I actually felt inspired to write this because I am currently sitting outside where it’s so #peaceful . So I don’t ever tell my full story because it’s not so easy for me to do. The more I post and receive DMs and comments of how #inspiring my posts are the more I want to share my #journey . ———————————————
I think sharing it will help other people who are #struggling . Five years ago I was a hot mess 😂I had a long term boyfriend of 10 years..yes you heard right...I ended it, that same month I started going out every night because we all deal with things differently, I started doing #crossfit 6-7 days a week, was in graduate school, working and moving. ————————————————
Sleep? What was that. I barely got any. I felt myself living off #adrenaline for months. If I felt tired I would #workout again to get some #endorphins . I had crazy anxiety and started restricting all carbs from my diet. Needless to say, one day I woke up and I couldn’t even get out of bed. I didn’t understand what was happening. All I could do and wanted to do was sleep. I couldn’t even function. I told my parents I needed help and I started seeing a #naturopathicdoctor ————————————————-
It turned out I had #adrenalburnout and a slew of 19627 other things. Out of the whole session, the only thing I heard was...Alesha you are done working out for at least a year. I thought my world had ended. I left hysterical crying and depressed. The gym was my therapy and she didn’t understand that. To make a long long story short, I ended up being depressed and extremely sick for about a year. I could barely work or make it out of the house. Going for a walk with my 🐶 was a task. It drained me. ———————————————
In that year I realized if I don’t change I’ll never get better. I started taking #yoga and took up #meditation . I started being outside more and enjoying my surroundings. The point is you need to #slowdown . It’s still a task everyday for me to relax. I have to make appointment for #acupuncture , #massage and #chiropractic just so I know for that one hour I am doing nothing. I still meditate daily. I really believe #everythinghappensforareason and that experience made me a better person. #enjoylife

Don't forget to share your own experiences down below! Does this sound familiar? There is an event you want to attend but there is some conflicts or issues that prevent you from going. Perhaps this is money, not wanting to go alone or it may even be too far of a drive. You probably told yourself, "Next time", or even "Next year". -
Before you know it that next time came and you said the exact same thing. Before you knew it you absolutely cannot attend the festival, the party or family gathering because of your excuses. I personally saw this with my mother and family. My family tried for 3 consistent years to attend a concert. They pulled every excuse from the book, "Tickets are so expensive", "The seats will be too high", "I am busy". -
For 3 years this happened until 2016 where they were all on board. About to purchase tickets until the unfortunate news of the singer's death appeared on the news. It was a sad day for his fans, my family realized that they could have gone any of the previous years but because of their excuses now even if they wanted too and pay whatever they wish, they just can't.
Don't let this happen to you champ! Keep rising and attend events that you know won't repeat again why wait for the next time, the time is now!
“If I could end deforestation,
Then I would end the devastation.
I would send the inspiration,
To save our trees from decimation.
Because we need the trees
So that we can breathe -
When we cut them down
It’s OUR lungs that bleed…
Time to plant new seeds.
Because we’ve taken a lot,
And given so little back
It’s like we’ve lost the plot,
And gone completely off-track…
The curtain comes down
As the trees fall down -
But luckily -
We can all stop deforestation
By remembering that -
We Are All One Vibration.
By dropping into a deep meditation,
And true contemplation…
And calling out as one for Elevation,
Let us rise,
To Higher Stations.
Let's Save This Earth -
Our Only Mother…
By Joining Hands,
And Loving One Another."
Something I wrote after being given the super power to end deforestation at one of my writing workshops. .
With Love Always
In All Ways
The goal ...TO BE STRONG! .
I’ve learned over the years that BEING strong was the only choice I had. STRENGTH doesn’t come from what you CAN DO it comes from OVERCOMING the things you once thought you couldn’t!!! It’s time the outside matches the inside..... growing stronger both physically and mentally ✨

And just like that. God strategically opens doors linking you with women of purpose. I'm pictured here with two amazing community leaders and businesswomen. Kim Capers and four-time Olympian Joetta Clark Diggs. Yes, four times!! What an honor to connect and have a wonderful lunch.
Ever see the movie "Lean On Me" with Morgan Freeman? That's Joetta's father whom Mr. Freeman portrayed, Dr. Joe Clark.🙂 Slide pics 👉. Exciting things are ahead! Stay tuned.👌
We are all lions! 🦁 .
Whether you are young or old, a man or a woman, tall or short, skinny or plumpy, whatever your culture, religion, or skin color, you can unleash the lion within!
We are warriors 👊 Nothing will stop us 💪

Nowdays more and more people start thinking about fashion. They say we usually judge strangers by the clothes they wear, because it is the only thing we know about them.
To begin with, you clothes reflect your social status. It goes without saying that if you are a business lady you should be dressed appropriately. To put it in another way, if a person is a head of a company, it is preferable to him to wear well branded clothes.
Psychologically, people spend so much time on fashion and buying clothes to forget about different life problems. That is tosay, shopping for clothes can be a good therapy in case of life troubles. However, it is not worth a sacrifice if you are a shopoholic and buy everything you see; the feeling of style and good taste are surely important.As opposed to above ideas, some people argue that our clothes should be similar to our soul, and that it is not necessary to spend amounts of money on designer clothes. However, I am inclined to believe that fashionable clothes reflect our soul greatly, besides it is extremely good-looking.
All in all, fashion is an inseparable part of our life and there are no bad points in purchasing expensive designer clothes if you can afford it.😉
