It’s been a rough couple of days for me.  However, looking back at these photos as I type this post is putting a smile on my face.  I’ve come such a long way from being the quiet girl that always worried about fitting in.  When I was in the first grade I moved to NC from NYC.  From that moment until the age of 28 I always felt out of place.  Never realizing that I wasn’t suppose to fit in.

It took me getting divorced and my entire life being thrown into a tail-spin for me to realize that.  At the time I believed I wasn’t good enough and I was washed up at 28, lol.  I know, I couldn’t see past my current situation.  However, you are what you believe.  Right now I believe I’m amazing and capable of doing amazing things.  Like being a speaker at the first Black Bloggers United Conference this June.

No matter how happy you are with yourself there will always be someone that thinks they know what’s better for you.  Last week, I had someone tell me I needed to change my attitude.  As if my sole purpose in life is to please them. I won’t tell you guys what my response was because in-real-life my mouth is vicious.  If we changed ourselves every time someone else saw fit we’d be exhausted!

I didn’t intend on this post being about self-confidence and empowerment.  I guess I was just letting the words flow.  Someone may have needed to read this today.  Especially, as others around you may be celebrating love and relationships.
