Happy Sunday!! I talked about this scripture (Romans 8:38-39) in yesterday’s podcast session. Shame can separate you from a lot of things, but there is NOTHING that can separate you from the love of Christ, therefore there is nothing for you to be ashamed of. .

Remember my Self-ish Moment of the week from last week’s podcast episode? Well today is the day 😭 As much as I want to avoid all these feels, I know it won’t make saying goodbye any easier. .
.
.
We also talked grief on @schoolinlifepod this week. And even though I haven’t experienced a lot of deaths in my life, I’ve lost plenty of relationships and we grieve those as well.
.
.
.
We sometimes just have to say goodbye to the way things were, because after somethings change, there’s never going back to the way it was.

One of the things I love about @insecurehbo is that the show portrays women who are strong but also in a very vulnerable, #insecure place. For one of the few times on television, we see a black woman going to therapy and it being ethical and appropriate 🙄. We see these women struggle and take risks and fail and succeed and we still consider them to be strong. I love this show for showing the multidimensional nature of what strength is. .
.

Since we love Insecure so much, @schoolinlifepod and I will be live tweeting the show. Be sure to follow us on twitter and join the conversation!!

Asking for help is often a practice of vulnerability. Having to rely on others takes a lot of trust and that’s not easy to come by. People who allow others to help them in their time of need are courageous and impressive! #goals .

#FearlessFriday 🗣 Announcement: The Art of Being Self-ish is expanding to a PODCAST! 🙀🙈 When I started out, I wanted to do both, but I felt like doing both would be too much and overwhelming.  After getting some feedback and researching what would be best for what I want to do, I decided to just Go For It! It also helps that I got a taste of podcast life with @schoolinlifepod 😏 .

The podcast is currently on Spotify and GooglePlay, and will be on Apple podcasts very soon! I’m excited to start this new journey with you all! .

You wouldn’t stop eating pizza because one pizza place you went to was bad. So don’t give up on mental health treatment because you had one bad experience. Get the help you need. Try not to be afraid of trying again. You never know who is sitting on couch #2. Want to hear other ways to get the most out of therapy? Check out the link in my bio to hear this week’s episode. .

#TipTuesday If you want to see results, you have to be willing to put in the work.  This applies to so many different areas in life so it baffles me that this is not the case in mental health treatment.  You would never go to a personal trainer and let them do all the working out and expect to see results on your body.  However, far too often, people go to therapy and expect the therapist to do all the work and “fix” them and expect to experience improvement in their mental health.  Huh? Do the work.  I will always meet you where you’re at but therapy can only go as far as you’re willing to. .

🗣 #Message The grass is greener where you water it. Focus on sowing your seeds into your life and be patient for the harvest. You have no idea what (nor how long) someone else has been sowing, so you can’t compare your growing season to their harvest. .

This scripture is not just about money. It can be applied to anything that you’re doing, giving, or harvesting. So I want you to think about it in terms of your mental health. The more you are sowing into your mental health (whether in therapy or not) the more overall health you are going to reap and vice versa. Be sure to check out this week’s session (link in bio) to learn more about sowing as a client and reaping the benefits of therapy. .

As mentioned in last week’s episode. Another resource that I share and use quite frequently to find a therapist is Psychology Today @psych_today! They are great for finding therapists in your area. You can narrow it down based on insurance, treatment modalities, populations, and more! It is also a great resource for information, education, and self-help! .

#verseoftheday This can apply to ALL areas of your life, and it can be helpful as you’re searching for mental health treatment and trying to find a therapist. Have you ever thought about praying for God to direct you to the clinician who is going to be the best fit for you like you pray about him directing you to the best partner, the best job, the best friends, the best future? God wants to order your steps, so ask Him and then listen to how he tells you to move. .

My #WCW will always and forever be ME, even when I don’t say it, because I’ve grown to love myself so much that I just can’t help it. On last week’s episode, I discussed reasons to seek out therapy. One of those reasons was due to a life transition and that really hit home for me. When I moved to MInnesota, I experienced so many symptoms of depression and anxiety ranging from insomnia to passive suicidal ideation. I immediately sought out a therapist and met with a psychiatrist, because I refused to try to do it by myself. I truly believe I am where I am today because of [my many experiences with] therapy and I will always advocate for it. There is no reason too big or too small. If you can (i.e. you have or can make the resources), go talk to a licensed clinician. This week we are going to talk all about how to find someone. Be sure to tune in!

