My Mood Ring #SelfCare #Summer17Writing : Day 4

I absolutely LOVE today’s writing prompt of the “21 Days of Summer” Writing Challenge:

If you put on a mood ring right now what color would it be and why?

The term self-care has been OVER used in the last two years. But since I love what it stands for I’ve found myself using the hashtag when getting a pedicure or indulging in a book, etc. However, it wasn’t until today that I used self-care as a act of checking in on my emotions. 

What are your days like? If they’re anything like mine I’m sure you’re always on the borderline of a breakdown. From the moment I wake up I have text messages and emails that I need to tend to. I often feel like I’m being pulled on in multiple directions, as I try to be all things to all people. Needless to say, if I were to put a mood ring on right now the color would reflect the colors of the rainbow. I’m an emotional wreck- in a good way. Sorta.

  1. Anxious. What’s going to happen to me as I into a career as a actress/screenwriter? Who will our baby look like? Where are we moving to in a few months? arrrrghhgghhhhhghrrggh. It’s tew murch.
  2. Stressed. We need to move into a larger space no later than September. Meanwhile, I’m running Black Owned Chicago, acting as a manager for Just Steve (my husband’s stage name), and pursuing my own endeavors. Jesus. Take. The Wheel.
  3. Hopeful. With all the craziness that happens in life, at the end of the day I’m still hopeful. God’s plans for us are to prosper us and not harm us (Jeremiah 29:11). Therefore, I am hopeful.
  4. Determined. By any means necessary.

Your turn. How you doing? *Wendy Williams voice*

Love Always,
