    latianna's world blog post

    Such an important phrase that may shock you to hear. I made this because I do not want you to feel good about it. To be offended or uncomfortable is a great thing, because it requires you to reflect and make changes that will build you, or destroy you. I hope this video cuts to the core of you to truly reflect and see what you need to let go in your life and move forward. Only then will you be able to experience true freedom, authentic identity, blessings and fulfill life purpose. Time to believe in yourself. Be inspired by this message. Any thoughts?

    ได้อย่างเสียอย่าง (dai yang sia yang) Translation: You have to lose something to get another thing. Meaning: You can’t make an omelette without breaking any eggs Thailand’s values of honor and hospitality led me to tears. I wondered, “How can a nation that does not have mental health budget give so much to us?” It felt undeserving to receive the love and compassion when I traveled to Thailand to study abroad program from California State University Long Beach.

    Rompin’ My Way to Sophie’s Place

    Hello World, So last year, my sister wanted to meet up for brunch and drinks to discuss wedding planning (she finally passed into wifey-hood this past May). She was on a mission as she insisted on going to Redondo Beach, California for her favorite place to eat.   It was a Saturday morning, and I was definitely wanting to stay in bed.
