2019 was a year of change …. I decided to simply “go” for a lot of things that I may not have done before. It’s this fear that we hold in our minds that keeps us from doing the things we love … fear of the unknown, fear of rejection. Instead of sticking to the … Continue reading PROGRESS.
It's officially December; the year has truly flown by! Now that it's the holiday season, I'm trying to be more optimistic. Actually, maybe optimistic isn't really the word, maybe present. The last couple of years have been difficult, I wish I could explain it, but nothing seems personable anymore. Everything is one big competition. I know, I … Continue reading Presence over presents
Sometimes our bodies are trying to tell us something, and yet it seems that we are too “busy” to answer. Three weeks ago, I started developing this awful pain in the lower left side of my abdomen. To be honest, I assumed that it was the start of my cycle and left it to “mother … Continue reading Body Party … well, not really
I woke up this morning wondering how the hell it’s already November 21st when my hot girl summer just ended last week … well, not really. Time seems to fly by and before you know it, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. I miss the innocence of the holidays: being a kid and … Continue reading The Holiday Rut
For years, I spent so much time with a negative attitude about who I was because I had been so brainwashed about how society viewed me, as a plus size woman. Let me be clear by saying that beauty has no true shape or size; it's a mantra that I have come to live by, … Continue reading Taking time for YOU.
World Mental Health day recently passed, and I can’t seem to stop reflecting on it. Nobody is perfect, everybody goes through something. And yet sometimes, it seems as if the world is crumbling around our shoulders and nothing we do helps. The stigma surrounding mental health is so exhausting; when people want to reach out … Continue reading Ask Yourself …
September is a hard month for me; it’s a month of celebration with birthdays all around, but it’s a constant reminder of the death of my brother. So don’t get me wrong, I love to go out from time to time and be around good people, positive vibes are everything to me. The music is … Continue reading Flashing Lights
Damn man, I hate to see summer come and go; school is officially starting, the activities are winding down, and pumpkin flavored everything has taken over. Don’t get me wrong, the heat can be disrespectful A.F, but I love having wild nights with my girls, and spending an evening or two in somebody’s pool. And … Continue reading It was a Hot Girl Summer …
Social media is cool … but let’s be real, it’s reckless as fuck. All it takes is one post, just one for somebody to take it and run with it. I could sit here and say, “I don’t like bananas,” but to somebody else they read, “I don’t like bananas, oranges, apples, and then some.” … Continue reading Say Hello to the Bad Guy (A disclaimer on social media)
So look right, I haven’t always had a “bad” attitude, but I guess one too many issues in life lead me down this path of the “angry black woman” people so desperately want us to be. Don’t get me wrong, I am a really kind person, but when you constantly mistake my kindness for a … Continue reading The Adjustment
