Forty Nine Years Around The Sun!!



Yes another year has come and I’m so grateful to see another birthday. There have been highs and lows earlier this year, where at times it seemed that I was going to crumble. However, in the words of the late Whitney Houston who is one of my favorite songstress of all times “ I’m not built to break”. Those who know me understand where I’m coming from and I will continue to say this quote over and over again .

Forty Nine years around the Sun and life has been good. I’m doing the things that I enjoy doing and having no regrets along the way. I can look back and say ” It was all good”.

Thank you dear Lord for my life, health and strength. I thank you again for allowing me to see another year, I don’t take this for granted.  He’s blessed me so much and have put some AMAZING women in my life.  Find your “Girl Tribe”, I’ve found mine! I often hear other women say  “they do not or cannot get along with other women. Sometimes it might not be the others…. it might just be You!!   We may not want to admit it, but its okay to check and edit ourselves. I did some editing within my own life and found that there were things that I had to change. I’m the same Felicia that many of you have come to know and Love,  but I’m in a different place in my life now.  I have adjusted my crown , and at times I have adjusted others.  Life is just way too short to be living in the past.

Thankful, overjoyed and loved are a few words that come to mind. I’m living my life like its pure GOLDEN!!

Peace and Blessing to all of you. Now let me go get that second cup of coffee that’s waiting for me. Until next time….. Live, Love and Laugh! Forty Nine Years of Rotation and I’m truly blessed.img_12382

Hello Darlings! Oh how good it feels to be here with you all once again. Most importantly, Thank You for taking the time out of your day to click on my special link which allows you to enter into to my blog room. 💻  I know it has  been a while since I’ve written my last blog post and I’m so excited with getting back to something that I really enjoy doing.

What am I doing now?  Hmmmm lets see, well currently I have my hot coffee brewing in my keurig machine, (Dunkin Donuts that is 😀) along with with my mouthwatering sausage links that are frying in the pan and my golden Egg-land eggs scrambling in another. What else shall we discuss this morning? Oh yes, Spring is approaching and we are looking forward to  warmer weather.  🙋🏾‍♀️  This also means daylight saving time, is a week away.   Mark it on your calendar .

Lastly,  make sure you take the time to relax and recharge.  Maintain that healthy relationship with yourself. I’ve been overwhelmed with so many life-changing events and I too have taken a moment to breathe, relax and unwind.

Talk to Yourself

Hello Darlings! How’s your Summer been treating you thus far? I can’t believe that July is already here and the heat is finally on. I’m stopping by just to write a quick note to all of you and to remind yourselves how beautiful you are. Sometimes we have to speak to ourselves, that’s right its okay to have a private conversation with “YOU”. We all can get caught up in our busy day-to day as we all may have commitments to our jobs and families. What about taking the time to strengthen your connection with yourself?   So right now I’m expressing to all of  you to go ahead and tell yourselves, “Self your are beautiful,  Self things are going to be ok,  Self, I believe in you, Self it’s time to take that vacation, Self no cooking or cleaning today,  Self, I have that pimple on my forehead but I’m still looking good, Self it’s okay to cry, but “I’m not built to break” and Self, I love you! Darlings, you owe that to yourselves!!
