Don’t Wait For The Change. Be The Change.

Wow I cannot believe that 2015 is almost coming to an end. What an amazing year it has been! Every year I continue to achieve more then I plan to. Which is a good thing. You should always set high standards to challenge yourself. What is life without a challenge right? I hope you all have great goals for the year of 2016. I know I will definitely be traveling a lot. I hope to blog more and maybe even start a Vlog. It is crazy how time flies and how things can change in a flash. I have been blessed with so many opportunities this year. Some that even gave me the chance to make a difference in the lives of others. I hope that I continue to motivate others. There is nothing better then showing people that you can make anything happen. Life is so much better when you are positive. I once was a negative person who cared too much about what others thought but as I got older I realized that you won’t get anything out of life that way. The people who are judging you aren’t the ones living your life or paying your bills. I couldn’t be happier with the decisions I’ve made these past few years. I know that I will continue to rise to the top. If i can, I know you can 🙂 Don’t stop until you make it to the top! I could not ask for better people in my life. So many people coming in and out, but I have the right ones right by my side being the best support ever. Here’s to the ones who have lost hope. Keep pushing yourself to do better everyday and if you have already achieved your goals. Set bigger and better ones. Never give up! Don’t forget to smile and be thankful that you get to see another day. Don’t wait for the Change. Be the Change. Happy Holidays!

Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Stepping out of your comfort zone is not the easiest thing to do. The older I get the more I continue to step out of my comfort zone. After my trip to Nashville I’ve been asking myself what could have happened if I visited 3 years ago like I wanted to. It made me realize that I need to take bigger steps and stop holding back. You aren’t living life if you aren’t taking chances right? A lot of times we hesitate and question ourselves because we are scared that we are gonna fail or disappoint the ones we love. Don’t doubt yourself, just do it. It is better to live life knowing you tried than to be asking yourself the “What if” questions. “What if people don’t like me?” “What if I can’t financially do it?” “What if I don’t like it?” These are some basic questions we always ask ourselves when it comes to making decisions on moving, starting a new job, starting school and much more. I believe that everything happens for a reason so just choose a path and everything else will fall into place.My decisions continue to change as I get older. We have to step out of our comfort zone, even if it means being alone and thousands of miles away from family. Sometimes that is what is needed to realize that you can make it on your own. Don’t stop until you make it to the top.

Confidence Takes Practice

n

Sometimes you get a little discouraged seeing all these models who we think are “perfect”. There is no such thing as being  “perfect”. Everyone has flaws no matter what age, size or race you are. Without these flaws I would not be the person I am today. I have always been a girl  who never wore makeup and had a little more meat on her body then most. As I got older I realized that the more comfortable  you are with yourself the happier you will be. A few years ago I would have never worn shorts, tank tops, bathing suits or makeup. I slowly started to wear makeup even though I was not the best at it. As I continued to practice every day I started to get better. Most people always say that you do not need make up to be beautiful but that’s not why most woman wear it. It’s just like another escape for us ladies after a long day to sit in front of the mirror and practice different ways to apply makeup. It is exciting to see how much improvement you make as the years go by.  Makeup, clothes, and shoes are always our toys.  Nothing makes a woman happier then getting dolled up. Confidence takes practice. Love yourself before you can love anyone else. Flaunt what you were blessed with.
