I have been blogging for many years now and I never thought that I would be a nominee for a blogger award. This came in total surprise and I am loving it!
It is crazy but with this new start on my blog journey I have come in contact with so many beautiful people. You all have been affirming my purpose on this journey and I am so grateful for every single person who takes their time to read what I have to say.I want to give a huge thanks to Heidi from Braving Mental Illness for nominating me. Her blog topics are so important to many of us who can relate and to those that seek better understanding of mental health. I appreciate her sharing her brave story about her mental health and guidance for those willing to learn. Please pay her blog a visit and just take some time to read what she has to say.

The questions from Heidi and my answers…
1.What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
My favorite flavor of ice cream is vanilla and cookies n’ creme is my second favorite. I have sensory issues when it comes to crunchy and smooth mixing so other ice creams are out of the question.
2.How has your blogging changed your life?
Blogging has changed the way I look at myself. I am not looking for acceptance but it is an amazing feeling when the universe brings people in my direction to let me know that what I am doing is changing someone else. I am empathizing and changing perspectives of people who may have never considered it. I am changing the world and that is changing my life.
3.In a few words, what would you say to calm someone who is struggling with thoughts of suicide?
I would tell them that it is okay to be sad and that they should never surrender to the pain all of what they are. You are more than your pain and you have a purpose that involves you sharing your story with the world.
4.Has it been difficult for you to share your story or challenges to the world?
Oh my yes! For me, I feel like what do I say? Where do I start? That’s a long story and it is still being written. Haha. I have been living this life all this time and I have yet to put into words this story I have to share with the world. The judgement of others has been a huge thing too but overtime I found I didn’t care about what others thought of me. I have learned that the real stick around and the lessons stick around to teach. One day my story will be clear enough for me to share but for now I practice.
5.Do you have any regrets?
I have regrets, yes. I believe we all have regrets.
6.What is your favorite song and why?
My favorite song is Belong To You by Sabrina Claudio ft. 6lack. Why? Because omg the words speak to the love I want to have for myself and also with my lover. I feel like your first intimate interaction should be with self and your lover(s) should mirror just that. If they don’t…
“If you ain’t here for love
Don’t you dare stay”
7.If you could vacation anywhere, where would you go?
I would love to vaca in Hawaii. I was actually trying to go this coming February for my birthday as well as a friend of mines. I am not sure due to financial reasons but with these things I just never know.
8.What is favorite color?
My favorite is black. I know it seems like a dark and closed off color but I think of black as a color that attracts.
9.What is your definition of beauty?
My definition of beauty is the look of your divine higher self. I believe being your best self in the moment is what makes a person beautiful. Just allowing yourself to feel all that you are and being open to building onto yourself. Understanding and accepting that you are a multidimensional being that is capable of all possibilities. Being your best self in your moment should never compare to another.
10.What is the happiest moment in your life you can remember
The happiest moment in my life is when I gave birth to my children.

Infinite Love 🖖🏼
