My days at Virgin Lane as a little girl are filled with memories of you…I am happy that on my last visit to DCA I got to see you, and hug you, and kiss you…You were ours for a time, but his forever. Go on to glory and be his angel. Rest well, my love. Until we meet again…RIP Aunty Ruthie.
So…I just got in from work. I kicked off my kitten heels, and jumped right in front of my MacBook. I have something on my mind that I want to share, and I hope my readers can relate because this is coming from the realest place.
I’ve been tying to preach the importance of Trust in all relationships (intimate and otherwise). To me Trust all starts with the old adage “Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say.” If you can’t master this then, you can’t be trusted 100% – point, blank, period. Also fundamental when establishing trust is sound principles. It’s important that in all relationships (again, intimate or otherwise) that we establish, fully understand and value certain principles.
Lately I’m finding it hard to say “I Trust You”…and I honestly believe that the reason for this is the absence of the above listed foundations. I’ve been jaded, needless to say, but I am forgiving and I am trying to get passed it and build trust in the people around me again. And I am not going to lie, it is damn hard! Especially when we set goals and targets, and anticipate milestones, only to be let down. Its…HARD!
I feel like I am slowly running out of ways to get the people around me to understand this…and to step their game up in this regard.
Anyway, thanks so much for reading. I hope you all have a wonderful evening. I’m off to unwind and prepare dinner. Until next time…
March was a nightmare, and I have been fighting long and hard to get my life back to what it used to be. I felt the need to be back in control of…EVERYTHING! Then in came April and everything became clearer. It is now 14 days in, I am feeling great!
Happy Birthday to TLOML!
Happy to have celebrated with you.
Thanks for allowing me to be there.

I am home today. Didn’t go to work because I really feel like crap. Feels like I’ve been hit by a bus – literally. My body is hurting. Honestly, it’s a combination of 2 things – the nasty-a** bug/cold going around and mental stress – I suffer from headaches a lot. Largely the cold, but I feel mentally DRAINED! Not the best place to be given that the last compulsory module of my MBA started last week, and I am already a week behind – and let’s not forget my full time job! The past 2 weeks were hectic at work! My boss was out of office during that time and I had to work twice as hard to keep things in check in my department. Great experience, just felt like the wrong time though. I survived. Got all required tasks done – and then some. Yay to me!
On the not so great side of things, I feel like I’ve lost the focus and control – and by extension, independence – in my life. My eating has gone back to what it used to be around this time last year – HORRIBLE! Although I haven’t gained a lot of weight, food is still my kryptonite, and the sooner I find my own way to control that the better I’ll be. I see a WW re-sign up in my very near future.
No more details. No more fussing. I need to think of solutions, which is exactly what I’m going to do.
I gotta get my issh together, and FAST too!
Lots of Love,
