Look after yourself Friday

We have today. So there’s that!

If someone had told me a week ago that I would feel this good, I would have said, “The hell you say.”

When I think back at how depressed I was two weeks ago, I’m shocked; I’m shooketh. When I looked in the mirror, I didn’t recognize myself. All I saw was a hurt reflection staring back at me. That is until I decided to step up. Being sad and moping around will only keep you down. And at that moment, you’ll know who truly loves you and has your back.

Those people will help nurse you back to health and make you right again. I am so thankful for my tribe, including all of you. Y’all helped put me back together again. I was allowed to be open and become vulnerable without judgment. And for that, I thank you.

Push away the bad shit and Breathe in the good shit

For the last two weeks, I’ve been in search of finding my happy. To my surprise, I didn’t need to find it because it was always right there in front of me; I just couldn’t see it. I allowed negative energy to disrupt my character and sabotage my happy. But I chose to push that negative shit away and grab the good shit.

Now I’m on the right shit!

The key to looking after yourself

I have found a way to walk away from situations that drain me. I used to sit there and allow people to take, take, take and leave me empty. NO MORE. I now know that I need to refill… you can’t pour from an empty cup. Nor should you pour into a cup that will leave your cup EMPTY.

I’m no longer looking for anyone to make me happy or understand my happiness. You should not have to explain your hurt to anyone that loves you. Especially when you feel the love from folks, you have known for a short while (10 years and under).

You can’t change how someone sees you or how they think of you. But you can change how you react to their foolishness. Find your peace by ignoring the bull that comes with their mess.

Lastly, stop looking for approval. Instead, feel how you need to feel; take as long as you need to get your happiness back. Prayer and meditation will get you to where you desire to be.

Enjoy your Friday, and be good to you!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  2. Thanks very beautiful and inspiring we all go thru things and we never know I’ve learned that it not about the problem it’s how we deal with the problem hurt pain and disappointment are going to be apart of life and mistakes are bound to happen but how we deal with it and what we take from it is the key

    1. That’s right Jay! Life is hard on the best of days and mistakes happen, that’s okay. We can’t let those mistakes knock us out. We’re all in this together and never alone! You doing good this Saturday?

  3. “You can’t change how someone sees you or how they think of you.”
    That part right there! You have no idea how much that hits for me too right now. I’m somehow managing to handle it well, and that’s a blessing, but it’s still crap to deal with.
    I am so glad to hear that you are doing so well. I have had a few days the past few weeks and it’s awful.
    Here’s to strong women who refuse to give up! You are an inspiration 🤗💚

    1. You are not alone!! I hope you fight with all you have to get rid of anything and anyone that doesn’t serve you.
      I tried for years to get certain people to think well of me and then I said “I don’t like none of y’all anyway so why do I care what you think”!
      Keep being fantastic 🤍🤍🤍🤍
