In case you missed it, check out my coverage of Caribbean Style & Culture Fashion & Awards Showcase 2013 on KALI TV! Wow 3 years already? Time flies! Check out the link below! 

If there is one thing that I’ve learned in 20+ years living on this planet is that the best project you'll ever work on is you! Cliché yes but 100 percent fact! To be frank, you can’t even control other people! Good chances are if your boyfriend is a jerk, you can’t transform him into your prince charming! Total waste of time! The ONLY person you have control over is YOURSELF. 

 

Here are some tips to become the best version of yourself. FYI I’m no expert. Just sharing my life experiences. 

Build a Relationship with God: God first! No matter what your religious background or your belief system, having a strong relationship with a higher power makes this journey called life a lot easier! 

 

Set Huge Goals: Absolutely huge! Why not? You never know what you're capable of until you try!

 

Challenge Yourself: Do something that scares you! Scratch that, do something that terrifies you! Great things never came from comfort zones.

Be You: One of the biggest challenges in life is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else. I’ve stood out my entire life and I’m not just talking about my height! LOL! I’ve learned to accept myself the way I am! No one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you! 

 

Eat Healthy, Exercise & Relax: How can you become the best version of yourself when you’re not taking care of your body! It’s impossible!

Give Back: Whether you donate money or time, giving back makes you feel super good about yourself! 

Cry and Move On: Allow yourself to cry and then move on: I’m the biggest cry baby! Seriously! I cry for everything! It's ok to cry, it's ok to hurt, but feeling sorry for yourself won’t change anything! Get up and keep it moving!

 

Pursue Your Passion: Let’s face it, we spend a lot of time at work so you might as well chose a field that you love to do.

Be Positive: Hate to break it to you but life is always going to have obstacles. Even in our darkness moments, a positive attitude will make a world of difference. Also surround yourself with positive people and be nice to people! Do you know someone that drains the life out of you? Exactly! Don’t be that person!

 

Hope my nuggets of wisdom can empower you guys to become the best version of yourself but remember it’s ultimately your decision! Remember we're all works in progress!

EVENT RECAP: AIDS WALK & RUN BALTIMORE

Written by

Baltimore, MD: I had the honor of emceeing Chase Brexton Health Care's second annual AIDS Walk & Run Baltimore! The event raised over $87,000 to expand HIV/AIDS education, testing, treatment and related care in the region. Despite the cold and rainy morning, over 400 participants came to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore on Sunday, May 1, to walk, run and volunteer to support Chase Brexton.

Funds raised this year will help furnish two new mobile HIV testing, education and assistance vehicles, which were unveiled at the event. Proceeds from last year's event were used to purchase the two mobile units.Baltimore's rate of infection is 7.5 times higher than the national average, according to the CDC. HIV/AIDS is the fourth leading cause of death in the city of Baltimore, but at least one in six residents has not been tested for HIV. Baltimore City alone accounts for 41 percent of all new cases in Maryland.

For anyone who missed the event but would still like to donate to improve access to HIV/AIDS testing and care in Baltimore, Chase Brexton is accepting donations through June 30, 2016,atwww.BaltimoreAIDSWalk.org. Check out the promo below! 

 

St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands: If you’re traveling to St. Thomas, consider a day trip to Lindquist Beach. Nestled in Smith Park Bay, a protected 21 acre beachfront park, Lindquist Beach is paradise for my fellow mermaids!

Lindquist Beach is stunningly beautiful! I was dazzled by the crystal calm water and soft sand. A major perk, Lindquist Beach isn't crowded! You won’t find any fancy restaurants or even bars here, just laid back island vibes surrounded by Mother Nature!

I literally spent days here! Relaxing, meditating and being one with the universe. Snorkeling can be founded on the right side of the beach. Let’s not forget the spectacular view of St. John and the British Virgin Islands!

Admission fees: Residents with ID$2. Non-Residents $ 5. Car parking $2. Children under 13 are free. If you love nature, than Lindquist Beach St. Thomas is a must! Visit my Facebook and  IG for even more photos @Chardellemoore! Cheers!

 

Baltimore, MD: Motivational Moore is in the building! Last Sunday, I had the honor of serving as the keynote speaker at From Girls to Women Summit, held at the Hilton Baltimore North-Pikesville.

 

Founded by the beautiful Michelle Davis, the summit is an annual event created to empower, inspire and uplift teen girls ages 13-18. 

92Q radio personality DJ AngelBaby  hosted the event with DJ Shay on the ones and twos! 

Attendees enjoyed hands on workshops, self-esteem building activities, live performances and a panel discussion featuring women leaders across diverse industries. 

What I love about events like these is the fact they truly impact lives! Too many girls and young women struggle with low self-esteem! Let’s change that. It’s truly a blessing to be using my gifts to empower the community!  I had a blast!
