Every Sunday, I will post a challenge for myself to accomplish and ask that you participate in doing the same. One can take on the challenge for a day during that particular week, the whole week, a month, a year, perhaps it may become something habitual and is forever instilled into your everyday living. Remember friends, the only limits are the ones we create for ourselves. The point is that we TRY because the act of TRYING in and of itself is in fact TRIUMPH. Dares will vary in degrees of “difficulty” and covering anything and everything depending on what inspires me that week. There will be no harm done to oneself and to others, JUST goodness through and through. Oh happy days…
I would love to hear about your experiences of implementing these dares into your daily life, so please feel free to email me your thoughts, feedback and possible dare ideas. Oh and be joyous.

Sunday March 27th 2016♥

The choice is surely up to you my love. Blessed be, one love!
Sunday March 20th 2016♥
I DARE YOU to give up a vice for something NICE!!! Personally, I have decided after 13 years (on and off) to give up smoking cannabis solo and only do it on very rare occasions with friends. I have come to the conclusion that it is no longer serving me and thus I must part ways with this plant and start a new bond with a different plant, the magnificent Moringa Oleifera, also known as the MIRACLE TREE. My desire to transition into the health and wellness industry has sparked my fire to lead a healthier eating habit/lifestyle and getting the munchies is not gonna cut it. My journey has begun, change is constant and I’m excited for this new challenge in my life. May we all proper together!!! Be happy and healthy my loves.

Sunday February 28th 2016♥
Allen DARES YOU to look into someones eyes and smile. It really can be that simple.
Sunday February 21st 2016♥
I DARE YOU to keep that laughter going my love. Even when it feels like your constantly getting hit with blows left, right and center. These are the times that laughter is most important, it will heal your soul and keep your frequency at a higher level. Life is just too beautiful to surrender yourself to the void of negativity that will suck you in and suck you dry of your divine life energy. Just remember you must respect ALL your emotions, let them process and then simply pass like water under a bridge =) Keep smiling sweetness, you are gorgeous inside and out…I love you
Sunday February 14th 2016♥
I DARE YOU to take a leap of faith. In which ever direction your heart yearns to follow, just do it. This will be challenging and it’s gonna take you completely out of your comfort zone. However, when it does and you learn to adapt, amazing things will follow. Life requires us to make sacrifices sometimes, I recently made a change that has caused a huge financial cut back for the sake of happiness and I am so grateful for what has come out of it. I am genuinely living my dream, I may not be as financially well off (for now) but you see, I measure my wealth by quality of life. I’m the wealthiest I’ve ever been and because of this wealth, I know everything else will fall into place if I continue to be led by my passions…You have my moral support to do what makes you happy. Be happy my loves. Happy heart day to you. Also, I just realized tomorrow will mark a full year that I’ve been writing up dares almost every Sundays, so this “dare” could not have been more suiting because at that time I took a leap of faith to share myself in a way I never have before…what a special moment for me right here, right now. Thank you for being here with me. XOXO
Sunday February 7th 2016♥
I DARE YOU to make yourself smile. In any way you feel suiting because when you smile, you become this beacon of light my loves =) Your beautiful and you know it!!!
Sunday January 31st 2016♥
ALLEN DARES YOU to open up about the reasons for why one may say “I’m sorry” or express why one would be thankful. It’s always refreshing hear someone take responsibility and feel remorseful for their actions and I think it’s even more important to let those you love, know why they are loved. It will warm up our hearts to hear why we are appreciated =) Thanks Allen for sharing your dare with all of us…Keep them coming friends. Until next Sunday, blessed be my loves.
Sunday January 24th 2016♥

I DARE YOU to not care about what other people may think of you and to care more about your environment and surroundings.
Sunday December 27th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to LIVE and let LIVE. Whatever that may mean to you, perhaps it’s making the choice to be vegan or accepting and allowing others to live as they please. And if how they please is not at your best interest, then let them pass like water under the bridge. At this point in my life I only want healthy relationships, open and honest ones where COMMUNICATION is vital. I cherish connections that matter, so if it’s easier for you to go, then I won’t ask you to stay. And if it’s too hard for you to stay, then I will ask you to go. Stay happy and healthy my loves.
Sunday December 20th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to STOP living vicariously through others. Regardless in what way, just stop it. It seems like that is exactly what social media is designed to do. I mean, why are we watching videos of everyday people going to places and doing things we wish to be doing. These “dares” are meant to help you LIVE your life to it’s fullest potential and if you find yourself online perhaps this is a place you can find inspiration from =) If you really wana be bold, please help me raise $3000 so WE can build a home for a family living in slums of Nicaragua. The link is above and below for your convenience…Thanks for the consideration and I hope to make a massive impact with you. Stay beautiful my loves.
Sunday December 13th 2015♥

