I feel grateful to have a career that allows me to work with people of all ages. They've seen it all and help me learn without repeating the same mistakes. Above all, they challenge me to try new things, to date, to experience life, to continue expanding my knowledge, and to grow. I've learned that you cannot change all the people around you, but you can change the people you choose to be around. Life goes by too quickly to spend your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you. Be selective. Be picky. Be ok with saying no to those who don't make you laugh or feel special. I hope you never compromise your self worth for the sake of keeping others in your life. You'll lose a lot of by having standards, but that's ok. A smaller circle....a greater you.

Find light at the end of the tunnel. ✨ My hope for you is that you never feel alone and when your struggles feel heavy on your shoulders, you know someone out there believes in you. Don't let your current feelings, situation, circumstance, or worries break you. Let them be the driving force that gets you from point A to B. Crawl if you must, but please don't ever give up on your greater goals because they feel impossible now. Sometimes that means changing who we thought our greater goals were going to be with. Sometimes it means bravely moving forward without an idea of what's to come. I used to fear the unknown, what hadn't happened yet...the future. It took good things unexpectedly happening for me to realize that the universe wants good for us. The universe wants us to reach happiness, our goals, our destiny. However, to reach it, you must find gratitude amongst the present..and that means being grateful for things even when they feel terrible. If you're barely able to drag your feet today and the weight feels like it's on your shoulders, I am here. Message me. You're going to be ok.

I remember speaking with a friend several years ago who was dealing with a breakup. She told me, “I gave him my fries when he finished his and was still hungry.” She couldn’t understand for the life of her how someone she cared so deeply for could be so careless with her heart. Despite how much he’d hurt her, she still cared for his wellbeing and happiness. I told her that sometimes no matter the neglect, sadness, and hurt some cause us- some of us will always care. It’s just who we are and what makes us unique. Why would you ever want to change that about you? Your heart, it's rare. It's beautiful. Not everyone is capable of having those kind of feelings...so own them. Be proud of them. Those people, the ones who wear their hearts on their sleeves are the ones I cherish. Because even though they don’t have to, they CARE to wish you well. The truth is, sometimes you have to meet those kind of people so that when you meet the ones with a heart of gold you can differentiate the two. I guess that’s what life is all about- taking chances and having faith in something greater. If there’s anything I have learned in my life that I feel has value for every person is to know what you bring to the table. Know what you can offer someone. Know these things so you never lose yourself to someone who treats you like you’re ordinary. You’re exquisite. Feel it. Believe it. Know it. And no matter what, never, ever lose yourself to someone who doesn't see it. Life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket...so leave it to fries to make you happy. #sundays

"Never let a confused man waste your time,
love or energy."
Not everyone will value your time, energy, space, and most of all...love. Make sure whoever comes to you doesn't take the best parts of you when
they leave. You're worthy of something real, something true. It's ok to have standards to who's worthy of you.

"There are days I go through where feeling lost did not feel like I was losing myself, sometimes it feels like freedom."
Sometimes the only way to find yourself is to get extremely lost. A follower recently asked me how I found myself and how to do it. The funny thing is, no one teaches us that. We are not told how we will overcome the chaos, how we will get through the storm or how the fire we walk away from makes us. All we are always told is that everything happens for a reason. Well, why do heart breaks and friends hurt us? Why do we lose people who we love dearly and family? I don't think things always happen for a reason. I think it's a matter of knowing that some things just happen. Simply knowing, "It is what it is." It doesn't mean you have to accept the feelings that come with circumstances though. You're allowed to grow out of the pain. You're allowed to let it make you a better or just a different person. Your current situation doesn't have to be your last. Just know that you hold the pen to your story and that's the only person that gets to decide how you'll feel chapter to chapter. Happiness, it's a c

