The Comeback

I know, I know, I know - I haven't been here in quite a while.  In fact, I didn't blog the entire month of November.  I should be ashamed of myself and I am.  However, sometimes, things happen that knock you down so that you can come back stronger and give you a good lesson at swinging.  If you can take a good guess, this first part is about life in general - not about the plus size life, but life.  

Life hit me hard a few months ago.  I don't know your faith, but I know that without mine right now, I would be totally lost.  I think we go through things for Him to show us who He really is.  I've spent more time reading the Bible, I've spent more time praying, and I have made every effort to be in church not only for Sunday service, but for Bible Study.  Yeah, He got my attention and He got it very well.  I believe that things happen for a reason and that there is a lesson in it all.  Well, I can tell you that me being more focused on Him is not the lesson because I already knew where to turn.  So when this lesson comes, I will be more than happy to share my testimony with you because you will not believe the test I am going through right now if I told you. 

Now, let's get to the more fun stuff.  I have learned during this process that I needed to get back to me and start really loving myself.  What better way to that than to have a photo shoot?  Yep, I love photos that much and I have something up my sleeve, but I can't tell you about that yet.  Just know that I have goals to reach and I have gotten to the point where I am no longer in the business of letting people slow me down.  What this have to do with me loving myself and getting back to me? EVERYTHING!!!  What better way to embrace yourself than to tell your life through photos?  Needless to say, no matter how big or how plus people think I am, I am going to love myself and take a few dozen photos while doing it.  Yep, this is how this is going down. 


So, the photos that you are seeing are a sneak preview, compliments of Casey Brannon Photography in Myrtle Beach, SC.  She is 100% awesome and if you are in the area, you really need to check her out.
  
Yeah, this is the comeback - my life story, the other things I am working on, and the photos.  The madness tried to stop me.  Life, good swing, but I swing harder.  As long as I have the faith, I will always win.

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…
