First, I would like to apologize for not being present with blogging lately. The transition has been REAL. Some days I don’t feel as motivated since I moved back to NW Indiana. I feel like should’ve pushed myself a little more. It seems like my drive is fading away. Let me explain, when I lived out of state I had to make sh*t happen. I was proud to have my own & not have to depend or justify myself to anyone. I’m going to keep it real I didn’t have much. My apartment wasn’t decked out with furniture. It wasn’t in the best area either. But God KEPT me. 🙏🏽 Sometimes I spent late nights at the a laundromat, just to wash my uniforms. It was a struggle but blogging was my outlet . I’m finding it hard now to put out blogs consistently …

I’m not giving the devil the satisfaction. I rebuke depression & failure.. I’m constantly praying every day for strength to keep going. I’m just grateful for the experience. I’m not the same person anymore. I do what’s best for ME. Most importantly, I don’t have pity parties anymore. That’s growth… 🌱 When your environment is uncomfortable, it’s so easy to focus on the negative things. Just Keep moving forward! ♥️

It’s not the end of the world. Whatever your going through, just remember it’s not as bad as you think. God can move mountains! TRUST & BELIEVE. #ihearyou💕 — Lauren Denise

    Yes ! Your growth in very important. Spiritually, mentally, and physically. Sometimes a change which might seem like a set back can be disappointing and discouraging, but it’s only a process. God sometimes will send you back to certain places to make you realize some things about yourself in order for you to grow the way HE wants you to grow. Your success is on its way. Once heard a preacher say “ your success in inevitable”.

    Your transparency will help many others going through the same obstacles. Recognizing your moments of growth is your daily reminder that you are heading down the right path. Go girl! 💞

    Hey Lauren it’s me Diamond, I wanted to let you know how proud of I am even if you can’t see it because most people wouldn’t had the courage to do that big move to ATL like you I know I wouldn’t and for you to be sharing all the things you go through daily really help people like me get through situations I didn’t think I can get through, since we been friends I’ve seen you blossom into this great independent women that keep going even when things get rough, I believe this is a beautiful tool your using with your blog sharing the life problems you go through rather they bad or good you encourage people to keep going. One thing I want you to remember is god takes us through the storm before he bring us to the sunshine, before you know it you will be where you want in life, everything will fall in place just the way you want it. Keep pushing, keep doing your thing, keep faith, keep believing in yourself, keep being great. Love you girl

    – Diamond 😊
