PREP TALK ON LETTING GO SHAME

 

 

Hello SP Fam!

I’ve been going through a process lately of letting go of shame. I know i’m sure most can relate to this. It’s been very hard, but deeply healing no matter what steps i have to take.

For a while now, I kept parts of my past life hidden & always been pretty much secretive about most things. I was ashamed of the mistakes I had made and the way I used to live my life honestly. I had a lot of fear that people wouldn’t like me or judge me if I let them know the truth. And that is just facts on facts!

As I move forward in life I realize to have the kind of life that I want to have I need to throw out the shame I’ve been holding inside for so long. I’ve been working on eagerly β€œclearing” my fears as they come up. I’ve started to notice when I hide my real authentic self because of shame. I have made a commitment to stay true & 100% honest now. If I’m not ready to speak out loud about my problems I’ll remind myself to write about it in my journal.

This process has become really important to me but very long. I do believe when I show authenticity and my open spirited personality I give other people in my life permission to do the same and that feels really important to me for the most part.

What makes you open to be more authentic?

Sometimes we don’t always want to be our selves around people because we may not trust them or just feel uncomfortable. but no matter what, being authentic at all times has got me more further in life and gave me the courage to say what’s on my mind and not feel ashamed about it. Now i am able to do things that are hard and give myself that big push forward when it’s needed.

 

Is it hard to be authentic?

Yes it can be hard, especially to others who “aren’t authentic.” But that shouldn’t stop you from staying true. Maybe you can motivate someone to live in there truth and be just as honest.

 

Don’t give up on being a better version of you. To elevate in life, you have to make sure people know the real you at some point in life. Embrace your authenticity and be fearless. Some people will respect you won’t.

50 things that make me happy

a17a86ad-54a7-46d2-9410-3668de9d0d84

 

 

There’s no big secret or surprise that my life have been tough. As you see i blog about mental health a lot, because i go through it myself. The past few years i have been fighting it. So it’s up and down, but i have gotten so much better with coping with it.

Being in a “dark hole” is not how i necessarily described it. More like “A bunch of rocks being thrown at me repeatedly.” Yes at times i felt at most times my life was ruined, and it was no more happiness left in me to keep going.

Then POW!…

Here goes the interesting part.

I had given up. I didn’t really have the motivation and strength to. I always felt i needed that support to keep pushing. All i thought about is how i wanted things to be back how they were, and how i can move forward in life. All i wanted is to feel, act, and know myself again. There’s nothing like knowing who you truly are.

Here i am today, feeling much better. Actually finding myself, and starting off doing the things i love doing. Writing in my journal, blogging, promoting my new lip gloss business, and so much more. Also working on my mental state, my growth as a woman, and keeping focused. Although everything might not go back to normal or how it originally was, but i do know for the best part things will get better over time. I am beyond grateful now, I can truly say that.

Now i decided to start making a list of different things now, so it can help me throughout my growth & transition during life. I enjoy writing a list of things that make me happy. For me, writing a list keeps me in a very good place in life. I have been negative, or been around a lot of negative people/energy, I never really focused on happiness too much. So when i decided to start making list, I would always come back and read it so i can go cheer myself back up again. I had to remember that i have more of a reason to be happy now.

Making a list of things that make you happy takes your worries away from enjoying the things you love and enjoy. It’s tough to write one a list of things that make you happy, and not smile periodically. This is mine, right here, and I highly encourage & recommend you to write one of your own. Especially if you find yourself in a dark hole or confusing place in life like i have.

Just keep reminding yourself about things that make you happy, things that put a smile on your face, things you feel grateful for, is a good & fresh way to start. I don’t regret my past feelings because i wouldn’t feel how i do today. Being appreciative and acknowledging change is the best way to be.

Life Update: Took a break from blogging. Now i’m back.

eef41b06-4ea5-4d37-870e-2416554cb692

So guess what? I decided to start doing life updates, just to keep you posted with me. I did say before i wanted to start finding new ways to connect with my audience, now i came up with the best solution. So let this be a new start.Β Life update part 1.