It’s #TransformationTuesday and The Art of Being Self-ish is going through some transformations of her own. Many times in order to grow, you have to cut back on some other things. (i.e. big chop to get this glorious #natural Crown that you see here 😍) So in order for me to grow this channel, I decided to cut back on the time I’m asking you to watch videos, which allows more time for other things soon to come 😉

God did not design you to handle everything on your own. Seek Him, ask for his guidance and help, but some times apart of that help, is seeking help from others. It is wise to seek counsel[ing] if you need it. .

Allow today to be a day of rest, rejuvenation, and relaxation. Let self-care be a way of life in which you take every moment possible to care for yourself. Allow today to be a space for you to gather with loved ones, eat good food, and have some fun! I’m feeling real Namaste-ish and reflective today. So Namaste. 🧘🏽‍♀️ #be_self_ish #namaste #celebration #relaxation #wisdomwednesday #selfcare #blackmentalhealth #minoritymentalhealthawarenessmonth
As we continue to move the #MinorityMentalHealthMonth I want you to consider the barriers that keep POC and other marginalized groups out of therapy. Some are cultural reasons, some are related to limited access. For a lot of Black folks, the hang up is religion. They have this core belief that you should be able to just pray things away and if you re still struggling then that means you aren’t faithful or religious enough. Well as a Christian and a practitioner in the Mental Health field, I strongly disagree with that sentiment. I don’t believe I would be called to do this work if God didn’t want you to seek out help with your mental health challenges.
.
So one thing that I want to be more intentional about is connecting scripture with the topics that we discuss on this channel. God cares about your mental health and there are certain things you can do that help you to be more healthy and sometimes that includes going to therapy. .
This scripture is related to resting and sleeping. I think it’s so important to acknowledge that God wants us to rest and sleep in a society that tells us to sacrifice our sleep and stay busy, busy, busy in order to be successful. I rebuke that. Get some good sleep and you will still be blessed while you’re sleeping. Now ain’t that a word!! Be sure to check out last week’s episode to learn some ways to have good sleeping habits! .

I’ve been thinking for the last few days about what I wanted to post for this. I chose this picture because it spoke to me on a bunch of different levels. When I look at this woman, I see the epitome of a “strong” black women. Fortified and solid, ready to face whatever the world may bring. Normally able to fight back her tears, but sometimes that one rogue tear betrays her. This picture captures the essence of why this page and my channel exists. I want women who look like her, who feel like her, who so often are her, to be able to focus on their mental health and well being as well. .

As we go through this month, let’s set up the habits that focus on our mental health that will last us the rest of our lives. Be sure to tune in every week to learn how to be more self-ish in your day to day lives! Also, let me know what you’re pledging to do to be more self-ish this month! Let’s hold each other accountable for our mental health! .

Our physical health goes hand in hand with our mental health. The things we physically do with our bodies can significantly impact our mental well being. Getting adequate, quality sleep is an act of self-care that we can do to improve our mental health and overall well being. When we aren’t sleeping, we can be irritable, easily angered, or even unexplainably sad. Therefore, we must be intentional about getting good sleep. If you need help with improving your sleeping habits, click the link in my bio to check out tips for improving the quality of your sleep! .

First, let me apologize. This week has been a little off for me. I try to make sure I’m being intentional about practicing what I preach on here, so the video that will be posted today is not the one that I said I would be sharing. It’s still a great topic so we will be visiting it later. BUT what had happened was...the day I was supposed to record, I decided to be self-ish and do something that I really enjoy and haven’t done in a really long time. However, that means I didn’t have time to record a new session for this week. Thankfully, I have an arsenal of older videos that I can pull out for a rainy day. Which is what you’ll be seeing today.  Keep in mind, the quality of video has come a looooong way but the message is still there🤦🏽‍♀️
.
.
.
This was also perfect timing because I have SEVERAL new and exciting “updates” on the horizon and some things I just want to try out and do differently. I’m really looking forward to what’s next and I hope you are too!! I don’t know where we’re going but it’s for sure going to be a adventure!

