Today I decided to-do a roundup post of all my recent posts that gained a lot of attention via readership. My 26th birthday is next month! So, for the month of March I am going to be opening up in ways I haven't yet to you guys. I have a few fun posts planned, along with some BTS (Behind-The-Scenes) and insights to the future of my career. Until then, enjoy these previous posts and be sure to catch up so you don't miss out on anything!
I can’t believe it’s going to be 3 years this month since Who I Am: Poetry gave my career the jumpstart it needed. I put some thought into this post as I reflect on what this represents for me as I’m turning 26 this year.
I went from a person left to feel worthless to trending across social media, published by magazines, gaining thousands of social media followers which has allowed me to do other projects and continues to open doors for me. I went from a brown hair guy with acne on my face to a blonde doing photo shoots and blogging about my life.
I don’t know about you, but literally my mind is always all over the place. One second I’m on top of the world, then I enter a state of panic and it feels like everything around is ending. It’s so dramatic I can’t even deal sometimes. It leaves me mentally exhausted. Organizing stuff I simply don’t find it fun and honestly I dread the task, so I would push it aside—a big no-no if you crave a peaceful mind and need to get stuff done. Trial and error played a huge factor in finding the right formula for myself and I’m going to share 7 of my own fabulous secret tips that help me keep my life in order…most of the time.
As my boyfriend always says, If I am going to do something it has to be on my terms only or I won't do it. With these tips and tricks I was able to get organized on my terms!

From years of studying psychology, the social scene and dedicating my work to helping others I learned 11 growth hacks through my own journey and speaking to a variety of people that can help you achieve a happier life.

This is the first full-length piece of poetry I've written in such a longtime and I'm very excited to share it with you all. Inspired from a transformation I've undergone emotionally, physically and spiritually, but with my creative twist of course. It's my favorite poem I've ever written and most empowering. In my opinion it's my best as well! I hope the wait was worth it, because I know some of you have been itching for a new one. I now present you with 'Queen.' Enjoy!
Finally realize nothing can stop me...I’m a Queen.- Paul Travis
Ideally everyone has a common knowledge or have heard about affirmations but the role they play psychologically can be very beneficial. The word affirmation was first originated from the Latin term affirmare, which means “to make steady, strengthen.” It’s scientifically proven they purify our thoughts by giving restructure to the dynamic of our brain.

People work differently. It's what makes the world go round. With that being said I wanted to share 10 simple steps I took and am taking to keep my happiness alive in 2017.
