Time to Clear Some Space!!

Today I'm grateful. I've been in this place for a few days now. Some might say, I'm just feeling the true holiday spirit, but I think it's more than that. I have been giving away coupons for free stuff, donating to freecycle, Goodwill, people on Craigslist and looking for ways to volunteer my time. I've been cleaning out drawers, clearing out boxes and just getting things out of my house.

I'm a spiritual person, who really doesn't believe in things happening by chance or coincidence. I KNOW everything happens for a reason and this time in my life is no different. I am certain of it. It is no coincidence that I was falling into a state of depression last month and the minute I started being grateful, my emotional health soared high.

My first tweet today was " Latisha has not shaken the 'donate' feeling! So grateful! More stuff to donate today!" I believe I am making room for something. Getting rid of negativity and even things I just don't need, has helped me clear my mind, as well as my space. There MUST be something GOOD waiting to come into my life!! 

My hope is that this blog will inspire others to do something outside of themselves. Find a worthy cause and support it. The world is so much more than just the run of the mill things we do...without even thinking. Let's think about others today!! It's time to clear some space!!

I'm Willing to Lose...to Gain Me!!

I thought about him last night. We got along so well and we could talk about anything. In fact, he was one of the most honest men I've ever known. We had such a good time and was building a really good friendship. He just had one flaw...he had the tendency to waste my time. Not the "he talks to much" kind of waste my time, but the "let's make plans, then the day passes by without follow thru of said plans" type of waste my time.

We talked about this issue previously...because we talked about everything. He said he liked my ability to give it to him straight...I guess he didn't like it this one day though...He apologized through his teeth and then I didn't hear from him anymore...that was about 1.5 weeks ago. I reached out, he ignored me.

I miss him...however, I decided I cannot allow anyone to disregard me and make our relationship one sided, just so I can be their friend. If this happened a couple of years ago, he would have gotten away with it, but that is not who I am anymore. I give respect and support, so I demand it back from every relationship. If it cannot reciprocated, I have to step away from it.

I'm willing to lose him and anyone else...in order to gain me!! I'm okay with moving on. I got my own closure and I'm open to life!! I welcome life to bring on the next one...actually it already has. :)

It's Time for Color!!

I color code my closet. A few short years ago, I had a two sided closet. One side was arranged by color, then the other side I had my blacks, grays, whites and denim. Looking back I noticed, just how much black I had in my wardrobe. Sure, we all need our classic, basic black items...skirts, pants and jackets, but my closet was chock full of black. One day I decided to add more color....

Today, I'm deciding to add more color to my LIFE!! I am young and I need to truly life to the fullest. For those of you who know me...I know many of you will say I live a pretty colorful life now...but you really don't know the half. I save things...and not just money (for the those that know the Frugalicious Diva...) I don't live enough in the now, I don't have enough fun!! That stops today!!

This blog is about my Total Transformation!! It will include traveling, weight loss, love and relationships, money, philanthropy and more!! The more I find out about me, the more I will share!!

Get ready for me world...Latisha is no longer playing small!!
