Is It Time To Talk More About Ties That Bind?

annie-spratt-80662Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash

I often ask myself this question all the time, Is It Time To Talk More About Ties That Bind? Yes, It Is Time! I said I would share my life with hopes to inspire someone else to keep going & never give up! What could possibly be ties that bind in a life of a forty-five year old that should be more vibrant & fulfilling? Of course it is because I wake up with great hope in my heart. I will tell you this, if I do not literally inspire myself on a daily basis I would have lost my whole self a long time ago. I will be sharing exactly what I feel as I think the ties that bind try to find their own ways to let go of a life that I had to leave behind.

The life was once a three bedroom house with enough furnishings to have a mini yard sell which was very successful I must add. However, living from hotel to motel trying to keep a roof over my head I could not afford my storage so I ended up losing the rest. Those furnishing were blessings & keepsakes that were up for sale & there was nothing I could do about it.

I have yet to figure out how in the hell I still manage to maintain a smile…eye-for-ebony-354857.jpgPhoto by Eye for Ebony on Unsplash

Ties that bind, there is always a thought pondering somewhere in my mind…that there is no escape. As I try not to focus on the one room temporary arrangements especially around the holidays…WHOA…WTF do you mean temporary…you have been trapped in this little box for 4 years to be exact. Perhaps since you want to be so specific with the public why don’t you just unleash the real dragon you have become. I will not tell them about my F*#K It Syndrome. giphy (1)You better stop it so I can stay on task here. That could possibly be another topic for a different post…So, I need you to be quiet…I talk to myself & I consider it to be pretty normal because it can actually calm emotions…You should try it!

Back to the topic at hand. I finally came out of my little box to enjoy my family for the holidays and I must say I had a blast.paul-369641 (1).jpgPhoto by Paul on Unsplash

Well, I use to consider this box a small stumbling block as the ties that bind. However, I had to regain a greater perspective in my mind using the simplified version of what life in my early forties had become. A better simplistic focus was geared toward the fact I do not have to be stressed about having the extra bills to pay on a monthly basis. To break it down in a simplier form I currently do not pay for lights, water, wifi, or cable & it is always available until something out of the norms takes place.

The more powerful negative thoughts would try to over power me & lead me to believe that there is no escape.

So I had to start using this small setting as a selected skill that will inspire me on a daily basis therefore I call it home.sylwia-pietruszka-218324.jpgPhoto by Sylwia Pietruszka on Unsplash

The more positive aspect of it all for me is that I could be outside under a bridge or just outside somewhere without a roof over my head. Excuse me! What is it now? Did you tell them you have a job? You didn’t give me Time!

I do have a job, but somehow I still feel trapped because I have existing bills that are hindering me from moving forward. I also have a car note with insurance, weekly rent, & I gotta eat…GEESH! So has this been a test because just four years ago I felt as if I had it all. I really don’t question it because I was sleeping in my van that was repo’d around the Thanksgiving holidays of 2014…I was like how in the Hell will I get a plate now.

I really think you skipped a lot of shit. Be patient!

Is There Really Light At The End Of The Tunnel light-2581929.jpg

Once again I sit here feeling as if you are all I hear.

connor-mcsheffrey-87383.jpgPhoto by Connor McSheffrey on Unsplash

always wondering where do I go from here

contemplating the devil will sink me with fear

You promised me you would not put no more on me that I could bear

but on normal days if my hair was not loc’d Snapshot_20170819_11

I probably would find myself pulling out my hair. What is at the end of this tunnel? Is

there light…Whether I choose to do wrong from right.

You are always on my mind

because in this storm you deserve the glory

in the end my testimony will be a miraculous story

Will I remain broken, yet healed or will this testimony saves lives

because my story is real

I am overwhelmed however rejoiced even in the The Epitome of Healing

My faith, trust, & patience is being tested

therefore this storm was never my choice.

IT HAS BEEN 1 MONTH TODAY

The Only Blogging Tips I Can Offer For Now As A New Blogger is to Visit Other Readers & Become Engaged in the Community.

One month ago today, I decided to step out on faith Step Out On Faith

to see what it was going to be like in the blogging community. So, in September I started deep researching on Google & Pinterest about starting a blog. I had to set this as a goal on my vision board

My Vision To A New Beinnin
My Vision Board on a Manilla Folder!

or today I would still be looking at the drama that is currently on Facebook or watching Law & Order Marathons (I still do). I needed to set myself up so I would not be totally lost when I jumped on board. I must admit I was so nervous, but I must tell you there is information in the blogging community as well and so many people willing to help when you’re New To Blogging!

There is so much information out here & it’s scary. However, I was really determined and my mind was already made up. To keep myself organized I have my vision board and my notebook because I cannot function if I am all over the place & I will get better with Time

I really do feel as if I am in the right place at the right time. I have come across some amazing bloggers and became engaged in the community. Today I want to introduce you all to my readers that follow my blog & I am too excited:
