I just updated some of my GOALS for my blog. It will be a challenge, but it will be one that I know will have success written all over it. I have failed at a few of the goals that I wanted to reach because I have not written anything in a while. So in the mean time, here are some updates.
In April, I had a blogiversary! Congrats to me! One year of doing this periodically!
I want to share more quality, motivational, and inspiring content with my readers/followers. ( Still a work in progress)
Focus more on quality dialog and engagement with my followers/readers. (WORK IN PROGRESS)
NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK!!!! (still working on this)
Reach 500 followers on WordPress by August 2016. (Failed miserably on this one-need 300 more followers)
Reach 1000 followers on WP by December 31, 2016. (still a work in progress)
Offer MY experiences and share more about who and why I am “A PERFECTLY FLAWED RUBY!” (what you guys have been waiting for) (WORKING ON IT)
Set up a publishing schedule. I work at night and it would be in my best interest to do this.
Restart my “Friendly Friday’s” segment beginning on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month. (Best to do this one monthly as well)
Start “Social Saturdays” monthly. (WORKING ON IT–I am working on most weekends but I will definitely try harder)
CREATE, CREATE, CREATE!!!!! My blog is more of a journal but I would like to move it to a “lifestyle” blog. (Ambitious goal)
Become a “guest blogger” to many of you! ; ) (I’m still waiting, LOL)
Those grunts can be heard around the world! When they are on the tennis courts, they are a force to be reckoned with, together and separate. The Williams’ sisters have dominated the world of tennis since they were teenagers, nearly 20 years. They have definitely placed their stamp on it.
Who are the little black girls with beads and braids? I remember watching them on television and thinking, black girls in tennis? They have their hair in braids, they are the same color as I am.
Venus Ebony Starr Williams has been ranked No. 1 on three occasions. She became the first black American woman to be ranked No. 1 in February 2002. She has gone on to win several major titles individually and while playing in mixed doubles and doubles with her sister Serena. Venus has not been as dominate as her sister, but, she has proven that she is a force to be reckoned with. They have faced each other on numerous occasions and has created one of the best rivalries in tennis. Venus has missed several tournaments because for health reasons but she has come back to defeat some ranked opponents. Venus has also been a spokesperson for the equality of women salaries in professional tennis.
Serena Jameka Williams is the younger sister of Venus. She is the greatest female tennis player of all times. Serena’s accolades and achievements go on and on. She is 3rd on the all time Grand Slam list with 21 and is chasing Steffi Graf. Last year, she faced a heartbreaking defeat as she was chasing history in the U. S. Open. Serena is the second highest paid female athlete in 2015. She was named Sportsperson of the Year for 2015 by Sports Illustrated.

The songs are not in any particular order except for #1. That song holds a very sentimental place in my heart. I love Sade! I hope you enjoy and maybe you can think of some other songs that should be on the list. There are some more artists that I can think of,too.
As she stood there, trying to decide if she should keep going or turn around, she realized everything that she wanted was in front of her. Most of her life, she was crippled by FEAR! FEAR was her comfort zone. She could not go any further. She knew it was an uncertain future, but, it had to be better than her past. How would she know if she didn’t move? How would she know that her life would be remarkably different if she didn’t take the first step?
So many times in our lives, we are paralyzed by FEAR. FEAR of the unknown. We lose so much because we are afraid to take those steps.
2 Timothy 1:7–“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of sound mind.
We have got to stop letting FEAR consume us and let FAITH move us.
