I'm usually always smiling because Yahweh/God remains my hope and restorer. Through Him and the art of perspective I've learned that if I change the way I look at things, the things I look at change. Happy New Year to all and I hope for nothing less than continued blessings, joy, and peace for myself and everyone connected to me. #SincerelyHolistic
You're safe and will always be okay not because of the absence of danger, but because of the presence of Yahweh. Continue to let Your unfailing love surround us all! 💫 • When my photographer took this we agreed this was an amazing shot! No coincidence here of how perfectly the light from the sun surrounded me.✨#ThrowBack
This is BY FAR the best tasting #VEGAN Protein Shake I've had to date! High in protein, made with plant-based🌱foods, low-carb, and high in many vitamins+minerals! And you know your girl checked the ingredients! Such a great grab and go option for pre or post workouts! #SkinDeepWithShan •#NotAnAd but @vega_team should hook a girl up 😭💞#VegaTeam
"Everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain. But you can't have a rainbow 🌈 without a little rain☔️." •👆🏽That's the face of when there's a new video up on my channel! Click the link in my bio to see what it's about!
#HELLODECEMBER Taking care of my soul is vital to my ability to function. My heart is so full that I have been able to make it this far, I don't look like what I've been through. Grateful for a new month, with new blessings! ✨FUN FACT✨: Biblically the number "8", signifies NEW beginnings and a NEW start. I believe 2018 is going to be an amazing year, especially with all the "NEW" things that can manifest! Believe it with me, and if you don't, FAITH IT TILL YOU MAKE IT!
Disclaimer: A very long post.😅 For months I prayed and cried to be full-time in my purpose. For months I was working at a pretty decent job as a supervisor, even got a raise, and was getting paid the highest salary in my agency (apart from the CEO of course). I was grateful for the money, but for the first time ever I understood what it meant to not feel fulfilled in a career/job, even when the "money was right". . I wanted to be in my purpose full-time. I wanted to be doing Sincerely Shans full-time! I kept feeling like Yahweh(God) was telling me to leave, but I was so scared that I wouldn't be able to be as financially stable. To make a long story short, the agency eventually closed down. They unfortunately ended up in court for a matter of issues, and I was left jobless. . I had no other choice at this point to be working on Sincerely Shans FULL-time! Not to mention, with various opportunities that came knocking at my door, I was able to grow my brand, fly to California, host my very first Women Brunch(which I still don't even know how I did!!), hit 10,000 subscribers, and since then I have never had to worry about a single bill being paid! Through simply working on my business, Sincerely Shans, everything has been taken care of! . I say this to say that when something is bound to happen, it will happen. Even if you don't listen completely to that still small voice inside of you, it will happen! Yahweh's(God) will supersedes every condition, every fear. . I'm learning to apply what I've learned from this experience to different areas of my life. At the end of the day if He's given you a gift to do something, room will be made for you to use it. If His will is for something to happen, it will happen. It's all just a matter of time. His time. I don't completely know what the future looks like, but I'm confidently taking each day one step at a time until He unfolds the rest. #LetTheChurchSayAmen #Favor #SharingMyStory #womanevolve ✨👍🏽
She's one of the main reasons why I do what I do - to give back to her(and daddy, too🤗). Say hello to my momma!! She put together the decor for all of my events. I can truly confidently say, for myself and everyone she's worked with, that once you ask her for help she'll give you her A-L-L. It doesn't matter who you are. She's so supportive, creative, and is a total fashionista. To know her is for her to love you, honestly! More pics from my ✨Women Only Brunch✨ on my Facebook page (@sincerelyshans)! Let's show my momma some love, wouldn't be here without her. 🤗 #SheCute lol
#SharingMyTestimony. Sometimes I say to myself “sheesh, I’m just 23 and feel like I’ve been through so much already”. A couple weeks ago I felt like giving up on Yahweh(God), because I couldn't understand why certain things were happening. I couldn't understand how I could love Him so much but it felt like He was allowing everything to fall apart. Nevertheless, I'm not ashamed to share that, because it was at that point that Yahweh(God) revealed Himself to me in a new way, and I gave my life BACK to him. Unfortunately, I believe it is at that point of frustration that many people have turned away from Him, and seek to fulfill their own happiness/desires, forgetting that He will never give more than we can bear- and in fact, He allows whatever to happen because we are strong enough to overcome it. . I say I gave my life "back to Him" because I realized that out of fear, I took control over SO many things that He wanted to take control of. It was in that moment that I rededicated myself and everything I had and attained, to Him. Since then, each day I've learned more about myself and why things happen. As I learn, I improve areas that need to be improved, address problems that need to be addressed, and let go of things that Yahweh(God) wants to control. This has been SO LIBERATING. . I came across this poster created by one of my favorite influential businesswoman @mayasworld and I just had to buy it! It’s a new addition to my apartment decor, but also a nice reminder to simply, TRUST Him in everything I do as I seek His purpose in every area of life. I’m learning to be still and be more accepting of allowing HIM to get the glory out of things in my life, and not myself. I’m learning that all(the good and the bad) things work together to bring myself and others closer to Him. I’m learning that all things work together for my good even when I can’t see it. I just got to love & trust Him, and allow Him to execute HIS purpose in my life. By doing that I've found where my joy and peace lies. Not in the things I have, but in Him.❤️
Continuous, earnest, prayers spoken in faith WILL bring great results! I love this bracelet because it's a simple reminder to take time in my day to unplug from work and pray. ❤️ Is something on your heart & mind? Take a break some time today to pray about it.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter or a smile. Remember, if life was easy you'd have no reason to remember who Yahweh(God) is. Everyday is a new beginning, take a deep breath, smile, and start again.
& Thats A Wrap! So Long California🌺. #illBeBack . I planned to release a video today but that probably won't come out until later on as I'm recovering from a little jet lag😓. Trying to get this mind+body back on track. . I have so much to say that will be shared, but to sum things up there's a new ✨SHANON✨ (and yes, my name is actually spelt with only two N's🤗) who is BLOSSOMING into a flower that Yahweh(God) so intricately desired me to be. A flower whose fragrance I hope will inspire others to blossom into their true authentic selves as well. A Shanon who isn't going to miss her bloom. ✨Stay Tuned✨

