Everything you choose to be…

Grateful

Grateful



Hey y’all!! I hope you’re Blessed 🙂

Ever feel like you are at the lowest & highest point of your life at the same time?
As hard as times have been, they have been equally Blessed. I can only sit here feeling eternally grateful & all smiles about the opportunities that continue to present themselves. Regardless of my flaws & (many) errors of the past, one thing that has remained consistent in my life, is that fact that I am not afraid of hard work. In fact I LOVE hard work, the challenges that occur, & of course, finding a solution. I’m still like a child with excitement at getting to stay up late & work all hours of the morning!! (The Cancer in me!)
Being back in the prescence of my parents has been essential. Through them I am re-learning values that I once used to dismiss as not being important…I am seeing the true meaning of certain things that I once used to overlook…I am motivated daily about becoming the best woman I can be, a focus that my dad had advised me within a short period of my arrival here in Spain nearly a year ago. My parents are incredible 🙂

Wedding Anniversary!

LET THE MUSIC SPEAK…

Learning lyrics...

Learning lyrics...



An Entertainer is always aware of his/her audience’s status, whether it be: enjoying the show, bored, on the dancefloor, pleasantly listening…etc
It is our duty to make sure that we perform the right repetoire. Preferrably one that is enjoyed equally by the Entertainer & the audience!

It was time for me to refresh, review & introdroduce the new! 23 songs to learn…lets gooo!

THROWBACK OF THE DAY 

‘Don’t You Worry Bout A Thing’ – Stevie Wonder



Lyrics…
Mr Wonder does it to me everytime!! EVERYTIME!!

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD! 

So my struggle to lose weight continues! Lol! Thank God I have another year to do this! I’m getting there, day by day. Remaining consistent in this area is definitely a challenge! But Ima do it! (eventually!)

Something that I used to love as a kid, especially at school when the majority my peers felt the opposite, is liver! Much to the dismay of those around me, I thought it was delicious & still do!!

Mmmm!

Mmmm!


  • 1 small(ish) portion of liver, seasoned & fried with Olive oil
  • 1 packet of noodles
  • Salad: lettuce, carrots, olives, sweetcorn, tomatoes & all that good stuff!
  • Spritz with a lil olive oil & white wine vinegar…good to go!

SO, THAT’S IT FOR TODAY Y’ALL, NEXT ENTRY WILL FEATURE ANOTHER ‘5mins 2 Shine’ SEGMENT…KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR WHO IT IS!!
My beautiful mother :)
My beautiful mother 🙂


My mother is one of my inspirations. She is always focused on being the best she can be.
Full of knowledge, my mother always has a book on the go & is filled with positive energy & words of wisdom.
Today, I embrace the following from her written notes:



“Thoughts become actions, actions become habits, habits become our character & our character becomes our destiny…”

.
