Stay TRUE. Stay YOU. ❤️

What’s one quality that you’ve been appreciated for?

What’s one quality that you embrace in yourself?



Hey YOU. Yes YOU! That’s who I want to see. In unadulterated beauty. In unfiltered goodness.  In genuine purity. In elegant simplicity. In silent eloquence. In boisterous merriment. In reticent pensiveness. In raging boldness. In out-of-the-box madness. In irrepressible humor.  In unquenchable curiosity. In all-that-you-truly-are form.

I want to see YOU draped in nothing but your authenticity. Yes, the real you. Not the dolled up, heavily made up you. Not the multiple-diet, pound-shaven you. Not the embellished, propped-up brand you. Not the insatiably hungry-for-likes you. Not the superficial, insta-you. Not anyone else attempting to be you.

Why? It’s the only language that I know, in my head and in my heart. Authenticity. In my world, everything is just as it is. Real and deep to the core. Yes, wrinkles, spider veins, and more.  I say what I mean and I mean what I say. I do what I do because that’s my personal choice.  I carve out my day in a way that honors my soul and casts my light on whom I want to behold.

So, if you’d like for us to live happily in our shared world, this would be a great start. I’ll be myself and you’ll be yourself. It’s as simple as that. Be-YOU-tiful! That’s all you ever have to be! ❤️

This is my love message to my nieces and all the young girls in my life. And yes, this is also a sweet reminder for all gorgeous women out there who know that their real beauty and worth lie in who they are deep within. To all of you ladies, Stay Be-YOU-tiful! ❤️



It’s a brand new day! (Audience response:  APPLAUSE).  With brand new smiles and handshakes. Brand new dreams and aspirations. Brand new hopes and ambitions. Brand new creations and designs. Brand new meetings and workshops. Brand news deals and contracts. Brand new options and solutions.

Weather forecast? Generally sunny skies aaaaall oooover!  (Audience response:  MAJORLY THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE).

Now, in contrast, jump to the next scene.

It’s a brand new day! (Audience response:  SIGH).  With brand new irritations and apprehensions. Brand new nitpicking and criticizing. Brand new anxieties and fears. Brand new foreboding and negativity. Brand new threats and attacks. Brand new problems and complaints.

Weather forecast? Generally heavy rains and thunderstorms aaaaall oooover! (Audience response: LOUDEST SIGH …… MOAN, GROAN, or however you’d articulate insufferable displeasure).

Funny really. Actually, odd. The day presents itself as a neutral point in time. It’s just exactly that. A DAY.

However, our attitudes and mindsets spell all the difference. Do we choose to focus on the positive things in life? That choice propels us to go on. Or do we choose to focus on the negative things in life? That choice weakens us and halts us altogether.

Of course, I’m fully aware that life isn’t a bed or roses. There are expectedly a number of thorns along the way. And yet …. A big YET ….. there are also a plethora of blessings that await us …. a rainbow of renewed hopes that we can hold on to ….  a multitude of miracles that are raring to unfold before our very eyes.

So at the end of the day ….. or should I say, at the beginning of the day (haha!) …. It’s really a matter of focus, of perspective, of angle, of vision.

I may not know what my day holds, but I definitely choose happiness. Yup, aaaaall oooover!

So popping my happy pill, I say, “Hey world, I’m ready for my brand new “BRAND YOU” day! Yeah, bring it on!” ❤️

Like I shared in my previous post (July 27), as for my journey, what you see is what you get. Authenticity is my core.

Does that strike a chord in you? Would love to hear how Authenticity resonates with you and impacts your life too.
