The year is 2021. I am living my thirty-third year on this planet. And it is the start of a year following the oh-so-dreadful 2020. Does anything seem different yet? January kicked off my month-long decluttering challenge. After watching the Minimalist documentary on Netflix (not sponsored), I decided I wanted less—not more. Well, more of… Continue reading Clear the Clutter: 2021 Edition
A Voice Called Doubt
There are few times in my life when I have taken the plunge on big decisions. More often, caution—and resistance to change—take the driver’s seat. Maybe at the root of it all is a little voice called doubt. Sometimes we doubt when life brings us to a fork in the road. Is one choice better… Continue reading A Voice Called Doubt
Run Your (Spiritual) Race
Earlier this year I ran my second marathon. If you are wondering how far that is, just picture yourself taking the scenic route from Coral Gables to Homestead. It is a little over 26 miles. This wonderful adventure I signed up for took place in Walt Disney World, where every mile is promised to be… Continue reading Run Your (Spiritual) Race
Just the Beginning
How many times have you wrestled with your purpose? Sometimes I wonder if we spend more time questioning our purpose, rather than taking action. Am I alone here? Every now and then I start to doubt where I’m at in life. This year I am turning 30 at the end of December, and boy have… Continue reading Just the Beginning
14 Days Off Vital Proteins
It’s not often that you find a product and see results overnight. So I wanted to give Vital Proteins a try for a couple months before I made up my mind about it. My first time hearing about Vital Proteins was on Instagram through Shut the Kale Up. She shares amazing recipes using real food… Continue reading 14 Days Off Vital Proteins
Was it Worth It?
A moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips. We’ve heard the phrase before. Especially when our gym partner slaps a donut from our hand. I’m not here to talk about diets, though. What I am more interested in is if we consider this reality in our daily lives. The Python Was… Continue reading Was it Worth It?
I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me
Wherever you find yourself reading this—maybe you are holding a hot dog under the fireworks—I wonder if you worry about your next meal. Not just a food picture worthy of the gram… I am asking if you ever wonder what you would do if you had to beg for food? The Encounter This Sunday I… Continue reading I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me
When an Organized Space Clears the Mind
Growing up my cousins would pick on me by rearranging things in my room. Let me explain. I used to keep my collection of Precious Moments in my room on the dresser, nightstands, and on shelves. They were all arranged in a particular way, and so, my cousins—knowing how much it bothered me—would come into… Continue reading When an Organized Space Clears the Mind
Do You Really YOLO?
The motto is so real, but is it so worth it? Yes, we only live once. But YOLO can mean one of two things: you only live once, so do something you have never done before (that might be idiotic or embarrassing); or it can mean you only live once, so make mindful choices that… Continue reading Do You Really YOLO?
Stirred But Never Changed
We are all about the selfie stick. Instagram paints the picture we want people to see. And Facebook tells them how to feel about us. It is all on the surface. But, what’s actually happening underneath it all? I started 2017 reflecting on many different areas of my life like relationships, hobbies, and priorities. It… Continue reading Stirred But Never Changed
