Just be confident. Believe in yourself. Don't let society's dogmatic beliefs rule your life. YOU ARE A POWERFUL CREATOR. You have the right to be here and speak your mind just as much as anyone else. You are a person with unique talents, beauty and a voice that are worth sharing. Allow yourself to live a life that feels fulfilling to you, even if that means you have to step out of your comfort zone more often. Don't be afraid to fail. Don't be afraid to change your course. WE ALL FAIL. That's how we learn.

And a lot has happened in one year. In 2015, I decided to take my health in my own hands and it's been the best decision I ever made. My goal for 2016? Helping other people who are struggling with their health so they can be their best self.

Over the past month, I have done a couple of things to support my body to let go of toxins. I have had four colonic sessions in one month time, and as my body started to release toxins, I supported my skin by increasing my pre- and probiotic intake, hydrating, alkalizing, resting, sweating, exfoliating, earthing and taking salt baths.
