Journi’s Motivation

“Everything will fall into place when you stop being comfortable in one place!”

Being in a comfort zone makes it hard for you to move forward and progress in the things you’re going after. A lot of the time people are stuck in comfort zones because they are afraid of the unknown! However, the unknown can take you beyond your current level! You have to be willing and motivated to go hard for what you want.

There may come a time in your life when you are feeling burned out and lost. However, you must not let those feelings take over your life.

“Breathe, This is just a chapter not your entire life,” say S.C Laurie. Indeed this quote is true. You must breathe and reflect on whats happening around you so you can figure out what changes need to be made in order to make things better than what they are.

Life is indeed a journey and we must deal with it the best way we know how.

Dear Sis, You Have The Power!

Dear Sis,

Don’t be afraid to express yourself. You have the power to change the world in so many ways. You may be afraid of failure and that’s OKAY! Sometimes you have to do it wrong just to get it right! Those who succeed never get it completely right the first time. Everything takes time no matter what it is.

Things will unfold exactly the way you want them to and exactly the way they should when you stay true to your purpose and self! One thing to remember is hard work and consistency is the key. It can become hard when there’s a lot of things to execute; staying focused will keep the flow going.

There’s so many things that will hinder you from staying focused but you must find a way to keep your dream a live and thriving!

As a young girl one of my aunties told me if I wanted something I needed to put my shyness to the side, speak up and go after what I wanted. Auntie spoke the truth! You can not be shy or timid when it comes to getting what you desire. So many things happen outside of the comfort zone! It’s up to you to knock down the barriers in front of you and get started on crushing goals and making dreams come true. Your dreams and your goals are entirely up to you to accomplish not your best friend, parents, siblings, professors or mentor! These people can push you, motivate you, listen to you, and support you however, everything is up to you to execute and kick ass doing it!

Your strength and your inner power will keep you grounded and motivated to keep going. You’re a smart individual and you know what it takes to make things happen. You just have to do it!

Yours Truly,


“You Have The Power”

When you start letting go of things that’s hindering you from moving forward you will feel better within! Access to locked doors and new destinations will be granted during the process.

Sometimes things will happen when you least expect them to: sometimes good, sometimes bad.

What really matters is how you handle yourself when the unexpected happens.

Believe it or not you can be blocking your own happiness and blessings in life. You will miss out on a lot in life if you don’t let go of things that’s constantly pulling you down, taking you back to old places, and experiencing the same pain over and over.

Life is too short and there’s so much to experience!

Start enjoying life’s Journey!
