WC: In the month of love we tend to focus our energy on giving love to another rather than embracing self love and what that really means. It’s hard to appreciate the beauty from within especially when you are bombarded with images of the perfect woman by the media. I’ve decided to focus on the topic of self love this month. So Shanice how important is self love to you ?
Shanice Remy: Self love is so important. I think a lot of it comes from self talk. I now try to talk to myself how I would talk to my bestie. I try to encourage myself instead of constantly putting myself down. I try to highlight the positives instead of the negatives and I make time for the simple things that make me happy.
WC: They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder however they forget to tell the beholder that you are also human and have insecurities aswell. Overcoming insecurities can be a daily struggle for some. What is the best way you overcome your insecurities ?
Shanice Remy: I think it’s courage. The courage to accept myself as I am. The courage to accept my shortfalls. The courage to face my fears. I sometimes feel so scared and insecure about the smallest of things, but I push myself to embrace them or do it anyway and I always feel better for it.
WC: What defines a beautiful person to you ?
Shanice Remy: A beautiful person has strength and courage, they are happy and authentic. A beautiful person thrives.
WC: Lets talk about your website, what type of content can my readers and others expect from you ?
Shanice Remy: My blog is all about living your best life. I hope to inspire young ambitious women to thrive in their life and career.
WC: Thats amazing. You’ve decided to name your website 9 to thrive, so im curious to know what inspires you to stick to your 9-5 ?
Shanice Remy:I’d ultimately like to have my own company and be free of the confines of a 9 to 5. But, while I’m working my 9-5 in marketing, it’s setting goals for myself that motivates me. I’m constantly setting goals big and small to keep me pushing forward and to keep me inspired.
WC: Where do you see yourself in 5 years ?
Shanice Remy: My big goal is to have my own company. I’m not sure what it will be selling yet, but when inspiration strikes I’ll launch something. In the mean time and in case it doesn’t happen within the next 5 years, I want to keep developing my marketing and leadership skills and continue rising through the ranks in my day job as a marketeer.
WC: Thank you so much for your participation. We look forward to your blog and all the inspirational information it brings.
