Vision Board

Posted on

Tyrese Gibson posted a video entitled Visionary a while ago and it resonated with me. He spoke of having visions that only a select few have the ability to see. He spoke of the genius of those visions and he spoke of success and achievements of those visions. He spoke of how rare it was to have visions (clear view of a goal from inspection to execution to success of the goal). He enlightened me.

Today I came up with the idea of creating a vision board. I’m not new to the vision board concept but I was used to mentally creating visions at night before I went to bed. I wanted these visions to penetrate my subconscious so it would become second nature. Recently, I’ve been unable to have a clear vision of my plans and goals so I decided to create a visual. It’s a combination of words, images and quotes that resonated with me. I pulled them magazine. I made sure that there we’re not superficial images and unattainable views. Prior to creating the board I wrote down a few words that I wanted to see show up on the board so I wouldn’t be strayed from my overall goal.

Underneath the board I’ll be writing down my short term and long term goals. I want to make sure I create a shift in my life – that I’m impacting myself in the most positive way.

I’m thoroughly excited to start a new journey! Join me!


Island Talk Pilot

Posted on Updated on

I shot a pilot for an upcoming television talk show (hopefully…fingers crossed). and I learned a lot! I wanted to share with you  some photos from that day. Shout out to my lovely co-host, Joann Nichols!

I’m usually the one to keep things under wraps and on the hush until it’s time to reveal, but I always remember what a Church member told me, “What’s for you, is for you, if God has allowed it.”

The Single Woman’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge!: Day 3

3)      Describe a moment or a day when being single was really awesome

Last year I went back home to St. Vincent and the Grenadines for a couples weeks. I hadn’t traveled for about 2 years because I was in school. I traveled on my own with no cares in the world…one of the best experiences and best trips thus far in my life. I was free, I felt free. I was happy, I was full of joy. I couldn’t wait to see my family and friends and relax and listen to the sounds of my beautiful island. I didn’t check in with anyone, I answered to myself. I met new people, formed new relationships and was feeling unstoppable. Things in my life were aligning and I was completed centered. I experienced that with no man, no boyfriend, and no play thing. 

When I travel it represents my journey through my personal life. I learn more and grow much quicker. I made the mistake once of traveling to see a man. Let me just say this, I learned a lot and saw a lot! Traveling solo with no attachments enables me to grow and become stronger. When I find someone who gives me the room for that process to happen, then I know I’ve find the right one. Don’t get it confused, I’m not saying we’ll break up so I can travel and frolic! I’m saying if we can travel together and I have the room to explore my own personal journey while with him…that’s pretty freakin’ awesome. Then again, isn’t that how we create balance in relationships? Isn’t that how we create successful relationships?