Sunday November 30th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to do as Bruce Lee so wisely advised us. ” Empty your mind…Be formless, shapeless, like water. If you put it into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put it into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend”. 1<3
Sunday November 22nd 2015♥

Sunday November 15th 2015♥

Blessed be my loves.
Sunday November 8th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to open your life and world up to new love. Whatever that love may mean to you, perhaps it’s a new hobby, a new art piece, a new relationship or even a new animal family member. I waited about eight years before I felt ready enough to open my heart and home for my new love. I am so excited, I can’t wait to meet her =D
Sunday November 1st 2015♥
I DARE YOU to join me in this very moment, close your eyes and count your blessings with me, like meow….Feel better? I do…It can be easy to forget these things in the chaos of life but rest assure that what ever distress you may be experiencing now, that too will pass. Stay calm, keep your eye on the prize and continue expressing your passion. Stay bold and beautiful my loves.
Sunday October 25th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to take a stand and cut off any negative energy source in your life. As an example, like how the majority joined forces and got rid of Harper. Yes, this can be a challenging task but once it’s done you will thank yourself and probably say “Good RIDDANCE”. I know that’s what I said 😉 Happy Sunday Funday to all.
Sunday October 18th 2015♥

Sunday September 20th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to share (with the world or just start with one person like I did) a secret talent or passion that you have but have been reluctant to express before because maybe you were too shy or didn’t have enough confidence or desire, until NOW. Let all that self oppression or doubt go and shine like the bright star that you are. Do it my loves…I believe in YOU!
Sunday September 13th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to make a list of your goals and aspirations. I know you already know that writing your dreams down on paper is one of the first steps that can actually help you make them become reality but sometimes we all need a little reminder and extra push. So here it is. Now step away from your electronic device(s), grab your pen and pad and be inspired while you jot away 😉 Keep this list of attainable dreams in constant sight as your own encouragement to continue your pursuit to happiness. Believe you can achieve, act on it and the rest is yours for the taking. Happy Sunday my loves.
Sunday September 6th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to have a kick ass week!!! Salute, to a beautiful life!
Sunday August 30th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to harness your inner fire and take actio8n. Now that we’ve soaked in all the fun in the sun, we mustn’t let this great energy dissipate. Gather your thoughts and make something happen whether it be journaling, crafting, cooking, or pulling strings to start your own youtube channel. Whatever the case just DO IT =) Happy Sunday and see you next week.
Sunday August 23rd 2015♥
I DARE YOU to reach out. Whether it be reaching for the stars because nothing amazing in life comes easily or reaching out to an acquaintance or complete stranger. In the last few weeks I found myself taking the initiative to make contact with both men and woman who I don’t really know and offering my support. After all, I am encouraging a world of togetherness so this very reason is what’s been helping me overcome my “shyness” because believe it or not I am an introvert who has become an extrovert over the years, I am an omnivert if you will ;D
Here’s a little story I wana share which inspired this weeks dare. Coming home from Vietnam I was rerouted to Tokyo since my flight was delayed. On the plane I had a brief encounter with a gentlemen that made me feel inclined to do something I’ve never done before. Ask a man out for dinner lol…I was reluctant at first because I promised myself I would welcome my next birthday single but the warmth of his smile made him endearing enough for me to reach out. The act of reaching out went far beyond the intention of two people getting to know each other but on a personal level this was evidence that I am evolving, that the stubborn is dissolving and the once stubbornly independent woman is now just independent but OPEN and reaching out to love. WOW!!! This experience is the cherry on top of my already life changing trip. To come to this point in my life is beyond words, I have a new take on life and I’m stoked about it. You never know how profound a simple act may be for the receiver or the doer or both and this is a prime example. I gained so much out of this but the date itself haha, unfortunately he lives in Japan, just my luck I know but I am so happy I did it because I don’t want to leave this life asking “What if?!”. David IF your reading this I hope you feel fuzzy inside =) Keep smiling and thank you for emanating a warmth this world needs more of, I wish you well in love and life.
Be the FIRST to share your story of reaching out and you might just gain a little something from Vietnam =) Until next Sunday, stay bold and beautiful my loves.
Sunday August 16th 2015♥
I DARE YOU to accept all that is meant to be no matter how hard. In this time of healing I’ve come to realize how important not only forgiveness and releasing negative energy is but also how critical it is for one to accept truths. The hardest truths to deal with are the ones we must learn to accept the most. It can be heartbreaking but sometimes in life, (as we all know) we just can’t always get what we want and no matter how hard we try to build a solid relationship with someone, that relationship may not ever come to be, even if bounded by blood. Accepting these realities will help you move on and focus on what’s important which is making sure YOU take care of your own well being in order to save yourself before you can save anyone else. There is no sense in putting forth effort where it is unappreciated.
I will be coming home soon with goodies from Vietnam to share.

