The definition of insanity is doing the same
things over and over, expecting different results.
Well, render me insane folks!
I woke up one day and realized that I was running on a hamster wheel and had completely let myself go. I was feeling physically ill from stress and bad habits. My body had become unrecognizable when I looked in the mirror and I found myself often wondering where the time had gone. This wasn’t just about unwanted weight, this was about my overall health and I knew something had to change.
I have always been a lover of natural products, supplements, and healthy eating. Like most of us, although I had a passion for these things I found it difficult to stick to my plan and remain focused. I had started and stopped so many workout and meal plans that I was feeling like a complete failure. My confidence was slowly dwindling as it became more and more clear what a struggle it was for me to remain consistent.
I had scribbled countless notes in my composition book about starting this Blog. I always felt like I wasn’t ready, didn’t have the right tools, and didn’t have enough of a following on social media… blah blah. In reality, these were all just more excuses. I realized shit had to change! I wasn’t getting any younger and my bank account certainly wasn’t getting any larger from my procrastination, it had manifested itself in so many aspects of my life. I had to get it together and get it on track.
I had always been a leader. My friends and family often depended on me for advice and guidance on a wide scale. I had always had a knack for relating to people and I damn sure could talk! (LOL) I had always been a writer and had always felt like one of my true callings in life was to help and inspire others. I truly enjoyed talking to people and using my life experiences, observations and research to help in any way I can.
Thus, Slay Day was born.
I know we have all used or heard the term Slay by now, mostly used to describe a killer outfit or to give a compliment to a gorgeous makeup application. The term slay quickly became an acronym for me: Show Love & Adore Yourself.
This is a phrase that holds such significance in my life; it is what I live by. I strive to show love in a range of different ways to anyone I meet. I hold interactions with others dear to my heart and aim to be a positive and uplifting force to everyone in my life; this is what Show Love stands for. Treat others as you wish to be treated, you never know how you can impact someone’s life with one simple interaction. Adore Yourself stands as a reminder of the importance of Self Love and Self Care. We all struggle with things we don’t like about ourselves and we all wish we took better care of ourselves in some aspect of our lives. Confidence is so important to overall success in life and noting the importance of taking care of you is often overlooked. I use this as a constant reminder of what I believe to be the two major keys to life narrowed down to two simple categories.
Slay Day is a way for me to share with all of you. To embrace the struggles we all face in our journeys to become the best version of ourselves. My hopes are that with this blog I can hold myself accountable while serving as an inspiration to all of you. By sharing this journey together I believe we can all achieve amazing things. There is no sugar coating here, I plan on sharing all the nitty gritty while creating useful and engaging content. This is personal for me.
I look forward to engaging with each and every one of you on this exciting journey. I look forward to getting to know you and you get to know me. This is just the beginning…
