As I’m sitting here thinking about how I need to make a change, I open my fortune and what do I see! GOD is saying just hold on a little while longer and I will take care of everything!  All will be unveiled soon! #nomorestruggling #changeiscoming
The Bible says without vision the people will perish! I’ve been working on my vision board for a couple of months now! I am so happy I decided to do this! Seeing all of my dreams and aspirations make me work that much harder each and everyday!  :)
The Truth

Death is one of those hard things for me! As I’m sure it is for everyone. I often find myself at a loss of words when it comes to someone close to me passing away! I don’t know what to say or how to say it! I’m a big person on timing! There is a time and a place to say things! But, honestly when is the right time to say someone close to me died? So sometimes I don’t say anything because I spend so long thinking about when and how I am going to say this, nothing ever comes out! This year I’ve been trying to work on myself and embrace change, because I like some change but not all change. So I am taking this step to see death as not an ending just a new beginning! So to my Grandpa Ray, may you rest in peace and watch Cardinals games from heaven and enjoy this new adventure! I LOVE YOU MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW! Thank you for all of the great memories! You will forever be in my heart! Love, Bad Baby!

Girls Like Us

love-carter:

I don’t dream a lot but when I do it will set on fire,
crash and burn
and change my life forever.
Girls like me don’t get to dream
Or live our dreams.
We don’t get faithfulness
Purity
Innocence
Or youth
We age fast and aimlessly
We get gray hair at 21
Our hearts pump and pump and pump as
We watch others and
endure the hardship they couldn’t handle.

I guess we were made for suffering.
We were made for enduring
We were made for fighting wars
Within the world
Within ourselves.

Yessssss…… I LOVE THIS! In the last couple months I have learned so much about being a woman in the corporate world and on top of that being a minority woman in the corporate world. As women we need to stick together and fight for equal rights, equal pay and to end double standards! I may be a woman but I refuse to be or be treated like anything less than I am because I am a child of the most high GOD!

So its crazy that sometimes just a few days can open up a world of change of change for you! I honestly find myself going back to my roots constantly asking why I ever changed what I did or what I wanted to do! I have a passion for designing it actually kind of goes along with my passion for planning! I’ve always been a creator! I think that’s one of the reasons I like to bake! I like to just put something together and watch it turn out great! And to be honest I’m a real perfectionist because although people love my cupcakes they aren’t exactly how I want them to be! Maybe it’s it’s the density, the recipe or the texture I’m not quite sure! I’m on the hunt for this perfect cupcake! Then I wonder to myself is it not okay for every cupcakes to be made different and does that make one cupcake not equally as good! Well really the answer is IDK! I think either in the beginning of 2014 or maybe it was my 2013 horoscope for for the year! It said you won’t be happy until you are doing something creative and that is completely right! This year that is all changing! I’ve realized that I want to do more designing so I am going to perfect my design skills! I feel most at piece when I am creating. I also joined joined a talent agency and I’m going to take acting lessons! And I’m going to take a business course on Monday nights starting next month to help me figure out how to really run my business! I don’t know all of this will turn out but one thing is for sure! I am going to get creative and do what I love, because this whole living inside someone else’s box isn’t going to work for me! I am going to continue to grow closer to GOD, find a new job that makes me happy, build an empire, leave that job and use my skills in branding, marketing and pr and go to work work for myself, become insanely successful, move somewhere new with my Hubbie, read more, and marry the love of my life Larry Alan Williams Jr., have some adorable babies, host my own television show, star in a movie, make a better way for women and minority women, and last but not least conquer the world and leave an impact so big when you hear the name Shaniqua you won’t think negatively! :) Pow I just did that!

St.Louis

I’ve always wanted to leave St.Louis to experience somewhere else! I had a dream that I was in Atlanta for the Woman Though Art Loose Conference in Atlanta and I fell in love with the City. I do want to go to the conference so who knows I might fall in love when I go! I really wish I could just spend the next year of my life traveling not always for work but so I could see different states and decide where I want to live.

Soooo I’ve been listening to sermons a lot over the past 4.5 to 5 months! And Pastor T.D. Jakes said what upsets you the most is what you are called to do! And to be honest a lot of things about this world upset me! I guess to name a few would be bad food, the mis-education of our youth especially African americans, the stereo types that women face, especially minorities, the disadvantages of women in the work place, the lack of successful African americans! And honestly the list could on forever! But I will stop there! I don’t know how I am going to do this but I am going to make an impact in the world in each of the areas that bother me! You know that’s why the devil is attacking me so hard right now and honestly throughout my entire life because he knows that I have a heart for change and I am here to serve to will of GOD and impact the world!
Meee…..
So today I decided one day I’m going to write a book and this quote will be in it ” I’m tired of trying to fit in the box that society wants me to fit in…so stop trying I will never fit in. I’m tired of trying to pretend to be someone I’m not…This is me and who GOD has called me to be! So speak up and get off the train of forever hold your piece! :) Done (period)
Meeeee….
We might argue, scream, fight and bicker like two old people but at the end of the day there is no one else I would rather spend my life with than this man right here! Even when Im mad at you I cant help but SMILE because I am so in LOVE with you and so blessed to have to have you in my life! I LOVE YOU HUBBIE! Today and everyday I am thankful for you and all you do!  l LOVE YOU! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July we had a lot of fun!
