For the past few months, I’ve been pretty consistent in my healthy eating habits journey; and I have to say that I’m happy about the changes that I’m seeing. We all know how beneficial it is for our overall health to eat clean. But most of the time, what we lack, once we made the decision to make a change and start the journey to a healthier, new, and fabulous us, is the ability to stay on that path. Clean eating can be challenging but not hard. Just like for most things in life, discipline is key! #MindOverMatter. View Post
Happy Tuesday Beauties,
Today, I decided to open up a little bit about myself. I’ve always been a very private person and putting myself out there has been a huge step for me. Even though I try as possibly as I can to refrain from posting about my private life here, I still feel like somehow, a part of me is been revealed through each post that I’ve published… and to be honest, this journey has thought me a lot about myself that I didn’t realized existed, and the amazing opportunities that I’m encountering are such a blessing!
– Below are some random facts about me.
Last Saturday, we got to celebrate this amazing man’s birthday! It was a great day filled with joy and good vibes! Just like any significant other who ensures that their second half has the happiest of birthdays, I made sure my baby spends an awesome day! If you do not believe in the fact that happiness is contagious, you certainly haven’t encountered a truly happy person yet; because when the (happy 🙂 ) birthday king was (is) happy, I’m happy; we’re all happy! No pun intended 🙂 . Joy truly is contagious! Make sure you spend time with people who make you twice as happy!
We started the day with a refreshing couple-massage session, then had a family brunch at one of our favorite French restaurants in town. Later in the evening, we had a birthday dine-out with some close friends. The night was still young and filled with more suprises, laughters and joy! I have shared a couple pics with my friends on Instagram but you can see below for a quick glimpse 🙂
Let’s give thanks!
I’ve probably stated this here before; maybe last Thanksgiving maybe not; I feel like it is something I will never get tired of saying. I feel like I really need to say it more often, so much that it sinks deep in the core of my being and yours. Gratitude is something we should express every single day. it’s a sentiment we should never cease to have. It should be our way of living. Life itself is to be grateful for. Some people do not have it anymore. Some others are fighting for theirs.
Many of the things that we take for granted are the simplest, smallest things. The food on the table, the family that loves us, the friends that got our back, the income we bring home, the things we enjoy doing that we can actually do, the simple fact that we are alive and well. I can go on and on. I can get very personal and tell you all the blessings that I’m counting, but I want to make this about you; yes if you’re reading this, I want you to know that there are so many blessings that are left to be counted, but we are so busy chasing the ones we think we don’t have that we actually can’t see the ones that have been bestowed upon us. Count your blessings! Today is a gift, tomorrow is not promised, so let’s celebrate life every single day. Let’s be thankful! Let’s count our blessings! Let us say our gratitude every single day because gratitude should be a way of living!
” Gratitude unlocks the fullness
of life. It turns what we have into
enough, and more. It turns denial into
acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to
clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home, a stranger
into a friend.”

Thanks for reading! And wherever you are, enjoy your turkey and be thankful:-)
A gift to be celebrated
Today is a of one a kind gift
To this gift I’m devoted
When I woke up
I knew God has blessed me with another year
I smiled and knelt down and then I looked up
I couldn’t say a word, then I smiled again, from ear to ear
At this very moment, short of words
To express my gratitude to the Lord of lords
I knew that I was blessed, Blessed to be well and alive
Blessed to open my eyes this morning and arise
My heart and whole being are full of gratitude
Gratitude for Life
A beautiful life
Gratitude for love
An unconditional love
Oh yes! My heart and whole being are full of gratitude.
As I knelt down, looked up and smiled from ear to ear
From deep down my soul, I yelled : THANK YOU
Thank you Lord
Thank you for another year
A prayer is alright , and THANK YOU
Is my prayer today
As I woke up to another blissful day,
I knelt down, looked up and say
Today is a good day to have a good day! Happy Birthday to me! 😉
