The Aftermath

Afternoon loves,

Yesterday I didn’t get a chance to blog because I was at the funeral with my friends. When I tell you it was the hardest day in my life, I’m not joking. When my friends cried over there son it broke my heart because you could feel there pain. I never want to hear or witness pain like that in my life.

All week I was racked with quilt because I felt like I couldn’t help her. As I sit and type this it finally hit home that I can help her. I can be there for them while they grieve there son. I found a great quote that I feel helps with grief.

It’s going to be a while before they start the healing process. I want you to know. I will sit there and hold you while you cry. What your both going through has to be the most painful thing in the world. Know your not alone.

When your ready to start the healing process I will be there too. For a long time I struggled with the things that happened to me. I didn’t understand it. Why did God pick me. I am now coming to the realization that God picked me because he has a purpose for my pain. He has a purpose for me and I believe that is to help others. Guide others.

We go through some of the darkest days of our lives. During the storm we don’t see the light but we do come through it. And we are stronger than before. I know your in your storm right now but know that God has a purpose for your pain.

Anyone that’s reading this. The same applies to you. Trust in him. Trust his purpose for your life.

Inspiring Others💜

Morning loves,

Today I am a little bit more upbeat, than I have been these last few days.

Sometimes I meet people who think that there lives won’t ever inspire others. Hell even I think that but we forget that whatever we are going through can help someone. That roadblock you were on and got through, can inspire someone to get through there’s. That new job you were scared to go after but Finally Did. Can inspire someone to follow there dreams. That bad breakup you got over when you didn’t think you could but DID. Can inspire someone else.

So don’t think your story can’t inspire others because it can and to myself baby girl your story can inspire the masses to so don’t you forget that. (Sometimes in need that pep talk too💜)

Inspiring Others 💜,

Sorrow

Morning loves,

Yesterday I received some devastating news my good friend son passed away. He was going to be two this month. I wish I knew what to say. I’m usually the person that always has something to say but this morning my mind is coming up blank.

Have you guys experienced anything like this? If so what should I do? What should I say?

Advice is much needed. Thank You💜

Morning,

Cheers to having a blessed and prosperous Monday.

It took me a while to understand that I AM NOT FOR EVERYONE. This message really spoke to me. Reminded me that everyone won’t like and that’s okay. Everyone won’t love you and that’s okay too. What’s not okay is keeping them around. So here’s the message :

Did you read it?!? I know it’s a little long BUT how I loved it. I mentioned in a previous post that I went back to someone who I know didn’t love me but I loved them. Well this explains don’t do it. Continue on a path of purpose and fulfillment.

You are not for them and they are not for you!

How I loved that sentence. Don’t waste your time on someone who YOU know is not worth even an ounce of you. Keep on in the right direction.

I hope this message helps you in ways it did me.

XoXo,

E

Medating

Morning Loves. Rise and shine!!!

Last Friday with my therapist she helped me mediate. Let me tell you it was so calming and relaxing. Now I have tried to mediate in the past but it did not work but with the help of my therapist it was amazing.

Everything was relaxed. The reason why I started to mediate was because I suffer from depression and I am really scared about taking medication. I come from a family of drug addicts and it scares me to get hooked on any type of drug. So I want to find more natural ways of helping with my depression rather than taking medications. Mediation is really good for the body and it helps me with my anxiety.

There are different ways to mediate. Do some research and find what works best for you. As for me. I don’t need music. The lights have to be dimmed down low. I have to guide myself into it with deep breaths starting wth my feet and working my way up to my head. This relaxes each part of my body.I also say breath in love and acceptance and breath out pain and anger. I stay in a relaxed state for about 5-10mins.

Give mediation a try. Relax your mind and body.

Ébony

ps,

Buddha was asked what have you gained from mediation? 

He replied “Nothing! However let me tell you what I have lost. Anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death.”

It’s Valentines Day Peeps 

This post is for the people that have a good girl and guy but treat them like shit. I’m going to give you some heartfelt advice. If you know your not doing right by then LEAVE THEM ALONE!! 

I’m tired of seeing good people getting there hearts broken by no good people. 

People like that are just plain ol’selfish to me. You know that your not in a good head place to date someone but you still want to. That to me is SELFISH!!

If you know want to play the field still don’t get into a relationship. If you know you don’t have the heart to love someone other than yourself don’t get into a relationship. If you know your a gold digger don’t get into a relationship. If you know your not in love with them walk away nothing hurts more than false hopes. 

Let those good people go find someone that can truly love them and treat them the way they should be treated because you know they deserve it. Be the bigger person and walk away before you destroy them and the next person has to pay for your mistakes. 

To the true lovers of the world I wish you nothing but bliss. Have a wonderful love filled day. To the selfish lovers of the world have a heart and let them GO!!!

XoXo,

E

I’m Scared! 

I don’t even know where to begin with this post so I’m just going to start. 

When I was 25 I was diagnosed with AVNRT which is Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry Tachycardia. Which basically means I was born with an extra piece of tissue in my heart and sometimes the electricity in my heart hits it and throws off the heartbeat which causes me to have palpitations, chest pain, tightening of chess and etc. 

When I heard that at 25 I was just like this is can’t be real. I have been healthy my whole life. I first had those symptoms in early November  of 2014 I ended up going to the hospital and they found something totally different. Now that I think about it this diagnosis saved my life. By the time I got to the hospital the symptoms where gone but they found I had a pulmonary embolism on my lung which is a blood clot.    

They ended up treating me for that but two weeks later I’m right back in the ER for the AVNRT. It was pretty scary ordeal. I had people everywhich way. I felt like I was on an epeisode of ER. That was the night they diagnosed me.

 For the past three years I have been dealing with this. It’s been pretty damn scary. Most people might think I’m complaining because other people are way more sicker than me. Which I get but in that moment in my life I was scared. I didn’t know if my heart was going to go out, have a heart attack, or my blood clots came back. I was plain ol’ scared out of my mind. You know what I didn’t tell anybody just kind of put it out of my mind type of thing. When the symptoms came I knew how to stop them until last week. Because now my fear is back. 

Last week I couldn’t stop them those symptoms came back x10. I felt like I was having a heart attack (never had a heart attack) but sure felt like I was dying. 

Now I have to do a procedure where they have to basically cut off that piece of  tissue. It’s an in and out procedure but I’m freaking scared. Anything can go wrong. There’s a possibility they may not find it or a possibility it can be something else entirely. 

I still don’t know why I am writing this post. I guess just to put my fears to blog (hahaha can’t say paper).  I can say I feel better about the whole dang on thing. Still pretty scared but I feel better got my thoughts out. 

Xoxo,

E

It’s Okay to Walk Away 

Morning sunshines. 

Happy Tuesday!! 

Have a positive day. 
It’s no shame in walking away. You did this for yourself. Don’t let anyone let you feel bad about your choice to walk away. Be proud of yourself. No one deserves to stay in a relationship of any kind where they are unhappy. Stand strong in your decision and for once choose yourself💜

Love,

E
ps,

Remember lifes to short to be unhappy.
