Self-Love Saturday with Erica Reid: You Are a nécessité


Dear nécessité,

How are you, beautiful? I am enjoying and celebrating myself and my life of no more school schedules after 20 years of it being a part of me; I am celebrating my life, health, and freedom from it all. Usually, around this time, I would have been doing back-to-school stuff, decorating the home for Halloween, and more. It is now truly all in the past. (I’ll still decorate). THANK YOU, GOD. THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Now, I’m LIVING MY LIFE Erica’s way, my best life, and creating my moments in addition to the ones GOD sends my way. Are you celebrating yourself and life too? Please do.

We all have so much to be celebrating and be thankful for. I know I do, and I do not take it for granted. Do not wait for your birthday. Honor and celebrate you every day, for it is a gift. Start now. Our blessings, ourselves, we must honor. They are blessings; we are blessings.
While I honestly had a moment of the school chapter finally ending the way I knew it, yes, I cried tears of release and joy, and I have not looked back. But, I am happy as I gave it my all and did it great. Yes great! Not perfect, but great.


It’s fall/autumn time, and I love the colors and the beauty of this season that paints a pretty picture for us daily this time of year. The orange, the orange, the orange. So beautiful. My favorite color. So pretty. Look outside right now, wherever you are. Give thanks, inhale the new season and take a nice, deep release. I recently went to the pumpkin patch, where I would take my kids yearly since they were toddlers/preschool. This was the first time I went for myself. It was different and enjoyable. I took it all in. I’ll connect more next time, but I wanted to say hi, check in on you, and say keep celebrating you in small and big ways. You are alive. You are a nécessité. Go get a pumpkin.

Much Love & Gratitude,
