You must take care of yourself before you can take care of someone else. Doing so, can be ensuring you are in a good head space to pour into someone else’s life. Remember it is OK to take a break!
This topic has been on my mind for some weeks now. While having a girl chat with a best-friend of mine we discussed the importance of taking care of ourselves so we can be well for others: MORE SELF CARE. Continue reading “4 Things That Helps To Keep a Full Cup”
My first adventure to Costa Rica was with Under 30 Experiences ( U30X) which was unforgettable and a feeling that is almost indescribably. Because I decided to travel with U30X all the planning was done for me, I meet new people, and I was able to awaken emotions/feelings that I have been sleeping on.
The travel company basically took all of the stress and tasks away from planning my own trip. Everyday was filled with exciting places to eat, gorgeous views, and outdoor adrenaline packed activities. Some of those activities included zip lining through the rain forest with Sky Adventure, relaxing in the hot springs, hiking up mountains, visiting secret beaches, repelling down water falls with Quepos Canyoning, kayaking, water rafting, yoga, and exploring city areas.

There is so much waiting for you outside of your comfort zone! Sometimes we get so complacent in our current position and let fear of failure keep us from going after things that we want. However, once you step outside of your comfort zone you will be fueled with ambition, motivation, and fearless behaviors. Take chances, push yourself, and stay focused on your goals. The comfort zone is not for you. Period!
One night in Costa Rica my thoughts were every where as I swung back and forth in my hammock. I reflected on my day and how I wished I had a few more days at the lovely bungalow at Rancho Margot. My thoughts went from what I did that day, when will I visit the lovely Costa Rica again, my love life, my career, family, and my future. My thoughts started racing so much that I placed them on paper, and I now I want to share them with you…

2019 is here and running! Meanwhile, I’m still reflecting on last year! 2018 was a year of realization for me. Life is strange and it’s truly a journey but every journey prepares you for whatever is coming next. Throughout the year I had aw-ha moments which made me realize things such as self determination, goal execution, friendships, money, and the list can go on.
I always knew I was a strong and highly educated black woman. However, one day I was dancing in my living room, by myself, to Grown Woman by Beyonce’ when I realized I’m A STRONG, HIGHLY EDUCATED and AMBITIOUS BLACK WOMAN Continue reading “2018 Realization!”
Before we go over the itinerary that Sam and I used, I’d like to give five general tips about traveling to Mexico City too.
The weather is mostly mild and sunny year round, but the altitude (over 7000 ft above sea level) means it’s windy and sudden storms can take you by surprise— bring easy layers and comfortable tennis shoes.
Don’t try to dress down here. By all means wear whatever you please, but know that Mexico City is very well dressed, basically everywhere. The only place I didn’t see blazers was hiking Teotihuacan’s pyramids.
Many restaurants are wonderful here, but the magic is in the carts. Almost every street cart and bodega is making delicious, fresh meats and tortas. You’ll see tents full of suited lunch break bankers sitting on plastic stools huddled over a plate of steaming al pastor tacos.
