Let’s Talk | Mom life & getting “unstuck”

I’m super excited about this month’s cover stories!!

One of the main things I’m determined to do is to create a life that I love; a life that serves me!  A life that I can be proud of, where I am not only showing up for myself… but one where I am  becoming and fully embracing the woman I know God is calling me to be… yes, as a whole mom.

I know you feel the same. I know that you know you’re more than a mommy. I know you desire to rewrite the narrative,  and you want to live your absolute best life…. as a wife, a mom, a business owner… as a woman!

And as eager as you are to redefine mom life on your terms, and FINALLY create a life that excites you…

YOU. FEEL. STUCK.

You can’t seem to figure out how to finally move forward and embrace the beauty of who you know you want to become. You’re trying your best to show up, but you can’t seem to get past the disappointment of things not going as you expected.  You’ve even gotten to the point of trying to  force things to work out;  trying to keep up appearances because you want to prove that you can do it all… instead of operating in the flow and freedom that God has for you….

Well… It’s time to get unstuck and walk in the freedom that God has for you! I’m so grateful to be used by Him!

This month is all about getting “unstuck” and we’re starting with the basics! Because let me tell you this….You will never be able to create & live a life that excites you until you do this one thing!

So if you’re ready to walk in freedom, Check out my first July cover story (video) below, and as always be sure to comment, and share with a momma who needs this!

xx,

I beat my face 5 days last week, here’s what it taught me about mom life!

So if you’ve been following me on INSTAGRAM, then you may know that I made a commitment to myself to beat my face all week last week. I purchased some new makeup from one of my fave beauty brands, and decided to make time to do one of the things I absolutely love! Here is one of my fave looks from last week…

I had a BALL!!! Like, I got up every morning, had my coffee, did my devotional and MADE the time to do my makeup! Y’all  it was everything!

It’s so funny because as I was enjoying my daily beat,  I couldn’t help but remember when I first started doing my own makeup and the process I went through to learn how to do it correctly! And that’s when it hit me…

creating harmony and manifesting the life you desire as a mom is like beating my face!

Whether self taught or professionally trained,.. it takes being intentional to learn how to do it, but once you master it there is a flow! (Story time)

Let me take you back to 2010, when  I first starting doing my own makeup. I’d just accepted my new job as a manager at Macy’s, and I was finally ready to put in the work to learn. So, I went to the nearest Mac counter and purchased a little bit of everything.

I got home, and stood in front of my bathroom ready to SLAY.  I thought I could just start and everything would come together. Wrong! I had no clue what I was doing! Everyone I watched on YouTube, made it look so easy, but it wasn’t… for me! Y’all it was not pretty! My foundation didn’t match, my skin was breaking out… it was so bad!

After 3 weeks of unsuccessfully trying it on my own, I went back to return my products. Clearly they were the problem, not me!

Well that’s when Ms Margaret came to unknowingly save the day.🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

She helped me to understand why the products weren’t working for me, and quickly shifted to teach me what I needed to know to finally get it right! She explained the different types of foundations, how to use concealer, and even explained the importance of skin care and WASHING MY MAKEUP BRUSHES! It seemed so obvious, but I clearly needed someone to guide me in the right direction. 😭😭😭

I’m a pretty quick study so I took all that she showed me and tried again, and guess what? It actually made a difference!  My foundation actually matched, I created a skin care routine to avoid breakouts, and I even made the time to ensure my tools were cleaned and cared.  I’ve been mastering this skill, and routine over the years and well…  look at me now! Ayyyeee!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🔥🔥🔥🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

Well, the same is true for you momma…  just like I tried to pick up the art of makeup…. you may have tried to find “balance” and change your life, to no avail. And after 3 weeks/months/years of unsuccessfully trying it on your own… you’ve convinced yourself that “this just doesn’t work for me”! You may have even resolved to forfeit your promise of abundance, because “you’re a mom” and “this is just how it is”!

Well let me be your Ms Margaret! Allow me to show you that it is possible and what exactly you need to experience the transformation and abundance and life you desire! Because you, momma, CAN HAVE IT ALL!

I’m talking what you REALLY DESIRE…

✨MORE time with your loved ones
✨MORE intimacy in your marriage
✨MORE money in your bank account
✨MORE in every area that matters most to you!

I know you’re ready to not only witness what it looks like to have a bomb life as a whole mom, but you’re ready to redefine mom life on your terms, and finally create the life that excites you!

If you’re sick and tired of trying on your own, and don’t want to waste another moment, stuck in overwhelm and living a life that doesn’t serve you… and you’re finally ready to TAKE ACTION… Then I have EXACTLY what you’ve need!

Enrollment for my Mommy Masterclass, is now open! The only program uniquely designed millennial mommas who are ready to create and live a life that excites them, from the bedroom to the playroom… and everything that matters most in between! Click the image above or click here to learn more!

And momma, if nobody ever told you…

YOU DESERVE the life you DESIRE!

Every abundant promise, is yours! God isn’t holding anything back from you, and I’m here to help guide you to where overflow resides! Can’t wait!

“Lipstick Isn’t for Me”💋

I remember when I first started wearing makeup. I found the perfect foundation for my chocolatey complexion, and learned a bit about liner and mascara. Over time, and after countless YouTube videos and convos with my fellow makeup enthusiasts,  I finally got it right! Well, in all areas except for one… lipstick. Unlike my other skills, I only gave lipstick a good 5 tries, before I decided it wasn’t for me. I loved how it looked on others, but I just couldn’t figure it out. Lipstick on my teeth, lipstick on my fingers… legit, “smudge galore”!

I was completely done…

Until my  beautiful friend came along and got me all the way together. (You know who you are!)

We went out to lunch one day, and I happened to comment on how fabulous her lip color looked! She paused for a moment,  and asked “where is YOUR lipstick, friend”? I cringed a bit on the inside, and replied “Lipstick isn’t for me”.  She wasn’t buying it. She always commented on my bare lips, but this day was different.  She rolled her eyes, and pulled out her lipstick  collection. She went over different types of lipsticks, lip liners,  and finishes. Basically, she was encouraging me to give it another try. And I did just that! I went back to my vanity and tried again… and again… until I got it right!

LOOK AT ME NOW!

As I think of my makeup/lipstick journey, I can’t help but wonder… “what have I written off in my life, simply because I found it challenging and didn’t invest in the ‘know-how'”? Take a moment, and think about your own life.  Have you ever written something off, simply because you didn’t know how to do/use/perform it? You may have tried a few times, but things didn’t go as planned.  Now, you’re walking around dismissing opportunities and blessings because you’ve convinced yourself “this/that isn’t for me”, when in reality  you haven’t even put in the effort. Lord, help us all!

Today, I encourage you to try again!  I understand, we aren’t all gifted to do everything! But, as you read this post, something came to mind that you know  you need to revisit. It’s time to stop dismissing, and start refining. (I’m speaking to myself, here! Yassss!) Despite how challenging it may seem, go back and sit down at  your “vanity” and try again! Invest in the “know-how”, perfect your skills, and grab hold of every opportunity the Lord sends your way! 

Indeed, that great life IS for you!
