While sitting in a sorority meeting I realized how important it is to take care of our finances. This challenge of shopping in our closet is about saving money; but it’s also about being financially responsible and staying or getting out of debt(credit card and over withdrawal from our accounts.) None of us desire to go to prison, so why do we put ourselves in financial prison?Slaves to bills and paychecks gone before it’s posted to our accounts. Shopping in our closet is not a bad idea for helping us to become better stewards. I’m not saying to never shop again, just shopping with more wisdom.
Thank you Sorors for your support. I’m glad you are enjoying finding treasure in your closets. Day 62. #lookagain#whatsinyourcloset#youalreadyownit#valueyourself#financialfreedom#financiallyresponsible#stewardship#insideellascloset#shopping#debtfreejourney
One thing that I've learned with age, and experience, is one should respect their one possession that even the wealthiest person on earth cannot buy more of. Your time here on this planet. If you do not respect what your time is worth, who will?
A start-of-the-week reminder: You are valuable. You are enough. You have worth. Not because of what you look like or how clean you keep your house or how talented you are at cooking or singing or crafting. You are enough because of who you are at your core. Your worth is innate. Now take that truth and use it for good ♥️. You can do amazing things!
What’s something you’re looking forward to this week? I’d love to get excited with you!
Let me just tell you about an individual who has impacted my life in such a short, short period of time.⠀
I connected to Rachel almost instantly. Her words could easily be mine. They resonate. I get her. She gets me.⠀
I am grateful for this connection.⠀
I am grateful for @erica.akingboye for connecting us.⠀
Now, it's time for some #truthbomb takeaways from @girlconfident at #paystobebrave this weekend:⠀
::❗️SALES TIP ALERT❗️::⠀
If you are currently struggling about being pushy or slimy with your messaging and offers I challenge you to acknowledge that it is likely because you don’t know who you are.⠀
Let that sit with you for a second. Do you know who you are?⠀
I used to care a lot more about what other people thought of me. I still let other judgmental viewpoints and negative people in my life get the best of me, but what Rachel allowed me to realize is that:⠀
When someone is judging you THEY SEE YOU, THEY HEAR YOU, and THEY ARE PAYING ATTENTION TO YOU.⠀
I would rather be SEEN, HEARD and JUDGED than not changing lives. BOOM👊🏻👊🏻💥⠀
As soon as you can start accepting whatever you did and who you are, the sooner you’ll start making sales.⠀
☞ Your identity is not what people say you are or what people say about you.⠀
Mom, wife - that’s not your identity. Those are roles that you fill.⠀
☞ Identity comes from your core. Your beliefs and your values.⠀
When you keep compromising for other people your message gets cloudy. ⠀
☞ You need to decide right now. Who are you going to show up as?⠀
Every time you take a stand for who you are at your core identity and take a stand for your message, you start to attract the right people. They then become an advocate for you. ⠀
It’s hard to let people go - especially those you care about. Just because someone is important to you it doesn’t mean the feeling is reciprocated.
If calls can’t be returned. Texts go unanswered. The only communication is for “a favor” or to talk about their life drama. They don’t make you feel good. They don’t make you smile. They always throw shade or aren’t genuinely happy for your success. If they are any of these scenarios or maybe all. If they are emotional vampires.
Let 👏🏼 Them 👏🏼 Go 👏🏼
Lies can have the power to stop us in our tracks. Some can threaten our identity and the pursuit of our purpose. Check out my newest post for 3 lies you need to stop believing.

Start where you are and be confident in your abilities.
When you start something new you don't necessarily think about the skills you already have to complete the task. What ever you have when you start is how you should start. Seeing the flashy, expensive automated system or tool is very tempting, but why would you spend money on these things without knowing how you are going to use it and if it is right for you?
Trust yourself enough to get the job done and the what you need will begin to present it'self to you. How will you know? You will start asking yourself questions that you never though of before. If you enjoyed this post please like and share 💜

