One Hundred “No’s!”

Hey y’all!

Don’t go off on me, I’ve been MIA due to personal life. I had to take a breather until I realized that Little Girls Big Dreams IS my personal life! Thanks for being patient with me because it has been FOREVER!

Tonight (Monday) I want to talk about this list that I have been MEANING to compose for a few months now. I have been a huge fan of The Sunday Jumpstart Podcast, it is an inspirational podcast that motivates me to do whatever it is that I need to do, be it resting or working. Check it out when you get the chance it’s available on all platforms and truly helps with the start of your week.

Anyway, the host of this podcast Jessica Lauren, did a show about something called “100 no’s” and its really quite simple. Make a list of 100 people, companies, businesses, that you want to work with…and pursue them. The point of this is to 1. NEVER GIVE UP. 2. Don’t let hearing the word “no” discourage you. I felt like this episode was for me, I do not enjoy being rejected and as soon as I am I put on my tattered super woman cape and proceed to do it all or not do it at all. This is a trait that I am not proud of, but honesty is key here on the Little Girls Big Dreams Streets.

I know that God made me resilient, I also know that He is a one day God, and that if I keep pressing forward, if I keep praying and pushing, eventually my one day will come. In this case I am referring to the dream that I see for Little Girls Big Dreams, I know that this is a passion placed on my heart by God and that it is not fair to give up on it just because I feel like my support is lacking, or because I’m getting my emails ignored, or because I’m PREGNANT (yea The Canady’s are welcoming a new addition April 2019). Resting is fine but quitting is not. So if you see me in your inbox wanting to collaborate, or asking for a donation it is because God sent me, and I refuse to give up on my purpose.

I’m baaaaccckkkk!!!!!

#InSpireMe: GirlTrek

Hey Dreamers! Here is some midweek inspiration for you! I try to pull away from a Netflix binge from time to time and find something to watch that will inspire me. Today I perused Ted and this is what I found. So many wonderful people are making a difference in the world, just by being passionate about life, living, giving, caring, and loving.

Something that stood out for me in the video was how women in general take care of everyone but themselves. Husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, the list is endless and women are always the last, by choice.

I am Lakeisha, the daughter of Rita, daughter of Ruthie, daughter of Ella, daughter of Elzora, and  daughter of Ruth.

Ella died at the age of 50 due to a “bad heart” she birthed 12 children, 11 lived.

I never met my great-grandmother, I’ve always wanted to though. She left this place before my mother was even born. I was told she had a bad heart. How can a woman that birthed 12 kids, and start my entire family have a “bad heart”? Self care is so important, self love is important, putting yourself first is important.

“Walking 30 minutes per day can single-handedly decrease 50% of your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, even Alzheimer and dementia”

Get out there and move ladies, you owe it to yourselves.
