Greetings, Good Monday Morning! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend, and that you're off to an amazing start! I certainly did, and I'm fired up to grind it out for more opportunities to come. Today, I have a brief message about your greatness. God is so good! I originally began writing this blog post on November 17, 2019, but I "put it down" because, I didn't feel it was ready for me to post. When I initially began writing it, I felt it was missing the depth of impact f
Greetings and Good Sunday Morning! Saturday, October 26, 2019 was my birthday! Whoohoo! Yesterday, I turned 39 everybody! Ok, so, I didn't really have any plans, but I did complete a client's makeup and spent time with my husband and son. I'm not even complaining because, it turned out to be an excellent day! I rocked my NCA&TSU gear because, it was GHOE!💙💛💙💛I was so happy! As I reflected over my 39 years of life, I realize that I'm getting ready to enter a new phase of m
Greetings and Good Morning Good People! Happy Monday! I hope all is well. I hope that you've had a fabulous weekend and now you're off to amazing start! I had a "blah" weekend. I spent it at home just relaxing and chill'n because, it was raining for much of it. All I can say is, I'm caught up on practically every reality tv show outside of VH1 reality smut tv shows, LOL! By the way, sidebar, if you've never watched "Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry", oh my goodness it's such
Greetings and Good Monday Morning! This morning, I will not take too much of your time. I wanted to share with you my experience from this weekend and a comment that "hit home" for me. On Sunday, March 24, 2019, I attended a fabulous "Drag Makeup Masterclass" at The Academy of Makeup in Cockeysville, MD, where I was able to witness a live demonstration of how to create the makeup application that is used by female impersonators; as taught by Celebrity Makeup Artist, Frederick
Greetings and Good Monday Morning! I hope that you're off to a great start! Feeling motivated and inspired to take on the day. This morning, I won't take up too much of your time, but I wanted to "chit chat" about a concept that I think, as individuals overlook often in our lives. Now, you may be wondering to yourself, "What the heck is she talking about? We discuss everything?", and it's true we discuss a lot of things but we don't discuss this enough. Right now, you're also
Greetings and Good Monday Morning All!😃☀️ I hope that all is well and that you all had a fantastic weekend! This weekend was pretty low-key for me. I stayed in. It was a pretty yucky weekend here in Maryland, and it was felt much better to stay in the house; relax, straighten up and clean my home. So that's what I did. I also watched a lot of PBS Documentaries. One in particular that I would like to encourage you to watch is, The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross with
Greetings and Happy #FierceFriday! I hope all is well today! Well, I wanted to drop in on this #ReflectiveFriday and give a quick word of encouragement. There is so much discord and turmoil in the world, and it is incredibly difficult to stay motivated. Positivity is an energy and when you're drained of that which keeps you operating at a high level, its easy to fall trap to the negativity that surrounds you. So, I wanted to let you know that it is ok. If you're struggling to
Greetings and Good Morning!☀️😃 Happy Monday! I wanted to come to you this morning about getting a "M.A.I." frame of mind. When my Boston family (Line Dance Family), specifically, my instructor, "Coach Murry" began calling me, "Mai" three years ago, I never would've thought that it would morph into something bigger. I build a brand within around this name because, there's so much more in this name! Having a "M.A.I." mentality means, being able to "Motivate.Aspire.Inspire." gr
Greetings and Good Morning!☀️😃 Happy Monday!😃 I hope that you've had a wonderful weekend. The weather is finally changing, the fall foliage is creating a beautiful display of the season, and the coolness of autumn fills the atmosphere. The next two weeks is going to be packed with excitement! First, Halloween🎃👻 is this week, and I hope that you get more treats than tricks.😉 Have fun with the festivities! In addition to Halloween, we are also preparing for an important mi
☀️Greetings and Good Morning! Happy Monday all!😃 I hope that you've had a wonderful weekend. I actually had a pretty quiet and relaxing weekend...the perfect environment to sit and think. So, to kick things off, I've been mulling over the thought of being "imaginative". By definition, it means having creativity or showing inventiveness. So, I hope that you'll indulge the idea for a few minutes because, I think that there's an underlying message for us all. So without further
Greetings, Happy Morning and Good Morning! For "Mai Monday Motivation", I’m deeply humbled this morning by the thought of “Perseverance”. In the course of a week in a half, I've witnessed the loss of a loved one, and two “giants” in our American society. All three, when I think of their journeys over the past year, although very different in what they were facing, all of them put forth the same body of “spiritual armor” to persevere through the difficult road that was ahead o
Greetings and Good Morning! Today, for "Mai Monday Motivation", I'm going to discuss the need of maintaining your balance in life. This life is pretty tough to navigate, and it can be a real "balancing act". Having your balance ensures clarity, insight, and focus. We all have our trials and tribulations, but how we handle them is most important. Someone, right now, is a decision away from losing it all, and the stress is taking a significant toll on their ability to "balance"
Greetings and Good Morning!☀️ It’s a glorious Monday morning to be alive and well! This morning, I wanted to discuss the importance of determination. Anyone that has a goal and/or objective in mind, should be purposeful in their pursuit to one day accomplish them. An individual that is focused on the “end goal”, and cannot be easily deterred or distracted, is someone that embodies “determination”! This person is keenly aware of what it means to have determination. It's "your
Greetings and Good Morning to you! Happy Monday! I hope that you’re off to an amazing start this Monday morning. Today, I wanted to focus on what it means to follow your passion. I think, the phrase, "follow your passion", is something that sounds great, but what about what happens when you do, "follow your passion". No one really talks about the “joys and pains of following your passion”. Since I’m in this stage of my life, “following my passion”, I thought I’d talk about th
Hey there! Are you living your best life?
Recently, I’ve been seeing and hearing the phrase, “live your best life”, and you know, I’ve even used it to describe something fun I’m doing at the time.
I believe, living your best life is more than a “catchphrase", and so I've decided to look into how this phrase is resonating in the lives of the people that are “living their best life”, and what I found is astounding!
For instance, over the years, I’ve been living only a fra
This morning I’m reminded not to “lose my spark”! I wanted to talk about “self-doubt” when starting a new journey or endeavor, and how self-doubt is the enemy of faith. When self-doubt shows up, it can make a positive situation stressful and negative. So, I want to talk with you, about how it nearly caused me to “lose my spark” recently when it “showed up uninvited” in my life, and how I’ve chosen to deal with it.
This past week for me and my family was hands down spectacul
A little bit of rest and relaxation is just what the doctor ordered. There's so much that we have to deal with on a daily basis, as individuals, with family, work, and outside commitments it's easy to "burn out". I think that it's important to work hard and meet your daily obligations, but I also believe in taking care of oneself. Many people forget to put themselves first, and I'll admit to being one of those people. However, as I get older I'm realizing that we only have o
