Allowing Change

One-Minute Thankful

Thankful Meditation

“Sometimes we pray for God to change our circumstances when God wants to use our circumstances to change us.”

Thankful Affirmation

I’m not sure how I feel about that. Simply relaxing and allowing change is so hard for me. I am a doer. A controller. I take charge. I get things done. I know how to handle the situation.

One-Minute Thankful

Thankful Meditation

The Godly Chic Diaries

Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it…

I’ve always had a deep respect for Youtubers who manage to turn a hobby into a career. Lilly Singh, the infamous (iisuperwomanii) has over 13 million YouTube subscribers, has written a New York Times Bestselling book “How to be a Bawse” (which is definitely worth reading) launched a bombshell lipstick with smashbox cosmetics, is one of the most humble humanitarian out there and that is just the beginning. She is honestly so cool, hardworking, hilarious and everything. She’s had a YouTube channel for over half a decade and despite everything going on in her life. She still manages to post two content videos a week for her fans.(fangirl right here😍) And when she started, she probably had no idea how far it would…
