As the holidays approach and seasonal depression sets in, I've come to see that perspective isn't the only thing I've gained during this quarantine, and the fact that Thanksgiving is right around the corner is upsetting me and my waistline. Although you may, too, feel stagnant on your journey to getting snatched, Jazmine Sullivan has all the inspiration we need to get our fitness goals back on track.

The singer recently debuted a new look, and although many of us were happy that our good sister is happy, healthy, and living her best life, the internet proved once again that they will always have the audacity. In response to critics that claimed the singer was "too skinny" (peep the picture here), Jazmine had this to say:

"Last week some people dragged me saying I look sickly. I'm honestly a size 12. 180 lbs. There's nothing skinny abt me but my neck 😩😂 I'm 5'8 however, so I sometimes photograph a little leaner than I am. But I ain't skinny and that was never my goal."

Jazmine explained that she began her healthy lifestyle journey after her mother's cancer diagnosis and ultimately transitioned to a vegan diet to stand in solidarity with her.

"My goal was to support my mother through her battle with cancer by going vegan with her and, in turn, it helped me as well. And I feel really good. I have a lot of things to work on in my journey and I'm not nearly the model for health and fitness…But I'm trying. And I'll continue to do so with my momma! Bless y'all. Love y'all. Stop talking about people. Vote in November."

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
