” Fill your life with experiences not with things. Have stories to tell not stuff to show. ” – unknown
Many things just had happen for the past few weeks that I’ve never been imagine as a start up blogger will experience. Anyway, its a lesson learned for me because of my ignorance or lacked of knowledge and research as well. Here’s what happen, after I published one of my blog- I had no chance to update my other blog because I am busy at work.
Then after a week or two I go back to check on my website and I was shock because my setting was disarrange and it was messy. Aside from that, I cannot open my website with my regular laptop and my desk top. Luckily I have my iPhone that helps me to contact WordPress.com Happy Engineers.

The first thing that comes up to our minds when we hear about website is business or formal business, a serious business that only the nerds or geniuses are capable of doing so. But, hey wait a minute that’s not true, now a days those mindset are no longer entertained by the exlennials , terms for generation X and millennials. From our skeptical point of view, we the generation X must see to it that we are not only surviving on this pandemic but also we have to thrive to survive.
Let me first elaborate what am I talking here, a website is a crucial tool to leverage our online marketing business, whether it is digital product or physical products. Website is the seal of authenticity of the business either it is online or offline. Here are some simple ways on how to create content for your website.
Since it is your content, why not make a difference but do not go far beyond, that you can not justify your content in the end. Make it simple and doable but it must be original. Don’t complicate your content.
Though most of the niche are repetitive, make your content stand out. It’s okay to do some research but not to the point that you are copying the contents word by word.
You must know the purpose why you are writing that content. To whom you are addressing those contents? Is it for women or men? Is it a product that you want to promote for certain age group? And many other kinds of purposes.
Your originality will come a long way. It might be hard on the first time but it’s okay. You reap what you sow especially if your content ideas will benefit others in the long run.
On the website like the one you are creating, you will need to structure an SEO- friendly content. This is how you draw attention to more traffic leads, such as clicks, shares, likes, comments, and customer satisfaction guaranteed.
It helps the search engine to optimized what is the content all about, the SEO understand it in a simple commands. The SEO friendly will help you to get ranking on your website. So, make sure to give the right to keywords to google when the search began.
Then, the question is , how did a Good Social media Integration happens? Those people who are already familiar on how to run the business in the social media platform they recognized the importance of having a website. It is the primary location that customers go when they want to find out more information .
The social media outlets like Twitter, Yelp, and blogging flat forms like to create and participate in a conversation of a company products and services. The positive conversation called “social proof” which is like compared to a friend who introduces a new products to a visitor, either it is a word of mouth marketing, or through posts and likes.
The social media platform played a vital role in promoting our contents, it helps us to reach out other demographics that also wanna learn how to make money online or want to learn simple marketing through social networking.
Aside from providing your audience an original content, always put in mind that your audience are the most important asset of your company. Even though your contents are the most promising one, if we don’t show respect to our audience tendency are we will be losing most of the potential customers.
Speaking directly to your readers with clear and direct message to your target audience will help you to be unique and not sounds like you a guru, that in the end you are asking them to join an affiliates that only you knows the answer. Remember, that most of the time your audience knows better.
Lastly, on one the many, put aside your own agenda when writing your content. People need help to find products and services that save them enough time, easy and affordable. Why not putting the most important information first and get to the point right away.
One of the example is how to put up the most powerful landing page? First,give the most important information, that in creating landing page, you will need a to create a landing page template, a you will need a name, then create a unique content like this and many more.
With this in mind I encounter a very good products that I am reading right now. Its called the Click Wealth System written by Matthew Tang. To check out Click Wealth System and for more information go to – (https://2e443a97p3yp2pa-r5f49y9k7t.hop.clickbank.net/)
There are so many contents to read on how to make a beautiful content. But most importantly learn and develop to speak your mind.
Nowadays if you hear about Digital Marketing , people think of eCommerce, online business, pyramid scheme, affiliate marketing and so on. It’s kind of I can agree on and it’s kind of I can disagree on. Though all of us are fall into that niche, many of us don’t know what to do next after making your first website. Most of the people just love to start but never make it to the end to make money. This is just base on my observation cause many digital marketer are having a misconception about what is Digital marketing all about.
