Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello, my name is Rickie. I am 25 and just moved to Arizona from Alaska. I’ve lived in Alaska my whole life and moving was honestly the best decision I have made. So far I’m loving the weather, the sun, the energy and the drive of everyone I meet. I have started school for esthetics and in the process have created a brand called “Pretty By Rickie” you find me on Instagram and my website www.prettybyrickie.com. I’ve lived a very eventful life, lost of experiences, lots of fun and lots of adventure. I spend more of my days at school, work, gym, working on my brand, school work lol reading and writing. I like to be outdoors, in the, on water, on beaches or where ever the day takes me.
What Inspires You Every day? : Myself. My family. My best friend. My heart. Every day is new and full of ways to be inspired and reach new heights. I always try to find the little things to be inspired by, the things that bring me joy. Make me say “wow I love that” I don’t think I could ever confine what inspires me into one word. I’m inspired to be the best me possible on any given day. Faith, love and movement.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Never let your heart go hard.
Comparison is the thief of joy.
God removes to replace.
I choose peace instead of this.
We as humans internalize so much emotion and the construct media has build around how we love, live, how fast were moving in life. No one stops to smell the flowers, it’s so important to be thankful for the things you have and that are around us. Love openly, fearlessly. And Stop comparing your life to the life of others.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal is live my life 100% authenticity. To build people up with care and compassion. To be able to build my career and live my life in abundance. To be able to spend my days making people feel ther best selves. To no longer internalize myself, when other project. To move with grace. With ease. To be able to speak from vulnerability and strength. My goal in life is to be the best me I set out to be. To be abundant in financials, love, faith and growth in all areas of my life.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic started out hard. I lost my father and with all the constrictions I had to handle his whole passing alone. Only one in the hospital, the morgue. To see him, to give him his last kiss. It hindered my relationship and our ability to be out ans socialize and connect where both of us are very strong in our personalities. I moved states, I let go of everything. The pandemic really taught me that everything is temporary and tho others are around. At the end of the day it’s YOU
What is a message you would like to give others? : Never be afraid to open your heart. Never be afraid to love out loud, to chase after your dreams. You are in charge of the life you create. Do not let it harden you, make you small. Go create, go be! Go adventure. Be YOU
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: If you live in Arizona I need more girlfriends lol hit me up
