My absolute favorite quote is an excerpt from the Renowned Poet, Nikki Giovanni. The poem is entitled Choices. “ If i can’t do what i want to do then my job is to not do what i don’t want to do It’s not the same thing but it’s the best i can do…” I live by this excerpt because for so long I made choices based on what others felt I should do. It’s important to really look inside of you and fulfill your heart desires. Read more>>

#PrayerPracticePatience is an affirmation I created to apply in my own life at a very challenging aspect of it. I was about as low as a person can be mentally yet I felt a change coming. I started looking at inspirational videos on YouTube from people like Steve Harvey and developed a stronger relationship with God. I realized that prayer is vital to every aspect in life but without your own effort towards whatever you’re praying for, you will be stuck in neutral. It was then that I realized that it all starts within SELF. As I begun to rebuild myself mentally and spiritually, I developed those 3 Ps and used them in every aspect in my life. You have to PRAY for everything you want, You have to PRACTICE/WORK towards everything you’re praying for not just sitting waiting for it to fall out of the sky, and most importantly you have to be PATIENT because nothing happens overnight. It was this affirmation that changed my life and I continue to use them to this day Read more>>
