How many of us struggle to be satisfied? When I get to a place where I feel like I’m just not happy where I’m at, I do my best to turn that feeling on it’s head and focus on all the reasons why I should be happy and I look at everything that I have been given, including talents, skills, characteristics, abilities and ‘disabilities’, strength and weaknesses; I can’t help but have a full and grateful heart. Unfortunately, those unhappy feelings don’t stay gone, they come back and I just

You may or may not know this, but only 2% of women describe themselves as “beautiful”. Women literally spend billions on beauty products and it wasn’t too long ago that surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures rose by 457% over the span of 10 years. This is precisely why my colleague Chivon John created the Self-Love Academy and why people like Kenetia Lee wrote: Fearless Beauty 360° Kenetia Lee is a Beauty activist. Celebrity makeup artist. Author. Speaker & Life-changer on a mission to change your perspective on beauty. In Fearless Beauty, she

I know I preach a lot about changing your mind so you can live a better and more fulfilled life, so this is just me preaching it again, but from a different angle 🙂 Consider this . . . The spirit of your mind, is the spirit gifted you by God and it’s the same spirit that you hear whispering what you should and shouldn’t do whenever you are faced with a decision. Many of us ignore the whispers on the journey of our growth and prosperity, but as we

What Is Love?

Nothing has taught me more about love than when I really started studying the scriptures of the Bible. I’ve always known about how much God loves us, but the more I learned about how many times He’s forgiven us from generation to generation and how He sent His son to wipe away our sins, the more I realize the meaning of true love. He loves us enough to give us life, He assures that all our needs are met, He teaches us, guides us, protects us, surrounds us with people

When we’re growing up, we engage in a lot of activity that may be appropriate during our childhood, but it tends to hold us back as adults. If you are trying to get to the next level of your life and finding it a challenge, maybe it’s time to explore the things you are doing that no longer serve you. If you’re getting caught up in all the wrong kinds of relationships, if you find that you never have enough money, if you encounter friends who continue to stab you

In the summer of 2012, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She decided to check out some pain she was feeling under her right arm and while the pain wasn’t related to the cancer, the doctor did find cancerous lymphnodes which she had surgically removed. Over the next year, my mom underwent both chemo and radiation therapy and today she is cancer-free! At the end of 2013, I noticed a small lump under my right arm and decided to monitor it to see if it would evolve into simple

Many people will tell you that you have to give respect to earn respect which is only partially true. I mean how satisfied can you be with someone respecting you, only because you respect them? What about all your hard work and sacrifice? Shouldn’t that be a strong basis for someone to respect you? I believe that true respect is earned and it’s earned through our work and the way we are. For example, people who humble themselves, they refrain from judging others and are not loud, obnoxious or boastful

My heart is always so filled with contentment and gratitude when I consider that, not only have I been given the opportunity of life, but that I’ve been created with love and individuality. The body as a system still amazes me to this day: the food processing system, the healing system, the feeling system, the thinking system, the natural blood flow and breathing system; all working together to make us who we are and who we will be. If you ever feel like you blend in and there is nothing

We often can’t help but feel upset about the trying times that we endure and nothing is stopping us from having a positive attitude about any situation except our ego. The ego can be very deceptive in telling us how we should feel about a particular situation, but there is always some good or some lesson in every trial. Our job is to seek out, understand and accept that good or that lesson and allow it to anchor us during stormy weather. We are all called to trial, Jesus was

It’s so important that we never stop trying to find who we are and that we never settle for other people’s definition of us. Some of us are living according to what people expect from us, but you must develop the courage to be different and be the person you know lives inside of you. Marie Forleo always reminds us that the world needs that special gift that only you have, but if we’re hiding behind status quo, then not only are you robbing the world, but you’re not living