What is digital marketing in layman’s term? Digital Marketing refers to any online marketing efforts or assets that connected to different platform in the internet world. Today , I will just discuss about simple things to know about how can you build your website in fast and efficient way. This 8 Fundamentals will surely help you on how to determine your niche. By the end of this presentation you will be familiar with the key components of brand identity, and you will know how to creates a Unique Selling Proposition ( USP ), and why a USP is so important.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BRANDS – ” A brands is simply a collections of your perceptions or understanding in the mind of the consumer.” ( Paul Feldwick, author of How to think differently about Advertising ). Perception occurs every time a customer encounters a company or organization. These encounters are moments of truth and some are more important than the others. It’s very important for a company to stablish a brand because this will be the distinction of where the business is heading to.
The company’s brand is the most important piece of your foundation in your marketing communication. Without having a permanent brand it’s hard to compete in the market because of the unchanging nature of the business. Essentially brand is the personality that identifies the products, service or the company itself. The brand speaks about company values. The customers wants to see everything, they want to hear, feel, see, and experience before they dive in. Customers had a very curious mindset.
Always keep in mind that brand experience is what customers remembers about a company. It’s what leads to lasting impressions, preferences and performance. Proper branding can result in higher sales of a certain products.
AUDIENCE – Knowing your audience is the central part of how you design your market strategy.

How about your competitors? Have you been thinking how to evaluate their brand, their brand voice, the types of marketing strategies they use and the messages they bring out in their advertising? What techniques are they using? Are you using the same techniques? Knowing your competitors gives you the advantage in the marketplace. You can pick up for what is work and what is not working then you can develop your input to improve your market. One of the best strategy is knowing your clients personally, what makes them so excited or what makes them fear not to engage? Did you make a research for what is the latest trends in the market that draws their attention? And lastly, make a survey of your demographics, its very important that you will get a lot of engagements like share, comments and likes. This things will really help you to expand your audience. and your business as well.

Thus, we should be careful in choosing a domain name. It should be professional and appropriate.
KEYWORD RESEARCH – A Keyword search looks for words anywhere in the record. It is the word that you type in if you are looking for specific subject in the internet. Google uses those words when you command search.

The road are slippery, as I passed today I noticed a cute little house near the roadside. I wonder what it was so I stop by. Frosty tree branches are nearby, little did I noticed there is a bench beside. So I took out my phone and begin to take some photos and to my amazement there is a trail of woods. O what a beautiful sight it is. That the surrounding of this little thing there is an enchanted views that was hidden. After I examined the site, I go back to this little house near the roadside. Covered with snow and I got frost bite, still I stood beside to this little house. Out of my curiosity, I open the door of this tiny cute little house, and to my surprise there are so many books inside. Oh what a pretty sight on this wooden frosty bright, there was a little house with a bench beside, giving warmth to everyone because of its mysterious sight.
As I walked away from this little library, beside the roadside near the frosty sight. I noticed a post saying on this quote; ” Little free Library, Take a Book, Return a book, Leave a note!.” Everyday, people passed by, with their rushing mind and busy lifestyle, they seldom to notice this beautiful sight. Everyone on the Prairies are now rushing to the city, without even notice a tiny roadside library, but today I decided to write a story about this cute tiny library, hoping someday when you have a chance to drop by and see, there is a cute Little library near the roadside on the Prairie.
” It is magic when two people fall in love” unknownAllow me to sip my coffee before I begin my story. Yes, love is the most beautiful thing that will happened when two people fall for each other. But the question is, what if that love is bound by customs, traditions and mostly what if he is already taken?
Being a new comer to a certain place is a very difficult situation. When I came to this part of the North, I knew nobody. Only the employer that hired me are going to be the first person I will knew. The agency that help me to processed my papers was the one drove me to my new workplace. When I got to the place it was so new to me. The people in that place are so warmed and very welcoming.
The blend in moment, at first I really wanna go back where I came from, but there’s no turning back . These people are my new family now and the children are so nice that they put nice pictures and drawings on the wall for me to see. It’s quite touching and memorable for me. It’s the first time somebody did those for me. Those are the unforgettable moment of my life. Anyways, that was twelve years ago. Although the rest is history, still fresh in my mind how that little prairie changed my life, and gained new perspective .
