A tribute to my younger, lonelier, misguided self.
Hi there and welcome!
I spend a lot of time thinking about the human experience, relationships, and why people do what they do. My brain is pretty much always on unless I’m forcefully trying to turn it off via meditation, yoga or another kind of exercise. This involuntary habit of constantly thinking and feeling (and often ruminating) has led to my interest in psychology and self-development.
What makes a person who they are?
Why do we do the things we do?
How can we succeed in interpersonal relationships?
How can we live a more connected and joyful life?
These are the questions that I often ponder and what my blog posts attempt to answer.
I was born in DC and grew up in Maryland. The product of a Nigerian household with an older sister and a single immigrant mother. I went to school in New York and now I currently (since Fall 2017) reside in Los Angeles so that I can fully go after my dreams of pursuing my creative passions!
I am a writer, thinker, dreamer and feeler at my very core but on the surface, I’m just a person trying to figure it all out just like you! I care about my family and friends, love exploring my new city, and have an insatiable craving to learn as much about spiritual growth and personal development as humanly possible. I want to die with zero regrets. This is my journey to living life as aligned with my values as I can manage.
Some topics I enjoy learning about and writing about include: Relationships (Family, Friendship, and Romantic), Spiritual Growth, Emotional Healing, Mind-Body Connection, Healthy Eating & Lifestyle, Productivity, Intuition, Law of Attraction and any and all ways to have more Fun, Meaning, and Connection.
I’m currently pursuing my creative cravings, shoving doubt to the side and adopting the mindset of an adventurer (a la The Alchemist).
I believe that we’re all students in this school of life and that if we pay attention, we can gain the insight necessary to live the life of our dreams. I’m on the path to my dreams and, aside from the physical things I hope to attain, an even bigger part of what I dream to gain is peace, clarity, and purpose as a state of mind. If that sounds like you too, then stick around! I intend to share my learnings and expansion with all of you so that you can also live a more inspired and fulfilling life.
