Life has been happening y’all! I know I haven’t given the type of time and energy that I should into blogging and I’m sad about it. I realize there’s no need to beat myself up about it, but I also know nothing changes if nothing changes.
I have been working harder at making connections to help with enhancing my content and really figuring out what I want to do with my blog. I’ve literally second guessed almost every idea that I’ve come up with because of what I think others will think! That’s productive, right?! 🤦🏾♀️ That’s mental prison and I’ve got do do better!!!!!
The Curvy Vegetarian was originally supposed to be about showing others that you don’t have to be skinny, non Black, vegetarian for religious reasons or purposes, or because it’s a fad. What I didn’t know is that I hadn’t fully believed all of those things myself but wanted to send that message to others! Can’t confidently build a brand or a following like that!
I also didn’t realize that I had some trauma that I needed to take some time to look within and heal from. I am learning that it’s okay to be unapologetic in my truth, take no crap from others, walk away from things that no longer serve my purpose, and own all of these curves. I’m fearfully and wonderfully made in His image, and so are you. Self love really is the best love! I now know that loss doesn’t mean I am unworthy, but I need to cherish the memories and lessons learned from what/who is no longer present.
I said all that to say this, as much as this blog is supposed to be for you, I realized it is just as much if not more for me. I’m going to commit myself to posting more consistently and working hard to share things that will help me as well as others. A good friend told me earlier this week, “if you only reach one person, they needed what you shared.” This was my confirmation. God has given me a voice and an opportunity to share, I’m going to take it.
Love y’all bunches! 💚