I never knew nor ever imagined that I would step into a New World like this. The picture of perfect place and environment where there is no pollution, there is no brown outs ( we called that for power shortage in the third world developing countries), where Wi-Fi is unlimited and fast. The children have the freedom to choose what to wear, where pants and jeans can go together, where you can wear a socks with two different colors and no one cares. There are no neighbors whose early in the morning are like alarm clock buzzing around the neighborhood telling everyone the hottest news in town. And one last thing, there is no karaoke in the street that makes you become zombie in the morning because you did not sleep well in the night. I’m really glad to blend in here.
Being Asian, our traditions and customs are far different from the Western countries. Our family ties are very different, we Asian love to be together forever, we need to finished school and get a degree, our parents choose the degree for us… it’s kind of lineage of a job. After finishing College or University, you need to find a job and help out the next siblings to finished their studies and so on. And time is passing you by, your boyfriend or your girlfriend can’t wait any longer, so they find someone else. Now you are heart broken, that’s the time parents are pushing their children to get married, the time that you are no longer interested to blend in!
But with regards to blend in relationship, Asian people has different side of stories. Divorce are very delicate issue and it’s a big scandal to the Asian world, whether you are entertainer, artists, politicians or just ordinary one. Your life will be in the spotlight for a moment of time. Just as the saying goes,” make nine good deeds, people forget them all for one single mistake.” That I believe, we people have the same in common. Well, I did not tell you yet about arranged marriages and so forth. Maybe next time!
Every year I like to find ways to inspire myself to do things on my own. Stimulating my mindset is one of them. For the last fifteen years, since I became a born again Christian, it’s already a habit to journal my meditations everyday. Starting from a mindset that was cultivated during the early years of having a quiet time before I start a day, now its already a habit. And it’s been awhile now since I started writing on to my website. Today, I wanna share Start Up Mindset Motivation that will inspire our journey together.
And lastly, don’t live to impress other people so that they may like you! Live according to your purpose and live it to the fullest and succeed.
EXPLORATION AND ADAPTABILITY
Most of the platform that agencies using right now is through website marketing, website advertising. Every time someone approach me to join them about Digital Marketing , I ended up becoming loser because most of them are in the business of networking, building agencies of their own corporate world. Most people think when they join, that’s how digital marketing is all about! So, in this case I myself go to school to further more my investigation about what is Digital Marketing?
Millions upon millions of websites, every type and description are surfacing the web, and there are lot of options where to put your platforms. Which one are the most effective and which one are not. In the world of digital marketing everything can happen but only few can make a great difference.
Your niche can help you to enhanced the value of your online platforms. If you are not sure what you want to share to help your audience, why not start on the things that you like to do. If it’s really hard for you to pick a niche ,then think about it carefully. Are you ready for this?
In my opinion, working your online business or working on the daily job, you will be required both efforts and time in order to generate revenue and income. Most of the start up business online will require you to put more energy and money, and definitely more time than working on the corporate world. But later on, it will give you choice that you are dreaming of. There is no short cut to success.
In order to survive in the online world, you will need to research and study what the market has to offer. Many of the blogger and social media influencer are putting a lot of efforts to fulfill their own dreams. We need to adapt on the trends, but also do not depart from your goals and focus as well.
Digital Marketing world is like , you are evolving in your on world, you focus on your own ideas. But you need to involved others as well in order to become productive. Do not close your door on your own, because you created it. Be open for learning and suggestion in order to grow as well.
If you are thinking of ideas about how to make money online, it will not hurt you if you invest in yourself some books to read . The simple secrets behind money, wealth and success in the Millionaire mindset book helps me lot too. https://amzn.to/3tzJGYz . It helps me to realize that we are not on our own. Being adaptable is gifts and it can be cultivated too.
Join communities that offering help to improve your niche. Build a group that has the same niche as you, it will help you to grow your audience and you can also help others as well.

The goal of this new editor is to make adding rich content to WordPress simple and enjoyable. This whole post is composed of pieces of content—somewhat similar to LEGO bricks—that you can move around and interact with. Move your cursor around and you’ll notice the different blocks light up with outlines and arrows. Press the arrows to reposition blocks quickly, without fearing about losing things in the process of copying and pasting.
What you are reading now is a text block the most basic block of all. The text block has its own controls to be moved freely around the post…
… like this one, which is right aligned.
Headings are separate blocks as well, which helps with the outline and organization of your content.
