I typically don’t post selfies of myself, but I’m feeling really good about myself. And despite the low points I’ve had recently, tonight I’m going to a concert that I’ve been anticipating since November, so tonight, I’m on a high. So here I am, being silly and loving myself.


So, I’m 30; Now What??

Now that I’m officially “in my 30’s” I have felt a very blatant and noticeable shift in my perspective and energy. I feel the strong desire to make some hard decisions about my life and where it’s going. I’m not sure if it’s just the aura of the new age; however, I am feeling my “get ish done” mode being turned up to overdrive in a matter of days.

There have been so many things on a personal level that crossed my mind as I reflected on turning 30. Things I either need to sit and talk about with my husband, or just things that I feel need to change within myself.

As the days continue to pass and I embark on this new chapter, one thing I hope to see in my life is a manifestation and growth of new and exciting opportunities, life changes not only for myself, but for my family, expansion, business ventures, maybe even a change of scenery. Who knows; but what I do know is I’m ready and waiting for what great things will come my way!

Self-Care Sunday Highlight: Making Lemonade

This may sound kind of crazy, but I want to touch on how making life’s lemons into lemonade can be a form of self-care; or at least how we need to start living life with this mentality.

How many of us stress about how life isn’t perfect? *raises hand in shame* exactly, me too! As soon as something doesn’t go the way it’s planned for me, I immediately go into a panic and my attitude goes into total defeat mode. I admit at times I’m not the best at my own advice in seeking optimism, so I have to remember this age-old quote:

Life will never be perfect (how many times do we have to tell ourselves this?? Lol).  I’ve come to live with that fact for a long time now.  There are times when I want life to go a certain way, and it goes completely left. To that I say, Beyoncé is not the only one out here making lemonade.  We have to be prepared to make the best out of what life gives us; sometimes, it’s the only way to move on.

Some of us deal with trying times a lot, and it feels like there are no good days in sight; but it’s our faith and determination that keeps us motivated to turn it all around for the good. And hey, once we decide that we are going to make the best out of a bad situation, sometimes things turn out better than we ever imagined them to be when we sit back and deal with what we’ve got in front of us.

This week, give this concept a try.  Turns out, some of life’s difficult situation can turn out to be a little sweeter in the long run if you put your mind to it and let them. 🙂

#50Days50Questions: Big Money Dreams

If I had a million dollars, how would I spend it?

With that much money, I have no clue. Lol.

I know I would obviously pay off unnecessary debt, save money for my daughter's future, buy a nicer car and a really nice house.

Other than that, I have no earthly idea what I would really do with all that money.


Always Remember Life Gets Better 

I read this affirmation this morning:

“My life is getting better everyday”

So many times we let the negative things get in the way of the simple fact that waking up in the morning gives us the opportunity to do better than we did the day before.  We let yesterday’s struggles flow into the next day and the next and soon our entire week, month or entire year can be tainted by one day of negativity.  If we adapt the mindset that our life gets better daily, imagine what could be possible in our lives….
