Happy Monday dolls! Welcome back to the blog boos! Today, I want to chat about something pretty personal that's been weighing on me heavy for some time now. You want to know the REAL reason I stopped blogging? In all honesty, it's because I got FAT! I feel like I've sugar coated it in posts and make a joke about it in passing. My way of deflecting or hiding my own insecurity. If I make a joke about it or act like it hasn't happened you won't notice this size 16 frame. Hmmmm yeah ok, girl.
Here are some pictures I took this weekend and although I felt good in this look and better than I had in months being out in public, when I checked this pics I wanted to crawl back into my sweats and hide. Normally, I would take these pics and NEVER post them on my social media and quietly untag myself if friends posted them on theirs but enough with that! Something has got to give and I CAN NOT hide forever. I just celebrated a birthday last week and life is just too damn short to not LIVE yo life! So in honor of my new commitment to just LIVE, Naja, I'm posting the pics and keeping all the tags!
If we've learned nothing else this week with the passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, depression and mental health is so so important to keep in check. I have found myself fighting this battle quite a bit in recent years and it's something that you must FIGHT against every day. It's not easy and anyone who says that it is, is a WHOLE LIE! You have to combat the negative thoughts with positive affirmations, surround yourself with good people, avoid the darkness at all costs and chase your light (joy) relentlessly. It's a battle doll, but YOU are worth it!
Until next post, stay encouraged and stay beautiful!
