Give Yourself a Break, Superwoman

Knocking things out on your to-do list is more than satisfying; it’s almost therapeutic. How awesome is it to grab a pen and check off item after item, especially in one day? It makes you feel powerful, invincible…like you are your very own Superwoman.

 

And you are.

Asking God

Have you ever wanted something so bad? You hoped for it and maybe even dreamed about it, only to not receive it?

 

Since we were kids, we were told we won’t get everything we want and “life’s not fair,” but that doesn’t change that you’re left feeling crushed, discouraged and even angry at God. You subconsiously check off yet another thing God didn’t come through for you for.

 

This piece is not for the Christian who is in the business of manipulating God for their wants. This piece is for the Christian that has already established: God isn’t a genie. This is for the Christian that knows God can do exceedingly abundantly all that we could ever ask for or think (Ephesians 3:20) but finds themselves questioning if He would really do so for them. This is for the Christian who trusts that God has plans of future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11), but they just have no idea where in the world it is or when in the world that plan will come.

Don’t Forget Your Smile

Lately, I haven’t had the strength to write. It’s actually taking me forever to write this post and it’s so unfamiliar since I typically zone in and can write anything.

 

I’ve been doing a lot…like, running around preparing my baby sister for prom (which she absolutely slayed). I’ve been doing my church duties, friend duties, daughter duties and all the while trying to juggle my retail job, remote job, website and relentless emotional and spiritual tests. Thankfully, my list includes fun stuff, such as driving up to Canada last week for a family wedding and flying down to Georgia for another the month before. Those getaways have been so needed because I’m obsessed with my family and it brings me joy to be around them.

 

However, I am still.going.through.

How to Live in the Moment

Guys, remember track suits?! Not just any old kind, but Juicy track suits?! In middle school, every girl had at least one colorful pair. My recent collaboration with both Teen Vogue and Juicy Couture had me feeling nostalgic like man, “where did time go?!”

Embrace Your Bold | Sponsored by Banana Republic

My mom always tells me how shocked she is at who I am today and I always laugh.  Ya see, I used to be extremely quiet…so much so, that corny grownups would say “cat got your tongue?” almost everyday of my kid life. I also didn’t like people much…I preferred my mom and the rest of my family lol.

3 Steps to Take Charge of Your Life

I’m not a follower. I’m not easily swayed. I like being my own boss. I know what I want, how I want it…and yeah. I’m sure of myself…in a good, black girl magic kind of way. This past year, though?! I’ve been wrecked. Like literally, I’ve been facing situations that have rocked my world back to back. God has shown me time and time again there are simply things that I cannot control.

 

I can, however, take charge of how I respond to the situations I face in life and honeyyy, so can you. It’s time we redefine taking charge of our lives. Let’s make this quick and easy, shall we?

#teenvoguesummit soon come 💥
  • When you get a seat at the table 😭🙌🏾 Seeing my name there reminded me of all my late nights working on my website. Reminded me of my continuous battle of finding balance with all my side jobs, church responsibilities and simply taking care of myself. Reminded me of those times I️ just felt “blah” because I️ was doing all of the right things and making connections with all the right people but wasn’t yet presented THE opportunity. I️ have a long way to go but I️ have that now. My first post as a @teenvogue fashion writer is up and I have all the feels. God is working. On His own timing, but He’s working — He has never stopped ❤️ (SB: iPhone won’t let me be great but ima talk of God’s goodness anyway! 😂)
