Haters/ By Maya Angelou

A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends all their
time trying to make you look small so they can look tall.
They are very negative people to say the least.  Nothing is ever
good enough!

When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…

That’s why you have to be careful with whom you share your
blessings and your dreams, because some folk can’t handle seeing
you blessed…

It’s dangerous to be like somebody else… If God wanted you to be
like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them!  Right?

You never know what people have gone through to get what they
have…

The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they
don’t know my story…

If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you
can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!

We’ve all got some haters among us!

Some people envy you because you can:
      a) Have a relationship with God
      b) Light up a room when you walk in
      c) Start your own business
      d) Tell a man/woman to hit the curb (if he/she isn’t about the right thing)
      e) Raise your children without both parents being in the home

Haters can’t stand to see you happy.
Haters will never want to see you succeed.
Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side.

How do you handle your undercover (cowards) haters?
You can handle these haters by:

            1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are
                *(VERY IMPORTANT!!)

            2. Having a purpose to your life: Purpose does not
                mean having a job. You can have a job and still be
                unfulfilled.

A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be.
Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.

            3. By remembering what you have is by divine
                    prerogative and not human manipulation.

Fulfill your dreams!  You only have one life to live…when it’s your
time to leave this earth, you want to be able to say, ‘I’ve lived my
life and fulfilled my dreams, Now I’m ready to go HOME!

When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters, ‘Don’t look at
me…Look at who is in charge of me…’
So, today I’m not going to talk about what I’m wearing because that’s not the point. I had a crazy weekend. It appears that someone is obsessed with my life and wants to slander me. I want you all to know that what I speak is (100%) real always. I never ever lied about what went on my life. I started this blog to get through things in life and to use this as a journal for myself as well as my family. That was fun. Now, it’s beginning to be sick the way malicious devils(!) want to enter into your life just to be nosy. I  hired a private investigator and will  get to the bottom of this. I will protect my family! My husband and I haven’t decided if I’m gonna keep the site up as of yet. I have a daughter with friends that visits my site and look up to me/not my past, but my heart. So stay tuned… It’s crazy how many views I’ve received this morning alone because of the drama.

Did you guys see the news about the college student that was taped and didn’t know it? He killed himself. Well those students were arrested and they thought they were being funny trying to hurt someone and it backfired!

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that supported me and I know my readers have my back! I will make my decision on Wednesday. Please have a productive week!

Tip: You never know what evil act can put someone over the edge…

  1. Please dont let the "haters" see you sweat?!?!? Get rid of this beautifully blessed blog?!?! You better not. I love your sense of style, personality, love for others and your love for GOD. I would be so disappointed if you let these haters get to you! Please do not delete your blog!!

  2. If God be for you, who can be against you? He promised to give His angles charge over you so Tanya sweetie don't be discouraged by naysayers because you have been a blessing to many and consequently there will always be someone(s) who will try and bring you down. Bless!

  3. wow this hit close to the heart as Im in the same situation as people (females are trying to slander my name to my husband) and its like yall looking at me and see how happy I am but you dnt know half of what ive been through to get here. So I completely understand sister. Im sad that your going through this situation but your tough and strong and God is behind and this to shall pass. Cant wait to see you so much to catch up on.

    Love you dearly and you continue to shine

    love always

  5. Some people are so ignorant, jealous! I love all your blogs, your style so much.
    You have favor from God so please continue to be you because you inspire others.
    xoxo ~Danni~

  6. SIS THIS IS BEAUTIFUL YOU R SOOOOOO PERFECT……IF POSSIBLE PLEASE KEEP YOUR WEBSITE I LOVE IT…….BUT I WANT YOU TO DO WHAT'S BEST FOR THE FAMILY…..:) DON'T LET THE DEVIL STILL YOUR JOY REMEMBER THERE'S ONLY TWO IN OPERATION A RIGHTEOUS SPIRIT AND A UNRIGHTEOUS SPIRIT…….AND THEY ALWAYS TRY TO KNOCK THE RIGHTEOUS DOWN BUT IT NEVER WORKS……..DANNNNNNGGGGG QUIT HATE'N SATAN……..LUV YA TALK TO U SOON…….LIL SIS ASH:)

