    Love: Why is it so hard?

    Love: Why is it so hard?

    I have dated since the age of 19. I can say it has not gotten any easier. Does dating/ marriage/ relationships have to be so hard? I am starting to believe the older you get the less likely you mate is out there. I do have hope, but I am starting to feel I just need to marry myself since I am the only one who can deal with me lol. Let me set the scene, you meet someone, whether in person or online with one of their dating app. I will get to how I feel about those in a minute. Anyway, you meet someone, and you go out on a date. Everything is going great until you tell them about what you would want in a relationship. Not saying you want a relationship with the person, but you just tell them person your standards. I feel some men claim they want a woman with standards and have it all together, but truly they may not know how to deal with all that you put out there. They look at you sideways or they “act” like they agree. However, their actions do not show they understand nor agree with your standards. Are we not supposed to have standards? Are we supposed to tell people how to treat us or how with would like to be treated? I put everything on the table and it always backs fires. Every time. Maybe not the first time I speak to someone but eventually I would tell them where I stand on things.

    Fear and the Media....

    Fear and the Media....

    Up late and couldn’t sleep so I decide to write. Note to self don’t drink a latte in the middle of the day. Good thing I don’t have to work for the next two weeks due to a virus called the Corona Virus. This is not about that but about Media and Fear. Fear is false evidence appearing real. Do you feel the Media plays on peoples’ fears? I do and I will tell you why.

    Job Lost This New Year?

    Job Lost This New Year?

    It's a new year…you feel this is your year to be a new you. To do all the things you dream of doing. Well, that’s the way I thought it would go and I still do. You see, my new year started off great until I went back to work. Let’s go back six months. I decided to move to a new state and try something I thought at the time was my dream job…working at a university. I was excited at first, but it went downhill really fast. The job was not what I thought it was supposed to be. The people I work with were not the best people to work with. Lots of backstabbing, gossiping, and doing things that were not even in the job description. I was so disappointed. I left the comfort of my city to move to a place I feel did not like me. It is the job from HELL. But I stayed while looking for others. Twelve interviews and counting. Now let’s go back to the day after New Year day. I am at work and I have my normal meetings I have with my boss. To make a long story short, it did not go well. Now in my younger days, I would be upset, but this time I was very calm about the matter. For me, that shows growth in the area I thought I will never grow in. You see, my goals for this year was not to get a new job (however, that is still on the list), but to improve on my inner character, so when trials happen, I would know how to handle it better. So I want to give you five ways to stay positive while going through trials in life. These tips are helping me through this and I am sure it will help you.

    The Waiting Period

    The Waiting Period

    In the society we live in, to wait for something is like a four-letter word. Why wait when there are ways to rush orders you made, rush food you can make. Remember the days where we had to wait to get on the internet. Dial-up, lol. That was fun. Now, we have everything we may need at our fingertips. For example, if we want our packages in two days, we can upgrade to Amazon Prime to receive our packages earlier. Waiting for things is now the thing of the past. Now, to be honest I am one of those people who has a hard time waiting. I can wait for certain things, such as the right guy, the right car, the right place to live; you get my point. However, there are just somethings I would like right now. I am not saying wanting things now is a bad thing, just saying the older I get the more I understand the point of waiting. I am learning life or God does not work that way. I found that life or God will only give you want you need quickly and the things you want may take some time.

    Ask, Believe, Receive

    Ask, Believe, Receive

    Is there something you really want in life? Is it a new job, house, husband or wife? Or do you want to make more money, or debt-free is the plan for this New Year? Well, what if I told you that you can have what you ask for just by using three simple words? Ask, Believe, and Receive. These three words have power. Some people do well with using these three words and are able to receive what they ask for or better. However, there are some people who have a hard time applying this to their life. I am going to show you exactly what to do to apply it to your life and receive what you ask for, but always remember TIMING plays a huge factor in receive what you ask for.
