When we were younger, possibilities to our life goals were endless. As children, we dreamt big dreams of conquering the world. It was wonderful. It was possible. And we were determined to make it happen.

Contented Resolutions

We all have written down our new year resolutions; well, at least most of us have. Majority of us, have already broken them, and its not even March (I hope not).

It’s been crazy y’all. I attribute the block to so much that was happening in my life that I couldn’t hold and see through a clear thought process in my mind. I was trying to put things together in my life in relation to where I am heading in my life. Settling in to a new relationship also, froze me up a bit (because the lessons I was learning were too many, I couldn’t write them down, so I just had to go with the flow of things.)

Sometimes we get a life block in our lives:

Life block – the condition of being unable to know what to do with your life, or where to go next with your life; also known as quarter life crisis (Definition – mine).
