A change of Heart

A change of Heart

Happy Love Day
Though this is a day I never thought I would hear myself saying “I’m starting to like”. I never understood why this day was such a big deal. I felt it was a waste of time,money and fake love. Men and Women acting like they’re so in love with each other ,but at the same time out cheating.
I can go on and on about why I used to didn’t like this day, but I want since I’m starting to like it. You may be wondering why I’ve had a change of heart! Well it’s not because I have a man because I am still single and taking applications. ūüėÄ Sorry Drifted a little!
I never understood why this one day people outwardly express their love for one another. My mom and dad was married for a long time before he passed away and he always showed his love and affection to my mom daily.
However, more and more as I get older and learning about what makes me happy, my kids tend to bring out a side of their mom that sometimes I feel I lost.
I look at my boys seeing them growing into young men and it makes me proud. Well depending on what day it is teens moods can switch up! See it took my 12 year old son actions to make me look at this day differently. A couple of weeks ago as I was shopping for my daughter Vday cards for her class. My son says “Mom I want to buy a girl something; can I?” My reply was “yes go ahead!” “Lol! As he walks away and comes back with a sneaky smile on his face. My son goes to whisper in his sisters ear as we are walking up the aisles of the store.
I stopped and said to my son” I hope you’re not trying to buy that for me” He laughs but by that time my daughter burst out and says “yes mom he is and he told me not to tell you.” I laugh and I immediately told my son take that stuff back though the gesture was sweet and I did say Thank You.
To make a long story short!
I didn’t realize that my actions may have bothered my son until he told a very good friend of mine that I didn’t like this day. After getting yelled at by my friend, I felt bad telling my son to take the stuff back because he was only expressing his love for me.
I was so focused on the title Valentines day instead of looking at the joy and love this day brings that I totally missed what my son was doing. Valentines is not a day just for couples doesn’t its a day to express your love even more to people in your life or that has blessed you along the way. What makes it even more special you’re able to share the love that you have for yourself and share it with others. Whether that be a best friend, child, sister, dad, uncle, brother or mate just know that someone Loves you.
So embrace today with an open heart and mind. Take time out today and show someone in your life you love them and appreciate them.
Happy Love Day! Continue Loving, Living, Alopecia Happy and Free.

I would Rather be_______________”.

ImageI would Rather be “_______________”. If you had to fill in blank in order to complete¬†this sentence what would you rather be?

I got to thinking this morning while I was¬†staring out the window on a cold day in Texas and those exact words came to me. As my mind got to raising with¬†many ideas of what¬†would I rather be my mind came to a complete stop. As a smirk came on my face!¬†I started thinking about the many things that I was blessed with and though on some days my toil doesn’t feel quite like a blessing.¬†Life can become so¬†overwhelming where sometimes we may think about¬†WHAT WE WOULD RATHER BE DOING.

One of my favorite books in the BIBLE or the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth is the book of ECCLESIASTES. I really love¬†a¬†verse from this book¬†that states in NIV “This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink¬†and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor¬†under the sun during the few days of life God has given them‚ÄĒfor this is their lot.” This book always keep me grounded and thankful for my Toil.¬†

It was times in my life where I was not satisfied! I used to Complain and felt Depressed wondering why I am not further than I thought I should be. I had to refocus my thoughts and views on my life and compare it with the things I have been blessed with so far. 

I have a brother in GA that I would chat with almost everyday. I started our chat off¬†complaining work and other things he then yelled the words in caps¬†“How many times I have to tell you it could be worse”. Soon as those words came across the screen I immediately paused. I then replied to my brother in saying¬†“You’re Right”

It could be worse so I would rather push through and find peace with this Toil I’ve been blessed with and enjoy this¬†journey. Just know everyday¬†gets better and each day you will continue to grow and find that place that keeps you smiling. So as of today take time out and observe the positive of your situation because it could be so much worse.

So what would you rather be? Mine would be continue Living, Loving, Laughing, Alopecia Happy and Free.

Bigger is Better

Bigger is Better! Why do I say that you may ask? Living in Texas I’ve heard the saying everyone does it big. So far from what I’ve seen in just the few months living here I must say “Yes in deed” they do.
I know when your mind immediately read the topic of discussion today you assumed I was referencing to sex. I do hate to disappoint you my Alopecia supporters we are going to use the cliche saying “Bigger is Better” in a more enlightening term.

Bigger is Better because sometimes it takes the BIGGER person in any relationship to make things right. For Instance, the bigger person can be in a friendship, marriage, job, kids, family, baby daddy/momma’s relationship where two people have had a disagreement causing a seperation.

Sometimes being the bigger person in life feels like you’re being taken for granted or you’re the loser in a situation. There’s no winners or losers in a friendship are any type of relationship, but there is a compromiser. It’s ok to be the bigger person and Compromise, because I promise you it will all work out in the end ;leaving you feeling stress free.
Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve had a disagreement with someone and as time passed you feel like it wasn’t worth destroying a friendship over.
So if someone ask is bigger better your reply should be Yes” Bigger is better because I have a bigger mindset when it comes to any of my relationship.
Putting aside your own feelings to make things between you and another person more peaceful is ok. Never feel less of a person doing the right thing in order to keep a friendship together. It takes a strong person whether right or wrong to break the ice.

Also please don’t misunderstand what I’m saying, because by far am I saying at all to be the bigger person in an abusive situation. So Like I always say life is short wasting time not speaking to each other is not worth it. Sometimes fighting for those friends or mate who has brought purpose into your life is worth being the bigger person for.
So today think about that relationship that has been broken and be the bigger person.

Moving Forward

Driving into work today I was listening to “moving forward” I love the melody and peacefulness of this song such a motivating song to start your day.¬†

How many times in your life have you felt stuck? Feeling like you are not further than you feel you should be? Let’s be honest! ¬†Even if things didn’t pan out the way you thought it should¬†don’t allow another day being stuck in a rut having a pity party trying to figure out why. Accept where you are in life and evaluate what you have learned from those experiences.¬†Don’t allow yourself to keep going back around that same mountain of defeat.

I’m not saying this because I don’t know how you are feeling, but because I do. Staying in that depressing place is only keeping you away from completing your assignment. It’s not worth to continue allowing life to pass you by.

So Starting today lets start moving forward loving life Alopecia happy and free.

Ocean View

Ocean View

I love this picture looking into the ocean only seeing as far as my eyes will allow me to see. However, my mind knowing there’s so much more to this ocean view. Let’s take this ocean view as your life and how you see it. Stop seeing life as if you’re at your end and there’s nothing else to live for. Just because your eyes only see what’s in front of you know in your heart and mind life has so much more to offer. I am witness of Alopecia having me feeling like I would never know what true happiness,and I mean true happiness where you feel it in your spirit man. So don’t allow this journey of Alopecia to make you feel like you are not worthy of seeing pass what you see. Live, Love and Enjoy life being Alopecia happy and free.
