She is the cheese to my macaroni, the gravy on my mashed potatoes and the caramel drizzle in my macchiato.

I have been following Ms. Yetti Ajayi-Obe for over four years and she has single handedly changed my life. Her blunt and relatable honesty has coached me through so many days where I wanted to be extremely hard on myself. She cuts through the inevitable polite mask most people wear and goes straight to the heart of the matter. Go follow her blog YettiSays: http://yettisays.com/  Like right now.

Everyday our minds are filled with images that scream at us from the television, magazines, newspapers, internet and even our own mirrors.  We buy into that idea that we are just not “good enough” so we must use whatever new product, fashion, or other idea is going to make us “better.”

Since it has become so easy to find ourselves feeling “less than” everyone else, Yetti started her organization “Certified 10”.  She is using her difficult and victorious experiences to reach out to help other women.  She says, Certified 10 is “the movement that redefines what it means to be the ‘full package’ and encourages women of all ages to delineate why they are the perfect score!

Her new organization is so groundbreaking because too many women suffer with self-esteem issues. Yetti firmly believes that the positive mental health of an individual is supremely important for health in all other ways of society.

This is a universal truth that should be embedded in the hearts and minds of women from the time they are little girls.  Every person is given talents and experiences in this life to learn, to grow, and ultimately, to help others.  To find out more information about Certified 10 you can check out https://www.facebook.com/thecertified10  or http://instagram.com/thecertified10

I took a trip to New York to attend a Certified 10 #Back2Basics event and it was freaking AWESOMENESS.

My favorite quote this year from Yetti on love:

“I want to be understood. Read me like a book. Maybe not immediately, but when you get there, I want you to love the pages of my crazy, sexy, cool. I want you to study them. Connect the dots and admire the flaws. Don’t correct them just yet. Let them simmer for a while, and leave your notes written on the side. Highlight my happiness. Underline my insecurities. Make these pages your bed time reading. Leave your fingerprints all over these pages. Know my pages by heart. And then when you’re ready, I invite you to write a few of your own. That’s my kind of love.”

Yetti is a mover and a shaker.  She’s one of those women who affect the lives of many other women simply through her sheer strength of will.  She is a positive force for change and definitely a woman I admire!
