This month marks two years since my biological father passed. I’ve been caught off guard with how I miss him at times. For those new to sharing my journey with me, my father took my mother’s life with a gun when I was 5. He was in such rage, he blacked out and doesn’t remember…

Try to detach from the way you thought your life would happen. Everyone’s path and journey is different. This is hard for me to share, as I never talk abut my love life, but one of my biggest challenges (for years now) has been accepting that my desire to have a romantic life partner and…

I’ve been over analyzing and dissecting my life and myself as of late, after something didn’t work out the way I had hoped. Being in Tulum, amidst nature’s simplicity, and with genuine friends, has allowed me to get grounded, out of my head, and really understand that what’s meant to be will be and completely…

It takes conscious effort to make something great, and then keep it great over time…It can be easy to give up when something isn’t going the way you think it should, when you make a mistake, or a mountain gets in the way. But it’s how you face the challenges that make something great. What…

”Ruin is the way to transformation.” I remember losing my job, losing my adoptive family, my biological father getting out of prison, all at the same time – and I was fully alone. I had an emotional breakdown and was depressed and anxious for a loooong time. I had to wait a month for my…

We can always choose how we respond to hardship, challenge, and adversity. In times like this, we get an opportunity to choose to practice and strengthen our resiliency, self-improve, become more aware, stay disciplined in perseverance, help others, and appreciate the small things. We can choose to give up, or we can choose to grow…

Our health is so important, yet we take it for granted until it’s compromised. The same way we take breathing for granted since it’s something we do instinctively. I caught a really bad flu this past week, and not that a reminder is needed, but it’s nice to have. In case you need one…take care…

Stairs are symbolic to life. We take steps forward as growth and we take steps backward as lessons learned. Each step offers an experience, so whether it’s forward or backward, the journey itself will teach you.

My 30’s have been some of the toughest years of my life. Certain events that occurred triggered deep wounds from my adolescent years all over again. Abandonment, depression, anxiety, lack of self worth, feeling unworthy of unconditional love. And while I know the saying you should always love yourself unconditionally, ironically, it’s also one of…

What we eat is so important for our overall health. But, so too, is how we eat. Mindful Eating – something I’ve been practicing as of late. Connect with whomever you’re sharing a meal with (even if it’s just you)…slow down, practice gratitude for the connection of your food…from where it came from to the…
