An Essay By My Daughter | Moonshot Thinking


When I first read this essay that my 12 year-old middle schooler recently wrote for one of her assignments, I knew I had to share it… Not because I wanted to flaunt my kid’s intelligence or anything, but mostly because I appreciate her openness to life… and the mindset it takes to make it. Also, what kind of mother would I be if I wasn’t super-duper proud of my baby!? 😀  – And as you can imagine, with her beautiful smile on, she said “Yes!”, when I asked for her permission to share this with my readers.

It’s undeniable to me (and her dad) that my daughter is very smart and does great in school, but this moment of pride has more to do with her ability to smilingly write an essay on the subject of Moonshot thinking referring to the inspirations she sees around herself while remaining true to her own beliefs, and shortcomings as a pre-teen. Her words are put in a simple manner that gives you a basic idea of what she’s trying to get across. Take a look…



Moonshot Thinking by Pearla-Lynn Teko-Folly.


What is it?

I think that moonshot thinking is thinking beyond what you can do. Trying harder than you thought. Not giving up on what you believe can happen. Not letting go of your ideas.


Examples of Moonshot thinking.

Some examples of moonshot thinking are like when those men said “We’re going to put this guy on the moon!”. That shows moonshot thinking, because they didn’t know if it would actually work, so they said that because they believed that they could do it.


Who are moonshot thinkers?

One person that I think represents moonshot thinking is my mom, because she wanted to create her own fashion blog and an online clothing store, and she didn’t know if she was able to do it. Now, because she believed and worked hard for what she wanted, she has two of her own websites: her fashion blog and her online shop. She’s an entrepreneur and is working hard to grow her business. She is also a motivational speaker and she styles and decorates houses and plans parties. That’s because she didn’t give up, but she kept believing that she could and now she did.


Why is it important?

Because if you believe in yourself and try harder you will be a moonshot thinker; and if you are a moonshot thinker, you will see how that affects you and makes things easier for you in life, because you can think and plan further ahead, then you will finally reach what you were thinking or planning because you didn’t give up and didn’t stop believing.


How am I a moonshot thinker?

I don’t really think I am a moonshot thinker yet, but my parents inspire me to work on it; because I don’t really think ahead or farther in some situations. Like sometimes, I just like to think about what is going to happen later or after something else happens. For example if I were to go somewhere, I would probably be thinking about what is going to happen, what we would do because sometimes when I think ahead it makes me feel like it actually is going to happen but sometimes, I don’t because stuff don’t always happen the way you planned it to go.


Isn’t this precious!? An innocent mind like being so far ahead of what we, adults are trying to accomplish today. I cannot be more proud of my baby-girl, because this mindset this early in life will literally give her wings!!!

On a parting note, let me remind you, as I just noticed myself reading her essay, kids do see and hear what happens around the house. They see, notice, and have their parents’ attitudes and aptitudes! They see that passions, the belief to fuel them up, and the hard work that support them will ultimately pay off.


What’s your attitude around the house? What’s your attitude in times of crises? What are you showing and teaching your kids!?

Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by.






Having just to turn the page on a month that has been very hectic for me, I look back and realize that the last few weeks were far from being a walk in the park. Gosh, I’m not complaining, because God knows how grateful I am for the blessings and even the lessons. However, having to treat myself to a mini-spa in the comfort of my own home, to unwind and refresh when I needed it the most, was one of the most rewarding things I’ve actually done to ease the burden of the tiredness.

With the ended month being one in which we celebrated the International Women’s Day, we all chanted and praised the bricks of foundations, women are posing everyday all around the world, but there’s one question we women need to ask ourselves… How I’m treating myself? How am I taking care of myself? Reality is most women (and men) are out there caring for their loved ones and even strangers, working diligently to make the world a better place, but they have zero time and consideration in treating themselves. They just don’t! But the matter of the fact is, you must treat yourself, and you must do it unapologetically! 


This is not a selfish act, but in fact a self-love gesture toward your own psychosomatic health. If you don’t care for yourself, treat yourself to a whatever you love doing that will benefit not only your body, but your entire being, how well do you think you can take care of your loved ones in the long term? The thing is, well often, we think unproportionally big or out of our means and needs. The luxury trip to the 5-star salon or hotel, for example, may be your ideal “treat yourself” moment; and if you can afford that, hey girl, you totally deserve it! But, what if you can’t? Well, that’s where you call in your imagination; – A very simple one actually –  and If you don’t have your mini-spa essentials ready, a quick trip to a nearby store should do the trick… Lucky me, Soap And Glory and Boohoo were kind enough to send me some products and items which tended to my own mini-spa moment!  

While I was home alone sans the kids, I had a “Eureka!” moment. Maybe it wasn’t that big of “Eureka!” situation, but grant it, the unnerving and exciting idea of pampering myself was quite enchanting. So I decided to treat my face to a Soap And Glory face mask that was in my goodies package and then I enjoyed a nice, warm, and soothing bath with all the bell and whistles… Yes! You can lit scented candles, add some aromatic or therapeutic oils and petals to your bath, and let an enchanting music of your choice playing in the background. I did; and it was suave and debonair!

Now, what would be a pampering moment without the feel of a soft and smooth skin afterwards? Soap And Glory and Boohoo have come to the rescue again.  It was time to tune in to a re-run of a favorite TV show and pamper myself to a soft baby skin. We all love and yearn for that soft baby skin, don’t we? 

