This Valentine’s Day is the 3rd Valentine Day that I won’t have a Valentine. I am not sad at all about it but I want to focus on being my own Valentine this year more so than ever. I ran into an associate the other day who always told me that I needed to lose weight and put on makeup……..
Associate: Kita, I think you would look better if you put on some makeup and lose some weight. And my gosh why don’t you wear heels you are so short you could stand to gain some height.
Me: And what’s wrong with you because only God is perfect
Associate: Huh what do you mean nothing is wrong with me I am the bomb
Me: Really, well that’s wonderful I am glad. I like me, how you think I look is not my concern
This convo took place back in 2012 I saw her earlier this year in the store and she had gained twice the amount of weight I had and she looked tired. She tried to avoid me when she saw me but I just love making my presence known
Me: Hey, how are you long time no see.
Associate: Oh hey girl yeah it’s been a long time. You still look the same
Me: and you look horrible now what was it you told me about losing weight again.
Conclusion ~ Yeah I said it and the look on her face was great. You see if you can dish it out make sure you can take it back because no one and I do mean no one is perfect. Although I may not be a size 2 like I use to be, although I may be dark, although I may not be the finest thing out there I still have a sense that although you may look good on the outside something may be wrong with the inside and it will show. This Valentine be your own Valentine. Take yourself out to dinner, take yourself out to the movie to see Black Panther, buy yourself some flowers, and take the day to focus on you. Even if you have a boo don’t depend on them to show you a good time show yourself a good time by focusing on loving who you are.
I want my kids to go to this school so bad but you have to compete with over 500+ kids for only 30 spots *cries*
I need to get on the ball with Valentine’s Day handouts for my daughters class my son said no thank you
My mom use to always tell me to cool a fever with a wet cloth. This helps out so much with that!
I personally like to use my 35mm for lifestyle photography. I love my nifty fifty too when I want to carry something lighter
If you have a small business or knows someone that does and they would like some extra exposure for free let me know. I would love to have them on my business blog
I bought one thing from this list because target is the devil
My kids love fortune cookies if I was of the crafty kind I would make this for my kids
They opened up a bath bomb store in my neighborhood. I am not a huge fan of them because they may or may not make my skin breakout but I love when you can make your own!
