To my fans!

Well, I know I have been quiet for a few weeks.  For those of you that know me, you know that sometimes, I have to take some time to get recharged and get ready for my next step.  Yes, I'm being quiet, but my mind is always working.  I'm thinking about what you want to read.  I'm thinking about what I want to write.  I'm thinking about how vulnerable I want to be with you.  I'm thinking about all these things that can make my blog better.  For instance, a few weeks ago, I changed the format of my blog and I haven't seen any complaints.  I change things to make them easier for you because I value you all and you all have been such an amazing support group for me.  Why do I call you a support group?  Well, you share in my joys, you laugh at my silliness, and most of all, you are there for me what I need that extra boost.  Support group, family, whatever you want to call it, that is what you are to me.  What I am saying is this, don't worry when I get quiet - just know that I am going to come back better than ever!  I have plenty to say concerning life, fashion, my weight loss journey, and whatever else you want me to talk about.  It is so simple - leave me a comment on here, send me a tweet on twitter (click on the link to your right to follow me and tweet me), or even find me on Instagram at TheShaylaEm.  Now that you know how to find me, find me.  I look forward to hearing from you and cannot wait to see what you would like me to write about.  Love you, guys!  You make making this personal journey public so worth it!

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.



1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire month...as usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
