DAY 24: Read The Signs

Whatever stage you are at right now in life, just know that there are ample lessons to be learned from it. Our world is ever-evolving, always changing and often full of signs directly spelling out these messages as clear as a “Stop” sign. The bright red commands your attention, and the four-lettered word instructs you as to how you should proceed. When you are lucky enough to hear a call from the universe, make sure to pay attention. Signs come in different volumes and with different levels of clarity. Treasure the moments where you hear with certainty, and open your … Continue reading DAY 24: Read The Signs

DAY 23: 100 Unsung Prayers

100 Unsung Prayers A poem by Arielle London Breathe in a holiday Breathe out a moment to sleep You relinquish thoughts You preach your wrongs You even rap in your dreams Tell me Why does it always start the same And end somewhere so deep Did you lose your way Along the space Or time continuum Where did it lead? Are you the one Without the sun Shining down On your pretty physique Perhaps you are Maybe you’re too far From where the UV rays can reach I miss the days He said my name Its something So small to … Continue reading DAY 23: 100 Unsung Prayers

DAY 22: Adulting

Being an adult is learning that you can’t always do the thing that you want to do, but rather you should do the right thing. Whether that is the responsible thing, the productive thing, or the moral thing, as you grow so does your relationship with doing what is right. When you’re a child you can often rationalize that “you don’t know any better” and so your choices are 50/50. But when you’re an adult, a seasoned human being on this planet living life by trial and error, you can’t plead ignorance, can you? Especially if you have been in … Continue reading DAY 22: Adulting

DAY 21: Oh Ya, It’s A “Challenge”

The thing about a challenge is that it is challenging. If you didn’t at some point want to quit, or want to cut corners around rules or cheat, then it wouldn’t even be a challenge in its nature. It would simply be a task. I set 3 main attainable goals for my 30 day challenge, and so far I have succeeded every single day, but not without a cost. For instance, one of my goals is to wake up by a certain hour every day (or earlier) and I have done that… which has been great! However, I find myself … Continue reading DAY 21: Oh Ya, It’s A “Challenge”

DAY 20: Peace of Mind With Taraji

I am officially 2/3 of the way through my 30 day challenge and I can tell you that I definitely notice a difference in my day-to-day routine thus far. Still, I will save the observations and conclusions for the end of the 30 days. When I have officially completed my goal. Tonight I wrote an article on my mental health website London Mind Fit about Taraji P. Henson’s new show on Facebook Watch called Peace of Mind With Taraji. I felt compelled to write the piece for a few reasons which I explain in detail throughout the article. I am … Continue reading DAY 20: Peace of Mind With Taraji

DAY 19: Xmas Reflections

Christmas Day has come and almost gone, but one thing is for certain, it has not been without reflection. Christmas is one week before the end of the year, and this Christmas was particularly quiet, so reflective thoughts naturally entered my brain. As I did an inventory of my life’s goals, and I considered where I’m at now, it dawned on me that I forgot just how much I am in control of my own experience. When we don’t have a moment to sit back and pause, we often glaze over certain aspects of our lives because to a certain … Continue reading DAY 19: Xmas Reflections

DAY 17: Chess Moves

Years ago I recognized the need to create a brand for my artistry. Everyone in the industry has one, and so it felt as though the smartest thing to do was to pick a brand that would have the greatest longevity for my personality. I factored in things like happiness, my interests, and the sustainability of a persona. In the end, I couldn’t find anything except authenticity. I committed to speaking my truth as I knew to be at any given time. I committed to being myself. I committed to making music and art that was in my heart and … Continue reading DAY 17: Chess Moves
