🚨Beware of Selfish Ambition...
We all possess some degree of selfishness...Can you just love on people genuinely without thinking of what you can gain? "Try instead to think of what you can give". My lifecoach has taught me that when you genuinely enter a relationship (personal, business, etc) looking at how YOU can better it, knowing what your value added proposition is aka- What do you bring to the table? You will reap more benefits from your motives when you give first. It's a Karma principle, a reap sow principle and you unlock all things heavenly on earth when you are in obedience and alignment. Intention and motives are everything! Check yours. (Info credit above: Coaching course @cindytrimm)
The important thing is to acknowledge it and let others know of your intentions. People will be more understanding if you reveal it rather than hide it. 🙈
If you feel strong enough to mirror God's ways, change your direction by giving time and money to those less fortunate than yourself.
If you don't feel strong enough, ask God for the strength. 💪🏼 If you are wise and understand God's ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don't cover up the truth with boasting and lying. (NLT) ( James 3:13-14 )

Tips for new moms: Part II
7. Get a good stroller that fits through double doors. Like the Baby Jogger City Mini Double Stroller. It’s your ticket out of the house. If it’s possible, go for lots of walks outdoors. It’s good for you and your babies.
8.Hire a mother’s helper. Find a responsible middle-schooler or high-schooler who wants to get some babysitting experience to come over and help you after school a few days a week. Ask around your neighborhood and see if there are any young people in your area who could help out. They can help you watch the babies while you get things done in the house. They like helping because they get babysitting experience, and make a little money. And frankly, sometimes it’s nice to have the company.
9.You will be surprised at who will help you. I was fortunate because a lot of my friends and family helped us out during the first few months we had the boys at home.
Still not over this #Amur dress and these #OscardelaRenta earrings worn for my aunt and uncle's vow renewal 😍 and how beautiful is that #NewYork skyline? 🏙 I've got some more beautiful NYC pics to share before I can show you my new backyard. 🌴
262/365 “Sometimes, things don’t happen the way we planned and wanted it to be. Sometimes they happen with no valid explanation. And sometimes our choices and decisions bring out the worst in us. But despite these things, never let yourself run out of positivity. Try to see the good in everything especially the one within you. If you think you’ve done something wrong, forgive yourself. You’re human and that means you’re capable of committing mistakes. You see, the only person that blocks the way towards what’s ahead of you is none other than yourself.”
-via juanlucio //#tb ootd from yesterday! today, I wasn't sure what I wanted for dinner so I went to the school's grocery store to buy a cup of fruit. after I got home, I checked the price and apparently I spent $5 on this tiny af cup of tropical fruit??? kind of feel cheated but it's in the past now 😂. What's the most money you've paid for the smallest portion of food? (I once paid $15 for a slice of avocado toast... never again 😤)// lace top: @hm/ tank: Taiwan/ skirt: @americanapparelusa/ slip-on mules: @forever21/ bag: @rebeccaminkoff.
Happy Hump Day!🐪// Are bathroom selfies acceptable if you're having a good hair day? Hope so because I couldn't help myself after giving my locks some much needed attention + love (which was long overdue) 💆🏻✂️ // speaking of needing attention -- this jean jacket! You guys, I wear this thing practically every other day + it's on sale @oldnavy (along with my dress). So if you don't have your denim ready for fall, I suggest you look into it! It'll be the best decision you make this week. 😉For size reference, I'm sporting a small.
