Newbies, up incoming, indies. All of these words mean that there’s beautiful things to be heard, read, or watched that aren’t getting the press and media they need.
I’m a lover of discovering new and exciting things. From tech to entertainment. I seek out and search for things and people to listen to as they lend their voices to society.
I picked out five creative wonders to share with you all and one bonus film that I’m sure you’ve all hear of by now.

Who doesn’t love suspense and murder? This book has them both. The plot thickens as well as pulls you into an era from the past. Soon to be released check out a preview on his website drchetadamsforum.com
To round up some great entertainment and exciting work. I wouldn’t be a real superhero fan if I didn’t include today’s newly released Black Panther. The anticipation for this movie has been hugely important. The weekend is around the corner and what a great way to relax and enjoy it.

Stories where you are victorious are some of the best told stories around. Through history people have been passing on the triumphs of life’s victories.
Mine had a lot of cursing in it. It was the Sam Jackson version.
Left Arizona for Nebraska Friday afternoon a little after 3pm. Rode through New Mexico like a champ. Then I got stopped by border police. Go figure.
After shaking in my imaginary boots waiting on that hard green bench with my sons. We got the okay to leave. Thank goodness!
We take off and head towards my auntie’s house close to Dallas. Seeing her and the family was great. She gave a us a great surprise and put us up in a nice Fairfield Marriott. After we left there we headed to Dallas.
Let me talk about Dallas’s interstate….whyyyyyyyy!? Why are there so many overpasses? Scary loopy overpasses. After a complete breakdown I refused to drive anymore of them and decided to go the long way around.
It turned out to be a great detour. Oklahoma was packed with my native history. Something we missed out on coming through the first time. I’m super excited I got to check it off my bucket list.
I managed to stay up the full 14 hours and got through the ice. Being a full 5 degrees anything that had any kind of moisture iced right up. Hitting that welcome to Nebraska sign was like seeing a pot of gold. Heavenly.
I’m thankful that we completed the mission. We handled our business. We managed a little turn up and got back safe and sound. Next time I get the big ideal to drive across America…. stop me…. seriously. I pushed pass my limits. I drove in places I didn’t even believe I could. I slept outside gas stations and barely ate. I did it for myself and for my children, but man. The victory wasn’t just ours. When I couldn’t see myself driving another mile. I prayed. When I couldn’t see myself staying awake. I prayed. When I was so stressed out that I couldn’t think straight. I prayed. The victory isn’t mine alone and I’m loving that. I really do have a universal comforter in my times of need.
It’s Monday! Take time to celebrate your victories big and small. We only have one life to live so live it and enjoy every second while you can.

Happy Monday everyone! Enjoy it. ❄️

I’m sitting here trying to get my nerves up to go on this trip to Arizona. Im planning on driving the whole way. I have the worst case of bubbles right now. Seriously I’m silently freaking the f**ck out. I’m not the best driver and having no cell phone right now isn’t the smartest way to go. I’m using a gps and I hope it’s up to date, because gps systems can send you to some very scary and weird places. I’m speaking from experience. Considering the fact that I’m confused with most directions away.
I normally leave the distance driving to others.
Is it wrong to secretly hope there’s another option? Like for real. I’m sure that most people don’t mind long rode trips and things that take time. But the people who love me know that I’m not like that. I’d rather fly and I like to go Ricky Bobby fast. I read all signs like this:
Today I’m in love with the idea of the journey. I’m excited to see if I can push myself to get there. If I’m able to handle whatever life throws my way. If I can get everything done.
I hate the fact that I’m not sure of what it is next. I constantly feel like I’m grasping at straws. Just looking for a stable environment. Just hoping that something actually comes out good with no hiccups or confusion.
This year has been a lot of firsts. A lot of changes have been made. All while I’m trying to stay positive and focus on the good. The truth is life isn’t always easy. Sometimes it’s hard to save yourself let alone anyone else and I have children to be there for. Good or bad I HAVE to figure it out.
Please send me your prayers. Positivity and blessings. I’ll be blogging about Love for the month of February. This way I’ll look for it all month long.
Today I’m in love with the ideal of heading to Arizona. Wish me luck because I’m gonna need it.

Road Trip Babe Raglan
Everything around me is energy moving systematically.
The universe is reflecting back my thoughts my wants and my dreams.
The things I love that I like that I have are all in one. Exactly at the edge of my finger tips and within my reach.
The science of life seems to be ask and you shall receive.
Perception is the key.
I asked for gratitude. I was given reasons to be thankful. I asked for strength and I was given reasons to be strong. I asked for love and I was put in situations that required me to be loving.
The qualities of the universal song is to open the mind to all possibilities. Well that becomes too large and to big to measure.
I needed to shut my mind and listen to what was searching for me as I was searching for it.
The answer I got was everything. Everything that I am searching for is literally searching for me. If I receive it with an open and loving positive heart. Then that is exactly how it would look.
My mission is to do just that. Allow life to be beautiful. To flow peacefully from one moment to the next. To open myself up to the mystical mysteries of this world and to enjoy the ride.
Happy Saturday y’all

Gratefulness and thankfulness go hand and hand. Kind of like one hand washing the other.
Or more like one hand watching the other.
When the question for today said what family member or friend am I grateful for. It suggests to me that I could pick one.
The people I’m grateful for I’m thankful for also. I’ve been blessed with many different loved ones from very different ways of life. My friends become family. My bloodline is family no matter the differences I love them all individually.
My gratitude is for having anyone to be there. Whether it’s just for conversation. Whether it’s for hugs and kisses. Whether they are from my womb or gifted to me by life’s circumstances. Even though it all everyone I hold close to my heart has a reason for my gratitude.
Day 29 of grateful January. This last Monday of January 2018, I’m grateful for my family and friends.

It’s a new week of life’s journey

Wake up and the alarm rings. Thank goodness for it be without it I would probably sleep through the whole day.
Turn on the television and watch a show. Thank goodness for it because it is entertaining when I want to zone out.
Walk into the bathroom and brush my teeth. Who ever made toothbrushes are the best because what kind of world was there when breath was funky.
Obviously I joke about curtain things, but what a gift it is to have the little things in life. Things that I barely think about being grateful for.
Day 27 of grateful January and what daily thing do I use that I’m grateful for? I’m grateful for my comfy blanket. It keeps me warm and wraps me in softness. Lawd knows that I love softness.
Happy Saturday everyone enjoy the day

Grateful for another week.
Trying times a week can be.
When hearts are heavy and drama tends to prevail. I can sometimes fail to be the best version of myself.
Finding gratitude is a way of life.
I push myself into the realm of gratefulness even though I have ups and downs. I push myself to be thankful for others. I’m choosing to change my ways.
The choice has been made to be better. My gratitude doesn’t end at the end of this month. This was a preview to the life that I would like to lead going forward.
Moments that I’ve been grateful for this week include laughter. They include loved ones. That include a special someone that means the world to me.
Day 25 what moments this week made me grateful.
I’m grateful for today.
Attitude of gratitude for a Thursday morning and everyday after
Sending you peace and love 💋
