  • I told myself I won't be emotional on take off as I fly out to celebrate TJD turning 4, to a place I've always dreamt of going... I realized then that this 'feelings' part of me is exactly who I am, with full transparency. It would have been ugly not to have emotions anyway. 
I'll always be that girl who turned her passion that she strongly believed in, into a business in which today, makes me more alive than I ever was. 
I'll always be the girl who sometimes speaks before she thinks and the one who will always survive from everything despite how much time it could take me to get there. 
TJD turns 4. 
Im lucky to have known what I wanted to do with my life since the 7th grade. Despite the journey that had me battling my way through, I always knew one thing, I knew what I wanted, I always did. 
I'll always do. 
That made my faith in chasing my dreams, without anyone stopping me, stronger. 
The best part of this year is launching @travel4apurpose Another long time dream turning into reality. 
The one thing I know for sure is that I couldn't have gotten this far without some of the most inspiring people in my life that stuck to me not only at my best, but most of all at my worst. When you have those kind of people, wether it's one or ten, you drop everything for them...It's what the entire world is after, isn't it?
You drop the games, you drop the ego and you stick together and you inspire and... you love. Because when you hang on to them, you celebrate together & they make your whole success and dreams worth every minute of it. #TJDTurns4
