LIFE GOALS ON 💯

diw back

So I have been focused on a few life altering things that have been in the best interest of not only bettering myself being able to allow my future self to provide for my daughter and family. Well a few years ago I made plans to fix facets of my life that I felt were in such need of improving that I knew I could not ignore them any longer. Well I looked at the spiral that was my life sometime 10 years ago to fix my finances, my faith, my passion, my family, my fitness, etc. I had just exited yet another shitty relationship (not my last mind you) and I knew that then and there I had to get shit back on track.

So I spent the about 2 years juggling work and single-motherhood with my plan set in motion to better my life. I started a business and even got my book off the ground.

And then boom….animated44.gif

Life happened! As it always does. Despite starting a business and pondering another venture that would take more than I was prepared for, I lost my job. But what hit me hardest was losing my grandmother and an unborn child for the 2nd time. I was hesitant to admit it but I was crushed. Aside from that things with the rest of my family wasn’t peachy either. But this blog isn’t about that. It is about today and the life changing moment I had on the way from Starbucks.

As I sipped my Frappuccino, I listened to a motivational speaker and started thinking about my passion: my writing.

20180612_151945_hdr-12005681218.jpg

I started blogging and writing little short stories. I started feeling some kind of resemblance of the me that was in 2007. That pre-30s writer who was full of fire. But it came and went. Life got in the way so much that I wouldn’t post as often as I wanted or I would write only to have shit sit in my drafts. But at least I was writing? Right? I set a goal to do about 500 words a day. It didn’t matter if my novels weren’t getting fleshed out. I was just happy to have words to write. I modeled my passion after my mentor, Stephen King. If this man could initially commit to 1000 words a day until later cranking out way more. I could do 500…even if it was something that had nothing to do with my books.

On to my finances. Now my credit score at one point was cool, ranging somewhere in the high 600’s and climbing but about 2 years ago right around the time when I was working my car share service (which was a hit until my car damn near fell apart…literally). I had to park it up and take temp jobs through Robert Half just to pay bills.

Did I mention that my kid was graduating 8th grade? (scrolls up) No I didn’t. Yeah she was about to enter high school and her tuition was behind and that car I was using to make a living that died… well I fell behind on the last 5 payments or so. Man shit had got so bad and so fast.

.animated39.gif

I was in a fake relationship that distracted me so much from my life that I got engulfed in madness. Finally it ended around the time that I got a new permanent job…woohoo no temping!!

So now what?

Although the temp jobs were enough to keep things afloat and allowed me to pay bills, it wasn’t enough security. I did not want to be stuck like I had with one assignment ending and another nowhere in sight. Well last year, the security of a new gig gave me hope…well some!

I wasn’t out of the woods. Something needed to give and fast. As I strolled to work, I started analyzing life. I figured that my finances were my best bet. Well I looked at my debt to income ratio. I looked at what I could pay off first, what I could do without and I made a plan. After buying a new car at a high rate last year, and my student loans coming off of forbearance, I knew that I needed to make some smart choices and fast.

Well I continued car note payments and paid off revolving credit cards that I had. I opened one to increase the available credit I had on my credit reports. Made payments here and there. Finally!! I saw a light at the end of the tunnel. I’m not done but for the first time in probably this last decade, my credit score was in the 700s. But I still had to keep going. With my funds tightly budgeted, I started forging better, less impulsive spending habits. I was still check to check trying to catch up the shit-storm that I was in but then again, I was saving my funds so not bad. Best of all, I did it without borrowing money I knew I couldn’t repay. But still I needed work.

Back to my fitness…well I was already exercising regularly. It was time to go back to making healthier food choices and stop stressing. Once that got in order, I saw results and I felt better. Life was still a spiral but at least 2 things on my list were coming together.

