Support Your Tribe & Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day!

International Women's Day

The past couple of years have been all about the grind and showing up for yourself. But sometimes in the midst of the grind and showing up for ourselves, we forget to show up for those who show up for us. I know I am cheered on and supported by some amazing women who are doing life just like me. Thier support is a bonus to their friendship. I am not owed anything from them but friendship. But they still take some time to read my blog, share my posts or purchase from my shop. And for that, I am truly thankful. But beyond being thankful, I think I owe it to those who show up for me to show up for them.

Motivational Quotes When You Need a Little Push

Motivational Quotes

We all need a little push sometimes. And lately, I’ve needed a big push. I’m not sure what’s going on with me. Actually, I do. Starting the new year sick really threw me off my game, and I’ve been playing catch up since. I love order and schedules, so not really being on a schedule has really been difficult for me. And playing catch up is exhausting and overwhelming. When trying to get back on track, there are few ways I pump myself up to get back on track, reading or listening to a self-development/business podcast is usually my go-to. But sometimes I come across motivational quotes that get me all the way together. So, I wanted to share with you all a few motivational quotes by some amazing Black women (it is Black History Month after all) that will get you back on track and ready to take over the world.

Monday Motivation: Don’t Stop! This is Only The Beginning


I’ve been thinking a lot about the New Year and how often this can be a discouraging time, especially if you have big goals. It’s easy to feel like you aren’t doing enough. Sometimes it is difficult to see how your day to day actions impact your larger goals. We know we should be doing these small things. Sending the emails. Doing the research. Creating the content. But when results aren’t immediately seen, some people like to turn around or throw in the towel. I just want us to keep going. To not expect every day to be filled with big breaks, and for us to honor the small things that help us achieve our big goals.

The Key to Self-Improvement


Happy New Year! I pray 2018 is starting off wonderful for everyone. I know that if you are reading this you are an ambitious goal setter, which means that you are more than likely working on how to make 2018 amazing.  There are tons of things we can do to make sure that we are successful in the new year, but  I believe the one thing that is essential to our success is self-reflection. How can we grow into the person we want to be if we never reflect on who we currently are? So, for me the key to growth and self-improvement is self-reflection.

Long Time, No Blog

This post is one of my first post after some time away. Life got in the way, and after life got out the way summer break for the kiddos happened. Between trips to the playground and making, what feels like, a million snacks a day, it’s been a bit difficult to sit and write. But I’m back, and I missed it sooooo much! I truly enjoy writing about God, goals, and self-development. Most, if not all the things I write on Love, Jenell are things I’ve personally overcome or currently battling. So, this space is very special to me.

Monday Motivation: Don’t Give Up!

Monday Motivation

Have you ever been in an orientation or a class and the speaker asks everyone to look to their left and right, and they then let the audience know that one of these people won’t be here at the end of the program or school year? The truth is people throw in the towel every day. For some people, it’s difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. And for some people, God has given you a dream and shown you the vision he has for your life and you know exactly what the end should look like. However, discouragement begins to creep in when the present and the future look vastly different. You have seen the vision and you are working towards it, but the present isn’t bearing any fruit. When the present doesn’t look how you imagine it would, you may want to quit. You may begin to question if you are in the right place or making the right decisions. You may question God and ask him why things aren’t easier. And some people may quit. If you are in the space of question where you are and where you want to be, I pray that you hold on to the end.
