Some Wednesday Thoughts

  

Always be you. Always love who you are.  This quote just spoke to me. Lately I just had to remind myself to be ME. I got so caught up with looking at things on instagram and Pinterest, I was putting myself down that my hair wasn’t like that or I wish I had style like they do. That I forgot to look at myself and say no one is me.  I am my own person with a unique style and voice.

With that being said. This weeks Affirmation for me is that I am uniquely me. No one has my vision or voice. My  life is completely mines to do with it what I want to.

One of the biggest things I want my readers to understand is that life is short. We are not promised tomorrow. Be the person you want to be, live life on your own terms.

Keep this in mind as you go about the rest of your week. Have fun. Love openly.  Dance, sing or read but do it because you love it.

Living my life as only I can, 

Ebony Monae

ps,

Never conform to others standards of beauty. Love who you are. Listen to your own heart. Listen to your own voice.

📖One Step at a Time (Update)📖

It’s been so long since I have updated you guys on my book I am writing. I can’t believe it was almost a year ago that I had started writing this book. I have a few more chapters then it will be completed. 

For the record writing a book is hard work. You have all these ideas in your head and when you get it down on paper it just doesn’t sound right. Then you have these moments were you can picture a scene so clearly and write about it so beautifully you shock yourself. 

I’m so happy I took the leap and started writing. It was something I wanted to do with my best friend as she loves books just as much as I do, but it wasn’t something she wanted to do. I knew in my heart it was something that I needed to do. 

I’m so glad I did do it. My story has gotten a lot of love from people all over the world. I have received some great feedback. It has motivated me to finish the book. It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there. I’m glad I did. 

Thank you to my best friend for reading my book, for taking the time to edit and guide me I greatly appreciate it. Thank you for you unyielding belief in me. Thank you to the readers who have taken time out to vote, comment and read my words. To an a writer it means the world. 

If your interested in my story you can find it on Wattpad.com. My username is Geekchick1998. My story is called One Step at a Time. Let me know what you think. I will greatly appreciate it. 

Following her dreams, 

Ebony Monae

Never stop doing the things that brings you joy💜

Thank You And Happy Birthday!! 

  
Thank You Dr. Martin Luther King. Because of you and others, people of color and other races have come a long way towards equality. You gave us a voice. Growing up my grandmother use to sing you praises. Young me thought why? He’s just another preacher. She sat me down and explained to me that you were more.  You were a vision of hope. She described what life was like growing up in the south. She recalled not facing extreme racism like her brothers and sisters due to her lighter skin tone but she remembered how she felt. She felt worthless. 

My grandmother engrained in me to be humble and most of all thankful. Young me wouldn’t understand the significance of her words until later on in my life. 

I won’t put you on a pedalstool because like any other human you had flaws. But I will say that you paved the way for young people like me to not have to take a seat in the back of the bus, a right to equal education, the right to be African America in a country when racicm is still much alive. 

Your bravery and courage paved the way for a black man to be President of the United States. 

It saddens me to see young men and woman forgetting about the people who fought and died for some of the luxuries they have today. It saddens me to see the younger generation putting pop stars as there idols based on looks and the money they flash around. 

It breaks my heart to see we have entered an era where young men and woman are dying at the hands of police officers and that our legal system is failing them.  Justice is not being served. It’s time we all stand up for what matters. No longer should we be silent on these matters. 
We have a voice and it’s our turn to take up the torch and march forward. 

Thankful, 

Ebony Monae

ps,

Wishing you a very special Birthday in Heaven!!

Dream BIG

  
I saw this and it just spoke to me. 

Growing up as a child I had so many dreams but as I got older I didn’t have any. I lost sight of what it was like to have dreams. Most of that is due to having a lot self-doubt and lacking courage to follow them. One thing I have learned is that what are we without our dreams? If F. Scott Fitzgerald didn’t follow his dreams he would not have written American Classics. 

My message to everyone is to Dream! Always follow your Dreams! Never give up on your Dreams! Keep Dreaming! 

Always Dreaming, 

Ebony Monae 💜

ps,

Don’t EVER stop dreaming💗

Love💜 Thy Self💗 First

 My Affirmations for this week!!  
LOVE YOURSELF. 

Guys it’s 2016! Let’s start loving ourself’s. That’s the most important thing to do for yourself is to LOVE it. I truly and whole heartedly believe you can’t love anyone in this world if you don’t love who you are. Why do I think this you may be wondering. If you don’t love yourself this opens up doors for people to treat you badly. It allows people to put you down, degrade you. People pray on others with no self love. They like that. It empowers them. 

Do not give them that power! 

The words other say won’t matter because you know who you are! 

I want everyone that will read this to look in the mirror and say I Love Me! 

Much Love, 

EbonyMonae💜

ps

Alway remember in this world you come first and it does not make you a bad person to put yourself first.

Reflection of 2015💗

As 2015 ended and 2016 begins. I felt the need to reflect back on several things this past year that I have been through and overcame!

I was sick.  But I made it through. I was literally seeing a hematologist everyweek. Having 12 big vials of blood drawn out every week. One problem affected all the other health problems I had going on. Some days I wanted to give up. But I had to believe God had better plans for my life. When I felt like I couldn’t go on. I got the strength to go on. When I felt alone my best friend was by myside through it all. 

 I learned that life is precious and it’s time to leave my comfort zone.  Going through a lot of health problems has taught me this. Life is supposed to be lived. I refuse to live by the sidelines.

Family! I let that go. I embraced my non-tradional family. That’s means I was adopted by a family that loved me. I was adopted into a family at the age of five that for years I felt like I didn’t belong because I wouldn’t conform to there way of thinking. For years I was hurt because I felt unloved by them, I tried to make them love me. Let me work harder in school, let me let them use me to show them I will always be there. They didn’t understand me. I learned that the siblings you grow up with or parents who raise you doesn’t intentionally mean that they have to be your family. I learned that the people who were suppose to by my side during my darkest days were not. Through a lot of reflection I learned that it’s okay.  I can’t make people love me. I can’t make people be there for me. I can’t change who I am to be someone I a not so they can like me. I also learned that my non traditional family is my family. I am loved and I am accepted flaws and all. 

I am learning to love Ebony Monae.  I have let people make me feel worthless, ugly, unlovable. This year it stopped. My friend told me I had to look at myself objectively. What did I see when I looked at myself. I saw a fighter. When life got hard I kept on pushing. When people doubted me I showed them what I am made of. When people who I loved hurt me, I learned to let go. That for me is the hardest thing to do. When I look in the mirror I see beauty, not just my outward appearance but my inner beauty is shining through. I see a kind spirit. Someone who loves to laugh and make others do the same. 

I am not perfect. I learned that it’s okay to fail. To make mistakes. Life is all about growth. Make mistakes and learn from them. Fail but always get back up. 

In 2016 I want to do so many things and nothing will Stop Me!! 

In 2016 I promise to:

Live Life! 

Love 💜 Myself! 

Forgive! 

Make Mistakes! 

Laugh😂!

Be Kind! 

Be Genergous! 

Love, Freely/Hard!!! 

Be Healthy!!

Be HAPPY😊!!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! May we all work on things this year that brings us happiness!
