Riding the Wave!

Not having the ability to travel or go out and view the amazing wonders of the world and just enjoy life has been such a downfall moving back to the states! Every day since moving back I have wished to just pick up and go back to a world that was just so stress-free and pressure-less. The pace of being back has just become so fast and easy to make mistakes. To date faster, love faster, age faster, work faster; yet missing all the signs of if we actually enjoy what we are doing or gaining any results. Living life so fast that we are missing what it’s like to actually live and love and be in tune with oneself. Finding qualities in people and things to understand why you enjoy it in the first place or why you know something is not for your own benefit. After really searching within for the past couple of weeks, Life has taught me to just, 

                    RIDE THE WAVE! 

To literally ride out the waves that I find interest in and not try to move so quickly that the wave engulfs me. To not let the waves I have in my life, whether big or small take advantage of my drive to succeed.  Some of our waves are smaller and it’s simple to ride them out. But for the rest of us, our waves are bigger and stronger that if we are not ready for them, they will wipe us out instantly. If we continue to forget about enjoying the little things and waiting for the next best thing, we will never be satisfied with what we have! Grab your board, pop-up, and take pride in taking the time to understand the wave ahead. #Surfsup!

    Solo Honeymoon in the Maldives! 


    So I had finally arrived in the Maldives and I had  left one humid place to the next. I arrived later at night so it was pretty dark out but it was humid never the less. I waited about 45 minutes for the speedboat to come and we were literally on water to head to the hotel for a good hour. My recommendation would be if you have motion sickness, you should probably go for the seaplane. It’s a bit on the pricey side but it would probably be worth it.  I got splashed once or twice but considering the fact I love water I was totally okay. I stayed in an All- Inclusive Resort that I would recommend to ANY and EVERYONE! 

    MEERU ISLAND RESORT AND SPA! 

    To sum it all up, The Maldives is nothing short of AMAZING. It was the most at peace place that I have ever been in my life. The atmosphere and vibes from everyone was soo relaxing. (Considering everyone was with their significant other) I was LITERALLY the only solo person there, but the views were something you see on tv. The breeze, music, food, people, everything  had been a dream come true! I’ve never seen water so blue in my life! ❤️ the reflections that I was able to ponder upon being in such a perfect setting encouraged me get so in tune with my thoughts FINALLY! The staff I guess thought it was a great joke to prepare my room for a honeymoon but I can adapt to any situation! 🤗🤗🤗 Here are a few pics of my trip to the Maldives! 



    Hope you enjoyed the Views like I did! Pictures doesn’t  even give it justice you just have to see it for yourself! 😘😘

    New Journey: Traveling Towards my Passion! 

    A year ago I would have never thought I would be where I am today. Starting this travel journey has been absolutely amazing! I have dreamed of traveling to different countries all my life and now that I have gotten the opportunity and have checked off some amazing places off my bucket list, I am overjoyed with happiness. But now I ask myself, What am I doing outside of traveling and posting on social media? Since traveling has been a childhood goal, do I let the rest of my childhood goals fall to the waist side because I completed one? 

    ABSOLUTELY NOT! 

    Yes it’s awesome to have been on this travel journey but there’s so much more that I want to accomplish. It’s great to have been able to go to a new country every month but I also want to further my education. The time has come to where I have to choose. I have to make the decision to pause one to do the other which is why I paused traveling the WORLD and now traveling towards my PASSION. With my backpack full of books on my shoulder and this year long path ahead, I will be more focused on getting A’s on my tests than stamps In my passport. I will be more focused on standing in line for new books than standing in line for security. 


    I am beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to travel but for me, I have to get back focused to the task at hand and that’s pursuing this higher level education! Eventually I’ll be able to get my passport back out and see the world and hope you’ll join me! 

    No worries, I will still be updating on my AMAZING vacation this summer! 🙂 

    Stay tuned and wish me luck! 😘😘

    5 Facts on Why You Should Travel Solo at Least Once A Month 

    QUEENS AND KINGS, you ever feel like the world has just grabbed you and now you can’t even think for yourself because everything is happening so fast? Work has gotten busy, your relationships has required more time, you now have children and you no longer have time to do the things you use to do. I completely get it! But one thing you HAVE to remember is you MUST take time for yourself to regroup and get your thoughts together. No traveling does not mean you have to travel around the world, it’s simply getting into your car and traveling somewhere near or far SOLO. Here are 5 Facts on why you should travel solo at least once a month!

    1. HAVING TIME TO FOCUS! 

    Even if it’s just going to a museum, a coffee shop, or even a park! Whether it’s a book, a knitting project, or even thinking about your goals, taking the time to focus on the things you enjoy and yourself is a must to a happy life! Everyone knows once you lose focus on one thing, if you don’t come back to it you will forget it! Taking your monthly solo trip will prevent you from losing focus on your plans.

    2. DO THE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO!

    Ever go somewhere with friends and you say an idea but the group doesn’t want to do that or they complain if they have to? Why put yourself through that when you can go somewhere and enjoy it ON YOUR OWN! For example, if you’re into Zumba and wanted to go to a class, you ask your friends and they say no, half of you will not even go. But what if you decided to just get up and go on your own? I bet you would enjoy it and appreciate the fact that you did what you wanted to do without anyone complaining! Be independent, see the world, and stop letting others hold you back!

    3. RELAX FROM LIFE.

    Listen, trips don’t have to be to a different country or a different state, travel to your local spa, movie theatre, nail shop, or better yet to your local winery! Heck take a day trip to the beach or if your winding down is dancing all night long in a club then by all means turrrnnuuppppppp! Whatever may be your way of relaxing, do it without anyone telling you it’s time to go home or they’re ready to go home, or better yet, not having any restrictions at all.

    4. NOT HAVING TO PLEASE ANYONE! 

    People, we simply CANNOT please everyone and that’s okay! Yes we try over and over and over again but somehow we always tend to slip up. Taking a solo trip is your time to not care about slipping up, not caring about anyone’s issues or being that friend counselor, not caring about what is going on in everyone’s life and comparing yours to theirs, and not having to pretend that your life is perfect. This is about you appreciating YOU! Turn your phone off, grab that journal and simply focus on yourself!

    Most of all,
    5. IT MAKES YOU STRONGER! 

    Sometimes we just need a break from life to appreciate ourselves and how far we’ve come! Ladies and Gentlemen, we are blessed to be here so why not take time to appreciate that? Don’t let life break you down when self love will build you up! This trip is more than just going out and spending money, it’s about regaining your focus, setting your goals, and bringing new ideas to your life! It’s so easy to get in a repetition in life when you see the same things and people every day. This trip will give you the chance to think of new ideas, new beginnings, and a new view on life! Of course it will come with time but what better way to sell to your spouse or yourself that every month you need time to become a better you? 😜😉
