Mother’s Day ⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀ Mother’s Day has always been a hard day for me. It was a constant reminder of how everyone had a amazing mom, and I didn’t. I hated God for giving me the Mom that I had. It really messed with my self esteem, had me question my self worth, and if I was ever worthy of being a Mom. ⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀ I had a very rocky relationship with my mom. We were constantly in competition with one another, she always choose others over my siblings and I. She never knew how to show up, and just be there for us. A couple weeks after I gave birth to Chloe, she was sentenced to life in prison. I grieved. I was happy she was being put away, but at the same time, I hurt and felt sad for her. ⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀ I’m a Children’s Therapist, and the one thing that I love about my clients are their ability to show unconditional love. No matter how mean, wrong, angry they are with their parents, they love them. Unconditionally. It hit me hard, like a ton of bricks when I found myself a whole, adult, woman, crying because I wanted that love from my mother. A love that she didn’t know how to give me. A love that she had never received herself. A love that only God can show me. ⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀ God has put it on my heart to share. To share my experiences, thoughts, and feelings, about my life with everyone. To let you know that God is able to rewrite your story. No matter how many crazy obstacles, traumatic experiences you have been through. He can take anything, and use it for your good. ⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀ On my 30th birthday (which is a little over a week away) I’m launching my blog jessicalhall.com . I’m being completely vulnerable and sharing some of the most difficult experiences in my life. Your girl has been through some stuff..like your girl has multiple TV shows out currently, about my Momma. My goal is to show you how God is rewriting my story, and using every traumatic experience I’ve been through. I want you to join me in prayer as I embark on this new journey. Leave me 🙌🏾 in the comments if you’re down. ⠀⠀ #lifelessons#lifestyleblog#tulsablogger#dailyparenting#honestmom#christianblogger#documentingmotherhood#browngirlswhoblog#bloggerlife#bgm#BlackGirlsWhoBlog#blackbloggers
You were created to stand out. You were created to be you. There are certain gifts and talents that are specific to you. There is a specific audience assigned to just you. Your wins and failures all help to make the person that you are. Never let anyone make you feel as if you are inadequate. It’s so easy to get caught up in not feeling like you’re enough.
I’m here to tell you that you got it. You’re beautiful. It’s okay to love yourself. It’s okay to be confident in yourself. It’s okay to fail. Something that I’m constantly reminding myself in the world of social media perfection 🙄. Remember people always post there wins and rarely ever do they post their losses. Just get back up and keep going. You’re smarter, stronger and better than you think.
“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” If you don’t know where this quote is from we can’t be friends lol. • ⠀⠀ Hey y’all, I’m Jessica and this is the my squad. The family that God blessed me with. My hubby Ced, CJ, and Chloe. We consider ourselves #TheHallsWay. That’s the name of our YouTube channel. I love these peeps with my whole entire heart. ⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀ My family is no where perfect, nor do we try to be. We are just on here riding the wave, learning and growing each and everyday. When I look at them I’m constantly reminded of God’s faithfulness. They are everything and more of what I prayed for my family to be. Even when Ced and I get into arguments, when CJ talks my head off and doesn’t want to listen, and when Chloe wakes me up at 3:30am and wants to snuggle as she sings baby shark. ⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀ Being married is work, raising kids is work. After I leave my day time job, I clock in to my other 2 full time jobs. I know every body wants that picture perfect family. However, it’s way more to it than just having the perfect picture. It’s constant sacrifice, long nights, and constantly giving of yourself, even when you feel like you don’t have anymore to give. We are a regular imperfect family, that goes through highs and lows like everyone else. We make mistakes, we learn from those mistakes, and we constantly push through to be the best God created us to be. We love God and we know that God can get us through anything. We know that He has called us to be world changers. ⠀⠀ If you are new to my page or haven’t checked in a while tell me something about yourself or your family. ⠀⠀ #familymatters#representation#love#blacklove#family#life#bedeeplyrooted#momswhoblog#honestmomconfessions#mytinytribe#familyforever#lovemyfam#lifestyleblog#personalblog#reclaimthehappy#nothingisordinary#stillswithstories#perfectlyimperfect#reallove#familymatters
