“Can’t wait till I grow up”

It was Tuesday night after I had just got done grocery shopping, when I pulled into the local gas station parking lot and proceeded to go through my purse so I could find my card to go into and purchase whatever it was I needed to purchase. That’s when my 8 year old decided to ask me for ice cream and I responded with “right now we only have enough money for the necessities”.

I’m not sure why I expected him to respond understandingly but he responded the way that I’m sure we all have “I can’t wait to be a grown up so I can do what I want”. He wasn’t angry when he said this. He just really felt that when he grows up he can do whatever he wants and that is so far from the truth. Especially given the week I have had.

I stopped what I was doing and immediately just stared at hime and went on to explain that being a child, is the best years of your life. Don’t rush them. Something I had heard my entire life as a child and I just shrugged it off. I told him that he would do that, he would shrug it off and think that I’m crazy because being an adult seems so easy and it’s not. We pay bills and even go to work to make money to pay for those necessities and we don’t always get ice cream when we want because of responsibilities. He said he guesses he still wants to be a kid then.

It’s important that our children remember that they are children and have the exploration of children. Sometimes we get caught up in our own responsibilities and we forget to let them know that they are so young and have as much freedom as they ever will in this life. Sure, there’s rules they have to follow, but at least they don’t have to worry about that electric bill or paying rent. They don’t have the worry of buying themselves clothes or getting enough gas in their car so that their kids can go to school all week. They don’t have to borrow money.

Herbal Mint Shampoo Bar


Shampoo bars are here! These special ingredients produce a rich, thick, creamy, and buttery lather. Can be used for washing and even shaving. The secret is a significant amount of castor oil in the mix which conditions the hair and skin and gives the bubbles a rich, buttery texture. The two types of clay help the lather & absorb excess oil from hair and scalp. You can use it head to toe!

Ingredients: saponified organic oils of palm, coconut, sunflower, castor & olive, rhassoul clay, bentonite clay, organic essential oils of rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis, 1,8 Cineole), frankincense (Boswellia carteri) & spearmint (Mentha spicata).

My Values

I have been against MLM’s from the beginning of time. I really dislike people popping up in my inbox and asking me to buy anything. Most importantly, it was because their products are not something I can see myself getting behind. Then you have the way they treat people, you are just extra money to them. It’s not fun when they hound you to join their team and you’re over here trying to make enough money to pay your bills, you really don’t have extra money to invest in their company because again, you can’t see yourself advertising for something that is beyond your belief system. There’s several of those companies and MixedSixMama’s Poofy World did not join them. I wouldn’t ever advertise or try to get you to buy a product that I wouldn’t use myself or I haven’t used myself. I also wouldn’t ask you to join my team if I didn’t believe that we could make something happen and change the world with the products. Poofy Organics products are just that, they are life changing. We can’t change everyone, we can’t change the entire world, but we can have one hell of a time trying to promote everything we believe in.

The Shampoo Bar

This shampoo bar is absolutely amazing, I have listed the ingredients underneath the photo. The bar of shampoo is made from toxic free chemicals and the company behind it is one of the most trustworthy companies when it comes to selling all natural products. Now, you may be curious as to how does this shampoo bar actually work and how well it stands up against regular shampoo and I will tell you my thoughts! I just used this shampoo bar the other day for the first time and it was so simple to use. I took it right out of the box and just lathered my hair with it, like you would do your body with regular bar soap, unlike that regular bar soap this was shampoo! It rinsed out easy and didn’t leave my hair feeling stiff or gunky, it left it smelling minty fresh and amazingly clean. I was able to use my leave in conditioner and my hair looks and feels amazing. I will attach a photo here shortly. 

Other Shampoos

Other shampoos put the poo in shampoo! No, really! They have so many harmful chemicals, it doesn’t even matter if you go into the store and buy the cheapest one or the most expensive because as long as they carry those carcinogens in them, you’re getting the same dirty product. You have to remember our heads are full of pores and they soak up every ounce of those chemicals. Next time you’re in the shower, read the list of ingredients and then look them up. Every thing is right at our finger tips.

Buy the shampoo here

We also have many different products and brands. They are all toxic free, clean, and natural ingredients used in EVERY product. Also, you can ask me how to join my team and spread the love of these ingredients and products. Just find me on Facebook! I will be waiting.

Control

The world is always spinning and sometimes it feels as though it is spinning upside down. It’s hard to hold on, even though there’s gravity that ties me to this Earth, I do not feel as though I am a part of it. The Earth spins so out of control that I start to feel it’s heaviness and speed in my chest, I start to suffocate, full of anxiety. I spin around and around and around, I cannot let go. I step back and attempt to catch my breath only to taste the familiar scent of exhaustion. Then I awake. I awake surrounded by the ones who judge us, I awake to the ones who tell me I am not good enough today, I am not good enough any day. I slowly cusp my ears to stop their angry words from entering my soul but they find themselves slipping through the cracks of my fingers and then again, I hear the world judging me for things that I have no control.

I step up and move forward, pushing through the judgmental people, I then realize these people are the same ones who claim they wouldn’t hurt me, claim that they love me and want what’s best for me. They love me? They want what’s best for me? Yet, they hurt me with their knives in my back. It is those that are the reason I do not trust anyone. That I do not give someone the chance to hold the knife and that I do not turn my back and always look people straight in the eyes, never lose eye contact.

