Detox

        So, a detox I think is needed. I’m going to be doing a web series trying particular stuff.
       The first thing I will be trying is the detox. Theres a 12 hr, 3 day, 7 day, ect…ect…ect.
       I kinda wanna take this….jump and do the 3 day, though I’m not sure that I will be able to. With the series, I’m kinda gonna document myself and go through my day, explaining how I feel and such.
       The reason I am doing this is not because I am big, even though I am. Its not to starve myself, or anything like that. I’m doing this because I want to see how it goes.

       People say fasting helps with bringing you closer to God, and your relationship with food. Gets your body in balance. So I mean…really, what does one have to lose?

Camping Weekend

Hey guys!! So, I was writing well for a little, but then a bump in the road because, well, life happens!
       Had a great weekend worshipping and helping my family with a fundraising event, attempting to raise funds to send my grandfather back to South Carolina, by means of his daughters, my aunt and mother-in-law. I think we raised a decent amount, but not nearly the $6,000.
       I was an interesting weekend, but I am so glad it’s over. I try, but I am not a camping girl at all. I successfully managed to sleep in a tent for about 3 nights, though. That’s a good thing, right?
       I think the worst thing was the fact there were thieves on the property, which we didn’t know until the first night. How scary is it when you are in a tent and right outside are people going through your stuff, with some of you still being awake?

             All in all, the trip was fun, but now I am gladly back to writing and back to my zone.

How The Millennials Are Killing It As Parents

         Ahhh. The sweet smell of being a parent. The screaming. Being up all night. A lot of younger adults are deciding not to choose parenting, but some are still wanting to be parents. The older generations don’t like to look in our direction for anything, including parenting. Guess what? We are totally killin’ it.
            As my generation grew up, we didn’t see a whole lot from the world. That much is true. We got trophies for trying, we looked to be accepted. We watched live footage of 9/11, which hit home hard for a whole lot of us, but that was mostly the only disaster we saw. No one told us as we were growing up that our world was dying, that drug use would go up and we wouldn’t be able to find a safe neighborhood. No one even mentioned that life as we know it might get turned upside down. For the most part, we were happy.
            Now, we have this world falling apart, between diseases, government and shootings, who do we trust? What do we do? For a majority, we live. They go out, see the world and all its wonders before it’s too late. For some of us, though, we want to try and make the world a better place, but we also want to try and leave humans behind to inherit the world, as God intended.
            Yes, we had kids pretty young, regardless of the amount of times our health classes said not to have sex, said to focus on what we need  to succeed, but  we didn’t listen, much like other young children and teens don’t. No matter what age we had our children though, I think we are doing an amazing job, much better than what our parents or previous generation have done.


            We are raising open minded children who know more than just discipline. They know compassion, caring, and that they have their own minds. We struggled to find a voice, but we as parents pray to raise children who know their voice, and can use it whenever they need to, to whomever they need to. A peaceful, knowing generation. Generation Z will not be our last, but they will be the best.

Dear Future Children (Current son Included)

                        Though the thought of this is a current impossibility due to medical circumstance, I can pray that God will grant me more children with my current husband. If this is possible, this is both my letter to them, as well as my current son.

                        I am Mommy. That’s all I really aspire to be, it’s all I have ever wanted to be. I’m just a normal woman from New York who easily lost her way from a hard childhood. Not bad, just hard when childhood really shouldn’t be hard. Childhood should be easy, and fun. They shouldn’t have to raise their siblings or be kept in their rooms.

                        Your Nana tells me Daddy and I will raise a Kingdom of God, and that’s what I intend to do. God is real, and you all will know him in time. That being said, I also intend to raise you as open mined individuals. Yes, you will know the Lord, but you will also know that some people are different. Some women like women, some men like men, some people don’t gender-identify. Some don’t believe their biologic gender is proper. Did God mess them up? No. He did want us to learn to accept everyone though. Always know, God doesn’t make mistakes.

                        Schooling is important. I will love you not matter what, this is true, however you will go to school. Whether this is actual school or homeschool is up to you. Daddy and I have both been teased and hated school, but Mommy finished and Daddy had to get his G.E.D. which was just a little harder. Whatever lets you finish, you can do. I don’t even care what branch you pick to go off of, whether finance, arts, or fine arts, that choice is yours.

                        College is a requirement as well. Not because a higher education will get you places, although it might, but because it will give you time to get used to it before you hit the real world. The real world can be cruel and harsh, and children should be eased into it. Not to mention, you can learn a whole lot from college, from how to deal with people, to how to do certain maths. You never know when you will need this information.

                        Is Mommy harsh, sort of, but only because I want the best for you children. It’s my job to not only leave a good world for you, but to raise you so you can take over this world. I don’t want to raise you to be LIKE me, or to be like Daddy. I want to raise you to be way, way better than we are or were. You deserve to have every opportunity open to you. Travel, learn languages, do what you need to do to be the best you that you can me.


                                                                        Forever love,

                                                                                    Mommy

Review of: To the Bone

T.V. Rating: T.V.-M.A.
Platform: Netflix
Genre: Comedy, Drama
            I don’t know why they put this movie under comedy. It is not a comedic movie whatsoever. It has its ups, but not enough to call it comedic. Most of the “comedy” parts are the ones with Alex Sharp “Luke”.
            Overall the movie was good, but it isn’t precisely a movie for “entertainment” purposes. It’s based off of a disease, anorexia, and how a young girl, Ellen, portrayed by Lily Collins, attempts to get better.
            Considering that anorexia  is an epidemic amongst young people, both female and male, it’s a very good thing to watch with your teenager, even if it’s rated MA. It shows a bare truth to what anorexia looks like, from both the inside and out. It shows different family aspects, and talking to your teenager about how to deal with the stresses of life.
            To the Bone is very real, very raw. It talks about reasons to live, and how everyone deserves that chance. It even has twists and turns, things you would never expect.

            So…the rating? I would probably give it an 8/10. It’s similar to a couple other “uplifting” or movies about very, very real things. However, it is a movie all its own because there’s not too, too many movies that help or try to shine a light on anorexia.
