Cleopatra is known as a cunning seductress who was able to secured her lovers ( Mark Antony and Julius Ceasar) to ensure her political power. Thats what you learn in history class they don’t teach you about her a diplomat, naval commander, linguist, and medical author. Cleopatra held Egypt together in a time of political turmoil. She was the last ruler during Egypt’s defiance of the Roman Empire’s expansion. She spoke Egyptian in a time of all other rulers speaking Greek. She was Egypt’s sole ruler becoming one of the first females to have this much power. AND SHE DID IT ALL WELL LOOKING INCREDIBLE AND CREATING HER ICONIC LOOK!
Queen Elizabeth is most notably known as the virgin queen and the daughter of Henry the III. But we hardly hear about her cunning ablitiy to handle any and every political problem she faced during her reign for 47 years. She brought unity and prosperity to England. She decided to marry not cause she COULDN’T get a man but because she believed God gave her the divine right to rule and to never give her power to a man. She solidified the establishment of Protestantism, defeated the Spanish Armada and commissioned new trade roots that would lead to the discovery of the colonies. ALL BY HERSELF. •
It’s okay to be alone, these women created empires without a man by their side. SO CAN YOU! •
GO CONQUER THIS WORLD!
The love we are seeking must begin with ourselves first. Sometimes that takes solitude, self healing, self care, self development.... One must dig deep to heal spiritually, mentally and physically. When you realize you’ve truly come to love yourself by no longer accepting things that will do you harm, you will begin to glow differently. Not only will you glow differently, you will love differently and expect to be loved differently. 2019 GLOW DIFFERENTLY!
Buat kamu yang berstatus single alias jomblo, perlu banget untuk tau nih perbedaan antara being alone dengan lonely. Apa sih bedanya? Uh, bedanya besar banget!
Alone atau sendiri adalah kondisi dimana tidak ada orang lain yang bersama kamu. Sedangkan Lonely atau kesepian adalah kondisi dimana kamu merasa sedih dan tertekan karena kamu merasa sendirian.
Kamu bisa alone tanpa menjadi lonely, tapi kamu bisa menjadi lonely bahkan walopun kamu udah punya pacar, lagi rame-rame hang out dan ga alone. Kamu bisa ketawa ketiwi di luar, tapi begitu masuk kamar nangis ngerasa hidup hampa dan ga tau mesti cerita isi hati kamu sama siapa.
Nah, kamu termasuk yang mana? Alone atau lonely? Kalau kamu lonely, sekarang saatnya untuk ngalahin rasa lonely itu, caranya :
1. Pandang diri kamu sebagai ciptaan Tuhan yang ajaib, unik dan satu-satunya di bumi. Seringkali perasaan kesepian muncul karena kita ngerasa ga berharga dan ga punya tujuan hidup.
2. Pilih teman-temen yang positif yang menghargai kamu apa adanya. Jenis teman yang negative dan maksa kamu ikutin gaya mereka patut kamu hindari, mereka hanya akan menciptakan lubang kesepian yang semakin dalam.
3. Cari kegiatan positif yang bikin kamu bisa belajar sesuatu, ngembangin potensi dan melihat dunia lebih luas sehingga kamu ga fokus sama masalah kamu sendiri.
4. Jangan suka ngebandingin diri sama orang lain. Masing-masing orang punya berkat dan masalahnya sendiri. Kalau kamu sibuk ngebandingin, jadi ga punya waktu untuk bersyukur. Sabar aja, si dia akan datang pada waktu yang tepat saat kamu siap 😊
5. Berani untuk minta pertolongan dan bimbingan kepada orang yang tepat dan dapat dipercaya, misalnya keluarga, counselor di gereja, teman atau senior yang kamu rasa bisa jadi teladan dan punya “kehidupan”
Ayo, jangan stag sama rasa kesepian kamu. Kesepian yang ga diatasi bisa membawa kamu jauh dari rencana Tuhan yang sangat mulia buat kamu. Sayang banget kan.

