The Year of Good Vibes Only

Since the start of the Dreamworld, there’s been a constant theme of searching for my passion and ultimate happiness, while inspiring others and sharing success stories.  It’s taken several years, but I’ve finally discovered that it is hard searching for myself and inspiring all of you at the same time.   This explains my frequent breaks from blogging.  At some point, I needed to take my own advice, right?  Well, I did…and it worked!

A Letter To The Younger Me…

In life, there will be plenty of things that will happen that you may not be proud of.  Things that you’d give anything to take back or to do over.  There will be moments where you’re embarrassed or ashamed.  But it won’t all be bad…these are just the things that may interrupt your seasons of happiness and joy.   Continue reading

Would You Alter Your Dream For Love?

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking in regards to where I want to be in the next few years. Along the way it has become painfully obvious that no matter how much we plan, God has the ultimate say-so.  So, with that in mind, I can have hopes and dreams and pray that I am moving in the right direction, but I have to be prepared for things to just not go as I may want them to.

If I reflect on the past few years, there are many things that I’ve wanted to accomplish, but for some reason I meet someone special, things get put on hold, and before I realize it, years have passed and I’m left regretting not doing more for myself.  Of course life lessons came out of each experience, so I can’t be too mad at myself, but I do often wish I’d been just a tad selfish.

If I had to answer my own question, I’d say, “no, I would not alter my dream for love” because I’ve altered, paused, forgot, abused and neglected my dreams for love before.  Anyone who truly loves me will join me for the ride and support me along the way.

A Message to the Ladies…

I find it fitting to address the ladies out there, especially on Independence Day.  Being a woman isn’t easy; we are naturally emotional creatures, take many things personal and often put up with a lot of crap that we must take on with grace.  Being a woman is a responsibility.  WE, far too often, compromise our self worth, our integrity and our life, for men and for petty female drama.  It’s time to take back our self appreciation and begin to realize just how special we really are.  The second we allow and except disrespect, mental or physical abuse or anything less than high standards, is the second we give up the very thing that makes us great!  Love is not mean.  Love is not ignorant.  Love doesn’t call you “bitch” or “hoe” or anything outside of our name that is degrading.  People will only treat you as badly as you allow them.  It’s never too late to make a change or set the bar a little higher than yesterday.  Love yourself more than anyone else can and you’ll be just fine.

Sincerely,

Do You Need Some Inspiration? Here You Go!

It’s been a while since I’ve written an inspirational post and I am definitely in need of one, so this is not only for you…it’s also for me!  Here goes nothing:

This month has been CRAZY!  The word “stress” is definitely an understatement.  I’ve been so stressed that I can feel it in my shoulders, in my back, my head…just everywhere.  I will spare you the details and focus on the lessons of said stress.  For starters, I’m learning not to put my faith in man and when I say “man” I mean people in general.  I’m almost forced to only rely on God and prayer and I think that’s what I’m supposed to be doing because it’s helping.  I’m finding myself being super sensitive with just about everything, so prayer offers some solid alone time with just me and the big guy upstairs.  I need to refocus, set up a game plan and work towards certain goals within the upcoming months.

Is that enough of a pity party for you all?  Ok, it is for me so that’s where it ends (lol).  All I’m saying is, just go through the motions of whatever you may be experiencing and start praying hard.  When you feel yourself getting angry or frustrated at the world then it’s time to take a step back and just relax.  As the saying goes, it could always be worse so search for perspective.  That’s what I’m trying to do.

Are You Ready For What This Industry Will Bring?

My posts mainly focus on the positive side of the industry and the journey it takes to get to the top.  However, there is an ugly side that many fall victim to.  We’ve seen stars like Lindsay Lohan, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse and Charlie Sheen get so deep into this business that they completely lost themselves and a couple from this list even lost their lives.  So, what inspired me to address this issue?

Well, you can say that I’m watching someone (who thinks they are in this industry already) lose themselves completely.  What happens when you look around and you have no more friends left? What happens when all you can think about is getting rich, but you forget to live life?  What happens when the people closest to you are the ones that can’t be trusted?  I can’t answer any of these questions, but I can tell you this…I know some people who are able to give you the answers based off of their experiences and lifestyle.  As pretty as this “industry” may seem, I think it makes sense to build your foundation up so strong, that it can’t be shaken and you can remain humble and grounded.

30 Thursdays!

As some of you may know, I am at a turning point in my life.  I am knocking on the door to the other side of adulthood…yes, I’m turning 30!  UGH!  Some people welcome this idea, some people totally freak out (that’s me) and some don’t even think about it (totally wish this was me).  Every person has their own way of coping with the idea that they will no longer be in their 20’s (OMG I just got nervous).  So, what does this mean for me?  It means that as much as I am freaking out, I can’t stop time.  I can’t avoid turning 30 no matter how hard I close my eyes and make a wish (believe me, I’ve tried).  Having this in the forefront of my brain, I have no other choice than to go out of my 20’s with a bang!  I’ve done the necessary cleaning up in my life…you know, the getting closure on certain situations, saying good-bye to those that no longer deserve a space in my circle, moving on from hurt or just toxic surroundings and above all, nurturing the friendships and relationships with family that I am so grateful for.  I want to enter into this new phase free of the BULLSHIT (yes, I cussed).  That way I can enjoy my celebration!  Stay tuned for my mini journey details (party planning, getting the perfect dress, my freak out moments, etc.).  Thanks for taking this ride with me and feel free to offer words of encouragement and boxes of tissues!

It’s Time to Get Real! F What You Think!

I’d just like to start by saying that I’m not sorry for what you are about to read.  This is my blog, this is my mind and it’s every bit of my prerogative to share what I want with the world.  Call it a last straw, call it the straw that broke the camel’s back, call it what you want, but that moment of clarity has arrived.  When you get to the point when all you want is total and complete happiness, you are willing to do any and everything to get it, including being selfish! YUP, selfish!  It’s all about me, me and me…me.

I’m at the point where I just don’t give a hoot about certain things such as:

-People who walk out of my life

-Judgmental people

-Misplaced blame

-Ungratefulness

-Being taken for granted

-DISrespect

-Immaturity

-Stupidity

I learned a very valuable lesson this past week and that is to not allow myself to be treated anything less than what I am worth, by anyone…family included.  If you choose to not support me, that’s fine…different strokes for different folks, but please step aside and let’s do away with the fake smiles.  If you can’t be genuinely happy for me, pack your bags, your belongings, your space, your breath and exit the building.  Sometimes people put up with more than they should and they keep negativity around and they fight for something that hmmm…wouldn’t fight for them.  I’m taking back control of my life, my circle, my bubble!  I’m so focused, I can taste the success.  I will not allow myself to be derailed.  My dreams are being protected!

Thanks for reading luvs!
