 Freedom Ain't Free

Freedom Ain't Free

Hey my boo!

I missed y'all!!

I know y'all looking at me thinking:

I know I know! it's been a minute and I'm sorry, but I promise that I'm going to get it together and be more consistent.

If I'm being honest though, I just haven't been feeling inspired to write. Mainly because I've allowed the craziness of what's going on around me to stifle my creative juices.

  Some days I just want to go in! I want to spill all the tea! I want to name names, tag they momma's, and send the link to their aunties and cousins.

Other days, its just enough to get through the day so I can come home and pass out because I'm exhausted.

I know what you might be thinking:

Girl! Didn't we already go through this? I thought you got this stress thing together already? What is the problem??? 

I hear you.

I feel you. 

This is the thing though...

There is no handbook that covers every particular part to this thing called life. Sometimes it's hard to navigate your family, job, church, love life, and self awareness all while being an black, a woman, and the nerve to be opinionated. 

Lately it's felt like as soon as I get a firm handle on one part, something else pops up and I'm scrambling to fix that too.

In this season, it's always something.

What's been getting me through this though is 'this season.' 

I know it won't always be like this, I won't always feel this way, and I wasn't brought here to be left here. While I'm here though, I might as well get what I need so I can become who I need to become.

I'm doing my best to stay intentional about the way I seek God and make sure I don't miss anything because I DO NOT want to have to go through this again.

So this is just to encourage someone. If you're going through a particularly hard time right now, you're not alone.

I feel you boo!

The best thing to do is protect your joy, be intentional, and keep a positive perspective. I can't front, most days, it's easier said than done, but I know for a fact that the only reason I haven't fully flipped my wig was because of those three things. 

I know it's cliche, but keep holding on. Soon enough, you'll be in the other side and not only will you have survived it, but now you have the testimony that could be the key to someone else freedom.

Keep holding on because like Queen Bey says:
