An Actual Life: The New Daily Routine

            


If there's anything I hate more than small talk it's when everyday life becomes mundane.  This perturbs me to NO end, making me even more melancholy.  During the past few months, it has been increasingly challenging to keep myself actively engaged in everyday life.  What's so frustrating is that when I had a daily routine, I was upset because I didn't have time to do the other things I wanted to do.  I felt like there was so much I was missing; if I could just move some things around...Why is it that now that I have all the time in the world, I'm not able to find one single thing to do?!

The answer to that question is the many years of social programming we have been subjected to that teaches us that there is no value in a day that doesn't include work.  Every other activity in our lives has been ostracized and categorized as EXTRA; in other words, UNNECESSARY.  In turn, we automatically develop an aversion, to the point of guilt to any such thing.  The status quo would lead us to believe  that there is nothing more necessary in life than having a job and making money.  If Quarantine has taught us anything, it's that LIVING is our most important priority.  Our days are to be filled with stimulation for our minds.  We should be able to bring the things that make us happiest IMMEDIATELY to mind.  We shouldn't have to ponder it.  This is the life I want, and have come to EXPECT.  I no longer want the burden imposed on me by outside forces to believe and embrace the idea that work is the only form of "beneficial" productivity.  I'm going to de-program myself!  NO MORE!!  I will use my time to discover new things about myself, and enrich my happiness bank.  I spend so much time making withdrawals just to get by on a daily, I never stopped to realize how dangerously low and depleted my balance had become.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking charge of your life in pursuit of what sets your should on fire.  Moreover, you should never be made to feel guilty for loving yourself, and the life you choose to build.  Give yourself a reason to smile everyday.  You absolutely deserve to know PRECISELY what that feels like.  We are not machines, therefore, you should not be putting the pressure on yourself to perform systematically day in and day out.  Anything that brings you joy is ESSENTIAL to your existence, and necessary to your survival.  Use this time to become devastatingly fabulous, and NEVER look back.~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 theminsjournal.com 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
