The Fall Blues

posted on: Thursday, October 13, 2011

I was very excited to premier this look on www.blackfashion.tumblr.com. I would love to sincerely thank Javanell for the feature. You can see the interview I did HERE as well as a few additional photos.

Whenever I have time to myself, one thing I really enjoy doing is reading anything Inspirational/Motivational. Whether it be lyrics to a song, quotes, poems or a book, I always tend to feel rejuvenated whenever I read words of wisdom. I came across this poem titled "Promise Yourself" and I believe that it's something that many of us should live by ;) 
IMG_9087
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can
disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to 
every person you meet.IMG_9030
To make all your friends feel like there is
something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your 
optimism come true.IMG_9026
To think only of the best, to work only for the best,
and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others 
as you are about your own.

IMG_9091
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the
greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give
every living person you meet a smile.

IMG_9057
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.

IMG_9052
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too
strong for fear, and too happy to permit the
presence of trouble.
