So many have asked me where I have been and when is my book coming out, when are more projects coming and what am I planning next………Well First let me say this… I cant believe i am actually writing a book let alone writing an authentic no holds barred type of book, but its coming, its all about timing, with so many new things being released I had to balance some things but can I be honest with you…I mean REALLY honest for a second…?
I am not a normal person. Despite being in the public eye I am an introvert, I love hard and give alot of myself but I am very selective with whom I share space and energy with. I am not a group thinking type of woman, not monolithic at all. I have a love hate relationship for social media and media as a whole, For years I battled writing. Like the thought of actually writing exactly what i felt frightened me. Not because I didn’t think I would be good at it or because I thought people would like it or not. The truth is i never wanted to care if they did or not. I hated the media, truth is I am still not a huge fan of it, Continue reading The truth about why I hate the title ” Blogger” and It’s Negative Impact in Society ………
Today is day 3 of the Journey to Better Cleanse & detox Challenge, and as ive stated before the original Journey to better for me was a very very personal one. I didn’t share much of my journey partly because i didn’t realize it was one, I just knew that I was in such a very dark place, full of heaviness and in a place of numbness. I had lost myself. The world on the outside could see nothing was wrong, but i knew. So i made the decision to shut everyone out, and really dig deep. I wrote out all my goals, dreams, fears and began the process of finding myself from inside out, I went through an entire process of detox, and during this time I had just completed filming for Our Documentary, and after doing so many interviews, and speaking to young girls, i…

Lets face it, we have goals we want to achieve and things we desire to have in life but there are a few things holding us back. Old Hurt, old baggage from childhood, anger issues, lack of self-control, lack of organizational skills, no actual plan of how to work towards the goals you want set, home is chaotic, lacking stability, old traditions, phone log full of too many ” In case of people” You know the ones, you call in case you are drunk texting,or in case you are bored, or in case you wanna gossip, etc so on. Not that these things feed into your life to assist in growth, but because they “Fill”your life to take up the empty space you can’t figure out within yourself to actual address. Those are stand by drainers. As dysfunctional as they may be , and no matter how miserable you…

Truth is so many people will never get any further than they currently are for this one main reason…….They possess and live off of the woe is me, Ive been defeated mentality. What is that? It’s the prison in your mind that keeps you chained to your past, who hurt you, what you didn’t have, who took what, what mom did, why dad wasn’t there, what you have lost , your financial status, etc so on. I know you are thinking, well I cant get over it,

So we are on Day 23 of Phase 2 Journey to Better Challenge, and so far the main focus has been on Mental, Emotional,& Spiritual health. Reason being is so many focus on the outer results and miss the key elements resulting in yo yo dieting and not many results that last beyond the moment you are in. This journey is about sustaining lasting results, and this is only obtained when you work on the inside out. Releasing baggage that holds you captive. Once these things are dealt with you are able to stick to the goals you set and achieve the ultimate results. Now many are confused on what being healthy really means. Is it your size jeans, is it the size of your hips, bottom or chest. Not quite. being healthy is not based on your outer appearance alone. Although in most cases it is a clear indication…

Joanne Borgella, 32 Years Old, was diagnosed with Cancer in October 2013 and after recently battling with painful headaches was told the cancer had spread It is never an easy pill to swallow when you know of someone who is facing a horrible illness, and it is even harder when you find out that this person so full of life, beautiful, talented and extremely optimistic about the outcome of the illness passes away. I mean yes we all know that once you hear those words, “You have CANCER”, that there is a possibility if even a slight one that you may not live through it, but then there is still that small piece of you that hopes that you will. Many ask Why & How this could happen to someone so young and vibrant yet still be faced with such a horrible deadly illness. Well while i have many questions, I choose to remember the impact I had on her spirit if even for a moment while she lived. Last October I wrote about Joanne’s journey and battle with cancer, and at that time she had just released a video about her diagnosis, even though her outer appearance seemed to be in good spirits to the naked eye, her eyes said something different. She was afraid, but yet still hopeful and her sharing her journey with the world wasn’t just about sharing with her fans, no, it was about her having the courage to accept this journey that had been placed upon her, it was her way of speaking hope into herself even more than it was about the fans, cause the truth is, Continue reading Remembering Joanne Borgella ( Season 7 American Idol Contestant and Wilhelmina Model Diagnosed with Cancer …Passes Away
Hello Everyone! I hope each and everyone is maintaining their goals on their #JourneyToBetter Phase 3 challenge, and if you are just starting out I hope you have put together your vision boards w/ action plans and have your accountability partners in place to help you along the way!
By now you all know that I too have been on my own journey to better phase 3 challenge and much like phase 1 for me, this includes not only mental, emotional & spiritual detox and cleansing but also physical as well. So far I have gotten extremely close to my Goal weight, but of course we all know how we when reach one milestone it encourages you to keep going. I am no different I have lost 50 pounds since beginning my journey however I am now toning and doing other core exercises to reach my overall goals. But even with that being said I absolutely LOVE the results. Not only in a physical sense but because for every pound lost in physical weight was 2-3 pounds of weight released, emotionally, mental & spiritually. So I am really excited and proud of myself for making the decision to be healthy overall for me. Now let me say this, IT was NOT overnight, NOR was it easy breezy, this took work as anything long-lasting does. So if you are currently battling with your transition and you are not sure if it is actually worth it, TRUST me it is! You are not in this alone, you have thousands of supporters and so many need you reach your goals , so you can be an example to others that anything is possible. Besides you need to prove to yourself that everything is possible.

ALL of the things surface level wise would be heard at any given moment, on any given picture, social media site, or random conversation, however non of those things describe who she really is, or was since we are speaking in current sense. We all have been guilty of it, spotting the negative, or vain things out first before acknowledging if they meet the current approval of social standards. Contrary we think this is all there is, or we know its not but would rather it be because those are the only things that seem to matter. I wonder how many moments passed where she felt inadequate, broken, sad, unworthy or just plan NOT ENOUGH. I wonder how many nights she cried herself to sleep wishing someone just understood or got it?
