What is a quote that inspires you?!?!
Life is made up of these days. I’m testament to this. I have experienced some of the worst days of my life. Let me tell you on those days it definitely poured. I didn’t know how to get my life back on track. I prayed and asked god to guide me.
I’m standing here in Gods grace as I type this post to you. My life is not perfect but it’s not what it use to be.
My point of this post is to know that when it rains just know that god has plans for beautiful flowers to grow. You may doubt him and become angry with him but know your life is going to be okay.
As we prepare to lay down for the night. I want to you to think about what the next 364 days will hold for you. Think about all the things you want to do.
Until tomorrow my loves sweet dreams.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
It’s the last week of the year. As you know this month has been about self-care for me. This week I’m practicing forgiveness. I’m forgiving others so my spirit can be at peace.
Over the last week I have been spending more time with my family since my aunt is visiting from North Carolina. What stood out to me the most was seeing my mom bring up things from almost twenty years ago. I had to tell my mom to let it go. Your blaming my aunt for something she had no control over. Let it go. Forgive my grandmother for what happened and move on. That hurt and pain you have been carrying for way too long. Give your heart peace.
For all those who hurt me and wronged me I forgive you. I wish you nothing but the best in life.
This week I want to inspire you to forgive those who have wronged you and move on with your life. Leave the pain and the hurt in 2016. Walk into 2017 with forgiveness in your heart.
forgiveness is not about letting someone off the hook for there actions, but freeing ourselves of negative energies that bind us to them.
What Is It Like To Be You?
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
“You is smart, you is kind, you is important!”

If your anything like me your always worrying about tomorrow. My advice to you, DON’T. This quote somes it all up perfectly. What’s coming will come. Don’t worry about it. Everything will fall into place. Live your life in the meantime. Tackle everything as it comes.
Hope your practicing self-care this month and just honoring thy self💜.
Let go and let God.
Good Morning. Happy Tuesday.
All month long is self care month for me. Taking care of yourself is essential. Follow my Instagram be_inspired_by_ebony for daily posts. I may not post up here everyday but I’m always on IG with quotes and life skills.
Continuing on with self care month. I’m working on creating a budget and spending within my means. I have noticed that my spending is getting way out of control. I used the Mint App to really help me understand my spending. For this month I have sat down and planned all my bills in my planner. With the holiday season upon I us I want to be extra careful of my spending now to make sure I get gifts for my familia.
My top points on budgeting is as follows:
2.One thing that helps me is when I get paid I try to write down everything that needs to get paid so I know how much I have left to spend on things I need. I also have a savings account set up where it automatically takes out funds as well. Right now it’s $20 every week (judge free zone guys cuz it is way better than what I was putting before, which was nothing.) Ex:
3. Next thing I try to do is watch what I’m spending my money on. I have to ask myself “Ebony do you need this?”Or “is this worth the price?” Personally I’m a sucker for hair care products and shoes. I have to remind myself that if I don’t need it, I shouldn’t get it.
Some facts to consider:
- 69% of American have less than $1,000 in savings.
- 34% have no savings.
- Milleninals are spending more than they make (living above there means).
- 74% of milleninals have less than $1,000 in there savings.
- 31% have zero.
- Ideally you would want six months worth of living expenses saved up.

My goal is to be mindful of my spending and to have money for a rainy day. If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to save please comment and let me know. I would love to hear.
A budget is telling your money where to go, instead of wondering where it went.
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.
“Make yourself a priority once in awhile. It’s not selfish. It’s necessary.”
I hope this quote inspires you today. I hope it reminds you that you have been through hell but your still standing. I hope your day is full but nothing but amazing things. Have a wonderful day.
