A lady is TIREDDD!! With two extra D;s..lol. What can i say.. the show was epic.. we had models from all over the south NC, Arkansas, Cocoa Beach and more!. There were so many beautiful, confident women in the show. I was so happy to see women of all shapes and sizes hit the runway. What really took the cake was the talented designers that were in the building. Exotic Elegance owner/designer Rhonda Gray amazed me with the extravagant ensembles. Over all it was a great turn out. The house was packed, the vendors were on point.. and the message conveyed… BIG Girls Do It Better..lol
(PS.. that’s me on the Runway)
Geez. I feel like dancing!! Tomorrow will be my first time back on the runway in seven years. i’M NERVOUS and a bit excited. I love being in front of the camera, but I’m scared i might fall. Did i mention I’m a plus size model.. yeah.. (in my head i just said. “Go big girl what chu gone do!”)
Wish me luck!
Melt down in 3…2…1..
Geez.. its easy to get overwhelmed with the wilds of life. The necessary hustle and bustle can weigh us down going into the holidays. This week i was encouraged by a professional to take a step back and just evaluate my life. Find out who belongs, and who needs to leave. What needs to thrown away, and what should stay. When speaking with someone who has an unbiased opinion of your life, you began to see this that were already there, but no one wants to address. I encourage to seek help when you feel overwhelmed, or just to situate some of your feeling.
Three things that can help relieve stress:
Get 7-8 hours of sleep a day:
Eat a well-balanced breakfast and healthy meals:
Exercise 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes:
If you begin to do these three things, you will see that you awake less groggy, irritable and ready for the day.
At anytime if you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to turn contact your local Crisis center or check out the website below:
You may also call our 24-hour Crisis Lines at 775-784-8090 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 to speak immediately with a crisis interventionist.
Life… what is it? What isn’t it? Why come? (my kids voice) I question sometimes.. What is the point of it all? Is life just a bunch of memories? When does living begin? What is happiness? What is LOVE? so many question.. but no definite answers.. maybe it’s not meant to be defined.. .. just lived…
No matter what we come up against, we serve a power more higher than anything/one else.. We shall fear no man nor actions towards us. As I go forth, equip me with what I need to have and say. Bridle my tongue, and you speak for me.
I pray your will be done. Amen
In this world of give and take.. whats the point of it all? You go to work to provide for your family, you come home to spend time with your family, anticipating the weekend. The weekend comes, you get up and have no idea what to do that day.
You wake up on Saturday..After finally getting 4 kids dressed and ready to go.. It’s already 2 o’clock..
Sunday rolls in and it’s “get ready for Monday’ day..
In between time…
you get lost..
I need to find me!!!..
How do one find themself? How do we not become complacent with life and all the things around us?
.. thats all i have for now…
It’s a new day, new opportunities, and renewed blessings. I woke up this morning in a state of peace, because I went to sleep with my new business plan on my mind. Then all that was shattered when i received a call at 6:47 am with my mom telling me that my daughter walked out the house with one shoe on.. Who in the heck does that?.. welp apparently my daughter does. It makes me think.. you can be so in a hurry to get to where you are going, you leave something behind..
That could be a good or a bad thing.. In the glass half empty way of thinking.. it can be perceived as ” oh I left something I really needed, I am going to turn around and go get this old shoe. (insert meaningful thing in life) Or you can look at it as the glass half full approach. I know I left that shoe, but I need to continue going forward.. the ground may hurt my feet just a little, but if I keep on walking towards where I want to be it may just be a better pair waiting for me.
Now, i’m not telling you to walk around without a shoe.. because you may just end up in a padded wagon..lol. but look at it metaphorically. We have been holding one to thing we think we need for so long. Maybe its time to leave it behind.. there may be something down the road that fits better.
