So Good!

Good Morning!!  I hope this post finds you guys in great spirits and if not I hope I can cheer you up.

“……..Wasn’t it you that said
That I wouldn’t make it through
And wasn’t it you that said
That I didn’t look too good, that I wouldn’t do too good
I’d never make it out the ‘hood
I want you to know that I’m doin’ so good………….”

Above is the some lyrics from Destiny Child song “So Good”. I heard this song when I was younger but back then it was just a song with a good beat. Now I understand it. All my life people have told me that I wouldn’t be very much. Wouldn’t amount to very much. Told me that I would be just another statistic.

People will say awful things about you. People will belittle and put you down. Don’t listen to them. Keep pushing ahead. Now I am a college graduate. I live on my own. I work two jobs. And I would say I am a little bit of a world traveler.

My point to you is that don’t let other peoples words determine what you make of yourself. Your life is your life. Do something amazing with it. Do something that people never thought you would with it.

So Good,

Ebony Monae

ps,

Speak positively over your life!!

Still I Rise!

Who ever wrote this quote I thank you. This quote is me. I have been through some things in my life. I have been hurt, I have been beaten, I have been raped, I have been told I wouldn’t amount to anything, I have been used by love ones. But God, he is good. Today’s stands a women who is strong, resilient, confident.

I will continue to rise. I will continue to disapprove everything that’s said about me.

To my readers continue to rise. Continue to have confidence in yourself. Your past is just that your past. God he is merciful. He will continue to give you strength.

Rising,

Ebony Monae

ps,

Happy Birthday Beautiful💜

Miss Honesty Rose🌹

Honesty you mean so much to me. The love I have for you transcends time. I can’t even put it in to words. I love you with every fiber of my being. So this this letter is for you to look back on when life gets hard and when I’m no longer around. 

Dear Honesty,

 I love  you very much. Seeing you the first few hours you were born into this world I knew in my 💜 you were going to be something great. You were so tiny when I first laid eyes on you but you were a strong little thing. A fighter. You were born five weeks early but that didn’t stop you. It has been an honor to watch you grow, laugh, and learn. Remember to keep God close to your heart. He will always be there for you. You are his greatest creation never forget that. 

Honesty as you get older you will learn that life will knock you down. You will see friends come and go. You will have boys break your heart. In life there will be dark moments but  there will always be beautiful moments. These moments are what we live for. These moments are what makes life worth living. 

Honesty you will make mistakes in your life. If you didn’t you would not be living life. To truly grow and mature you have to learn from these mistakes. Remember a mistake is something you do once or twice, if it becomes more it is not a mistake it is an habit. Acknowledging ones mistakes also makes them the bigger person. With that being said don’t forget to say sorry when you are wrong. 

Don’t look back and regret life my love. Enjoy it, LIVE IT. Do whatever you want to do with your life. Baby girl don’t let anyone ever tell you the sky is the limit because there are footprints on the moon. Shoot for the moon and stars. Grab life by the horns and keep on pushing. If you fall remember I will always be there to help you stand up again. I will always be here to guide you. 

Life has a way of changing at a drop of a dime Honesty but remember when it does go with the changes, I know its easier to hang on to the past but embrace the change. God knows the plan he has for your life. 

Always follow your heart because it can lead you on amazing journeys. I can not wait to see what God has in store for you. I love you so very much. Don’t ever forget that💜 

Love Always and Forever, 

Auntie💜

Happy First Birthday Honesty Rose💜

Enjoying Yourself, Quotes

Take the Time For Yourself

Good Morning. Happy hump day! 

Today I wanted to write about doing something by yourself. I love this quote above. It perfectly sums up what I kind of been feeling lately. 

I can assure you that I am one of those people that always has to have someone with me. I don’t like doing things alone. I will most defiantly pull the “best friend card”. I feel uncomfortable doing things alone. It feels weird that your dining or going to the movies by yourself. 

 I am learning that it’s okay to do things by yourself. You don’t need anyone with you to have a good time. Yeah it’s  good to have someone with you but you have to learn that you don’t need anyone with you. You have to learn to be content with yourself. 

So this week I want you to focus on doing something by yourself. It can be anything such as going to the movies, a festival, a concert or just walking around the park. Take this time for you. Take this time to dance. 

Being Content With Myself,

Ebony Monae

ps, 

I hope you dance💜

Take A Risk With Your Life! 

Happy Monday💜

 Over the weekend we lost a great man. Mohammed Ali. He was a remarkable man. He stood by what he believed in and he never changed who he was. He also never gave up. 

Today I want to write a post about one of his famous quotes. 

The quote above really spoke to me. Take risk in your life. Life is such a beautiful thing. It’s a blessing to be able to live. I am one of the many people that stuggle with taking risks. I am a person that loves my comfort zone. If we continue to stay in our comfort zone we will not accomplish much in our lives. 

Take a risk in with your life. Do something that your scared to do. Have that faith in yourself and just leap. If you fail at least you know that you tried. Trying is better than regret. 

Being Courageous, 

Ebony Monae 

ps, 

Have the courage to take the risk. Be bold, be fierce and don’t let fear stop you.
