Happy Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving Day is practically here my dear readers.  So much so I'm going to give myself a break to tend to this and that for this entire week.

For my international divas, you may be aware that every year, we in the United States celebrate Thanksgiving. It is usually the last thursday in November and this year it falls on November 27th. Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving too, however, their celebration happens much earlier than ours.  Do you celebrate where you are too?  Tell us about your tradition. I would love to hear what you and your family do!  For me we will have dinner at our oldest daughter's house this year.  I'm doing a mean Jamaican Jerk Pork dish, it will be spicy!

In the meantime, I will be taking a week-long break from posting any articles.  Have a fabulous time with your families and friends, and if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, do have a fantastic week just the same!!!  Our article re-posts will continue a week later in December. Don't forget to go searching this blog for reads that will make you laugh out loud, feel motivated or start sweating!!! Remember to go over to Fabulously Curvy for tips on what to wear on Thanksgiving!

Repost: Your Moniker, to share, or not to share

What's in a name?  A little meaning, a lot?  Maybe nothing at all?!  What about you my dear readers, who are you?  What do you do?  What do you love to do?  I find it interesting to learn about others.

Re-Post: Fitness Wednesdays: Making Fitness a Lifestyle ~ FOREVERSERENITY

It's hump day and here comes another re-post dear readers.  I love doing repost do you want to know why?  Because it gives me a chance to look back at articles I've written in the past, and some will need follow ups, especially if they are relevant for us today, as the one I am posting below is.

You and I have been on a quest to be healthier, fitter, have a better life, right?  Well, with the new year around the corner we will be surely looking at what we are doing again.  No, don't groan!!!! Let this be our reminder to begin to prep ourselves for what we will be doing.  Society is constantly looking at us, shaping our views of how we see ourselves.  Perhaps this is our time to take the link below to read how I'm trying to make fitness a lifestyle, and you can too!  Leave me a comment to let me know how you will be making changes, or what you plan on doing.

Operation Motivation: The Mask

This is a re-post.  I'll do another write up and post later to share with you why I'm doing re-posts for the rest of the year.  For now, please do take a look at the link below.  Let me know your thoughts after reading this.  Do you "wear a mask"?  Do you show one side of yourself to others to protect yourself?  Thanks for reading with me.

FOREVERSERENITY: The Mask: Go on LOL at this face! That face that we put on for sanity's sake. That face that we wear when we hide our true authentic self...

Repost: Me 'n My 'Fro: On Being Natural - How it began ~ Fabulously Curvy

When I began sharing photos of my hair and started my Me 'n My 'Fro tagline, it began here on my lifestyle blog. Then I switched it over to my fashion blog, Fabulously Curvy.  To continue with re-post week (which got hijacked & delayed by my attention being drawn elsewhere) as I mentioned to my curvy divas dear readers, and today I'm doing a "full circle" re-posting an article I wrote on fabulously curvy!

I wanted to share again with you dear readers, how my hair journey began.  I'm glad that my two daughters also are enjoying their natural hair journeys.  It's been a long road of acceptance and learning how to care for and wear our hair as is popularly referred to as "natural".

Visit the link at the end and "hear" how and why I began my natural hair journey!

Me with a curly twist out, my red is darker these days!

What does your dream mean?

Your dream, what you believe in
It's amazing when you love what you do.  Because when you love what you do even if no one else loves it, that doesn't matter.  It doesn't matter to you because it is your dream, your love, your baby.  It's every breath you take, every thought you think, you get butterflies in your stomach and you laugh out load to your self, giggling like a little girl whenever you think about it.

When you have this, when you know what this is, your dream; it. is. amazing!  So no matter what, even when the tough gets going, hang in there, get back to it. Don't stop. Keep it moving.
