Mylah is “IN” & She speaks:

Hello Hello!

So its page 20 out of 365 today and its after 1AM my time and my mind is at work. I have been feeling very up and down, moody all day and realized that since 2014 began, things have come across as a REAL game changer for Me. I knew that when this year began I was going to let go of several things not to mention 3 major obstacles involving family, past crush or love encounters and friendships but its truly easier said than done. For the last 3 weeks, I have been trying to come to terms with how to make Myself a better and stronger Me and how to keep Myself happy and at peace and I guess the answers comes day by day but trust Me, it really isnt easy to come by. All I know is that I need to remain strong, stay faithful & continue to pursue my dreams and maintain mental stability; not letting one awful day be the end of my world.

And on that note, I chose this caption to remind myself that not everyday will be easy but try to find a good thing in everyday because life is too short to muss and fuss over things and people who are most likely not fussing and such over You! Love yourself, continue to stay positive and through difficult times, have faith and optimism (yes, it is not easy I know, just have to try).

Peace & love xo,

Whether religious or not, I found this picture to be extremely motivating and perfect for the mood I have been in lately. To all of you fellow tumblrs, I would just like to say remember that though with everyday that passes, the greatest gift anyone could ask for is being able to wake up in the morning and be grateful for another chance at LIFE! I have been back in school for 3 weeks now after taking a much needed hiatus and it is safe to say that though I went back in feeling more confident then ever, I still at this point included still have my doubts and reservations about my future. I know I want to pursue Journalism but I also want to expand my horizons and make sure that I get a University degree that will allow me to be flexible no matter the career road I take. I love working with people and interacting with people. I love learning about how people work together and function in society; hence, I love Me some Sociology! I am most definately considering a career that can allow Me to use my writing skills and work alongside people ! Journalist? Academic Advisor? Teacher? I am expanding my horizons! Thats what God had intented for Me to continue figuring out with each passing blessed day that I wake up and carry out my day!

To all, I hope that you continue to find your purpose in the world, I love to inspire and push forth motivational words so! Happy Thursday & here was some food for thought :)

Stay tuned for more from Me!

Single parent living : A Closer Look

Mylah is “IN” & she speaks :

Hello Hello All!

Happy almost Summer 2014!

The weather here in my beautiful city of Montreal has been pretty good to Us. A few cloudy with chance of real down pour but hey, no complaints because the most wonderful thing is currently happening : NO SNOW! YAY!

SO, in reference to the topic at hand, I decided to fill you all in on my outlook of single parent living because it is a subject that has taken place in my life and I would like to briefly address my pros and cons to it and my overall statement and feelings towards the matter. Now, I do not believe this is the most ideal way of living with all the crazy situations that transpire from this lifestyle; from maturing into a beautiful and well rounded male or female to enduring the utmost hardships and triumphs that take place without the other parent present can be very traumatic, overwhelming and at most saddening. I for one grew up with just my mother at home. My father was around and I was very close with both my grandmothers who helped raise me. I can respectfully say that I love living with my mother and she is by far the most tremendous and strongest person I know. She had me at a young age and has never once steered me wrong and still to this day continues to have my very best interest at heart and partakes in taking care of me. My father on the other hand, we are not as close and have a very strained relationship; almost close to non-existent but yet I still feel that I am a stronger person for being in this type of family-type situation. 

In regards to the lifestyle of single parent living, besides the cons previously stated, one must obviously consider if the parent is deemed ‘fit’ to have a relationship and let alone engage in a bond with their child in regards to more extensive matter (i.e different types of abuse, wilful absent parenting). In my case, my father was very much apart of my life up until I was 11.5 years of age when our relationship became distant when I had resided in Toronto for 5 years. The relationship has for sure deteriorated since I have returned back to Montreal and its just been ‘hell-bent’ since. 

The pros however to the single parent living is naturally to not have any cases of abuse and neglect present around the upbringing or ever for the child but more so the child ( I was lucky) to have other members of the family and close friends take part in my life as often as possible. The lacklustre relationship with my father of course did some extensive damage but I believe that I am still truly blessed that I have had many people who have entered into my life that have stated and those who came and went and as I look at it, served a purpose for that window of time to help me cope along the way. Today I can say that though I would love for things to be different with my father, I am at a place where I can handle day by day remembering that having a relationship is a two-way street and showing any signs of abuse will NOT be tolerated period. 

Single parent living definitely has things to take into account whether good or bad but I strongly feel, that lifestyle is far from the worst and I truly believe that anyone that has endured that is a stronger individual because of it. I know I am.

This was tough for me to discuss with you all but I feel this venue allows me to express my deepest feelings and lets others know they are never ever ALONE in any circumstance and ultimately someone cares for the other and vice versa all around this beautiful place call Earth.

STAY TUNED, now that its just at the cusp of summer, I should be blogging away more! No excuses! Happy reading, blogging, take care xoxo.

Keep Calm & Move On, Staying Optimistic of course

Hello fellow bloggers and readers, 

Its official ! Schools out for Summer!! Exams are done now bring on the hopefully summer festivities and of course workflow so to speak! I am literally relieved that schools is out simply because I can now take this summer to engage in some real soul searching and R&R which believe Me, is oh so much needed. This semester back at university after taking the fall 2013 semester off was really life-changing and bittersweet. I went in with high hopes and left feeling defeated yet knowing their is more in store for me and that God has plans for me that will work itself out in the end. For those who have read my previous blog about my saga in my academic endeavours, will know that I still remain to have a strong passion in journalism and had applied for the journalism program offered at my university and unfortunately got rejected due to better competition. In any case, I did feel the pain from the rejection e-mail but realized that despite the outcome, I will be okay, I have great supporters who believe that I will make it and be successful no matter where I end up.

I have decided that I will still keep hold of my journalistic dreams by blogging much more this summer and so forth and to pursue trade school studies as an Administrative Receptionist come the end of August and continue my academic journey on another path. I pray that this opens all doors for me and maybe who knows, I can be interning at the Gazette or Elle Canada some day starting as an Administrative Secretary and moving on up (ah the dream) ! Will see! For now, I am content on enjoying my summer, staying busy working and spending time with my boyfriend, my friends and my family and of course keeping you guys posted on the upcoming POV pieces and personal entries I have in future!

On that note, take care & tune in again soon!

lots of love xo;
