Follow the signs

Well, I honestly don't even know how to begin this one.  Actually, the fact that this happened to me is pretty awesome.  What I have learned from this is that it is time for me to stop being scared and do something I really want to do.  Even if I don't make it, I can at least say that I tried.  Let me get to my story and then you will understand why I chose that particular title.  

About 2 years ago, I was approached about doing something.  I had thought about it as a teen, but the entire family didn't agree.  I let it go.  Then when I was asked about it again, I said I would give it a try.  I started trying to get things together and just trying to prepare myself for what was to come.  However, there was always something holding me back and it was my lack of confidence.  People find that hard to believe because I appear to be so outgoing and so full of life, but sometimes, there is a nervous part of me that is hard to shake.  

I don't know your faith and I am not trying to push mine on you, but earlier this week, I asked God to give me a glimpse into my life.  I thought that it was just going to come in a dream that night (and it did), but I also believe he gave me a sign today while I was awake and at work.  

I had been in contact with a place on twitter and had checked out their website.  I really liked what I saw and was looking forward to going and giving it a try.  Even if I didn't make it, I can at least say that I tried.  Truthfully, I could have been at this place a few weeks ago and already know what is going to happen.  However, my nerves kept getting the best of me and I would never go and see the people I needed to see.  That brings us to today.  

While I was working my day job, I was parked outside of a building.  I wasn't really paying attention.  I was only making sure that I wasn't blocking any parking spaces or driveways.  I had easily been sitting out there for a good 45 minutes and for some reason, I decided to look at the sign and see what businesses were in that particular building.  Imagine the look on my face when I discovered that I was basically parked in front of the building that housed the business I have been in contact with?  I don't know what you think about it, but I cannot help but think it has a bigger meaning to me.  

Needless to say, I need to get on the ball.  I had made a promise to myself that I would go there before my birthday.  Well, that only leaves me 5 more weeks so I need to get moving.  Don't worry, I'll keep you updated and in 5 weeks if I haven't mentioned it, please call me out.  

You can hit the link on the right of your screen, but to make it easy for you, you can find me on Twitter and Instagram @TheShaylaEm.  Seriously, call me out and make me tell you what happened.  See, now I have to do it because I have told you to call me out.  LOL.  Also, just let me give you a heads up, I am going to need your help in a few days.  February 10 - 14, I'll be in a photo contest so I'll need your votes!  

Be confident, beautiful people.  Whatever you have on your mind that you need to accomplish, get to it.  Time waits for no one.

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…
