What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love Day 7 - Book Tour Updates

I talk to myself constantly. I am ALWAYS in intentional inner conversation with myself. I tell myself how capable, amazing, valuable and needed I am.
If I pass a mirror I say "hey gorgeous" if I need motivation, I go to a
mirror and give myself a pep talk. If I am mad, I discuss my feelings with
myself. The parts of my body I don't like, I tell it "I love you and I'm
going to make you better." If I don't get something, I ask the Holy Spirit
to teach me. I make sure that I'm rehearsing in my mind what I want to see play out in my day.and I'm always SPEAKING OUT what I desire to see happen.  Shanell Cooper Sykes

Today is the annual Queen Series Extravaganza, it's a celebration of
womanhood, of sisterhood, of love and sharing, being held at the YWCA in New York City, I am quite humbled to be a part of this celebration! Truth be told, I am nervous and this is where I call on my friends and teachers like Shanell Cooper Sykes to remind myself that this is what I asked for, what I wanted and here we are so what you gonna do?

My mum and aunt flew to NYC as well for this, while I love the support in
my head it's pressure to be better than usual! So constant speaking to
myself is the order of the day today!

It feels good to be a queen!
