Hi my Loves!
Happy Sunday, as you’ve heard already this is my new series: Soul Sundays. Every Sunday I’ll share some music from yours truly, words of wisdom, inspiration and all things good for the soul. For many of us Sundays are the days to spend with God, sports, family etc… Sometimes, during the hustle and bustle of our lives, we often times forget what truly matters and what’s important to us. We only have one life and we shouldn’t let it pass us by. Tomorrow is never promised, this is the time to make it count. We only have one life, we must live it to the fullest. Love to the fullest and spread the light. Love is a pretty powerful thing, something that shouldn’t be taken for granted or lightly. Love wholeheartedly and unconditionally. Give love to those, deserving of your love. But most importantly love yourself first. Sometimes we forget or don’t love ourselves enough. Love the shit out of yourself and life. When you learn to love yourself, you open the possibility and your heart to be loved. Giving love and being loved is truly something special and a gift.
Loving ourselves and what’s important to us is truly something you can’t take for granted. Don’t give up on something that’s important to you, no matter. Whether it’s your career goals, yourself, a special person in your life, family, no matter what it is, keep spreading the love, spread good vibes, spread kindness and goodness to everything. What you put out into the universe is what will be returned to you. Keep growing, keep evolving and keep the love flowing my loves.
Some words of wisdom, inspiration and more to guide you through your day and week.
On Wings of Love
The priceless gift of life is love,
For with the help of God above
Love can change the human race
And make this world a better place
For love dissolves all hate and fear
And makes our vision bright and clear
So we can see and rise above
Our pettiness on wings of love
God is good, God is Love
Have Faith and Believe
Stay positive and Don’t give up Hope
There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world
The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in
At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet
The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give enough of is love
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead
The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart
Continue to spread goodness, spread the love and good vibes always. Love yourself in every way possible. When you love yourself, you welcome the chance of someone loving you and your beautiful soul. Keep vibrating higher and love that beautiful soul of yours and never let anyone take that away from you. Spread love to others, even if they don’t deserve it, it’s ok. Love anyways, why? Because everyone deserves to be loved, no matter big or small. Love is love, and love is a beautiful thing. My hope for you all is to practice self love, learn to love, respect love, spread goodness, kindness and be gentle and kind to your soul always my loves. Have a beautiful Sunday!
Here’s me singing some soulful music for this Soul Sunday, enjoy!
As always, thanks for reading, following along and supporting my journey!
Hakan Akkaya presented his runway collection on Day 2 of NYFW. I didn’t know what to expect at all. I was fully intrigued and waited with anticipation with other influencers, tastemakers and celebrities who attend the show. The anticipation and excitement always gets me super pumped for any show at NYFW. The show was not only fierce it was electrifying. From the music to the fierce and edgy models you craved for more. Both men and women rocked the runway in mixed metallic patterns paired with the all black ensemble. The entire collection was very rocker, chic and eccentric.
It was interesting to see designers express their political stances through visual interpretation by way of their collections. You couldn’t help but notice the distinct political undertones seen on the runway that day. Akkaya and his collection spoke volumes and many truths in some of his pieces shown that day. It was both enlightening and liberating!
The show was not only visually stimulating, contagious but inspiring without question. The background music set the tone for the show with its edgy remixes which complimented the entire collection and vibe. This was definitely a crowd pleaser ending with a standing ovation. I couldn’t stop raving about this show, as did many NYFW attendees.
Congrats to the Turkish designer, bravo!

In light of recent events in the world, I thought to write this post. And with it being Palm Sunday and the Lenten Season I feel it’s only fitting. It’s a time for sacrifice, a time to give thanks, a time to reflect, to give hope and love to one another. I want this post to serve as a means for inspiration, a means for hope, and to show love to everyone in the world.
I wouldn’t call myself super super religious, but I’m a worshiper and believer in my own right as a Catholic . And with today being Palm Sunday, this would be a great post to speak about hope, love, sacrifice and a time to give thanks. I thought it was very fitting for this to air on television with it being Palm Sunday after all. After watching the modern day take of The Passion, it made me think about a lot of things, especially what’s currently going on in the world today. Even if your not religious or even Catholic, I hope this post can speak to you and inspire you.
