THANK YOU for giving me happy moments.

THANK YOU for giving me crying moments.

THANK YOU for showing me that I’m strong despite my shortcomings.

Today I write this. I am going to FORGIVE MYSELF for the hours I wasted.

FORGIVE MYSELF, for the chances I didn’t take.

FORGIVE MYSELF, for not listening to my own voice.

FORGIVE MYSELF, for loving someone who didn’t deserve me.

I PLEDGE this year to take more chances in life.

Start Living Your Best Life

Good Afternoon Loves,

So many things to say today and not enough time( I’m adulting and at work today), I will keep it short and sweet.

I want to encourage everyone to live there best life. Don’t let fear stop you from living your best life. Life is way to short to have regrets.

If you let fear dictate your life your not really living. Take it from me. I let someone I know in my heart that wasn’t good for me back in my life because I was scared of dating. Scared of putting myself out there.

This past weekend I walked away. I chose my happiness and I joined a dating app. I decided fear doesn’t get to control me.

What will your decision be today?

XoXo 😘,

Just Go With The Flow

Morning loves,

Today I’m feeling so great today. I woke up and my whole mindset changed. I stopped planning my day and just chose to go with the flow. I’m a planner, I like to have things planned out. Lately nothing has been going the way I want. Yesterday I got some good advice “don’t start your day with a plan, because if you do and it doesn’t go to plan your whole mindset will be changed for the day.”

Can I say that this morning. I didn’t wake up dreading going into work. Instead I snoozed my alarm two times(I love those five extra minutes of sleep), woke up, took a deep breath and started my day. I didn’t plan on what task I was going to accomplish first. It really helped me.

My advice to you; take a deep breath and just go with the flow.

Have a great morning!!

XoXo ,

E

Morning loves,

Hope my fellow New Yorkers are having a wonderful snow ❄️ day.

As I was driving to work(I’m one of those people who had to work) I was thinking about how I keep on pushing through every obstacle thrown my way. I thought how truly blessed I am. I’m still here despite what I went though.

Just wanted to give you guys some motivation this morning. Keep on living!!! Life maybe hard but don’t give up!

Don’t give up! Don’t give in!

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 😘,
