Can’t sleep


My inability to sleep at night causes me to wake up and write.  I’m starting to believe my fate and destiny are at work.  Maybe that’s for the best, because I think some of my best post are born out of my midnight lack of slumber.

Well here are my updates thus far:

  1. I’ve pinned the titles for the chapters in my book and I must say, I can’t wait until it’s finished.  It’s going to be awesome and very inspirational!
  2. I’m writing in my journal more often.  My thoughts, plans and feelings, are helping me become more organized and reopening those once closed doors of my creativity.
  3. I’m planning more family time, and things to do.  Which makes for happier kids and wonderful childhood memories.
  4. I’m working on planning out my meals so that I can become more creative and eventful with my cooking.
  5. I have not figured out what personal URL I want for my blog, still working on it.
  6. I have yet to start my makeup instruction classes for young ladies and women looking to learn how to create an everyday, natural look; and take that look into an evening look.  As well as teach them basic skincare techniques to maintain healthy looking skin underneath their makeup.
  7. I also want to begin to scout Chicago for new and hidden ventures that would be fun for family.
  8. This is also the week that I start my 21 day jump activities.

All of these activities will help me stay in line with the majority of my plans and goals for 2017.  I want to make this year and the years to come, more and more memorable.  I do not want to have any what ifs, I want to take advantage of everyday and make the most of it.  Charting my goals and progress is not only going to keep me on track, but maybe it will help someone else.  We’ll see!!

9 Days In


My goal to be consistent this year, is going as good as can be expected.  I have begun keeping a journal again.  It mostly contains my thoughts, plans for the day and/or what my day consisted of, as well as goals that I have begun completing and crossing off this year.  I’m glad to say that I am off to a great start, considering I’m 9 days in.  This is my 2 post this year.  I plan to keep this up!!

I can honestly say that when you are born to do something.  Thoughts, ideas, and creativity just seems to come out of the woodwork and you should act on it, or your purpose will be stagnated.  With that said, I have so much material to share with you for this blog, and I’ll reiterate, we’re only 9 days into the new year; which fills me with great joy.  I can’t wait to impart with you my plans that are on the horizon, and also get your feedback on other issues of importance to me.  I am also planning to do the Jump Challenge with Steve Harvey and other members of the Harvey Nation.  I logged in to do it the first time around, but I knew there were other goals I wanted to begin on and complete first.  I checked every email and logged the task for that day in my goal book (yes I have a professional looking book that I write all of my plans, goals and accomplishments in.  It also serves as a way of keeping myself on track and keeping my goals in front of my face daily)  As I accomplish each goal, I cross it off and move to the next one.  I love this jump challenge and I will start it officially on tomorrow. This works best for my schedule and I can only move to the beat of my own drum if I plan to accomplish my goals in my time frames this go around.  My 9 days has started off with a bang!!

Have any of you started/finished the Jump Challenge the first time around, or is this going to be your first time doing it? What goals have you accomplished thus far for the new year?  If you plan to start, let me know, so that we can be each other’s accountability partners.

Happy New Year


Welcome to 2017. I feel greatness, peace, tranquility, love, happiness, success and immeasurable blessings on the horizon.  I’ll keep you updated on all of these facets in the days, weeks and months to come. I wish all of these things and more for you as well.

This year I’m working on consistency and releasing the spirit of procrastination.  Writing is my joy and I have missed it tremendously. So I’m back at it!!  Also, I’m currently working on creating  a personal URL for my blog, as I want to take this more seriously. Which leads me to another one of my goals this year, and that is to make progress on finishing my book. I will enlighten you on that as well, in the weeks to come.

Happy New Year and I wish you blessings, on blessings, on blessings!!

A Creative Mind Never Sleeps


Where Creative Minds Lie

Have you ever went to bed at 10:00 p.m., and wake up early feeling refreshed and ready to get the day started, only to realize that it’s 1:00 a.m?

Well this happens to me alot.  I have come to realize that my mind doesn’t rest as often as I would like, because I am a naturally creative being.  I can’t sleep because there is a need for me to create with a significant attention to detail, even during unconventional hours.  This is partially the reason I am in the Wedding/Event Planning business.

I remember, how more than ten years ago that I could never completely rest until I woke from my sleep to write down everything that was on my mind.  These were my best written masterpieces.  As of lately, the pen has been calling my name.  I abandoned writing around the time I had my first child.   I feel that the time has come for me to revisit my first love, writing.  I have so much to share with the world.  In the days ahead, be prepared, because I’m going to enlighten you with my version of “Straight Talk, No Chaser”.

Get ready for laughs, positive energy, motivation, spiritual reflection, inspiration, the hardcore truth, and the rebirth of writing, Da Fyrst Lady style.

Now it is time, for my head to meet my pillow, and make the sweetest music ever.  SLEEP
