Let’s just jump right in

” I been gone for a minute now I’m back with the jump off.” – LIL KIM

More specifically, I’ve been gone since February 9th 2016. That is the date of my last blog post. I can’t help but to laugh as I read it now. It seems as though I had it all figured out. I was confident that I could stay on a structured path of ” I got my shit together”. Little did I know there would be a roller coaster of events in the coming months that would teach me the power of adapting to what life throws your way. Nothing went according to plan. I fell in love, got pregnant with twins, high risk twins, and had an emergency C-section. I mothered my babies from the outside an incubator for their 3 month stay in the hospital’s NICU. I fell out of love, my body told me to stop eating meat, I randomly started getting eczema, I lowkey turned vegan, and eventually got my family back together. That traitorous journey has brought me back to the path I started on. I now have a new understanding of how I can truly live holistically. All while broke, tired, and with no time to spare. So come, take your jacket off and stay awhile. I have plenty to share, join the conversation.

Missing in Action

Hey wonderful ladies,

It’s been a good little minute since my last post. You could say I’ve been MIA. What have I been up to? Well I’ve been around, working long hours, going through writers block, and feeling uninspired. But I’m back and I’m better! I’m regaining my drive. Patience is not my strong suit. I felt as though I should have been getting a better response to my writing. I am learning that it takes time and the focus should be on owning my craft rather than recognition. Through that realization I have embarked on a journey to holistic living and self love. The two go hand in hand. I find that when you pay more attention to what goes in/on your body you develop a deeper appreciation for yourself. Know your worth! I alway say you can’t help others until you help yourself first. As I go through my holistic journey, I am focusing on 3 major areas: mind, body, and soul.

 Mind-Meditation has become a staple in my morning and nightly routine. Being self aware is very important. I handle situations differently when I have mental clarity. Less stress more progress. I am becoming more discipline. I have a schedule to adhere to. Exercise, cooking, meditation, and a little tv watching all need to take place in a short time frame before or after work.

 Body– I have always eaten pretty decent but now I am taking my diet very seriously. More raw clean eating and absolutly no processed foods. I eat organic as much as I can. I will slowly work towards becoming a pescetarian but for right now I’m taking baby steps lol but that’s only half the battle. when it comes to paying close attention our exterior we all know beauty products may be applied topically but they get absorbed into the skin and eventually the blood stream. It was Hard coming to this decision but if I am going to give 110% I had to go all the way. I have made the switch to only using all natural, non toxic, paraben free cosmetics. This includes makeup, nail polish, face, body, and hair products. The thought of giving way or trashing ALL my stuff was a little overwhelming but now I have a reason to shop and re up on a few things. With a little research I have a growing list of beauty brands who cater to the all natural consumer. In the end my skin will thank me.

 Soul– This is where everything comes together and the Self love starts to kick in. I am becoming a better woman from the inside out. All that I do is for me and no one else. Everyday is a “Me” day. I want to look to myself for validation instead of others. I believe that the universe rewards good behavior. I am learning to let go and and let God. I pray often and show appreciation for all my blessings.

So with that being said bare with me while I get my life and navigate through this new Journey. I will not be posting too much on here until i’m ready to present new works but you can follow me on twitter and instagram as I document my new holistic lifestyle. Lets all strive to glow inside and out, because everyday could be wonderful.

Be Wonderful

After the tears- Make everyday wonderful


 1. figure out the moral of the story

2. take that ending and turn it into a new beginning

its all about your mind state. keep a positive attitude

3. put a laser focus on your ultimate reality,perfect situation,dream/goals

its not selfish to want better for yourself and to progress through this

4. Micro manage the obstacles that you know you will have to overcome

this is where journaling comes into play. Break it down and map out what you want to do in life and how you plan on getting there.

After the tears- find the moral of the story

Bitter sweet may be the only word to describe your feelings at this stage. Bitter because you have lost a parent and were forced to deal with that pain and heartache. Sweet, well it’s hard to even fathom a silver lining in this situation but there is. No more pain or suffering. They are at peace and you can find joy in that. Now it’s up to us to live a healthy productive life that would make them proud and put a smile on their face. Be the best YOU you can be. What are your goals? What are your dreams? what makes you happy? It’s time to focus on building ourselves up. When you are 100% confident in your abilities everything you do will fall into place. In order to be successful you have to have yourself together first. It’s time to take a look at all the life lessons we have gained on this journey and put them to good use.

Because everyday can be wonderful,

I am here to guide, comfort,support, and encourage. I want to help you face your grief, work through it, and become a stronger person from it. I need something from you:

1. be open minded

2. always be empathetic to others (we should be able to comment and express ourselves freely)

3. track your progress- journal anywhere and everywhere. Write any and everything, Use your phone, write in a notebook, or on the computer which ever you prefer.

Express your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. When they are written down you can go back and examine yourself. Figure out what was going on in that moment and how to work through it.

4. Never hesitate to communicate with me. Email or message via social media are both welcome. I want to hear from you ! 🙂
