The Bare Essentials

The Bare Essentials

If there’s one thing Coronavirus reminded me: it’s all about the bare essentials. On the 24th of April, we celebrated my mom’s birthday. It was a quarantine celebration. Just like a fine wine, she gets better with age. She is 53. Have you noticed she has a crown? A natural grey hair crown. Then, on May 13th, we celebrated my birthday. Unlike my mother’s it wasn’t a lockdown party so my friend came over. I’m 28. My friend, it is the bare essentials. Birthdays are very important to my family…

2019 : The year of the mind shift

2020 is in a month and some change… I feel it’s the perfect time to reflect on the year that’s almost over and get ready for the new year — all that without forgetting to live in the moment.The little introspection we are about to do is interesting because 2019 is, as I like to call it, the year of the mind shift.  Around this time last year (2018), I discovered the audiobook You are a Badass at making money by Jen Sincero. A game changer! If there is something I remember, everything is…

What I wish I knew before running …

Hello hello, If you follow me on Insta, you know I ran my very first relay race for Sint Maarten’s/Saint-Martin’s Day on November 11th. In case you didn’t know yet, we are one island with two different governments. I had fun! Maybe not running: the wind was against me, and I had two hills. However, I’m proud of me for finishing. The glory isn’t all mine though, my mom and a few people helped me mentally. Anyways…  Here’s what I wish I knew before running my first relay race : Tell your…

No more weight obsession; yes to self-acceptance

No more weight obsession; yes to self-acceptance

Hello guys, Today, I’d like to talk about a sensitive subject: self-acceptance. I’m not leaving in a utopic world thinking; I’m the only one having complexes. We all do! And women, in general, tend to feel more concerned than men. How many times, I heard my girlfriends say I don’t like my nose, my boobs are too small, my arms are too big, etc. For me, my problem is my weight.
