Temple #60 I have been to! Orlando Florida! . . .
Love God first, love people and yourself.
Start where you are, use what you have & do what you can!
Obstacles become opportunities.
If he leads you to it he will lead you through it.
Look forward. Your troubles and sorrows are very real, but they will not last forever.

My move to #lasvegas was literally me starting all over from nothing. When I left my ex husband in 2015...he kept the house and everything in it. I then moved to Atlanta, New Orleans, and eventually back to New York...before settling here a few months ago. (I ALMOST moved overseas) while I was seeking a place to belong- It made no sense to drag things along with me. Most times I was somewhere in the world touring anyway. (I tend to tour 10-11 months out of the year) so, I wasn’t really concerned about all of my worldly possessions. (I lost one storage unit one time that broke my heart- it held memories that I can never get back. I still have some clothes and #tourmemorabilia in a storage unit in #NYC that I need to get out, and fly out here, but for the most part...I don’t own much anymore) I even sold my car. I’ve lived a truly transient lifestyle over the last 10 years while chasing and building this dream. So putting my roots down somewhere is actually a pretty big deal. And in Vegas of all places...I NEVER saw that happening. But, it’s home. And one of the things that I am slowly enjoying doing while I’m home (for about 38 more days) is furnishing and decorating my safe haven: my space. Piece by piece. It’s like this #midcenturymodern#industrial#modern#transitional#scandanavian#oldhollywoodglam#eclectic thing I’ve got going on. If I don’t love it- I don’t buy it. Period. My close friends know how much I enjoy #interiordesign and take a lot of #pride in my home. I’m actually a #homebody and love staying in my #bed in my #pjs and my #afro all day. It’s how I am most creative and at rest. I love being surrounded by beautiful things and the people that I love. Slowly #vegas is becoming home. It’s been a long time. But, finally...The queen has her castle. #jjthames#tourlife#theartistlife#authenticliving#soulsorbet#vegaslife#vegaslocal#egyptian#artwork
