Motivational Monday | Refocus & Prioritize

Welcome to a new post here on the blog and HELLO MAY! I wanted to touch base and follow-up on a vision board post I created at the top of the year with areas that I wanted to focus on. With a third of 2017 gone, it’s time to regroup, refocus, and see what areas need to become a priority.

Motivational Monday | Enjoy the Ride

My church has added a new monthly service geared at millennials. The purpose of the service is to simply bring back those that may have strayed away from regularly attending church, like myself, with an engaging service. After attending the first service, which was amazing, I wanted to share the topic of that night, “Enjoy the ride.”

Motivational Monday | Fear to Speak 

I was sucked into the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy this past Thursday. While I’m not completely in tune with the show I have a gist of it plus the characters. This episode in particular features Jackson Avery, played by Jesse Williams, as he travelled to do a surgery on a girl and in the midst he met his long lost father for the first time. While I found the episode entertaining and engaging, it’s what he said at the end that really stuck.

Motivatonal Monday | Keep Going 

Speeches at award shows come a dime a dozen. Being that they happen so often, when one really speaks to you, they’re a real gem.

Motivational Monday | Take a Step Back 

Welcome to my first Motivational  Monday of 2017. I’m excited for what’s to come and I pray you all have a blessed and prosperous new  year. I haven’t written a Motivational Monday this year simply because I haven’t been inspired to do so. I write these because I hope that someone reading will fill the passion behind my message. I can’t just write these, just to write them. I have to feel it.

Motivational Monday | Getting Through the Holidays

The holiday season is officially here and aside from my birthday, it’s my favorite time of year. I love Thanksgiving and of course Christmas. It’s beyond the gifts. Everyone just seems to be nicer and more courteous. Unfortunately, this time of year can be bittersweet.

For me, not having my mom around has been rough. It’s been 8 years without her and I find myself lately bringing up how I feel. This time of year just always gets to me. Thankfully I have an amazing support system, but it doesn’t fill the hole inside. Is that the case for everyone?
