Fear as the Green Light🚦 to go for it...
There certainly are times that the fear is legit gonna save you, but that is rarely the case this day-in-age. Most often fear is 🚥 signaling that you are stepping out of your comfort zone towards the change you seek. Therefore, keep going. You will get to the other side with gloriously 🎇 flying colors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚡️
I have been experiencing this for myself, as I journey on the path of a first time business owner. I am committed to what I do; I feel it in my bones, my heart, and my mind. What I also feel at times is fear, especially when I am on the cusp of 🥴 big change. I have learned to take comfort in the fear, as validation that I am making the right choice for me and my business.
So, in Conclusion (😅) Fear Not! Or rather, not discount, push away, or avoid fear. Recognize it as a sign that you are staying the course ~ and keep kicking ass!!

Many in our society want a get it quick scheme. It doesn’t matter if it’s money, opportunities or weight loss. If it happens fast, they love it, but nothing that actually happens fast lasts.
Hence, you see the many lottery winners win it all and lose it all, stars who get wealthy fast go broke even faster and anyone who uses a get thin quick scheme eventually gains back more weight than they initially lost.
For those who worked hard to get the things they have, they not only maintain it they build upon it because they respect the hustle and hard work it took to get where they are.
So yes, I don’t want anything I didn’t earn because honestly odds are I won’t respect it enough to maintain or build upon it. There’s something to be said about hustling hard for what you want in life. When you succeed this way, It validates your genius! Let’s Get it!! As Always, How Strong Is Your Hustle? Keep Hustlin’, people!

When that 🌊 different..you behave different. I always loved clothes but my past weight has caused me to hate it at the same time. That caused me to impose my fashion ideas on others. What justifies a change in opinion? New facts and information. I changed a lot about myself so Why continue to sit on my ideas? Those who know me know I have a unique personality🤫😭🤣. I love being different. Why buy jackets and hats that are subpar when you can have the lane to make whatever you want? I prayed and asked God to give me a self validating Avenue. Let it be therapeutic and a lane of positivity! To want advice or seek a 👍🏾/👎🏾 should be balanced out with you executing! Validate yourself! Build yourself up! Find your therapy!
"When it was my husband's turn, something went terribly wrong and he became unconscious and then stopped breathing.
His cousin and friend panicked, and they dragged him into the house and placed him on the couch. During this time, he left his body and was standing next to his cousin and his friend. As he is standing there, he is watching them panicking, his cousin is crying, and they were trying to decide what to do. They were afraid to call 911 because they had been huffing gasoline, so they tried to do CPR themselves, to no avail.
During this whole time he is screaming at them "I'm fine, I'm fine! I'm right here!" But no matter what he said he could not get their attention. He was frustrated because they would not respond to him. When they could not get him breathing again, his friend called his brother in a panic, and while he was on the telephone, he walked outside. My husband's cousin followed behind. My husband distinctly remembers following them outside, but he was able to walk through the door without opening it.
He also witnessed the phone conversation his friend had with his brother about what they needed to do. At that point my husband said he felt something from behind him sucking him backwards like a vacuum cleaner. He said this suction sucked him back into his body and he remembered gasping for air when he woke up in his body. When my husband told them every detail of what happened and told them word for word what they said, they were shocked!
Since my husband's experience, he has had dreams about things people were going to do and about people's impending deaths which have come to pass."

Had a talk with one of my friends. To be clear, I am not advocating suicide or religion with this. Anyway, my friend suffers the same illness I do, so we talk really openly about what’s going on in our heads.
I asked if she would be mad if I did it. She said she would be mad, sad, broken... and then she said jealous and happy for me too.
I’ve been jealous of the one in the coffin. I’ve been jealous of my circle who have cancer or other deadly diseases. I used to pray to die.. I prayed to die for 10 years of my life and God didn’t fulfill. I get why, but it doesn’t make me feel better and it doesn’t make me want to be here... I’m jealous and angry when people get to die because I would give all that I have left to them.
When you’ve suffered this life long enough, and you don’t want to be here, you better understand those that leave willingly.

Super proud of this babe here
Slowly becoming the woman she's always dreamt of
The process is surely not easy but worth it
Coming out on top everytime and prioritizing myself and my career aside from being a mother
Juggling these is no childs play requires a lot of self discipline and courage
It is possible African child just do and believe ❤ ----------------------------------- #believe
one day you will wake up and feel the happiest you've ever been.
I promise you it won't be because you have abs, a thin waist or "tank top ready" arms.
it will be because you are finally in a place that the people in your life, who you value so much, love you back.
it will be because you no longer look in the mirror for validation or to pick yourself apart.
surround yourself with love and watch the happiness overflow.
loving you through it all.
Did you know Saguro cacti grow only about 1 inch within their first year of life, and when fully grown can be between 40-60 feet tall? This little fact, which I found super interesting, is also extremely relatable as a human being. We want growth and we want it FAST! In an age when you can get quick, instant gratification right at your fingertips, it’s hard to wait for change or growth within ourselves. But take the cactus for example: it takes its time-It grows as is needed, soaks up water as needed, and survives as needed, to one day grow into a beautiful, mighty plant (some even with beautiful flowers)! We are like that too! We all grow at a different pace (like species of cacti, there are about 2,000 varieties) but that doesn’t make us any less valuable or make any of our growth patterns better than others. We all grow in our own time, and just because it’s different-some faster, some slower-doesn’t make it any less beautiful. 🌵 •

Feelings are always valid. You're allowed to feel how you want, but it's important to try to understand why you feel the way you do and resolve those feelings. Learning to cope with your emotions and triggers that cause stress is difficult. It involves having an open mind and trying different things until something works for you. Don't stop trying and always have an open mind. Treat life like a challenge for both your mental and physical health. Just because other people won't understand your journey or challenges doesn't make it anymore real. Be proud of the small victories and find what works for you to sustain a positive and healthy life. There's always a way and self improvement is a daily game. Keeping your victories personal can be useful so that you appreciate them and do them for yourself and no one else. Your victories are your own and no one else's. The more you can tough out and get through, the more resilient you will become. Turn the pain into power by changing your life narrative and you'll be surprised at your own strength. We're all on a journey which some people have harder than others, but there's no end and learning to be solution focused will help you to overcome your obstacles easier each time. Different things will make different people feel different ways, but having an open mind and finding whatever works for you that doesn't create conflict with others, is all that matters. It's your life and your feelings, but also your responsibility to cope with them and figure out what works for you.

