The word "Slay" has became such a popular word to describe someone "killing it". Now most people us it to refer to how someone looks, their outfit, make-up etc. But to me the word can be use to refer to someone's life. Things are going so well these days, I feel like I am slaying life. As hard as it might be at times, I do stop and appreciate the little things that have been making me happy in life. Today marks the 2 year anniversary of my Mom's passing, and I take any opportunity to bring her up in conversation, to make it feel like she is always with me. I could be sad or depressed on this day but I know that's not what she would want. The day we had to take her to the hospital, she grabbed my hand said "You have to be strong" is embedded in my mind forever. She knew she was never going to return home and needed me to be strong for her and the family. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life, and continues to be. But I made a promise to her that I do not plan on breaking, so with that I will "slay" the day in her memory.
I got this gem of a t-shirt at The Curvy Con this year from an awesome woman named Reiko. She's owns a small business called "God's Favorite Surprises" which refers to themselves as the "concierge of kindness". They provides an a' la carte service of hand written thank you notes for Besties, Brides and businesses as well as this adorable t-shirt. I had the pleasure of meeting her and chatting for a bit, she is an absolute delight. I love being able to support small businesses, especially women owned ones. Not enough people support them and during times like this, we need them more than ever. So make sure you head over to her site and show her some love!
How are you slaying the day?
