It has been a few weeks since my last post. Fall 2010 at work is in full effect. The clothes, accessories, and shoes are on point. I’m so happy to be a part of it all. Fall is also my favorite season and mainly due to the fashions.
I can’t believe that I’m up thinking about fashion. Hmmm…I do have some other things on my mind. I wanted to take a vacation before the Summer ended but the timing is off. All work and no play is really getting boring. I need to be on a beach with a book, floppy hat, big shades, and loads of sunscreen. Maybe next month will be the opportune time because August is hectic!!
When I think about Baltimore I never think about moving back. I outgrew that city years ago and I’m grateful for what it did offer me. It is a great place for me to pop in to for a couple of days. Yesterday, made me further aware of that fact.
I’ve been health conscious for the past two years. Burning Whole Foods and other health food stores up. Those little things bring me joy. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I also have that feeling when I’m in a cosmetics department or makeup store *BIG CHEESE*. Anyway, I went to MD for two days and was on the hunt for a store that did juicing. I only found one 20 minutes away and the hours of operation were not convenient. On the other hand if I wanted carry out or fast food there are two or three on each block in some areas. It is very challenging for someone as myself who doesn’t eat that food.
Now I live in a city where there are so many other health conscious people and health stores. It makes me love my city even more. I never have to worry about spending almost an hour trying to find something healthy early in the morning or late at night.

Today is a day that I will never forget. It marks the start of a new period in life for me. Don’t get me wrong I’ve had this power all along. I don’t know where the hesitation to commit to a healthier more beneficial lifestyle came from. I’ve only tried a handful of times and failed. I’m not a quitter and I am more than thrilled to try again.
God has been working with me and shining his light on me. I’m fully convinced that it is not meant for me to ever walk in darkness but through it. I am much more than a new “New Yorker” and a pretty face. The cast and script to my life has been tweaked and tweaked some more for the better.
The start of The Inner Beauty Movement begins with a seven day fast. My dear friend Shawna is doing it with me. We are each others push and encouragement because we will definitely need it. Luckily, we live in the same building. This is my 1st fast of 2010.
Fasting always centers me and enables me to see past the mundane. It affords me the time and energy to “Be Still”. I’m ready and willing to receive this new energy. I will never forget July 1, 2010. The Inner Beauty Movement here I stand.
