Let’s Talk // I Strive for BADASSERY

Are ya’ll tired of hearing me speak about the Year of Yes yet? I hope not!
So, what is BADASSERY and why am I striving for it?

All compliments to Shonda Rhimes, Badassery is:

  1. (noun) the practice of knowing one’s own accomplishments and gifts, accepting one’s own accomplishments and gifts and celebrating one’s own accomplishments and gifts; 2. (noun) the practice of living life with swagger : SWAGGER (noun or verb) a state of being that involves loving oneself, waking up “like this” and not giving a crap what anyone else thinks about you. Term first coined by William Shakespeare.

Now that we got that lovely description out the way, why should we strive for it?

It was at an award ceremony where Shonda realized how other young women including herself did not know how to celebrate their accomplishments while being honored. They did one of three things, hid their faces, laugh it off or try to get the person speaking to stop. Continue reading “Let’s Talk // I Strive for BADASSERY”

Today’s Girls, Tomorrow’s Leaders

Happy International Day of the Girl!!

This celebration started in 2012 as a way to showcase the needs and challenges of girls worldwide. There are currently 1.1 billion girls in the world. The day seeks to promote empowerment amongst girls and the fulfillment of their human rights.

The theme for this year is – EmPOWER girls: Before, during and after conflict.

Conflict occurs in many different forms to girls all over the world. From abuse (physically and mentally), sexual and physical violence, child marriage, exploitation to trafficking. When this happens girls are less likely to finish their education or have trouble finding their place in this world.

What’s your FUTURE lookin’ like?

Hey guys!!

It’s been a while huh? Well, I’m still here. Work been keeping me busy, and when I’m not doing that it’s a headache to do anything blog related. Finding inspiration to keep going gets difficult at times, but I try my best to continue this journey. Giving up is not an option.

So, let’s get into today’s post *which should also serve as an inspiration*:
What’s your future lookin’ like?

Vision Boardplanning

The point of a vision board is to illustrate visually what you’d like your life to be like in the future. That may include: family, career, travel and other life goals. Pictures may be taken from the internet, magazines and other illustrations you may have at home.

Motivation Monday #9 // Be a DOER, NOT a DREAMER

It’s Monday again, so that means more motivation for you guys + gals!

As you know I’m currently reading Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes and it’s keeping me inspired plus pushing me to share my inspiration. *It’s a darn good book!*
It started with “You never say yes to anything” and here we are now being urged to “Ditch the dream; be a DOER, not a DREAMER.”

Well Shonda, I’M A DREAMER……it’s all I’ve ever been
*maybe that’s why I often times feel stuck*

Let’s Talk: Finding your TRIBE

Hey guyss!!!

It’s Friday, so you know what that means….LET’S TALK!

Took me a while to come up with a topic then I tweeted about my difficulty, and two seconds later it came to me. Finding your tribe…..finding my tribe.

So what’s a TRIBE and WHY should you find one?

In the simplest of terms a TRIBE is a “distinctive and close-knit group.” It can range from your family to your close friends and even teammates/club members. However, more specifically to me a tribe is your support system – as the quote above says, they help you to be your BEST self. Continue reading “Let’s Talk: Finding your TRIBE”

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”
