Journey to starting a business

So me and my best friend have been on this business journey for about two years.It has been a journey of many lessons.The fear at the beginning,the open mindedness like a child.This journey has taught me,strength,fear,hope,how to feel like a failure,how to see hope in every opportunity.It has been an awakening,learning who iam,and finding out for definite where my passion lies,to do what I love and to help others.SIMPLE.
As my readers I hope you have found or is yet to find what makes you tick.Find that and you find your passion and their lies your life’s purpose.Remember Tip toe if you must,just take the step.Have a great holiday y’all. M.x 😘

Rumblings of my mind

So it’s late and Iam thinking about life.Does it always seem that you can’t catch a break,so you work hard.But things never seem to just happen for you,you even pray harder but you feel that you don’t see the blessing.However you see your friend that does take short cuts in life.Their life seems easy,even worthwhile.Well I found a divine truth today whilst meditating.That ….a life of short cuts is just that….CUT SHORT in some way or another.In life you mustn’t take short cuts.Sometimes we all need someone to remind us.That the hardest path is sometimes the best.Short cuts may get you where you want to go quick,but the hard road in all it’s trials and difficulties reaffirms who you are,strengthens you,helps to be reliant on Jehovah.The difficult road brings pain,hardship sleepless nights,and days of doubt.But all the unseen positives,is how it helps u to have tough skin,making you rise above what you even think your ever capable of enduring.So next time you want to take the short cut,pause for a second and think what it’s worth….

RIO <3

Rio,is the name of the kid that inspired me today.As the year has gone by,I have made it a point to find inspiration in everything in my life.And this kid just did it for me,care freely unaware of his demeanor(which is more adult like than childish) I was amazed at how such a young boy could have such a grand perspective of life and honestly this inspired me.So I say down with him and had a little chat,within 5 minutes mind boggling things poured out I this child’s mouth,like how he wants to be successful and how he believes in Hod and is a christian(this amazed me,as you do not find many people able to stand for what they believe let alone a 10 year old.RIO reminded me that their is an array of people out in the world that are willing to inspire and want to meet people to inspire.He also reminded me that you don’t have to be old to be wise.The bible says out of the mouth of babes wise sayings come,in this case wisdom did truly shine forth.I Give a grand shout out to his parents Ade and Tia-Marie for being an inspiration to your kid who has then gone on to inspire others it reminds me of Kid president.Yall check it out and let’s share what you think 🙂 Kid president link