Handling images and media with the utmost care is a primary focus of the new editor. Hopefully, you’ll find aspects of adding captions or going full-width with your pictures much easier and robust than before.
Try selecting and removing or editing the caption, now you don’t have to be careful about selecting the image or other text by mistake and ruining the presentation.
Imagine everything that WordPress can do is available to you quickly and in the same place on the interface. No need to figure out HTML tags, classes, or remember complicated shortcode syntax. That’s the spirit behind the inserter—the
(+) button you’ll see around the editor—which allows you to browse all available content blocks and add them into your post. Plugins and themes are able to register their own, opening up all sort of possibilities for rich editing and publishing.
Go give it a try, you may discover things WordPress can already add into your posts that you didn’t know about. Here’s a short list of what you can currently find there:
A huge benefit of blocks is that you can edit them in place and manipulate your content directly. Instead of having fields for editing things like the source of a quote, or the text of a button, you can directly change the content. Try editing the following quote:
The editor will endeavor to create a new page and post building experience that makes writing rich posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes, custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery.Matt Mullenweg, 2017
The information corresponding to the source of the quote is a separate text field, similar to captions under images, so the structure of the quote is protected even if you select, modify, or remove the source. It’s always easy to add it back.
Blocks can be anything you need. For instance, you may want to add a subdued quote as part of the composition of your text, or you may prefer to display a giant stylized one. All of these options are available in the inserter.
You can change the amount of columns in your galleries by dragging a slider in the block inspector in the sidebar.
If you combine the new wide and full-wide alignments with galleries, you can create a very media rich layout, very quickly:
Sure, the full-wide image can be pretty big. But sometimes the image is worth it.
The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher.
Any block can opt into these alignments. The embed block has them also, and is responsive out of the box:
You can build any block you like, static or dynamic, decorative or plain. Here’s a pullquote block:
If you want to learn more about how to build additional blocks, or if you are interested in helping with the project, head over to the GitHub repository.
Thanks for testing Gutenberg!
Many are called but few are chosen. Some of those chosen are bold, shy, timid, fearful, weak yet in terms with serving the Living God we are all equal in His sight.
My weakness is my boldness, I stand when I know I am right, but I forgot that being humble is more righteous than being right all the time.
Our righteousness is come from God alone. And only Him deserves all the glory and praise through Jesus Christ. I have competitors who criticize me for being me, but it’s ok. What shall profit a man if he gains the whole world yet he lost his own soul?

“WAITING IS SWEET WHEN LOVE IS RIPEN RIGHT, BUT WHAT SHOULD I DO IF YOU ARE NOT READY TODAY. MAYBE TOMORROW?”
PART 3. ” Are really going to leave your girlfriend to me? Are you not afraid?” ask Ha Yun Lee. “Nope , not at all”, Michael smiled as he picked up his things to go on board; going back to England. ” Anyways tell your mom and dad, I thank them for feeding me during my stay.” Michael wave goodbye upon boarding. Hannah decided to stay a little bit in Seoul to finish her research about life in South Korea.
” Why did you stay?” asked Yun Lee to Hannah as they are heading home. “Why do you ask? I have Mike house and I have a one year visa here to stay, I’d enjoy my stay than worrying to go back home.” said Hannah with her bright eyes, Yun Lee can’t resist to stare at her beautiful face, with her expressive round brown eyes. Her cheeks looks soft and smooth that if she smiled makes the time stop. ” Hey, what’s up with look,” ask Hannah timidly. ” I thought you wanna cry, I can lend you my shoulder.” says Yun Lee. ” I’d like to, but no thanks,” smiled Hannah as they parted their ways. ” You have my number, call me if you need help of anything.” said Yun Lee. “Thank you.” answered Hannah.
Its been a month since Michael goes back to England and Hannah still working on her Investigatory report. As she work on her project, Yun Lee is also busy with his career,,He is doing well with it. “Yun Lee, have you seen this article written by Mama Kim, she seems like you a lot on this article.” asked by one of his staff. ” No, but let me see . I followed her social media account but doesn’t have any personal status, do you know who she is?” everyone was puzzled.
