Sunday Funday: Words From Strangers

I’ve had a rough past couple of weeks. My phone broke, I lost my wallet, almost got fired from my job, attempted to quit my job, and did I mention I still don’t have a phone. It’s been tough trying to maintain stay positive. So tough that I haven’t blogged much and honestly don’t remember the last time I did a Sunday Funday. However I’ve read so many beautiful post this week and received so many kind words of encouragement I felt I should share them with those of you that might be having a tough time.

Every last one of the statements below were told to me by stranger in a Facebook group I’m a member of. Needless to say it is beautiful to be told such kind words of encouragement by strangers.

Sunday Funday: Positive Thoughts Bring Positive Outcomes


(Basically I completely forgot about this picture and will now use both of them)

Happy Sunday it is the end of the weekend and the start of the week. Everyone is either doing homework, preparing for the work week, bonding with their families and etc. As for me I am preparing for a night of exploration through my neighborhood. I’ve only been here for a month now so I love exploring the neighborhood and finding new things to fall in love with. So basically I go on 2 hour walks often with my brother and his friends. Sometimes I go without him though and when I do I like to recap about the all the positive events and etc. that are going on in my life right now.

Motivational Mondays: The Walk of Shame

Melting Phones” by Stefano Corso is licensed under CC BY 2.0

The walk of shame: an instance of walking back home on the day after an unplanned casual sexual encounter, typically dressed in the same clothes as the previous evening. (Google definition)

As a society we place social restrictions on what we feel a woman or man is allowed to do. Sexual, political, athletic, artistic just to name a few. This stems from a patriarchal mindset that has been instilled upon the western world for years. The question is…when does it end?

Challenge Accepted:Feeling Beautiful

It took me 21 years to realize how beautiful I truly am. I used to perm my hair, flat-iron my hair daily, wear big baggy clothes, and anything else I could do to hide what I looked like (caked on make-up became a regular thing). I was so self conscious that I couldn’t even begin to imagine why someone would even be interested in dating me. Needless to say my self-esteem was extremely low. Since my senior year of high school it has slowly improved and now at 21 I finally see how beautiful I am and how beautiful all women are!

So where am I going with this? Well I was challenged recently by Emma over at It’s Emma Elise to post 5  pictures of myself that make me feel beautiful!

The road to self-discovery is paved with good intentions?

It’s Tuesday! I hope your Monday was productive and full of pleasant surprises. Since I just graduated college last month I moved back home hopefully until September 1st when I’ll be moving to L.A. to peruse a career.  I took a day off yesterday from career searching, researching, and blogging (a surprisingly unexpected break) and focused on enjoying life. I spent the day with my niece watching Goosebumps, cooking, and baking. We made some pretty fun galaxy cookies (multi-colored swirl cookies shaped like stars). That was probably the best part of my summer so far (and it’s only June)!
