Premium Gas ONLY!

Have you ever heard of the term, “Gas me up?” According to Urban Dictionary, it was first penned by the modern day philosopher, Drake. Where it originated from is not important, but amongst my circle of friends, we use that term to compliment and overwhelmingly encourage one another. Now, I said overwhelmingly encourage for a reason. When we…

You Matter

There’s been a lot going on in the world lately and I wanted to say…. You matter and you are valued. We talk a lot about life lessons, beast mode, and getting things done. I believe that to be true. But, sometimes we just have and stop to remember the precious gift that life is….

Confetti or not, here we come

Who doesn’t love Confetti? This week’s blog post is going to be another short, yet impactful one! Do you remember that little book of quotes I told you about? Well, I pulled it out again today to find another good one: “I’ve decided that the stuff falling through the cracks is confetti and I’m throwing a…

What’s Your Benchmark?

Can I trust you with a secret? Okay good. I figured, but I wanted to be sure: I don’t always feel inspired, motivated or encouraged. Some days I’m busy, tired, and just want to kick back and mind my business. I know, shocking right? “But Vannesia, you have a motivational blog…” Yeah I know. But…

Here’s a statistic I read recently and was compelled to share: 92 Percent of People Don’t Achieve Their Goals. Let’s help grow that 8%. Whether…

Bug or Windshield?

A couple of weeks ago, I was in Gulf Shores, Alabama and walked into the cutest shop attached to a restaurant. It was full with wall art, homemade jewelry and all things associated with a “mom and pop shop.” I love anything with positive words and I ended up picking up this little pocket-sized book…

What’s Your Sign?

No, that blog title wasn’t a pick up line, but it is the topic of this week’s blog post! Let me tell you what I did a couple of weeks ago that completely caught me off guard. I was driving along, minding my own business, and I took the wrong exit. Look, now I know…

A Word From Dr. Suess

Today’s message is short and sweet – but just as impactful. This week, be encouraged to remain authentic and genuine in your workplace and relationships with others. Here’s a bit of encouragement to do so from one of my favorite Doctors (other than my sister), Dr. Seuss :   Today you are you! That is…

Less Dimetapp and More Robitussin

Now, all through February, my blogger friends have been bringing the FIRE with their guest blog posts. How do I know that? Because ya’ll have told me! I get the emails and comments…and so do they. So, thanks for showing them how the #MOXIE tribe gets down! If you remember, Mariah Cole kicked it off…
