TBT to walking The 3-Day with these beautiful ladies, my friends.
Funny how life can take you on a journey and then, without much notice or choice, change its course or direction. I began walking for a cure to breast cancer in 2009, and looked forward to my yearly events where I was dressed in pink. Last year, having planned on walking The 2017 3-Day, I was unable to participate due to needing surgery. The more I saw pink, the more sad I felt. I became more involved with other things, that now pretty much take up a lot of my time. So when it came time to register for the 2018 walk, I didn’t sign up. And now sitting here, looking at my pictures, I’m realizing how I let go of something that had become a big part of me. I miss raising awareness for breast cancer. I miss walking 60 miles in 3 days. But mostly, I really just miss being with my girls.

i have no interest in being a certain weight or a small size. i just want to be me. but i also want to feel healthy and energized and strong and i just dont feel that right now. so yes i love myself, fat and all but we have some work to put in because im not interested in feeling anything less than incredible.

So here's a confession...🤫...I hate living alone. I rather have companionship. Puppysitting my parent's 🐶 makes me happy 🤗. This little, sweet, fiery baby boy brings this family so much love and joy! How could you not fall in love?!? 🤩
I don’t share my life to boast or brag, I only share to inspire and empower. I’ve made plenty of mistakes, had to overcome different obstacles, “failed” more times than I have succeeded, but I’m still standing! I believe in really knowing SELF and fighting for whatever it is your heart desires. You got This!!!
🗣 “DON’T TALK ABOUT IT, BE ABOUT IT!!!” As a reformed talker (and doubter of self) I encourage you all to just do the thing that you continue to talk yourself out of. (Unless of course you’ve been talking yourself out of doing something that will negatively effect your life...continue talking yourself out of bad decisions...mmkay)
Listen...Life is short. It makes more sense to go after what you really want in life than to just sit on the sidelines.
You might just find that you’ll receive more peace in your life when you start DOING!!!! **excuse my nips...I committed a fashion faux pas ...I had to get this DONE** 📸 @lawrenceyoungphotography
Don't let my sweet demeanour & feminine clothes fool you. I am a very kind soul and I live my life to the fullest, most authentic way possible but that also means I've very forthright. Sometimes people don't know how to take me.
I never rely on another soul to give me anything, I don't pander to celebrities. I don't ever expect someone to lift me up because I have ulterior motives, or to get a quick 15 minutes. I don't need any big influencer to give me shout outs for my book. I'm not on ”daddys payroll” and no one has leverage over me. I don't have an ounce of fear. I don't wait around for someone to discover me, or lean on the merits of another. I don't throw out celebrities names to get me places in life. And believe me my roladex has some names that are pretty impressive.
I will do everything myself if that's what it takes. I don't rely on an ex to pay me alimony, buy me houses, cars, etc. That type of leverage gives women insecurity. If you want handbags and a lush life, I say get your ass out there and hustle. Hustle like all your life depends on it. And I promise you will get there. Women... Stop relying on men to get you places. When you do it yourself, it feels so much better all the way around.
Too often women rely on men to do everything for them and that in my opinion creates an inner lacking of self worth and victimhood.
I never allow anyone's opinions to sway me. I am my own best friend. I am my own boss. I hold myself accountable for everything. And I'll pat myself on the back when I've accomplished what I have.
I was told yesterday from one of my YouTube subscribers: ”youre a fiery red headed no holds bar, fearless woman. You don't care what anyone thinks of you, which is so refreshing. Raquel you're the female version of Gary Vaynerchuk.”
You guys I laughed my ’tail’ off when she said that to me, because everyone knows I freaking adore Gary.
When you want something in life you'll figure out a way to do it. Remember, the universe has your back and the universe spins worlds on axels by just a mere thought. There is nothing and I mean NOTHING we as WOMEN can not do!
Today I had a meeting with the MD/CEO of BenTV in London. BenTV is the first ethnic television in the United Kingdom and has really put Africa on the map. This man right here. I can only shake my head. He is running for the seat of the Presidency of Nigeria. Has sat with the queen, the prime minister and other dignitaries. Today he sat with me and his humility, my gosh is really really chilling. .
You see.. our conversation today showed me that a person is only as much as they see themselves. His trajectory and his love for Nigeria and Media is to be admired. Once again follow your own path and do you. There is no completion. Na your own purpose you go follow. Young people should be in the same room with this man abeg.
