Raelyns Roulette

At first when reviewing the clothing for this collaboration I wondered, am I too short? Some of it is outside my usual boring style of no patterns. Also, I am not a fan of linen due to wrinkles or stiff fit....no problem here. When it arrived at my doorstep, I was blown away! I tried on everything and Chris looked it all. It was so flattering and the print/colors were a perfect mixture of pigmented colors yet not overwhelmingly colorful. I have worn each dress to church and as a human being, the compliments have been overflowing so naturally I began wearing it everyday. It's loose around my waist so I simply add my staple belt that goes with everything. Considering the price point, I have no idea who they keep it so affordable. This is why...

No one told me what postpartum would be like, mentally or emotionally. I had NO IDEA postpartum depression and anxiety ran on my moms' side of the family. You can't imagine how confused I was as to why I kept crying and crying, for no specific reason. #ad #sponsored

Once my maternity leave was up, I confided in two friends who had a baby around the same time as me. They both wished they had spoken up to anyone willing to listen in regards to their mental health postpartum. I called my primary physician and they got me in ASAP. I was shocked as to why they felt it was urgent for me to get in. As soon as I left my doctors office, Walgreens had sent me a notification to pick up my prescription! Here comes the REAL fun part.....

I want to start of with a message from Church that I feel really spoke to me to SHARE. 
Tom Brady the greatest quarterback to win 5 to win Super Bowl games, everyone knew who he was, and he loved doing what he does for a living. The world at his feet. Please explain to me when he had an interview and I quote...

 "BRADY: …There’s times where I’m not the person that I want to be. Why do I have three Super Bowl rings, and still think there’s something greater out there for me? I mean, maybe a lot of people would say, “Hey man, this is what is.” I reached my goal, my dream, my life. Me, I think: God, it’s gotta be more than this. I mean this can’t be what it’s all cracked up to be. I mean I’ve done it. I’m 27. And what else is there for me?
KROFT: What’s the answer?
BRADY: I wish I knew. I wish I knew…" 

Exactly how I have always felt my entire life. It wasn't the Super Bowl, but creating goals for myself and reaching them come hell or high waters. Each time I got there, I wanted more and more. You will see below where that got me.

You or someone you know needs to read this. 
Until these words ring true in the heart of every person, they will find themselves saying, “There’s gotta be more than this.” What people experience after they come down from amazing highs in life was described by Solomon thousands of years ago when he wrote, “Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 2:11)
