Guess what?

I love pocketbooks.  I love shoes.  Some would even call it an addiction.  When it comes to my pocketbooks, I love a particular brand name.  I cannot help it.  I just love their stuff.  Well, today, I decided to treat myself.  I will tell you the store later on in this post, but for right now, let me tell you the story.  

I was so excited today because I had been looking online for a particular pocketbook and I was going to the store to get it.  When I walked in to this store, I didn't see the pocketbook I was looking for - it's bright pink so I would have noticed it immediately.  The sale associate was very helpful and when I described the bag to him, he let me know that it was no longer in the store, but that I should look around to see if something else caught my eye.  Well of course I was going to do that (LOL).  Well, a few other things did catch my eye, but I was trying to stay on budget.  Well, he let me look around for a while and then he came back to check on me.  He asked me if I had seen anything and I told him, "yes, but I really had my heart set on that pink bag".  After making a few more looks, I saw one that caught my eye and the price was right up my alley.  By the time he made it back to me, I was holding a pocketbook and a wallet.  He smiled and took them to the counter for me while I kept looking. Well, I ended up finding another pocketbook and wallet.  It was a perfect shopping trip for me, for more than one reason.  

The store I was in today way Guess.  Even though I have always shopped in that store for my pocketbooks and some shoes, sometimes because I know they don't sell clothing in my size, I felt like people (not the associates) would look at me funny and wonder why I was in the store.  However, today was different.  I don't know if it was because I was the only person shopping in the store or because both associates, especially the guy, made me feel so welcomed or because I am starting to get some confidence in how I look. 

I know that I cannot wear anything in Guess (and so did the associates), but the fact that I was not looked down upon today was a really great moment for me and that made for a perfect experience.  When I walked out the store with my 4 items, I felt so wonderful.  Now, I saw some smaller people looking at me funny when I walked out the store with my large bag, but I didn't care.  I was happy and I had found what I was looking for, almost.  

So to Guess, especially those associates, THANK YOU for making me feel welcomed to shop in the store and for not making me feel like I didn't belong.  It's not like that at all stores and you are to be commended.


Just in case you were wondering, these are the new goodies in my collection.  You can find them at your Guess store or online.

Many Years of Thursdays

Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault

I had a blog post ready to type.  I was going to tell you about my birthday month and all the fun I had during March celebrating with family and friends.  And then, Thursday, March 28 happened and Grey's Anatomy hit me with Episode 19 of Season 15 titled Silent All These Years.  As hard as it was for me to admit my story, when I posted tweets about being triggered and the experience, I finally typed WE instead of simply saying you.  

I along with many people were triggered by that episode that night.  Quite frankly, it's hard for me to write this post, but I'm going to push through.  

My typical Thursday looks like this - work, workout, do a devotion/bible study, eat, shower.  At 8pm EST, I am only communicating via Twitter because I'm going all the way in with the live tweets and enjoying my time with the Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 viewers.  It's part of my boundary that I am strongly holding on to this year.  However, that part…

POWER

Disclaimer: I will be mentioning my Christianity.  It's not the full topic of conversation, but it will be in here in a few spots.  Proceed with caution.  

"He has kids because God knew when you met him, you wouldn't act right."
This isn't the first time this has been said to me.  Well, not in these words.  It's always something and then you wouldn't act right.  Now the first time this was said to me, I got a bit spicy.  As it has been a continued phrase in my life, I honestly haven't paid it that much attention.  Why?  I know my relationship with myself and I know my relationship with Christ.  So, I did tell you that religion was not going to be a big thing in here, so I won't drop scripture on you.  However, we are going to have a little chat about energy. 

I've been extremely in tune with myself lately.  I've accepted a few things about myself...

I'm an empath I'm healing I'm on a path of discovery
Did you noticed how I took…

Painful

Ayesha Curry has been the talk of all the innanets for about two weeks now.  I'm not going to dwell on this because I have other things to discuss.  However, I will say that I wished she would have kept that in a private family conversation.  Just because you are in the light doesn't mean it all has to be in the light.  Also, I get it.  We all want to feel wanted.  Even the people clowning on her want to be wanted.  But go on ahead and continue to go off about her living a lavish life when you cannot figure out how to live your best one.  Moving on...

I didn't do my first Wednesday post this month.  Yall are just going to be hearing from me once in May.  But, I try to be as transparent as I am comfy with.  So, without telling too much, let's just say the end of April and the first 12 days of May have been a horrible hell that I didn't even know could exist.  However, I'm moving along and still standing. Let's be real - anxiety is a real piece of work!
