I see so many people out there struggling, in and out of an addiction, or dead end relationships, depressed with no real friends..
Community is the answer. Having great relationships is what makes life rich and all the hard things we have to go through tolerable. Community requires you to cultivate great relationships though. That means showing up for others when they need it, so that they show up for you when you need it. It’s not complicated but it does require work..
You can’t withdraw where you haven’t made deposits, it just doesn’t work like that. This is why at CityFam we volunteer regularly, and encourage our members to be there for each other, because we know one day they will need someone to be there for them. It’s the intelligent way to be selfish #cityfam #friendswithbetterbenefits #beintelligent

I was chatting with a friend recently and she mentioned she’s started asking herself “what would I do if I knew I would never get married?”
What dreams would she pursue? Where would she go? How would her choices be different if she weren’t waiting for her relationship status to change?
I thought, how often are we as single women guilty of making our life choices based on a man who hasn’t shown up yet?
We so often wonder if we will ever get married, not just because it’s a hope in our hearts, but because we would make different choices if we knew. And until we know the answer for certain, we let our wondering and our waiting trump all else.
We worry that taking a chance or changing our course will put finding our guy at risk. We feel we are better off to just stay put. We worry that we will make memories without a significant other and wonder what will be left to do when we do find someone. We are willing to put off our dreams or never pursue them at all waiting for just one dream to come true.
But a relationship does not define us. Our relationship status is not all that we are, and getting married is not the ultimate task we are put on this earth to do.
What adventures could we be missing out on if we keep waiting? What magical, awe inspiring moments will we never see? Will we just let our goals and passions fall by the wayside?
So I ask you, if you knew you would never get married, what would you do? Better yet, whether you get married or not, what do you want to do? Where do you feel called?
I encourage you today, whatever the answer to that question, go and do. Go and live this life TODAY.
I'm very transparent about my singleness - not err detail uhkay??!!! - but enough to let yall get a glimpse of who I am and where I stand. But when it comes to relationships, I'm very private. That being said, no announcements, pics or hints until engagement...preferably I'd rather just pop up like heeeey I'z married na...like yaaaas issa bae and a ring💍👰🏾
PS, that doesn't mean pics wouldn't be taken or folks wouldn't know...but it just wouldn't be shared on social media until it's real/official
One of the leads of our soon to be Houston chapter flew in to spend the weekend with us! It’s so cool connecting with people from all over the world and hearing their stories. Regardless of where they’re from, the struggles are the same everywhere. People are looking for community, genuine connections and healthy friendships to live their best lives now #cityfam #houstontexas
Picked up one of our Houston chapter leads today, she came into town for the weekend to meet the fam and learn the ropes. So cool to meet another like-minded person that resonated with our culture. Soon CityFam will be in the great state of Texas! 🤠 @thecityfam #everythingisbiggerintexas #friendswithbetterbenefits
The big question we asked ourselves when we started CityFam was, “Why are we doing this?” We answered, “Because positive change happens in the context of healthy relationships.” -
For me, CityFam is my way of helping others. I get to meet people where they’re at (not where I want them to be), give people fun things to do and the people to do them with (that won’t set them back from reaching their full potential), and give people opportunities to make a contribution by serving in their community (because that is a big part of what changed my life). If you haven’t plugged in yet DO IT. Trust me, it’s life-changing #cityfam #squadgoals #friendswithbetterbenefits
You cannot receive what you don’t allow. In fact, allowing is a prerequisite for receiving. In order to become more open to what the universe has to offer, give yourself permission to release an fear of making a mistake. (A mistake is simply a choice!) When you fear making a “mistake,” that fear is likely holding you back from trying something new. As you recite this mantra, close your eyes and imagine an open door or window. Allow yourself to feel the energy moving in and out of the opening, flowing, offering. - - Sherianna Boyle, MED, CAGS “Mantras Made Easy”
Heroes. Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization and make EVERYTHING we do possible. These amazing people are investing their Sunday morning/afternoon working beer portables 524, 527 & 544 🍺 at the Ravens game today to raise 💰for CityFam. Come see us if you’re here and support the fam! #ravens #cawcaw #participationequalsvalue
Life takes on new meaning when you
connect to a cause that’s greater than yourself. For me that cause is CityFam. It’s something I’m so uniquely gifted to do. I remember thinking when I left the world of promoting and stripping, “how could I be used? What do I have to offer?” All that is a lie from the enemy to keep you in bondage so you never step out towards reaching your destiny. Trust me, your purpose is bigger and better than you could possibly imagine and you are the only person that can do it. There has never been another person exactly like you, with your life experiences. And I promise you, when you start making a difference in the lives of others, YOU will come alive in a brand new way!
Btw, we are working beer portables 524, 527 and 547 at the game today. Come by if you’re here and support the Fam 🍺 🏈👭👬@thecityfam

Yes, the struggle is real. But in the midst of the hard, heavy, and confusing, we have a God who has provided a way for us to not only understand life, but to grow stronger and smarter through it all.
Welcome to November to Remember💃💃💃
