Dreamer #TeamME

Team Me
/ti:m mi:/

Team me is self motivation. Team me, is being pro-self, it’s putting measures in place to keep yourself healthy and happy. Whether physically, mentally, emotionally or even spiritually.

You are your biggest cheerleader, and power source. To reach your goals in life and to be able to break barriers, YOU have to believe in yourself. Piloting through life isn’t easy, as we all can attest. From time to time you may feel down, stressed out or simply overwhelmed by situations in your life, take a break. To help others you need to take care of yourself first. Here are a few things to do to relax and de-stress:

  • Make a nice cup of tea, get cozy and read a novel.
  • Watch some funny videos on YouTube.
  • This one may be strange but clean your room… When I turn on the stereo and get cleaning it helps to de-clutter my mind.
  • Do some yoga, my favourite pose is the Shavasana, especially the part where I start to drift off to sleep.
  • Call up your best friend
  • Go get a pedicure with the bestie.
  • Not trying to fatten you up but go get some dessert, whether ice cream, frozen yogurt, or some cake.

I titled this article “The Dreamer” because that’s me. Ideas float about and I write them down hoping to one day get to it. I’ve taken ‘Team Me’ very seriously lately, and I’ve done something that I’m proud of. I decided to follow my dreams. I’m now a university student, majoring in Journalism. I believe life is too short and too uncertain to stick to the cookie-cutter pattern. Don’t restrict yourself because of fear.

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with blessings, love, and fulfilling adventures. Go into 2018 with team me at the forefront of your brain.
Do what makes you happy. Be #TeamME

With that I’ll leave you with my favourite quote:

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve always imagined.”

-Henry David Thoreau

For your 2017…

2016 was an…. interesting year. From the craziness of the Jamaican and American elections to the ever changing landscape of Jamaican culture and Reggae, it was a year filled with ups and downs with far more downs but thats all in the past.

For 2017, we have been given a fresh new book with 365 days to write a brand new chapter in our lives or maybe continue our story of achieving goals set from last year or the year before. Persons often say that a new year is just another day and therefore nothing will change. These persons may try to get in your way and get you down because remember, just because you plan on changing doesn’t mean other persons will also. Do not let them stop you but instead use the stones they throw at you to build your foundation and keep moving forward.

GO! Start that business! Plan that trip! Start your singing career! Every day is a new opportunity to write a new sentence in this chapter of your life, the only question is: what will you write today? Please share with us!

Blessings For 2016

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I wish you a happy, adventure-filled, and prosperous year. I’ll be cliché and say you’re not getting any younger.

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays, please don’t scold me for being missing for the past 2 weeks, thereabout. My laptop is having personal issues right now, I will be back to my regular posting pattern as soon as possible though.

For 2016 I have a couple posts ready (in my head) for you all, giving you a little bit of my Jamaican Christmas holiday 🙂 We have a lot to look forward to as well, February is Reggae Month, and Carnival season begins in the middle of Feb. Plus there will always be events for me to cover!

I look forward to enjoying 2016 with you all.

2015 in review

Happy New Year Everyone!!! 🙂

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,000 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
