Starting this blog has put me in touch with a TON of other happy black women all over the world! I’ve only been blogging in this space for a week, but so far I’ve been able to connect with lots of positive sisters through my blog comments and on Twitter. Apparently even Kim Coles (remember her character, Synclaire James from Living Single? Hilarious!) has stumbled upon my blog!
So I guess when you go looking for it, you end up finding other people traveling the same journey. I came on the scene just in time for Happy Black Girl Day, after all! Kudos to Sister Toldja for starting the #happyblackgirl hashtag on Twitter earlier this week. For me, it was a day full of making positive connections with other happy sisters, many of them who had personal blogs that I’ve started following. But before I started this blog, I didn’t read that many personal blogs at all. I hadn’t really written a personal blog since my days on Myspace. Yes, Myspace. Now, I’m happy to be following some great ladies who are living their best lives and telling the whole world about the process.
My life in the aftermath of a breakup. A chronicle of moving on and self-improvement in preparation for greater things in life.
Natica is a very honest writer, which I appreciate, especially given the subject matter she’s dealing with. She started blogging right after her fiance broke up with her. They had been together five and a half years. Says Natica of her journey:
This is not “yet another breakup blog.” I will grow and become a better person each day. I am going to come out stronger. I motivate myself daily. I have hard days. Some really rough days. But I refuse to end up depressed.
I remember breaking up with my fiance K in 2006. It took me over a year to get over it, even though I was the one who broke up with him. So I can only imagine what this sister has gone through. You should read her blog even if you’re not going through a break-up (but especially if you are). She openly shares her feelings and actions to become a better person in the aftermath. Her strength and resilience is incredibly inspiring. Some of it can’t help but to rub off on you.
