I have to be careful of having double standards in my life. On one hand, I worry about toxic people and relationships, but rarely do I ever consider that I may be toxic to someone else.
Relationships don't simply contain good guys and bad guys, they contain good matches and bad matches. Compatibility is a key word here and what makes things more complex is that I am human and a ever changing creature; so the people I may be compatible with today, may not fit me so well tomorrow.
Movement and change is part of life. I am aware that I will lose more people along my journey.
Some of those loses will be a long time coming, others may be instant, and crush my heart into a billion pieces. I know that it wont be easy to deal with , but I know im better off respecting that this can happen, rather than hiding in a bubble of denial. Ive lost a lot of wonderful people in my life, (and not so wonderful) so more loses and gains is yet to come, that's the nature of the world; change is a constant we have to respect.

Well hello there...long time no see huh? I'm a bit embarrassed that I haven't posted a single thing in almost 4 months. I mean really, who does that?!? Apparently me. I can't even come up with a decent excuse for why I've been away so long. It just happened. Life is good ;-) Seems like I have so much to catch you up on but don't really know where to start. If you're a Facebook or Instagramer follow me, you won't need a recap but for the handful of you who don't have Facebook or Instagram I guess I owe you something right? Here goes...

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."- Marianne Williamson
I have not always been an academic achiever as a student. In my earlier years I didn’t have any idea of what I wanted to be. I will also admit that I wasn’t ready for college. I wasn’t ready to accept a responsibility of that magnitude, especially with the stress of my mother’s unpredictable health condition. For me, College was an overtime commitment that I wasn’t prepared to take on.
I woke up one morning with a vision from god and the belief that I could do it. And that’s all it took. I have never immersed myself in anything of this magnitude. I received my Associates of Science Degree in Process Technology this summer and I am so proud of myself!
Having this Process Technology Degree will open a world of possibilities for me career-wise. I plan to attend University of Houston in the fall of 2015 to receive my bachelor’s degree. I learned so much about Process Technology that it inspired me to pursue higher studies in Engineering. . I am so excited about what my future holds with the knowledge I will gain and how I will help my community grow in the future. I will continue to do everything in my power to not only meet my goals but transcend them, as I want to maintain grades that will reflect excellence in me and my course of study.

I.LOVE my HAIR!!!
Okay, Okay I must admit that at first I was a bit taken back and scared of my new look. But once I started receiving positive feed back, I gained so much confidence. It meant a lot to me to see some one smile and say "I Love your hair" (especially the men). Every compliment made me more confident about my decision to go natural. I feel BEAUTIFUL, BOLD & EMPOWERD. All the ways I planned on feeling for the year of 2014. Im now learning how to dress with this look to bring out my features. Speaking of features, I forgot how high my cheek bones are and how almond shaped my eyes where. Its refreshing to see my beauty in a different way................. Here are a few pics of me rocking my TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro).
