Today marks Twenty Two Two's in this life of mine. As you know I have been doing a lot of breathing exercises, meditation, yoga and reflecting, looking inward to find peace in the present. We all go through our ups and downs, struggle with the past and worry about the future but when we lose sight of now, we forget to appreciate the things we do have. I am so thankful for another year, this last one was tough mentally but the struggle opened my eyes up wide. I feel like 44 is going to be a great year, family is solid, we lots of things in the works and best of all I'm building @chefforhigher with my best friend @stephaniesalman πŸ„πŸ½πŸ€™πŸΌπŸ’¨πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ‚#TwentyTwoTwos

Let me say thank you to everyone who responded to my last post, shot me a text and/or called me, your positive vibe is appreciated πŸ™πŸΌ Since sharing my current state has opened up a dialogue with my friends who relate, I figure I should continue to share my journey with the hopes it can help someone else know they're not alone. I have started each morning with breathing (10 minutes), guided meditation (20 minutes and 9 minutes) and ending with Headspace (10 minutes). Though my mind still races and I struggle to not be distracted I can already see a difference in my attitude, stress level and even physical (we create so much neck and back pain through out subconscious). One of my biggest struggles is focus, organizing all of the thoughts and ideas that run through my head, I can feel how breathing can help with this, anyone have any suggestions and/or exercises to help you would like to share? #Meditation #Breathing

Lately I have been struggling with anxiety, cluttering my mind with negative thoughts. Busying myself with minutiae instead of taking those uncomfortable steps that I need to create success in life. We, especially men, don't like to talk about these feelings of doubt, insecurity and worry cause we're concerned it makes us look weak. We feel that most of our peers won't relate when in actuality they may be feeling just like you do. I believe the weaker person cannot acknowledge these feelings, bring them to the frontal lobe and confront them head on.
We usually talk physical, post pictures about going to the gym and exercising, but just as much as we need that we need mental health as well. The more I talk about it to my peers, the more I find more of us struggle than I thought. Just knowing others do provides relief and that is part of why I am writing this now, to say I deal with anxiety and I am going to face it head on, declutter my mind and not allow my subconscious to rule. After Prodigy passed and hearing the words of everyone who spoke at his memorial, TIME was what each addressed. i want to make sure I spend my time here properly, do what I was put on this planet to accomplish and spend as much time with family, kids and friends as possible.

Today, July 1st, I start with breathing (10 minutes) and guided meditation (20 minutes) and will continue to build up on it one day at a time πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ€™πŸΌ

This morning was our chance to see P, say our goodbyes and celebrate his life with his family and friends. The room was filled with so many people whose lives you touched, all showing their love, admiration and respect. The words by loved ones, IMD, family and artists was touching, the Honorable Minister Farrakhan said it best "Prodigy is a rapper's rapper." You inspired so many through your strength in life and wisdom in words and everyone you touched will make sure that you live on forever! Rest in Power PπŸ€™πŸΌ πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

We just reconnected and exchanged info last month so we could catch up, I was planning to ask you to host my birthday party. I never told you but being Mobb Deeps road manager during the Infamous album is something I hold dear to my heart. 21 years old, barely 145 lbs and still wet behind the ears but you guys took me on the road and let me earn my stripes. Remember when you and Hav stole those steak knives from the restaurant in Ohio and I thought we'd get in trouble then at the show they ran Biggie off the stage, and you said "see, that's why." Looking back I learned so much during that time on the road cause I had to figure everything out in real time. I guess what I really want to say is THANK YOU. #RestInPower #HNIC "Life is a gamble, we scramble for money
I might crack a smile but ain't a damn thing funny"

These guys @kws.ie @wynnsalmanarts . Wouldn't be #fathersday without them

Lolo, ama and anak on Father's Day waaaaaaaaaay back. πŸ™πŸΌ#imstillholdingtomyhairlinetho #happyfathersday

This man (@supermenschshep) right here was on my bucket list since we started this @chefforhigher journey. His work with chef's like Emeril Lagasse inspired a lot of ideas and opened my eyes to opportunities we could create through food. Getting to meet him was awesome but him telling me he was in the audience and liked the cannabis panel at @infatuation @eeeeeatscon was the highlight of the day. I was blessed to speak with him for a few minutes but I had so much to ask, I wish we had more time. Unfortunately I didn't get to exchange information but the universe connected us once and I'm confident if I put it out there we will meet again soon πŸ™πŸΌπŸ”ŒπŸ“·: @kws.ie #SupermenschShep #DoYouFlyPrivate #chefforhigher #BucketList

#TBT to my days as the Lifestyle Editor of @thesource #FlavorsoftheMonth πŸ™πŸΌ @denycelawton for posting πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ #Repost @denycelawton ・・・

This time last year, I'm at a friends house for a nice gathering in NYC. I see this guy and I tell my guest "I know that guy but I can't remember how or why but I KNOW his name is Hawaiin Mike. She tries to help jog my memory but nope! Couldn't figure it out. At some point, we all engage in a group conversation and I ask if his name is such and he says yes.

Long story short, for the past year, he and I have been trying to figure out how and why we know one another. Music industry ties is a big possibility, but still nothing no matter names or places we drop to one another lol.
Fast forward 2 weeks ago, my niece asks me how I started modeling & I show her my modeling portfolio. Some of my first fashion magazine spreads and this one spread in #TheSourceMagazine from 2000. I was a baby! Anyhow, I tell her the story of how I was working at a Record Label doing PR in NYC at the time, and took our label artists to their magazine shoot when this guy asks me if I wanted to model. I said sure and lord and behold, he put me in the men's gear our artists were supposed to wear instead of them LOL, .

I looked at the shoot coordinator / stylist name on the tear sheet and who does it say???? Yep ... zoom in and see for yourself lol... this man @HWMK aka @ChefForHigher!! One of my first real modeling / magazine spreads... got a nice check for it too lol... thank you Mike, one of the coolest things I got to do when I was a baby! 😁

To my rock, the woman that drives me to greatness, HAPPY BIRTHDAY @stephanie.salman!!! I love you more than you will ever know, let's ride this life out til the wheels fall off! I'll see you tomorrow 😘😍😎
