2018 Love and Gratitude

As the year is coming to a close, I want to make a post thanking some people who have really made a difference in my life. Those that have truly touched my heart during this year.


Donna :



Meeting you, was definitely a highlight, of my year. From the moment we met, it seemed, we had known each other, all of our lives. This lovely woman, is my twin. We enjoy nearly all of the same things; from having the same favorite movie, (one from Old Hollywood), to eating creamsicles, late at night. We share the same sense of humor, and seriously need to entertain the idea of doing a podcast together. I'm not sure the world is ready for us : P



Janae :


Us meeting was divine intervention. The limited time we spent together, this past winter, was extremely meaningful to me. This woman is a literal angel...the sweetest soul you'll ever meet, with the purest heart. It's virtually impossible to be sad in Janae's presence; she's a ray of sunshine. I saw her in LA, in October, and had tears of happiness rolling down my face. I thank G-d, you have been brought into my life, and look forward to our future adventures together.


Patricia :


My sweet doll, Patricia...We met five years ago. Where does the time go? I'll never forget the outpouring of love you showed me. Patricia and I met at a business and networking conference. Near the end of the week, she approached me, took my hands into hers, and we shared the most beautiful conversation...about my value in this world and the mark I would make. We've kept in contact over the years, but this year, we reconnected; it's meant so much to me. Patricia and Scot, her husband, are truly family. I'm grateful for their love and constant prayers.



Nathalie :


We all need a friend that is the voice of reason...that's my Nats! We met at a spiritual convergence, a year ago, and have remained close. She's the voice I hear, when I start to second guess myself. She frequently will call and send me sweet texts, letting me know, she's thinking about me. Nathalie is such a beautiful, creative soul; she truly enriches my life. 

Gina :




Gina, my love! We have been "friends" for a couple of years, but got really close this year. We instantly hit it off and our souls just knew one another. Our goals and paths are very similar and I just feel so much love and gratitude for this girl! It was no coincidence that we came into each others lives and I know that we're in it together, for the long haul...We're going to change the world, girlie!



Tehrah :



My "Momma T" has been my biggest blessing of 2018; I'm unable to formulate the proper words. Both of us, have been on quite the journey, the past few years. During the past year, we have shared and experienced so much. I'm truly blessed to have had her by my side. Tehrah has imparted wisdom, from her life experiences, supported me in my personal growth, and shown me an abundance of love... sometimes tough love... but I know, she always has my best interest at heart. 

Many of my newer friendships, stem from other beautiful people, in my life. I am truly grateful to have so many wonderful friends. The year 2018, has brought me a few new angels, and has solidified many of my existing relationships. So, a thank you to all of my other lovely friends. I love you! <3 

What are three things you are grateful for? P.S. Stay tuned for my first giveaway!

  5. Meet Lauren, my honest and genuine Christ-like soul friend. She came into my life upon arriving in Austin, after my special mission in Haiti this year. We had so much fun together with my adorbs sissie, Tehrah. Such a blessing!!! Lauren's eagerness to learn, accept and give like a wise sage does!? It's contagious. She accepts and honors her angels here on earth and in heaven, then 😍 pays it forward any way she can. Thank you Lauren, for being authentic love for yourself and others and a living example of one of my favorite quotes, "Accept what is, come what may and love it." A leader, student and teacher of peace and joy everywhere you go. I am so grateful for you and yes, yes, yes...We ain't seen nothin yet. Happy holidays and wishes for the best New Year yet. Love and light always,πŸ’œπŸ’ͺJaNae
