True Confession: Unmask The Ego


I’ve been debating on posting these pictures for the craziest reason. Okay, so last week I was ask if I could meet with a beauty for a discussion over dinner...I excepted. Wanting to be comfortable and casual...I pulled out a really cute casual outfit but changed my mind on the entire outfit because of my shoe of choice for the evening. Normally I always throw on heels but after a days work and swollen ankles I wanted to simply be comfortable, plus I was anxious to rock my sneaks. So my 2nd outfit of choice was very cute but I wasn’t feeling the color selection of jeans... now I’m running short on time so I grab a different jean, a jacket laying across my vanity chair and race out the door.

Now I’ve arrived to the restaurant, cute and comfortable. The beauty whom I was meeting with greeted me at the door with a warm hug and said “You’re cute! You in sneakers? That’s a first.” "Oh my", I thought...but I can’t change now. So we proceed to the table she said she had waiting....as we approached the area, I noticed a familiar face, as we continued to walk I noticed several familiar faces. I'm curious to know what's going on. To my surprise it was a SET UP! LOL!

Over the course of the past few of weeks I've been perplexed with things, which assures me that I'm human. Sometimes we neglect ourselves and find ourselves in mental strain. IT'S SO OKAY TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE HUMAN and I give myself permission to be human and exercise my human right. LOL. So let's fast forward to the SET UP, several individuals were contacted last minute by my assistant and they all agreed to be apart of this last minute gathering to surprise me with lots of love. Some took off work, changed their schedules, put their lives on hold to celebrate me. Wow! Overwhelmed with joy is an understatement of what I felt in that moment realizing why the chosen individuals where in attendance... I did my best to keep my lashes in tact... barely. Can you believe there was a bet going that I wouldn’t cry because I’m always the one to hold it together for everyone else? Well, I had a moment or two after all the beautiful words of gratitude, gifts and... then this happened...

I received a certificate of recognition from The City of Houston and Mayor Sylvester Turner!!!

Although I was beyond grateful for all the love, in my mind I was disappointed that I had not dressed differently or worn heels or worn a less ripped pair of jeans or the blazer from my 2nd outfit or this or that. OMG...I wish I had known...I would have been dressed up, more polished, dressed for the occasion. Then I was thrusted into this...
