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!
He came home with roses for date night! @lliwal
I know this may not look like much to you but It took me awhile to get the colors right and on top of that I don’t have Photo shop which would have made my life 10X easier! I had to do this in Microsoft Word!
I LOVE this because too often I find my self making excuses for why I can’t do something! The truth is what would happen if I actually did something about all the things I can make excuses about! So one day I decided I would “x” one more excuse off my list and I joined @weightwatchers…. well 2 weeks ago to be exact and I’m 3.4 pounds down so far! It’s not much but it’s a start! Me not wanting to be accountable for what I eat or the fact that’s it’s hard will no longer be an excuse for me! Trying to be excuseless instead of full of excuses! So if there is something in your life that you don’t like or unhappy about change it…and stop make excuses! Excuses won’t get you anywhere other than where you already are! So up and onward for me! Thankful for finally waking up! #jointhejourney #WW #30daysofthankful
