Refreshed.

Hello God’s greatest creations,

Today has been such an overwhelming but really refreshing day! I’ve been working and finishing up the final touches on my website! I don’t quite think it’s ready to be launched just yet, I’m messing around with different templates and spicing up my header image! I’m one of those people who like something one day and the next day I completely hate it! I think I’m getting better but sometimes it’s hard wanting to make sure things are perfect before you actually display it to others! 

Let’s rewind back to this morning…

This morning started off a little rocky, not too rocky but if I had to rate my level of irritation, I would put it at a 6/10. Not only did I wake up late for work, I didn’t stop at Starbucks or pray this morning! When I don’t pray in morning before I start my day, it just throws my day off! I felt so backwards and just blah… I just wasn’t feeling this morning from 7:30 am to about 9:30 am! But… luckily I was able to pray, grab some coffee and end my day on a really great note! Which made me feel even 10x better.

I’m just grateful that during my season of exposure, I learned the importance of not dwelling on things for too long and just letting go and giving it straight to God! I could’ve allowed me waking up late dictate my whole day, but I didn’t! I guess I just want to let you all know that, just because you started your day late or on the wrong note, it doesn’t mean your day has to end that way! Also… If you don’t like the way you feel, change it! 

Quick reflection/rant…

Today I was just thinking about how life is truly amazing and how we should never take it for granted! It doesn’t matter if you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, you forget your coffee or whatever the case might be, there’s someone that didn’t get to see today and just knowing how blessed you’re because you was able to make it to see another day, makes life even more precious and it should always be cherished!

So I decided to write myself a little note, nothing fancy but a little reminder that as long as I have air in my lungs, I should always be grateful and express my gratitude to God because I didn’t have to be here today! I just think that it’s nothing in life that’s ever worth me feeling unappreciative, especially when I decided to snooze my alarm and wake up late! These are choices we make each and everyday! I didn’t have to snooze my alarm, but I did and ended up blaming everything else, but myself! 

This is where accountability comes into play when it comes to our lives and the choices we make, you can’t blame anything or anyone for why you decided to snooze your alarm and not get up when it decided to ring the first time! We all have choices and sometimes a little extra sleep might cause us to miss out on a blessing! It could’ve been something little or it could’ve been something big, but you wouldn’t know because you didn’t get up the first time around! 

But anywho….

I guess I’m just trying to say that everyday isn’t going to be sunshine and roses, but you don’t have to let the whole day be darkness! I also think that you can let things like this make you bitter or better! You have to decide whether it’s going to be a stepping stone or a stumbling block! Are you going to let you waking up late, dictate your day or is you going to push forward and make your day amazing? 

You also have to be mindful that it doesn’t matter how you feel, time isn’t going to wait on anyone! The day is going to continue on moving forward and you’re going to have to move forward as well! But your attitude is going to either make or break you! ❤️

Hello beautiful souls, I'm Takeia Cage, and I'm the CEO/Founder of Unashamed Queens! I'm an advocate, momtrepreneur, life coach, and motivational blogger. I have always been dedicated to helping women re-discover their light, while walking in their truth, unashamed! It wasn’t until I was in my early twenties, when I discovered my calling to be an advocate for the women in my community. I have always wanted to be apart of a sisterhood that supported, uplifted, and celebrated women without us feeling judged or even ashamed of our journey. There wasn’t many women empowerment groups in my community that actually focused on celebrating queens, so I decided to create my own community for unashamed women. Now I am the founder of Unashamed Queens, a women’s empowerment group that focuses on supporting, uplifitng, and celebrating queenhood. I would always tell myself years ago that you can’t help anyone if you can’t help yourself, and today I believe that statement is so untrue. It wasn’t until I was re-discovering my own light, that I wanted to also encourage/help other women to re-discover theirs as well. I truly believe that we’re all stronger together, and that creating a safe-space for women to feel support and loved through sisterhood.
