What Is It Like?

What Is It Like To Be You? 

Morning!

Last night I was watching the ending of the movie The Help. Which is a good movie by the way. I hope you have seen it. Well in the movie Viola Davis character stated,  “No one ever asked me what is it like to be me?”

That profound statement stuck to me. What is it like to be you? BE ME? I would think that I had some profound answer to this question but honestly I do not. You know why? Because I never asked myself that question.

To my readers what is it like to be you? Do you have any profound answers? I would love to know. Leave a comment please and thank you. One thing I would suggest is to be honest with yourself. Sometimes truth hurts but it can also make you realize a lot of things in your life.

As always Be Inspired<3

It’s Your Voice, Use It

Mawning sunshines, Happy Monday.

Today I want you remind you that you have a voice and that its in your right to use it. Some of us for to long felt like we didn’t have a voice. Let me remind you that you DO. 

I know what its like to not to use your voice. I was in that predicament for years. Just taking and taking and never ever speaking up. Until one day I did. I took back my voice. I spoke up about everything that hurt me and that no longer benefitted me. So take back your voice and speak up.

Xoxo,

Ebony Monae

Silence is Golden 

Morning beauties. Let’s have a wonderful and amazing day. 

“The smarter you get, the less you speak.” 

I freaking love that. It’s true. I’m learning that not everything requires a response. Recently I had someone text me and basically say that they didn’t want to talk to me anymore. I truly wanted to respond to them but I took a moment to regroup myself and was basically like screw you. You don’t get a reward. That reward is bestowing you with my response.  So I didn’t respond. I applied my 5by5 rule and let it go. I’m done with being upset over people who don’t want to speak with me. I been there and done that and I’m sure you have as well. 

My advice to you is to be quiet. I understand that sometimes you want to respond but sometimes things don’t need it your silence is golden. Apply this to your life and see how much it will benefit you. 

Be Amazing, Be Beautiful and Be Vibrant.

Learning to be Content with Myself

Good morning loves. Happy Thursday. I hope your week is going great. I hope your being the best you person you can be.  

I had this quote above saved in draft folder for a long time but significance of it didn’t hit home until recently. 

I am forever being pulled in many different directions. Trying to make time for everyone. For that I am to blamed. I agree to do things that I sometimes forget that I’m not superwoman. That I forget about me. I forget about taking time for me. This weekend I did that. I took five glorious days for myself. I went shopping, had dinner alone, went to a poetry show. I went on a mini road trip. It was fine. In therapy my therapist and I are working on me doing things alone. Being content with myself. I always have to bring someone with me for me to be comfortable doing things. In all honesty I was scared to do things alone. I mean who wants to. 

One thing I learned from last week is you can do it. You can take time for yourself and be unapologetic about it. Last week I also got into a fight with my girlfriends and it was a small thing that turned into a big thing. It had me thinking that maybe I should do this so we can be back to where we were even when I didn’t want to. Even when I was not ready to. I was setting a course for my life based on them. If that makes any sense. I had to really take a step back and say no. I had to acknowledge that I’m still upset and hurt by what transpired and that its okay for me to be. 

What’s not okay is that I would have went down a different avenue just so we would not be mad at each other again. In that instance I let the argument set a different course of my life.  

In the end this quote just embodied everything I aiming to be. I’m working on me. I’m doing what I want with my life. I’m learning to let go of others perceptions about life and learning to understand my own. 

If you take anything from this post take the fact that you can have time set aside just for you and you can enjoy it ALONE.

As always Be Amazing, Be Beautiful and Be Vibrant💜

be unapologetic about who you are!

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!!

Put Yourself Out There🖖🏾

It’s Thursday you know what that means it’s also thurstday. That means go out after your work day for a drink or two. Go meet someone new. Strike up a conversation. Have a good time. You might even meet someone special❤️

I get it. I really do. You don’t want to meet anyone because everyone seems like a shitty person. Or you might think you have enough friends. Or lastly you don’t like putting yourself out there. If that describes you, then let me tell you STOP THAT! Stop thinking those thoughts. Not every person is bad. Not every person will become your best friend. Put yourself out there. You may never know who you might inspire with your words. 

