It has been one hell of a decade. Started off being homeless, depressed and suicidal. Now, I don’t even know that girl anymore. In a nutshell, I have had some loooooow moments, but I have also been immensely blessed this past decade.
It has been about finding fulfilment, joy, peace, and being in alignment with my purpose. I spent these past few years trying to evolve, reinvent myself, and transcend.
In fact, it has been a rollercoaster ride. I have learned to detach myself from and learn to love from a distance some people that I thought I could never live without, but I have also gained some phenomenal and supportive friends and extended family.
I have had to let go of some fallacies, thought processes and behavioural patterns that were holding me back. For a long time, I was living my life in a state of cognitive dissonance. I was not living in accordance of who I really wanted to be.
More importantly, this decade, I got to know God like I have never known Him. In moments of disappointment and discouragement, I literally nurtured and spoke life, using God’s words, unto myself.
I am immensely thankful for God’s grace, protection and blessings. Without God’s guidance and love, I would not have been able to make through this decade.
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”― Friedrich Nietzsche
Well, there is a constant upbeat melody playing in my head, so I am always dancing (Literally). In other words, I am a big ball of energy most of the time, and I live for prodiguous moments I can’t put into words.
I am a spiritual and adventurous woman with endless supply of energy and also an amateur at many things, dancing, writing, cooking, filmmaking, etc… I also have an insatiable thirst for learning, traveling, meeting new people and listening to their stories with gratitude, respect and attention.
I was born and raised in Haiti but became a nomad at 15, when I moved to USA, an experience that changed my sense of who I am as an individual. Consequently, I am now navigating through life independently in Europe. I like to put myself in new and intriguing places, and activate my brain in new ways through interesting and meaningful conversations with others.
I have spiritual outlook about everything. I also firmly believe that God created me to be a valuable addition to mankind, to use my time, talents and energy to serve others and affect their lives positively. This is what drives my daily efforts. I am still learning how to be useful, but in the process, I want to share with you the collection of outrageous stories that is my life.
Let’s journey together!!!
