I am so happy to introduce a new section on my blog for my friends, fellow bloggers, or influencers to showcase their craft on my platform. When I first launched in January I wanted to focus my attention to creating a space that everyone felt heard as well as collaborating with other people that I look up to. I firmly believe that collaboration is so much better competition.
Kenya Smith is one of the first people I thought of when I was thinking about starting this. She is one of the most inspirational and motivational people I know and I am so happy to feature her on my page!
For more information on her and what she does please follow her on social media!

“Characteristics of a Support System:
– Stick through hard times
– Being motivational
– Help in any way shape or form
Surprisingly, a lot of people in the world go through life without any kind of support system. To help them through school, finding their career or passion, getting through emotional situations, people without a support system go through these situations alone. I could never imagine going through the things I’ve been through in this life without my supportive groups. Because like my great-grandmother always said, ” It takes a village to raise a child”. And with every new thing I encounter in my life, I am put back into child form just to maneuver my way through.
So for my people that have a strong support system, treasure them all because God has placed them in your life for a reason. And for the others reading this that feel alone, open yourself up. Ask the Lord for guidance to find the surrounding circle that’s best for you. And remain patient, because you don’t want just anyone within your support collective. Allow people in, that have similar outlooks on your goals, or are just willing to invest their time and energy into your advancement.
For those who feel like they can do it all alone. And have someone trying to come in and help. Let that person in just once, and see the blessings that come into your life. All I know is Jesus was God’s right hand, Oprah makes life decisions based on the honesty of her best friend Gail, and Mary Kate is not said with Ashley Olsen. I’m sure that things can be done individually but with multiple heads together greatness happens.
You can change the world by yourself, but its way more fun to have the people who helped you to the top surrounding you when you reach that goal. Support systems are needed.”
Thank you for listening and thank you to Kenya for being apart of this!
