Happy 2018

Hello Hello!!

2017 was not too terrible. The good, job transitions, business launches, engagement (Yes engagement, I’m a  fiancee). The not so good, the loss of a friend dear to me to a tragic accident. Outside of the tragedy, it was basically a steady year that flew by extremely fast. I am truly grateful for the newfound insight and wisdom 2017 left me with. However, I am glad for another year and a new beginning.

To cap the year off I got a chance to do one of my favorite things with one of my favorite gal pals. Paint and Sip!!! Yes, who knew that painting your own unique masterpiece could be so therapeutic. If you’ve never taken a paint class you must treat yourself. I have been to several venues who host paint and sip (you get to paint and enjoy a beverage, customarily wine, BYOB). For this outing I visited Pinot’s Palette. I loved the atmosphere and the hosts were awesome as well.

Check out some of the pics from our wonderful paint night experience:

Time is Precious

time

Time is such a precious thing. You can either use time to your greatest advantage or you can waste it. It’s up to you to decide which road you will take when dealing with time. Sometimes we remain fixated on things or people who waste our time.

Not meaning to sound selfish but time is money. You have to be very selective of who and what you allocate your time to. In exchange for your time it is beneficial to gain something positive from the person or thing you give it to. Why would you involve yourself in something draining and invaluable to you? Your time could have been spent gaining something that will promote the betterment of you.

At some point of your life you should realize the downside of committing yourself to less than desirable situations. Why invest your precious time and energy into a dead-end job or relationship. At some point you realize if that job or relationship is for you. Why drag it out when you know it doesn’t satisfy you. The time spent trying to convince or force yourself to feel good about the undesirable situation is the time and energy that could have been used towards something or someone that is truly desirable to you.

Do not sacrifice your time for the sake of pleasing others or for the fear of the what ifs. Of course things happen and you may find yourself in a situation where you wasted a lot of time. The thing with that is when you know better you do better. There is always room to grow but be sure you learn your lesson from wasted time and don’t continue to make the same mistakes repetitively.

Time waits for no one and the time you put out you can never get back so be certain to make the situations you involve yourself in are absolutely worth your time.

Let it Go

growing apart

I know it hurts for you to let go because it’s hurts for me too

But to be honest, lately it’s also been hurting to hold on for me and you

The love is there but the pain, the stress, the complication is getting the best of us

You’re not doing all you can to help save us

This has been an experience, my patience has grown so thick

I remember past situations in my life that I’ve taken the exit door quick

Me staying here waiting for you is cheating me from what I deserve and that’s not what I wanna do

On a positive note I wanna stick it out and have more faith in us but the optimistic gets tired too!!

As a woman I’ve sacrificed what my soul is yearning on your promise to deliver

It’s like I wanna sail along but our boat is stuck in the middle of the river

One ultimate goal in my love life is growing together with someone and not apart

I know all good things don’t come easy but I don’t think it should be this hard

Yes we have great times, our existence is not misery

Right now it’s bigger than that I can’t live in the moment I live for long term growth actually

In other words, I’m positive but I have to look at the big picture

I’m all about improving the grey areas in life that’s actually how we differ

If you’re losing hope on life how can I stay strong and keep the hope for us

I need people around who help strengthen me like I do for them right now that is a must!!!

I know it hurts for us to let go but is it worth staying if we won’t/can’t grow?
