Welcome Back?

I’ve written many posts and in so doing, have shared most of my life’s updates with you, but the major downside is, I’ve only done so in my head. On reality, it has been well over a year since I’ve posted anything new, well, actually closer to two years. I’ve finally surrendered to the fact that I’m very bad at this consistent writing thing so now I must look for a new method. 

I write this post in hopes that I will actually complete it and not only that, but that I will also upload it so that eyes other than my own can view. Attached to that hope is also the thought that perhaps my passion for writing will reignite and I will begin another writing and posting spree, no matter if it’s temporary. One of those things only time will tell.

Just another day

Today is an extremely hot, sunny and beautiful day; somewhere in the mid-nineties. Surprisingly, apart from the sweat factor, I’ve been pretty comfortable. I am not sure why, but my mood has been on a fiery roller-coaster, one minute I am calm, cool and collected, the other, I am sensitive and offended by everything and everyone (my poor husband). I don’t know if it’s the weather or if I’m a true victim of the injustices of this great life-I know I am mighty dramatic too, right? But, life for me lately has been this on and off, hot and cold emotional ride.

As I type, I am sitting in my AC chilled living room, eating yogurt and waiting for my husband to get home (to watch our daughter) so that I can go to the gym. I am tired from a long and hot day at work, but an evening workout with two of my great friends (one of whom is my sister), seems to give me enough energy to forge ahead, especially since there has been talk of getting some kind of ice-cream/frozen yogurt afterward.

Today has not been too exciting, so far, but I did accomplish a lot and that’s what I am extremely proud of. The goals that I set for my day will be completed, as soon as I post this blog, finish my workout, eat that ice-cream yogurt stuff, read a few pages in a few books, spend quality time with my little family, reflect on my day, consider tomorrow, say my prayers…WOW! This looks like a long night ahead. I think I kind of overwhelmed myself a bit- I never realized how much stuff I do in a few hours timeframe, and to top it off, I am still sleepy from this morning.

I also feel like I am coming down with a cold, my mildly sore throat from yesterday turned into nasal congestion and a day full of sneezing. The good things is, I don’t feel sick or rundown and I pray that I won’t. I am really boring myself with this post, but pressing past procrastination and actually sitting down and typing a post is a long overdue goal of mine, so this is a step in the “action” direction.

As a woman who is passionate about life and pensive about many things and has varying interests and subject matters, you will find that my blog site will feature different ideas. I hope that you will find a laugh, a smile, an encouraging word mixed with some enlightenment as you take the time to read what passes through my mind and often lingers in my heart.

Random things about me: I love reading and learning about different matters and topics. I google almost anything. I believe that love does conquer all. I am a product of the belief that, “A kind word can really go a long way”. I own a Nook and I love it because it’s like my own portable library. I’m a happy newlywed and new mom. I love my family and am extremely grateful, and I try to show my appreciation to the best of my ability.

(AND) I am pretty forward when it comes to speaking my mind and at times I add some cushion to what I say. I also am aware that I am a work in progress and I have a long way to go. I love people. I adore people who are generous enough to call me their friend. My heart bleeds for young women, especially those who have issues with self-esteem. I have a growing love for community outreach and I am currently working on enhancing this desire.

There are many other thing that I can say about myself, but I will end with this, Jesus is the center of who I am and I am not ashamed to state that fact. This is a big step for me, and I am excited about finally taking the time to commit to writing this blog. What I will write may not always be interesting, nor politically correct and may even challenge the lines of what someone like me ‘should’ say… AND I cannot promise that it will be free from typos and grammatical errors, but I guarantee it will be sincere. I do expect that as time goes on, I will become better and better is what I look forward to. Feel free to comment and subscribe. -Madison5thave