What’s up “Sp fam” (sixteen pages fam)

As you know, Sixteen Pages Blog, is to inspire, motivate, and discuss many topics from self-love, care, growth, and building +more. But for my life updates, you all will be digging into my lifestyle, figuring me out, and following me through my journey/path on pursuing my goals,. Also i will be writing about my fight with depression, my life as a mom, my relationship lifestyle, and so much more. These life updates will be 100% authentic of course. I mean i’m not blocking anything out, straight raw! Anyways let’s get started.

So what’s tea?…..

I decided to take a break away from blogging to focus on a business i started in Late June. The business is calledΒ SixteenKisses.Β It’s a beauty company selling a variety of beauty products. At first i was making it a priority to blog daily or every other day while still working on my business. It just became to much stress on my mind/body. I would be up all night and be super tired, and on top of that i still have a regular job so lol i’m sure you get the point now. I am incredibly ecstatic that i am completing another goal in my life and moving on to the next chapter. It wasn’t easy making all this happen but i did it. I can’t wait until my business expand, but i am patient and i am staying consistent. Now i am back to the blog world like i never left. I have a lot of upcoming things i want to do on my blog. I put a pause on those goals i had for my blog site and now i am ready to achieve them.

I have new interesting plans that will make my blog site more fun, entertaining, and helpful. So, let me throw some scoops at you! I decided to start doing interviews but in a different way. I will ask a selection of questions, and whomever will answer them, send photos, and leave a link for people to find them and i will add it to my interview section. All interviews will be put on a blog post in (writing). I decided to start doing interviews because it’s a good way to support & share the stories of successful men/women around the globe. There are people like myself that is killing the game, and not being noticed like as we should. Β The goal is to provide examples of men and women who are walking in their purpose and want to show the world there gift.

Besides me cooking up all these interesting plans i have coming up, I also been working on a lot of me time. Self-care has been playing a big part on my life now. I been exploring the nature more, finding new things i love to do. I have a new series on Netflix i can watch while i’m alone with my cup of coffee, and i also been treating myself to a nice size glass of wine before bed time. I just been so mellow, nonchalant, & relaxed. It feels good i can truly admit i love taking time out for myself even if i’m not doing to much of nothing.

Well anyways sp fam, that’s all for now. Stay out on the look out for the next life update :). Check out my otherΒ blogsΒ if you haven’t yet.

See you all soon!!

 

 

 

 

How to Overcome Your Fear of Self-Promotion

I know it can’t possibly be just me who went through this fear of self-promotion. Do you ever get that nervous feeling to share links in your blog or own your social media accounts? Do you hesitate to promote your own work you spent long nights & hours gathering together? Do you feel when you market your products it’s a slight chance you might not get any sales?

Well your not alone on this one! Many people even myself experience fear of self-promotion, especially if you are a beginner and just getting started. But lets put a stop to that fear! Here is 5 tips to help you overcome your fear of self-promotion.

7d44fdae-8204-44d2-851e-e50d1ca5f06d

1. PINPOINT YOUR FEAR

So, what are you exactly afraid of? Do you feel that no one is going to support you? Do you fear rejection? Does putting yourself out there makes you question if you will receive rejection? Are you scared of failure? Well, to get over this fear you have to pinpoint the problem.

 

2. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

If you want to overcome your fear of self-promotion, you have to believe in yourself and your value. You have to know that you are worth more than you think you are. Be humbled, but still think highly of your craft. You deserve as much attention a lot of other people are getting. You are just as talented & business minded. If you aren’t passionate about your work no one else will be neither. You deserve to win & make it to every step you need down this journey, and you will.

 

3. KNOW YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE

When it comes to knowing your target it’s definitely important when it comes to blogging or starting your own business. You want to make sure you reach an audience that will be interested.

When you know your value and significance for others in what you’re promoting, your confidence will help you promote it in the best way possible.

 

4. STOP THE NEGATIVE SELF TALKS

If you continue to think negative, you will lose hope on elevating & moving to the next level. Think of the reason why you decided to blog or start your own business, and let that why turn into your motivation to keep going. You are dedicated & genuine about your work your audience will be to. Know your passion, remember your passion, and stick to it. You might be coming out your comfort zone, but know that it will be worth it all in the long run. Don’t overflow your mind with so much negativity & continue to be positive at all times.

