Sometimes they assume you're soft because of your morals and beliefs. Sometimes they will try to take advantage of your goodness.
Don't be afraid to let them know that doesn't mean you are weak.
God is the original G. My backup game heavy. Don't play! πŸ’πŸΎ

Tomorrow the sun will rise as it always does. It can't rain forever. Whatever the situation you are currently dealing with right now just know that it is only temporary. The sun will rise again. β˜€οΈ

If you had to name 2017 with a theme based on how your year is going what would you call it?

2017 consisted of INTENSE highs and lows. I began the year labeling my theme PASSION but I'd like to change it. Change is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
What's your theme word?

Today's affirmation:
If you believe it type "Amen"

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

In an interview with @sheldonneil I was asked how my relationship with God comes into play with what I do.
You can't pour from an empty cup. You can't give what you don't have. God is my source and foundation.

"Have faith in your abilities. Believe in yourself!" Excerpt from page 17 of @awalkinmystilettos

Throwback to last summer. Had to hop on a plane for a getaway with my son. Definitely in need of a recharge right now. Any suggestions for a beach vacation?
It's like pulling teeth getting my son to take pics these days. He doesn't like attention. Thank God he doesn't have social media or he'd be upset that I've posted him. πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Honored to be featured in the WOMEN EMPOWERED section of this weeks edition of TORONTO CARIBBEAN NEWSPAPER.
Growing up in government housing and watching my mother work her behind off to purchase our first home when I was in the 5th grade didn't mean much to me then. I had to grow an appreciation for her perseverance and faith. It's molded me to be the same.
Today people assume this polished, soft spoken yet strong minded woman was raised in money or that things came easy. I'm quick to let people know where I've come from and what I've experienced. I know who I am and whose I am. I don't care about opinions others have of me. I don't need validation from other people. With that mindset comes judgement and ridicule but I'll take it.
I've built a personal brand on the transparency and authenticity of my journey. The good, bad and ugly of my past has made the beauty I see when I look in the mirror today. It's been a blessing to have the opportunity to be featured on local, national and international media more times than I can count over the last couple of years. Sharing parts of me has opened doors mentally, spiritually and physically for others so for that I'm truly grateful.
It's an honor to show others what's possible. To be a lighthouse and lead by example isn't easy. You can teach anything you want but the wisdom from experience gives you authority.
Use your mess as your message. Success builds confidence but struggle will keep you humble. When they see your success growing and ask "Who do you think you are?" you can boldly say "I AM _____________ (insert name)!"

To learn, we need to be curious. To lead, we need to have followers. To be strong, we need to be vulnerable. To give, we need to receive.

I'm somewhat obsessed with the color purple. It just makes me feel good. πŸ’œ
The color purple is specifically associated with royalty and the nobility, creating an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance.
Purple has power. It has a richness and quality to it that demands respect. Purple is ambitious. πŸ’œ
From a color psychology perspective, purple and violet promote harmony of the mind and the emotions, contributing to mental balance and stability, peace of mind, a link between the spiritual and the physical worlds, between thought and activity.
In the meaning of colors, purple and violet represent the future, the imagination and dreams, while spiritually calming the emotions. They inspire and enhance spiritual enlightenment, while, at the same time, keeping us grounded.
What's your happy color? What color are you drawn to? Or obsessed with?
