The Fountain of Youth

Because sometimes I think I'm too young for "crow's feet" 🤔🤔but then I remember that  I have a 4 year old && I usually look tired because  I stay up late trying to work on my personal/professional goals ((or occasionally catch up on a show that I can't watch when @just.jamelw is awake)). 😊😊😊 31 with "crow's feet" is just fine with me. I'm completely okay with having it show that I could use a nap after I've spent the whole day living it up. This set comes from an impromptu roadtrip to soak up some rays while cleansing in the sea. My spirit was in need of a trip to the water. 😏😏😏 I can rest tomorrow!!! #livingmybestlife #crowsfeet #improturoadtrips #HiltonheadIsland #nofilter

Growth Management

Because one of the hardest things I've ever experienced is the healthy relationship after the toxic one.

In a perfect world, there wouldn't be a toxic relationship.....but in the one I exist in, there's been many. Soo many terrible relationships to taint my view. 🤔🤔🤔 All in all, I wouldn't change a thing for the world. I wouldn't change the butterflies or the faux love or the expectations or the broken promises because that woke me up.

When I met the man who inspired me to continue to bring forth the peace within, I had to take a hard look at myself. I had to see who I really was, flaws and all. I had to explore strengths and weaknesses I didn't even know I had. I found a beauty in me that I couldn't see until I laid eyes on this man. The healthy relationship comes with introspection and a mirror that will pick you apart faster than some women can pick apart their bodies. But it also comes with an abundance of love, calm, and relief, even on the difficult days. It comes with understanding and communication. And disagreements. And growth. And reality, LOADS of reality that ends with a fairytale because once you find a healthy balance that promotes growth for both, you've found PERFECTION!!! #blacklove #blackcouplesmatter #blackcouples #blacklovematters

Vacations....

So my baby boy is on a trip and every break I get is considered a vacation in my eyes.....Of course I don't give my self the whole break that I should. I relax. I sleep. I eat well. Shower good. Do my hair. Take care of me. Rest my brain and my body......but I still think on some things.

I think about the future. The moments when he'll be taller than me. When he won't be my little man anymore. He'll have friends, more than he does now. He'll have a phone. A car. Places to go. People to see. A girlfriend. A wife. A house. A life. Health. Happiness. Prosperity. Everything I want for him.

Those are mostly happy thoughts for me. It's slightly sad when I remember he'll never be my baby again. Never fit in my lap again. Or my arms. Or my belly. But I appreciate it all the same.

These thoughts lead me to appreciate the parent I am able to be just that much more. It also makes me appreciate the parents whose children need extra care, love, and attention. Who lose sleep plenty of nights worry for their children, taking care of their children, working for their children. Parents are real life superheros. Your children definitely see your superpowers. I'm grateful for you all to be in this world. I'm grateful for this moment of reflection so close to father's day. Have a safe, happy weekend everyone!!❤🥰
