Acceptance

Mindful Eating

Becoming more health conscious this year has been beyond empowering. Even though I have such a long way to go, I’ve been feeling like the ultimate cleansed goddess underneath my skin… What we choose to consume makes such a difference in our quality of life.

Sade, Women and Nature

There is power in music. Which is one of the reasons why I admire Sade. Her words vibrate through my soul and feed my subconscious pure goodness. One’s choice of music can truly have an impact on their character and overall life. As a young teenager, listening to Sade, I learned the significance of nature. I began to understand that…

Stepping Outside Your Emotions

It’s easy to get caught up in the emotions we feel. This usually leads to clouded judgment which can become nearly impossible to clear up. I’ve caught myself many times making bad decisions or arriving at false conclusions all because my perception was tainted with other things going on in my life. If you aren’t…
