This is me saying THANK YOU!

Tomorrow is a super awesome day in my life.  This blog, The Plus Diaries, turns 3 years old!!!  What a wonderful 3 year journey this has been and it could not have happened without your support!  So, I figured, it's about time I thank my faithful readers and loyal followers.  

How am I going to say thank you?  Well, it's time for the first ever giveaway in The Plus Diaries!  Starting on May 26th and going until May 30, I will be doing a daily giveaway.  It's open to ALL readers!  Five different days will generate five different winners.  However, like most things in life, there are a few rules to this contest.  

Rule 1 - You MUST be following me on Bloglovin!  You can simply click on the link on the right of the page to follow.  You do not have to have a blog in order to follow people.  Also, you will only get a notification when I post something new.  Besides, this will be a huge help when the contest starts.  

Rule 2 - You MUST be following me on Twitter and/or Instagram!  You can find the links to both pages on the right side of this page.  

Rule 3 - You MUST be the first person to answer the question correctly via email at theshaylaem@gmail.com!  

Now that we have those out of the way, here is how you answer the question.  Simply email me at the email listed in Rule 3.  Within this same email, please let me know your twitter name and/or instagram name (so that I can make sure you are following me on one of those sites).  With this information, I can give you an awesome shoutout!  Don't worry about your Bloglovin' name because it will automatically shoot me an email.  Once I have verified all of this information, I will respond to your email so I can get your contact info so I can mail out your prize.  

Prize?  You are probably wondering what that is.  The prize is a 10 dollar gift card from Starbucks!!!  How wonderful is this?!  

OK, peeps!  It's that simple.  Remember, this starts on May 26th!  Good luck to 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…
