ITS 2018! I feel like after the 2017 I have had, the beginning of a new year is the best way to start fresh and move forward in the most positive way possible. I believe that only good things can come from this year and that I have to dedicate it to working on myself and my career. Positive thinking is key to growth and success moving forward. I have to continue to work on that as the year goes by.
I will continue to occasionally write on this blog as it has been my baby since 2012, but I don’t know what other content to focus on in the new year. I will continue to think about this.
Anyways, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL. Best wishes for 2018! You can do anything you set your mind to.
To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
I decided to visit 401 Richmond in Toronto a few weeks ago and stumbled upon multiple lush green plants. Looking at healthy plants makes me happy and calm. It reminds me to look for the beauty in all things.
Merry Christmas to you all that celebrate and if you don’t, then Happy Monday to you too!
I know that this is one day late, but I just wanted to acknowledge those of you that have been following and reading my blog since 2012! Its exciting to know that I have been using this blog for almost 6 years now and I am so excited to still have all of you reading along with me! I know that I don’t get around to blogging as much as I used to but 2018 is a year in which I hope to start again! Thanks for your continued support!
I was watching HBO’s show, Insecure, which features the channels first all black cast. The show is like the black millennials Sex and the City, which has made it interesting and provided perspective. On the Last episode of season two, Frank Ocean’s single, Biking, was played as the final events played out. It was the perfect song for the end of the season and it is also one of the best Frank Ocean songs I have heard in a long time (mind the fact that I did not listen to Blonde, his latest release). I have attached the track. Give it a listen and check out HBO Insecure while you’re at it.

On August 29, I had the experience of a lifetime. I got to go to my first large venue concert at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, ON and listen to one of my favourite musicians perform live. On one of his later stops on the Search for Everything tour, John Mayer gave a beautiful performance. What I enjoyed the most was that he focused mostly on his ability to play the guitar more than the vocals. I became more mesmerized with every guitar solo I heard him play. I got to hear some of my old favourites like Daughters, Waiting on a World to change and Gravity, but I was also exposed to a couple of new songs I enjoyed such as: Never on the day you leave, and Emoji of a Wave. I hope that you’ll give some of my videos a listen And I hope that whether you like him or not, John’s music can resonate with you in some way.
Some days, when things are going totally not your way, we have the tendency to focus on the negative and have it continue to dictate our moods and feelings. This is not productive and will not help us to feel better in any way.
What I try to do, especially when I’m down and feeling my worst, I try to utter my thanks by finding one thing I’m thankful for each morning. This helps to ground me and remind me that their are great things in my life that shine through the bad at all times. We need to realize that there is good in all bad even when we can’t see it.
Try to find one thing you are thankful for right now. It will improve your mood even if just the tiniest bit.
I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS SONG! I don’t really listen to the radio, so I just recently heard this song of course. As soon as I heard it for the first time a few weeks ago, I knew that it was going to be a song that was stuck in my head for weeks. I listen to this song at least once a day everyday and it is my go to pick me up song. It cheers me right up! If you haven’t heard I Feel It Coming by The Weeknd & Daft Punk yet, I suggest you listen to it as soon as possible. You will definitely feel like getting up and dancing!
