This Christmas was amazing! First off, the weather was perfect! I enjoyed every moment of the warm sun shining down on this beautiful day Jesus was brought into this world. I wrapped my gifts really late (which means on Christmas Day...lol). Nonetheless, I thought I would share a few gifts I purchased for my best friend (B). B is tall and lean so I knew I would have to get him something with long sleeves in it. I thought the shirts below and the MK Cologne "Cityscape" from my Mary Kay Consultant and former recruiter Atiya McNeal, would be just the appropriate gift for this holiday season. The cologne has a clean, sophisticated smell, that isn't too loud and he can dress the shirts up or down. I like the fact that me and B (bestfriend) has the same style. This made it a little easier when shopping for him.

Hi, if you have found your way to my blog I would like to tell you that today is a very special day. Today is my 32nd birthday! I hold so many titles but my favorite one is "overcomer." I’m a woman who has experienced many things from jealousy, to hatred, to physical and verbal abuse and out of all those things I’m still standing. Life is no fairytale, however God still has the solution to any problem you may face.
My mood today is thankful, I’m too blessed to be tripping about anything old or new. There will always be things you can trip out about, however growth is when you choose happiness and to focus on all the good things. The small things are just distractions and are there to stop you from being your best self.
No one knows your story, we all have one. Make sure you are using yours to uplift someone else. Don’t allow your circumstances to make you bitter. You’re stronger than anything that can come up against you and you deserve a peace of mind and happiness. Happiness and resentment can’t co-exist. On this day as I celebrate another year that I’ve walked with God and family and friends here on earth, I stand proud of what I chose not to allow to consume me. I stand proud of the fact that not only did I survive every attack that threatened my life, but I am thriving gracefully.
I'm an East Carolina University alumna. I have experience in journalism, law, radio broadcasting, television production and teaching. My goal is to make a difference in the world through media and motivational speaking.
