In the past six months, I have traveled through as many time zones. I started with a lovely trip to Lisbon to visit friends and meet Mooji, and from there, I went on to visit New Jersey, NYC, LA, Austin, and Houston before returning back to Africa. During that whirlwind of a trip, I was - Read More -

It’s not what it sounds like…it’s what it is. When I think back to life in Corporate America, I remember all of the times people discuss long hours spent working and early morning calls. Another person would chime in about even longer hours. Though the spirit was often one of complaint, it became a bit - Read More -

Most of the time it feels like I have a million things to do. I’m very good at adding projects into my life haha However, I find that I am not able to make progress on any of them unless I focus my attention on one task at at time. As I said to a friend - Read More -

While reflecting on the trip on the (long) journey home, I was reminded of three things: 1. You cannot get moments back, no matter how special. 2. When you - Read More -

As for myself, I am still among those who are influenced by the opinions of others, like the wind - Read More -

Today, concepts of time, energy, prioritization, and excuses were on my mind. In the simplest terms, I believe that you tend to do what you prioritize and make excuses for everything else you don’t do. However, I also think that what you prioritize may not be in alignment with what you truly value. So I want to ask this - Read More -

This week, I had the great fortune of being able to visit with my uncle in Portland! I had not seen him for many years, though it didn’t feel it had been that long ago. I guess it is no coincidence that familiar is derived from family. Being around my uncle felt so familiar. He reminded me of my - Read More -

In full disclosure, I am not an expert at organization. I do not have an advanced filing or labeling system. I can still function in a bit of chaos. In fact, recently, my sister reminded me of of a time (when we were younger) when my room was filled with piles. I had piles of - Read More -

I have been blessed in my life not only with wonderful family and parents, but also absolutely amazing extended family. This evening I had the pleasure of speaking with my second mother/Auntie, who I love dearly!, and we had a beautiful spiritually based conversation. She taught me about the five controls that we all have - Read More -
