Self Care Series : We need to Talk

"I'm convinced that we Black women possess a special indestructible strength that allows us to not only get down, but to get up, to get through, and to get over." ~ Janet Jackson
Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Thursday! I hope you guys enjoyed reading Tuesday's post where I shared 3 things you need for a successful dance career. I enjoyed writing that post. I am going to try to write more dance related posts such as that from a professional perspective. 

I am striving to be more transparent with you guys - especially here on my blog. I need to be completely honest with you all. I have not been practicing what I preach lately. I always talking loving yourself and taking care of yourself and honestly I feel like I have let that go. I had an anxiety attack on last week and it was the scariest thing! It scared me so much that I called my mom. (Anyone else call their mom for like everything?!) After I had explained to my mom what had been going on with me - one of the first things that she asked me was "Are you taking time out for yourself?". I was surprised because once I thought about it - I really hadn't. I haven't been putting myself first or even practicing loving myself. So I am working on putting myself back as my number 1 priority. I often times get so consumed with working, dancing and blogging that I forget to just chill. I get caught up in all the titles that I have that I forget to just be Stormie. 

So to start this off, I want to get back to the place where I love myself unapologetically. For today's post I am going to share 10 things that I love about myself. This may sound vain to some but I am SO HARD on myself that I neglect just all the things that I have accomplished and just how awesome I am! We all possess qualities that make us special and I just want to use this post to celebrate mine! :)

1. My zest for life!
2. My beautiful hair.
3. How passionate I am.
4. My willingness to learn.
5. My creativity.
6. My beautiful body and skin.
7. How hard I love.
8. My empathy towards others.
9. My intelligence.
10. How silly I am.

Practice self love with me by sharing something unique about yourself that you love in the comments below! I can't wait to read them! I was extremely nervous about sharing something as serious as this with you all. However, I feel so much better! I hope that maybe this inspires someone to be a little more patient with yourself and love yourself a little better.

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

3 Pros and Cons Being a Freelancer

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." ~ Jim Morrison ***Stock Image by Wonderlass***
Are you or have you ever thought about being a freelancer? The entire concept for most means freedom to do what you want. Setting your hours. Getting to sleep in. Working when you feel like it. While some of those are true, I think people get a false perception for what it's really like to be a freelancer. I freelance dance and write so I want to share some pro's and con's. These statements are my own opinions so I suggest taking it with a grain of salt.
Pros 1. You are ultimately your own boss. You can dictate what hours you work and how long you work for the most part. Being your own boss means independence and not having to answer to someone else. 
2. You can work as little or as much as you want. Since you are your own boss, you can determine how many projects you take on at a time. Usua…
