#Motivation Monday - Happy Holidays!

IMG_0045.jpg

Hello Everyone,

I don’t know about you but the holidays seem to have snuck up on me this year. To look back the year has been a blur and then all the sudden Thanksgiving is gone and we are on to Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa celebration’s.

I come from a large family and Christmas time is always one of music, food, giving back to others and lots of laughter. The official beginning of Christmas season in our household growing up was the playing of the Temptations Christmas album. When mom threw that on…. Oh yeah, Christmas time had arrived.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from to you and yours!

Ciao!

#WisdomWednesday: Missing Dad

Hello everyone,

In November 2017 I lost my father. A thought and idea that no “Daddy’s girl” ever could believe would be a reality. Tears are never far from my eyes when I recall the childhood memories, parties, music, concerts, lessons, lectures and laughter. My father was not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but, supportive of his family, loyal to his friends and down for his children.

I share this quote, as it captures the stage I am presently in…

To Lose someone you love_alter your heart forever.jpg

As I began to see my father age and knew that the end was too close for comfort, I wrote a song entitled ‘Superman’ as a tribute of love.

Take a moment today to tell someone that you love them and appreciate the relationship that you share. Life is precious and very, very short.

#MotivationMonday - Learn Something New

Learn something new everyday!

Hello Everyone,

As I draft my schedule for this week, I have several projects pulling on my time and focus. The projects are a mix of ones that I am leading, some are collaborative in which I am a contributor but we differ in opinion in the execution.

For a few days I have had to pray and been frustrated about the projects in which there are differing opinions but this morning I am surrendered. I will speak my truth in regards to the roll-out but, I have decided to also be a learner.

This quote is my Monday Motivation, a great reminder to be careful what I lend my power too. Learn from my co-workers but to learn something on purpose, the world is bigger than my desk and my to-do-list.

Let’s make today count.

Ciao!

#WisdomWednesday - Take time to believe in others

Hello Everyone,

Today I woke up thinking about my Father and how he blessed my life by believing in me. Though he is no longer with us physically, his lessons and love live on.

Today is #ThrowbackThursday - Sisters are your first friends

"A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost." — Marion Garretty

Hello Everyone,

As I think of my sisters this quote made me smile. Growing up with these ladies Vanessa (to my left) and Valerie (to my left) was and is a delight and a joy.

The picture in white is a Throwback from the time that my sisters treated me to a birthday trip to Miami. Such sweet time, plane drama, airport breakdown, warm tropical rain showers, laughing until we cried, yummy food, all white party…hey the rest stays in Florida!

Though not a Throwback, I couldn’t leave out our sister Deavon (on the far right with the jazzy hair cut)

Do you have sisters? How about a little ‘show and tell’?

Ciao!