My friends always tell me I am a people person. I don’t see it that way. I see myself as antisocial person. But last night something clicked. I was waiting online to get gas and this woman was holding up the line because her card wasn’t working. So I just mad conversation about sandwiches at the gas station being overpriced. (Seriously they are overpriced $7.39 for a small nasty wrap). Before you know it the whole line was all talking to each other. What clicked was that it’s not the end of the world. I’m not going to divulge my deepest secrets to them. It’s about stepping out of my comfort zone to make that conversation. 

Go out and meet new people. Go out and make conversation. Don’t keep yourself inside your comfort zone. Go let other people know what an amazing person your are! Have fun!! 

Going Out, 

Ebony Monae 

ps, 

Someone you haven’t even met yet is wondering what it’d be like to know someone like you!!

Happy Friday Loves💜! 

It’s Friday! Finally I can unwind and relax. NOT! Busy weekend coming up! Enough about me. How is everyone doing? I hope you had an amazing week. I hope you did all the things you wanted to do. I hope you stuck to you healthy eating plan. I hoped you walked away from people that hurt you. I hope you stood up for yourself. If not there is always tomorrow OR right now. Remember life is too short to waste on tomorrow’s. Right now in this moment claim your life back. 

My message to you on this Friday is don’t give up. Life will confuse you. Life will knock you down. Keep on fighting the good fight. Whatever you do, DO NOT GIVE UP! I believe that anything you put your mind to you can achieve. 

Last week I applied to take the civil service test for child protective services in my county. I actually take it a month away. Then on Wednesday I received an email for a per Diem job opportunity working with foster children. God is amazing! A couple of months ago I was  lost with my life. No plan, no direction. Now I have a job opportunity. Maybe I will like it. Maybe I won’t. But I will say that I’m going to try it. I don’t want to sit back and let opportunities pass me by.   

Life is all about learning and growing. I am learning about me. I told you guys in previous post for too long I have put so many people before me. Now I will put myself first💜! 

My message to you is to trust in Gods promise. He has a plan for your life. He will not lead you astray. I’m a testament to that. So trust in your journey. Yea, you may feel lost and yea you may feel alone, but know this you are not alone because I too have been in that place your in at this moment. I know that if you don’t give up amazing things will happen in your life. 

Blessed and Highly Favored, 

Ebony Monae!

Feeling THE BERN🔥🔥🔥

Tuesday was NY state primary for president and I voted for Bernie Sanders. Why? Simple, because I believe in everything he stands for. He is a man that’s stands for many! He has ideas that can transform this nation. 

Sadly we did not win New York for him, but he is catching up to Hilary Clinton in the polls. He can change our nation. It’s time we ALL took a stand against big money in politics, healthcare, education, climate change, incarceration. Too many people have been quiet for to long. We must stand up and demand these changes. 
  
Bernie know this I’m with you! I’m with you until you decide you have gave it your all. Like I said on my Instagram post “I’m with you like Cap and Bucky till the end of the line.” (Follow me, ebony_monaes_thoughts) 

People ask me all the time your a woman why not vote for a women. It’s not about gender, it’s about people that are falling through the cracks in our nation. It’s about a nation that’s for everyone not just the 1%, it’s about ALL AMERICANS! Hilary doesn’t stand for everyone. Last week Verizon employees went on strike because 40,000 jobs are be outsourced to India. Did I see Hilary rallying with these Americans that are going to loose there jobs? No! Why because she doesn’t CARE! To know what we ordinary citizens go through you have to speak to us. You have to come down your high horse and see what we face everyday. 

Why I’m voting for Bernie because education and healthcare reform is dear to my heart. I’m a college student that in my junior year I faced a lot of health problems. As I graduate in May, I am coming out of college with a lot of school debt that I’m an struggling to pay back. Why? Because there are not a lot of jobs that can pay me what I need to survive. I cut back on a lot of things just to put money in other areas of my life such as bills. Bills (I hate that word)!!

Bernie Sanders you had my vote and that of many of my friends. We STAND WITH YOU because you are fighting for causes that matter. These causes will affect our children futures. We got to make sure things are done right by them. 

Thank you Bernie Sanders for standing up for the 99%! 

Feeling The Bern, 

Ebony Monae🔥🔥

Vote, we can’t not have bigots like Donald Trump running this Country!!
