In the Mirror...

I glared into a mirror, maybe for 20min picking out all my flaws and reminding myself of things I didn’t like. I would beat myself up because I didn’t look like those girls in music videos and my hair wasn’t perfect like those girls on Instagram.

What Does Your Patience Look Like?

Patience is that one area where we can always practice and improve on. This has been a HUGE theme for me throughout the past year. I've been been tested in the areas of employment searches, friends, relationships + dating, and my own self-abilities + skills. The constant rejection, not receiving the results I wanted, and daily life revelations and own experiences and hearing other positive stories helped me come to grips with needing to improve and increase my patience.

My 600LB Life

Sometimes we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders and we wonder if we’re even strong enough to carry it all. We all experience this at some point in our lives. We take the worries and burdens of other people and lay them on ourselves; thinking we can solve every problem and change the world. And yeah, sure... in some way we can but let's be honest, we can't even defeat our own giants let alone the giants of the world. 

Where were the warning signs?

If someone would have told me that by the age of 20, I would be failing my courses, depressed for almost 2 years and losing myself because of meaningless situations with guys, I would have laughed! But that was me, pieces of where my story began and felt like it was ending all in one. 

Candidly Speaking: Why Don't You Love Me?

Let's stop supporting people and their bullshit and work towards building a better community because there is power in numbers but until our men support us women the way that we support them, we are going to stay in a never-ending cycle of broken homes, broken promises and disrespect. It's time to step up to strengthen our homes, our bonds, and our families. Then we will feel and know that love is there and never have to ask if you love us again. 

Hello, from BRITTNAY !!!

Faith- walker

March 21st was the day I put on my shoes and tied the strings as tight as I possibly could. I became a faith-walker. It was my last day working in an office that I had been part of for about ten years. I had walked away from a director level position and interrupted the dream and story that others wanted to tell.

Who's Sitting Where?

So let’s talk about the seating options. We have the front row, the mezzanine, and the balcony. Who gets to sit where and why? Think about relationships that you’ve had in the past, romantically or your favorite homegirl and think about where these people fell in your life. Most times we give people access to the front row when they’ve only earned space to be in the balcony, or better yet; wait-listed. I’ve had some great friendships that have mutually come to an end but I’ve also had some that didn’t end so well.

I am Uniquely Beautiful

Mind you I still have photos I need to get done and other stuff to prepare for the launch but I can't because I'm stuck in bed. People think that because you have a desk job you should be fine... Not my case especially working 4 days straight,  it's physically too much for me, Sad right? I had a decision to make,  do I stay at this job that I'm never going to make it on Thursday because I'm tapped out by Wednesday or do I quit?

STRAIGHT FROM FB: How Quickly Things Change in a Year

March 2017, almost the exact day to me losing my job, God sent me a blessing almost 4x the amount of debt I accumulated. Life has been kinda lit ever since. When you pray be very specific in your prayers. When you pray, have faith that God will answer them. When you pray, ask God to give you the strength to endure the journey it'll take to receive your blessings.

Trusting God's Process

When you feel like you don't have a friend, God is a friend to the friendless, God is hope for the hopeless, God is faithful to the faithless. , when you think there is no way God makes a way.  Just TRUST THE PROCESS!!!! You will hit roadblocks but let God be your back up, your AAA, your roadside assistance, your GPS and your roadmap to help you stay on the right path to your GREATER! 

Fibio & Uniquely take New York

That vision was now about to become a reality, but I was just going to New York I was going during fashion week. That in itself was such a blessing and so exciting. Although I was overjoyed with excitement I was filled with uncertainty as well because we would be driving. Fabio and I don't do road trips at all! So to prepare I literally rested my body up until it was time to leave. 

#REPOSTED | 10 SIGNS You Can Trust God.

Trust is one of the most important parts of a relationship – without it, it’s really difficult for things to actually work. But that doesn’t mean that it’s easy to develop complete trust in a person. In fact, it’s the opposite of easy… it’s really freakin’ hard, especially if you’ve been hurt and/or betrayed in the past.

.... I STILL HAVE NEVER HAD A VALENTINE

To this day, I still have never had a Valentine, but I have not been so bothered by it anymore either. I have also not been on many dates, never been in a relationship, nor have I found the love of my life. Over the years I’ve grown considerably and one of the most important things I’ve learned is that a man cannot not complete you.
