Happiness on Your Terms

If you are down, what turns it around for you?  Is it music, fresh air, the company of positive people etc?!  But is it really ANY of those things that hold the true power for change?

You know, I find myself the most happy when I am staying TRUE TO MYSELF.  What I find most painful in life is having to endure and live up to the expectations of others.  Oftentimes this can lead to the pursuit of things and opportunities that we are less than passionate about.  

Anne Shirley Cuthbert helped to put me back on track the other day by speaking some of the truest words I have ever heard.  In a nutshell, she said personal success is a guarantee as long as you are in “Pursuit of your Passion”.  Beautiful alliteration aside, this is soooo real.  If you are in perfect sync with what it is you want in life, REGARDLESS of outside influence and what is said, then why is it that you’re NOT the captain of your LIFE vessel?!!


I say this with three question marks because it’s being presented as a question, NOT a FACT.  Facts don’t change.  Facts do not alternate and transform into different ideas.  Fear is a state of mind that can be changed...

Let go of the mentality of failure and take responsibility for your own happiness and the fruition of your dreams.  Sink or Swim, it’s YOUR choice.  Do not let “the air out there” be the final determination of who you are, what you become, and most importantly, the pursuit of your HAPPINESS.  Keep loving yourself, building your mental arsenal, and ENJOYING each breath...learn to FLY.~The Queen~

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
