Working on Option Two

I entered into my coworkers’ office, where I encountered my first test for the day. She greeted me by saying, I looked nice. Then, she proceeded to ask me if I was going to the club after work (I had on a maxi dress).  Now, I had two options on how to react. One- Become indignant or Two- Ignore. I chose 3- The stare down. I gave her a look that brought a loud silence of discomfort.

I can’t say I was pleased with my reaction. I didn’t react verbally, but my body language was screaming nasty words. I was disappointed in myself. I’m trying to master “the love walk”.

I do not believe in allowing people to bulldoze over you. Yet, there is not always a need to retaliate. I am held accountable for my own actions. There are going to be people who do not have the right thing to say. It’s my job to respond in the right way.

I’m pretty sure, someone else will say something disrespectful…more practice to master “the love walk”.


Married life


Once the novelty of the shiny new rings wear off; and after the honeymoon…the married life begins.

Marriage is not always easy. Two very unique people have come together as one (lawd, my husband and I are so “special”). Regardless, of how much we love each other our differences clash. At one point, I wondered if I was going to make it. Sometimes, our clashes felt like a war. In every conflict, there is a learning curve. For me, growth in the area of communication; and of course, taming the tongue. It’s ok to let go of “it’s not that serious issues”. So what, he does not make the bed everyday. So what, he leaves the sliding door open for the dog. So what, he does not wipe the toothpaste splatter off the bathroom mirror. So what, he leaves the toilet seat up… well, I kinda wish he would put it down at all times. I almost fell in the toilet. Nevertheless, It’s a lot of other things he does right!! He loves me unconditionally!!

We made a vow, for better or for worse. The worse is only temporary; for better is eternal.

I love my husband!!

There is not a cup that can quench my thirst. This plate set before me cannot hold what I need. I’ m on a quest for change.

Tired of the same things. Man, I’m not feeling fulfilled. I’ve lost enough sleep and time. I have to overcome this hurdle. I’m moving forward without any doubts. Thanks to my past and present. I’m figuring it out.

Launching out into entrepreneurship.
