I have been terrible over the last few weeks with maintaining my blog. I am back and I truly apologize to everyone who has been following up with me. Today is such a beautiful day and with some time on my hands, I’d like to catch up with you all. I hope everyone’s well and keeping their promises to themselves. Well, where shall I begin?
Overall, I’ve been doing exceptionally well despite the economy and the continuous search for a church home. Over the last few weeks I have been networking and putting more thought into things that interest and stimulate me. I say stimulate because stimulation makes you well rounded. Back in April and now May, God connected me with great people who have similar views as me. I met a journalist/artist and young lady from Belgium who were so kind and dear to me. Because of this connection, my music is now in rotation in Belgium and I have new friends there! Culture is beautiful! There were so many things to discuss and so many places to go! We went to many venues, specifically geared towards music and arts. I’ll never forget this experience as it has expanded my appreciation and knowledge of staying open-minded.
Modeling school is cool, but I missed a couple of classes and gotta get back into the flow as graduation nears. I was granted an opportunity to become a fit model for an agency, but the clothes were too big for me. However, I mentioned this because it encouraged to know if I want to be someone, I must go out there and let my spirit/talent shine. One vow I am really bad on ( sad face) is the gym commitment. It is so hard to stay motivated especially when you are so busy!! I’ve found a new love though: WALKING…Just put on the DARK shades, the mp3 player and I am off to an adventure.
Speaking of walking, I had a dog for 2 1/2 weeks but had to give him back to his previous owner. He is a Jack Russell and is almost 6 years old. He was alot to handle. He was a good dog, but had a lot of underlying issues. It would be hard for me to train him and he’s never been trained before. He was very needy and I didn’t find it fair to him that I wouldn’t be home at times. He needs to be in a home where someone is available and has plenty of space to run around. THEY ARE NOT CITY DOGS, and it’s cruel to try to force that particular breed to live in such closed quarters. Evidently my heart goes out to him. I hope his next home is a loving and nurturing one as he has quite a spunky personality.
I am thinking about moving around for a little ( different state/possible new country)…That’s just how I feel. There’s so much to see out there and I am excited to experience that.
I thank God for a clear mind, a non-bitter heart and a fascination/desire to reach out to others. If you know there’s a talent you have, grow it!!!
Well, time is running out before my fun-filled free time moments are over. I must say over the last 7 months, I’ve had the best time of my life. I got to go anywhere at anytime I wanted to. Now it is time to get back on track. I am excited about Modeling School next week. Today makes exactly 7 days left until I start. I will also post updates regarding my experience as an aspiring plus-sized model during the next 11 weeks. My mother put this idea in my head, and she continues to support my music and modeling. She didn’t make it to my second fashion show, but there are some to come this year. As for my music: I have not given it up nor will I give it up. I will be performing sometime next month ( April) . My music is copy-written, I am registered with ASCAP, and my music is in radio rotation. Now it’s time to cover the challenging parts. I didn’t go to the gym today. I am dancing and working out indoors. I’ve been feeling great about my project and am excited to hear how your journey is going. It may be longer than mine or maybe simpler than mine, but I’d like to still hear your feedback, future plans, etc.
Proverbs 1 ( entire chapter)
Pay very close attention to the verses in this chapter. They are very powerful and moving. This is my guide for the rest of week
This is a major thing for me that I don’t mind going public about: I am wearing natural hairstyles now.
What does this mean? It means no more fake attachments. It’s just me and my sexy hair. To some it may seem to be a small deal, but for someone like me who’s been ADDICTED to specifically PONYTAILS, this is by far a BIG DEAL. For the last 4 1/2 weeks, I’ve worn my hair out. I’ve learned to embrace what I have because I should be grateful that I have a head full of thick hair. It is healthy and has grown so lovely thus far. This is actually included in the second half of my vows. Yayy! By the way, everyone seems to embrace it as much as I do.
Saying to live by:
You cannot change the past, but you can change the way you think.
Certainly there are times when the environment and outside influences are to blame, but do not let it get it to you. Even if they did, do not use them as an excuse.
SHOCK OF THE DAY: For the first time in my life: Mommy and I are going to a party. TOGETHER! ( Those of you who know me and her well, I am sure ya’ll are picking up your jaws from the keyboard. This is a BIG DEAL.
