2020 – A New Direction

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to starting the new year and decade off with big dreams and goals!

Speaking of big dreams and goals, Blankets of Blessings will be headed in a new direction for 2020 and beyond. In preparation for this, custom orders for blankets will no longer be accepted. I am also excited to share that AncaLogy and Blankets of Blessings will also be leaving the Etsy platform and migrating any remaining products to this site! Blankets that are made in the future will be donated to efforts that are focused on improving and enriching the lives of the people in their surrounding communities. More information on this is soon to come. If you’ve already placed a custom order before this announcement, your order will be fulfilled by January 10th, 2020. 

While I’m still absolutely working on incorporating Blankets of Blessings as a Nonprofit, I realized that I may have haphazardly started this project. As a result, I am taking a step back and revamping to learn more about various resources that I can utilize to have my project finally come into fruition. This will look like: partnering/volunteering with other Nonprofits that have already been operating, so that I can get a first hand look at how things should be done. It is vital to have a solid foundation when embarking on something like this, and I want to ensure that I am prepared.

On occasion, it is necessary to press pause and/or start over. There’s nothing wrong with starting over (and getting help), especially if it means you’ll be more successful the next time around. The most important thing is to not give up, even more so when you’re passionate about what you’re planning.

Be encouraged, be blessed and don’t stress!

Also, don’t forget, registration for the Confab of Respite opens tomorrow on the site. Looking forward to new connections!

Sex is for the Birds…

Until I get married that is!

But, it’s something people talk about on a consistent basis. There’s not a day that goes by where someone isn’t talking about it. As if that’s all people think about. Soon as I open Twitter, if it’s not the first thing I see, I guarantee it’ll be the next tweet on my timeline. Why are people so obsessed with sex, and having it?

You’re probably sitting there reading this like “Oh, she’s probably never had sex before.”

YOU DANG RIGHT. I’m a virgin, and proud to be one.

Now, I’m not speaking ill about anyone who has had sex or is currently active as we speak, that’s their prerogative, their life, do you boo boo. However, I made a personal decision to not have sex until I am absolutely sure that whatever guy I am in a relationship with is 100% serious about me, a.k.a. we are MARRIED.

No, it’s not some religious thing. I made this decision because 1) there are less headaches, 2) I’m not trying to catch the pregnant yet, and 3) I’m DEFINITELY not trying to catch a STD that some of y’all are passing around out here because you’re not being responsible and GETTING YOURSELF CHECKED…nor admitting that you have something to your sexual partner at the moment…you nasties. Condoms don’t catch everything people!

Also, I always get this question: “What if when you get married, the sex isn’t good?” AS IF THAT’S THE SOLE REASON I’LL MARRY A GUY. Being able to have sex…make pure, genuine love with the love of your life? Honey, that’s a perk. A BLESSING. A blessing I only want to share with only one person. If the love making isn’t all that great at first, he better buckle up because we are going to get better together and LEARN. Like I believe we are supposed to.

Again, sex is for the birds (until I get married). I absolutely refuse to give my body to any guy unless they have gotten down on one knee and then given me their last name. I REFUSE.

Call me crazy, but this is my resolve.

Now, do I think about what it’s like? Of course I do. There’s no shame in that. I am human. I ask my friends tons of questions because I am curious to know. It’s actually quite fun and interesting to hear them talk about their experiences. However, just because I am curious, doesn’t mean I am going to act on it.

If you’re out there, waiting until you get married too (girls and guys alike), you got this. No one can put pressure on you to do anything if you don’t allow them to.

But…if you’re out here wildin’ out 😂, best of luck to you, I pray you don’t catch anything, and BE SAFE. There’s too many things going around out here to not be, you dig? Educate yourself and others and ADVOCATE GETTING TESTED REGULARLY. There’s no shame in being in charge of your sexual health.
