My Thoughts - Make Time for Your Parents

Hand In Hand Holding Hands Holding Hands H

I hope everyone's Easter Sunday was great, I know mines was. I woke up this morning thinking about yesterday, and how I spent all day talking to my mother and father. I almost missed this opportunity due to the fact I didn't feel like making the 2 hour drive. I haven't been home this year, and I use to go at least once a month, so I just felt like I should take the ride no matter what. My mom wanted me to come home Saturday morning, and when I told her that I didn't feel like it she said.... "maybe you can rest and come this evening". I was so tired and did not make the ride Saturday, but instead I went to bed early.

I woke up early Sunday morning, and my mind just starting running. It was Easter Sunday, my fiance was in Alabama visiting her mom, and I was laying in the bed alone. God started speaking to me, and I felt it in my heart to get up and take that ride. I am the second to the youngest of 4 boys, and I seem to be the most sensible out of the bunch, so my parents will sit and talk to me for hours. The older I get, the older my parents get, and I am getting old lol. One of my dear friends has a father fighting the last stages of cancer, and she is spending every moment that she can with him. One of my boys lost his mother years back, and it hurts him that he cannot talk to her.

I said all of this to say... spend as much time with your parents  as you can! I can't imagine what my life would be like without the loooong talks with my mom, or listening to the complaints that my Dad has about my mom lol. We only get one set of biological parents, and if you don't know who yours are, spend as much time as possible with the people who raised you. Our parents fed, housed, and clothed us, the very least we could do is go spend time with them. Parents love to see there children when they are full grown and moving on up in life. They like to see the end product, and especially when you are progressing in life. 

We make time for our significant others, our friends, and all types of entertainment, make time for your parents. We never know when God will take them from us, and once they are gone... They are gone. Let's strive to make just as many memories in our adulthood, that we made as children with our parents. No matter what your relationship is or was with them, spend that quality time, and tell them that you love them. Peace and Blessings!

My Budget Journey - Week 1

I actively started my budget last Monday and I have decided to share my weekly progress with you guys, and I must say that I am excited and I am making great progress. I won't share every single detail of my daily life, but I give you updates on how I am doing. I am a little late with this posts so I am going to share my progress from last week. 
My budget  consists of paying all of my bills (gas and groceries included), and giving myself very little pocket change every week. I give myself 10 dollars a week and its really to much because I don't need anything. After all of my bills are paid what could I possibly need? I give myself the $10 bucks just in case I want something like a snack, or for something miscellaneous. 
So last week I stayed on budget other than a stupid emergency that was clearly my fault. I lost my freaking keys at work and I had to go replace them, and that cost me $32. I ate food from home every single day. Not eating out has truly enabled me to stick wi…

My Thoughts - Why Do People Cheat?

This is a topic that I have wrote and read about all to many times. If I can help it this will be the last time I write about it, and hopefully this post will help some of you. I going to keep this real short and sweet, no need for a long post. Women want to know why their men can't keep it in their pants, and men want to know why their women can't keep their legs closed. Your cousin King Braswell is going to tell you in the next paragraph.
Men and women cheat because they want to, and they want to because they are human beings!!! Men like women, and women like men, and they meet other men and women that they like and they do it. The direct reason does not matter, what matters is that they do it. Men are very visual, and they might meet a woman that they are attracted to, so if he feels like its worth the risk he will cheat with that woman. Women like attention, if the right man gives her that attention, she might get in between the sheets with that man.
People do what they w…

My Thoughts- Stop Finger Pointing and Blame Yourself!

I might ruffle some feathers with this post, but fuck it I gotta get this off of my chest. In no way do I condone abuse of any kind, rather it be mental or physical, no one deserves to be abused by anyone! However, if you find yourself going through the same dam thing day after day, month after month, or year after year its on you. If you have not applied any change or action to what needs attention in your life, then you just might like what you are getting, or you are very comfortable.
People come to me all of the time with their problems and I try to motivate them the best I can. Lately I have really been getting overloaded with issues from friends, and most of them have been going through the same thing for years. Most of their problems stems from relationships. Some of them I have cut ties with because they just want to load me up with garbage, and they need someone to co-sign the bullshit that they are doing. The older I get the more that I realize that some of my friends are …
