Today I am rocking my Black Girls Are Magic tshirt (get yours here) with my favorite wide leg trousers and blasting Beyonce as loud as my speakers will allow because IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! I can honestly say that this has been a wild ride of a year. I had my first child, bought my first home with my husband, got a new job, and have started on the incredible journey of this blog so I would say a celebration is in order! That’s right, I’m throwing my own party because sometimes you just have to forget about all the stuff that’s going wrong and focus on what’s going right. Sometimes you have to ignore how the world would like to identify you and pay attention to the fabulousness that is YOU!
One of my favorite activities to do with clients is to help them create a Celebrating My Fabulousness playlist. This is the playlist you listen to when you’ve had a long day at work and cannot wait until it’s the weekend. This is the playlist you listen to when your boo has gotten on your nerves for the last time and you need a break. This is the playlist you listen to when you are preparing for a night out with the girls where you’ll be wearing that little black dress that is a showstopper. This is the playlist you listen to when you need to be reminded that in it all and through it all, you are amazing. You are unstoppable. You are beautiful. You are intelligent. You are loved. You are courageous. You are bold. You are creative. You are brilliant. You are unique. You are FABULOUS. Your fabulous doesn’t have to look like the next sister’s fabulous but that doesn’t make your’s any less awesome. Here’s my Celebrating My Fabulousness playlist. What’s on yours?