  7. Now that is just ridicioulous. You know that you are truly doing so many things right. People can really be productive in life if they spent as much time focusing on themselves rather than you and yours. Your blog has brought so much inspiration and positivity to alot of people. So if you decide to shut it down then you will just hear from me more often :-)….. We all know that you are truly strong and can't be broken. I will continue to keep you guys in my prayers!!!!!!!!!! Love You… Cindy

  8. Jealousy is a dangerous emotion. Keep you head up and stay focused and always keep in mind it's not easy being the person you are. Always remember when these haters stop talking you need to start worrying. Your brother SP…….

  9. 🙁 I hope that you decide to keep this blog up and running. It's a shame that you had to get a PI involved but I pray that your family remains safe. Ultimately your family comes first so you have to do what's best for them. I'll keep your family in my prayers. There are some really sick people out here but please don't let them discourage you.

    Stay blessed!

  10. I just recently discovered your blog…..I love it! In the short time I've been here you've encouraged/inspired me. I wouldn't want you to delete it but I certainly would understand and respect your decision. Stay Blessed!

  11. As always when you are a part of/ or doing something well and exciting, and ultimately have a huge fan base, there will always be those people that want to bring you down because of pure jealosy or if they can get paid. Tanya, there is something about you that has always attracted a crowd and it is (your gift.) You are pretty and have a great since of style. I'm glad to see you working it to. You have always been a leader. You never hold back and speak your mind. Moving forward…. we all have our on philosophies on how we chose to live our lives. My favorite is: As long as you treat people the way you want to be treated your fine. I treat people well both professionally and personally always, and sometimes no matter how nice or good I am to someone I have issues. My mom has a great saying, "Don't let other peoples issues be your issue." I love this one!!! I never give any energy to people that are unkind to me because they are not even worth it. People will treat you bad for no reason at all. In your case the issue is that you have a very successful blog. Keep up your motivation, discipline, and hard work. You're getting better and better! Whatever bad press is spoken about you only intrigues people to read your blog more.

  12. Okay, so, I don't know where to start. If I could combine all the comments you received into one comment that would be perfect. Everyone has already said everything. Hater's are essential to your progress. They keep you on your toes.

    I love how the bible says, your enemy will become your foot stool. SO TRUE!!! I am a witness. He WILL prepare a table before you in the presence of your ENEMIES. Who the hell has a perfect life? Do they think your life has to be perfect in order to have a relationship with God and give him glory??? Not so!

    They should have national haters day, so we can thank ALL the haters for what they have done for us. They are so stupid that even though they try to put you down they are playing right into God's ultimate plan for our life. The bible says ALL things work together for good to them that love the lord…and that what the devil has meant for evil He shall turn it around for good…and the No weapons formed against us shall prosper…. It also says that fools don't know what makes them stumble (my favorite).

    I luv luv luv the Maya Angelou poem and i'm one of her biggest fans. Funny how the haters are so stupid that when they try to slander you they show how truly insecure and jealous they are. Now, should you keep the blog up? I think you know the answer to that…

    You have also inspired me to start my social network that will be coming out in December 2010 and I want you to keep this blog up so I can promote it through your site. We can give the hater's a double dose of what they are lookin for.

    I am so proud of you…you have haters! That means that you are accomplishing a lot and walkin out God's plan for your life. One person, ASH, said in her comment that there are only 2 paths, righteous and unrighteous. Stay on your path and let them stay on theirs. The truth shines through regardless… Continue to be a light in a dark place.

    Luv You! On to the next one!

  13. Hey, Hun. I am so sorry to hear about the unfortunate events going on in your life and I'm hoping and praying for you that the situation gets better. You safety and family should always be your main priority and I hope this does not have a negative affect on them. I just recently discovered your blog last week and your style is so sick! I have learned so much from you already and you have definitely helped this college girl out alot lol. I do hope you still decide to keep your blog because many people do look up to you for inspiration including me, but do what's best for you and your family. Wishing you all the best 😀

  14. I LOVE this post for soooo many reasons! Please do not shut the blog for your shall be missed. You do your thing and let the rotten people rot. What's worse is that I will actually pray for the 'haters' to get some peace and happiness in their lives for they can learn to focus on themselves than to try and bring others down. God Bless you and your family. You are right that your readers have got your back 🙂

    Lots and lots of love from your friend from the blogging world!!!

