Jada’s Words of Wisdom

On ending friendships
“Dissolving friendships can be devastating, but even though you may no longer be friends…it’s
“Dissolving friendships can be devastating, but even though you may no longer be friends…it’s all right to keep loving her. You don’t have to make your heart stop wishing her the best.”

On healing
“I am learning that the key to life is not about how to be closed and numb while expecting thee emotional benefits of being open, but learning how to become a healer of ones own soul in order to TRUST that you are safe within your openness:)”

On staying focused
“Today, I had to do an inventory on all the things I give focus to during my day. I realized that I allow a lot of people and circumstances to steal my focus from things that are more of a priority to me than what I am CHOOSING to focus on. I gotta change how and what I focus on! What are you focusing on for the majority of your day? Are you truly focusing on things that are important to you?”

On having it all
“To the young women who often ask me if a woman can have a career, family, love and herself in one lifetime,” wrote Jada. “My answer is yes. Far too often family, marriage and love have been considered enemies to a woman’s autonomy. Although it’s not easy, nothing of any meaning in this life ever is. The only enemy here are your ideas of how things should or should not be. The moment YOU have the courage to step out of the paradigm that you have been told is acceptable and discover the paradigm that is conducive to your happiness, you will see that you truly can…have it all. This takes experimentation and patience without the input of those who are…fearful;) A woman’s power can and will deliver all she needs the moment she decides to wield it.”

On practicing gratitude
The one thing I have learned is that abundance wears many faces, and when we focus on what we don’t have versus focusing on what we do have, we miss out on the blessings that have been given to us. I know you are saying,”That’s easy for you to say Jada, you have everything.” Let’s be clear, NO ONE has everything and we all imagined SOMETHING different for ourselves at some point. But… we mature and step out of our own narccisissm and learn to practice gratitude. Learning to be grateful is the journey for every human being on this planet, no matter WHO we are. And when we are grateful…THAT’S when we have it all. When we practice gratitude… happiness is inevitable.

On trusting yourself
“I have learned to trust that I will learn and become stronger from my mistakes. I have even learned to welcome and enjoy them. Mistakes don’t create regret for me when I have been courageous enough to go for it. I have only regretted the moments I was too afraid to go for what I really wanted because of my fear to fail. For me, life is about creating an art of how to get out of the holes we fall into, not about creating an art of not falling into them. A life ain’t worth living if your not going to live. Trust yourself to fail and to win. Trust yourself to live the life you truly desire.”

Her recipe for happiness
- A wave of courage with a dash of “I don’t care what you think.”

Dysfunctional ass

I want love … with my dysfunctional ass… Like one moment I want him to adore me like he’s never adored another and in the next moment I want to be left completely, totally alone. I want to put him on a shelf and take him off at my leisure.and for my pleasure … how selfishly twisted is that ish!?

Moody Monday

I’ve been screaming at myself this morning. Emotions, hormones all over the place. I try to be kind to everyone, especially myself but today I’m giving myself the blues.

A Day in the Life of Brown…

I’m at a crossroads… in such a new kind of way. I’m about to take on a huge responsibility and I’m hoping I made the right decision. The uncertainty is causing me to overeat. I’m going to grab hold of this uneasy feeling and proceed with confidence that this choice is exactly my destiny.
