“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45
As I sat in devotion this morning I chose to focus on this particular scripture that I had received from a friend. I found it fitting as everyone seems to be living rather spontaneously. We live in a society which makes everything available at our fingertips so we have lost the virtue of patience. The few of us whom still enjoy shopping away from our computers, When we walk into a store we don’t expect to encounter a line or have someone wait on us. We are microwaving most of our experiences and as a result the relationships we form are in quantity however not of high quality.
We often need to stop and think do we need 5000 friends on social media or do we need friends whom we actually know and can relate to? Friends whom are supportive of us should be the only ones we need in our circles. It is good to have a global connection and relationships with others but it’s even greater when we have a personal relationship with God. The word of God promises to bless us and pour into us, God gave his only begotten son for us. Yet we often wonder why we experience the struggles that we do and think all is against us. As believers we ought to encourage and nourish our faith so that we can hear the voice of God. Know that while we are being impatient God is working diligently for us, it may not be when we expect things to happen for us but in the time that God deems it right for us. Think about it without a test we would have no testimony and without being a victim we would not be a victor. God loves victories and that’s why we encounter struggles so that by overcoming them we are able to share our victories and make a believer of the non-believer.

It has been a minute since I have sat down to write my blog, I feel as if I have done a disservice to my followers however within the last year I have come to realize that life happens and I won’t be able to please everyone.
I have often thought of this moment when I would blog no more, I have had the pictures yet three months later I still haven’t completed the final blog. Today I wake up with the initiative to post my final blog. This has been a phenomenal experience for me to open myself up to the world from the introvert that I am. I discovered that I talk a lot through pictures and as a result I am often misunderstood.
I know my passion lies with working with children and families to ensure that they are thriving to their fullest potential after experiencing trauma and as a result I am ready to walk in my purpose which won’t allot much time for pictures and the liberty to write informative and fashionable pieces as I would love.
on that note I must say blogging is an unprecedented experience which has enriched my life in many ways from, being able to think outside of the box, considering how someone may perceive my outfit or fashion statement, writing about interesting fashion statements or controversial pieces, being ready to communicate with strangers and share myself openly oh yes there is so much more that would take forever to write. Most importantly I learned that I love to shop and shopping is an integral part of my life….sigh!!!!
on that note I wish to say so long I am extremely gleeful that I was able to partake in this experience and impacted the lives of many through fashion, pictures and writing. An unprecedented experience that I wouldn’t change for anything. However, I must choose my time wisely, pour into my calling and become the social change that I want to see. You are able to stay in touch with me via Instagram or Twitter @simply jyune or via Facebook @simply jyune dynamic styles. All good things must come to an end, wish me blessings as I embark on my journey.
Hot enough for you? It is too hot for me I feel the need for a vacation coming up. Once per month I pledge to wear red to promote Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association to encourage healthy heart awareness. As a child I often heard of people dying from a broken heart and I couldn’t understand the emotional heart. After my Dad had Chronic Heart Failure I was forced to educate myself and nourish him back to good health. As a result I wear red to promote heart health and I practice a healthy heart lifestyle. You too can practice a healthy heart lifestyle by eating heart healthy foods that prevent heart disease, exerciseand manage your relationships and emotions healthily.

It seems like yesterday that I was introduced to the lovely Miss Jasmine Crowe at an award show honoring Toya Wright for her philanthropic work in the Black Community. I can’t believe it was a year ago I vowed to work with Jasmine in giving of my time and services as a parent liaison or mental health counselor to children. Unfortunately, I had just started my PhD classes and my time was limited with my other volunteer activities with the American Red Cross and Dress for Success Atlanta. However as time would have it Jasmine is hosting her award show again and this time she is honoring Tamika Raymond and other philanthropists and organizations for their diligent work and support in our community.
Posed with the lovely Philanthropist Miss Jasmine Crowe
Unfortunately I missed out on most of the award ceremony (flat tire) but I still showed up and better yet I now have my schedule worked out wherein I can start giving back to our community and pouring into children who can and will grow up to be like me or achieve more than me.
Jasmine and some of the powerful moments of the night. I was quite impressed that Marley is also a philanthropist I can only say well done again Jasmine and congratulations to Marley.

Well if haven’t learned anything the most valuable thing I pride myself on knowing is Philanthropy~the art of giving back and pouring into others is a blessing! a feeling of accomplishment in itself.
At the end of the night I was glad I came out to support and solidify my promise to give back.
Hey Loves! With so many people focusing on health and fitness I wanted to take it a step further and focus on the “heart”….yes the major muscular organ which pumps blood throughout the blood vessels to various parts of our body. To do so I teamed up with Heart Health coach and relationship expert “Sharon Reid” to network and teach heart health.
To kick off the first event we focused on the heart as an organ of spiritual, emotional and physical aspects and how to protect or guard your heart because the three parts can be affected by heart disease and other ailments.
The spiritual heart is non physical it is your inner treasure the center of your feelings, which is located to the right side of your physical heart.
The emotional heart is the deep emotions that you feel for or towards others. It is the center of wmotion and is located to the left of the physical heart. Being receptive to your emotional state it experience s many feelings from joy to grief. So any kind of disappointment, death of a loved one, rejection is stressful on the emotional heart.
The physical heart is our actual heart which pumps the blood throughout our body and is affected by every spiritual or emotional feelings that the body experiences. When you are excited the heartbeat pumps more forcefully and when we are stressed or disappointed it wreaks havoc by stunning the heart with extreme shock.
We ought to take care of our hearts by ensuring that we are balancing our emotions, eating healthy and exercising. It takes maintenance to keep your heart healthy. A happy heart keeps you happy and keeps your heart healthy.
