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.

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!

Hones…