This is a great story of the all mighty and creator of the universe– Jesus Christ. Tyler Perry takes us on a journey through New Orleans, the backdrop for this musical event. Tyler Perry narrates and tells us the story of Jesus Christ and his followers has he spreads his word making his most ultimate sacrifice for all humanity, offering salvation for all those who believe. A story about betrayal, friendship, hope, sacrifice and forgiveness something that speaks to us all. But a story about love in it’s truest form.
“New Orleans, an iconic city in itself. Filled with so much culture and history similar to that of Jerusalem so it seemed fitting to place this modern day version of “The Passion” in a city like that of New Orleans. This city too, prevailed and rose again after the affects of Hurricane Katrina. Leaving many homeless, hungry and in a state of despair. But just like Jesus, the city rose, prevailed, and once again became restored. While the community and many others came together to help rebuild. Redefining, reflecting and reminding themselves what New Orleans stood for . Realizing that giving them hope, love and the resources to rebuild up New Orleans like how it was before. And now, the people of New Orleans stand proud, with their hearts filled with hope and love, a true inspiration in itself. This is the true message and sacrifice that Jesus was showed and was trying to spread, showing that ‘Love can truly move mountains,” which is what the people of New Orleans invoked when trying to rebuild and regain their lives after this natural disaster.
The music incorporated in “The Passion” were hit songs from today that fit well with each scene in this modern rendition. The music made you feel the words and realize the importance of God’s word. I don’t know about you I felt the love and the yearning for hope that evening, and for the world. The show in it’s entirety, I thought was truly remarkable and the message and story is still alive, and well-known even today. If you haven’t seen this or heard of the story, it’s truly powerful, it’s message is a true testament of the truly meaning of Love, sacrifice, hope, and forgiveness. And I recommend it to everyone.
I also enjoyed the diverse cast coming together in this compelling and empowering event. I hope that after you see this post and if you watch “The Passion” I hope it can inspire and empower you. I hope that it will shed some light of purpose and hope for you, the future, and that we can overcome anything when you try and seek everything in life with love, passion, hope, and more. Christians during this time of Lent, we learn to sacrifice, show compassion, listen to the words of God through worship and remember what he did for us. Jesus Christ showed us great LOVE by sacrificing himself for us. That is the truest form of love anyone can show the world.
” When will the hate end?” ” When will we all come together, and realize that love and peace is more important and hate is just a means for continued turmoil and tragedy… ” But what can we all learn from this?In relations to recent events, the country Belgium, specifically Brussels was attacked and many were hurt, and left for dead during this tragedy. My question is, And it’s not just Brussels who have endured such attacks, we all feel the effects of this tragedy. And not to long ago, Paris was attacked and many died as well. Just like Paris, I know that through the help of all of us, sending our prayers and thoughts to Brussel, they too, will rise and prevail through all this. I hope we can all learn something from Jesus Christ and his sacrifices and the love he showed us. He died for us, for our sins, and he rose again. That is the truest form of LOVE one could do for all humanity. We need to practice this in our society, and show more love and compassion for others. And not turn to hate, or discrimination for others. This is the time for hope, this is the time for peace. Just like Jesus did with his disciples he spread love, he gave them hope, he made them realize that peace will come again. Love can move mountains and we can/will rise and prevail.
We don’t need to die to show our sacrifices, but we need to lean towards peace and love rather than hate. We need to show and spread more love, give hope and spread peace throughout the world. Maybe one day, our country will be rid of the hate, and maybe just maybe we will live in a loving and peaceful world that is safe for our children and the rest of the world. This maybe wishful thinking and me and many wanting to live in a dream world, but we can only hope for a better tomorrow for all.
I hope everyone had a great Easter! I hope this post enlightened and inspired you to do better not just for yourself but for the greater humanity. Wishing you all an abundance of Love, Light, Happiness, Peace, Hope, and Blessings for today and the future.
**If you didn’t catch the live show of The Passion, you can watch it now available on Hulu, or on the Fox App on your Apple TV or Roku device.
