Waris Dirie

So I'm watching Desert Flower and the story that is being told couldn't be any more amazing.

Yes, it is true. We ALL have a story. Yes, yes, yes, we do. From genital mutilation to forced marriage to maid, a model and then becoming an Activist, Waris Dirie always aimed to be something greater, to change her life first so that she could then help others.


No matter what the obstacles are that we face, we are strong. 

We are strong in spite of our imperfections, our weaknesses, our downfalls. 

Nothing can stop you from achieving greatness.

My sister sketched these designs on the canvas and then painted them. Lovely.





Life is About Discovering Who You Are!

We all have our days when we sit back and daydream about what we might be doing right now if we weren't doing what we are currently doing.

Did you follow that?

Sometimes our present situations cause us to ponder on the "what-ifs" in life. I don't believe in regrets. I believe that everything that happens in life is meant to happen exactly as it has happened to bring you to your defining moment. Sometimes that means that you have to crawl through the mud to finally use the strength that you never knew that you had. It might even mean that need to switch paths in the middle of you walking along your journey towards a goal that you thought you wanted.

Discover who you are! That's the purpose of life! Life isn't meant to be solved like an equation as if there's a certain formula to guarantee your success or happiness. Have fun in discovering who you are! Realize what you want and what you need to do in order to experience your ultimate success and happiness!

30 is awesome!

I'm 30 and awesome!

Time flies when you're having fun. Living life is an amazing experience. To be present in every moment and satiated by everything that gears me towards being a better person is a really great feeling.

Every day I achieve goals that I've set for myself. Enjoying every day is the #1 goal on my list. I just give a word of thanks for health, wealth, love, family and friends.

Be thankful. Be appreciative. Just be.
