What Will the Old Kanye Say?

In a one on one interview with "The Breakfast Club's " Charlamagne Tha God, artist, Kanye West dived into detail on his relationship with Jay-Z, his mental "break through", and much more. 

Ye has been shaking up social media in the past few weeks with his free- thinking cryptic tweets, and support of current president, Donald Trump.

We all are trying to wrap our head around the fiasco, especially after he dropped the sound bite in a TMZ interview in reference to stating "Slavery was a choice". 

Leading after the TMZ blowout was the drop of the hour and forty-five minute interview that may or may not give you understanding of Kanye's perspective.

Self- Care Sundays

Self Care-Sundays

Today I had the epiphany that I need to declare one day out of the week to just being alone and taking care of myself and my body. I work long weeks at a job where I have to give my energy to tons of people, often times who are not nice and aren't worthy of my time. Then I have to dedicate a lot of my time to school which is technically for me , but its just not the same.  

I work myself until the point where I don't want to do anything for long periods of time and its because I'm not taking time to re-boot and refresh myself on a regular basis that I just shut down. With school coming up, I'm already knowing that my time for myself is going to get cut. 

As of recently I've been doing a nightly skincare routine that gives me some sense of feeling replenished, but I decided today that I also need to give myself a whole day from now on. I will do anything that will bring me joy and will set my goals for the week. 

With that being said,  prepare to receive weekly updates on what I do on my self-care Sunday's! 

My First Blog of 2018!

I know it's rolling onto the last week of January, but HAPPY NEW YEAR! Man, I haven't touched a computer to type for pleasure in I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG! Between my first blog post on my site and now, I did so much that I never even thought I was really going to accomplish so quick. I completed a goal off of my list of " Things I want to accomplish in 5 Years" and that was hosting the red carpet for the BET Awards, I filmed the second season of my talk show which i'm in love with, and I am now coming up on the last semester of Junior College. Like where the HELL did time go?

These past few months have been nuts, because I had to take about 14 units at school, on top of working, and trying live my life. Honey when I tell you I was tired....I WAS TIRED. That was the first time I can actually say I did not sleep for months and my body paid for it. I did not write blogs, or do any media; the career aspect of my life was deceased for those few months. 

Fast forward to now, I am still working a dreadful job in retail, but I have way more time with only having two classes so hopefully if I don't feel like pushing to be on red carpets, I will have more time for The Daily T.

When the new year started, I told myself I was not over extending myself for anyone, and I was going to give me all of my attention. So since the year started after I got back from my amazing trip to D.C, I reset my life. I deleted apps, focused on drinking more water, eating right, and doing some form of meditation everyday... prettttty much, I've been minding my damn business. Its only been two weeks y'all (LMAO), but I feel FAN-F'ING-TASTIC. There's nothing better than feeling like you are really taking care of your mind, body, and soul to the best of your abilities. 

I honestly don't plan to stop here either. I start a fitness bootcamp Feb 1st, and I am so damn excited about what Im about to get my crazy ass into, I could hardly wait. I can just imagine coming home sore as shit but so happy that I'm not home moping feeling sorry for myself because I feel like crap. UGH Never going back there again. NOBODY HAS TIME FOR A PITY PARTY BABY! 

I have a list of goals that I plan to fulfill for the year, so Im staying low-key and just pacing myself.

I'll be blogging more thats for sure! 

My 2018 right now is pretty lit, I can't complain. 

Trusting God; My Journey

God and I had this really interesting relationship from my childhood and now into my adulthood. He in a sense was like a parent that knew I loved them but also knew I would go astray into the world to ultimately return back into their arms. Growing up the word of God was always instilled into me by both parents but as far as I could remember mainly my Dad. I remember going to Sunday school and my mom making sure my outfits were POPPING, hair laid in my plats with the cute barrettes, and the orange juice and snacks the church would have for us in the classroom. Y’all I loved Sunday school for that! Another routine that helped lay the foundation of God in my life was my dad making my brother and I read our favorite scripture (mine was “The Narrow and the Wide Gates”) every day before we went to school in the mornings. I’m sure you guys could imagine that this was not an easy task for my father to consistently execute every morning. I was not having it. I would fuss, fight, scream, and cry to not have to read that scripture not knowing that one day I was going to appreciate that. Going into the end of high school this act stopped because my parents separated my 10th grade year and things became different. I lived with my mom and that was not something she enforced so the habit left.  I feel like this was also a time in all of our lives where God’s presence was absent from our minds. Our family was dismantled, finances had to be rearranged and at one point food was harder to come by. As far as me going through life experiences in high school, I was never home. I was staying out at friend’s houses, partying; I just was not grounded, I was everywhere. My mom allowed me to learn on my own how this world works. She without a doubt trusted me that I would not stray away too far and inevitably I came back. By my senior year I calmed down, but instead of trusting God, I trusted the “universe” or other entities. I believed in God but because of the crowd I was around God Talk sounded way crazier than talking about the Universe being on my side and such. To fast forward it was not until I got my heart broken for the first time in college that I turned to God for guidance, strength, and peace. In due time I acquired all that I was praying for. I joined a church, read the bible more, and made godly friends. I started seeing God opening up all of these doors for me the moment I trusted in him and stopped stressing over things I had no control over. Recently I was struggling with bouts of depression occasional anxiety which was horrible but in my eyes this only occurred because I forgot about the trust I had in God and knowing that he was going to turn my life around. I now have it placed in my mind God has the power to change things, and that all I need to do is step back, trust him, and let him do his job. I don’t have time to worry about what can’t be, why did this happen to me, or what’s my next step. Why you might ask? The moment you start trusting God and the plan he has for your life things change for the better. Don't believe me? Just watch what happens.
