The "thing"

Well, in my last post, I told you about my injury.  In case you missed it, here it is in the short version - I was in a car wreck, I've been injured, I'm still under a doctor's care, and I have to have an MRI now.  So, in other words, the saga continues, but I press on.  

After today's trip to the doctor, I wasn't feeling too happy.  It was horrible, in my opinion, and I just wanted to do something that makes any grown woman happy.  Physical therapy may be tomorrow, but retail therapy took place today!  Who was the lucky store today?  Old Navy!

Yes, I took my wonderful self right to Old Navy.  I went because I needed a pick me up and because I was looking for a particular item.  When I went over there to where I was looking, I found they didn't have what I wanted in my size.  Well, what did I do?  I did like any decent female and went over to find me a gorgeous pair of jeans.  Well, I'm not sure if you can tell from my photos on Instagram and Twitter (same name on all social networking sites - @TheShaylaEm), but I am not extremely tall.  I have to buy "short" when it comes to lengths and I am cool with it.  Apparently, I'm not the only person that has to buy that because I had to really dig today.  However, I found what I was looking for.  

Got the jeans, so now I had to complete the entire outfit.  I found me a beautiful burgundy top (well, around here, it's call garnet - #GoGamecocks).  In fact, the lady that checked me out asked me if that was my team - that is a totally different blog because I am not from South Carolina.  In the dressing room (try on EVERYTHING, ladies), I felt like a new person.  I felt so gorgeous and I was just in the dressing room.  I can imagine what I am going to feel like when I wear my outfit with my heels and a cute jacket.  

I don't know what you have going on.  It may be an injury.  It may be someone getting on your nerves.  It may be an array of things.  I say this to you, even if retail therapy is you going to buy a pair of earrings, go get yourself.  It was amazing how a new outfit changed how I felt about my day.  Clothes, jewelry, whatever your "thing" is, it can really make you feel better.  I know my new outfit made my day.

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…
