2018 transition has officially been the hardest New Year’s Eve transition with a fatal business move that got me on my ass
However being a business owner , the only person I can blame for this failure is me.
But like any harsh lesson, it has so much rewards in gaining new wisdom. Please be patient with me as I get to find refuge in my Cancerian shell and gain growth from my current chaos while closing my butthole from this temporary sodomy 😬

We made some fudge #brownies and toasted almond #biscotti (which I can’t wait to dunk in some coffee tomorrow morning). I also love a little salt with my sweet, so I went #saltbae and sprinkled some over the #ganache. 🍫
I loved piping these adorable little #spritzcookies in class today! Topped them with raspberry preserves before baking. So cute! 😍
Slow Cooked Short Rib Empanada
An appetizer full of flavor !
the word(s) used to describe me often? Bubbly.
It’s not me though.
It’s my energy.
God, Yahweh, the universe, they conspired and blessed me with a positive energy. sometimes people tell me I have kind eyes.
that’s my energy.
sometimes, I get that there’s just SOMETHING about me. can’t put their finger on it.
and you have it too. in fact, your power is in the energy that you exude daily. not talking about physical energy. you might call it...presence. and there are people scheming on you, right the hell now, to try to get a piece of that.
it’s like when you were in grade school, and your mom packed your lunch bag, and you had the bestest snacks ever, and all de pickney wid dey grubby hands tried to cop some. in some cases, you let them rock. in others...you kept your goodies to yourself. sometimes that was the right call. sometimes...it’s not.
your energy, your PRESENCE, it’s coveted. it’s part of why a little girl named Oprah is one of the most respected women in the entire world. it’s why people love to hate Barack Obama. sure, some of it is about the color of their skin. but it’s mostly about their energy. even when they do wrong...you just want to be AROUND them. you want to absorb their energy.
but yo. I’m telling allyuh to preserve your energy.
your energy is beautiful. it’s your life force. and those days when you’re exhausted? when you’ve slept and slept and still nothing? when you know damn well what you need to do but you’re just drained af? someone...in your life...is draining your energy. they don’t know how to deal with their own, so they came to borrow yours. like you borrow sugar from a neighbor - with no real intention to give it back.
protect your energy.
I’m not saying you can’t share a little. there’s being selfish...and being SELFISH. there is a difference. and if you’re unsure of the difference...then this might not be your lesson for today. I’ll explain it another time. but if you dig deep enough...you’ll get it.
protect your energy. preserve it. it’s yours to give.
