Now chanting - No More Solid!

It is officially summer time, plus beauties!  That means it's time to show off some skin.  Legs, arms, feet, etc, but keep it classy.  Also, summer is the great time to try some new styles.  

Now, I didn't have an elaborate shopping trip today, but it was enough for me to tell you about it here.  In other words, this is probably not going to be a long shopping post.  So, I went to Lane Bryant (@lanebryant) today with the goal of only getting underwear.  I had said I would get a top, IFF (math geeks know this as if and only if - I have a math minor, LOL) I found something I really liked and knew that I would get a lot of wear out of it.  With panties on my mind, something else caught my eye.  There was an absolutely gorgeous top that had my name (well, my gov't name) on it, but that price did not.  I went in today on a budget and that was truly out of range.  Disappointed, I went to go find me some panties (smaller size, if I may add) and then proceeded to check out.  

The lady that was checking me out asked, "That's all for today?"  With a somber sound, I said, "Yes".  She asked, "You didn't see a top you wanted?"  Well, of course I had to tell her about the top I saw, but the fact I didn't want to pay that much for it.  That's when she told me about the sale and coupon I could use.  I was on such a one track mind today that I didn't even pay attention to that as I was walking in the door.  So, luckily, they had the top in my size (yes, smaller) and I was to thrilled to give it to the associate so I could check out.  I cannot wait to wear that top tomorrow.  

So, same associate had on a skirt I saw in the store and I asked her about it because it came with a matching top.  Instead of buying the matching top, she used something different and it was too cute on her today!  We talked about it and I realized I had this one thing in common with her - neither of us are afraid to experiment with clothes.  I really wish I would have gotten a photo of her because it was absolutely awesome.  

Here's the thing - the days of plus beauties having to wear all black and/or solid colors only are out the window.  We are so much more than that and we deserve to wear to much more than that.  Thankfully, the designers are taking note, but I really need for more of them to get on the bandwagon.

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…