🤩Vegans do not need to feel like they are missing out on foods that they may have eaten prior to choosing to eat a based diet.
🍔A delicious chickenless chicken schnitzel burger made for dinner. Made by Veggie Delights, meat free and full of plant goodness. High in vitamin b12, iron, protein, zinc and fibre. 😍While I wouldn't choose to eat this every night it is nice for a treat.
🤩Becoming a vegan doesn't make you grow 3 heads. It's all about living compassionately and contributing to doing the least amount of harm as possible to the planet, animals and myself and others. 😍If you can live a healthier life by changing your eating habits, why wouldn't you?
[Why Putting Yourself First Helps Everyone]
How many times have you skipped the gym to clean the house or do laundry during the rare 45-60 minutes of alone time in your day?🤷♂️
How many times have you given in and eaten too much or too unhealthy of a food choice because the kids or your spouse wanted it, and regretted it later?🤦♂️
How many times have you found yourself resenting the kids or your spouse because you can’t seem to do the things you want or need to do to take better care of yourself to get in shape...because you feel like you have to put everyone else first?🤔
As long as you keep thinking this way, you’ll keep feeling and acting this way. You aren’t seeing the value in taking care of yourself in your daily life, so how can you expect to do it with that new workout or nutrition plan?🔥
This isn’t to say that your family or your job isn’t important...they are! In fact, if you want to be able to be better for them...you have to be better for yourself!💯
You want to start seeing results and making real changes to get in shape and stop failing in your attempts to get fit and healthier? Start putting yourself first. You’ll feel happier, more confident, and more accomplished, as well as more energized to handle all of the work and home tasks you have to tackle everyday!🎯💯
Don’t you and your family deserve a better you?
You know what is the best part about life? The fact that you can be better than any fker out there. You don’t have to follow anyone’s footsteps. If you do follow someone. Make sure they impact your life in the best way possible. Negative bullshit will never leave. You just need to learn how to put it aside. Work on growth no matter what it is. Any little step. Any little progress. WORK ON YOUR GROWTH. 💪🏽💯✊🏽👊🏽🙏🏽🙌🏽👏🏽 #myopinion#thoughts#progress#stepbystep#stayhumble#grow#selfvalue#valueyourself#strength#tattoos#castro
You've seen them as must as I have. The posts about people hating Mondays, blah, blah, blah. GET UP, GET DRESSED, AND SHOW UP!
I guarantee if you fight through the things you don't want to do, they will become easier. You will have trained your mind and body to do it so much that it becomes automatic. How do you think your first instinct is to find an excuse or complain about something you didn't want to do 🤔 It will be rough, but it will be worth it.

2 years ago, when I was first presented this opportunity, I was very reluctant. I was a brand new mom to a toddler and a newborn. I felt like I had absolutely NO TIME during my day to consistently do a workout program. The lady tried to explain to me that I did have time and it depended on what my PRIORITIES were. This lady obviously didn't have kids so I quickly shut her down.
If I knew then, what I know now.... I can't even begin to imagine how differently my life would have been.
Maybe, if I would have signed up for her bootcamp, then I wouldn't have struggled with being a new mom with postpartum depression and anxiety. Maybe if I signed up for her bootcamp, I would have connected with other women who were also new moms and were feeling the same. Maybe if I would have signed up, I would have found out sooner that it's SO MUCH MORE than workout programs and nutrition guides.
I don't want ANYBODY to wait as long as I did to begin their health and fitness journey. 2 years is way to long to wait to become commit to a better you! You should VALUE your health and fitness. It doesn't matter how big it small your goals are, you just have to start NOW! Its going to take a lot of hard work and dedication but I promise if you want this bad enough, I will help you achieve your goals.
There's 60 days left of 2018. Do you want to crush your goals!? Drop a 💪 in the comments below to get started before 2019 comes knocking on your doorstep.
It's taking time. But everything I am doing is coming to life. FINALLY!
My big house has been pushed to. A smaller size in order to fit air bnb vacay spots on the land as well.
Along side of school. The island. Kids for Farm life. Business in DC. Cleen. . And another overseas project. I am literally swamped. Put planting seeds in important. I dedicate hours per day to my companies. I sit meditate on next move.
The secret. My friends fuel me with positive words. They speak life into my existence. My being. They look at me and tell me the truth. The love I get from people I TAKE that love and apply it to my spirit. My energy. I make mistakes yet I appreciate those who dont beat me down with minor set backs. Or mistakes.
Thank you goddess /universe for ALWAYS ALWAYS reminding me everyday that I am special and I deserve the best. Thank you for helping me see me and nothing else.
And thank you for my future. I'm patient because I know what kind of love I deserve and what's real.
[#PointOfView ] It is human nature to think we are right and other people are wrong. This obsession with being ‘right’ can take up so much of our mental time and energy. Think about how much energy you spend trying to convince yourself/others that your actions are/were justified. However, rather than just automatically assume we are right, we could look at the issue from another point of view. Maybe, just maybe, sometimes we are in the wrong? Even entertaining this idea involves a degree of humility.
Asking God to order our steps and channeling the spirit of humility this week. Perspective is EVERYTHING!
My face when I think about my 29Th Birthday...in less than 1month. #LookingForward
Ces dernier temps, on me parle souvent du cap des 30ans qui approche. Moi, j'y vais relax franchement mes sœurs y sont passées avant moi...et je trouve qu'elles me l'ont bien vendu cette fameuse trentaine.
Alors mes 29ans qui arrivent dans moins d'un mois, je me dis " Yes, presque 30 & un an plus en vie. Alors Grosse Fiesta !! "
Et vous, Quel est votre sentiment à l'approche de votre anniversaire ? 🎉🎂#BirthdaySoon#TropCoolTaVie#BloggeuseMode#PhotographyLovers 📷 @lynn_v_photographe
When you understand that you have the option to choose and stop feeling and questioning why you are not chosen, life becomes much better and you STRONGER! STOP feeling & START thinking 🤔! #valueyourself
Remember that Slow and steady wins the race 🙏 Not everything needs to happen right now. They’ll happen when they’re suppose to happen. So don’t you worry! Stay calm and focused on where you are now and in no time you’ll be where you want to be 🙌 #dreambigdobigger
