How Many Of Us Have Them?


The girls and I minus one (left-right: myself, Portia, Ashley, Tia)

A few weeks have passed since I last posted for #PositiveMondays, but that is truly my most busy and longest day at work so I don't get to blog too much. Don't hold it against me! :) Since today is Monday, it's only right for me to give my little dose of positive energy to start my readers off right. Well I have every reason to think positively today and here's why. I can count my best friends on one hand, I have four of them. This past weekend me and one of my best friends (who already graduated college) traveled to Richmond, VA for two of my other best friends' college graduations. That only leaves myself and another one of my best friends without degrees thus far, but trust and believe we'll get there.

To know everything these ladies went through to get where they are makes me SO PROUD to call them my friends. I'm the youngest of us all, so it's good having real friends to be honest with you and motivate you like mine do. We all have been friends since elementary school, so you can't even imagine everything we've been through together. For us to be able to say that we're still hanging in there, and we're on a path to greatness is EPIC to me. Mind you, we are all young BLACK females which speaks volumes in itself! We each have a "story" that leads us up to where we are. And none of our journeys have been easy. Definitely not the most difficult in the world, but not easy in the slightest. That goes to show that with hard work, determination, and the right mind state you can do and be whatever you want!

And if that isn't enough to make you feel positive, I've got one for you... Despite the "Doom's Day" predictions that were flying around the world, you're still here! The world didn't end Saturday at 6 pm to everyone's surprise *sarcastic face* so stop complaining about everything and CREATE A GOOD DAY!!

  1. How precious!!!!!!! Look at us....will u just look! Distance, time, disagreements, different choices and when u put us all together including kristen all I see is love and determination and the definiton of sisterhood. I am so positive because I feel like alone I have a testimony because at one time I couldn't see the positive side of things. But all of us do. All of us prove to be self made... and together we will always be a force to be reckoned with. I had great family, and awesome friendsand a man that has stood by me still. And the best part of it all they came together and threw me a surprise party ha ha..so funny. If u ain't surrounding yourself with positive people who are able to go through obstacles and are big thinkers who u can motivate and become motivated, pray, and keep it real...replace yourself. I love my team! Together we are Doing it. *throws shades on*
