Finding & Fulfilling Our Purpose
Don’t Block Your Blessings
No matter how much I tried to be by myself and find my inner-peace in solitude, my life purpose was always knocking on my door. Opportunities will fall in your lap if you let them. You can only block your blessings by doubting yourself or being fearful. Know everything is happening for a reason. #purpose #lifepurpose #path

Finding & Fulfilling Our Purpose
Trust Your Path
I was with a friend yesterday and she told me to close my eyes and imagine the happiest life I’d like to live. I answered, “living in Hawaii in an open space with my own yoga studio and holistic cafe, with nine children”. That makes my heart radiate. Whatever makes your heart pump - that’s your life purpose. Trust your path, even if there are obstacles in place. #purpose #lifepurpose #path

We Are Natural Beings, So Why Not Be?
A lot of my meditations are nature driven. I have my yoga class envision their roots under their being, and the stem moving up through the solar plexes as it moves up to the heart, creating a bud and spreading its petals. It’s beautiful how we resonate with nature. #harmony #balance #bepresent

Sunflowers and Self-Love
You have a sunflower within. They’re not only beautiful, the adjust themselves towards the sun. It’s both reactive and beautiful to know a sunflower loves itself so much it’ll find its own nourishment and happiness. We need to find our own light. #happiness #selflove

Loving Yourself
I’m Surrendering and Accepting Myself
My self-love journey is currently centered around surrendering. I’m surrendering to my thoughts, my past and to what I think my future will be. I’m also on a journey of overall self-acceptance. I looked in the mirror the other day saying, “you need to see who this person is and love her”. Your soul power is your fuel. #selflove #lovingyourself #selfimprovement

Self-Love Is Soul Power: Part 1
My self-love journey comes in and out. I’ve always been in touch with my light, but people often saw it before I saw it myself. Self-love is soul power. James Brown knew it. #selflove #lovingyourself

My Father Surpassed Society’s Expectations of Masculinity
It was through creativity that my father surpassed that masculinity role that men play in life. He was a firm believer in passing that down to people. He passed down the idea of being your best self to young men. He had a program that sent inner-city children to play lacrosse in prep school, allowing them to learn essential lessons through sports. #leadership #value #voice #empowerment #sports #lessons #students #mentor

Finding & Defining Love
Reach Within First
My breakup taught me that I needed to love myself more. I was seeking love from someone else and putting them on a pedestal that they were bound to fall from, which is unfair to the other person. I learned to reach within first. #love #findinglove #selflove

Self-Love Is Soul Power: Part 2
That self-love soul power is your fuel. Imagine a soul power gas station. That fuel will bring you the happiness, joy and self-love that you need. Ultimately, who will pump that fuel into you? I’m on the journey to pumping that fuel myself. #selflove #lovingyourself #inthemoment #selfimprovement #soulpower

In New Orleans, I Felt Free
New Orleans changed my life. I was able to step out of the New York grind and pace. In New Orleans you can feel the genuine exchange of “how are you, good morning”. New Orleans changed my life in that self-love journey because it allowed me to feel free and fluid. #harmony #balance #peace #bepresent #selflove

My Father’s Aura
My father’s funeral was huge. I remember looking around and thinking, “all these people came to pay respect”. He had the biggest heart and aura that attracted you to him. He had a way to naturally seduce people into being their best self. #purpose #lifepurpose #familyloss

Life Didn’t Come With a Handbook
I moved to New Orleans last year and I remember seeing my cousin and asking him, "What’s one thing my dad taught you before he passed?" His answer was, “No fear." We don’t know what will happen in life. Because my dad was a firm believer in creating his own reality, he succeeded in life. #purpose #lifepurpose #bepresent #fear

The Creativity Within
My grandmother trained my father from a young age to tap into his creativity. That leads my entire family; we’re very artistic. All humans have the natural ability to find creativity within. #purpose #lifepurpose #creativity

On Death: Fear & Other Feelings
I Wouldn’t Be Me If I Hadn’t Gone Through Loss
I've found that being able to see death as a natural process has healed me. I see the importance of my father's death. I wouldn't be the woman I am now without having gone through that. #death #familyloss

