Running too fast.

Really Bummy picture. Sorry Love bugs. ūüė¶

Sometimes I have the tendency to run so fast that I forget to enjoy the scenery around me. As though I’m living in the moment yet everything is gong by so quickly that I’m hardly having enough time to sit back and savour the moment. Arrrgghhh! ¬†God is good though. He has given me the strength to run 2.75 miles today. ¬†I even made this healthy protein shake thing for diner. I’m so happy when I am at home, and right now while I’m blogging. Although at school I feel so distant as though I have mental pressed pause and I’m waiting to press play again. This is the thing….

Revelation time. Sit back and grab your popcorn & tea.

I’m ready. I’m mentally and¬†spiritually¬†ready. I’m not one of those seniors that’s just “over it” mid way through the year. But I’m over one thing. I’m sorry to talk about friends again but I want Christian friends that will challenge me¬†spiritually¬†and challenge me to be the best me I can be. I want to see my friends and see a reflection of God’s principles in them. I want boys friends that I can talk to about sexual challenges as¬†young¬†Christians¬†without it being “awkward”. I just need some¬†perspectives¬†from guys… I don’t have any brothers. *tear*

Although I feel as though in high school it’s more¬†difficult¬†to cut people out of my life. Where as in college I will have the confidence to say “Hey buddy, you aren’t a good influence on me. I can no longer be you friend because I believe God has a greater plan for me” The friend break-up won’t be that harsh but you get the picture.

Ciao Bella!

No Shade

Hey Love Bugs!

No Shade-¬†A phrase you add at the beginning or the end of a sentence that can be seen as negative to somebody, but its not supposed to be, and just stating the obvious. Synonyms include, “no offense” or “don’t take it personally”¬†(Source UD)

I feel like when people say “no shade” they want to say an insult without actually meaning for it to be an insult. For example: “Hey girl that skirt really isn’t working for you! No Shade!” Or “Hey sista, how long have you had those braids in? No Shade!” Or… Well, I think you get my point. But this “No Shade” moment is directed towards my friends. The thing is prom is coming up this spring. Yay-hay! And the only thing that can assure my friend’s happiness for prom is¬†securing¬†a date.

*Sigh*

I personally could care less if I do or don’t have a date for prom. I’ve had oodles of fun with my friends at the past homecomings as we were the group of “single ladies”. Granted I did feel a ping of jealously/loneliness when I saw some of the cute couples— but that feeling was shaken off after I enjoyed pleasant after-homecoming events at the local IHOP! So why my friends are so worried about finding a date to prom boogles me. This may sound like a really petty¬†dilemma¬†and I bet in a year from now I will laugh at the post but this is my life at the moment.

So in conclusion, To my friends: You don’t need a date to prom to make the night special. No Shade!

And leave a comment below about any of your own “No Shade” moments.

Ciao Bella!

Fall in Winter.

Hey Love bugs.

The truth is that this year I don’t think winter is coming to visit Texas. I’m honestly not too sad. Some people moan about hating cold weather, put a jacket on! Some people moan about hating the heat, take off your clothes. Scratch the last part. But the weather out side is about 77 Degrees¬†Fahrenheit and the sun is shinning. Hello Texas! 77 Degrees in January and ‘winter’. Texas weather— No complaints here though. I hope everyone is having a lovely Friday. Do something special today.¬†¬†Oh my sister, P$ (P-money), bought some new nail polish so I’m a expedition to try all out. (sidenote: No make-up today and I feel like my bun game is on point!)

 

Ciao Bella! 

Head to Toe

Hey Love bugs. I was thinking about doing an outfit of the day but I’m looking a bit¬†Grundy. So I thought I would do a head to toe look because I really like my shoes and my hat. (Sidenote: I’m a shoe-a-holic. I buy soooo many pairs of shoes. Because unlike most people I will buy a pair of shoes then imagine what perfect pieces will complement the shoes. Do you know how hard it is to find “imagined”¬†clothing items?) ¬†And below I added the final product of my manicure from my post Girly Day!

Ciao Bella!

Don’t worry

Hey Love bugs!

If you look in my bible the most worn out page contains this passage. I’m always reading it. I guess it’s just my comforting mechanism that reminds me that God is in control of all my circumstances. Here is the passage. Enjoy!

Matthew 6:25-34

New International Version (NIV)

Do Not Worry

25 ‚ÄúTherefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?¬†¬†¬†28 ‚ÄúAnd why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you‚ÄĒyou of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‚ÄėWhat shall we eat?‚Äô or ‚ÄėWhat shall we drink?‚Äô or ‚ÄėWhat shall we wear?‚Äô 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Ciao Bella!
