you take yourself wherever you go…

Reflection ~long hair…short hair…dreadlocks…perms….African garb…regular garb…Chi-Town…Westside…east coast…west coast…down south…midwest…up north….Australia…Africa…if it’s one thing that rings true it’s what my Mama said…Joanna Grace…yes Ma…her dimples smiled…just remember this…you take yourself wherever you go.

Observation ~what would I do without all of the people who showed me just how important it is to do you. :~)

confidence. courage. conviction

When you take a stand and agree to commit to the master plan, you’ll find the confidence, courage, and conviction you need, deep within, to keep moving forward. Put GOD first. Sit a while and listen to your still quiet voice. That’s your compass, your blueprint, the one created especially for you. Celebrate your dna…your uniqueness. Love the shade you’re in. Be and stay focused. Have the faith of a mustard seed. Sow seeds of love, hope, and gratitude. Be generous. Practice reciprocity. Thank The Creator for every single blessing, understanding that YOU matter. Your story matters. ~Joanna
