Body Positive Monday

Morningggggg lovesss,

So yesterday evening I posted a post that was very raw to me. I hope you read it. If not it’s going to be right before this one. Today’s quote is:

Love your body. I have big ass boobs and a flat butt but you know what I’m going to love me anyway. I also have stretch marks galore. But I’m going to love how God made me. I know it’s hard. Trust me it’s freaking hard. But love it anyway. It’s time we learn to love us for US.

Love you guys and I hope my quote helps you💕

XoXo 😘

-E

Accepting Myself 💕

Hey Loves,

This week I want us to practice acceptance of ourselves. This post is one of the realist ones I have written. I feel it’s time to.

This is me in 2011 at the age of 21.

You wouldn’t know it but I am struggling with body acceptance in this photo. I thought I was fat. I thought I was ugly. I wouldn’t never have my hair natural it had to be permed and blown silky straight.

Now this is the most recent full body photo I have. This was September 2017 at the age of 27.

This photo I am still struggling with body acceptance. I let go of some misconceptions I had about myself. I LOVE my natural hair. I don’t ever have it straightened unless I feel like it. I struggle to see the beauty in myself at times.

I struggle with acceptance of my body. Growing up it was hard. I fully believe loving oneself starts at home where your more comfortable with family. It was not like that for me. I was more developed up top than most girls. My mother would always bring that to my attention and put me down for it like I could control my genetics. She would buy me big shirts to

hide my breast and make me where them. I had to listen to negative comments about myself and my weight. Hearing negative thoughts all your childhood has great impact on who your are in your adulthood.

I’m at a age where I can’t blame my mother for it any longer. I understand it’s time for me to accept me for me. But it’s so damn hard.

Today I want to encourage men and woman to love you for you. I know it’s not easy but start small. Here’s some tips I suggest:

  1. Have your friends text you encouraging words everyday.
  2. Download Pinterest and find uplifting and encouraging wallpapers for your phone that you like.
  3. Have a mirror and a dry erase marker? If you do, write some encouraging words to yourself.
  4. Have post it’s and a sharpie? Leave stickies in hidden places so you can find them randomly.

Gabby quote is so inspiring. It’s time we love our bodies💜

One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body. I got tired of hating myself. < em> -Gabourey Sidibe Let’s begin the journey of self acceptance together. It’s going to rough road but I am ready. Are You?!?

XoXo 😘,

The Aftermath

Afternoon loves,

Yesterday I didn’t get a chance to blog because I was at the funeral with my friends. When I tell you it was the hardest day in my life, I’m not joking. When my friends cried over there son it broke my heart because you could feel there pain. I never want to hear or witness pain like that in my life.

All week I was racked with quilt because I felt like I couldn’t help her. As I sit and type this it finally hit home that I can help her. I can be there for them while they grieve there son. I found a great quote that I feel helps with grief.

It’s going to be a while before they start the healing process. I want you to know. I will sit there and hold you while you cry. What your both going through has to be the most painful thing in the world. Know your not alone.

When your ready to start the healing process I will be there too. For a long time I struggled with the things that happened to me. I didn’t understand it. Why did God pick me. I am now coming to the realization that God picked me because he has a purpose for my pain. He has a purpose for me and I believe that is to help others. Guide others.

We go through some of the darkest days of our lives. During the storm we don’t see the light but we do come through it. And we are stronger than before. I know your in your storm right now but know that God has a purpose for your pain.

Anyone that’s reading this. The same applies to you. Trust in him. Trust his purpose for your life.

Inspiring Others💜

Morning loves,

Today I am a little bit more upbeat, than I have been these last few days.

Sometimes I meet people who think that there lives won’t ever inspire others. Hell even I think that but we forget that whatever we are going through can help someone. That roadblock you were on and got through, can inspire someone to get through there’s. That new job you were scared to go after but Finally Did. Can inspire someone to follow there dreams. That bad breakup you got over when you didn’t think you could but DID. Can inspire someone else.

So don’t think your story can’t inspire others because it can and to myself baby girl your story can inspire the masses to so don’t you forget that. (Sometimes in need that pep talk too💜)

Inspiring Others 💜,

Trust Him

Morning Loves,

This morning my heart is still heavy. As mentioned yesterday my friend lost her son. I’m still coming to terms with it myself. In moments like this you want to be supportive and be there for your friends. I still don’t know what to say that will make it okay. That will ease her pain. In times like this I’m learning to trust my on my own faith.

For anyone that’s going through anything. Trust on your faith.

Know that God will get you through it. Sometimes it’s hard to hear that but know God is there. When I feel like my back is to the wall I always say “God won’t give me more than I can handle.” I repeat it all the time and that simple phrase gets me through it. I feel empowered because he knows what I can handle.

Keeping the Faith,

EM💜

ps,

Baby girl I love you more than you know. No words can heal your heart right now but know I am here always.

Sorrow

Morning loves,

Yesterday I received some devastating news my good friend son passed away. He was going to be two this month. I wish I knew what to say. I’m usually the person that always has something to say but this morning my mind is coming up blank.

Have you guys experienced anything like this? If so what should I do? What should I say?

Advice is much needed. Thank You💜

New Month, New Mindset

Evening,

I hope my post finds you doing well and if not I hope my post uplifts your spirit.

It’s a new month to explore new things. To start a book you always wanted. To go to that hunted house your were to scared to go to before. Or something even simpler try that pumpkin spice latte you waited every fall to try but never had the time to. This month I want to encourage you to take time for yourself.

This month I’m blogging for one straight month for my October Series my hope is to reach someone who might need that uplifting word.

So here’s to the magic of new beginnings loves🌟🌟

Stay Blessed,

EM💜
