loving YOU

Good Afternoon everyone, I hope this post finds you & yours well. Loving yourself. It has more to do with how you feel than what you see. It is so common for us to fall out of love with ourselves as we age. Why is that? If you ask me falling OUT of love with yourself or rather, no longer being in love with thyself is merely a matter of allowing the outside IN. If you read my writing often you’ll notice the way I refer to our childhood & our youth as reference for purity & joy. I know not all of us have had pleasant childhoods, in fact some of us may lean on our adulthood and independence for memories of joyous moments. I had happy childhood. My point is that it’s important to be IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF, the most life changing time to be in love with yourself is when you like yourself the least! A lot of you have sent me emails and messages, asking me to help you because …

A LESSON FROM #KOBE

I believe in GOD, I was baptized and raised in a Christian church. God undoubtedly puts each one of us here with purpose, how dedicated we are to fulfill our purpose as we enjoy the fruits he planted for us … is up to us. Kobe left the biggest impact on us as he could. He gave us everything he had while he was on the court. He taught us drive, consistency, determination, courage, and most importantly HEART. I’m still in disbelief, I didn’t know him personally but I felt his impact through his spirit & his energy. I listened to his retirement speech, in it he said “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the late nights you stay up working hard. The early mornings you wake up and work hard. That’s the dream.” While I can’t stop envisioning the reality of his family’s present state, I can clearly see how he filled his purpose. Life isn’t about us, it’s about how we use our own life to leave a lasting impact on the …

Inventory of energy …

Your devotion to being the best version of yourself is a direct reflection of both your focus and your perception of your own self worth. Not everyone is concerned with being their “best,” and that is ok! My desire to be my best stems from religious roots. I grew up as a Christian in the church, I enjoy helping others, and I often take on way more than I should but I always get it done. The fire inside me that keeps me chasing this “best” version of myself is something God chose for me and I am VERY in tune with my intuition and my duty as a child of God, so I just keep going, hoping that others find their drive through me sharing mine. As of late I have been taking inventory of my energy. I have been executing new things that I set out to do, I’ve opened my circle a bit, I have met some new people and I’m sharing my energy with them … which can be tricky. Energy …

Q4

  “Q4,” meaning one-fourth of a year. Quarter 4 (October, November, December) is the last quarter we have in 2019. Breaking years down by quarters is one of my favorite things to do when it comes to planning ahead! It reminds me of being in school and finding that one method that just helped me learn better. Couldn’t tell you why but, seeing four groups of three months just ignites my creativity, lol! It may do the same for you! Ok … October!!! Can you believe it? Just three months and that fast it’s been one whole year! To be honest up until 2017 (the year my son was born) I didn’t track my yearly goals. I made them, tried to follow them, and the rest was history. I didn’t check in on them, I didn’t set deadlines for them, I didn’t WRITE them down on paper, I didn’t visualize them, I didn’t set a day aside to brainstorm them, I didn’t make note of small steps I should take to get closer to them. …

STRUCTURE

Greetings Friends, I hope you’re off to a great start for the month of September. Last month (August) we focused on “distractions” if you missed that post please find it here. This month we are focusing on structure. It wasn’t until after I had my little guy G, my son who is almost two years old, that I adopted structure into my life. Prior to adopting it, it was something I looked at as “boring” I thought that being spontaneous and seeing where the day took me was far more “fun” and added much more “value” to my life than structure ever could. This was very immature of me, and I quickly learned that after being able to excel with the addition of structure in my life. I also realized that for some time I didn’t like structure because it requires you to take inventory of everything, all the time. You have to accept where you are and find out how to get where you want to go. That can be hard for some of …