’ve always loved writing and knew it was something I’d want to do forever…so I majored in Journalism. ✏️ Upon graduating, I interned at a prestigious real estate magazine helping local top agents brand their business, write on behalf of them, and manage their social media sites. Soon after, I was offered a full-time position but kindly declined. I knew I wanted to help people, but didn’t see it possible sitting behind a desk all day. Ironically, my cousin’s friend was looking for someone to work as the Director of First Impressions at, Keller Williams Palos Verdes.
I decided to apply and got the job the same day. During this time, I worked closely as the office Team Leader’s assistant and would listen in when agents would negotiate deals. I realized that I could fulfill my desire to help people, write, and spend more time with Bubba in this career.
It's a lot of work and sometimes I feel like I am running in every direction at once, but I took a chance and I am proud of who I've become. I genuinely believe that we cannot compare our journey with others. What’s for you will always be yours and what isn’t, may never be. Eventually, things come full circle and you realize why smaller things had to happen for greater things to occur. So, work hard and don’t be afraid to take chances. If you don’t build your own dreams, someone else will hire you to build theirs. This morning, I helped a stranger in London find a solution to her relationship problems and this is all because I am still able to write on my personal blog, Life Moves On.
I have so many more goals I want to accomplish and that’s what makes it so fun. So, set goals and make them big enough that you can't achieve it until you grow into the person who can. #FBF #trusttheprocess

One of the most challenging things I do every day in my career is overcoming fears. For many, many, many years, I struggled with public speaking and stage fright. It wasn't until my office Team leader asked me to speak at several meetings that I realized all my fear was limiting me from being able to help others.
I have no problem helping people over the computer or on the phone or through my writing as I always have, but when I began to teach classes at my office, I realized the power our mindsets can have in our lives every day. You can overcome anything you want in your life...it's just a matter of deciding that you're going to. I still get nervous, but I try to remember that I am not perfect and no one expects me to be. Your life begins at the end of your comfort zone, so do something that scares you. Make a goal, set your mind to it, and don't stop till you achieve it. You are worthy of all your wildest dreams.

A few years ago, someone told me that the greatest revenge is to move on and to be happy. The thing is,I've never been the type of person that can fake my feelings and how I feel about people. If I like you, I like you. If I don't, I keep a distance. I tried very hard to dislike people who hurt me, but I couldn't. Below the anger, pain and sadness, was still love. I feared never losing that and that actually scared me the most. Fast forward to now...I'm so different. I stopped trying to change how I felt about things, people and situations that shaped me and learned to see them for exactly what they were/are. They're just pages in a book that can be easily turned. It's a choice. The choice to either let tough times shatter us, or let them be chapters that help bring you closer to the good parts. Life is not always perfect, but it's always what you make it. So make it count, make it memorable and never let anyone steal your happiness. ��#perspective

One of my followers sent me a message this morning. She is looking to feel happy again after giving her ex a second chance to only find he disappointed her…again. In her words, “I don’t know why I wasn’t enough for him. I feel used.” Truth be told, it wasn’t her that wasn’t good enough.
It was always him. I told her that someone’s inability to stay exclusive with someone has no fault on you as a person, rather a weakness they carry. When a relationship ends, we quickly assume it has to do with us. Maybe it is because the person said we weren’t enough or maybe they cheated…leaving us feeling “not enough.” When you find yourself doubting your worth, remember a few things.
1️⃣ This had to occur for you to get where you’re going. You may not see it now, but have faith that something greater is ahead for you. The difficult part is not knowing when it’ll come, but believe it will and you’ll have something to keep working towards.
2️⃣ You don’t have to be who you were before you knew them. After a breakup, we tend to feel lost because we want to go back in time to who we were before we had them in our lives. I hate to break it to you, but you’ll never be that person again. You’ll have pieces of that person, but you’re different.
You have new experiences, memories and stories that have shaped you. Stop fighting yourself and learn to embrace the broken road that will lead you to where you are destined to be. Lastly, remember the inner warrior within you. She wouldn’t take this shit and you shouldn’t either. Don’t let someone take advantage of your heart. ✋️
