I am all over the place today and my brain hurts. I just finished creating similes, metaphors and alliterations to show that I grasp the concept of vivid imagery. I grasp the damn concept but I don’t like having to pull something out of thin air. I love using them but when I feel the need or desire and not because I am forced to at the drop of a hat. Okay, I had 5 days but still… shit is happening and I am fitting my schoolwork in when I can so, give me a break. Haha. I think I came up with some pretty good ones. All of my classmates went all out. I didn’t feel the need.
I am feeling a bit nervous about tomorrow. I have been keeping some things under wraps and tomorrow I take a big step forward with my photo shoot. I am SO excited! Once I get some pictures then I will share the news, it will make it more real then. It isn’t anything that will blow your socks off but it is something that means a great deal to me. It’s crazy how hard I have worked, I have beaten so many odds, I conquered fears and doubts and now here I am. I am blessed that I will be able to share these moments with the people that mean the most to me.
Man, it was a good day. From having a great conversation with Miah as I drove him to school to a peaceful drive home with good music and a nice chat with God. My day got busy with schoolwork before I had to get ready to pick up my boy and the bestie from school and grab a bite to eat. Those two boys are two peas in a pod and it makes me happy to see them together. My boy has a best friend that truly has his back, I know how important that is and appreciate their friendship.
I came back home and went straight to work on school stuff again and I am finally finished for the night. I am relieved as tomorrow is going to be busy as well. I didn’t have time to sit and watch shows with my Nana today. I kind of missed that. She watched movies while I was in the other room doing work. I did get her whatever she needed but now that the night is winding down and she is already in bed, I am missing that time I have grown used to spending with her. We are binge watching The Good Girls on Netflix and she kept asking if I had time to watch the ladies. I am upset that I couldn’t but I will make sure to get in an episode or two tomorrow before all the crazy begins.
So, have you learned anything from me yet? Do you see that the more I live my life simply, the better it gets? Leave complication and distraction at the door. Misery loves company but, I ain’t it. I am sunshines and rainbows even on my cloudiest day. My heart is full and my intuition has never been more on point. I am doing what has to be done and learning how to do what I want as well. Remembering that when I am truly happy, I am at my best and have more to give to my family. I also know that it is alright to have those days where I am unable to give much if anything to others. Thankfully, I haven’t felt that way in a few days but I take each day as it comes. No expectations, no limitations. I pray for the best and roll with what the day brings me. Who would have thought I’d be this person?
Smile just because eventually, it will be because your life is worth smiling about. Just need a little faith, trust and pixie dust! xo
