Quarantining Means….

Ladies and gentlemen this is the land of uncertainty! So many emotions have entered my life since we’ve been on lockdown. Shelter in place started on St. Patrick’s Day for me and boiiiii has it been a world of emotions for me. I don’t know about y’all but this current state that I’m in is rough. The beginning of it was productive moved into a new space so I’ve unpacked, unorganized and ┬ápurged. One thing about me I love creating a space of peace because my everyday life seems to be so unpredictable. Before this time I was an employee who went into the office then came home to care for my mini me. Then on that Tuesday I became a stay at home mom. But that transition didn’t last long before I was pushed into a new routine.

3/27/2020- I was laid off! So now I’m a full time mom LORD HELP; hats off to you stay at home moms because I’m trying to figure out how in the hell did I work and still be a mom and take care of my house. When I tell you it has been nothing but unstop moving and doing things! LAWD! So we’ve moved from uncertainty to grieving to the loss of a job to taking on new roles that involves being a teacher, stay at home mom, and navigating my photography business. When I tell you I am trying not to dwell on how scared I am for the safety of my family during this time in COVID season. Learning how to navigate through this is literally time…I’ve went from happy to confused to sad to unproductive to sad again. Between journaling and therapy that has kept me sane during these times. I just want to know how the rest of the women: moms, single moms, married women, single women, etc.

How are y’all feeling out there? What are some ways that you are making it through this quarantine life? Because SIS I am all over the place mentally and emotionally! Take me back outside!

The time is now!

Hello beautiful women,

It’s been a long time coming but I am finally taking that leap to get this blog going. I’m excited and nervous but this is another step to my journey in life. For a long time as a mother I have put myself on the back burner but with all the changes that I have had to endure I won’t be doing that anymore. This blog is more spiritual for me a way to get my thoughts out with the hopes of reaching deeper inside to heal. I have no grand plans for this other than the hopes that some women will read this and be able to relate to my thoughts on the screen. So with all that being said allow me to introduce myself….my name is Imani (which means faith) something I am working hard to believe in; I have a tendency to second guess what I really want or why I might be feeling the way I do. I am 28 years young, a mother, a photographer, a grad student, a “home school teacher”. That’s just some of the many hats that I wear! Sometimes life gets overwhelming but this is my vent/release session. I hope you ladies will join me as I navigate through this thing called life (who knew we needed a manual for this shit)!
