Trip to Aspen, Colorado 

Hello!

  For my anniversary with my husband, we went to Aspen, Colorado. It was breathtaking. The people there were rarely on their phones and spent time reading newspapers. It reminded us that we needed to slow down too. We packed only a carry-on bag so I didn’t have room to bring my camera but I did take some pictures: 

 

Right before our couples massage. It was so relaxing!

We rode a gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain. It was beautiful! 

It snowed on and off for two days!

Growth 

Hello,

   This past week, I celebrated my birthday. I celebrate my birthday for a full week. I believe that your birthday is not “just another day.” Your birthday is a gift. You e been gifted with another year of life and that should be celebrated. It was a great day to do some self-reflection. I realized that I’ve come a long way. I’m not as critical of myself and I’m way more balanced than I was a year ago. I’m a lot more patient with myself and less judgmental of my emotions.  I’m not perfect, of course but I think recognizing my growth is a step in the right direction towards my purpose. 

  It might not be your birthday but maybe you need some self-reflection. When was the last time you were kind to yourself? The last time you were sad, angry, or upset did you judge yourself or acknowledge that you are a human being who has emotions? Moving forward, lets both take a vow that we’ll choose to be a lot kinder to ourselves.

You Are Loved

Hello,

   Get this down in your spirit: you are loved. It doesn’t matter what you mistakes you’ve made, God has a never ending love for you. God loves you right where you are. He loves the real you and there is nothing you can do about it! As children of the Most High, we have direct access to a God who pursues us with His love even when we make mistakes. As you go about your week, rest in the fact that His faithful love is pursuing you. 

Self Care & Relaxation 

Hello,

   I had a conversation with my esthetician today and we both were talking about things we used to do. For example, we used to take relaxing epsom salt baths but due to our schedules getting busy, we’ve stopped. I get it, we’re all busy nowadays but we need to make ourselves a priority. So I made it my mission today to take some time out for me and have a relaxing bath. It might not seem like much but it was exactly what I needed. Reading this, I hope you realize that you’re worth being a priority on your to-do list.  

All Things are Working for Your Good. 

Hello,

  Know in this moment, God is working ALL things for your good. Let this be your reminder that you are God’s biggest deal, and He loves to see you win! This includes the “good” and the “bad” stuff. He can and will work it out for your benefit. So you can rest easily in whatever is going on in your life. God has you in the palm of His hands. I’m talking about this a little further on my website for my boutique

Great Things Never Come From Comfort Zones 

Hello!

   Yesterday my boutique got to be apart of an event called The Beauty Standard. It’s an event that happens annually in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. At this event, the focus is celebrating the diversity of beauty. While I was at this event, I had the opportunity to sell some of the clothes I have at Queen Styles Boutique. It was fun but hard. It’s not my personality to speak with lot of people. I’m an introvert. Not that I’m shy but I just process my energy differently. I recharge my batteries when I’m alone, not when I’m with people. While I was at this event, I had to remind myself that great things are never accomplished from comfort zones. I kept pushing myself out of my comfort zone and accomplished goals I set for myself. Whatever you’re dreaming about, remember that great things won’t come from your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to push yourself to get what you want. Here’s a picture of my booth:

It’s Okay to Say When You’re Afraid 

Hello! 

      This past week marked two years since having to have part of my colon removed. My husband and I go hiking every year in August to celebrate God’s healing power. Each year we hike the same trail. This year the park revamped the trails and we had to hike a different trail unexpectedly. At first, I was anxious about hiking the new trail. I hadn’t prepped for it mentally or physically. I contemplated turning around(many times) but I kept saying under my breath “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Sure enough, we finally reached the top of the mountain and it was beautiful. My point here is this: don’t be afraid of letting God know when you are afraid. He can handle it. After all, the scripture says “He is made strong in our weakness.” Here are some photos from our hike:

You Serve a Greater Purpose 

Hello!

   Did you get a chance to see the solar eclipse yesterday? If you were here in the states, it was a spectacular event. If you didn’t, NASA has some great photos on their website. I’m not sure about you, but when I was watching the eclipse, I felt a lot of worry leave my mind. It was so easy to just focus on what was happening in that moment and realize that I was apart of something greater. The solar eclipse put things into perspective for me. We face a lot of distractions on a daily basis(our jobs, family, finances, politics, and etc) it’s easy to forget that we are apart of a bigger picture. I believe that every single organism serves a purpose, that includes you and me. I’m not sure what you’re facing but always remember that you are here for a reason and serve a greater purpose. 

Don’t forget to check out my online boutique. I’m launching some more fall merchandise next week!

What do you do with Fear?

Hello!

  Being a business owner is a wild and tiring ride. There are days my fears try to get the best of me. When I wonder if I have what it takes, what people think of Queens Styles Boutique and if I’m making the right decisions. When fear sets in, I have to become self-aware. Why am I feeling like this? What triggered this feeling? Is this feeling based on facts? I’ve learned that there’s nothing wrong with the emotion of fear(I’m human after all) but what am I going to do with that emotion? Am I going to let it hold me captive or press my way through it? You know the answer! So the jumpsuit below can be purchased on my website: Queen Styles Boutique.
