Fact or Fiction?

Okay, so I totally think that the state of your room is somewhat a depiction of your character and/or life. For instance, if your room is kind of plain and messy, maybe there’s a cup or two, or five, sitting on your dresser, then I automatically would assume that:

A- You’ve been sick or gone for the past few days, or weeks, and have not had the time to clean.

OR

B- You are entirely too lazy and simply “can’t” with your room.

If you have a tidy, organized room where everything has a home, then I would assume that:

A- Either you cleaned it because you knew you were having company.

OR

B- This is simply how you are in all aspects of life: organized.

Maybe these assumptions are jumping too quickly to a conclusion, because I will admit, I work 40 hour weeks and the last thing on my list of things to do when I get home is to clean my room. So yes, you will find random piles of clothes on my floor any day of the week. However, if you gave my room a visit on Sunday, you best believe it will be clean because Sundays are my designated cleaning day. =)

So what does this say about me?

Well, if I were to analyze my room’s current state compared to my life’s current state, I would say they definitely reflect one another.

This week I found out the transmission of my car needs replacing, along with some other part that has something to do with my oil and is really expensive. In addition to that, my job has been a little crazy, my mom and I got into an argument this week (we rarely EVER argue), and the state of my mental health has been a little lower than I would like due to all of the craziness going on.

Walking into my room, my vanity has a pile of mail on it that I just haven’t had the mental capacity to even look at, I have a stack of school books on my floor that I’ve been meaning to sell online, and as I stated above, I have heaps of clothing haphazardly in piles around my room, I also have about 6 purses hanging on door knobs, the top of my closet door, and probably even one or two laying on my floor some where.

I would say that my room 100% reflects my life right now.

I would also say that I truly believe the saying that “a clean room is a clean mind” because the last thing you want to look at after a long, stressful day, are piles of clothes on your floor. If I could just come home to a made bed, and a clear pathway to my bed, I would probably feel a little bit of a relief. I think that others can relate to that, and if you can’t then you are totally a type B.

Christmas 2015

Ending this Christmas weekend with a joyful spirit. It seems the older I get the more I enjoy Christmas not because of the gifts, but because of time spent with loved ones, and of course time celebrating the true reason for the season: the birth of Jesus. 

Christmas Eve my family and I went to the 7:30 pm service at our church, New Life, and it was great to say the least, the pastor and the worship leaders never cease to amaze me.

After the service we went home and put on our Christmas pajamas and drank hot chocolate with a ridiculous amount of marshmallows. My mom, Leah, Lydia, and myself all had matching pajama pants, and my mom’s boyfriend, Sam, and his 3 boys all had Christmas shirts with comical quotes on them. It was pretty cute.

Christmas day was busy for me, I had 5 houses to visit! My mom’s, my best friend’s, Derrod’s, my other best friend’s, and my aunt’s. Although it was crazy, and mid-day I did get a little grumpy (I needed a nap), it was still great to be able to see all of my loved ones.

Here are some pictures of my siblings and I with our cousin Courtney.

Pictures with the family. Leah is in the red blazer, Lydia is in the burgundy skirt, my brother Japheth is in the middle, my cousin Courtney is in the gray sweater, and I am in the silver dress.

 

My sisters and I ended our weekend with shopping! We spent all of our giftcards at the mall. I will be posting about all of the great things I picked up sometime this week, but for now I hope all of you enjoyed your holiday as much as I did. Have a great week and try not to be too bummed out about going back to work on Monday. I love you all!
