Today while walking through a crosswalk a car decided to get right next to me as if I was taking to long to cross the street. We exchanged some quick words however the words that came out of his mouth as I proceeded to walk were " Okay Move Fatty". It was right there... It was those quick words that took me right back to the negative space and all the pain I already deal with having body dysmorphia. I tried to laugh it off but as most of us know... words cut deep! To be honest I have never been publically ashamed like that before. I felt so uncomfortable even with my own man with me that I started to talk about these plants I wanted just to clear some of the awkwardness. The problem wasn't with him... the problem was I became so uncomfortable in my own skin. I have always struggled with holding EVERYTHING in, I am usually the type to suffer in silence but NOT this time.
It's really important we relearn the art in resting and relaxing
I am 27 years old and I have always been an alpha female. I have always been the leader of a pack, making sure everything got done correctly and everyone was safe. By the age of 15, I was a department lead, the first of the retail company to ever be that young. I took pride in my job and how I led my staff and that was just the beginning. I am in the medical field and not only do I tend to my patients, but I also handle the business side of things.
I was working late in the hospital last night when our power went out. Since I was the only one who didn’t mind going I volunteered to go reset our generators. Even though it happened to be on the whole other side of the hospital. To get there I had to go through the closed wing where they had been doing construction. Which meant little to no light since the wing had been closed for a year now. Luckily for me right before I left the new resident doctor decided he would join me. I had only worked with Dr. Brent maybe twice, but he seemed cool and cute so Hey! I didn’t mind having company on this trip.
Sometimes it's hard being a “trendy” girl from clothes to makeup products, especially when all you really see are people spending big bucks on makeup mostly all name brand from the wonderful collections at Sephora, Mac to Dior and Chanel. Although these can be amazing brands, they can break the bank trying to obtain them. So, I decided to compile a list of drug store products that I feel work better or somewhat like big name brands without breaking the bank.
