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 😘,

EM

New Month, New Mindset

Evening,

I hope my post finds you doing well and if not I hope my post uplifts your spirit.

It’s a new month to explore new things. To start a book you always wanted. To go to that hunted house your were to scared to go to before. Or something even simpler try that pumpkin spice latte you waited every fall to try but never had the time to. This month I want to encourage you to take time for yourself.

This month I’m blogging for one straight month for my October Series my hope is to reach someone who might need that uplifting word.

So here’s to the magic of new beginnings loves🌟🌟

Stay Blessed,

EM💜

Maktub

Morning Sunnies,

Today I want to talk about the Arabic word Maktub, which means “it is written”

Sometimes we stress over life. Stress over our circumstances and directions so much that we forget that god has written every aspect of our lives.

Everything that occurs is meant to be.

Understand that he is most high and everything that he has destined for your life is for a reason. Personally I am a little confused right now. Everything is happening so fast but I am learning to trust gods plan for me.

I hope my post reaches some part of you. Have a blessed and amazing day💜

xoxo,

E

Magnificent Transformation 💜

Morning Sunshines,

This quote is giving me all types of good vibes. I’m excited about the months ahead. I’m excited about about all the new beginnings I’m embarking on(more to come on a later date.)

Are you excited about what the next couple of months will bring? I hope you are. Previously this week we talked about focusing on you, speaking positivity into your life and letting shit go whether is people or feelings. I promise you if you do all of these things you will breathe much easier.

Now I’m encouraging you to open new doors for yourself. Start the groundwork for this transformation. Apply to that new job. Make that profile on a dating app. Step foot into a gym. Do what you feel you have to do for you to breathe easier.

I’m doing it right along with you. In the next few months I want to explore new things. Meet new people. Travel some. Really work on my business and books(ohh by the way I’m working on a new book so un click that link and tell me what you think🙃)

Blessing Upon Blessings,

EM💜

There Will Be Days 


Some days it’s going to pour. Some days it won’t. 

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.   

Always, 

E
