Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Happy Wednesday to you!

It may be the middle of the week; but, I choose to focus on the fact that today marks the start of a new month! I love new beginnings! I hope you are working on accomplishing the goals placed on your vision board. To see a portion of my October 2014 vision board, scroll down to my 9.28.2014 post. 

Today, I want to talk to you about my 1st published collection of poetry, THE NAIVE VOICES WISDOM: Part I. Since the age of eight, I've written thousands of poems, chronicling my personal journey. For the majority of my life, I kept my poetry private (only sharing them with a few family members & loved ones). However, while working at a summer camp one year, I met a lady who also wrote poetry. She encouraged me to get my works copyrighted. I delayed for a short while. However, at the end of my freshman year of college, I received my copyright certification for a large portion of my collection. It was a major accomplishment for me. Nevertheless, I was still afraid to share my works with the world. Fast forward to July 2014, I spent the entire month in consecration. During that time of meditation and self-reflection, God encouraged me to share my poetry with the world. I made the decision to release my poetry in manageable increments over the span of the next few years. This summer I released THE NAIVE VOICES WISDOM: Part I, which outlines my journey from adolescence to young adulthood, in relation to my community and my faith. I chose the title because the majority of the poems, included in this 1st book, were written during the ages of 14-16. The poems demonstrate a young lady, increasing in wisdom rapidly but still unaware of many things. The title describes how most people swing between a pendulum of ignorance and knowledge. You can preview and purchase your copy of my 1st published collection via the tab at the top of this website, THE NAIVE VOICES WISDOM.

I hope this post will encourage you to actualize your God given purpose and to remind you never to abort your dreams due to fear.
