Thinks working out for everything for our good. Real!
You believe this stuff or is it just words to make you feel positive?
I believe & have experienced it all THROUGH SHIT STORMS. Everyone in every walk of life has gone through their version of a shit storm!
Shitstorm's in Life make it rough or a valley or frustrating or things just aren't working out or unfair. It can be draining + tough. Overwhelming. Like pushing a boulder up a hill.
1-KEEP A POSITIVE + EXPECTANT + thankful attitude day in + out.
Praise thru the difficulties. It is temporary. knowing, You aren't the first or last person on earth to ever go through it, will make you feel connected + empowered.
Show up in life with warrior + thankful energy.
Expect goodness REGARDLESS OF surface circumstances.
2-stay faithful in your goals.
Stay faithful in your vision.
Stay faithful that behind the scenes, angels/your higher power/ God is using every single thing to piece together your purpose.

Arranging experiences and circumstances and paths FOR YOU.
Everything is a learning lesson. Growth Mindset! You Learn what you do + don't want in your life, people, places + things!
3- KNOW YOUR VALUE + worth.
Continually invest in expanding and deepening and knowing:
worthiness and your specialness
your uniqueness and

And YOUR MAGIC.

God damn day.
Use each experience -good bad happy or sad -AS A GROWTH TOOL.
4- be yourself. Practice being authentic and not trying to be like everyone else.
Be you, it's magic.
And it is key in your blessings having your specific name on it!
Do you. Keep your peace by having boundaries. Live YOUR LIFE. Your version. Keep the drama + peace stealers away-with a big sign on your fence Aka boundaries.
Your beliefs . Your parenting. Your style. Your voice. Whatever. Do YOU!
You are a gift. A miracle. A beautiful soul. Gorgeous + powerful & authentic.
Never apologize for being you-E V E R! Don't downplay or make yourself small!! You know me- one of my fvorite sentences- "If my light is too bright, then wear sunglasses! I like me!" Don't change for others or to fit in! Be the example to encourage others to be themselves!
Grew up my ENTIRE LIFE.
Never going on a vacation. Never eating out.
Having to be resourceful vs having resources.
Getting told at Christmas time not to be envious when I saw other people getting tons of Christmas gifts because our gift was my mom would be home on that holiday instead of working.
You get the picture.
I had to work harder + do more all the time.
But our attitude was constantly full of love + full of gratitude + being over the top enthusiastic about the smallest little things and always just loving life!
School counselors suggested I go to the community college because it was free. I had straight A's, and the whole shebang.
Even applying to colleges cost money for the application fee. Didn't have that luxury.
Couldn't visit colleges, none of that stuff it entails.
My best friend took a road trip vaca to
Nashville, with her single mom and siblings. Similar life to me.
So she was calling me and updating me on all the exciting stuff.
We are at a coffee shop and we just met some guy that said there is a music college up the street.
Marketing management production!
you can do music or you can do business. It's triple cost of regular college + expensive but
It's Christian and all these celebrities perform there.
( around the age of 12 I absolutely loved and looked up to this Christian hip-hop band called DC talk.
They got me thru STUFF.
They helped me to dream bigger and see bigger and believe bigger!!
I had one poster on my wall of them and my goal and dream was to go to a concert! They were my bible!!)
She says-We are going to stop by it & walk around for fun Bc it's something free & new to do! Maybe we will run into a band! Cool!
Long story short:
We get accepted to this college.
Passed phone interviews.
Get every possible school loan available. Holy hell it was ALOT WORK!
Never visit the school or tour it.
I'm just excited to leave freaking Delaware, small town, and have faith!
I major in music and business and take a full school load and I work on campus and you have to intern full-time.
I have no car.
I hit it off with my friends Roomate! ( divine timing and alignment)
She says you should intern at this record label where I intern and I can give you a ride when I go.
( I remember thinking I'm in a very competitive school where everyone is trying to be number one + how amazing + touching this girl is willing to bring me into the record label that took her tons of sweat blood and tears to get). lesson: women empower & support & help eachother!
I remember this the rest of my life because it makes a HUGE IMPRINT ON ME: women are to EMPOWER, support and help each other! Like my mama taught me!
Help +see eachother succeed.
I didn't experience or see that in my high school or other women growing up. ( just my bad ass momma)
I say YES. I don't have a car I have a lot of my plate and I'm just thankful & happy attitude.
Every single thing every single day at college was exciting and wonderful and amazing adventures for me. ( attitude)
She says the record label is owned by Toby. ( oh my god. I had no idea my favorite band that I had a poster of on my wall and prayed every day to- had a record label! ( that was 101visionboarding back then)
I go and after a few months of interning in a department I wasn't crazy about, being ME & giving 210%, the label manager in charge of the whole label wanted me to intern under him!
I meet everyone & everything in the industry & my icon & hero- Toby from the band! I am hands-on with every aspect from music Videos to law to publicity to Showcases, to IT ALL etc.
This is beyond my goals and beyond my wildest dreams and pure gold! ( my blessings have my name on it + it's divine timing and my destiny)
I am learning KEY business and emotional and spiritual and mentoring skills!
All of that is divine timing.
Staying faithful when I couldn't see the details + how & why & past limitations!
Expectant + positive attitude.
Consistency in being my best + doing my best.
Not making excuses. Big bigger than your excuses. ( I say this daily!)
working harder and smarter and giving my best!
Taking one step at a time and doing the next best thing and the next best thing and the next best thing versus having a detailed 15 step blueprint!
Going through a shit storm.
Having no resources.
Living in a broken down area.
Fighting for equality.
Haven't met your wife/hubby yet

Having unfair circumstances.
Whatever challenges you face in your life:

Show up in life BIG.
Know your value + worth.
Stay consistent + persistent.
Trust the journey.
Praise through the shit storms.
Attitude + mindset are KEY!
