ImageOne of our biggest downfalls is an unhealthy comparison to other people. We want to be like them, look like them, and achieve what they have achieved. Now, don’t misunderstand. There’s nothing wrong with healthy ambition as long as that ambition is to be your BEST YOU! It’s also important to have mentors in our lives who encourage us to bring out our talents and to face our fears head on.

You will never be 6 feet tall, so stop hating your five foot frame and go buy some slamm’in heels and call it a day. You CAN however, be an awesome teacher, artist, mother or entrepreneur. Oh, here’s one…You will never be a size 4 if you weren’t born with the body frame to support a size 4. You CAN, once again, choose clothes that fit and flatter your body and choose to be healthy through good nutrition and physical activity. Bottom line is you need to decide today that you are going to be happy in your own skin. Trust me, I’m preach’in to the choir because I have to tell myself this every day.

Building self esteem requires daily doses of TLC. TREAT yourself right by removing the negativity from your life (people who tear you down, destructive habits that endanger your health). LOVE yourself the way you are right now. If there’s something you desire to change that will add to the quality of your life and that you CAN change, then go for it. If you need that mentor to remind you that you CAN make this change then give her/him a call! Lastly, CHOOSE to be happy. I know this sounds cliche but it’s vital. Despite the moods of other people and despite bad situations, we still get to choose how to react. Just say, “This may not be what I expected or even what I want right now, but I am going to have a good attitude about it so that if there is anything that I can do to make the situation better, I will already be in the right frame of mind to make it happen. Either way, I am going to enjoy this day.”

There’s a healthy comparison to others where we are working on bringing out the best in ourselves. There’s also an unhealthy comparison where we’d rather be someone else, and that will simply never happen my friend. So, start giving yourself some TLC and see how much you start to like who you see in the mirror. Once again, I’m taking my own advice. Have a great day:)

BB nmvI love the concept behind N.M.V.- loving yourself the way God made you and valuing your uniqueness. N.M.V. isn’t about being skinny. It’s about being healthy and fit spiritually, emotionally, and physically. In 2013 my goal is to share N.M.V. with as many people as possible through words of encouragement, helpful resources to aid with fitness goals as well as emotional health, and through video testimonials from those who subscribe to N.M.V. and want to share their triumphs, struggles and just encourage others who may be having a sad day. So, here’s to a new and exciting 2013 for N.M.V.!!!

Haven’t been feeling well the last five days. It looks like I caught that nasty stomach flu that’s been going around. So, I’m home from work resting, taking my medicine,and blogging. I soooo HATE OTC medicine! Give me natural remedies any day! I read that honey boosts your immune system, so hot green tea with honey is what I’m having:)
Stay healthy my friends ;

Image I’ve been going through a mango craze the last two months! I’ve been off white sugar for more than a month now and feeling FANTASTIC! I’ve also replaced my sweet tooth with fruits like chilled grapes, melons, bananas, and yes…MANGOS:)

Try this spicy mango salad recipe:


  • 4 medium mangos – peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place the mango cubes into a serving bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the lime juice and olive oil. Season with red pepper flakes, cilantro, shallots, salt and pepper. Whisk briefly, then pour over the mangos. Stir to coat, then cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to blend the flavors before serving.