 

5. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECTION  PERMANENT

Practice your pitch. Remember when you are blogging and starting a business you have to market yourself. Marketing is self-promotion. You have prepare yourself to know exactly what you want to get across when promoting brand. Be ready to connect with new people because it’s definitely going to happen. In ordinary to have that comfortability in your brand you have to practice, so your skills can come naturally. After is comes natural then it will turn into permanent. So everything will become more easier for you and you will be fearless.

5 TIPS ON HOW TO BECOME A RELEVANT BLOGGER

There is a lot of people who want to start a blog, But not really posting relevant content that catches the audience attention. Sometimes, people feel as if they post a blog it’s automatically going to get someone’s attention and it doesn’t work that way. Why waste your time posting up blogs Day by day but not doing anything to get attention you need or want. Make your blog relevant, and today I want to show you a few tips on how you can do that.

1. FIND A BAD ASS NICHE

A niche is a specific topic you will be posting about. You know when you go on google and you search (How to be more mindful) and hundreds of blogs pop up, and your clicking on about four different ones so you can get the correct information you need. Well clearly, you can see that topic is popular because a lot of blogs are popping up, so make sure you post something that people actually want to read.

2. CUT THE LAZY CRAP AND GET TO WORK

Yes! Stop being lazy. If you want to become relevant, you have to make yourself relevant. Sometimes we give up when we only get 10 likes on our pictures, 5 views on our articles, and not getting any comments. But what we all fail to realize, everyone started from somewhere. You can’t just wake up and want to start something new and think right then in there you are going to rise up. You will grow over time. Some people have there own time limit when they will get noticed, but you can’t focus on other people and how they are ahead of you. Just do what needs to be done and you will slowly but shortly see how far you have succeeded.

3. CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY

Be consistent with anything you do. Make sure you post daily and share links directed to your blog on every social media platforms. Support yourself first, then eventually people will support you. If you post good topics you will receive good feedback.

4. BE AUTHENTIC

Be real. No one wants nobody to feed them with lies and bs, that’s not a good look. Like when you see other bloggers post β€œI made $300,000 in a week click here to see how!” Then when you click it, it feeds you with a bunch of bullshit, then tells you β€œif you want to find out more information save your spot now for the webinar for $250!” Lol! Total scam! Rather if they do have the information, how did they learn the information they are teaching you? I’m sure they figured it out just like how you can. You just have to plan, brainstorm, and not find the easy way in to everything. Honesty is the key to having loyal readers. I don’t know about you but i cling on to people I can trust!

5. CREATE VIDEOS

Videos some how bring a lot of attention. People would like to see you, be visible, chat with your followers or readers. Sometimes physically being visible makes your blogs so much better. Your readers can actually see, hear, and understand you so much better. Sometimes it’s good to just level up and do things a little different.

Hitting your late 20’s? Make the rest of your 20’s a year of self-discovery.

Now that I’m 28 going on 29 in December, I just realized that I started late when entering in to the entrepreneur world. At age of 27 is when I started to think like wow I’m ready to be wealthy. And truthfully I’m sure other mid & late 20 year olds know that this is the most hardest time in our lives. Why? Because we are finally in adult hood and we are experiencing so much responsibilities. Bills, rent, gas, children, school, work, all of those things put pressure on us.

I was stressing more than actually finding myself and really trying to figure out my next step in life. One day I just woke up feeling different, feeling like I need & want more, feeling like this isn’t for me. It’s a honor to be comfortable with who you are, but at times it wasn’t because I was thinking that people will judge me for just figuring out what I actually want to do in life. So now I know I need to fight off any bad spirits that’s trying to bring me down and stop me from moving forward in life.

Our 20’s should be a year of self-discovery. Try different things until you find what you really like and want. No matter if it’s with someone, or by yourself. There’s nothing wrong going on a journey by your lonesome. Sometimes even relationships can be a distraction, and I wish i knew this then instead of now, but hey life is set up to learn and discover.

When I look back I realized how irresponsible I was, I couldn’t save money for shit, and I was so quick to spend. It’s a time in life where you have to stop buying all that expensive shit when you can save that money for your future success. Now that I’m on a journey for financial freedom and independency Starting now, I been brainstorming and figuring out a plan to build & become wealthy. My mind is already set to become a millionaire 1 day, and I’ll never change that or settle.

