Blooming Sunshine was created to motivate and inspire girls to become their best. I believe that every girl is beautiful, and I want to extend an invitation to every girl who reads this to open up like a flower, bloom, and share their greatness and gifts. That’s what my blog is all about. Spreading sunshine for your teenage journey. The kind of sunshine that makes you bloom.
Growing up, I was blessed to be surrounded by people who constantly encouraged me to bloom, especially my Mother (shout out, love you Mama). Although they and others around me saw greatness in me, I didn’t really see it for myself, and whenever I did see it I tried to hide it. I didn’t know how much potential I had, how special I was, and how much of a difference I could make in this world – even while I was still young. Like so many other girls, I let bad influences and hard times shape so much of who I was, which also stopped me from fully living my life, and it didn’t have to be that way. It doesn’t have to be that way for you either *wink*.
Now that I’m a full grown 30 something year old woman (no need to be exact here) I’m still striving to be my best and bloom every day. I’m learning that it’s a lifelong process. I have mentored girls personally (including my awesome God-daughter and my fabulous niece) and other amazing girls throughout the years. I’ve also mentored students professionally as a part of my career, and it’s been just as much as a blessing to me as I believe it is to them. In my everyday life, whether personally or on my job, I meet so many brilliant girls who have much to offer, and I want them all to realize how beautiful and gifted they are, so that they can bloom and impact the world.
So, I’m glad you came, and while you’re here I hope you find something that inspires you.
Other that what you just read up there, I’m a simple woman who can become complicated if you don’t let me sleep but…I can be tamed with chocolate, or anything sweet for that matter. Jesus has my heart, and I absolutely LOVE to laugh, spend time with my family, and listen to music (music is LIFE!!!!).