Hannah is doing her interview to an old lady when suddenly her phone rang. ” Hey, what’s up? been a long time ,” Hannah answered. ” Are you free tonight?” asked Yun Lee. ” Absolutely! are you taking me to a date?’ Hannah expressed excitedly. She’s been thinking about him lately after he wrote the article about Yun lee. She left a hole in her heart that she can’t explain why. Since she did the investigation on her written article, every time she think about Yun Lee , her heart is sinking . Her heart is aching again and can’t control the pain that was in her heart. ” Are you still there?” asked Yun Lee. ” Yeah, see later bye.” as Hannah hanged up her phone.
HANNAH STORY. She grabbed a taxi going home, as the music plays she looks outside her window, the beautiful sights and the green trees, the hustling and buzzling of cars in the streets, the street vendors, the pedestrians and the new people Hannah met on her travel, gives her comfort. Five years ago, she graduated from Harvard University, she had a Master degree of International Law- Major in Marketing and Economics. Together with Michael her bestfriend since pre-school years, they both know that it is a wrong idea to engage after graduating from college, but Hannah agreed to get engaged to Charles Howe, her college boyfriend. Hannah is aware that Charles is already enlisted to the Air force going to Syria after graduation, but still Hannah accepted the proposal because she is in love with this man. Hannah’s parents could not do anything but to agreed. Hannah sighed as she remember how painful to be left behind by a love one without a proper closure or even goodbye. So she was in pain as she remember Yun Lee story.
YUN LEE STORY, he is now a star, his career is already peaked. He won many award as a new young artist. He got many projects, movies, shows, endorsements and many other opportunities that a brand new young artists didn’t have. But one thing he did not leave, his love for music. He started his career as a musician from a boy band group as a Leader, and from there, many noticed his good looks and charisma, how he handled himself and his career. As many people notice his potential to stardom, many girls had followed him. She got involve in one girl, he fall in love with. At the peaked of his career controversy came up, the girl allegedly get beaten by him, harassments, verbal abuse and many other accusation that defamed Yun Lee’s name in the industry. He used all his money to fight to the court but no one comes into his favor. The girl sued him again for another claim that he is the father of her baby but soon in the news it was been miscarriage because she was beaten by him. At this point , all his projects, albums, endorsement and concert has been cancelled due to all this allegation. All were lies and he was proven innocent after. Case closed. The case been subside after he paid all the damages that has been filed for him, but the damaged that has been done to his career and in his life cannot be undone. Five years has passed. After years of serving from the military, he came back to restore his career. Thanks to all his friends who stayed beside him during his darkest hour. Truly, time heals everything.
” You look good!” Hannah air kiss Yun Lee on his cheeks upon seeing him. ” Oh, that’s how she greet Michael, every time they saw each other,” Yun smiled awkwardly. ” Then, what about us?,” asked by Yun Lee’s friends, so Hannah hugged everyone as they reached out their hands towards her. ” Wow. you guys are amazing,” said Hannah as she fluently speaks in Korean. Everyone stared at her,” You speak our language?’ asked Mimi one of the band member. ” Yes!” Hannah replied. ” Lucky, we speak good things about you.” said Mimi. And everyone laughed out loud in agreement.
“How did you meet Michael? Is it hard for a long distance relationship?” asked Dehua, Yun Lee’s bodyguard. ” What?” Hannah laughed. ” Are you guy’s thinking that me and my bestfriend are lovers?, Ew! No way! He is my bestfriend okay. He is engaged two years ago, his girlfriend who is a Canadian and is working right now in England as an International Lawyer,’ explained Hannah. “Michael and I are business partner since grade 5. He is a very loyal friend. Now you know why I speak your language fluently because I have him as my mentor. He is a very good friend of mine, I don’t keep friends beside my bed,” everyone laughed and agreed to Hannah.
” Nice meeting you everybody. Thanks for the good time.” Hannah waved goodnight to everyone. ‘What’s your plan tomorrow?” Yun Lee broke his silence. Hannah still quiet, panting her heart as she seated next to Yun Lee. ” Hey, are you ok?” aske Yun Lee. ” You’re so quiet,” as he stop the car by the riverside of Han river.” Oh, sorry. Why did we stop here?” her heart is racing rapidly. Yun Lee now is also quiet, his hands are getting cold and his feet is freezing though it was not cold. “Ha Yun Lee! Thanks for the nice view.” Hannah started. ” I am glad you’re happy tonight.” said Yun awkwardly, as he remember his cousin story about what happens to Hannah’s engagement. “Charles is missing for a month before he will come home for the wedding, after that; they were traced, they were released after negotiations. But unfortunately, their car went exploded during their travel because of the bomb. He died before he got home, that’s why she was shattered. Please take good care of her while she’s here.” asked Michael seriously.
