10 months loc’d, this is my journey …

When i decided to start my loc journey I never could have anticipated the confidence and freedom it would bring. I think at first I was mostly focused on just getting past the dreaded "ugly stage" where it's hard to say what's going on, on your head. Lol! I'm happy to say, the "ugly stage" …

Emancipate yourself so you may grow. 

I was raised in a large family. Mom, dad, four brothers and two sisters. I'm the second youngest, out of all my siblings, but the youngest girl. I've noticed that I sometimes struggle to maintain a balance between living for my family and living for myself. The norm for me has been to allow my family's …

Bali was beautiful and somewhat overrated.

As expected, Bali was beautiful. I had a few days off the first week of May, also known as golden week here in Korea, so I broke the bank back in February purchasing my plane ticket and accommodations. Flights from Korea, at that time, were much more expensive because of the holiday. I was in Bali …

Taking a trip doesn’t always have to involve a flight… Weekend in Seoul

This trip to Seoul couldn't have come at a better time. It's been about 4 months since my last trip, outside of Korea (see Hong Kong + Day 1 in Joburg), so visiting Seoul felt a little like I'd left Korea. Exactly what I needed. Sometimes all it takes is a change of scenery and …

My Fitness Journey

I remember watching the weight begin to increase when I started dating my boyfriend, at the time, so I guess you could call it, "happy weight" or "new relationship weight". When we met in September 2011, I weighed 208 pounds, at the most, but carried it well because of my height (5'9) and build. At …

Update …7 months abroad… I want more.

I wouldn't be staying true to myself if I didn't address my underlying need for more. Teaching has in fact been a rewarding career that is providing me fulfillment that I've never felt before.  That I've craved. But being that I've never been one to entertain complacency I still want more. The fulfillment I seek …

I love you unconditionally.

Being with him, for, numerically what could be seen as a brief time, taught me how to love myself, and others, unconditionally. He was the catalyst, and after our time together came the realization that I had been going about love (of myself and others) all wrong. Before him, there were always conditions attached to how I …

Okay.. now vibrate higher.

Despite advocating for self love and finding joy from within I must acknowledge that things are still going to evoke an emotion out of you sometimes. People are still going to hurt you, and make you cry. You will still get angry. You will still spew cuss words in your head, or maybe even out …

Cape Town + Robben Island – Final pics

What I liked the most about Cape Town was the African art, the Congolese live music, being by the water; as well as, the cool African people I met in Obz. What I disliked was the predominant European influences that had me really confused as to where I was sometimes. If I were to try …