I had a conversation with a good friend of mind that made me wake up with this on my mind so bare with me for the long caption. We all have these pressures from outside sources who think they know what’s best for us. Most of them want us to conform to the status quo in order to live a quote on quote “good life”. And to be honest, a lot of times it’s coming from a good place. It was a definition of success that was passed down to them & a lot of times its all they know. At the end of the day you have to ask yourself, is what you’re doing good for your soul? Works going to play a large part of your life. If you sleep 8 hours a day then you are awake for 16 hours. That means if you have a 9-5 & you work 8 hours a day then half of your waking hours during the week you are at work. That means if you clock out when you are suppose to then those other 8 hours are allocated to your commute, to the time it takes to shower, to the time it takes to brush your teeth, to talking on the phone, to going on social media, to watching movies, to spending time with loved ones, to taking vacations, to watching your kids, to going to their games, dance classes, absolutely EVERYTHING else. I can sit here and keep listing all of these things.... The truth is, if work is going to take up at least HALF of your waking ours, you better god damn love what it is you’re doing. #justathought

Thank you for this post on Valentine's day @soberinvancouver
I made it through without drinking this year, way harder than Christmas for me... From an early age, the day has been riddled with the weight of judgement: an invisible and absent measure of my worth, in pink and red, furnished with non-existent overpriced flowers, destined to die a speedy death on a perfectly clean countertop, designed as a shrine to the idealist's clicheed demonstration of modern togetherness.
Except it's not, is it? But when all you have ever craved is love and belonging, you become lost in this exhausting desperation for this kind of validation from external sources. The little things seem never enough, beautiful kindnesses go unnoticed in the near-constant waves of self pity. My heart and my eyes gradually become more open as I begin to let go of every one of my false notions of happiness. It hurts to accept the emptiness of the things I have sought with such fervour, but it is the pain of a confused child, seeking only the warmth of approval and love, manifesting these beliefs in a sea of grand Hollywood gestures and perverted commercial opportunism. ○○○○○○○○○

What is the term for - not needing anyone's validation because I know who I am and other people's opinions won't change that but also just wanting people to give enough fucks about me to be validating?!
And not that horse shit, supportive to my face but not any other time trash that like 98% of people I know are so fucking fond of. Real support and validation, being there for me when I'm having a shit day...
And just incase any of the people I'm talking about are reading this and can't figure out if it's you or not here's a simple way to figure it out - if my name in your phone isn't Jordan IM TALKING ABOUT YOU. If you have used the words 'sister, daughter, she, her, girl, woman, girlfriend' when referencing me in the last 6 months IM TALKING ABOUT YOU.

💆🏼♀️STRESS MANAGEMENT SATURDAY: Want to know our dirty little secret? 😬 We bought our first home with no down payment, a 40 year amortization and a 1% interest rate. 🤦🏼♀️ At the maximum amount we could be approved for. That is how we became homeowners.
A few years later, we were lucky that the market had improved enough to sell our condo for a profit, 📈 which provided us the down payment for a new home. 🏠 Then we sold our second home for a profit a few years later, which provided us the down payment for the home we are in now. 🏡 We never had to struggle through saving up for a down payment!
Honestly, if we hadn't purchased our condo without a down payment in the LAST MONTH THAT PROGRAM WAS AVAILABLE, I'm not sure where we would be now. 🤷🏼♀️ Certainly not where we are, that's for sure.
Consider this yet another reminder not to compare your front stage to someone else's back stage. 🏠🏚You have no idea if your friends became homeowners because their parents gifted them a significant down payment, 💰 if they received an inheritance, or if they racked up tons of credit card debt in order to do so. 💳 Be proud of where you are and how you got there, no matter what.
Oh hi, it’s just me holding my face up in b&w xoxox 🙃
After much pondering and lots of discussions with my crew, it really got me that we have a lot of guys (off course there are some women too but this post is about the guys) walking around thinking it is ok to hurt people by their inaction, actions, silence, indecisiveness, unkind treatment, lack of honesty and integrity and commitment to name a few in the church or out of the church. Therefore I would suggest that you please consider your actions and how they affect people. It is not right to treat others like they don't matter.
Thus look at yourself and see if you are a modern-day coward:
. "He fears honesty
He avoids strong people
He hangs out with weak-minded people he thinks he can take advantage of
He manipulates words to manipulate people
He never apologizes
He lay blames on everyone and everything else
He makes up excuses and confuses excuses for reasons
He buys into mainstream excuses and thinks it’s okay because everyone else believes the same
He’s a crybaby and creates drama
He likes to put on a show and it has no ending
He’s a bully
He seeks validation online only
He doesn’t dare to take on a challenge alone
He’s passive aggressive
He fights back not because he’s right, but to cover up his flaws" -Alden Tan
This could apply to everyone. Look within yourself and analyze and correct yourself.
Treat others as you want to be treated. 💯
