This has been a whirlwind of a year emotionally. I was listening to a podcast and the speaker referred to year 2020 as the “sacred pause”. Hmmmmmm, did you pause this year?
Covid brought the entire world to a halt. Businesses, schools, employment, social life immediately came to an end. We were forced to slow down, reflect and be intentional. There was time for relationships, time for communication, time for family, time to grow your business, time to workout, time to grow spiritually and more.
I believe everyone experienced some sort of a sacred pause (even if they didn’t want to) because these past months created a lot of time and opportunity for reflection and soul searching.
What changed for you as a result of the pause?
Now what’s next? How can we bounce back and still remain productive this year?
As we close out this quarter and begin to close out 2020 there are “2” very important things that you should focus on end the year strong:
Practice gratitude daily- think about how fast the world shut down in a blink of an eye. Think about where you are now and practice gratitude. In every obstacle or situation something always comes out of it. What is it for you? Be grateful! Speak it! Write it! Share it!
Stop 🛑 procrastinating! – we lost a legendary actor “T-Challa”, “ Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman amongst many others lives this year. Chadwick silently battled cancer for 4 years since the Black Panther movie and continued to make movies, appearances etc. What is holding you back? What would you do if you knew you only had the next 4 years to live. What would you fight to accomplish? What relationships would you mend? What would you launch?
Practicing gratitude and constantly staying in action will not only help you to focus on what matters but will ensure you stay productive and no longer just “busy”.
Make it a safe yet fun Labor Day!
P.S. What came to light for you over these past months?? Hit Reply and comment- I would love to read your responses.
It certainly has been one heck of a year. We are currently in July with less than 6 months to go in 2020 and it has been quite eventful.
One thing I can say for sure is that the pandemic and the recent events with George Floyd and many others have really provided an opportunity for the world to be still and open our eyes to see what’s really going on around us.
The pandemic has certainly slowed me down and re-shifted my focus. It made me really think about the things that are truly important like prayer and time with family. As a front-line worker I surely had to pray for my safety and that of my family multiple times a day.
Although I was still busy with work, I actually spoke with more people over the phone, connected with folks more than ever, and had more family time. I mean the hustle and bustle stopped! 🛑
Vanity certainly went out the window for me along with many others with the closing of barbershops, beauty salons, nail salons, gyms etc. and my husband became a gourmet chef.
These enduring times really helped me to realize one thing and one thing for sure, there are a lot of things I can truly do without that I thought I needed and what I thought I didn’t need or didn’t have time for I truly did need.
What about you?
What is the one thing you learned during this pandemic?
Hit reply and share with me. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Next week I will share more about how being clear on my gifts and talents made room for a promotion during the pandemic.
Today is the day to celebrate all moms, god moms, aunties, grandmothers and those who love and take care of others as a mom. While one day is not enough to thank mothers for everything they do, Mother’s Day is a good place to start. Make sure you do something special for yourself as well today! Enjoy, Stay Healthy & Safe!
Doubts’ ultimate goal is to stop you in your tracks and prevent you from even getting started.
Doubt tricks you into making excuses and believing, you are not worthy, you’re not good enough, you don’t know enough , you don’t have enough, it’s too expensive etc. I certainly have experienced many of these feelings at various stages of my life especially as I embarked upon new challenges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ultimately, I found that there were 2 simple things that I had to do in order to overcome my limiting beliefs and self doubts and they were:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reflect on all my past wins, what they were and how I overcame and succeeded in the past. This helped me to confirm that “ I Am More than Capable” and if I did it before I can certainly do it again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Venture beyond my comfort zone to try new things and opportunities often. By taking action despite my fears and self doubts helped me to take the necessary steps to overcome and manifest my dreams and goals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These 2 simple steps was the ammunition I needed to push past the mess in my head and alter my belief system in order to accomplish my goals.
Until Next Time

