Welcome to the October 2019 issue of Queen Size Magazine.
I recently read a post on instagram (I can’t recall whose page is was to give credit, so please forgive me), the quite said “I asked God, ‘Why are you taking me through troubled water?’ He replied, ‘Because your enemies can’t swim’.” This quote resonated in my spirit and it reminded me that we often have to go through things to learn a lesson. It also reminded me that we have to let go of things and people that we “think” have our best interests at heart. I often read about people complaining about losing “family and friends” as they begin to grow in their businesses and careers. I have been through this and as much as it pains us to move on from people and things, they may actually be the very thing that is holding us back. There are people in our lives that are meant to be with us for certain reasons. Find those reasons and appreciate them. Growing up often means growing apart; and it doesn’t always need to be in negative ways.
I was introduced to our cover model, Crystal Alexis, by Jose Pagan. I reached out to him to collaborate with on his recent tour. But then I saw Crystal and was immediately intrigued. I wanted to know HER story because her confidence screamed through her images. I am always interested in learning about people and how they overcome their own personal hurdles; because we all have them. Please check out her story so eloquently told by HER. Be sure to also check out the great articles and spotlights; you may recognize someone you know.
As with every issue, I truly thank each and every person that had a hand in making Queen Size Magazine possible. And on behalf of myself and Queen Size Magazine, I would like to thank all of our readers; without you we would not still be here.
