2015 - Where's the Reset Button!




OMG...If you 'follow' my blog then you know that I have a tendency to start over, fall on my face, sulk and start over again. Welp, guess where we are now. You got it, I'm about to start over again. Or at least that's what I'm telling myself in my head. I've procrastinated ALL of 2015 so far and it's about time I put my foot in my own ass and get it together. My first post of 2015 was scheduled to be about my 2015 goals list. I've been operating all year with absolutely NO goals. What's up with that girl?  So here's my list. Most of these revolve around my health because it's been a little out of control lately. I'm also keeping in mind that 1/3 of the year is gone bye bye.


  1.  LOSE WEIGHT (doctor's orders, blood pressure problems, diabetes scare, self esteem booster - yeah ALL THAT)
  2. Publish a book. (I wrote and now I gots to sell it)
  3. Build my Simply Unique brand. 
  4. Re-Launch Diva's Connection
  5. 1 Family Vacation (just me and my boys)
  6. Raise Credit Score by 100 pts. 
  7. MOVE (this apartment is entirely too small and even though I'm not ready to be a home owner I got to get the hell up out of here)
  8. Paul Laurence Dunbar Community Festival 
  9. Blog better and more consistently 
  10. Start YouTube Channel
Okay let's limit this to 10. I think I can do these before the year is over. I look forward to keep you guys updated on my progress. 

What were your resolutions for 2015? Did you procrastinate? How far have you progressed?

10 Things That Make Me Happy

In an effort to write more and post more on my blog (once again) I am going to start sharing writing prompts on my Facebook page. I'm sharing them with my friends because I truly believe in the calming power of writing and if I can encourage just one person to write then I've done my job. So here you have it' 10 Things That Make Me Happy: In No Particular Order 


Motherhood. Without out a single ounce of exaggeration, I live for my kids. I am consistently plagued with feelings of loathing and self doubt but I know that I brought these little people into the world and that I'm responsible for them. Because I feel that I have the responsibility to put on a brave face for so many other people no one will every fully understand the demons I fight on a regular basis. My children are my protectors. If it weren't for them I would have lost my battle to at least one a long time ago. 






Creating. Ya'll know I love to craft. My love for craft gives me a sense of accomplishmen…

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …

Weight Loss Check In- Week 1 - Days 1 thru 7

Starting Weight: 290 according to the new scale.
Target Weight: My initial target weight for the end of week one was 282 lbs. but that was when I thought I weighed 285.
Current Weight: 287

How Many To Lose: 2lbs. Hopefully I'll lose more.
Overall Goal Weight: 175
Overall Need to Lose: 112 Good LORD!


This week I started with meal replacement shakes. My will power was not strong! I was able to do the shakes 3 full days, meaning I had one for breakfast and one for lunch with a sensible dinner. I purchased both Slimfast and Atkins and have been having the Slimfast shakes for breakfast and the Atkins shakes for lunch. I would say that those are to credit for the 2 lb weight loss because I didn't exercise...at all - just tried to move around more. This upcoming week I am going to do the meal replacements Monday -Thursday and see how many pounds I lose.


Even though the scale didn't move much I do have so…