On Death: Fear & Other Feelings
I'm Getting Closer to Not Fearing Death
You can transform grief into understanding the many layers of life. I now see death as a natural process and as a necessity of life. When something falls, another thing rises. It's almost like a fertilizer of life. I'm getting closer to not fearing death. That allows you to truly live. #death #fearofdeath #familyloss

On Death: Fear & Other Feelings
Grief is a Long-Term Experience
In the past, I thought that death was the worst thing ever. I was only 12 when my father passed away. Before that, my grandmother, who was very influential in my life and how I view music, passed away. I lost two very important people to me. I didn't grieve about my father’s passing until sophomore year of college. Grief is a long-term experience. #death #fearofdeath #loss #grief #grieving #family

Loneliness Is Not Being In the Present
Loneliness is a trip, and everyone has their journey with it. How is it that you feel lonely in a crowded room? So many people belittle themselves and don't just be in the present moment. Living in the present is so important to getting out of feeling lonely. #loneliness #aloneness #bepresent

Being Alone & Feeling Alone
Solitude Is Self-Love
Another word synonymous with loneliness is solitude. People often think being in solitude means being lonely, but ultimately, solitude is self-love. Being in solitude is being comfortable with yourself. On the other hand, it can be good to feel lonely because you'll seek ways to get out of it. You begin seeking happiness and ways to rise. #loneliness #aloneness #selflove #solitude

Being Alone & Feeling Alone
The Feeling of Emptiness Within
My father passed away when I was 12 and I left to a boarding school two months after. Boarding school was a new family I had to adjust to, and I didn't feel like anyone truly understood my experience. I didn't start grieving his death until college, so between age 12 to 21 I felt lonely within myself. As a people person, I've always been surrounded by others, but I had a feeling of emptiness within. #loneliness

The Lizard Pose
In yoga, the lizard pose is one of my favorite poses. We hold so much emotion in our hips, which is there to support so much of what we do. It’s important to stretch and create that space so your mind knows you’re connected to different areas of your body. Once you connect that, the world is yours.

The Mind Body Connection
Everything resonates with me physically. Once I bring myself in with my breath, everything falls into place. My mind is calm and my body relaxes. I harmonize my mind and body. Yoga can transform your day or week - it allows you to sit with yourself. #harmony #balance #peace

Mantras Help You Control Your Focus
I've been into mantras lately. We often feel like the world is controlling us. Ultimately, mantras are in your control; you control what you're telling your mind to focus on and what to believe. I've been telling myself lately, "I will harmonize my thoughts". Once I say that, I feel more at peace. #harmony #balance #peace #meditation

Our Breath Is Our Vibration
I believe the power in breathing. Everything is a rhythm, and we live in a world full of vibrations. Our breath is our vibration, and when we can hone into that, we can control our reality and get back to our center. #harmony #balance #bepresent

Stepping Out of the Grind Tunnel
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle is a transformational book. I recommend it to anyone who would like to evolve. We're trained to be in a tunnel vision of the grind, career and education-based knowledge. It's harder for us to step out of that tunnel and be in the now. #harmony #balance #inthemoment #bepresent #book

Speak, It's Okay to Express Yourself
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson was an amazing read. It's about expression and being able to feel free through self-expression and communication. While I was reading it, I was going through a lot of fear-based communication. From reading that book, I learned that it's okay to express yourself genuinely, and people will either accept it or not. #happiness #selflove #books

This Book Allowed Me to Find My Inner Beauty
I remember my mom gifting me The Skin I'm In by Sharon G. Flake when I was younger. It's about colorism, and I believe my elders wanted to guide me so I can reshape my identity in a positive light. I remember growing up feeling ostracized, and I never understood why. That book allowed me to find my beauty within. #happiness #selflove #books

Happiness Is Just Being
I've struggled with finding happiness for most of my life. I used to believe that you can achieve for happiness, but ultimately I learned it's a base emotion. It's a root of love. Having anxiety and doubt about happiness is stepping out of that emotion, instead of just being. #happiness #joy #essence
