Happy New Month everyone! Can you believe we're half way through 2019? Scary right? The older I get the faster time flies. Someone on IG asked the following questions, "It's half way through 2019 are you happy with your progress? Is 2019 still your year? or Are you watching everyone else progress why you remain in the same place?" These are questions each of us should answer. I can honestly say, yes I'm happy with my progress in 2019. Last year my prayer was for change and for God to remove anyone or anything out of my life that wasn't connected to my destiny. I've been complacent for years. I'm Blessed! I have a loving family, great career, I have everything I need, and I enjoy my life. But, I wasn't living up to my fullest potential. I think this happens to a lot of us, we're doing well so we get comfortable. Since the end of last year and this year as a result of my prayer God has shifted things in my life and it made me uncomfortable, professionally and personally. I HATE change! I know change is necessary for growth (blah blah blah). In 2019, I am being intentional. I am purposely pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I'm getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. First, I enrolled in school and finished my first semester with an A. I'm staying on top of my financial goals. I LOVE to travel but this year, I've decreased my travel to invest in me. This has been the hardest, I'm not going to lie. I'm goal oriented and believing God for something in the second part of 2019. You can't ask God for something and not prepare. I'm attending my first networking event of the year this weekend in Atlanta, It's a two day conference. I love meeting new people but I'm socially awkward lol. I get nervous and not sure what to say. I'm learning a lot of us have these fears. Although I'm nervous, I will no longer allow fear to paralyze me. Lastly, I've been consistent with my blog. A lot goes on behind to scenes to create these pretty images but it's what I love! I'm determined to become the woman God has created me to be. I challenge you to reflect on your own life and ask yourself the above questions. If you're not happy with your progress, there are six months remaining in 2019. Write your goals and commit to doing the work that yields results. It's not easy, it requires discipline and sacrifice, but it's definitely worth it!

How beautiful is this off the shoulder, high-low floral dress? A dress is perfect for an effortless slay this Spring/Summer! For styling, I paired pearl earrings, pearl bracelets, and a crossbody cream handbag. I wear boots all year, so I paired my blush booties to compliment the flowers in the dress. The perfect match! I was honored to collaborate with Ten Eight Fashion. Ten Eight Fashion is a women's online boutique that offer affordable, fashion-forward clothing. Check out their website:

I absolutely love this blog post because it is EXACTLY how I'm feeling at this stage of my career and my life in general. I know God has a great purpose for my life but unfortunately I'm currently paralyzed by fear if rejection. I'm praying that God will give me the courage to step into the abundant and fulfilling life He has designed me for. Thank you for your encouraging words.❤
