New baby, new beginnings and a recap of December

I know its been a really long time since I updated you on the goings on in my life. But here I am to do just that. I have to say that December was one of the busiest and most interesting months of last year for me.
First, my dearest cousin/sister (I call her my sister because our fathers are twins and so we are very close), gave birth to the most beautiful girl. This was on 5th and her name is Crystal. She is awesomely pretty and so loveable. That was the beginning of a great month.
Second, I started and quit a new job within the same month. I started on the 15th and quit on 21st after discovering that it was not what I was looking for. Nothing more to say on that. I then went to visit my parents for the entire Christmas time, had awesome fun and now am back to my normal life.
Did I even tell you that am single?? Don’t even get me started on that but I will you in as life continues to unfold.
Now there you have it, an update on what is happening in my life right now.
I think I forgot to mention that I am Happy!!!!!Have a great week ahead.
Love you!

Letters to my Future Husband #2

Too soon, ha! But I cant let this go right now. I feel like I have to write to him again. So here goes letter no. 2.

Dear {FH}
Hi, hope your weekend is going well. I have missed you so much and just wanted to talk to you a little bit. You know, it makes me happy when we talk, or rather when I talk to you. It only makes our connection stronger and our love deeper.
Today, I want to tell you a little fun fact about myself. Yeah, I think you should know am a fun girl. This means that I love to play around, smile, giggle, laugh and just be goofy. I will look for any and every opportunity to play around with you. I do this all the time with my friends. I just know that when people play, life becomes easier and less stressful. So, please my lovely husband, I hope that you love playing too, so that we can have fun together.
It is also good for you to know that I love partying. Others may think that am not much of a party girl but I actually love parties with friends. Actually, tonight am attending one and I know am gonna have lots of fun. I love dancing, you should know that too. I hope you do too coz if you dont, am in a lot of trouble. If you refuse to dance with me, I will dance with other people and I can do that all night long. I really love dancing and am really praying you feel the beat too.

Yeah, I think so too.

Anyway, sweet love, I hope you have yourself a great weekend and take care. On this end, I will have fun but I will be praying that I see you soon coz you are in my heart and in my mind always.
Lots of love and Kisses
{FW}.

My sweet readers, hope you have a fantastic weekend too.

Letters to my Future Husband #1

Hi my lovelies. So I have been toying with this idea for sometime now and I finally decided to take action upon it. I am 24 going to 25 next year and I dream of getting married soon. The posts titled letters to my future husband will be journals that I want my future husband to read in future. I therefore hope to keep writing them not only on this blog but in my diary as well. I wont preserve these posts for any specific day of the week but whenever I get the nudge, I will write another one.

Dear Future Husband {FH};
Hi my Love. I hope you are doing well. This is the first of a series of letters that I hope to write to you as I await our meeting. One thing that I want you to know right now is that I have always thought of you. I have had many dreams, since I was a very little girl of the kind of husband that I want. Maybe I have already met you or maybe I have never even laid eyes on you but I know you are gorgeous. I appreciate you in every sense of the word as I know you are the other piece of me.
When I dream about you, I see a person who is so much stronger than they know, since they have been able to wait for me all this time. I know you have gone through many life experiences and wondered whether you will ever find me but I want you to know that I am here. I have been through a lot too but all that has just prepared us for the life we have been dreaming of. I know our meeting is perfect. God could not have allowed to meet if it were not the perfect timing and this is why I appreciate any delays in knowing who you are and what you are all about.
I love you my sweetheart. I have loved since the day I knew that I understood marriage and all that concerns it. One thing that I have been told is that I love very deeply and that is the way I love you. I give love my all and that is what I give to you. You are awesome and all I can say is that I cant wait to know you, play with you and love you but most of all I just cant wait to kiss you. I hope you have a great day today.
Yours truly,
Future Wife {FW}.

Am participating in the Tag Along Thursday Blog Hop at Miss Mommy. Hope you join too.

Tuesday Ten

Today am joining up with Nicole at Miss Mommy in Tuesday Ten.
My ten things today are things that God wants me to remember always:
1. I am never alone.
2. He loves and always will, no matter what happens.
3. Things will always turn out right if I believe.
4. Love is the greatest commandment of all.
5. I can tackle everything that I come across.
6. He knew me even before I was born and therefore is always with me.
7. His angels are always guarding me.
8. I am awesome.
9. He is all powerful and therefore nothing is beyond his reach.
10. He is the Source of everything good, all I have to do is Ask.
Hope you remember these too. God is always with us, no matter what.

{Allowing, Allow, Allowed}

al·low/əˈlou/

Verb:
  1. Admit (an event or activity) as legal or acceptable.
  2. Give (someone) permission to do something.

Allowing is one thing that I have thought about for days and days. The kind of allowing I am talking about is the idea of giving permission to do something. It is the opposite of resistance.
Sometimes, when I just sit and start thinking of the days when I felt down or low or negative or just there, I find that I was holding some kind of resistance.
For example, when I let my roommate in campus make me angry by saying evil things about my friends. I figure out that I was allowing her to directly talk bad about my friends to me. I gave her permission to do so and therefore I resisted any good that could have come out from my conversations with her. I resisted the good, and therefore I gave permission for the bad to enter into my life.
Sometimes, we become so accustomed to resisting good that we search for things that will make us feel bad or guilty or sad. Some of us are addicted to bad. Every time they think, every time they speak, they allow more negativity, more sadness to infiltrate their lives.
But, is it possible to always allow the good?

It is absolutely possible to allow good in whatever we do. The only thing we gotta do is look out for ways and activities that will make us happy. When I find myself, resisting good and allowing sadness to infiltrate my life, I try to focus on the good things in my life. The things that I have been blessed with, the most important being life. My ability to breathe freely and to be healthy. That alone is reason enough for me to focus on good.
When we allow good, we let go of the idea that we should control everything and everyone. When I allow (give permission) good, I let God shower his blessings upon my life.
And suddenly, I become more aware of the different opportunities that God is opening up for my expansion. For my eyes to see and for me to experience in greater and more satisfying detail.
Allow good today, Let it infiltrate your life and stop resisting its impact upon your life.
I allow happiness, laughter, smiles, joy, abundance, success and satisfaction to enter my life now.

The Pain comes crashing…

When am almost sure am feeling better, the pain comes back with such a pang that I can hardly breathe
I have taken pain killers and put on music that I love,
But nothing seems to make things better,
I have tried working and I cannot concentrate,
I have read all of the blogs I follow, searching for inspiration,
The best friend says she is on her way but she is not yet here,
I keep trying to cheer myself up but It is so difficult.
The pain of being lied to, the pain of knowing that someone you have loved for three and a half years,
The person I thought would be with me forever,
The one who I ran to when I had a problem,
The one who took care of me when I was sick,
The one who promised to love me forever
The One, no longer cares about you and would lie to you just to satisfy their own selfishness
The one is no longer your prince charming.
and it might be time for me to say goodbye.
The pain and the tears, how do I stop them from flowing?
How do I stop my heart from aching so bad?
How do I stop the stomach pangs?
When I thought you were the One for me????

I love this song and thought I would share it with you (yellow is my fav color too)

Oh how Pinteresting – Romance

If you knew me, you would know am a hopeless romantic. Lets just say, I love being wooed and pursued. I love the mystery that comes with romance like being pulled to a wall suddenly and kissed really nicely. It brings butterflies to my stomach and I love them. I just love what it feels like, the creativity, the anticipation. I could go on and on but lets just join Michelle at The Vintage Apple for some really romantic pins.
Hope you enjoy.
