So I know you’ve heard me talk about Boss Mommy Club and your still not sure what it is I am talking about. Let’s just say about a year ago I came up with this passion project-A working moms support group. I work and I love being a mommy too. I hadn’t really seen or found any like minded hardworking mommy’s like myself on my wavelength (focusing on self growth and achieving their goals).
So I thought to myself fuck it start your own shit. At the time I needed something like BMC in my life and figured I couldn’t be the only one and just like that Boss Mommy Club was born.
On the days I feel like giving up I remind my self to continue fighting for the fairytale because I believe that you can have it all. You just have to stay obedient to God and he’ll provide everything that you need.
As long as your alive to see another day you have a purpose here on earth and it’s not to live a regular smegular basic life. That’s right. You’re alive for a reason!
Don’t give up no matter how tired, frustrated or overwhelmed you are. Whatever you are feeling is temporary. Victory involves patience.
The sad truth is that most women experience after pregnancy hair loss. Hair loss is pretty scary. Matter fact, it’s terrible. I legit was in tears over my postpartum hair loss. It seemed like every time I brushed or combed my hair I noticed how much more hair I was loosing compared to before pregnancy and it was a lot.
My hair was everywhere.
I could literally run my fingers through my hair and my hair would ridiculously shed. Then next thing you know BOOM my edges were gone.
You’ll receive tons of calls and text messages, cards, flowers and even gifts that will warm your heart today. Your loved ones will even go the extra mile to let you know you are appreciated everyday but especially on this day.
I want to take the time to extend my gratitude for not only my mom but for all the moms around the world. Mothers have the hardest job in the world but never clock in, and never get paid. The only reward that we receive is that we get little human best friends to walk beside us for the rest of our journey in life.
God really handpicked the best mom for me.
Now that I’m older I reflect back on my own childhood and I’m amazed how my mother got through motherhood alone as a single parent. She did a good dam job. I know you will read this mom (because you are my biggest cheerleader and are always rooting for me) so I just want to say I LOVE YOU from the bottom of my heart.
Right now the west coast is in a serious state of mourning. On March, 31, 2019 the west coast lost Grammy nominated Nipsey Hussle to senseless gun violence. If you ask many of my peers they’d say our generation lost our present day Tupac.
The same way Tupac’s death affected not only the the rap culture but the world back in 1996, in loosing Nipsey Hussle (another young legend) we all felt that pain again. Even if you didn’t know him you at least had empathy about his untimely passing because he was legit a good dude who touched so many lives.
Nipsey’s celebration of life ceremony and 25 mile funeral procession was a testament of how much of a cultural influence he had.
Nipsey was a not just a young Black successful rapper but a leader, activist, family man, mentor, friend, father and entrepreneur who never forgot where he came from and always gave back. The fact that he came from nothing-it’s inspiring and let’s me know that you can have anything you want if you hustle and go get it.
While I was at home with a baby and my friends were enjoying there youth, not only was I was having really bad FOMO (fear of missing out) but I was struggling to balance work and motherhood. If it wasn’t for my mom friends I would have went through severe depression.
Having friends that have experienced similar issues makes what your going through much easier to talk about. Sometimes we share all the good and happy news but don’t like to talk about the ugly side of motherhood. The side that causes your hormones to rage in ways you never knew. I experienced extreme sadness, anxiety and self doubt after my third child and was diagnosed with postpartum depression.
I consider myself a momma bear mixed with a lot of momma shark do do do do. I am extremely over protective of all the children in my life. They are all my babies. Whether they are blood related or not they are by hood law my family and that’s not up for debate. Therefore, if you mess with anyone in my family but especially any one of my kids. I’m going to step in and take up for them. I will defend them wrong or right. It’s family over everything.
