2016 👊🏾BECAUSE THIS WAS NEVER A GAME!!! 🏁 One of my clients told me the other day that, “There is a difference between taking clients and building a brand/business. She said “Whitney, look at what you’ve BUILT!” 🙏🏾😭 Man that hit me so deep ya’ll don’t even understand. 🙇🏾♀️ I’m constantly going so it’s hard for me to look back sometimes and realize all that I’ve done because I have so much more to do and I feel like I haven’t even started yet In the grand scheme of things. After all of the hard work I put in I’m just warming up I promise!!! This has not been overnight and nothing has been given!!! Everything has been EARNED!!! Everything has a price, and what what I’m doing has always WORTH IT to me. I’ve been booked and busy for a few years now and opening the salon was definitely a labor of love along with everything else I’m doing. If you have a gift there’s no need to be selfish, share it and watch your blessings multiply. I’m just doing what I LOVE and God is making sure that I never have to struggle again. PERIOD. This is way more complex than hair I’m dedicated to changing lives and encouraging others grow with me! 🌱 ✍🏾 Signed Sincerely, Whitney aka @the_growth_guru
The reason why strong and smart women would never bow down to a man is that they’re not afraid of being alone. sometimes the only person they need to fight for, focus on, and trust is themselves.
They’ve been through so many things in life to finally understand that their happiness and peace of mind depend only on themselves.
Undoubtedly, it’s way easier to think or talk about being a strong woman than to actually be one.
Because it takes strong will and courage to stand up for yourself and fight for what you deserve.
Por mucho tiempo ser mujer fue símbolo de debilidad, de vulnerabilidad, de delicadeza, hoy reclamamos que somos mucho más, somos fuerza, somos inteligencia, somos compasión, somos excepcionales, somos madres, somos trabajadoras, somos profesionales, SOMOS LO QUE QUEREMOS SER. “Se Vale Ser Mujer”
If loneliness had a colour, it would probably be a weary grey
I tell you one night when were trying to find solace in a bottle of hard liquor While you fidget with her hairpin, i look at it , rueful from dull numbness it made me feel
My mother had left home again that evening with her guitar and a half packed suitcase
There was a finality in the way she said she couldn't do this anymore
And i ask you in between sobs if i am that hard to love
You stroke my hair and whisper words i can barely hear
If you had a colour it would probably be yellow,
Like the soft muted tone
I was this close to saying this to you that night, closer than I've ever been
Closer than I'll ever be
But the silence loomed over us,too loud,ready to strike if I let my guard down
If my life were a vignette, our stories would be the fading corners -undiscovered, concealed
The blissful fleeting thought ridicules my sombre reality
I drown again in my grey ocean, you don't reach out,neither do i ask you to
If my world had a colour, I would have given it your name,i suppose
But we are fast running out of time ,
So I let it go, i let you be
As we part ways I don't look back,
I wouldn't be able to look away if I do
I know I'll think of you again on days when i can't stand it,
But not now, not today when i know we are doomed
I choose to walk away
I know you would, too.

Loving oneself isn't hard, when you understand who and what "yourself" is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It's so beyond all of those things and it's what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure.
. . .
Be your own inspiration and goals. Hoping to get back to somewhere near this strength and shape. Upper body strength is okay at the moment but the pull-ups are a no go 😂
. . .
Lack of an assisted pull-up machine at the new gym has meant banded pull ups which are harder than I remember 😬 so working on strengthening my lats, biceps and posterior delts through other training methods.
. . .
But as ever practice makes perfect 😂
