Black Lives Matter is Misunderstood.

I see people still don't fully understand...Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and perceived systemic racism toward black people. BLM regularly holds protests against police killings of black people and broader issues of racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.

Crime is going to happen period. Black on Black crime is not a thing. It's made up to make us think that we kill each other at a rate more alarming than any other race kills people of their race. So while "Black on Black" murder is bad...as long as people murder "Race on Race" crime will exist because statistically speaking you have a greater chance of killing someone of your own race because we usually live in communities with those of our own race.

Now what is NOT typical is when police officers or other people in power kill or treat wrongly one race disproportionately than other races. THAT is what BLM is about. Asking them to speak out on every crime that happens involving a black person would cause their mission to be so diluted that they would essentially not have a mission.

I'm just really sick of hearing people who aren't doing anything but complaining complain without having all the facts.

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.

2 New Weight Loss Tips

So, I recently started using to new nutrient based things to help me in my weight loss journey. I haven't really been taking them long enough to give you guys any final results but I would like to go ahead and let you know what they are and how I fell about them so far. I've been taking them for a week now.

The first is Gymnema Sylvestre and it is a natural herb that helps regulate blood sugar and curbs your cravings for sugar. Now, I am a sugar addict! I mean if I had my way I'd have a pastry (or 2) for breakfast, something sweet for lunch and something sweet with dinner not to mention juices and sugar based snacks throughout the day. I mean I've got it bad.

Now I'm starting to think the Gymnema Sylvestre is working because I purchased a bundtlet from Nothing Bundt Cakes Tuesday and it is DELICIOUS...but I've only managed to eat a third of it. I've had it for 2 days already. NO WAY IN HELL is this normal for me! So I think this one is working.
