🌴Tiny Islands

I’m in the process of writing two books.

One is about my healing journey with my daughter Sarina.

The other about my 365 Tiny Island 🏝.

I know how it feels to give 24/7. Don’t give up on your life. You cannot give without recieing.

My tiny Islands safe my life.

Tiny Islands are mini-retreats I hop on during the day. They let me pause and nourish my soul.

They gift us with awareness breaks to allow time for self-care. Self-care delivers self-love.
