It’s September All Ready Sheesh…


Man where has the year gone…it seems like this year has flown by.  So much has happened and I am still processing it all everyday.  But life is pretty dang good these days and I am just living one day at a time.

Now lets get to September, as I told you at the beginning of August, at the beginning of the year I titled my months because I wanted to live on purpose and be consistent in 2016.  My word for the year is Consistent and the word for September is Intentional.  When I started naming them I wasn’t strategic in naming them I just knew what words I wanted to live by during this year and implement into my life.

As I sat in my car trying to figure out what I wanted to be intentional about and how I was going to get it across to you all, my faithful few. I came up with nothing 😳.  But as fate would have it I had to take my braids out that same night and instead of watching one of my favorite shows “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” as I always do on Friday nights, I decided to get on YouTube and try to get some direction and wisdom.  I came across a video of Oprah Winfrey giving an empowerment talk at the 2016 Essence Festival. One of the main points that she drove home was that there came a time in her life that she decided to be intentional in every aspect of her life.

Now I was about to figure out what to change the word to if I couldn’t figure out how to explain and use this word for September and then it clicked while I was in the shower.  I have to start being more intentional with myself, with my time, with my space, with God, with prayer, with my family, with my finances, with my business, with my love, and with my life completely.  Although I have been accomplishing a lot of my goals this year, I’ve kind of just been flowing with the waves of life lately.  So September is the month to be more intentional – with you and everything that you want around you.

Goals for September:

  • Be intentional in scheduling my days.
  • Be intentional with my Bible study time.
  • Be intentional with branding and building Simply My Purpose.
  • Be intentional in building different streams of income.

August Is Gone

It’s the last day of August and I was thinking about all that has happened this month and it kind of feels like I got nothing accomplished however I am sure that I did. I know one of my main focuses this month was to get some major bills or things paid off and yea Lord I had to pay out a lot of money this month ugh operation re-up is in full effect lol. September I will be working on these streams of income in a major way. But I am blessed that I was able to get those things paid without a major hit to anything. 

 As far as Simply My Purpose, I feel like I’m scrambling to put posts together for the month because I haven’t had any time to do anything. This month was super busy and I lost focus. I will be regaining that focus back as of right now though. So the focus will be real and intentional in September and for the rest of the year. 

August was about me being faithful with everything and exercising my faith in all areas of my life. Well you know I’m human so I’m still trying to figure some areas out but I am definitely still praying about these things and getting it together … It was actually a blessing because as I’ve said before I named my months and everything that I’ve dealt with this month has lead to me depending on my faith and trusting more than ever. It just amazes me how everything falls into place. I know I’ve said it before and I will definitely say it again but God is super dope and I wouldn’t trade Him for anything in this world. 
August was a great and busy month. Oh one major highlight of the month is dedicated to one of my best friends. She’s married now… Tasha of finally got married. I always told her she would get married before me even though she was adamant about not ever getting married. Look at God… Want He do it!!! Lol just for her. 

I think that is all for now, I’m looking forward to diving into September and making things happen. Only 4 more months to knock down these doors, accomplish these goals, and get ready for 2017. I’m still believing for some miracles and doors to open and my faith is building more and more everyday. I hope that you all had a wonderful August. Write back and let me know how your month went. 


Words of Purpose


I don’t know how much more I can stress that patience is the key to getting where you want to go.  Anything worth having and keeping isn’t going to happen over night.  One thing I don’t pray for is patience because I know that it is already going to be tested so why ask for extra test (I am not about that life) but one thing that I am grateful is the amount of patience that I already have.  It is definitely being tested these days but I understand why and I am just praying that I pass.

Words of Purpose


When you think that you have hit a brick wall that is when your faith should kick in in full strength,  God is watching your every move and is ready to help you conquer whatever you are going after.  So don’t give up when you don’t see another way know that God is preparing and working it out.  Keep pushing and stay faithful in your walk.

Words of Purpose


I was talking to one of my best friends this past week and I was telling her that I have no clue what my comfort zone is anymore.  God has stirred all of them completely out of me.  I am not comfortable with anything going on in my life and it isn’t a bad thing it’s a growth and a faith thing.  Right now I am trusting in Him to do whatever He is going to do and I am always on my toes waiting for the next thing whatever it is.  Be prepared to be stretched and used for the season you are in may not be where you want to be but it is where you need to be for the next season of your life.

Words of Purpose


Worry gets you know where.  There is no where to go with worry.  It doesn’t add to your life but it definitely takes away time, attention, focus, and so many other things.  So pray about it and let it go.  I needed this one for myself today.
