Creating Your Own Lane!!!!

Creating Your Own Lane!!!!

Sometimes life gets demanding as one gets older. Your views change, people change, & your circumstances evolve. For me the challenge has been how do l make life happen the way l envision it & still be open to the inevitable changes. For me it’s been ever-changing. The main lesson l continue to learn from life is to stay in motion even if it hurts. l remember being in college as a freshman signing up for spring semester and then calling home to find out my father had died that morning. My family had been trying to get a hold of me, but l had my phone on vibrate because l was in class that morning. Here it was something tragic had happened at the same time, as l was signing up for my adulthood future. l’ll go into further detail later this month as it marks my father’s 10 Year Anniversary of him relaxing in heaven. I said all of that to say, l had to keep moving even when l cried my eyes out. I had to get in the mind frame that l had something bigger to complete and that if l gave too much energy into my father’s death. I too would be defeated, full of regrets, & not able to enjoy life as it was intended for me.

We all are put on earth to do great works, so wasting ones talent to appease your family, friends, or whomever else is a faux pas. Every day is a new day to try something new, give way to a new idea, try some new food, create a new positive habit, etc. Right now life is moving me into my place in the Mogul World. I’m throwing an event on October 18th, 2014 called “l Got $5 On lt” this the first event l’ve put together and there is a lot of work involved. I have much respect for event planners and having this kind of stress is not for the weak. I’m still finishing up a few things, but am so glad l started planning this early. Word to the wise, EARLY PLANNING= A HAPPIER YOU! l started doing meetings back in August and then got some dates in mind & the rest flowed from there. l’ll be doing a post about the event once it’s over, so don’t worry Starrahs, y’all will be in the loop.

l want you all to know that if you want to be successful than you’ve got to roll with the changes. For years l did events for other people or threw my own touch to someone else’s party. Now l am ready to take the risks and see how l can add my spin on things from beginning to end. I wanted my brand to grow and here a created opportunity to do so. I cannot wait to announce some of the other projects I am doing in the coming months. All I can say is my voice is being heard and the right people are taking notice. The best part about these experiences is not the material or monetary gain; it’s about building an ongoing business relationship that’ll create a new lane for other STARRAHS to follow. Someone gave me a start because they saw potential in where l am going. Now l am using my potential and help other’s brands grow, which in turn will help me evolve too.

Starrahs Don’t Be Afraid To Help Someone Else You Might Create Your Lane After all!

Motivation For All Starrahs!!!

Motivation For All Starrahs!!!

There comes a time in one’s life when decisions have to be made. For example, most of us know when our bodies smell not so fresh; it’s time for a shower. That seems like an easy tasks, but can the same be said for our lives. Another example, we’ve got people in our circle that aren’t in the best interest to be around, yet we still keep them and call them “friends.” Now why is it so easy for us to clean our bodies, but not our inner being? I began wondering that question myself. On the outside it seems as though I have it all, but the reality is I have room for improvement. I’ve been going through ripples in my life this year and things haven’t been as easy-going for me, as it was in 2012. What I’ve come to learn is we all have to know it will work out in the end. Even when we can’t see our lives getting better, richer, & more complete, eventually things will.

I wish I had the answer as to when that’ll happen. When will I wake up in the morning & not have to worry about how I’m dressed how I’ll pay the rent, or what’s for dinner? When will I have my personal chef cooking a few good meals for me & my crew, my private plane, & tv show generating revenue? Each day I try to remember that troubles don’t last always. What I did to overcome those obstacles will stick with me forever. I had to learn to smile at times when failure was an option. I had to learn to laugh when tragedy struck & there was nothing I could do, but show support. I had to cry when my finances weren’t taken care of. Now in my life I am thankful that everything hasn’t settled for me yet & loving what is God has given to me.

He’s given me my 5 senses:

Smell: To engulf my nose into delicious foods. A true Foodie Indeed.

Sight: To see when others aren’t true to themselves or me. Don’t allow passes of toxicity to pass by & do nothing about it.

Taste: To know that VICTORY comes in phases, so try not to become distasteful.

Hear: Truly listen to the real intentions of what someone is saying & not just hearing the conversation on the surface. People reveal a lot of themselves through words.

Touch: Never be afraid to travel the world & feel the delicacies of life. I am a creator & will be a part of something bigger than myself, which will LIVE BEYOND MY EXISTENCE.
I’m not where I deserve to be yet, each year I figure out ways to get myself there. Know that I’m always taking action & being proactive in some form of my life. I don’t know how to SETTLE, grateful for that character trait indeed.

Starrahs Stay Encouraged & Blessed!
