The nest isn't big enough for the both of us….

   Welcome back everyone!!! I just wanted to give a quick shout out to all my loyal viewers, thank you for stopping by twice a week to read my content and to those of you who comment on my posts with kinds words of encouragement and useful tips. Your support does not go unnoticed, it hasn’t been a month since I’ve started my blog and it has already received over 300 page views!!!! (whoooooo)

   I am so proud of myself for being consistent and staying motivated when my odds seemed bleak!

   Today’s topic has much to do with my personal life and current circumstances. A new addition has been added in my household, which is a positive overall and a realization of my time at home. It has really made me focus more on what my future should look like. Earlier this week I registered for my last semester of my undergraduate career!!!
   I am beyond excited and thrilled and feel totally validated; I overcame and have made it to the finish line!! Please leave comments about your feelings during your last semester at university or post high school education; what did you major in and why?
   I am registered to take my LSAT this June and, determined to attend my first semester in law school Fall of 2018. So, I have a pretty clear idea of what I want to do after undergrad, but I don’t have any idea of where I want to go (to live) and start that chapter of my life. Back to my home situation, I have always enjoyed my own space, been responsible for bills, etc., and had a great pride in being independent.

   I have prayed about the day where I wouldn’t live with family and I’d really be “free”, I am somewhat free now but not how I would like (if that makes sense).

So, my dilemma is how do I know when my time is up?

1.      When you get excited when no one is home?
2.    You get annoyed when someone harasses you while you’re in the bathroom?
3.    When you must specifically schedule time to occupy areas of the house?

I’m pretty much experiencing all the above, in addition to my longtime boyfriend wanting me to move in with him…
I tend to overthink and highly scrutinize… you know the whole pros and cons list or in some cases skipping that and just thinking about all the things that could go wrong.
I am so use to having a plan and then a backup plan and then a backup plan to that backup plan. But, then I have moments of deep thought about my only ONE life I have, and at this very moment I’ll never be this young again with all that I have now, so why not go with it? Why not live? Why not take the risk? I’ll never know what something is like if I never give it a try.

I will keep you guys updated!!! For now, leave me comments of what point in your life you had to make a big decision, what motivated you? Was it intuition? Family? Or pure risk (going with the flow)?
Additional update I have uploaded a new tutorial on my YouTube channel so make sure to check that out and if you haven’t already check out the video that correlates with my last post “Affirmations aren’t realistic”.

Thanks for stopping by make sure to like, comment, subscribe to this site and all my social media sites!!! Leave me comments and suggestions!!!

Xoxox, Toni 


  1. I love your post, I have had to make major decisions at to points in my life. Once when my daughter was killed and I had to raise her daughter, and one recently when I decided to start selling my body scrubs and look for another job at the same time. I guess I could say I had come to the point where I needed a change. Great post and keep your head up and make sure you get that me time.

  2. thank you for sharing your story!! you're very strong.....your comment is very inspiring and has motivated me.

  3. Great post, Toni. Congratulations on your achievements.

  4. Tough decisions are a part of life. I will say that if you move from one person's home into another person's home, that's like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. I know that's the popular course these days. But popular doesn't always equal right. I'd would weight that decision very carefully.

    1. Thank you for the honesty. I appreciate it!


Please be insightful, polite, and accurate in all statements. Negativity is not permitted!
Thanks, Toni

I've packed you a bag.....Winter it's time for you to leave! The seasons have finally changed, time to break out tho...
