One Year of Prep - Day One

Good Evening Loves!

Okay, so I know this is like number 500 times that I have changed the name of this blog... LOL!! I know - I know... But that's the cool thing about blogs, you can change it up!

So how is everyone? I pray all is well. I'm doing pretty well; my son is out of town for the summer with his father, so that has been amazing. Not having to cook, or clean up after anyone but myself! Yes, thank You Jesus for fathers!

So, a few years ago I felt like the Lord wanted me to take some time off of the dating scene. Like, I needed to spend some time working on me. Well, needless to say I was disobedient, and never stopped dating.

They weren't sexual relationships, but if I didn't want to go to the movies alone, I would call someone up. If I got invited to dinner, I would go. And I never took that time off to really learn to enjoy me. So here we are in 2013, and I feel a strong urge in my spirit again to take time away from dating. And this time I am going to do it!

And guess what... I am bringing you all along for the ride! (Can anyone say "riding shot gun")!?! LMBO

So, today is day one and I'm feeling really good about doing this. This is a time where I get to spend alone with me and God, and not be distracted by text messages, emails, or phone calls from the opposite sex. I will also make it a point to check in with you all, and let you know how things are going. The good, the bad and the super ugly!

I can't promise that I will do a blog every single day, but I will check in as much as possible. :-)

And listen, if anyone wants to take a year off with me, let me know. I will be happy to go on this journey with you.

Now, even though the beginning of this was to take a year off from dating, but it goes so much deeper than that. During this year of preparation, I have some goals that I would like to achieve. So we will be discussing more than just men (or the lack there of) this year. 

I'll be sharing my goals with you over the next few days, so stay tuned...

Okay my loves, until next time Be Good… Live Life… And above all else… Be Unusual!

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…

Why Do We Settle for Less...

My Unusual Life follower wrote this:

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

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…
