Deceiving People Can Fool You 

There are some people out here who are deceiving. When you first meet them, they give you the impression that they have pure intentions. When in actuality their intentions are to feed their own selfish needs. Once you get to know the person on a deeper level. Certain things that they do starts to make sense. For example, when they come around other people everyone starts acting different towards them. When I say different I mean everyone is having a good time then suddenly, their mood turns sour. When a certain someone comes around. The vibe is thrown off. A person presence can tell you a bit about them.

Deceiving people can come in the forms of a friend, stranger, or family. They could be someone who’s rich or poor. You’re getting the point, right? If anyone ever fooled you into thinking they’re a sweet person and care about you. Then later they transformed into a person you don’t even recognize.  Don’t feel like you’re stupid. This happens to all of us. It shows you how you should be careful with trusting others. Everyone is not trustworthy.

Remember that deceiving people love taking advantage of the weak. Try not to show your vulnerability too quick. Some people can sense it quicker than others. Also, they will try to play mind games with you. I’m sure you’re catching my point by now. So, tell me have you ever encounter an incident with a deceiving person or people? Like you thought they were a good person but their goal the whole time was to trick you into thinking that. Let’s have a full discussion in the comment section.

Chilling on a Saturday 

Hey readers 😊 how is everyone doing? If you’re doing good then that’s great! It’s so gloomy ☁️ outside today. I sort of want the sun to come out. Gloomy weather makes me lazy 😫 and not want to go out. I don’t have any special plans for today. All I want to do is write and make YouTube videos. Do anyone else have plans? I’m going to try posting more posts today. It depends how today goes. Talk to everyone later!

4 Reasons Why You’re Not Consistent with Blogging

Blogging in general is tough when you try to have a consistent schedule. You want to have your full focus on your blog. Sometimes it doesn’t happen that way. Even when you want it to. I will tell you 4 reasons why you’re not consistent with blogging.

1) Your life outside of blogging is busy: Life outside your blogging world is probably hectic. Most of us do have crazy situations going on outside of the internet world. It’s tends to cause a big distraction.

2) Feel unmotivated: It’s sucks to not have any mojo about writing when that’s all you want to do. Feeling unmotivated is a case of laziness sometimes. It sucks you in and it’s hard to get out of. You probably feel unmotivated because people haven’t support you like they used to.

3) Overthinking a Topic: Over thinking a topic you want to blog about can turn into a big problem. If the topic is on your mind. Go ahead and write about it! Don’t hold back. Most of the time the topics we try not to write about end up getting good results. It’s like when you’re insecure about wearing an outfit to an event but end up receiving so many compliments on it. Life is about living with no regrets. Take advantage of it.

4) Feeling like your blog is boring: It’s normal to feel like your blog is boring to your readers. You only think that way because you aren’t getting enough feedback. The other reason that might make you feel this way is the fact that you’re not interested in your posts.

There will be a point in your blogging journey when you’ll be able to stay consistent. Balancing your time will help you out a bit. Just keeping pushing through. I promise you everything will start flowing the way you want it to.

Don’t Know What to Blog About? Here’s Tips for You!

There are days when bloggers struggle with what to write about. Most of the time our brains are burnt out from writing. Another problem is we may have posts already in our draft. We just don’t want to post them because it’s still not finish. Well, since I run into those problems like any other blogger. I thought I’ll give a few tips.

Don’t know what to blog about? Here’s Tips for You!

Take a day off – Even if you are concerned that you won’t get much traffic on your blogging day off. You can always re post your old blog posts on your social media account. It’s always a few people out there that haven’t read those posts already. Taking a break from blogging for a day or more can help you get yourself together. Your brain should relax sometimes.

Be Honest with Your Readers – Explain to your readers you don’t know what to blog about for that day. Maybe you can switch roles and ask them what are topics you should write about. I’m sure they will like that.

Plan Ahead of Time – Planning ahead of time isn’t always easy. Some of us don’t have extra time to do that. Try your best to start a schedule. Maybe your planning days can start on Sunday. That will give you time to plan for the next coming up week.

Buy a Writing Prompt Book – You can buy a writing prompt book from Barnes and Noble and Books-a-million. I brought two of my books from Barnes and Noble. They’re not expensive at all. So, you don’t have to worry about spending lots of money on one. It’s good to have one on your writer’s block days. There are so many random topics that you could write about.

These are the two books that I have.

 

 

 

 

 

Google Topics to Write About – Of course, it is common sense to go on the internet and search topics to write about. There are plenty of other good websites that gives you new ideas.

Before you go…

Before you go I’m going to give you a few topics to write about. I wasn’t going to let you leave without helping you out some more. Don’t worry I got you!

1) Worst babysitting experience

2) Experience moving to a new state

3) What’s your family tradition during Christmas or Thanksgiving

4) Favorite Vacation

5) Goals for this Fall

6) Embarrassing moment you had in public

7) One thing you hate about social media

8) First time you lost something important to you

Why Long Distance Relationships are Special

Most people can’t handle being in a LDR (long distance relationship). They always feel like they need their partner around 24/7. Don’t get me wrong people in an LDR want the same, but we’re not as clingy. We are strong enough to handle not being physically around our significant other, any temptation that might try to break up our relationship, and the negative opinions that are said about our relationships. Even though, we will love to have our boyfriend or girlfriend around us we are able to remain faithful to them. There is no such thing of not being able to handle a long distance relationship because if you really care or love someone genuinely you won’t even give them a suspicion of questioning your loyalty. I mean don’t get me wrong I know some couples go through situations and if the solution to their problems is breaking up that’s fine. Long distance relationships are built for people who don’t mind taking sacrifices and being patient. Lord knows it’s hard to have patience when you want to see the person you love in person every day. Long distance relationships are special because not too many people can boldly say that they had enough courage to stay in their relationship without distance affecting the way they love their significant other.  Question for my readers: What makes your long distance relationship special?

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.

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.
