Nothing to hide - part II

Remember the rude photographer from last night, well he struck again.  As much as I would love to post his response and my response to his response, it was really long and I really don't want to get into that madness anymore.  However, at the end of me sending the email, I blocked him from all social networking accounts and even my email.  The funny part is that he blocked me from sending him a response on the site he found me on so that's why I had to find his email.  He made it easy, it was on his business page.  LOL.  Dummy.  

So, I spoke my peace.  I have never in my life been attacked on social media.  I guess that I should use this as practice for the next time it happens because I am sure this will not be the last time.  But, I actually feel sorry for him and his business.  Does he think that making people feel bad about himself is good for business?  If I was mean spirited, I could make his life a living hell.  However, I chose to pray for him instead.  In fact, I even told him that I was praying for him. 

I don't understand how people sleep at night after being so mean and cruel to people.  I did nothing to him.  I had never spoken to this man in my life.  The funny part is that this is the first person to annoy me after me learning to be comfortable with myself.  At least now I have the skills that are needed in order for me to face some of the horrible people in the world.  

I ended my email by telling him that I was going to pray for him.  I am going to do just that before I close my eyes tonight.  Pray for your enemies, right?  Yep, I have learned that lesson in more ways than one.  Truthfully, for the past 8 days, Satan has been on me big time, but I a standing on the word and love of God.  That photographer isn't going to break me and no one else is going to get that chance either.  

Watch out world, Shayla Em is here!!!

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…
