SEX Life

Thought this was something nasty so you decided to read it, didn't you???

How many of you have ever been tested??? Not many huh... It is important for all sexually active individuals to get tested.

Have multiple partners??? Don't always use protection??? Well, what are you waiting for???

  • Over one million people in the United States have HIV.

  • More than a half million people die every year after developing AIDS. AIDS killing people so rapidly.

  • Over 2 million people in the world die from AIDS every year.

Don't hesitate. Act NOW.

Food, Travel, Adventures... I'm about THAT life!

My friends know that when you say try a new restaurant, I'm down (unless I've tried being that I find the new spots first LOL). When it comes to trips, I'm going (And most likely planning them). As for adventures, count me in!

I am a suitcase packing, ziplining, foodie. I love the outdoors and doing exciting things. I am not a clubber, but when invited out, I'll go and cut a rug (or so I think lol). But this isn't about me. This about people who do nothing and go nowhere. Come people live a little!

I have some friends that are so content going to the same restaurants over and over again. Or travelling to the same places. Every summer you can catch them in Ocean City, MD. I mean that's cool and all, but can you at least try Virginia Beach??? I won't say Miami just yet, gotta take baby steps. Also, can we please go to a restaurant besides TGI Fridays for your birthday?!?!

Just wondering...

Maximize YOUR Potential

Enhance your knowledge.
Enhance your health.
Enhance wealth.

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.” - William Faulkner

We often times compare our success to our peers, our parents and people surrounding us without realizing their potential is different from ours. Their life path is not the same as our own. I have to remind myself to be the best me I can be. 

I have recently started to monitor and track my progress in life through a journal. I take notes on things I have done and want to done. I push myself harder in everything I do. I push myself to read more, grow more and be more. When working out I don't look at the people around me. Their endurance is not the same as mine. I am my own competition and I have to give all I can for myself.

Be the best you, you can be!

When Social Networking Becomes TOO Much

I recently got off Twitter & Instagram. I didn't delete my pages, just removed the apps from my phone (the device in which most of my partaking took place lol) and I made it my point not to access either from my computer. It's been about two weeks now. I'm doing good. I feel less annoyed.

I had to remove myself because I was tired of reading negative posts from friends/associates on there. I was tired of people using it as a diary or a place to rant. Get a diary... Or a blog (Hence, the rants I post on here). But using TEN 140 character posts to explain your anger, frustration, sadness or drama is a bit much... TOO much if you ask me.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE social media. I just hate to read posts from people who never seem to have anything good to say. Yes, I could remove all those people, but they don't always come with negativity. Sometimes those very people come with post that interest me or that are vital and offer some good to the world.

How long I'll stay off, I don't know. When I'm good and ready, I'll go back. I do miss seeing pics of the exciting things taking place in my friends lives or some of the good that comes from social media, but my sanity matters most.

Give Without Expecting

“The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” ~Samuel Johnson

This lesson has been a hard one for me to learn and I'm still working on it. You have not mastered the art of giving unselfishly until you have given to someone who can do nothing for you.

One of my favorite songs "Tell Him" by Lauryn Hill includes the line, "Make me unselfish without being blind." This is the next step of the lesson. This is where the ultimate test is given. You have to know when you are being taken advantage of and then determine where to draw the line.

Have you mastered this art?

That was my tidbit for now... Toodles =]

Dating... Is it a lost cause???

The following passage was posted on Instagram the other day and it really got me to thinking... Check it out.

**Excuse the language. Focus on the content.

I personally find some truth to this passage. I have experienced all of the above. I've been on both sides of the field here. Why do we all do this???

When did dating become this way. What happened to just expressing your feelings and being upfront. And the crazy thing is people are so quick to say they don't "play games". Stop!!! Everything listed above is a game. It's just become an "acceptable game". 

It would be nice to get back to the art of dating and less of the "game playing". But how do we accomplish this when things like the passage above are so deeply embedded in us?

This describes me to a T!!!

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” ― Marilyn Monroe
