6. How would YOU describe this glass of water???

Is it half FULL?
Is it half EMPTY?
Is this a trick question? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
If you said half Full you're optimistic! You have a very positive way of looking at things
& have high expectations.
If you said half Empty, you're pessimistic! You're always on guard for negative outcomes
& you have very low expectations.

Some people go against the grain and are neither optimistic nor pessimistic. 
They may just see the glass of water as just THAT, a glass of water, neither half full or half empty!
If you're in the latter category, then you're a 'realist'!

A 'Realist' isn't influenced one way or the other, by positive or negative things.
He tends to 'go against the flow' and often has a 'whatever' attitude.
He's sort of like a school of fish all going in the same direction EXCEPT for him, 
he's busy going the other way. He dances to the beat of a different drummer!

The 'Realist' is always prepared for both outcomes to prevent terrible disappointments.
He expects the best while still being prepared for the worst.

ALL 3 tendencies are learned behavior based on what's happened in YOUR life.
Therefore, these tendencies can be 'unlearned' or 'adapted' to fit situations once you 
fully understand what's going on!

5. WHY I Finally Decided To Get The COVID19 VACCINE!

For a long time I was dead set AGAINST getting the Covid19 Vaccine. Here are just a few of my reasons:

  • I could get 'rona' from the vaccine
  • It could change my DNA
  • It's the 'Mark of the Beast'
  • These vaccines are not perfected yet
  • The government is experimenting on folks
Meanwhile, quite a few of my family members were waiting to see what I was going to do
Sooooo, as the title suggests, I FINALLY decided to get the Covid19 Vaccine after much research.
I BELIEVE that getting the Covid19 Vaccine far outweighs the complications from NOT getting it and risking catching Coronavirus itself, In My Opinion.

4. How To Make PERFECT Air Fryer WINGS!

If you've ever fantasized about getting DEEP FRIED results using an Air Fryer, then follow these steps:
  • Prepare chicken (wash, PAT DRY, cut, add yellow mustard & seasonings).
  • Choose Seasoned Breading or make your own (Lefty's Spices, Kentucky Kernel, Louisiana Crispy Fry Mix, etc.).
  • Put seasoned breading of your choice in Breader Bowl (https://amzn.to/3fV5N8O ) or Ziploc Bag.
  • Add chicken pieces to Breader Bowl, do not overload. You want each piece coated evenly.
  • Make sure lid is secure then shake to coat chicken.
  • As you coat the chicken, shake off excess flour before adding to Air Fryer Basket. Do Not Overcrowd. Hot air needs to freely circulate for the results you want.
  • Spritz chicken with olive oil or oil of your choice I use the EVO Oil Sprayer or cheaper (Aluminum Oil Sprayer: https://amzn.to/2NI4rlI) because you don't want floury patches on chicken.
  • Set Air Fryer TEMP at 400 degrees F.  Set Air Fryer TIME for 22 minutes.
  • No Flipping Necessary IF it's only wings.
  • You NEED to flip legs, thighs & breasts.
ENJOY your delicious, crispy, juicy, golden brown wings! Please let me know how YOUR chicken turns

3. WHY I Wear WIGS All The Time!

I'm often asked the question "Why do you wear wigs especially with all the hair you've got?" Here's Why:
  • My hair is thick & healthy BECAUSE I wear wigs
  • Wearing wigs actually helps PROTECT my own hair from
  • Harsh Chemicals such as perms, relaxers, hair dyes, etc
  • Pressing combs, Flat irons, Curling irons, etc.
  • I no longer have to sit for hours getting my edges pulled out with braids
In addition to the points listed above, I LOVE  being able to switch up my look everyday if I want, simply by putting on a wig.

2. How I Got Out of CREDIT CARD DEBT!

I used to be a credit card collector! I not only collected them BUT I used them to the MAX! Throughout the years I had fun buying all kinds of STUFF on credit. I had 16 - 18 credit cards PLUS a car note to pay which wasn’t cute!

With time and age, I eventually came to my senses and began seeking the best way FOR ME to get out of debt.

I used the DAVE RAMSEY Debt Snowball Method:
  • List ALL credit cards from lowest to highest
  • Pay off LOWEST cards first, to get instant gratification when you see them dwindling down
  • Keep paying the next lowest card in line 
  • Continue paying only the MINIMUM PAYMENTS on the other cards regardless of the interest 
  • As you begin to see progress, DON'T SPEND that extra money you'll have. Roll it into the next lowest card
  • This doesn't include regular household bills such as House Note, Water, Gas, Electric, etc.
This Debt Snowball Method Works even though it doesn't seem logical.
I was THOUSANDS of Dollars in debt. It took me 14 months to completely pay off All my credit cards AND my car!  
I feel FREE! I continue to do the HAPPY DANCE each month when I only have to pay regular household bills.
I now use 1 cash back credit card to pay ALL bills and to shop with. I always pay it in full each month.
I hope this helps somebody!
