You might be going through a rough patch in your life right now because Life always has its tolls and unfortunately we cannot run away from them. Have you ever paused for a minute and thought to yourself, ‘what if I’m giving my all to people and actually not giving myself some time to relax and love myself’.

Well honey there are times when we get so caught up in a lot of things that eventually leads to mental health breakdowns and we wonder what went wrong. Let me tell you what went went wrong. You focus too much on making other people happy and you forget about yourself and most often than not, the person who’s always there for everyone usually has no one who’s there for them.

It is hard but I’d like to encourage you to just pause and work on being in love with the person in the mirror who has been through so much but is still standing. Someone once used used an analogy or rather comparison of boarding on a plane and putting on an oxygen mask before helping someone else. So basically this tells us that you need to take care of yourself and make sure that you are 100% intact before you can actually help other people because honey your mental health sanity is very important and crucial.
The sad thing is that people take it lightly until they can no longer handle life anymore.

SELF LOVE SIMPLY ENTAILS THE FOLLOWING

#Be committed to loving yourself
#Be kind to yourself
#Clean up after yourself
#Get rid of toxic people in your life
#Always focus on self improvement
#Never allow anyone to belittle you
#Take a break for the sake of your mental sanity
#Understand that self-love is not being selfish
#Realise your self -worth and value yourself
#Learn to say No
#Attract and desire positive energies/vibes
#Do things to please you
#fall I love with the beauty of nature
#Organise your living space to be conducive
#write yourself cute love letters
#Appreciate your inmost being
#Consider that you are complete and whole

The list goes on and on but the most critical emphasis is that you should put your happiness first and then you’ll be able to love yourself and other people aswell as spread positivity everywhere you go simply because you took the decision to put yourself first.

Much love & blessings

HOW TO CREATE A DREAM BOARD

Life is so sweet and what makes it even sweeter is the beauty that is found in “DREAMS”.

Just to clarify what a dream is, let me quickly define it for you in my own words.
A dream is a beautiful thrilling vision that goes on in our thoughts through imagination coupled with a sense of hope and faith and the sub-byproduct of a dream is passion.

Now we all have dreams even those who haven’t realised their dreams yet. The power of our dreams is in our ability to envision them as though they have come true. Hence we all need to have DREAM BOARD in order to remind ourselves of the things we aspire to achieve. Let’s get to it and create our fabulous dream boards.

#STEP ONE

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

1.IMAGES/PHOTOGRAPHS
2.A BOARD OR A CHART
3.A PAIR OF SCISSORS
4.PAPER/BOARD GLUE
5.COLOURFUL MARKERS

#STEP TWO
When you have gathered of all these items you need to cut out pictures of the things you really like and would love to achieve in your life. For example you can cut out pictures of your favourite car, your dream house, dream office space, dream vacation and just about anything that makes you wanna work hard and ultimately achieve those things.

#STEP THREE
Firstly you need to be careful before you stick the pictures on to the board. I would advice you to play around with them. A little just until you figure out how you are going to place them on the board and when you already.

#STEP FOUR

Paste your pictures on the board, you can even cut out letters to construct words on some parts of your vision board. Now take your markers and write down your favourite inspiration quotes and there you have it, your beautiful Dream board.

Remember that you are not inclined to have one vision board, you can make as many as you want.

Much love and blessings

EXPERIENCE LIFE

When you go through life doing the same thing every single day you sort of get to a point where you get tired and exhausted and feel trapped. What I have learnt  so far is that even if you are doing the same thing, why not spice it up a little bit and make it fun.

It can be very stressful to not know how to have fun while working. The best thing you can do for yourself is to try and do things differently and improvise just to add a bit of spark in what you do.

As a creative, I have been having this huge problem of thinking that there is only one way of doing something and I would always do the same routine and wondered why I wasn’t getting excited but rather exhausted and drained. I then figured out that the hinderence was in following the same protocol until I allowed myself to delve into this new  sphere of life where everything is spontaneous. This new world is so fun and I get to do things my own way but with a twist everytime.

I was so afraid to showcase my creativity to the world until I decided to take a leap of faith and experience life.

The idea and whole purpose is to just have fun and be content with you are without getting off the road you were destined to travel on.

Try  being spontaneous and be free spirited and experience a surrealistic type of life where anything is possible and dreams come true. Imagine yourself in the universe Space, just flowing in the sky with no gravitational force. Let yourself go, and those creative ideas will just flow and you will become that awesome woman you aspire to be.

HOW TO GRAB THE BULL BY THE HORNS

 It is not so  often that  opportunities present themselves to you but in life you need to train yourself to be ready for the right opportunities that are in line with your vision and life goals. Most of the time we miss what could have been our breakthrough simply because we are not prepared for a change and that’s what kills most dreams. As an awesome woman it is of vital importance to always know what you want so that when you get a chance to do something that will help you reach your goals, you are able to go fo it and not mess up.

