Here we are once again in the same predicament.
Tangled in bed sheets. Scents of last night still linger.
I promised myself I wouldn’t end up here
After last time I thought it would be easier to get up and leave
But yet here I am avoiding eye contact with you.
Maybe because it means I have to accept the fact you give me the blues.
Two days of freedom to simply be….me.
I’m actually able to laugh and focus on my dreams.
So no I don’t hate you even though you damper my fun.
Monday you just give me the blues.

Detox is described as “a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances.” Although this definition mainly speaks to the physical aspect of detoxing, in my opinion, detoxing can extend to your mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing too. I’m currently in the process of detoxing my life and today I want give everyone a glimpse into my journey thus far.
First on my list was purging toxic people from my life. In many cases keeping company with toxic folks can have some of the same effects as having a drug habit. They can be physically draining, ruin relationships, and generally bring nothing but unwanted stress and strife. Eliminating these individuals from my life has been extremely refreshing by lifting a boulder of negative weight from my heart and mind. I’m no longer keeping those close that did nothing to inspire, uplift, or motivate their own life or mine.
The next step was to remove many of the unnecessary complications from my day-to-day life. The simple things in life have become much more meaningful to me than materialistic things, no matter they be in the physical or digital worlds. I’ve loved the process of rediscovering the joys of having full-fledged conversations and not just interacting with 140 characters or less. Actually sitting across from someone and talking about anything ranging from currents event to future goals has been a refreshing change from reading pointless Facebook rants. Writing, as in pen and paper, has also been very therapeutic. We live in a digital world where everything is done on a screen, but I’ve found that putting my thoughts down on paper or in a journal is soothing and brings back memories of my adolescent poem writing.
This journey I’m on is still very new and I’m learning things along the way. I’m learning that no one has all of the answers so it’s up to me to be open to change and to grow from each lesson. Every day brings another chance to explore my changes to becoming a better person.
This quote holds so much power especially right now in my life. Being a friend isn’t a one sided job TRUE friends are there for the good and bad. TRUE friends don’t have to speak on a weekly basis but still know whats going on in your life. And honestly it is okay to let go of some friendships. I’m done crossing oceans for others when they won’t jump a puddle for me.
I’m starting the week off with a few of my goals/inspirations for the current moment.

Happy April loves! It been a while since I’ve posted but I’m here with tons of exciting things for the blog. April has to be one of my favorite months of the year. From anniversaries to birthdays, this is a jam packed month for me. One of my personal goals for April is to fulfill a vow to explore my creative side more. I love DIY and home décor projects, not to mention my slight addiction to Pinterest-inspired crafts. For me being creative is relaxing and further helps me create a balance between motherhood, being a wife, and working. When I’m threading the tulle for one of my daughter’s tutus or penning the last few lines of a new poem, it’s like a personal escape to focus solely on me and what I enjoy. So this April, I am challenging my readers to take time to create, enjoy life, explore and live each day to the fullest.
