We had such an amazing time on board the Carnival Cruise line last week. I’ve never been on a cruise, and it was definitely one of the things on my bucket list this year. I’m so excited that I’m now able to cross that off my list, and it’s still just the beginning of the year! This year is definitely turning out to be quite amazing, to say the least.
Deciding to go on the cruise was so spontaneous. With all our schedules free for president’s weekend, we decided we just had to take advantage of it. And Oh! how glad I am that we did. It was definitely a trip I can never forget; with trying out new things, going to places and experiencing so much for the first time. Looking back at some of the clips and videos we took, I can’t believe I experienced so much in such little time! I’d give you all the details, but like the saying goes, if I tell you, I’d have to kill you. Ha! Let’s just say some memories are better kept a secret, and I promised everyone on the trip with me, I’d never tell.

A little poetry I wrote, hope you enjoy it:
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,

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
