For the young mom

Hey Queen, let’s talk! 

Let’s talk about how you’re feeling finding out that you’re expecting…. a baby. Let’s talk about that fear that you feel when the people around you are telling you that your life is basically over. Let’s talk about those dreams that used to feel tangible and are now seeming to be out of reach. Let’s talk about it. 

Young beautiful woman, young beautiful mother I am talking to you. Let me be the one to tell you that you have no reason to be worried or afraid because your life is not over just because you’ve found out that you are pregnant. Your dreams are still achievable and you can still be and do anything that you want to. 

There is such a negative perspective that some people have towards having children and sometimes these perspectives can cause young women to get discouraged and sometimes even depressed upon finding out that they are pregnant. Although, it’s always smarter to wait until you are married and established most of the time life doesn’t pan out the way we plan them to and things may end up happening much earlier than we expected.

So here is my advice to you, it is time to pull yourself up out of that miserable state of mind and be happy about the life that God has blessed you with because children are blessings. Understand that your life isn’t over but you are certainly not a child anymore so you can’t move like a child anymore. From this point on you must make wise decisions for the benefit of you and your child. This is your opportunity to Boss up like you never have in your life. Your baby is going to be your reason to live like you’ve never ever lived before. You will accomplish more than you ever have because everytime you open your eyes and look at your child you’ll know that there is someone depending on you to be great.

I always wrote out my dreams and hopes but I was a procrastinator, honestly. Having my baby pushed me like nothing in my life ever could. She makes me want to be greater, better, stronger. Everything that I have become over this past year is because of her. I’ve accomplished things that were once just a thought I had written down on a peice of paper in my notebook. I said all of that to say this, don’t let this be a sad or discouraging time for you! Let your child be fuel to your fire because there are still great things in store for you! 

God has the ability to make every crooked way straight and every wrong – right. You will be the best mother that you know how to be and everything you don’t know you will learn. Let the mistakes of your childhood be lessons in this new chapter in your life. Most importantly Boss up because you have someone to provide for, that precious little life is depending on you. Make your dreams come true so your baby can look up one day and be inspired by you. You got this! Don’t let anyone talk you out of your dreams, don’t doubt yourself, you will have to work harder and you will have to make sacrifices but, you were made for this! 

Motherhood is so beautiful and it’s an opportunity that not everyone has had the opportunity to experience so consider yourself blessed and lucky that God chose you. I got your back and I’m in your corner. I’m praying that God will give you guidance. I pray that he will order your steps and direct your path. I pray that he will give you wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. I pray that he will give you peace that surpasses all understanding. Love you always Queen be encouraged!

If your ever need a listening ear or a prayer in your time of frustration I am here. 

Like, comment, and share with your sister or friend who needs to be encouraged. Love ya!

Below are some pictures of myself and my baby girl Skylar that have never been shared before. She’ll be two this year and the bond we have is unbreakable. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. 

Road to Royalty

 I had this vision in mind.. this vision of me being the woman I always dreamed of being. I dreamt of me being the hardest working female I know. I dreamt of being a Boss, I dreamt of being wealthy, I dreamt of my life being fulfilled, I dreamt of my visions and desires coming to past. In this vision everything I put my hands to do turned into gold. God made it clear to me what he wanted me to do. He put me in isolation where most of the time it was just me and him. I discovered that before I could be even half of who I dreamt of being I had to focus in on me. 

 I focused on me and made every detail of myself and my life my priority. My first step started with a change in my lifestyle for healthier living. I started with my trainer @musclemom and I was amazed at the difference I felt in my body by changing my diet and making fitness a factor in my life. The results motivated me to focus in every other area in my life. My inner and outer appearance got better and I got stronger physically and mentally. This is my road to Royalty.  Fitness gives me fuel to my fire. I’m so motivated by the boundaries my body breaks with every goal I set for myself and this helps me with every goal I set in life. Focusing on my fitness goals wasn’t just about a change in my physical appearance but also a change in my lifestyle. I want to live long for my daughter and I want to inspire her to chase her dreams. I want to accomplish and possess all the goals and visions I have on the inside of me. I can’t die with anything undone. 
 There are dreams that we all have for our lives. There are visions that we are dying to get out of our heads and into the world but we must plan effectively and be strategic. We must focus on ourselves and God so that we get clear instructions and we can trust our own instincts and not rely on the opinions of others. Work on yourself first so that you get into the place where you trust yourself without second guessing. Trust your journey and trust your path and don’t  ever compare yourself to others. The woman you’re destined to be is sitting on a throne waiting on you. This is your road to Royalty. Find what makes you the happiest, find your purpose, and keep pushing boundaries! Love you Queens!
