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.

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

The Outsiders

It has been too much going on in the blogging world recently.  I mean, I know that any press is good press, but this might have been too much.  Then add it on top of that, you get people who don't blog chiming in talking about you're just doing it to get free stuff or get a real job or find something to do with your spare time.  Let me answer all three of those - I've been writing in The Plus Diaries for almost five years and have proudly made 25 dollars (by accident), I do work a full-time job with great benefits, and writing is just one of the things I do in my spare time.  For you nosey people, I also do crafts, travel, and currently studying for a couple of tests in my free time.  



Blogging is supposed to be fun!  That's why I got into it in the first place.  But trust me, I salute all the wonderful bloggers out there making money off their blogs.  That's awesome to me!  You are doing what you love and making money off it?  If the quote is true and they really l…

The Big Bang

It's been a while.  It truly has been a while.  I am typically great about telling you when I am taking a blogging break, but sometimes, life just comes at your fast.  At the end of January, life came at me hella fast.  Had it not been for the one blog post I had already written and set up to post, you would not have heard from me when you did.  But, I'm getting back to my feet and feeling more and more like my normal self.  

I know what you are thinking - what happened?!  Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out.  There are some things in my life that I would rather keep personal and this is one of those times.  I've told the people who need to know and it will go no further than that.  But, let's get one to some fun stuff.  

I still have been active on my Instagram and Twitter pages.  I promised to keep you all updated on my weight loss madness that is happening and I've been trying to do so.  I don't want to turn into one of those people w…
