October Update ~Venus

Hey everyone! I know it’s been a minute since I wrote a post. I haven’t been blogging as much but I plan on posting more often. I’ve had a quite a bit going on & I’m trying to get back focused. I have done a few radical things this month. I worked on my goal of investing myself by investing in Being the One marriage training. It was a webinar by Natasha & Jamal Miller from Married & Young. Married & Young is a ministry that helps Christian singles, engages couples, & married couples. The training gave me a deeper insight into what marriage is about…I learned more about the inner work that a person has to do prior to marriage & how the way a person was raised affects their marriage. I also learned that the issues that a husband & wife has individually is brought into a marriage..They have to learn how to deal with those things & grow together spiritually. I learned more than I what I mentioned. I just wrote the things that I could think of at the top of my head. Lol!  The training was very intense (three hours) but very helpful! I know what to expect whenever I do get married. I know that my future husband & I will have to go get marital counseling. I’m still single but I don’t think that there is anything wrong w/ learning more about marriage since it is something that I desire. I know that are more things that I need to work on. 😉 Last month I worked on my goal of investing in myself by investing in a life coach for six weeks. The investment was a sacrifice but I think that I got a lot of it! My life coach (Carla) was someone that I already knew. The assignments that she gave me really challenged me & made me more aware of myself. Carla & I had a teleconference call once a week.

This month I attended two high school football games( homecoming game on Oct. 9th & senior night on Oct. 30th). My little cousin Trey is on the football team for his high school. Both of the games I attended my cousin’s high school football team won. I like that I was able to spend time with family at the football games. My mom, a few of my family members, & I attended the homecoming game. Yesterday my mom, Pris (my next door neighbor back home), few of my family members, & I attended senior night yesterday.  Last night at the game, the seniors that were cheerleaders, in the band, & on the football team were recognized w/ their parents on the field. I’m glad that I was able to be part of a special moment. I also liked that the football team, cheerleaders, & football fans wore pink to support breast cancer awareness.

God bless!


P.S. I hope that everyone had a good Halloween! I have two roommates moving in tomorrow the apartment. Eek! I’ve gotten used to having the apartment to myself so it will be an adjustment dealing w/ roommates. One of my friends (Kat) is I’m town for the weekend so I’ve been enjoying the extra company. 😉 The time will be changing tomorrow. Don’t forget to set back your clock by one hour.

    Sounds like you’ve done a lot. Kudos to you! Seems like you’ve also picked up socially
    One thing I will say about marriage (yes prepare as much as you can) but honestly a lot of this is trial and error. What if your spouse doesn’t want to do marital counseling? There are some X factors when dealing with another person. But if you have two people willing to be patient and supportive it’ll all fall into place 🙂 good luck

      Thank you Nee! I would have to figure out another solution if my spouse didn’t want to do marital counseling. However, I think that pre-marital counseling and marital counseling is important. I wouldn’t want to get married without going through pre-marital counseling first. Thanks for the luck and advice! I understand that there are some things that you have to learn by experience (i.e. trial and error).
