Talk About It Tuesday

Today I would talk about what is in the news but its so sad and dumb I am going to leave it on TV. Today I want to talk about broke by definition. I called a young lady broke and her come back was “I gotta job.” I didn’t know her financial situation so I found her limited capacity to think hilarious. It is sad that you gauge your level of completeness (not sure if that is the right choice of verbiage) on money. I called her broke because she was calling her “boyfriend’s” ex to have a “woman to woman.” Now I have to admit I am a pretty confident woman, so this is beneath me. To me this is the behavior of a broke/broken woman. I am a firm believer that there is someone for everyone and I would never give another woman any satisfaction with the knowledge of any conflict between myself and my man. Now what I would do is have him address any situation that is causing conflict or lose me. The reality is we are all beautiful in our own right and everybody is not for everybody. We are all beautifully and individually made and acknowledging that you are complete allows you to avoid broke behavior. Love yourself the way you want to be loved, so you don’t settle for less than you deserve. #kathiscreations


Staying Faithful

This year is starting off very rough for me. I experienced the loss of two very close family members in one month of each other. I have been struggling with my faith and in the past I would take a faith break. However, this time has been different. I have been spending more time in prayer. It has been random throughout my day. Sometimes my prayers are simple “Jesus cover me” “Jesus comfort me” “Jesus help me”. Everytime I feel weak or ready to give up I am reminded of the testimony God has allowed me to live through and share. I know that even in this troubling period in my life God is protecting me. I have conversed with God and explained that, although He won’t give you more thsn you can bare, I think He has overedtimated my strength. Than it hits me, pray, you don’t have to bare this alone. Often times people assume that because things are not going well in your life, you are being punished. I have learned that couldn’t be ghe furtherest from the truth. The rough times helps you appreciate the good times. Surviving the rough times shows you how strong you really are. I am believing God for all the blessings He has for me. His word says these blessings are more than what we request. I am believing in His word and I know this valley is only for a moment. I am filled with excitement knowing that there is a beautiful blessing with my name on it. So for now I will pray myself through this sorrow.

The Grammys

I love how the day after an awards event everything on tv, radio, social media, etc. Is about the star studded event. I always tell people that I did not grow up with a lot of TV time. To be more specific my grandmother did not allow me to watch tv but 1 hour a day (if my grades were good). That one hour never fell during primetime and so I never took an interest in awards shows. I am of ethnic descent and my grandmother really took the stance that all the awards shows did not pay hommage to our heritage so they were not watched in our house. Now that is no longer the case I still have no interest in ghe who wore what better shows. Does anyone else avoid these shows like the plague? If you have to stop life to watch them, please explain to me why?

Learning to Love

Love is complicated. Its really easy to love someone who loves you. The real hard part is to love people who don’t earn or appreciate your love. The real hard part is loving from a distance. It is also hard to be quiet when I realize someone is not being as humble or appreciative as I would be. Being considerate of others feelings is a big thing for me. Unfortunately, others are not always so kind. How to handle the unkind is my biggest issue. I was the kid that fought the bullies who picked on the weaker kids. Now as an adult I reevaluate that position and ask myself does that make me any better then the bully. I am not diffusing the conflict but replacing it and that doesn’t help create peace and positivity. My adventure in 2018 is to learn to resolve conflict with love and peace.

Etsy Page Goals

I have been planning on updsting my Etsy page but I could never get it together. However, now I have been doing well with the social media marketing. Now I have to work on this blog. Lord please help me. I struggle with what to say and topics to write about. I have a lot in my head but it never comes together on the blog. So tonight I will just rejoice in being able to keep up with my Etsy shop and I have posted 1 blog post a day, everyday for 2018. Stay tuned it will get better. #kathiscreations

Just Say Nothing

Proverbs 26:4-14

4 Don’t answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are.
5 Be sure to answer the foolish arguments of fools, or they will become wise in their own estimation.

6 Trusting a fool to convey a message is like cutting off one’s feet or drinking poison!

7 A proverb in the mouth of a fool is as useless as a paralyzed leg.

8 Honoring a fool is as foolish as tying a stone to a slingshot.

9 A proverb in the mouth of a fool is like a thorny branch brandished by a drunk.
10 An employer who hires a fool or a bystander is like an archer who shoots at random.

11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness.
12 There is more hope for fools than for people who think they are wise.
13The lazy person claims, “There’s a lion on the road! Yes, I’m sure there’s a lion out there!”

14As a door swings back and forth on its hinges, so the lazy person turns over in bed.

Today, I realized what is meant by just shutting up. I don’t have to attend every argument that I am invited to. Some people will never see the world outside of the narrow scope that affects them, and I have to accept that. I use to try to have people understand my point of view, even if it required an argument to do it. Often I try to view things from others point of views, even if I disagree. My biggest mistake is expecting others to do the same. In dealing with all the curve balls life throws me, I am learning that my energy is best served other places. So in 2018 I start with knowing when to just shut up. One of my favorite movies is called “Hang Up.” It is sometimes necessary to hang up, terminate the conversation, or mute the other person. This is not a loss but a win. Some people are to caught up in themselves to ever understand your point of view and you should treat them accordingly. So no unnecessary arguments in 2018. #blessingsandmiracles #kathiscreations
