Things to be HAPPY about // A-Z Gratitude Challenge

Hey Guys!

It’s the last day of May and before we enter June, *half way through 2017, whoa* I just want to take a moment and recognize all the things I have to be thankful/happy for. So here’s a little alphabet challenge:

A-Z Gratitude Challenge:

A – Art; the only way I know how to express myself, whether it’s writing, drawing, painting, or creating

B – Blogging + Books; I’m happy to have found an outlet where I can share my thoughts and inspire people. For writers who also have the power of inspiring others and spreading their wisdom through books.

C – Carnival; A Caribbean festival which happens in the Summer for our island (Antigua). The first time I participated in the parade wearing a costume it felt magical. I love this experience! * can’t wait to do it in other parts of the region/world* Continue reading “Things to be HAPPY about // A-Z Gratitude Challenge”

Motivation Monday #8 // “You never say yes to anything.”

Hey Guys!
Happy Monday, no blues round here!

If you follow me on Instagram you’d know that I finally got two books that have been on my Book List for months now. Well, since I watched GirlBoss on Netflix and got the gist of it I decided to start with Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes.

Even though I’m pretty sure I can read through this book quickly, I decided to take my time with it. Lo and behold the first chapter already brought me inspiration, which is why you’re now reading this.

Let’s Talk: Time

Hey Guys!!

Are we really half way through May? *Well technically more than half.*
Am I the only one who feels like 2017 is zooming by?
It honestly feels like so much has happened and frightening to know that more is still to come.

Time is a funny subject.

“Everything takes time.”

“Time waits on no man.”

There are quotes which show you that time is limited and if you want to achieve something you need to start acting now. Then there are others which tell you to slow down, appreciate the current moment because good things take time.
Isn’t this some sort of contradiction? Continue reading “Let’s Talk: Time”

85 Years of Growth

Two Sundays ago I attended a Thanksgiving Service on behalf of the Girl Guides Association of Antigua and Barbuda. It was their 85th Anniversary under the theme GROW.

As a member of the 1st Antigua Girl Guides Unit, the first company to be established in Antigua we are also celebrating 85 years. Attending the service brought back many memories of my years as a girl guide, along with seeing other old members. Continue reading “85 Years of Growth”

Good Vibes at Ana’s

Hey Guys!!

We’re already in the third week of May which means that SUMMER is close. My motto for this year is “Good Vibes Only“; no time for “bad vibes” or anything negative.

One of my good friends came home to Antigua for the week and before he left I wanted to spend a little time with him. We went out on Friday for drinks and other shenanigans then decided to chill on Saturday for lunch.

After much deliberation we settled for Ana’s on the Beach.

Motivation Monday #7 // “Adulthood is Where Dreams go to Die”

MM

It’s been a while, huh?
How do you motivate others when you yourself have no motivation?

However, I finally found some and came to share it with you.
I don’t know how many of you picked up on the hint in my title what this post would be about. If not, it’s about #GirlBoss; this has been on my reading list for a while now, but last week Netflix premiered a show.
We all know I had to binge watch; however, I’ll still be reading the book *it’s currently on its way*. Continue reading “Motivation Monday #7 // “Adulthood is Where Dreams go to Die””
