Emotionally Immature Parents

Let me start off by saying, I love my parents! This morning I was triggered by a IG post talking about emotionally immature parents, it set my creativity meter on flames, hear me out. My mother will tell you every chance she gets that she got married straight out of high school because she wanted to get out of her parents house. My mother is reactionary, she’s not a deep thinker, I brought up the fact that she could of found some roommates and moved into a apartment, that thought never crossed her mind, instead, she married a wild and immature boy like my father, who had no business tying the knot with a woman who he had no intentions of being faithful to. Two years later I enter the picture, thats extra responsibilities that these two couldn’t handle plus I was born with a birth defect so that put more weight on their shoulders. My dad checked out emotionally, he became aggressive and unreliable, he soon left my mother and I to fend for ourselves in this cold cold world. So do you know what I got growing up? A heavy dose of resentment towards my parents. Then I had to become the bigger person and forgive them both. They both did the best they could but reality prevailed at the end, really they were doomed from the start because both of their intentions wasn’t geared towards growth and love, it was geared towards leaving a situation without a plan and then bringing a baby into the mix. Today both of my parents have remarried and they are living their best lives and I am so proud of them both. My goal is to reach the energy levels when I was at my best, when I was 4 years old, I was witty, courageous, I didn’t care what people had to say and my heart didn’t experience any heartbreak. So, in closing, the essence of that 4 year old boy is what I seek in meditation, I love him immensely, he is with me always.

Producing your own food vs Hunting

Let me start by saying that I am not against hunting, but I plan on producing my own food more than hunting. Homesteading works for me because I am a 100 percent homebody, my kids and grandkids get to share in the experience of the mystery of life, that’s a win win!

My journey raising chickens

I haven’t raised chickens since I was a kid so I’m using 75% muscle memory and 25% YouTube videos😂 I’m one week in and I must admit, raising chicken is very therapeutic. I have them in my 8×10 shed in a 100 gallon aquarium (brooder) with a heat lamp. Each day I make sure they have fresh food, water, and pine shavings(for bedding). This experience has taking me back to my grandparents farm, where times were much simpler and I’m not going to lie, it made ya boy a little emotional. Although these a dual purpose birds, I’m only going to harvest their eggs and enjoy their personalities. As always I want to thank you guys for following my blog, your support means a lot to me now and moving forward as it grows! Stay tuned for more great content!

Air Fryer

Ok guys, I think I’m the last to finally try a air fryer, I was very skeptical at first because folks were calling it the modern day microwave and it really wasn’t classified as cooking. You really can’t form your opinion by someone else’s opinion, you have to do your own research and that I did. I found one to my liking, it’s heavy duty, straight forward and easy to use, the name of it is Kalorik and I absolutely love it. I’ve cooked fries, wings, pork chops, meatballs in the air fryer and I have zero complaints. I haven’t fried anything on the stove since the purchase and it has made my life so much easier, I give it two thumbs up 👍🏾👍🏾.
