We Are 3

Oh, man, where did the time go?!  When I started this blog, on this day, exactly 3 years ago, I honestly had no idea what I was getting into.  I didn't know if it would be more personal about how I felt being a plus diva.  I didn't know if I was going to be deep and try to say some profound things people would remember.  I didn't know if I would enjoy the conversation because some people can be cruel.  I didn't know what other subjects I was going to talk about.  The only thing I knew on this day 3 years ago is that I wanted to write and I wanted to do good writing.  

I can honestly tell you, starting this blog has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I still don't know what I'm getting into, but I'm loving the journey.  I have enjoyed letting you into my life as a plus diva.  I have enjoyed trying to find profound things to say that will stick with you.  I have enjoyed the conversation because you have been so kind and generous with your feedback.  I still never know what I am going to talk about because everything around me inspires me.  But I do know one thing?  You have let me know that you have enjoyed me writing and to the majority of you, it is good writing.  

With that being said, I cannot do this post without saying THANK YOU!!!  To all of you who constantly read, comment, share, and just give support, I wouldn't have gotten this far without you.  I love the fact you choose to read my blog when you could be doing other things.  You taking time out of your day to enter my world for just a little while is so amazing and it makes me so happy.  I started off by doing this blog because I loved to write.  However, I have started to love this blog even more because you challenge me to be better.  You challenge me to talk about things I never thought I would be able to share.  YOU did that.  For all of you, I am grateful.  

I usually try to leave names out when I am saying thank you because I always forget people.  However, I have to mention some people in this post.  First, to my wonderful friend and manager Stacy, you are a blessing beyond measure.  Thank you for pushing me and thank you for never allowing me to give up.  We have so much more work to do, but I am looking forward to the journey of harder work you are getting ready to take me on.  Thank you to my friend Denise.  You are a powerful rock star and so full of encouragement.  You motivate me each day.  The minute I told you about my blog and what it was about, you supported it and that alone means so much to me.  Finally, thank you Michelle from Love, Michelle Ana!  When I met you just over a year ago, I never imagined the force you would be in my life!  You are constantly striving for greatness and never let anyone you know settle for less than great.  You are truly an inspiration.  

Well, I think should do it for me today!  I still cannot believe we have come this far and we have so many more years to go.  

If you haven't already checked it out, please make sure you read about the giveaway happening in this blog starting tomorrow!  Yes, I made it easy - just click "giveaway" and it will take you right there.  All the rules you need are there and I even told you what the prize would be.  I just couldn't keep it to myself.  

Again, thank you for entering my life and in a way, allowing me to enter yours.  You may not know it or believe it, but each one of you hold a special place in my heart and in this blog.  Without you, I wouldn't still be doing this.  #WeAre3 today and this third year is going to be better than the previous two!  Oh, what surprises is this year going to bring?

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…


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…


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!
