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.

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…