And then it happened… I was suddenly a fitness instructor. My love for dancing as a kid, actually started to turn over a new leaf for me. I was helping myself and helping others. It made me feel so good inside, so much that I had to share my motivation with others. I wanted them to know that there was no one path, trick or secret to finding joy. But that it was a plethora of things. It was compartmentalizing of life’s problems and fixing them one at a time. Now, I still have other things that I have to fix and the fact of the matter is that the things I am fixing now are still a work in progress but that wasn’t what made me feel hopeful.

bad boys shit real

Don’t get me wrong, there are somethings I would like to fix in life. Like moving out of my shitty neighborhood, seeing my kid get into college and becoming a success in her own right. I also would like to help my mom get well. So much I want to do. But I had to fix me first. I always had this problem with putting myself first and not paying attention to my needs. But I had to realize that self love is not selfish and more importantly I had to tell my helpful-sided nature that you cannot pour from an empty cup. So while I don’t have all the answers or solutions to others’ problems nor can I be able to help in ways that another may want, I am happy to at least share this newfound joy.

The best thing I think I can do is share my motivation and inspiration in hopes that maybe someone will find the inner strength to get through their own rough patch as well.

I got an email from a literary agent who was interested in my work. It made my day! I mean I don’t know what happened but after that day, my fingers were on fire! I completed a short story, a chapter in my novel and this blog in just 2 days. It was the match that was needed to spark that fire!! Holy Shit… I got my mojo back!

gif_temp-4.gif

So the point of this blog is that while you may have problems that feel overwhelming, it isn’t the end. And while some folks may feel like they have it all, they may not. Importantly, they are not letting it stop them from living and enjoying life. This climb may have been tough but I see the mountain top! It just feels so good to have these goals that are in place in addition to a plan.

Last but not least I got back on my faith but with this different outlook of the universe and the results of the life I’m living being the product of my effort. The most important thing to have with goals are then essential plans to make those goals come to life…even if one at a time. I put my faith in the Creator as well as myself. I looked at the gift I had been given that I had ignored so long ago. It was something my grandmother told me a long time ago that I never revealed to anyone. She told me I had a gift of ministering and inspiring people.

I think I was about 13 or so, giving her this speech about something with hints Biblical quotes and whatnot. She said it made her feel good and that I had a gift.

As I drank that Frappuccino that day, a light bulb went off. I posted a motivational video on social media later that day. It got a bunch of likes, hits and shares. Immediately, I saw and heard my grandma.

Weird…

Finally 2 and a half fucking months before my 38th birthday, I found my purpose…again. At least I think so.

This blog isn’t a go-to-guide at how to fix your life just some inspiration to let you know that you are equipped with the tools to pull yourself out of despondency. You just have to have a vision and a plan. If you can see it and work for it, it can happen. I wanted more than to idolize my mentors, I wanted to later become someone’s mentor. That aside, I started reading old blogs and tapping into that 20 something Rose, the original Drunken Insomniac Writer! I was so inspired and fierce with my words. I realized I had a gift, a gift that even a fucking disability could not deter!

Damn…that Frappucino was everything!

Claiming the Universe

RANDOM THOUGHTS

I know it’s been a while since posting but I have been so focused on specific tasks right about now. Namely one that I won’t reveal just yet. (sorry just wait on it)

I am at a point and place in my life where I am finally manifesting everything I want in and out of life. I have zero fucks left to give if it hurts or offends the next person. Why? Because how many times in life have we put on hold the things that we deserve, need and/or want for another individual who could not make returns on our investments towards them? Too many perhaps! Yes that includes those that would try to but could not and those who had every intention to. Sorry but I can’t feed myself on good intentions.

While I have no problems cheering on others or supporting them in some way if feasible, I cannot allow my own dreams to suffer. I mean what is the point of life if not to live it? Everyone can use support but I never want to look back with regret on the things I didn’t do for myself.

I believe that there is a balance in the universe and if you are too busy trying to tip the scales by waiting on the universe to give while you in turn do absolute shit, well you’re not gonna be happy.

gif_temp-2.gif

While you should never turn down a person in need that you could’ve helped or ever hold anyone else back, ultimately you should not be responsible to clean up everyone else’s fuck ups all the time. I mean where the hell is the accountability in that? I don’t mind helping you get through a rough patch or helping see your dreams come true but we are strongest after pulling our own selves from despondency. It’s like the saying goes, you can’t pour from an empty cup. But this goes both ways… you cannot anticipate others to learn from their mistakes nor cease to repeat them if you constantly enable folks through their problems. And you equally can’t anticipate others to always be your personal savior.

