In college, I most preferred taking in-class learning.

Mind you, I’ve always been the in-class learner and really was that girl in your high school class that, yes, did enjoy learning in class. The teacher’s pet. LOL.

I sat mostly in the front the first days of school. I listened well. And I actually would become irritated when…


Have you ever noticed another person smiling ear to ear, head held high, walking with a poised stance, all of it done with an epic glow?

That person must have such great confidence. Good for her, you think to yourself. The next thought proceeds, I wonder how she got there…


One night, I woke up in Prague.

After what seemed like a day of traveling by bus somewhere in Europe, I ended up at my next destination, Prague, Czech Republic.

I woke up that evening perplexed at the sight of where I was compared to the fields of passing land and tall grass I remembered falling asleep…


What was it about showing up online or in spaces, in general, that freak us out?

That’s kind of a loaded question.

I’ve been pondering on this question this week. The concept of being seen and what that entails came up during a Mastermind I had with soulpreneur creatives. …


Problem: Making too many damn excuses.

The headline says it all. And if you’re anything like me, you probably clicked on this to figure out the solution to your problem.

Problem: Making too many damn excuses.

How often do we waste time entertaining our minds by making excuses? Probably a lot.

If there’s anybody who’s “pro” at self-sabotaging, it’s me.

Let me expand a bit.

I’m a bit of an ambitious person. I think I’ve always known this about myself. A seeker. A dreamer. Always wanting more and wanting different. To experience greater things.

When I was 11 going on 12, I was in the 6th grade. And as I…


Something I’ve been thinking about is trust and all that comes with it.

Trust is an interesting concept.

Many may have noticed their own trust issues in life whether they’re going through those same issues within a relationship — a partner, a family member, or a friend.

Changes can be scary. Or it can be beautiful… What do you choose?

I’ve been pondering our relationship to change and how it affects each of us. When you get out of your comfort zone, how do you feel?

I go back in time to when I first moved to Paris. Truthfully, at the time, I regretted not having purchased the same flights…


Something I’m trying to do more of is wake up earlier. So far, it’s not perfect.

It’s actually been more around 6am these days. But that’s okay. It takes practice and the right intention.

Although I have my morning routines mostly down, I’m trying my best not to fall back into old patterns. I just want to be aware, at all times, of my surroundings and…

These days, I vibrate high and low, which is normal in life. The duality of it all reminds me to be humble and grateful. I’m grateful that I…
