My Journey Here in Daytona Beach – Pt. 1

The past 6 months have been so insane, from crazy health issues to financial woes. If you are thinking about moving anywhere, please make sure that it is Yah speaking to you and not just a want you are trying to fulfill. It has been a crazy faith journey since making the leap of faith to move here back in February but to be honest, I would not change it for the world. From being diagnosed with asthma, fibromyalgia, arthritis in my spine, carpel tunnel in both hands, wrists and arms and severe nerve damage from herniated discs and narrowing of the spine. From nearly being evicted, to not knowing when my next meal would come from, to how am I going to put gas in my car? I have never been tested like this before but like I said earlier: I would not change it for the world.

When I came to Daytona Beach, FL for the first time back in August of 2017, I immediately knew that it was home. I just had this huge sense of peace in me that told me this was home. It wasn’t because I had always wanted to live near a beach or because I loved the weather or because of the palm trees or even the island vibe. Sidenote: Anyone who knows me, knows that I am an island girl ALL OF THE WAY. No questions about that one. No, it was because of the peace that I had in my heart and the leading of our Ruach HaKodesh.

I went home after my little vacation and let it go. Didn’t think about it for awhile and then I had dreams of moving to Daytona Beach. I actually had a pastor directly tell me and bless me for moving here to Daytona Beach. So I knew it was YHWH.

And, even in the midst of this horrible, awesome and crazy year, I know that my king, Yeshua, has never left my side. He has always been there. There has been lots of good sprinkled in the bad. I am beyond blessed. Do I plan on living here forever? Probably not. I may even be moving out of the states in the next few years. Who knows. But that is for Yah to determine, not me. For now, my landing spot and resting space is right here in beautiful Daytona Beach, Florida.

Until next time my friends!

Why I went Vegan.


Wow! I can NOT believe it has been nearly a YEAR since I have last blogged. It has been a crazy, insane, awesome journey in the last year but I cannot wait to share a whole bunch of updates with you in the coming updates šŸ˜Š It is going to be amazing. I am writing this on my cell phone, so excuse me if the alignment of this post is TOTALLY off. I mean, it really bothers me when professional text is not properly aligned in the center, do you NOT agree!?

Okay, anyways, enough about my silly little rants! Lol! Let’s get to the whole point of this blog.

So, over the years, I have slowly (and quickly – try to understand that lol) eased into being a total vegan. So, I would say, back in 2012, i went to go eat one of my favorite meals that my mother would always prepare: BBQ chicken with home made mac & cheese. Yum, right!? Well, sadly, for me, it was the total opposite. HUGE SAD FACE! I ate the BBQ chicken and my stomach almost IMMEDIATELY began to get sick and bloated. What!?

Now, before this, I completely stooped eating all types of process and fast foods. It wasn’t the norm for me because my body just could NOT for the life of it, process that junk.
So, back to the AMAZING BBQ Chicken. Yeah, I couldn’t eat it anymore. Death to the BBQ chicken. At this point, I hadn’t cut out dairy, fish or egg products out of my diet, but I knew meat was soon to be a thing of the past.

Fast forward to when I move out on my own.

Okay, yall know meat is expensive, so that was a rare treat for me. It made it easy not to want meat.

I tried to go totally vegan at this point (2013-2014) but bless my silly, beautiful heart, I had no knowledge on how to PROPERLY be a vegan and still get the nutrients that I needed from a plant based diet, so that epically failed.

Now, I have never been a sausage, bacon or ham lover. Nor have I really cared for egg products.

Fast forward to 2016-2017. This is when I made my official switch to being a vegan. I could no longer tolerate any meats, dairy or egg products. I mean, my stomach just cannot PROCESS them. I get sick and bloated.

2018, I am now totally a vegan and I am loving it. I can tell when something isnt vegan now and I can taste the difference. It is so easy to tell now. Occassionally I do eat non vegan but I usually prepare my body by detoxing before and after and pay the price of not eating vegan. It can be tricky sometimes.

And, just a side note:

Being vegan wasn’t exactly my choice, it just happened over time. I wish that I did not have to be vegan but to be honest, I like having a plant based diet because it has forced me to become a lot healthier. I feel less clogged and a lot more refreshed. Now, working out, on the other hand, is a different story lol. I need to get back into that and then I will feel more complete.

Well, that is my story and journey to choosing a plant based diet. I hope this clears up any questions that anyone might have.

Next Blog: What I eat to get proteins and cure my meat cravings along with some brands that I consistently eat.

Blessings, love & Shalom to everyone.

Changes to this Blog!

I know that I just recently made changes to this blog but I have been dealing with health issues in the last 6 months so I need to revamp the whole thing. If you look at my previous blog post for March, you will see the topics that I want to focus on now, including day in the life of myself. YHWH will always remain the center and owner of this blog, I am just His vessel (sometimes unwilling, I will be honest) accomplishing His purposes here on earth. I promise I will make it a priority to become more active on here and on YouTube. So, many more amazing posts to come in the coming days, weeks, months and years.

Blessings & Shalom,

Freedom Dancerss.
