New Year: Thirty Deuce

  1. So along side a special someone coming into my life, this summer I celebrated my birthday. This is also something I look forward to this season . A celebration of birth is like hitting the reset button on your life. Its your personal “new year”. Set new goals you want to obtain for yourself. I always have enjoyed celebrating my birthday. Now that I have reached the age of 32 (ThirtyDeuce) there are some “major keys”🔑🔑🔑 I wanted to share with you all.
    🔑1. What you put out is what you shall receive. 

I didn’t fully believe this until this year. I am constantly reminded of the person I am through the ppl I surround myself with. Not only are they good to me but they are directly an extension of me. The love and the appreciation I was shown for my birthday was more than I expected. It started with a couple of my girlfriends taking a wine tasting tour with me in the Hamptons. (If you haven’t done a wine stating tour, I suggest you do one before the season is over!) From my students getting out of their classrooms to make it to my office to send me a warm greeting to my coworkers laying out a huge spread of caribbean food with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I have always been a fan of LOVE and I truly believe the best way to receive that is how you treat others.

🔑2. LOVE Yourself

What you listen to, what you read and what you eat can make an impact on yourself. You show LOVE to yourself by what you allow to take up space in your heart, mind and body. I have learned that taking the time to nourish, cultivate and feed every part of you will automatically lead to a better you. How do you talk to yourself? Are you using positive words of affirmation? Do you spend time looking at your reflection ? Taking in the beautiful being God has created? If you have not done so yet I suggest you get a head start. Remember to LOVE another is to first LOVE yourself.

🔑3. Have Faith & Keep The Faith

Yes. Yes. And Yes. I cannot stress this point enough. Having faith is so crucial to our everyday existence. We live in a world that is unknown, unforeseeable and

our path uncharted. I believe that the Lord is truly our flashlight throughout life. He is the one who sharpens our vision and He knows when to brighten our light. Believe that everything your going through is preparing you for your next step, your next phase, your new chapter. Grab your faith like you do your favorite shade of lipstick and never let it go.

May these keys be a blessing to you as they are for me and take you into your next steps in life. For all those who have a birthday coming up, I wish you a Happy Rebirth and New Year!!❤️

Twenty “Sweet” Sixteen


We are two days into the new year and let me tell you, it feels GREAT!
I really can’t describe this feeling but it is like I have a rush of butterflies fluttering around in my heart. Something just feels different. Maybe I am different. I think I have such a better understanding of who I am and what my purpose is on this earth. I have a strong core of friends and family that I love dearly. I have done a good job at screening what needs to stay and what needs to go out of my life. So my theme for this year is: Investment. Consider yourself the ultimate investment. If you do this, you will be careful to choose who and what you give you’re time to.

Make sure that you are becoming richer as a result of of the investment. You are growing in your friendships, personal and professional relationships and even in conversations. Yes, a conversation is the sharing of ideas and thoughts and words that takes place with at least one person. What we hear and listen to has an impact on how we feel. Our mental and personal health is also vital and should be strengthened, conditioned and restored on a daily basis. It is vital that we look to receiving the best product of ourselves. This all happens by what we invest in.

This year I want you to make smarter decisions in what you invest in.

 

If it does not make you grow, Let It Go.

 

Take more chances, make better financial choices, see another part of the world, eliminate fear from your heart and trust in the Father up above.

Believe in LOVE and know that your special someone is coming.

Cheers to Love, Life and the continued pursuit of happiness! ❤️