Although I had an idea of the notion of how the universe works, I never did fully understand it. The universe, God, karma, etc. will make returns on your investments but you must put forth something for it to be invested in as well as the effort. You must also pray and speak it into existence too. It’s just like physical fitness. I didn’t get stronger sitting on my ass I had to work for it! And although I may take it slow some days or fall back, my progress is the product of my effort. Besides faith without works is dead. I try to apply that ideology to any other facet in life. If you are tired of feeling empty, find a hobby. If you are broke, stop blowing your money or find ways to make/save better. If you want what you deserve out of this world you must stop playing victim to unfortunate circumstances, work hard as fuck, and claim what you deserve in it. This new change in attitude has created new habits and a newfound appreciation for life. I’m looking forward to reaping the benefits of it.

capture+_2018-06-29-13-28-341826391239..png

Trust me anything is possible!

That being said, I know some of you are thinking, is that thought process selfish? No, because if you ask for my help and I offer said help that I feel is beneficial yet you don’t heed it, then you cannot be mad if the well runs dry later. This irks my soul because folks like this will remain in the same situation repeatedly and will turn right around and ask for help again for the same shit you tried to saved them from before. #sorrynotsorry

I have learned that’s probably the reason why people are so miserable because they sit back and instead of trying to fight through their fuck ups, they play victim. Then when the next person is happy or trying to be happy, here their miserable asses come. Stop doing that people! It’s stupid if not counterproductive to everyone. While I know some people cannot help their mental issues to get past this, they can at some point in a moment of lucidity know that they gotta make a change for the better. Like Mike said, “If you wanna make a change, start with the man in the mirror.” At the end of the day, we must take responsibility for our ways and stop blaming everyone else for our own shit.

.animated43.gif

Ways to be happy:

  • Don’t sit there comparing yourself to others.
  • Don’t sit there bitter because those who hurt you appear happy. (they are probably dealing with shit too)
  • Don’t sit there waiting on a magical handout to help you out.
  • Don’t sit there mad because you can’t get your way (what are you a 3 year old?)
  • Don’t sit there counting your woes and things your are stressed over.
  • Don’t forget the only one who can truly stop you is you.
  • Don’t sit there waiting & preying on me to fail.

Anyways, this blog was not about the fuckery of others but my own. It’s not to fuss about what everyone else is or isn’t doing. I think I will save that for a bitch blog later on. I wanted to take a minute to focus on the fact that I am steadily I have been reaching goals, physically, financially, mentally and emotionally. As well as why I fell off. It was no one’s fault for any of the choices I have made in my teens or young adult life. Because at the end of it all, I have to answer for my shit & ask myself if I did all within my power to make things better. I may not be going at the speed of the hare but I intend on winning the race just as the tortoise did. Over the next few months, I may come off cold but I have some real shit to handle and I am not letting anything except the Most High stop me and even then I will use that to guide me…not discourage me. Roadblocks will come I am sure but and that’s ok. But I will not allow myself to let other people get in my way… including my own self. Now you can sit there and applaud me, be inspired by me or you can hate on me… but what will not happen is anyone stopping me!!!

That being said the woman in the mirror that I see myself becoming is a beast and is giving me the chills and feels… I can tell she moves different!

I gotta get my shit together because I have work to do!

Well Until Next Time Kiddies

The Single Status Sentence

wotw_diw

Although this isn’t really a writing on the wall per se. Still I am tagging it such because this is more than a mere random thought. It pertains to some real world, life shit and that would-be-dreaded life sentence of being single.

Why the hell is it so important to have and to hold? Often I wonder what is the point!

