My fellow journeyers...today officially makes 52 days until my book is officially released and I couldn't be more excited. From what started as a mere thought has now turned into less than two months from all of us getting the physical copies in our hands. The entire writing process was a ball of emotions, because…

Oh, life! Good old life! One thing I would bet the millions I don't have (yet), is that life never ceases to amaze me with its twists and turns. It is something that took me almost 30 years to truly accept: the simple fact that all things truly don't go the way you want them…

This past June, I decided on a whim to go on a cruise, all on my lonesome. I didn't have any summer plans set in stone and realized that I needed to get out of the country. To maximize the amount of places I could see, I decided to search for a cruise. Now, to be very honest, I've never been…

What a journey life has taken me since I've last posted on here! Life, as it always does, dealt me with some of the highest and lowest of times, in the span of a few months, but one thing I always am is grateful. Grateful for everything I go through, because I know for a…
