A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went to a cute little cafe for lunch. It was a chilly fall Saturday, and I was in the mood for soup and a sandwich. We get to the restaurant and see that it’s busy, as it typically is. I knew what I wanted and was getting excited for the comfort food that would soon be entering my belly. We get to the front and I tell the cashier my order. “I’m sorry ma’am we’re out of that for the day,” the cashier replies to my order, crushing my hopes and dreams (disclaimer: if this post sounds a little dramatic and ridiculous, it’s because it is). Annoyed, I tell my boyfriend to place his order, while I scramble to look at the menu and quickly pick another option. After we order, we go to sit down and wait for our food to come out. After a few minutes, my boyfriend’s food is delivered to the table. I start to get excited, assuming mine must be coming close behind. I continue to wait and watch other people’s food as it gets delivered to their table. I start to realize my boyfriend’s food is going to be cold by the time mine gets delivered. I try to persuade him to begin to eat so he could enjoy his food while it was hot. I’m unsuccessful and we continue to sit there waiting on my food. I slowly start to become more and more annoyed. Next, I look up and see something that maybe you can relate to.
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays and I love dressing up for it. All through out college, I always wanted to go to costume parties but never really had any to go to….. until about two years ago!! Once I had the parties to go to, that’s when my creative juices started flowing. Thinking of a costume and then creating it is all part of the fun for me. While I am guilty of being your typical popular costumes in the past (cat, lion, Pocahontas), I always like to pick the most creative costume I can think of.
With that being said, here’s a look back at some of my Halloween costumes from the past two years!

Hurting People Hurt People.
Have you ever been so angry that it seems like nothing can calm you down? It’s almost like no matter what anyone says, nothing can provide relief to the intense rage filling up inside of you. I had a situation happen recently that really tested me y’all…. I mean REALLY tested me. About two weeks ago at my church, my Pastor delivered a message titled ‘Dealing with Difficult People’. It was such a good message, but honestly one at the time that I hadn’t really fully experienced. I generally hate confrontation and really do just want to get along with everyone. I’ve also been fortunate and really haven’t had to deal with anyone who has persecuted me, been ugly to me, or just out right mean. So while it was a great message, I didn’t think it was something I could put to use, until recently.
