Hi.. question mark (??)

Not me retrieving my blog back after three years. I left with a cliff hanger and all. Talking about “What’s Next?” CHILD. A lot. Just the world in general. The world was never giving anyways (that’s how we speak now). Reality and adulthood as well. All pessimism aside, how blessed are we to be alive? Very!

Seeing that writing is one of my first loves, I don’t know where to start. Do I get deep or do I keep it on the surface?

The past couple of years have been great honestly. I’ve accomplished so much and don’t plan on stopping. I’ve engulfed myself into my passion & education. My connection with our Creator has deepened. When you literally have to walk in faith, it tends to happen.

God gave me a second chance and I flew with it. I did not care about any “what if’s” I just simply flew.

When external factors fogged my mind and I started to question my faith, that was a problem.

Between regular life, outside factors and manipulation affecting me, I really had to tap in.

We live from the inside out. Our physical qualities are just vain. Our soul needs to be nourished in order to make it through this lifetime.

God really spoke to me. I had to go through unfortunate events that I knew would hurt right then, but would pass. I’ve never latched onto something that was so intangible (faith).

I’ve learned so much during my awakening.

Let me start with how the universe does not play about me. I’ve sat comfortably in A/C while the ones who had bad intentions crashed & burned. I’m not talking about people making mistakes or having disagreements, I’m talking about factors that would’ve ultimately lead to my demise.

Luckily for me, I’ve always been an intuitive person. I just didn’t realize at the time how powerful my intuition was. It was almost as if the universe was like “HERE GIRL! Here is a list of things, places and people who do not serve your higher purpose.”

When people know you stand for something, they will try to spiritually attack you. Emphasis on try. Little did they know how much it would bite them back.

So while I truly live in happiness and light, my “enemies” (I’m just gonna use that word, but in reality no one can actually have a hold over me for them to be considered an enemy) are living in despair.

I sometimes play around & say I’m physic because everything I vision comes to fruition. If I can’t “see” it, it’s not for me. If I can’t “see” it, that person is not for me. Hence why I’m living out the reality that I deserve, manifested and still manifesting. All by myself. Well.. with the help of our Creator.

Point is, follow your intuition. Get away from toxic environments the very second you can. Try to feed and replenish your soul day by day. Move through life with genuine intentions. You’ll see the positive changes. You will flourish!

With love, Moodie.

So.. What’s Next? #Summer2k17

Summer has arrived! You know what that means! A whole lot of skin, partying and blurry nights.

I’m so happy to be back in the swing of things. You have no idea how much I missed writing and talking shit. I’m just so good at it. If you follow me on social media, you already know I was on a creative hiatus trying to finish my last semesters of my first two years in college. By the grace of God, I am done.

The question is, what the hell am I going to do with my life? My answer to you is, I don’t know. If you know me, you already know how anal I am and how I HAVE to stick to a plan. The only plan I have right now is to be happy and I am. Crazy things have happened in my life, but I am such a strong believer that things happen for a reason and I can already see those reasons. I’ve laughed and loved. Now I’m in a  new chapter in my life. I like to call it the “So… what’s next?” chapter. Trust and believe that the best things are unplanned. Start taking risks. Take creative risks, risks on love, risks in regards to traveling etc. Even if those risks don’t work out, it is a better feeling to know that you tried. You will hate the feeling of “what if”.

Another thing I need you guys to do this Summer is to invest in yourself. No one can ever support or show you love they way you can. It’s time to prove to yourself how worthy you are. You deserve everything in life that you want. Only thing is, it takes a lot of hard work and patience. This is something you should be doing year around. But it is never too late to start.

Lastly (wow Jheneel, high school transition words? Really?) do what you want to do unapologetically. Live life freely. Do not try to impress the next person. You aren’t living for anyone else but yourself! Shake that ass, drop out of medical school, do what you have to do to be happy (besides killing people because……) There’s a lot of factors around us such as social media that may make us feel inadequate. But baby.. hunny.. your success is not measured by others. Everyones timing is different. And (I know I shouldn’t start a sentence with and but give me a pass) baby.. hunny.. half those people are faking their happiness. Which would you rather do? Genuinely be happy or put on show to fill the void of unhappiness? Personally, I’m going with option A.

I hope you took my mediocre words into consideration because it doesn’t take a genius to realize that being happy is such a great feeling! I love you guys so much. More is on the way. Be patient got dammit.

Self Love

Happy New Year! I’m beyond blessed and thankful that God spared my life yet another year. I think it’s time that I can finally go into depth on how self love is so important. Sometimes tragedies and heartbreak can result in such a beautiful thing. You have to find the beauty within the ugly. There are always bright, bouncy clouds in the mist of the stormy ones. It’s hard to have that mindset when you’re actively being hurt. That’s why I’m here to share my perspective.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the shit out myself. I be poppin’ or whatever. But in the past months, Iv’e learned so many things about myself. I am able to identify my emotions and how I feel. Sometimes we like to deceive our brain into thinking we are fine. In my opinion, that is extremely detrimental. I like to recognize that feeling, brainstorm on how I can diminish or enhance that feeling, then make it my bitch. I refuse to let anyone else be in control of my feelings. In reality, I only have myself. If you can’t be 100% honest with yourself, then what’s the point?

Another process in finding self love is recognizing your likes and dislikes. What makes you happy? What are your passions? Do you love this? Do you hate that? Do every and anything that makes you happy. I tell everyone I come across that I support all their life decisions. That’s what life is ultimately about to me. Doing what you love, spreading peace and giving back.

Last but not least, remove every fucking negative energy around you. I know it may be hard for you to cut off people that are so close to you. Whether if it’s a boyfriend, best friend etc. If they are a negative Nancy, cut that bitch off. For example, Iv’e had cut emotional strings with certain family members. Why should your words and actions have me feeling unworthy?  I now know what makes me happy, right? And that doesn’t make me happy, right?

Peoples negativity can consume you and have you believe that YOU can’t make that goal or YOU can’t obtain true happiness. With all that bad energy, you start doubting and questioning yourself. Am I good enough? Will I ever make it? Well let me tell you something bitch- and I mean that in the most enduring way, you can. You guys are strong, smart, beautiful, creative and wish nothing but the best. I truly love all of you. Keep pushing and be safe.

Everyone that knows me, knows that American Apparel is my favorite brand. I’ve made videos and previous posts about it because.. it’s that serious. They offer high quality, timeless clothing in a sweatshop free environment. This pass weekend they had a pop up flea market right behind their Miami Lincoln Road location. At the other flea market locations, they have discounted clothing so I knew I had to stop by. More importantly they had an extra ‘50% off everything’ sale from July 15-17th. So discounted clothes with another discount added?? Yeah I’m all in. After getting lost and confusing the real location for the pop up location, I walked into something that seemed like heaven. Tubs filled with hundreds of pieces. All garments with a red sticker were an extra 75% off. YALL. Pieces that were originally $68, then $34 ended up costing me $8. That was the most I spent on an item during this shopping spree. My original total was $700+ and I ended up paying $73 for 22 items. As you can see, I dedicated a clothing rack for all my American Apparel clothes in style, color and size order. Luckily if you’re in the South Florida area, the pop up shop is coming back for one more weekend: July 22nd-24th from 12pm to 5pm. Tell em’ Moodie sent ya! (Don’t actually tell them that. They won’t know who you’re talking about)
