Been feeling insecure about my body lately (surprise I haven’t been eating healthy or working out as much as I used to) 😂🙈. However I realize this and realize it’s okay to feel that way and bring awareness to it. Sometimes I feel like a supermodel and other times I feel like I should delete this stupid Instagram. Regardless I’ve taught myself about 5 years ago when I was younger that it’s ok. That I won’t look like this forever (whatever I look like ATM). That’s why I have bought so many clothes that were a size smaller from what I currently was throughout the years with a positive outlook that I would fit it eventually. I did that with my nursing school pinning dress 2 years ago. I did that with my bridesmaid dress this year. I do it because I actually believe I have enough discipline to stick to it and grit to control my inner voices telling me “no”. So don’t worry friend about feeling a certain way about yourself. Believe you can and you are halfway there. .

Well little man...we are at #38weeks and momma is beyond ready for you to be here. I think it's safe to say that you are officially out of room and momma feeling super large. Dr. said any day now so whenever you are ready... #almostthere#tattedmomma#bigbelly#beyondready
I’m so ready for our yard to look like this again and the trees to be full of green, shady leaves!! I try not to complain about the weather, and I’m not really complaining, I’m just dreaming of warm Spring days when I can sit on my porch sippin sweet tea, watch my kids ride their bikes, listen to the birds chirp, the 🐐 “maa”s, cows bellowing, and bees buzzing!! This was the first picture I ever snapped of this old house! The first “drive-by” viewing of it where I fell in love site unseen inside!!! It was the start of something beautiful....our story here, and while it’s been a somewhat toilsome adventure thus far, we’re just getting started and I know God is writing or story here...not us! So, though the weather and journey may be somewhat gloomy, we look to what lies ahead....HOPE! A NEW life....SPRING and all of the newness that it brings! #beyondready#bestillandknow#hopeinchrist#hopeandafuture#heiswritingourstory#bringonspring#springtimeonthefarm#farmhouse

✨I am beyond ready for this next month to pass so I can get to @reggaeriseup_florida !!🎶 It's hard to pick one specific artist when they're all AMAZING.
Hurry up and wait. We got moved to a step down room and thought we would get moved to inpatient rehab but that didn’t happen. Paperwork. Bureaucracy. We are on the list to be moved in the morning. Until then, we are packed and ready. #beyondready#heartstrong#cy365
I present @eltonandersonjr + @taibeau , the co-hosts of #LensofCulture , a new #travel show created for #Millennial#WomenofColor + men who love culture, celebrate the diaspora, fashion, food, and life. Executive Produced by women founded and led @powerhouseproductionstv Lens of Culture will air on @mycleotv in August 2019.
Yesterday we presented the CleoTv line up at #TCA2019 and it was nothing short of magic! I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to be part of a team and vision that believes in the spirit, the power, and the young women of color. And I’m so excited to do so with, @eltonandersonjr.
Elton, my friend and brother, you deserve this! From the moment we met 6 years ago after being introduced by @sharonda_l , I felt your positive energy, your warmth, a spirit of kindness and genuine love. Your work as a photographer embodies that same spirit.
So while you continue to remind me that you are excited to learn hosting from me, know that I too will be learning from you, and I’m grateful for that. @donyellkennedymccullough + @uptownali knew exactly what they were doing by putting us together, no audition, no chem test, just a hunch! Thank you both! —
And might I add, Lens of Culture was originally slated to be a 10-min mini-show is now a full on 30-min show where Elton and I will travel domestically and internationally to explore, learn, and connect with people, places and things that will inspire travel and exploration among millennials of color. Talk about blessings and God’s plan?
As world travelers, we’re excited to have you journey with us, the new plutonic couple of travel! Pack your bags, grab your passports, be inspired and join us this August 2019 on #CleoTV .
My eldest goddaughter @kaylahaney turned 20 yesterday. One of my earliest mentees @danny4now whom I’ve known since she was 15 got engaged yesterday. Another goddaughter @_madicy_ , soon to be 20 and I chatted this am about life and the pursuit of happiness as a college sophomore. It got me to thinking...
What 3 things would I share with my 20 year old self?
1. Work to discover your purpose not to pay bills. When you discover your purpose, you’ll find meaning in the work you do even when you can’t pay bills.
2. Invest. Save. Then invest some more. And not in a pair of Gucci shoes or relationships that are one sided.
3. Surround yourself with people that challenge you to grow. And be willing to challenge yourself to do the work, everyday.
And the BONUS: you are fully equipped! You are #BeyondReady to face every fear, every obstacle, to overcome every hurdle. Stay the course. Don’t quit. Keep going! It gets better! And you have what it takes.
How many of you have felt like an outsider?
Until you decided you belonged. Until you created your own warm embrace. And then passed it forward.
Until 1 person helped you believe you could! And WOULD.
Until you knew that you were fully equipped and #beyondready .
Until you chose to manifest and create your own destiny.
Until you found support and partnership on your journey?
Been there. Know it. Let me support you.
Be the master of your own universe. In life. In business. In your relationships. In growth. You deserve it.

‼️EXCITING NEWS BELOW‼️
-feel free to scroll to the very end if you’re looking for a spoiler lol-
I couldn’t be any more excited to FINALLY announce that in the very near future I will be making my “exit” (see what I did there🙃) from St. Louis, MO, and taking a gigantic step towards fulfilling the calling (and quite frankly, my dream and desire) that God has so strongly placed on my life.
I have been granted a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (with unending and inexpressible gratitude on my part) to be a part of a phenomenal team of Kingdom workers as they lay the foundations to launch an incredible church in a not-so-small city. Not only that, but I’ll get to be hands on and on site from the very get go (which absolutely blows my mind - a huge thank you to God). I know this post doesn’t contain a whole lot of detail, but I will be providing more information shortly about my upcoming journey and how YOU can have a direct impact on the work that is going to be done. That being said, if you’ve gotten this far, keep me in mind when considering who and what you will be providing support (prayerfully and financially) for this year. ☺️ I CANNOT WAIT to share my full burden with each of you and am so excited to be able to include y’all on this journey! Keep me in your prayers moving forward - they are not taken for granted. Stay tuned for more details!
New York City, get ready - we’re coming for you. @tiphaniimeadors@justinmeadors #northamericanmissions#thisisMYmissionfield#NYCorbust#Godsendeavor#letsgo#beyondready 📷: @kelseymckelvie@for_the_love_of_memories
Feeling as shiny as I look in my @thebrandlabel sequin shirt after hosting a powerful conversation with the dynamic @massy.arias on @blogher#Health ’s MainStage this am.
Massy dropped so many gems and shared her personal story of how she turned her challenges into victories and is working to revolutionize the fitness and healthy soft drink industries. She’s #BeyondReady to change the game.
A few of her key points that had the #blogherhealth19 attendees captivated the way she captivates her 3+ Million followers daily.
1. Operate with integrity in everything you do, especially in business.
2. Share your truth. Your social media posts shouldn’t be contrived, but what is real and authentic for and to you. That is how you build your following.
3. Passion doesn’t pay the bills! (I’ve said this 1000 times) You have to be thoughtful about business and become an expert by being trained.
4. Understand that negotiating means being prepared to give and take.
Thank you @blogher for having me for back for 3 years in a row. Massy, honored to meet you!
