Fun Friday: My fave video of the moment!

f36c72b540a9677bd0c44b7e07a8b45bGood Afternoon! I’ve had a bit of writer’s block the past few days but I told myself that I would post as long as I felt that it would be inspiring and/or entertaining to my readers. I then remembered what day it was: Friday. It’s the end of a long work/school week and at my job as director/after school program supervisor, Friday becomes “Fun Friday”. It’s all about relaxing and having fun because the kids don’t do homework at the program on Fridays and are able to play with toys, do art projects or play games on their tablets instead. It’s a great way to end the week so I figured I could create a “Fun Friday” of my own on here! Every Friday, I’ll post something or someone who made me stop and smile/laugh in hopes that you will feel the same way!

This week, I was obsessed with watching a little 4-year-old boy dance on “Ellen”. He was dancing to a song called “Juju on That Beat” and while I was shaking my head at the title and lyrics (guess I’m showing my age!), I couldn’t stop smiling because not only could this little boy dance, but you could tell that he really enjoyed himself and would put on the same performance regardless of if anyone was watching. As adults, many of us worry about what others think of us so we are hesitant to say or do things that we feel will get a negative response from others. It’s hard to be true to yourself when you feel like you are always being analyzed and criticized but try to remember a time when you were young and didn’t really care about others opinions because you were happy and in your own little world. I’m not telling you to act like a child but capture the essence of the joy and carefree spirit that kids have and spread it around because it’s contagious. Check out the video below and be sure to share your own videos using the hashtag #funfriday so I can see what make you guys smile!



New post coming on Monday and I’ll be live on Facebook on Wednesday night at 8pm EST so stay tuned!

Have a great weekend and always remember to love and live luxuriously!



Rainy Days


Good Afternoon! I have a bit of time before I head back into work and it’s been a minute since I’ve posted something so I decided to start May off by posting a bit of inspiration! I have been so focused on the things that aren’t going right in my life that I’ve blinded myself from all the good that has. It’s like everyday is a rainy day and you have a dark cloud follow you everywhere you go that blocks the sunlight from entering.

This weekend after some self-reflection(and a trip to the Apple Store on Saturday to get a Macbook Air yesssss!), I decided that I wasn’t going to carry that dark cloud around anymore.  One of my favorite quotes is “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain”I am going to find light even in the darkest situations and focus on the lessons that are ultimately blessings in my life and that even the rainiest of days give you something to look forward to once the rainbow appears.

It’s 29 days until my 30th birthday and I plan on celebrating every day leading up to it. I’m looking forward to what lies ahead for me and I am going to try my best to make the most out of every day…and that goes for the rainy days too! Love y’all!

Until next time always remember to love and live luxuriously!
