So, let’s talk about intentionally creating the life we truly love…

Have you ever found yourself struggling to find and/or do what it is that you want in life?

More often than not, we tend to forget to ask ourselves “What is it that I want?” because we’re either so fixated or being held down by what society tells us we should want.

We’ve been living a life so rooted in doing things other people chose for us; hence, we stress over the smallest issues, getting discouraged and frustrated when we don’t get results in a month.

But I know, we all know—that isn’t the kind of life we all want to live and age by.

We all want to be happy. We all want to enjoy life. We all want to be able to actually create a life we love.

And we are! We are indeed capable. We can actually live the life we love.

But how you ask?

Notable Quotes:

“You can actually live the life you love. You could be well on your way in the next 90 days. You may not be there because sometimes you have to recognize there is a lifelong journey. But you can see tangible improvements in your life in three to six months of just being intentional about, first of all, figuring out what you want, and then making a plan to go after what you want and then actually doing it. Once you start to make those decisions that are aligned with what you actually want for your life, life’s good.” – Tiara Nicole Riley

“If black women were more happy with their lives and black men were more happy with their lives, maybe black love would be happier. Like, if we showed up to relationships happy, if we showed up to the relationship whole, living a life we love, if we got there first and then went into relationships, how much better would those relationships be? How much better would those parents be?” – Tiara Nicole Riley

“You have the chance to get it right the first time. Go after it now, while you don’t have bills, while mommy is still helping you with XYZ. This is your chance. Go for it now.” – Tiara Nicole Riley

“Our definition of what’s best for our child is not always what our child wants. And I think as a parent, we have to find that balance between allowing them the freedom to make their own decisions about what they want for their life and then helping them do that in the most strategic way.” – Tiara Nicole Riley

“I don’t think it’s really and truly ‘I don’t know’. I think it’s rooted in ‘I don’t feel like I have the autonomy to do what I want or ‘I don’t know how to do what I want and do so profitably.’” – Tiara Nicole Riley