"Today I saw an eagle. He was flying in circles high in the sky. As I stared out of the window, I was caught in amazement. To see how he was soaring, without any care in the world of the chance that he could fall".- Sincerely Shans 🦅 When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagles alone avoids the storm by FLYING above it. In order to fly you have to let go of the world you're hanging on to. 🦅 In the storms of life may our hearts soar like an eagle. Those who TRUST in Yahweh(God) will find NEW strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31)
When life is sweet say thank you + celebrate, when life is bitter say thank you + grow🌪.
Chasing Purpose. • I've learned that the most important thing in life is having a relationship with Yahweh(God). It's cliche, it may make you feel uncomfortable around your friends, but it's where your purpose lies. It's where you find the meaning of life. It's your constant confidant. Ultimately, it's what will keep your mind, body, and soul. 🌼#WholeAndOrganic #organicandwhole

I stopped looking for light + decided to become it myself. Sometimes it's not about being the sun that brightens up someone else's life, but rather to be the moon that brightens up your own life in the darkest of moments.

Beyond excited that I got to meet a fellow Youtuber and business woman @sunkissalba! Also happy that even her husband and I got to have a great conversation about health awareness, autism, & holistic living! To top everything off I was able to purchase her amazing Radiant Glow Oil that she collaborated with #DERMAE @dermae on, that I gifted to my mom!
Stuff Happens! It's inevitable. But you have the CONTROL over how you're going to respond to it. You also have the control over your emotions, don't give that control to anything else. The next time something crappy happens to you, evaluate the many options of reactions you have & choose the best one for YOU that will give you PEACE ✌️.
If you begin thanking Yahweh/God for even the smallest of things He will give you more reasons to thank Him. He loves praises, and inhabits the praises of His people. In a world where there is so much uncertainty with things, people, and circumstances, it’s so important to stay grounded in Him, and know that every GOOD thing comes from Him. He’s my only constant and he sure knows how to keep this smile from fading… #StayGrounded #WhereIsYourFoundation ? More pics & inspo coming soon!
Curry chick peas(✔️Protein) Brown rice(✔️Carbs) with a side of Avocado(✔️Healthy Fat/Oil) --- Ensuring that your meals are balanced are crucial for a healthy lifestyle. You need carbs!! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. However, opting for healthy carbs (such as whole fruits, vegetables, and legumes) over "unhealthy carbs(like white bread, white rices, etc.) is what's key. ---- Getting your protein, carbohydrates, and yes, healthy FATS in will ensure that your body absorbs all the proper nutrients. How are you eating healthy today?
When you have LESS resources it forces you to use what you have. From there a foundation is set for creativity and uniqueness to begin to manifest. As you pursue your goals, passions, & desires, make use of what you have and don't get discouraged about the things you hope to acquire. One day those things will come, but until then execute greatness with what already exists. 👌🏽 ••• To be content doesn't mean you don't desire more, it means you're thankful for what you have and patient for what's to come.
Three things you cannot recover; a word after it's said, time after it's gone, & a moment after it's missed. --- As we prepare to step into fall and go into the last quarter of the year, try your best to turn a new page - like the leaves turn colors - to make time for the things that matter most, share moments with the people you love, and pronounce words that will uplift. #HAPPYSEPTEMBER

Today take the time to unplug. Sit back, relax, do something that will not only take your body away from work, but also your mind. This is the day that was made to UNPLUG. Leave everything in the Fathers hands and He will work things out for you. Without faith, it is impossible to please Him. Believe and Allow Him To Work.
"You are beautiful, my love. There is no flaw in you. The uniqueness of your being exudes something so magnificent that one simply cannot replicate. To duplicate they may try, but as they gaze at your pulchritudinous beauty they soon realize it cannot be copied. So shine, let your light so shine before others. You do not need to be like the one you may admire, or even see beside you, all you need to be is your true authentic self. For in authenticity there is no flaw." - Sincerely Shans #QuickWrite #Poetry #Ventilation #BeInspired #LiveHolistically #BILH
