” I don’t write poems to melt your heart, I write them, so our hearts can melt together.”
- Subhan Zein
I’m real, I’m real, they say
Yet knowing we’re surrounded by fake, we still stay
Hoping they’ll one day change, because we’re true
Finally you realize, no respect is given for being you
All some people want, is a piece of you
They’re so used to walking all over you, and
Keeping you around, until they get all they can out of you
Such is this world we live in
But no, I wouldn’t change a thing
Because out of the bad, always comes so much good
Be patient love, ‘cos such valuable life lessons, need to be clearly understood
Without going through them, where would we be
I don’t know about you, but that naive little girl you once knew,
No, that’s no longer me
The longer we live, the more we’ll learn
We’ll take everything bad, and put a turn
Because oh, the optimist we’ve chosen to be
Much better than living a pessimistic life, we’re accostumed to see
Believe in yourself and who you are,
You’re the child of the most high God, above par
So beautiful people, don’t ever let this world get you down,
Because in the end, you’re the one wearing that crown
Love you all,
“I Read, I Travel, I Become.” – Derek Walcott
Being in Hawaii, surrounded by so much beauty — the ocean, nature, the sweet chirping from birds as music to my ears. The sun, sea, sand and gorgeousness all around really put into perspective how beautiful life is. Some people think we travel to escape life, however, for me that’s not true. I travel so life doesn’t escape me. There’s so much to see and experience and learn. Different cultures, languages, food and customs. Why be content with little when you can see the world?
Someone recently asked me what I would do, if I could do anything at all. It got me so excited just thinking and talking about it! “Travel” I said. I’d want to travel all over the world! But not just travel; to do great work! To be a philantropist. To make an impact everywhere I go. To make a difference. To inspire, empower, motivate and help people along the way. To be selfless. To live, to learn, to grow, to teach and to find my true self and passion along the way. That’s my goal.
Just Imagine, the sky is the limit, and you can do whatever you want, if money and time isn’t of the essence, what would you really wanna do? #LifeGoals

Happy February, my beautiful friends! I can’t believe it’s already the second month of the year! This year started off so wonderfully, January was definitely a great month! I have this amazing feeling that it’s just gonna get better from here (Positive thoughts = A Positive Life) So it’s positivity all the way!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’d know I was in Hawaii for a little over a week, and Oh! What a wonderful week that was! Paradise, is the word that comes to mind. It was my second time in Hawaii, although, my first time on the beautiful island of Maui. The last time around I was in Oahu, home to Honolulu and the famous Waikiki beach. Both islands are so beautiful, yet so different. Where Waikiki is known for their amazing shopping and nightlife, Maui is more laid back. A perfect place to experience the real Hawaii, a small town-like vibe, perfect for relaxation and rejuvenation on the white-sand beaches while watching the glorious sunsets.
I did a bunch of different things during my time there, from a Luau to a sunset dinner cruise, and even went whale watching — which I loved! I will be sharing pictures from my trip in a few different posts. Hope you enjoy! <3
