The ability to travel the world with people you love, do what you're passionate about, share wisdom to change lives and be grateful for every moment became my reality through walking by faith. Faith is a process in which we learn to trust God.

I've come a long way from the quiet little girl from the hood. Paris is quite a way across the pond.

Over the years people told me to my face and talked behind my back about what I COULD NOT do. There was always a loud voice in my spirit that said "WATCH ME". I'm not here to please people. I'm interested in pleasing God. Their "NO" has nothing to do with His "YES". It shall be done.
Stop listening to the voices outside of you. It will limit the heights you elevate to and where you dare to travel. Your promotion is in God's hands. No one else's!

I appreciate the love and concern you all have shown me for the rough day I had this week. My phone was blowing up and I'm not accepting long distance calls from the other side of the world to focus on what I don't want. I'm creating moments I do want. I promise you I'm good. Gods got me.
A rough moment doesn't need to become a rough day. A rough day doesn't need to become a rough week. A rough week doesn't need to turn into a rough life. When you get into a rut ask yourself: "Is it a rough life or a rough moment that I keep milking over and over again in my head?" #paris

It's an honor to serve 💖

Truth moment:
Yesterday was not a good day for me. I wasted most of the day in my bed heartbroken and in tears. Life happens. I had a moment where life seemed overwhelming and I felt spiritually under attack.
I don't watch the news but God made sure the news got to me attack against the lives of children happened in Manchester. Many lives lost and millions more on this planet are living with fear/anger/hate in their hearts. It put my minuscule problems into perspective.
I woke up early this morning and had a conversation with God. I made a conscious choice to find joy, make new friends, do a random act of kindness and remember that love still exists...even when we don't see it.

When your life is filled with so many highs it comes with equal levels of lows. When I'm too in my feelings to listen God sends messengers. In my attempt to quietly learn the lesson God is trying to teach me right now so I can evolve I received a message today that blessed me from a woman I'm connected to on Facebook: "Sometimes our winter season seems to come back or linger when it's supposed to be spring. You know when you get the unexpected blast of snow in MAY. Well, even though the unexpected comes on us, we are still in spring. I feel your pain --- I don't know --- lately that is happening to me --- feeling people's pain. However, God has you Makini! He surely has you. You have endured pain before and it birth your purpose. This---whatever "this" is --- it's the beginning of a new level. For your purpose is birth from every pain and your destiny is being shaped through it all. You are not alone -- even when you are by yourself--for the angels of the Lord have been assigned to surround you and to bear you up during your moment of weakness for His strength is made perfect in your weakness."
I know her words are not only for me so I share them with whomever else needed these words. Be blessed 🙏🏾 #motivationmonday

Purple is the color of
the imagination and spirituality
💜💜💜💜💜 I got on the plane and they changed the lighting to purple. Instantly my anxiety left me and I said a prayer. God was telling me all is well.
The color purple relates to the imagination and spirituality. It stimulates the imagination and inspires high ideals. It is an introspective color, allowing us to get in touch with our deeper thoughts.

The difference between violet and purple is that violet appears in the visible light spectrum, or rainbow, whereas purple is simply a mix of red and blue. Violet has the highest vibration in the visible spectrum.

While the violet is not quite as intense as purple, its essence is similar. Generally the names are interchangeable and the meaning of the colors is similar. Both contain the energy and strength of red with the spirituality and integrity of blue. This is the union of body and soul creating a balance between our physical and our spiritual energies.

You can be ashamed of your story or you can own it. You can allow it to be your secret that sits in the shadows or you can use it as your testimony to shed light in this world.
Writing a book didn't make me rich. It's what I do with it that adds richness to my life. We're off to Paris to break more glass ceilings, make more memories and LIVE as God intended for us all 💜

You might think that all the glory a diamond gets is because of light, but what you don’t know is that the dark areas of a diamond also play an important role. The combination of perfection and flaws makes the diamond sparkle 💎
