It’s December

We are in the home-stretch now, right at the end of the year. We have less than 31 days to the New Years. Time has flown and I do not know where it went. It always seems like as soon as we enter into December, time is on auto speed. Wooah!   Can we all just say 2018 was super crazy? 2018 has been on an up and down roller coaster. One moment I was having a good time and everything was going great for me. Then the next thing I know it was a total shit show. (Side note: Excuse my language…. I had no other words to use to express how I feel about the lows) December is always a love-hate time for me. I love that it is near the end where I can start over and reinvent, however I feel like I am under a lot of pressure. Some times it take me out of the holiday cheer, I do not like that at all. Instead of being caught up in the rat race of hectic behavior, I decided I am going to focus on calm. Calmly, I am going to take all the things on …

I can’t wait to eat my mom’s home cooking. Dressing (aka stuffing), Collard Greens, Chicken,  and Sweet Potato pie. Omg my mouth is watering right now. Another reason why I love this month is because I really get to focus hard on gratitude.  Now yes we are supposed to be thankful everyday, but this month really help put things into perspective for me.

Shesh !  So this month is about HEALING ! The focus on healing myself inside and out , and mentally.
