Today’s challenge will probably be the most difficult one that I’ve had to do, and you will soon understand why. As this challenge comes to an end, this is a good way to finish everything and pull it all together. Between deep, personal posts, to funny, or uplifting posts, I feel this challenge as been a great way to know who I am behind the screen.
As you read by the title, I’m going to be writing a letter to someone. For me, this someone isn’t just anyone. If you didn’t know already, my family lost my grandpa 4 months ago. He was the glue of our family, and losing him has been the most difficult things we’ve gone through as a family. If I could write him a letter today, here is everything that I would say to him.
When I was almost 18 years old, I found out I was pregnant. My boyfriend, at the time, and I had been together for over 2 years by this point. He was ecstatic when I told him that the test showed positive, and came to pick me up. From there, we went to the store to buy another test, and went back to his Aunt’s house to take it. As soon as it, too, came back positive, he called everyone he could just to tell them we were pregnant.
I was excited because I’d always wanted to be a mother someday, but I was also embarrassed. The father of my child, although I loved him, had cheated on me more than once, and everyone knew it. Plus, we were young. I was petrified of others finding out I was carrying his child, but over time, that faded away. The more excited and attached I became, the less I cared what others thought of my situation. In the end, I knew that no matter what happened between the father and I, I would always have my baby.
If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or my Facebook page, then you probably saw my post a few weeks ago regarding the couple’s edition Q&A for my boyfriend and I. Well, now it’s finally time for your questions to be answered.
Below are a list of questions that we were asked by friends and family, where no question was to go unanswered.
Mother’s Day is a holiday where we celebrate the women we came from; who loved, raised, and taught us from the ground up. Whether you have a strong relationship with your biological mother or not, most of us have a woman, or women, that we look up to and celebrate today.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful, strong, beautiful, exhausted women who do your absolute best to raise your babies, even after they’re old enough to do for themselves. Today is for, and about you!
Everyone experiences moments of happiness, whether it comes from someone you love, something that you enjoy, or something else. Happiness is beautiful on everyone, and we should all seek out positive ways to feel immensely happy.
As with any emotion, happiness is temporary — it comes and goes. It is a remarkable feeling, and can do wonderful things for our physical and mental health. When you experience extreme low’s like I do, it feels even more surreal when you feel pure joy. I’m going to share with you 5 things that make me happy, even though there are many, many more.
What is a hobby? A hobby, or interest, is an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure, meaning it’s something that you enjoy doing. Everyone’s hobbies are different, but you will also share some of the same hobbies with others. Below are a list of my hobbies:
What does family mean to you? To me, family is literally everything. Not just the family that I was born into, but the family that I chose over the years. They are the ones that I know I can always count on, through the good and bad; who loves and accepts me; supports, encourages, and believes in me; and more.
I’m not going to go into detail about every single member of my family because we could be here all day, but I want you to get to know my immediate family. They’re pretty incredible.
