Taking That Long Walk (Catch-Up/Holiday Edition)


The last stanza of this poem makes more sense to me now than when I was younger.

Taking “The Long Walk” from my perspective is knowing that change doesn’t come automatically and it won’t happen overnight. If it were humanly possible for me to lose 30 lbs. or more within 24-hours, we’d all be in trouble. With all the aches and pains I’ve endured over the years up until now, the journey is worth it. You see yourself in situations that you think you couldn’t handle in faith. There’s no way that I would be able to do a lot of things on my own. I needed–and still need—strength from the Creator.


I was finally able to see my stylist for a new style and I’ll get a chance to play with hair lol. It’s professional yet low-maintenance.


I’m excited to see more of this long walk. The journey… Oh the journey… has been (and continues to be) an experience!

You KNOW I have an interesting taste in music lol.


What I Know Now


What I know now is that my body desires more rest as I grow and gain wisdom.

What I know now is the true meaning of “a moment on the lips equals a lifetime on the hips.”

What I know now is weight loss and maintenance doesn’t happen overnight. It’s progression and consistency.

What I know now is to be comfortable in your own skin as you continue your health fitness journey.

What I know now is that I’m blessed to be able to walk; talk; think; sing; dance; listen; see. The little things or the gifts given to us shouldn’t be taken for granted.

What I know now is constant worry NEVER solves a problem. It makes the situation worse.

What I know now is that I can expect great things to happen as I continue to give blessings and praise to the Creator.

What I know now is when times are good, everyone is around. When you are approached with adversity, you find out who TRULY supports and appreciates you.

What I know now is to listen to your body, because it will tell you what needs to be done in order to stay healthy.

What I know now is to keep the faith….always…..
