How often do we minimalize ourselves for the sake of those around us? We have this constant nagging voice in our heads that remind us not to be boastful, arrogant, or conceded.

Woke Up In A Mood

I woke up this morning in a mood. I woke up this morning and decided that mood would be a great one. I got dressed in my closet without a mirror. I did my hair simple. I put on my makeup. I picked out my jewelry based on what I wanted to wear, not what … Continue reading Woke Up In A Mood
