Patience is the key to success. Navarathri is the festival in India which is celebrated on account of the victory of good over bad. It’s the divine victory of goddess Durga over a demon Mahisasura.
Navarathri is immersed with spiritual rites and duties. It took 9 complete days/nights for Devī to annihilate the asūra. We have to admit that our Divine Shakti kept Her patience to accomplish the victory! The religious significance of this grand festivity is to surrender ourselves to the Divine Goddess to attain Wisdom, Wealth and Valour for all our goodness and prosperity.
The non-religious significance is to share happiness by:
1. Invoking the divine energy in our homes by decorating Golu (a sequential arrangement of dolls)
2. Strengthening unity by sharing sundal, a protein rich snack, with whoever visits our home for healthy life.
3. Preparing ourselves for the change in climatic conditions, and combating with existing weather are other phenomenal significances of this festival.
4. Paying our reverence to the materials and tools we use in our daily lives.
5. Signifying the importance of women (Mother Nature) in our lives and her selfless service for the very sustenance of all beings on this earth.
6. Enriching our mass prayers, thus creating noble vibrations for global peace and prosperity.
Let us all pray to the Divine Mother for our goodness and prosperity.
Jai Maa 🔱

Does the sheer power of what you are trying to accomplish ever overwhelm you? At this moment, I am crumbling under this huge dream. This is a test, a lesson, aka “the point I would usually give up.” It is SO apropos that @msrachelhollis
are talking about not giving up on yourself this week for the #last90days
I’ve been riding such a high the last few weeks, I knew this moment would come. I think it’s important to feel these lows and really work through them. Shout out to my fiancé for coming over to the couch, where I sit crying while writing this post. I’m so grateful to have him next to me as we weather this storm together.
I never thought that being an entrepreneur would lead me into the direction of personal development. Honestly it just wasn’t on my radar, but it’s obvious to me now that the two go hand in hand. Without some hard introspection, we would be stuck in the mediocrity we so desperately crave to escape.
This post was long so thank for you sticking it out! I’m emotional and working through a lot tonight! Shout out to all the hustlers who are working hard & making their dreams happen, one breakdown at a time 🙌🏼
Do not dumb down your feels to accommodate someone else’s feelings
Showing you the various stages of this look from the final outcome to my very, very naked face from a couple of weeks ago. This week has been a test to my #confidence
. I got a stye(eyelid pimple) on my left eye and I looked like I had been punched (according to me). This meant I couldn’t wear ANY eye makeup. While I preach that #beauty
is not dependent on #makeup
, I still felt very insecure not being able to put on mascara or eyeliner. We get used to seeing ourselves in a certain way, and when we don’t look like what we’re used to, it’s not necessarily a bad thing - but just different. In my mind, if I can see a “flaw,” everyone else can see it too. When the reality is they’re probably not even paying attention. •
Do you also get up close and personal with your mirror and wonder if others can see that tiny little mark on your cheek?
Mostrándoles este look de hace un par de semanas desde el acabado hasta mi carita bien desnuda. Esta semana me ha salido un orzuelo en el párpado izquierdo lo que significó que no me podía poner #maquillaje
en los ojos. Estando acostumbrada a verme CON maquillaje, fue muy extraño verme sin. Cuando estoy en la casa sin planes de ir a ningún lado, nunca me maquillo. Pero cuando voy a la universidad si. Y fue difícil. Porque pensaba que todo el mundo se iba a dar cuenta cuando la realidad es que probablemente ni siquiera estén prestando atención.
Perfection is highly overrated and unattainable, and being an inspiration to the world does not mean you have your shit all figured out. EVERYONE has the power to inspire greatness in others..own that power. Be humbled in that ability knowing that If you are still here on this planet, then there is still work to be done. Putting yourself (or others) on a pedestal makes it impossible to see eye to eye or grow into the expansiveness you were birthed for. You are a beautiful, miraculous human and containing yourself in a single definitive box limits your magic. Soar big! 🔮💜

Despite all the challenges, I have always been enthusiastic about my career! My techniques were new to the U.S. and quickly gained a lot of interest. I was invited to speak at the Lash Conference in Chicago, and a little while later, I was invited to serve as a judge at the first United States Lash Contest in Las Vegas, then at the second Lash Contest in New York.
Beauty professionals asked me to teach them my techniques. This is how I began to host training workshops. I was always trying new techniques, and was the first in the U.S. to offer eyebrow extensions services. Then, microblading came along--a simpler and more efficient eyebrow solution. I walked along Fifth Avenue every day, imagining the beauty studio of my dreams in the most prestigious area of Manhattan. Exactly three years after I moved to the U.S., I opened the Eye Design studio at the location I dreamed about.
Today, I have a team of 8 professionals, and my clients include U.S. and international celebrities.
I have a school where I train other masters in advanced techniques and trends, and I am also in the process of launching online training programs, which will be available soon. In 2018, I began working on my own line of makeup products--and this is just the beginning!
When I was a kid, I couldn't imagine what the future held for me, but I had an ambitious dream of making the world more beautiful. I kept working on my personal and professional skills and never gave up, because I knew for sure: if you want something very much, it will happen.
We often allow ourselves to be the SMARTEST person in the room which only hinders our knowledge and growth. If you FEEL like you’re the smartest in the room then you’re in the wrong room!
Don’t allow yourself to be content, PUSH YOURSELF!

Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova (born 6 March 1937) is a retired Russian cosmonaut, engineer, and politician. She is the first woman to have flown in space, having been selected from more than 400 applicants and five finalists to pilot Vostok 6 on 16 June 1963.
Before her recruitment as a cosmonaut, Tereshkova was a textile-factory assembly worker and an amateur skydiver. After the dissolution of the first group of female cosmonauts in 1969, she became a prominent member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, holding various political offices. She remained politically active following the collapse of the Soviet Union and is regarded as a hero in post-Soviet Russia and much of the world. Having orbited Earth 48 times, Tereshkova remains the only woman ever to have been on a solo space mission.
In 2013, she offered to go on a one-way trip to Mars if the opportunity arose.

She worked in many countries including Gaza, Kosovo, Uganda, Turkey and Northern Ireland.

Remember the time when you dreamt about the things you have today? 🤔💭
Last year, my creativity was withering away at my full time job. Creating work that wasn't mine and didn’t matter. I did not feel appreciated or respected. At the end of the day I was left with only enough energy to crawl in bed only to begin the grueling routine the next day. I was a work zombie 🧟♀️
I dreamt of freedom to create, to play, to REST... I was so unhappy and I was afraid to make a move. I was too comfortable.
The Universe gave me plenty of signs to take the leap on my own but I was too afraid 😟 I soon got a nice big kick out the door. My position with the company was eliminated and I was blessed with enough hush money to pay the bills for a few months and purchase some necessities for my business 🤑
My dream is creating art that matters while expressing myself and helping people. All at the same time! I have seen so many signs that this is the right path. I know I have to keep going for it!
Here I am creating work that matters. Living the ‘working in pajama’s’ dream with my cuddly cat and new iPad 🛏✍️😻 This is a memorial portrait and gift to the family of a handsome young man that suddenly passed away in August. A brother to my cousin’s husband. I have some guilt over not finishing it soon enough, but I trust and believe it will be received well and given at just the right time.
What I am doing matters, I am gifted, talented and most importantly I matter. I am making connections and stepping into my power. I am confident, I am empowered and I enjoy being creative. I believe in myself! 🙌👩🏻🎨🎉
