Being alone doesn’t make you lonely

Happy Valentines Day Aspirers,

Today some of you might be celebrating with your special loved ones either today or maybe later on in the week because it’s hard to stay up past 10:00 pm on a weekday. For myself, I will be spinning time with the one person that means the most to me which is MYSELF. I have no problem with that but for others like myself, some of your friends and family might wonder why are you spending the 6th, 7th, 8th year (who’s really counting anyway) alone on Valentine’s Day. A lot of questions might be asked and the big question on people’s minds  is “Are you lonely?”

Guess what that’s a great question. Anyone can be lonely. You could be in a committed relationship, married, or have kids and still feel lonely. The presence of someone else might not define the well-being of your mental state. You can be around someone every day but something feels like something is missing. There are people out in the world that never experienced being alone and still have unanswered questions about themselves because they’ve constantly been around people for so long they haven’t found confidence in their own skin.

For the longest, I was terrified to eat alone because I thought I would be judged of not having anyone to eat or laugh with at the table. I was so uncomfortable being seen by myself. It sounds weird saying that out loud but it was true. I just went to the movies alone for the first time last year and guess what it was AWESOME! I love being alone at home but enjoy my own company in public is on a whole other level. I even walk away from my girls when we are out to use the restroom by myself. Ladies don’t act like you all don’t go to the bathroom in groups especially the college ladies that are reading this right now.

It’s okay to have anxiety but the only way to get over something is to try it. If there’s a new movie out, a new restaurant to try, a new store in the mall that just opened up I can’t wait for other people to make room in their schedule sometimes. I have to enjoy it first and tell them about it later. Being able to find joy in your own company makes it easier to find joy while with others. We have to be honest with ourselves sometimes it’s not the other person that is causing the problem because we might be the problem. Don’t expect others to bring joy into your life if you can’t enjoy yourself.

Ask yourself this question, are you lonely?

Sincerely, Courtney Renee

Non Stop Lip Color by Col-Lab Review

Hi Aspirers,

If you remember in one of my previous vlogs I mentioned wanting to get Raven Elyse’s customized matte addiction liquid lip color. If you missed it check out the video.

I finally bought the lip color and what the sales person told me wasn’t completely true. I’m glad I decided to go ahead and purchase the lip color and decide for myself. I was hoping the color was similar to Guerlien 401 Parline Blop but unfortunately it wasn’t but I still love the color.

To be honest just wearing the color as is would of been too light for my skin complexion and I added a brown liner to darken up the color just a bit. The wear of the lip color was okay it didn’t completely smudge off as I was eating my food. I had to to only reapply it once. It’s really light weight on my lips which I love because I hate feeling like I have something on my lips. I will recommend using a lip balm as a base. It doesn’t make your lips dry but it looks dry overtime.

If you’re interested in purchasing Raven Elyse Non-Stop matte lip color check it out at local Sally Beauty store near you or order it on their website.

Sincerely, Courtney Renee
