::Motivation Mondays - Loss isn’t always Bad:: 
If you treat every opportunity in life as a life learning lesson, your losses will no longer feel as such. A lesson learned is much more valuable than a lesson lost. There are always lessons to be learned in our failures.

Don’t lose heart. Learn the lesson, do better, move on!

WE are blessed! Early this morning I learned of the passing of natural hair Vlogger, Domineque of Long Hair Don’t Care 2011. She was only 27. Funds are being raised so she can have a proper burial. To help go to @naptural85’s Facebook page for details. We never know when our time will come but it is inevitable.

It doesn’t take much to spread good vibes. Say good morning to a stranger, go out of your way to help someone, give a compliment, tell a friend how much you appreciate their friendship, tell someone you love them, write a thank you note, make someone laugh…”Be the reason someone smiles today.” :-)
