Being Barely Sane

In the past two weeks, I found myself revamping major areas of my life. I noticed myself doing the same unproductive thing on my down time after work. Going home and shutting my mind off by watching Netflix. I was watching A Different World and I just finished the Scandal series (5 years later) ha! So, I transitioned to Being Mary Jane. I’m a couple episodes in and I find myself resonating with her a lot. I started putting sticky notes of positive affirmations all over my house and keeping myself accountable to reflecting on a daily/nightly basis in my journal. Overall, I realized how discontent I was with my free time.

Enjoy Yourself & Try Something New

Yesterday, I spoke about Singlehood and wanted to continue with that thought. I stressed about how being single shouldn’t be contrasted against anyone else. It should be about you. How do you start to enjoy the time to yourself? How do you find yourself? Were you ever really lost?

I have been struggling with my relationship with God recently. It’s been developing and growing by leaps and bounds, but there is always a part of you that wants things to stay the same and remain comfortable.

I wanted to share my fasting method, schedule, reasoning, routine, and lessons so far from this new habit of mine.  Continue reading “My Spiritual Fast”

Reaping Benefits: Continuing Motivation

Humans are inherently lazy. We like things to be easy. You can see this in how much technology has evolved to allow us to work as little as possible for things that used to be so much harder to come by. Why go to the theatre when we have Netflix? Why go to the store, when Amazon will have a drone drop it at your doorstep. We even want it to be easy when we are talking about our health. Pills, knives, and needles have taken over hard work. Where’s the easy button when we need it? Continue reading “Reaping Benefits: Continuing Motivation”
