Let It Go

In life everyone experiences good and bad times. Life is not a smooth road, there are struggles and obstacles, ups and downs. As the holidays are approaching, and the year is coming to an end, I find myself reflecting. While reflecting the point that came to my mind was ‘let it go’. So many times we hold onto disappointments, failures, betrayal, sadness, grief and so much more. What you don’t realize at the time is that you are sabotaging yourself. If the negative moments do not change you as a person, if it does not affect your character and who you are LET IT GO. First off, never give anyone or anything the power to change you or break your spirit and character. You can change you, but no one else. Don’t allow hurt or failures to keep you from moving forward…don’t stay stagnant. The way to move on from the past is to keep pushing ahead. If you are stuck at a negative point, keep moving and look ahead because it does get better. If you are focusing on things you can’t change LET IT GO. What has been has already been, what has happened has already happened. In life we can’t change what has already taken place, but we can control what happens next. You deserve a happy life, and most of all peace. In order to gain your peace you have got to let go of whatever is holding you back from your future. When we continue to focus on the past we miss out on the greatness that is to come. If you can’t change it, leave it behind and keep pushing. No matter what mistakes you have made, or who let you down, everyone deserves to be happy and at peace. Take these last weeks of 2015 to reflect, create a plan of action, and let the past go. Enter 2016 with a positive outlook on your future, and a clean slate on life.

 

Save some “you” for you…

Throughout life we meet many different types of people. Once in awhile you find someone or some people that you connect with on a deeper level, whether it be as a friendship or romantic relationship. If it is a genuine one, you will hold those people close to you, and to an extent go above and beyond for them. The problem with this is that many times we give so much of ourselves to others, that we neglect ourselves. It gets to a point where others’ well being is more of a priority than our own. It is important to step back every once in awhile, and really look at your life and see if you are making decisions that suit you.  Its easy to get wrapped in the role of best friend, gf/bf, spouse etc…so much so that you put your desires on hold or tell yourself you’ll do it later. Later may be too late. You have to keep yourself #1 no matter what. Because the sad truth is that everyone won’t always treat you the way you do them, or be there for you as you are for them. Be genuine, but remember your needs as well.

I don’t call it terrible 2’s…it’s 2 year old madness!!!

So today it was another adventure in the world of a 2 year old. So during potty training time, my toddler took it upon herself to display her artistic skills around the house. And her choice of writing item? a SHARPIE!!! OMG…EVERY MOTHER’S NIGHTMARE. So after asking fellow moms, and googling for a solution online I tried hand sanitizer. To my surprise, it actually worked. So if you’re kid colors the walls with permanent marker, try hand sanitizer- it has an alcohol base and works fine. But before using this solution test it out in a small area to make sure that you are not removing paint from your surfaces. Well that was the highlight of my day, and I chose to share it all with you. Hope you’re day went a little smoother. Thanks for reading and check back for more posts. 🙂

Kids just don’t know… Moms are superheroes we can see the future!!!

Today I’m posting with my mom hat on.  As a child, I never understood how my mom knew exactly what I was doing without physically being present or what I was going to do before I did it. I’ve finally figured it out, Moms are superheroes Duh!!! LOL. Kids today just don’t understand we are psychics. We know their thoughts, actions, and behaviors before they are even done! I can see through walls, I have eyes in the back of my head, and I can even predict the future. I’m better than Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and all my children’s favorite heroes. Unfortunately, not until they become parents will they FINALLY understand that they came from me, so they are me and I know EVERYTHING going on! Mommy moment #1000…just needed to get that out. If there are any mothers who can relate please feel free to comment and share.

Sincerely,

-Mom of 6

Welcome to my world

Hello my  name is Blaque Butterfly and I’ve always had a passion for written expression. I decided to start this blog to just express my feelings and experience about my life. Often times we need an outlet to vent or just share our creativity and this is what I’ve chosen. First off I wear many hats in my life. I am wife, a mother of 6, and a college student…I know what you’re thinking WHAT?!? 6 kids? yes. Growing up as an only child I’ve seen how lonely it can be, and I just want my kids to always have that support system and bond with their siblings, as well as the friends they make in life. So on my blog you will read about relationships, parenting, balancing school and family, and of course everyday things such as fashion, entertainment, travel ideas etc… Like I said there’s a little of everything going on in my life and I just want share with others.
