"My ex-girlfriend taught me a valuable lesson, if you don’t show a woman you love her and give your all to her—she knows it."

So today I've been reading through all the blogs I've subscribed to but never look at, lol. I came across one that I think will make the top 10 list, just so I can keep up with his posts. The blog is BLACKGIRLSAREEASY.BLOGSPOT.COM ... and I will admit that the only reason I even clicked on it is becasue I was ready to read this fool for such a ratchet damn blog title. However, after reading through some posts I realized that although the blog title is very ignorant (he admitted it as well) he really isn't. It's actually a blog about relationships or in some cases just relations, from a man's POV. I'd check it out, ladies ... if only for a peak inside the mind of man who seems to have done it all AND actually learned something from it!

SN ... the title quote is very, very true ☺

Girl Talk

From the moment that I knew I was pregnant, I knew she was a girl. It wasn't just the fact that I felt just about every pregnancy symptom imaginable within 3 weeks of conceiving right up until the day that I delivered her (It's an old wives tale that girls make you sicker during pregnancy due to increased estrogen). It was a connection that I felt almost immediately. There is absolutely nothing like the bond between mother and daughter. She's my best friend and the most hilarious person that I know. She's taught me so much about myself and life in general, just as I'm teaching her as we go along in this journey together. Life is always the best teacher, but at least she knows that she will never have to face any obstacle alone.

Raising my daughter to be a strong, smart and independent woman is one of my top priorities. Too many young girls are falling short of the simple and basic principles of life, like pride and self respect. A lot of the traps that our babies are falling into can easily be avoided with just a little womans' intuition. The problem is that we aren't being taught or are not teaching just how to listen to that intuition. We're giving away our power by the loads full simply because we don't know how to use it and it has to start somewhere. It should start at home because please believe that while you are awaiting the right time to bring it up, she's learning from everything else around her. TV or friends who really don't know anymore than her; The blind leading the blind!

This is an important matter that will continue to resurface until we really start paying attention. Not trying to control or change them, but getting involved in their lives so you know whats going on. Maintaining the bond so that you can tell when somethings wrong,  when it's time to ease up and let them find their way, or when its time to pull the parent card! There is no sure fire way to ensure that your children will blossom into a model citizens, but when you equip them with the right tools & knowledge you can rest assured that you did your part.

how to prevail in the mist of disappointment.

... You can not control other people! No matter who they are or what you do for them. Everyone has a mind of their own. Even in cases of influence, it may seem as if you can persaud someone to do the things that you want them to but they still have to agree to do it. It is a painful reality, especially when it comes to your children. But once accepted, it's freeing. Trust that you have done your part and it is now up to them to live thier lives.

Getting Connected ...

Being spiritual to me goes beyond what religion I believe in or who I feel has the ultimate say so in what eventually happens to us as a people. Being spiritual to me is more about MY SPIRIT. It's about me doing what I need to do to be more in touch with what makes me happy or what keeps me connected. In order for the elements of your life to flow together they have to be connected. For me, it's as simple as the time I spend alone. Since I was a little girl I've understood the importance of silence. Being still and just listening. Seldom do you find any answers in the wake of chaos. When things get to busy for me or when I begin to feel like something is wrong, I make a way to be by myself. Granted - with 3 toddlers, the hubby, work, writing, blogging, 3 dogs, house keeping, cooking and everything else that pops up in my life - it's not always easy for me to do this, but I know that it's necessary so I make it a priority. Since I've recently gotten back on my health kick, it serves as my me time. I get lost in the silence or the music while I'm on the elliptical or I drive in silence and just think. Sometimes, I get up a little earlier than the kids or stay up after they're put to bed to enjoy the peace and quite. Whatever I have to do, I do it and it makes a world of difference.

What do you do that brings you closer to yourself on a daily basis???

Is it You???

