Mental Health: Let's Talk About It

Mental Health is a challenge in our society today and at large, it is very much obvious but still a lot of individuals find it difficult being open about and even wanting to discuss about it, why is this the case well for one it may be because of the stereotype always attached to ones admission of suffering from some sort of mental health issue: and by this I mean the ‘oh he's one of the crazy people' kind of statement that goes around in hush tones. Over the years while having open minded discussions with some of my friends who are very honest and sincere with their psychological state, I have been privileged to have first hand knowledge about the issue. Ever since then,the topic has been of massive interest to me personally because of its scope and severity especially in my country Nigeria where as much as 1.5million individuals are thought to be affected by some mental illness or the other every year, the most common being Bipolar also called manic depression.

Beyonce Graces Vogue September Issue

On Monday Vogue Magazine released the cover of their September 018 issue featuring none other than the Lemonade Queen Beyonce. .

She sat down with the Mag to discuss Her Body, Her Life & Her Heritage. .She told the Mag that after the birth of her first child BlueIvy Carter she believed in the things society said about how her body should look and that made her to put pressure on herself to loose the baby weight in three months and then scheduled a small tour so that she would actually do it and Looking back that was crazy. .Beyonce added that she was still breastfeeding when she performed the revels show in Atlantic City in the year 2012. After the twins she approached things differently. . .

Beyonce added that she was 218pounds when she gave birth to Sir & Rumi carter and was swolen from toxemia hence the need for bed rest for over a month. .due to her health and the health of her babies she had to undergo an emergency caesarian section. .

Beyonce also went further to give detailed description of how having a caesarian section felt;-
     “we spent many weeks in the NICU .My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, best friend, and a father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until nine months later. Today I have such a connection to any parent that has been through such an experience. After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been major surgery. Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in some cases removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that. I needed time to heal, to recover. During my recovery I gave myself self love and self care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be. After six months I started preparing for Coachella. I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol, and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my Fuller curves. My kids and husband did too"

Vibes Shade & Life

What is the definition of vibe?? Basically if you look it up on the internet, one of the probable search result will be:
“a person's emotional state or the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others."

whoof! now that's a very good description of what vibe is all about. . and I for one am all in for the best vibe out there. . i mean how else do we get to resonate our aura & inner chi to the rest of the world. .Vibes has come a long way to basically earning its keep and spot as some sort of pop culture phenomenon and that you've definitely got to agree with me on,of course I beg of you to differ.

Now let us get down to the relationship between vibe. .shade and Life!!!!        But before then i just want to literally y'ell (whoot-whoot) why you may ask? Well I don't know about you but who else is definitely feeling the shot above!? Never mind: well I sure am and trust me when I say that it takes a lot of energy to portray what I call the “shade" attitude in a random shot. .

The whole details of the shot is intriguing(I must confess): from the blurred background, to the hair, the sun shades and ugh the angle. . You know most of us have little or no stress at all portraying and tapping into our positive vibe with an ounce of shade(and I am obviously envious) . .and by “shade" I don't mean being rude or nothing like that, but instead resonating an attitude that says and speaks positivity. .carefreeness. .spontaneity. .and warmness. .

I mean with all this qualities all in one,you bet that Life is going to be Less Complicated. .More Fun Filled. .Much More intriguing. .Definitely Vibrant and Hey Filled with Positive Vibes and I guess those are the qualities for one to qualify as a “Positive Viber". .
