Ok so you know how much I loooooooove all things African print so just taking a moment to rewind back to last week where I got to see all these Queens unapologetically slaying it in Paris with the most epic natural crowns @naturalhairacademy 🤩🤩🤩
IT WILL HAPPEN! HE WILL MANIFEST IT 💯💯💯 So don’t believe the nay sayer. Don’t listen to the people who say you’re out of your mind. Don’t allow people to make you question it. 🐍 🐍🐍 these are instruments of the enemy; fact check these suckers at the door with TRUTH & hit ‘em with the Bruno Mars 🎤 Don’t believe me just watch! 👊🏼🙌🏼 Also remember, it’s COMPLETELY FINE to admit you don’t know what you’re doing. Why? Check it! : 📖 “By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.”
Hebrews 11:8 NASB 📖 “Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.”
1 Thessalonians 5:24 NASB
Life is so good! 🙌🏼
Good morning and happy Friday friends!!! I’ve been doing a lot of shifting in my business and life. Big things are happening...it’s crazy, scary and soooo exciting!! Can’t wait to tell you more! 🤗
But for today I want to ask you a question. Most people want to be successful. Right? And our definitions of success are different. (It’s so important to know this and decide what it means for you!) My question is, are you acting like that successful person now? Are you making decisions like that successful person would? 🤷🏼♀️
This is huge!! I used to jump on ANY opportunity to make a sale. You need a graphic? I can do it. Want a virtual assistant? I can do it. Ready for coaching? I can do it. 🙄
This was a disaster. Not only did I not make sales or get clients, I was getting further and further away from being a legit business owner. 😵😵😵
Now I see posts of these kinds of things “I can do” and I don’t reply (unless I’m referring someone else). And it feels amazing!! Because the kind of CEO I want to be does NOT say yes to everything. I know my genius and I stay in my lane. 🙌🏼🎉
And one more thing...this shift has brought clients to me!! You read that right!! I get messages all the time now from people who want to know more and hire me. Game changer folks!!! 👊🏼💡
So, are you ready to start acting like the successful person you want to be? ✌🏼
Sooooo..I’ve made a decision.
I have a lot to say and I used to be a lot more active on here because I want to share it with you guys! But I’ve also been holding back because Instagram feels like it’s no longer the right platform for everything I want to share.
I considered YouTube and videos but that’s literally not going to happen. Me recording myself is not where I’m at. I’m not a fan of being in front of the camera lol.
So I’m going to turn to blogging..it’ll be my electronic journal and you all will have access to my journey and vision that way.
I’ll still be here on IG..using this page however I feel..but the real tea will be on another platform. So once’s it’s established I’ll let y’all know.
For now, enjoy Prince ☺️😘😘
This past year and a half to two years has been..for lack of a better word, BRUTAL. 3 years ago I was engulfed in an amazing church and was mentored by a Pastor who saw more in me than I could ever imagine. He poured into me and helped me tune into the Holy Spirit for true guidance. He never gave me the answers, just prayer to lead me to God’s answers. & when God needed me to move states I was scared because I’ve never experienced a church love like that.
Fast forward to the last year and a half God has made clear my calling, God has shown me my purpose. He has spoken His promises to my heart and soul. & no doubt the devil has attacked me. he used the church to try and make me question myself. he used the church to question the way i live and if God really does live in me.
God has asked me to do things that not everyone agrees with. God has shown me what it truly means to live freely in grace without abusing the privilege. He has made clear who is Large and in Charge.
I rest assured these Christians will be held accountable for the pain and tears they caused. For the slander and nasty seeds they planted. & for now I pray for their bitter hearts as God shows them that He is God and He calls the shots..NOT the world.
Because my God is MIGHTY and He warned me the weapons would FORM while promising me THEY WOULD NOT PROSPER.
This month has begun a new chapter. The harvest has arrived and the fruit is showing in abundance. GOD IS ON THE MOVE NO MATTER WHO WANTS TO BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!
@slayinyourlane is one of those brilliant titles for books that you wish you thought of....but didn't. Never mind. The incredible women who wrote the book however will be on the panel at @shadesofbeautylive! 🙌🏾.We promised we would #educate, #empower and #entertain....we were serious!! # Ticket link in bio! #slayinyourlane#blackbritish#blackexcellence
This is so important to me. My flaws, I wear them. My mistakes, I own them. The way people have trespassed against me I work on forgiveness while not allowing the violation to keep me bound in darkness.
I am not alone. You are not alone. We are together and we accomplish more trembling in fear in the light than we ever could hiding in the darkness. Find your voice. Be the voice for people who can’t yet find theirs.
