Yesterday as I was out & about I enjoyed the simplest little pleasure of people watching.
The function I was at had more than 40,000 people attending.
As I watched and relished in my favorite thing to do I couldn’t help but think to myself….Why don’t we choose to see the beauty in everyone?
I would pick out a person and mentally think of something unique or dazzling about them. I didn’t just do this with women but men too.
A photographer with the largest lens I’d ever seen on her Canon. She had weathered skin with a few lines. It looked like she hadn’t combed her hair in days but I couldn’t help but see the exquisiteness of her face. The stories she must have with each line. The beauty in her gleaming green eyes.
The charming older gent with his WWII Veteran Cap on. As he walked with his cane and the tenderness in his smile looking down at his granddaughter with her fairy costume on. As she jumped into a mud puddle in shear delight, he chuckled. He highfived her as she looked up at him with her wide eyes. He was beautiful to me for the way he looked at her.
We should never see ugly on anyone’s face. Of course there are many ugly things that people do or say. But, a face, a face is not ugly at all to me.
Judging a face before knowing someone’s character, personalities, their story is cruel. Because in a sense that makes you ugly….just sayin’
The stories are the mystery behind the eyes. When you look at someone, embrace what they might have to tell.
I just finished reading this sassy little book and absolutely loved it! Ladies, if you’re looking to be inspired, encouraged, and humored this will satisfy those cravings.

Enjoy Ladies – You’re Welcome!
I’m pretty sure everyone is unfavorable of Monday’s. You’ve known all along it was coming and here it is….Monday Eve prep.
When I say prep, I mean, I have to start with my head and pump myself up for the shenanigans that are forthcoming tomorrow. I think it’s ironic that tonight is the premier for the new season of The Walking Dead. No doubt tomorrow morning I’ll walk into the office and I’ll see “walkers” among me.
The “Walkers” that I speak of are the kind that are inattentive, lethargic and procrastinating. Sure, we’re all like this from time to time. The struggle is real on a Monday morning isn’t it?
Well, I believe if we have the mindset that we’re thankful for another day and these jobs that we’re going to, it will set the tone for all of us.
Whether we’re dreading going into work or not, if we start with our heads I think it will make a difference in the way we perceive our Monday.
Remember you are powerful in your thoughts. You control your happiness and your attitude. Honestly, I think it takes more energy to be negative than it does to be positive.
Be enthusiastic about a fresh start to the work week. Reinvent yourself possibly? Switch things up a bit. Instead of wearing the same lip gloss how about change it up and put on a bold shade? Fellas, try the blonde roast at Starbucks instead of the usual White Chocolate Mocha. Wear a different tie that has been hidden in the back of the closet for a special occasion. Treat yo self to something special in the morning to start the day off with a little offering to yourself. Or better yet, pay for the car behind you in the drive thru.
Random acts of kindness benefit you and the benefactor. It can change your entire day.
Make your Monday constructive and purposeful. Who wants a Mundane Monday anyways? Make it count.
All of us have been in a relationship and have taken a loss. Whether it’s you letting someone go or you being let go.
It took me cutting the cord to a past relationship to find myself. Being consumed with fixing someone or trying to persuade them into loving us is exhausting.
Although we might love them and they’re in love with us….it just might not be enough.
If the person you’re in the relationship with doesn’t build you up or encourage you to grow then you’re not with the right person.
I assure you that you deserve more. We’re all worthy of our soulmates and deserve unconditional love.
A break up is a learning experience. Always choose YOU. Accept your flaws, glitches, quirks and fall deeply in love with yourself.
The second you believe in yourself and gain your swag the right person will find you.
You’re awesome so start fucking believing it already!
How about we pump ourselves up for Monday shall we?
The week is about to begin and I don’t know about you Loves but something inside of me dreads Monday’s.
I’ve relaxed and had so much fun this weekend. I don’t ever want it to end. But, as we all know…..it’s about the dolla bills ya’ll.
What if we all wake up tomorrow and instantly hit the ground running with the idea we don’t need validation from anyone. We’re wearing our favorite shade of armor of course that’s our lipstick and everybody needs to get out of our way because we’re gonna kill it.
Doesn’t that sound magnificent? Who’s with me? Let us be proud bad ass women tomorrow!
Let us remember that we’re invincible and we’ll make this Monday our Bitch!
Have a great day tomorrow! XOXO