If you haven’t tried Soap And Glory’s ” The Righteous Butter”  and “Hand Food” cream this might be the season to stock up on a couple of those and get your skin ready for the beach and those summer outfit days. Without even a feel to the touch, I appreciated that the scents weren’t overpowering. After my bath, I butter up myself with the Righteous Butter (which is made with softening Shea Butter and Aloe Vera) and it soaked right into my skin and left it smooth and soft.


I love it; and while I’m working on getting my Summer body ready to show off the bikini ensemble boohoo has sent me along with these pampering products, I might as well, keep treating myself to these mini-spa moments whenever I can. Why? Because I deserve it; and so do you! Treat yourself, girlfriends! 

Cheers to a fabulous week ahead!

My 2017 Word Of The Year… What’s Yours?


Hey babes! Another week has come and gone. Can you believe we’re wrapping up the third week of January already? Seems like the days just fly by faster and faster! Last week, I shared with you the 6 (plus bonus) things you need to do in order to have a happy and successful year – You can read the full post here. One of the things I believe is an essential habit to adopt for a fabulous year ahead is choosing a word of the year. Being that I’m not a big of a new year’s resolution person, this just speaks to me. I rather live an improving life every day instead of wrapping my mind around the whole “new year, new me” resolutions. Maybe “New Year, Improved Me”? Let’s just say I like that better. Anyway, where does the whole “Word of the year” thing come from? I honestly can’t remember where and how I came across this, but when I did, I knew it was something I wanted to implement in my yearly goals and habits, and quite frankly, it’s working great for me. 

So how does the whole thing work? –  Each year, you chose a word on which you’d want to focus and reflect upon during the new year. It could be a word in regard of something you want to face, beat, or steer away from this year. Some examples: Fear. Procrastinating. Focus. Or something you want to improve or gain. Other examples would be Clarity or Consistency.  Instead of having everything scattered and having to make an empty resolution, the word of the year should help you keep your focus and sanity when you start feeling unorganized and jumping from one thing to another. Obviously, you still want to write down your goals and work toward them, but this one word will be your word of focus to help you discipline yourself in whatever area you need to!

This year, I initially chose the word “Consistency”. We know Consistency in everything we do is a must; Upon some more reflection, I changed it to “Manifest”…


MANIFEST: Such a strong and powerful word! I wanted to be stronger spiritually and mentally and practice more of the law of attraction… I want to work more toward manifesting or attracting the right things and more awesomeness into my life! It’s been 3 weeks into the new year, and I can only be grateful for all the things I’ve manifested into my life already. Continually praying, meditating, and having positive thoughts even in the midst of the unfortunate situations that may occur, are some of the things I practice daily toward my 2017 word.

So do you have a word of the year? If yes, what is it? If you’re just learning about this, what do you think about this. I’m curious to know your thought. 🙂 

Thanks s much for reading and have a great start to the week. 

Love & Light, 



6 Things To Do To Have A Successful 2017

New-year-resolutions-goals-hypnozglam.comHappy Monday Beauties!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I heard some of you are still enjoying their 3-day weekend… We can all use that, right!?

I know it’s 3 weeks into 2017 already, but it’s never too late (or too early) to share tips or words on how to have a happy and successful year. By the way how are you doing with your new year’s resolutions? Whatever they are, I hope they’re working out for you. Often, we all need a little bit of inspiration here and there and today, I feel that I should share with you these 6 things that I believe, if you follow will help you achieve your goals this year. 

1Meditate and Pray – Daily meditations and prayers are a life-changer. 

2- Set realistic goals – New year resolutions are quite frankly becoming “old things”. Why? Well, because, for whatever reasons, they’re hard to stick to. “The new year, new me” phrase has gotten so much cliche, but I believe that as long as you set realistic and measurable goals, you should be able to work towards them and make things happen.


3- Choose a word of the year. – If you don’t know, this is being the new “it” thing most “goal diggers” are leaning towards these days. As mentioned earlier, new year’s resolutions can be complex things to do. Not that people can’t and don’t stick to them. If you do, kuddos to you, but choosing a word for the year gives you more chance to be focused on that very word which, in many ways, will ultimately help in being focused in achieving your goal. – I will go into more details in another post coming soon on this subject, and I will also tell you what my word for 2017 is.

4- Be consistent. – Consistency is key in every thing we do. You can’t achieve anything if you are not consistent in what needs to be done to get there.  This is something dear and near to my heart that I’m working on everyday.  Being consistent with the little things as reading my devotional everyday for example or being consistent with my blog, is critical for me to get to where I want to get. When you want great results, you’ve got to keep doing what needs to be done – I’ve read quite a few times that content is king, but consistency is queen.

5- Get inspired. – It’s a great thing to look for inspirations in others, but learn to remain true to yourself. Trying to be someone you’re not and copying their little moves will not do you any good. You can find inspiration in people, books, social media, TV shows, arts, almost everywhere, but make it your own. Authenticity is a quality that is not only easily recognized and applauded, but it will take you a long way.

6- Have faith and believe in yourself! – Have faith in God or whatever higher power you believe in and believe that you can do great things. If you don’t believe in yourself, (no one else will) you can’t accomplish anything! An undeniable key to success is believing in one self. Not everyone is talented and smart (Sorry but it’s the truth), but anyone that believe in their ability to work hard, practice, and make things happen and succeed, in fact, will succeed even when they’re not talented! – BELIEVE TO ACHIEVE!


Bonus. – Read more, learn a lot, do more of what you love, travel when you can, have meaningful conversations. Life is too short and precious to be wasted on things that take you nowhere. This year try to invest your time in doing things that will help you be the best version of yourself. – (See more about reading here!)

This is the perfect time of the year to make necessary changes in your life. March into your blessings and abundance!

Love & Light!
