Did you ever wake up in the moring unmotivated? Uninspired? Meanwhile you’re brushing your teeth, showering , and getting ready to go to work. Thinking to yourself how did I get here? How did I get so lost in everyday life, that I forgot to live? My question to you is, how did you get there? Now I want you to think real hard about this. Do Not rush to a quick conclusion. Do not play the blame game. Really sit and think to yourself, why.
For me it was fear. It was laziness. It was, I didnt want to change my habits. And worst of all, it was comfortability (yes the big gun) . I always knew my purpose. God had given me a vision years ago. Of owning a clothing store. Starting a youtube channel, and working for myself. All new year resolutions. You see year after year, I said this year I’m going to finally do it! And did I? If you answered no, then you are correct. I was so scared. I was so comfortable in my everyday life, I didnt want to be shaken. And truth be told I was pure lazy. Movies and snacks was my happy place. And unfuffilled and unhappy was my life.
It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom. And had to fight for the life I wanted. Did I realize I was only hurting myself. When I chose to be lazy. Chose to not even try. When I chose to be afraid. See we all get choices in life. And everyday we get to choose the life and day we are going to have. Me after I picked myself up. Everyday I choose to fight and dream another day. What are you going to choose tomorrow? And the next day? And the next? I hope you choose to pull out the book you have your dreams written on. I hope you decide to work out. I hope you decide to go back to school. I hope you decide to open that business. I hope you decide to dream again. I hope you decide to have faith in yourself. Because you’re awesome. And to the women espeially, I hope you choose YOU. I hope you decide to Walk In Purpose!
I don’t know about you guys but I love clothing shopping. But I also love to buy pieces that can be used multiple times.We all have that one dresst that we wore, and if we wore it again, everyone would notice! So it sits in the closet, and eventually ends up never being used again. So I decide to show a way that one set can be worn many times, and different ways. And guess what? No one would ever notice that it’s one set. So look in your closet, and get to mixing and matching!
As this year came and is passing by, it has shaken most of us. For me it has set me on a path of giving up fear. It has shown me that we don’t have forever. So whatever dreams, and passions, we are choosing not to pursue. In the present because of whatever nonsense we have told ourselves. It really doesnt matter at all!! If there is one person who is going to be dissapointed it’s you. No one will ever be more hurt and less alive than you. If you don’t start to live the life you envision in your mind.
All I want you to see is that the most important person you have to prove something to is YOURSELF. In everything you do Make Yourself Proud. Forget about proving something to your family, friends, spouse, or kids. And prove to yourself that you’re passions are worth pursuing. And the life you want is worth the fight. And when you do. Give yourself the standing ovation.
Thanks for listening! Wake, Pray, & Slay Your Day!
Someone wrote a quote once that said “Feel the Fear, And Do It Anyway”
Easier said then done right? But one thing I have learned is, if you want to be free you will have to feel the fear, and then do it afraid. I recently just opened my online clothing store Faith & Fashion Boutique. Palms sweaty, my heart beating insanely fast. I literally thought I was going to pass out. But I hit launch despite it all! The scariest part of all is the unknown future.
I have no idea if Faith & Fashion will succeed. I have no crystal ball telling me this was the best decision of my life. But I know without a doubt if I hadn’t leaped, I would still be trapped. I would be bound by fear. And that is worse than my business not ever making a single dollar. Which it has ! I have already broken even and on to profts! I hoped this inspired you to leap. To stop doubting YOURSELF. And to take control of your life. Jump, knees shaking, and afraid. But promise me one thing. Promise me YOU WILL JUMP!
Be BOLD in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire. I wish I could count on my hand the many times I let fear stop me from pursuing my dreams. I could count endlessly. ( seriously it’s prob in the millions). But the moment I decided to feel the fear and do it anyway, is the moment I started to live! And have never looked back since. Please do me and the world a favor. Decide to chase after the life you want and no matter what happens. You Never Stop.
Have you ever needed something to wear? And thought to yourself you have nothing in your closet that you havent already worn. Here’s a way to shop a look that can be worn in many different ways. This is a 2 piece set that I paired with items I already had in my closet. So instead of spending money on one look and thats it. You can be intentional when shopping. You can shop a look that is versataile, and trendy, and won’t break the bank. But instead help you save money in the long run.
Be yourself, and let the world see your magic.Your spirit is magical and, your gifts are undeniable. Do not hide who you are. The world needs you to fill it up with your true essence. Quit hiding your magic. Captivate the world with YOU.
