Introducing Through the Journey's new t-shirt collection, "In My Feelings," an expressive emotional collection. It's okay to express yourself, and that's what this collection is all about.
I wanted to create a new t-shirt collection for 2023 but was having difficulty figuring out what. That was until I started to focus on my 2023 goals. Which are releasing fear in certain areas of my life, protecting my energy, and taking better care of my mind, body, and soul.
This collection is not meant to be negative or derogatory. It's a form of expression. I'm pretty sure you've heard people say, "You in your feelings" or "You feeling some type of way." Well, I'm in my feelings, and I want to share with you what I'm in my feelings about.
The phrase "In my feelings" may be seen as a coping mechanism but is more about being at peace. You are not overlooking your feelings; you know what you feel and why. Now you have to make decisions that align with you protecting your peace. It's your way of articulating how you feel, and if someone asks you what your t-shirt means, you tell them. Just like I'm about to tell you what these t-shirts mean to me. I'll start with my favorite.
NOT MY M'FKN PROBLEM
Meaning: Everything is not my problem, my time is valuable, and my energy is precious.
Example: There are some things we don't have the capacity to handle, and that's okay. Stop taking on things that burden or weigh you down. Or steal your energy. Alleviate and burden and focus on yourself. I sometimes throw the "F" word around. Maybe more than I should. When I say it, I feel a sense of relief and can go on with what I was doing or was meant to do. So, I created a t-shirt with my favorite cuss word.
I'M NEVER WRONG JUST A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF RIGHT
Meaning: It's not about ego because no one is perfect or knows everything. However, there are times when you know you are right, and someone wants to debate you. No need for that because you are on a different level of right.
Example: When someone denies the facts or tries to justify their actions, don't go back and forth with them. It takes too much energy. Instead, speak your peace and let it go. You are on a different level where you will not argue or debate anything. Again, it's about protecting your energy.
I'M NOT FOR EVERYBODY AND EVERYBODY AIN'T FOR ME
Meaning: Your energy is a language of its own and sometimes too powerful for other people to handle.
Example: Do not dim your light to make others feel comfortable. If you know who you are in your heart, are not causing harm to anyone, and are not boastful, continue to stay true to who you are. If people can't handle your spirit, it has nothing to do with you.
MOVE I WILL DO IT MYSELF
Meaning: Something needs to be done and you are the one to do it.
Example: You know what you want or what needs to be done. To all my mother's out there, you can relate to this. You tell the kids to do something and go check to see if it's done, and it's not to your expectation. So, you tell them to move out of the way so you can do it yourself. Or it's a goal you are working towards. Either way, you will do it yourself.
