66 Days New Year’s Habits Challenge


I have joined the challenge, have you?  Naturalista4me is teaming up with Holistic Coach, Emelia Hester for the 66 Days New Year’s Habits Challenge. We all have habits whether they are good or bad. The bad habits can prevent us from living the life that we desire. Your bad habits can consist of everything from your eating habits, self-sabotaging and being so quick to react negatively to situations. Most of the times we can acknowledge these bad habits on our own and some even have the nerve to get upset when someone tells them something they already know about themselves.

Since it may hurt one’s feelings to be called out on the truth, this is not a bad thing (although many will take it as such) it can be the beginning of your life changing-for the better. When one does not act to change the truth about one’s own holdup, they are choosing to keep those bad habits. We can not grow if we do not change.

The 66 Days New Year’s Habits Challenge is organized and hosted by Holistic Coach, Emelia Hester. Emelia has a passion for teaching and helping others to shine. She organizes and hosts empowerment events in her location, Atlanta, GA. She is changing lives on a daily basis and is ready to help more people make a change for the better.

When I signed up, Emelia shared with me the importance of being aware of my surroundings when doing the challenge. She told me to find a support group. Talk with my friends and family so they could encourage me and check in with me as I am making this change for the better. She told me that a positive environment will help me to stick to the challenge.

I have a love for uplifting others and will began to talk deeper about something I have discovered about myself since I have been on a spiritual journey. I will be encouraging those who have joined this challenge to keep pressing on when you began to have doubt or run into any obstacles. The time is now for us to take back control of the direction of our lives. It is not too late. You still have breath in your body. Take the steps starting now.

If I Fail, At Least I Have Given It My All


Hi guys my name is Jasmine Barton-Moore author of Sparks Fly. I self-published my own book, but before I explain let me give you a little back ground of myself. I am twenty-six years old at the moment. I found myself lost and wondering what I was going to do in life. I had gotten my degree of Associate of Arts in English. After that I still found myself lost. I told myself you could go back to school and continue your education and get into a lot of debt or you can live out your dream, live for the here and now. Tomorrow is not promised to us. Now I am not saying I will never go back to school, but I was tired of waking up every morning and not living to my fullest potential. I had started my blog post where I would publish chapters of my book, but that still wasn’t enough for me.

I had surgery December 2016 and I had six weeks off from work, I found myself lying in bed, sleeping all day and doing absolutely nothing with my time. One day I decided to I pull out my laptop and finish Spars Fly. At the time I had no title for the book, but I was driven to accomplish something and be happy about it. Just like that I had finished my book, but I didn’t know where to go from there. So of course I turned to the Internet, I educated myself on self-publishing, building a business and growing my platform.

You’re probably thinking, why not go to school to learn this stuff. Believe me this was no easy journey, it was stressful. I worked a fulltime job, I sat on different boards for church, I squeezed in working out, living the married life, and I took care of my brother. My day would start at 5:30 in the morning and end at midnight every day. The reason I choose not to go to school at the time is because I remember sitting in class and listening to my professor say how he was still paying off his student loans and how so many people have had to go back to college because no one is hiring in the field they went to school for. I didn’t want to be fifty years old and paying back school debt when I could be my own Boss. I do still work a fulltime job, but just like I put in nine hours a day at that job, I come home and put just as much time into my business.

When I was looking for direction I looked to God, but also I had to restore the confidence I lost and believe in myself again. If I was going to fail, at least I knew I gave it my all. The year 2018 I plan on publishing two books and announcing another project I have been working on so be on the look out for that.
