Letter From The Editor: Reflection

It’s March already! WOW. I don’t know about the rest of you, but it seems like the older you get, the faster time flies.

My birthday is the 27th of March. This year my birthday falls on Easter! HELLO to all my fellow Aries out there! lol

I think birthdays are always personal reflection periods. I am approaching 27 years of age, and I am filled with so much peace and joy, it’s almost hard for me to believe. I am happy with myself, and I content with the company I keep. I am proud of the young woman I have become and am STILL becoming. I know I have some personal goals that I have made for myself, and I am really looking forward to sharing all my future projects with you all.

I think I can officially say I am in my late 20’s… and as much as I thought I would cringe at the idea of being 3yrs away from “The Dirty 30” … I am actually at peace lol. Surprisingly.

As I get older I am entering another phase of my life, and I welcome this stage with much enthusiasm and optimism. I know there are some people in this world that were not able to see 27, so I am sincerely blessed.

My wish for all of you, is to take a chance to reflect on how far you have come as a person, and where you were a year ago. Reflection is good, and furthermore it is essential for our growth as individuals. Take inventory on your life and analyze your atmosphere. Are you happy ? What improvements or changes can you make moving forward? Remember… every day is a new opportunity for change and to create something better for your life. May happiness & success find all of you. Hello March !

May mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance

xoxo.KC

 

 

Letter From The Editor: Passion + Motivation … one in the same

Each week, I hear from people who say things like, “I start with good intentions, but I can’t seem to maintain my consistency for a long period of time.”

Or, they will say, “I struggle with keeping on track. I get started but I can’t seem to follow through and stay focused for very long.”

Sound familiar? Yea, me too. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. (more…)

… and it’s only HUMP DAY !

As some of you may know I recently started my own business. I FINALLY finalized business card ideas, and the photographer is going to add some more pictures for my website. I cannot wait to do a HUGE launch on everything. Now that my business is doing very well, I’m ready to execute the proper marketing, and advertising. It’s getting a little costly, but you have to invest in yourself. What you put into your business, is a reflection of what you plan to get out of it.

Yesterday, my business partner and I got a lot of work done, and I am so excited about everything this year has to bring! I feel so good.

Come Summer of 2015, my business partner and I will be launching our PR Firm, and I am so incredibly excited about that. We finalized a business name and already have a few potential clients, and events underway.

I have my hands in a few more jars. I can’t wait to share all my other projects with you all !  I am so happy and grateful that everything is coming together. Last year was a really crappy year for me, and I told myself that I would do everything in my power to make sure that 2015 was promising, eventful, and productive. Sometimes you need bad times, to create that fire under your ass.

I’m happy, I’m blessed, and I plan to keep this momentum going.

This week is going fabulous. I hope everyone else’s week is going smoothly and productive. I wish nothing but the best for all of you.

What ventures and goals have you all made this year? I would love to hear about them. How is everyone’s week going so far?

Women: Is it Aggression or is it Self-Sufficient ?

I wanted to have a serious open conversation with all of you. I wanted to know what you guys(women and men) thought about “aggressive women?” I also wanted to know what your definition and perception of an “aggressive woman” is.

So I recently came across this picture on Instagram, I attached it to this post.The picture is basically saying if a woman has a career, is God-fearing and focused she doesn’t need a man. I remember seeing this picture and asking my (now) ex-boyfriend how he felt about it. His response?
” If a woman has all these things, she doesn’t need a man, she wants a confidant “ …. Let’s soak that comment in.

I found the post and his comment extremely chauvinistic.

This is my position. I have always gotten off when people talk about business, career moves, and other professional ventures. I’ve always been that way, ever since I could remember. I remember being little and sitting in the bathroom and pretending that I was being interviewed by Oprah, discussing my latest accomplishments. I’ve always been a little crazy, but we will save that conversation for another post. (more…)

Who I am and Why I’m here.

Why hello there! I have made a few posts, but I wanted to take a few moments and tell you about myself and why I’m here.

Well…My name is KC. I am originally from Southern California. I’m in my twenties, and I am a total free spirit. When its all over, I just want to be able to look back at my life and say that I did what I wanted, how I wanted. Life is too short and too beautiful to be anything less than enjoyable.

I have a personal journal, but I decided to get into blogging, because I enjoy the interaction between people. I like to read, and I enjoy communication. Blogging is like getting the best of both worlds.

My interests are broad, and I plan to discuss a few topics on my blog. I am fully capable of holding an insanely intense conversation about politics, and be just as passionate about mascara. LOL. That’s just how I am. I’m versatile, and I appreciate eclectic dialogue.

I’m here because I want to share parts of my mind with you all. I want to share my thoughts.

The people I have interacted with so far have been wonderful, the energy here is contagious. One of the best things I have experienced is feedback. I really do enjoy interaction, and I love that everyone is opinionated and up for discussion. I hope you guys have enjoyed reading some of my posts; I know I l have found pleasure in reading some of the things that pop up on my feed.

May mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance – Best wishes to you all.

KC

10 Things Not to say at work

I love reading a great article to get you motivated and inspired for the week to come. Today I want to share something I read over at http://www.refinery29.com . The article is titled, “10 Things Not to Say at Work.”

I really appreciated this article because I noticed a few of the “things not to say at work” are or have been things I’ve said at work. The new year is right around the corner. Literally we have about 3 days . Every year calls for a better, improved you. Why not start with your career? As a woman, we should make our presence known when walking into a room and work on owning our thoughts, ideas, and feedback with confidence. Here are the seven phrases that stuck out to me the most.
