Kinging; as a Queen

So lately I’ve been meditating.

Meditating on Ps 23:1. ‘The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want’. ‘Want’! Not ‘Need’

Do you know what that means? We are not talking about basic needs for survival. WANT!!!! Chew on that – this is not a mere blog post!

What do you want? An island. A Ferarri, A great job? Whatever! ‘Want’ not ‘Need’.

That’s like an open cheque. Do you know where the real problem lies? It lies in your mind – your mindset – not daring to dream nor really really want. Before the thought even creeps into your minds, your fear kills it. But guess what? It is really already given to you because again Phil 4:19, all needs (wants) have been provided according to heavenly riches – immeasurable!

Imagine you are royalty – a queen – born into countless riches, everything you want, you have. You are clueless to what lack really means, because you’re a queen. This is the best part of this post for me – telling you, your imaginations are a reality, your Heavenly Father is a King, YOU are His heir, YOU are a QUEEN. Can we just go into the world and start living it out like yesterday?

Yas! We are Queens

Always told mum at age 5 that I want to be a Queen when I grow up!

Stun in Peplum

Ladies (all shapes and sizes) get in here!!! LOL!

We all love dresses that accentuate our curves. I love the way peplums have the potential to flatter our plus size curves, enhance our size 0 curves and accentuate every figure in between.

If you haven’t noticed, I love me a good peplum in any form, dress, belt, shirt, skirt and even pants.

I designed the dress below and my tailor friend made it for me. Her deets are below.

How do you rock yours?

99 problems, a good outfit ain’t 1!

Read the following story (I hope you do) or scroll down to outfit pictures:

Story was told of a pastor who told everyone in his congregation to pen down all their problems in life and drop the sheets of paper at the altar.

Boy! Did they write and write and write and laid everything at the foot of the cross – altar – the aim was to let go and let God takeover.

In a twist of things and to teach them gratitude, he then asked them to come back to the altar and pick any random sheet (knowing it would be impossible to pick the exact same one they dropped). So everyone picked someone Else’s.

He then urged them to open the sheets and read the problems they had in their hands. Shouts of exclamations filled the chapel as they all realized what other people were facing seemed a million times worse than what they themselves were going through.

“I’ll take mine back” they all started saying, I can’t deal with these things I’m reading. The pastor had a hearty laugh knowing no further sermon was needed on gratitude as he asked them to all drop back the sheets at the altar.

You see, while life isn’t perfect, and problems may come and go, you have to learn to let go and let God and as difficult as it is to be grateful in the midst of problems, you have to train yourself to be.

My life changed when I started thanking God for my problems and what He was trying to teach me through them and when I started giving out literally the last money and things on me at my poorest and my most broke times.

In an attempt to relate this story to my fashion – hope this works –

1. I’ll say life isn’t perfect but your outfit can be.

2. 99 problems but a good outfit isn’t one

Duh!

Whoever said you couldn’t mix and match your basic pieces – yup! Your denim jacket is definitely a basic – with your night out pieces, was lying!!!!!!

I decided to pair both in my usual creative style and I completely love the outcome! Do you?

Pretty sure you do:

Sustainability in businesses

Hello readers,

I know I’m long overdue for a new post so here goes:

Ever wondered why you see businesses you once thought successful fold up? Today’s topic, Sustainability in Business, is on my mind and here are a few points to keep in mind when creating and sustaining a successful business, I hope you learn a few things from it.

  1. Try to create a business that can be sustained in your physical absence. A business that requires you to be there before things move smoothly needs to be re-structured to ensure long term sustainability.
  2. Focus on building a global brand name for the purpose of (but not limited to) franchising; think what contributes to McDonald’s success (trust me on this one, I’ve done a couple of their  financial analysis). You would not only benefit from a sustainable and reputable brand name, you would also benefit financially from this.
  3. Closely monitor economic trends, if there’s industry changes, you would want to know the causes and determine if you should strategically move with the big players; think why Kodak failed. Also, for instance in the next 15 years the world would be relying on sources of alternative and sustainable energy, oil might be no where and at that point Oil industry players should be moving towards where the patterns are leading.
  4. Don’t undermine the power of your competitors even if you are an industry leader; pay close attention to market trends.
  5. Make realistic financial projections. Expecting to break even too soon can sometimes be the cause of financial stress on a business. Not breaking even or making profit in the first few years is not an indicator of an unsustainable business.
  6. Engage your customers. Pay close attention to feedback and be particular about customer service. They are why you are in business. As much as you can, pursue brand loyalty.
  7. Partner with people that believe in your brand. Successful businesses are not smooth sailing all the time but having partners and strategic alliances who support you makes it easier.

Creating sustainability in your business requires much more than can be outlined in one post but keeping these in mind is a great place to start and always refer to. Overtime, I would also be writing about specific topics. I’m also open to writing on topics you suggest.

Thank you readers and have a great week ahead. Cheers. xx
