Man , it feels GOOD to blog again !! First of all, I want to apologize to you all for the unexpected break that I’ve had to take from blogging. These past few months have been full of so many life transitions for me. Some transitions have been stressful while others have been very exciting! Either way, I count it all joy. I’ve been extremely blessed. I’ve encountered many new life changing opportunities and I’ve also learned A LOT.
However, I am glad to be back in the positive atmosphere of blogging!! I have so much to share with you guys and honestly, even though this was an unexpected break .. it’s turned out to be very beneficial. Because of everything that life’s thrown at me over the past couple of months, I feel like I have soooo much content to share!! 🙂 So that’s a good thing.
To everyone who has still continuously visited my blog, read and commented on my posts during my time of absence – THANK YOU!!! I can’t begin to tell you how much it made my heart smile to see everyone still being so supportive and showing so much love!! Now, if you’ll excuse me .. I have about three months worth of notifications to catch up on and soooooo many people to go and follow back!! I’m excited about getting the chance to finally catch up and explore yall’s blogs since I now have time again to do it!!
I love you guys & I look forward to posting again soon!! Thanks for stopping by. You’re amazing!!

First of all, I want to apologize because I’ve been kind of MIA and inactive with my blog over the past week. If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, you’ll see that I’ve recently just started a new job. After a year of working in an office, I’ve decided to go back into healthcare !! To be specific, I am currently a Certified Nursing Assistant and strongly considering Nursing School. I’ve been offered the opportunity twice in the past to go to Nursing School but I turned them down because I feared failing out and not actually making it through.
Nursing School is tough and you have to really really be committed to it in order to make it to the finish line but for some reason this time around I’m more confident in the fact that I can do it so I believe I’m going to give it a shot !! After starting in healthcare and then taking a break to test the waters of something else, I found that my true passion is helping and taking care of other people. I didn’t fit well in the office but I definitely feel like this part of healthcare is where my calling is at.
As you can see I’m a little excited in this picture! Excuse my eyes though haha this filter has them looking a little creepy!
This week I have completed my first full week on my new job and I have to be honest .. I LOVE IT !! I feel like a natural fit. I guess it’s because I already kind of knew what to expect for the most part. The hardest and most challenging thing for me has been the struggle to get my body back adjusted to this type of work. Oh my gosh !! I really didn’t think it would be this rough. My feet have hurt SO bad everyday from being upon on them for several hours at a time and my back has been very sore from lifting and tugging on the patients to transfer them either into their beds or wheelchairs. Thankfully, my Husband has given me multiple massages and I’m just so grateful for him because if not, I probably would’ve whined about it until he finally gave in. 😂😂
So yeah , this is pretty much why I’ve been MIA on the blog this week! I’ve been very busy with getting adjusted to my new job 💙 I just want to say thank you to everyone who has still taken the time to stop by blog and show me some love !! I look forward to catching up on everything that you guys have been writing about so if you notice me commenting on some of your posts from dayssss ago, I’m just catching up! Love Y’all !! I wish you nothing but good, strong, positive vibes from this side of the world !! xoxo!
First, I want to say THANK YOU to all of my readers and followers!! Without you, reaching this milestone of having over 10,000 views & 500 followers would not have been possible. I literally started this blog on a wing and prayer just hoping that it would be successful and I have to admit, I’m actually kind of surprised to see how far along it’s came!! I give God all the Glory for people who have personally been helped, touched, encouraged or inspired through my blog. 🙌
Even though most of my post are inspired by Pinterest or current circumstances and situations, I try to be spirit led on whatever I choose to write and share on here. Although my main goal is to encourage other people, I often find myself being encouraged in the process!! The whole time I’m steadily trying to build everyone else up, God is building me sometimes without me even realizing it! So again, thank you for your daily love and support. It means more to me than you will ever know!! I will continue to cheer for you guys and support your blogs as much as I can !! Keep writing and inspiring people out there!! 💛💜
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way – Let’s have some fun and make some new friends!!😜 Be sure to leave your blog links and a small description on what kind of blog you run !! 🙂 Afterwards, be sure to scroll through & show some of these other amazing bloggers lots of love!! #BloggersSupportingBloggers
Celebrating the fact that I’ve reached one of my blogging milestones – As of today, I have 200 F O L L O W E R S!! (206 to be exact) Goodness, I am so excited!!

Some of you are interesting, some are very inspiring and then there are some of you who are just downright hilarious! Man, I love me a good laugh!! And it’s funny because every since I’ve started my journey of blogging, I think I spend more time on here reading & writing more than I do on other social media platforms! 🙂 Believe it or not but for me blogosphere is definitely more of a positive atmosphere than Facebook!! Just thought I’d throw that out there. I enjoy feeding myself positivity and I’m blessed to be connected to so many other amazing bloggers that don’t mind sharing it!
