“Be mindful. Be grateful. Be positive. Be true. Be kind.” Roy T. Bennett
As of lately I've been way too inviting to the negativity that comes from others. So I've made a promise to myself that I will no longer invite nor will I accept negativity in my life or space. I am in a no negative zone. Whether it be negative comments or just a negative vibe.
“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” Warren Buffett
Often times individuals are way too invested in other's lives that they forget that they have their own lives that they are to live. You may know me, but you don't know my story. We have not been dealt the same cards and we have not been through the same things in life. And I refuse to let anyone downplay the things I've done and sacrificed in life to get where I am.
We must learn to not be so pushy and engaged in what the next person has going on. Instead focus on yourselves. We all have good days, bad days, and short comings. So the next time you try to down talk someone's struggles just remember that life's journey itself does not discriminate. Instead be humble and grateful for where you are in life and what you have. It's not about how many times you fall it's about getting back up and not sitting in your downfall. Enough of that I hope you guys are having a great summer. I know I am. It's time to get into this look.
STYLE MIXED WITH FASHION
Loose clothing with minimal and thin material are trending now because of the heat. This tied at the front #CropTop and Pants set screams #SummerTrends all over. It's all about comfort but still being cute so I have not been wearing much heels lately. So you know I'm loving my #BalletFlats
My summer hair and makeup is not too out of the ordinaray. Most of the time I wear my natural hair. But in this case when and if I do wear a wig I generally just slick it back in a sleek ponytail. It's easy, simple, off my back, and a perfect #summerhairstyle . I try not to do anything too crazy with my makeup but of course I still want a full glam. Luckily my makeup is oil, perspiration, and water resistant so it holds up well in the heat. For this look I went with a more subtle but still visible makeup look. I love when my makeup is still visible from miles away and not just closeup. There you have the perfect #SummerMakeup
