Make this Summer Memorable Black Women, Live Your Best Life!

Depending on who you ask, “Living your best life” by definition will vary. I suggest that “living your best life”, would be stepping out of your comfort zone, embarking on new journeys, some spontaneity, achievement, and service. Summer season poses for great a time to partake in endeavors presenting these opportunities.

Break away from playing it safe, try a new hairstyle or color, and wear that bright orange lipstick and magenta nail polish. Try different cuisines and explore a culture outside of your own. Talk to someone you usually wouldn’t, try optimism over pessimism.

Start a hobby that nurtures your innate talents. Create a lifestyle change of clean eating and regular physical activity. Begin a beauty regimen, and set some fitness goals. Take a couple of classes as an investment for lucrative entrepreneurship possibilities.

Spice it up a bit with a random weekend getaway to a nearby yet far out city. It helps to get out of town for a few days and regroup from the hustle of your daily routines. Knock off a few adventures from your bucket list; go rock climbing, repelling, zip lining, or scuba diving. Hop on that motorbike and take that helicopter ride.

Summer is indicative of break or vacation away from school studies and employment. Hence a freeing of a significant amount of time typically occupied during the fall, winter, and spring months. This is optimum for acts of service to your community and organizations servicing those in need. Build your resume with internships and volunteer work. Attend summer camps geared towards your field be it science and technology, business, or athleticism.

This is the season where flowers are blooming, fruit is ripening, and melanin is shining!

A' cylo ( ˈā/ˈsil/ lō) – “I am a writer with a passion for using my voice to speak on the issues many refuse. My hobbies include writing, dancing, and gardening. A fan of all shades of blue; with a slight addiction to popcorn, chips and salsa. I teach but more importantly I learn; continuously. Did I mention I'm a writer; and I'm serious about my content?!”
