Strutting Into Spring Like …

Now that the new season, Sprinter, Spring and Winter, is trying to gradually fade away, we can finally look forward to enjoying Spring.  I can’t lie, though, I thought Winter was never going to leave.  Still, once the groundhog sees his shadow, that should only mean six more weeks of Winter, not ten! All I know is that Mother Nature has a strange sense of humor! I didn’t think the resurgence of Winter was funny one bit!

Nevertheless, Spring is definitely trying to push through.  It’s time for us to get excited about all the pretty things that Springtime brings.  During this season, the flowers are the prettiest and the grass starts to turn evergreen.  Blondes are in and brunettes are out!

Likewise, Spring is the best season by far because it symbolizes so much.  It is during this time of growth and change that we tend to experience the most development.  We plant flowers in Spring so that they can bloom by Summer.   The temperature changes and darkness turns to light.  Women tend to change their hairstyles, wardrobes and attitudes over the course of the season.  Therefore, this is the perfect time to evaluate the things that you might want to explore that can aid expansion and personal development.

Each year I try to encourage myself to do things that I’ve never done before, but I tend to create the list around my travel plans.  However, this time I’ve decided to change my list and tailor it specifically for this season.  The beauty of Spring offers so many wonderful and adventurous opportunities to be fearless.  After watching Beyonce’ perform at Coachella, I believe I need to just step it up! Boy has she inspired me!

In honor of fearless women around the globe, I have created my Spring Bucket List of things that are outside of my norm.  Here are just a few things that I will be attempting this Spring:

  1. Attend a Houston Astros game. (I live in Texas and have never been into baseball so why not go see the World Champions?)
  2. Go horseback riding. Again, horses are all over Texas yet I haven’t ridden a horse since I was a kid. Why not?
  3. Take a road trip at least 5-6 hours away for the weekend.  I already have a destination in mind so stay tuned.

These are my top three things on my Spring Bucket List.  I have given myself until June to get it done.  By then it will be time for my Summer Bucket List.  What are you doing to step outside the box and live outside of your comfort zones? Share some of your ideas and plans in the comments below.

 

 

 

BeyChella 2018: Sorry Not Sorry!

Whether you attended Coachella in the flesh or watched Beyonce’s awe-inspiring performance on Youtube, there’s no denying the fact that Bey wasn’t playing games with her performance at the festival.  Not only did the performer make history by becoming the first black woman to headline at Coachella, she also killed by incorporating her feminist and political themes throughout her performances.  Meanwhile, she slayed the stage with her beauty and stylish digs to match.

When you are affectionately called “Queen Bey” and you walk out on stage in Cleopatra costume and you can makes one feel your energy through your presence, then you have successfully proven your grandeur as an artist.  One thing is for certain, two things are for sure, if you don’t walk away from a Beyonce’ show feeling like you should go harder, then you need to check your pulse.  You are obviously not on this planet!

The performance lasted for two hours and it was the most dynamic display of  advancement for the culture by far.  Beyonce’s attention to detail and precise execution of choreography was epic.  She told a story that summarized twenty years of her career and chart topping songs incorporating the sounds of other artists.  She shared the stage with Destiny’s Child, Solange, and her husband, Jay-Z.  Even though the show was not completely about the BeyHive, you still walk away knowing that it is all about Bey!

If you’re a woman that loves music, beauty, culture, and the overall advancement of women, then you need to watch Beyonce’s Coachella 2018 performance.  You will never be prouder of the fact that a wife, mother of three, and winner of many awards showed up and showed out at the festival.  It wasn’t just a win for her; it was a win for all women.  Her performance belied the greatness that we all have within us.  Nevertheless, she continues to prove that one woman can be fierce and unapologetically great and create her own rules. There is no reason to be sorry for that…..
