Caregiving

It is so important as a caregiver not to become so enmeshed in the role that you forget yourself. It's neither good for you nor your loved one.

Day 2- "Small Moments Can Lead To Great Happiness"

29 Days To Balance & Fulfillment in 2015

Hello! How are you doing? I’m just sitting down at 9:13pm to type this post, and I’m tired and excited smile. This has been a crazy day. It’s always amazing to me what we can do when we set our mind to accomplishing certain tasks or goals. Since I left work at 5:40pm; I’ve run an errand for my mom, stopped by the grocery store, made myself dinner (falafels and hummus #VeganYummy in my Tummy wink), cooked dinner for tomorrow, flat twisted my hair, bonded with my mom & sister, and now sit in bed typing up this post. All I can say is, “caregivers rock!” These are the moments that remind me of how much we do, and inspire me to devote time to being balanced and fulfilled.

Day 1- It's Time To Get Real !

30 Days To Balance & Happiness In 2015

Hello everyone! We made it! It’s December 1st, and it’s the first day on our journey to balance and fulfillment in 2015. I’m so excited about all of the possibilities, and I’m super excited to share this journey with you. They say it takes “a village” to raise a child. Well, it takes the entire “world wide web” and a whole lot of guts to birth a dream smile. So, let’s get started.

In order to start planning where we’re going, we have to acknowledge where we came from. This is not about geography. This is about celebrating the successes, forgiving the mistakes, embracing and letting go of our fears, and making the decision to go forward completely open to new experiences. This is the hardest area for most people, myself included.

Will You Take The Journey With Me?

31 Days To Balance & Happiness In 2015

Hello everyone! I feel like it’s been a lifetime since I’ve sat down, and put together a post. Please forgive me for the lapse. With all the demands of life (family,work,procrastination, & training for my first half marathon (Diva St. Augustine 12/7), I took a quick little "blog vacation". Well, as Jay-Z would say, “I guess I got my swagger back” wink. That means I’m ready to start plotting out what I want to accomplish in 2015, and I want you to plan with me smile.

"Rise And Shine! Our Lives Are Waiting For Us!

Oprah's Live The Life You Want Tour, Pt. 2 Recap

When I completed the first day of Oprah’s Live The Life You Want Tour, I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to go to sleep, and get back up again for the next day. Have you ever had one of those moments where you were so filled with anticipation to see what the next day held, that sleep was the last thing on your mind? You were just ready for the next opportunity to feel or experience that moment again. I didn’t realize then how befitting that feeling was going to turn out to be.

Oprah's Live The Life You Want Tour Miami Recap, Pt. 1

I’m so excited to be sitting here typing up my recap from Oprah’s “Live The Life You Want Tour”. First, I must thank God for the opportunity to attend. It was truly him that gave me access to this awesome event. Secondly, I must tell you “I got my life”. I got my life, and so much more out of this event. There is just so much that I have to share with you, and I need to let you know this is probably going to be a three-part recap.

I’ve thought about it, and I can’t squeeze the “most amazing two days of my life” into one post. I want to do this justice, and make sure I'm sharing all of the "gifts" I received  this weekend. You know Oprah is known for her generosity. But, the way she “poured” into us this weekend, no amount of money will ever compare.
