What wisdom doesn’t teach you, rock bottom will. ~ @lucindacross 🙌🏾
Man, ain’t that the truth. Let me take you back to 2005 when I was a single mom struggling to feed my kids and took a wrong turn which lead me to having a warrant out for my arrest for writing a bad check. I sat in Atlanta county jail for over 30 days and was eventually picked up and extradited in handcuffs on a filthy bus to Cleveland. It took 2 weeks to get there. In route, they’d stop in a couple cities where I’d stay in a cell with 5 other women, sleeping on concrete and 1 toilet for days. Can you imagine? Yep, I hit rock bottom.🙋🏽♀️
It was then that I made a promise to myself, that when I made it out of this I was changing my life completely.💪🏾
I returned home to Atlanta but with a record and it was hard finding a job, so I decided to use my God given gifts and create my own. 2 weeks later I saw Nicole Bitchie’s Blog and decided to create The Dirty Peach and it quickly became one of the hottest blogs out at the time. And I’ve been creating my own job ever since.🍑
All this to say, don’t get it twisted... I’m cute but tough.. don’t try meeee. Jk... but no seriously, everyone is an “ex” something. And if I can push through, so can you! You don’t have to be ashamed of your past. Therefore, release yourself from your own prison and don’t ever let your history dictate your future, hunni. Yes, it helped mold me into the solid woman I am today but I don’t ever have to look back.. well, unless I’m sharing my story to inspire others like I am today.
You are free.🤸🏽♀️
Keep it movin, baby. Keep it movin.
I recorded a video a few years back about it while on my 3 month hiatus in AZ. You can watch the full video on my YouTube channel.

One thing I really enjoy about being home is using the kitchen and everything in it, including the almond extract in these oats. Before I did my workout this morning I made Berry Almond Oatmeal with oats, almond milk, almond extract, mashed banana, frozen blackberries, and blueberries #oatmealartist#morningmotivation#oatmeal

I may have slept for three days, not eaten solid food in four days and lost 5kg but I am back at last 🙌🏼 After picking up a particularly nasty virus on the plane out to Dubai (which had me totally wiped out, KO’d on the bathroom floor lol) it developed in to this delightful little throat infection that threatened to ruin my holiday 🙅🏽♀️ Fortunately I had the wonderful nurse @katieforbes looking after me, plus some actual doctors who have prescribed me about 63839474 different drips, pills, sprays and gargles. I am essentially rattling.
Happy Thursday everyone 😘 hope your week has been a little more successful than mine 🌝💕

I’m loving my new car diffuser 😍😍! It has little lava stones in it and you just drop a couple drops of oil on them and your car smells amazing and it looks so cute! @woodandoils is where you can get one. It takes a few weeks since she makes each one individually. .
Bergamot is my oil of choice in there this week. It helps calm my brain when life is feeling overwhelming and crazy. The worship music helps too. Only uplifting music in the #momvan. Stay warm today, friends!! ❄️❄️❄️
Me encanta mi nuevo difusor de coche 😍😍! Tiene pequeñas piedras de lava en él y solo se les cae un par de gotas de aceite y su auto huele increíble y se ve tan lindo! @woodandoils es donde puedes obtener uno. Se necesitan algunas semanas desde que ella hace cada una individualmente. .
Bergamota es mi aceite de elección allí esta semana. Ayuda a calmar mi cerebro cuando la vida se siente abrumadora y loca. La música de adoración también ayuda. Solo música edificante en el #momvan. ¡Quédate caliente hoy, amigos!