  15. I don´t know what to say, but keep in mind, that there will always be bad people no matter where and who you are. The point is, to not let them take control of any minute in your life, even a thought can be to much for them. i don´t know what exactly happend, but you have to do what you feel is the best for you and your family. I would be happy if u keep this blog, but I will also understand if not. Listen to your heart, take your time, think about it and decide. Don´t forget, that there are people who love you.
    God bless you and your family.
    Love u
    Kiki

  16. NOOOOO! Dont let anyone try to take away your joy. I def would be sad if you decided to close your site but I and Im sure your other readers would understand. It is a shame that other people are so concerned about the next person when 9 times out of 10 they dont have their own ish together. I hope things start to get better for you-we got your back! 🙂
    -Kay

  17. Never could have said it better!!! Don't let the negativity get you down let it make you stronger. Someone is always going to have something negative to say about you that's just the kind of world we live in. Take tis situation and turn it into a positive. Teach yours girls how to be a strong and confident of a WOMAN as you are no matter what people say. LET GO & LET GOD!!!! FYI you can't stop the blog I use these outfits lol and dream about them lmao!!!

  18. Hello Tanya,

    I am sorry to hear the bad news on your blog today. I know the protection and safety of your family is your first priority.

    Just though I’d share this with you…

    You hear everyday about the women you’ve inspired, I’m one of them. On the radio every morning they have the “Points of Power,” a message that encourages its listeners to live on purpose. When I initially visited your blog I was attracted to your image, your style, and the way you presented yourself. I saw something more than just beautiful clothes and a beautiful woman wearing them… there was a “glow” an inner beauty that conveyed itself without me ever reading the content of your messages. What you wrote in your blog, inspired me to live on purpose, to seek God further and press deeper. You are a living example of God’s faithfulness. I know you started this blog to share with your family & friends, but God used you to be a blessing to a complete stranger. My boyfriend and I have been dating and discussing marriage. We have done everything together EXCEPT go to church. He travels a lot for his job, so I always go alone or with my girlfriends. You reminded me than in order to have a successful relationship with anyone, God must be first. I began to speak to him more about praying together, reading the bible and going to church together. True story… This past Sunday he and I attended church. He loved it!

    I pray God with continue to use you. I just wanted you to know how you’ve impacted my life. Thank you for giving so much of yourself, thank you for your sincerity.

    God bless,
    Grace Anne

  19. I'm pretty sure you bring more people joy and a sense of style than folks hating on you. Protect your family, I get that. I have daughter myself but don't allow haters to still your joy! And that's bringing joy to other women who visit you daily (myself) just to see what cute fit you have on and what inspiring thing you have to say. I started reading your blog when I lost my sense of style because I had a baby, and gained weight. You've given me hope that I will get my fly back real soon! Shallow to some but once being stylish to wearing sweats everyday does a number on your self esteem. There are some mean spirited, evil people out there but hurting people hurt people. It's not the people hating on you that are the problem. It's the forces behind them. That's what you're fighting and you will allow those forces to win if you stop writing and spreading joy!

  20. Continue to be blessed and humble, you are the second guru (yes, I said Guru) that I LOVE, that has been picked on.

    Glad you got a PI. Who cares about your past, we all have them. sadsadsad!

    as I've said before you inspire me and make me add a lil jazz to my outits. Even though I do not know you, I am proud of you. gorgeous family lady.

    as the old folks say "nothing BUT the devil".

  21. You are a beautiful person and as long as you stay strong and know who you are…someone who tries to slander and bring you down will only fail. Greed and envy are deadly sins…keep God in your heart! Have a blessed and better day!
    xx

  22. Your blog and fashion choices are positive and inspirational IMHO. You must do what is best for yourself and your family. I pray for your protection from evil sources and that you continue to let your light shine. I don't know you personally but from what I can read negativity isn't included. MUCH CONTINUED SUCCESS……..

