Following Divine Signs

It’s a crazy, surreal, indescribable feeling when you realize that life is not random -- that it has purpose. When you realize that there are signs everywhere of choices you should make, directions to take, validations of your gut instincts, it can feel overwhelming. It can be confusing, but I’ve found that the more you… Continue reading Following Divine Signs

Discovering My Purpose

This year I have made up my mind to be myself openly, authentically, and unapologetically-- all things that are pretty much out of my comfort zone. On my father’s side, I am a woman of color, but I was raised solely by my white mother. I am Brazilian-born, but American-raised. I love creative writing and… Continue reading Discovering My Purpose

Opportunity We are getting to the end of this series, and I wanted to say thank you to all of you for giving me the opportunity to express myself. Whether this is the first time you’re reading something written by me, or you’ve read all of the P.U.R.P.O.S.E Series, thank you. Opportunity is hard to… Continue reading Pursuing P.U.R.P.O.S.E Pt 5

Resilience Raise your hand if you think you’re resilient. Now, keep your hand up if you’ve NEVER quit ANYTHING. Not a diet, New Years resolution, or job. I’m pretty sure everyone’s hands went down, or at least the majority. Honestly, I’ve quit all three, and some for reasons as simple as being a quitter. It’s… Continue reading Pursuing P.U.R.P.O.S.E – PT 3

Prosperity In case you didn't guess, this post is going to be about money. Do you really think I would be working so hard that my eyelids droop sometimes, missing out on the "fun" of my 20s, and constantly working on becoming a better business woman if I did not see it making me money?… Continue reading Pursuing P.U.R.P.O.S.E – Pt 4

Understanding Sing with me, "HOW CAN WE COMMUNICATE. IF YOU DON'T HEAR WHAT I SAY. WHAT I NEED FROM YOU IS UNDERSTANDING". For the longest, I just wanted to find myself. I wanted to understand why I could be super happy in one instance and then be completely down the next. I wanted to understand… Continue reading Pursuing P.U.R.P.O.S.E – Pt 2

Passion What are you passionate about? Really sit and think about it. If time and money were not a factor in your life, what would you do? Would you paint; would you sing; would you go from country to country eating different foods? What would you do? For me, I would sit next to a… Continue reading PURSUING P.U.R.P.O.S.E: PT 1

Pursuing PURPOSE: The Preview

“How did you know?” First, I just want to say that God is amazing. In all things give thanks.  I started writing for Queen Media Collective as a way to unapologetically express myself. It’s easy to write in your notes (which is my medium of choice) or even write on a journal. But it’s different… Continue reading Pursuing PURPOSE: The Preview
