On January 5, 2012, I started my blog… Blogging is something I’ve wanted to do for years, but the timing wasn’t right. I had many lessons to learn beforehand. I’m a ceative person and I could only give 100% or none at all. After many personal difficulties and uncertainties, I have risen like the stately phoenix through the ashes and am now spreading my beautiful wings. The few who know me personally, know exactly why I say that. To have gone through and come out the other side of my personal trials, only God Himself has caused me to be here today.
I want to thank the people who truly stuck by me, listening to me through my tears, anger and everything in between; who encouraged me and told me I would rise. I could not have done it without you.
I want to thank those who did not have my best interests at heart, because of you, I learned so much and came out even stronger, again, thank you… Mwah. After going through the worst, I am able to see the positive and beauty in life and truly embrace it. Every single day counts!!! As one of my personal tag lines says: Embrace Yourself!
The intention of my blog, is to Uplift, Embrace, Entertain, Educate and Shop (can’t forget shopping!) with style and grace, and hopefully bring sparkling rays of sunshine to your day. Sharing exciting and noteworthy items with you daily is my goal. This is a place where you’ll always be able to walk away with a little something. It’s about the sisterhood of women, black, white, pink or green, moving forward in their heels or flats; like the divas that you truly are.
Every day at 1pm this quote pops up on my iPhone/iPad: I am bountiful, I am blissful, I am beautiful – Tell yourself that every day! I have a series of motivational quotes starting at 6 a.m. which pop up throughout the day to remind me of how blessed I am.
I also want to thank my new blog family, experienced and new, especially @thelookbookphilosophy and @beautypulselondon who embraced me early on. Also thanks to my Instagram and Facebook friends for stopping by daily and supporting me, all of you always giving me words of encouragement. I can’t thank you all enough for your likes, shares, and comments. This blog is as much yours as it is mine, that’s why I try to make it as interactive as possible.
Please try to remember, no matter how bad things get… you will come through, you will rise to go unto bigger and better things… I did!
Have God in your life, through Him, all things are possible!!
Much love & light!