  23. WOW. That's some BS. haters, be content with yourselves so you don't have to bash others. God will judge us individually so stop trying to do HIS JOB!

  24. U KILLEM SOFTLY IF YOU WERE NOT THE SHIZNIT PEOPLE WOULD NOT HATE ON YOU REMEMBER THEY DID THE SAME TO JESUS HE STILL STOOD TALL DON'T LET NO ONE KNOCK YOU DOWN KEEP DOING YOUR THING CUZ YOU DO IT WELL. TOODLES p.S UPLOADING THE POEM TO MY FACE BOOK THX

  25. oh my goodness…. what is wrong with people?? People cant see other people happy and successful… I do hope you keep your site up but if not, I think we all will understand. Im so sorry you're going throught this…

  26. I saw the thread yesterday and was absolutely disgusted! It's really a shame that people feel the need to investigate someone's life just because they have nice things. They just can't be satisfied with the nice style and wise words you provide on your blog. It's really sick obsessive jealousy over some designer duds.

    Miserable women on that website have ran all the fashionistas away over the past couple of years. It's really sad. I hope you do get to the bottom of this and continue to blog.

  27. PREACH!!! I love your blog..please don't let anyone steal your thunder!!! Haters will always be amongst us. I know you have to do what's best for you and your family. I hope you decide to keep up your blog up.

  28. Hey Baby Girl,

    KNOW THAT I LOVE AND CHERISH YOU MORE THAN WORDS COULD EVER SAY. IAM WRITING THIS WITH TEARS IN MY EYES BECAUSE WHEN YOU HURT, I HURT. DO NOT ALLOW THESE HATERS TO PUNISH YOU , YOU DID NOTHING WRONG. TANYA YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SOUL . HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH AND FOCUS ON THE PROS NOT THE CONS. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT THAT IS WHY THEY HATE YOU . THE CLOSER YOU GET TO GOD THE MORE satan ATTACKS. YOU NEED THESE HATERS TO GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL. HIGHER LEVEL BIGGER devils.

    MATT 10:19 BEHOLD I SEND YOU FORTH AS SHEEP IN THE MIDST OF WOLVES, BE THEREFORE WISE AS A SERPENT AND GENTLE AS DOVES.

    PSALM 91;2 I WILL SAY OF THE LORD, HE IS MY REFUGE AND MY FORTRESS; MY GOD IN HIM WILL I TRUST
    PSALM 91 :11 HE SHALL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER THEE, TO KEEP THEE IN ALL THY WAYS.

    EPH 6:12 FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.

    PRAY ABOUT WHAT YOU SHOULD DO ABOUT THIS BLOG AND IT SHOULD BE CLOSE DOWN ONLY IF GOD TELLS YOU TO. GIVE THE devil A RUN FOR HIS MONEY. THE devil and THE HATERS ARE NOTHING BUT A TOOTHLESS, SPINELESS DOG. IT IS A COWARD WHO HAS TO HIDE AND OPERATE IN DARKNESS.
    MATT 10:28 FEAR NOT THEM WHICH KILL THE BODY, BUT Are not able to kill the soul; BUT FEAR HIM WHICH IS ABLE TO DESTROY BOTH SOUL AND BODY IN HELL.

    KEEP SHINING AND INSPIRE US ALL. YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST AND YOU WILL NOT BE THE LAST PERSON THEY DO THIS TO SO JUST LEAVE THEM TO GOD.

    STAND TALL AND HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH YOUR HIGHNESS. YOU ARE TRULY BLESS WITH A GOOD MAN, YOUR KIDS, YOUR MOM AND DAD AND SOME AWESOME POWERFUL WOMEN(FRIENDS).

    REMEMBER MISERY LOVES COMPANY.

