“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others” – Marianne Williamson Read more>>

“Where there is no vision, there is no hope” – George Washington Carver This quote is so empowering to me because we, at times, don’t realize how strong our thoughts in our mind are. In order to succeed in life, you have to first see how you would like your life to be, then believe that you can achieve it. Read more>>

“Discover what it means to live life on purpose.” Through life we get board, rush to grow up and then wish to be kids again. We lose our health to make money, and then lose money to regain our health. We wish so much for the future, that we fail to live in the present or the future. We live as though we will never die, and die as if we have never lived. Life on Purpose has become the theme of my life. I want to squeeze the most out of every experience and make a difference along the way. I want to be someone who is giving and not just taking. I want people to see what Jesus has done in me, working through me. Read more>>

I do have a favorite quote. It is “Don’t just go through it, pray through it” this quote means everything to me because when I was at my lowest, when I didn’t think I could do it for another hour, doubted myself , my potential, my success. I came across this quote and I stopped just getting by , I stopped just waking up , I started fighting through my hard times with prayer and faith and I can’t explain the abundance of peace that has filled my life.

“Faith without work is dead” I love this quote because it does not matter how much Faith I have, if I am not constantly putting in the work I will not achieve my goals. I have to show up every single day for Milan Gizelle Beauty like I am at a corporate job. It takes a great amount of discipline to be a business owner. Read more>>

My favorite quote that I come back to often lately is that “life isn’t about the destination, it’s the journey!” This has become my new mantra as I navigate this new world as an entrepreneur. I have worn many different hats in my career, and have always been searching to find my niche or true purpose. Once I accepted and fully understood that each chapter of my career (and life in general) has allowed me to gain new skills, knowledge, and experiences to help me move on to the next step. Once I truly leaned into the learning and took that for what it was, the world shifted to open up new doors and opportunities for me to shine and grow. I started receiving more clarity on what I am supposed to be doing, which led me to start my own business. Read more>>

If you are not willing to learn no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. To me this means your willingness to succeed is all in your hands and if you have the right determination you can do anything. Read more>>

“Your only liable limitation is yourself” – Big Boi, Outkast I’ve been reciting this lyric/quote since I was in high school. It means everything to me. It reminds me that I am in control as well as held accountable in reference to my actions. It also reminds me that I am the only person stopping me from accomplishing my goals. When things go wrong as they sometimes will, rather than giving up I must find another way to make things happen. Read more>>

“Stay on the Journey” This simple but powerful quote comes from the story of Job in the bible. God allowed the devil to wipe out everything he had. Job lost his kids, wife, animals, but he never lost his faith in God. Because he remained faithful and ‘stayed on the journey’. God gave Job double for his trouble because he never gave up. Although this journey has been full of ups and downs, God has blessed me continuously. The blessings were worth the blood, sweat and tears I’ve endured during this process. Stay on the Journey Read more>>

One of my favorite quotes ” Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you create. This quote means a lot to me, because in the process of blogging and living a day to day life, life happens. We are only control of somethings so, why waste time worrying on the things that are beyond our power and use energy and time that we do have to create something positive. I like this particular quote, because when I find myself about to worry about something, I remember this quote and usually when I think of this quote I’m calm and I begin to think of something to create.
