Motivation for Perspective: Go Getter Monday

Sometimes once we achieve our goal, there are still obstacles that we must endure to fully obtain our goal.
The test has a part two!
And it’s on us to make the choice to push thru or give up.
I encourage you today to gather your confidence, stand tall and believe in your dream. Your mission. Your pursuit.
Yes, the test has a part two, but so does  your Go Getter Spirit!
So turn it on and do what you need to do.

Flyy Girl Feature Friday: Aliah Davis-McHenry

Happy Friday Mofros!

I am so excited to be back with our beloved Flyy Girl Feature Friday series.

This Brown Beauty Fit Blogger has everything you need, from exercise tips to monthly recipes and apparel.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

                                                           Mrs. Aliah Davis-McHenryAliahDavis

Hello! Please introduce yourself to the readers.

Aliah Davis-McHenry, New Jersey

Tell us about your blog, Get Fit Diva:
GET FIT DIVA is a dynamic community for women who want to change their lives and become more active, find their fabulous, and live “balanced”.
Why did you begin blogging?
What started as a blog chronicling my own weight loss and healthy living journey has become a movement for women. No longer do I chase a size or number on the scale but promote being active doing things you love (for me: Zumba, spin, running, and kickboxing), finding your fabulous by traveling, eating right, and feeling your best…but also living balanced. Balance is like a unicorn but finding harmony in all that you do is paramount in your healthy living journey.

What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?
I am motivated by my community! I love that I am connecting and helping women around the world make time for themselves to become healthier and happier. This means so much to me. We are ALL on this journey together so providing resources, workouts, and access to experts that offer “real” advice has been incredible.
In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?
In the Fall, I am launching an online store with GET FIT DIVA branded merchandise and also hosting local events. I hope that this manifests into women on their journeys finding encouragement online and offline.

Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow.
Two of my favorite bloggers…that’s hard! I have so many but I love the ladies behind Brooklyn Active Mama, Losing In The City, Manifest Yourself, Mad Cool Fitness, Curvy Fashionista, Awesomely Luvvie…I am so thankful that there are so many bloggers doing their “thang” and empowering women in many, many ways.
What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?
I want to leave behind the legacy of being a great mother who loved hard and a multi-passionate woman that wanted to experience anything and everything this crazy/beautiful life brought her way!
Upcoming projects or events:
Currently, I’m working with Kohl’s on their #MakeYourMove campaign to encourage women and families to be active and eat healthier. I’m also an Ambassador for Katie K Active, Eleven by Venus, Premier Protein, and spokesperson for Adora Calcium. I love working with brands that are doing amazing things for women and families! In the Fall, I am launching branded merchandise and in the upcoming year will host, co-host, and speak at local and national events.
Please be sure to head over to GET FIT DIVA and join Aliah in her quest to motivate and inspire others on living their best life, the healthy way!

The Return of Flyy Girl Friday Feature

FlyyGirlWhew! Okay we are going to try this thang one more time, before I throw my hands up with the idea. This time around, I took the power back into my hands and decided to work smarter, not backwards.

I was fortunate enough to stumble upon Brown Girl Bloggers, when the admin, Candice VanWye, “liked” a pic of mine on Instagram. I have been following the Brown Girl Bloggers movement ever since.

This community of bloggers is made up of sistars from various backgrounds and blog platforms. From, lifestyle, to fashion, food, interior decorating, travel, fitness, beauty, finance, business and beyond. How could I pass up the opportunity to feature these ladies, these Flyy Girl Friday Feature worthy women?!

I mean it goes to show you, when you first attempt a new goal or project, the first few times out of the gate, it may not come so easily or as smooth and fabulous-like as you envisioned it within  your mind. It could be a slow process. It could seem that no one is going to buy into the idea and support the cause. But, if you keep your eye open and watch for other opportunities, there is a way you can connect the missing pieces.

Every failure leads to the answer. Somehow, HeyGirlHey!!! is gonna get it right. I truly believe this site is going to afford me some amazing bonds with women and possibly form some amazing partnerships.

So raise your glasses to the great and long awaited successful launch of Flyy Girl Friday Feature, February 6, 2015

This is the year of #HeyyGurrlHeyy Power!
