Your Job Don't Need To Get All of You

Your Job Don't Need To Get All of You

In my post, I'M FULL TIME EVERYTHING | THE BALANCING ACT, I talk about my struggle with the balancing act of being a Full Time Millennial Wife balancing my career, my brands, my social life and more. The thing that threw me off balance the most was my job.

When I really evaluated the impact that my job had on my happiness, my availability, my marriage, my social life, my energy, and my ability to do the things that make me happy…I knew right then that I was giving way too much of myself to my job. Your job don’t need to get all of you!

Fibroid Follow Up: The Next Steps

Fibroid Follow Up: The Next Steps

Let’s start with the good news. I found a doctor that actually educated me, that I feel comfortable with, that can become my official OBGYN, that can perform a minimally invasive surgery, and that can deliver my future baby (which is honestly the only reason this whole situation is an emotional situation). She actually specializes in fibroids and I literally cried tears of joy during my visit with her. That is until we start talking MONEY.

Getting Married and Losing Friends: I Said Yes, She Said Bye Girl

 Getting Married and Losing Friends: I Said Yes, She Said Bye Girl

It's like you go on trial with your friendships when you get married. You're being judged, being convicted, and having to defend yourself with your friends. It's like You vs. Your Married Self. You know that your innocent of being the same person, but everyone else sees you as being guilty of changing who you are. I mean are they the problem or you the problem? You have no control over how someone else sees you, especially if they don't even think enough of you to communicate. Of course it hurts losing a friend especially while transitioning into being someone's wife.

What can I say? It's hard out here for a wifey!

What The F: Let's Talk About Fibroids!

What The F: Let's Talk About Fibroids!

So I've HEARD of fibroids, but honestly until two weeks ago I shied away from the topic. My mom, aunts, grandma, and a few of my friends have had them and went through the surgery. At the time they brought it up, I didn't know enough about fibroids to care or to realize just how prominent they are in the African American community until NOW. Ain't that something?

DALLAS QUEENS IN BLOOM: Champagnes and Flower Crown Workshop Event Recap

DALLAS QUEENS IN BLOOM: Champagnes and Flower Crown Workshop Event Recap

May has been all about embracing the Queen within you. I often feel like we as women don't give ourselves enough credit nor do we give other queens credit. I wanted to have a meetup with queens where we could be uplifting to one another and crown ourselves because the world doesn't give us much opportunity to do so.

Suffering in Silence: Finding Your Voice in Your Relationship

Suffering in Silence: Finding Your Voice in Your Relationship

Now if you know me, you know that I’ve ALWAYS been outspoken and that I tell you exactly how it is if you ask me my opinion on something. So imagine my surprise when I lost my voice and opinion once I decided to seriously date my boyfriend. As I reflect now, I blame it on knowing the power of my tongue and the importance of being “slow to speak”. I didn’t want to say the wrong thing, so I would ponder on how to say what I wanted to say and hide the honesty of how I truly felt about some things. Who wants to be a nag?

Peer Pressure: Stay In Your Own Lane

Peer Pressure: Stay In Your Own Lane

I often spread myself thin by agreeing to do everything to the point I don’t want to do anything. Spreading yourself thin to the point that you are not even giving the full extent of what you can do.

Confession: My opinion about what I should be doing is influenced by what I see on social media and the people around me to the point I can’t even focus on the assignment that God has given me.
