I’ve had the privilege to travel to many different places since that first cruise both domestically and internationally. I actually received a prophetic word about it. A woman who I esteem said she saw me on airplanes. I was skeptical because at the time, I was knee-deep in grief and did not see myself willy-nilly vacationing. But that was exactly what happened and ended up being a vital part of my healing.
As soon as I heard the Hawaiian people’s native calls echoing in the atmosphere, chills caressed my arms and my mind flashed back to a time where I didn’t even exist when African tribal groups released a similar sound. I knew in that moment, we were all the same.

Last week I found myself doing things I’ve never done before. Things I’ve dreamed… Continue reading FuN in tHe sUN
So this morning I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I looked under my bed, dug out the box decorated in Paris, France symbols, and took out my passport. The passport I purchased nearly 4 years ago that has been collecting dust under my bed. And I smiled. Because now I will… Continue reading Dusting Off The Passport
The holidays are here! And I’ve found myself in a new place, doing new things, enjoying the newness of life. I decided to spend some time in Florida with friends and do something I hardly ever do, take a VACATION. This was my reward for finishing up my MBA this year and I’m so grateful… Continue reading The Good Life
