Fighting Lessons

Alicia Jay2 Comments

First and foremost, thank you so much for your support of The Tallest Virgin in the World. Your emails and social media messages meant and mean the world to me. It received good ratings and we are still waiting on pins and needles to see if it goes to series! I will definitely keep you updated.

With that said, I have to admit that I have been on somewhat of a low, after that amazing high of seeing something I worked so hard for, coming to fruition. In so many ways, I worked my entire life to gain a platform, such as a national television program, to show women everywhere that they are beautiful JUST the way they are and furthermore are created specifically for a purpose. Then it drops and…nothing.

Now, I know that God is working behind the scenes and that His plan is the only plan but right now I am being attacked in so many ways. From personal to professional, I have been tested in the days since the pilot has aired. I was at a very high point of frustration when it hit me…

When God wants you to grow and prepare for the next step in your life, He makes you uncomfortable.

Yep. He does it on purpose.

Think about it. If you were happy and comfortable why move? Why grow? We would never make a change if there was no reason to. That uncomfortable state is a tool God uses to craft you into what he wants and needs you to be.

So if you are uncomfortable like me, don’t stew in it. Learn from it and prepare for your breakthrough. That frustration is a step to unlocking a new path that will lead to everything God has planned for you. Don’t give up.  It’s hard rounding that corner but think about all of the effort it took to get there.

Don’t fight the lesson, learn it.

You know as well as I do that jumpsuits come few and far between for us however Alloy Apparel has some amazing tall jumpsuits in inseams up to 37".

Take the Jenni Denim Jumpsuit. As you can see it's super long and doesn't give the dreaded camel toe. You can also stand as tall as you want to be because the body of the jumpsuit isn't too short (we can't have bad posture for anybody's ill cut jumpsuit).

I love a good Tall jumpsuit because they are a great, easy way to instantly look polished, are super comfortable and show off our tall, beautiful frames.

I chose to wear the Jenni in a little more of a "skinny jean" type of way but in general I usually order one size up in all Alloy tall Jumpsuits so keep that in mind when ordering.

Happy jumpsuit day! Well, I don't know if it really is but any day that we can find a jumpsuit is a happy one:)

First and foremost…last night was amazing! All of your support and well wishes for the debut of the Tallest Virgin in the World pilot means the world to me. Overall I was very pleased with the episode and completely in awe of the opportunity that God has given me to show the real life of a tall, single, virgin. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

However, I do want to make one thing clear…

My virginity is very important to me. I am looking for love, marriage and THEN sharing everything with the love of my life which includes my virginity. I am saving it for him and only him. I am not in a rush to lose it but giving myself a time frame to find love is something that I am trying because it makes me step outside of my dating comfort zone and approach finding love in a different way than I have in the past. If it works, amazing! If it doesn’t, on to the next plan. Regardless, I can’t wait to share every step with you.

Again, thank you for everything! Please put in those prayers that it gets picked up for series and I will be sure to keep you updated:)

You are amazing...I couldn't do this without you!

The Tallest Virgin in the World

I have been wanting to tell you about this for SO LONG and now I can spill the beans! I have been working on a project for some time now and it's finally here...

I shot a pilot for Lifetime (which also happens to be the same title as my book) called The Tallest Virgin in the World. It's a half hour show that features 6'4" Talltique owner Helen Pappas, the fabulous 6'6" Sydney Wilson and myself. It's about the real life of tall, single women and I am honored to be a part of it.

It airs THIS WEDNESDAY on Lifetime at 11/10c. I can't wait to share it with you! Please tell me what you think and look out for my #TallestVirgin recap on TallSWAG the morning after (Thursday).

Thank you so much for your support! I look forward to your thoughts about the show and God willing we will be talking about a series in the future:)

Running Men

In the past month I was approached by 3 men, at 3 completely separate times, who wanted to get to know me. I was actually interested in all of them and thus reciprocated their requests. Subsequently each one of them ran…no sprinted…when they found out that I was waiting for marriage.

This has happened before and it will happen again until I find him.

Running men occur when waiting for your husband and while rejection definitely hurts, it’s part of the process that I am most grateful for. It completely weeds out the men who physically want you versus the men who actually want YOU. The men who merely want to sleep with you will straight Road Runner it the moment you speak the V in virgin.

Let them run.

 A man who isn’t patient enough to wait for you, sex or otherwise, will never last a lifetime.

And whatever you do, do not…I repeat DO NOT…run after a man who is running from you. It’s a pursuit that you will never win and quite frankly makes no sense. Love will never run from you and you will never have to run after it. Real love forms, happens, stays. I speak from experience on this (that’s a whole other blog).

Little do these guys know, they are running from a lifetime of the very thing that they want. Virgins are waiting to unleash every fantasy they have ever had on the one man that waits for them. They think about it all the time but find it special enough to save for one amazing person who deserves them. These running men, miss out on forever for an impatient moment. But that’s none of my business though.

PLEASE run from me so he has a clear path to find me.
