Holiday Edition

February 2019

We are in the first quarter of the year and the into the second month.  Hopefully are feeling like you’re new routines are sticking. They say if you can commit in 30 days to something new it becomes a part of you.  Be sure to be vigilant in whatever goals you set so you can crush them.  Don’t give up too even if January wasn’t as prosperous as you expected.  Its okay to renew and reset as often as possible.

February is Black History month and as a African-American woman its not just observed in one short month but all year long.  However I am grateful that communities will take time out to learn and enjoy the culture.

Love month alert! Yes Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. The time where relationships are either uplifted, or on a snow ball to Hell.  The time of year where singles lose it and friendships are tested.  Remember to first love you, also make this holiday what you want it to be about.
