Thanks of the Month: Thanks go to God. He has covered me for 27 years. He loved me when I didn’t love myself. In my darkest hours, when I wasn’t singing his praises, he still got me through. He is my foundation. He supplies all my needs. In the last couple of weeks, I have heard him and have learned how to be still. He told me via songs, movies, TV shows & even a 2012 sermon from Joel Osteens. I am learning and listening.
Highlight Of The Month: Razzoo is with my bestie Rocquelle in Austin, and what many of you do not know is, prior to moving back to Texas I hadn’t seen Rocquelle since I transferred college in 2005. We have had a long distance best-friend relationship every since. *laughs* It was great to see her in Austin. We got to laugh (in person) together and do some fabric shopping at Ikea. This year I plan to see Rocquelle and her awesome momma even more.
Pits of the Month: For the last several months, I have been talking about the Pop Up Shop Tour non stop. It’s really sad Atlanta did not happen this month. There was a lot of work put into the pop up shop but things were not adding up to benefit Carrie nor I. When you put time and funds in to build something, it’s sad when things do not work out. We are not sweating it because we’re working on our next city. Plus I’m making some serious changes to the plan. We learned so much with Atlanta and now we know exactly what we need to do next time.
Entrepreneur Rollacoster Ride: Everyday, there is something new that occurs in my life as a business owner. No days are alike and it’s kind of cool. You are painting a new canvas for your life daily. This month had several down moments, but there were some highs. I have learned to focus on the silver lining in every situation. Things I wanted to happen this month didn’t happen, but it’s okay (lessons learned). Everything you dream of does not need to happen in your life–sometimes it’s best they remain dreams. I’m launching a new project tomorrow so hey, it’s a new day and a new opportunity to succeed.
As always, I hope my words are helping someone. To know your vision is good enough, do not measure your success with your neighbor’s success-ruler. You are destined for greatness. Stay humble. Remain grateful and know God’s time is perfect.
