Electric Literature launched 10 years ago in Brooklyn, New York, as a quarterly print journal with a mission to make literature more relevant, exciting, and inclusive. And today they’re celebrating the launch of a new website on WordPress, at electricliterature.com. Surviving (and thriving) for ten years as an independent publisher is no small feat. Over …
While everyone is all geared up to show Love to others, I’m geared up to show EXTRA Love to myself. Why? An even better question is, “Why not?”
You are the determining factor of how 2019 turns out. Not your job, not your bank account, not what you wear, not where you live. You – the sole person inhabiting your body – determines your year.
Hey, Rockstarrs! We are a week into the new year. How are you holding up? Are you still rooted in your desire to make this the best year ever, or are you starting to wax and wane from your intentions? It’s okay, this is the equivalent of having ebb and flow. There will be times …
We did it, Rockstarrs! We made it through another year. How you view this year matters not. It’s over and done with. Focus on your NOW so that your future now is amazing, awesome, and abundant! This year, I was able to read 32 books! Most were audio books, as I’m always on the go, …
Happy Thanksgiving, Rockstars! This year has been a of action, feelings, and emotions for me. It’s the year that I stepped out on faith as an entrepreneur. It’s the year that I decided to reclaim my life, my career, and my future. It’s the year I invested in me multiple times over. It’s the year …
God loves to drop gorgeous gems in my way every now and again. Sometimes, these gems are dropped more than once. Gems that I once thought were lost for good, God has allowed me to find again!
We have five FULL MONTHS (depending on when you’re reading this) to make life happen. I’ve said before that I don’t to “resolutions.” I’m more of a goal setter. Now, after the past quarter, I’m not even focused on goals.

It’s all about the outcomes, baby! (Remix!)
That’s what really matters. It’s not the process we need to focus on, it’s the results. There are a plethora of ways, means, and paths to end up with the same outcome. So, really, does it matter if plan A turns out to flop…when there’s a plan B, C, D, and E?
No. No it does not.
Then, what does it mean? It means you are still in the game! It means you can still achieve your desired outcome. Remember, we’re focused on the RESULTS…not the process. That can change. That will change. It’s almost inevitable that life – in all her mysterious ways – will throw all kinds of rocks, wrenches, and tree trunks in your way. This will certainly throw off your process. However, it doesn’t have to throw off your focus, your drive, nor your outcomes.
In a nutshell, there are many ways to get to your intended destination. The title, the process, the label – none of this matters. What matters is you know where you are, know where you’ve been (even if it’s just to ensure you never go there again!), and – most importantly – know where you’re going!
That’s it, Rockstarrs!
Five WHOLE months!
Remember why you started. Refocus on your commitment. Rejoice once you’ve reached your outcome.
Like Ciara said, it’s time to #levelup!
Rockstarrs!!! I’ve missed you all! Let me tell you this first half of the year has been a whirlwind of change. Hence the reason for my not-nearly-planned hiatus. I will spare you the details of what 6 months of change can do to a person, but I do want to inspire you in a few …
Hey Rockstarrs! I know…I know…here she go again! LOL! Honey, listen! Sometimes you have to step back and take care of YOU! That’s what I’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks and will continue to do until 1/1/2018. This is my season to be still, be silent, and re-calibrate myself and my goals! …