Just because someone is jealous, or mean, or rude, doesn’t mean you have to give them the pleasure of your response. You keep focusing on doing you and let God handle the rest. .

Stop worrying so much about what people think of you. You are performing for an audience of one. As long as you focus on being a good person, doing your best, giving back to the world in a meaningful way, it doesn’t matter if someone likes you or not. It doesn’t matter if someone agrees with your opinion or not. What other people think about you often has more to do with them than you. This is particularly important for our topic this upcoming Self-ish Saturday. We will be discussing jealousy in the workplace and this my first and most salient piece of advice. Mind your business when it comes to what other people THINK about you. Be sure to tune in to hear more! .

It’s okay to distance yourself from a toxic family relationship. There are lots of factors to take into consideration and lots of steps that can be done prior to cutting them off but don’t avoid that being a viable option. Tomorrow I discuss ways to determine the level of toxicity in your family relationships and then we discuss steps to take towards navigating those relationships. It won’t be easy, and it certainly won’t be fun, but in the end, it will be worth it. See y’all tomorrow! .

Sometimes we have to accept that the parent or family we were hoping for isn’t the one we got. The quicker you are able to let go of the expectation that you have around family, the easier it is to remove yourself from toxic relationships. Join me this self-ish Saturday as I discuss ways that you can take care of yourself and protect yourself if you’re experiencing toxic relationships with family members. This is often very difficult for people to navigate because of the messages we receive about our responsibility to our family. However, holding tight to these unwritten rules of responsibility can lead you down a path of resentment, anger, and low self-worth that you really don’t need. Looking forward to having this conversation with you! .

Unfortunately, Father’s Day can be challenging for a lot of Black Women. So here’s a little #MotivationMonday for you if you had a rough time recently. .
.
.
You don’t have to stay in and try to withstand toxic relationships, even with family members. Give yourself permission to remove yourself from those relationships, situations, and environments. There will be plenty of people who will tell you you’re wrong, you’re ungrateful, you’re selfish, and provide a bunch of other unwelcomed feedback, but at the end of the day, everyone has limits and once you’ve reached your edge, it’s time for you to pull back for your sanity’s sake and for your mental health. .

Please note: I did not tell them to do this lol but clearly these guys are fans of the channel 🤗 In honor of Father’s Day, I wanted to take a moment to recognize the husbands of the women who shared their journey to motherhood. They each discussed how much their husbands support them so I wanted to hear it from their perspective. I was so impressed listening to them talk about how much they lift their wives up and help them to be self-ish. They also discussed their self-care practices because men have to be self-ish too!! Thank you @jahi32 @wealthmordecai & @dougcain5 for sharing!! Be sure to join the guys this Self-ish Saturday!  See y’all tomorrow!!

As I recorded this week’s episode, I got to sit and watch 4 black men, husbands, fathers, and future fathers, discuss their wives and how they’ve supported them through different phases of life transitions and challenges. I was so impressed by them and how they are so counter to the images and messages that we generally receive about black men. Black men are often portrayed as everything under the sun but good, faithful, and supportive. For a long time, I believed this narrative and often times find myself feeding into perpetuating that narrative. However, when I return back to what I have at home and the people that I’m surrounded by, I realize that this isn’t my lived experience anymore. I’m just thankful that I get to live in a space where I can rework my thoughts and beliefs about who black men are. I hope that by listening to these men discuss their wives and their lives will help you to start shaking up that narrative as well. Join us this Self-ish Saturday as the men discuss their Journey to Fatherhood!! .

I started this channel because I wanted to raise awareness about mental illness by focusing on mental health, especially for Black Women. We are too often the ones putting ourselves last on the list. .
I wanted to teach people how to focus on ways that we can improve our overall sense of self by turning inward, not looking around at what every one else is doing.
.
 You can’t give from an empty vessel. You must first be nourished to nourish others. Hence the roots in my logo. .
I wanted this logo to really embody me as a person and also capture the essence of this entire channel. The roots represent how trees get their nourishment. In order for a tree to grow tall and strong it has to be nourished. In order for Black women to grow tall and strong we must be nourished. .
There are 7 roots for 2 reasons: 1. Seven is the number of completion. 2. There are 7 areas that I believe are integral to developing you as a person. .
Stay tuned for more info about my logo. And shout out to @jstreete for believing in my vision and creating this beautiful piece of work. .

