D-Xirably Unbalanced!!! (2.16.2021)

Last post and this one is for me. My body is out of whack. Something is very wrong. I can’t figure it out but I can feel it... I need time to think things through. I’ve been doing way too much... Something is very off balanced... I need to do some inner work. I have to figure out what’s off...

Signing off for now... I need to regroup!

With love,

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.13.2021)

 Hello loves,

It was another busy day today but at least I got a nap in. Yay! My back still hurts but I decided to do some stretches to ease the pain a bit. Gotta love some yoga poses!

 I’ve had my niece and little sister over all week so that has been keeping me super busy. And then I had my nephew over a few days this week with my niece. And tonight we will have them both. My niece and nephew are busy bodies and they like their attention so I try to play with them as much as I can. 

Things are definitely not back balanced yet but the nap helped a lot today.

I didn’t even have time to listen to some music today or watch a lot of TV. I did get a walk in today. It’s literally the only moment I get alone. So every day I walked this week was basically the only time I had alone... It’s all good, though. I have faith that things will sort themselves out soon.

A picture I took from my walk

That’s all I have for now. My nephew is calling for his TT!

Also, that voice! Ahhh! I can listen to this person sing all day! 😉

I found the song for today:

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.12.2021)

 Hello loves,

It has been a rough week... I’m having a hard time keeping up with everything. And I have been having back pain since last Thursday which makes it hard to sleep at night. It sucks because all I want to do is rest but the pain wakes me up... 

Anyways, I got to enjoy a few self-care moments today. Here they are:

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.12.2021)
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s: Cinderella

I watched “Rodgers and Hammerstein’s: Cinderella on Disney+ today with my little sister. It’s one of my favorite movies!!! I just love it!!! Such a dreamy and romantic movie!!! Two songs stuck out to me - “Sweetest Sounds” and “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful!” 

‘Am I making believe I see in you
A man too perfect to be really true?
Do I want you because you're wonderful,
Or are you wonderful because I want you?’

It’s Friday!!! That means plant watering day!!! I say it excitingly even though it felt like a chore this week and last week. I had/have so much going on but it had to be done. 

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.12.2021)
My kalanchoe baby!!!

This is my kalanchoe baby. This is an old picture of her when she first flowered. She has grown a little bit now but she’s in an awkward stage. Still beautiful but she has two stems of flowers poking out from her now.

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.12.2021)
Fantasia “When I See You”

This is one of the songs that came to my mind today. Fantasia “When I See You”! I love this song. 

‘I lay my head on my pillow
Staring out the window
Wish on a star for a sign
You're the reason why
You're always on my mind’

The other song was Aaliyah “I Care 4 U”. I’ve always been a big fan of Aaliyah!

Hope you enjoyed the post!

And yay for a 3 day weekend! 
Maybe my back will let me sleep long enough on one of the days!

With love,
LaTasha B.

D-Xirable Poem!!! (2.11.2021)

 Hello loves,

If you know me, I write poetry. I write all of the time. I just don’t normally post it. I used to but after I lost my  childhood friend Tabitha, I didn’t have the heart to post them anymore. In fact, the last one you will really see posted on this blog is the one that I wrote for her funeral... I tried to post a couple after that on my poetry blog and Wattpad but I couldn’t...

Writing poetry is a form of self-care for me. 
And I think it’s time I post one... 
I have some stuff to release...

“The Load I Carry”

2.11.2021


The load I carry,

Is actually quite heavy.

I’m trying to be strong —

I’m trying to be rock steady.


I’m tired though,

But I still carry it.

Finding love in it all,

Makes it kind of scary.


Can they help with the load?

Or will it break them too?

I didn’t mean to ignore them—

It’s just a lot I’m going through.


Do I let them in?

Do I let them know?

That I’ve been hurt in the past—

But I’m trying to let it go.


If I were more straightforward 

I’d say it out loud

I have feelings for you 

I like you but I fear being lost in the crowd


I fell in love with the music

But I was trying to get to know ya

I may have hurt you now/shut you out

But I’m trying to show you...


I’ve shown my cards

I’ve dealt my hand

Either you will or you won’t

Understand


I like to laugh and joke

All of the time...

I like, how are you doing

And are you going to be fine?


I like someone direct,

Tell me what you know

I love movies too —

And what’s your favorite show?


I’m really simple

But my moods are complex

I guess you know now

The question is, what happens next?

Hope you enjoy the poem!

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.8.2021)

Hello loves,

I honestly haven’t had much time for self-care this past week. I’ve just been super busy taking care of family stuff at the moment.... There’s just so much going on right now...

However, I did manage to get out for a walk today for a moment of self-care. It was so cold outside but it had to be done.

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.8.2021)
A pic of the sidewalk.
It reminded of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day for some reason...

D-Xirable Moments!!! (2.8.2021)

I honestly, don’t know when I’ll get to post more self-care moments. Things are so busy and there’s still so much to do this week...

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the short post!!!

With love,

“Feeling Your Mind & Body as a Lake Meditation”

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)

 Hello loves,

I haven’t posted in a while because it has been a busy week. I didn’t carve out much time for self-care on a daily basis this week. However, I did enjoy some moments of self-care during the week. 

Here were some of my self-care moments:

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)
The name of the restaurant I went to - Sushi Haru!

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)
The super yummy and delicious Spicy Crab roll I ate!

I ate some sushi on Thursday! I’ve been craving sushi for months now and noticed that we had a sushi place right around the corner from my apartment. It’s called “Sushi Haru.” The spicy crab roll was so delicious! I can’t wait to go back! I definitely considered this a self-care moment as I enjoyed every bite of this! This came with 8 rolls by the way, I had just devoured 2 of them when I took this photo.

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)
My beautiful Pothos plant!

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)
Another pic of my Pothos plant!

Friday was plant watering day of course! I love when it’s time to water my plant! Seeing my plants makes me happy! This is my bigger Pothos plant. This photo is the best I can get for now since it’s in my plant stand. This photo doesn’t really show her length. She’s actually wrapped around this plant stand several times. Anyways, she’s the beauty that I wanted to show today. This Pothos was given to me by my mom. Her Pothos plant grew so big that she gave me a piece of it to grow my own. So sweet!

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)
Naked’s Strawberry Banana Juice!

Today, I started my day by organizing my room a bit. I organized my table, the top of my storage cube, and the top of my tote by the door. It looks a lot better now. I have more organizing to do still but it was nice to tidy up a bit while I had time to do it.

After I organized my room a bit, I had breakfast and drank some of my favorite juice. I love this Strawberry Banana juice by @nakedjuice!

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)
A photo from my walk!

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.21.2021-1.23.2021)

I went on a short walk outside to get some air! I love nature. Nature is so beautiful!

11:Eleven Care Co’s “Calm It Down” Scrub

I started my day with a nice, relaxing bath using this lavender scrub, “Calm It Down” from @11elevencareco!

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.18.2021)
Melanated Essentials “Zen Meditation” Essential Oil Roll-On

I used this “Zen Meditation” blend by @melanated_essentials for my next step of self-care. The plan was to do a meditation shortly after I put it on my neck and wrist, however, I didn’t do meditation until the end of the day.

D-Xirable Moments!!! (1.18.2021)
I listened to “Experience Your Mind Like an Ocean Meditation”

I couldn’t connect with the first meditation that I chose tonight so I did another one. The second meditation was “Experience Your Mind Like an Ocean Meditation” recorded by @ms.melanatedessentials! It was 12 minutes long. I connected with this one a lot better than the first one.

Hope you enjoyed the post!

Sincerely,
LaTasha B.
