There is nothing worse than settling for less than you’re worth. When you settle, it means you think so little of yourself that you have refused what is best in order to have what’s comfortable.
I am so excited to announce that my book, Thank God It’s Monday — 52 Weekly Inspirational Messages To Blast Away Your Monday Blues has officially launched!
Everything that Life has taught me about saying yes to our purpose, gifts and passions is in this book and I feel equally honored, privileged and proud to share it with you. This book wakes you up; it reminds you of who you are — of your power. We are so much more than the 9 to 5; than the titles we’ve boxed ourselves into and the limits we’ve put on our capabilities.
I’m here to remind you of what you’ve forgotten.
Each TGIM message is designed to help you find your purpose, to show up for your dreams +gifts, and to help you blast away your Monday blues. Even if you don’t like to read, it’s just one message for the week; a bite-size Sunday night or Monday morning read.
Wake up, be inspired, be motivated, your real life awaits!
Grab a copy for yourself and anyone else who could use the dose of inspiration here!
Once you say YES to your purpose, there will come a time when it feels like everything is working against you. Everything that can possibly go wrong will go wrong and at that moment, you’ll want to quit. Do this instead.
I've been having a lot of conversations lately about the "impostor syndrome".

Is what you bring to the table enough? Will you be found out?
If you find yourself going from one life situation to another and everything stinks, it’s time to ask yourself how you’re contributing to those situations.
There's a look that's been haunting me lately. Actually, it's more than a visual thing, I see it and I feel it. I ask someone how they're doing and I can see the tension in their faces. Even when their words say they're okay, their reactions and the energy surrounding them tell a different story. I'm sympathetic because I recognize that look in myself. I've gotten used to that look. In the past, I convinced myself that it's the price you pay for what you have and where you are...
If you’ve ever wanted anything, you know what it’s like to have faith and you know what it’s like to lose faith. Having faith isn’t the problem, keeping the faith is where most of us get challenged. Here’s a quick dose of inspiration to help you keep the faith.
Everything that has a beginning has an end. Life will always throw challenges at us but we can take comfort in knowing that nothing lasts forever. If it has a beginning, it also has an end. Whatever you’re going through right now has an expiration date. It will end.
Embracing this one thought will strengthen you. It will transform you. It will free you. One of the most poignant lessons I've learned is that the more you dare to walk your path, the more you dream bigger, to step outside of the norm, to use your gifts and thrive; the more you are vulnerable... the more you become exposed to other people's criticisms and opinions...
The next time you utter the words “I AM”…take a pause and feel, not think your way around what that really means. So many of us are trapped in the identities the world has created and we’ve accepted. It’s time to wake up and remember.
