Finding hope in the darkness

Have you ever been in a situation where you thought it was going to break you? Where you were almost convinced that it was going to be the end for you? Perhaps it was so bad that you felt like you couldn’t see a way out? You were so broken that you couldn’t even explain the state of your emotions..

If that was you or that is currently you, I tottally understand where you are! You are not alone.

I did not have the right words to interpret how I felt. I just wanted to lay somewhere and cry my eyes out. I did not want to speak to anyone, I just wanted to eat junk and lay in bed. It was so bad, ya’ll.

I began to ponder back and forth on how these things began to happen to me. I was all in my head, thinking about everything and how I end up where I was. In the midst of this storm, I had so much responsibilities sitting on my plate for me to take care of. I scanned through everything and laid on the floor of my bedroom asking God for the strength that I needed to move forward.

I knew that there was a supernatural strength that had to come from God that I could not supply on my own. So I took my bible, prayer shawl and wept before the Lord. I had nothing left to give and I was ready to receive from the Lord. In the midst of this, I was thinking of my role of leadership to others and how my future generation was possibly going to be affected if I was to remain in this dark place.

I literary took one day at a time, leaning on to God. And by the time I looked back, a whole month had gone by. I couldn’t believe my eyes! God had to literally shift my focus. And guess what? In the midst of it, I was able to successfully launch my podcast where I pour into people who are so eager to uncover their identity, get closer to God and truly enjoy their success.

I share this with you to tell you: Do yourself a favor and give yourself time to grow. Allow your growth to grow. You can hit rock bottom, but you don’t have to stay there. There is more to life and I promise you that this too shall pass.

When you feel like you are alone

To the person who is about to give up, ⁣

This morning I woke up with a heavy heart feeling like a lot of you are silently crying for help. You have mastered concealing your emotions and highlighting a filtered smile. It’s so easy to miss who you are but know that God knows exactly where you are and he hears your cries. You have been seeking to be saved from something that you cant’t even put into words. Something that makes you feel uneasy and desperately want to give up entirely. If that’s you, I felt you this morning and God placed you in my heart. ⁣

He wants you to know this:⁣
Your pain and tears are not in vain⁣
It’s okay not to be okay⁣
You are here for a reason ⁣
Pressure produces promotion ⁣
Oppositions builds endurance ⁣
This too shall pass ⁣

I couldn’t understand why I felt so emotional this morning until I finished recording my new podcast episode and I realized that I had to deliver this message to someone

Fall Inspired Outfit

fall

Besides Spring, Fall is my favorite season of the year. What I enjoy the most, is the ability to layer my outfit. I love to pair a simple outfit with a beautiful, rich colored coat. As we move closer to Winter, I will continue to layer my outfit before slipping into my heavy duty winter coat (which is not so cute). I must add that I had so much fun, shooting for this look; which I shared with you guys on my Instagram page. Anyways, I hope that you enjoy it!

6 places to visit during the Holidays in New York City

It is that time of the year! We must be glad and rejoice in it. Personally, it is my favorite time of the year. I love everything about it; Christmas carols, shopping, baking, gifting and enjoying this time with my family. The big apple looks its best, dressed in Christmas. Here are some places that you should visit with your loved ones:

  1. Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

    • It is finally up! The lighting ceremony took place Wednesday night and the tree will be up until January 7th. This tradition began in the year of 1933 and
    • it is still remains as a special tradition for New Yorkers.
  2. Holiday Train Show at Grand Central 

    • For 16 years, the New York Transit Museum has marked a holiday train show for families to enjoy during the Holiday season. The show will be up and running until January.
  3. Empire State Building 

    • In celebration of Christmas season, the top of the Empire State Building will be lit up in red, green and white candy cane on Christmas eve and Christmas day. Try to catch it at night time for a better view.
  4. Macy’s Santaland 

    • This is a great place to take the kids, snap some photos with Santa and save them to your Christmas album. Although I do not believe in Santa, this is a kid friendly way celebrate this season with your family. However, be advice that you must make reservations for this (new rule this year).
  5. 5th Avenue 

    • Whether you are window shopping or actually shopping, 5th avenue awaits for in its holiday gear. Enjoy the holiday window displays while walking down the avenue. To avoid traffic, I suggest visiting early in the morning on Saturday or Sunday. I promise it is worth the early rise.
  6. The Oculus

    • When I first visited, I was in awe of the architecture! Luckily, I was able to visit during the holidays so I enjoyed the pretty Christmas decorations all around. Its a transportation hub and a shopping mall, which is really cool. Besides, this is a great place to take selfies because the lighting in there is everything.

      Have you been to any of these places?

Love,
