Happy Friday! New Affirmation

The weekend is finally here!!  And the weather is supposed to be pretty decent so I'll be hitting the streets fo' sho'!

I finally got back to reading, I had slacked off after I had Cayden still trying to learn to balance my time and use free time wisely.  Now I'm back at it, I have things pretty much down packed and I've gotten my butt back on the METRO so that's great reading time.  I had gotten half way through Russell Simmons's Super Rich book and I picked back up where I left off.  I have found me another daily affirmation to add to my few I say each day, or most days.

"Your only true job is to be awake and focused in the moment.  The results of that work belong to God"

I need to say this just about every hour!  This section title in the book was 'Let Go of The Results' and I definitely need to work on that.  We oftentimes focus on how much money we will make, if we are making what we think we should make, will people hear us or ever notice our efforts and that takes away from focusing on the task at hand.  And it also makes us give up if we don't see the results by the time we feel we should.  Whether it's taking care of your home, working at your job, starting a business just focus each day and don't worry about the results and they will be more than expected.  Each step prepares you for the next. I am going to try my best to continue reading, it really gets my creative juices flowing and my braining moving!

I'm Officially HOOKED!!

So I'm sure I'm probably the last person on early to become addicted to Scandal but I'm HOOKED!!  I did not watch the show last season but I just caught up on all the episodes from this season and Keri Washington aka OLIVIA is the shxt!!!!  She handles her business!  It's just crazy because a lot of this stuff makes you wonder how much of this goes on with politicians and other officials???  I always thought everyone was crooked but this show shines a whole different light on how things can disappear, be covered up and manipulated.  My homie Buffie put me on to the show and I'm so glad she did!  My Mom loves the show too so now we have more to talk about on our ride to work tomorrow!  Let's hope I can stay up until 10 and not fall asleep.

I'm so proud of Keri Washington!  I've been a fan of her since Save the Last Dance and she played the hell out of her role in I think I Love my Wife!  I love seeing our black women in powerful roles on tv, even though some things may not be morally right but when you are dealing with crooked individuals you have to play the game they play or you won't survive! 

Kids Style!

OMG!  This little guy is so cute!  I love his hair outfit and just everything about this pic!  I was talking to someone about wanting my little guy to have a bush for a little while.  He'll DEFINITELY have a haircut later on down the line but I'm feeling the wild style fro!  I think his will turn out like this little boys...I am in love with overalls, they keep kids young and fun looking!  Just wanted to share...yesterday, I saw some glasses like these online that I wanted to order loving this look!  I'm a fan of Jordans and big boy clothes but I want my baby to know how to switch it up sometimes especially while he's young.  Then when he is older he will know how to dress based on the occasion.

If You Are Going to Worry...Don't Pray

I'm sure many of us can relate to this!!  I soooo needed this post the other!  One of my fave people, June Ambrose, posted this on her Instagram page and it came right on time!  I am dealing with a few issues that are out of my control which is nerve wrecking to the controlling Aisha...Lawd give me strenfff!  Life has a way of throwing everything at you all at once....either all the good or all the bad , or what we assume to be bad.  It's just hard to not worry when you have been waiting on certain situations to get better when you have been waiting for extended periods of times...meaning years!  But I have to remember God has it and we always forget to look back at how far we have came instead of looking at trials at the present moment.  Just how we moved forward in the past, we will do the same at the moment and in the future.  These setbacks are just memories to allow us to experience joy when we move on to the next step.  Do as much as you can, give as much as you can give then after that just Pray and DONT Worry!

He got us....I believe that

WE DID IT....AGAIN!!!!!!!!

Soooooooooooooooo the Obamas are back in the White House and I couldn't be more excited!  This family as a whole has endured such criticism, disrespect and not mention racism.  Obama has cleaned up 8 years worth of mess and has made so many changes without the help of Congress so just imagine what he could do if both parties could work together!  At the end of the day, people need to realize it's not about race it's about coming together so EVERYONE can benefit.  Each person matters, not just the rich and everyone has their own unique ways they can contribute to society if given a fair chance.  So I'm glad I can say I did my part in getting Obama back into the White House and I hope you did as well.  I love the Obamas as a couple!  They pray together, party together, work together, parent together and compliment each other very well!!  They definitely give us hope...not just blacks but society as a whole!  I just wish some people would become color blind then they too will understand the love and respect his supporters have for him, his values and his hard work!  CONGRATS AGAIN!!!!

Cayden was knocked out sleep before the winning numbers were in but we had a ball waiting on the results!

Not Yet....

Has anyone else ever had a "not yet" moment?!?!  I'm speaking of those times when you have been patient, you have done everything you can do and you are ready to throw in the towel....then out of nowhere something happens to stop you from giving up to let you know "not yet"!!  don't give up just yet!  Maybe it is a relationship where you are just at a loss of words or actions then that person does something for you to make you remember why you love them so much!  That's a "not yet" moment...or if you have applied to countless jobs with nothing to come of the situations and you go on strike!  Then a friend says they know of a place who's hiring...another "not yet" moment.  When God has something for you, he was to strengthen your character, patience and make you appreciate the blessing when you receive it.  So he will have you thinking it's over then send a small sign that says "not yet" but soon...just be patient!  I know I've had a few not yet moments and all I can do is smile.  Almost 7 years ago I prayed for God to work on my patience because I am verrrrry impatient and I can tell you, he's definitely answered that prayer!  So like the old folks say, a delay is never a deny so just hold tight and focus on the good then before you know it you will see all things PLUS more come to pass!

HOLD're almost there!! :-))
