Enjoy the little Things

Someone recently replied to one of my Instagram Stories and said “yo ass be everywhere” my reply: “you gotta move around” I thought it was interesting because I honestly don’t think I do enough and I make my backyard look more than what it is because I know how to be a tourist in my hometown especially if people are going to travel to us as a vacation why not live your life well and mean it. That’s all I’m doing I utilize what’s already here I don’t want God to humble me and then I won’t have a choice I rather enjoy it now and then move on to better.

A judge Free Zone The Critics Are Not Allowed

I love to make people feel like they’re in a great environment especially with our “Judgement free zone” mindset a place to make you feel respected and accepted. It’s about you and only you focus on becoming a better you. Your energy level will determine whether a kick-ass workout is for you. I’ll say don’t come if you’re too tired to enjoy the fun. Try 2-3 days a week to reach your ultimate fitness goal. I like to do a cardio walk for 30 mins and work on my Abs. Lord knows I need to tighten and tone my muscles.

The Significance​ of A Rose

Blossom as the Rose 

What are the odds I decided I post about roses during the month of February? It’s no coincidence I also want to ask women why do we expect flowers and roses from a man we are not in a committed relationship with? What does it mean for you to receive flowers from anyone? So pretty much you’re asking for traditional classic red roses because I doubt some men know the meaning of each color rose. Why can’t we buy our own flowers the way we like them instead of putting an expectation on a man who doesn’t even understand our vision. Stop demanding things from ppl you don’t even do for yourself.

For this half of the blog post, I’m here at one of my friend’s house after getting back from a day of shopping. All the Rose pictures are my own I was actually having fun in the grocery store taking them I probably creeped some ppl out by taking random pictures of roses. When the idea popped in my head I had to act on it right away. My friend said if someone gave her flowers it’s more than likely going to be roses but she’s not that big of a fan she’s the sunflower, daisies, lilacs are the best for her.

I chose roses because I think roses have more sentimental value they’re more heartfelt vs random flowers not everyone know that different color roses have their own meaning. it’s like oh flowers to where roses it’s more like “where you going with this” getting a red rose may sometimes mean more than just “I’m thinking of you” a Red Rose symbolizes Love & Romance expressing your love for someone without actually saying I love you but you mean I love you. Take a look at these roses and tell me what you think.

We pulled 4 round tables together for a good conversation Cora asked us to each bring 5 questions and there was at least one question amongst all of us that was gonna make you cry, laugh, learn, rethink, and more you just never know what emotions were about to be spilled on the table. I had fun and can’t wait to do it again.
