Its a Beautiful Day

The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and the wind? A bit windy but it was just great. People were out and about and smiling. Me and my 2 month old got out for awhile after we dropped his sister off to school. I went to see some family and then a few friends. I sat and had a little chat with them all. I got to see my granny, give her a little breakfast, and help her out around the house a bit. I hardly get to visit her but I was glad I did today. I even sat around her house and watch the Style channel. It was nice to indulge a little cable, ya know? I had a mission the whole day: to get a few dollars to make it through the week because a sista is flat broke... And although I wasn't able to borrow any money, my hubby got upset with me, my tank was low, and all I had was three dollars to my name... I still manged to have an awesome day. I'm smiling through it all. You know why? Because all that physical stuff really doesn't matter. And really that's saying a lot coming from me. Some of us give all that crap so much power over our lives. All that matters is that you're healthy and able to enjoy the day you're in. I'm sure most of this feeling comes from the fact Spring is here and the Sun gives you all these feel good emotions. The skin is happy, the mind is happy. I'm so glad to be into today.

Today was a very pretty day.

Facebook Rehab

Miss me? I know you guys did. Well I missed me-- I haven't updated on my blog in a long time. But I'm going to start again because I have officially broke up with Facebook. Yes, our relationship will be over by the end of today. I've let all my friends know.. I'm sure they won't miss me though. I don't update my status often. I just go around sharing natural hair photos and liking peoples pictures and videos (which seems to be the majority on my feed). Last night I seen a video that someone shared, going in I had no idea what I was about to see. But what I seen sent me into tears. I couldn't believe what I was looking at, though it wasn't the first time. Smh. People do not realize the mark that they are leaving out in the world. I will not be a part of such foolish acts. Anything I put out into the world will have some real thought behind it.
Now as for other social networking sites like Twitter and Instagram they're on the chopping block as well. I may not delete my Twitter as quickly (truthfully I'm addicted) I'm just going to remove A LOT of the people I'm following. Which is much easier since these are basically strangers. Facebook isn't that easy. So I will just delete myself.
So this is goodbye Facebook... I would say I'm going to miss you... but I won't. This should be a speedy recovery for me.

This is the status I left behind:

Like i stated before I'm going to shut my FB page down for a little while (if not forever). I'm just tired of looking at some of the hurtful stuff you people say and share on this site. The fights, the abuse, the hurt kids, the "bitches be like..." photos, all that nonsense. And there's just NO FILTER. It isn't entertaining to me anymore just a bunch of useless and senseless images and text. You people have no limits to the stuff you like and share with the world. You do realize these are the breadcrumbs you are leaving out in society?? Umm. Yeah Im a fault as well which is why Im starting with me. I have a blog and will start updating that more. Visit my page when you get a chance and stop [drop] a comment sometimes...

Projects In The Works

Happy New Year fam! I hope you had a great time bringing in the new year. And if you didn't I'm sure better days are sure to come! "Life is like a box of chocolates...." Lol. Just had to throw that in real quick.

I just wanted to pop in and talk about a few things I'm working on. I'm hoping this post will inspire and also keep me motivated and focused. I know I can get side tracked some times and that's okay you just have to get back into the game and finish out strong!

I'm currently helping out my sister with building a website. She had a wonderful idea and one that gives back so I'm very excited to be helping her out. I'm the computer geek out of the family so as soon as IT know how is needed I'm the one you call. So the idea is she would like to start giving out things like hats and gloves to people that she will see on the street that really need them. It's called Project: Right Now. She wants the site to help get the word out that she is doing this so people can help us out with this mission. My sister always comes to me with some idea or creation that she would like to start up, but this one is by far the most generous one yet. We've bought the domain already. I'm now working on content and design. If you get a chance check it out and leave feedback! Project: Right Now << Let me know what you think!! Remember I just started so have an open mind when leaving suggestions.

Next, I'm getting back into the sewing side of things. I've bought a pattern and some material to start on my daughter's dress. I'm so excited. I've been wanting to start on it since last weekend but she was gone to her Grannys so I couldn't get measurements. I took some of her last night so now all I have to do is start planning and cutting! I really hope it comes out nice. But if it doesn't it's all good. It's all a learning process. So be on the look out. Here's the pattern and fabric I bought:

Wish me luck!!
