The Day I Made the Decision to be A Bad Bitch.

The day that I decided that I was a bad bitch was the best day of my life and ultimately the best decision that I have ever made. Now, I don’t really care to get into the politics or the history of the term ‘bad bitch’ and how it is “offensive” and blah blah blah….

CLEANSE YOUR SPIRIT.

Wow! It’s amazing what 40 days away from everything can do for you. I feel like I have gained so much insight on myself and life in general. It’s kinda crazy how pain can push you to where you need to be. I needed to go on this spiritual fast/cleanse. And I honestly don’t think…

Invest in Yourself.

So today I finally recieved my camera lens and I am beyond excited! It’s the little things like this that make me feel like my goals are slowly but surely coming into fruition. Along with the investment of my new camera lens, I have also put forth some effort for my logo ( Elinah in…

Maybe I’m Not So Perfect

Reaffirmations. Learning about yourself and finding yourself is a lifelong journey. With that being said, I don’t know why on earth I really thought that in a mere 21 days that I would just magically rediscover myself. Especially without tearing back layers upon layers upon layers of lies and bullshit that I covered myself in…

What I Learned from my 21 Days Without Social Media……..

Recently, I took a 21 day fast from social media which basically meant that I was going to limit my online exposure as well as not posting as frequently on my social media sites. To say I was completely off of social media during this time is a bit fabricated, albeit, I did cease my urge…

Get It Together, Girl.

Lately, I have been feeling down about quite a different things in my life. School, work, and just a whole bunch of other random, personal things. Most of my life I’ve always managed to end up in friendships where the girls that I was connected to had ZERO

STOP APOLOGIZING!

The last prompt that I will be partaking in for the series of #30Days30Layers, is Day 17: Stop Apologizing. There’s quite a few things that I feel compelled to stop apologizing for, however, I am going to abstain from going on a prolonged tangent and limit my answer to one thing.

SAPIOSEXUAL & SOULMATES

I have decided to combine these two journal entries (Day 7: Sapiosexual + Day 11: Soulmate) because they both seem to correlate with one another for me in the terms of relationships and love. When thinking of my soulmate/potential partner, I came up with a list of attributes that usually draw me to a person: creativity,…

I WANT TO BE

I want to be a voice for the underdogs. The underdogs; those little people in the world who are painted with this lie of inadequacy. The underdog; the little dark skin girls who are being told that they’re “not pretty enough” or good enough because they’re of a deeper complexion. The underdog; the person who…

I AM…

So after much delay and procrastination, I am FINALLY getting around to do doing the #30Layers30Days Self – Discovery Challenge [found here: All The Many Layers]. This challenge is a long time coming but better late than never lol. I will not be doing all thirty of the days but the ones that I have…

2014: Year of Reflection

As this year winds down and I reflect on all that’s happened up until this point, I feel pretty excited for 2015. I have learned so much about myself this year and I have experienced a lot of amazing (and not so amazing) moments in my life. I’ve never been a big believer or promoter…
