6 years ago today was my junior recital at Rowan University! #throwback
As I’m preparing for a concert here in New York tonight I came across this memory on Facebook. This recital was huge for me, because I had just changed my major to classical guitar performance.
At the time I definitely didn’t feel like I’d ever be good enough to be a professional performer, but I knew I was willing to work really really hard for it every day.
6 years later I feel like I’ve come a long way and still have a long way to go, but I’m grateful that my life can be spent on this path!

The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence. Self confidence is a super power. Once you start to believe in yourself, good things starts happening. You were born to be real, not to be perfect. #blessed#grateful#thankful#emkmotivator
Inquiry is interdisciplinary. These sixth grade scientists are asking profound questions about the world. They also taught me how to count to six in Vietnamese. Grateful for my time learning with student and teacher leaders in Hanoi. #inquiry#globaleducation#grateful#teaching#science
Today am grateful for my salvation.
I'm thankful for the unexplainable and undeserving love of God. Knowing that there's nothing I could ever do that would make him love me any less is just amazing🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Abundance is a mindset.
There are people who have FAR LESS than we've had on our "hardest day", and yet, they are happier and more content than we'll ever be. *
"Stuff" doesn't bring happiness,
Money doesn't bring security, feeling safe does.
Eating whatever you want all the time isn't a privilege, being healthy is.
Living beyond your means just to "appear" successful will ruin your future.
The fastest and hardest way to learn this is to lose everything.
Lose your job and very quickly you'll find out who and what really brings abundance into your life.
It can literally happy any day to any one!

I just want you to know
I have no regrets
I loved you
and I'm glad I met you
I'm grateful for the journey we had,
even if it wasn't meant to last forever.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’ll always believe Frozen will speak if you let it. ❄️ 🎶Show yourself
I'm dying to meet you
It's your turn
Are you the one I've been looking for
All of my life?
I'm ready to learn
I've never felt so certain
All my life I've been torn
But I'm here for a reason
Could it be the reason I was born?
I have always been so different
Normal rules did not apply
Is this the day?
Are you the way
I finally find out why?
A new Journey which I am excited about and ready to tackle with full force💯💯💯 Love y’all and see everyone at the top💜💜💜

My trip back to my home land Holland, aka The Netherlands, is coming to an end.🇳🇱🥳
Yes I’m proud and grateful and appreciate to be a Dutchy.🇳🇱
But I’m so craving my chosen home country America.🇺🇸
From the minute I saw American shows on TV growing up in Holland, I knew, that’s where I wanted to end up.
It wasn’t an easy journey but it was so worth it.
I wouldn’t have done anything differently.
Of course I do miss my sweet family back in Holland but virtually we stay in touch as much as we like.💻☎️ If you don’t like where you are, move, you are not a tree.🌴

Today, I honour my friends and family that have made my life worthwhile and in abundance of moments of positivity and laughter.
The essential reason why I try to study the technique of videography was to give my friends a platform of alacrity and to show to the world, the empowering appreciation and encouragement that networking can provide.
We, as humans, have an innate need to understand and to socialise with other people and in turn, we too, seek to be understood as well.
Whilst we all have our mundane,prosaic moments in our lives, it is in these moments that I reflect and make assertions as to how fortuitous we all are to have each other in our lives and my friends and family are one that I truly distinguish today.
For it is them that I continue to flourish and through their utmost guidance and support, I can only aspire to reciprocate the love as well.
If you’re reading this, know that in this world of infinite opportunities and infinite possibilities, you and I have connected and irrespective of time and mannerisms in which we communicate, you have touched upon me, your true self and this I truly appreciate.
Our time in this world is temporary and so, I seek to create memories in honour of everyone who I am absolutely blessed to be with me, through every step and through every journey.
May you all be blessed.
