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”
I know we all have the secret obsessions material wise, I mean we all love being able to purchase certain things or go certain places, but what many of us fail to understand is why at times it may feel as if something is still missing. How can you have the biggest house, the greatest friends, best opportunities , nicest cars, top education, the best bodies, etc and still not be happy. I mean how in the world can you still have problems in any area when you have all of the above? This is the illusion society has allowed to be created with the help of magazines, television, red carpets and much more, you know the picture perfect, don’t show your truth curtain. However what is never truly discussed is how you can have everything money can buy and still not be happy or satisfied. Truth is you can purchase everything that will help create a pseud , but eventually what is under the surface surfaces. People & their opinions, judgement , & perceptions of how life should be for you will eventually take a toll and you will lose yourself. Why?

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?

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 may be around them, you can’t get enough. Well this is the reason you cant become who you are destined to become, because you refuse to release the ties that bind you to you a comfortable place. You would rather be around and within familiarity oppose to adapting to the unfamiliar because it seems more relatable. Imagine how much better you would feel if you actually achieved the things you say you want to do. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well let me give you some tips that helped me, I wont act as if it was easy because it was not, but it was necessary and worth it!
- Change your perception of who you think you are– You have to get rid of the programmed thoughts on what you think you know about yourself, because until you do, you will only be able to go as far as your mind allows.

Hello Everyone!! So many of you have been following me for some time now, and you have read my post about health and fitness and my transition from a 203 pound beauty to a 169 pound beauty. That is a 34 pound weight difference. However It is much more than just watching what you eat and becoming fit by working out etc. While yes that has ALOT to do with it. There are other factors. Overall health and fitness requires complete detox, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. The change people see in me is more than weight loss, its my overall attitude about life, the release of past burdens, issues, unhealthy relationships, old friendships that didn’t grow or push me to my better version of myself. I had to remove all of those things! I began meditating, reading alot more, writing more, and practicing an overall gratitude filled healthy life. So yesterday i began a 30 day challenge! One that took people on the journey of becoming an overall better version of themselves.
What will You learn in these 30 days? and how is it any different that my previous posts regarding health and fitness?
Well I will be implementing the steps ive taken in addition to Continue reading “30 DAY JOURNEY TO A HEALTHIER YOU!”
Work Harder. Go faster. Be MORE successful. Get Married. Have children. Aim for wealth. Travel More. Forgive. Let Go. Follow Trends. Start a Business. Buy a House. Do this DO that. Blah Blah Blah. Those are some of the things we hear on a daily. I mean let’s be honest. It is indeed Motivating to see people living their lives, chasing their dreams just trying to be GREAT. It is also even better when it’s YOU who is chasing them as well. However there comes a time when you have to ask yourself are you doing all of that because it’s who you really want to be, or better yet who you are really supposed to be, or are you just doing all those things because that’s what is expected by the people around you, society’s standards, Continue reading “Why I Am Determined To Live EVERYDAY Like It Will Be My Last………..”
Vh1 has managed to capture the very inspiring, emotional, groundbreaking story of Grammy award winning Girl Group of the 90′s and early 2000′s TLC. Tboz, Chilli and Lefteye were more than a group of girls with talent. They were innovative, bold and very aware! They used their music as a platform for girl/women empowerment, brought awareness to safe sex, independence and incredible style! There has been and will never be another! But with great success comes, tragedy, disagreements, financial woes, illness and more. This story is indeed a remarkable one and its sure to inspire as well as bring a greater appreciation to what they stood for! The casting i must say regardless of the controversy and negative views of who was cast, i believe they did an amazing job with the help of Chilli and Tboz (RIP Lefteye) with capturing not only the mannerisms of each artist but the look as well! KeKe Palmer as Chilli, Niatia “Lil Mama”Kirkland as Left Eye and Drew Sidora as Tboz! I cant wait to tune in!! Will you be watching!?
