A question that I get often is... Tamica, do you get upset? The answer is yes. I am human. There are times when I feel like reacting in a way that will not help me in anyway. I have learned that all I would be satisfying is my impulse to lose control. The ability to control one’s emotions, behavior, and desires in the face of external demands in order to function in society is referred to as self-control. I have not mastered self- control, but I am working on it. I am very goal oriented; self-control is essential in achieving my goals. Whenever I get upset, I simply remind myself that my goals are more important than having a tantrum.
All my love,
Tamica Cox- Jerome

I came across this article and decided to share it... Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid
To meditate is to be free. I have always enjoyed quite moments alone; I'm not sure why, but I really enjoy people and things and all of the tangible distractions. When it's all said and done however, I would always seek out a quite place to just be still. I tried meditation many years ago because of the benefits that it promises. My first few attempts did not go so well. Meditation was a lot more challenging than what I was accustom to, "sitting still in a quite place." Meditation has a lot to do with training the mind to be quite, clear and free from external distractions. Meditation relaxes me and helps me to relieve stress... The benefits of meditation are worth the challenge. Here is what Osho has to say about sitting silent and witnessing your thoughts.
“I'm simply saying that there is a way to be sane. I'm saying that you can get rid of all this insanity created by the past in you. Just by being a simple witness of your thought processes.
It is simply sitting silently, witnessing the thoughts, passing before you. Just witnessing, not interfering not even judging, because the moment you judge you have lost the pure witness. The moment you say “this is good, this is bad,” you have already jumped onto the thought process.
It takes a little time to create a gap between the witness and the mind. Once the gap is there, you are in for a great surprise, that you are not the mind, that you are the witness, a watcher.
And this process of watching is the very alchemy of real religion. Because as you become more and more deeply rooted in witnessing, thoughts start disappearing. You are, but the mind is utterly empty.
That’s the moment of enlightenment. That is the moment that you become for the first time an unconditioned, sane, really free human being.”

We live in a world where love seems to be fading away. Love is very hard to come by. I mean real love. So many people claim to love.... but do they really know what love is? Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps not record of wrong. Love does not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) I speak from personal experience when I say that many claim to love but do so only when convenient for them. If you have good parents in your life they, are always going to love you no matter what! Its inevitable. However, to believe that someone truly loves you without consistent action for an extended period of time is well... naive. If someone claims to love you, or "got luv for you," take a moment to reflect on your experiences together, and ask yourself, how do/did they make me feel? Were they around when you were at your lowest? When conflict arose between you, how did they handle it? How did they handle you? Do you feel drained around the person that claims to love you? When this person says, "I love you, and you say," I love you too," Do you genuinely mean it? Love seems to be fading away because most people simply take the word LOVE for granted. If they knew what the word really means, most people will have to remove it from their dictionary, while others will start to use it sparingly. On a more positive note, however, those who truly love you will work hard to live up to what love really is. -Tamica Cox-Jerome

My name is Tamica Cox-Jerome. I am a mother, sister, friend and a wife. If it were up to me I would read, read and read some more. I am a student and will always be as I enjoy learning. I am approachable, compassionate, loyal, and at times audacious. If I had to describe myself in one word though, that word would be strong. To quote Confucius: "If I am walking with two men, each of them will serve as my teacher. I will pick out the good points of one and imitate them, and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself."
