Waiting.. Listening .. Watching

These past weekends I’ve been doing something that I’ve always been afraid to do. I’ve been sitting still. It’s funny how the things that didn’t make a whole lot of sense when I was younger make sense now. I am a doer, always going, always moving. I always make the first move, I always make the plan, I’m always the matriarch. I never wanted to take a moment to just be, probably because In those moments you find out who is important to you and for you, and who is not.

My mom said to me once know who you are stop doing it all let people prove themselves to you.

Sometimes doing nothing is necessary. What is for you will find you. If you are important they will. I never forgot those words but I kept moving, I wonder if it’s because I was afraid of the truth.

Spending my weekends in has been refreshing it has given me a new perspective. It has also allowed me to plan for me. The hardest thing for me to do is nothing, however this certainly is a lesson I needed to learn. Lessons are learned only when you are ready. Nothing happens before it’s time. This is a simple note to say take care of you first.

I hope your weekend was amazing and you are ready to kick the door down in this short work week. Yay to three day work weeks🙌🏾

The New Chapter

Hi Guys:

It’s been forever and a day since my last post. Here’s a quick recap for the last few months.

I’ve had some Heath issues but they are under control now.

I’ve had some mom and son issues This is a work in progress.

I’ve been traveling a lot. This summer took me to Vegas, Chicago, Milwaukee, New Orleans. I just got back from my birthday trip to Maui.

My other happenings are, I signed with a modeling agency yay! Let’s see what this new venture brings I’m excited. I turned 52 last month can you believe it?!! I can’t.

Last but not least I would say go to my instagram page if you can’t find me but my page was hacked earlier this week so I’m rebuilding. Oh and I cut my hair. Stay tuned as I continue to live this crazy life of mine. My new Instagram page is @positively.denise follow along. This is where you can find daily updates. I hope you all are well 💋

Living

Hi Guys … no I have not run away. These last months have been tumultuous to say the least. I’ve been working a lot and just living my life. My most up to date activities are on Instagram so follow along @positivelydenise_

So now for the good stuff. I want to give the blog a facelift not sure what I want, that is idea is still in the processing stage. I’ve been in and out of town. I’ve seen Mary J Blige Nas and Janet Jackson in concert.

I haven’t been poolside because it’s just too damn hot in Arizona. I want a tan but I don’t want to be burnt to a crisp. However I will get some pool time in on one of my trips. Turning the big 52 this year, so excited.

I’m living my life and enjoying every second of it. I hope you’ve had some amazing moments this summer too.

This Is 51

I’ve literally had writers block for the last couple of months. I’ve written drafts and erased them. I then said screw it I don’t want to write just for the hell of it so I took a pause.

Sooooo what have I been up to well here goes. I’ve been living my life. The ups, the downs the frustrations, the joys. I’ve had some work challenges, some mom frustration moments. I’ve also had some life defining moments. I have been lucky enough to make new friends. I’ve been told that I am inspiring. I’m not afraid to own my authenticity.

At 51, I am living my truth and living it in full color. It is amazing to me how life gets richer when you decide to live on your terms and not someone else’s. Oh and I am determined to be that brand the represents bold unapologetic women who are slaying at any age. I firmly believe in speaking your success into existence. So thank you for your patience but I’m baaaaaccckkkk.

Happy Sunday friends💋

How life evolves..

We say speak it into existence. Do you remember when you wanted to be where you are now? I do. I remember when my goal was to be in management and I got there. I remember my first management job and that whole experience. I remember when I said I wanted to be an executive and I worked for it. My life has evolved into the thing that I spoke into existence. Sometimes I think wow what will the next chapter bring.

I started blogging five years ago for fun. I decided that I wanted to make it into something more so I started on that journey. I quickly realized that it can be so time consuming. However the same rules apply, hard work and perseverance . So here we are five years later and I finally see the fruits of my labor. So to all of you I say never give up. It will come.

Happy Weekend y’all💋

Aging with Style

We can’t avoid it even though we try to. We’re going to aging ya inevitable so we might as well accept it.

However what I refuse to do is behave like aim nor feeling my best when I am. So you realize that over fifty means a new chapter, your second act? It’s a chance to do things better, live well, be healthier and ai can go on and on.

I love the beach, the water l, and mostly I love vacations. I’m always looking for swimwear that looks and feels good. I started this swimwear series because so many of you have reached out to me to say thank you for being brave. For me part of not being ashamed of my body is acceptance. It is what it is cellulite and all and I embrace it. This led me to a light bulb my search to work with brands that cater to women of a certain age. So excited for my next collab and I can’t wait to share.

Please see these two swimsuits from adidas and jcrew. Gotta love when the clothes you wear dits just right.

Happy Monday Beauties!

I am Woman

I am so grateful to be able to tell my story my way. My inspiration is my mom who told me to never settle. She showed me that anything is possible. Society tell us to be pretty, be strong but not too strong. Don’t upstage just go along to get along.

I’m eternally grateful that from a little girl my mindset was different. I don’t back down. I solve problems, I find solutions. If there is no lane I make one. I hope I’m inspiring someone to shine as brightly as they possibly can. Live in your terms and break the glass ceiling. Who is better at juggling everything in the world and making it look easy. Everyday should be international women’s day. 🥂
