You can’t just look at me and see the many things that I’ve been through. I’ve worked tirelessly and with much success to overcome the things that would and has caused many people to suffer with depression, anxiety, drug abuse, suicidal thoughts, and many times suicide. I commited myself to finding comfort and healing even in the mist of my many storms. I’ve shared my lifes story before but here are (some) of my life experiences that weren’t so pleasant; I had a parent with an addiction, I’ve been a victim of molestation, attempted rape by a friend, childhood home destroyed by fire at the age of 16, loss of my pregnancy, identity theft, emotional abuse in a relationship, loss of a sibling to suicide, the passing of one of my best friends and I was even electrocuted by a live wire at the tender age of three years old (permanently scarred on both hands). These things have truly molded me into the person I fought and chose to be today. But there is one thing that has nudged at my being since as long as I can remember. One thing that I cannot get over out of all of the many HORRIFIC experiences I’ve encountered.
It is the fact that I have never had or seen a baby picture of myself. This is something that eats at me and leaves me with a yearning to create memories with a child of my own. I don’t know why this is the situation that causes such unrest. Maybe its the not knowing what I looked like in the very beginning that creates an unsettling feeling. Even some adopted children have baby pictures. I know that there are maybe millions of others who don’t have their baby pictures but I often wonder, What went wrong? Where is the hospital photo? I had both parents, a healthy birth but no pictures. Maybe one day I will not feel so incomplete without this. Maybe I will find one, or maybe GOD needed me to be exactly who I am by seeing the BIGGER PICTURE.
I want a LOVE where there are no Ultimatums only two people who freely make the decision to make each other a priority in life and in love.
I want a LOVE where we talk about our plans for the future (NO PRESSURE) because we already talk about our YESTERDAY and TODAY.
I want a LOVE that is filled with gratitude, satisfaction, health, fun, well-being and smooth sailing.
I want a LOVE that at the times when we are confronted with unforeseen surprises or unexpected storms, that our LOVE allows us to look Forward because uncharted waters can also lead to treasures.

I believe that you can have Everything that you want. You can have your dream CAREER, you can have the most amazing RELATIONSHIP, A FAMILY, take care of your CHILDREN, you can have great FRIENDS, you can have a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, and you can have HAPPINESS INSIDE.
You wanna know HOW??
All you have to do is WORK on each one of these things EVERY SINGLE DAY with PURPOSE & PASSION. MAKE IT A PRIORITY, AND I GUARANTEE YOU WILL FORGET ALL THE THINGS YOU DON’T HAVE BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO BUSY SMILING AND APPRECIATING THE THINGS YOU DO HAVE AND WANT.
Trap Yoga Montgomery is OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT. Yes I know that I live in ATLANTA but I told myself that I will always bring the latest trends back to Alabama.
But what’s Trap Yoga? Trap yoga is yoga done to Trap music to keep it simple. But the instructor can switch it up as he or she pleases.
No matter how my life has constantly changed over the years one thing has remained consistent and that is my love for teaching and childcare. For many years I was in the daycare and School system because it made my heart feel good. It wasn’t a lot of money but I was compensated with love, so I got paid.
I was a Nanny in the past with the perfect family (meaning quirky and crazy) and it was an amazing experience. I traveled to islands and did things I’ve never done. When that ended I decided to pursue my other passion (Events, business, art, poetry, music 🤣) So with so many things rushing through my head, a light bulb turned on.
Why not make a business out of Both? So I do both (This is about Nannying)
I’M a Nanny but I’m a Nanny my way. I meet client’s they tell me what they need, I give them a consultation and we make a deal. But its much more than that. I come in my meetings transparent, fully open, ready to love someone else’s child, someone else’s family and that’s it.
I get paid a lot of money because now I have ownership of it. But I still get compensated with love.
SHARING MOMENT: Be your authentic self. Since I moved to Atlanta, I’ve began sharing What I love, Who I love and Why I love with potential clients, Why?
Because if I’m going to do business with you I am gonna have to be my authentic self to do my best. I’m NOT TRYING TO SEPARATE MY LIFE, I’M BLENDING IT, so you will know the person, people and things I love from the GATE. That way there is no confusion. That way conversation can flow smoothly.
✔It’s a constant reminder of what’s important to me
✔It has increased my clientele
✔No awkward moments if the business meets personal
✔When you love what you do, you include who you love
✔You get more authentic business contacts
I don’t want to have to BALANCE my life because one thing can throw off balance. I want to have a BLENDED life, where everything works together.
This ain’t no love poem, just a bunch of words that seem to mesh like lyrics from a melody. A melody that I play over and over. But this ain’t no love poem, it’s just my fingers on the canvas of your heart trying to match the beat. But this ain’t no love poem, it’s just feelings on paper written in ink, With my best pen… but this ain’t no love poem cause It don’t rhyme
And rhyming makes the rhythm feel dope so this ain’t no love poem, cause you don’t express love in words for fear of hearing yourself. You’d rather let actions speak louder but for me words are their purest when sound becomes their partner
But this ain’t no love poem,
This is all the things a Love Poem ain’t