I decided late in life that I want to become a blogger. So, I started a blog Sixteen Pages. It has been two years, this is my anniversary blogging month. I always enjoyed writing, being expressive, sharing good advice, and discussing important topics, so I knew blogging was going to be something I’ll enjoy. And It was.

So now I listen to entrepreneurial, money making, and uplifting podcast on Anchor, another one called β€œpodcasts” that came with my iPhone, and a couple more other podcast platforms. Listening to podcast has motivated me in so many ways. I’ve changed my thoughts about sex, relationships, and money. I now have a better sense that anything is possible with faith.

At first I was more afraid then happy to pursue my dreams, now I’m ready. I am not afraid to travel now, I am not afraid to take my brand to the next level, I am not afraid to quit my 9-5 so I can start my adventurous lifestyle while blogging. I am ready to travel out the country to learn, explore, meet new people, promote my brand, and to build my happiness.

In the path of transitioning into the new you, you might lose people on your way. But sometimes I honestly feel β€œif I lose you, that means you were never meant to be in my life.” You will lose & meet new people, it’s possible.

Make sure you focus on self care. Self care has been very momentum in the past few years. Back then I didn’t understand the concept of self care. Self care involves your health, mental health, appearance, etc. Just taking care of you and making sure you are good first is self care. That’s my motto now and my motto walking into 2020.

Be responsible. Sometimes when we get to a certain age, we start to be unorganized, and that is definitely not good especially if you are stepping into the entrepreneurial life. I admit myself that I am not responsible at times and I slip up. And I learned my lesson, like a big lesson. I remember I didn’t plan out my week for paying off bills, and end up doing something totally different and was broke by the end of the week. I went without gas, small meals, and barely no gas to get work. β€œCan I say the struggle was real?” I definitely don’t want to go through that again. Be responsible.

There is an app to by the way. Using a planner has really helped me be more responsible, on time, and way more organized.

If I knew what I know now I’ll tell my younger self to be confident, independent, don’t give up, and focus on what you want and go for it!

β€œBelieve in yourself, know your worth, and focus on positivity & less negativity.”

Don’t use your personal social media account to promote your blogs #MakeAnewAccount

When you you use your main social media account sometimes it defeats the purpose. “My opinion!” I think it is more valuable when you make an account specifically for your blogs. You can be able to explain better in detail, have debates, and all around target the main point of whatever blog you just published. You want to make sure your audience be able to understand, relate, & focus just on that blog, so you can be able to bring them to visit your website. It’s all about posting good content & giving your readers more of a reason to enjoy your content as well.

Use your creativity

Being creative is something that comes natural regardless. Sometimes a lot of people feel they aren’t creative, but don’t understand that everyone is in there own way. Find different things to post on your social media that will bring attention to your social media. Host a giveaway, have a poll on your Instagram story, or go live and interact with others.

Make videos on (Insta story, Insta post, Igtv)

When you make videos, it just helps brings more audience, and also a good way to show your authentic self. Let people get to know your personality, and be able to visually see you. Sometimes by just posting pictures aren’t just enough. Talk about your upcoming blogs, what do your readers want you to blog about next, or just whatever that comes to mind. You are the host remember that, so think of some of your good skills you have, and put them to use. The more you stay active, the easier it will get to start getting people to notice you.

Be consistent with your followers

Yes, consistency is the key. When using social media, your social skills are important. People adapt to those who are communicative & open. Make sure you reply to comments, & DM’s, because that’s what your audience would like. No need to act sassy and ignore those who are asking a simple question, or just want to shoot you some advice. Not even that, but what if a company is interested in working wit you and like your content. You don’t want to pass up good opportunities.

Post daily

Stay active by posting everyday. Even if it’s a simple quote, picture, or just something that you want to discuss. Especially until you build your social media following up, eventually you can make a routine on what days you post, but save that when you elevate & actually have a good amount of following.

HIGH QUALITY
(HIGH QUALITY PHOTO)

High Quality Photos

Photos is another way to bring a large audience. Make sure you download good photo editing apps like Photoshop ExpressPicsArt, and many more. Even myself can admit that when i see awesome photos it brings my attention right away. Sometimes you have to think as if it was you who will be interested.

Use HASHTAGS!

Hashtags is another way to build up your following, actually a quick way. There are billions of users who use hashtags, be one of them. Make sure you use the right hashtags and also switch them up. Sometimes using the exact same hashtags for months & months, will make it hard to get your page noticed. So yes use hashtags! You can search up viral hashtags on google of course.

