My daily goal is to overcome self-doubt and encourage others to do the same. I have spent time comparing myself to others. I have asked ‘When will it be my opportunity? I would be anxious and feel like “everyone’s” surpassing me and “everyone’s” doing better than me. Those thoughts aren’t true.
What is true is everyone has their own journey, and my journey is mine and mine alone. I know that what’s meant for me won’t pass me by, because I keep trying, I refuse to give up on my goals, dreams, and purpose.
I say this to encourage you to stop comparing yourself to others, celebrate their achievements and use that as motivation to go after your goals, dreams, and purpose.

Today’s workout (Life Addicts Studio) was proof that
I CAN DO Challenging things.
One year ago I decided I didn’t want to feel terrible anymore. Including fatigued, defeatist mindset, depressed, the list goes on.
I realized that although I have not been completely successful in this task. I can finally say I feel more like myself. It’s not easy to let go with the things you think you need to hold on to including people, old clothing, unread books, and even emotions.
I have not done a good job of tracking my progress. I do keep a journal yet when it comes to things like weight loss or emotional growth I need to do better at qualifying the results.
I making this post as a reminder to myself. That tracking the progress helps show how far I have come.

I’m very honored to be awarded as a Grand Rapids Business Journal, 40 Under 40 Business Leader of West Michigan! Class of 2020. After reading the email, I was in a bit of disbelief. Previous leaders selected have accomplished so much, how could I compare. I haven’t done enough. I have stopped and started more time than I can count. I had to remember it’s not about comparing who I am or what I haven’t done is about intentionally living my purpose: To inspire & encourage individuals to live authenticity.
I am so excited to celebrate virtually with all the honorees! We all know 2020 has been a terrible year, from the pandemic, so much devastation, to losing some of our favorite celebrities and activists. Personally, the last four months have been especially difficult for me mentally and emotionally. Haven’t experience depression that bad since I was a teenager. Praise God for His love, mercy, for therapy, and an amazing support system.
Will you please join me and watch our 40-second stories and with a special Keynote speaker Daniel Williams, EdD.
I want to use this moment to celebrate every person who has encouraged and loved on me. Shoutout to everyone who has booked a photo session with ACTPhotoMedia, attended a Naturally ACT event or read the blog, and to my #Wrapped peeps for being Wrapped By ACT, you are the true MVPs.
Courage is like working out to build muscle. The only way to overcome fear is to do it afraid. Stepping into the unknown is going beyond your comfort zone. This is how you will become braver than you could ever imagine. #JourneyTo37
There are some things that are between you and God. He’s calling you close, just you and Him. If you’ve tried everything and everyone, but nothing is working, remember that some things are only meant for God to handle.
Keep Moving Forward > This journey to 37 has been interesting there are so many things that I would like to change, yet I refuse to live in regret.
A true testament of faith is knowing that without trials, there is no trust in God.”Trust in him at all times, oh people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.” – Psalm 62:8It’s seems easier to trust God when things are going the way you want. Actively believing in Him good & bad (all times). He will be there through it all.
It’’s officially the countdown to my 37th birthday. Each year I share reflections of what I’ve learned. This year, I’ll start with a declaration & quote from Shannon Cohen. I declared this is “Shoot MY Shot” season.
Lesson 36 ‘Talk is NOT cheap. “Talk” is how visionaries pre-game too! Your dreams need to hear you pre-game today.” #ToughSkinSoftHeart
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. ~ Psalm 94:19
