Greetings and Good Morning M.A.I. Good People! Happy #MotivationMonday #EveofNewYearsEve We’re literally a week into the holiday vacation week, and so, far I’ve had a very relaxing and beautiful Christmas vacation with my husband and son! I will say, with limited usage of social media (and not just during the holidays), I am eliminating “social noise” and creating moments with my family where I’m fully present, and time is well spent and more memorable. I honestly cannot comp
Greetings and Good Monday Morning! As many of us return to “work” from the Thanksgiving holiday, I just want you to take a brief moment to reflect on your life. In the last week, I hope that you‘ve had an opportunity to be with the people that complete you, and bask in your life for a moment in time. We all have something to be thankful for and can find value in our daily lives. Although, times can be hard, the old adage that ”there’s someone worse off than you”, always rings
Greetings and Good Morning! Happy Monday folks! Thanksgiving is almost here! This year flew by, are you ready? Have you started your holiday shopping? Have you picked up the items on your grocery list for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner? Yeah, neither have I, LOL! I only have my turkey, but trust me I will be ready soon!

Greetings and Good Morning! Happy Monday folks! I took a break from the blog last week, after the mid-term elections. I needed a moment to breathe. But, it feels so good to be back this week! Once again the holiday season is amongst us, and I've been thinking and reflecting on the state of the world. I've been reflecting on my life, and with people within it and in my "orbit". This time of year, is the perfect time to check one's self, and their surroundings. I'm thankful for

Greetings and Good Morning! Happy Monday! ☀️ Today, I want to discuss a "word" that seems to have turned into a "buzzword" and has been a popular topic of discussion lately. For me, in my readings, I've come across articles online about being "authentic". This prompted me to think about it's importance in life. Many people walk around with a mask on, and afraid to be the real version of themselves in public. For some, it's out of fear of judgement and for others it's a way to
"Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men." ~Confucius Greetings and Good Morning!☀️😃☀️ It's such a beautiful autumn🍁🍂, Monday morning. I hope all is well with you, and that you're off to an amazing start! For this week's "Monday Motivation" post, I wanted to talk about having compassion, and the lack thereof in the world. Recently, I've had this feeling that compassion is a moral virtue that most people seem to have lost.
Greetings, Happy Morning and Good Morning! For "Mai Monday Motivation", I’m deeply humbled this morning by the thought of “Perseverance”. In the course of a week in a half, I've witnessed the loss of a loved one, and two “giants” in our American society. All three, when I think of their journeys over the past year, although very different in what they were facing, all of them put forth the same body of “spiritual armor” to persevere through the difficult road that was ahead o
Greetings and Good Morning, I hope that you're well! Today, I want to dive right into a concept that I've been mulling extensively over this past week. So with that said, I've had this thought of "perspective" and what it means to have "perspective as a motivator" on my mind. I've been wanting to understand why, "perspective is wonderful" and how it motivates me to be a better person. Recently, I was watching an episode of one of my favorite Netflix series, "Anne with an 'E'"
The past three weeks, I’ve been truly challenged and faced with adversity brought on by a health scare of a family member, my mother. This tribulation has made me stronger, and, from the very beginning, it checked my faith and character. What I'm about to share with you is deeply personal for me, and I don't take it for granted that my story may be a source of inspiration for someone in need. Three Sundays ago, I received a phone call from my father, informing me that my moth
