Social distancing •••
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. Against such things there is no law. 🙏🏽•••
If I’m being honest, today I saw the actions of human beings towards one another and it truly hurt my heart.... ..
Don’t lose your head or your hope.
Please protect yourselves while also demonstrating compassion for others. Choose faith over fear remembering that fear is a liar.
Praying, and encouraging everyone to love above all else. We are all in this together. 🙏🏽✨•••
Here’s your mid week reminder from Jeremiah and I:
Love on somebody today! 😘🥰 .
If you want to know my heart, here it is.
Spending time with and pouring into the youth is such a passion of mine. I know what it’s like to have little, I grew up with little. I also know what’s it’s like to have much, through hard work and dedication I keep reaching goals and setting new bars for myself. In both circumstances I have allowed myself grace and wisdom from above to know that in every season it is just that, a season. Where you come from, and where you are now do NOT have to be your final destination. Being able to open up the minds of our young ones to creativity and other possibilities that are very much attainable is what brings me joy! @oasiscenterintl thank you for always loving on the children in our community and allowing me to be a part of that love!🙏🏽.

Life is a process not a project.
Sometimes we get so frustrated with ourselves.
Maybe you feel like you should be further along in life by now. .
Perhaps you haven’t reached the goal you were supposed to hit a month ago....
To this I say keep reaching. Keep going and as you are reaching, you are being strengthened, and as you are strengthened you keep reaching. And this is God’s process of change. You will get there but it shouldn't be to announce that " I have arrived" Have goals, but on the way to where you are going enjoy the journey and thank God for where you are, and who you are becoming..
Have a beautiful week friends. 🙏🏽✨
Im not looking for perfection.
Im just looking for something real.
Real time. Real conversations. Real effort. Real connection.
It’s scary to strip yourself of your comforts and allow someone to see who you truly are. Nakedness and full transparency can either lead to rejection or something absolutely magical. In having an open heart and choosing to share it with others I can assure you there will be turbulence and things may get messy at times, but I promise you it’s all worth it for something real in this life. •••.
Now days with the technology that we have, it’s easy to access people and places that are thousands of miles away and even though this is really freaking cool, we are actually finding ourselves lonelier now more than ever. We are at dinner with human beings that we can touch, yet on our phones seeing what other people are doing half way around the world.
There is a disconnect. .
I’ve lived a lot of life in the short years that I have been on this earth so believe me when I say I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND the hesitation in opening up to other human beings and actually letting others into our lives. The fear of it not working out the way that you “thought” it would, or the disappointment in finding that the ones you trusted with your life were in fact not at all who they claimed to be. (Whether it be friendships, relationships, family ect.) It is easier to hide behind a screen and just text or stay in the house and watch Netflix than to have to interact with human beings who are “iffy” at best. .
Heck, IT’S TIME. It’s time to reconnect and present YOUrself to the world again. .
In doing this, remember :
• Not everyone is out to hurt you. There are people in this world that truly have pure hearts and honorable intentions.
• Take only from the past lessons learned, and leave everything else behind..
• Be who you are, regardless of who they want you to be..
• Not everyone will fall madly in love with you. THAT’S OK! Not everyone is for you or you everyone else.
• Never stop listening to your inner Spirit..
• Have Faith.
• And fly high, lifting others up as you soar.
Hey y’all! 🙋🏽♀️
I just realized that I haven’t officially introduced the newest members of my family! 🤗 YES I may be turning into the crazy dog lady! 🤷🏽♀️•••
This is Praise and Koda and they both joined our family from rescue shelters about a month and a half apart. .
Praise: she’s a maltipoo (we think) we saw her being taken out of the trunk of a car at a shelter and initially was just going to foster, but.... yeah she’s too lovable to give up! She’s the guard dog! Haha .
Now there’s Koda: (it means little bear, which is fitting) the @lacoanimals said that we literally “saved this sweet girls life” as she was supposed to be euthanized two days after we came in. She looks tough but trust me she’s a big Ol teddy “bear” 🥰
I’ve spent MONEY on animals before, but there is something about being able to show an animal love that maybe hasn’t known it before. May I suggest you look in your local shelters first before purchasing. There are so many animals to love it would be hard not to find one... or two! 🤗
P.s. this is me trying to look hard with Koda Bear 😑 I completely failed 😂
The rose that grew from concrete.
If you knew what I came from, you’d know why I’m so grateful! “I’m just tryin to make somethin.” - 2Pac 🙏🏽🌹 •••
Stop looking for love and go support and love on somebody else.
I love seeing women come together to support other women. Last night was such a fun experience with the beautiful ladies of @cutebootylounge x @lafleurbouquets
Thanks y’all for having me. 😘

Dedication to your destiny requires saying NO to things you think you want in the present moment. You may have to let go of those friends. You may have to say NO to that job that could pay your mortgage but would jeopardize your integrity and morals. Every “good opportunity” isn’t necessarily a good opportunity for YOU if it isn’t getting you closer to that dream or the better version of who you want to become. Stay rooted. Don’t give way. Don’t give up what you want most, for what you want right now. 🙏🏽•••
