The Pain of Losing Someone You Love....

Good Evening All, let me start off by saying I missed you guys so much! I have been ill the last couple of weeks, and when I am sick.. It's just not a good look. :-)

I was speaking with a girlfriend the other day, and she was talking about the guy she was with, and she met his new woman. How hard is that? The person you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with, introduces you to the new woman.

You think about the promises he made to her, and the long talks, and the visits, and all while he was seeing this other woman... And now you get to meet her. Sure, it's easy to say just get over it.. But how many of us can really just get over something like that so easily?

I had my heart ripped out of my chest with the last guy I was "with". So, I know a little bit about this pain thing. And how much it hurts. He decided one day that he liked someone else, and didn't want to be with me. And to add to that, in order to be with the new person, he couldn'…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…

A Letter to Daddy's Girl...

I felt led to share this with you all.... This is a letter from my Heavenly Father to me, and I believe that He feels this way about all His daughters...

"Dear Baby, My Sweet Beautiful Baby. I love you more than words could ever say. I think about you all the time, I  watch you while you're sleeping. Wanting to play in your hair, or blow you sweet kisses. Waiting for you to awake, so I can hear your squeaky  little voice. lol! I have known you since the foundation of the world. I created you, I knit you together. You are MINE! And I don't take that lightly.

Which is why I am so careful to take good care of you. My Word tells you that I will never leave you, no forsake you. I will be with you to the end of time. I will NEVER let you go! You just don't know how much you mean to Me. Oh, how I long for you to know, how much, I love you. Oh, I desire to give you everything your heart desires. As I have placed those desires within you.

Please stop giving your heart away. Yo…

Is Your Man Worth Losing Everything....

Good Evening You Guys,

It's been a while, I know.. But I have been mad busy.. Did you miss me and my unusual life?? I missed you all!

So, this blog is a little different. I asked a friend of mine if I could share her story for tonight's blog. She gave me her permission, because she wants to help anyone that is reading this, and may be going through the same thing. I will not use her name, to protect her privacy. But, here we go...

My friend "Leslie" has been involved in a relationship with a man for a little over a year. She knew this relationship wasn't God's plan for her life when she got involved. But she didn't expect the relationship to get this deep. It's not really a relationship to be honest, "Leslie" is wishing for more, and he is playing the field. She knows that God is not pleased with this relationship, but what can she do.. She feels like she is in to deep.

Fast forward a year and some change later "Leslie" loses her j…

Letting Go... Why is it soooo Hard

Okay, so I am sitting here thinking of somethings, and people I need to let go of, in order to move to the next level in life. And I'm trying to understand why it is so hard to do.

What makes it so difficult to let things go? Let's start off with me needing to let go of some of my bad eating habits. I know darn well, that I have to start eating better so that I can lose this weight. I don't mind working out, I can go to the gym at any time, and no real issue with doing it. But when it comes to letting go of the fast food, and junk food.... It seems so hard to do.

I know the benefits of eating right... Longer life, healthier, lighter leaner body.. But, nope.. Not Kellee.. Instead, "pass the potato chips please", or "can I have another cupcake please". It's so ridiculous!

Or whycome (I know that is not a word, I just wanted to use it..  lol). Whycome, it's an issue to let go of toxic relationships? People who are in my life, and add nothing but h…

Why I'm Not Married... The Realist I Will Ever Be

Welcome to my Unusual Life.... This is about to be the realist blog I have ever written.

I just walked in the door a little bit ago, sat down on the sofa with a bag of Tostitos and some Pineapple Peach Salsa. I logged on to Facebook, and immediately saw a post that caught my attention.

It was entitled "Desperation Settles".... The title speaks for itself...

And it made me think of my own life, made me wonder why I am still single... All of these years I didn't realize that I wasn't "wife" material, atleast not for the type of man I want to marry. And then I wondered why I wasn't wife material, what was I lacking? So, here we go... I am about to dig into somethings, and say somethings that many have never heard from me before, but I pray it blesses you.

