nothing like having that one person in your corner cheering you on. Also If I think long term or into the near future, Nia will be back…LOL and as a single mother, sometimes things get so crazy you will definitely lose track of taking care of you. It gets tough and it’s nothing like having that person. I didn’t go through postpartum depression, but I feel like I may have gone through depression in general when she was around 2, being overwhelmed and unhappy. So having an intact support system is not only something I want more of, but I think it is necessary for my mental health in the long run.
Spontaneity, THIS!!! This is just something I crave!! It not something I get often! AT ALL. I think it is just something I need. Not all the time, but just a lot more of. Wether is a random last minute date or a random weekend getaway…JUST LOVE a good surprise and spontaneous behavior at times, especially since I am baby free so it’s more realistic right now!
Now at the end of the day, happiness is not by seeking more, but to learn to enjoy less, so that when you do get more, you appreciate it more. So I’ve learned to just enjoy what I have (right now), but keeping in mind what there is something greater. What is for me will be for me and when it’s my time I’ll just make sure I stay ready so I can accept that!! I am sure my opinion of that statement may change and what I want will change, but for now…Not sure If I answered this correctly, but those are the things that came to mine.
What can you think of that you want more out of life?
DAY ONE DOWN!!!!
