Confidence

Ahh so here goes...

My first ever blog...

So this year I wanted to challenge myself and read a few books. Mainly autobiographies, written by Successful Black Women because hey, who else am I going to relate to. I read Gabrielle Union's We're going to need more wine, Taraji P Henson's Around the way girl, Tiffany Haddish's The Last Black Unicorn, Patricia Bright Heart and Hustle and finally Michelle Obama Becoming (five books LOL its's quite an achievement for me). All books i can honestly say I would read again. They all had their own struggles, trials and tribulations but guess their journeys taught them? Confidence. Honestly, those that know me may consider me as confident especially with my vibrant personality and I have my amazing Mother, Nan's, Aunties and Cousins, aka The Village, to thank for that.

Each of those women showed me what hard work and determination can help you to achieve anything you set your mind to. Ive never been the smartest but i've always tried to give 100% in everything I do. Ok yes I have bad days. Days where honestly I just want to chill and just be a bum but where my journey wants to take me i just won't, not can't, allow it. So i throw on my big girl panties and get on with it. 

Definition: 
-the feeling or belief that one can have faith in or rely on someone or something.
-the state of feeling certain about the truth of something.
-a feeling of self-assurance arising from an appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.

As women we are consistently plagued with the assumption of confidence being perceived as cockiness. Why cant we be confident in our abilities and qualities without being questioned or looked down upon. Naturally as women we are reliable and certain about most things and are inquisitive to find our own way if we are not. 
Even with proven accolades as examples for our relevance, this is still not enough for some. But today it ends! We will celebrate and be confidently Bossy, Bold and Aggressive and that is in the positive sense of the word, to make a stand and our mark on the world. So being apologetic for who we are should never be an option. So if you have to be “stubborn” or “strong willed” as THEY politely word it, should no longer be a hurdle to where WE want to get to next. So with this motivation, do not hesitate to be that bright CONFIDENT woman u are! 

Be you xxx

Woman to Woman with... Tita!!!

missltj_ Bonjour amies sœurs You may be wondering ‘why the french hun’, well its because my sis speaks french and its probably the only words I know from GCSE french and she hasn’t taught me much lol.  Now I am soooooo freaking excited about this. My bestie has come through for an exclusive on my blog. Eeeek! You will love reading what she has to say because she is wise beyond her years. As a sister, I respect the way she politely checks me when I attempt to come to her with my unreasonable foolishness (I say this begrudgingly *CoversFace*). Out of all of my interviewee recordings Tita's was the longest, she talkkkkkkks this will be a long read kids lol.  Lets get into it... So Tita tell us about you...

I was raised by a single mom, a very loving hard working single mom and I am her only child. I also have

Fearless

The Mighty Women of Wakanda /ˈfɪəlɪs/ Adjective;  Showing a lack of fear. You may be wondering why I’ve chosen this picture so let me explain. These women scream fearless to me. They stood and faught for their King and didn’t really know the extent of the battle they were facing but did it anyway for the greater good. Kind of like me this week minus the physical aspect.  This is one word I truly battle with.  Growing up I was taught to fear nothing but God and then came a spider in the bath, sharks, swimming in deep water where I cant see my feet. These are my three of my biggest fears and public speaking being my fourth. So what did I have to face on Tuesday? PUBLIC SPEAKING!!!!  My public speaking fear stems from a summer club we used to attend as kids at my nan’s church. I was maybe 7/8 years old. We all had to stand and read a passage from what I think was the bible. I cant really remember. I just remember practicing loads and then when I g

Three Little Words...

Flowers bloom when they have everything they need... Don’t Force It! Three very important words. More important than the infamous ILY words. Ha! Yeah you thought this was those words didnt you. Nah. Not this blog ;) So why a blog about these words. Ive realised that good things truly come to those who wait. I’ve realised that as time goes by i’m not as patient as I use to be. Sometimes its good and at others its like sh!t Chess your impatience is going to get you into shit. Like for example; For the drivers out there, have you ever driven fast or cut someone up for no reason and then there you both are at the same traffic lights together. Lol. It’s just unnecessary you’ve not gained anything for that dumb decision. Yh this is the dumbness I do. Sometimes! Like chill.  In 2020 I need to have faith in Gods timing. Wow. Thinking about it actually makes me cringe. Sorry this is my anxiety kicking in. Why have I lost that patience. Oh wait I know. The fact that 30 is cree
