Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month


I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are making me irritable, weepy, angry. I made a rash decision to close up shop for 9 long weeks while I get myself together, and put the final touches on my little life after dirty thirty. I can't stay away. I've been updating my Facebook Page and everything. I'm slowly finding my niche, and I'm drawing closer and closer to living it out.

I wouldn't be doing something right if I didn't have haters. I wouldn't be on the right path if I didn't have ups and downs. I wouldn't be finding myself if I didn't feel elated some days and depressed the next days. It's life. It's my life. I'm not ashamed of my life, my struggle, or my triumphs. It's everything that makes me Jae. I'm not afraid to live my truths, and you shouldn't be either. Never let someone make you feel inferior to their insecurities. There will always be someone trying to out your light, but you keep on shining bright despite of them!

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
