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 accomplishment, it is calming and and it provides an additional source of income for my family. 

Planning. I'm forever late and I usually end up procrastinating anyway; but I love planning; making list and forms and all other types of dorky shit that I don't follow. 

Library Kids. I've been fortunate in having a job that has allowed me to touch so many people's lives. I am always overjoyed when former library kids come back to visit me or when I see them elsewhere and they tell me that I've had an impact on their lives. 

Helping explanation. I do things for other people because it gives me purpose and then I feel guilty because that's so selfish. 

Mexican Food...I don't know if it's because my name is Latina or what but I gets down on some Mexican food. From the fake Taco Bell to the amazing Marta Pena. #YasssssHuntie 

Family. No, not the same as my kids. I mean my mom, my siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins...the whole 9...or 999 in the case of my family! Love Y'all. 

Babies. If you know me at all you know I loves me some babies! Bring 'em all to me. #SnoogumBuggoms

Spending time with myself. I like to be alone with my thoughts. I hardly ever am...but the thought is nice. 

Socializing. At times I can't stand people but most of the time I like networking and connecting...but once we make that connection leave me alone...I can't be bothered boo boo. 

Please share 10 things that make you happy. A list with no explanations is fine.

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.

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 …
