Over the summer, I took a much needed vacation to San Destin, Florida. While away from the office for about a week was sort of scary but it was definitely long overdue. The beaches were absolutely stunning and the white sands were a dream.

Seeing different parts of the world can be therapeutic and refreshing to the mind. Our own cultures are important however, we must all take the initiative to understand how others live in order to build unity worldwide. Exploring brings about a new level of knowledge and wisdom.

It’s also imperative to spend these rare occasions with the  ones you love. Who knows, maybe a getaway will bring new friends and distant family into your life as well. I truly enjoyed the natives of San Destin. They were laid back and knew a thing or two about having fun. Which is what I’d been missing for a very long time. Take a look at the gorgeous photos I captured while there.

Taking care of the mind, body and soul is the new wealth and I’m so in love with it. I would encourage everyone to focus on these important aspects of your lives and then everything else. What I learned recently is, you can’t possibly take care of anyone else until you take care of yourself first and foremost. If you are a giver and an empath like myself, it will be hard no doubt but it must be done regardless. The ones who are in your lives should always be super encouraging of your new self-care routine and if they’re not then it may not be real love. Go out and enjoy life and be happy. It’s up to you.
