“| O N E D A Y | you will look back on days like this and be so glad that you chose to be faithful. You will be so glad you gave your everything, even before you knew what would happen. You’ll be glad you chose to love and were fearless in doing so, because you will be able to look at your life and see how much it helped you grow. You’ll be glad you extended grace, even when the world said you didn’t have to, because you will see that it made you stronger than you ever thought you would be. You will look back and see that after all that went wrong and all that went right, through the mountains and valleys, you were guided by the Light, and no amount of darkness could pull you away from your purpose in life...and nothing that had happened could stop you from being led to where you were always meant to be.” - (absolutely LOVING these beautiful words from @morganharpernichols ) 💛💛💛
The theme of my church’s sermon series is about being expectant of God during the Christmas season. I remember always obviously celebrating the Christmas season, but not always seeing Jesus in it. ⠀ .⠀ Maybe it’s because I couldn’t see Jesus at all because I didn’t know where to find him in my life. To me, God was an indifferent figure in the sky. To me back then, He could hear and see, but He couldn’t speak or show me things. ⠀ .⠀ So I filled myself with things that felt audible, and tangible. Those things fed my ego. Those things gave me a false sense of comfort and usually would leave as quickly as they came. But, I loved those things because they validated the girl in me who just wanted attention. ⠀ .⠀ One day one of those things failed me, and for some reason I prayed that God would bring it back. I don’t know why I prayed, since again, I didn’t think God could speak. But, I honestly believe it’s because God places in all of His creation whether they worship Him or not the reality that not only does He exist, but only He can truly change things. ⠀ .⠀ God allowed that thing to come back. He also allowed all the other things I desired to return, but this time they wrecked me emotionally. I didn’t feel comfortable any longer with living beneath myself.⠀ .⠀ That is how God initially spoke to me. He used my own choices to show me that I’m actually chosen. If you’re uncomfortable with how you live and with the people you’re doing life with- that’s God speaking to your spirit. God often has you hear Him in the places where you know you’ve wanted Him to be absent in. He’s speaking. He’s seeing. Are you listening? Are you looking?
Even a fabulous and busy Dr./Mommy/Blogger has read my book and feels a little bit more inspired about being intentional about her self care! Thank you @drkiarraking ! : : #themommybreakprojectbook : : #repost @drkiarraking with @get_repost ・・・ MUST READ...What’s the last good book you read? Do you like real books or e-versions? . . I used to be an AVID reader. Like up until the wee hours, falling asleep with the light on and then waking back up to read where I left off, avid lol! Summers would go buy and I would try and find the longest books to see how fast I could read them. . . But then life happened and I didn’t make time to read for pleasure. I read medical books and journals, still do. . . I met, well became reacquainted with, Nicole Walker founder of @themommybreakproject. We studied at the University of Michigan together. She just released her book The Mommy Break Project; A Self Care Manifesto, in which she chronicles her 52 week journey to self care. She took some form of a self care break each week for a year! I highly suggest it, it’s a quick and easy read and may strike a nerve for us mommas who often don’t make ourselves a priority. Please head over and FOLLOW her page, @themommybreakproject, for some inspiration on how to jumpstart getting some time for yourself! . . I am committed to making #selfcare a priority as we close out 2018 and head into 2019. If you’ve been following my stories then you know that I’m getting my #skincare together with @cataraspa and am reclaiming my time from shaving with @lapiellasercenter! I’d love to get back to reading for pleasure, I’ll see how that goes! I have a few other things up my sleeve that I’m planning to incorporate into my self care routine!! Of course I’m taking you all along for the ride! Do you already make time for yourself? If not what are you waiting for, do it today! . . . . . . . . . . . . #wellness#healthandwellness#themommybreakproject#whatadoctorlookslike#mommyblog
Happy Sunday folks 😃. #sunday’slesson “ Peace is not the absence of trouble but the presence of the Holy Spirit breathe into our circumstances” How revolutionary.

As 2018 comes to a close, I’m so ready to step in 2019. ⠀⠀ This year I learned so much about myself. It was hard. I have also grown so much more as a woman. I learned my personal style. I learned a lot about my worth, lost people, dealt with depression, anxiety etc, & again, realized ALOT about myself. They say 8 is the year of revelation, & it was definitely that for me ⠀⠀ Above that, i am proud of myself. I’m proud that when I say I’m gonna do something, I do it. I’ve always said I wanted to have a fashion/online store, and had been putting it off for years, but this year i said not another year. Take that leap of faith, start small. Use the money you make to go back into the business & get more stuff to sell, & keep going. Then I found another online business involving haircare that I’m doing. My YouTube channel is growing, slowly but surely. Getting recognized by brands, more followers on IG, & that’s not important, BUT being a social media influencer is what I wanna do the rest of my life. ⠀⠀ Im excited to see what is in store for me in 2019, and I’m not gonna spend New Years writing resolutions, because you should be doing that all year and not just one day, but I’m definitely setting goals, continuing to renew my mind, gain wealth & accomplish more goals! You can do the same. 2018 doesn’t have to be yet another year of being broke, depressed, stuck in the same ol rat race if you don’t want it to be, but you gotta change first before any of your circumstances change. ⠀⠀ what is 1 thing 2018 has taught you?!

I love the word REMOVE because it tells me that I have another chance to get things right for myself by eliminating something of someone in my life which no longer serves my purpose! I have not only learned to remove- but to also be wise in the process!
Brow Shape & Fill by @_spazcp ✅ Service Review: @_spazcp was definitely one of the best brow shaping experiences I’ve had because all I had to say was I want the look of thicker eyebrows and she understood. My brows naturally are thin in comparison to the queen of brows Zendaya 😫 but I grow them out in between getting them shaped because most techs end up shaping them way too much and it ends up being exactly what I didn’t want. At @_spazcp I was in a spa room by myself which felt so luxury at an amazing price! I would definitely recommend this nearly pain free service to anyone looking for someone they can TRUST with their brows. Check out her December Savings!!
