Courage is getting up and doing

What your heart desires.

Courage is a fire that burns

Brightly in your eyes.

Courage is the power to stand up for

Yourself without help from others.

Have the courage of a Lion and Roar baby, Roar

Until you Soar into new heights.


Courage is loving yourself enough to

Know you deserve better.

Courage is knowing the risks but,

Doing it anyway.

Courage is remaining true to

Who you are and

What you believe in.

Courage is saying “I will survive”

Even with tears in your eyes.

Courage is keeping your eyes on the prize.

Courage is feeling in your soul

That you will rise.


Courage is hearing the sound of success in your ears.

Courage is trusting yourself and God

Knowing you’ll be guided through

No matter what you do.

Courage is what we all have within us

We must use it

For it is necessary like a shoe.

I carry my courage with pride.




An Outrageous Ambassador

Do you realise you impact your community, your colleagues, your family, your friends and the world?

Do you know your thoughts, ideas, behaviour, clothes, and body language have a ripple effect and influence the atmosphere?

Do you understand how special you are?

Yes, you honey are an Outrageous Ambassador!

You’re probably thinking “Who me?” or “No way” Yes, I’m talking to you, the one reading this blog.  Everything about you is distinctive and beautiful. You represent your gender, your race, your country, your school, your employer, your family, your neighbourhood. Your voice, your accent, your features, are like a thumbprint they identify you.  They are what make you memorable.

How do I know? Well, I’m talking from personal experience.  In London most people can tell I’m American from my southern little twang accent. Others can tell I have Caribbean heritage and some people know I’m a woman of faith without me ever mentioning religion.  At times it can be annoying or unfair to be type casted but, I am over it.  It is what is.  Somethings are not worth worrying about. 

Whenever you enter a room people sense your presence, your vibe, your essence. Whether you want to be an Ambassador or not is non-negotiable.  So, get over it and be the best spokesperson you can.  Represent yourself, your beliefs, and where you’re from with intense pride.  You are an Outrageous Ambassador.
