#BoutThatInstantReward – Curbing my Enthusiasm

Have you ever felt like your thought process had completely deviated over time? These past couple of years I have realized how impulsive I am about pretty much everything I like and consequently want; I have literally become obsessed with the most random (or not so random) *ish. It can be a book I haveContinue reading “#BoutThatInstantReward – Curbing my Enthusiasm”

#HaveYouClaimedYourQueendom?

Have you? If not, you should. Easier said than done, I know… I believe that the most effective way to change the world for the better is to finally acknowledge and empower women the way they should always have been. Last week I was told I had a Queen Complex. I was told I hadContinue reading “#HaveYouClaimedYourQueendom?”

#OnLoveAndLustAndEverythingInBetween (Part2)

I can honestly say that these past couple of weeks I fell in lust again. With myself. It is odd when you finally realize that your flaws are what make you special, that the imperfections add un je ne sais quoi to the craft: you mature into a butterfly. By discovering your Power as a womanContinue reading “#OnLoveAndLustAndEverythingInBetween (Part2)”

#WhenInDoubt

I think it is best to inquire before too hastily jumping to conclusions and in the process damage any type of friendships. In the past, I have too many times did or say things that have altered my confidence and hurt  the relationships with people who were very close to me. Lately, I have found aContinue reading “#WhenInDoubt”

#ShortUpdate

For the past month I have been sleep deprived and expectedly it has clouded my judgment and nudged my inner balance; and because of all the life changing events presently occurring it has been challenging. Although I am still experiencing anxiety, and I am extremely tired, these past couple of days I felt a deepContinue reading “#ShortUpdate”

#AboutTrustingMyGut

I woke up clear headed. I think that once I’ll intentionally position myself for success and truly accept that failure is part of the growth process, I’ll be blessed with those things I’ve been longing for. Although I acknowledge the latter (failure as the best thing that can happen to me), what has prevented meContinue reading “#AboutTrustingMyGut”

Daphné 2.0

Life is complex. But does it have to be? I have a hard time to find a balance between straightforwardness, which can sound harsh (and make people feel uncomfortable), and sugarcoating my words. I really admire and look up to those who can confidently manage both qualities simultaneously, without sounding passive-aggressive. Although I grew a lotContinue reading “Daphné 2.0”

#IfGodExists

#IfGodExists She won’t mind me questioning her existence. #IfGodExists She is waiting on my next move. #IfGodExists She is unapologetically fierce and beautifully honest. #IfGodExists She loves purposely and accepts unconditionally.   She forgives and understands. She accordingly provides. She never doubts and she believes. She judges not and always allows me to wonder ifContinue reading “#IfGodExists”

#ThePowerOfSymmetry

I was called beautiful twice in the space of a week. It came from two different individuals, and under two very different circumstances: The first time was sweetly whispered and unexpected in that way, definitely validating. It warmed every inches of my body. I *think* it was genuine and I greeted the compliment by aContinue reading “#ThePowerOfSymmetry”

#Catharsis

  Magic occurs when you stop judging yourself, When you allow your flaws to be seen Vulnerability to exist. Shame will hinder Everything. Paralyze you to your core, Cut the grass under your feet: Don’t let it have the last word. I was born Free-Spirited But that spirit was stolen by boundaries and conventions. IContinue reading “#Catharsis”

#AboutPatience

#AboutPatience Every time I felt challenged, I got extremely overwhelmed. Although my life might appear unorthodox for some people, I have been living very comfortable and cautious existence. Here’s the problem: nobody has ever reached the sky by being safe, and the sky is all I’ve been longing for. I’ve been meaning to explore thisContinue reading “#AboutPatience”

#BlameItOnMaxwell.

Once upon a time, we created music, and since then, nothing has ever been the same. There is a great deal of info we can deduct about each other, according to our musical tastes. Music fertilizes ideas, behaviors, shapes our minds, and inspires us. It’s incontestably one of the most powerful tools humans have atContinue reading “#BlameItOnMaxwell.”

#AreYouYou?

  Every once in a while there is a slight shift, some sort of spiritual awakening. Then, one day as you open your eyes, you realize you have been catering to a certain ideal, specific expectations that somehow were not necessarily aligned with your inner self. Deep down you might* have known all along thatContinue reading “#AreYouYou?”

#NeverEnough?

I never feel like I’m enough. I used to be an avid reader growing up and although I still read regularly there are so many others books to be read, so many authors I don’t even know about. I graduated last September. My studies were as challenging than rewarding and I am so grateful IContinue reading “#NeverEnough?”

Can We All Just Get Along? #PeaceOffering

   I recently celebrated the 11th anniversary of my arrival in New York. Eleven years, is a long time. Yet, when you meet an 11 year old, you feel as they don’t know much about life and that the best is yet to come. Of course I miss many things about my mother’s land: myContinue reading “Can We All Just Get Along? #PeaceOffering”

#InBecomingTheWomanIWasAlwaysMeantToBe

Life is challenging. No kidding. Constantly remind myself to be thankful for all the blessings in my life does not make me not complain about what things could be if I had spent more time focusing on things I really wanted. “Make it happen” they say. But is it that easy? There is a plethoraContinue reading “#InBecomingTheWomanIWasAlwaysMeantToBe”

About my upcoming trip, and packing…

It has been going on for  a month now. I have been packing… then unpacking… and re-packing… There is nothing like the excitement you feel when you are about to travel; at least for me. I have always loved it, so much that for a while was a flight attendant, so felt pretty good aboutContinue reading “About my upcoming trip, and packing…”

Intox vs detox

Many tend to rationalize the things others say and/or do according to their own standards and past experiences, myself included. I cannot deny that personal values blend with “statistics” help us assess our surrounding and navigate through the world the best we know, but could systematic assumption harm our good judgement? Or how could weContinue reading “Intox vs detox”
