Body Positive Monday

Morningggggg lovesss,

So yesterday evening I posted a post that was very raw to me. I hope you read it. If not it’s going to be right before this one. Today’s quote is:

Love your body. I have big ass boobs and a flat butt but you know what I’m going to love me anyway. I also have stretch marks galore. But I’m going to love how God made me. I know it’s hard. Trust me it’s freaking hard. But love it anyway. It’s time we learn to love us for US.

Love you guys and I hope my quote helps you💕

XoXo 😘

-E

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 😘,

Trust Him

Morning Loves,

This morning my heart is still heavy. As mentioned yesterday my friend lost her son. I’m still coming to terms with it myself. In moments like this you want to be supportive and be there for your friends. I still don’t know what to say that will make it okay. That will ease her pain. In times like this I’m learning to trust my on my own faith.

For anyone that’s going through anything. Trust on your faith.

Know that God will get you through it. Sometimes it’s hard to hear that but know God is there. When I feel like my back is to the wall I always say “God won’t give me more than I can handle.” I repeat it all the time and that simple phrase gets me through it. I feel empowered because he knows what I can handle.

Keeping the Faith,

EM💜

ps,

Baby girl I love you more than you know. No words can heal your heart right now but know I am here always.

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💜

Face Your True North

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

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💜

I’m Giving You Life Today

Good morning. If you read my previous post(if you didn’t what are you waiting for go read it!) then you will understand my theme for this week is #self-care.

The quote embodies all that I been feeling lately. My post to you today is take that leap. When I’m about to step out of my comfort zone, my heart starts to beat really fast. I know it’s my nerves, but I take that as an opportunity to go forward. It’s my universal sign to do take that leap of faith.

So do that. Write down something that makes your heart beat fast. Follow your passion. Don’t forget about yourself. Don’t forget about what you want out of this life.

Xoxo,

EM💜

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.
