My view comes from a review of my own Life.



11 Ways to Start Being the Best You


11. Take accountability “own your shit”

When u come face to face with your faults, Own Them! Stop pacifying yourself about decisions you made or actions you took that made things difficult for you! Once something has happened, it’s better to forgive yourself and learn from it than to hold it in secretly thinking it will go away! Find it, own it, forgive yourself and MOVE FORWARD.


10. Write It Down 

Jot down your thoughts, think about what u want! What helps you relax? What do u like to do in your spare time that can take you to a place of peace? Are you creative? Do you need to vent! Write it down! Brainstorm for an outlet.


9. Meditation 

Rather you pray or do yoga, rather you sit in a room I prefer to meditate in the morning (before coffee)

With just your most precious thought! Be grateful for the air coming in and out your body! Be grateful to feel the ground under you. Take deep breaths to inhale the positive and exhale the negativity inside of you. When you're down, you can have a clear mind  and be able to go through your day in a more calm State of Mind!


8. Talk Good to Yourself

Instead of saying “IF I can”  OR “HOW CAN I“, replace it with “I am” and “I have” Or "I will". 

Speak what you you want into existence! For example,

I am beautiful! I have the power to make my own destiny! I will have this apartment,  I will be blessed 

I will be great!  My favorite is I am in Love with me! Speaking life into yourself and things you want to do can never go wrong.




3. Protect Your Peace

It is important to watch the people you let absorb your energy. It’s also important that don’t let someone drain your energy as well! Those people friend, family, stranger whoever they are; if ur not comfortable, or if they have a negative attitude around you! They always need you but Never there when u need them. If you’re arguing with a person or you only get along every once in a while STOP! Stop putting yourself in the situation that causes your peace to be provoked! You have so much more you can do beside letting someone kill your vibe! 


2. Surround yourself with positivity!

Go around people who can motivate you, who will uplift you and show you ways to succeed! You want to be around people that want to celebrate you and can give you advice when you need it but can also tell you when you're wrong without Dragging you through the mud to make them feel better! You want to be around like minded people.


1. Be a Blessing! 

Sometimes we take the smallest things for granted! Like dropping a penny on the ground, or throwing food away or clothes! It’s ok to have a heart! It’s ok to give back but don’t do it and brag about it because it won’t mean as much maybe even less than if you did something nice from the heart without speaking on it again!!! Do it because at any time and any moment you can be the one in need and those blessing that you gave can be the only thing standing between your help or your Demise!


Well this has been PoshPoints with some amazing tips on How to embody being the best Person you can be for yourself!! In ONE Of My FAVS VOICE

“If you Don’t Love yourself, HOW THE HELL YOU GOING TO LOVE SOME BODY ELSE??!!” – RuPaul


Till next time!!! -POSH

7. Drink Spring Water 

Staying hydrated is the answer to most of our problems Skin Not Glowing DRINK WATER! STUBBORN WEIGHT WON'T GO AWAY? DRINK WATER! Bladder infection? DRINK WATER!!

Replacing soda, and juice with spring or alkaline water will change your life. TRY IT!


6. Do it By Yourself 

Don’t limit the fun in your life because people won’t participate!! Go on that trip, See that movie, Take urself somewhere nice! It’s not embarrassing to do for yourself! It the main ingredient to self love!


5. Get Some Nature!

Take a walk even if it’s cold! Get some

Fresh air! God created the elements for us to enjoy! Listen to thunder and lightning, and Touch the grass! Listen to the earth! The only things that can save the earth is the people who live on it, but we have to love ourselves enough to know how to start fixing what we have been destroying for centuries!

4. Listen More Talk less!

People will say whatever, but when you listen and not answer without negative or positive reactions, you can see who you are dealing with! What you are dealing with! It is always better to figure out what is worth talking about or speaking on before u say anything that’s why it’s best to listen first and speak last!

Dioxins: The Facts about this Toxin in Tampons and Sanitary Pads

Feminine hygiene products are a fact of life for women. Most often, we use what our mothers used, rarely surveying the options, or the risks involved. But, as we discovered, there are risks. Conventional tampons and sanitary pads are bleached white using chlorine dioxide, which can be toxic. A woman will use as many as 17,000 tampons in her lifetime. Many are made out of a cotton and rayon blend, which must be bleached to get that clean white sterile look. While the EPA banned a more harmful bleaching process back in 1998, current elemental "chlorine-free" bleaching processes using chlorine dioxide still produce, albeit less, dioxins. The EPA's own research has concluded that dioxin exposure is linked with an increased cancer risk; and when you consider the delicate area where you're placing tampons, the cause for concern becomes even more heightened.

Role Models Selected

April Stoner Actress/Model

An ordained Prophetess chosen by God April Stoner, she is a mother, actress, model, inspirational speaker well loved and active in her community.


However, her life’s path to success and finding Christ has come with many challenges, beginning at the early age of thirteen. April’s mother envisioned her daughter becoming an actress/model at the age of twelve and began pursuing her daughter’s career, a career that April would soon rebel against. Her rebellious behavior would lead her to the streets and at the age of thirteen April was introduced to drugs. Over the next three years April would become a product of her environment, drinking alcohol, dealing drugs, sexually active, stealing cars, going to nightclubs and by age 16 April was experimenting with cocaine.


But by God’s grace and mercy, April’s Beloved brother who lived with their father was determined to introduce April to Christ. After several failed attempts trying to persuade April to attend church with him, they finally came to an agreement. She made a promise that if her brother would go to the nightclub with her then she would go to church with him.


Under the influence of drugs and alcohol, a 16 year old April Stoner sat in church with her beloved brother as the Pastor spoke the words that would change her life forever. Her walk with Christ has not come without heartache trial and tribulation. Surviving domestic abuse, divorce and homelessness as a single mother with her 5 beautiful daughter’s, it is by her faith that she is still standing. April Stoner supports the “Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence” as her donation charity. Inspirational speaker, model and actress, April Stoner has had roles in such box office hits as The Fast and the Furious 8, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, upcoming films The Leisure Seeker, The Haves and The Have Nots, Lifetime Network series, Scratch the Runway Fashion show, and many more. Quote: “...your past has been erased and your sins have been forgiven by one touch of the blood of Jesus…”

She is the Chief Editor of a digital magazine called "This Journey Online" which is a tool for women and children to tell ‘their’ story as well as those who want to encourage others through poems, self- helps, artistry, and articles; giving everyone the opportunity to speak out and help someone as well as themselves. Ms. Bennett spearheads their annual community-wide 3K 5K Run/Walk called JADASA which stands for Journey Against Domestic And Sexual Abuse and is their ‘branding’ name for the entire organization. This event is to raise awareness of the epidemic and open up the line of communication between businesses, civic organizations, churches and the community to provide resources to families. Ms. Bennett's organization also partners with local schools. She provides many opportunities to educate, edify and empower. This year she will launch a new show called ‘SHEMOTIONS LIVE’ on social media.

These are just some of the reasons why Kimberly L. Burrell is an inspiration to women. She says, “Overcoming a tragedy like the death of a child helped me see the value of life itself”.