    IN CLOSING , THE ONLY RACE THAT I EVER SEE BRINGING EACH OTHER DOWN IS OUR BLACK RACE AND THAT IS SO SAD. YOU ARE ARE A BLACK SISTER TRYING TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE AND THESE CRABS IN THE BARREL ARE TRYING TO PULL BACK DOWN. AGAIN STAND TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALL

    I LOVE YOU , YOUR HUSBAND AND YOUR KIDS AND I WILL ALWAYS HAVE YOU BACK ALONG WITH MY FATHER GOD.

    YOU ARE A PRICELESS GEM AND A RARE TREASURE. STAY BLESS

    I DECLARE FAVOR, PROTECTION AND BLESSINGS OVER YOU AND YOUR FAMILY LIFE IN JESUS NAME AND NO WEAPON FORM AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER.

    LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO JESUS
    LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO OPRAH AND LOOK WHERE SHE IS TODAY
    THIS TOO SHALL PASS

    LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER,

    MOMS

  29. You look fabalous………..Wow I am in Tearsssss Its so sick how people are so wicked………But theres something about when u have favor with God, the enemy attacks on every hand…….. Your faith is being tested the enemy seeks only whom he can devour , now its up to you if you will stand or let the enemy defeat you????? Only the STRONG SURVIVE . T this is so SMALL in the eyes of God so YOU MUST KEEP THE FAITH ………..AND GIVE GOD BACK HIS GLORY 4 UR STRENGTH……….. AMEN

  30. Oh no honey! The blog must stay! I know you will get to the bottome of it because that is what you do! That Hater poem sums it all up! Love you much! There may be a hidden blessing in all of this…I bet there is…so just keep moving forward and keep the blog!!

  31. PS
    I love your moms post..she is so strong and knows the word of GOD! Now, I see where you get your confidence, faith, and strength from…

  32. "When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters"……

    You've made your mark sweetie. So let them stop and stare. Are they jealous because their star doesn't shine as bright??? Of course!!! Why else would someone take the time to boast negativity? Whether the can sleep at night is not the point. It's whether or not they are happy with the person they see in the mirror on a daily basis. I'm willing to bet the are unhappy and bitter. Why else would they hide behind a fake name and pic?

    "Your purpose is NOT defined by what others think of you".

    You've been an inspiration to me and many, many others. We all have a past. Your blog, your smile, your sense of fashion, your inspirational messages are proof that you CAN come out stronger and wiser on the other side. What didn't kill you made you stronger…..not only as an individual, but as a FAMILY. They don't know your story. What they do know is that you are STRONG, BEAUTIFUL, INTELLIGENT and A CHILD OF GOD! And it's KILLING them because they LACK ALL of those qualities. Your life is not defined by the click of any link. It is the every beat of your heart that shows me and many others the type of person you REALLY are. So let em' talk. Let em' dig. And let em' post. I really hope you continue to inspire us all.

    Love,
    EAD

  33. I love this post and it is very motivational. I think this outfit is cute and you know what, you should never let someone else's misery determine your happiness.

  34. I don't know all of the details…..and yes, you do have to make the best decision for you and your family, but I would BE VERY SADDENED TO SEE THE BLOG SHUT DOWN. The haters will always be there, but I'm sure your followers who find this blog inspirational, & stylish, greatly outweigh the jealous haters trying to tear you down. If you shut down the blog, they will have won! So I hope you do everything in your power to get past this, and continue to do "YOU". As one of your "OG" fans(lol), I've witnessed the number of people follwing your blog grow in such a short period of time, and I think that speaks volume in itself! Soooo keep your head up, your 4inch heels on :), and stay in PRAYER, as will I !!! Luv ya girly!

  35. Tanya,

    It's unfortunate that people have to invade and publicize someones privacy out of spite because they want the life you live. It's obvious your real viewers LOVE your site for your unique fashion ideas and your weekly inspirations… You have been a soldier for as long as I have known you, and will persevere from all of this. Keep in mind, they can't make you or break you. I pray God will lead you in the right direction in your decison making with this site. Continue to be the beautiful butterfly that you are… Love you, T

