“Washed Away: From Darkness to Light.” Former Model Nikki Dubose Tells Her Story in New Book

Former model Nikki DuBose’ face has excellent bone structure complimented by golden brown hair that fall past her shoulders.

Expectations

Why do we set expectations? I’ve thought about this question quite often recently. Expectations seem kind of like a goal at first; a visualization of how the reality of a situation might play out.

Whenever you see a confident person, it’s easy to pick up on their incredible strength and courage, and to see the positive attitude shining brightly from their face. But what you don’t see is the journey it took to get to that point. Because, you see, confidence is an ongoing journey, a daily battle in which you choose to fight …

It’s OK To Look Back Sometimes

It’s ok to look back sometimes. Life is full of adventures; but also challenges and moments that will make you question what it’s all worth. We’ve all been there, and we’ve all gotten through them.
