The Mountains That Made Me | My First Short Doc

The Mountains That Made Me | My First Short Doc

So…I’ve been SO nervous to share this, but a friend at #mastHERclass, an event this past weekend, encouraged me to do it. So here it is!

This project is SO close to my heart. It took a lot of blood, sweat, tears and love to make it happen. It’s my baby. It encapsulates everything I want to gift to the world as far as creating films and content. The purpose of everything I do is to affirm, heal, and uplift black women and girls, empowering them to become their best selves and live their best lives! This journey, just like anything else in life, has not been without its challenges.

How Mindfulness Meditation Changed My Life

How Mindfulness Meditation Changed My Life

For the past several months, I’ve been trying to establish a daily routine that will help me get more done, nurture my soul and maximize my time.

In real life, though, the snooze button became my best friend when the alarm went off every morning, making it a struggle to wake up at the same time every day. I also stayed up late, binge watching whatever was on Netflix or Hulu, trying to fill some type of void that I couldn’t explain. Continue reading “How Mindfulness Meditation Changed My Life”
