Today would’ve been your 19th birthday.. Sad thing is today is the day they chose to announce that your murderer will be fighting in a “celebrity” boxing match… I’m not quite sure how he’s labeled as a celebrity of any sort or why he’s been celebrated while you were on trial for your own death, but peace and blessings to your family as this cruel world gets a little more sick… Rest peacefully Trayvon.

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

21 Day Fast..

Posted in Uncategorized on January 12, 2014 by Mira

…As I posted earlier, we began 21 Days of prayer and fasting Monday, January 6th and today brought it all into perspective. My motives were shallow and self pleasing. I gotta put in the work to crucify the flesh and go deeper, grow further and build on the relationship with God! I was thinking of all of the superficial things one could gain through this process, but today was something that I NEEDED! Not only was it eye opening to my selfish ways, but it allowed me to further understand how much more growth and fight is in me. This isn’t my first time fasting, but I got away from what I stood on prior to now. Before fasting was much more of a sacrifice for me, but not in ways that I thought of what superficial thing I’ve been hoping for would I receive. I was actually working towards a great connection, deeper relationship with Christ, and this time I started out worrying fully about myself and THINGS. It was spiritually cleansing to be in His presence today and hear from other people. I Needed that! Stay blessed fam! 

Did You Tune Into “Being Mary Jane?”

Any thoughts?

Today, I am here having random text conversations with a few people and it hit me, “This is why I probably don’t date.” lol Sex doesn’t mean much to me, right now anyway… Actually, it never has. It’s quite often helped me weed out the people I knew I didn’t really need to date, because within moments of a conversation somehow sex became the topic. All you know about me is that 5’2″ and brown skin, why would you possibly need to know about what I go to sleep in or when we’d be spending the night with each other. Can we develop some kind of relationship first ?  Don’t come to me knowing that is where your focus lies and dress it up as “I would like to get to know you better and see where this could grow.” I’ll appreciate the straight forwardness of this, because at that moment, I can decide if I’d like to continue dating or if we should just not even consider it. I get it, someone tells you what they like in a potential partner, and instinctively you want them, so you’ll do what it takes to be with them. However, if that isn’t who you are or where you are currently, it’s okay to keep it moving. Who knows, in time you two may see each other again and there may be a spark…

I’m not against meeting new people… I don’t mind the expression of sexuality, but I will not give you an illusion to a sex life with me, because that just isn’t me. Yes, we’re grown; sex is a part of life… I get it. Just don’t come at me with that. If that’s all you’re looking for, trust I am not the one you’re looking for and I have no problem with letting that be known. Attack my character all you want, call me childish, or whatever you’d like but at the end of the day, I will not compromise who I am and what it is that I believe, because you’re having  temper tantrum about my not wanting to sex you. If you tell me that we’re adults, I’m expecting for this to be an adult like conversation. If you can’t respect me, please keep it moving.

Be Blessed.

Have you ever sat and wondered how you could tell someone that you love them? The various scenarios play out in your mind, and you’re constantly trying to find ways to say it and make them realize that this love is more than “I’m so glad we’re friends”, but of a romantic love. That love you want to stand on the top of the Empire State Building and scream at the top of your lungs. However, there is still this shy, somewhat nervous little girl hidden inside of you that would never allow such boldness to take place. Then one day, out of the blue, this person you’ve been crushing on for a billion years (yes, that’s what it feels like) asks you if you love them as more than a friend. What? Why would you ask that? No warning, no signs, no smoke signals, nothing… Where did this come from? The panic sets in and you can either allow it to consume you or you can breathe, relax and answer truthfully. Except for answering truthfully sends your mind back into this whirlwind, so you’re thinking of how to say yes… Is it a simple yes or is it “Yes, I love you more than a friend. I love your more than I’ve probably ever loved someone in this manner. I’ve wanted to be yours since adolescence brought you to my attention as more than a friend. The moment I knew that I wanted to kiss you and hold your hand, well before adult life had ever set in. I just love you. Your laugh, your smile, your ability to make even my worst day seem like the greatest and you don’t even know. And more importantly I adore the way that you love the Lord. Our conversations are always insightful and helpful. How could I not love you?” How do you say this and not feel crazy? In that moment, it’s almost as if you finally realize why no one else even mattered, and past heartbreak didn’t seem to shatter you the way you presumed it would. Attempts to date other people just seem shallow and unnecessary, but you do this because you could never tell your friend, the one person that you can talk to about your biggest dreams and deepest fears, that you love them more than a friend and not feel that you’ll ruin what the two of you share. How do you say I made the choice to love you and it hasn’t gone away? I just want to tell the world and really just you that I love you! That won’t change tomorrow or today…