The reason why I am not married is because I always gave up the booty! After the first date, no date, date after I paid, 5th date, it didn't matter! I always had sex with men, and they never had to p…

A Little Focus Anyone... Yeah, Me Either

This is a BIG one for me... The people closes to me know that I really don't like to speak negative confessions. Things like "it's hard" or "I can't". But on this focus thing, it is the hardest thing for me to do lately.

There is always so much going on... I am a full-time single parent, full-time employee, full-time business owner, full-time leader in my church, daughter, sister, friend, mentor, and so much more.... How do you focus through all of that?

Then we have all of this technology.. Smart phones, iPads, Laptops, Social Media, Reality television, and whatever else is out there. I mean really, how is anyone to focus with so much noise in the world? There is always a call, a text, or an email to attend to. I have a "to do list" for my "to do list". LOL!! I find myself having to set appointments and meetings in several different locations (Planner, Calendar, and Task Manager on my Smart Phone)...

By the end of the night I am wi…

Getting to Know Me via Text... REALLY!

Okay, don't get me wrong, I like to text just as much as the next social butterfly... But what is up with men texting women to get to know them?

I met a gentleman last evening, while I was out running an errand. He asked if he could have my number, and he seemed nice enough, so I gave it to him. He texted me an hour later asking for a picture. I thought "no big deal, my pictures are all over Facebook, Instagram and Twitter", so I sent it to him. He has been texting me since we met. I finally stopped responding to him!

What 39 year old man uses text messaging to get to know a woman they are interested in!?! Oh that's right the other gentleman that I am causal friends with, that's in his 40's, and he likes to text too... I am about to stop talking to both of them to be honest with you!

I am on a key board all day at work, and then I'm on my laptop when I come home in the evening working my business, who wants to sit and text all day! Give me a break! What h…

Will the Real Kellee, Please Stand Up

Okay, so I had a pretty interesting day... And I know you want to here all about it... My Unusual Life...

So, I was thinking about my life today. Where  I am in life, where I was, and where I want to be. And I realized today, that the person that I am living right now is NOT the real Kellee.

It was so weird to me, I have a picture and my mind of who the real Kellee is, and that person is not me. I believe the picture that I see in my mind is the Kellee, God called me to be. This person is sassy, she is fashionable, slim, with long pretty natural hair... (That's right, the girl is not wearing anymore weaves!) LOL! She's a diva in her own right, she's very strong and independent, and she loves, loves, loves life!

So then who is this person that I am living as today? Don't get me wrong, I have some of the qualities as the real Kellee does, but I am lacking in a lot of areas. It feels like I am living the life as the person the world told me to be, or as my situations and …

Life and Times of a Single Christian Woman

Okay, so here we go.... My Unusual Life, comes with the good, the not so pretty, and the really not so pretty. LOL!

A Christian single woman's life is not always so much fun.. However, it is always worth it!

So here we go... Is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of men these days, are wanna be players? Why is it so hard for men to be decent? Or is it that they are so used to women settling for less, that it's no big deal to them?

Why is it that women settle? What's the reason for it? Seems like, these days some of us accept almost anything. Is it because we don't know who we are? Is it because we don't know who God created us to be? Is it because we have become so desperate to be with a man? Or is it all of the above?

Whatever it is, how do we change it? How do we turn it around? How do we regain the respect we deserve? Is it too late? Has it gone too far? It seems that believers are more desperate than non-believers. And why is that? Is it because we have com…

Start Where You Find Yourself

"When he came to his senses, he said, 'how many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death"! (Luke 15:17)

How many of us need to do as the prodigal son did, and come to our senses? How many of us are going day by day, living "prodigal lives"? Here is some definitions of a Prodigal Life:
Living excessivelyWastefulCostly RecklessLacking cautionThoughtless You may ask, what does a prodigal life have to with the title of today's blog. EVERYTHING!! You have to know where you are, before you can start where you find yourself. Just as this son began to realize where he was, we have to do the same thing. He realized that he was in a pig pen starving to death, because of his prodigal living, and he came to his senses, and started where he found himself.
He had to hit the reset button on his life, but, he had to come to his senses first. And that's what we have to do, when we find ourselves in prodigal living. We …
