Wed Your Way........Vashtie

Vashtie Vashtie is an artistic, cool, creative, stylish and talented woman. In this post I shared a story from her website where she takes us on a journey how she met her life partner and their wedding day. I thought she chose a chic, simple and unique approach to getting married. Super cool and cute. Cherishing each and every moment and whom you spend your time with is valuable. COVID-19 had an effect on the world. Vashtie shared her private and personal experience with the intent to encourage others. All the best Vashtie! “I debated on if I would share this personal moment, but realized it could maybe inspire others during these shifting times,” Vashtie said. “While right now seems uncertain, the truth is any moment is. Plans derail and the future is always unknown, but we can still enjoy the life we have and make the best of it.” https://www.vashtie.com/my-secret-wedding-day-how-we-met-photos-video/

Grow In Grace

Grow in Grace These are simple words with depth. I learned there's peace in mindfulness and stillness. To grow in grace is something to do at ease when you have faith. When I started this blog my intention is the same today and that was to inspire/share with authenticity. You can utilize a tool from this blog to help yourself and/or others. There's so much information, speed online and platforms it's a lot to process. It's alright to unplug, have faith! I don't utilize all of the media platforms, my focus is being of service, concentration, doing the work and learning. I remember words spoken in a lecture  "if you're good at something people will find you". I agree what's yours will come to you! A lesson, message, job and etc.  Your deeds, dedication, effort, work ethic will reveal.   It's alright to unplug, have faith!  Online is good way to educate, connect with the world and offline is a luxury as well to enjoy simple things in lif

Tamron Hall "Game Chang-HER"

Tamron Hall Tamron was the first black Anchor on the Today Show.   A down to earth woman. She is truly beautiful from the inside out. I watched  Deadline Crime with Tamron Show and learned the producers wanted her because she was connected and brought an emotional component to the series. Tamron's objective was for people to trust and tell their stories. As she grew in her career she revealed, related and used her voice for the greater good! It takes a great deal of strength to share a story without receiving backlash or being judged. Many suffer in silence. Opening up can be healing, having a listening ear and know there are many ways to tell your story. Through art, music, writing, television, and media. As Tamron shares it's a journey of responsibility. She is spiritual and one of my inspirations through her activism, education, journalism and work ethic. The best quality is her honesty and humility. Through it all she displays both work/ life balance. Tamron's dedicatio

Knowledge Is Your Superpower

Photo credit : Pinterest Always remember the importance of the tree, stand tall & stay strong!  The Magician A Magician some define as a person with an exceptional skill in a particular area or a person  who performs magic tricks for particular entertainment. It depends on the intention as well as perspective. The particular magician being referred to is a professional deceiver, non violent criminal that can damage an individual mentally and emotionally. Cleverness in mind games and manipulation. Sometimes the con artist will befriend you and get you comfortable and vulnerable to fulfill their needs. It's tricky because there's no way to describe a con artist because they create themselves accordingly. If you ever feel confused, some things are off; that's usually a sign something isn't right. It's disappointing when finding out you've been deceived. As soon as you catch on they're onto something or someone else to scheme.  This blog post a
