To all my single ladies.
First let me assure you that there is nothing wrong with you. Being single is
a sign of strength. Blessed is she who is able to learn to live
alone, to get to know herself, to be able to take care of herself and to love
herself. Knowing your worth is the
prerequisite to having a healthy relationship.
You must know your worth and set standards for a man to show he is worthy
of your consideration.
Knowing your worth means that you don’t go chasing after
anyone. Your mere presence will draw
potential mates like flies. But we have
to brush away the flies to allow the real prize access. Now, giving access does NOT mean access to
the gold between your thighs. Hold off
on that. Allow access to your innermost
thoughts and desires. Allow access to
your scars and wounds. Then allow access
to your heart. He, in turn will follow
You (and me too) We are Worthy of being treated as the
Queens that we are. But first We must
release our Inner Queen. Exude an aura
of royalty and your King shall come!
When I met Tricia, a Representative of Touchstone Crystal at first I was just intrigued by the beautiful jewelry display. When I learned that I could become a consultant and put some extra money in my pockets I became VERY interested.
Using the same system as Avon and Mary Kay, this is an opportunity for us as women to become our own boss, by providing a high quality product.
Swarovski Crystals are not new. They have been around for 120 years and is very exclusive. Swarovski continues to add sparkle to people’s lives with Touchstone Crystal, their fastest-growing social selling business. Backed by our strong heritage and quality reputation, Touchstone Crystal brings the magic of Swarovski crystal directly to women’s doorsteps.
Inspired by decades of creative collaborations and expertise, Swarovski opened its first boutique in the 1980s. The world’s fascination with a new brand of jewelry and crystal figurines began. With the introduction of the annual limited edition Christmas ornament, a new tradition was born for collectors around the world.
In the 20th century, Swarovski unleashed incredible opportunities for designers of haute couture. The “Aurora Borealis effect”, developed with Christian Dior in the 1950s, gave crystals a mesmerizing opalescent finish and the fashion world new creative possibilities. The crystals graced the silver screen in the century’s most iconic films such as “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” On May 19th, 1962, Marilyn Monroe sang to the American President in a flesh-colored gown covered in Swarovski crystal, which was auctioned off in 1999 for 1.26 million dollars.
So you can see why I am so excited about my new venture! I encourage you to explore the benefits of being a consultant and if you are in the Philadelphia area, I invite you to my Launch Party where you can actually see the quality of the jewelry while enjoying light refreshment, wine, and take a dip in the pool if you so desire!
In contrast of being founder and organizer for the Globe Trotting Divas of Philadelphia Travel Club, one of
Philadelphia’s most active Women’s Only Travel Clubs where group travel is our
focus, after taking my first trip to Jamaica alone in September 2016, I attest
that every female traveler should try traveling alone at least once.
It was Negril, Jamaica I traveled to and stayed for 6 days @
Riu Negril All-Inclusive Resort.
Before arriving I had conducted in depthresearch and created a well thought
out itinerary of how I would spend my time and navigate throughout the island. I
felt perfectly safe but I should also note that this trip to Jamaica would make
my 7th visit but first time traveling to the island alone. After my
return home I felt renewed, restored and ready for my next solo vacation.
Here’s why woman should experience solo travel at least
Over Come Fear
Traveling alone affords the opportunity to overcome fear.
If your biggest fear of traveling alone is safety in depth research of your
host destination is the obvious. But upon arrival apply common sense during
your journey. After all, there are some places right in your current place of
residence that you know not to be at after a certain hour. Will the same not
apply while traveling? Familiarize yourself with the laws of the country you’ll
be visiting as well.
Another fear you’ll overcome is the fear of speaking with
strangers. My oh my I quickly became used to speaking with and holding great
conversations with great people that once appeared as total strangers!
Build Your Own
Now, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE group travel!
But traveling alone allows you to be on your own schedule. Sightsee at your
leisure, sleeping in or rise with the sunset, hang out with locals without your
friends asking more questions than the FBI. Whatever it may be the choice if
yours and no confirmation is needed.
The most important moment you’ll have while traveling
solo is the opportunity to regroup, rethink and recreate yourself. While
traveling solo in Negril I took a day to inhale new thoughts and clear my mind
and reflect on things that required my attention. I was at a peace of mind and took the day to
write out my thoughts, plans and reflections on life.
You’ll Meet New
Go ahead and book without your friends! You’ll meet new
people along your journey. During my trip I met lots of wonderful people from
all over the world that were visiting Jamaica during the time I was. I danced,
took a tour and ate lunch with complete strangers. And later those strangers became friends whom
I still connect with. For someone like myself who can be extremely shy being
social with strangers certainly caused me to come out of my shell and the one
thing I discovered was that it’s OK!
You’ll Build Self
Traveling solo will help build your self-confidence. It pushes you to dismiss the limits you set
for yourself. You’ll find that zip lining brings out the adventure side you’ve
kept bottled up and that eating snails isn’t so bad after all and traveling
through the city alone without your friends or significant other is actually a
great idea because you can sightsee at your leisure. Even more, you’ll discover
that you can’t wait to do it all again!
Have you traveled solo? What was your experience? What
would you like to add?
I began blogging in 2006 – way before it became poplar. I started blogging at that time because I had
some family members who were running for political offices and, I think we all
used that as part of our grieving process.
I blogged about issues in our communities, the political process, etc.
Then I started blogging about other issues that concerned or
Over the years I’ve learned that blogging is a great
marketing tool for any business. Businesses
that have a blog and consistently and effectively write informational posts
