Getting up Earlier (The Key to well needed ME time)

On weekends I’d rather stay in bed as long as I want to. That’s not realistic especially when you have a toddler. I’ve figured out a way to get things done so that I can have the rest of my day to myself.

I get up before everyone. Getting up earlier (5:00am) allows me the solitide I need to get things done.

I take care of the laundry, clean, and make breakfast just in time when they’re up (8:00AM)

Those 3 hours sometimes more if I’m up before 5 helps me to get through the day.

Im able to get my ME time and who doesn’t like well needed ME Time.

Letting Go – (Blogmas Day 18)

I’ve mentioned my friend Sally* before, we were having a conversation today over coffee. It was good to see her. It’s almost midnight and I’ve realized that I haven’t made a post entry. We’ve got to figure out a blogging schedule going forward.

Letting Go- You will not heal until you’ve let go of what broke you; say that again. Those words came up in our conversation and I thought they were very profound.

Letting Go

Do you find it hard to find closure after a bad break up? Do you still feel that you need to give them a second chance because it was “your” fault why that thing happened and if you just gave them another shot things will get better? Do you still find it hard to hold onto that friendship because you grew up in the same neighborhood went to the same middle school? It could be your job, friendship, relationship whatever it is until you let go and rid yourself of the hurt you will not find peace.

2021 is a few weeks away. Start over, find the peace that you truly deserve. Your happiness means more than anything else. Take that leap and let Let Go, you’d be better off for it.Let Go…

Just saw the beautiful woman on Twitter share how she has left her boyfriend of 8 years 🙌🏿👏 @matthewstam1. I hope they’re other brave men and women like her who chose peace and happiness first. Let Go….

Are you still there? Blogmas Day 16

It’s funny as things seemed to be going great for my blog weird things starts to happen. I finally got some time to check out my favorite blogs, engage and check out the latest happenings.

I’m shocked to learn that I’m no longer able to view my followers. I am not sure if anyone is still here. If you’re still around I’d appreciate it if you not only liked this post but also comment.

I’m just going to take this as an opportunity to start over. Life happens I guess. I have so many things planned out for this blog/website. I’m currently working on my logo and the whole look and feel of it. I’m excited and I can’t wait for you all to see it.

Until Next Post….

Name Change? Blogmas Day 12 & 13

I’ve been thinking about changing my name to something different. I will still review books but, I also like to write about random none book-related things. This blog is of course my E-Diary.

How do you guys feel about musingsbyDee? I want to broaden my niche on this blogosphere. I’m pretty excited about it and I am looking forward to sharing more on my blog. I’ve already started by changing the username. In the coming days, I will be doing some more work on my blog. I’m trying to make a smooth transition so bare with me and I hope you’ll stick around.

Have you ever thought about changing your name? What was that like? How did it affect your blog?

Live your life…

I don’t think we truly ever really grasp the phrase “live your life”… It’s 1:31 am just got up because I felt thirsty. I pick up my phone and decided to browse until I feel sleepy again. I go unto Twitter and before I could scroll to the end all I could see were people saying condolences, I can’t believe this , what about his wife and baby. Curiosity got the best of me and I did a quick search to find out that, one of the persons I interacted with on social media drowned today.

Shock, disbelief, and all the emotions you feel when you hear of death has triggered me. Now I’m up in bed thinking that this person I’ve never met is gone and his wife and 2 year old is without a husband and father. This man who would often take time out of his busy schedule to share with his many followers what you needed to know in the creative industry topped off with daily musings of his adorable daughter.

Not often am I triggered by the death of someone I have never met, but I’m left to think about how he often shared that we should live our lives to the fullest and not wait for tomorrow as it’s promised to no one. Whatever it is that you’re (myself included) thinking of doing to make your life worthwhile you should do it. Stop wasting time thinking about what-ifs, go out, and do that damn thing.

You see this man when he was 20 years old had this amazing idea that would change how people would engage in the creative industry, he met upon naysayers but that never stopped him from living his truest potential. He made it big by the age of 25. He’s now 34 years old. So young, still have so much to do and he never wasted any time listening to people who thought his dreams weren’t valid.

You only have one life, one you, so start somewhere do something. What will be your legacy? Don’t let people or your loved ones say “you know he/she wanted to do this but never got to or was too afraid to start”. Let the people we leave behind be comforted by the fact you did the unthinkable, you went after what you believed in and you were able to leave a mark.

Live your life, don’t wait until tomorrow, I know how scary the thought of doing something you’ve always wanted to do is but you have to just start. Do the thing that makes you scared. It’s ok if you fail but don’t stop and allow the negative to hold you back. Get up and brush yourself off and start again.

Lastly, in living your life hug the people that matter. Cherish your loved ones, don’t take for granted the people that matter. Especially in this time where most people are not able to visit, make that call you’ll be happy you did.

If you’ve read to the end of my ramblings, Thank you 😊, I appreciate it. Live your life….
