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.

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 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.

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

Forgiveness 

Morning💜, 

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. 

XoXo, 

E

ps, 

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?

What Is It Like To Be You? 

Morning!

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

Happy December!!


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.

Friday’s Inspiration

I’m one of those people that always compare my life to someone’s else. I do it all the time. Especially now that I will be turning 27 on Tuesday so I’m comparing my life to others around me. 

I have to constantly remind myself that God has a plan for my life.  It may not be what I want but it’s what he wants. 
To anyone struggling with this. Take it one day out a time. Don’t compare your life to others. Know that God has something amazing instore for your life. 

XoXo,

Ebony Monae