I hope these tips can help, they definitely helped me in so many ways. Screenshot so you can have them in your phone.

How a toxic relationship with people can bring depression

Exactly what the topic says should pretty much give you an idea on what point i’m trying to get to. Depression is pretty popular now, i’m sure you all know that. But sadly, we still continue to put up with so much bullshit that we don’t even think about what it’s doing to our mental. 

When i say a toxic relationship, it doesn’t necessarily mean boyfriend & girlfriend or husband and wife. It can be with friends, family members, or just anyone you have a relationship with.

If your around someone who always has an attitude, it becomes annoying right?…I know for me it does. I hate it with a passion. And sometimes holding on to bad blood isn’t the right choice. Dealing with your significant other who always snaps on you is definitely toxic as well. Being around people who thinks negative 90% of the time is toxic to. So my point here, what are you going to do about that? Tag toxic people around, or let them be.

Now, lets not play victim here, if your toxic and around someone toxic that also isn’t healthy. Two toxic people is like stabbing each other in the back. So that isn’t a good mix at all! But sometimes toxic can become addictive. I know some of you are reading this like how????

I mean, it’s true. If you have the urge to feed into toxic bullshit, that goes to show how much you engage into it. So to move on from toxic, you have to let go of toxic & stop being toxic. Start focusing more on what’s better for you instead of what’s not healthy for you. Sometimes we also might think a break can fix our problems, but sometimes a break can make the problem worst.

Sometimes we are scared to let go of things or people we are use to holding on to, but in order to focus on happiness, you have to be fearless.

All toxic energy can definitely make you depressed. Depression isn’t easy to heal at all. I always feel it’s good to try to prevent it as much as you can. I have suffered from depression for over 6 years, and i definitely can say it has been a tough journey. One thing i did that was a big help in my life was write in a journal.

Journaling has been a big stress relief for me. I try to at least write in my journal on a daily basis. Figure out what helps keep you from negative people, negative vibes, and focus on moving forward. 

Think about how precious life is, and then you will realize that sometimes we have to stop adapting ourselves to something we don’t have to. Yea you will be tested through out your life to see how far you will take things, but pettiness can get washed up just as quick.

Think more wise, and you will move much better.

8 SELF-CARE HABITS FOR THE MIND

As humans we have to cure our minds & focus on self-care first. We tend to focus more on what’s not important then what’s actually important.

Self-care is doing what needs to be done, and balancing all goals you want to achieve in life. Self-care also nourishes your spirit and pushes you to strive hard everyday.

If you don’t take care of yourself or to harsh on your body you will become overwhelmed. That’s why I’ve pulled together 8 SELF-CARE HABITS FOR THE MIND for you!!

1. Take time off. Striving hard everyday is really important because the whole point is to achieve your goals, but sometimes it becomes tiring & a issue.

 

2. Find some quiet time.  Sometimes our lives are so busy we don’t never have time for peace and quiet.

 

3. Positive self-talk. Often times, you are your own worst critic.  That little voice at the back of your head can get real disgusting.

4. Get Bodywork. Our bodies store emotional tension in ways that we don’t even realize or notice, and bodywork allows us to release that built up tension.

5. Spend Time in Nature. Spending time in nature can actually be healthy for you, such as lowering your stress hormone levels. Get outside. Go explore, hit the beach, go hiking. Enjoy hearing the birds and the sound of waterfalls, enjoy our beautiful nature.

6. Eliminate Toxicity. Eliminate your amount of time you spend in negative situations or people that drain or leave you feeling stressed & over the top.

Always surround yourself around care, love, & positive energy.

7. Feed Your Mind. As a human, of course we are here to grow, learn, and elevate. Learning something new becomes interesting for us humans because it keeps our lives going and more interesting.

Try reading a new book, listening to a podcast, or even go to a museum.

8. Get Creative. Use your creative skills and put them to use. We all have a creative side, sometimes some of us just don’t know exactly what it is. When I say creative I don’t necessarily mean you have to be artistically creative. For an example, I like to take pictures, also I like to dress up, so I will dress up and take multiple photos and edit them, that’s part of my creativity gift. I was always told I take nice photos of myself.
