Getting ready for 2018 – BOSSChallenge Sign Up today

Getting ready for 2018 – BOSSChallenge Sign Up today

My oh my has this year gone by so quickly! I can still remember this time last year when I took part in challenge 100 and launched, like it was just last week. But hey, if the year went by very quickly, it means that the year was a good year for you. We know this from the times we had so much fun, time just seems to fly by like a rolling tide. Of course, the fact that we are near the end of 2017, this means that we need to start getting prepared for the next year that is set to come in a matter of days.
And I was thinking, if I had the power to write my future for the year 2018, how and what would I like to happen? I think it would be a great way to set myself up and prepare myself with goals that would make 2018 interesting and successful.

Here are two things to get yourself prepped!

1) #BOSSChallenge100

I know it’s a little later than I had hoped but the BOSS Challenge will be starting on the 4th December (basically in a few days). If you’re a little unfamiliar about this challenge I will quickly brief you on it in less words than my original post (click here to read more about the BOSS Challenge). The BOSS Challenge or now #BOSSChallenge100 is a 100-day positivity cleanse for females to feel and be empowered. Each day, each BOSSer is required to apply at least one of the BOSS attributes, to encourage their personal development. These are Beautiful, Optimistic/Opportunist, Self-Assured, Sister. During these 100 days you will be either in contact with other BOSSers or receive frequent email notifications from me to keep the move going.

If you would like to take part, sign up TODAY by sending me an email thaliebrown@gmail.com or find me on Facebook @ThalieBrown. Don’t worry it’s FREE.

2) Vision Board

I really enjoyed making my vision board. I felt like a little kid literally tearing magazines and newspapers apart and sticking images onto card board… Almost like having an Argos catalogue and, sticking and cutting everything up for your dream house. This year I’m coming up prepared with a better and more concise plan  for 2018 (Not to say that the vision board for 2017 wasn’t too realistic enough). With this board, I hope to set myself the right goals that will take me one step closer to where I want to be in life, and I’d suggest that you do the same for yourself too, so that we can all celebrate a successful 2018!

Oh and yes!

And maybe a third point to add…

I have a new travel vlog that’s up on my YouTube channel! Just click here to view.

That’s it from me.

Transitioning into 2017

Transitioning into 2017

Happy New Year Pink Shaders,

It’s fair to say that like any other year, there have been some highs and lows. We have seen great legends pass away, the rise of in justice to sexuality, race and even gender. The divide amongst humanity was the most popular headline throughout 2016.

A non- factual election, which saw the 2 oldest presidential candidate of a powerful nation use social media and tit-for-tat strategy to pounce on their opponent, instead of elaborating on their strategies to help the environment, unify communities, develop the economy and the list goes on.

But then in 2016, there were some great moments. The year saw some amazing successes, the rise in female empowerment,  Black Girl Magic and world records being broken. Above all the greatest lesson to top it all off is that you can beat all obstacles, regardless of your qualification (this is a reference to sports not just politics).

Now that we are in 2017, everyone is trying to live up to their new years resolution and that’s great. But are you coming prepared with the correct mentality? The issues you faced in 2016 did not just magically erase itself as soon as it hit midnight. Oh no! So ask yourself, what struggles, moods or perceptions did I have in 2016 that still require a better understanding or transformation in me? What ideas did I have during 2016 that I never got to pursue because of lame excuses like time, motivation or resources? I say this because we are all born with the same starter pack in life- 24hrs, a brain to think and our body. Now think of ways to improve 2016 self in 2017. That way you are being more realistic with yourself and  you’ll feel more in charge of goals you hope to achieve, bare in mind this will encourage you to have a positive mindset to living a better life.

For 2017, it is my hope for all of us to come together in peace. I know a lot people are living in fear, especially for those targeted by some of these new appointed leaders and their capability destruct. We need to work as a supportuve community and become more educated and willing to understand differences. I also hope that 2017 will bring great self- development, especilly for those who had a rough time through 2016.

It’s time we make 2017 a good year. Not for our own reasons but for all. I know for myself, I want to see more confidence in me.  I have spent a little more than  what was due, being shy and scared to reach out for things that I was scared to let down.
