Hey and welcome back to another post brought to you by takemetotheheights.com.
I hope you all are well. This week’s blog post is special in the sense that I am manifesting all that I’ve set my eyes on since FOREVER! For starters, I am in California writing this blog post to you guys. If y’all only knew how much it took for me to get to this point in traveling; in my life, let alone going on my first solo trip, y’all would understand.
The Lordt only knows how much I needed to take this time being on break from work to go away. I’ve been holding on to so many emotions, that the moment I landed I felt a sense of relief. I felt as if I regained my independence but most importantly I felt like I got me back.
For some time now, I felt indifferent about myself and the ways in which I would handle certain situations in my life (I thought I had the answers but my name ain’t Sway!)
As a result of that feeling, I’ve decided to touch on intentions for this blog post. Before you go and look up the word INTENTION, it’s basically a cooler way of saying purpose (depending on the context of what you’re saying.)
So long and behold. Here I am in California thinking about living with intention. I realized there were numerous occasions in which my life full circled and I was constantly reminded of my purpose.
I initially set out to do all the basic tourist attractions, but after visiting Venice Beach, it dawned on me that I’m on this trip for me and no one else. I have the power to truly go anywhere I wanted and I wouldn’t be pressed about it.
It’s truly an amazing feeling to have and I feel blessed in knowing I have that agency in my life. This new surge of power I’ve been feeling has inspired me to talk to you guys in other capacities aside from takemetotheheights.com.
In the past, I didn’t feel I had that power within myself.
I handed my power off to the wrong people/relationships I’ve dealt with.
This new wave of agency/ownership has allowed me to have an incredibly different outlook on life. Who would’ve thought in my 27 years of life I would be in a place where I can acknowledge that?! Accountability is everything and then some y’all!
But on a more serious note, I know I have more work to do in terms of putting in the time to continue to heal, as well as truly and wholeheartedly continue to put my feelings on the forefront.
Before I close out tonight’s blog post, I decided to share my footage of Venice Beach down below!

As always, please be sure to leave me your thoughts and comments. Let me know if you’ve visited California or are from there!
Until next blog post,
