UNBREAKABLE

I am thrilled to announce the release of my second book, unbreakable! After spending a month in Thailand, living on Muay Thai camp, poetry came to me when I returned to Africa. During the time that I was writing the poetry, I was reflecting on life, relationship, and changes that had led up to me being - Read More -

When I think of gratitude, I’m reminded of this story: There was once a man with one eye who was quite depressed about having only one eye. As he walked down the road, lamenting about his lot in life, he ran across the man with no eyes.¬† The man with one eye was filled with - Read More -

THE JOURNEY TO MY FIRST BOOK

When I started this blog in February 2013, I felt called to write a book but I didn’t know where to start. I did not want to be a writer who did not write, so I used the blog as a way of becoming comfortable getting my writing out into the world. With my background - Read More -

ONE MORE THING

When traveling, I often feel some anxiety before the flight. There’s packing, being on time for the car service, arriving at the airport with enough time to check in and go through security to be on time for the flight (and early enough to get bin space!).

INCREDIBLY THANKFUL

Life has been busy. Working on various projects, traveling, finalizing my first book (more to come on this! :), and striving to make time for friends and family has taken a toll.

I LOVE MY MOM!

The great thing about having your own website/blog is that you can write whatever you want! haha Though I often make more general posts, today I feel like being specific. My mother is love and light bottled up. She’s beautiful, brilliant, compassionate, caring, and beyond supportive! This morning, we laughed about one of my first - Read More -

GIVING THANKS

Sometimes I feel that I’m on the road more than I am at home! It is through these travels that I have been fortunate to make new friends and gain new perspectives. It has been my practice to stay in hotels I enjoy (with people I click with instantly), particularly in cities I visit often. - Read More -

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

As I near the final stages of recovery from the flu, I have become a little reflective. It is pretty clear that I had not been getting enough sleep in the midst of traveling and committing to too many things. I set myself up perfectly for being sick. And the flu had an astounding way - Read More -