The mind can play some serious tricks on you. It can cause you to doubt your ability, power and your dreams!
Here are 3 tips for keeping your mind right and goals tight:
1. Read!! Knowledge is key.
The more you know the more you grow. As you gain more knowledge you gain more confidence in your area of expertise and it leaves less room for doubt. Not only can we learn from the successes of other entrepreneurs but we can also learn a huge amount fromNot only can we learn from the successes of other entrepreneurs but we can also learn a huge amount fromtheir failures as well.
2. Personal Development.
Personal development is a lifelong pursuit because we always have room to grow. You must have the desire to and be open to learning and growing. Personal development helps you to gain more confidence and strengthen your beliefs. You can learn from others that have accomplished the same and more. Investing in trainings, workshops, conferences, READING ( #1) are keys to your overall growth. Either way you must invest in your personal development.
3. Which should be number one…Prayer 🙏🏾!
Prayer changes everything. Pray to eliminate your negative thoughts and distractions. Reach deep inside to access the power of praying in order to change your thoughts, and ultimately your life. Prayer is a two-way communication with your highest power (for me it’s GOD). When we tap into his resources by faith and pray, miracles happen.
When in doubt, pray!
When afraid, pray!
When worried, pray!
When in trouble, pray!
Prayer, reading and professional development will help you to become more knowledgeable and confident which helps you to be more focused and productive.
Did you know that many popular household cleaners are dangerously toxic?
December has been such a busy month for me. I just celebrated a major milestone…..40 and Fabulous. I celebrated with an awesome dinner with close family and friends and then on a 5 day cruise with hubby to spend on some amazing beaches. Celebrated an amazing Christmas with family and hope you did as well.
The New Year is quickly approaching so I decided to not only make some changes in my diet to recover from my birthday and Christmas but to make a huge change from the products I currently use in my home and expose myself and my family to.
I was introduced to some frightening facts about the products I use and love in my home.
Did you know that:
Weekly use of home cleaning products is as damaging to the lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day?
Women who clean at home or work are affected with respiratory illness more than men.
Women who regularly use cleaning products have increased risks of asthma.
The average household contains about 62 toxic chemicals.
Toxic chemicals in conventional household cleaners vary in their severity – from acute (immediate) hazards such as skin or respiratory issues, chemical burns or watery eyes to chronic (long-term) hazards such as cancer, fertility issues, ADHD, compromised immune system and more.1
There is not one “natural” or pure plant-based ingredient in tide except for water. Every other ingredient is either a carcinogen, or irritant to the lungs or skin.
I found one company that offers a proven, affordable solution that is a leader in the market today. These scientists formulated cleaning products replace your common brand effectively and safely so that no child proof caps are required.
I am so excited to be introduced to this online wellness club and the ability to know that from today and beyond I will be ensuring that my home is a safer, non-toxic and healthier environment for myself and my family. This is one of my Health goals for 2019.
Click here to set aside some time to chat with me to know more about the alternative I chose and how you can qualify for $100 in free products to try out.
Happy New Year!

Going from ordinary to extraordinary means you are living with gratitude.
You are spending your days excited about your life and your future. You are living from a place of love, enthusiasm, and gratefulness.
The seeds of discouragement cannot take root in a grateful heart.
Celebrate every win that happens no matter how small and be extremely grateful for them.
When you stay grateful you are focusing on what is going right in your life and not whats going wrong. Shield yourself from the attack of the enemy by remaining in a grateful state.
There is much to be thankful for, and so many others that don’t get the same opportunities or simply don’t take advantage of them. The opportunities are there for everyone, but many don’t take them as they are afraid of doing that little bit extra and they don’t believe they deserve it.
Being thankful that you were able to overcome , and being enthusiastic in the fact that you can show others how easy it can be creates a space for you to be extraordinary and of value.
You can be the light that helps them find the way to their dreams becoming a reality, simply through your testimony.
Being grateful contributes to you being extraordinary.
Until next time…..

If you are on the East Coast then you are definitely experiencing this 95+ degree heat.
Here are a few tips on how to make it through this heat wave
1. Avoid alcohol and sugary beverages! These extremely dehydrate the body
2. Eat fruits and veggies. They have natural water in them which can help to maintain hydration.
3. Stay indoors in a cool area as much as possible. Do most of your activity after sundown if possible.
4. TMI……… but monitor the color of your urine. The darker and more concentrate it is the more water you need to drink.
5. Of course…..Drink lots of water to prevent being thirsty. Signs of thirst may be signs of dehydration. Water is also good for maintaining body temp and circulation. If water is bland try adding flavors to your water. I use Mango Passion Hydrate in my water to not get bored with it. This not only quenches my thirst but provides me with the essential nutrients and electrolytes I need that I lose throughout the day through this heat wave.
Click Here to try some Hydrate for yourself and ensure you are staying hydrated through this heatwave and rest of the summer.

In the Bible there is great story about the Israelites and the promise that God gave them. A promise of prosperity in a land of milk and honey. This journey was supposed to take 40 days but instead it took 40 years. One important thing is that during the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness God still provided quail and manna.
Check this out…..God has promised you something, he knows it will take you some time to finish but it is taking much longer because of your lack of faith, uncertainty and fears. You will not take a leap of faith, go full force to achieve what God has promised because you are comfortable with the provision. Just like the Israelites, God is still providing for you as you wander in the wilderness.
He has great things for you but you’re still satisfied in the wilderness. What will it take for you to receive the promise of prosperity in the land of milk and honey? What will it take for you to blow through those goals and the vision God gave you?
He just doesn’t want to provide for you, he wants to do exceedingly and abundantly above all you can ask or think but……….your comfortable in the small provisions.
Don’t allow yourself to take 40 years to accomplish what God has promised you in 40 days.
Here are three things you can do now to accomplish your goals timely:
Have Faith – You don’t need a lot…the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain. As long as you have it make a decision to move forward to accomplish your goals.
Take consistent Action- Faith without works is dead. You must take consistent action in faith knowing that if you take the first step God has the rest. Be consistent.
Take the land- Act as if you have ready received it. What does it look like? How do you feel once accomplished? Who will benefit the most and what will they say? What will the testimonies be? Who will you become in the process.
Again, your 40 day journey should not take you 40 years. Just like the Israelites, you are fully equipped and have everything that you need to be successful and accomplish your goals.
