About Me

My photo
Mother of 2, Child of God in Atlanta "They always ask me if I make it am I going to forget about them, but the question is, if I don't make it will they forget about me?" My spin : RealTalk When u are up everyone wants to hang on, but look for the ones that let you lean on when you are down. Remember...don't just look for me when I am up, support me when I'm down. ♥ In prosperity, your friends know you, in adversity, you know your friends. I asked God for strength, I got adversity. I asked God for wisdom, I was made a fool of. I asked for patience, I had a difficult relationship. I looked back, He gave me what I asked for. Adversity showed me I was stronger than I thought; being a fool opened my eyes to discernment making me wise; the difficult relationship showed me that patience is earned not given. Blessings come in many forms, not all of them recognizable.

Day 9 Influence

9. List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

  • My mom - she was always a go-getter.  Everyone wanted to be in her presence.  She had a magnetic personality.
  • Pastor LaMar - He helped me find a mature relationship with Christ.
  • Pastor Demetra - She showed me that you can be strong and loving yet still be a woman and allow your husband to lead. 
  • Ava - She was/is a great friend.  Her influence led me to the church where I eventually gave my life to Christ. 
  • My ex-husband - I learned that love doesn't hurt and his influence led me to always follow my gut instinct. 
  • My sons - They made me want to be a good example and I learned true unconditional love. 
  • Chantell Christopher -  She taught me the art of storytelling through theatre.  The importance of making it feel like life and not acting.  I am forever grateful to her and value our friendship. 
  • My dad - He taught me that you need to be a multi-faceted person.  My dad can go from the hood to the palace and never be out of place.  He speaks multiple languages and yet is still down to earth. 
  • Love of my Life - He taught me that you don't have to always be right; sit back, listen and admitting that you are wrong doesn't make you a failure. 
  • Earl O. - He was the best manager I ever had.  He even encouraged me after I left the company.  He showed me that great managers lead by example, have empathy, knowledge and great character.
