This blog is a personal account of my travels throughout the world as part of my journey to unconditional self love and in service and passion of women entrepreneurs that I have had the privilege of meeting, sharing and learning from!
Wake up and Live
Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding
through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and
jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and

I am truly grateful for the opportunity
So as I am going through the planning, I lend a friend of mine my car, with some hesitation I might add , as this friend got into an accident with my car before and that was that! Anyways, I get a message, the friend has had another accident! I'm like "no way" ok ok what's the lesson here? I am still processing it!

Same person! Obviously its no to borrowing the car but there is another lesson in there that I am going to sit still today to determine what it is! Focusing now on solutions!
So if you see me blazing down your road in a busted up car, that's why!

There is so much going on in the world right now, from hurricanes wiping out islands, to leaders who respond like they aren't leading, to mass shootings, to killing black folks and the list goes on and on till the break of dawn
It is enough to get one disjointed, disappointed and anxious. Truth be told I am at that point. Wht next? I have decided that I must contribute to the solution, I have no clue what THE solution is but I know what my solution is- to be the best me, to make where I am better than when I found it, to stop being selfish, to live as though there are other people and living beings on the planet.

using less plastic bags
giving to charity both financial and time
be my best - do my best - be…

finished eating the plate of posho and spinach. She asked me, “Why do you play
small?” my first reaction was that she
was talking about my weight. I responded, “I play small because I work out” and
I chuckled. She gave me a blank stare! “Do you know that
you have a responsibility to yourself, to your ancestors, to your spirit?” Ok
now it was getting serious, now it was time for me to pay attention. “What do you mean?” “It
is your responsibility to excel, to glow, to do what you know you can do. “It
makes no sense holding it all back! What are you saving it for? Why do you give
one single thought to what other people think? Those who are for you and what
