2018: Shifting into Purpose!

Happy 2018, everyone!!!

I am soooo happy to start the New Year! And I’m soooo happy to see 2017 go!

2017 was quite the year for me: a year of great gains but also a year of great losses.

I lost my Grandma.

Gained a new full-time job.

Launched a children’s book and gained an exciting side-hustle.

Lost my free time.

Gained experience in running a start-up with My Partner-In-Crime.

Gained an amazing group of sisters.

Lost my other Grandmother.

Gained knowledge, insight, and great friends at my 9-to-5…as well as a ridiculous workload.

Nearly lost my mind.

Lost respect for some people.

Left my job and gained my freedom back!

Needless to say, 2017 was stressssful! And though a lot of horrible things happened, I can honestly say that it was good for me to be afflicted (Ps. 119:71).

I came across this post on Instagram in November- at just the right time- and it gave me the confirmation I needed to trust God completely with my situation (thanks, @naturallycole_!)

Indeed, sometimes sh** happens so the shift can happen! I had some not-so-pleasant experiences in 2017, but they had to happen to remind me of my purpose and my potential, and push me to pursue my destiny!

So I thank the sh**-disturbers in my life for shifting me into my purpose while you were dishing out doo-doo, I was using it as manure!

2017 laid the groundwork for 2018, and this year, I know I’m shifting from STRESS to SUCCESS! Stay tuned…

How do you plan to shift from stress into success in 2018?

Available Now: What Are You Gonna Do with that Hair?

Everyone knows Zuri as “the girl with the puffy hair.” Her afro is big and fluffy, and not even gravity can keep it down. People often ask her, “What are you gonna do with that hair?” Zuri finds the answer in her cultural hair-itage and shows she can sculpt and shape her curls and coils into beautiful works of African art—braids, ‘locks, bantu knots—in other words, whatever she wants!

This illustrated non-fiction book encourages Black girls to celebrate the beauty and versatility of their natural hair and learn the rich history of natural hairstyles.
