Last night, for the longest time in ‘I don’t know how long’ I spent about three hours on Skype with two girlfriends. We talked. A lot. About many, many things including social media and perception. As the conversation grew wings and took on varying subject matters, I listened to how they felt about perception, online identity and what people thought about them when the conversation turned to social media and being who you ‘post’ to be.(more…)
My Greatest Fear is a Life Un-lived.
Who told you you’re going to get 50, 70 or 90 years of life? If you knew you would die at 40, would you approach your life the same way? If you knew you have a disability at 30 or 40 years old, what would you do differently? You see, it’s my belief that far too many of us approach life like it is a destination rather than a journey.(more…)
Blogging is not a sprint. It’s a marathon.
I read that somewhere this week, and it might have been the kick I needed to jump start my engine. See, since this quarantine thing started, I’ve opened a blank page to write a blog post a couple of dozen times, but always end up closing the page several hours later just as blank as it was when I opened it.(more…)
Hey guys! As you know the Libra weekend celebrations in the Reid household are now a thing every second week in October. . This year, we spent our weekend at Royal Decameron Club Caribbean Resort in Runaway Bay, Jamaica.(more…)
Hey, guysss! It’s Q4 already. The final quarter or 2019. I hate to say it, but I’ve found myself in a dry patch where blog posts are concerned. I am at a loss with topics and though I try not to ‘post just to post’, that’s exactly what I’m doing right now and I have no idea where this post is going. I wanted to connect with you guys on a conversational level. Just to see how everyone is getting on.(more…)
Hey guys! I thought I’d do something a little bit different with this blog and share household items and products I’ve been loving and using for some time now. I’d been on a YouTube dry spell for while and as I catch up the other day, I realized I am really into house decor and all that. I also have a growing excitement when I go to the store and spot really cute, chic household pieces that are for decorating. (Old age, is that you?)(more…)
Her face scrunched as she expelled all the contents of her lungs. Her mouth wide, tears in her eyes, and the hanging, pink epiglottis danced violently at the back of her throat. Her stance said she was ready for war, but my mind said I was too as it raged and raced at the child before me. I understood her position, but I thought it no excuse. My temper flared. Hers sprouted wings and soared.(more…)
It’s six am. I’ve just woken up to find myself without the top I wore to bed. It’s strewn on the floor telling me that at some point during the hellish heat I most likely peeled it off. I do remember sweating and being restless, Tibby tossing and turning, trying to manage the fan’s direction and Tibby’s position. I remember several times turning on the AC to cool down the room but not daring to fall asleep while it’s on because… JPS! The worst part is, it rained yesterday. A lot, but that didn’t stop the heat from attacking last night.(more…)
One beautiful Sunday morning, I felt the need to get out of the house. After a few minutes, we settled for going to Cane River, St. Andrew, a hidden gem with a waterfall. We drove through St. Andrew rather than St. Thomas, and may have gotten a little bit lost before getting there. After a few twists and turns, we got there; realizing upon arrival that we had ventured there over a year ago, but wasn’t able to enjoy it then because there had been a downpour and the proprietor’s advised against braving the water. So, second time’s the charm.(more…)
