‼️ I AM HER. Born and raised in Jersey and made a drastic decision to change my environment before the environment changed me any further. I am her, the one who was BROKEN at a very early age. I am her.. the young lady who learned not to trust “girlfriends” early. I am her...the girl that was young, lost, and in need of LOVE from men due to lack of love from her “main man”. I am her...the one who misused herself. I am her..the one who allowed men to batter, abuse, and misuse her physically, emotionally, spiritually, and more on several occasions; two being relationships. I am her..the one who tried to take the ending of my life into my own hands twice. I am her... hit with more sickness that one can handle. I AM HER! This is some of her. You may not have MY story, BUT YOU ARE HER! 💯The one who chose to overcome. The one who chose to get back up. The one who had all the odds against her and chose to fight back anyway. You are the one who still deals with things of the past but lives for the future like that no longer troubles you. YOU ARE HER... you have a story...a story that defines the SUPERWOMAN you are. I AM HER...YOU ARE HER.. AS WOMEN, we are HER!! Let’s never forget where we been, because it can shed a bright light to where we desire to go! ✋🏽✋🏽IF NOONE HAS EVER TOLD YOU..today I APPLAUD YOU FOR BEING HER💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽 UNAPOLOGETICALLY, GRACEFULLY LIVING, CONSTANTLY OVERCOMING...HER!
‼️This video is a testament of your passion making room for you. YOUR GIFTS making room for you. All @imbriyonce does is what she loves! She’s good at it. She learned this choreography from what @jaquelknight did for @beyonce... in minutes, that takes not only skill, but a love for what you do. This love for what she does has now taken her places unimaginable. She’s been consistent. She’s been doing what she’s been doing since childhood and now her gifts are making ALOT OF room. She was on @theellenshow TODAY doing exactly what she loves! 💯I say all that to say YOU CAN DO ANYTHING your heart desires. Be consistent. Always hold on to your plan A. Be willing to do what it takes to get there. I promise your time will come, MY TIME WILL come. Act in purpose. Keep your passion. And it will come to pass!
‼️#trulytransparent I don’t know where you are in your life or what’s going on but let me 💯. I ain’t perfect! Never been nor claimed to be. There are days im fighting against my own demons now...things I don’t know if I can win if I fight back. But the moral of the story is...I’m still standing..still fighting. Even when it looks like a defeat is upon me, IM STILL FIGHTING. 💯💯 I fought for a lot of things in my life, including MY LIFE! And trust and believe.. there were a lot of things I fought for, that wasn’t even worth it..but the #majorkey is I’ve always chose to fight. 🙏🏽So no matter where you are in your life right now. No matter what you’re fighting. Even if it looks like you will lose; shift your mentality, get yourself ready and willing to fight. I’m worth fighting for, aren’t you?
‼️#trulytransparent thinking back... I had a fixed mindset! I didn’t really believe things were TRULY possible. I let what people see and say as “normal” shape my views on what I could do. My CAN was not greater than my CAN NOT! I saw the cards I was dealt as the only hand I would have instead of looking at all the possibilities that could come from this hand. Something amazing happens when your mentality shifts. I kept it real with you and myself, will you do the same? 💯👇🏽Comment below, do you have a fixed or growth mindset and why👇🏽 ________________________________________
‼️I just wonder what would have happened if I would of never took that leap? That leap out of my comfort zone. I wonder what would of happened if I would have listened to those I shared my dream with and they shot down. I wonder what would have happened if I had continued to doubt my own abilities, passion, and purpose? Hmmm.. I wonder. SEE SOMETIMES, you’re going to have to go against the grain. Do what’s not “fashionable” or even understood! Sometimes all you’re going to have is that “thing” God gave you and faith greater than all things.. and sometimes..that’s all you need! 👉🏽 I need you to comment below 👇🏽👇🏽
my question to you is.. WILL YOU TRULY FIGHT FOR WHAT YOU WANT NO MATTER?

‼️Sometimes the only way to live, is to die. There are many old habits, people, things of the past, and overall THINGS that you are going to have to let go to become THAT person. It’s detrimental for you to die of those bad things to become the new you! Don’t be Afraid of Change, it’s necessary for growth. Evaluate the equation, subtract the non-beneficial things, and add some purpose and fire to that thing and GO!
✨I am female✨
The Empowered Woman, she moves through the world with a sense of confidence and grace.
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom. Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation and the life she leads is of her own creation.
She now understands what it means to live and let live. How much to ask for herself and how much to give. She has a strong, yet generous heart and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart.
Like the mythical Phoenix, she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence,
unfettered by the things that once that posed such resistance.
Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so clearly.
She hears the wind rustling through the trees; beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly. She feels the softness of her hands and muses at the strength that they possess. Her needs and desires she has learned to express. She has tasted bitter and savored the sweet fruits of life, overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife. And the one thing she never understood, she now knows to be true, it all begins and ends with you. -Sonny Carroll
‼️So my coach @kendallficklin posed a question the other day about our quarter one “grades”. He asked what grade would we give ourselves for things we set out to do for Q1 versus what we actually did and put in effort to do. 💯It can be hard to be real with yourself and say man “ I failed” or I didn’t really put in any effort. But let me tell you! Being #trulytransparent I straight up gave myself a “D-“. There was SOOOO MUCH more effort I could of put in and I didn’t complete my major goals , but instead of whining about it, I’m going about it different for Q2 and making it more attainable.
‼️Can you be honest with yourself, what “grade” would you give yourself for Quarter 1?

‼️You don’t know my story.. you don’t know the things that I’ve come through.. so grateful I can tell it🎤🎼🎼 The lyrics to this song says so much.. many will judge what and who they don’t understand. Everything isn’t packaged the same. We are not the same. Even though I’ve gone through hell, I wouldn’t trade a minute. Even though I’ve had MANY people put me down since being a teenager until now.. I took it! Even though I’ve struggled with body issues and self confidence at so many points in my life, IM GRATEFUL for it! Because without those moments I wouldn’t know me, love me, embrace me, save lives and find purpose all in the midst of it. ‼️So I post this in celebration of the RESURRECTION of me. The dying of the old and the welcoming of the new. I can’t wait for miracles, I have to be one! I can’t wait on greatness, I am. I AM TRULY INSPIRED MARTIN... I AM... I AM...who are you?
‼️Hey you!!! YES, YOU‼️ I want you to understand that you are human and it is OK to be human!it is OK to go through life and not understand! it is OK! Don’t ever get caught up in how society tells you you should act or how you should handle what you are dealing with. It is absolutely necessary to cope and deal how you deem necessary. Take great advice, accept help where it is needed, but don’t internalize so much that nothing happens externally. Although things will come and times will make you feel like you do not possess the superpower that you have, you still have to put on the cape and get to work! Only you can add the word SUPER in front of your human👊🏽
‼️my #WCW goes to self! Only God and purpose can direct you to places like #be100radio when technically “ I am not qualified”! But when I say he qualifies the unqualified for things only HE CAN DO!
Oh Dana! ...Oh how much you’ve endured and still came through. How many times you’ve been broken and still glued the pieces back together. How many times have you wanted to quit and still never did. How many times has life dealt you the worse hand and you played what you were dealt with a losing hand and still found a way to WIN! My downfalls have taken me to places a “perfect” life would have never! I will never say life is easy, because it’s not. There will always be things that make me wonder why me... but when I remember, WHY NOT ME? I was built for a purpose. FORD TOUGH! Built to last and outlast ANYTHING! So no matter what comes your way.. it’s okay to have your moment, but don’t forget to GET PAST IT!
