Life After 40: I am Enough featuring Sincerely Silver

Hi Beautifuls, if you are familiar with my previous Life After 40 blogs, then you know I have struggled after the separation from my ex husband.  For years I lived in self-doubt and fear.  Choosing to accept the crumbs given from my then spouse. Choosing to not let anyone in because I thought I would never be good enough.  After half a decade, I finally was able to see I am Enough.

So when Sincerely Silver said they were sending me one of their classic everyday necklaces, I went directly to the website and the first necklace I saw was “I Am Enough” It must have been a sign.  After overcoming and healing from that broken relationship and knowing that I AM Enough, what better reminder of the affirmation than this necklace.  Immediately I asked “will you send me this necklace” and they did.  I love the simplicity of the lovely sterling silver necklace and what it represents to me. #neverforget #iamenough

Thank you Sincerely Silver!!!

Life After 40: Thick of It

 

I wanted to record this video a year ago but life happened.  Plus the meaning of the song then is not the same to me now.  A lot has transpired in the past year which enabled me to bring this video to my Beautifuls today.

I was asked what was the purpose of the video.  Well for one it was fun.  Two,  I was able to pay homage to the Queen:  Mary J Blige!!! Her music has resonated so much with me.  From What’s the 411 and still to this day.  Third, Thick of It represents a moment in my life which was perfect for my “Life After 40”.  The moment when REALITY hit me…and the  RELEASE which followed.

Basically,  I realized I did too much to keep my marriage.  I was fighting a losing battle.  It should not be this hard.  Everything was one sided.  Nothing has changed after 5 years.  I know my worth.  I deserved better.  Time to cut that string.  Time to let go!!!  Time to move on!!!

Everything happens for a reason and now was the right time to bring my vision to life.  Enjoy Beautifuls!

Special thank you to Andrew Westmoreland @drewwest_press for editing the video!!!
