1 year and counting

Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday #ThePlusDiaries. Happy birthday to you!  

Yes, we are celebrating today because our baby (yes, this is your baby too) turns 1 today.  One year ago today, I made my first post on this blog site and it has been a journey every since.  As I look back on my first post (I posted the link to twitter earlier), I couldn't help but how much a year has changed.  I have a great relationship with Manik Mag (www.manikmag.com) and I love writing for them.  My other endeavor(s) seems to be taking off and I am absolutely in love with doing photo shoots.  

What has happened in this year?  I don't have the time to tell you everything.  However, I will tell you this - life has been life.  It's been up.  It's been down.  It's been teaching me lessons.  Most important, I have grown and my love for writing has never been stronger.  

My love for writing.  I cannot even begin to explain how much I love writing.  Not only do I maintain the blogs (yes, plural), but my journals have been keeping me busy too.  Yep, I said journals.  I have the journal that I keep with me at all times because I never know what is going to inspire me or when something may cross my mind that makes me want to write.  I have 2 other journals that I am maintaining for the future loves of my life (my husband and my children).  If you want an explanation, feel free to comment and we will figure out a way for us to discuss that.  Back to my love for writing.  Writing is what gives me my freedom.  I have always been a person of few words.  My family would beg to differ.  It's just that I'm used to being around them and I freely speak.  When it comes to strangers though or telling someone how I really feel about them, I can never seen to find the right words.  However, I can write it out and it comes out perfectly normal.  Well, at least it's my sense of normal.  

So what is going to happen in year 2?  I have no clue what is going to happen in the next 365, but I know that I am looking forward to it.  No matter what happens, as long as it doesn't kill me, I'll keep it moving and write about it. 

I've truly enjoyed this year with you and I am looking forward to sharing many more birthdays with you.  It's because of you that I do what I do.  You keep me motivated by reading and sharing and Google+ and every other thing that you do.  I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

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…
