I had the chance to interview an inspiring Entrepreneur who is also one of my best friends. She established The Heart of Appreciation, LLC which is an organization with a goal “to help people of all ages and genders have a consistent healthy lifestyle mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.” Antoinette “Toni” Jackson is a woman of many hats. She is a life coach, educator, fitness instructor, wardrobe consultant and a woman of GOD. Her faith illuminates and is the core of her drive and The Heart of Appreciation. Toni delivers to her clients and audiences daily devotionals and empowering videos that remind you of how important, loved and special YOU are no matter what others may think of you. The Heart of Appreciate, LLC is an organization that gives back to help enrich the community and help individuals to truly love themselves.
You know the old saying “treat others how you would like to be treated”. Of course you do. Do we all do that? Of course we don’t. When people in our lives or even strangers treat us poorly, it’s hard to be friendly and caring in return. If you find yourself in a situation where someone is not treating you with love and respect and you have done nothing wrong, please understand that what they are doing to you has nothing to do with YOU. Don’t let cruelty from others turn you into something you’re not. Don’t be spiteful or seek revenge. Instead, BE THE TYPE OF PERSON YOU WANT TO MEET. Be caring, encouraging and a joy to be around. Yes we all get mad but don’t let adversity consume you.
