To Be Envied Or Inspire..

To be envied or to inspire??..that is the question. I had a girl told me she used to be jealous of me and I was a bit surprised.. Honestly I’d rather inspire people than to be envied. If people are envious then you have no friends and I only have a few…. always wanted a big group of positive girlfriends. I feel if we inspire others then there will be no room for envy because people will be motivated to become their best self. Your energy will light theirs up just from yours being bright.ย  Ever been around certain people that just made you feel an energy boost just from being around them? That’s what you should feel and who you should be around.

If not, be the one to help them feel positive by first working on yourself and becoming your greatest version.

When I’d find out someone felt that way I’d be like “There is no need to be if you knew all the sad things I overcame.” I am thankful I can use that to motivate others. God kept me and I am still here.ย  Be thankful. Smile. Love. Focus on what’s best for you in this life you have. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐ŸŒž Life is too short. Great memories last longer. Make them.

Confessions Of A Coffee Addict.. โ˜•(replacing coffee ..ugghh..the pain)

Ditching my coffee for organic smoothies starting Tuesday. Let’s see if I can do this for 30 days or forever!! *screams like a guitarist from a metal hair band ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.. Although I will miss the roasting smell of coffee brewing in the morningsโ˜• followed by milky cream of hazelnut added. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ I crave just from the thought of it, but it’s a habit I am trying to cut out. ๐Ÿ˜‚
ย ย ย ย ย ย  (Sigh ๐Ÿ˜Œ) The urge for coffee started when an aunt of mine was visiting. See, every morning I’d wake up to the smell of her brewing Maxwell House or Folgers. ๐Ÿคจ The scent tempted me.ย  Curious and confused on why so many Americans take a leap to this stimulant, I tried it. (only to become an addict.) Since I am already a health nut and I workout 5 days a week, my good angel๐Ÿ˜‡ on my right shoulder said, “Why not just replace coffee with healthy smoothies in the morning?” However, my devil angel ๐Ÿ˜ˆon my left shoulder laughed and said, “Girl, you know you need your coffee! You’re an author! Coffee helps with your imagination.”
I rolled my eyes. I sighed. Annoyed.
I feel like it is a healthy mental goal to complete and I’m ready to give it a try.
(A try to start my mornings dry, right?๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚)
Not really! Mind you I will be pouring a refreshing smoothie into my Starbucks mug and savoring the moment. *sticks nose in the air.* Now EXCUSEE me as I add a variety of fruits and veggies for smoothie blends into the cart of my online shopping app. ๐Ÿ˜Š

You Want To Be Loved, But Have No Self Love…

You can tell if a woman loves herself or not based off what she settles for in life. I can tell plenty of stories back from my early 20s and give examples below lol
*I remember when I was 22 yrs old, I took a risk to see my ex bf in D.C with only $10.00 in my pocket…I didn’t think about my safety. So therefore I didn’t love myself bc the only thing I cared about was him over myself. 
*I used to do a guy’s paper in college thinking he’d like me more while my grades slipped.
I used to buy gifts for guys who never bought me anything, but bc I wanted them to like me.
*I would catch buses to visit a boyfriend when my mom would beg me not to go and she was crying. I still went..only for him to leave me by myself in a hotel room. I came home telling my mom she was right.
Don’t give your valuable body to someone who doesn’t deserve how worthy you are. That’s like  giving diamonds to a dollar store.

If you take these type of risks when you are in a relationship..then you are not in love. You are attached and that is different than a connection. You will know the difference later. โค Love yourself and you will be wise enough to know what type of treatment is best and what isn’t. You will see the difference.