” Can we go home now?” ask Hannah. ” It’s getting cold, I don’t want you to get cold, it will affect your beautiful voice.” said Hannah jokingly, as they walked together in the parking lot. As they get inside the car they can’t avoid to glance each other. There is a great silence. Hearing their own rushing heart to each other. But no one is talking. Hannah just looking outside the window, looking at the lights on the bridge, the cars that are passing by while they are driving at the long bridge of Han river. While Yun Lee can’t figure out what’s happening to his chest, it seems like there’s a lot of needles that pinching every beat of his heart. The faster he drove, the harder his breath to catch. His heart wanted to burst. ” We’re here.” Hannah breaks the silence as they approached the curve side, finally their eyes met. Hannah smiled. ” You’re sweating are you okay?” concerned Hannah.” I’m fine. Don’t worry, just get inside.” Yun Lee get out from the car, He embraced Hannah so tight, that he doesn’t want her to let go. Hannah air kiss goodbye to Yun Lee and she get inside the house.

Have you ever than this thinking? What should a woman do after they reach the age if 40? Some of them thinks about midlife crisis, and some wanted to begin their life when they reach 40’s. Funny things aside, I was wondering too. I thought when I will reach this age it will changes me, but there is not much to change except for getting much of my weight. Yes, I am ! And this time instead of avoiding them I might think of a solution to prevent them or I might say delaying them to happen. Our mind is the battlefield. Our mindset should be redirected. Today I re-blog this article of mine, because I wrote this when I started my blog but seems no one noticed it. At that time I really didn’t know what to do. But things seems going on the right direction, so lets begin to …………
1. SHAPE UP. We need to get back in shape in order to create the other things that set before us. Stop reasoning about the things we cannot do, but we need to start doing things that we hate, like waking up early in the morning, instead of being lazy start a little bit of walking then stretching, avoid eating unhealthy and start to watch your food intake. Read books and magazines it will energize your brain. Take vitamins and minerals. Don’ t be stubborn
2. SAVE UP. Income is everything! Start saving your future if you don’t have any.Its not too late. Whether we like it or not we are facing retirement. Don’t spend money that’s not on your account it will stress you out.Do not always pray for breakthrough, pray for financial stability and prosperity.
3. BE INFORMED. Learn new skills, new things, upgrade yourself. Attend seminars, go back to school if you can, attend gathering and fellowship, if you don’t have friends go to church you will find one. Don’t avoid people, learn a new trends, updates your status. Facebook is good but try also Instagram, Twitter and create your own blog .Go to the library and read books, watch the latest news.
4. BE CREATIVE. Don’t stop! The world is too big. Go travel. Life is too short to waste it all. Begin your life with a good perspective. Start a new things, kick out negativity and replace with new mindset. Being creative is not expensive just put it into practice to make it perfect.
Today is new day, a new season to begin with, let us recreate ourselves into a more meaningful way, always celebrate the good things that are yet to come . Let’s finished strong!
A LOVE LETTER TO THE SOUL
“ The Lord wraps Himself in light as with a garment; He stretches out the heavens like a tent”- Psalm 104:2
A LOVE LETTER’S APPLICATION
“The night is nearly over, day is almost here. Let us stop doing the things that belongs to the dark, and let us take up weapons for fighting in the light. Let us conduct ourselves properly, as people who live in the light of the day- no orgies or drunkenness, no immorality or indecency, no fighting or jealousy. But take up the weapons of the Lord Jesus Christ, and stop paying attention to your sinful nature and satisfying it’s desire.” Romans 13:12-14
Well, that question came to my mind as well. Just like you, I am fascinated of doing things on my own. I like to have my own time with my self. I like to have my own time with my family, with my children. I want to have a vacation that I do not need to deal with my boss when I come back to work. The “ I want word “, in reality does exist, but it requires a lot of hard work before you make it happen. Yeah girl, you really need to discipline yourself before you can make it. Before you can make things happen. Struggle is real!
