Moments Between Music: Afterthought


As hard as I’m trying at this moment not to have a tone of disappointment and anger, I’m struggling more now to put words together because of my mood. I, of all people, know full well that my thoughts effect my feelings which then put out energy that will come back to me the same way I put it out. So I’m trying to blog this post real quick so I can change my thoughts, feelings and mood to a more positive and loving energy. But I wanted to share these quick raw emotions because there are people, particularly women, who can probably relate.

If there’s one thing a woman hates, it’s being treated like an afterthought. Yes, an afterthought. I understand that there are worse things in life a woman could hate, but lately I’ve been feeling like an afterthought so I felt like blogging about that. So sue me.

Anyone can compliment me, but if it’s not from the one who has my thoughts and heart, I feel slighted.


Anyone can text me, but if it’s not from the one I really am expecting it from, I get a little irritable, especially if my texts are ignored.

Anyone can call me, but if the voice on the other end is not the one I want to hear, what’s the point? (I hate leaving voicemails. If I leave one and I don’t get a call back, you better believe I’m beyond annoyed),

Anyone can praise me for my writing,
but if it’s not from the one I am writing about or thinking about, then I have my days where I think: I quit!

Anyone can say anything, do anything to make me feel special, but when all I want is acknowledgement from my love and it’s nowhere in sight, I get a bit pissy.

In each of these situations I’ve felt like an afterthought because I’ve felt (and still feel) like I make every effort to acknowledge, honor and treat others as I would want to be acknowledged, honored and treated. When it’s not reciprocated… HELL YEAH I’ll feel like I’m an AFTERTHOUGHT and then some.

That being said, this post is dedicated to those of you who have been feeling like an afterthought. The fact that I’m blogging about this topic is evidence in it of itself that YOU ARE NOT AN AFTERTHOUGHT.

(okay, less pissivity and more POSITIVITY my loves)

How can you make your boo feel more special? Are you making every effort to avoid making your boo feel like an afterthought? If you’re feeling like an afterthought, how have you communicated that to your boo?

Until next post,

    Aww sis, I do hope for more in the whole “process,” always remember to never tolerate what you don’t deserve 😉 But as for your question about how do we make our loves feel “special?” well I may have a few suggestions (esp. since I am in a LDR) *ahem*

    If you know it’s been awhile since you’ve shown some affection…

    – Make a short video that you can text em saying how much you love ’em and think of ’em all the time. (Ladies, adding a kiss makes it cute too!)
    – Write them a short funny poem about your relationship (reminisce about good memories and insiders you have as a couple)
    – Send them a letter via airmail without telling them (It may take a little longer than a text or message on FB but a great keepsake!)
    – Make a cute slideshow/collage with pictures, quotes and inside jokes! (Coming from a man to his lady will have her in awe!)

    I honestly feel like if you make sure you are communicating then everything will fall into place than again if you find that you’re the only one reaching out and making the effort, reconsider and reevaluate your relationship. Hope that shed some light 😉

      Thank you! 🙂 Many people think a text, call or even an email is enough, but with technology these days we have numerous ways of communicating with one another. I hope my readers see your comment and take that into consideration.

      Thanks again!

Several of these young men are now realizing that #trackandfield should’ve been a major part of their lives earlier on in their #athletic careers at HF. Tomorrow they lay it all on the track at the @ihsa_il Boys State Final Meet. Last week, our HF Girls Team were Runners Up. This week I’m praying our boys pull out a #team win. 💪🏾 #GoVikings #hfboystrackandfield #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife #coach #athlete
Good morning @ihsa_il State Track and Field Qualifiers! #tracklife #tracknation #trackandfield #ihsa #illinois #state #shotput #discus #relays #runners #thrownation #fieldnation #jumpnation #blessed #eiu #panthers
Now that the regular #trackseason is done, plans for the summer begin! It all starts with knowing more about @clark_the_shark10 💪🏾#musclemass 💀#skeletalmass and 👌🏾#bodyfatpercentage. Weightlifting 🏋🏼‍♀️ in the #offseason is going to get REAL for Cass! #shotput #discus #strong #athlete #thrower #thrownation #fieldnation #tracknation #tracklife #mtpulaski
In March 2017, @pttheshaq introduced @clark_the_shark10 to #shotput and #discus. Brett Young, father of #KDYoung of @gamecockthrows invited her out to a session we had scheduled May 2017 to prepare her for 2017 @usatf Jr. Nationals out in Sacramento. The rest is history.... Thank you to the Mount Pulaski Board Members 🏛for recognizing Cassidy Clark on her recent athletic achievements 🥇🥈at the 2018 #IESA #TrackAndField #StateChampionship Meet. 🔥💣 I absolutely am blessed and honored to be her #coach. These next few years are going to be a blast! Thank you to Cassidy’s support base, both family and friends! 👨‍👩‍👧👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 I truly appreciate all of your words of encouragement and praise! 👏🏾Each of you keep me inspired and motivated on days when I have to work harder to keep her focused and drive. 💪🏾Thank you to Gale and Michele Clark for trusting me with your beloved daughter! 🙏🏾She’s a hoot! 😘Thank you also to Coach Erik Johnson 🙌🏾 of @aretethrowsnation and @coachangeldls🔥💪🏾! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #blessed #athlete #tracklife #throwernation #fieldnation

💙🔥 Im used to seeing these two in basketball shorts and shoes. My favorite prom pic of my two throwers. 😘 #throwers #blue #prom #prom2018 #instastyle #instafashion #fashion #style #trackandfield #discus #basketball
It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 6 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos. Next year we’ll be back with a vengeance. 🔥💪🏾#redsmoke #govikings #trackandfield #state #illinois #Class3A #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife

This brought a #smile to my #heart. ☺️ I truly miss her! @gamecockthrows #GoGamecocks #KDYoung #8TimeStateChamp #coach #athlete #shotput #discus #champion
💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