This post was inspired by an interaction I had with some fellow. He wanted to get to know me and honestly, I wanted to be on my way. But when he said he was single and I said that I was too, he quickly responded, let me fix that! Like WHAAAT? WTF? I’m not broken. I knew what his intentions were so I wasn’t upset and so I responded that, there was nothing to fix. Personally I think it’s hogwash!

I don’t think being single or in a relationship is what people make it out to be. Personally for me, I am happy being unhitched. The reason I chose to stay single was because I learned the value of truly loving myself. Besides who knows what you settle on trying to find somebody. Now I am not saying I want to be “alone” forever or shackled up… I am however definitely glad & damn sure I want to be sucka-free and fuckboy free!

I know some of you think that my past relationships have made me bitter but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m actually “better” because I am not upset or pissed about the folks who I devoted my time to. For a while I kicked myself for allowing my time to be wasted. But I look back appreciating the blessing in the lesson. I finally learned what I deserve and what I refuse to put up with. I am just focused on how I spend my time with myself before I concern myself with who. Now some of you who have been single for years on end (or impatiently months) may think it’s the worst thing ever. But not me!

Why?

Because being single is not a life sentence nor is it a status to judge your life by. Being alone is different than being lonely. Being single means you are strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on another soul to create that happiness for you. Besides who is better at knowing what I want?

Me!

While there may be some tasks that are better with more than a party of one. There are ways and friends waiting to be made in the world. Swap it up, hang with a few select folks in your spare time…figure it out. Instead of waiting on someone to do it for you, why not do it for yourself?

We have allowed the world to convince us that doing things by ourselves is bad & codependency is the way to go. That is the dumbest shit ever when you think about it! Now if you have a life partner who you don’t mind being with that makes you happy, that’s awesome. If you have friends that you kick it with, also awesome. If you have things you like to do alone that give you peace, also awesome! And you know what’s ultra awesome about all of those things is that, you can mix them up at the same time…well not exactly…but there is no rule saying that you have to be sired to just one.

We all say it but rarely do we ever actually do what it takes to make our own selves happy. I took a vow to eat better, spend money wiser, be active, stop procrastinating, do things that made me happy and lastly stop stressing. (Working on that last one)

It’s not easy putting yourself first or even on occasion saying no to the things that don’t bring you some kind of peace or flat out irk the living shit out of you.

Yep…you are not required to be involved in everything or with everyone.

Today’s the day that I not only reached a fitness milestone (-30 lbs)

Importantly, 8-9 months ago, I had just got out of a relationship (although it ended without me knowing much sooner…guess that’s how cheaters roll). It took me a while to not be bitter and simmer in the hurt & pain not to mention I use that towards a positive and better me. But the most important thing about today was that it makes 6 months after I truly decided to reclaim myself (I gave myself a month or so to get right). I mean if you don’t love yourself, your inner awesomeness will continue to be blocked by the “need” to be with someone. Not that it’s anything wrong with companionship but let’s face it, loving yourself prevents you from chasing people who won’t or don’t love you either. It also makes you strong enough to wait for the right one…even if Mr/Ms Right is you.

You know when you’re being treated wrong, so why put up with it?

Learn to love your inner Vixen, Wonder Woman or whoever inspires your fire. Just look at me in a year’s time… Changes happen for a reason. And if you don’t believe that, then remember this… If you’re life starts to get better after you leave people and things alone…then you’re on the right track.

Lastly remember being happy is not just a mantra I say, it’s something I intend on staying no matter what the circumstances. I remember looking at myself and whispering you deserve better but never believing it and possibly feeling I deserved it. I rather be solo than be in a fake ass relationship anyway so instead of rebounding or trying to get back on the road towards a spousal horse, I am using the time to grow!

I found myself pissed off recently because someone didn’t understand me and on top of that, we failed to communicate.

Honestly, it’s fucking retarded to be upset or react to another reaction that wasn’t the one you thought you should get. That alone proved I am not ready to be with anybody.

