Gearing Up For Greatness


Have you ever found your self excited packing for a vacation? You think about how much fun you are going to have and all of the people you are going to meet. However, you still don’t exactly know what is going to happen. But guess what…you want to be prepared for whatever may happen. That exhilarating feeling of anticipation and adventure is what DRIVES you to be prepared.

You want to make sure that no matter where you are or what you do, you will have all the necessary “things” so that you can have the best time possible. I know that there are some of you that are on the BRINK of phenomenal success that may be foreign to you. You may be an entrepreneur that has been putting everything into their dreams and visions. You may be an advocate for a cause and are dedicated to being apart of a movement. Or you could just be someone that is tired of just surviving through life and wants to live a life of purpose and design.

If you are in an “in between” season in your life but you are still able to smile and be positive…START PACKING FOR GREATNESS! Something amazing is about to happen in your life and you need to be prepared mentally, physically, and spiritually. There is nothing worse than embarking on the journey of a lifetime and not being prepared for it.

Ready, Set…Get Fit!


The above picture is of 82 women who are ready to get back in shape! About two months ago I was introduced to a program called Black Girls Run. Upon researching I discovered that they had a chapter in Philadelphia and yesterday was a new member meet up on Boat House Row. I was absolutely amazed at all of the women who were there and ready to take charge of their fitness. They were from all backgrounds, shapes, and sizes. There were runners, walkers, joggers, and woggers (those who jog and walk). I discovered that I am a Wogger! I Wogged 3 miles and it did not feel like work! I had an awesome time and I will be joining these ladies next week for their 5:15am run. I am looking forward to getting fit and I believe that this is a great first step!
