I am addicted to social media. There I said it. They say the first step in recovery is first admitting that you have a problem right?
I do social media a lot. Yes, I have too because of my business but what about when I’m not conducting business…. why does it consume me? I don’t really know the answer to that but I do know that I take breaks from social media every now and again. I call it REHAB. Lol.
I’m on a break right now. On the
first day I felt antsy. But after a couple of days go by I then realize why I love my life so much. I get to be free from timelines, likes, shares, live videos, and all the constant emotions being thrown at you. Eyes watching you, people judging you or just those annoying ads lol.
I had a til morning talk with my man and it wasn’t about social media. I listened to 300 songs that I love. I ate, I dreamed, I walked, I listened to myself but most importantly I got shit done…
I’ll be back, but until then I’m here.
I haven’t posted in a while but I’m still here. Living and loving. Growing and Glowing. Healing and feeling. I am super excited that I am still here. I’m in love and have been for years, I love what I do, and I love who I have grown to be.
We have to shift our mindsets.
You can’t just look at me and see the many things that I’ve been through. I’ve worked tirelessly and with much success to overcome the things that would and has caused many people to suffer with depression, anxiety, drug abuse, suicidal thoughts, and many times suicide. I commited myself to finding comfort and healing even in the mist of my many storms. I’ve shared my lifes story before but here are (some) of my life experiences that weren’t so pleasant; I had a parent with an addiction, I’ve been a victim of molestation, attempted rape by a friend, childhood home destroyed by fire at the age of 16, loss of my pregnancy, identity theft, emotional abuse in a relationship, loss of a sibling to suicide, the passing of one of my best friends and I was even electrocuted by a live wire at the tender age of three years old (permanently scarred on both hands). These things have truly molded me into the person I fought and chose to be today. But there is one thing that has nudged at my being since as long as I can remember. One thing that I cannot get over out of all of the many HORRIFIC experiences I’ve encountered.
It is the fact that I have never had or seen a baby picture of myself. This is something that eats at me and leaves me with a yearning to create memories with a child of my own. I don’t know why this is the situation that causes such unrest. Maybe its the not knowing what I looked like in the very beginning that creates an unsettling feeling. Even some adopted children have baby pictures. I know that there are maybe millions of others who don’t have their baby pictures but I often wonder, What went wrong? Where is the hospital photo? I had both parents, a healthy birth but no pictures. Maybe one day I will not feel so incomplete without this. Maybe I will find one, or maybe GOD needed me to be exactly who I am by seeing the BIGGER PICTURE.
I want a LOVE where there are no Ultimatums only two people who freely make the decision to make each other a priority in life and in love.
I want a LOVE where we talk about our plans for the future (NO PRESSURE) because we already talk about our YESTERDAY and TODAY.
I want a LOVE that is filled with gratitude, satisfaction, health, fun, well-being and smooth sailing.
I want a LOVE that at the times when we are confronted with unforeseen surprises or unexpected storms, that our LOVE allows us to look Forward because uncharted waters can also lead to treasures.

Trap Yoga Montgomery is OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT. Yes I know that I live in ATLANTA but I told myself that I will always bring the latest trends back to Alabama.
But what’s Trap Yoga? Trap yoga is yoga done to Trap music to keep it simple. But the instructor can switch it up as he or she pleases.
