Through the rain.

Today, it poured like the scene in 'The Notebook.' I got off the subway and contemplated whether I should wait for the rain to calm down before walking home. Na, well just take a stroll through the rain. Upon walking in the rain, I had an epiphany that like is just like that pouring rain. Sometimes you're prepared and sometimes you're not. If you wait too long, you might lose out on an opportunity awaiting you, but if you act too soon you might have a negative outcome  and if you don't act at all, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW!  So, each day I'm learning to take more risks, to try new things, to walk in the rain and not care what anyone else has to say about it.

And, in lieu of the rain, I was reminded of Mariah Carey's song.

The Hype Man.

I come to realize that I am a hype man. The one person that "hypes you up", that gets you excited, the chanter, the cheerer. They are the ones that are there at your lowest moments in life. Friends, I tell you, those are the kinds of people you should keep around.

Today at dance class, I found that hyping myself and people up made things that much funner! Somehow you just get lost in the moment. After class, I walked down Herald Square and for once I didn't have my headphones or phone out. It really helped me to be so grateful for the city that I live in. I'm such a speck in this world and somehow my voice as well as yours matters just as equally. So, I guess I'm saying is even with all the noise, lights,clutter and people you can still manage to grateful, to be at piece.You may not be where you want to be right now, but somehow life has a way of happening. Keep at it  because eventually the little details add up and make that puzzle look so much clearer.

In sum, the possibilities are endless with  a hype man.

Just Start. Just Do It.

                                          Just START #Exercising.  No Excuses.  No Procrastinating.  Just START.
As I write this post, this is an area that I too struggle with. Charting uncharted waters is always a daunting task especially when you have no idea where it will lead you or what exactly you are looking for in the current moment. I say to you friends ' just start!' Not only start, but start TODAY! Tomorrow was never promised to you. Live in the NOW. What will you do to help your future self? Do NOT allow anyone to tell you that you can't when you can. Gain skills,get stronger, create, give.Whatever it is you wanted to start now. Start by writing it down, setting a goal,taking baby steps then celebrating the milestones.

I've posted the video below that has inspired me to do better. So I pose the question to you. What does amazing look like to you?

RoTravels: Things to do Martinique

I recently went to Martinique because I mean, why not?! The flight was dirt cheap $250 round trip through Norweign airlines. Below are some pictures and things that we did and some tidbits of advice. Martinique is a french- speaking island so I highly recommend brushing up on basics.I was able to get by using my barely non existent french, but I am also very good at understanding french just not speaking. In times where you do not know the language use gestures and body language. It works just as well! Do not allow language barriers to deter you from traveling! The weather and beaches were very beautiful and not super populated. I've included some hotels and things to do below!

Key phrases (I've listed pronunciations based off how I would explain it someone else, hope that is easier)
Good morning/ good day-  bon jour
Good evening- bonne soirée (pronounced bon swah)
Thank you- Merci  (pronounced mer- si)
Excuse me - Excusez moi, or Pardonne (if you're trying to get through a crowd)
Excuse me where is- Excusez-moi , où est...
I would like- Je voudrais commander
I would like to go to -Je voudrais aller à
Where is the bathroom?- où est la salle de bain? (pronounced oo- est la sal de bain?)
How much is this? -combien ça coûte (pronounced com-bie sa cou-te?)
Salt- Du sel
Pepper- du poivre
Drink -boisson
