Happy Monday everybody! The weekend’s always great, but it’s time to get back to the grind for many of us. I’m honestly dragging a little bit this morning, but I’m optimistic for the week ahead. Hope y’all are too. Here’s some #MondayMotivation to kick off your week!

I hope that this quote from former First Lady Rosalynn Carter is a big push in the right direction for you. Be confident today and every day in the gift and talent inside of you, but also be strong enough to follow through and truly make something of it! Don’t just sit around and waste what has been given to you. Boldly go after your life’s purpose. 

If your gift is music, invest in time at the studio or research getting your own recording equipment and creating quality music from home. If your gift, like mine, is writing, start that blog you’ve been thinking about forever, or pitch different magazines or papers with your great story ideas! Study others in your field and see how you yourself can improve. Whatever your gift or passion is, work to be the best you can be at it. Make a commitment to be confident in what you’re great at, and then be consistent and disciplined in mastering it.


Happy Monday y’all! I know most of you are off today for Fourth of July weekend. Me? I’m sitting at my 9-5……yup. But it’s cool. I’m still motivated and looking forward to having tomorrow off AND this chill day today since most people are off anyway!

This quote is definitely a major push for me as I start off this week. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to give up sometimes and just settle for the place where I am. Sometimes these rejection letters for new opportunities or no responses bring me down, and I want to be done. Sometimes I want to just lay back and do nothing after I get off of work. Sometimes I want to go the hell to sleep instead of pushing through and writing these posts. Life would be way more simple.

But as Solange Knowles sang on her track, “God Given Name,” I’ve got a dream to keep my eyes open. I’ve reached some pretty big milestones this year, and am looking forward to reaching more. But if I quit, I won’t get there. If I settle, I won’t ever know what could be. So I fight through my feelings and keep working. The only way you’ll succeed is if you keep trying, and it’s that “one more try” or “one more time” that will catapult you to success. So just give it one more try this week, okay?


It’s another Monday, and I’m actually really hype for this week ahead. Got to go into each week with the mindset of “New week, new opportunities!” Shake off your Monday blues with this week’s #MondayMotivation!

This powerful quote from the legendary Oprah Winfrey is a reminder that your thoughts truly do shape your future. This year, I’ve become a huge believer in this mantra: “Your thoughts determine your actions and, ultimately, your results.” If you think positive, you get positive. If you think negative, you get negative. What you dwell on is surely what you’re going to get, because your mindset is going to determine what actions you take or don’t take. Make it a point today to think positive, no matter what comes your way. 


All right y’all…it’s Monday again. I’m up and moving, and ready to crush this week! Hope you guys are too. Here’s some #MondayMotivation to inspire you today.

It’s simple. Tough times are going to come in your life, but it doesn’t last forever. It’s hard to see it in the moment, obviously, but the rain will eventually stop. Afterwards, you will become a stronger and better person, IF you don’t allow the hard times to make you yourself hard and bitter. I’m a living witness that the tough times make you tough, and ready to handle anything that comes your way! So if you’re going through right now, hang in there. It’s cliché to say, I know, but trouble don’t last always. Keep fighting IN SPITE OF IT.


Good morning all…another Monday, but I’m actually in a great mood this morning. Feeling optimistic about this week! This quote from the late legend Ella Fitzgerald is definitely helpful for me.

I’ve been getting a lot of great compliments about Imperfectly B, which I’m grateful for. Not because I need them to validate what I’m doing, but it’s just good to hear that my words are helping people in some way. That’s what I wanted all along. I’ll be honest. I still tend to doubt myself somewhat in this new direction. It’s not easy in the least bit. But, at the end of the day,  it’s so right. I feel so inspired and at peace every time I start to write here. It doesn’t feel like a chore. It just flows. I’ll make mistakes (I already have), but I feel like I’m on the right track overall with this site.

Listen. Wherever you have that same love and inspiration, that’s where you truly belong. Don’t give up because the road gets hard, or you don’t know if you can make it happen for yourself. Whatever you really want to do, go after it with everything you’ve got! You may hit some bumps in the road, and you’ll get some things wrong, but keep going anyway. Don’t stop trying.