When things go bad in any type of relationship - whether its family, love, friends or career wise - it's always easy to blame the other party for the fall out. Seldom do we look at ourselves to see that maybe {just maybe} we did something or allowed something to go on that lead to the disagreement. Here are a few tips that might help you and your relationship get beyond the drama or at least get you past it ...
  • If your life is consistently on high drama ... it may be you. Drama can be addictive and I, myself am guilty of subconsciously falling into common traps of it. Once I realized this, I started making a conscience effort to avoid drama-filled situations and people ... and what do you know ... less drama.
  • If you never ever feel the need to apologize because you are never wrong ... it may be you. Everyone has their days, no one is perfect and most disagreements are easily squashed with a simple "I apologize for ..." If you feel that you are never in the wrong, chances are: You are the problem. Sometimes you may only need to apologize for your reaction to some one else's imperfection. Whatever the case is, life is simpler when you apologize and let it go.
  • If you find yourself holding on to old grudges ... it's definitely You! He who angers you, controls you {Author unknown}. Don't allow the past to hinder your present life situation. There is absolutely no need for it. This does not mean to forget and not learn from the experience, it only means to forgive and move on. Take the lesson with you, but leave the ill feelings where they are because they only make you feel worse.
  • If you just don't feel the love ... it may be you. Relationships should always be 50/50, but not necessarily in the same way. I may be the friend that you can call and cry to, but you may not be that friend for me. However, you are the friend that I can call for information on anything when I need it or you may be the friend that I hang out with. Don't expect people to love you the way that you love. They are not you. You're only setting yourself up for failure. Accept people for who they are and you'll see how easy it is to recognize the good in them and if it still isn't easy, then it's time to re-evaluate the relationship.
  • If you take and never give or vise versa ... it maybe you. Selfishness is never in season. It's obvious, ugly and only leads to resentment. Now, that doesn't mean give, give, give until you have nothing left. If you're giving your all to someone, they should be filling you up in return. Don't waste your time on one way takers.
  • If it's always someone else's fault ... it may be you. You didn't finish school because your parents weren't supportive. You can't be faithful because your mate doesn't keep you satisfied. You didn't make it to work because your friends wanted to hang out late. COW MANURE! You have to take responsibility for yourself and your decisions. Otherwise, shut up and deal with whatever "they" give you.
Just in case you didn't get the message ... it's mostly always YOU. Only you have the power to make you happy. It's no one else's responsibility. If you are unhappy with someone or something, figure out why. If it's worth fixing, fix it. If not, replace it. Harboring ill feelings only pollutes you. Deal with the matter and move on ... life is much simpler that way.

It's About Time

August 1/ Week 1/ 0 lbs.

I would love to start this off by saying that I'm getting back in shape after having my baby! But let's be real ... my "baby" just turned 3 years old last month. I've long since run out that as a legitimate excuse! Every since I can remember compiling my very first 'New Years Resolution List' there has been one item that never fails to make the top 5 ... one point that I never seem to be able to mark off ... one check mark that NEVER makes the cut. Losing weight as always been an issue for me. I've been up and down most of my life and even during the times where I was happy with the way I've looked, I was never happy with the numbers. The scale and I have continued a love-hate relationship since we've been acquainted and I'm ready to change it all now. Why now? Because I realized recently that if I'd been serious about this from day one, it would all be behind me already, literally. Every time an event comes up I think,"I'd be ready by now if I would have started months ago!" Well, let's just call today "months ago" because that's exactly what it will be when I look back in a few months! When it comes time to compile that list of things I want to accomplish in 2011, I will really have to sit down and think about it because there will be no leftovers from 2010! Everything that I've wanted to accomplish thus far is well on it's way, if not completed ... the big move {check} ... starting my own company {check} ... publishing my first book {check} 2010 has shown me that absolutely nothing is holding me back so there is absolutely no reason for me not to be in the best shape of my life. The Plan has been printed out and posted on my fridge AND my bathroom mirror. The alarm clock has been set, the ipod is ready ... It's about time!

