Hey everyone...hope you all had an awesome weekend. :-) Today I would like to discuss the importance of not only looking for inspiration but being an inspiration as well.
Thursday the 23rd I had the pleasure of attending my first, Curly Nikki event for Optimum Soft Sheen and it was awesome. Many of you may already know who she is but if you don't, Nikki is very well known for her huge impact on the natural hair care community and has been a huge inspiration for many including myself.
I was blessed to attend this event with one of my best friends (who took the wonderful photos above) and met some great people along the way. While anxiously waiting to take a pic with Nikki, I watched how she greeted every single person that was in line with a warm smile and attitude that showed just how much she was grateful for everyone coming out to support her and to see not only her but Tracee Ellis Ross as well. Yeah, I know, awesome right?? :)))
While at this event it was proven to me how much one person can be an inspiration by just speaking from the heart and in the process helping others. Nikki proved to me that yes like anyone else she looks for inspiration from people like Tracee but she is also an inspiration herself. When I say this venue was packed, it was packed. She has touched so many and it all started from just a simple blog entry and today she is receiving blessings from those she has helped along the way and she gets to sit down and converse with the likes of Tracee. Just freakin awesome!
Just like Nikki, I hope to inspire many of you everyday with just a simple blog entry and who knows where it might take me. Right now my goal is to just make others smile and hopefully help someone along the way, that to me is more then enough to be grateful for.
While in the realms of looking for inspiration, do you consider yourself to be an inspiration?
Thanks so much for reading and stay tuned for Curly Nikki event pics as well as my ATL trip pics coming up shortly in the Just Me section.
