Check Out My Early Fall Favorites



I mention earlier that I have been reading Jen Sincero, the author of “You are a Badass. How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life”.

You are Badass..

I am so glad that the universe guided me to this book again. I remember reading it once before but it was so important that I read it now. As of lately I have been having a hard and yet again I am comparing my work to others.

When I begin to doubt myself then yet again I don’t act at all. I am paralyze by fear and doubt. Without movement then there is no action, and no growth at all.

Overall, Jen books make total sense and it has been helping trust myself, skills, and be total badass.

Book 2

In addition, I have been reading this novel by Honoree Fanonne Jeffers. It is called ” The Love Songs of W.E.B Dubois. A very historical tale that shares a family history from beginning to better beginnings to come. The reader and writer bug has got me and I am loving. My goal is to be finish with this book by the end of August. What are some of your goals this month?

  1. Working on improving my finances. I have been sticking to a budget, tracking my daily finances, and shopping with cash only 
  2. Setting up my resale shop. One of the hardest goals I want to finishing up this month.
  3. I am still healing. Everyday actually. So I give myself time to pray and meditate in the morning and at night. In addition write one thing down that I am grateful out of the day.
  4. Stand up for myself even when I feel like I am small. I am allowed to speak up for myself
  5. Work on time management by setting measurable and attainable goals for myself. I see that creating a to-do list has been helping stay focus on what I need and want to do for the day.
  6. When I am feeling stress out at work, take a day off or use my coping skill technique I learn for anxious moments. I can improve on following through for myself. Take action and trust in my skillset 
  7. Commit to buying from 1-2 black owned business or donate to organization that benefits the Black community, or the underprivileged once a month.
  8. Remember to be kind to myself, Giving myself grace. Say one thing you love about yourself everyday.
  9. Get back into YouTube again! YOUTUBE Continuance. Produce 1 video each week to help grow my channel and influence.
