It’s okay to fail. These are four little words I have to remind myself of daily. I’m the first to admit that I am afraid to fail. I’m afraid that all my hard work now isn’t going to result in anything. I’m afraid that I sometimes make decisions that will hinder my plans for the future. The thing is that fear of failing shouldn’t stop us from living. It shouldn’t stop us from doing that one or multiple things we are passionate about. However, fear is paralyzing. It makes us settle for what we think is best or settle for what we think we deserve. View Post
Hey guys, so last week I found out from Angela Lanter’s Snapchat that March is National Nutrition Month, so this week I’m sharing my Roasted Salmon recipe. Roasted salmon is one of my all time favorite recipes to prepare and eat. I just love everything about it. With Spring approaching, (YAY to the 60°weather this week in the New York area) I really want to commit to eating healthier options for the well-being of my body because I have a summer wedding coming up, I want to look and feel great. Check out the roasted salmon recipe below and, if you love Salmon as much as I do I would love to hear your how you prepare it. I’m always on the hunt for new ways to cook Salmon. Enjoy xx ♥ View Post
The best thing we can do for ourselves is to appreciate who we are. Love means nothing unless we can love ourselves first. Loving ourselves should be engraved in our being. Each day should be like a new opportunity to better ourselves. A new opportunity to uplift ourselves and the people around us. It’s okay to be a little selfish though. Take a little extra time in your day to do “me” stuff. Don’t get to wrapped up in what could have been instead focus on what you can do from this point on. Today my lovely readers, I want to share with you all a little pick me up. A little something you can take with you after you have read today’s post. Enjoy “7 Things You Should Be Saying To Yourself Everyday.”
Have you ever had those moments when you realize how fortunate you are to have the simple things in life. This morning as I stood in my tub taking a warm shower I started thinking about how fortunate and lucky I am to be able to have clean, warm water everyday to shower with. It’s so crazy how the little things spark those little moments of gratitude and realizations in your life. A lot of times I go through my day not even thinking about the things I have and how fortunate I am. This past week really made me think about how much I take for granted. Like three years ago I didn’t have a car so I had to either take the bus or a cab to work now I have my own car and I’m able to get from point A and B without having to worry about missing the bus or spending a lot of money on cab fare. Like sometimes I sit in my car while driving through New York and I start having these mini moments of excitement because I have my license after doubting myself in the past after I failed my test twice. I also have mini moments of excitements when I jump into bed and my bed is warm, fluffy and I am comfortable. I also have those moments when I’m just so grateful that my mom and dad are still alive and in my life. I am the first to admit that sometimes I tend to not care about or put much thought into issues when they don’t directly affect me but this past week when I heard about the water issue in Flint my heart broke for the residents in that community. It’s just so sad that today in 2016 in the United States communities have to deal with unsafe and unhealthy water conditions. It’s just so unfair.

What are some of the little things in your life that you are thankful for?
This year is all about growth for me. It’s about taking chances and not worrying about failure. It’s about being inspired and staying committed to the goals I set for myself. It’s about finding and doing things to constantly keep me motivated and inspired. In the past year, I struggled a lot with finding things to inspire me but as I look back the only one to blame is myself. I stifled my own creativity and inspiration. I didn’t live the life I am constantly envisioning for myself. I let my lack of confidence and low self-esteem get the better of me. I literally failed myself. I can honestly only laugh about it because it’s all in the past and I’m leaving that girl in 2015. So today, I just wanted to share with you guys 4 ways to stay inspired and motivated.
