A Journey Back to Me

1505163122724.jpeg

Karre Brown is from Long Island, NY and is the owner of  K’marie Hair Company. Karre has realized that she is flawed due to her depression, PTSD and anxiety. She has always had depression, but she was not diagnosed until 2015. She allowed the abuses of her past to convince her that she was not worthy of living.

These are her flaws because they hinder her from being her best self. Karre’s anxiety keeps her from participating in lots of life’s activities. Her depression keeps her in bed and also causes her to eat her into sickness. Her PTSD causes her to be in a room with other people and feel totally disconnected.

Karre does not know if she has completely accepted her flaws, but she have accepted God and God has given her the comfort to face each flaw that she has.

Karre’s Advice

Stand Still! When life feels like it’s falling apart, allow it to fall apart. Do nothing. Sometimes God has a way of sitting us down so that we can be still & hear him. There’s to much chaos & confusion trying to be a bulldozer. Let God open you up & doors will open for you.

Ain’t nothing like my sistah’s


Can we take a moment and appreciate all our friends that aren’t our biological sisters, but are our SISTERS !

I adore and admire my sister, Tanya. She is my best friend, and my second mother. Whenever I need her, she’s right there. She always assures me and never makes me question her stance in life. She’s my sister but the things she does for me is not because she is my sister. What she does for me shows she general cares for me.

So obviously when it comes to having girl friends, I have high expectations because of my sister. Let me tell you my sister friends are the shit. They hold me down like I’m there biological sister. It’s so great that we as women are blessed with these types of relationships.

This post is for my sister and all my sister friends ! I love ya deeply and ya mean everything to me. I have been in many situations where at least one of you or all of you have helped me get out of. Words cannot really explain how much I love ya so much 💕

The Come Back Though

 

giphy.gifSo for two weeks, my weight has been playing with me, but I take full responsibility of it. To be honest with ya, I haven’t been going to the gym due to school work, but that is not an excuse. I even been eating junk food and I know I ain’t right for that.

In order for me to see progression, I must keep focus and not create excuses for my actions. No change is going to come if I keep falling back to my old ways. Don’t worry though, your girl has come to her senses and I am refocused and the grind is about to be real. I will work towards my goal until I reach it. And once I reach it, another goal will be made.

Thoughtfulness of this post is that never let anything side track you from getting or achieving a goal that is for YOU. Don’t cheat yourself from greatness.