So to that guy, I wasn’t trying to shoot you down because I felt better than you. It was because I am still on my path that doesn’t have room for anyone else yet. I may inspire along the way but the truth is I still have a ways to go. And that goes for anyone…don’t let life pass you by!! Go get your happiness…

Next on my bucket list: Seeing the world, Thrill seeking shit like race car driving, acting & skydiving!!!

Well Until Next Time Kiddies

Avengers Infinity War: An Insomniac Review (spoiler free)

DIW review

After seeing an early screening of Infinity War Thursday afternoon/evening, I was on the wire about doing a review about it because it was tough as is without revealing spoilers.  Not to mentioned that both my daughter and I were actually speechless in addition to me being tired as all hell.  There were so many things that this movie contained (I will discuss that further) and at the same time, there were things that kinda forced me to look back at the last 10 years of Marvel flicks.  That’s one crazy as buildup and in addition to all of that, I was stuck thinking to myself how the hell do I give you my opinion without spoiling anything for you?  Here goes…

THANOS

First of all, if both the Justice League and Thor Ragnarok have taught me anything, it’s fuck the trailers.  Don’t get me wrong they built up expectations and amped me up…so job well done.  But what I’ve noticed is that there is something called post-productions edits or something.  I will accept that without a problem because I know shit changes, gets deleted or added.  Also fine.  I also accept that trailers are only to give you a taste of what’s to come. Also accepted!

But what I hate is that with technology, things get completely changed when you finally sit your ass in the chair in the theater and sometimes changed again when it goes on demand/video.  So what I don’t like to sum it up…is to be fucking lied to. I know it sounds harsh.  But that’s cheating.  Anyway, that’s all I am gonna say about that. Yes, I loved Infinity War trailers and TV spots but those sneaky bastards had me for a second yesterday.
gif_temp.gif
Ok, I got that off of my chest.  Other things that bugged me a bit but I understand was the beginning, after the traditional action-y sequence “Avengers” title card popped up, was that after the 20 minutes into the film was the when the wheels started spinning.  And I say that because this flick pretty much did not waste any time at all. However there was a part of me thinking that it felt crammed all in.  I mean I understand that it’s a decade worth of movie characters plopped together as well as plots that all had to be blended up and worked into this movie itself.  Yet this movie literally gave me no “bathroom break” moments or time to fumble around with the nachos and cheese contraptions.

My eyes were glues to that screen and needless to say, my drink was pretty much untouched once I remembered how long that movie was.  All that being said, Infinity Wars at times felt rushed and agonizing at the same damn time.  Like I am sitting there thinking and hoping when this person was going to link up with that person but also wondering why did they pan away from a particular situation too.  So there was a lot of back and forth.  Also some to the characters didn’t give me the same feelings as they did in prior settings…despite being played by the same people.

But yet none of this took away from the film.  It was a spectacular film.  Considering most of the MCU flicks have had different directors and writers, it’s expected to see them be slightly different.  Thor is a great example of this especially if you judge him by Ragnorok & the first Thor movie and previous Avengers flicks.  Another thing I will point out is that in this flick, and unlike the other films, the stakes are much much higher.  I sat there thinking the whole time… “DAMN…it’s going down now!”
bad boys shit real
The acting and direction (Kudos Russo Bros) did not give me this feeling for no reason.  So the feeling of “blink and you’ll miss it” is forgiven because this isn’t your typical Marvel flick or comic book adaption or even fantasy action movie…the characters on screen know it and you will too.  That my friends is primarily due to Thanos himself.  There is no fucking around with this guy.  Major big ups to Josh Brolin who I’ve adored for a while now (even in MIB 3…lol).  I guess you got it from your daddy!!

Anyways, Thanos is the type of villain I have been waiting for since seeing my first ever comic book flick.  He is not to be played with, he is not wasting time either.  He has a mission and he intends on getting it done…even if it means he knows that his lackeys (as they always do… will fail)  – remember both Avengers movie endings? While Thanos in my opinion never was the standout villain, he is definitely formidable.  And you will see why it’ll take all Avengers heroes to bring him down.  And while he looks like Darkseid and is probably just as powerful….he is not like DC villain.