It's been about a month or so since the big move and we're finally settled in! Whew, that was hard work and I'm glad it's over!!! I'm loving Orlando, thus far and can't wait to start exploring more of my new world. Now that we're pretty much back to our normal schedule, I'll be writing and updating alot more. This year is turning out to be really awesome. The kids are starting school, my book will be officially released very soon, we're even working on a family business. Life is good and it's all based on the decisions that you make ... DECIDE WISELY!

Where's Daddy???

If you follow this blog, you know that the Lewis fam has been in the process of moving to Orlando, FL. Last week, the Hubby packed up just about everything we own and went to set up our new home. For an entire week I was bombarded with, "Mommy, where's Daddy??" atleast 3 times a day!! It drove me up the wall, but I know that they miss him! He's a wonderful daddy and I want the world to know it! There should be more like you, babes!!

IMPOSSIBLE ... is nothing.

I heard this song about a week ago while watching Basketball Wives and immediately fell in love. It's been awhile since I heard a song that made me feel the lyrics. I'm always a sucker for a good ballad and heartbreak lyrics. I'm not even going through what Shontelle is singing about, but I sure can remember a time when I was ... and it seems to me that she has stolen that page straight from my journal. I can remember feeling like I would never get over certain things that certain people did. I can remember feeling so stupid because I truly felt that it was IMPOSSIBLE for that certain person to do what they did. But with time and experience you come to realize that nothing is ever IMPOSSIBLE ... absolutely nothing. The word itself says ... IM POSSIBLE {Audrey Hepburn} and now I apply this to every element of my life. Everything is POSSIBLE ...

The fine art of "NO"

Your mom needs you to run to the store. The hubby needs his dry cleaning picked up. The kids are bored. Your friend needs advice. Dinner needs to be cooked. The floor needs to be mopped. The dishes won't clean themselves. Your assignment is due. The boss wants to know where your report is right now!

And all you want to do is run and hide!

The thing about being overwhelmed is that it makes you not want to do anything or better yet ... FACE anything. For fear that there is more to come. That the demands will never stop. The truth: they won't. Some-one will always need some-thing from you, just as you will always need some-one for some-thing. It's the way of the world, we're all co-dependent at our best. The trick is in prioritizing what's important and learning to SAY NO to whats not.

Telling someone you love or care about that you WON'T be able to meet a request of thiers may make you feel like a bad person, but I like to think of it as doing that person a favor. Seriously, I'm not joking! Consider this: If I say yes to something that I either really don't have time to do or really don't want to do, how good of a job am I really going to do?! Not only that, when it doesn't come from the heart it looses its effect. You become resentful and have an "attitude" about the task and/or person and nothing good comes from that. You feel like the person "owes" you something and when it's not reciprocated for whatever reason, your resentment grows. Or you spread yourself so thin that even though you don't mind helping out, you're tired and cranky ... and it shows. Either way, it's best to just be honest about what you are really feeling. If you have room for more on your plate and you don't mind helping, go for it! But, when you start to feel overwhelmed or better yet, once you know you're at the capacity of what you can handle before you start to feel overwhelmed, let it be known. You'll save yourself the stress, you'll save yourself time, and most importantly you'll save your relationships. People have no choice but to respect honesty. They may not like it, but if they choose to maintain the relationship they will respect it and it will free them up to be more honest with you as well. They have probably come to you in the first place because they know you'll do a good job ... why jeopardize that rep by performing below standard because you really didn't have time to focus on the task?!?!?! A good friend or family member will understand that you'd do anything for them under normal circumstances. You have to take care of yourself or everyone suffers.

Mom can ask your brother that sits in his room all day with his headphones to head to the store, and maybe Hubby can pick up his own dry cleaning since he's out anyway. The kids can bust the suds if they don't have anything better to do! While, you breeze through your assignment and the report with ease due to your clear mind and relaxed state!  Okay, maybe in a perfect world but you get my point. Somethings can be worked out and once everyone is on the same accord the ship will run much more smoothly. There will definitely be more family-fun nights versus family-vent nights!

