The Friday Five

People will naysay or try to warn you about how difficult it is to pursue opportunities. But above all, persevere and act with bold intentions. Don’t let others’ experiences define your journey. “It doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from. The ability to triumph begins with you. Always.” – Oprah _______________________________________________________ I hope you […]

Turning the PR Page

For the first time I had to seriously question if it was time for a change to my young professional career. During my trip to Chicago last month it was time to decide what was next after graduation. I had to ask myself do I want to go full-time at the PR agency where I […]

Daring Greatly

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who […]

Finding Roots – A Sweet Two Years

Today is the second anniversary of writing Finding Roots! When I started this blog, I didn’t know what to expect, or who would really read it. It turned into a vulnerable, beautiful process allowing me to be connect with others, find myself and be honest. Below are the top five posts of my blog that helped bring me […]

A Look Back: Naturally Made

Here is “A Look Back” at my past week through my weekly photo journal post. Embrace who you and enjoy what’s natural in this world! Namaste! Last weekend I went home to visit my family and catch up with friends. I hung out with grandmothers. A love living down the street from a Farmer’s Market […]

I Gave Up My Power

I sat in the office of my old supervisor working on a project she needed help with Tuesday. As we sat there, she suddenly asked, “Are you okay? You don’t seem like your happy self today?” I said, “Yeah, it’s just early in the day!” But then as I continued to work, I realized she […]

Whose Voice Is That??

Sometimes I put myself down. It’s something we all do! Sometimes we think we are fat, we are ugly or we are not worthy of something. A lack of yoga and success with dating definitely leaves me feeling down at times. A few weeks ago I watched Oprah’s Lifeclass and life coach Cheryl Richardson addressed […]

Real Talk

This past weekend I realized some inner truths through conversations with friends and being honest with myself. I basically “got real” and so did some of my friends. Often we end up lying to ourselves or not disclosing the truth to someone else, when we should. We need to get real about our feelings and […]

You Know How the Story Goes. . .

I knew I wanted my next post to be on friendship and yesterday, it came to me that I not only wanted to write about friendship but an unsung hero in my book. This weekend I looked at the PRIDE (LGBTQ) Student Union Facebook event for its general body meeting and I flashed back to my […]

I Snooze, I Lose

I didn’t expect to have a story related to dating so soon but it is crazy how timing works out. When we wait to grasp something we want until later, many times we lose our chance. Friday night I was proactive but it was a little too late. Last semester I developed a crush on […]