  36. I can totally understand your need to protect your privacy and unfortunately with all the wonderful sharing people do online: youtube, blogging, online forums – along with all of the GREAT things, there are people who love to be cyber thugs and just hate on everything you do. Just know that even through something that some may view as menial, your fashion tips help so many people. You are such an inspiration. I told a few friends about your site and was saying IDK much about her but I love what I know. You have an awesome shape after 2 kids! Staying healthy and feeling fit and attractive (to yourself) after having children is something many women struggle with and it is an inspiration. Seeing a married working woman take care of themselves and their appearance is an inspiration. Hearing about how you branched out from doing hair to personal styling is an inspiration. Actually I would recommend safeguarding yourself. When I first started doing things "online" I never understood why people went through such extremes to safeguard themselves. Maybe using a pseudo-name instead of your real one (especially your last name) will help keep some of your anonymity. I hope that you do decide to continue your blog. As I shared in my personal email – you have really helped me and inspired me. Pray about it and know that I am praying for you as well. God Bless you and your family.

  37. Don't delete your blog T. Reading your words of advice have gotten me through some tough times. Just remember that you are being tested so that you can be qualified to do more great things. Testing is always necessary prior to graduation. So just remember that when people go out of their way to create mischief and hate on others, they are suffering from insucurities. My cousin once told me that the more positive energy that you send out the more spiritual vampires you will attract. Don't let those spiritual vampires steal your shine because they can't stand the glare! Keep the faith in God and continue to have confidence in yourself. Peace & Love

  38. I'm sorry you're going through this! People can be nasty and coniving and jealous because they aren't living the life that they THINK you have. I only say think because they really don't KNOW you and they can only make assumptions off what they see.

    i really appreciate your blog and I hope that you don't shut it down but I would completely understand if you did because people are crazy out here!

    And yes, the young guy at Georgetown that killed himself was a perfect example of what can go wrong when people commit evil acts against someone for no reason. How did they know that this boy was not wrestling with himself about what he was doing..possibly he was ashamed or wasn't out of the closet. I'm glad that those people that released the tape were arrested. i feel so sad for that young guy 🙁

  39. I know that everyone already said it all, but I have to say my piece. Let your enemies be your footstool!! Someone as successful as you is going to attract haters, look past them. You will only give them the benefit of the doubt if you succumb to their lies. I say let your haters be your motivation and DO YOU times 1000!!

    I am truly inspired by your blog and your success for me to strive towards. Don't let haters stop your inspiration to others. I'll be in Touch hun.

    Love u,
    Shiniece

  40. Seriously, do not let "them" win. If you shut it down they've accomplished just what they set out to do. But, I do understand you have a family to protect and if you're anything like me or most protective mothers/wives you go hard for yours. I'm not sure how critical your situation is but, my husband and I have had to deal with vandalism, people lying etc. (and this dates back to when we first got together which was eons ago;) and it all boils down to jealousy and people being unhappy with themselves and their current situation. In the words of Kelly Cutrone "you have to be prepared for people to hate you" which is sad but soooo true. It's sad because people work hard to get where they are in life whether it be a relationship, home, cars etc. and it's a shame you can't enjoy it without this bull. Okay, I'm done rambling because I can go on and on;) Keep your head up and continue to be the fabulous inspiration that you are.

  41. Sigh, I can see the bitter broads over on that site struck again. Why do people make it their duty to try and figure out someone else's life and lifestyle. Does what they eat or s**t make you bleed? Tanya, keep your head up mama. You are a beautiful, wonderfully inspirational woman and so many of us gain a lot from visiting your blog. Never ever let the bitter down in the dumps women of the world see you sweat. Let them continue to wallow in their misery while you rise like the phoenix you are. Stay blessed.

  42. I enjoy checking out your blog because I really like your fashion sense. But, I understand if you decided to close your site, because your privacy and your family's privacy is most important. God bless you and best wishes!

  43. i have to confess that i learned of your blog from that website. i thank them for that 🙂 majority of the responses were so positive about you and that's a very hard outcome to get! that site is known for MESS! DON'T LET THEM WIN by ending something you love and that's positive. They're the ones with the issues…not you honey. keep doing you and doing good!!!

