Blogger Recognition Award

I feel like I'm walking the blogger red carpet.  Another award in such a short time.  OMG - believe me when I tell you I'm honored.  I've worked hard in this blog for the past (almost) 4 years and even when I went away, yall stayed.  I am so thankful for all of you and each time you give me a little recognition, it makes me want to do and be better.  

Well, without further ado, I guess I need to get to why you are all here!  The very talented Theo from The Curl Prince blog nominated me for this great honor and I am so thankful!!!  💛💛💛  I think you should go check him out and give him and his blog a follow.  
As usual, there are some rules I have to follow and I'm getting ready to handle that part. 

I'm going to keep this short.  This award means so much to me!  Not because people are finally starting to recognize my work, but because I feel like I am finally in a league of some of the bloggers I admire.  You set goals as a blogger - posts you want to write, events you want to attend, page views, comments on your post, and don't even get me started on social media!  But when you get the chance to be seen in a way such it this, it just means so much because it makes you feel like all your hard work has not been in vain.  So thank you so much for allowing me into your life - one post, tweet, or instagram post at a time.  For putting up with me, even on my worst days, you are the real MVP!  

Why did I start this blog?  That's quite simple - for this blog, I had some great people telling me I should start this particular blog.  I have had three other blogs, but they didn't last.  This one though, all of you keep pushing me and I never want to leave!  You're stuck with me now! 

Who am I getting ready to nominate for this award?  Don't worry, the wait is over!  Here are my nominations (in no particular order)!

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

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…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…
