26 and OLD!

tumblr_ncx2v8N96K1sluel4o1_1280

My 26th is coming up in a few weeks and as excited as i am to add more years to myself, i can’t help but wonder how far i have come through out the years. A few years back, if some one asked me my ideal day, i wouldn’t hesitate  and answer – visiting my bffs, lots of laughter and talking, shopping, eating and partying all night with my favorite girls and boys. That was my ideal day. I loved seeing my people and hanging out at all these social events, trying to fit in and meeting new people and i thought that was the meaning of a good life.

Fast forward to today where the rest of the world is clubbing or at social events and hanging out, my favorite pass time is my series and movies in bed with coffee or juice and snacks. It was quite the strange feeling at first – that feeling that am lazy or just anti social or better yet OLD (you know my friends called me that at one point), but as i grew, i loved it and i enjoy it so very much. Don’t get it wrong, i do love getting out in crowds once in a while but i enjoy my inner circle more now; people who share the love i have for them with me. I now understand the theory of YOUR GOALS GET MORE PERSONAL AND LESS MATERIALISTIC AS YOU GROW but also CIRCLES GROW SMALLER AS YOU GROW. It comes back to more substance and less quantity.

I just love and treasure the small and simple things in life now and spending my time and energy on the simple things that i once took for granted. Simple things like reading,  birthdays at home or dinner and lunches, family time, love time and especially ME TIME. I normally disturb my sisters and ask for SISTER TIME because i just enjoy hearing their giggles. I actually like less crowds and more intimacy now.  I love exploring my hobbies like baking, healthy living, cooking or blogging and i am unapologetic for that. Yes i am 26 – beautiful, strong and “OLD” at heart and loving it.

Thank you to the readers

thank-you-01
Two of my fave hobbies and leisure time activities is reading and writing. Yes! my Pre-school teachers taught me well.LOL! But writing and typing is what makes me happy..Its my own kinda therapy!So blogging is my best pass-time! Sharing thoughts and little ideas with people is the best invention geniuses came up with because my diary was getting done and my pen was starting riot and complain of the constant jotting down! But the fact that people take time to read my blog still amazes me and i thought it right to thank you for reading. THANK YOU.

Get Some Standards

l_0cfd6520-dabc-11e1-a793-453613400008
We all have issues with something in our lives but today,i decided to take my friend’s advice and be spontaneous and honestly i loved what i saw in the reflection in my mirror staring right back at me. We all have days we think the best or worst of ourselves BUT today was one of those in-between days. One of my BEST books is “Act like a lady. Think like a man” and i just love the way Steve Harvey describes men’s attitude towards attitude and standards women willingly exhibit. Well am no expert but my opinion is what you give is what you will get. Simple but true. I keep telling my friends “I am many things but i get exactly what i want, at the time i want, especially with my standards for people” I am such a fan of the phrase “Don’t lower your standards for no one” because at the end of the day, its up to what makes you feel beautiful within. Don;t get me wrong, but of course there are some circumstances which can force one to change their standards. The people who love you for you, will always find a way to reach up to your standards (do’s and don’ts), no matter how high they are. The beauty of life is that when you surround your self with the right people for you and your standards in life, negativity will slowly vanish away from your life. Never change who you are for anyone. Stay true to yourself and your beauty will shine through.

Book Club Wednesdays

My BFF recommended this book for my book club and trust me, i have never looked back. Sherry Argov’s Why Men Love Bitches delivers a unique perspective as to why men are attracted to a strong woman who stands up for herself. With saucy detail on every page, this no-nonsense guide reveals why a strong woman is much more desirable than a “yes woman” Read and love it.
