Colourful Stripes

Challenges will come when things get hard but that does not always mean that you’re doing something wrong. Often it’s a sign that you are doing something right. Turn obstacles and challenges into your own successes. 

These last few years have been full of challenges and obstacles for me. However, when I was  growing up I was taught at a young age that no matter  what the obstacle is, you can overcome it if you work hard and pray. So, those words have always stuck to me anytime I was going through a hard time. 
I get a lot of people asking me how I juggle a demanding graduate program, a part time job, blogging and a personal business. I usually will answer by saying “if you are motivated enough, you shall find your own way”.

This “wiggle ASOS dress” was from two seasons ago. I was blessed enough to snag it from a friend who still had it in it’s original packaging.  The shape, the pattern and the colours were too captivating not to love it. I kept it simple by avoiding accessories.

    I agree with what you said about challenges, whenever I face them I just tell myself, your making progress. I loved this dress when it was trending and even now. Though I probably would have gone with a different pair of heels.Princess Audu

    My goodness, I didn't realize you were doing all of that at the same time! Can I ask what you're studying in graduate school?

    • SincerelyMissJ April 24, 2015 / 3:23 pm

      I'm doing a combined Master's program. It's a Master's in nursing and the Nurse practitioner certificate. It's really killing me slowly, however I have 4 months left so I just have to take a deep breath and do what I have to do!
