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

’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. ✋️

"DON'T BE INTIMIDATED BY A
WHO REALLY DOESN'T NEED YOU.
AS A MATTER A FACT, SHOOT FOR HER...
SHE MAY KNOW HER AND YOUR WORTH."
There's something to say about women who aren't afraid to know their worth. These women aren't concerned with how their confidence is perceived in the eyes of others. Why should they? What's wrong with loving yourself? I think that's one of the important battles we have to overcome in this life. I truly do believe that. No one teaches us that simple knowledge that could take us so far... "Love yourself."
I grew up in a house where my father wasn't very loving to me and that really affected how I was in relationships, how I viewed myself, and how I would react when feeling abandoned. I didn't know that subconsciously I was allowing all those things affect me Day in and day out until I spoke to a therapist who helped me learn that it's never too late to learn how to love yourself. I'll tell you, learning to do that at 23 wasn't easy.
I didn't even know who I was, which made it even more difficult to do. It took a lot of tears, writing, nature, forgiveness, music and healing to find myself. It took being on my own to find myself and I now not only love myself because of it, I know what I have to offer. Don't forget to fall in love with yourself, first. Everything falls into place after that... ✖️⚫️✖️⚫️

"Don't pray for an easy life.
Pray for the strength to endure a difficult one."
I'm probably the most careful person I know, next to my mom. I've always acted on and didn't act on decisions because of my carefulness. Most of the time, though I hate to admit it, my indecisiveness stems from fear. It's not so much the fear of losing that scares me, rather a desire to protect myself from feeling disappointed, sad or stuck. In result, I take my time thinking things through over and over before taking the plunge. I don't like to rely on people and for that, it takes a lot for me to stray away from my comfort zone. Unfortunately, a comfort zone doesn't really help us grow. It's a place where we feel safe, but it's in the moments that we are challenged that we grow the most. Whether it's going on a first date after ending a long relationship, trying a new food, or taking a road trip alone...I hope you try something new. I hope you believe in yourself enough to try. I hope you know you are worth going to bat for. #comfortzones

I used to fear change so much that I tried to resist it from happening. Through that, I learned the anxiety trying to control things causes a person. In reality, we are never in control. We like to think we can control how things will play out, and that's where most of our unhappiness, stress and anxiety stems from. I believe the sooner you come to realize that you're never in control, you allow the universe to open doors, create paths and bring you solutions to things that seem or feel unattainable.
For me, the greatest challenge was accepting that I can grow and become a greater person, while remaining true to my beliefs and who I really am. We know that pain changes us. Sometimes we try to mask the pain by doing things we can control, like dyeing our hair, changing our music, or moving away. These are things we can control, but there are always going to be outside factors that no matter how much we try, are there. When people tell me I've changed, the answer is no longer of concern or fear of what they think or why they say that. The answer is pretty simple, actually. "I didn't work this hard to stay the same." You're allowed to grow, my dear. You're allowed to grow in all the places people thought you never would. So, smile and embrace all you've become because you've worked too damn hard to stay the same. #journey #soul2soul