#tbt I asked these questions a few months ago, but I think they are very fitting in the discussion of work-life balance. When you are feeling overwhelmed about the inability to balance your life...ask yourself these two questions to reevaluate your priorities. Work is extremely important for a multitude of different reasons, but is it the only thing you are living for? Join me this Self-ish Saturday as we discuss finding and maintaining balance in your work and life! #be_self_ish #professionally #worklifebalance #adulting #mentalhealth #wellbeing #holistichealth #theartofbeingself_ish

Work is extremely important for a multitude of different reasons, but is it the only thing you are living for? Join me this Self-ish Saturday as we discuss finding and maintaining balance in your work and life! #be_self_ish  #professionally  #worklifebalance  #adulting  #mentalhealth  #wellbeing  #holistichealth  #theartofbeingself_ish 
This is for all of us who hated group projects because we didn’t believe the other people were capable of getting the job done in the way we wanted them to. You may not have been aware that that’s what was happening, but often times, this is the underlying reason we do the work of everyone else instead of allowing and trusting other people to get it done.  This often translates into our work environment, where we would rather just do it ourselves than have to deal with someone else not doing it or not doing it the way we want/would. Or we just volunteer to take on extra tasks because we have a certain skill set even though there are other people who get paid to do that job and/or we have several other tasks related to our job description to complete. Stop taking on other people’s responsibilities if you want to feel more work-life. Delegate or hire someone to do the things that take away from your responsibilities.

This Self-ish Saturday, we are going to be discussing work-life balance, which was requested by a couple of you! .
.
.
One way to have work-life balance is by not checking or responding to emails after work, not checking or responding to work related texts or calls after work, and/or just shutting down the computer at a certain time. Now this obviously will look different for each person depending on your line of work but I would encourage you this week to figure out one way you can make a shift in your habits to allow you more separation from work. Join me this Saturday as I delve deeper into ways to have work-life balance. This is particularly important in the way that society has grown to us being more accessible than we have ever been. .

Each and Every Self-ish Saturday at 12PM EST, come join me for a new episode that focuses on taking care of yourself and being a little more self-ish daily! True or False?

I really feel passionate (If you can’t tell) about people minding their own business and allowing women to live their lives without being dictated by the opinions of those who aren’t stakeholders in said lives.  What I choose to do with my body is my choice. That includes the choice to have or not have children and the ability to determine when that will occur. Your (random person that I do not know personally) opinion and feedback about that decision really isn’t an influence. The pressure to have children is ridiculous to say the least. I really wish y’all would just let women live. Everybody does not have the desire to have children and we can’t expect people to have the same goals and timelines when it comes to starting a family. Be sure you tune in tomorrow to hear more! .

The culture of social media gives the False perception that even the most intimate details of people’s lives are up for conversation and often times debate. Well, I think there are several things that are not. Whether or not I want to have a baby, when I’m having a baby, and how quickly I should have a baby, fall into that category of conversations that aren’t on the table, just to name a few.
.

Do you find yourself often wanting to tell people these 3 keys to life? Or Do you often have a hard time discerning what your lane is? Well let’s chat about it this Self-ish Saturday. Gonna try my best not to just rant 🙈 lol Shoutout to @tiae45 for #3. Best hashtag ever. #stayoutofmywomb #be_self_ish #selfcare #mindyourbusiness #theartofbeingself_ish

This tweet by @amanda_parris pretty much sums up what I want to say to people on a daily basis. Out series that just concluded discussed women at several different phases of the motherhood journey. I love mothers. They are dope. I wouldn’t be here without an amazing mother. However, that doesn’t automatically make me want to be one. So, one population that I also want to discuss is women who don’t want children or women who aren’t quite ready for that. We need to start practicing better etiquette when it comes to women and their choices about their bodies and their lives in general. Is it really your business?  Let’s talk about it this Self-ish Saturday! #be_self_ish #psychologically #relationally #wellbeing #selfcare #holistichealth #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealth #blackmentalhealth #youtube #subscribe #theartofbeingself_ish

Session 18: The Journey to Motherhood: You CAN Have it ALL, will be posted tomorrow at 12PM EST! Are you ready for our fourth and final guest?! Women are often burdened with having to choose between being a successful business/career woman and starting a family.

