Jlissa's Journey

I don't know how to describe this blog. At first I didn't want to write a blog, because I enjoy my privacy too much. But I'm on a journey to get closer to God and to live my life authentically. And since this is a positive environment, I decided to just let it all out. Or as mush as I can.

  1. Why does it take me so long to do my hair

    Why does it take me so long to do my hair? I started washing it yesterday, and finished detangling it this morning. I used to wash my hair every other day. But not anymore.

    I measured it, and it's 16 inches long. Longer than the 14 inch weaves I used to wear. I don't know what to call it. It hits the top of my bra in the front, and almost the end of my shoulder blades in the back.

    This is the longest I've let it grow. Normally I cut it off when it's arm pit length. ...

  2. 59 days left until the end of the year

    59 days left until the end of the year. This has been an amazing year for me. Lots of emotional and spiritual growth. And learning what brings me joy. And getting cancerous people out of my life, so I can make room for positive people.

    Realizing that I do almost everything I dream about, got me so excited. I can barely sleep now. And every time I want to relax, my mind says get back to work. It really feels like a fire is blazing in me. And I absolutely know that everything is possible. ...
  3. Loving people again

    I just watched Oprah's life class and I was struck by her term "Energy suckers." I understand the concept, but I always called them vampires. People who seem to suck out your energy. Now I have a better term, lol.

    My fast is going well. I bought a case of Oreos for Halloween, and even though they were really tempting, I controlled myself. Although the people in my house didn't.

    This week I've been feeling so much joy and happiness. Because I feel completely ...

  4. I felt like a fake because I was part 2

    Yesterday was huge for me. These past 2 weeks have been huge for me. I've realized and understood so much.

    - When you're not living your truth you will feel miserable

    -Inside you know who you are. You know the truth. And when people lie to you, and try to label you as something you're not; even if your mind accepts it for a little while; your soul, your heart rejects it.

  5. I felt like a fake because I was

    For the past 3 years, I wanted to live an authentic life. Until recently I haven't felt like myself. I felt trapped and stuck inside of a deep pit. And couldn't get out.

    I wasn't doing the things I dreamed about doing. I wasn't meeting the people I wanted to meet. I wasn't learning everything I wanted to learn. And I couldn't understand why. Because it just wasn't like me. My life was fake because I wasn't being myself. I wasn't doing the things that made me feel good.
