With the help of New Directions Aromatics, I have found a new direction for not only my body but for my mind, my spirit and my home too.

 

TRUST YOUR JOURNEY (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

I stood right there by my seat jumping up and down. I was smiling as if my mind was being said. I couldn’t help it no more but to say Oh My God!. It was as if my mind was split opened by a surgeon and EVERYTHING I had in there was being played on a wide screen. It then made sense when my own child said, “mum, everything we learnt in church today, you said already in one of your videos and a lot of it in your book, did you know that?” I turned around to him, smiled again and said, I know baby. Today, I will be talking to you about WHY you should trust your journey.

YOU ARE PLANNING TO FAIL IF………… (Motivation for Monday)

I know you must have heard that saying, “when we fail to plan, we plan to fail”. Have you heard that before? It is a popular one isn’t it? Although the saying is a popular one, a lot of us still fail because we are unintentional or deliberate about succeeding. Today, I will talk to you about why it is very important to plan so we do not fail.

“To send the message home”, I will share my “mini” fail with you in this post. So I went for NCT (MOT, depending on where you live) last Friday and unfortunately, I failed. While this is just a test for a car which can be re-done, I could have prevented it.

HOW TO HANDLE HATE COMMENTS & ATTACK (BLOGGING FOR SUCCESS PART 6)

When I decided to write this post, it reminded me of back in the day when people would tease me about my height, my weight, my legs, my hair and everything really. In their opinion, I was too tall for a girl, too skinny for a girl, my legs are too skinny and my hair wasn’t thick(full) enough.  Fast forward to now, everyone wants to be thin, everyone wants to be tall, everyone wants to have long legs and everyone wants manageable afro 🙂 My advice to you is to LOVE YOURSELF and BE YOURSELF. You are unique and gifted in your own way.

 

That is not the post for today, that was by the way. Today, I will share with you WHY thick skin is a must for you as a Blogger / Content Creator.

 

FOCUS (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

It is obvious that we live in a world of information overload where everyone and everything needs our attention. Can you help me do this or can you help me do that? Does that sound familiar? However, Research shows that an “average person” spends about 4.7 hours a day on their phone, calling, texting and doing other things. The same research shows that so many people spend at about 3.2hrs per day on social media. In this busy world of information overload and everything and everyone trying to get your attention, today, I will share with you how to STAY FOCUS!

“I CAN NEVER BE A NURSE” (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

OFF_THE_SHOULDER_DRESS

A friend of mine told me that she wants to go back to school to do Nursing a couple of months ago. I was just at home when I remembered her and thought to call her to ‘hold her responsible”  /  follow up on what she said. I totally forgot to ring her on that day. Thank God I got the chance to hook up with her the next day (Sunday) and so I asked her; “so what about the course”? She said, oh yes, I have now started a module and will continue full time in the fall / Autumn.  I “jumped for joy” and said wow!  I am truly happy for her because she is now at peace with what she should be doing with her life.

 

JUST ONE STEP ::: MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

My mother is my biggest inspiration. I like to say that it is from her strength that I draw daily and here’s WHY: she is strong, wise, confident and she never gives up. Last week, she lost her brother (my Uncle) and as challenging as this time is for her, she sounds so brave /  strong on the phone anytime I speak with her. Out of the many wise words she would say to me, one I always hold on to and never give up on is this: A journey of a thousand miles start with JUST one step”!

Today, I will tell you the reason WHY you have to take that first step first before you can ever soar…….

 

CASUAL CHIC IN BLUE-BLACK + HOW TO GET INSTANT LONG LEGS

 

Before I hit the streets of Paris in my sneakers and scarf, this was what I wore to breakfast + did quick photos…..a pair of fitted skinny denim, high neck blouse / turtle neck and my trusted long coat which I have been wearing non-stop. To finish the look, I wore some ankle boots which I first wore in this look HERE and finished the look with my mini orange bag to add a pop of colour to my blue-black ensemble.  And voila, that is my outfit of the day. If I do say so myself, it is an effortlessly casual but chic look.
