Taking a moment to stop and think can be one of the most empowering experiences a person can ask for. My most rent experience allowed me to see the power of positive thinking and the strength of negativity. We often feel like the world is against us, that people are conditioned to hurt us and that dreams only come to fruition when we close our eyes. But I am realizing the more I build my company and the more I work towards being the woman I would like to be that everything is a choice.
The only way we truly fail is if we choose to give up.
The only way we can truly be hurt (emotionally) is if we accept that we are hurt. We can choose how much power a person or situation has over us. The first emotional response is pure instinct and natural but the choice to wallow in it is our choice. IT'S NOT EASY. But we can choose to act in our best interest.
We can choose to build up our dreams or fight to just exist.
My advice- Find something even if it is one thing in your life to be grateful for and give thanks for it. Figure out how to use it to get closer to what you want. Fight to believe in yourself because you can achieve so much more by being kind to yourself and believing in yourself than you can by doubting yourself. It's so much easier to see all the things that are going wrong in your life than it is to be positive but the rewards are so much better if you persist in positivity. This is my new goal.

“Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the same horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men. Now, women forget all those things they don't want to remember, and remember everything they don't want to forget. The dream is the truth. Then they act and do things accordingly.” - Zora Neale Hurston
I am currently in a place where I am seeking inspiration and daring to be bold enough to believe in my own dreams. It can be frustrating sometimes because you often are the only one who understands your ultimate goal. But that is all that is required. I am learning that we don't have a responsibility to make people understand our vision. We have a responsibility to manifest our visions.

So I have been super busy with the next issue of Worthy and MBFW Miami Swim was added to the list. I had to make the most of the experience but over-all the week had its highs and lows. I wanted to share a few pics with you guys of my week so far. Pictures from the actual show are posted on Worthy Magazine. These pictures are from show rooms that I checked out at The Standard to fashion shows at The Raleigh.
|Amazing show room for Melissa at The Standard. Do you remember the jelly Melissa's in high school? I looooooved everything here.|
|I love how Melissa manages to deliver comfortable and manageable pieces. These purses were made out of a material that you can wash and toss into the dryer.|
|It was only natural that during Swim Week, I ran into some gorgeous bloggers. Melanie Patterson of Radical Darling, Maika of Glam Life Blog, Niani of Fierce Fantasy and my partner in fashion crime - Charnele of Cha Cha The Fashion Genius.|
Beautiful Curators of Bikini Shell
|Lovely ladies of Hey Hey Gorgeous Jesse Lagoy and Katie Flanagan|
|The awesome lady behind one of my favorite blogs Annie Vazquez of The Fashion Poet. I was obsessed with her hat.|
|This gave me a southern comfort vibe|
|All fashion show pictures will be available on Worthy Magazine|
Hope you like!
