Problem With WordPress

Hey readers, for some reason WordPress been acting weird for the past two and a half days. I have the app on my phone. When I try to write a post and save it in my draft on my phone it shows an error. Another thing I did was delete the app off my phone. Then I downloaded it right back on my phone. I’m still having problems with the app. I did notice they updated the phone app also.  Even when I try to reply back to people comments on my blog it won’t let me also. Good thing I can post from my WordPress admin. If it wasn’t for that then I probably wouldn’t be able to post like I want to.

Is anyone else experiencing any weird problems with WordPress? I don’t know if it’s because I did the new update that’s why it’s acting up or what. Hopefully the problem is going to get fixed. I’m going to give the developer’s time to fix the problem also.

First Time Traveling Alone 😮😐🤗

Hey, readers, after a year of not seeing my boyfriend. I’m finally traveling to NY to see him. I miss being around him in person. For those of you who don’t know. I am in a long distance relationship. Check out my post about long distance relationships. My boyfriend lives in New York, USA and I live in South Carolina, USA. We don’t get to see each other often because traveling is EXPENSIVE! So, now I have a chance to see him this weekend. Y’all just don’t know how happy I am. Plus, his mom wedding is this weekend too! That’s going to be exciting. The only part I’m worried about is traveling alone because it’s my first time. I pray that I have a safe trip. I’m going to feel so lonely without my mom and sister with me. Also, it will be my first time visiting New York so that’s another nerve wrecking thing. I shouldn’t worry too much cause I know my boyfriend will make me feel comfortable there. Everyone pray that I have a safe trip going there. I’m leaving this evening and arrive there in the morning. I’ll be sure to share my experience. Have a nice day everyone. I’ll be back later lol.

Maybe it’s a Sign for Me… 

Recently, I kept seeing the word resilience. I’m assuming this word was maybe a sign for me. No matter what I read or heard on tv this word kept popping up. So, I decided to search for the meaning of this word. When I read the meaning it was relevant to what’s going on with my life now. I guess I can say maybe it’s a sign from God.

 A Better Understanding of the Word

Origin of Word: Latin

 Definition from 1) the power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after being bent, compressed, or stretched; elasticity. 2) ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like; buoyancy.

How many times have I seen the word? 4

I know I am not the only one that had this experience. Have any of you kept seeing a certain sign that you thought was for you? Like it seems like no matter what do or where you go. The sign or word keeps showing up. I’m a firm believer in everything that we acknowledge in life is meant for us to know.

I Drove Myself Crazy 

Readers I drove myself CRAZY!! Honestly, July doesn’t feel like a good blogging month for me. It seems like too much is going on. I know soon it’s going to get hard trying to balance blogging and going back to school on campus. There are so many blog posts in my drafts that I haven’t published because they are not “good enough” yet. I came to the conclusion that I’m putting too much pressure on myself. For this month I might just do freestyle writing. I’m just going to go with the flow with my thoughts and publish some posts. Maybe I taught myself a lesson to stop putting pressure on myself and over thinking. Some of you probably been wondering why I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do. Another thing that was on my mind was am I throwing my blog focus off. I shouldn’t think that way because I gave it the name reflection of Des for a reason. Everything through my blog is a reflection of myself and a way to help others through my experiences. Y’all will see me posting again soon. Talk to everyone later 😊. I feel so relieved to get this off my mind.

Writers with Anxiety Create Great Ideas

Since anxiety causes you to think nonstop and replay events in your head. It can lead to creating ideas out of life situations. As a writer, you always need fresh ideas so anxiety helps out in its own special way. You have to think about this in a positive way. When your thoughts are running miles in your head while you’re trying to sleep. Get yourself up and start writing down every thought that comes to mind.

Each one of your thoughts may connect together. Even if it doesn’t you have more than one idea for your next writing project. Are you getting my point so far? I bet as a writer you may not have thought about how anxiety can help you. I understand anxiety bothers you. It’s not easy to deal with.

Now it’s time to think of it as something positive. We don’t have to view anxiety as a negative thing anymore. Who would’ve thought anxiety will help a writer write better. Take anxiety as a blessing and not a curse. Every writer is special in their own way. We all use certain techniques to help us with writing.

Don’t Judge People or Their Life

Everyone has their own life struggles to deal with. Life loves throwing obstacles in our way. Even when we try to avoid them. It’s our jobs to stay positive and take some control. When someone is going through a difficult situation don’t judge their decisions. They’re doing what fits best for their situation.

Even though you may not understand it just let everything flow. Do not I repeat do not say things to hurt their feelings neither. Be wise with your choice of words. The person can easily take their anger, pain, and frustration out on you. I can guarantee you they have everything bottled up inside. Why would you want to say hurtful things to someone anyway? No one in this world is perfect.

Judging someone just because their life doesn’t glitter in gold like yours. Shouldn’t be the reason you think you’re better than anyone. Remember words do hurt. One day life is well. Then in a split second everything gets taken away from you. You can find yourself put through a similar situation as a person you judged. Stay humble. You always need to watch what you say to people. You better pray or hope the person has a good heart to forgive you. Then lend you some help. Not everyone will be open to care for someone who gave them harsh judgment on their life.

Letter to You…

You don’t know about my silent cries at night. You’ll never understand how much I still hurt inside from your mistakes. I’m so damage to the point I don’t think I can love anyone anymore. There is an emptiness in my heart. Nothing can make it feel whole again. Sometimes I blame myself for not leaving when I had ways out. Every time I tell you the truth you can handle it. I can’t stick around with someone who damages my heart. You were my first heartbreak. I was never the since that day or shall I say night. As I’m writing this my face is stained with tears. That shit stills hurt! Every time it replays in my head. The pain still feels fresh in my heart. Even though I want someone special in my life. I don’t think I’ll be able to love them like I want to. I’ll be stuck in fear that they will intentionally break my heart. I hate that it has to be this way.
