I love the idea of having a bunch of people I run to for support — if I got questions, need help, just wanna vent, need an introduction — whatever it may be. But for the time being, my tribe is me and my girl Elle. We’ve been friends since high school, but we’ve been on this hustlin’ journey together since 2012? I don’t know, maybe longer. And there’s nothing like having at least one person in your life, who gets it. Who has the same drive and ambition and passion to make something out of life. She’s in North Carolina doing her fashion thing, I’m here in LA, probably doing too many things. But it doesn’t matter the mileage of time difference between. We always seem to on the same wavelength. It’s crazy. But it’s wonderful. I don’t know what I’d do without someone like her.
So I finished off the Bay Bridge bottle of Merlot I had in fridge, gave her a call and really felt like I had a meeting of the minds with my sister from another mother. One of our weekly check-ins. It matters so much to have that. To have a tribe of my own — of even just one. Grab you a bottle. Find you a friend.

Finally finished! Doesn’t it look nice? It’s my vision board. I made it a goal to complete one of these before 2018 got away from and I’m so happy I did. I started one of these years ago and never got around to finishing it. I think the reason I didn’t finish my first one was mostly because I thought I had to find pictures and images that looked exactly what I saw in my head. Impossible, half the time. So, it was no wonder it never got finished. I could never find exactly what I saw in my head in magazines or online. But once I realized that the images placed on a vision board are supposed to be a representation of what I wanted, rather than an identical picture, putting this together become a breeze.
I plan to make three more of these, with more focused themes.
Plus, a number of articles state how powerful a vision board can be for manifesting the things you want from your life. It’s not a “to-do” list, but a very powerful way of connecting our subconscious minds with our conscious efforts and actions. Goals, ambitions, desires, whatever it may be. Many have said it worked for them. And this single and hustlin’ female is more than willing to see if all those claims are true.
Has anyone else created a vision board in which something from it manifested and become real in your life? Please let me know!
(For those of you who notice the bottle of Merlot to the left side of the picture… you’re a person after my own heart. Bay Bridge’s Merlot. Consider this Foodless’ two buck chuck. Literally! $2.79. Got me a few bottles because I could and I wanted them. And it’s bad for a Merlot in the middle of the week in the new year. Just sayin’)
