Hey Hey There!

It is 7 degrees where I am this morning. I would not dare think about taking my 8 month old out in this weather today. I guess my errands will have to wait until Saturday. I just don’t feel like dealing with this cold, I love cold weather but 7 degrees is definitely not my kinda cold.

Any who! This week I am thankful for unexpected opportunities. I have recently been given a pretty awesome opportunity and decided to take advantage of it. I absolutely love when things unexpectedly fall into place. I am a true believer that everything happens in its own time and at the right time. Sometimes living day-to-day life may become boring or you see others getting opportunities that you have worked towards for years. I am learning that things (especially good things) tend to happen when you least expect it.

I used to shy away from opportunity that was out of my comfort zone. I thought if I’m not used to doing it then I don’t know how good or happy I will be doing it. My¬†decision would be to pass on it. I later learned that opportunities are what teach us what we both like and dislike. Taking opportunities that are offered or presented whether it’s a successful one or not is what guides us to our true passion.

Opportunities-Missed

I say all of this to say when an opportunity is presented to you don’t be so quick to pass. You never know what blessing you are passing up. ¬†Stay warm people! What are you thankful for on this very frigid Thursday morning?

Hey Hey!

Today I am thankful for my spontaneity! I awoke this morning in New Jersey. Husby and I drove all day yesterday from North Caroline to New Jersey. My husband is in the Navy reserves and at times they will send him somewhere to work the weekend. We like to use these trips as a quick get away and visit friends or family depending upon where we go. Although, yesterdays drive was nothing close to quick. It was fun! Last time it was Virginia and I got to spend a little time with my older sis and my handsome nephew. This time we are visiting my husband’s cousin and her cute as a button son.

My husband and I would always take advantage of these trips before we had baby pie. ¬†He would usually find out a week or two before having to leave and we would just pack up on Thursday¬†after work, I would scramble to get time off at work and we would be on the road before the sun was up on Friday¬†morning. I used to really dislike the short notice, but over time it became an adventure. One thing we promised each other is that spontaneity would not stop after baby. ¬†Life definitely changed when baby pie was born ( movies are limited to once a week and weekends are devoted to baby pie) and people told us that you won’t be doing the same thing you are doing now after baby. Although things have changed, I am so thankful and appreciative that our spontaneity hasn’t.

We love our little one so much though, so even if it did change we would find ways to make that change as adventurous as possible. Sometimes change is needed to give your adventure a little twist. What are you thankful for this Thursday?

Hey Hey!!

Thanksgiving!! A time to get together with family and friends who are like family to celebrate just being together. To me Thanksgiving is a time to not only give thanks for the things you do have (like good food) it’s a time to be thankful for the things that could have been as well. I think a lot about what direction my life could have went when I was younger. Sometimes we go through things for the purpose of coming out of them victorious. When we look behind us to catch a glimpse of the past that could have been, most will smile and be¬†¬†thankful for where they are today.

I believe our lives are a series of events that take place based off of our reactions and decisions. We are given free will to do as we please. So, what I am thankful for on this lovely crisp Thanksgiving day? Free will. I am proud of the decisions I have made in life both good and bad because as clich√© as this sounds, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without those decisions. With that ¬†said, today shouldn’t be¬†the only day we give thanks. I know some of you may read this and see my weekly Thankful Thursdays and think how is it that she has something she is thankful for every week? My answer to that is I woke up this morning. That alone deserves so much more than thankfulness. Let’s try to be thankful for everything we are given good and bad. I am even thankful for the bad ( and by bad I mean for me, not in general)people¬†placed¬†¬†in my life. Some of those people I never want to see again, but all the same I am thankful to have met them, for without them I would not be able to identify¬†the type of friendships I don’t want.

Now all seriousness aside ūüôā I am very thankful for good food this Thanksgiving lol. I have been on a strict juice diet in hopes to lose this excess baby weight. I’m excluding Thanksgiving Day because let’s be honest not even a dieter of all diets¬†could control their urge to not eat on such a day as Thanksgiving. I will continue the day after, it’s soo hard y’all! ūüė¶ but it is very much worth it. ¬†Thank you for stopping by to check me out weekly. Thanks for listening while I ramble on about baby, weekly thanks, natural hair, and feeding my DIY addiction. I appreciate all of you so much and I am very thankful for you guys ūüôā ¬†What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving week?¬†Happy Thanksgiving and Stay Inspired!

Hey Hey!

I hope everyone has had a fantastic Thursday!
I am so sorry this Thankful Thursday is late today. I recently went home to spend a couple of days with my mom for her birthday and I fell a little behind schedule. With that said, I am thankful for two things this week. A loving momma and to see another Thanksgiving! My mother will be turning 61 on Sunday¬†and I am thankful for that. Even though she can work my nerves sometimes she is still my momma and I know I can always get that unconditional love from her. I love you Florence Heslip ūüôā

Hey Hey!

Happy Thursday!!!!

I hope everyone is having a great day! This week I am thankful for time. It truly is precious. I recently¬†read the news about a¬†29-year-old woman diagnosed with¬†brain cancer and was given only a couple of months to live. Told by doctors her last months on this earth would be painful.¬†She has chosen a date ( Nov. 1)to end her life and has stated she is trying to live her last couple of weeks on this earth traveling and spending her husbands birthday (Oct. 30) with him one last time. I admire her¬†courage and she has inspired me to remember that time has a forceful¬†way of showing us the value of life. God never puts on us more than we can bear. I reminded myself of this as I read her story, because my heart broke for her and I started to get a little angry that she only gets 29 years. God bless her and her family. Let’s keep her in our thoughts and prayers.

We would all like to think that we have all the time in the world, but at anytime anything can happen. We should all be thankful for the time we have already spent on this earth and everyday we wake up. Always make the time you have count. This is why I feel it is important for us all to do what we love in life, fight for what you believe in and always stay aware of how you choose to spend your time. Stay Inspired and thankful!
