10 Facts About Me

Sending positive energy everyone’s way.

I haven’t been writing much lately, and I miss it. One thing I have always wanted to do was give my readers some insight on who I am. What better way than to give you all some facts about me.

Let’s jump right in.

#1. Not that interesting, but worth noting,  I am the oldest sibling. At times I really hate it, because I’m often put in situations where i have to rescue my siblings. Oftentimes when I give advice, they don’t listen, and then I have to hit them with the “I told you so”. It’s a stressful job but somebody has to do it.

#2. Nobody believes me at first, but I wear a size 11 shoe. Once I convince people that its true, they always say my feet don’t look that big. I mean they are pretty proportionate to the rest of my body, so it doesn’t look strange. Here’s a post I’ve previously written on where I get most of my shoes, 6 Inch.

#3. I am a huge Future fan 🙈. I freakin love that man, he has a song for any mood that I may be in. I’m not sure why so many people dislike him and his music. Not only do I love his music, but he’s easy on the eyes. My friends tell me every time they see a post of his come up in their newsfeeds, they know it’s because I liked it.

I finally had a chance to meet him, and he said he liked my hair 😁

#4. I am constantly changing my hair. I love trying new looks, it’s fun. People assume that people who change their hair a lot have no sense of self, and I completely disagree with that. I know who I am, and I simply like having different hairstyles and colors. 🤷🏾‍♀️

#5. Mental health is a serious issue to me. People very frequently brush mental health off,  and it’s not something to be taken lightly. I am highly upset when I hear people make jokes about the mental health of others. Inner peace is something everyone deserves to have. People should address issues they may have and not let anyone convince them that they’re crazy, making things up, or what have you. Seek the help that you need, you’ll love yourself for that. Your mental wellness is a great part of who you are. #6. ​I’ll probably be a forever student. My mom used to tell me as a teenager, that I’d probably be in school the rest of my life. I thoroughly enjoy school. Presently I have a Bachelors degree in History from the University of Louisiana Monroe (Go Hawks Go), I am currently working on my Masters in Public Administration. Once I finish my masters program, I plan to go to massage therapy school. I also have plans to become a certified doula. I do my best to let others know that you can accomplish any and everything you desire to do in life.

#7. I love to travel. My travels began in undergrad with study abroad. If you or anyone close to you has the opportunity to do so, GO FOR IT! My primary goal is to visit all states 2-3 times with a different adventure in mind every time. I include my children when deciding on what to do on our adventures. They come up with pretty sweet ideas, might I add. I have a Cabo and Korea trip in the works, so stay tuned for that. You should know travel really is not expensive with the right amount of planning.  Our latest adventure was to Lawn and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I encourage everyone to travel, even if its no mare than exploring other cities in the area you live.

#8. I hate taking pictures! I would much rather be the person behind the camera. I find posing for pics extremely awkward. So I guess I could say I don/t like taking pics because I never know what how to pose. It’s not so bad when I have some direction on what to do.

#9. I can very easily unplug form the world. When I feel overwhelmed with life, my phone is the first thing to get the boot. I will put it on do not disturb and spend as much time alone as possible ( it can seem impossible with a 3 and 5 year old).  Hmm, I guess this goes back to number 5. My friends know that once I have figured it all out, I come back to society. Some would say that a Pisces thing. ♓️

Life’s a beach!

The beach is undoubtedly one of my favorite places to be. Next to my home, the beach is my place of peace. I can sit there, and do absolutely nothing. 

The sand between my toes and the sound of the waves crashing, is just refreshing. It’s almost as if the waves wash away all the negativity in my life. 

​​

I once read a post in Huffington Post, I believe, that being outdoors makes you healthier and happier. Certainly after I leave the beach, I feel happier and ready to tackle anything that comes my way. 

The most refreshing part of it all for me, is watching my boys be children. Free. Running, jumping, and falling over in laughter. We can become so consumed with our lives, and never take time away to just be free and enjoy the great outdoors. ​

As much as I would love to capture every moment in a photograph, I know the importance of unplugging, being in the moment, and making memories.

The beach will always be my preferred place in nature. Not sure if that’s because I’m a Pisces and most comfortable in or near water. Nonetheless, the beach is an amazing place to earth and recharge. 

Life’s A Beach-
At the beach, life’s different. 

Time doesn’t move, 

Waves crash the ocean front, 

Kissing my feet. 

Sea glass glistens in the sun, 

The warm air dances around me 

Giving a new start to the world. 

The sand tingles under my feet 

Like being tickled by love. 

Laying on the beach shore, 

Tanning the day away. 

The tans may fade, 

But memories 

Never do. 

-Patricia Polka

As often as possible, spend time outdoors! You’ll thank yourself in the end, your happiness could depend on it. Remember, it’s ok to step away from your routine life.
