Wrapping Up 2016 with Anna

It seems like forever since I last posted. I am still here inspiring the world through positive vibes and doing good deeds. A wise man once said:

Service to others is the rent you pay for

your room here on earth.

A brief description of my year can be simplified as trial and error. Quitting what most people would consider a “damn good job” to venture out in search of happiness elsewhere. Allowed me to launch my own online business “EveryPartofAnna Boutique”  with the support of my fellow Queens it has done well. I also opened my home based art club Creative Connections KAC for the community youth ages 2-10.

2016 was a year of soul searching. I have been perfecting my poetic gifts to share with the world. I have been blessed to meet and befriend so many talented Queens & Kings this year. My husband and I have mastered the art of budgeting lol.

I am currently 2 weeks away from my 1 year Big Chop Anniversary. Yayyyyyyyyy!!! 1 year fully natural no heat. Its been a beautiful hair journey.

This is just a snippet of my year.Nonetheless,  I am very thankful for all the blessings and lessons received. Many souls I have decided to leave behind and very little I am willing to take forward with me in my upcoming year. When I think of 2017:

I envision BLACK LIBERATION, UNITY IN BLACK COMMUNITIES, SHARING OUR GUIDES TO OWNERSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER, SELF LOVE & PRESERVATION.

My mission will always remain the same:

To inspire the world piece by peace. Positively.

Special thanks to my husband Avery for being my rock and #1 fan no matter how many goals I set for myself, you are there to keep my plan to reach them in order. My aunt Tesheda, who motivates and captivates me in ways she will never know. All of the friends and family who have supported any of my endeavors. You are greatly appreciated.

 

P.S. It’s Fall. Have you noticed?

Has anyone else felt this beautiful weather that sings “Fall is Here”?

In South Florida we rarely get fall and winter weather. For some reason it been super windy and the skies have been beautiful. I will not complain one bit. I love this time of the year.

Here are a list of 3 things that remind you its Fall:

1. Pumpkin Everything

I am sure we all have seen the new commercials for Starbucks, McDonalds and even Dunkin Doughnuts. The now have pumpkin flavored latte’s, spice coffee, and even Pumpkin shakes. I am not the biggest fan of Pumpkin flavored drinks and food but I hear its delicious. Also, in your local Home Goods or Bath & Body works you’ll find scented candles. I do love the smell of pumpkin wall flowers and candles. I have the most pleasantly scented body cream with a cinnamon and pumpkin scent. Its super light but smells great.  (Candles, Wall Flowers, Scents, and Flavors for coffees/Tea)

2. New Color Schemes & Clothing  in Department Stores

I love shopping. Anytime of the year is great for shopping if you ask me. When Fall arrives this means  new cozy colors. No we have are essentials for the fall. Browns, Mustard Yellow, Olive, Forest Green, Orange, Denim(Dark Blue) and even Merlot(Dark Devilish Red). All the blazers and sweaters are back in style. Let us not forget the sales we can catch on boots and booties. I started purchasing scarves  this past week. They seem to be a great accent item to add to any outfit.

3. What do YOU do in the fall season?

In the fall, my family bakes. It’s not an everyday thing but the baking is happening. Whether it’s the weather keeping everyone inside or the kids just wanting to make hot cocoa. Families tend to be more “Together” during the fall and winter seasons. We patiently await that special day called Thanksgiving for an all you can eat feast.

“Mornings Matter”

Mornings Matter

I know I am not the only person who may sometimes wake up a little grumpy or not in the best mood. This “morning-moodiness” you can never truly explain. I mean, I had a great night and there wasn’t anything that pissed me off this morning or other mornings that I can recall. I have found out that Mornings Matter.
Our mornings are the beginning of our day. Maybe you’re getting the kids ready for school, getting organized for the workday, walking the dog, morning yoga, getting ready for class, or even running errands. The attempt at a positive morning can keep your day or even the rest of your week on a positive level. Smiling and telling your significant other good morning with a kiss can change your day. Thanking God for waking you and the family up in the morning surely helps us start our day off with sunshine. Reading positive and inspirational quotes or pictures can help take your mind to a positive place.

Personally, the uses of inspirational and positive readings like quotes or words from my favorite speakers or authors usually help me to maintain a good energy in the mornings. Starting off your mornings in a positive ways can help you deal with the stress from work and life. It pushes toward a positive outlook on anything negative that may come your way. Positive mornings give off the energy to overlook bad moments that may occur throughout your day. It allows you to look at those negative moments and say you know what “I won’t let that ruin my day.”

Try to start your mornings off on a positive note. Let that energy flow through your day and I guarantee by the time you make it home, your days compared to other hectic ones won’t seem so stressful. I myself would wake up some days with an attitude for no reason. I couldn’t begin to explain to you guys why I was upset or angry but it had a negative effect on my relationship. My husband probably thought plenty of mornings what did he do wrong. Honestly, he did everything right. He kept the positive energy throughout whatever it was I was dealing with. He starts our morning off with a kiss and a good morning. So bye-bye negative energy. My Mornings Matter!!!! (laughs out loud) Try it. Keep me posted on your progress you guys.
