The urge to touch him has overwhelmingly consumed my mind. Every thought filters towards him. Reminiscing on the precious moments distracts me from the present. I don’t want to move forward from this. Content with being stuck in time I hold on dearly to every memory of him. As the seasons pass and our seed grow it’s becoming impossible to plant new beginnings. I’ve come to realization that one day I will wake up and the vision of us will fade, but right now I’m afraid to let go 💔

As a human being, you will experience pain. That is inevitable. But, in some cases you can choose which pain you’ll experience.
.

You can choose immediate gratification with no long term payoff…or you can choose to have current pain for greater returns down the line.
.
Self-discipline is doing what you know you have to do to accomplish your goals whether you feel like it or not.
It means reigning in your appetites, emotions, and inclinations to help you achieve something that’s farther down the line.
.

It takes self-discipline to start a profitable business.
.

It takes self-discipline to move to an unfamiliar place.
.

It takes self-discipline to stick with one task until it is 100% complete.
.

It takes self-discipline to not browse the Internet at work.
.

It takes self-discipline to forgive people who wronged you at one time.
.

Self-discipline inevitably leads to self-mastery, where greater success comes to you at a faster rate (Isn’t it exciting?). 😉😀
.

This is all great and all…but first you must realize that you must sacrifice. You must sacrifice the immediate gratification of what you want for what you need to do. It is non negotiable.
.
Why does this matter?
.

It’s always “I’ll get to it later”. Well, you may never have a “later”. You have a fully functioning mind right now. Will that be the case later? Who knows, bro?🤔
.
So YOU DECIDE?! How will you suffer? I know I’m sacrificing A LOT right now. And I have a CLEAR vision, clear GOALS and I will execute every single day. No regret here.

💕WHENEVER you can, WHEREVER you can ALWAYS put in time towards your research. I make it a habit to use 95% of the free moments I have towards my dissertation proposal. Every moment helps when you are a full time student, assistant, teacher, friend, mentor, daughter, sister and most importantly for me a Tee Tee. So make it a habit to use your time wisely💕

I'm reading The Broken Girls and I feel like it's the first ghost novel I've ever read, or at least the first in so many years that I can't remember the last.
I'm not too far into it, but it's alright so far. I'm not shaking in my boots or anything, but check back with me after a couple more chapters.
Since the novel focuses around an old boarding school, I thought I'd bring this along with me to mom's classroom. (See my last post for more cool shots from my day today)
It's so eerie being in school buildings when school is out, especially when it's the school you used to attend.
Also, I'm sure you're seeing those dope ceilings. Swipe for more ceiling artwork from my mom's previous students.

"We are few and we are happy and uninterested in weapons and war, but we can protect ourselves." 🖤 . .

I have had my eye on Binti for a while and after finally reading it this past week, let me tell you, I should have read it much sooner.
Binti is an amazing protagonist with a clear, proud voice and a page turning story to boot. When she makes the powerful decision to leave home for the first time to follow her dreams of attending a prestigious university, she encounters more than what she bargained for. Entangled in a web of war, violence and segregation, Binti must fight to make a place for herself in a world that views her as an anomaly.

I simply could not, would not put this down and managed to devour it in one sitting. Complete with math, science, aliens, and miraculous adventure, the Binti series is one I am continuing to follow.
Binti: 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤/5

number 37! 😉 Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs. This is the third book in a series, I LOVED the first two! Also pictured is one of my favorite bibles the NIV Bible for Women 💖 #glambistrobookshare

one of my favorite reads from last year 😊.
.
I was thinking about those books we find at random; the books we aren't searching high and low for. I have at least a 10 book search-list with me at all times, in case I find myself in a browsing mood, but The Thirteenth Tale is one that was never on that list. I think that's really fitting, for this book especially.
.
My most recent read had the best quote pertaining to finding unplanned reads: "Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers. How delightful if that were true."
