”Turning Pain Into Beautiful Possibilities”

2 years ago on this date I received my BA from Columbia College 😃👩🏽‍🎓I was so extremely proud, but so massively depressed! I hid it so well and couldn’t wait to get home and get back into my bed. I wanted to die and nobody understood, all they saw was the beautiful young woman going after her dreams!

Thank you to my friends who pushed and believed in me when I could have cared less. I am forever grateful for all of you!!! As I sit back and look at these pics, I can’t help but thank God, thank God for not giving up on me! He knew I had a purpose on this earth and I intend to use my talents to share my testimony!!! #youcandoit #idid #goafteryourdreams #cof2016 #koala

Mindset Monday…💞

#mindsetmonday

A lot of folks battle with the idea of being deserving. They feel that there’s something amiss about them. That’s why they feel they don’t deserve happiness, love, riches, you name it. Here are some things to avoid when trying to change your life and love yourself more. When you’re trying to feel you do deserve all the best.

1️⃣ Stave off equating yourself with other people, particularly if they have more than you of whatever. You’re unique and your situation doesn’t match anybody else’s. See yourself as an individual with your own exceptional range of influence, which you sincerely have.💪🏾

2️⃣ Stave off equating your present life with your life as a youngster. You were fundamentally powerless as a youngster, as is every child. What was then, when you were a youngster, doesn’t manipulate what can be when you’re fully grown.🙌🏾

3️⃣ Stave off damaging thinking. It’s said that individulas have between 50,000 and 60,000 thoughts per day – – most of them damaging. If most of your thoughts are damaging, and they’ll be unless you make a concerted effort to alter them, just think how you’re perpetuating negativity in your life.

Are You Getting All You Deserve?

Transformation Tuesday…..

We’ve all heard amazing stories of rags to riches stories, people who’ve turned their lives around and went from zero to hero. Yet, even as we marvel at their success, we never think that we are capable of such ourselves. It is such negative thinking that keeps us at our low-paying jobs, stuck in our crappy little apartments and in our mediocre lives. But we can change our lives, simply by harnessing the power of our minds, specifically the power of positive thinking.

Like all things in life, learning to turn negative thoughts into positive ones will take time, but the process itself is really quite simple.

• Stay fit and healthy. A healthy mind needs a healthy body to reside in. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one the fundamental ways to stay positive without any psychological involvement. Regular exercise is scientifically proven to elevate mood and reduce stress. A healthy diet is also essential – make sure you fuel your body with the right foods.

• Use positive affirmations. Many of us are our own worst enemies, constantly pulling ourselves down with negative self-talk. Encourage yourself with daily positive affirmations and drown out the voice of negativity.

• Choose your company well. Negativity, like positivity is contagious. Surround yourself with positive people who support you and avoid those who sap your energy and motivation with their relentless negativity.

• Smile! The simple act of smiling is physically proven to help you stay positive and make you happier Allow yourself to be open to humor, share a laugh with a neighbor or smile at the cashier when she rings up your purchases. You’ll be surprised at how good it’ll make you feel.

Practice these simple steps everyday and eventually you will find yourself breaking away from the chains of negativity. Start changing your life today😉

Monday Motivation…..

#mentormonday

#nomorefear

1️⃣Take time to wink 😉at the clouds. It’s very freeing and is an instant ticket to bravery.

2️⃣Let a smile 😄play on your lips. Expectancy centers the feeling of flight and makes us feel radically alive.

3️⃣Quit looking for the glaring holes of logic. Light up the night with warm cheeks. Searching for the perfect reason for everything is suppressing. Step out of your comfort zone. There’s power in excitement!

4️⃣Confirm signs of life in your breaths daily. Cuddle up to your morning yawn, feel the tickles in your ear, count your dimples, let the sun dab behind your ears. There’s more to your life than your fuzzy bedroom slippers and terry cloth robe.

5️⃣Laugh 🤣behind reality’s back and greet your imagination with open arms. Laughing at our thoughts is part of our fearless spirit. It brings out a presence in us that’s awakening.Lean in closely to your feelings. Don’t snub them. Feelings credential us as humans.

6️⃣Our emotions are warm with invitation. They’re the fire that dances in our soul. They’re our sense of place.

7️⃣Life rocks us in the cradle of doubtfulness. Remove fear from your agenda and accept the unknown with a sparkling in your eye.
