Visiting Oregon and meeting some pretty dope creatives @markus.effin.prime
@byanthonytaylor @rosexleon was all about closing the gaps of borders, mediums and the unknown of a new place. Cool to know I can reach out to some familiar faces when I return.👊🏾💪🏾

Holland is truly beautiful in spring. If you are here, instead of going to the center, rent a bike and just bike out of the city.
This dijk is on the way to Monnickendam, a small Dutch village just outside of Amsterdam.

“You can't live in your mind and expect those dreams to become real, without the work. Reality requires actions that might feel scary, but that is what is required if you want to find true love. Don't expect it to come and rescue you. You have to rescue yourself.”

🌐The Southern Sun Cape Sun is in the City Centre of Cape Town, South Africa. 🌐Indoor pool, gym, car rental, chauffeur service, courier service, Riempies Restaurant and Le Bar and Lounge. 🌐Views of Table Mountain, Robben Island & Table Bay. 🧝🏻♀️~ “It is rated as a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ hotel, the service is excellent, the breakfasts are amazing with a live pianist, but I found the interior to be outdated and old, it definitely needs a revamp with new bathrooms, carpets and new fixtures...”
New York City will always be one of my favorite places to visit!🗽🚖🌃 .
I love that no matter how many times you go there’s always something new to see but there’s also the same familiar places you love to visit.
I love the hustle and bustle of being in the city that never sleeps. On one street you can be lost in a see of tourists but if you walk a few streets over you can pass children playing in the school yard during recess. .
I love the energy of the city. I love that people are chasing their dreams and I love that you can cheer them on while they come true. .
What’s your favorite part of NYC? Would love to hear in the comments. .
Blog post on my trip to NYC coming soon! Link in bio. .
I solute you 🌍 to many more magnificent views, clean beaches and clear skies. For little do you know how happily humbled I am by this breathtaking land you have provided us with 🙏 thank you. #earthday

Travel Diaries | Get lost in the city
When I travel I like to have somewhat of an itinerary prepared. However, sometimes I like to just go wherever the city takes me. I put my itinerary to the side, pick a street to wonder off to and explore. Hint, hint, you’ll find the best hidden gems and ultimately find your way around..
Staying safe when traveling solo:.
If you are a solo traveler and want to get lost in a city, make sure to be cautious of your surroundings especially when going through alleyways. Traveling solo is one of the most rewarding experiences, but staying vigilant and having a plan b is a must! .

what does body positivity ACTUALLY mean? 🤷🏻♀️🙇🏻♀️🙆🏻♀️
i hear terms like “body positivity,” “self love,” “body respect, “positive power” all the time thrown around on social media and via brands. heck, i throw these terms around!
but what exactly does it mean to be “body positive”? i’ve mentioned this before but i still struggle when i see full-body photos of myself.
though i am considered medically recovered from my eating disorder the desire to compare myself, judge my body, edit my photos, and “fix” certain areas doesn’t go away.
i sometimes feel hypocritical because while i preach about the ambiguous term “body positivity” i still feel a dopamine release when people “like” or comment on my photos.
i’ve noticed that photos of my face and body are the ones that get the most “likes” and i notice the unhealthy thoughts in my head from receiving validation from those “likes” or comments.
i’m not perfect, and i often wonder if others feel this way, too.
so how do i deal with it and how do i define “body positivity” for myself?
ideally for me, body positivity is KNOWING my body, what it NEEDS (for nutrition, physically, spiritually and emotionally) and loving all of it and the shape my body is naturally most healthy in, without judgement.
ok but HOW to do all that? in a couple ways:
– i acknowledge the negative thought patterns and try my best not to judge them, and instead, reframe them; “i am more than my appearance, it’s not my looks but my energy and story that attracts people to me.”
– i NEVER save clothes that are too small for me anymore “hoping” i will fit into them. something doesn’t fit? i don’t find it flattering on me? bye bye 👋🏼 ehm, usually jeans lol
– i try my best to LISTEN to my body. i have a responsibility to my body. to respond to its sensations of hunger or fullness and the need for movement or rest.
– i have an incredible support system who CALLS ME THE HECK OUT when i’m mean to myself. they make me stop and think about what i said (as if i said something mean about a friend, i mean, i did, i said something mean about THEIR friend) and they make me say 3 nice things about myself.

MENTAL HEALTH + MEDICATION 💊| dipping my toe into the water / world of pharmacology (told you the puns and idioms wouldn’t stop 🤷🏻♀️)
first off before you read anything i want to say, THERE IS NO SHAME IN TAKING MEDICATION FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH!!!!!
i was first prescribed medication for my depression and anxiety in 2015 from a psychiatrist at the intensive outpatient psychiatric hospital i was entered into and where i received my first diagnosis of my mental health condition.
i was vehemitley against starting medication. my mother worked in pharmaceuticals growing up and always preached the narrative that “all drugs are bad” and “too many people are hopped up on drugs that make them crazy or turn them into a vegetable.” yeah, that is completely FALSE. but i believed it.
i felt desperate, scared, and so out of control from the demons inside of me that i agreed to start medication for my condition.
but i wasn’t happy about it. i felt so much guilt and shame. that i couldn’t just “change” or “be happy.” that i needed to have HELP. “only crazy people take medications.” yeah, that demon voice in my head can be BRUTAL.
during this time i met an incredible person who revealed to me she, too, was on medication, and actually the SAME one as me. “but you seem so normal.” i said. and that’s because it is NORMAL to take medication when you have a medical issue.
she changed the distorted narrative i had in my head and explained it to me this way, “if you had diabetes would you refuse insulin? if you had a heart problem and had to take medication would you call yourself ‘crazy’ for that?” of course not! taking medication for depression or anxiety or any other mental health issue does NOT make you crazy. for me, it means my brain chemistry is DIFFERENT and needs some help keeping my levels in place. JUST like any other body ailment.
i see a psychiatrist regularly to regulate my progress on medication and talk about how it’s affecting me. and let me tell you medication HAS helped me. it’s not a “fix all” ; i still have to go to therapy and work hard to practice my skills, but it’s equivalent for me as any other maintenance for a condition.