The fear of every one else looking upon me, judging me comes to surpass in time. I learn to be my own person, I learn to be a better person, and I learn to adapt to the world around me and instead of attempting to be a part of a world that I do not understand, I move forward and I create my own world, one that I am so familiar with, one that I am comfortable in.

SMH Moment Number One

Embed from Getty Images

Imagine this, you did all of your Algebra homework and you were so proud of yourself. Then bam, your instructor posts at the last minute that you did great work except for the fact that you did the wrong problem.

So, you are like “okay, I got this” and you redo the equation. But then you later realize that you have to do it all over again because you use the quadratic formula instead of factoring like the homework says to do!

That’s me right now. That’s the situation I am in, currently and I am dreading to have to do another math problem for the third time. I am currently shaking my head a thousand times at myself. Wish me luck!

Purge…AND… I’m out✌🏻

Wait… purge?

Have you ever just needed someone’s attention and it’s like you’re screaming so loud but yet no one can hear or see you? Almost as though you’ve become a ghost to people that matter to you. Now don’t get me wrong I am very much aware that people have their own lives and they must live them. However, I am a firm believer that we all need the comfort of other people and to have others in our lives. It’s not healthy to be lonely.

What am I getting at?

Three years ago I left the face of the book, friends, family and everything. The tension and drama got so bad that I was unable to handle the stress of FB. Well, last year I realized how important it is to stay in the zone with my kids school and I can do it easily but FB. Which made me reactivate it and thus starting an entire new chapter in my social media frenzy. I am calling it quits again. I don’t want to be that close to people. I don’t want to check my FB 24/7 to see what others are doing, I don’t want to see someone who dislikes me or me dislike them liking things and then creep on their stuff, I don’t want to feel entrapped in the world of FB and all the problems that come with it. Thus… I am not deactivating it but I will not be participating in my FB profile.

What does this even mean?

It means though I will have an active profile and have friends on there I will not be updating you on my life. Now, I may continue to add photos of the kids every now and then. I will be on my group and still running it. I will have messenger installed on my phone in case teachers need to reach me. I will be available for contact. I will also be running my FB Page with the same name.

All Other Social Media….

I have deleted all my social media apps from FB, Snapchat, all the way to Instagram. If you really want to find me I guess you would know how.

I will be updating you on my recent Keto results and blog changes so please follow me to stay up to date!

Keto Challenge

Hello everyone! It’s been such a long time since I’ve made an update on here. I really need to start doing better at creating posts, my life is just so busy and there would be such good information that I could post daily so that you could follow me throughout my life. I’m just super busy. We actually just moved, we’re not even finished with the entire move, I’ll update you later on that and how it went.

I want to discuss the Keto diet today. As you know awhile back, maybe a little less than a year ago I attempted to do Whole 30 and I completely and totally utterly failed the challenge. Day 10 hit and I was so sick because of the sugar addiction and breastfeeding, I just couldn’t do it. After that I did attempt to do Paleo which I didn’t necessarily fail, I still pretty much stick to the diet except it was difficult over summer when I’d go visit family and they would cook. I know what’s healthy eating and what’s not now, which is amazing.

The thing about Keto that I find highly challenging is the fact that I don’t eat dairy and that’s totally okay on the Keto challenge. Then it limits your fruit intake because it is a Low Carb, High Fat diet. I’m worried about that, I love my fruits and veggies. I totally failed being vegetarian though, that is a discussion for another day as well.

This challenge is obviously going to be difficult for me and I’ve been waiting an entire year to start it because of how restrictive it is. The reason I had to wait is that my baby just turned a year old last month and I still currently breastfeed him, just not as much.

I want to be able to have my followers follow with me through this journey and see if I can get on the right path to a healthy lifestyle. I plan on including exercise and I am also taking Slique from Young Living, yes I know you should not digest oils, please if you read this, don’t take my word for digesting oils, I am doing this out of my own decision making. I suggest you read up on the safety of oil ingesting before you continue down that path.

Now, you know I don’t post a blog every day, I am going to try to be better at it. I will try to update at least once a week on the Keto diet, but daily on my Facebook page, please follow me here.

Open Your Eyes

Negativity surrounds humanity as if it’s the air we breathe. It dampens our hearts and brings fear into our souls. Negativity can make us numb and it can paralyze us. When we realize that we are the ones who bring negative energy into our own little positive world we will only then defeat and rise above.

For those of you who personally know me, you know that I don’t believe the same ways as everyone else. My mind is like an open book willing to take new information in, but one thing will always be for sure, I believe what I believe and some things you won’t be able to change my mind on.

I believe that we are in control of our own destiny, that every single thing on this Earth has a place. I believe in or nature and that nature heals all. I believe in so many things that a blog post is not enough to get you to open your eyes to all the beautiful and wonderful things in this world.

In order to see things from a different perspective, we must stop judging others for their choices. We must stop judging others for the way they see things and maybe open up to their points of views. After all, there’s an entire universe that is unknowing out there.

To say one type of perspective is wrong would be to say that you 100% know for sure what there is after this life. None of us know what is after this life, we only know what we believe in and have faith in. We only know what we were raised to know or what we taught ourselves.

To conclude this post, let’s get involved in the world around us. Study new and wonderful things. You don’t have to believe in it, just see the possibilities with how things work. Kind of like opening up a computer and figuring out what makes it run.
