The 100th prelude

There have been so many of you who have watched me grow and develop this blog.  Some of you have been there from the first post over three and a half year ago.  Others of you have joined in along the way.  No matter how you found me or when you decided to be part of my TPD Army, I am so thankful for you.  

For those of you there from the very beginning, you also know this - I've blogged a lot this year.  Just this year, I've surpassed the rest of the years total for the number of blogs.  It was just this year in February that I wrote my 100th post ever in this blog.  Now, I am getting ready to write my 100th post this year.  Talk about an accomplishment.  

A lot of you have been there before I started adding great photos.  So many of you have been there when my blog was just basic - by my standards.  And so many of you have been there cheering me on when I honestly felt like it was time to give up.  However, there is one thing you always did - you kept coming back for more.  That's part of the reason I didn't stop - because you kept wanting more.  When I discovered you kept wanting more, it forced me to change and with my own change, my blog took a wonderful turn.  

I started to add many more adventures.  I hate to call it my favorite thing, but the fact some of you have participated in my impromptu tweetchats mean so much to me.  If you recall my blog post about the first one, you know that it didn't go so well.  Truth be told, I figured why do it again?  Well, if I had to guess, some of the tweetchats I participate in didn't go as planned the first time either, but look at how much they have grown?  I mean, I remember chatting it up in #HautiesTalk with ManikMag with their very talented founder Selina.  Even though they are across the pond, I enjoy chatting it up in a chat hosted by The Girl Gang.  It's all about making connections and learning to not give up just because something didn't work out the first time.  At least I had the motivation to have a first time and not a what if moment.  I hope you have the motivation to do the same, in whatever endeavor you decide to take on.  

Then, I love how you have allowed me to love myself.  Let me guess - you are like huh?  Let me explain this one.  You have made me feel great about who I am and what I do.  My blog itself is called The Plus Diaries because I know and understand the plus life because I have lived it all my life!  When I thought I was not worthy of the cute clothes and felt really bad about myself (even as I was writing this blog), you let me feel like it was OK.  I don't know any of these ladies personally, but I love the attitude of Nadia, the confidence of Alysse, and the creative genius of Gabi.  They have absolutely no clue how they have kept me going.  Sometimes, the best motivation is watching other people.  Not only is it motivation, but it is also a good learning method.  

But to you, my readers, my fan, my followers, my motivators, my people who won't let me stop - I hear you loud and clear and I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.  This is wear words begin to fail me because I can never thank each one of you and I will never be able to show the love I have for you in return.  But what I can do is keep writing.  I can keep posting in this blog, posting on Instagram, posting on Twitter, and eventually Facebook (yep, new blog past is being created)!  Yes, I will even keep dabbling in Periscope as well.  

This blog may be written by me, but it is definitely for you!  I figure if I'm feeling like this, I can't possibly be the only one.  Typically, I'm right about that.  Thank you for allowing this platform to grow.  I truly adore each one of you and I am looking forward to the next few years of this blog.  I hope you enjoyed this post because it is number 98 for the year.  When 100 gets here, I hope you will be ready for the ride!!!

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…

POWER

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…

Painful

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!

Hones…
