Built for This…


At times it feels easier to deny your reality than to accept your fate.  As long as you act as if  your troubles are indistinguishable, then your triumph will feel invisible.

Incredibly, in your unchanged effort to protect your feelings, you can chip away at your Presence.



















Yes, days can be difficult and some night can even seem unbearable, but you must find the determination to be persistent in finding peace through your challenges.  You must remind yourself of your troubles and accomplishments, for both are valuable teachers.  You must learn to be your own motivator…. This is not due to the lack of support you may think you don’t have; instead, it ‘s in the reassurance that you were built for a world like this world. Your battles existed before you had anticipated them, You were built for failure to feats.



 for every major success, there are far more failures to overcome…

Sometimes the first challenge to starting your day, is deciding what to wear ~ Amoi



The Beauty in Choosing…

 The Beauty in Choosing….

Beautiful Art that fills our City Streets…

 The beauty of our days is the many opportunities we get to choose. Every day YOU get the choice to see the glass as half empty OR half full. I whole-heartedly say, choose to see yourself half way closer to your goals than farther than you are imagining. Remaining focus and ambitious isn’t a seasonal desire. You have to be eager to challenge your daily ambiguity and remain positive during the most difficult of times. You spirit cannot be broken without your consent. Your armor will become dented by the spells of life, but your spirit will not be broken….

I have the ability, no matter the circumstance in  my life, to fill my glass at least half way. I am never empty … 


Never Empty …

…Concrete Rose

 Not every flower is a Rose…

I ‘ll  grow and learn more and more about myself and all the intricate parts that make me whole. I can accept all the things that I am worth and let go of the things that break my spirit. I know that I am worthy to be loved and settling for anything less would be shameful to His creation.  Love comes from within, nourishes your soul and blossoms out.  I desire to grow and be beautiful; a concrete rose that deserves every chance, rain drop and sunshine that the lily of the valleys are garden by.  I am nothing less than the next and everything more than I can imagine. I pray to God to help me understand and accept love.  Allow myself to trust in the journeys it will inevitably bring and every promise it will deposit. I am willing to believe in myself a bit more each day, and trust in His light in every moment

Aug 2011 entry inspired by one of my favorite poem

Cover Girl

Cover-ed-up girl 
On of the most appealing attribute of a woman it to be comfortable and elegant in how she feels about herself, and how she shares that with the world.   

Women have struggled with the idealism that power is only demonstrated in two ways, but we have grown to believe and live that Our power lies within. There is an abundance of beauty in the illusion of attraction without exposure.
To take a note out of the history books, in the 16th Century, just the slight relieve of a woman décolletage was striking.  The consequently décolletage was an aspect of a woman’s fashion.  One of the most charming looks is to be completely covered and still feel chic and graceful in your own right.

Radiate Your beauty and power that lies within. The treasure of life is to discover and share who YOU are with the world.