So I’m still away and lost track of time ;D

I DARE YOU to try a new type of fruit, of the exotic type. Make a trip to TNT or an Asian grocery store and try mangosteen, it’s so delicious and neat looking or star fruit, great for garnish or tossed into a fruit salad. If you wana be a real G, give durian a try. Though I do forewarn you, durian has been known to smell like hell but taste like heaven, it also looks wicked knarly 🙂 Definitely all worth a try at least once in this lifetime, enjoy my sweetness.

I DARE YOU to have your fruit for breakfast or before a big meal. This is one of the simplest ways to change your eating habits for health benefits. The reason is because when fruit is ingested after a meal, it sits at the top of your stomach waiting to get digested and in that time it is fermenting which creates an acidic environment. This is where cancer cells thrive. So when you can, try to eat your fruits first and give it some time to digest before you have your feast. Trust me, this is especially difficult for me now because there is so many delicious exotic fruits here in Vietnam ;D

I DARE YOU to stay committed to whatever it is that you committed yourself to because chances are, whatever it is, it’s for the better (if not, figure it out) Like for example now, I am exhausted from having a lot of fun in the sun and camping with only beautiful souls. All I want to do is have shower and crash however I made a commitment to post a new dare every Sunday and as long as I remember to, I will follow through with it. So so should you =) Be happy my loves.

I DARE YOU to let go of the idea of TIME, if even just for brief moments in your life. The purpose is to relieve yourself of the stresses created by this man made illusion we call time. This may seem to not make any sense due to the fact that almost everything we do in life revolves around getting something done by a certain time. For example the pressure we (sometimes others) put on ourselves to be married and have kids or to start a new business endeavor or to have X amount of dollars saved up within a particular time frame, the list goes on. I say f*ck it! I am consciously trying to approach all these milestones in my life in a different way. It`s not to say that I think we shouldn`t set goals to accomplish sooner then later or that we should be irresponsible. This challenge is meant to help you take the tension off yourself when life does not pan out the way you expect it to. Remember that it`s okay and cherish what you do have in your life at this very moment, abundance my love, you just have to want to see it otherwise you will only turn a blind eye. I strive to live fully in the present moment, staying true to my path, having faith that everything will unfold as it should and reminding myself that time is just an illusion and ceases to exist anywhere else in the Universe. Our Father Sun rises and sets upon us to keep us in sync with Mother Nature, so we can learn to live harmoniously with the environment. Because of this, may we all live in peace with ourselves so this healing energy can emanate back to the Universe, our Universe.

I DARE YOU to cut all the plastic can holders that you come across whether it came from your six/eight pack or ones you found on the ground. With our summer heat invoking more thirst quenching beverages, we can’t forget (even if we may be under the influence) that these death traps can and do end up in our lively ocean. I’ve been picking them off the ground every single time I see one and even dug through a garbage bin because I noticed a few plastic can holders that were not getting cut before being tossed out. Remember it’s ALL about preventative measures my friends, let’s take care of our the animals we share the environment with. Our conscious minds will make all the difference in the world. XOXO

I DARE YOU to reread and act on the previous dares that you may have found challenging at that time to take on. Do it now, again even. I know for myself forgiving and releasing has been hard and so I will be focusing more energy on this. Have fun in the sun beauties.

I DARE YOU to stop making excuses for not putting yourself first! We often fall into bad habits or quickly and easily say “I’m too busy” or “it’s too hard”. What ever tired excuse YOU make up for yourself, it really just sounds like this to me, “Blah blah f*cking blah!” If you want something, then GET IT! It’s yours for the taking! If you want to feel a certain way, then DO what it takes to embody that emotion. Remember you know yourself best, so stop second guessing yourself and put YOU first. Always be kind to yourself as well. I love you and happy father’s day to all the amazing men out there with a child who needs you. You are the roof that makes a house a home!

