Your dreams are HOW BIG???

Top and Blazer:  Thrift store (which I think was a dress, for a smaller lady, but I pinned it in the back).
Jeans:  NY & Co. (I folded them at the bottom)
Shoes: Local store here in Chicago
Hair: Micros

So I surprised myself and went out and had a nice time with the fam.  That spot on my top has to be Vaseline.  I can't be ashy in public (lol).

Okay now let's get into it.  Apparently I am on some kind of life journey and I do not know what to make of it.  Lately I have been trying to figure this out.  It seems that when I have an epiphany about a particular life issue, that it is confirmed in some way. 

Today I was listening to Oprah talk to Steve Harvey and I was thinking how awesome that was and someday I'll be on that level.  Soon after, I looked at the Bronze Goddes' latest video and sure enough things were confirmed. 

Sometimes we do put limits on God and ask for small things and work our way up to the big ones.  I will no longer do this.  I have things to accomplish and I know that He is the ruler of all those things to come.  I just hope that you do the same.  We only get one life and I can't waste it on fear of being successful.  Nope, not gone happen.  Get out and make it happen :)

Until next time... Ciao!

Walking in my Destiny

Oh gosh.  I am walking in my destiny and let me tell you it is not easy.  My advice to anyone under 30, would be to take advantage of school and just get it out the way.  Finding a balance between work, home and school is my biggest issue right now.  I will make it happen, because this is the last time I will enter school.  Although this is not the point of my post I think it is beneficial. 

I have always been a person who liked to help people.  My friend use to laugh when I told her that I wanted to be a person who knew everything and would be a go to person.  This may sound kind of weird, but I like to be in the know.  My issue is is that when I get in my "loner" mood, I rarely go out and network like I should. 

On Twitter over the weekend, I realized because of my "loner" episode, I actually missed a really great brunch here in Chicago and I was super upset.  I have got to stop this.  I have so many ideas and I never do anything with them.  I sometimes feel like I am just wasting my great talents.  An ideas in your mind is just a dream and I know this.  So what am I going to do?  Hmmm...

Well first off, after my natural hair meet-up passes, in April, I will focus more on having networking events with the people who I have been in contact with over the past year.  I will be known in Chicago and other cities as the "go to" girl. I know sometimes people say that your dreams are too big, but my God is bigger and with hard work and dedication, I will accomplish everything that I put my mind to.  I hope you do the same. 

Thanks for reading... CIAO!!

Worth the Weight?

Oh gosh.  This 21 day breakthrough is not going as expected.  Of course weight loss is something that you have to really focus on and push through., but I am having a fit of a time.

I had things planned last week, in regards to when I would exercise and what I would eat, but it seems that I just can't get on track.  The weird thing is, that although I feel I need a daily "reward", what I choose is not making me feel good and I can't event taste it like I want to.  So why continue to eat it right?

Good question.  Any habit is hard to break and I to have this addiction to snacks (no joke).  Although I am not eating any meat or food, besides my fruit and veggie smoothie (not as bad as it sounds),  I had some popcorn on the evening of day one, which was this past Tuesday, then I had some chocolate today and my stomach is killing me.  *sigh*

Spring is coming, here in Chicago, and I dislike having to be fully clothed, so I need to get focused on my grind.  I will post some before pictures and start some type of exercising.  I'll be back next week with a line up of things that I would like to do with this blog.  Since I am in school, I am really going to have to figure out posting details.

Until next time... Ciao!
