You guys know I'm far from perfect and "jumped from one relationship into another" until I pledged singleness a few months back, crazy part is I had been celibate for yearsssss but man life dealt with me and I just couldn't cope anymore!! Thank God for his grace, girl it's okay 😌if you've been through it & lost your sparkle, we got a challenge for yoooou, soooo it's the first day of August right, well we want you to start a hobby that makes you feel brand NEW.
