so last night as we partied and celebrated an important moment in both our present and history, everyone around me was like, “I’m not going to work/school!!” and in the moment, i fell into not wanting to go to…

but sleeping on something allows you to awake with new revelations and truths…

i’m going to work today and i’m going to work my ass off harder today then i have on any other day. why? it’s not because a black man won the United States presidency.

does this even need a caption?

does this even need a caption?

it’s because of what this man stands for. he triumphed over doubt, death threats, and hundreds of years of a glass ceiling built before him and by upholding his character and integrity, that man inspired a nation to believe in him so much that he shattered that ceiling proving that hard work and dedication go hard in America.

obama didn’t take frivolous time off during his campaign and surely i’m not going to do so now either. he has been such a great demonstration of what it means to have character and integrity and to not compromise it while faced with others who don’t have either to stand on. he is an awesome role model and i’m so happy to have him as one!!! so until i’m president of something screaming out “YES WE CAN”, ladebelle will be at work…





wanted to share my FAVORITE part of obama’s speech last night:

“And tonight, I think about all that she’s seen throughout her century in America — the heartache and the hope; the struggle and the progress; the times we were told that we can’t, and the people who pressed on with that American creed: Yes we can.”

…so powerful…


  1. ASHE!!

  2. I am so blessed to see this day in history. Words can not express the feelings of joy and inspiration that I feel; not only for President Obama but for America as well. I am truly proud to be an American. Let this triumph be the begnning of a new chapter in our lives…

    Those three special words mean so much to me as it should for you and now I live to see them come into fruition…
    “Yes We Can”

    May those words become deeply embedded within your soul…

  3. AMEN! I’ll have to forward you the Obama Etiquette note—too funny. But one of the rules were: No taking off Wednesday…LoL. I agree, Obama sets the standard so high for excellence and I wouldn’t feel right, taking off as a tribute to his winning. I’d rather pay tribute by being at work today (as I am) am working towards being a more successful, responsible and diligent worker. Great POST!
