I made it to Marrakech! It was an 18-hour trip from San Diego with stops in Dallas and Madrid.
It’s my first time here and let me tell you…this city has a LOT going on.
I slept most of my first day, then went out to eat couscous and explore the souk (huge market). Though I’ve been to many markets around the world, I have never seen anything like it.
Yes, they have all manner of street food, clothes, leather but also snake charmers, little monkeys and sheep just hanging out everywhere. Definitely a sight to see. There are hundreds of vendors and they are super aggressive. I must have said “no” a thousand times to fake tour guides and men calling out “sister” from their shops. I’m actually surprised I didn’t get lost, but there are a ton of landmarks to guide the way if you pay attention.
I’m loving my villa, enjoying the food and excited about my tour and hammam/massage tomorrow!

Whenever I book a trip to a place on my “travel bucket list,” I feel so grateful because my life wasn’t always this way.
My mindset had to shift so that I could start saying YES to myself and ALL my desires, not just the ones I thought were “realistic.”
Although my years of diving deep into personal development and doing a ton of inner work helped, the biggest factor that transformed my life was simply making a DECISION.
I decided to give myself permission to do whatever I wanted with my life.
Along with that decision was a promise to myself – that I would never let anyone or anything stop me.
Here’s what I learned:
When a woman is truly determined to get something, she WILL get it!
And yes, being the Queen that she is…she will not use her family or anything else as an excuse for why she can’t have what she wants.
She WILL find a way to bring her kids and her hubby along for the journey, if need be. Point blank, end of story.
Nothing and I mean NOTHING can stop a black woman who has MADE UP HER MIND.
No matter what you’ve experienced in the past, today you can make up your mind and decide that:
You will no longer tolerate lies and disrespect.
You will no longer neglect your own self-care.
You will no longer ignore your intuition.
You will no longer put everyone else’s needs above your own.
You will no longer delay your own happiness.
You will no longer allow fear to control your life.
You will no longer let other people hold you back.
If you truly want to change your life, you have to make up your mind.
It’s the only way to liberate yourself and finally get free.
