Complaining Is Too Easy #HurricaneIrma

Living in South Florida, we are still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Irma. Millions of people are still out of power and some have no water. I've watched people take to social media to complain about what they don't have over the past few days. Meanwhile, there are people who had their entires homes … Continue reading Complaining Is Too Easy #HurricaneIrma

5 Things to Change If You Want to Fulfill Purpose Series – Pt.1

My mentor once told me that my greatest strength and greatest weakness are the same. When I heard that I thought, um…that makes no sense at all. But then she said, “It’s your mind.” GASP! < mind blown > I am naturally very analytical and creative mentally. In a matter of seconds, I have thought … Continue reading 5 Things to Change If You Want to Fulfill Purpose Series – Pt.1

Just Say No

No. What is it about the word ‘no’ that makes people’s hearts drop a little? We don’t like the word ‘no’ and some of us have a hard time telling ourselves ‘no’. Why can’t I just eat that extra slice of chocolate cake although I’m working on eating healthier? Why can’t I buy that purse … Continue reading Just Say No

When It All Falls Apart

So I had a beautifully written post ready for today, and I mean it was just flowing. I'm happily typing away when this ugly little box pops up on my screen. Basically it said something along the lines of, "We're going to ruin everything you just worked so hard to create. Save?? What's save?! Naw … Continue reading When It All Falls Apart

Waiting With Grace

Raise your hand if you like waiting. (insert crickets) Yeah... I don't like waiting. I also don't like not knowing. I admit I’m a little nosy inquisitive. I like to know things! And yet here I am: waiting and not knowing. I claim I want to grow in my relationship with God and yet sometimes I forget that a part of any good relationship is trust. Trust…Yuck! (Read about my trust issues in my first blog post "Icebreaker from Hell".) Do I trust God to do what He said? What He promised? Ummm… ---Read More---

Chosen: You are Qualified

Ever felt unqualified? Like there's-just-no-way-I’ll-ever-be-selected-so-why-bother-even-trying unqualified? Why would the person who is short-tempered, impatient, unfriendly, blunt-borderline-brash with people be given the shot? That’s what I thought when God said He wanted to use me. “Are you sure you want me, God?” Because as a fellow blogger told me the other day...

Self-Care Pt.3 – Invest in Yourself Before You Wreck Yo’ Self

I always thought I loved myself...until one day I realized how little I invested into ME. If someone needed help with an idea they had, I'd spend hours researching, watching YouTube videos & reading articles on how to make it happen. I'd push, encourage and motivate them to do it, stretching the fibers of my brain with innovative methods of ways to reach their goal.  But when it came to my ideas, my dreams or goals...I was chillin'. I was investing into everyone else's purpose but my own.  Why?

Self-Care Pt.1: Take A Chill Pill!

According to society, by the age of 30, I should have been married with at least two kids a long time ago. I should be living in my beautiful home in a gated community with my handsome husband and 2.5 kids, all while killing it in my career and being a girl boss!  Well that just isn't my reality.  30 came and left and I have not met any of societies standards...
