Hey guys! I decided to do something different this time around… I felt it would be good to share some of the ways I stay motivated daily. It’s easy for one to assume that we as bloggers/content-creators are constantly motivated and productive and we got this personal-development thing figured out. The truth is that we don’t know it all, well I am still learning. As much as I am a very driven and determined individual with a strong will-power, I still have my ‘tough days’ like anyone else despite the fact that I am constantly bringing motivational content to you… View Post

Hello everyone! We will be looking at one of the stumbling blocks that hinder so many young people and that is…people’s opinions!  I’ve wanted to write this post for a week now but I was unsure of how to put it all together in a concise and polite manner. But, I was reading Brown Girl Bloggers founded by Candice VanWye (a must-read blog for minority women) and I came across the post “4 reasons to do that thing you’re scared to do.” The first few paragraphs below moved me and led me to write this post. “In July of 2013… View Post

Last year, I wrote a post on ‘What to do with haters on your success journey?” I feel it’s an important post to refresh on again, this time around with a different angle. One thing I want you all to know is that people will be people, not everyone will like you, not everyone would be nice to you and it’s still something I’m getting used to and something I’ve gradually overcome-people-pleasing. The reality of the world is that we are all in a rat-race, a very selfish one; everybody is concerned about themselves, what can benefit them and what… View Post

One lesson I’m learning each day is to love me. As cliché as this may sound, it’s something I’ve made a decision to do. It is also something a lot of young people struggle with- self-love. We are always willing to look at our negative parts- what we can’t do, the mistakes we’ve made, the failures we’ve caused but not quick to highlight our successes, to embrace our uniqueness, to appreciate our ‘differences,’ it could be in terms of race, background, experiences…they are all part of our story.

“Comparison makes you feel superior or inferior. Neither serves a useful purpose.”  – Jane Travis ‘Why can’t I be like her?” “Why can’t I be skinny like she is?” These questions do sound familiar to many of us. At point in our life, we have all played the comparison game. What a game! It brings self-doubt, low self-esteem, strips away your confidence, leaves your jealous and filled with hate, makes you ungrateful. So much negativity attached to playing this game and yet quite a number of us still take part. I felt this topic was an important one to address… View Post
