Letter to my daughter on her 9th Birthday!!!

Dear Rayniya,
This is a picture of you just a few hours after you were born. I knew that having you, my second child, My first girl, was going to change my life. 
But the truth is, Niya, I had no idea. 
I had no idea you would change my life in the way that you have. These past 8 years have been the most amazing 8 years of my life. Youโ€™re the best daughter that any mom could ever ask for. 
You are a very bubbly, smart, talented and beautiful girl. I am very proud to be your mom. I cannot believe that you are turning 9 years old today! Each and every day, you amaze me with your curiosity, your joy, your boundless energyโ€ฆand your tenacity. (Some would call it stubbornness.)
You possess a fashion sense that is uniquely you and influenced by no one โ€“ not even I can discourage you when you set your mind on an outfit. (Your DW would have approved of the leopard-print shirt dress, black leggings and black leather jacket, by the way.)
Your heart and flair for dramatics are always on point. Even if you forget a step or two, by golly, you can NAIL that final pose. 
When you were a baby, you had a twinkle in your bright shiny eyes. One that still shines through in your happy moments. 
You have your share of sadness and frustration, tooโ€ฆfrustration when you canโ€™t find the right words frustration when we donโ€™t โ€œgetโ€ what you are asking, frustration when you canโ€™t find the right socks or the right outfit or when there is nothing on the menu that you like and in the โ€œwhy donโ€™t I like more foodsโ€ and the โ€œnobody understands meโ€ moments.
And those are ok, as are the tears. 
Because from all of it, you are learning who you are. And we are discovering who you are along with you. 
You are the girl with the big heart.
The girl who loves more than words can say and squeezes can be tolerated. 
You are the girl who misses all the friends she has made, is excited about making  new ones, and appreciates them all โ€“ even the boy you loaned your sweater to because he was cold in class got sick wearing your sweater. (Ms. Weinstein said that you were so concerned about his well-being, that you didnโ€™t mind if he got germs on your sweater.) You never cease to amaze me. 
You are the girl who feels deeply, who writes notes to her brother that start โ€œIโ€™m sorry if Iโ€™ve been a bad sister, I love you and I will try harderโ€ and who makes Rainbow & Butterfly bracelet to apologize and to show love and appreciation. 
You are our baby girl, and will always be, (even when you have your own, but lets not rush ahead just yet.)
With all the change that youโ€™ve been through in the past year, may this year be the best one yet. I canโ€™t wait to see what lies ahead for you. 
I love you, baby.
Happy Birthday.

Never Ever Give Up!!!

๐Ÿ›‘ Stop giving up on yourself…

Believe in yourself completely. Trust the process of your life, and understand deeply that when you know what you want for your life, it’s in your hands to plan, create, make choices, and take the actions ๐Ÿšจnecessary to get there.

When you step outside of your comfort zone, let go of all the self-doubt, negativity from the naysayers and start trusting in the process… watch how far youโ€™ll go!

๐Ÿ›‘STOP sitting in your ideas ๐Ÿ’กand sleeping ๐Ÿ˜ด on your Dreams ๐Ÿ’ญ. Thereโ€™s MORE in you than you think!

I used to be one of those people that said โ€œone day I want to…,โ€ โ€œI wish I could…,โ€ or โ€œwhen I get to this point, Iโ€™m going to…โ€ SMH…๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Then one day I woke up and asked myself: What if tomorrow never comes? What if today is my last day? What if that story or business Iโ€™m sitting on is the key to change or save someoneโ€™s life TODAY? ๐Ÿค”

For almost 10 years, Kisha Shantell Productions & Khyli’s Tangled World have been in the making. Now, Iโ€™m finally executing all of my ideas. Iโ€™m BUILDING my DREAM. Iโ€™m busy building the foundation of my acting, writing, directing & producing career brick by brick ๐Ÿงฑ with elegance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ and ambiance ๐ŸŒŸ. My goal is to build โ€œThe Kisha Shantellโ€ ๐Ÿ’ซBRAND and EMPIRE! โœจ

๐Ÿ—ฃIโ€™m using my voice, writing and telling signature stories and sharing insight on the life lessons that have allowed me to get to this point where I am currently.

I may not know much, but what I do know for sure is that others can learn from what youโ€™ve lived through! Not only can you inspire others with your story, but youโ€™re able to provide solutions and offer results when you can teach from what youโ€™ve experienced. ๐Ÿ“–

3 Steps to making your DREAMS a REALITY

Believe in Yourself!

Invest in your Brand!

Take that leap and go for it.

๐ŸšฆStop placing limits on your Dreams… In order to make your dreams become a reality, you have to stay consistent. You need to constantly talk about it. Tell people what youโ€™re looking for. Let people know why youโ€™re unique. What makes you stand out from the rest. Donโ€™t be afraid to talk about what makes you happy.

You become what you believe๐Ÿ”‘

.

.

.

The moment you begin to see yourself higher, so will the rest of the world. When you set an intention for greater, that’s when you’ll find it. When you start to think bigger, that’s when bigger becomes available to you. See your self on that next level. Then, prepare for it. Before you know it, the next level will come looking for you.

You are a CREATOR. Consume less!

For those with a business who struggle with posting on social media (free or paid!):

First, if youโ€™re in business in any capacity, you are a creator. Even for those not in business, you are creating daily whether it be creating a customer service experience, managing the products that help others create, etc.โฃ

โฃ

With that said:โฃ

โฃ

1. Create more than you scroll. If you are constantly scrolling without a thought of what is next for you, thatโ€™s a problem. You have to think about the things you were born to do!โฃ

โฃ

2. If you are currently creating, all of the subliminal messages and things planted in your subconscious from scrolling on social media and constantly consuming are blocking your original thoughts! Have some quiet time so your vision can shine through.โฃ

โฃ

3. If social media is a part of what fuels your business, you MUST be focused on creating content, engaging, and strategizing more than catching up on the latest celebrity news and lurking on your ex. โฃ

โฃ

4. Even if you are being intentional with what you consume, the quiet time is still important. I got caught up in listening to podcasts and YouTube how toโ€™s thinking I was feeding my mind to help get clarity in my business. WRONG! Yes, research and learning from others is important to do, but donโ€™t do it so much that you drown out your own voice.โฃ

โฃ

CREATE more, CONSUME less!
