    Taking Stock – March 2019

    I have had a hectic few weeks emotionally, I am definitely feeling better and seeing things much clearer for some reason. I lost my dad about two weeks ago and it has made me realize a lot of things about myself by learning a lot more about his life. And its crazy that he is no longer here and watching…

    Taking Stock — February 2018

      I have decided to make my Taking stock so much sweeter and shorter!   I’ve been able to take everyday as it comes.  Between school and work and other things sometimes I feel like running away from life. Making: Roasted veggies nearly everyday. Mweneni and I decided to go vegetarian for a whole month, I’m on day three and…

    Taking Stock — November

    My  November was joy filled. Had my mom around to help my sister with the new baby and it was pure bliss. It wasn’t perfect — sometimes she asked me to change what I was wearing or was extra OCD about everything but she is my mother and I am more grateful for her sweet soul every day. Also —…

    Taking Stock — July

    July was terribly draining! I hate to start writing with so much negativity. Scratch that. July was filled with plenty of lessons. Very little tears if any at all. I spent majority of it working, sleeping and avoiding failure in other aspects of my life in general. I wrote more in my personal journal than for my blog but I…

    Taking Stock — June

    There was a great chance that this month’s post wasn’t going to happen. For the most part it wasn’t. But I woke up and realized that if I choose to tap out every time things get rough – I’ll never get far in life. Seasons change often. Circumstances too. And the only person you can control is you. You can…

    Taking Stock — May

    May has been absolutely exciting. I’ve spent so much more time thinking this month instead of talking. I realized that when I am in control and hold myself accountable for my life, things definitely seem brighter and clearer!! Less complaining, more gratitude and action!! Drinking: Beer, because its much better than wine. To all the men out there, I finally…
