Tip of the Iceberg

I don't even get to watch Project Runway, but there is one person on there that has my attention.  The fabulous Ashley Nell Tipton seems to be doing amazing work this season.  Like I said, I don't get to watch, so you are probably wondering why (or how) I even know her?

Well, the Internet is a powerful and it can be used for good.  Also, I was in a conversation with some people who could not remember the name of the chick with the purple hair on the show.  

I've been looking at some of her sites and although not a fan of purple, I am feeling her hair.  More than that though, I am feeling her sense of style.  The main aspect of Ashley I absolutely love is the fact she is not afraid to wear prints.  Since I own none of her photos, I will not be posting any in this post.  In fact, I invite you to find her social networks and just take a look.  She has even made me want to take other chances.  

If anything, I have learned this from Ashley - be yourself! She looks awesome, not because she is "small" or "perfect" or "conforming".  She looks awesome because she is comfortable in her own skin.  I mean, look at her.  Beautiful smile.  Totally enjoying herself with her colorful hair.  She appears to have a great personality.  And obviously, she can design the hell out of some clothes!!!  That's what makes Ashley awesome!  

Quite frankly, that is what makes us all awesome.  We have to learn to love ourselves, no matter what size we are.  We have to learn to love ourselves no matter what people say about us.  We have to learn to love ourselves and be true to who we are.  We are a wonderful creation and we deserve to be happy in our own skin.  

Good luck, Ashley!!!

We need to talk

I wish I had something fancy to tell you today.  I don't.  When I got in the car from a crazy day at work, I heard something that was shocking.  But at the same time, I'm not surprised because we're hearing about it too often.  

We have to stop making mental health sound like such a bad phrase.  It's real.  People are suffering from it.  People need to know they have someone they can talk to.  People need to know that they are understood.  

If you are in the United States, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline is 1-800-273-8255.  My fellow readers and bloggers in other counties, if you could please comment with the hotline in your location, I will greatly appreciate it.  
Unless we start talking about this, we're going to continue to see RIP and pray for _______.  Aren't you tired of seeing hashtags of people we could have helped?  And no, I'm not just saying this, I've been on the side of this where I almost succeeded.  I've been very open about my …

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…
