Today's my birthday. This day feels special, even more than it did when I turned 21. Then, my only goal was to get carded so I could boldly show I was of drinking age and party with my friends. It wasn't that long ago, but feels miles apart. Today, I woke up feeling like a full-fledged woman. I am a full-fledged woman. On my journey through womanhood, I'm lucky enough to have learned a few invaluable life lessons.
Here are my #25truths:
- I am a master manifester. Everything I've wanted, desired, and needed, has happened when I needed it most. I spoke it out loud and took action to bring it into my life
- I am not broken. I am so much stronger than I have given myself credit for in the past.
- Bad relationships are just that...bad. There's no need to sugarcoat it; staying won't give you a medal of honor. I learned to ride or die for myself, and my self worth.
- Becoming a mother didn't cripple me; in fact, it pushed me so much further. Thanks Ayo.
Create the life you want to live. Be intentional about it.
- Traveling allows you to face the unknown, seeks truths, and have an adventure. Be open to new cultures and traditions. We all have a story.

- I am abundant.
- Success isn't hard, focus is. Watch your circle and mind your actions.
- Your words hold power; make sure they're used to build not tear down.

- I love ratchet music. I love meditation. It's called balance.
