Fake Love

Always be cautious of the people you have in your inner circle and who you associate yourself with. Jealously and greed can come in the form of a supporter. Fake love often isn’t disguised it can be detected in plain sight. When the love is real it comes natural and is rarely forced. People will publicly root for you then prey on your downfall out of your presence. Whenever you focus on bettering yourself the enemy becomes busy in attempt to self destruct the things you’ve worked so hard for. As long as your team is sincere there is nothing or no one that can stop your movement.

Are You Thirsty Enough?

The term “thirsty” is often associated with individuals seeking attention by going out of their way to make their presence known. Im sure we’ve all encountered someone that fits this description. However, instead of being thirsty for attention, I would advise you to be thirsty for all the things that will add value to your life.

Be thirsty for success. Be thirsty to put you and your family in a better position. Be thirsty about creating a legacy that will generate endless possibilities for the years to come. Be thirsty for god’s grace. Be thirsty for the strength and courage to face the ways of the world on a daily basis. Be thirsty for knowledge, patience and understanding. Be thirsty for stability and consistency. Be thirsty for self love and self care. Be thirsty for new opportunities and development. Be thirsty for a overall better version of yourself.

At this point you get the picture as the list can go on and on.The sole purpose of this message is for us to focus, put our time, energy and effort into becoming more efficient as a person. Most importantly to do away with wasting time on anything that mentally drains you or place a strain in your life. Take advantage of all the available resources around you to expand your brand then allow your accomplishments to quench your thirst.

Cheers to 2019!!!

It’s a year new which means for some of us new goals and new opportunities. If you want to set goals for the new year then DO IT. Don’t allow anyone criticize you about wanting to better yourself going into the new year. Forget their opinions and DO YOU.

Develop a vision, create a game plan then execute to turn that vision into a reality. Become a student of your craft to gain as much knowledge as you possibly can then push yourself until you can’t push anymore. Stay hungry for growth then watch all of your hard work manifest and surpass your wildest imagination . If you don’t believe in yourself then who will? Stop allowing other people to put their fear off on your dreams and aspirations. God will put you in the position but it’s up to you to put in the work and ignore the negativity.

Things will never go the exact way you want them to, However don’t allow that to discourage you and keep you from going after whatever it is you want to accomplish. Put in the work, keep the faith. Best believe everything will work out just how it’s supposed to in the end. 2019 lets shift our focus, leave the fear behind and invest in ourselves. Time waits for no one so take advantage of it while you still can. LETS GO!

Reflections of 2018

For the last few years, at the end of each year I sit down and create a vision board. The vision board consist of graphical images based on the things I would like to accomplish for the upcoming year. While I admit I did not accomplish everything on my vision board, I accomplished the majority of them. Some things are repeats that I’ve once again failed to achieve. When I think about those “carryovers,” I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s simply from the failure to try. Failure to put forth the effort to at least get the process started. It’s a difference when you can acknowledge your shortcomings versus making excuses. So that’s my truth.

The biggest goal was to live life without fear and travel more. I wanted to go after all the things I’ve been putting on the back burner for years. First up was a trip out of the states. For our 10th year wedding anniversary my husband and I went to Bermuda. Oh the beauty we were surrounded by was surreal and such a wonderful experience.

NEW YORK CITY

My favorite trip of the year easily was New York City. I’ve envisioned visiting NY every since high school, however when 9/11 hit I vowed to never visit. Well since I was on my “yolo” vibe all year I finally put the fear to the side and went for it.

BLOG

I’ve been in love with writing for as long as I can remember. I’ve written a collection of poems and songs over the years. The difference in back then and now is my desire to share my writing which is why I created this blog. I wanted a platform where I could share my thoughts and views. I am happy with my growth since going live last month. Going into the new year my plan is to grow a larger audience and connect with more people.

Biggest Lesson Learned

One of my biggest lessons learned this year is that despite our circumstances we have the power to conquer and overcome. This was simply more of a realization and acceptance more than anything for me. I’ve learned to embrace and accept the things that I can not change while continuing to work towards self improvement.

A Special Thank You

I just want to give a special thank you for all of you who have taken the time out to visit my page, read a post and leave a comment. The love is greatly appreciated. With that being said I would like to wish each and everyone of you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Willingness

As I think back on my life I can’t count the number of times I’ve talked myself out of doing something I really desired and wanted to accomplish. Majority of times fear stood in the way or the lack of willingness on my part to put forth my best effort. A lot of times we get so caught up with the possibilities of the outcome that we fail see things through. When you think about the steps involved in making something happen it may cause you to dead an idea before bringing it to light. 

The next level of your life may require you to disconnect from certain things and people in order to get to where you strive to be and that’s ok. It’s the price you pay during self improvement in order to better yourself. Don’t feel bad about what you have to leave behind. Not everyone or everything is meant to be apart of your journey especially if isn’t adding value to your life. 

Switch things up often. Practice spontaneity, explore your surroundings, seek new connections and knowledge. The world is so much bigger than the proximity we grew up in. There is so much to experience, we just have to be willing to take advantage of all the world has to offer.

When it’s all said and done be sure you’re content with your actions and the results that come from it. Believe that you’re deserving and you’re already half way there.

Life After Death

Taking it back to the year of 2008. What was supposed to be one of the bestyears of my life, turned out to be the worst. My year was set. I was gettingmarried in March and welcoming a baby girl in June. The events in between and after left an everlasting affect.

It all started in March, the week I was getting married. My grandma who was like a second mom to me went into the hospital with a “diabetic attack” Ok no problem this has happened before so she will be back home in no time I thought. We were informed that her kidneys were failing and the only way for them to improve was to do surgery for dialysis. Ma was 79 years old. The surgery would be a lot for her to bare and besides she wasn’t going for it anyway. She was content with the end being near. I remember vividly our last brief conversation. Things happened so quickly before we knew it, she was on life support and passed away a couple days later on March 15th,the day after I got married. I remember being so hurt and lost.  Yes, she lived a long life but that still didn’t change the fact that the one of the back bones of our family was gone. So what do we do now? The very next day my grandparents house caught on fire and they lost everything. A house that Ispent most of my childhood in was gone. In just two days my granddad had lost his of wife of over 60 years and the home they shared. Despite the losses he had endured in such a short time he remained strong for the family. Read More

Acceptance

Acceptance can be difficult depending on the aspect surrounding the situation(s).  A lot of time we are in denial or disregard the plain truths when in reality the issue at hand is coming to terms with it. When it comes to acceptance the variance is wide spread. Let’s take yourself for instance, you are the first one to take awareness of the changes that takes place within your life but the last one to accept it for what it really is. In order to make changes for improvement you MUST first face the truth. Stop running from your problems and making excuses. Once that happens then its time to hold yourself or the people involved accountable. Take the necessary steps to resolve the loose ends that you’ve been avoiding for so long. If you want to see change then your actions has to be reflective of that vision in order to contribute to the process. You have the power and you have the control when it comes to the direction of your life and the people involved. Take the wheel and steer it towards the right path.