Women are such amazing beings.
They're so complex and rich.
You get grace, soft, passive, and also strong, hard and active.
All in one package.
Balanced and whole.
Well..... I said it... yes I did. There’s nothing more detrimental to your life than people that are ALWAYS SAYING YES! The fastest way to derail your life is by having a group of people that say YES to all that you do. You need folks that will critique you, polk holes in your ideas, be a sounding board when you’re not logical etc. if you don’t have you some - get some!
Next stop on my “From Pain to Purpose Tour”. I was so reluctant at first to step out and do anything like this. I mean, who cares about what I have to say? I’m probably the only one walking around pretending not to still be in pain? How can I help someone else when I am not fully healed? Well after soul searching & speaking with Coach Robyn @rrebirthingcenter
I found my purpose. Therefore, I stepped up and out on Faith. My first two stops gave me the confidence and push that I needed to keep going. I spoke to so many women and they shared my similar pain but was afraid to say it out loud. I received emails from women telling me my story helped them. At that point I realize not only am I able to help others through my story BUT I can help them tell their story through assisting in publishing their book or starting a business. Therefore, I must remember the reward is in the end not the moment. Keep pushing!
Take up space. As a woman we are taught (often indirectly by society) to be smaller, lesser, quieter. We internalize this in different ways; my way to cope manifested in the form of an eating disorder, and although it has been roughly eight years since my recovery, I still feel the need to take up less space. In Yoga we are told to “hold in your ribs” and I misinterpreted this for years as “don’t take a big breath”, for the fear that my ribs would expand. Don’t breath? That’s not yoga! Breath and take up space. Let your body move how it intuitively wants to. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. It didn’t feel right “holding in my ribs” when I reached my arms out, but I did it anyway, because I didn’t want to do anything improperly. That’s another thing women are taught: be proper, follow the rules, don’t challenge authority. Let this be your permission to challenge the status quo. Listen to yourself, your body, your gut. Move your body, take up space, and for glob’s sake BREATH! • P.S. the que “hold in your ribs”
doesn’t mean don’t let your ribs move at all! It means engage your abs 😉

“Each country we visit teaches us new things. Some places teach us patience, others appreciation. Some places break us down completely, and make us question everything, while others refill our tank and send us on our way, happier than ever”.
I’m not in Copenhagen at the moment, and I don’t have any plans of going. However, tomorrow I’m going to Stockholm for a few days and at the end of the month me and hubby are going to Budapest. This is what happens to me during these cold as dark times - I yearn of seeing and experiencing other cities, countries and cultures!🌟 Feel me?☺️
This photo was taken in August when me and hubby were in Copenhagen for a few days. This is a photo of Nyhavn, one of the most characteristic places of Copenhagen. 🇩🇰🌟

It’s been a looong road but for some reason I feel like I’m just getting started 🤷🏾♀️ _____________________
Posted my take on the #10yearchallenge
on my stories on Sunday and was so overwhelmed by the amount of messages I woke up to. From conversations about finding the courage to do what you love to body confidence and changes after babies and of course a good ole laugh about the next slide. (SWIPE😂) Now onto the cheesy bit but I’ve probably said to a lot of you already in the DM’s.
‘What a time to be alive.’’A time when we are all starting to realise that there’s enough glow to go around. 🤔 What good is a chandelier with just one bulb 💡 when the beauty of it’s glow comes from all the bulbs 💡 lit together. Ladies let’s stay lit together without forgetting to check when it seems like one of the lights in our circle needs a little help getting her Glow back ✨ We’re all on a journey but you better start trusting the process because quite often that’s when you’ll start to the see progress. ❤️❤️❤️
I want to pass along an idea that really spoke to me this week.
(Spoiler alert, if you get my Monday motivation emails every week, you already read this. If not, it’s not too late! Just DM me your email!)
I was listening to a podcast & the host was speaking about the difficulties she experienced before succeeding as an entrepreneur.
She explained how many setbacks/excuses she used to dwell on in order to justify the fact that she was stuck in life.
What she said next really struck me. I'll paraphrase it for you:
Your biggest obstacle isn't a lack of money, time, creativity, or energy.
It's not situational or circumstantial. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your biggest obstacle is YOU.
So basically, if we can figure out how to get out of our own way, we're going to experience growth like never before. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whatever cap is on your life right now- whether it be fear, anxiety, doubt, or all of the above, isn't being kept there by anyone else but you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know I've still gotta get out of my own way in many aspects of my life, but I will say I'm also proud of how far I've come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you read this email, I challenge you to not only look forward to how you can grow even more in this area, but to also look back & give yourself credit for how far you've already come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s the biggest mindset block holding you back? Let me know!
