When the Ego Divides Your Character

Read More

Honesty, a character trait that each and every one of us has, yet the value placed on it varies on an individual basis. There are people in this world who will lie, cheat and steal as if it is second nature, these people lack virtues. A deficit of integrity and the inability to be whole, lacking solidarity and unification through life’s interactions. Personally, I believe that a word is bond….

Everyone Has Their Own Journey

Read More

As I continue this journey we call life, I can’t help but to stop and look back at my path and evaluate the moments that have lead me to where I am today. I was graced by God to have a child at a young age of 24. I’ll be honest, it was difficult because I didn’t have any friends that I could relate to with the same responsibilities. After my two-year…

Ambivalent Relationships Are Not Worthy of Your Time

Read More

Recently a friend of mine had sent me a video talking about ambivalent relationships and it got me thinking about all of my past relationships, not just with significant others but also with friends. Ambivalence is the experience of having an attitude towards someone or something that contains both positive and negative components. It’s that one friend you have to work extra hard on to maintain that friendship, or that…

Do Childhood Paradigms Dictate Your Future?

Read More

At what point in our lives do we let childhood paradigms dictate the choices we make to follow our dreams? I am a firm believer in the common phrase that God does not give a person an idea/dream if he doesn’t think he/she can make it happen. Many of us have shifted away from our chance to living out our passions and desires, life’s full potential, due to past paradigms…

Does Age Really Matter?

Read More

When it comes down to relationships, what role does age really play a part? Well, I have to conclude from my own personal experience, that age does matter. My last relationship was with a man 16 years my senior, and needless to say, it didn’t work out. I think when you decide to date someone outside the 10 year age gap the relationship is vulnerable to generational differences. At most times,…

Living Life Without Overthinking It

Read More

Too often I witness friends over-analyzing situations, and sometimes I am guilty of it too, but I try to be aware of my thoughts and not let my mind take over. In general, our minds have a negative connotation when reflecting on one’s self-position. We allow our minds to wander into “what could be” scenarios that prevent us from really living life, and many of times, creating your own fear…

Parenting Demands and Daily Shortcuts

Read More

I know there are many of you who can relate to lack of time. I happen to be a working mother, which means the pressure is on to face all types of demands: getting yourself ready and your kid to leave for work and school on time, packing lunchboxes, helping with homework, doing projects (let’s face it, until a certain age, it’s the parents doing them), plus all the other…

Relationships and Adult Breakups

Read More

Relationships are hard and adult breakups are even worse, but there is nothing more therapeutic than music to help you get through a breakup. We all find that one song that resonates with us. Mine happens to be “Brand New Me” by Alicia Keys. I’ve had it downloaded forever, but never found it to be very relatable until I heard it today on my shuffle playlist. I recently went through…

A Detox Bath with Instant Gratification

Read More

(Photo: Country Living Magazine) In my search for a healthier way of being, I’ve come to discover that I’ve been obsessing over different detox methods. I’ve tried a few, but none compare to the Apple Cider Vinegar bath. I instantly saw results after just one soak. I literally tried it for the first time Sunday night, and needless to say, I went and stocked up on A LOT of Apple…
