It is easy to look at life situations and take on the attitude, "It is what it is." This attitude causes us to become complacent. The fear that dwells within causing us to believe complacency is acceptable. Also, it is a scary thought to take a leap of faith and believe we will land on our feet. However, I am just crazy to believe if I jump fully prepared, I will be prepared for the fall (the coming up to destiny).
I also believe an individual's environment and support system play in a key role in success. Many times, we do what we see others do and follow their path. I believe at some point (I stress these are my opinions), an individual has to say, " I want more!" We have all been given a measure of talent. We were given talents to be used. Those gifts and talents will make room for us (if we break out of fear). WE HAVE TO USE (WORK) THOSE GIFTS. Our gifts give us the ability to make a difference and live a desirable life.
It is my desire for the young ladies I work with to say "Bye bye fear. Bye bye circumstances. Hello Life- I am the creator of my destiny. I have the power within to live the life I desire. I was born with a purpose to do great things and to walk in my GLAM."
A Made Life

Everyday, I wake up asking myself, "What else can I do to support the mission of Made 2 Glam, Inc.? " I am passionate about this work and want the ladies in the program to know it is my desire for them to beat every statistic that reads they will have a defeated life.
