Already halfway through the holiday season and another birth year passed.🎂 ⠀
Hard to believe another year has just about come and gone.⠀
With so much to reflect on, it’s easy to look back on all the shortcomings, disappointments, setbacks and some of which we may say was a ‘waste of time’. ⌛️ ⠀
But was it really? ⠀
No matter where you are in your life, what you have attempted or what you have failed to achieve, remember this...⠀
NOTHING is a waste of time. ⠀
It’s a learning experience that has left you with far more knowledge than where you started with every single step forward leading you to the next. Even if it doesn’t feel like it.⠀
Just trust that all the pieces are coming together and don’t be afraid to keep moving. Sooner or later you will get to where you’re going and look back to say...⠀
Wow... this was ALL worth it! ✨⠀
So, don’t give up, reflect only on what you have learned and can take with you into the New Year trusting that 2020 awaits with the bearing of your fruits. 🍇 ⠀
When people ask me how I do it and how I keep moving despite the failures, mistakes and disappointments, I say this...⠀
💥I keep my mind on my vision of how I see my life already having achieved my dreams and what I want my life to look like. ⠀
💥I remember the life of struggle and misery I once lived and know that I will never allow that kind of life again. It’s not an option! ⠀
💥 I stay focused.
💥 I’m EXTREMELY selective about what I say ‘Yes’ to regardless of who may or may not like it. I come first and so do YOU!⠀
💥I stay committed to my goals.
💥I maintain a high sense of discipline.⠀
💥I am determined.⠀
💥I am willing to do whatever it takes.⠀
💥 Most importantly, I keep my dreams at the forefront of my mind so that I don’t lose sight of how important they are to me. Doing that makes them non-negotiable.
If something isn’t working, try something else. Keep trying until something DOES work because sooner or later, it will. ⠀
So be HUNGRY and do whatever sets your soul on FIRE 🔥 regardless what anyone else thinks or says because at the end of the day, it’s YOUR life, not anyone else’s.💕Cheers to living your best life!🥂😉
In all your brokenness and imperfections, God still whispers, "You are Mine." 💗🙌🏻🌸

I love toque season: you can hide bad hair days and dumbo ears 😂💁🏼♀️ http://liketk.it/2HR5x #email@example.com
Trying to keep my Christmas inspired outfits going by adding some velvet into the mix ✨ I wore this jacket dressed up for a dinner date with one of my girlfriends, but I decided to dress it down a bit with this t-shirt from @thewrightstuffchics. I like mixing casual pieces with dressier ones (like this jacket) and best of all, this jacket is $26 and very stretchy! I’m wearing my normal size medium, though I might have liked to size up for extra length. Everything except my shirt is linked through @liketoknow.it and can also be shopped through the link in my profile. http://liketk.it/2HQJq #liketkit#LTKholidaystyle#LTKunder50
@mrs_globe GLOBE AWARDS ✨✨✨.
The amount of ‘smile’ I had last night was out of control 🐒 The globe awards touched down in #China last night with RED being our theme this year! We had all of our queens from across the globe with us under one roof and we gave each delegate an award that represented them as individuals (in the past I have received health and fitness & the media award!).
The thing about each @mrs_globe is I get a new sister by choice out of it. The Globe organization brings ladies who have such vision and passion for charity, and the all inspiring woman empowerment philosophy!.
I was standing amongst my team last night and was called for my own award as ✨ ‘Best New Staff Member of the Year’ ✨ This was SO heart warming because what we do here at this pageant is for the ladies!! And I have woken up everyday with the intent of being a good example to them, of keeping them safe and of course being organized!.
The projects I have been put on have been challenging but so amazing and I love how much I have learnt over this past couple weeks 💕💕💕.
If I could give a message to any pageant lady aspiring for overall title is to remember: there is one ‘winner’ - but I’ve always felt in my heart that the friendships I’ve made have always given me much more than any crown could! On my left here is @alisatulynina our current reigning queen, who I have become great friends with, and @mrsglobe2018 a woman who I’ve worked alongside this week and admire greatly!.
Both of these ladies I’ve seen WIN on stage and truly, I’ve celebrated their every accomplishment and always love when we finally get to reconnect 💕✨😭.
Preliminaries are today I’m so excited to see the delegates on stage, this is what we’ve worked towards!! ✨✨💕💕🎊🎊
Eat glitter for breakfast and you’ll shine all day!

I asked my hubby to capture this pic of me in @sugazkouture then took forever posting it because I wasn’t happy with my pose 🤦🏽♀️ My girl Tiffany got me together for this event at the VERY LAST MINUTE. I’m talking, literally, HOURS before I had to be dressed. I just LOVE her!
Long story, short: This pic does not do me any justice 🤪 Thanks anyway boo @dartanyan.fordr 😘
🗒SIdenote: my child thinks it’s too revealing but what can you do 🤷🏽♀️ #reddress#reddressboutique#curvycollection#curvyfashion

Always look at people as if you're still getting to know them, because you are.
I've just noticed lately how often we make assumptions about people. We think we know them, and we probably know a lot about who they've been so far, but we will never fully be able to predict what they will do next. People are always capable of change, whether it be bad or good. There have been situations with all of my roommates where one of us will do something, and the roommate who is offended will assume it was the other one because they were still mad at them for something else. Or we would assume the person who offended or frustrated us did it out of spite, when it was just an oversight or a difference in perspective. Or, especially with family members, I'll assume they mean something by what they do or say that they don't.
We always want to pull out our record of wrongs. But we should treat even the ones we know with the same degree of curiosity and grace that we treat people we don't know at all and really want to get to know. So we can continue to get to fully know and be known by others. The blessing of "family" (or knowing someone well) is the comfort and security it often affords, but it is still our responsibility to continue to work on the relationship we have and appreciate the person that is developing as well as the one we already know. "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 NIV
