The best version of you!!!

The best version of you!!!

What Does The Best Version of You Look Like?!?! Have you ever sat down and thought if you were on the right path to becoming the person that you want to be or even the person that you feel God created you to be? Of course, we are all a work in progress but sometimes it’s necessary to stop, sit and ask yourself if you’re becoming the best version of you or are you just in this mundane routine of your everyday life without taking into consideration that you are here for a reason and a purpose. Once you begin...

there are years that ask questions and years that answer

 It’s the second month of 2021 and by now we’ve had a few weeks to settle into the new year, but we all know from last year, we can get settled in for a couple of months and things could go completely different at the drop of a dime. We can plan out a year to the best of our ability but there are always things that may happen that will be out of our control. How do you handle those moments that bring the unknown of what’s to come? Do you choose to go with the flow of it...

dear readers book highlight: year of yes

Shonda’s sister told her that she never says yes to anything which really caught Ms. Rhimes attention. Has there ever been a time when someone told you something that hit you so hard to the point where you couldn’t help but ponder on it long enough to where it made you realize the truth behind their comment?! That’s what happened to Shonda Rhimes. I also realized that her sister was talking to me again as well. I read this book at the end of 2017 in preparation for how I wanted to take on 2018 and it made me realize...

Lessons taken from 2020 for 2021!

“Packaged inside of every mistake their lays a great lesson and while I don’t want to take the mistake into the New Year, I certainly want to take the lesson that’s packaged inside of it.” 2020 was a whirlwind in more ways than one and affected everyone in its own way. While throughout the year a lot of people were affected financially and physically in a negative way, it also made us pay more attention to so many things that hopefully we will continue to practice internally and externally on a consistent basis. For a lot of us the down...

PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION

PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION

PERFECTION IS BS!!!!!!!!! I didn’t start this inspirational lifestyle blog because I thought I had the answers to everything, but more so because I know what it feels like to need some motivation and encouragement to keep moving forward in my purpose.