Thanos does what very few villains do in this movie and each of the heroes know it.  What I also dig about Brolin is that he brings some serious depth to Thanos.  Something that I haven’t seen in the comics or animated movies.  He is more than just a greedy/world dominating/destroying cliche villain.  He has some conflict and you can honestly feel it.  He knows what he has to do and despite not wanting to, he sets out on a mission.  He is not tempted by greed, corrupted the thought of absolute power alone or blinded by rage/love…even if he is in the comics.  The crazy thing is that he feels what his is doing is right. (and on some twisted way, he does have somewhat of a point).

I just wish that his intensity on screen was matched by our heroes.  Not saying that the acting was bad by Iron Man, Captain and crew… I am just saying that Thanos stole each scene…well most of them.  When this dude stepped on the scene, it was like watching a Jason flick…You knew one thing and that was he wasn’t half-stepping or playing games.
.animated39.gif

Despite all of that…this movie had me laughing.  It had the humor you would expect from a Marvel movie.  it had some emotion and heart at the same time.  The feelings you’ve grown to cultivate over the years and the love you’ve had for these characters is there. So expect shockers, twists and turns as well as some cameos.  But just keep in mind this is kinda like Harry Potter, Hunger Games and those annoyingly addictive Twilight movies…  there is more to come next year from the next Avengers Infinity War flick.  Also keep in mind, while it takes characters and elements from previous MCU movies, it is its own baby here.  So while you may want more and you won’t want to get up for a while until you process everything…do those ticket-holders waiting to see the next show a favor…just keep it moving!

You can clap, cry, laugh, cheer…hell you can even kick and scream real quick!
fuck_yo_couch

…just hurry and get up because those ushers have shit to do.  Just keep in mind, it may feel like Infinity War is the end-all-be-all but there are more MCU movies to come.

My opinon is while you don’t have to watch every MCU flick to be caught up… I would advise it. Especially the last few releases and the Avengers flicks.
the mcu

My vote on Avengers: Infinity War… It was Awesome!
it's awesome

The MARVELous Road To Infinity War

DIW review

For any of you living under a fucking rock… there has been the plethora of comic book flicks that has been leading up to this epic showdown of showdowns, The Avengers. Some of you may just see it as a simple cash cow… But for the rest of us who just may be what you call comic-book-fans, this is epic & short of fucking awesome! Don’t judge us, those who you call freaks and geeks. The Whedon Avengers (part 1) blew me away. And this…will be the same! As much as I wanted to like Age of Ultron…for me is was meh… Although James Spader was da bomb… (Yes I’m old) 😂

takemymoney

But for those of you scratching your head, I am taking none other than the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For all of us as kids who watched Saturday morning cartoons or read a comic book, seeing our fav shit come to life on screen is without a doubt amazing. From the black and white days of Superman up to now, people love to see works of art come to life. And I am sorry, some of the things that Stan Lee and company have done are pretty much this age’s Renaissance. Even video games, despite a failure to launch well (except Mortal Kombat & to some extent, Resident Evil) have been brought to the big screen.

That being said, I will be talking about my fav comics-turned-movies as we countdown to Part 1 of the ultimate showdown: Avengers: Infinity War. Be warned since I am still playing with the vlog thing, this won’t my typical rant/rave review blog post but in preparation to one of the most anticipated comic book flicks…In fact for the next few posts that are reviews…I ‘m pretty much gonna wing it…so stay tuned!

THANOS

I will try to keep it short & post all MCU movies leading up to the release of Infinity War in order of release but showcasing my own favoritism. LOL! Hell there’s like damn near 20 movies already released, not including the TV shows so I will NOT be reviewing them all individually.

And although, they are pretty much separated from the actual movies, I will moonlight a little about the TV shows on the side. This was something I wanted to do with DC comics, movies and shows but didn’t have the time to…besides I did a review of the actual Justice League movie with my comic-book-partner-in-crime, (my kid)…which you can check out here. Oh and if you haven’t been on my YouTube channel, which I promise to give regular love to…here is your chance to like, comment & subscribe.
