Live your best life.

Generally speaking, everyone has a solid list of characteristics and phrases that they feel accurately defines them as an individual. These seemingly definitive characteristics often control how we think as well as the actions we take in our lives. I am reminded daily of who I am. I’m a Christian, I’m black, I’m a woman, a wife, a sister, an introvert, and in my mid twenties- just to name a few. While giving credit to my relationship with God, the people in my life, and content I choose to surround myself with, these, “reminders,” usually stem from a place of positivity. However, for things I do not choose, the content can often be negative, ignorant, or simply non-inclusive. For this reason, I strongly value my power to choose. I can choose which shows to watch, the food I cook, the books I read, the organizations I support, where I spend my money, and most importantly, the impact I have on the world around me. I choose to be happy, and some days I choose to be sad, I choose to be kind to everyone I meet, I choose to be healthy, and I choose to uplift those around me.

It’s important to recognize and support people who make choices that create positive change. There are endless stories on amazing people uplifting their communities in their own unique way; Jennifer Pierre, the founder of Melanites, has created a line of multicultural dolls for boys to inspire them to think big and be true to themselves, Chris Bentley and Carlos Miller started Live Fresh Palm Beach County as an awesome resource to homeless people in their community, and the ten-year-old motivational speaker, Nyeeam Hudson, is giving inspirational messages on the importance of knowledge and self esteem!

“Create what you wish existed.” -Jennifer Pierre

I’ve chosen a career in public relations to help bring a voice to those who deserve to be heard and to bring positive messages to people who need to hear them. There are so many things I am interested in and the process of narrowing it down to one is going to be an awesome journey. For now, I am a writer, a supporter, and a fashion/health/beauty/animal enthusiast. I plan to work hard every day toward finding the true purpose for my life while enjoying the ride.

I encourage you to think about your recent choices, future choices, and how you spend your time. Really think about what you want out of life, and do a little (or a lot) each day to reach your goals!

  1. It’s awesome that we have the freedom of choice isn’t it? Not only does it dictate how we spend everyday, but how we spend our lives. I recently made the choice to move to Italy, from Miami! A choice that affected my family, friends, etc. but a choice I do not regret. Love how you are using your voice to uplift, motivate, and inspire others. I strive to do the same. Can’t wait to read posts about your move down south! All the best-Estrella

    1. Wow… Moving to another country is so fearless! I’m officially working up to your level of boldness. How did the decision to move to Italy come about (besides the obvious wondrousness)?

      The freedom of choice really is everything. The best feeling is watching a decision I was apprehensive about evolve into something amazing… Sometimes, multiple amazing things!

      I am excited to read about your experiences in Italy as well!

      Best wishes,

      1. Thank you Kait. We came here on vacation last year and loved everything about it. After sitting on the idea of living abroad for months we decided that the best time in our lives to do such a thing is now, while we’re young and able. So here we are. So far it has been an experience and decision I do not regret. Being able to travel and see this world is one of the best gifts I could ever give myself and so I am living each day like it’s my last with hopes to inspire others that break the mold of a 9-5 lifestyle isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s the freedom of choice that we so often take for granted that we often forget we have options.

    1. Thank you, Rachel. I’m new and trying to get into a rhythm on here so your comment made me so happy! I’m loving your page as well, & definitely looking forward to another nutrition talk Tuesday tomorrow [my favorite bit] 🙂
      Best of luck to you too, but I’m sure this won’t be the last time we speak! -Kait
