Celebrating Success for 2017

As we get ready to enter the new year most of our efforts are on creating new goals and resolutions for 2018, but what about the ones we made for 2017? Matter of fact before we get into that since life doesn’t always go as planned, what about your surprise achievements this year?

Did your 2017 live up to the hype?

Did you achieve all that you wanted and more?

Most importantly,Β DID YOU STOP TO CELEBRATE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS?

As humans I find we’re quick to move on to the next thing/goal and not celebrate what we’ve achieved this in that moment. Now, I’m not talking about birthdays, anniversaries, graduations that type of thing where we actually stop and plan a whole celebration. No, I’m talking about the small stuff.

Let’s Talk // Being a HATER

As I enter another year of life and we prepare for a new year (2018) I took a step back and began to analyze my life. Is it going how I planned? Did I achieve my goals/dreams? Am I becoming the person I want to be? Am I happy with myself? etc etc. Then, it crossed my mind how throughout this year I was being called a hater for my views on certain topics. Whether it was how someone was dressed, what they liked, how they acted or what they chose to do with their life. I had to stop and ask myself, when did I become that person?

lets talk

How did I go from the person who cared about what other people thought of me to one who had negative comments about everything. I wouldn’t say I’m an internet troll *I keep it in the group chats*, but I’ve definitely been caught sipping on some haterade. At least that’s what it looks like to other people, but maybe my opinions just differ from everyone else? Continue reading “Let’s Talk // Being a HATER”

Let’s Talk: Social Media Crazy

Hey Guys!
Hope all is well.

As of late I’ve been hearing my friends say that I’m too “Social Media Crazy” and I get how that can be a bad thing. However, I think I have to disagree even though it made me stop and think for a little.

Social media crazy? That’s a bit extreme.

I know of all the hype around people who post lavish lifestyles on the web while they’re struggling in real life; or perhaps posting everything, thinking that if they don’t it would signify it didn’t happen.

However, for me that’s not the case. I simply LOVE taking pictures! Plus, what’s the point of capturing these moments if there’s no-one to share them with?
Hence,I really enjoy different apps for various reasons;

Instagram – for posting pictures and sharing memories with a wider audience

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.

Image result for find your 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”

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.

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”

Let’s Talk: 13 Reasons Why

Hey Guys! Hope everyone is well.

Over the last few weeks I have seen quotes/messages from people about 13 reasons Why on various social media platforms. At first I was confused, because I never heard of this show; only to realize it’s a Netflix series based on a book. Everyone was going on about it, even in my group chats that I finally decided to give it a try.

Ten minutes in I decided it wasn’t for me, I was bored and the interest just wasn’t there. However, conversation continued and I felt even more curious to understand what everyone was talking about so I gave it another try. I finally completed the season last week and I don’t think I have a general description/emotion about it.

 baby confused idk unsure good luck charlie GIF