Life got hectic for me but when in the future this happens again I DARE YOU to revisit a past challenge and take it on!!!
Sunday, June 7th 2015 ♥
WE DARE YOU (Dino & I) to pay it forward. Share a random act of kindness with a stranger. Whether it be you buying a coffee for a person behind you in the line up, or walking an old lady across the street, giving a street artist your token of appreciation or taking the time to acknowledge another persons presence.

I DARE YOU to be DILIGENT, with what ever it is that you commit yourself to, maybe it’s even being diligent with keeping up with the weekly dares ;D. As I am constantly evolving, it’s become apparent to me that more often then not, we fall through on commitments we make to ourselves. This is usually the result of (but not limited to) our impatience when it comes to getting what we desire and having to experience progress over time. We now live in a world of instant gratification and forget to enjoy the journey as it pans out, every step is a lesson. Nothing good in life that will stand the test of time comes easy or without diligence and perseverance. I’m not talking about what is tangible, what I am talking about is for you to realize when you dare to dive inward. So my friends, let us be diligent in our ways to attain the quality of life in which we choose to live. I wish you well always.

I DARE YOU to make a telephone CALL to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while or have been thinking of. We forget how easy it is to have a conversation and to hear each others voices. I love talking on the phone when it’s appropriate but even I don’t make phone calls as much as I’d like over text messaging. So basically if you have my number, call me from time to time 😀 Would love to hear from you…

I DARE YOU to fill up an empty glass jar or water/pop bottle (ideally around 500ml) and place it in the toilet tank, in an area that will not disrupt the flushing. This will help reduce the amount of water used per flush. Statistic show that the average human (according to the World Toilet Organization (WTO),) uses a toilet 2,500 times year, or six to eight times daily . However, not all toilet uses are followed by a flush. With older toilets using from 3.5, 5, or even up to 7 gallons of water with every flush, YIKES!! Now, I’m no math wizard but that’s A LOT of water usage and being the water lover that I am, I came up with the simplest way anyone and everyone can reduce their water consumption, You literally do it ONCE and forget it. It took me only 30.4 seconds and now I’m set with yet another I way I control and reduce my water usage. Imagine collectively and as an individual how much water we can save with every flush!?!? Call me a what you want but the potential is so exciting to me. Remember my loves, running fresh water is FINITE and not everyone has access to clean water to drink let alone flush away. May we think of the many lives who live in poverty and in their honor let us treat water as the SACRED ELEMENT OF LIFE THAT IT IS!!! Thank you in advance for caring. I love you so!

I DARE YOU to give a stranger or someone less familiar a genuine complement. Whether he/she is the same sex as you or opposite, just tell that person you think they look lovely because you truly think so. Sure it can be hard sometimes to get out of your self created bubble to speak with someone you don’t know, let a lone tell that person you think they look great. But it can be as simple as you being in a coffee shop and saying “Excuse me but I just wanted to let you know I think you look amazing when your smiling” or ” hey…sweet shades bro, I like your style” and continue on your way through life. There is always an opportunity to put a smile on someones face to brighten their day with the power of your honest and kind words. If this has happened to you, then you know exactly how it made you feel right?? C’mon let’s spread the love y’all and it WILL come back around to you.

I DARE YOU to HUG like you mean it. Embrace this person with your soul and hug HEART to HEART. This means for both people to direct their body to the right of each other, so that both hearts beat together as one when in contact. You will FEEL the instant change this will make in such a beautiful form of physical contact and affection. I want a hug from YOU next time I see your lovely face.

I DARE YOU to stay committed with FORGIVING & RELEASING. I feel so strongly about this challenge that I want to give it more time to really soak in and to support those who need the encouragement to continue down this healing path. Happiness is a choice and when we make the effort to count our blessings and let go of our baggage we will gain that balance. Stay strong my loves and be happy okay. Blessed be.

I DARE YOU to FORGIVE & RELEASE all that no longer serves you whether it be material item/s, emotions or even a relationship that is just not healthy in one way or another. This can be a daunting/difficult task and may take some time to complete, depending on what your letting go. Just remember that the end result will be a huge weight off your shoulders, giving you the power to focus your energy where it will be perpetuated as opposed to only being absorbed. I am currently going through this experience and the desire alone is thrilling and peaceful at the same time. Enjoy and savor the process, it’ll make it that much better when you say your sweet good bye.
