    West Indian Manatees in Florida

    A Warm Florida Manatees Welcome! This Sunday’s motivation is a Travel Motivation. You may even call it a ‘try something new motivation’. Some things in life are once in a lifetime and so I want to encourage you to try something new, something that you may only get to see or do once a year. In encouraging you to take that action, I will be telling you about my once a year experience. So, recently my partner and I visited the Manatee Lagoon in Florida. This was such a good experience for us because we love nature, we love to be outdoors and even more, we love animals. In this…

    Low-Stress Last Minute Gift Ideas for Him, Him and Him.

    So, its December 17th and if you are like me then it means you still haven’t done Christmas shopping as yet.

I also never felt like I was at a disadvantage. You see, I grew up in the Caribbean and while for some Caribbean people Christmas is a “huge deal” for others…