I'm an EARTH DAY baby!

April 22, 2010 was not only my 25th bornday and a special Little B's 2nd. It was Earth Day's 40th bornday as well! 2010 as a whole is unrolling to be an amazing year on so many levels for so many people. For one, it is running by ... can you believe we are already days away from May?!?!?! I, myself have accomplished so much and have watched the people I love and associate with do the same. It's more than obvious that there is something special about this year. Maybe it's the platform of change we've experienced as People that has us all beliving that, YES, WE CAN! or maybe it's just plain old desperation to believe in something other than all the scandals popping up around us. Whatever the reason, the outcome is just beautiful. Whatever it takes for people to realize their own worth and potential is a great enough reason for me. If we're all moving forward, the past will have no choice but to catch up! 

So, this year the Hubby surprised me with a Mini Bahamas Cruise! Right on time, let me tell you ... I was in desperate need for a break. Working fulltime, finishing up with school and you already know about my household (hubby, three toddlers, & now 3 doggies if you don't)! Throw in writing a book, an e-book, several e-courses, posts, setting up websites, and all the tiny, little details that go into actually producing a book independently ... whew! Starting a company and preparing for a BIG move. Yes, I did mean it when I said I was busy during my little hiatus! I really really needed that, so the Hubby got major points. I also set up a little dinner for a few of my fav ladies just because I haven't been able to spend any real time with most of them and miss them sooo much! Plus I'll be leaving my home town more sooner than later and really need to make time for the ones who have truly stuck by me through it all ... and I do mean through it all, lol!

The last thing I'm doing to celebrate the big 2-5 is also to celebrate the 40th anny for Earth Day since I am an Earth Day baby☺. Something small and personal in addition to the more public events we do as a family. I decided I wanted to plant a tree that we could watch grow as we grow closer as a family, as a people, as a world. However, since we decided to make the move I figured I'd either have to wait until we got into the new home and never move again or do something a little more portable, lol. Portable won and I decided to grow a Bonsai tree. Which is just a miniature version of a regular tree that takes just as long to grow. I've been doing some research and I still have a long way to go. I have to decide what kind of tree and get some more training on taking care of one, but it's definitely something that I will beginning once we're settled in!

 Let me see it ...

Do you have a Plan?!

Do you lead a life filled with all the things you love - including relationships, the career, the hobbies - with energy to spare?! Do you manage the office and the household?! Are you a single girl making it happen for yourself?! Are you doing what you love and loving yourself in the process?!

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are indeed Every Woman!

Being Every Woman simply means that you take on many different hats to fulfill whatever goals you have for yourself and your family. You stop at nothing and allow nothing to block you from living a life you truly love!

So often, we set out to do all the things we love and soon realize that some element suffers, usually ourselves. It doesn't have to be this way and I can show you how you can do & be it all ... and still have time for yourself!
What's Your Plan?

Seriously, take a moment and answer that question. Do you know what it is that you want out of life? Do you know how to go about getting that? Do you know how to organize and maintain everything else in your life so that you actually have time to do & get what you REALLY want?
No? Well then, how do you expect to get what you want? I got this one ... you don't.
It's really very simple. If you have no idea of what you want or how you can get it, chances are you won't get it. It will continue to feel like a dream. Something that you have to be asleep to actually enjoy or even believe in. What you should know is that absolutely A.N.Y.THING that you want in life is possible and the necessary second step is to believe it. When you believe it, you expect it. When you expect it, you align yourself with everything that comes with it.

Notice whats missing yet? ... "IT"

In order for you to believe in something you have to know exactly what "it" is. You have to know that "it" is possible and the only way to do is to figure out how it can be possible.
The absolute first step in getting what you want is to KNOW what you want.
