I have lived through and seen plenty of hurricanes in my 28 years on this planet. The destruction that these storm systems can leave behind is remarkable. Being in the United States for the past 7 years during the height of the Atlantic hurricane season. It has been easy for me to ignore the paths of named storms. Unless they were on their way to Bermuda of course.
Earlier this week Irma became the most catastrophic named storm to date. She wrecked havoc on lands of my Caribbean brothers and sisters. To those of Barbuda, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Anguilla and the Virgin Islands – you are in my prayers.
With limited connectivity and power for a mere 12 hours, I attempted to get updates on Irma via social media. Let’s say the enemy knows when and where to attack your spirit. It was a mere 5 minutes before I was reading complaints from Georgians about being without power.
Like most things in my life, I am learning every day how to be better than I was the day before. Relationships, for me, are a challenge to master.
Sure. I know how to treat people. But, do I always treat them that way? Nope. Not at all.
A friend of mines, Shannen, ask me about how we interact in relationships when we are emotional. We being women but this blog post is relevant to men as well.
I will share my insight on how emotions can harm your romantic relationships. But, I urge you to think about how they can affect other types of relationships. Such as your familial and friendships.
For me, it is easiest to talk about intimate relationships. It seems to resonate with readers. I guess because we are all struggle in some way or another to master relationships.
Before I continue, I would like to thank Shannen for this suggestion. I hope as you read these words you become aware of who you are in your relationships.
Ok. Ok. OK! Is it too late now to say SOOOORRYYYYY? I’ve been working really hard this last month and a half.
I have to start this blog post by humbling apologising. For those who were following my journalling series back in January. I started something that I knew I couldn’t finish.
But, being the ambitious girl that I am. *cue* the Wale track *cue* It was an unrealistic goal I set for myself. Knowing I could not commit to writing a new blog post EVERY SINGLE DAY. I went ahead and told myself I could do it.
Here we are almost 2 months later and SO MUCH has happened since January 31st. Like seriously! I won’t bore you with too many details but I do think it would be nice for you to know what’s been up with me. As well as where I plan to go for the rest of 2017.