Well what about the women who choose to blow these beliefs out of the water and does something that could be considered out of the norm. Shaday is a woman who wants it all. Be sure to tune in tomorrow to hear more about how she made this decision!

Our series will continue and end this Self-ish Saturday my #WCW @iamshaday! I’ve always known her to be a mover and a shaker. She’s not only a career woman, but she’s also a business woman. She works out ALL THE TIME, and is active in the community. She’s also an amazing wife, daughter, sister, and friend. And she hasn’t even hit 30 yet! When I think about someone who can pretty much do anything, I think about her.  So when I found out she was planning to start a family, I was surprised and curious to know what went into that decision making process. So I invited her to come and share all of that with you! There’s often a (maybe unfounded) conversation about Black women choosing their careers over starting a family. Well Shaday said she wants them both, she doesn’t want to choose. Join us this Self-ish Saturday as we discuss making that decision and how she still intends to do all the things she wants to do! I’m so inspired and I hope you will be too!

You really can. It just depends on what “having it all” means to you.  As we close out our series, we have a soon to be mom who discusses what it was like for her to shift her priorities to focus more on starting a family. Even in the midst of wanting to do more, wanting to achieve more, she changed her perspective on what “more” actually was and what that actually meant for her.  Women are often asked to choose between career and family, well @iamshaday doesn’t want to choose. She wants it all and she seems to be managing it pretty well. We’re still trying to figure out where she hides her cape lol. Join us this Self-ish Saturday as we discuss making a decision to start a family while also being a successful business woman!

Tomorrow, we are continuing our May series: The Journey to Motherhood: Fertility, Faith, Parenting, and Pregnancy. Tomorrow, we are going to be discussing Parenting, specifically being Self-ish while also being an great mom!
.

People will always have an opinion about what you should be doing as a mother, both those who have children and those who don’t 😒 What @erindemitria and I both agree on is that you have to be able to take care of yourself in order to be present for your child. She also encourages women to be confident in their parenting skills so that they aren’t overwhelmed and stifled by the “mama guilt” around taking care of themselves. Being a self-ish mama is necessary! Join us as we discuss ways to make this a part of your life and the benefits of such practices. Erin also shares where she learned to develop this habit. Be sure to tune in tomorrow at 12PM EST as we discuss how Mama can have a life too! You definitely won’t want to miss this! See y’all tomorrow! .

Session 17: The Journey to Motherhood: Be A Self-ish Mama, will be posted tomorrow at 12PM EST! Are you ready for our third guest?! When a woman becomes a mother, it can often feel like there’s a lot of pressure to act a certain way and do certain things that are primarily focused on and revolve around the child (which don’t get me wrong, a lot of it is!). In this, women can lose their identity and sense of self. Well not this self-ish mama!! Erin is adamant about taking care of herself and living her best life while raising and caring for her daughter. Be sure to tune in tomorrow to hear more about how she does it!

As we continue this series, The Journey to Motherhood: Fertility, Faith, Parenting, & Pregnancy, I’m so excited to shoutout our next special guest! My #WCW today is @erindemitria !! She’s actually the reason that this entire series came to fruition because she commented on a post and suggested that I do an episode about being a Self-ish Mama! I was thrilled by the idea and here we are! When even just considering the amount of things you have to do to raise a child, a mother’s life can easily become ALL about her children (I would imagine), but it’s so important that she continue to take care of herself and do things that feed and fulfill her separate from being in the mother role and Erin does just that! Whether it’s regular Mani/pedis or birthday trips to Spain, this Mama has no issue with being self-ish and still be a loving, caring, present mother for her beautiful baby girl! Want to learn all about how she does it? Be sure to tune in this Self-ish Saturday as we discuss being a Self-ish Mama!
