“Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.”
I like this quote because everyone has a different version of unstoppable and I truly believe that every single person is capable of achieving their “unstoppable”. Whether that be career wise, relationship wise, parent wise, friend wise, money wise.. etc. It is in each and every one of you. At the end of the day, you are the only one living your life. You are the only one that can create the vision of how you want your future to look like, and YOU are the only one that can actually put the actions in place to get yourself there. Once you start believing in yourself, hyping yourself up and continuously giving yourself that pep talk to push yourself past any limitations you may hold, you truly can make anything happen.
Here’s to another Monday and another week to become the best version of ourselves that we can/ want to be. The thing that I love the most about life is that each day presents a clean slate to improve and better ourselves. So maybe there was an off moment, 24 hours or you just didn’t put yourself in a position to accomplish what you had planned to? That’s okay. Life isn’t always about being on point, but more so about making it a point to keep trying. So wherever you are on the path to your dreams; square one, somewhere in the middle, nearing the end, what will you do with these next 24 hours to push yourself further?
So I started rereading this book, Attitude Is Everything by Keith Harrell, because it’s a good book to just circle back to, to have a little check in on your attitude every once in a while. One quote that I think is really important is to “Understand the power of attitude”. Oftentimes we allow little, insignificant events to dictate our attitudes for periods at a time and it’s actually quite unhealthy if you think about it. I’ve now formed the habit of asking myself, will this matter in a few days? And if not, move on! Our attitudes are the basis for our relationships, how we work, the first thing others notice about us and overall, just set a precedent for our lives. Only you can control and maintain your attitude, so I think that being more conscious of the power that your attitude holds, is extremely important.
I had the pleasure of spending some time with my 93 year old grandmother this past week. She’s the type of woman that makes friends and fans everywhere she goes, frequents activities like karaoke, water aerobics, bocci and belongs to a variety of clubs to maintain her social life. She left me with some advice that I wanted to share with you all and that was just to enjoy your life. Regardless of the moments that don’t go as expected, just have fun, every. single. day. Be nice to people, laugh a lot and don’t let things beyond your control get you down. Life is short, and it is only what you make of it. So to everyone reading this, take Rosella’s advice and go out and enjoy your life!
As the days of Quarantine continue, I am 1) still all about the comfort, but 2) very much so missing the days of getting dressed up, SO here’s a combo! Leather Harem trousers are that perfect in between of comfort and looking put together. I paired mine with a white corset top and platform sneakers but I would also suggest a cute t-shirt or tank for a more casual look. Harem trousers (pantaloons) were seen in the Middle East first, but officially introduced by Parisian designer, Paul Poiret back in 1910. In light of recent events, I wanted to highlight one of many fashion trends that have come from African American roots. At the time, the Harem pant was considered a controversial way of introducing trousers into a woman’s wardrobe.
Now, more than ever does the world need more love. All I want to say to everyone right now is to just be kind. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is, what religion you practice, your sexuality.. etc. We are all human beings and we all deserve to live in a world full of love. The power of kindness is so strong. It could make all the world of a difference in someone’s life. Today I motivate you to make the active choice to just choose kindness.
