Do what you can until you can do what you want

"Do what you can until you can do what you want" ~ Oprah Winfrey

Sitting around and waiting for opportunities to just stumble across you, will get you nowhere fast! Every day you need to get up and work towards your goals and dreams. Your path to those goals and dreams isn't always ideal or what you necessarily want to be doing, but that's the path to success. People don't just wake up one day with successful careers and riches without hard work and perseverance. There is a story of failures, trials, and tribulations leading up to everyone's successes. That's why we call them success stories!

What's yours?

Dream Big

"Dream big, work hard, stay focused, and surround yourself with good people"

This is how you do it! This is the formula to live the life you were always meant to live. Not to place blame on others as to why you're not there yet. It's not their responsibility to get you there, it's yours and yours only! No matter what life throws at you, you have to keep standing tall and remain focused on your goals and dreams! Never stop fighting..., ever!! And never let anyone tell you your dreams are too big! So get up, work hard, make your dreams happen and be happy!

"If you do a little research is going to become evident to you that anyone that ever accomplished anything, did not know how they were going to do it. They only knew they were going to do it." The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

Random Thoughts 3-1-2018

So next month is my birthday and It's the big 40!! As I try and prepare myself for this milestone I have been doing research on how to naturally care for my mind, body and health as a "mature" woman...lol..! One of the subjects that pops up a lot is "how to dress your age" and "how to dress trendy at 40"... Blah, blah, blah... Well, I have read these articles and looked at the pictures of examples and my opinion is fuck that!!! 

I am a grown ass woman who will wear whatever I am comfortable in and the age fashion police can kiss my ass!! 💋 I will wear my hoops, I will wear my bodycon mini skirts ( At 4'11.75" they are just regular skirts on me...), I will wear my tight skinny legged jeans, I will even bust out my bootcuts If I'm in the mood that day! I will continue to wear my thigh high's and heels that I've had since I was in my 20's, I will wear my hair in any style I feel like (yes I will still rock the pigtails!) and I will do my make-up however choose! 

I feel we as women have earned our right to wear whatever the hell we want to without people telling us what is appropriate for our "age"... I do feel there are a few rules that ALL women should follow to make any style look good..ie "Just because it zips doesn't mean it fits", wearing clothing that actually fits you properly looks 1000% better then sqeezing yourself into a size or two smaller. The goal is to look cute/sexy (depending on your goal) looking like the sausage casing broke and you're squeezing out all over the place is NOT cute or sexy.... Or if you're in the mood to "flaunt" your body, pick one. I personally think it looks classier when you only showcase one part of the body at a time like your shoulders OR your cleavage OR your midriff...etc. I also believe subtle is key to keeping it classy. 

Of course these are just my opinions and a few rules I like to follow. At the end of the day if you are over the age of 18 and fully incharge of how you dress your body you do you! Age is just a number representing how long we've been alive on this earth in this lifetime, it does not represent how old we are in our minds! I have a young mind (my body doesn't always feel young though...lol). My mind stopped aging at about 16 when I got pregnant with my son. Although I've continued to mature and grow as a person I still FEEL like I'm 16!! So, some mornings it's a big shock to the system when I look in the mirror and don't see that 16 year old me staring back at me...lmao😂 Okay, I think I'm done rambling...lol!😂 Hope everyone of you have an amazing day, Love and Light💖

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Let me introduce myself

My name is Mìchele (Me-Shell), although I've gone my whole life answering to "Michelle" because no one has ever been able to remember how to pronounce my name correctly...lol! I was born in Maryland in 1978. North East Maryland was my home till Christmas of 1989 when my family and I arrived here in Florida. Now, this is my home and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love living in this beautiful state, yes it can get a bit hot at times but it’s better than dealing with the frigid cold and snow. I remember it clearly and I don't miss it!

Moving to Florida is one of the best things that has ever happened in my life. I met many lifelong friends here and also met my future husband and father of my two wonderful children. Although we met and became friends at ages 11 and 12 in sixth grade, we didn't move our friendship to the next level and start dating till ages 15 and 16 in high school in 1994. The beginning of our relationship was quite the whirlwind and things happened a little fast... Our first child was born in 1995 when we were 17 and our second child in 1999 when we were 20 and 21. We married in 2000 on our 6 year dating anniversary and are still happily married today.

So who else am I? I'm a woman on a mission to make my dreams a reality, I may get sidetracked from time to time but I always find my way back. I’m a singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, painter, photographer, writer, content creator, micro influencer, the hostess with the mostest for Krazy Deal Daze and DIYer. I love expressing myself in as many creative ways as possible. I love to have projects and things to do at all times, as long as my mind is active I’m happy.

I have many hobbies which include but are not limited to; photography, videography, graphic design, art of all mediums, and singing. My first EP Album "Dreams" was released at midnight on 8/13/2011. This was my first self-produced album. One day I hope to release another one. I am still growing as an artist and I am loving every minute of it.

This is my personal blog journey, where I can express myself in whichever way suits me at that moment. Whether it be one of my many hobbies, business, health, fitness, beauty, fashion...etc!

I invite you to join me in my journey
