Deciding how much skin to show on the Gram:





This past summer, I had the opportunity to visit Atlanta. I've been to Atlanta several times, throughout my life. Visiting as a woman in her mid 30's, about to relaunch educational program. 
This trip had a special meaning.  To see the state of growth within the black community, shown so strongly there. Is a great source of inspiration. I can honestly say, I didn't know how to reach my full potential. This was problematic to my spirit. I know greatness is accessible, I just had no idea how to reach it.
   Being in a great space again (mentally) I am ready to go after all of my goal again.
One point of getting things in order was to get active again. I am sure many of you have seen the picture where I gained a lot of weight. I was depressed, emotional eating was a big thing for me.

A lot of people have asked what were the steps I took. First one was a mental step. I was tired of being sick, and tired.  I start to move (get active),  I was in a place of isolation. I was moving, and operating in a space of darkness. I had to change almost everything. The places I was hanging out, some of the people I was spending time around.  Things I was giving my attention to.


 As a youth I naturally had a great body. Unfortunately I did not know about the importance of eating right, and working out. As a young woman who enjoyed clubbing a little too much (the knot on my head is evidence). I picked up some of unhealthy habits. Eating out late night, drinking way too much. And of course a love of greasy fried food. What else do you use to soak up the alcohol?

I took on some very unhealthy coping mechanisms. I was an emotional eater, and dependent on alchool as an escape from my problems.  A result was being diagnosed with high blood pressure. I knew I had to make a change. Plus falling down stair in a night club was a big wake up call.



Well I was in Atlanta I had the chance to a photo-shoot with my Sorority Sister Cat Harper ( I am an honorary member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc.).

While I was excited to do this shoot, I was nervous about the images I was putting forth. While I've been on my journey of reengaging, I am starting to fall back in love with my self. When you feel good, taking pictures is really fun.  When given the opportunity to shoot, I had a vision. Wearing nothing but a shirt. Now I wanted this shoot to be classy but sexy (I am 34).

This was a  challenge. I have so many young girls who follow me. I did not want to disappoint their Mothers, or the church Mother's 😁.

One thing that bothers me is seeing so many young women. Being overly sexual in their pictures.
 I want convey something simple but beautiful without showing too much.
It's OK to be beautiful but make sure you have a beautiful mind, and spirit to match. Also make sure the words that come out of your mouth have meaning.


Thank you to Cat Harper Photography https://www.catharperphotography.com/ for this beautiful images.

  2. You are such an inspiration. Living with HIV and speaking openly about it is a different ball game. Having the right mindset and as you have said in your post having the right people in your life will contribute to living well and healthy.

  7. EFFECTIVE LOVE SPELL TO GET EX HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND OR EX WIFE/GIRLFRIEND AND CURE HERPES AND INFERTILITY THAT WORKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.

     Contact Dr. Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats App/CALL +2348167159012

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.  

    Contact his email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com
