  So the other night I was scrolling down my Instagram feed when I saw a picture of Beyonce and what some are calling her 'new style'. I personally think she looks cute and way less toned down. If you know me then you know that for years I have felt that Beyonce is Take It or Leave It. I like some of her music (Countdown) and on some of it I think she yells too damn much (Ring the Alarm). At times she seems sweet and very down to earth while at others I find  her to be almost Stepford Wife like . Either way - I'm not a stan but I'm def not a Beyonce hater. However, my feelings towards her have nothing to do with this post so ... yeah.

     Anyway, a fellow follower commented something along the lines of "Stop trying to change your image, we love you just the way you are" (I scrolled and scrolled but could not relocated the direct quote. Had I known it would be a blog post topic, I would've screen shot it right then. WELP.)
     Now, I don't if Beyonce is in fact trying to change here image (peep the pic above) or not but this comment got me to wondering. So fucking what if she is? This woman has been in the public eye for most of her life and all of her adult life! It is highly possible that if there is a change, maybe this is who she really is and she doesn't care what others think anymore. Or maybe - just maybe; getting married and becoming a mother has changed her. Why do fans think they have a right to dictate celebrities lives and why do people feel that if you make a change you are trying to be  'brand new'?

     Even if you are trying to be 'brand new' what's the harm in that? When a person changes that first day of change is most likely a complete turn around from the person they were the day before. And in my opinion there is no harm in that?

What's your opinion. Why do people feel like it's so wrong for celebrities or even people like me and you to change?

10 Things That Make Me Happy

In an effort to write more and post more on my blog (once again) I am going to start sharing writing prompts on my Facebook page. I'm sharing them with my friends because I truly believe in the calming power of writing and if I can encourage just one person to write then I've done my job. So here you have it' 10 Things That Make Me Happy: In No Particular Order 

Motherhood. Without out a single ounce of exaggeration, I live for my kids. I am consistently plagued with feelings of loathing and self doubt but I know that I brought these little people into the world and that I'm responsible for them. Because I feel that I have the responsibility to put on a brave face for so many other people no one will every fully understand the demons I fight on a regular basis. My children are my protectors. If it weren't for them I would have lost my battle to at least one a long time ago. 

Creating. Ya'll know I love to craft. My love for craft gives me a sense of accomplishmen…

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …

This week I started with meal replacement shakes. My will power was not strong! I was able to do the shakes 3 full days, meaning I had one for breakfast and one for lunch with a sensible dinner. I purchased both Slimfast and Atkins and have been having the Slimfast shakes for breakfast and the Atkins shakes for lunch. I would say that those are to credit for the 2 lb weight loss because I didn't all - just tried to move around more. This upcoming week I am going to do the meal replacements Monday -Thursday and see how many pounds I lose.

Even though the scale didn't move much I do have so…
