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 😘,

Be Positive  

Morning 💜 

Happy Thursday. 

Today I want you to say something positive about yourself. I noticed that I am a very negative person when it comes to myself. I never uplift myself. 

So today uplift yourself. Say something positive. For me it will be that I am persistent. I never give up even when I want to. 

You can write it on a post it to remind yourself that your amazing when you feel like your not. 

Comment and let me know what your positives are. I would love to read them. 

Xoxo, 

Ebony 💜 
ps,

Be positive💜

Be Selfish! 

Good Morning loves. Hope my post finds you doing amazingly well. If not I hope my post cheers you up.   

I will be twenty seven this up coming October. Twenty freaking seven. One thing that stuck out to me was that I still had a lot of time to BE SELFISH!!!!!! 

Lately I just felt like I don’t give myself enough time for me. If I’m not working I’m being pulled in this direction to that direction. I came to realize that it’s okay to say no I just want this time for me. To grow. To explore.  It’s okay to do just that. You know why? Because it’s your life to do with it as you please. 

It’s okay to be selfish with your time because it’s all about bettering you and doing things you have never done. 

Do something amazing with your time. Do something  you have never done but always wanted to. Explore new places. Meet new people. Dabble in this and that or don’t. It’s all up to you. 

I recently saw this clip on fb and it was from divorce court. It stood out to me because a lot of us put up with way to much shit from our signicant others. I felt it tied in to what I was saying. Watch the clip and “Fire any dude who don’t act right”

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

ps, 

I hope you dance💜
