Happy December!!

I can’t believe this year has flew past so quickly. I can tell you that I have deff been slacking off with my blogging last month and I’m so sorry about that. I had my hands full with everything. I have some great things planned for next year I will say.  I hope all my readers are doing amazing. 

The inspiration for this month is to do something you promised yourself that you were going to do all year long and you didn’t. It could be simple as read two books or more daring like go on a date. Do this for yourself you won’t be sorry I promise. 

I can tell you that I am working on self-care and financial health for this month. Most likely it will be in my New Years resolution as well. Those are the main things I feel I need to work on. Now self-care for me includes everything from healthy eating, staying with my facial routine, attending my therapy appointments and doing the things I love. What’s yours? 

This month I really want you guys to do something you didn’t do this year that you promised yourself. Leave a comment on this post I would love to hear about it.

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.

Well Hello There👋🏾

Good Morning. HAPPY SATURDAY💜 Who waits for Saturday to come? I sure do. I love just laying in bed and not having to hear a alarm go off. It feels amazing. 

I hope my post finds you doing amazingly well. I hope you have nothing but peace and happiness today. 

Today’s the day just to enjoy and relax. Have a good time. Meet up with a old friend. Catch a late summer yard sale. Or better yet do nothing. Stay at home and watch tv or read a book. That’s the beauty of it. It’s your day do as you please. 

As always, Be Beautiful, Be Amazing, Be Vibrant💜

Until next time, 

Ebony Monae💜

Where to Next

Morning. Rise and shine and let the world know you came to SLAY💁🏾 

Who can say by a show of how many likes this post gets that the picture you had for yourself at your age now is not where you thought you would be. That being said I will be the first to like this post. 

At twenty six going on twenty-seven. I thought I would be finished with my masters degree and engaged. Is that how my life is now? Hell to the no. I’m twenty six and I’m still trying to figure what I want to do with the rest of my life. A couple months ago I wrote that I thought after I graduated college there was a manuscript on life. You graduate and have it all figured out. The bare honest truth is you don’t. Nothing is figured out. 

For a while I was ashamed to admit that. Why? Well because I was scared. I am a planner. I like things to be planned. But God. That amazing person showed me that he has the answers not me. 

So now I just take it a day at a time. I don’t know where I’m suppose to be. I don’t know what I’m suppose to do but I have faith and I trust God to guide me. Somedays it seems I have it all together and other days I’m just like lord send me a sign. Help me. 

The beauty is I’m where I’m meant to be! That can happen to you as well. Let go of that thought you have in your head about yourself. If your religious or spiritual let it all guide you to your next destination on this journey we call life. 

As always 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💜

Do Something with Soul💜

Morning Sunshines☀️. I hope my post finds you in a great spirit this morning. 

Meraki. I love this word. Who can say they doing something with there soul and love it? Me I do. 🙋🏾 Who can say they leave a piece of themselves behind in everything that they do? 🙋🏾 Oh me again. 

My blog is my Meraki. When I saw this word I was like do I have anything like it describes. Then I thought of this baby. I have been writing my blog for almost two years now. This is all my creativity. This is my heart. This is what I am going to leave behind when I die. This is a piece of me. This is a glimpse into my jumbled crazy life. This is my dream to inspire the uninspired. To help those that need that little bit of encouragement. Every time I write a post I’m putting myself out there either to be laughed at or loved. The thing is I do it. I let my creativity flow. 

My point is this morning find your Meraki. Find something that gives your life meaning. Find something that makes your soul sing. If you have something you love doing continue to do it. Continue to let your creativity flow. 

On a Journey to Discovery💜



Life is beautiful once you find something that gives it meaning.

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


I hope you dance💜
