To The Love of My Life

1 year ago today I went through the toughest experience in my life that would change things forever. I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl! Not knowing if I was going to make it after, God not only blessed me with another day but another year!

I thank you for choosing me Zuri. You changed my life for the better, now I can not imagine life without you. Mommy will continue to show you a better life. To show you that you can do anything you aspire to do. There is no limit to your dreams And no dream is too big. I will support you, love you and care for you always. I will teach you how to love all people starting with yourself. I will walk side by side with you, helping you up when you fall and holding you during your most toughest times. Zuri baby, you are my world. It’s you that keeps me going when I feel like I want to give up. There is no love greater than the love I have for you baby. Happy 1 year birthday my Princess!

Day 2: Self Love

Ok! Day 2 was quite the interesting one. I woke up at about 4:30 AM feeling a little sluggish. I decided at about 5:30 AM to go out for a walk, get some fresh air. Feeling the ground, the crisp air and listening to the city move liberated me. Feeling great, I came back in and meditated. I was able to practice stillness of the physical and mental for 15 minutes!!! If you know how hard meditating can be then you can feel my excitement!

After work, I thought of going to yoga however the physical was not up for it. I then listened to my horoscope which inspired me to make a video! I spent 1 hour making the video and 2 hours trying to upload. It still has not yet uploaded to any sites unfortunately, but I’m still excited I had the courage to do it!! I will not let the force stop me!! Stay tuned for that video and I’ll be back tomorrow. Good night lovelies!

Day 1: Self Love

Happy New Year Everyone!!! I’m sending many blessings for the year ahead. As the night comes to an end, what will you do for self care tonight??

Once baby went down for bed, I ran a nice hot bubble bath with some epsom salt and essential oils. Used natural lighting by burning candles. Lit an incense for a nice woodsy smell while I soaked and listened to an audio book called “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. I feel relaxed, present and tired. Good night to you all! I will be back with something new tomorrow!

New Begninngs!

What are you leaving behind come 2019? What are some things you are choosing to do different?

Well! Let me share mines. I am going to start the year 2019 off with a 30 day self love journey! That’s right! I am making the first 30 days all about me, well and my daughter of course, but she is apart of me! You may wonder why only 30 days?? Well, if I can challenge myself for 30 days and conquer, it then becomes a lifestyle!!

I am challenging myself to put me first, to love myself, and to embark on any and everything that brings me joy! Everyday will be different from the last. I will be enjoying so many things from all different backgrounds, from food to health, religion, adventure, work outs, to dates (with myself!) and more! The biggest part and challenge of my journey is sharing it with you all!! Get ready because I am choosing to be fully transparent, open, honest and free. I am letting go of all that 2018 fear and diving into 2019 with courage! So I’m hoping this brings out my best self and who knows maybe it will inspire someone else to let their best self shine!
