Dear Nikiya,

      Honey, please do this for me when you get done reading this reminder!


  1. Love your long legs

  2. Keep smiling

  3. Take more pictures of yourself

  4. Stop thinking and begin dreaming

  5. Be cocky when necessary

  6. Uplift yourself

  7. Take a break

  8. Reward your damn self because no one else will

  9. Don’t wait for tomorrow to achieve your dreams because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed

  10. Stop worrying about other people’s opinions all the time!


I encourage you all to think about 10 or more habits you should break and/or create to promote healthy living. We have to take better care of ourselves and that starts by knowing ourselves.
