Dear Me: Another Letter To My Younger (25 Year Old) Self

It seems like just a few months ago I was celebrating the great 38, and now here I am again, another year older. Yes, today, I turn 39. I LOVE birthdays and I get excited about mine every year, but this year I’m so extra grateful to be able to celebrate another year in the land of the living. After a very eventful 2017 (some of which carried into early 2018), I decided to write another letter specifically to my 25…

I’m Going To Disney Social Media Moms Celebration 2018! #DisneySMMC

In less than 6 days, we’re headed to Walt Disney World for the 2018 Disney Social Media Moms Land & Sea Celebration. To say that I’m excited is an understatement. I had to hold off on posting about it here on the blog since we had a huge surprise planned for my Mom. Let’s just say #MissionAccomplished. When I first received the invite from the Disney team back in October 2017, I was pleasantly surprised. I was aware of the conference/celebration…

Why I Have Only ONE Major Goal for 2018

Happy New Year! I hope your 2018 is off to a good start. I don’t know about you, but I’m so grateful that I made it see another year. Hands down, 2017 was THE MOST challenging year of my life. While there were many great things that happened, for most of the year I was dealing with health issues that tested me to my core. I was tested in ways I’ve never been tested before. My health was tested, my…

Embracing The Detours: When God Takes You On The Scenic Route

Embracing the Detours: When God takes you on the scenic route through life. This one sentence could possibly sum up my whole life, thus far. While this post isn’t about my life story, this phrase has pretty much been the story of my life for the first quarter of 2017. Last week I did a #PassTheScope/Facebook LIVE video titled, “When The SOAR is Slow“. It was partly my first quarter in review, as I reflected on the first three months…

Making A Difference Through The Gift of Light #GiveBrighter

I lived with my maternal grandparents from birth until I was about 8 years old. They lived in a small, rural village and for part of time that I lived there, there were no electrical lines which meant we didn’t have access to electricity. When the sun went down it was extremely dark and as a child growing up in Grenada, I remember being scared of the dark. When I got home from school I knew I had to get…

Success Does Not Happen By Accident – How You Can Attend Act Like A Success 2017

I am a member of the Act Like A Success Social Media Team and they provided me with compensation for this event. All thoughts and opinions expressed are mine. Two years ago I attended Steve Harvey’s SOAR Retreat in Miami. When the opportunity to be part of the blogger team was presented to me, I was actually on vacation in Grenada and considered not making the trip to Miami. I am so happy I quickly came to my senses and decided…

5 Things I Love About Being In My Thirties

Ahhh Spring! These last few weeks have been a doozy in a lot of ways so I’m really excited for Spring, warmer weather and the fact that I’m blessed with another year of life. Yes, it’s my birthday. I originally had another post idea for today but I decided to share 5 things I love about being in my 30s. I assumed that *most* people knew that I was not in my twenties or even early thirties, but some of the comments…
