I wanna be Brazilian

So, I have written about this before, but tonight it is going to a different level.  

Today was a spa day for me.  I had a wonderful time and believe it or not, I even feel asleep while she was working on my eyebrows.  However, there was one place that she had to remove hair that gets my attention every time.  

The last time I wrote about this, I think I was still getting partial Brazilians.  If you haven't figured out what I am talking about, I am talking about grooming my goddess.  (This is why there is a disclaimer before you even get to my blog site).  Well, I have since graduated to getting a full Brazilian.  OMG!!!  Today makes the second time that I have had that done to my body and let me just tell you, it is a totally different experience.  

For real, if you would have told me about doing this a year ago, I would have laughed in your face.  Even though I have lost weight and I am still working on my body, I still have some confidence issues when it comes to me.  So, add that to the fact that when I go have the goddess taken care of, she has to hold my tummy (not as much as she had to last time) to get to where she needs to be.  But here is the best thing, her professionalism.  

She has never made me feel bad about my size.  If anything, we talk during the entire time (until she gets to my eyes).  I have never felt like I didn't belong and quite frankly, I've seen other plus size women in the spa.  That just makes me feel better because obviously, they have had the same positive experience.  We wouldn't keep coming back if we didn't.  

Here's my point, there are people out there that think we are fabulous just the way we are.  Don't you think that it is time for us to start loving ourselves a little bit more?  Come on, ladies, we totally have this.  Enjoy life, be healthy, and rock those curves.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with us, so we need to stop acting like it.

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
