Every year around the same time I always have some sort of premonition. Usually trying to put my life into perspective. Asking myself “What is my purpose?” This year is not much different except this time I am trying to recover from the amount of unnecessary stress I have endured in this year alone.
Happy Monday! As you may know, yesterday I was blessed to celebrate another year of life! How time files when your busy and having fun! So much has happened in the past few months that my birthday kind of snuck up on me and I was literally unprepared! No solid plans and definitely nothing to wear. But that didn’t stop me from enjoying my day.
My mission is to utilize my god-given gifts of natural talent, intelligence, determination, patience, and serial optimism to cultivate the self-worth and net-worth of all women of color in male dominated industries.
That is my mission statement. I look at it everyday and make sure that everything I do helps my mission.
In college I took a class that was geared towards helping students become great leaders. We all had to read Sun Tsu’s The Art of War, participate in mock interviews, cultivate elevator speeches, and more. During the course my professor also spoke about personal mission statements.
Please note that I am not affiliated with any of the brands that I have mentioned in this post and I have and will always give my honest opinion.
About 5 years ago I started a YouTube channel with the goal to show Women of Color (WOC), like myself, how to wear makeup.
So every girl has a pair of jeans that they would die for right? … No? Okay. Well I love mine almost that much especially because they are also stonewashed. My job usually has a casual dress code on Fridays. So I was scrounging my closet to find something that was presentable for work.
