Let’s Talk // Being a HATER

As I enter another year of life and we prepare for a new year (2018) I took a step back and began to analyze my life. Is it going how I planned? Did I achieve my goals/dreams? Am I becoming the person I want to be? Am I happy with myself? etc etc. Then, it…

the idea of YOU

Are you who you want to be? Who you imagine yourself to be? Are you living up to your potential? Striving to be the best you can be? Sometimes we get lost in the ideas of being someone else; Forgetting that we were born to be different. What is the Idea of You? Who am…

Let’s Talk // I Strive for BADASSERY

Are ya’ll tired of hearing me speak about the Year of Yes yet? I hope not! So, what is BADASSERY and why am I striving for it? All compliments to Shonda Rhimes, Badassery is: (noun) the practice of knowing one’s own accomplishments and gifts, accepting one’s own accomplishments and gifts and celebrating one’s own accomplishments…

Let’s Talk: Time

Hey Guys!! Are we really half way through May? *Well technically more than half.* Am I the only one who feels like 2017 is zooming by? It honestly feels like so much has happened and frightening to know that more is still to come. Time is a funny subject. “Everything takes time.” “Time waits on…

Let’s Talk: Relationships

Friendships…..Relationships….. Situationships……. I’m in a shipppp guys So besides my ‘Lessons learned from my Exes‘ post I don’t think I’ve ever spoken about relationships on here. Which by the way it doesn’t seem like I learned anything, but also because it’s a touchy/complicated thing for me. However, Let’s talk!

Thursday Thoughts // Behind Closed Doors

Sometimes I feel like I’m living a double life, a lie, pretending to be someone I’m not. But, the crazy thing is I know who I want to be, it’s just different from what/whom people know me to be. I’ve mentioned this previously in my postΒ Who am I?, but it’s becoming quite prevalent in my…

Here & Now

Damn Ali, back again with the discover challenges! Do ya’ll remember when that was a thing? All the “Damn Daniel” remarks etc. Anyways, it’s been awhile since I participated in a Daily Post Discover Challenge; I usually like these challenges because they push you to think about certain topics not just at surface level, but…

Transition

As you get older you go through various transitions. From primary school to high school, high school to college, college to university, and finally university to adult life. Each stage prepares you for the next, or at least that’s the idea. I’m currently at the transition from university life to adult life and I’m barely…

Remember this?

Have you ever wondered how far back in your life you can actually remember? Maybe your 5th birthday? Or just something you did when you were young or how life was? Is it easy for you? Or are you like me, where my first memories I can recall are from high school (age 10 up)….

The Leap

I’ve finally decided to take the leap. This may be the biggest decision of my life, but no turning back now. I’ve been MIA for a bit because I’ve been going through a rough time. Basically I graduated college in December and I’m still unemployed. Yes, I know stuff like that doesn’t happen right away…

Finding Faith

Growing up I was never the most religious person among my group of friends. Probably even the least. When ever a conversation came up with regards to the bible or famous stories or persons involved, I kindly turned the other way. I knew nothing of anything said, or could quote bible verses like the lot…
