The key

Well, I don't know how long this one is going to be.  You never know with me - just depends on how I am feeling.  This post is all coming from a comment that was left on a photo I posted to my personal Facebook page.  The comment was nice and made me feel good, but I couldn't help but wonder what she was thinking about herself when she made the comment.  

In more or less words, she said, "I wish I had your confidence."  There has never been a day that I have been afraid of taking photos.  On the other hand, I will admit that it was a photo that made me change my eating habits.  Trust me, it was worth a thousand words and I started making changes the following weekend.  

I love photos and I have always been confident in them, but never did I think I would see the day I would be confident enough to march into an agency and get signed.  I'm loving what I am doing and I am loving the photo shoots and I love sharing my photos with you.  However, if I can make one person feel better about themselves or help give them the confidence to go for it, that is worth more to me than any photo in my portfolio.  

I told her that she had the confidence.  She's a beautiful mom of 3, a wonderful wife, and I love being around her when I get the chance.  Confidence means more than beauty.  She's confident enough to go hiking, rock climbing, extreme biking, and other things.  I don't have the confidence to do any of those things.  I think that is awesome and I love her for it.  

It's all about how you see yourself.  If you are confident in cute clothes, get you some cute clothes.  If you are confident in a certain style of shoes, get a closet full.  If you are confident in a certain color, wear it out!  In all that you do, be confident.  

Just in case you were wondering, here is the photo that received the comment.  Shoutout to my wonderful photographer from FFS Model and Talent Agency. If you are in North or South Carolina and wanting to give this thing a try, check them out.  You never know until you try.  I gave it a try and look at me - I'm not where I want to be, but I will get there eventually.

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…