Darling you need to bear in mind that if you are going to do it,  you need to do it well or not at all, the reason being that you do not want to end up using up all your energy on things that will not help you move foward in life. So we are not testing the waters but we are going in with full force with all that we have because we care about our dreams and goals.

Here are some tips that will help you take charge of your life and avoid missing life changing opportunites.


HOW TO GRAB THE BULL BY THE HORNS


1  ALWAYS BE PREPARED

The thing about life is that it is so unpredictable and opportunies often come when we least expect them. The best thing you can do is to always hone your craft and be ready for anything that comes.


2  PUT  PRIDE  ASIDE

Sometimes our breakthough comes in somewhat weird or mysterious ways that we had not imagined but when this happens  we need to look on the bright side of life. Never ever care about what people will think because wether they are thinking or not thinking, if they can’t help you then why should you care?


3 NEVER SAY NO TO AN OPPORTUNITY

By this I mean that, if you are presented with something that is sort of foreign to you and what you know, just say yes and then learn how to do it. It’s as simple as that.


4  BE OPEN MINDED

This is one of the most important aspects that any successful person will tell you about. Never ever be focused on one way of doing something because sometimes things don’t turn out the way they are supposed to, so If there is a mountain infront of you and you cannot climb it, why not try going around it?


5 GRAB IT AND DONT LET GO

Just jump into the unknown and believe that  you can do it. A positive mind leads to a positive life and this means that when you realise that everything in life happens for a reason then you will not worry about how to get about doing stuff  but you will eventually learn and master it.

I hope these tips will help you to stop being hesitant when opportunities come your way and please do not dispair but always be prepared.

BE STILL YOUNG WOMAN

Honey I know that right now you are probably thinking¸ why am I not where I want to be in life?. Well thing is, we are all travelling on different roads and your journey cannot be the same as another person’s journey because our lives were created to be different so that we may share our experiences with others and that is the beauty of life. Someone might have gotten everything at the same age as you are but what if God has something huge coming your way and the only way to reach to that level you have to go through stormy weather and stumble across huge rocks and cracked roads and climb mountains and hills. What I love about hardships is that they do not last forever and that is why most of the worlds successful people have a story to tell about how they got to where they are today.

I always emphasize on the fact that you need to have a higher power which you are accountable to, you know, something that you believe in, so that you can always ask that higher power to guide you on your journey. God says that ‘ I know the plans I have for you, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you’. If you can just believe in Gods perfect plan for your life then you won’t have to worry about your current situation and why you are going through those hardships. See God is the creator of the Universe so nothing is impossible for him and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts and so are his ways.

Oh darling please be still and understand that tough times never last but tough people do and this is just something that is moulding you to become that awesome woman you have always dreamt of becoming. Well in the meantime be that woman who goes after what she wants without contradicting and compromising her morals. Remember that success doesn’t happen overnight but through hardwork, commitment and always going the extra mile when doing the things you love.

You will get there, but for now baby girl, just hang in there.

How to Have that LADYBOSS hustle

Dearie, please believe in yourself, your prayers and your hustle. You need to understand that most  successful ladies are  where they are today simply because they believed in themselves and  they never let anything discourage them. The thing with a woman who is embarking on ‘the journey’ to success, but seems not to be progressing is that you contradict yourself by doing things that have nothing to do with your goals. Come on you smart woman,see, giving up is not an option. You need to grind and hustle until you reach your destination.

Now you need to have that Girlboss/ladyboss hustle where nothing can stop you  from reaching your dreams and  when you are driven by that type of spirit coupled with determination and passsion you will ultimately accomplish your mission and goals.  A ladyboss is that awesome woman who is determined to embark on a journey less travelled because she is driven by passion and she knows what she wants.


BE SET-APART FROM THE CROWD

You need to be set-apart  and be that one of a kind type of woman. Be out of reach especially to  controvertial issues that have nothing to do with your journey or mainly issues that will not help you grow to become the woman you ultimately want to become. Never focus on set-backs because   the comeback is always stronger than that, so when you face challenges and difficulties stay strong and know that your hardwork will eventually pay off.


STOP WATERING DEAD PLANTS

You must also be smart enough to know when to let go because in life, there are some things that just won’t work no matter how much  effort you put into it, so stop watering dead plants because you will just be wasting your energy.Darling take a moment and do some self-reflection in order to find out why you do the things you do, and if it is beneficial to you  and that will help you correct your mistakes and better yourself.

OH awesome woman! hustle hard, go out there and get things done with that Girlboss/ladyboss hustle. I promise you the universe will respond  positively.
