Thinking until my brain hurts

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post about something very exciting happening in this blog.  Just in case you forgot, FEATURES are coming to this blog and I am thrilled to be doing this!  It is something I have thought and prayed long about.  I don't know how it is going to turn out, but please know that I'm excited for the journey.  

Well, now I have to help guide you to these particular posts!  Keep in mind, I've been thinking about doing these features long before I announced them to you.  That translates to this - I've been trying to figure out a name for the features that fit my personality and also is cool if (well when) I start featuring guys in my blog.  After much thinking and running a few ideas past a really awesome friend of mine, the decision has finally been made!  

The features will be titled...."Backstage Pass"!  I'm so excited to share the name with you.  Now, you know when you see the title, you know it is a feature.  The person being featured will also be in the title so you know who you are reading about.  

I think that is about it for tonight!  First feature is happening in the early part of January.  I'm so excited to share my first guest with you and she is excited to be featured.  Bring it on, 2016 - I got you!

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…