  44. I have always said these few words for as long as I can remember (WOMEN WE NEED TO STOP BEATING EACHOTHER DOWN) I am really starting to see why brothas date othe race women…who wants to deal with a child in a womans body!! You can never work on you because you are too worried about the next woman gettin what you have even when they dont know nothing about YOU!!!! God made someone, something and all things for everybody. As women we look in the mirror everyday checking out our beauty…sometimes we see dark circles under our eyes or wrinkles around our mouths and we wonder where do these things come from? It might be all the frowning you do or all the sleep you lose cause your hating on the next woman! God is the best knower and judgment maker..he lays the path we can walk it or fall but god WILL fix you! Instead of hating what a woman has pray that god can bless you to have what you need heck or even material things if thats you thing. Some of these woman I swear should really start a business cause they have too much time on their hands..Heck go have a baby something to keep you occupied with life dummies..
    To my sister,

    I LOVE YOU AND PRAY FOR YOU, THE DEVIL WERES FAKE GUCCI AND CANT AFFORD LOUIS VUITTON..BUT FOR REAL PLEASE DONT LET THESE EVIL PEOPLE TAKE YOUR FAITH AND FUN AWAY…A HATERS PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO KILL YOUR JOY..DONT LET THAT HAPPEN. I WILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING. IT HELPS ME ALOT!!!

    IF TANYA HELPS YOU AND YOU GET GOOD IDEALS FROM HER….POST YOUR MAJORMUSTHAVES LOOK LET HER KNOW YOU LOVE HER AND NEED HER LIKE I DO.

  45. People are soooooooo evil I swear, Ugh! It's a shame because everthing that you represent is so harmless and your on here to help people with their problems or just to cheers some1's day up, your so friendly and bright overall just a breath of fresh air! Well I would like to congratulate u & thank u on whatever decision u make cuz it was a great honor to meet u, but i'm crossing my fingers & hoping that u'll stay, cuz im still losing weight and & your my inspiration & it's a must that I look fly every time I step a foot outside I love it!

  46. You've already been given excellent advice about haters but I just wanted to add my words of encouragement as well. I found your site about 2 months ago and I've really enjoyed your positivity as well as your fashion. Your beautiful and genuine spirit just comes through the computer screen. I think for a lot of your readers, you are more like a friend than just some random blogger . Please don't let small people kill your dream. Your blog is really about more than fashion and a lot of people would really miss you and your empowering words if you discontinued it.

    I received an email today with the following scriptures and I thought I'd share them with you:

    "At present you may be temporarily harassed by all kinds of trials. This is no accident. It happens to prove your faith which is infinitely more valuable than gold." 1 Peter 1:6-7 (Phillips)

    "This is the reason we never lose heart. These troubles which are temporary are winning for us a permanent, a glorious and solid reward out of proportion to our pain. So we don't look at the temporary situation. We look beyond to see the eternal benefits." 2 Corinthians 4:16-17 (Phillips)

    Give your situation over to God and allow Him to move on your behalf!

  47. Anytime, you have a light that shines and people admire you and support you, the other side that comes with that is the hate. I don't think that is your issue, if this person has nothing better to do than stalk you, that is her problem.
    I believe God has called you to minister to people and you can't let the devil get in the way of that. So many people love what you are doing including myself, and really look to this blog for wisdom in their own circumstances.
    Keep up God's work, I consider you a warrior for Jesus!

  48. I Love Maya Angelou and this beautiful Blue coordinted outfit. Keep Doing You, because obviously you are doing something RIGHT! Smooches

  49. WOW… it's crazy how many people are envious! That's the devil trying to work… I dont know you personally, but love the site an what it offers!!!! Dont let the devil steal your joy, people are wicked

  50. Hello I met you while doing a brief transaction @ Wescom admiring a necklace you kindly informed me you bought from forever 21. You noted you typicallly didn't share where you bought things from but felt comfortable to share with me. Your inner beauty radiated so naturally into your outer beauty making you a vision of God's creation. Don't allow the haters to rain on your parade, allow this to become yet another hurdle that thru him you will successfully over come. Your gift in sharing ministers to a population of young women who need encouragement and can easily relate because its visual.

    Lovingly Lyne
