Greetings all !! I feel its time to regroup and start brainstorming some new ideas and projects for the Artiste Monique Brand. Starting to make calls, send emails and contact resources. I feel some great changes coming. Keep you posted !!!
Over the past few months I've learned ALOT about myself and life , maybe because I've experienced hardships, going through the go through, moments of peace and pain, life's roller coaster has me on and I've yet to be smooth sailing but I'm holding on for the journey. I never like to give off the impression like life is GRAND .... PLEASE !!!! Life is like a huge pot of gumbo and mine is filled with a little bit and sometimes a whole lot of everything. But in the midst of it all I'm learning to:
1. Count it all joy
(Regardless of what it looks like, even in your tears, even when you feel lost & confused, He's still in control thank Him for your strength thank Him for the journey thank Him for the victory !)
2. Never judge another persons life, decisions, or situation
(You don't know their story, mental or emotional state, you never know what you would do when you're placed in something similar or exactly the same. We think we know but you never truly know)
3. Everyone can't be a BOSS
(Some were born to be workers and others were born to create jobs to work. Understand who you are and respect both positions can't have one without the other)
4. Showboating in my world is POINTLESS
( I'm not the kind of person to broadcast my every move, share a great deal of personal life publicly, nor announce what I'm doing, attempting to do or starting to do. I'm growing more into a woman of action increasingly each day. Not to frown on those that enjoy putting their personal and business life on public display constantly to each it's own.)
5. You CAN do it, but it may take some time
( We've heard it time and time again " If you can believe it, you can achieve it" but how many of us honestly felt any truth to this statement. How many of us put passion and drive behind this statement. Many years only a small percentage of passion, drive and belief was placed behind that statement in my life. Fast forward a few years, let's just say times have changed and the percentage is growing higher for me.
6. Don't aspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference
(This statement helps keep me in check. Understanding that my natural gifts, life situations and abilities have put me in a place to be fruitful and make a difference at the same time. As I build my brands and empire the goals are to create a legacy for my family to carry on, to be of service to my community and nations abroad and to leave a positive mark on the world.)
JUST WANTED TO SHARE .................
LOS ANGELES—A moderate earthquake gave a late-night jolt to the
area, but no damages or injuries were reported. Seismologist Nick Sheckel
from the California Institute of Technology says the quake hit at 11:23 p.m. Tuesday and was centered two miles east of Yorba Linda in northern
Orange County, which is about 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles.The quick
shock of the quake was widely felt throughout the region.
report says a 2.7-magnitude aftershock followed less than a minute
later. Police and fire officials in Orange and Los Angeles counties say they have
received no reports of damage or injuries. California is my second home so when I heard about
an earhquake I immediately checked to see the level it was classified.
To my fambams back west holla at me.
Chow for now
Alright this is the 1st of many blog entries I will be doing. There will be times I'll be sharing my thoughts about current events, local and worldwide headlines, celeb news, answering questions, and even providing you all with hair/beauty/fashion resources I've discovered. I'm sure as the ideas flow we'll all enjoy reading, posting, and commenting on my entries.
Chow for now ...
