Saturday thoughts: What I’ve learned from Kendrick Lamar’s “Element.”


As I stated in my birthday recap post, hubby and I went to the “Damn.” concert, which starred my one of my favorite artists, Kendrick Lamar. The song Element has been weighing heavy on my mind and here is what I’ve learned….
When pursuing your passion feels discouraging
“You know careers take off, you just gotta be patient”. Patience, is the major key. We get excited about the possibility of what could be but we either compare ourselves to others or lack confidence. We all do this, but when do the excuses stop? When does being scared of success stop? We have to CONTINUE. Even if you move slow with your passion just don’t stop. 
Don’t let them take you out your Element
The enemy is moving quickly and working hard to take us off track. This is when self-doubt happens and those “little voices” tell us that it won’t work. Even if you have a moment of doubt, don’t let many see that. They will feed off of it and let’s face it, people are always “watching”. So, don’t miss a beat! 

Keep going Friends, you got this!!

Age is a state of mind baby


Hey great people,

Happy Monday to you! After having a conversation with the hubby, I’ve been really considering my position in life currently. Like you, I too, have many hopes and ambition. I catch myself saying “32 is around the corner”, constantly.  I’m also thinking, “age is a number” the value of knowledge to gain is more important. 

So, “age is a state of mind baby” will be my go to Motto. Lol. As long as we are given another chance at life, we have time to grow and improve. 

Take care peeps! Thanks for reading

Life is a Beach Chair

“Son said Hov, how get you so fly? I said from not being afraid to fall out the sky”

Hi great people!

This is a line from Jay Z’s song “beach chair”. 

This song has been on my mind a lot lately. I’ve been thinking about my own personal goals and struggles. It’s easy for us to encourage others and see their growth but sometimes we fall short on ours.

The song motivates me. It pulls all the emotions about my “Why?”. My purpose. What God is using me for in this life. If you never heard of it please do. Even if you are not a fan, concentrate on the message. 

I hope you have a good day!

Thanks for reading !

Motivate your Monday

Hi, great people! Thank you for stopping by! 

It’s President’s day and I’m off from work. Whenever I have time off, I tend to do a lot of thinking. I think about my goals in life, my family, my health and what steps I need to get there. 

What about you guys? Do you make goals for the week and find the time to execute them? Yes, we all get busy with Life but remember, your needs matter. We get wrapped into our families and jobs, but tend to forget ourselves. 

I encourage you to write down one of your goals. Share it with someone (that could be me 😊) and let them hold you accountable. Once you achieve it, I guarantee you will feel so proud of yourself.

Thanks for reading friends! Please feel free to follow me on my social media pages which are listed under “widgets”.

Because you Can


Why want more? Because you can. The journey of life is very unpredictable and it can have moments of confusion. I say to you, Don’t be confused about wanting MORE. Whatever it may be for you, keep your goals and follow your dreams. Lastly, don’t let anyone or anything get in your way, just do it. 

Thanks for reading friends! Remember, you are Great!

Our potential runs deep

Hi friends! Did you know that you were great?! I hope so!I need all my readers to understand that our potential runs deep and we can truly make powerful moves in our lives if we try. I know all about comfort zones and being scared. We can be scared of failure to the point that become our worst enemy and critic. Will everyone believe in us? No, but we need to believe in ourselves first. 

Just imagine, the day we take that leap and begin to live the life that we yearned for. We become successful and don’t look back. All the struggles will be a thing of the past and our work truly paid off. 
Can you see? Can you taste it? It’s there, we got this!

M.M: encouraging your loved ones to pursue their dreams, encourages you as well

Hi all! I hope you all had a good weekend. I want to Congratulate all the graduates! I’m so proud of the seniors graduating high school and higher education graduates. As many were giving congrats wishes to them, I paid attention to the people who made the decision to enter programs as well.

When your family and friends follow their dreams, it has an impact on you because you want to have that sense of pride that you accomplished your goals. That doesn’t have to mean attending college because college isn’t for all (academically and financially), but it’s taking the steps to do more with yourself. 
I tip my hat off to you all, I’m so happy! We are getting closer to our dreams and achieving our goals. Hold on and keep going!
