Are you looking to diversify the images on your blog? Here’s a list of high-quality free stock photos of people of color.
Some of the sites below require an email address to receive the photos, but I feel that’s an even trade. Other then that, I hope you enjoy!
Do you have plans for spring break yet?
It looks like I’m going to Michigan for a college visit with my oldest daughter for spring break this year.
Road trips aren’t on the top of my list of fun, but I do take them often, plus I love the uninterrupted time I get with my girls.
There’s no escape!
Do you have that one thing you want to accomplish in your life? You’ve tried, but you know you’re not going to be able to reach it on your own?
Actually, I have quite a few things that I could add to that list.
In 2017 I made a mental note to read more books?. When I completed a book I would scribble the name in a notebook. When I reflected on my year, I was glad that I read more, but I didn’t feel a sense of accomplishment.
Looking back, how could I feel successful? I didn’t set a goal to achieve, I was just flying by the seat of my pant. Since I wasn’t striving for anything there was nothing to celebrate. Since my whole blog is focused on goal-setting and completing goals. I figured a book reading list would be a great place to start this goal setting journey.
Like your children, each of my girls has various strengths. When I see one of their strengths shining through, I always remind them to use their powers for good and not evil. As a woman, you are an amazingly powerful creature! When it comes to others, especially your offspring, you can demonstrate unimaginable strength. You show strength in how you uplift, care for and love others. Yet, when it comes to yourself you don’t use your amazing powers for good. Instead, you take the passion from your strength and channel into causing severe damage to yourself.
I created this list in my early 30’s, and I decided to transfer it to a blog post so I can document my achievements. Looking at the list it’s amazing how much I’ve accomplished already. I wrote this list so long ago, it’s just reinforces the importance of setting goals. Since I didn’t blog along the way I will go back and write a blog post on the items I have already completed so I can share my journey with you. I will turn 40 in 3 years so I’m looking forward to seeing what I will accomplish in that time.
Anyone who knows me knows that I hate grocery shopping?. My trips include going to the store, thinking to myself “Why don’t I ever create a list”(or forgetting said list), strolling through the aisles trying to Pinterest recipes as I go, wondering why don’t I end this cycle. I know you’re thinking “Girl just plan”. Don’t know why, but it’s always been a struggle. Also, why is Walmart always redesigning? STOP MOVING THINGS ALREADY!! I digress.? So needless to say when Amazon Prime debuted I was the among the first to sign up!
Since Amazon Prime, several companies have jumped on board by also offering fast shipping at affordable prices. Which is a win-win for me, because I get to save time and money!
