Before succeeding you must first lay low

Are you feeling burned out?

Tired all the time?

Everything is going wrong?

There is not enough time in the day to meet your goals?

Are you struggling with success?

You may be in a desperate state of laying low. It is impossible to pull up and succeed without laying low. 

Laying low requires for you to get away at quite place, refresh your thoughts and mind, focus on whats most important, work smart and most importantly hear the voice of God clearly.

I have been through a few lay low seasons that has positioned me towards success. In which I share in detail in Episode 10.

Here are three things to expect when you are laying low:

  1. You gain focus
  2. Your gifts become activated
  3. You obtain standards

Are you following the right vision for your life? Are you refusing to lay low? Let’s talk about it and click here.

My Personal Testimony

Today I stand as a Woman of God, Leader, Full time Entrepreneur, Podcaster and a Blogger. However two years ago, I found myself lost and confused about life. I kept saying to myself “There has to be more to life”.

After graduating from college, I began working in my first salary job as a telemarketer. Two months into the job, I knew that I was not going to be there for long.

While I was enjoying my new job and co workers, we went out to bars and drank the whole summer. A few months later, I began to hunger for something else. Drinking was fun, partying was cool, sex was cool too but I still felt like something was missing.

I knew there had to be more to life so I began to question everything around me. Why am I working in a cubicle, surrounded around angry robots? There has to be more to life.

Why are we happy its Friday and miserable when Monday arrives? There has to be more to life. This can’t be it.

In this podcast episode, I go into details on how I was able to move into a beautiful apartment in New York, find peace in my life and appear on the New York Times article in 2018.

10 things to pack for your next Vacation

Have you ever experienced packing for vacation, wishing that you had packed a few important gems? Yeah? Well that was me recently. Over the course of the Summer, I have been traveling to different places. Some places that I have been to before and others that I visited for the first time. I made the decision to pack lightly but yet I missed a few key things.


 

During my travels from this Summer I began to evaluate what worked, what did not work and what I should pack for the next time. I know that I am not the only one that can benefit from this list, so here are 10 things to pack for your next vacation:

  1. Portable Charger

  2. Extra Reading Book

  3. Extra Pens

  4. Comfortable Sneakers over cute sneakers (Preferentially with memory foam in the inside)

  5. Safety Pins (For fashion purposes)

  6. Traveling Coffee/Tea Mug

  7. Hand wipes (To keep in bag at all time)

  8. Coin purse (To store extra coins)

  9. Cocoa Butter or any natural oil (Though you can use it for almost everything, I like to use it as protection from the sun)

  10. Ziploc Bags (For your snacks on a day of sightseeing)


Some things on this list, left me feeling totally unprepared for my trips. However, I am happy to point out what not to forget for my next trip and I was also able to help some people at the same time. Which marks a great thing for me!

Is there anything that I am missing in my list? Where are you headed next for vacation?

 

Love,

Deyla

My Summer Highlights 2018

Today is the last day of Summer and I am content on how it went for me. This Summer was an unusual Summer for me due to three reasons.

1.My Baptism Anniversary 

Last year I gave my life to Jesus Christ and shortly after I was baptized. I have lived a full year walking with Christ. This thought alone amazes me. While I reflect, I cant help myself from smiling. It’s been more than 365 days since I said yes to my lord and savior and my life has never been the same. Such a blissful journey, filled with miracle signs and wonders.

Girlll, It was as if God waiting for me at the door! As soon as I said yes, he began to do immediate changes in and through my life. Cleaning things out of my heart, mind and spirit. Easy is not a word that I would use, but I would say that this walk has been meaningful. I learned not to underestimate God on what he can do in a day, let alone one whole year!

I am humbly at peace and in awe with the love of God. Because of my life transformation, I stepped into this Summer with a new mind set prepared to overcome any challenge that came my way. And that I did! Glory to God!


2. Summer Teaching 

At first this idea made me nervous because I am a fairly new teacher and I never taught during the summer. I had to remind myself that God has plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

In fact, at the end of it all I realized that I learned things I did not know about being a teacher and I also learned a lot about my students. My students and I shared unforgettable moments that I will forever cherish, throughout my teaching career.  I admit that at times I felt like I was on a roller coaster BUT it was an experience that I had to go through in order to learn things that will help me improve as a teacher and overall a person.


3. Traveling

I love to travel. I find pure joy in planning for a trip, sitting inside of a plane, checking in to a hotel and being a tourist. I love it all! This Summer I visited Washington D.C, Hawaii and Texas. I have been to Washington a few times in the past, I enjoy my visit all the time. I love visiting the African American Museum, it is filled with so much history and their gift shop is the bomb.com! Hawaii was breathtaking, I savored every bit of my stay. I recommend everyone to go visit. And Texas is my second home because my siblings reside there. Every time I visit I give and receive so much love. This was a highlight for me because I have not visited Texas since college and I missed my family so much, it was great to see them.


 

This was the first Summer of my life that I have moved so much in in such little time, collecting the beautiful memories. This is a Summer to remember.
