Honestly Ma’am

Today’s post is a little different. As I embark on this new journey as a doctoral student, I am excited to where it ends: Doctor of Education degree. I am working and enrolled in graduated school, pursuing my Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership with emphasis in K-12 education. At the same time, I just recently experienced the most honest conversation with a loved one. It really pained me to say the truth to them. However, I was emotionally exhausted. I believe I have held in my truth for so long that my emotions have been shut down.

I can not believe I waited so long to finally say, finally what my TRUTH WAS!! I poured out my feelings and my only response from this family member was, “Thanks for your honesty.” When someone consistently hurts your feelings, and you pour out your heart, and this is their response, it’s not you (that has the problem), it’s them. I know know that I am not the crazy person. I am growing and trying to better myself as an adult. I wish everyone will see their path to an healthy adulting journey.

On the other side, I am finishing the first class in my doctoral journey and I am excited and scared at the same time. Never fear! The journey Ma’am is all worth it. Have you ever experienced a tough conversation? How did you handle it?

Sick, blogging and Instagram love for Thursday, Feb 7, 2018

  • You understand the drill, wake up, go to work, feel sick, go to the doctor, come home. Next day, the same thing. Well today, I am home with an upper respiratory infection and fever. It’s really crazy how much of a difference going to an Urgent care clinic is from going to the emergency room. Plus, it’s cheaper to go to the urgent care clinic versus going to the ER. I am stuck for two days in bed.
  • Am I sad!!! No way, Mardi Gras 2018 is next week and school is out for the entire week, next week. I have began my Mardi Gras 2018 holiday two days early. The only down turn is my students were working on their Mardi Gras Shoebox Floats and of course, I miss them.
  • This morning my Instagram, postings are up. Of course you will see more but on that I am loving early this morning is from the fashion doll and wife of Media Mogul Steve Harvey, is Marjorie Harvey. Her social media is the bomb.com in a good way. Her fashion eye is first class.
  • Next, Lady Oprah is serving Love in her SuperSoulSessions and SuperSoulConversations events.
