My Blogging Life

image

They say it’s my 2nd year blogging! Wow, time sure did fly by. I’ve grown over the past two years, or should I say I’ve matured, and it’s partly because of this blog. Blogging has taught me how to release what’s been bottled up. I’ve learned to speak from the heart, be myself, sharpen my writing skills and let my voice be heard. I’ve also learned how to deal with the calling on my life and how I can be relevant without falling prey to sin.

When I first stated this blog, I just wanted to write, I had no particular goal in mind and no guidelines. I’m a girl with a beautiful soul and a creative mind build for storytelling. The beautiful part about my blogging life is that I can always go back to any one of my post for encouragement.

Please stay tuned as I shift gears and start working on my first novella/ graphic novel.

Victoria’s Back!

Hey, I miss blogging on this site! Over the months, I’ve made some changes, launch a business for couples The Soul Match, and I’ve been enjoying my time with my lovies!

Here’s a short list of the things I love, love, love and will be blogging about, so stay tuned!

5. Lipstick. I never really wore it. First off, I thought it made me look old! Hahaha! Next, because I didn’t feel the need to draw attention to my lips, last because of the ingredients. I’ve leaned that it can really boost your confidence. If it can make a mom of three look sexy, then give me every color! Shameless plugger: Have you heard of The Lip BarĀ  they use all natural products yum…plus they have fun colors, they even have a color called “Dark N Stormy,” that’s my husband’s name, Stormy, lol it’s the truth! Can’t wait to kiss him with that color!

4. Bright Colors. I used to stay in blacks and grays never understood why! Now I’m like gosh I love bright colors.

3. My coily hair! No it’s not curly and it’s not straight, it’s Coily! And I love it.

2. Being a mom…that goes without saying. I’ve always loved my kiddos, but as the days go by I’m crushing on them and I see their brilliance and how one day they will change the world.

1. My husband! He’s such an amazing man and he gives me all the attention in the world. I’m blessed beyond measure. He encourages me to write and enjoy time with the kids. He never complains even when I’m up and down or change my mind about an idea, he’s right there in full support! He’s my 🇰🇮🇳🇬 and I adore him! 💋💋💋💋💋 oh and we co-authored a book together…visit The Soul Match for details!

You should write a list, you’ll be surprised what you’ll come up with. It can really help you stay focus on things that matter to you.

Facebook Strike

Every now and then I’ll ban myself from Facebook. It can be distracting at times, especially if you’re an author and need to be writing. I’ve sinced turned off my notifications and haven’t turned them back on because I really don’t care to know what’s going on minute by minute, ahh! I don’t mean to sound harsh, but I don’t get why anyone would want to spend every waking hour on there, lol, ok I’m over it. Let’s just say my mind is expanding. I’m looking to be inspire, cultivated and it will not come from meaningless post and selfies.

I’ve decided to gather around those who have extra notches in their belts. I’m more drawn to LinkedIn, a place of substance. The members are not afraid to connect because they mean business. I don’t have to worry about someone bashing my creativity,  mimicking my style or trying to send me a subliminal message, lol! It sounds childish, but that’s what you get on Facebook, lurkers, doubters, and childish behavior. It’s a time and a place for everything, but when you have deadlines, ambition and dreams you cannot be on there day after day.

This morning I spent am hour on LinkedIn and learn 10 new things I didn’t know. These ten things will help me succeed. I even joined a few groups and made more connections. I cannot get that hour back, so I’m glad I invested it in the right place.

I’m 29, in less than nine months, I’ll be 30. That age for me is very serious. I don’t want to be facing the same struggles or looking at the same scenery. I have five books to publish this year, that’s right two novels and three self helps. I’m giving them all I got and I cannot waste time.

The Vivid Preacher

This Resurrection Sunday, (Easter 2015) my husband spoke a word that not only touched the hearts, but shook the foundation. Without murmuring Christ bore his cross, so we have no excuse being that he’s our example. Never lose heart no matter what you’re facing, Christ has a plan and a purpose for whatever you may be facing. I pray you enjoy Pastor Taylor’s Message.

My motivation is to fit this without any spillage! 😂😜

Sooo since I’m 3 weeks postpartum, I began my Kick Butt workout today.

80 jumping jacks
20 push up
40 sit up
30 sec planks (lol) more like 10 sec
50 squats
20 leg lunges
60 sec wall sit
just to name a few! I was sweating and burning.

And I ended with

10 toe taps
20 kick backs
This is a kick butt workout right! LOL

Lasted all of 10min! I’ll see how it goes.

Will do it 3 days a week (MWF) On top of eating healthy, drinking plenty of water and detoxing.
