No matter how big the obstacle, or how rough the road may appear… you have everything you need to FLOURISH in this season! Stop letting fear cripple you! Bring that dream to fruition! Go after what you’ve always dreamed of becoming with every fiber in your being!
Flourish and thrive 💜
Every morning when you wake up, command the atmosphere around you! Despite what may have happened yesterday, today is a new day! You have a choice. You can either speak life, or speak death over your situation. Why not choose life! Expect God to do the impossible…the incredible! He can mend your broken heart, open that closed door, and give you a new perspective! Align yourself with God’s will for your life, and watch Him do magnificent things in your life! Expect it!
After you’ve commanded your morning, and have aligned yourself with God’s will, get up and get dressed like you know who you are! I’ve said this before and it’s worth repeating… You can look “fabulous”, dress well and still live a life of holiness! Oh, yes you can! You can wear your heels, beat your face, and “slay” all while being a reflection of the King! Indeed, God is most concerned with the matters of our heart, and that should be top priority for us as His daughters! Just know… it’s OK to SLAY while we serve our Savior! Put on your best, and slay the day!
Your mind is at peace, your heart is ready, and you’ve adorned yourself accordingly! Now, it’s time to walk it out, and conquer your day! Whether you’re on your way to work, a conference, or preparing to give a presentation… go in there like you run the show! Determine that no matter what happens, this is your day. Celebrate your victories, and learn from your challenges! Hold your head up high, and spread the light with those who need it most. Speak, empower, smile, and slay as you walk through your sphere of influence! You can never sparkle too bright! The Day is yours, so own it!
Slay, Like you Mean it!
The world is waiting!
As a newlywed, a lot of people have an opinion about what my husband and I “should/shouldn’t do”, especially with regards to our first married year/holidays together. Nothing malicious at all, just opinions that caused a great deal of pressure. I got caught up at first. Then it dawned on me; this is our life and we will live it as we please! Some of you may have experience this same pressure. You may have certain goals and aspirations in mind, and you’re trying to handle all the uninvited opinions that other have for your life. So I’ve decided to share what I’ve learned to do, and I hope it helps you as well:
1. Hold your peace: Peace of mind is more important than the best of clap-backs! Some opinions aren’t even worth entertaining, especially when they come without provocation. It’s one thing to go to a trusted source, and ask them to dissect your life. When that’s the case, then I expect them to let me have it. Dig deep and help me get my life in order. However, if I didn’t ask and it is not worth a response, I simply don’t entertain it. Especially when I know they don’t have my best interest in mind.
2. Use your words: If you feel the need to respond, put your words to good use and create a standard response. Here are two of my favorites: “It’s unfortunate that your feelings differ from how I plan to live my life”, and “No, I don’t plan to do it that way, but I appreciate your concern”. Feel free to use at will, and proceed to exit stage left.
3. Don’t tell everything you know: This is probably one of the most important lessons I’ve learned! Keep your personal life, marriage, goals and aspirations under lock and key. Yes, we all need accountability, but take a break from posting and sharing every detail of your life and hustle. Hustle in private, enlist the help of an accountability partner/mentor, and let the results of your labor do all of the bragging. The less you share, the less access people have to your life. If people don’t know what you’re up to, then they won’t have an opportunity to create an opinion.
This is your time. This is your year! Make it count!

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

I would often ask myself this question whenever someone didn’t seem to “click” with me. I mean how can you not “like” me? I’m a ball of sunshine with a touch of honey! *Flips crochet* Lol!
Well I have FINALLY come to the realization that not everyone will be my best friend, or my biggest advocate. Not everyone will “get” me, and quite frankly, not everyone will smile when I walk their way! No need to waste time putting a label on it. Sometimes it just is what it is, and that’s OK! No longer will I worry about who doesn’t like me, nor will I worry about trying to make them. I will move forward and live my fabulous life!
You may have just met someone, or may have been trying to connect with a new friend/mentor, and it just hasn’t worked out! Don’t feed into those distracting thoughts that try to convince you that there is something wrong with you… No! You are just right the way God made you!
Everyone won’t be your biggest fan and that’s OK…
Be kind and LIVE ON!
